For Farscape fans in Chicagoland and the Great Lakes area.

Now this would be an interesting concept for a Farscape story.  NO, not a Star Trek crossover, but a Farscape NOIR story.  Wouldn’t that be AWESOME!!  It would sure beat the usual crop of soft porn, or romance, or stupid domestic bliss stories about Aeryn and her children (awwwww ain’t she sweet). 

I think many fan fiction writers forget that every Farscape episode was about something important, and not just an excuse to watch John and Aeryn’s romance blossom, or Chiana writhe around sexily.  (Not that this stuff is bad, exactly, but there’s more to Farscape than just the eye candy to satisfy our baser instincts.)

An Invitation From a Chicago Institution

March 03rd, 2010 | Category: Chicagoland,dramatic criticism

Roger Ebert and his big thumbs up.

The Ebert Club

A mere $4.99 is all it cost annually to participate in one of the best on-going movie discussions on earth.  Sure, anyone can talk about movies, but not that many can talk INTELLIGENTLY about them.  And still fewer of those actually like their readers.

Not to worry, you can still read his stuff (including his blog) at the Sun Times for free.┬á But for a five-spot, you’ll get some exclusive things, including a special twitter feed, a special RSS feed, and first crack at Ebert Fest tickets.
