While the projectionist threads up Dark Star it seems as good a time as any to take care of the latest meme. This time around Will Cubbedge from Fish In A Barrel has tagged me with one of the various book memes floating around.
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
Believe it or not, the book closest to me at this time is the Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever. Honest. I'm not lying. Weeding out the credits, the fifth full sentence on page 123 starts the review of Blade Master.
"In this sequel to "Ator the Fighting Eagle," O'Keeffe as Ator is back as the Blade Master. Ator defends his people and his family name in a battle against the "Geometric Nucleus": a primitive bomb. His quest leads him and his small band of men to the castle of knowledge. D'Amato used the pseudonym David Hills."
Sounds right up my alley. Unfortunately I can't locate a copy of Blade Master from my usual sources. Instead, in honor of this meme, I'll post a review of the first movie, Ator The Fighting Eagle, when it becomes available. Inexplicably, it has a very long wait on Netflix, which means the world could end before it ever reaches my house.
Speaking of which, since I'm usually near the end of the line for these things, I'll tag Will Smith, the last man on Earth... to not have been tagged by this particular meme.
The second closest book to me when I received this meme has the following lines starting with the fifth sentence on page 123.
"When I modeled her, I thought that she would be mine forever-but others came and admired her-others like you and your friend." The axe sliced through the air, missing Arthur and striking the brick wall. Sparks flew as the smashing contact was made."
Just what tome contains that masterpiece of prose will be revealed in a week or two.
