Tweet of the Day, You Know Why You Can’t Play As George Lucas in LEGO: SWTFA? edition.

That’s right, they couldn’t lick that “immediately start giggling and run George Lucas straight off of the nearest chasm. Over and over and over again” bug.  Real tricky one, that. On the bright side: instant DLC, am I right?

In the Mail: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Volume 3.

I generally leave this one for my wife to read first, but I opened it at random this time. “YOU WILL RESPECT DOOM’S PERSONAL SPACE.” …Yeah, this is gonna be up to the usual standards.

Probably my favorite Floyd song.

Reminder: please check out my Patreon!

Found here, and here’s the video that they suggested that I create to try to explain it. I have since ditched the beard, by the way – which means that I look more like a hobbit than ever. :sigh: Such is my wyrd.

Book of the Week: The Nightmare Stacks

I just finished it, and I’m comfortable with naming The Nightmare Stacks my Book of the Week. It’s about elves, and vampires, and (for a British Lefty, at least) a surprising amount of military porn. I mean, it was weird. I’d have totally expected it from an American author, but from Charlie Stross? Guess that’ll teach me to assume.

And so, adieu to The Thousand Names. I read the next two books in the series, by the way. They were good! (more…)

The Sleeper RPG.

I got alerted to this by one of my readers: remember that adventure seed I was talking about yesterday (finding what appears to have been a hushed-up secret government war in the last century)?  Turns out that a British game company came up with a RPG not utterly unlike that.  It’s called Sleeper, and while it’s not quite the same thing neither is it devoid of interest. Frozen super-soldiers being woken up, cultural drift, etc etc etc. I may have to check it out at some point.

Dammit, somebody take away Zack Snyder’s black crayon.

This is getting absurd.

Hey, you want a moment of mixed screaming fear / BLINDING, ALL-CONSUMING RAGE?

Here you go: ‘Back to the Future reboot.’ Which is apparently NOT HAPPENING; it was a joke done by this webcomic.  I mention this because I just spent five minutes frantically checking the Internet making sure that this movie would not happen, because I couldn’t figure out why they hadn’t tried this [expletive deleted] already.  It turns out it’s because Bob Gale (co-writer, co-producer) and Robert Zemeckis (co-writer, director) literally said “Over our dead bodies:”

Back in June [2015], the Oscar-winning director told the UK Telegraph that in regards to rebooting the Back To The Future trilogy onscreen, “That can’t happen until both Bob (Gale) and I are dead. And then I’m sure they’ll do it, unless there’s a way our estates can stop it.”

Tweet of the Day, I Don’t Think I Was Supposed To React To This Positively edition.

I have an officially private opinion on the entire Brexit thing, but: there are worse ways to write weekly columns.

‘I am the very model of a modern Major-General.’

One of the few nice things about living so close to Dizzy City is that there are a couple of very good G&S production companies.

Sorry, got caught up in the latest Charlie Stross.

It’s pretty good so far, but it’s also what I’m doing in lieu of creative and/or… well, actually, ‘creative’ work is all that there really is left these days, huh?  Anyway, I’m enjoying The Nightmare Stacks, but I generally do enjoy Stross’s books anyway. Especially when I get them early.
