Pixel Scroll 2/27/18 But A Scroll Files What It Wants To File And Pixelates The Rest

(1) SCROLLO. Four genuine Solo posters appeared in this space recently. I learned from Nerdist there have been a lot of Solo parodies, like these —

(2) WHAT, ME WORRY? In December, the Scroll linked to Washington Post writer Joel Achenbach’s query about whether robots will kill us all once AI becomes smarter than people. The Bookmark has responded with “Artificial Intelligence: Today’s Intrigue. Tomorrow’s Terminator”, which tells each AI’s Terminator Score, and how close each AI is to bringing about the end of the world.

“How might AI fit into our lives?” Our chart explains advancements in AI ranging from novelty to utility. You can click on any of the AI to learn more about how humans benefit from their existence. And, use our Terminator score (with 1 being the least threatening and 5 being the most) to help decide if you should worry about a robot uprising with each AI.

(3) LEVAR AND LANGFORD. Congratulations to David Langford, whose short story “Different Kinds of Darkness” is on Episode 19 of LeVar Burton Reads.

A group of children form a secret society around a mysterious and powerful artifact….

(4) SURPRISED BESTSTELLER. This scam involving fake books is a means of laundering money (not to gull regular readers into buying fake books as if they came from their favorite author) — “Money Laundering Via Author Impersonation on Amazon?”

Patrick Reames had no idea why Amazon.com sent him a 1099 form saying he’d made almost $24,000 selling books via Createspace, the company’s on-demand publishing arm. That is, until he searched the site for his name and discovered someone has been using it to peddle a $555 book that’s full of nothing but gibberish….

…Reames said he suspects someone has been buying the book using stolen credit and/or debit cards, and pocketing the 60 percent that Amazon gives to authors. At $555 a pop, it would only take approximately 70 sales over three months to rack up the earnings that Amazon said he made.

(5) KUGALI. One of several crowdsourced projects hoping to ride the Black Panther’s wave is “The Kugali Anthology”, featuring African and diaspora creators.

200 full colour pages.  15 incredibly talented creators, 6 amazing stories and two wonderfully designed covers. But above all: a comic book experience you won’t find anywhere else!

From multiple award-winners to the brightest up-and-coming voices, Kugali has united some of the most talented artists across the African continent and diaspora. Our creators hail from across Africa (Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Senegal, Cameroon, South Africa, Uganda) and other parts of the world (Venezuela, Brazil, Jamaica, the US and the UK)….

So far backers have pledged $2,890 of the $13,596 goal, with 28 days remaining.

(6) OTHERING. Dare Segun Falowo has a lot of interesting things to say about the villains from Black Panther.

….A lot of people are like he was right ideologically and I get where they are coming from. Still he wouldn’t have ended up being morally right because his repressed disdain for his place in the world has left him ill. He would have kept on drinking more and more of that sense of complete and utter power and it would have ruined him. He even had the purple plant destroyed because he wanted it for himself alone.

So he basically had actions that marked him out as obviously villainous but behind all these actions are factors like being abandoned as a child, being excluded by his blood. Think of it, how African Americans and certain Africans don’t get along because these Africans believe that African Americans are not African blah blah blah. It really hits a spot and the way the character is crafted, down to the jagged family ties, brings together a lot of the facets of what is seemingly wrong with the idea of the African-American both from the Western viewpoint, and from the African viewpoint. He stands in the middle. He’s othered actually. He’s an other in the story. Even though he has the accent and all, he belongs nowhere….

(7) SOCIOLOGY AT THE BOX OFFICE. According to NPR, a “Hollywood Diversity Study Finds ‘Mixed Bag’ When It Comes To Representation”.

The global box office success of Black Panther is no surprise to UCLA sociologist Darnell Hunt. His annual report on Hollywood diversity argues that movies and TV shows with diverse casts and creators pay off for the industry’s bottom line.

Hunt says Black Panther, for example, “smashed all of the Hollywood myths that you can’t have a black lead, that you can’t have a predominantly black cast and [have] the film do well. It’s an example of what can be done if the industry is true to the nature of the market. But it’s too early to tell if Black Panther will change business practices or it’s an outlier. We argue it demonstrates what’s possible beyond standard Hollywood practices.”

