Well, I’m not going to leave today’s posting entirely devoted to the crap below. Time to lighten things up a bit. Some links for you:
Orangutans have culture! Well, hell–Doctor Zaius could’ve told ya that. Orangs have the culture and the orange outfits, Chimps have the science and the green outfits, and Gorillas have the military and the black outfits. None of this namby-pamby Tim Burton “re-imagining” here, damn it to hell.
This is the official site for the French film Vidocq, which is a brilliant piece of bizarre psuedo-steampunk horror-adventure-mystery, and a great source of inspiration for the feel of the Apollyon Noir, as well. If you can track down a copy of the DVD (eBay is where I got mine), I highly recommend it.
I love the internet. Only here can you find such things as The Anorak’s Guide to Sapphire and Steel, a fairly comprehensive overview of one of my favorite British sci-fi series.
There. I’ve shared a bit of my geekiness, and I feel much better now.
