Terrible News, unless you’re the Skyscraper Pharaoh, in which case Great News! Despite all my advice and your own best efforts your lone wilderness hermitage has attracted unwanted attention and you now have the remnants of civilization reorganizing near or, worse, around you. I hardly need to point out what a disaster this is since […]

Good News! Thanks to hard-work, stockpiling and increasingly off putting behavior towards your fellow man – not to mention advice from me, your ever-cheerful Cassandra of the coming collapse – you now have a surplus of goods that you’d like to trade for something else. Perhaps you’ve heard rumors of ammo, various seeds to supplement […]

Good News! You’ve not only managed to survive the collapse of civilization but have actually managed to thrive in spite of it. The only problem is that now that you’ve settled into your routine of farming, collecting game from the traps set around your trusty house-fort, outdoor stew-making, horseshoe games and lawn bowling by twilight […]

Good News! Thanks to your enthusiastic embrace of your post-collapse survival kit you’ve outlived the vast majority of your neighbors. Unfortunately now that you’ve proven you’re smarter, or at least more ruthless, than your neighbors, relatives and pets you’re running out of ways to amuse yourself. Some days it’s not enough to be salting your […]

You Only Live Twice is the fifth outing for Bond and certainly his most uneven to that point. The movie opens on a United States “Jupiter” space capsule orbiting the earth only to have a menacing shape come up from behind. The front opens and the shape resolves into a rival space craft that captures […]

Back in 1958 Ian Fleming was looking to make a James Bond film and got introduced to a young writer named Kevin McClory who had recently entered a film, The Boy and the Bridge, into the Venice Film Festival. The movie ended up doing quite poorly in the box office and Fleming grew less interested […]

The third installment of James Bond’s adventures might not rise to the artistry of its predecessor From Russia with Love but in many ways it remains, if you’ll pardon the expression, the gold standard. Released less than a year after the previous film, the director and direction of the Bond films changed dramatically. Terence Young […]

Dr. No was a hit and United Artists wasted no time in greenlighting a sequel. As From Russia With Love was famously one of John F. Kennedy’s ten favorite books, per Life magazine, Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman picked the book for their next adaptation. In point of fact From Russia With Love was the […]

When Ian Fleming’s James Bond was first put on the air, Casino Royale was broadcast in 1954 with Barry Nelson as “Jimmy Bond”. The teleplay, which I confess I haven’t seen, was apparently pretty awful since it wasn’t until 1962 that the world was graced with the second first Bond adventure – Dr. No. Watching […]

Recently there’s been a recurring roiling controversy in the Member Feed in which Ricochetti have been arguing and commenting on a matter of vital national interest. I speak of the many posts about Bond, James Bond. I am alarmed and dismayed to see so many wrong opinions about this topic on Ricochet and will assiduously endeavor […]
