BPAL Halloween Bat

Fall has finally arrived here in Florida. Our high temperature was only at the low 70s. Of course, whether it stays we will have to see. Fall tends to fluctuate around here. But the (temporary) chill in the air does help with getting in the mood for the Black Phoenix Halloween perfume lines. So gather around my Halloween people--November or not, it is time to explore the frightening fragrances and supernatural scents from the olfactory occultists of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman: The Collection from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab

Coraline "Not Caroline" Jones is one of the most dangerous things known to humanity: a smart kid who is bored. Unlike the young lumpenproletariat who merely engages in standard juvenile delinquency, these young masters of disaster make nitroglycerin in the bathtub, or hack into various federal agencies, or perform science experiments on their siblings. But even more than that: Coraline belongs to that elite class where their troublemaking is not restricted to this plane of existence. She travels to a world which is similar to ours but not quite. In this other world, there is her Other Mother and her Other Father--they're like Coraline's parents, but with crucial differences. Those being that her Other Parents pay attention to Coraline, cook her non-exotic food, and just basically love her to pieces. Even her neighbors are far more interesting and the whole apartment building seems alive with magic. Of course, everyone having buttons for eyes is a little off-putting. And the Other Mother seems really needy. Especially when she wants Coraline to stay and have buttons installed as well. Coraline is going to have to be very brave and very clever because the Other Mother simply does not take 'No' for an answer.

Headsup: Jarvis, Execute the "Frustrate DC" Protocol...

Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray

So, Iron Man 3 kicks off the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know there's some division among people as to what they did with this film--stuff we can't go into here for spoiler reasons--but I'm on the side of enjoying it. After rewatching #2 in prep for The Avengers, I figured the worst thing you could say about #2 is that, well, it wasn't the first film. And the first film was a pretty mind-blowing experience. I think #3 here ranks higher than that--it's not the first film, no, but it at least shows that the people running this train are aware that, unlike the comics, we can't just have Tony facing down Other Guys In Armor every time he shows up. Because that would get old as hell. I was sent a Blu-Ray disc to check out the setup, and it's a decent haul: the main event's audio and video are very solid and, for fans of the film, worth snagging on their own. The commentary with writer/director Shane Black and writer Drew Pearce takes a while to get going but when they are actually delivering info, it's good stuff. Other small bits include a gag reel, deleted scenes, and a behind the scenes featurette. Highlights include the One Shot "Agent Carter" which brings Hayley Atwell back in the role--and is pretty sweet (and might be a fifteen minute TV pilot?)--and also a breakdown of how much of the Air Force One attack was actually shot. I got the same feeling from it that I got from the semi-flip in Dark Knight...sort of not surprised to learn it was real. But all the people involved are fairly insane. Again, if you're enjoying the Marvel CU, then this is worth snagging. (Click here to buy it from Amazon.)

Something Else Now on Audible

Something Else: The Complete First Season cover art (idol)

Just a headsup: my short story collection, Something Else: The Complete First Season--previously (and still) available on the Kindle--is now also available as an unabridged audiobook, read by me. My story, "Matches," serves as the audio sample.

It's twenty-four pieces of short fiction and the entire thing clocks in at just under two hours. You can snag the audiobook for just around $6 or grab it free if you sign up for an Audible trial period. Either way, whatever form you try out the book, leave a review on Amazon for it, would you? And help to spread the word. It's greatly appreciated.

Headsup: China Beach on DVD. Yes, All of It.

China Beach cast with surfboard

I'm not sure what your relationship to the series China Beach is, but mine's pretty simple: I had never seen it before. Oh, I was aware of it. I even knew Dana Delany had gotten her career started in the show. But it began at the end of my high school days and I had already drifted away from being able to spend lots of time watching television, so I just never had the opportunity to check it out. Thus in my head it was simply "MASH, but in Vietnam and with a focus on nurses."

Cut to today and we've got the whole damn thing having hit from Time-Life on DVD (the same people who hoisted that tremendous Carol Burnett boxed set into the market recently, yes) and it's a lot easier to take in and appreciate the thing when viewed in its entirety. Most impressively, as time went on...well, time went on. Whereas MASH lasted a helluva lot longer than the war that served as its backdrop, China Beach let time pass and its characters go home. Then it followed what happened after they got there, including the role of PTSD for those that did. Hell, it even visited the Vietnam War Memorial. Pretty intense stuff. Being a MASH fan, I can say with some embarrassment that speaking on that fandom...we just got AfterMASH. So.
