February Patron Pledge Drive, 2/14/2019.

Patreon!

Should have been up an hour ago, but I was helping somebody tank a dungeon for the first time. …Which makes perfect sense, if you play MMOs; and does not, if you don’t. Anyway, goose egg, alas. But this is a process, not an event.

USA Network picks up Brave New World TV show.

It’s going to suck. Bolding mine.

As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions. The three become entwined in a fraught relationship that awakens them to the dangers of their own conditioning.”

Slightly shockingly, Aquaman 2 is finally in the works.

Slightly, because normally this would have been green-lighted the moment Warner Bros started having difficulty hearing people because of all that MONEY.

Almost two months after opening its billion dollar hit Aquaman,Warner Bros. is starting to put the pieces together for a sequel. The studio has tapped David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first movie, to begin penning a new installment, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.  James Wan, who helmed the first movie and worked with Johnson-McGoldrick on The Conjuring 2, is making a deal to return as producer, as is Peter Safran. It is unclear at this stage whether Wan would return as director.

Technique Seed: the Ea-nasir Gambit.

Ea-nasir Gambit

This temporal trick is the Time Patrol’s equivalent of an emergency field dressing, in the sense that it’s kept in reserve for use during a genuinely life-threatening situation.  It’s not a desperation play; the Ea-nasir Gambit works perfectly well, which is why the Time Patrol uses it. It’s just that the Gambit is not a permanent fix. It’s barely a temporary one.

The math that explains how the Ea-nasir Gambit works is complex — to the point where parts of it have applied for, and gotten, official legal status as sapient entities — but the incredibly dumbed-down explanation involves temporal inertia.  To put it obscenely simply, the universe is expected to go from Point A to Point B, and it does. Everything in between can be changed, but not permanently, or more accurately, it doesn’t matter if things ‘change’ or not. When the Big Crunch happens in the end, it’s not going to make any difference if Earth was the center of a giant stellar empire, or whether it got saved from being vaporized in 2145 AD, or whether the Union won the Civil War, or whether somebody turned left instead of right on the corner and thus discovered a really nice restaurant that she totally didn’t know was there.  It all smooths out in the end.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I get that for some people, this is a day of annoyance and/or cloying sentimentality. I understand that, in fact: I feel the same way about St. Patrick’s Day, albeit for completely different reasons. To those people, I say: my genuine sympathies, but it’ll be over in fifteen and a half hours. ‘Tis mostly harmless, otherwise.

Resetting the day. [UPDATED]

Today was… exasperating. [OK, food helped a lot. But, goodness gracious, the way that a bunch of stuff piled on! Every little thing really was a little thing, but it all accumulated so. Early bedtime for me and a fresh day tomorrow.]

Full text of my ‘Arcadia’ space-fantasy Patreon RPG is up…

Patreon!

…again, on Patreon. Locked, too. I’ve been given the unfortunately excellent advice to entice people to actually sign up in order to see it. I mean, I want people to see Arcadia. But I want people to sign up, too.

BEHOLD! Frozen II, the first movie in the Disney Cinematic Universe (DCU).

I dunno if I’m the person to call it that, but I’m staking out my claim.
