Second Variety was the Phillip Dick story they made into Screamers. I always thought that Screamers was ALMOST a good movie. Oddly, they seem to have taken out many of the cooler and more cinematic things from the book. Note to self: normally you want to go the other way on that. There's now a sequel to the movie, Screamers: the Hunting.
Pleasure for the Empire notes:
Glass Stone is the answer to x.
Suite of Blue is useless.
One of Those Days is a variation on x with a pedal and the melody played in the alto range.
Walruses in Love and Old Turks aren't really worth anything.
Wide Sargasso Sea really isn't anything.
Due to the incredible weirdness of our rendering situation, this is what I've come up with as a possibility for our opening shot. I have lost all sense or objectivity on this shot. I'm sorely tempted to not even do the move.