The fifth annual diversity report is subtitled, “Five Years of Progress and Missed Opportunities,” suggesting that America’s increasingly diverse audience prefers diverse film and television content. The study reports that people of color bought the majority of movie tickets for the five of the top 10 films in 2016, and television shows with diverse casts did well in both ratings and social media.

(8) MELNIKER OBIT. Benjamin Melniker, best known as a producer on Warner Bros.’ many Batman projects, has died at the age of 104.

Melniker was credited on every big-screen version of the DC superhero since Tim Burton’s 1989 film.

(9) COMICS SECTION.

  • John King Tarpinian found genre laughs in the Wizard of Id – I laughed too!

(10) DEEPSOUTHCON. At last weekend’s DeepSouthCon business meeting, CONtraflow (New Orleans) won its bid to host DSC in 2020.

(11) ANNIHILATION. The BBC’s Caryn James awards “Four Stars for the thrilling Annihilation.

… The further the team explores, the more we see of each character’s particular vulnerability. Cass is grieving for a dead child. Anya is a sober addict. In flashback we learn that Lena’s marriage was not as perfect as it seemed at the start. “Almost none of us commit suicide,” Ventress says about the team’s apparent suicide mission, extending it to a sweeping assessment of human nature. “Almost all of us self-destruct.”

Garland playfully borrows from classic genre films and makes those references and influences his own. There are scenes that evoke 2001, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Alien and any number of Terrence Malick films. The minimalist, electronic score by Geoff Barrow (of the group Portishead) and Ben Salisbury adds a subtle layer of mystery….

(12) YOUTUBER MIGRATES TO TUBE WITH NEW SFF COMEDY. The Daily Beast’s Karen Han asks “Is ‘Final Space’ the Next Great Animated Series?”

Even if the name Olan Rogers doesn’t ring a bell, if you’ve spent any time on the internet over the past few years, you’ve probably seen his face. His YouTube channel has close to a million subscribers, and his videos are popular to the point that they’ve been mined for reaction images and GIFs. His latest project is considerably larger in scale, though it still bears the signs, good and bad, of that more short-form medium.

Final Space, airing on TBS and executive produced by Conan O’Brien, is an animated sci-fi comedy. Like most TV shows, it falls prey to the rule of “give it a few episodes and then it’ll get good,” but it’s charmingly animated and bite-sized to boot (each episode clocks in at just over 20 minutes), so it’s worth sitting through the shaky opening episodes to get to what lies beyond.

(13) NO MORE HAPPY FEET? French scientists report that king penguin breeding grounds will become untenable due to global warming: “Scientists Predict King Penguins Face Major Threats Due To Climate Change” (Of course, you all know Happy Feet is about emperor penguins rather than king penguins, so apologies if the headline struck you as a shocking error….)

Seventy percent of the world’s king penguin population could face threats to its habitat by the end of this century, according to a new scientific model.

The researchers say the problem is that the animals’ primary source of food is moving farther away from places where the penguins can breed. They’re very likely going to have to swim farther for their dinner.

“This is really surprising to us, to find such a massive change is going to happen in such a short time frame,” says Emiliano Trucchi, a researcher in evolutionary genetics from the University of Ferrara. The team’s research, co-led by Céline Le Bohec of the Université de Strasbourg, was published Monday in Nature Climate Change.

Trucchi tells NPR that king penguins breed only on islands that are ice-free near Antarctica, and there are “just a handful” of those.

BBC also has a story.

(14) KEEP DANCING. Maxwell Smart would be proud: hands-free emergency signaling via shoe radios: “Morse code shoes send toe tapping texts at MWC 2018”.

A pair of smart shoes has been created to let industrial workers keep in touch via toe-typed coded messages.

The footwear was inspired by Morse code, but made possible by the latest communication technologies.

BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones meets the firm responsible at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

(15) TODAY’S OUTRAGE. Io9 was not exactly surprised to find an argument on the internet getting out of hand, one that seemed to have lost track of an obvious fact: “We’re Sorry to Have to Remind You, But Groot Is Dead”.

Groot is dead. Long live Baby Groot!

