"Baby Can You Dig Your Man," oh God, yes, that was pretty bad. You can just hear the godawful white soul hook in your head. The character was based off of Bruce Springsteen and I'm pretty sure King asked Springsteen to play him for the silly 1994 miniseries, which has only marginally held up better than the godawful 1990 It miniseries.
I....really do not feel like doing those last three books for another couple of years. At least. Maybe never. I already know the last book ends with him repeating the beginning of the first one. And that King himself is a character. But so far, it feels less like a fantasy epic or "Spaghetti Western Lord Of The Rings" than 3500 pages of "whatever."
Isn't the Irvine Welsh original Trainspotting book set in like 1986? I guess that'd be my primary interest in reading it for compare/contrast purposes since the movie is such a specifically *90s* landmark.
I've never quite come around to hating Prometheus, so I was willing to give this one a chance, but I just couldn't get myself to like anything about the movie at all.
Ridley still wants to do three more Alien movies. God help us. I'll *try* to avoid them if he does it somehow.
