EneMan Humor Medicine Movies

EneMan the science fiction star

As I mentioned in January, everybody’s favorite blog mascot has seemingly undertaken a new career in show biz. In fact, he’s become a big movie star, even popping up in some fairly avant garde movies.

This month, however, he’s popping up in a most unexpected place: In one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time:


Even better, though, there’s something that my readers would most definitely appreciate. You–yes, you!–can, if you so desire, peruse the various movies that EneMan is slated to appear in through the course of 2008 and vote for your favorite at EneMan Goes to Hollywood.

Personally, I’m having a very difficult time picking between Scarfece (“Say hello to my little friend” was never scarier) and The Enemator, but you can check out all the possibilities and then vote for yourself.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