Die-hard Guardians of the Galaxy fans are known for having watched and rewatched the James Gunn films multiple times in search of the hard-to-find Easter eggs the filmmaker scattered throughout the movie. That’s what makes it so odd that these fans seem to have forgotten something rather important about our dear friend Groot. He’s dead.

Gunn recently got into a heated philosophical debate with Entertainment Tonight producer Ash Crossan about whether it would be better to save the life of a single porg (from Star Wars: The Last Jedi) or Groot if forced to choose in a hypothetical situation. Crossnan argued in favor of the porg and Gunn understandably went to bat for Groot, pointing out that the sentient plant had a direct hand in saving the universe.

(16) LUCIFER EPISODE RECAP. Martin Morse Wooster decided to save me from my bad wi-fi by writing a recap instead of sending a link. Thanks, Martin!

I watched Lucifer last night.  I haven’t seen the show in a while, but it now has a credit (which it didn’t used to have) acknowledging that the comic book on which it is based was created by Neil Gaiman and two other people.  This was the first time I saw that Gaiman had anything to do with this show.

The plot was about a popular YA author who wrote the Class of 3001 series, in which she fictionalized characters from her high school years.  But she put her high school antics in the future, and as one detective said, “She did have to come up with that futuristic sci-fi fantasy stuff.  That’s not easy.”  The author died because she wrote her novels on a typewriter, and there was only one copy.  The killer pummeled the author with her typewriter, and ultimately confessed that he did it because “she ended the series in the most boring way possible” and didn’t want anyone to read her ending.

Also, in the show a clueless nerd fails to impress a blind date by giving her a plant that was “the traditional Mexican cure for constipation.”

  1. //Also, in the show a clueless nerd fails to impress a blind date by giving her a plant that was “the traditional Mexican cure for constipation.”///

    Well we’ve all done that surely

  2. I definitely have the insanely broad trivia knowledge required for such a random gift but I would never think to give a plant to someone, especially as a chronic hayfever sufferer (in the UK; for whatever reason I seem only to be allergic to a certain type of pollen in the UK that I haven’t encountered elsewhere in the world)

  3. Nicholas Whyte linked to this very interesting take on Black Panther: ‘Black Panther’ Is Not the Movie We Deserve. A key phrase:

    As the movie uplifts the African noble at the expense of the black American man, every crass principle of modern black respectability politics is upheld.

    In 2018, a world home to both the Movement for Black Lives and a president who identifies white supremacists as fine people, we are given a movie about black empowerment where the only redeemed blacks are African nobles. They safeguard virtue and goodness against the threat not of white Americans or Europeans, but a black American man, the most dangerous person in the world.

    I’m not sure I agree that the movie is bad because of this, but I also think it’s very hard to deny this reading of the movie. I certainly can’t find any way to do so.

  4. And here is someone smarter and more knowledgable than me trying to address Lebron’s critique, by Benjamin Dixon: The Most Important Moment in Black Panther No One Is Talking About:

    What makes Black Panther so revolutionary as a storyline is that Black people could, for the first time on this scale, see ourselves as the hero and the villain without the need to ignore the fact that we aren’t white.

    However, I do think Dixon’s read runs right into the limits of superhero films and the choice of making Wakanda a monarchy built on fighting prowess. I’m not saying it is wrong, but I think that the movie does very little to explore those themes.

  5. Meredith Moment:

    I have been warily tracking Simon R. Green’s newest series, since the books are labeled as “country house murder myster[ies] with a supernatural twist,” and while I generally like his work, that seems to fall somewhat shy of my wheelhouse. Factor in a huge Mt. Tsundoku, a cash flow problem, and relatively high cover prices, and this has been a “wait and see” series for me.

    Until now, as the debut volume, The Dark Side of the Road, has dropped in price to the princely sum of US$0.55. Okay, I’ll give that deal a shot…

  6. Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
    while there’s a scroll over pixel street

  7. I think Black Panther, in the shape of Wakanda, is one of the few superhero movies to tackle the problem of being Superman in a complex unjust world head-on. It doesn’t have a good answer to that question but it at least confronts it. Demanding that one of the few black-lead superhero films resolves that question satisfactorily is asking too much when no other film has come close (maybe X-Men First Class).

