(1) NUKED THE FRIDGE. Yahoo! News says there may be a good reason why Indy survived the atomic blast, in “Fan Theory Explains That Much-Maligned Indiana Jones Scene”.

Much like ‘jumping the shark’ from ‘Happy Days’, the Indiana Jones movie series has a similar phrase to encompass the moment it all went a little bit too far.

And it’s ‘nuked the fridge’.

Many ardent fans of Harrison Ford’s swashbuckling archeologist very much drew the line at the moment in ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ where Indy jumps into a conveniently situated fridge to protect himself from a nuclear blast.

Walking away unscathed, it did seem a trifle unfeasible….

(2) POWERLESS LEAD ACTRESS. The name of the show, Powerless, makes punning inevitable. “Vanessa Hudgens Is Far From ‘Powerless’ – ‘Grease’ Star Will Headline NBC’s New DC Comics Sitcom” reports ScienceFiction.com.

Vanessa Hudgens is on a roll after starring in FOX’s smash hit version of ‘Grease Live!’  She’s just landed the lead role in NBC’s upcoming DC Comics-inspired sitcom ‘Powerless’.  Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster, working for “the worst insurance company in the DC Universe” which covers victims caught in the crossfire of super hero/villain battles.  This workplace comedy has been compared to ‘The Office’ but set within the DC Universe.

(3) DECLAN FINN’S FELINE FAN. At Camestros Felapton’s blog, a hilarious faux interview “Timothy the Talking Cat Reads Honor at Stake”.

[Camestros] Noted. So what book do you have today?
[Timothy] Well, today I have with me Honor at Stake by Declan Finn. A tale of love and vampires in modern New York.

[Camestros] And why this book in particular?
[Timothy] Well I was reading twitter and there was this tweet with a graph that showed it was really doing well in the Sad Puppy 4 lists.
[Camestros] The graph from my blog?
[Timothy] Your blog? I don’t think so, this was some sort of SadPuppy4 twitter account.
[Camestros] They tweeted my graph. Do you not even read this blog?
[Timothy] Good grief, no. I mean your very name offends me.…

[Camestros] So the sexy love interest vampire – she is conflicted about this? A bit of a Romeo & Vamp-Juliet thing going on?
[Timothy] No, no. She is a good vampire and a good Catholic girl. She goes to mass and everything.
[Camestros] So crucifix don’t work on vampires then?
[Timothy] No, you see the book has this all worked out. Vampires can be good or bad and the more good you are the nicer you look and the less things like holy water and sunlight affect you. The more bad you are the more hideous you become and the more holy water hurts,
[Camestros] OK so the bad vampires are like regular vampires.
[Timothy] Yup – a bit like the ones in Buffy.
[Camestros] Let me guess – the author explains this by comparing them to the vampires in Buffy?
[Timothy] Exactly! Quality writing – explains things up front so you know what is going on.

(4) MEMORIAL CUISINE. Frequent File 770 contributor James H. Burns has found yet another way to time travel… See “Recipe For the Dead” at Brooklyn Discovery.

Perhaps this is unusual. I have no way of knowing. But when I’m missing a loved one who has passed, or wishing to commemorate someone who is no longer with us… Sometimes, I’ll cook a meal that they loved. Not that I necessarily ever cooked for the departed. But sharing a repast that they favored, having those aromas in the air as the food is cooking, seems a very real way of honoring a memory.

(5) OSHIRO STORY FOLLOWUP. Here are some items of interest related to the Mark Oshiro story.

