All Tomorrows: Special Holiday Intermission

The image (Sci-Fi Christmas, via AdsOfTheWorld) above came after I utterly failed to find pictures of Samuel Delany, Tanith Lee, Joanna Russ or the late, great Octavia Butler in a festive and appropriately seasonal hat. If anyone can remedy this gaping, unforgivable hole in the historical record, please let me know. Until then, bah humbug.

All Tomorrows will be taking a special holiday intermission as I’ll be traveling for the holidays this week and I imagine many of you wonderful people will be similarly occupied. It will return, full force, on Dec. 30. We have many stunningly written worlds – weird, beautiful and hellish – in store for you lucky souls.

In the meantime, have the Star Wars Holiday Special. You’ll never want to do anything but read (far, far away from the moving images) ever again.

    I first witnessed this wonderfully awful chunk of pop culture when my too-awesome-for-words girlfriend downloaded it for me. I instantly fell in love with the Wookie cooking show. Stir, whip, stir, whip, whip, whip, stir, beat!

    You bastard. I’d hoped I’d never see that damned Wookie family ever again.

    ZOMG. This is my SO face right now:

    Suddenly the genocidal acts of the The Empire seem not only totally justifiable but absolutely necessary.

    Even in Star Wars “furries” are annoying ;P

    Esoteric: The godawful moments are beyond number…

    Jerem: Ha ha! No such luck, you poor bastard. I’ll reduce you to a gibbering monstrosity yet. ;-)

    Mer: that rules on so many levels. Between this and your BTC, I think we’ve progressed several steps towards turning Coilhouse staff and readers into the stark raving mad Lovecraftian cult we’re destined to become. Fhtagn!

    Tequila: Plus the Empire’s uniforms are snazzier! Hail!

    Strangely enough, the part that sticks with me the most out of that whole catastrophe is what, near as I can tell, is Anton LaVey’s holo-acid faerie BDSM circus around 8:40. Can’t… get… out… of… my … brain.

    @ The Sadist David Forbes for reminding us all of this holiday horror…Yeah that sequence is clearly the origin of Cirque du Soleil. I enjoy Harrison Ford’s “acting” in this since it’s just him trying to say all his lines as fast as he can to get off camera.

    Ah 70’s variety shows…so not a genre we ever need see return. Well except Hee Haw…