    A film deserves credit for making the questions palpable even if it can’t resolve them.

  8. In Glyer’s fair city,
    where the scrolls are so pretty,
    I first set my eyes on sweet Pixelly Scroll,
    As it wheeled its scroll-barrow,
    Through the bands broad and narrow,
    Crying, “Pixels and scrolls alive, alive, oh!”

  9. 1) My Eyes! My Eyes!

    6″He’s othered actually. He’s an other in the story. Even though he has the accent and all, he belongs nowhere”

    Well, I thought (minor spoilers) that Eric’s point to T’Challa about Wakanda needing to change and in a way being lost itself was a powerful theme, especially as seen in the 1st credit cookie. Not to mention just how he divides Wakanda itself when he arrives on the scene.

    Or more simply. “Killmonger had a point.”

    (This reminds me I’d like to see BP again; I think though Annhilation is going to be my weekend movie of choice)

  10. @Camestros: Very true. Black Panther is way more ambitious than Wonder Woman in the size and the complexity of the issues it sets out to tackle.

    Now, I’m not demanding or even asking that it resolves those questions (especially not when they are very real and living in the current day), but it should at least try to examine some of them well, and it’s here that I think Black Panther could do a lot better. As aesthetic afrofuturism it looks to me as a fabolous piece, and it really breaks ground in the way black people are depicted on screen, so I’m not saying it’s not a progressive film in many ways.

    @Paul Weimer: To continue with the comparison with Wonder Woman, I think it’s interesting that both of them are clearly dialectic in nature. Most other superhero films are very black and white in their morality, and that includes the ones where the villains have clear reasons to be as they are (like Magneto in the first X-Men movie).

    Diana goes from a naïve idealisation of humanity (thesis) to seeing humans as crap (antithesis) to deciding that she will see their good sides and love them (synthesis). Wakanda has its traditional isolationism (thesis), but the blinders are torn away by Eric (antithesis), and then tries engagement (synthesis). But it reinforces lots of stereotypes on the way, as Lebron pointed out, and I never felt a struggle for Wakanda’s soul like I did for Diana’s soul.

  11. (11) I really liked Annihilation. The trailers make it seem like it’s more of a horror movie, and that’s not true. (It does have a couple of Alien-like moments, but that’s not the main thrust of the film.) It’s deliberately paced and lets its scenes breathe, a bit like Blade Runner 2049; and at the climax especially, you really have to pay attention to what’s going on. The ending is, shall we say, a bit ambiguous? Anyway, it was well worth seeing to me.

  12. @Kathryn Sullivan: Yeah, I found it interesting to compare the feminism of both Black Panther and Wonder Woman. I’m not going to say that one is more feminist than the other, because they are feminist—and fails at being feminist—in different, complementary ways.

    I think BP really does a better job at presenting female characters among its supporting cast, but WW did better at showing relations between the women than BP did (the impression I got from BP’s women was that they were mainly defined in their relation to T’Challa, and not with each other). BP tried to imagine a world without patriarchy (but then had trouble being set in a monarchy defined by physical prowess), while WW avoided that issue, but did a better job at interrogating patriarchy in our world.

    My rating on both in their handling of women and feminism among action and comic book movies: above average.

    Though I think both were surpassed by Mad Max: Fury Road.

  13. Camestros, now I know you have spies. Last night, I was carefully interlining the lyrics to that song (and four others—I have maybe three dozen or so to go) so that I don’t have to keep looking up to see the lyrics and down to see the music for the selections we’re performing at the Irish jam’s St. Patrick’s Day party in a couple of weeks. (The biggest PITA has been “Come Back, Paddy Reilly,” which isn’t even an Irish song, as it was written—I expect—in Brooklyn. Two repeated lines of melody in each of the four verses. I barely got it all on one page in portrait.)

    “This is a LOCAL scroll! For LOCAL pixels!!”

  14. To Rev. Bob re the new Simon R. Green series: it’s a series I think gets much better after the first novel. Though calling them Country House Murder Mysteries is a bit stretching it as their really set within the multiverse that Green has with the line between supernaturals d call it weird sf pretty damn thin.