  • K. Tempest Bradford on Robin Wayne Bailey

3) I am and remain a big fan of Ms. Rosen. I’ve only read one of her novels, but I fell in love with her personality from the two times I’ve been to ConQuesT. She is lively, articulate on her strong opinions, and she is a strong woman. No, I do not always agree with her. In fact, I often greatly disagree with her and her methods of dealing with situations. It in no way changes my respect for her. She doesn’t need me to agree with her for her to be comfortable in her skin. We can disagree, and it in no way takes away from her person. That’s the biggest reason I like the woman. So, in my opinion, she can pull her pants down whenever she wants. Her white legged exposure at ConQuesT 45 was in no way indecent, and no one was assaulted by anything more than her wit, charm, and strong opinions. And honestly, if that’s not what you’re looking for, then you probably shouldn’t go to a convention filled with writers. If the writers at a convention are going to be overtly nice and congenial, I’m not going to pay a hefty entry fee to go listen to their polite little opinions. I go to conventions because of the lively discussion of various opinions from very opinionate writers. If I leave feeling strongly about something, even if that feeling is offense, then in my opinion, the panelists have done their jobs and done them well.

4) I was not present at ConQuesT 46 and cannot speak to the events that happened there.

(6) THE LEVERAGE CONCEPT. Elizabeth Bear offers help in “We provide…Leverage”.

If I am a guest at a convention you are attending, or simply a fellow attendee, and you feel that you have been harassed, intimidated, or that your boundaries have been trampled or ignored, please feel free to ask me for support, help, intervention, or just an escort to a safer area or backup on the way to talk to convention or hotel security.

If you do not feel that you can stick up for yourself, I will help. I will be a buffer or a bulwark if necessary or requested.

Just walk up to me and ask for Leverage, and I promise that I will take you seriously and I’ll try to make things better.

(This is not an exhaustive list.)

(7) BOSKONE COMPLETE. Steve Davidson finishes his Boskone report at Amazing Stories.

Final thoughts?  There were lots of smiles walking out the door on Sunday.  The David Hartwell memorial was touching, much-needed and well-handled.  From what I was able to see, everything went very smoothly (except for perhaps a few hiccups with pre-registration that I understand are already being addressed).

(8) SLOCOMBE OBIT. Cinematographer Douglas Slocombe has died at the age of 103 reports the BBC.

Slocombe shot 80 films, from classic Ealing comedies such as The Lavender Hill Mob and Kind Hearts and Coronets, to three Indiana Jones adventures.

In 1939 he filmed some of the earliest fighting of World War Two in Poland.

Indiana Jones director Steven Spielberg said Slocombe – who won Baftas for the Great Gatsby, The Servant, and Julia – “loved the action of filmmaking”.

(9) NOW YOU KNOW. Some believe Carrie Fisher revealed the working title of Star Wars: Episode VIII when she tweeted this photo of her dog. It’s on the sweatshirt back of the director’s chair.


  • February 22, 1957 — When Scott Carey begins to shrink because of exposure to a combination of radiation and insecticide, medical science is powerless to help him in The Incredible Shrinking Man, seen for the first time on this day in 1957. Did you know: special effects technicians were able to create giant drops of water by filling up condoms and dropping them.

(12) CORREIA ISN’T LEAVING TWITTER. Well, what else do you say when somebody announces “I’ll leave the account open to post blog links back to here and book ads, but other than that I’m not going to use it for any sort of conversation,” as Larry Correia did on Monster Hunter Nation today?

Recently they created a Trust and Safety Council, to protect people from being triggered with hurtful dissenting ideas. Of course the council is made up of people like Anita Sarkesian, so you know how it is going to swing.

They’ve been unverifying conservatives, and outright banning conservative journalists. Then there were rumors of “shadow banning” where people would post, but their followers wouldn’t see it in their timelines. So it’s like you’re talking to a room that you think has 9,000 people in it, but when the lights come on you’ve been wasting time talking to an empty room.

For the record, I don’t know if that’s what happened to me or not. Some of my posts have just disappeared from my timeline entirely. Other tweets seem to show up for some followers, but not others, and it wasn’t just replies. Beats me. Either something weird was going on and I’ve violated the unwritten rules of the Ministry of Public Truth, or their technical interface is just getting worse (never attribute to malice what could just be stupidity). Either way it is enough of a pain that it was getting to be not worth the hassle.

Then today they disappeared all of my friend Adam Baldwin’s tweets. Ironically, his only visible post (out of 8,000) was a link to an article about how Twitter is banning conservatives. That was the last straw.

