Tag Archives: Starship Troopers


I just started the Twitter hashtag #spaceforceselfies to troll Donald Trump’s planned “Space Force.”   Just take a shot of yourself in any sci-fi getup to parody an eager recruit. You get extra points if you work in a gag directly at the president’s expense within the photo.

This could be a lot of fun if it gains traction among the cosplayer crowd.  I’d go first, but I haven’t the slightest idea how to make a costume.

I’d love to figure out a way to make a convincing costume for the Mobile Infantry depicted in Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers.”  This … this might actually just be an elaborate excuse for me to dress up as “Starship Troopers.”



“We’re getting very big in space … both militarily and for other reasons.”

The White House today released an artist’s rendition of Donald Trump’s planned “Space Corps.”

Note — there are about a million “Starship Troopers” jokes to be made here.  But if we go there, we’ll be at it all day.



I am a Twit. Follow me.

So I have a Twitter account now: https://twitter.com/ericrnolan1

I am giving up my Tumblr account, because I am pretty sure I am the only one on there.

So “Follow me!” as Johnny Rico so bravely shouted in “Starship Troopers.”   I remain your number one source for poetry, kitten pictures, monsters, dream imagery as deus ex machina, shameless self-promotion, end-of-the-world stories, links to free e-books, and Sarah Palin jokes.

“C’mon you apes!!  You want to live forever?!!”