    I liked the premise enough to read the whole series as ebooks but wouldn’t call it as a strong a series as his Nightside series as it’s more akin to his Ghost Finders series in their shallow but fun manner.

  15. @9 raises an interesting question: how would a vampire do in a mirror maze (not to be confused with the distorting mirrors I’m guessing this strip intended)?

    @Bonnie McDaniel (re Annihilation): how’s your stomach for horror? One of the reviews spoke of people hiding their faces from some scenes, or outright running out, and considered this reasonable due to splatter; my partner is Not Interested (Atomic Blonde was on the wrong side of their threshold), but I’m debating about seeing it when they’re traveling.

  16. @Kip W: Or as the MGC crowd put it: “this is a local scroll for local puppies, we’ll have no filers here!”

  17. Eric and I watched Black Panther yesterday, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. What we liked best was that there are no cardboard villains in it and no flawless heroes. Even Wakanda itself is a flawed utopia, with an absolute monarch chosen through violence. But no one is doing evil just because he/she wants to be mean. Everyone seems to be acting rationally, even if we disagree with their goals or methods, and no one is stupidly self-destructive. Bravo!

  18. (1) I live in terror at the thought that somewhere deep in the bowels of Disney Studios, a bleary-eyed team of writers are working on “Life Day: A Star Wars Story.”

    (13) I demand absolute precision in my penguin news.

  19. Kip and Camestros are clearly the real-live Sens8. So who are the other 6?

    There are two types of man: One has a pixel, the other scrolls.

  20. “What are we doing tonight?”
    “The same thing we do every night–try and Pixel Scroll the world!”

  21. @Chip Hitchcock: There was one scene in Annihilation that had my wife covering her face, but she has very little stomach for gore. There are a couple of things that are fairly visually horrific, but they’re not dwelt on.
    Overall I was somewhat disappointed with the movie; Garland doesn’t seem to have been willing to trust the audience to engage with Area X on its own terms, and replaced mystery with banality. I’d still rate it as worth seeing, though.

  22. Lucifer has credited Neil Gaiman from the very beginning.

    The difference is that this season, they moved his name from the closing credits to the opening credits.

    (I carefully didn’t read the rest of that episode summary, because we’re two episodes behind, thanks to the Olympics.)

    Hunt says Black Panther, for example, “smashed all of the Hollywood myths that you can’t have a black lead, that you can’t have a predominantly black cast and [have] the film do well.

    and

    The fifth annual diversity report is subtitled, “Five Years of Progress and Missed Opportunities,” suggesting that America’s increasingly diverse audience prefers diverse film and television content.

    One of the tiring aspects of this question is the need to hype the latest entertainment product as “breaking new ground” in some way. In the first excerpt, we see the hype. In the second, we see that actually there is a long-standing trend of expanding expectations of diversity by US audiences. Progress is a path, not a switch to be flipped.

    That path extends back well over 20 years*. It would be nice is some folks, Mr. Hunt in particular in this case, could stop pretending that the latest product is the only one “making history”.

    They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning. – Clint Eastwood

    *I’m not vouching for all of the movies on that list or for Ranker in general. It’s just an easy reference to point out that history-making movies have been coming out for decades.

  24. @Dann

    I don’t think breaking new ground and building on the work of those who came before is mutually exclusive. 🙂

    Although I think Hunt’s more pessimistic point is that we keep having films that break the traditional mould, but it never makes for a true lasting change. We see people who have done a lot of work into women’s representation, for example, like Geena Davis, talking about films they made from nearly thirty years ago now, that were going to Change Everything and instead changed nothing. Each film is still treated as an exception and the industry doesn’t really do rapid change in that way people talk about.

    I hope that Black Panther, Wonder Woman etc, we’re finally starting to see things tip over from films being treated as exceptions and risks and into more of a sure financial thing, because that’s when we’re going to see patterns form and regular releases happen. But we’ll see! We don’t have the data for that yet.

    So I’m not sure I got from Hunt’s words what you apparently did!

  25. @Meredith: “films they made from nearly thirty years ago now, that were going to Change Everything and instead changed nothing”

    I think they’ve got causality backwards. History changes changes the course of art much more than art changes the course of history.