(13) THAT DARNED JOURNALISM THING. Actually, Adam Baldwin deleted himself.

….Baldwin, who has nearly a quarter of a million followers, deleted his entire Twitter history Monday morning, leaving only one tweet asking for the CEO of Twitter to be fired and the abolishment of the platforms new Trust and Safety Council….

“This group-think, Orwellian, so-called Safety Council is really killing the wild west of ideas that Twitter was,” Baldwin laments:

“That’s what made Twitter fun. You could run across all sorts of differing viewpoints. That is what free speech is all about. As long as you’re not threatening people with violence, have at it.”

Baldwin cites the banning of prominent conservative tweeter Robert Stacy McCain as a major reason for leaving …

(14) REASON’S INTERPRETATION. Reason.com’s “Hit & Run” blog asks “Did Twitter’s Orwellian ‘Trust and Safety’ Council Get Robert Stacy McCain Banned?”

Twitter is a private company, of course, and if it wants to outlaw strong language, it can. In fact, it’s well within its rights to have one set of rules for Robert Stacy McCain, and another set of rules for everyone else. It’s allowed to ban McCain for no reason other than its bosses don’t like him. If Twitter wants to take a side in the online culture war, it can. It can confiscate Milo Yiannopoulos’s blue checkmark. This is not about the First Amendment.

But if that’s what Twitter is doing, it’s certainly not being honest about it—and its many, many customers who value the ethos of free speech would certainly object. In constructing its Trust and Safety Council, the social media platform explicitly claimed it was trying to strike a balance between allowing free speech and prohibiting harassment and abuse. But its selections for this committee were entirely one-sided—there’s not a single uncompromising anti-censorship figure or group on the list. It looks like Twitter gave control of its harassment policy to a bunch of ideologues, and now their enemies are being excluded from the platform.

(15) BRIANNA WU DEFENDS TWITTER. Brianna Wu commented on Facebook about Correia’s Twitter statement. (File 770 received permission to quote from it; the post is set to be visible to “friends” only.)

He and other conservative figures like Adam Baldwin are claiming that Twitter is breaking down on “free speech” and capitulating to the “SJWs,” which I guess means people like me. I have spent much of the last year asking Twitter and other tech companies to improve their harassment policies. There is one problem with Mr. Correria’s claim.

There is no evidence whatsoever for it.

None, zilch, zero. It’s a fantasy. A similar lie is going around that Twitter has put Anita Sarkeesian in charge of their Trust and Safety council, which is similarly baseless. I’ve spoken with a lot of tech companies in the last year and I have never heard anyone propose shadowbanning.

The only “proof” that Twitter is shadowbanning people comes from a disreputable conservative blog, that is so disreputable it cannot even be used as sourcing on Wikipedia. That blog used anonymous sourcing, and was written by someone with a personal axe to grind against Twitter.

The truth is, companies like Twitter are finally enforcing their own TOS if you threaten someone, dox someone, or set up an account specifically created to harass someone. That has led to some people being banned, and some accounts that perpetually break Twitter harassment rules to become deverified.

The backlash against Twitter is by people that prefer these system to remain as they are – a place where the women in your life will get rape threats, where anyone can have their private information posted, and where swarms of vicious mobs are destroying people’s reputation with slander.

The last I checked, almost 100 people have spread Mr. Correria’s baseless claim – and even more with Adam Baldwin. This is an important thing to fact check, and I hope you’ll share this to set the record straight.

(16) ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNET. Bailey Lemon at Medium writes “Why This Radical Leftist is Disillusioned by Leftist Culture”.

…And yet I witness so many “activists” who claim to care about those at the bottom of society ignoring the realities of oppression, as if being offended by a person’s speech or worldview is equal to prison time or living on the streets. They talk about listening, being humble, questioning one’s preconceived notions about other people and hearing their lived experiences…and yet ignore the lived experiences of those who don’t speak or think properly in the view of university-educated social justice warriors, regardless of how much worse off they really are. That is not to say that we should accept bigotry in any form?—?far from it. But I would go as far as saying that the politically correct mafia on the left perpetuates a form of bigotry on its own because it alienates and “otherizes” those who do not share their ways of thinking and speaking about the world.

