Can we talk about Spy Kids 3 for a second because it’s just the MOST BAFFLING CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE EVER

First we open to LITTLE BABY SELENA GOMEZ

THE PRESIDENT IS GEORGE CLOONEY?

Later we see Juni’s grandpa who is KHAN??

image

who spends the whole movie chasing a butterfly

image

THE VILLAIN IS SYLVESTER STALLONE

image

WHO GETS VILLAIN ADVICE FROM THREE OTHER SYLVESTER STALLONES

image

ELIJAH WOOD SHOWS UP

ONLY TO DIE IN THE NEXT SCENE

Then we find out that the president was actually the villain the whole time which makes ZERO SENSE but leads to this glorious George Clooney Sylvester Stallone impression

image

AND THEIR UNCLE WHO IS STILL MACHETE image

One year ago today, 
Neil Gaiman Presents
 & SueMedia released the audiobook of the third book of the Riverside/
Swordspoint series, written by Delia Sherman & me, and read aloud by … me, making everyone sound as much like the voices I hear in my head as possible.

I’m joined by a cast of stellar audiobook actors including the great Simon Jones (Arthur Dent), Nick Sullivan (Newsies!) and Katherine Kellgren (Bloody Jack), soundscapes by SueMedia, and original music for the series by young composer Nathanael Tronerud.  

You can hear samples here, including Neil Gaiman as the King in the Dreams (an irony not lost on us!).

Throughout the day, I’ll be reblogging old posts about the novel.  I hope that this does not annoy you.

Happy first birthday, beloved audiobook!  I hope that there is cake.

I scored this audiobook, as well as the rest of the series! You can hear some of that music and more on my soundcloud:

Thanks, Nate!

Everyone, go listen to his music - it’s amazing all by itself.

They’re both the products of ignorance, of a wealthy society that modern medicine has insulated from nature, from reality.

One that doesn’t realize anymore that pregnancy kills. Not just…
