News Post: The Fruit Of The Earth

Tycho: Brenna always asks me what I want to do for Father’s Day, and the answer is always “nothing.”  Not because I want to sit, wholly inert, in some kind of Sith meditation chamber, but because I spend most days hyperventilating deep in the gulf between my potential and my manifested actions.  So I’m gonna do the sorts of things I usually do, the only difference is I’m not going to feel bad the whole time. I don’t really pay attention to Steam Sales unless there’s something I wanted already; I...

Stephen King Has Idea For ‘Friday the 13th’ Novel Told from Jason Voorhees’ POV

Stephen King is always working on something. The prolific master of horror seems to churn out a book every few months, firing away at one tale of terror after the next, with no signs of slowing down. King is such an institution that he can probably get literally anything published at this point, even a grocery list. And while King will continue to thrive as long as he’s typing away, and publishers will continue to eat it up, he’s not above waxing hypothetically about books he’ll probably never ...

‘Da 5 Bloods’ Cast Almost Included Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, John David Washington, and Giancarlo Esposito

Da 5 Bloods, the latest Spike Lee Joint, has won considerable acclaim for its cast, particularly the performance from Delroy Lindo as a Trump-voting Vietnam vet with PTSD. But at one time, the cast of Lee’s latest movie would’ve looked very different. And while it’s safe to say that the film ended up with the right cast in the end, it’s hard not to daydream about what could’ve been – a film that would’ve featured Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington, and more. Speaking with Collider, actor G...
