Lucy (2014), directed, written and edited by Luc Besson.

Itlooks like an interesting film, at least from the trailers. A bit Neo, I think, but could be done well. Not all familiar tropes are cliches. 

BUT THAT PREMISE! It is absolutely a myth that we only use 10% of our brains. We use 100%, 100% of the time. Sick of that bit of copy-paste e-mail/chainmail bunk, it needs to stop. 

It hurts to hear Morgan Freeman’s voice peddling that in the teaser trailer. One can hope the actual film is smarter than the trailer makes it seem.

(Now Hanson’s “Lucy" is stuck in my head. I know, I know, it should be "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," but it’s not. It just isn’t. Not this time.)

Liking the new Minecraft banners in the latest snapshot. 

I think it would be fun for each server to keep a heraldic registry, so each player can register their specific banner.

The various things that Jareth does with the crystal balls (rolling them around his arms and in his hands and so forth) are not camera tricks or any other kind of special effect. They are actually done by choreographer Michael Moschen, who is an accomplished juggler. Moschen was actually crouched behind Bowie with his arm(s) replacing Bowie’s. Unlike a typical Muppet performance, however, he had no video screen to view his performance. In other words, his manipulations were performed completely blind.

Scenes from L.A.’s growing magician problem.
7-7-14, Los Angeles. New graffiti was found at L.A.’s George Carlin High School today marking a new height in the occult graffiti epidemic that plagues the city.  Said L.A. Police Commissioner Crowley, “They say the chalk washes away but that’s not the problem here.  The issue is that these sigils are made by amateur occultists who don’t always know what they’re doing.  They mean to mark their ethereal turf but several of these alignments are capable of awakening Samael.”
Samael, last seen slaughtering the first born sons of Egypt, could not be reached for comment.  We at FIMJU wanted more expert testimony however so we invited the mummified head of Necromancer John Dee from its tomb in England for an interview. Said the archetypical wizard, “Where am I?  Why hast thou awakened me? Oh how I long to return to the sweet embrace of death, for my every moment awake is an eternity of pain!”
Troubling words indeed.

Hey, now there are some high-quality play-through of the 2007  Silent Hill: The Arcade game!

It’s a rail shooter, and you’d think it would have nothing to offer the franchise, but it surprises. It adds to the lore of Silent Hill, focusing on the Little Baroness, the ship that sank in Toluca Lake in 1918, drowning all aboard. 

From Silent Hill 2:

"Toluca Lake, the town’s main tourist attraction.This clear, beautiful lake has another side as well.It may seem like just a typical ghost story that you might find in any number of old towns across the country.But in this case, the legend is true.
On a fog-bound November day in 1918, the Little Baroness, a ship filled with tourists, failed to returnto port.

A newspaper article from back then simply says “It most likely sunk for some reason”. Despite an extensive police search, not a single fragment of the ship nor any of the 14 bodies of passengers or crew has ever been recovered to this day.
In 1939, an even stranger incident occurred.
[There are many pages torn out]

Many corpses rest at the bottom of this lake. Their bony hands reach up towards the boats thatpass overhead. Perhaps they reach for their comrades.”.The rail-shooter seems like an odd choice for a Silent Hill game. Wikipedia explains what a rail shooter is: “In a rail shooter the player control is limited to directing where to fire a virtual gun or move their avatar around the screen; the player does not control the path their avatar takes from the start to the end (although they may be able to pause that movement), as if the player is tied to a rail like a roller coaster.”In Silent Hill Arcade, the players have no free will, except to try to defend themselves as the story pulls them along whether they want to go or not. Aside from a couple path forks the player can choose, the experience is an overwhelming rush from beginning to end, as implacable as a storm, impersonal as lightning. (As an aside, I would like to recommend the Silent Hill playthroughs and analyses of The Gaming Muse. She’s not all the well-known yet, but in my opinion one of the best.)

#Constantine isn’t bi? #BiBlazer #BiConstantine

I’m a big fan of Hellblazer, and I thought the Constantine film was okay, but had nothing to do with the John Constantine of Hellblazer

The new, proposed series looks interesting. At least Constantine isn’t American (though I think he’s Welsh, not Newcastle). But NBC has clearly stated that one interesting aspect of Constantine’s character will be changed. 

Particularly as this is a group wildly underrepresented in media, I think it’s irresponsible to make that change.
