Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

For the Forum Fashionistas: the (in)famous Mr. Blackwell died over the weekend.

Last year, he put Victoria Beckham, Amy Winehouse, and Mary-Kate Olsen on his worst dressed list in the Top 3, saying that Mary-Kate "resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane."

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

"They're breeding?" gasped the literary critic.  "But how is that possible?  I thought all Michael Crichtons were male!"

"They were," mused the chaotician.  "But life will not be contained, life breaks free.  Life... finds a way."

"I knew we shouldn't have filled in the missing parts of his genetic code with hermaphrodite DNA," moaned the scientist.

Just then the critic spotted three Michael Crichtons in the nearby trees, gazing down on the party with sinister leers.  "Let's go," he said.

satyr...

You just recycled Michael Crichton's plot. You know, his only plot. That poor thing's gonna fall apart.

Granted, some of his books were entertaining, but... come on. One plot.


It sucks that he's dead, though-- cancer is a shitty way to die. emot-frown

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

He was no great writer, but Jurassic Park, Sphere, and The Andromeda Strain were among my first forays into grownup books when I was a kid, so happy, if mediocre memories.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

I'm glad you enjoyed my parody, Ragnarok and Yasha.  It was that or the scene where the fat guy flees the facility in a hurricane after betraying his employers, only to run across a Michael Crichton with acidic saliva.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Actually, I like his books up until a point. Sphere was good, Jurassic Park was good... but there's one that no one ever talks about that I think is really the best thing he's ever written. It's called Travels, and it's semi-autobiographical. A bunch of short observation-style pieces collected together in one work that really made an impact on me growing up. I wish I had that book now.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

I read a lot of his books in early middle school, Sphere being my favorite, and even though I didn't really care all that much for most of his newer stuff, it cannot really put a dent in the nostalgia I feel for his work.  I am a complete weakling for nostalgia.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Sphere is my favorite too.  The first time I read it, I finished the last half in one afternoon.  I should read it again, it's been so long since the last time I did.

I refuse to ever watch the movie.
