There is nothing wrong with putting words on a page in an enjoyable and understandable way. There are writers who are technically much better, but you get so caught up in their artistry, that it can actually be distracting from the story. I think with a lot of sf, you want the concepts to stand on their own, and any Read more

I wanted to read it, but it’s old and out of print, and I wasn’t able to get my hands on a circulating library copy, and I wasn’t motivated enough to buy a use copy and pay an exorbitant amount for shipping. Read more

“workmanlike” Yeah, that jives with my memory. The premise alone makes me want to look it up.

I haven’t actually read it, but I came across it in the course of my work, and the basic premise intrigued me. I’ve enjoyed Hogan in the past; he’s a workmanlike author, but sometimes you don’t want pyrotechics.

Recognized the name, but not the actor, short hair and bloody android demeanour really transforms people. Read more

Cautiously optimistic, he’s still on probation for Prometheus.

I really enjoyed I Am Mother. I feel like this show will be slightly deeper than I Am Mother was, but I don’t plan to get HBO Max, so I’ll just read the reviews.

The was a Netflix movie called I Am Mother with a very similar plot. A robot raising a child in some kind of underground bunker.

Also, the overall plot seems strangely similar to a movie I’ve never seen, but definitely read the wikipedia synopsis for...I’m pretty sure I first read about it on io9...but maybe not? Read more

I guarantee you there will be people disappointed by this show because there are no actual wolves in it.

That and they were receiving behavioral treatment, which the mother waves away as a possible reason for their improvement. Like, behavioral therapy improving behavior? Nonsense! It must be the bleach!

The podcast Sawbones had a really good episode discussing the history of using bleach as medicine (spoiler alert: it’s not) and the MMS in particular. If this article grabbed your attention then I highly recommend listening to it to learn more.

Calling child abuse “controversial” is part of the problem. Sympathetic media exposure like this is part of the reason why caregiver abuse is such a problem in disablity circles.

No, there was no expansion on the enemas. Which I’m grateful for, because just that one sentence made me queasy. The thought alone is seriously disturbing. It’s something out of American Horror Story (literally, throw back to AHS season 3). How anyone could do something like that to their own flesh and blood is beyond Read more

This isn’t a “controversial treatment.” There’s no reason to hypothesize that ingesting MMS would have any effect on autism, and there’s no evidence that it does have an effect (anecdotes are not data). Read more

I remembered reading this horrifying article recently on MMS and so looked it up so I could link it. People have been hospitalized and died from this while this guy and his sons with his fake church have raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars. I can’t believe that it has taken this long for legal action to be Read more

This shit is absolutely disgusting. This is child abuse and it is disturbing that the police and CPS were not motivated enough to pursue what is best for Jeremy and Joshua.  Read more

This is heartbreaking and terrifying. Those poor children, I hope they’re taken out of the care of their awful mother. Feeding them bleach, absolutely despicable.
