It’s Deja Tuesday! (I think I’ve said that before …)
by Mike Bawden
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any “Stranger” it turns out that today is National Paranormal Day. From ghosts and haunted houses to unexplainable orbs in the sky and déjà vu, Americans are encouraged to celebrate by telling ghost stories, visiting paranormal sites in their community, and watching spooky movies and documentaries.
Just remember to avoid déjà vu at all costs because that can get repetitive.

It seems like a natural on “Paranormal Day” but Imagination Connoisseur, Sean Zink’s post of the trailer for SPAWN helps us set the mood. Chime in with your thoughts …
Sean also shared the trailer to GEORGE CARLIN’S AMERICAN DREAM which will be streamed on HBO on May 20. The trailer is awesome (see below) and Carlin’s parting line: “Bullshit is the American Dream … because you have to be asleep to believe it,” is profound.
I’m in. What about you?
Red Letter Media let ‘Star Trek: Picard’ have it with phasers set to “Annihalate” … and they don’t miss. Thanks to PGS Member Daniel Coyle for sharing the post and starting the discussion on Facebook. Dan also got the conversation started on Episode 1 of ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ by posting a link to the review in Variety and this review on Radio Times.
… and just remember, avoid déjà vu at all costs, because it can get repetitive. Huh?
Imagination Connoisseur, Dave Scarpa, isn’t happy with the way ‘Moon Knight’ is playing out and found the fifth episode really hard to get through. Any thoughts? Let us know …
Was Vin Diesel’s behavior behind Justin Lin’s exit from Fast 10? Probably. Thanks to PGS Member Rick Whiting for finding and sharing the article.
Imagination Connoisseur, Russell Witheyman, shared this update from James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli that casting the next 007 is “going to take some time.” Who would you cast?
PGS Member Mitchell Hodack posted this 1979 group portrait of the original (and still the best) Kirk, Spock and McCoy from the set of ST:TMP. Thanks Mitchell!
Did you know it was National Paranormal Day today? (I think I might have said that before …)
In an apparent act of mercy … DC has reported “killed” the planned Wonder Twins movie (according to this post from Imagination Connoisseur Darren Seeley). Look, if we’re going to gall all “SUPER FRIENDS” on people, I’d rather see an expansion of this cross-over between the PowerPuff Girls and the Super Friends …
R.J. Robinson shares this post featuring the first Dr. Strange movie and asks if there’s more to it than just the trippy visuals? (The film is promoted as being “Visually Transfixing”, after all.) Weigh in with your thoughts.
Rob’s daily TikTok
… yet another snippet from this weekend’s MIDNIGHT MUSINGS (with Lael Rockwell and Rrr Mmmm) about the amazing accomplishment that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe …
That’s it for today.
