Happy Friday everyone! It’s time for more of the fantastical …
Going with the alien theme of this week, I just had to share this clip from a BBC2 interview with, well, I don’t know how to describe it. See for yourself:
You’ve gotta love Louis Theroux. Guns that only work in the presence of aliens? How he keeps a straight face throughout these interviews is beyond me! Go Louis. And the ending? Priceless.
Still, you could make a darn good story out of that one. Aliens attack the Earth, our only chance at survival the Great Protector with his mind-ray guns. Awesome.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m usually at least a decade behind the times, so imagine my thrill when I came across this blog post about NASA’s discovery of Keplar 22B. “Earth’s Twin”. And yeah, it’s real. I double checked. 😉 No word on the alien population, though.
Okay, this movie I’ve gotta see! Perfect Sense is a blend of science fiction and romance. I saw a trailer for it during Mission Impossible and it looked ridiculously good. Best of all? It stars the delightfully delicious …
… Ewan McGregor.
Any film is worth watching just for the sheer smexy of this Scottish actor. Can I get an Amen?
Friday Book Club:
This week I’m reading two books: Eat, Slay, Love and Secrets of the Lost Races.
Eat, Slay, Love is the third novel in Jesse Petersen’s zombie trilogy. It’s sort of romantic comedy meets zombie apocalypse. Gotta love that, right?
In the “Non-fiction” book Secrets of the Lost Races, Rene Noorbergen shares his theory about our ancient past. It wasn’t aliens that visited earth and shared their technology, it was us. Human beings. He believes that long before recorded history there existed civilizations so advanced they’d have made us look like cavemen. Civilizations destroyed by nuclear war. It’s fascinating stuff.
What are you reading this week?
Wishing you all a happy Friday. I’ll see you on the flip side!
