‘All Star.’

I’m sorry, but I like this.

All Star, Smash Mouth

I kind of liked Mystery Men, too.

The ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ trailer.

Huh. This doesn’t look too bad.

I mean, Ralph Breaks The Internet is not gonna be high cinema, but neither was Wreck-It Ralph and I ended up liking that one anyway. I could see my kids enjoying this. They certainly watched the trailer with some glee.

First Look: Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

This might annoy me, except that FunCom’s only publishing Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.

@WashingCon dates, ticket availability announced.

September 8-9, 2018. Tickets for WashingCon go on sale March 1st; I plan to run a couple of games again this year (assuming that they agree, of course).  As I’ve noted before, this year it’s going to be GURPS Dungeon Fantasy and In Nomine, because I can run either without having to look everything up all the time.

‘Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner.’

I was going to do ‘Back in the High Life,’ but I decided that was too sad. This one is a bit lighter.

The ‘Get Out’ Honest Trai… wait. Do I have to go watch it now?

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I skipped it. Mostly because the trailers didn’t click for me, but apparently Get Out got an Oscar nomination this year and that almost never happens for horror flicks. Even horror flicks that are really social commentary — no, wait, all horror flicks are really social commentary.  Unless they’re just gore-fests, of course.

And apparently this movie mocked — heavily — precisely the demographic that gets off on being mocked — heavily — by certain other demographics. So, I don’t know. Anybody here actually see it? Should I try to track it down?

My slightly awkward Patreon solicitation.

It’s slightly awkward because — for reasons absolutely unrelated to the public relations disaster that Patreon put itself in* — the vagaries of the system have put me back down to only one dollar (and thirty eight cent**) pledge away from providing my patrons with a 3K short story every month. So if you’re interested in getting some dang good fiction and gaming material, check out my Patreon! From my point of view, there’s never been a better time, really.

Tweet of the Day, A Sailor Rejoins The USS Arizona edition.

Apparently many survivors of the USS Arizona have chosen to have their ashes interred at the site. This story about Raymond Haerry is from April, but it is Pearl Harbor Day. So I think that it’s worth putting it up here.

And may God have mercy on who ever disturbs that site with evil intent, for those who have chosen to rest there will have none to spare.

Tweet of the Night, Hey You Should Get This @HPLHS DART Free Download edition.

Seriously. You should. The HPLHS has some good artists in it and it’s free. I mean, geez, now I have to turn my phone back on to get it on there for the trip.
