Molly Tanzer is the Sydney J. Bounds and Wonderland Book Award-nominated author of A Pretty Mouth (Lazy Fascist, 2012), Rumbullion, and Other Liminal Libations (Egaeus, 2013), the forthcoming Vermilion (Word Horde, 2015), and a second novel that will come out in 2015 — but she can't say anything further about that yet, on pain of death. Her short fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in, among many other places, The Book of Cthulhu (I and II), Strange Aeons, and The Book of the Dead. She lives in Boulder, CO with her husband and a very bad cat. When not writing, she enjoys mixing cocktails, experimenting with Korean cooking, and (as of recently) training for triathlons. She tweets @molly_the_tanz, and blogs — infrequently — at

I remember feeling extremely indignant about the Valdez spill and crying over all the pictures of oil-soaked seals and whatever, so I think I felt it was a RAZOR SHARP SATIRE which, what? I dunno. What can I say? At that age, I also read and nodded my head over the works of Camile Paglia (the heroine from The Maxx thought she was great). I was a moron.

It's so hard to talk about this show, isn't it?? So, Dilandau isn't physically female... at least, he doesn't have breasts, right? He tears off his shirt so we all KNOW FOR SURE (classic "what ARE you??" anxiety over genderfluid characters) which I think is meant to show us that his body is altered when he is Dilandau, vs. Celena who definitely sports a rack when she wanders back to her old house. I agree that I wanted more from Celena, and I wish Escaflowne had gotten a second season, because I felt they purposefully left a lot ambiguous so they'd have something to connect the two seasons. The adventures of Celena would have been grand, because I too would have liked to know what she remembered and who she was once she became Celena completely. At least, we think she has.... Alas!

Vision of Escaflowne is a baffling, indescribable thing, and one impossible to meaningfully discuss without revealing major series spoilers. Continue reading

I've never seen a Christopher Guest film, but I should. I've heard nothing but good stuff about Best in Show! Also, I just looked him up... what? He is the Six-Fingered Man and is married to Jamie Lee Curtis? What? I... didn't think to call him "Frankensting" I'm sorry to say, because that is gold. Comic gold. I'm not that clever! When I wrote this I was still remembering all the weirdness with everyone being like "Hey CHARLES yeah CHARLES FRANKENSTEIN" and it was too weird to get out of my head. Why is he Charles Frankenstein? Why is the monster Viktor? I'm still confused.
I've never seen Spinal Tap! Maybe I should... Hey, I also had a period easily described as The Tiresome Years. Let's be friends!
It was just a crack! I wasn't seriously impugning the dude's career! Sorry Mr. Brown! I love a good 19th c novel, thanks for the rec on the James! And several have recommended Galatea 2.2, so I'll definitely be checking that out.

Jennifer Beals wakes up and is obviously mega-hot, prompting the Creature to claim her for his own. Baron Sting Frankenstein also notices Beals is hot, and becomes uncool with this. Continue reading
