Lets Talk About Star Trek: Discovery

Star Trek Discovery Logo
 

 Ok, 12 episodes into a series’ run it an odd place to suddenly cover it. And honestly I had planned to cover it sooner, but life and stuff. In a way though I’m glad. Giving Star Trek: Discovery a good run at it will let me better analyse and write about it. Those who know me will know I’m a big Trekkie. I grew up in Trek’s golden age, sharing my childhood with Next Generation, Voyager, and my favourite Deep Space9. Later in life, i caught up on the movies, Original Series, and even enjoyed some episodes of Enterprise. I own more than one book written in Klingon and am working on designing a Star Trek tattoo in the next […]

Does “The Last Jedi” hint at Rey going Grey ?

I love theorising, especially fan theories about canons I love. Usually, though, I need to be shown them before I notice all those weird little coincidences. This time, however, I actually noticed something myself. And straight away at that. Now I’m sure I’m not the only one, but I tell you I was rather pleased with myself. My marvellous revelation came while watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi a few weeks ago. I believe there is, or was, the intention for Rey to be a Grey Jedi. FYI, Some spoilers for Last Jedi Ahead! Now the less nerdy of you, not that well versed with the Star Wars Extended Universe might be asking “what is a Grey Jedi?” Over the […]

I AM OUT OF HERE

This is it folks. I am done. I am finished. I am out of here. 5 years of doing 925 Rebellion. Close to 1000 articles. A YouTube channel. Podcast shows. Events, and blah, blah, blah…. For the dozen of you that care I shall say this: I am leaving 925 simply because new opportunities have opened themselves to me; new creative outlets are being explored; and new adventures are being planned. As of now, you ALL belong to the Empire Of The Hairy One. Viva el Wookiee! “Have a better one.” – Blade Runner. (1982)

A few films based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Work

Tell me honestly, are you surprised that I have produced another Lovecraft article? Well if you are, then you must be new here. If not, welcome to another Lovecraftian feast. H.P. Lovecraft’s: Necronomicon, original title Necronomicon, also called Necronomicon: Book of the Dead or Necronomicon: To Hell and Back. (1993) (Thank you Wikipedia). Now this is obviously the most logical place to begin with my Lovecraftian article. In this film H.P. Lovecraft (Jeffrey Combs) gains access to the mysterious Necronomicon. He delves ever deep into its haunting pages as a myriad of ghastly stories play out before his eyes. If you adore Lovecraft then this is a film worthy of your collection. It simply oozes horror. Re-Animator (1985) This is […]

Doctor She?

“How could they [BBC] let us down like this? How could they fail us so? How could they destroy our hearts and souls? How could they destroy the best TV show ever?! How could they get a filthy female to be the doctor? Well, you know, I am not going to watch it anymore! No I’m not! I’m not!” Well, I say, GOOD! Sod off! We don’t need you and your fanboy bullshit clogging up the universe. For Christ sake, we are in the 21st century you bloody goombas! We have to move with the times, and move on. I wonder if you plebs would have complained if the new doctor was black or Asian? If the doctor was in […]

A tale full of sound and fury told by a nerd signifying meaning: (Or how fanboys have hijacked my identity)

When I was growing up, when you entered the mean streets of high school you inevitably knew that you would fall prey to the categorization process. Nobody escapes. This is where kids are mentally rounded up like cattle and corralled into the various social paddocks where you would remain for the rest of your school career. There were the Jocks, powerful and mighty. Their physical attributes enabled them to kicketh many a rear end of a student whom should dare to attempt to rise above his or her station. With muscles the size of grapefruits I can stand up and say… that I would and will never be confused for a jock. Then we had the goths, who pretty much […]

Black Friday!!!! aka, Well this planet is proper fucked!!!

I enjoy shopping as much as the average man. Well, okay, that’s a lie. I enjoy shopping a little more than the average man. BUT!!!! I only like going to the mall when the shops are quiet and I have an objective to accomplish -purchasing a new pair of shoes or buying a pizza. Nice. Quiet. Stress Free. Simple as that. So you can no doubt image how I have felt over the years watching the news report the vast legions of low IQ Americans slaughtering each other for trinkets at one of their “mega malls” on Black Friday.  (Disgusted, for those that did not know.) Now this “event” has been celebrated in the USA for many years. But, it’s […]

World Goth Day

Goth is a wonderful music genre and it is a way to express oneself artistically. Often it is misunderstood, there are some that think it is a religion, some weird cult or people with a weird vampire fetish, nope…. Keith van Zyl, vocalist of the band Hexotericka, summed the Gothic music subculture up nicely: ”The subculture is marked by its emphasis on individualism, tolerance for diversity, creativity and a focus on intellectualism.” (see https://wolfshadowwispers.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/goth-is-not-religion-it-is-an-artistic-expression/ for more). And what better way to celebrate the diversity, creativity and spirit of the Goth subculture for Goths than having their own World Goth Day or as the World Goth Day site eloquently defines it: “…a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate its […]

AN INTROVERT’S GUIDE TO INDUSTRIAL MUSIC

You know,I’m sitting here in my room reflecting exactly how I became so involved in the industrial music scene when my first outing to a show was in Philadelphia this past weekend. I saw Youth Code with opening acts Void Vision and Psychic Teens and it was wonderful. But, that’s getting off subject. The topic at hand is: How did Steve get involved in the industrial scene? I’m an introvert. At least I would like to call myself that without sounding like another internet user who self-diagnoses their self. But, no, I enjoy eating out, going to the local movie store at the mall, but that’s about it. When it comes to bigger crowds, carnivals, or anything dealing with a […]

When Metal Gear Solid’s AI plays by the same rules

Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game for a lot of different reasons, but when the AI of the enemy was affected by the same conditions and rules I was during general gameplay without it being scripted or a cut-scene, that was when I realised just how incredible this title really was. You might wonder what I am on about, so let me tell you a story. Admittedly a recorded video would have worked better but I didn’t have recording software running when this happened so I decided to recollect the events in short story format. I did dramatize it slightly for affect but that just makes the read better. It all started while Snake […]
