This is an image of a strangely moving, recurring dream sequence from Cat People, the 1982 romantic horror movie starring Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell. The movie is about shapeshifters, specifically dangerous, black leopards. Irena Gallier is a young woman who keeps having a recurring dream about black leopards, eventually […]
If you’ve ever worried about which cities would be the worst to be in when a zombie apocalypse starts, well, here’s an infographic that ranks the worst cities in the United States. Not unexpectedly, New York tops the list (which just happens to be where I’ve set my upcoming zombie […]
Our inspiration this week is the long-dead volcano on Mars, Olympus Mons. As you can see in the accompanying image, the mountain is literally as big as the entire state of Arizona. It has a height of 13.6 miles (or 22 kilometers or 72,000 feet, take your pick). In short, […]
Today’s mashup is a fake book cover featuring the inimitable pulp hero, Doc Savage, vs. the Terminator, from the famous movie franchise. Doc Savage was featured in his own magazine in the 1930s and 1940s, a response to a similar magazine featuring the Shadow. All of the Doc Savage stories […]

OK, yes, I know, it’s probably not politically correct. But it was a long time ago. This picture purports to show the true cause behind the sinking of the Titanic way back in 1912. Clearly, the tragedy resulted from a collision between the Titanic and Godzilla.
Sometimes the most interesting things come from mixing together two “ingredients” that might otherwise seem an unlikely combination. So, here’s the fight between Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones…with light sabers. The entire scene is also available on YouTube. Search for it…you won’t be sorry.
I’m at the Potbelly Sandwich Shop, where I’ve ordered a salad for myself, a sandwich for my wife and a few accessories. I get up to the cash register, they ring up my order and I reach into my back for my wallet…which isn’t there. I apologize, make my excuses […]
This little bundle of cuteness is Bentley, at the age of about six weeks. In this photo, he’s about ten pounds, although he eventually ended being about 130 pounds. Gotta love Lab Rottweilers. OK, I know this has nothing to do with science fiction, but, well, who doesn’t like the […]
