Studio Triggers latest theatrical venture is like snorting 5 lines of coke and looking into a neon lava lamp for 2 hours with the sounds of Bowie echoing in your head.

It's a superbly daft movie, as is any Trigger production, about a militia of weaponized spontaneous combustion aliens and firefighters with giant robots and firetrucks trying to stop a white supremacists neo-nazi from starting a mass exodus to another universe as the planets about to blow up.

Yeah. Thats about the plot.

And lots of skin on display. This movie is oozing Bisexual energy.

Been a bit of a sparse year for gig, but I did get to see YONAKA at Mcr Academy last week and they absolutely tore the house down. Funny how I first saw them as a lead in gig for Chemical Bros years ago but now they're doing pretty good for themselves. Chuffed!

Not much now but next year? Hatari. Rammstein. Babymetal. All in 3 months?! Gonna be a good year 2020!

I made a list on my Letterboxd a few weeks ago actually...

2010: 13 Assassins dir. Takeshi Miike
2011: Drive dir. Nicolas Wending Refin
2012: The Hunt dir. Thomas Vinterberg / Dredd dir. Pete Travis*
2015: Cosmos dir. Andrzej Zulawski / The Witch dir. Robert Eggers
2016: The Handmaiden dir. Park Chan-Wook
2017: The Shape of Water dir. Guillermo Del Toro
2018: Suspiria dir. Luca Guadagino
2019: Climax dir. Gasper Noe

Couldn't honestly decide a favorite for 2013/14. Plenty of high tier entries but nothing quiet on par with the above titles. Eh, in a decade you'll get high and low years so it all evens out IMHO.

*Obvious bias is obvious.

Okay I'm 3 epsiodes in to The Umbrella Academy and I'm pleasantly surprised - turns out that what I mistook for a crap graphic novel was actually just the storyboard for a pretty good TV show!

Though my opinion of the series will always be tainted by the fact Way was a prick to folks at Thought Bubble a few years back, i must admit to being a bit intrigued by the Netflix series success.

Doubt he'll be making any more comics anyway, what with MCR making their comeback.

Was about to say, watched a bunch of news reels from the day. Everyone was in shambles.

And don't forget that the BBC reported the controlled demolition collapse of WTC 7 about half an hour early.

Really dude? Really? This playground urban legend?

It's a truly baffling bit of deliberate misdirection by the beeb, as if they thought no one would notice.

The "PUT THE LOTION IN THE BASKET" sequence is a masterpiece in subtle acting methods, you can make out every twitch and split second change in attitude, from playful to livid to vindictive in seconds. Absolutely criminal he was never nominated for an award for Buffalo Bill.

Thoughts with ya and the Mrs, Colin, alas like yourself this year just isn't for me so at least we're sitting this one out together 'sobbing'.

Safe travels to all making this perilous journey and hope y'all have the best of cons, especially to those tabling, gonna miss propping up your tables and seeing your wares, see you at the next one.