I’m tired of the cliques, the hierarchies, the policing of others, and the power imbalances that exist between people who claim to be friends and comrades. I am exhausted and saddened by the fact that any type of disagreement or difference of opinion in an activist circle will lead to a fight, which sometimes includes abandonment of certain people, deeming them “unsafe” as well as public shaming and slander.

(17) YES, THIS IS A SELECTED QUOTE: Dave Freer makes his feelings clear as the summer sun:

I couldn’t give a toss how I ‘come over’ to File 770 and its occupants, (there is no point in trying to please a miniscule market at the expense of my existing readers) but it’s a useful jumping off point:…

Is Freer simply unable to generate his own column ideas? He proves his indifference by spending most of today’s 2,500-word post teeing off about half-a-dozen imagined slights he thinks self-published writers suffered here.

(18) PROVERBIAL WISDOM. Mark Lawrence declines to reap the dividends of political blogging.

When you declare a political preference (especially at either end of the spectrum) you’re immediately plumbed into an extensive support network. It’s rather like a church. Complete strangers will shout “Amen, brother!”.

Yes, you may well alienate half the political spectrum but you’ll still have half left, and half of ‘everything’ looks pretty attractive when all you’ve got is all of nothing.

Plus, the business of blogging becomes easy. You don’t have to think up something new and original to write, you can just turn the handle on the outrage machine and content drops onto the page.

“SJWs ate my baby!”

“This group of two is insufficiently diverse, you BIGOT.”

If you don’t ‘get’ either of those headlines from opposing political extremes then I’m rather jealous of you.

Anyway, the fact is that joining a side in the culture war can seem like a no-brainer to an aspiring author who needs backup. I’m entirely sure that the motivations for many authors taking to political blogging are 100% genuine, born of deep convictions. I’m also sure that many jump on board, dial up their mild convictions to 11 and enjoy the ride, blog-traffic, retweets, prime spots on the ‘right on’ genre sites of their particular affiliation, oh my.

It’s a step I’ve never been able to take. I do have moderately strong political convictions, but they’re moderate ones, and moderation doesn’t sell, doesn’t generate traffic, doesn’t get retweeted.

(19) CASE IN POINT. io9 reports “The BBC Is Bringing Back The Twilight Zone As a Radio Drama”

Ten classic episodes of The Twilight Zone will be broadcast in the UK for the first time—but, much like the show’s trademark, there’s a twist. The episodes will be reinvented as radio plays taken from Rod Serling’s original TV scripts, thanks to BBC Radio 4 Extra.

According to the Independent, veteran actor Stacy Keach will step in to perform the late Serling’s iconic monologues; other cast members throughout the series will include Jane Seymour, Jim Caviezel, Michael York, Malcolm McDowell, and Don Johnson. Producer Carl Amari has owned the rights since 2002, which he obtained in part by promising to do the episodes justice in terms of production values and casting.

(20) TECH TUNES UP FOR TREK. The Daily News profiled cast members of the Star Trek musical parody being performed this weekend at CalTech.

It’s not unusual for the cast and crew to open up text books, work on papers and discuss theoretical physics in their downtime. It provides an opportunity to network too, with students acting beside people who work in the fields they’re studying, Wong said.

“To be able to stand on stage with all of these people and sing about ‘Star Trek’ that’s just crazy,” he said.

“Boldly Go!” started out with the cast meeting on weekends, before amping up to twice a week and nearly every day in the past month.

Marie Blatnik, who studies experimental nuclear physics and plays a fierce Klingon named Maltof, described the scheduling as hectic. She originally auditioned — in half a Starfleet uniform — for a different role, but the brothers recast a male Klingon when they saw her energy.

