SF/F Links: March/April Roundup


A little delayed, but finally I have some links for you all. There are loads more, so I think I’m going to have to go with a weekly schedule so it doesn’t pile up like it is doing now. In any case, here are the links:

  1. Ok, firstly, no one is removing kidneys from my vagina.Babies are one thing–they don’t make holes in bits that didn’t have holes before–organs are a whole other thing.

    Secondly, good grief the US is backwards.

    I love that survival tip list. 😀

    If you’re going to keep linking to those damn articles on life from space, will you PLEASE ACCEPT I’M RIGHT ABOUT IT? (The link takes you to the not-quite-human list, btw)

    Actually, scratch that. The latter half of the links are ones you already put up. :p

  2. OMG – I agree with the kidney’s comment & totally amazing that it is happening. I totally thought further with the kidney to the pancreas (from being diabetic) to the liver, etc. Uda *LOL*

    Great links as usual! OH and I love SF Signal too … I checked it today and they harped on No. 5 from Short Circuit. There may be a remake in our future. The funny part is that I have a friend with kids of 8 and 7 whom watched the movie and the kids love it 🙂 It makes me think how my father ingrained 50’s music into my montage. I am not sure if that is good or bad.

    Happy Day!

  3. SF Signal is really awesome. I love their site a lot. I heard about that Short Circuit remake. My question is: why? I mean, what’s the point? Yeah, it was a decent movie for its time, but it’s not like the greatest film ever or anything. We all remember it because it was probably one of the first movies with a huge robot as the main character that wasn’t murdering people.
    Not to mention: Charlton Heston died.
    I didn’t like him personally, but Planet of the Apes = the awesome.


    Oh and nothing wrong with 50s music AT all. And just a note, you don’t need the ‘ in the 50s. I’m not being mean, but I used to do the same thing until I realized that you don’t need it because you’re not referring to what belongs to the 50s, but to a period of time. You don’t say “those are the 50’s things” unless someone’s name is 50. You see what I mean? It’s really a weird rule and I didn’t get that for a long time. I think Lindsey forced that one into me by accident. Just being helpful :D, not anal :P.

    Have a good one 😀
