There’s a lot to say about PHANTOM MENACE, but at least we got this out of it.
This is a Nick Frost and Simon Pegg affair, although I think Simon’s just going to show up here and there. It’s mostly Nick, and that’s all right with me. Dude could use some front-row time.
TRUTH SEEKERS looks like fun. God knows when I’ll make time to see it, though.
I absolutely freaking told all of you. They told Zac Snyder ‘No’ when they signed him to do The Snyder Cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE, he smiled and nodded in apparent agreement, and then I said “Won’t work.” And here we now are:
THR is now reporting that additional scenes will, in fact, be shot with Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. These reshoots will take place next month.
See? Listen to Uncle Moe, for he is wise and cynical in these things. …And probably stuck with getting HBO Max now. Yay.
If you missed the Kickstarter, have already used up your code for the month (click here if you haven’t), and haven’t gotten it via signing up for Audible (click here to do that)… I have a limited number of Audible codes. Leave a comment or contact me via the… Contact Me form. First come, first served.
The link below also works, mind you.
Time to start bringing it home!Continue reading 09/23/2020 Snippet, THE THING IN MY HIP FLASK.
I had the thought in the shower — then had to refine the hell out of it. Still, I got that and the real opening to the book, which was cool. Note that TINSEL RAIN is the book that will be written in November; the next Kickstarter novel is something else entirely.Continue reading TINSEL RAIN. The next Tom Vargas novel will be titled TINSEL RAIN.
It’s the $250 Kickstarter tier session for FROZEN DREAMS: obviously, $250 buys a certain amount of actual prep work, but I’ve done this adventure before and I know how it’s going to go, generally. The trick is keeping seven people entertained at once, but that’s why we run con games, right? Sweat more now, bleed less later, and all that.
I am debating whether to put in more than one gaming session tier for the next Kickstarter, though. I don’t know whether anybody would sign up for it; but then, I didn’t expect anybody to sign up for the last one, either. Gotta think about it some more.
So that was what I was doing today.
It’s not an awful conceit, but…
…if a bunch of plucky protagonists can make it from Point A to Point B with nothing but their wits and a little kinetic energy, then the goram USAF could have pushed the damn monsters back with a whole lot of kinetic energy, in the form of a bunch of A-10 Warthogs and their Happy Mandatory Fun Time GAU-Avenger rotary cannons. I mean: how could depleted uranium rounds do any worse than arrows, in this situation?
Oh, well, they’ll probably explain it away at some point.
Poor socializing!Continue reading 09/22/2020 Snippet, THE THING IN MY HIP FLASK.
