Badass Sci Fi Non-negotiables:

Buddy, I think you’re slime.), and righteous weapons and/or vehicles (preferably guns, guns, guns!) (I know what you’re saying, and I consider shovels, bone saws, and syringes filled with glow-stick juice righteous weapons. Overdose!)

Disclaimer 1- Zombies vs. Deadites

Return of the Living Dead- Zombies created after a leak of 2-3-4 Trioxin, an experimental (real) chemical (a component of Agent Orange)- Science Fiction

Evil Dead Cantos- Deadites unleashed through recitation of passages in the Necronomicon- Not Science Fiction

It just depends on the cause of the manifestation. Apologies to Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell.

Disclaimer 2- Star Wars and Star Trek

First of all, none of these movies are R rated. Even if they were (which would be awesome), we tend to steer away from these franchises. They get enough love. Let’s give more to the others (James Cameron included).

Apologies to George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry.

Disclaimer 3- Superhero Movies

Again, most of them aren’t R rated (Deadpool, The Punisher, etc. excluded) and they get heaps of attention.

No doubt, movies like Man of Steel and Guardians of the Galaxy are excellent science fiction movies, but there are plenty of other resources for those.

Apologies to Stan Lee and Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson.

OPPOSABLE

The reason you think about aliens is because they want you to. The more attention you give them, the more eminent the invasion. Find out what happens when someone takes the ideas they gave him and writes a book. Big mistake.

HALTERES

Halteres; a conjoined, binary terrestrial system orbiting proudly in the habitable zone of a K-type orange dwarf star. Discover the origins of the Halteres universe; the big bang that gave rise to Opposable, Spire, and Badass Sci Fi itself.

SPIRE/PHREYJA

What happens after Opposable? Only the Arca Trochia knows for certain. We're being fed information. We're documenting everything they send us. Two stories are unfolding. Soon, the truth will be revealed, and it will be too late.

BADASS SCI FI POSTS

Get the latest news and insights on everything Badass Sci Fi. If it's happening in the world of Sci Fi, we might catch on eventually and give our hackneyed take on it. Tropes and cheese will flow as fast as blood from a punctured carotid artery.

WHAT'S THIS WE? YOU GOT A TURD IN YOUR POCKET?

We is me, Kirk E. Hammond, a very naughty boy, and Dexter, my maniacal muse. He won't let me rest until I finish telling his story (as Patton). He thinks it's funny when I cry.

POSTS, IMAGES, GIFS, AND MUSIC

Witness steaming loads of spectacular gore, behold hilarious, original GIFs and memes, and hear music that'll make you want to destroy something. Some are old, some are new, some are borrowed, and some just blew.