  26. @Chip Hitchcock

    Well, there’s one scene that’s out-and-out body horror, to my mind on a par with Alien’s chest-bursting. Two other scenes are animal horror (one is of a giant alligator, although I’ve seen a YouTube video of one about the same size). If your partner can’t handle chest-bursting, they would be advised to hide their eyes during that.

    Hey, did anybody get their paper copy of Worldcon’s Progress Report 2.0 today? I had a nice little book in the mail when I got home.

  27. Little pixels, on a scrollside
    Little pixels made of ticky-boxy
    Little pixels, little pixels, little pixels all the same.
    There’s a white one, and a grey one, and blue one, and an orange one
    And they’re all made out of ticky-boxy and they all scroll just the same.

  28. John Lorentz: Thanks. The closing credits for Fox shows are in tiny type at the end which is why I missed the Gaiman reference.

  29. @Meredith

    So I’m not sure I got from Hunt’s words what you apparently did!

    Each one of us has unique experiences and perspectives. Blind spots happen.

    It would have been unremarkable had Mr. Hunt approached his commentary as BP expanding upon past success. Blade was a franchise led by a black actor that featured other minorities. IIRC, it made a couple bucks. Eddie Murphy has led a couple of nearly all black casts in productions that also…made a couple bucks. There have been other successful productions.

    BP certainly is a step forward within the MCU and it builds on progress from other “superhero” movies. But its another stone in the road, not the opening of a gate that prevented progress on the path, IMHO.

    – CLOSED FOR TAGLINE DEVELOPMENT —

  30. Meredith Moment: China Mieville’s ebook edition of Perdido Street Station is available for $1.99 at the usual suspects.

  31. I’m not unaware of Blade or Eddie Murphy, and I still think Black Panther genuinely broke new ground in representation in Hollywood Blockbusters, not just built on the success of prior efforts. Is it utterly unique in space and time? No, but then again nothing is.

    IF after Black Panther (and some of the other black-driven movies of 2016-2018, like Moonlight and Get Out), we start seeing a much bigger rash of black-centred Big Hollywood films (before and BEHIND the camera), and others possibly representing other minorities more often, THEN we’ll know its claims to break that ground are real. Right now Blade kind of got that disproven… the ground it broke grew back over mostly with standard white Hollywood fare and vampire flicks, with only a handful of small-budget follow ups outside its specific franchise.

    Like the person who claimed Black Panther as a comic character has been around forever and therefore the movie was nothing new, it’s ignoring a case of sheer scale of the blockbuster hit.

  32. Oh, hey, get two days behind on my filing, come back and discover I’ve got a title credit. Glad you liked it, Mike!

    Until now, as the debut volume, The Dark Side of the Road, has dropped in price to the princely sum of US$0.55. Okay, I’ll give that deal a shot…

    0.99 at BN.com as well. Snagged.

    ANNIHILATION was a huge disappointment for me; I’m a huge fan of the books, and it seemed that the movie shaved off all the books’ inconvenient bits to deliver something that hewed more closely to known tropes. And I think the removal of certain book elements left plot holes a mile wide that could have easily been fixed by not so completely removing those elements. (My husband kept saying, “And another thing that made no sense…” and I’d be all, “Right! Whereas in the book–” and he finally had to tell me “I have not read the books! ‘But in the book’ is a useless frame of reference for me! Stop saying ‘But in the book’!”)

    But! I was curious to know whether those who didn’t like the books found the movie an improvement, for the same reason. And I can’t help but appreciate how, regardless of its success or failure as an adaptation, the movie does help move Hollywood’s Overton window in explicitly feminist directions. (The article about khakis is funny, but also fairly apt. Women! Sciencing and militarying the shit out of things! With not a single care for the male gaze! Now if only they hadn’t warped the biologist’s character into such a tight orbit around her husband–not that this particular change surprised me. Oh, Hollywood.)

    It definitely had more hard-to-watch moments than I expected, between the monsters and the corpses and the gruesome on-screen deaths.

    It was fun hearing other audience members gasping and reacting to certain things that the books had primed me to expect, [rot13]yvxr Xnar’f znlor-qhcyvpngr fgrccvat vagb gur senzr nf Xnar znlor-bevtvany frys-vzzbyngrf[/rot13].
