|11:08 pm - SF/32 Update|
We interrupt our regularly scheduled nervous breakdown to announce that one more film has been added to the line-up for SF/32, whose theme this year "Bots Over Boston." ROBOCOP! Yay! Everybody loves Robocop!
Also, they brought out this year's logo (the image is "I'm huge!" big.) Holy cats! This is one of the best logos they've had in years. I would buy this in many formats if I could.

Ohhh, I love how they worked the bridge into the design! Better than a cheapo skyline photoshop, that's fo sho
Too bad they're not doing Robot Wars. We could MSTie it.
ah, SF film festivals, something I really miss from the States.
what a great logo.
isn't it amazing how quickly the Zakim Bridge became a local icon? Pretty soon it will be hard to visualize the city without it.

I remember when the only giveaway detail in any caricature of the skyline was the Citgo sign. And that's fine and all but it's nice to have another that isn't so branded.
I would like to protest this bigoted and hurtful portrayal of a stereotypical "robot menace" carrying away a supine and probably unconscious woman. The assumptions here about what that robot wants are too broad and vulgar to even go into.
Get this straight: when we robots carry off a woman, there's a 93.78% chance it's because she's going along with us willingly. In addition, we usually prefer for them to ride piggyback, giggling and shouting "WHEEE!" if at all possible.
The bikini, on the other hand, is most accurate. And appreciated!
I hadn't realized just how 50s sci-fi the new bridge looked. It totally looks like some kind of Krell device, but maybe that specific association is because of Robbie being with it in the logo.
If the bridge manifested the collective thoughts of those passing over it, we'd all be pretty well and truly fucked.
