I don’t know how I missed this, maybe it was more “I’ll watch it later” than missed, but I’m glad that I finally caught up with it. Some of that would be reminiscing the good old times, but it was fun to hear a new take on the production as well. I still want my Woola stuffy, but I am grateful the movie exists at all. – Jeff
Zoinks ! It’s been three years ?! And I’m still all hung up on it… Oh, well, you ( or me anyways ) don’t really stop loving something you love. (more…)
In response to the recent return of John Carter rights to ERB inc it seemed appropriate to return to the that giddy first viewing – Jeff

Or – where the hell is Jeff ? Well, Jeff went to California to see John Carter and pogo around ECOF (Edgar Rice Burroughs fan con ) with his Barsoomian posse. A good time was had. After the ECOF my family and I stayed in LA and played for the rest of the week. So that’s where Jeff has been. Above you can see the wondrous swag hoisted upon us by the ECOF team as well some cool items from Disney that were handed out after the movie.
I arrived mid-day on the friday and seemed to be popular because I had pre-sold copies of my Strange Worlds books that people wanted me deliver to them. (more…)
More of it showing up in all the geek outlets counts. I do like the news getting attention.
From somebody who had just watched the movie and posted it yesterday of all days – Jeff
“When I first saw the trailer for the movie JOHN CARTER in 2011, and realized it was an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars, I was seriously jazzed–”
You can see that I have a new banner cannibalized from my own Thuvia of Mars painting. It’s an indication of my feeling that it’s time to shake things up bit. Barsoomia.org came about during the looooong road to the John Carter of Mars movie. Now that it’s happened, and so many of us are saying ‘please sir, may we have some more ?’ I feel the need to broaden my window. We still live. Dynamite has their new and approved ‘John Carter Warlord of Mars, Calots and Comics and’ – I’m losing track, it’s a really long title but I am looking forward to it. There are the comic strips through edgarriceburroughs.com and perhaps, if Disney releases the reins on the movie rights, more John Carter on screen. I’d really like that. But Barsoom isn’t the only world, and ERB isn’t the only one to write Sword and Planet stories. (more…)
