Looks like the Wonder Woman flick may be all right.

The Honest Trailers people liked it, at least. Reviews in general seem invariably positive. I was sold on Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman as soon as I saw her performance in Batman v. Superman.  Perhaps… perhaps It Will Not Suck.

Please, God: don’t let it suck.

I’m bored. Somebody recommend me a video game.

And I can’t quite justify Civilization VI right now, so not that one. Besides, I don’t need a time suck of that magnitude. Just something to fiddle with when I don’t feel like playing with my Fallout 4 dollhouses.

Oh, geez: and here’s the Cthulhu Dark Kickstarter.

I’m about to start running into budget issues.  God help me if The Yellow King Kickstarter comes out in the next day or two.

HOT DAMN! The Torg Eternity Kickstarter is live.

I’ve been waiting for this one. I was starting to wonder if we’d ever see Torg Eternity.  But here it is:

Went up today, and already past $115K.  The Internet more or less poured money into it.

Item Seed: Shackleton Mold.

Blame this.

Shackleton Mold – Google Docs

Shackleton Mold

 

This is some cutting-edge stuff, to be sure.  Shackleton Mold get its name from where it was recently discovered: back in 1915 a set of photo negatives from the Ross Sea Party Antarctic expedition got enclosed in a block of ice, then left frozen for a century.  Yes, 1915.  Which is to say, several decades before the 1947 Invasion from Beyond that fundamentally altered our microbial ecosystem and made us vulnerable to the Greys‘ genetic attacks.  Sure, we fended them off, eventually — but we’ve been doing repair work ever since.  The Mold has thus been an absolute godsend: covert recovery specialists were able to get a sample of the stuff before it got contaminated, which gives us a baseline for what our DNA looked like before we all got infected.

The Bomticc Tapestry: 50 years of the Society for Creative Anachronism.

For lo: look now on the works of my people.  Well, one of my peoples.  The Bomticc Tapestry shows the first fifty years of the SCA, embroidered in a style evocative of the Bayeux Tapestry (which is, of course, not actually a true tapestry).

I don’t expect folks who aren’t in the SCA to entirely ‘get’ how cool this is for me, but: it’s pretty cool. And I pray to God that it survives, and confuses the living HELL out of scholars in the year 3045 AD. Just for the fun of it.

Item Seed: The Sausage Protocols.

I had no idea where this was going.

Sausage Protocols – Google Docs

The Sausage Protocols

 

Description: a standard cardboard accordion file, wrapped in elastic bands and bearing various stencils and imprints that place and date it to the US Army, circa 1936 or so.  Interestingly, there are no classification stickers or warnings anywhere in the file; everything was stamped as being cleared for public dissemination at some point in 2007. There isn’t even any red tape or tabs.

Tweet of the Day, I Fail To See How An Animaniacs Reboot Can End Badly edition.

Because this sort of thing ALWAYS works out in the end.

Maybe if they bring back the actors, the animators, the artists, the writers, and the entire production crew? And rewind the culture so that it’ll all make sense?  And… OK, that last bit I was about to write probably qualified as libel.

The ‘Catwoman’ Honest Trailer.

They didn’t exactly resent having to make this, I think. But I think that Honest Trailers resents that Catwoman actually exists, and cannot be retconned out of physical existence like it would have been in the art genre that technically spawned this abomination before the Lord.  And I can’t say that I blame them, either.

Although those clips of Sharon Stone suggested that they might have been able to get a decent movie out it. Somehow.  It’d probably have to involve a tragic warehouse fire, or something.
