The (sixth) YEAR Of Hembock!

Since last time...

Harry turned 29.
I wrote this little thingy called "Harry Hembock, and #Metoo".
I re-organized the Harry page, and left a log/tour of it.

Still gotta compile that Harry/Jade-Shade book.

Still working on the notes for the next book.
I'm in the home stretch on getting started on that.
Just need to name a couple more key characters.

And, I'm done declaring what will be the final bonus feature before compiling the book.
It happens when it happens.

Disney/Fox Part 5: The home stretch is in sight!


Disney made a bigger bid than Comcast with more goodies on the platter, and Fox accepted the bid.
We're not out of the woods with Comcast yet, but it's looking more and more like a done deal for Disney.

...and yeah, the graphic sucks, but I had to mix it up somehow, and I didn't have much time to crank it out.

Anyhoo, here's an article on the finer details.

Star Wars anthology series final (?) update.

Nope, it's not any of the above, it's....


Yep, due to "Solo: A Star Wars Story", eating shit at the box-office (fuck you, rest of the world, I liked it) Lucasfilm has put all future "____A Star Wars Story", films "on hiataus".


Looks like they're going straight from Episode 9 to the Rian Johnson trilogy.

So, here's the infographic update for that....

Harry Hembock, and #Metoo.

I wrote this on Facebook, and I want it compiled in the 5th Harry volume, so I wanted to post it here, but at the time, I was working on my big 90's retrospective that ended up taking forever, and I figured "ahhh, the next Harry-versary is awhile away, I've got plenty of time!", and then stuff in RL kept coming up, and new movies would drop I'd have to go see, and it just kept getting delayed.
And then I just got done with this "Shmegalamonga-ganza!", thing, and I realized there's no time like now.
Let's get this fucking done, you lazy chicken dummy!
So, at long last, here it is...

As all the Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey shit has come out, I keep thinking of shit that's in the Harry Hembock books. It's like "oh, shit!".
I've got him dry humping women's hands at a bus stop.
I've got him pelvic thrusting his erection at people at a mall.
I've got him pimping his girlfriend.
I've got him humping the corpse of his freshly dead girlfriend killed by a super villain.
There's some fucked up shit in there, that if I wrote it now, he'd be seeing jail time.
But then...I have him in other episodes in front of firing squads, and in electric chairs with no explanation, so I guess it all hooks together.

Well...that first book has "the true life adventures of a horrid little man", on the cover.
He's not really a "good guy". He's an amoral mad scientist who delusionally THINKS he's a superhero, so he's really bad at it.
I don't know how many people picked up on that, and I think I really fucked it up when I made him a more moral character in the reboot "Nobody loves Harry Hembock".

No, he's meant to be an anti-hero on the level of Alex from "A Clockwork Orange".
I also think my art style is too "cute", that it doesn't read as dark as what was in my head. So I'm like " this hashtag-metoo age, do I gotta explain the joke?", and it's like "yeah, I think I do".

Hmm, I have him become president in one time compressed episode, so maybe I was predicting something....

Happy anniversary, Ghostbusters 2, and The Video Game.


Ahh, what the Hell, why not?
I almost didn't observe it, but next year is the 30th for GB2, and the 10th for TVG.

GB:TVG has an important role to play in the lore.
I watched the cut-scene movie after marathon-ing GB1, GB2, and GB:ATC the day after Ghostbusters Day to refresh my memory.
GB:TVG sets up P.C.O.C. (pronounced "Peacock") the Paramornal Contracts Oversight Commission, and that ends up being a big plot thread in the IDW comics.
Basically, PCOC is just Walter Peck (dickless from the first movie), and it's his way of snooping around in the GB's business on behalf of the government.

But really, its the writer's way of keeping the best GB human antagonist around.
And it all starts in GB:TVG, and that was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

So, fire up GB2, or give the cut-scene movie of GB:TVG a whirl if you haven't before.
Or, do both!

And here it all is! Right in time for the 10th anniversary!
Got my soul-searching re-assessment of the blog, a first timer guest tour, and the third overhaul all lumped together into one thing.

Now I just need to link it to FAQ, Archives, and Biography, and the thing will be done.
