A break from reality…

I’m also listening to the audiobook of The Greatest Science Fiction Stories of the 20th Century.  I’ve missed all of these stories before but even if you are familiar with them you should consider picking this up if, for no other reason, for the reading of Terry Bisson’s ‘Bears Discover Fire‘.

You can watch the first four minutes of Iron Sky which everyone here at TwShiloh (by which I mean, just me) has been quite excited about ever since the first trailer was released these many years ago.

If you haven’t seen the BBC remake of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes (names, appropriately ‘Sherlock‘), you’re really missing a treat.  The show brings Holmes and Watson up to the 21st century (with Dr. Watson being a military doctor recently returned from Afghanistan) and updates a lot of Holmes’ quirks in some very clever ways.  Watching the series makes one realize just how disappointing the recent movie reset was which is a huge shame since it had so much raw talent involved.  Anyway, here’s the trailer.
