Revisiting the Lost Worlds of ERB

Since the last post over a month ago, I have been reading and re-watching stuff to inspire my “Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire” project.

The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth's  Core

The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth’s Core

I consider “The Land That Time Forgot” and “At The Earth’s Core” by Edgar Rice Burroughs as the essential foundation for any sort of “Lost World” setting.

I think you can’t go wrong with ERB as inspirational materials for any sort of “adventure setting.”

Next time, Post #150, in which I hope to have something more substantial to say.

Post-Apoc Movie Week: Day 4

For the 4th and last day of my post-apoc movie binge, I will be watching:

Def-Con4 & Hell Comes to Frogtown

Def-Con4 & Hell Comes to Frogtown

I have certainly seen “Frogtown” a few times in the past, so have saved it for last.

Post-Apoc Movie Week: Day 3

Up for watching today is something I didn’t know existed until about a year ago – the 1982 remake of “She” starring Sandahl Bergman set in a post-apocalyptic world.

She (1982)

She (1982)

I managed to find an old VHS copy, but it has bad tracking issues and I don’t have the equipment to make it viewable (all I’ve got is a DVD / VHS combo unit without any sort of manual tracking adjustment).

So eventually turned to an “unofficial source.” Didn’t want to, but since never released on DVD in Region 1 had no other viable option. Would have gladly paid more for an official release if could get one.

Post-Apoc Movie Week: Day 2

Planned for Day 2 we will leave behind the “serious” works of the 1970s and move into 1980s cheese territory:

The New Barbarians (aka Warriors of the Wasteland)

The New Barbarians (aka Warriors of the Wasteland)

2019 After the Fall of New York

Today’s schedule, 3 works by Gene Roddenberry that were made as TV pilots in the mid-1970s:
