"Becoming Bond" (2017)
This comedic documentary (streaming exclusively on Hulu) tells the odd story of George Lazenby - an Australian used-car salesman and male model with no acting experience, who still somehow managed to bulls**t his way into taking Sean Connery's place as James Bond. After making his debut in 1969's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," however, he turned down a long-term contract to make more 007 films and disappeared.
The guy who plays Lazenby in the "re-enacted" scenes from George's life doesn't look much like him, but those bits are quite funny, as are the interviews with the now elderly George himself, because you find yourself wondering how many of his "memories" are true and how much is creative embellishment. Either way, he's an interesting fella and if he hadn't bailed on the 007 role, film history might have been very different!

YOU made your film, but that is only half the battle won. The other half, and maybe the most important part, is the promotion of the film. Is it something YOU can promote, and how do YOU promote it?

Cruise ships? -- Guided tours? -- Half marathons? -- Theme parks? -- TV/internet?

Cruise ships
Disney Cruise Line
On some selected sailings Marvel Day at Sea
The animated, including Guardians of the Galaxy, TV shows shown -- Children's activities -- Costume contests -- Marvel films shown -- Meet 'n' greets -- Shows featuring the characters -- Special merchandise -- Unique food and drink offerings.

Guided tours
Adventures by Disney
When they do a long weekend in San Francisco, one of the places they visit is Lucas Film. Thus, it is not out of the realm of possibility, when they do their tours of Southern California, they'll visit Marvel Studios, especially as Marvel Studios has moved to beautiful downtown Burbank (California) or in that area.

Half Marathons
Run Disney sponsors 9 half marathons in California, Florida, and France. One of them being the Super Heroes Half Marathon at Disneyland from November 9 to November 12.

Thor 10K
Spiderman 5K
Infinity Gauntlet Challenge
(half marathon + Thor 10K)

Health and Fitness Expo -- Kids 0-8 races -- Meet 'n' greets -- Photo opportunities -- Spectator Viewing Party (for those not there to run, but to watch and/or cheer on the runners.) -- And, of course, a lot of the adults and kids like to get dressed up in Super Hero costumes.

Theme parks
Disney's California Adventure

At the end of this month what was The Twilight Zone of Terror will get a Guardians of the Galaxy theme with over 200 props from the film.
Meet Star-Lord, Gamora, a 7' Groot. Daily dance-offs.

And the rumor has it that The Universe of Energy at EPCOT at Walt Disney World will be replaced by another attraction themed to The Guardians of the Galaxy. And that's just in the U.S.

Hong Kong Disneyland
The Iron Man attraction has become the most popular attraction, in 6 months, at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Shanghai Disneyland
Show: Marvel Academic Academy -- Shop: Marvel Mementos -- Attraction: Marvel Universe

While TV may cease to exist as we know it, till then on TV or the internet in 2017 and 2018.
Cloak and Dagger -- Defenders (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Daredevil) -- The In humans -- The New Warriors -- The Runaways (and keeping it in the family one of the stars is John Carradine's granddaughter.)

And Fox has a program on the X-Men called The Gifted, and DC , while it has a couple of animated TV programs on The Teen Titans, this is their 1st live-action version The Titans.

What's in a name?

A new addition coming?
Is it a boy?
A fan of Star Wars?
Then name it Kylo.

Kylo. The fastest rising boy's name in the U.S.
2015. 3269th most popular
2016. 901st most popular.
Up 2368 spots.

What ever one thinks of the name of Kylo, it can't be as bad Tinn Cann. The surprise is not that someone name their son Tinn Cann. The surprise is that at the time there were 2 Tinn Canns in the U.S. We'll have to see whether this year's Episode VIII boosts the name of Kylo in popularity.

How old Kylo? Kylo fine. How you? No, but while reading the above, I did find an answer to my question as to how old was Kylo in Episode VII?
If the battle of Endor was year 0, then Episode was 30 years later or year 30.
And apparently Kylo was born in year 0 or the year thereafter, so he'd be 29 or 30 in Episode VII. Which would put him close to Poe who was apparently 32 in Episode VII.

Rey, on the other hand, was born 11 years after the Battle of Endor or year 11. Which would make her 19 in Episode VII or still a teenager.

Of course, for every question I find the answer for, 2 more questions pop up. For example . . .
When did Kylo betray Luke?
And when did he begin his training with him?

One possible answer is if Kylo's treachery is what brought Rey to Jakku, who has apparently been there for a decade, then the treachery occurred when Rey was 9 or in year 20. Which would make Kylo 19 or 20 or as old as Rey is now. Which makes it possible that Kylo then began his training with Luke a year or two ere he betrayed him or when he was 17 to 19. We'll no doubt find out more when Episode VII is released later this year.

Some prefer Marvel comics.
Some prefer Dark Horse comics.
I prefer Marvel comics.
Fewer Sky walkers. Fewer Solos.
More of the other guy and gal.

Which means Mace Windu is the latest Star Wars character to get his own series of comic books--5 issues beginning the August of this year or 2017. Cassian and K2SO also get their own single, stand-alone comic book in August. And Captain Phasma also has her own series of comic books coming out this year. And I wonder if Kylo will get one, as there is an interesting story there (IMHO.)

More as it becomes available.

Finished Servants of the Wankh by Jack Vance. It gets more interesting near the end (they try to steal a spaceship,) but still lacks something. Too much time is spent moving from place to place with nothing happening, and when something does happen Vance describes it so plainly it's dull. And there wasn't an alien dinosaur.

And in the same mode as ere.

Victoria Lamb
The Queen's Secret
1st novelist
1st in a trilogy

There are worst places than the Tower.
--As it was a high end jail for the well to do.
----One had some freedom outside one's cell within the walls.
----One had servants whose wages were paid by the state.
----One could have one's pets.
----One had furniture furnished by the state.
----One had a fuel and food subsidy from the state.

Like mother . . . like daughter -- Dance 'round the issues -- Astrology from superstition to science -- All men cheat on their wives . . . all women cheat on their husbands . . . not true then . . . not true now.

About women, by women, for women.
And what do you get. You get . . .

The double standard
What is unacceptable for a man is acceptable for a woman. What is acceptable for a woman is unacceptable for a man (1st)

The double untruth
Women are good. Men are bad (2nd)

When the female character(s) are primary, the male characters(s) are secondary. And though they often add to the story, they are oft ignored (3rd)

That may not be so bad, as the writers seem to have no or little understanding of the male psyche (4th)

And they may have little or no understanding of the male psyche, because they seemingly make little or no effort to try to understand the male psyche (5th)

Of course, there are exceptions, which we'll get to next time.

Next time: exceptions to the above.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
