  • Music:

i'm a ship's doctor, not a genetic scientist!

i have to admire a b-grade fantasy sci-fi horror spoof movie that has a literary epigraph.

to the looking-glass world it was alice that said
"i've a sceptre in hand, i've a crown on my head.
let the looking-glass creatures, whatever they be
come dine with the red queen, the white queen and me!"

then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
and sprinkle the table with buttons and bran:
put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea--
and welcome queen alice with thirty-times-three!

"o looking-glass creatures," quoth alice, "draw near!
'tis an honour to see me, a favour to hear:
'tis a privilege high to have dinner and tea
along with the red queen, the white queen, and me!"

then fill up the glasses with treacle and ink,
or anything else that is pleasant to drink:
mix sand with the cider, and wool with the wine--
and welcome queen alice with ninety-times-nine!

yes, before there was scary movie, there was waxwork ii: lost in time.

it also made me realize there should be a list somewhere of all the movie sequels that pick up immediately after the ending of the prior movie (or nearly so), and especially the subset of movies that were released years apart (unlike, say, kill bill i & ii).
