GEEK magazine, on newsstands now, included a brief, but positive, mention of the Space: 1970 blog in its "Web" section. As always, it's nice when the site gets noticed by quote real world unquote media, and while it was a very small mention, it was nicely spotlighted on the page (right above the Mego Museum, one of this Star Kid's favorite sites).
• Poll: This is the last day to vote in our current Readers' Poll. If you haven't cast your ballot yet, you'll find it over at the top of the right-hand sidebar. If you read Space: 1970 only through an RSS feed, you'll have to come to the site to vote.
Netflix News: Space: 1970 favorites Starcrash and Battle Beyond The Stars (along with a bunch of other Roger Corman-produced/distributed B-films), are now available on Netflix Instant Play in the United States.
These movies join such 70s TV staples as Jason Of Star Command, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, The Incredible Hulk, Star Blazers, Battlestar Galactica Classic & Galactica: 1980 on the company's Instant program. It's almost like being a kid again... except it's better, because now you can watch them anytime you want!
• Support Space: This site now has over 400 followers here on Blogger, and the
Facebook Fan Page recently topped 950 "Likes," although I'm not sure how many people that "Like" the Facebook page actually ever visit the site. It seems like most of them just "Like" the various pix I post over there.
also want to thank every person who has used the Amazon links on
this site to make purchases of vintage sci-fi on DVD/Blu-ray (and the
few who've made Paypal donations - if you'd like to contribute,
there's a link in the right-hand sidebar).
• Blatant Cross-Promotion: Anyone who enjoys my writing and reviews on this site should check out my DVD Late Show
site, where I have been reviewing B-movies, cult films and genre
television shows on DVD and Blu-ray disc since 2005. Among the over 700
reviews are plenty of Space: 1970-era favorites, like Battle Beyond The Stars, Damnation Alley, Starcrash, The Starlost, the Space: 1999 Blu-rays, and many more.