“It kind of feels like a cult where they lure you in with ‘it’s only 15 bucks’ then jump to ‘I want your life savings,” Blatnik joked about the time invested in the show.

(21) YOUR GAME OF THRONES NEIGHBORS. Seth Meyers has had two Late Show skits where Game of Thrones characters are featured in everyday situations:

  • Melisandre at the Meyers’ baby shower:

  • Jon Snow at a dinner party:

    They don’t trust me with corners. They say hard angles like that are too similar to sharp objects.

    As for the pun jar, I was always told to offer no quarter… 🙂

  2. Regarding clay soil, I’ve read that daikon radishes are good for addressing the problem. Partly because they’re great honking root vegetables that can grow to two or three feet long and apparently pay no nevermind to clay soil (so if you grow them and pick them, they leave holes going down into the clay which can be filled in with compost). And partly because (so I hear; I am an apartment-dweller who yearns for a garden) if you grow them and don’t pick them, but leave them to rot self-compost in place, they leave holes going down into the clay which they’ve already filled with decaying vegetable matter.

    (I’m trying to sublimate my gardening urges via terrariums on the kitchen windowsill. It’s not working very well. I wish our apartment management were less [redacted] [redacted] [redacted] and I could garden. Ahem.)

    They didn’t laugh at Columbus, they told him his math was wrong. Despite what grade school textbooks would tell you, most civilized people of the age knew perfectly well the earth was round and even had a good idea of its size. And they were right. Columbus was quite wrong about the size of the earth, he just happened to run into another continent at about the place where he thought India would be. He wasn’t right, he was dumb, lucky, and had funding. And he went to his grave not admitting he’d been wrong about India.


    It wasn’t just in his age.

    People had known since ancient Greece that the Earth was a sphere and had a surprisingly accurate estimate as to its size.

    I have a translation of one of the old books pointing out that the Earth’s shadow during lunar eclipses was round, thus proving the earth was a ball, and that the shadow of a stick in Alexandria, Egypt at noon on such and such a day was this long and one in Athens, same time, same day, was that long, and by that we can calculate the curvature of the Earth and thus its size.

    And they did. Surprisingly accurately.

    It was elegant, it was reasonable, and everyone* knew about it more than a thousand years before Columbus was born.

    Columbus was the luckiest muleheaded idiot who ever lived.

    *for a given value of “everyone”. Everyone in Eurasia and North Africa with even the slightest bit of classical education.

  4. Well, it depends on the climate. If you’ve got cool weather, daikons may work very well, but they bolt very fast for me–hot humid summers–so alas I can only grow them as a fall crop. (I have friends up in Virginia who swear by em, though–you harvest and then drop compost and a carrot seed into the hole after.)

    I still keep meaning to try it, but by fall I’m usually just lying in fetal position among the weeds…

  5. Even outside Eurasia and North Africa, anyone living on a seacoast where there was any amount of sea travel knew that the Earth was round, whether or not they had a good estimate of its size.

  6. Peace Is My Middle Name: People had known since ancient Greece that the Earth was a sphere and had a surprisingly accurate estimate as to its size.

    A lot of the early science is really amazing, given what little they had to work with.

    I’ve always been astonished that astronomers in 1769 were able to derive an incredibly accurate value for the distance from the Earth to the sun, despite their rudimentary instruments and hand-drawn documentation.

    “Correia, Baldwin, Yiannopolous, and all the rest of the perpetually outraged “conservative” corner of the internet aren’t taken seriously because they have made it a practice to play chicken little. This stompy-foot outrage by Corriea and Baldwin is no different.”

    Poor little Larry. He whines about “those people” just didn’t want hang with him at the convention.

    And then continues to act in such a manner that no one would want to hang with him.

    Larry has his own special kind of crazy but he seems to turn it into a positive. MonsterHunterNation has become wingnut central. While Larry is the best the puppies have as a writer he is still most unremarkable – (despite his self comparison to Stephen King). So giving the tin foil group a place to congregate and commensurate on the social injustice to poor white males is not a bad marketing ploy. Its a niche market for him.

