Out of the Blue

Well with the football season over, the sports fan in me once again turns his attention towards the coming of baseball. As usual, I will try and follow the Mets until they are eliminated from contention, ignoring the concept that this elimination actually occurred in March 2009 when Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme was exposed.

In science news today, a Russian drill penetrated a 14 million year old Antarctic lake.

In global news, the science crew there has gone chaotic and started killing each other. Rumors of a shape-shifting... thing... are floating around. It is supposedly vulnerable to fire.

Your second line was the first thing I thought of after reading the first line. That and the XFiles episode which they admit was a take off of The Thing.

I think the prequel/remake is out on dvd now (or very soon), but sadly it didn't get very good reviews.



Similar, except that it made made me think of HP Lovecraft rather than the X Files. More specifically, Charles Stross's recent books centered around the Counter-Occult Branch of the UK Government. Bureaucracy, paperclips, and mind-bending horror.

It's called The Laundry. Well worth it if you're looking for a fun read.
