Hello from my couch oppo! I am watching Battle Beyond the Stars, on increasingly oligarchical Amazon, who through some miracle have the ideal movie precisely for me in this moment! A shitty low rent old Hollywood no-shit Roger Corman 1980 Star Wars knockoff that is so ripe with subtext.
I can’t even with this movie I am full giggity only 14 minutes in and that’s including the credits. But here is just one small piece of crazy, out of innumerable ones!
Chad, the Luke knockoff character’s ship’s computer has the voice of a sassy 58 year old lady from Brooklyn who smokes 2 packs a day. Sample line: “I’m showing my backside to those mutant sons of bitches” and oh by the way the ship is a fallopian tube.
Anyway I said a political thing about covid as the first comment on an fp article and it’s past the edit window so the Rubicon has been crossed, nice knowing you oppo, I’ll stay logged in and hopefully my notifications will chill in a week (pleasethankyou flying spaghetti monster 🍝🙏)
UPDATE 2 I GOTTA STOP UPDATING ELECTRIC BOOGALOO:
