13 September 2013

We have discussed popular online slot themes in the past and one of the most recently discussed themes was the fishing theme. Other popular themes include the Love & Romance theme, as well as the Action theme, the branded Marvel™ & DC Comic™ book heroes theme, the Egyptian theme, the Lucky Irish theme, the Horror theme and the Money & Wealth theme, but this is just scratching the surface.

When you take all of these different themes into account, the most popular by far has to be the Science Fiction theme. Ok, so this may not be your favourite them, but for many players it is. Most of today’s online slot machine developers have produced not just one science fiction themed slot, but numerous. This particular theme is also often recognised as an Alien theme, a Space theme, a Stars & Planets theme or a U.F.O theme, but to generalise, the phrase sci-fi or science fiction is probably more suitable.

Ultimate Experiences: Fly a Super Aviator SubmersibleBefore modern technology caught up with science fiction, most of us were enthralled with daydreams of things like hybrid sea-land automobiles, passenger planes that could travel into space and submarines that could cruise underwater more like airplanes. With the release of the Super Aviator, now the third fantasy is a legitimate reality.

With the Sub Adventure, said to be “the ultimate in low level flying,” passengers can ride aboard a state-of-the-art submarine designed to do one thing: glide through the water like a plane flies through the air. The Super Aviator sub is to underwater enthusiasts what HD TV is to cable television enthusiasts – a serious upgrade.

There are not many spots around the world where members of the public can take the Super Aviator for a flight, as running costs make them prohibitively expensive for most of us to get close. However, for tourists with deep enough pockets and no interest in the arduous training involved in becoming a Scuba diver, they will provide a unique glimpse of underwater life.

Icons of the 1970s - Janis IanSinger, songwriter, science fiction author and syndicated columnist Janis Ian is one of those rare combinations of imaginative talent mixed with musical prowess that only comes along once every generation. For this reason, Ian is celebrated nearly five decades after she first started performing, and her iconoclastic status in sci-fi and folk is permanent.

Born as Janis Eddy Fink on April 7, 1951 in New York City, New York, a young Janis was almost certain to become a performer of some sorts. After moving to New Jersey as a child, Janis attended the New York City High School of Music and Art. With her father a music teacher and her musical influences including Joan Baez and Odetta, Janis wrote her first song by age 12.

At only 13 years of age, Ian wrote a moving song about society’s disapproval of interracial relations at the time titled Society’s Child (Baby I’ve Been Thinking). Impressed with the song, the label released it three different times in an attempt to force it to catch on. The first two being failures, Society’s Child finally became a hit on the third release.