    And the wingnuts get to think they are part of something bigger – even though they are tiny in numbers.

    You know people try to convince me that sads and rabids and Larry and Vox are different in kind. I remain unconvinced.

  8. @Zenu: “Poor little Larry. He whines about “those people” just didn’t want hang with him at the convention.”

    Well, he’s right in at least one case. I skipped a convention primarily because he was a GOH there and I didn’t want to encounter him for a third time. As you point out, this is due to his behavior; I liked him okay until I got to know him better and his assholishness revealed itself.

  9. Regarding clay soil, I’ve read that daikon radishes are good for addressing the problem.

    If so, they’re an unusual root veggie. Most of them prefer stuff that’s easier to grow through. But clay is okay for fruit trees and non-root-veggies. (I grew up in an area with adobe. It holds moisture really well, but it can’t be allowed to dry out or it turns into something resembling rock.)

    Yeah, all this anger and resentment on the part of people who behave like assholes about how unfair it is that other people don’t actually want to hang out with assholes sort of beggars belief.

  13. I thought it was understood that Rev. Bob is posting from non-Euclidean space where corners are hard to come by.

  14. @Jack:

    The funny thing is, I actually spend most of my time in one corner or another. My bed’s in one corner, my desk is in another, and when I watch TV, the recliner is in a corner of the living room. I usually read File 770 from either the recliner or the bed, so putting me in a corner only encourages me… 😀

  15. I’ll hang out with him for a little bit if he wants to talk gardening…

    He probably gardens using hand grenades or something.

  16. @RedWombat:

    So now I am studying soils, thanks to you.

    Mollisol sounds great and fertile, but it’s a little weird to realize it is the youngest soil type on Earth, only dating to the Eocene when all other types existed by the Carboniferous.

    Podzol is the soil so bad its name is Russian. It seems to be man-made in some regions. It’s kind of sobering.

    Even more sobering is Oxisol, the poor, infertile red soil of tropical rainforests. So much of it in Brazil, and guess what, 50 million years ago much of the interior of Australia looked like that, rainforest and all.

    Take away the rainforest (say, by slash and burn farming) and warm up the planet just a little bit, and you will get Australian-type desert, with a rock-hard layer of fossilized red ironstone soil preventing any more fertile soil from forming atop it.

  17. Huh. I had not heard that about daikon. Mayhap I’ll give them a try in the fall, let ’em self-compost, and then try something else in the spring.

    If’n the Puppies wanna stay in friendly confines where everyone thinks like them and fawns over Manly Godly Guns… I think everyone will end up happier.

    Brad used to be a really pleasant and cheerful guy till he fell into this resentment hole. It’s a shame. The devolution of Brad, Larry, and JCW shows how toxic Teddy and his brand of “thinking” is, turning formerly decent and jovial men into seething masses of snarling unhappy knee-jerk hatred.

  18. @lurkertype

    Huh. At the moment, I’m watching Chris Hayes’ show on MSNBC, and they’re discussing Donald Trump’s particular brand of narcissism that drags everyone around him down to his level.

    Now square that with the fact that Mr Beale is a fan of Trump.

    Oh, you got to go on the JoCoCruise? I’m envious.

  22. JJ: It was amazing. This was my fourth time (2, 4, 5 and 6) and they’ve all been amazing. Back in 2012 one of my sisters wanted to go, her husband couldn’t because of work, and so she asked me (and also Cassy) to go with her, all expenses paid, so she wouldn’t be alone. Cassy couldn’t, but I threw myself on that grenade, because clearly I’m the Best Sister Ever. {ever-so-sincere look}

    I guess she likes having me along, because her husband is probably going to make it next year but she’s still booked me a cabin. It’s an interior room, but I don’t care; if it has a bed, a closet, and a shower, I’m happy. It’s not like I plan to spend much time there. There’s so much to do that I tend to get 4 to 6 hours sleep a night whether I need them or not….
