I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)
And I just noticed there is two images the same. -_-” Sorry about that, I’ll replace it with a different one later… -_-‘
ANNOUNCING. A new original documentary series, a BBC AMERICA and BBC Two co-production. The Real History of Science Fiction premieres Saturday, April 19, 10:00pm ET after the Season 2 premiere of orphanblack.
From Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and from Jurassic Park to Doctor Who, each program is packed with contributors behind these creations and traces the developments of Robots,Space, Invasion and Time. Narrated by Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer, actor and co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock, the series determines why science fiction is not merely a genre… for its audience it’s a portal to a multi-verse – one that is all too easy to get lost in.
Among those taking part are: William Shatner (Star Trek), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek), Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Chris Carter (The X-Files), Ronald D Moore (Battlestar Galactica), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Schlock), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), John Carpenter (Dark Star, The Thing), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust), Kim Stanley Robinson (Mars Trilogy), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise), Ursula K Le Guin (The Left Hand of Darkness), Syd Mead (Blade Runner), Kenny Baker (Star Wars),Anthony Daniels (Star Wars), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Peter Weller (Robocop), Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica) and many more.
On one level, sci-fi can deliver a ‘white knuckle-ride’ – jaw-dropping special effects, and thrills that have cinemagoers flying out of their seats. But also, it is possibly the only area of pop culture that engages with big ideas. Good science fiction engages audiences on a deeper level than mere spectacle; it becomes a place to discuss not just the universe and how it works – but what it means to be emotional, sentient human beings.
We can’t wait for this exciting documentary eye-opener to The Real History of Science Fiction.
Signal boosting this announcement as it is relevant to our interests.
I’m so so bored of predictable, tame uninspiring Oscars hosts. Who are we gonna get next year? Another turn for Ellen, Billy Crystal, Whoopi? Yawny McYawnington. Why have one host when you could have ALL OF THE MUPPETS?
Do I even gots to ‘splain to you why this is a good idea, ok?
STATLER & WALDORF SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE TAKING THE PISS OUT OF EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING GOING WRONG BACKSTAGE
And before you say that it would’t be possible The Muppets have peformed live shows before.
They’re the perfect halfway house between something ‘edgy’ like Seth McFarlane and something as beige as Billy Crystal. Nostalgic, hilarious and fun. There’s already a facebook page for it which started when Eddie Murphy quit as host in 2012 that has about 30k likes - https://www.facebook.com/MuppetOscars
Let’s make this happen folks.
im so important. im always making phone calls IM SO IMPORTANT SOMEONE PLEASE RESPECT ME OH MY GOD
You stopped watching animation when you were 6…really?
What the fuck did you do with the rest of your childhood, spend it with your head in your ass?
Whatever happens tonight, please remember that Jennifer winning doesn’t mean she’s a racist or that Lupita winning means Jennifer didn’t give an Oscar-worthy performance. Both are charming, talented women who have a big career ahead of them so don’t pit them against each other for something they have absolutely no control about. Hate the Academy all you want, but don’t hate them.
