I hope that True Detective is part of this deal.

Because if it is: sweet.

I assume that they’ll price it accordingly and this way I wouldn’t have to wait for the DVD set to come out*. The way TV works is funny these days, huh?

*I’m not getting cable just to get HBO, although if they offered it separately I might change my mind on that.

I gotta push back against @TwitchyTeam on this one. (NSFW)

Unlike Twitchy, I have to agree with Kid Rock (after the fold: language not safe for work): (more…)

‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Gameplay Trailer.

Here we go.

Out in October. And, of course, they know that I’ll buy it. I want it to be the next Mass Effect, but I’ll buy it.

Just ordered: ‘A Red-Tail’s Dream’ / ‘Perils of the Lady Gamer’.

Getting some purchases in:

  • A Redtail’s Dream is an e-book version of Minna Sundberg’s rather massive – and recommended, by at least one reader here – webcomic based on Finnish legend.  Ms. Sundberg is right now doing a post-apocalypse-but-not-horribly-grim-yet webcomic called Stand Still, Stay Silent, which has me utterly engrossed, so I was predisposed to buy her earlier work; the problem was that the print copy cost $90 to ship to America (she’s Swedish/Finnish).  Fifteen bucks in e-form was a heck of a lot easier to justify on my budget.
  • The Perils of the Lady Gamer/Edward Gorey’s “The Trouble With Tribbles” Flip Comic, on the other hand, is much more of a lark ($8.50 after shipping). Skin Horse‘s Shaenon Garrity put together the two “Edwardian nerd comics” for personal appearances at cons and whatnot, apparently, but some of her online readers demanded (ahem) that they be allowed to throw money at her, too.  I look forward to seeing the end product.

“Elvis Is Everywhere.”

Because you probably need this.

Elvis Is EverywhereMojo Nixon

This is the clean version that you can play for your mom, by the way.  The live version is several times as long, even funnier, and back in the day it might have even been considered to be particularly foul-mouthed.

Behold the face of true horror, my friends.

…Me, after the caricaturists at Hershey Park have had their fun.  In my pajamas and on my keyboard.

me-hershey

 

You have to understand: this is ridiculously flattering.  Admittedly, I should have asked for giraffe or elephant slippers*, and she must have assumed that I was Cult of Jobs when I checked my iPod halfway through; other than that, I got off pretty lucky, no?

…Don’t answer that.

Moe Lane

PS: Yes, I have a beard.  I look better with one, too.

*Easter Sunday, though.  Hard to argue with bunny slippers.

Hey, who’s up for powdered alcohol*?

Well, this brilliant idea is making the rounds:

Powdered alcohol. And yes, you can snort it.

Hell of a thing when your product is too freaky for Gawker. The lawsuits on this stuff are gonna be EPIC…

Moe Lane

*I am informed that there are, in fact, ways to powder ethyl alcohol.

Back from vacation.

Hershey Park, in case it wasn’t obvious from my Twitter feed. Nice vacation – the children behaved! It’s almost as if they’re growing older and more civilized, or something – but I’m glad it’s done. Regular posting returns tomorrow.

Also: Happy Easter, for those who celebrate it.

We went to the zoo!

As you can tell from my Twitter feed.

There were also caves.

And now the children are winding down. Not as fast as the parents are, but we can all take naps at the same time.

Tweet of the Day, I Clearly Partied With The Wrong Parliamentarians edition.

Disclaimer: I have never partied with parliamentarians. Unless those guys from Australia at that one Pennsic count: for all I know they were in government. I can’t say that I remember, largely because it got really, really drunk out that morning* and large portions of the next day or so are now just a genial blur. Ah, for the days of my well-spent youth.

Right. Anyway:

That’s pretty dang hardcore, that. Must be the periwigs. Or is that just the House of Lords?

Moe Lane

*The Pennsic War is one of those unique places where: a, you are not only permitted but subtly encouraged to be absolutely sh*t-faced in public at 10:15 AM on a weekday; and b, still expected to not be an utter ass about it. At least, it used to be that way: I haven’t been in a while. Standards may have slipped.
