Doctor Who Series 11 Teaser Rundown

Here is our first full glimpse at Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor.

This trailer is a bit strange, but that’s to be expected from a new Doctor who trailer featuring a brand new Doctor. It’s too soon for those over at Who to let us know what kind of Doctor Whittaker is going to be. So we get a trailer essentially presenting the new companions. Seems like Whittaker is taking a liking to three individuals in particular, and offers a small gift to each.

The first one is the most unclear, but it seems the man knows someone is there and realizes the change or slow down of time. He’s just enjoying what looks like a plate of baked beans when the reality before him is nearly halted. With this interesting shapes or cracks of light appearing before him. This is suggesting something very interesting indeed. Viewers of CW’s The Flash might find this effect very familiar, and ultimately seems to be hinting at The Doctor moving through time/space unencumbered by the Tardis.

Now the second individual The Doctor meets is a woman who just missed out on the last slice of pizza. So Whittaker takes it upon herself to refill the empty pizza box leaving the woman absolutely puzzled (but delighted, I’m sure.) The third is a little more poetic. Take a seemingly normal looking older gentlemen and swap his boring newspaper with a fun comic book titled “The Beano: Summer Special 1981”.

Prime day has begun!

We’re off to the races with Amazon’s annual Prime Day deals hitting consumers all across the nation. Anticipation was at an all-time high at 3 PM Eastern time, and now many people are being treated to “server down” screens and pictures of cute puppies. This reporter was hoping for a chance to purchase a Nintendo switch at a discounted rate went to my chagrin, I was met with a flurry of errors. Now while it is still early on Amazon prime day one has to wonder how worth it it actually is.

Now while there are a very good amount of deals in the bunch they are few and far between. If you’re looking for deals on movies, music, and gaming you might be mildly successful. Now the full range of deals aren’t yet available, so keep your eye out and your F5 finger at the ready. Let’s see what ambles out of the Amazon forest on this error-ridden, uncertain beginning of Prime Day.

House of Leaves Pilot Script Teases New Ways to Warp Storytelling

this_is_not_for_you_house_of_leaves

Having as high a regard and reverence as the novel, House of Leaves has, it would seem eminent that television would try and swallow it whole, regurgitating some vague semblance of the experience so many of us have, and still are going on.

Mark Z. Danielewski is having none of that.

A short month ago, first in a Facebook discussion group, then to the wider world, Danielewski revealed a pilot script for a recently defunct attempt at bringing House of Leaves to the small streaming screen. Disagreement abound, the project (for now?) has come to a halt, but the germ of the idea has been planted.

Fans and critics alike have been swept up in the unsurprisingly ambitious turn that the pilot script has taken. Much like current “peak” television, Danielewski has crafted a pilot that is beyond description. Distilling the tones contained in which is sure to go down as his Magnum Opus, MZD shows a deft hand at mediums beyond literature ad photography.

For those familiar, MZD has been hard and fast on “if you want to see the movie, read the book.”
