Gustin will get the last laugh when Flash: Emo-Slowmo-Shitshow bombs opening weekend. »
saw it as a kid and HATED it, for what it's worth. I'm forty-two now (so 12 at the time, i'm thinking) Mebbee your friends were a little younger. Which isn't a dig... just NEVER understood the appeal. »
"She says that love might even be the fifth dimension, where the beings who made the wormhole live." »
that's the one i read, too. I don't know what the fuck to make of Mieville. I'm sure it's not him, it's me. »
i'll go you one step further: The Terminator was one of the best B movies of all time, a fantastic, Twilight Zone-ish sci-fi thriller writ large.

Let me know when there's a book that says what the hell was going on in Twin Peaks from 1990 - 1992. »
Red Apple cigarettes. Which, let's be honest, was really more of an inside joke, as he was dating / toe-sucking Mira Sorvino at the time... »
