The Simulacra

March 31, 2010

This cover is not an English cover, and makes no sense. See the link below.

An old book written by Philip K. Dick and newly finished by me The Simulacra continues Dick’s trend on taking an egg batter to my brain and firmly stirring. While there are several characters in this sprawling 230 page novel, it’s not about the characters. As in most of his stories, the subject matter is more the environment and how characters are paddle balled around until the reader is left flummoxed that it all somehow makes sense and manages to sit at the bottom of your soul for days, making you not only wonder how many drugs Dick took, but also very afraid of how close each of his books seems on the verge of happening in the real world.

Bladerunner: The Ultimate Version

October 11, 2007

bladerunner

Bladerunner is my favorite movie, not by much, but it has remained so since I first saw it at 14 years of age. I’ve been waiting in anticipation for the newest version that comes out on DVD in December. But this evening I heard from a producer that the newest version of Bladerunner is playing at a theatre near you…or at least me…or at least if you live in the Los Angeles area.

It’s playing until next Thursday, October 18th, 2007 at the Landmark Theatre in the Westside Pavillion Mall on Pico Blvd, just East of the 405.

I’m rushing to see it tomorrow, so will refrain from speaking anymore about it until after.
