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.
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.

On July 16 we were treated to a brand new Aquaman poster in anticipation for the trailer unveiling at San Diego comic con this Saturday.
The poster depicts Aquaman swimming through Atlantis with loads of underwater creatures gathering behind.
The film is set to be released December 21, 2018
It’s being reported that Overlord, the WWII film being produced by Bad Robot and Paramount is not only done filming, but is actually the next installment in the Cloverfield anthology. It seems like the Cloverfield rumor mill has gone from zero to a hundred in the matter of only a couple days. With the announcement of Cloverfield 3 aka God Particle hopefully keeping the new release day of April 20, 2018, it seems like fans are in for a Clover-filled year. Not only is the news of two new releases in the series enough to stir up some excitement, but it’s also being reported that Netflix is looking to pick up the kaiju/sci-fi anthology franchise.
There is also some ARG buzz beginning to pick up as well. This is the Reddit thread I solely rely on, and it’s updated very frequently.
Here’s my video discussing the updates:
Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries has died at the age of 46 in London. Rolling Stone has a statement from O’Riordan’s publicist stating, “Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time. Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
The cause of death has not yet been reported.
