Slartibartfast: "Perhaps I'm old and tired, but I think that the chances of finding out what's actually going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say, 'Hang the sense of it,' and keep yourself busy. I'd much rather be happy than right any day."

Arthur: "And are you?"

: "Ah, no. (laughs) Well, that's where it all falls down, of course."

there is a reason to avoid amateur made stuff...

... if you are an ethical assholic bastard like me.
here I am listening to a new album by an independent musician.. and I am in love with his musical ability - as long as we are discussing his music.

his flat voice is making me cringe and just serves as a reminder why I also do not read a friend of mine's fan fic.. I just could not crush someone with a bad review if I thought it had faults and yet I am too honest to either lie or keep silent.


Ghost Tiger recommends now that its been forever maybe sneak a read of just a short story.

yaaaa.. that would just turn out peachy.

you just know I'm gonna open my big mouth no matter what. and as for the chance of it being good? Of course it will be good to some various degree, I just have a habit of latching on to the littlest faults when it comes to media. I mean, I'm picky with my TV media and one assumes that goes through quite the vetting process.

on second thought, ignore that last bit.

Current TV trends demonstrate a throw mud at a wall approach to script writing.

John Conner Robot in REAL Terminator Salvation

commented a few posts ago about how I had heard A) john Conner would die and be a robot from that point on, and B) in an actual interview with McG (the director) he said the end of his movie would piss everyone off but thats ok with him.

Friend saw the movie and said it was a bland ending and I couldnt believe conner wasnt replaced with a robot by the end.. I mean WTF? That bland ending couldnt have been what McG was talkin about!

then I found this. H-O-L-Y S-H-I-T!

well this explains it all doesnt it?!?!?!?

I hope the begining of the next (Ha! there wont be any next terminator!!!) puts the original ending back into play.. *SIGH*

misc odds and ends

Just caught the tail (heh) end of the movie "the howling 2" and they had a punk band, maybe made up just for the soundtrack, playing in a club - obviously the club was real (or was it?) but I found it weird that it had "alien sex fiend" and "the cramps" scribbled on the wall.

did cbgb's have bands sign the walls? If not which club was it? or was it all a sham..?

On another note.. pinochio came out on an anniversary edition disc about the same time as a certain film was hitting the cinemas. In the commercial they said something about a blue fairy that can make your dreams come true.. so I suddenly blurted out, "oh you mean Doctor Manhattan?"

I never saw that particular tangent before. thanks disney for the timing on the dvd release.

List of heroes that do the multiverse jump!

I refer to the mediaverse in the title of my blog because the fictional character I created to match my name, Kaneda Jones, jumps through a multiverse made up of all forms of scripted media, and since he knows somehow that he is in a constructed reality he calls it the mediaverse.

I was inspired to create the fictional Kaneda Jones, in part, due to the multitude of characters written thru out the massive writings for TV and books who could walk thru the walls between realities.

for your review I now present a list of all those I can remember off the top of my head.

First off, the ones either inspiring of or just so damn similar to, Kaneda Jones of the mediaverse:

Doctor Who

although Doctor Who jumps places on an almost daily basus, it is in the doctor who serial "The Mind Robber" (1968) in which his tardis lands in a world made exclusively out of the mind of a kidnapped earth author. The author wants the doctor to take his place so in the end they duel it out using the fictional troops they can dream up.. very interesting when compared to what little fiction I have written about Kaneda Jones (except mine is more contemporary).

The Mind Robber fan trailer on youtube


In 1996 DC and Marvel comics went about melding their two respective universes for a big event called the amalgam universe. To help fecilitate the process, and to help cracking the two universes apart when it was over, they created a hero who jumped between the two comic book worlds. His name was Axel Asher but his hero name was Access - man I hate how comic book guys have to rhyme or match their real names with their alias!

The Wikipedia article states:
"Access is now a native of both universes and his duty is to keep them separate. If they start to overlap, the universes will merge into the Amalgam Universe once again. Access must move from one universe to the other keeping people from crossing over. If he stays in one place too long, he can cause spontaneous crossovers to occur. Access usually works out situations like this without anyone noticing that he is involved (this is done to explain how the subsequent DC/Marvel crossovers occur. Stories where DC and Marvel heroes appear on a "shared Earth" are believed to be dimensional fluxes where the two universes have begun to merge again. It has also been explained that once Access has restored the timelines, the characters forget about the crossover)"

and refering to his powers..

"Access has the ability to create interdimensional gateways between the two universes. He can use these gateways to teleport himself as well as summon others to him. He also has the ability to travel in time when crossing universes. He can feel the presence of anything from one universe in the other. In addition, Access has recently learned that he can create an "amalgamation" of two people he touches from each universe."

I keep writing Kaneda doing the same kinda thing but its nice to be able to access all of pop culture (including video games!) instead of just the stale Marvel and DC worlds

Magik and Spiral

Both the character Magik and the character Spiral, from the marvel comics universe, used swords to open dimensional portals to hop from one spot to another. In Both cases they use magical energies but in Magik's case her teleportation is also her mutant ability and in Spiral's case she uses arcane magical cyborg tech. Both of these characters, beloved by me during the eighties, inspired my fictional Kaneda Jones to cross dimensions by ripping the fabric of space and time using a sword with a TV remote as a handle. The remote sword also owes its remote'ness to the show sliders I guess.. heh.

Spiral at wikipedia

Not inspiration for my Kaneda Jones character but cool jumping anyways

Kamen Rider Decade

In Kamen Rider Decade (2009) there is a melding of worlds between the last nine Kamen Rider series and the current one. Because of this the current Kamen Rider is destined to take out all the previous Kamen Riders to save multiple dimensions.. how cool is that? Considering just a few Kamen Riders ago he was riding a time crossing train so he could go forward or back in time ALA "Quantum Leap" this just means Kamen Rider has been a home for universe fuck ups lately. I suggest to them that the next Kamen Rider be set before the big bang.. that would be reeeeealy screwed up!

new images from the Terminator: Salvation movie.


he says right at the bottom of that article that the ending will piss people off. There was a story a month or more ago about a leaked script that had john connor dying and a robot taking his place.. I can see that being a ending that would piss people off. Since its a trilogy I thought they would end part one on a diffrent kinda cliffhanger but I must admit that would be a great setup for film two and three. you can watch Matrix 1 and not care about 2 or 3.. this would make terminator 5 manditory. bastards heheh
