WELL NOW I AM BACK.

Hey, I got a riddle for you! When is a three hour trip a six hour trip? When everybody else on the Eastern Seaboard decides to go home on the Tuesday after Christmas, too!

Whee!

I regret to tell you…

…that I have been ORDERED by my wife to take the dang vacation, for once. I am to relax and not foam at the mouth over deadlines, because it is CHRISTMAS and everybody else is taking the week off.  I would contest this… except, of course, I cannot.

I will still check in from time to time, over the next week or so.  When I need to RELAX and HIDE. So, probably a couple of times a day.

Finally, a cause worth pursuing: A Deadpool/Wolverine movie.

Oh, man, I would so totally watch this.  Aside from everything else, I honestly believe that the people who did Deadpool genuinely love the X-Men and Marvel and wish to do something fun with it.  Incredibly foul-mouthed fun, no doubt, but ‘Merc with the Mouth’ for a reason, folks.

…[Ryan] Reynolds wants unite the two anti-heroes in a movie together if Jackman decides he’ll don the claws again (the actor has said that this spring’s third standalone Wolverine film, Logan, will be his last). “I want Deapdool and Wolverine in a movie together,” says Reynolds. “What we’re gonna have to do is convince Hugh. If anything, I’m going to need to do what I can to get my internet friends back on board to help rally another cause down the line.”

The ‘Spectral’ trailer.

Now this makes Papa Lane smile. “Here. Vicious ghosts against Special Forces troops.” Oh, yeah, that’ll do nicely.

Although they’ll probably wuss out and come up with some ‘scientific’ explanation for it all. Not necessary, guys. They can be vicious ghosts. We won’t quibble about it.

If you have downloaded Neverwinter Nights and are now getting ‘Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library’ errors…

…follow the instructions found here.  To wit: right-click the desktop icon, go to Properties, and change compatibility to “Windows XP (Service Pack 2).”  Or maybe Service Pack 3 will work: I did it with 2 and Neverwinter Nights loaded up properly and everything.

In Nomine Revisited: Sparky.

This is easily one of the top five favorite characters that I have ever written up. He’s almost perfectly versatile.

This is apparently *not* the Death Waltz.

Presenting it as something that you could conceivably play on the piano (you cannot) is, however, still an elaborate musical joke:

And it’s a pretty good tune, at that.

‘Borombon.’

Borombon, Camilo Azuquita

…I really hope that they aren’t singing something rude about anybody I like.

So I said, “Hey! Let me pop in Max Max: Fury Road!”

Two hours later, I’m ready to smash VLC Media Player into little pieces. I get video, audio stutters.  This isn’t a “fix this for me” post, by the way: this is a “I wish to strangle a manatee in the nude” post, to quote the classics. Arrgh.
