Dave Bautista has joined the Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ movie and everything is awesome

dune dave bautista

Denis Villeneuve got a hell of a performance out of Dave Bautista in Blade Runner 2049. So, it stands to reason that the director would want to work with the motherfucker again. And, he’s going to!

blade runner 2049 anime series

Blade Runner 2049 is objectively fucking awesome. Additionally, you know what else is fucking awesome? The anime short that Cowboy Bebop‘s creator made for the flick. But, that glorious mash-up ain’t over. Not by a long shot. You see, Shinichiro Watanabe  is returning to be the creative director on a fucking Blade Runner 2049 anime series.

Denis Villeneuve still interested in directing a ‘Bond’ movie. I can’t even fucking handle the thought

denis villeneuve still interested directing bond movie

Denis Villeneuve is still interested in directing a Bond flick and my balls can’t even handle the thought. Admittedly, it can’t be Bond 25 due to his upcoming Dune adaptation. But, that doesn’t matter. Bond 26Bond 39. Just make it happen.

You see, I’ve been sweating Villeneuve for a good goddamn bit now. I mean, pretty much since Prisoners. However, man. It’s tough to difficult to describe how hard he rocked my geek prostate with Blade Runner 2049.

Monday Morning Commute: They Still Haven’t Killed Me

They Still Haven't Killed Me

They still haven’t killed me.

That’s not to say there haven’t been a few close calls. That time I pulled the job on the Federation Bank on Ganymede? Goddamn, that pig went belly-up the second I scratched the skin, but I walked out with an empty clip and sack full of cash. Needless to say, I won’t be going back to Jupiter anytime soon.

Or that time I stowed aboard the Belt Skipper in the hopes of finding my beau for a real lunar tryst of a weekend. Of course, I was discovered halfway through, and that fuck of a captain tried the `ole airlock gag on me. Thing is, that shit only works on the criminally unprepared, and I’m nothing if not one prepared criminal. Fucker punched the release and I flashed him the bird before wrapping myself in a solar sail and then leisurely drifting to a comrade’s outpost.

Oh, and then just yesterday I was having a drink at Old  McQuarrie’s — bourbon and white wine, if you care – and all of a sudden the place goes neon! Bullets and beams whizzing past my head, Old McQuarrie crying behind the bar and doing that thing he does where he says those prayers and grabs at the – whatcha call it – that’s right, the Rosary beads! They managed to kill an old pervert sitting next to me, which is a shame because even though he’d spent a half hour shamelessly trying to get into my pants, everyone in the community really loved him.

So anyways, I end up having to basically gut Old McQuarrie’s with the better part of my arsenal – and I don’t just mean bullets and blades, I’m talking about pulse charges and pheno-drones, too. But, when someone’s trying to take your life, you don’t think to yourself, “Maybe I should save something for next time,” `cause the truth is that there might not be a next time.

They still haven’t killed me.
And I’ve got the privilege of next time.
But next time? They might just kill me.


Welcome to the MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE, you salty dogs!

Y’either know the drill or y’don’t. If y’do, just keep movin’ along! If y’don’t, well here’s what’s what: first I warm you up with some half-baked bit of writing nonsense (see above). Then, I share what I’ll be thinking about or watching or listening to or doing over the next week. Finally, you hit up the comments section and share your own tentative plans?

Why do we do this here at OL? Well, because life can be brutal but solidarity can be liberating. We’re all just trying to make our days manageable — or enjoyable or maybe even, in rare instances, triumphant — and sometimes a good suggestion goes a long way.

Enough blathering, let’s freakin’ dance!

Weekend Open Bar: Informal Gluttony

weekend open bar informal gluttony

It’s the fucking weekend, baby!

Not a minute too soon, not a moment too early. Caught myself some Blade Runner 2049 last night (it’s fucking amazing), and it was worth it! But goddamn, did I ever mentally and physically pay the Iron Price for it. No sleep, very little sleep, what sleep was had was shoddily attained that.


It’s the fucking weekend, baby!

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Final Trailer: Here’s Some Plot Points If Ya Need ‘Em

I’m not watching this final trailer for Blade Runner 2049. It, according to the EchoChamber, contains some plot points perhaps used to lure in people still on the fence. Not this guy, not applicable, no way. I already bought my tickets, *and* I want to know fucking nothing going in.

Hans Zimmer joining Johann Johansson on ‘Blade Runner 2049’ score, so expect some horns dude

hans zimmer blade runner 2049 score

Hans Zimmer is helping to score Blade Runner 2049, folks. Dope! I had been sort of “eh” on Zimmer lately, feeling like he had been falling into sort of horn ass-blasting self-parody. But! After his return to form with Dunkirk (in my completely unqualified, and uneducated opinion), I’m ready for more of Zimmer’s horn blasts.
