S4 E16 - There really should be only one...

S4 E16 Outro

Hello my survivor friends and welcome back.  That was episode 16 of season 4. 

I had to pump this one out early because I’m off on a week’s vacation.  Going to out to run the Napa Valley marathon and then hang around and see if those studies about how wine positively corelates with heathy outcomes are true.

First this week, I ran a quicky poll on Facebook to ask what we should do during the break between seasons to fill the dead air.  (And here we have another example of the podcast time-travel paradox.  I write this at the end of February 2024.  So it may not make sense or apply to you.)

The prevailing sentiment was that we should read more stories into audio – like we did last season. 

So, if you are listening to this before the end of April 2024, feel free to submit a short story to be read into audio.  We will give it consideration and provide editorial feedback.  Don’t be afraid to submit, last time we coached more than one first timer through the process to some quality output. 

When we agree on a finished product, we’ll get someone to read it into audio.  There is no cost to you.  Looking forward to submissions. 

I’m going to try to write a couple short stories myself. 

Submit your stories to cyktrussell at gmail dot com.  You can also do a submission form on my website or join the Facebook group and DM me.

If I don’t answer you, keep trying, you may have ended up in the spam filter. 

These links are on the website and in the show notes. 

I have not read another book since we last talked, but I did watch some of the 1991 movie Highlander 2 last night.  This is an epically bad sequel to the beloved SciFi/Fantasy classic Highlander from 1986. 

I mean, EPICALLY bad.  So bad you want to keep watching.

The movie has good actors in it.  Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Michael Ironsides, Virginia Madsen and even John C. McGinley. 

But the script is just incomprehensible. 

But, don’t take my word for it… Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film a score of 0.5 stars (out of four), saying: "Highlander II: The Quickening is the most hilariously incomprehensible movie I've seen in many a long day—a movie almost awesome in its badness. Wherever science fiction fans gather, in decades and generations to come, this film will be remembered in hushed tones as one of the immortal low points of the genre … If there is a planet somewhere whose civilization is based on the worst movies of all time, Highlander 2: The Quickening deserves a sacred place among their most treasured artifacts."

So, in summary, I recommend you gather your intoxication of choice and que this bad boy up.  Make a night of it.  I dare you.

According to the internet they intend to do a direct remake of Highlander with Henry Cavill as Connor Macleod to start filming in 2024. 

It can’t be any worse than The Quickening.

That’s it for me, remember to get your short stories in for the summer break, contribute to the show to encourage me to keep going! 

There can be only one.

550 words for you and keep surviving!
