BURN THE LETTUCE!

Cast all the romaine lettuce into the cleansing flame, for the sake of your very lives!  This lettuce is befouled and becursed, with a miasma of pestilence that will seize hold of your entrails and squeeze tight.  Let no putrid leaf escape purification! None!

…Seriously, folks, gastro sucks.  Don’t take the chance; toss out the romaine lettuce. Better safe than sorry.

PS: “Burn the lettuce” sounds like an euphemism.  For what, I’m not sure.

Denvertown, California [The Day After Ragnarok].

Denvertown, California

[The Day After Ragnarok]

 

Officially, it’s the Owens Valley Resettlement Camp in California; in a heavy bit of irony, the camp existed prior to the Serpentfall as the Manzanar War Relocation Center. The Japanese-Americans who were interned there have long since been repatriated to their (suddenly-vital) farms and fishing boats, of course; in their place were put those who managed to get out of Denver and the Rocky Mountains in the Evacuation of ‘46, but who lacked immediately useful skills (like farming and fishing). The Warren government has had little luck in finding these refugees better living conditions.

Group Seed: the Strategic Emergency National Imitative – Occult Reserve.

Strategic Emergency National Imitative – Occult Reserve

 

The 1970s were, in many ways, the high-water mark for organized occultism inside the federal government. There were a lot of ideas and procedures implemented during that time period that would have never been permitted either ten years before, or ten years after; but in that time period, all sorts of weird programs flourished.  And then promptly withered away to vestigial form, to be sure.

In the (e)-Mail: the Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints E-ARC.

Can’t actually read Larry Correira’s and John Ringo’s latest yet. I mean, I can read Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints, but I got other stuff to do first.  This is kind of a stress week for me.  For that matter; I kind of bought it as retail therapy.  It’s also been kind of a stress month. Months.

Sorry; will stop whining now.  Everything’s fundamentally fine.  Honestly.

They’re making a The Division movie!

I can’t wait to see how it will suck! “Deadpool 2 and John Wick director David Leitch has been lining up the film projects! It was just announced that he would be directing the Fast and Furious spinoff film with Hobbs and Shaw. Now it has been announced that he will direct the big screen adaptation of Ubisoft’s hit video game The Division!” I mean, don’t get me wrong: ‘John Wick director’ is a pretty potent talisman against despair when it comes to movies based on video games.  But movies based on video games pretty much come out of the box awful. It’s gonna take a lot to overcome that hurdle.

PS: Entertainingly, I am thinking of playing The Division again; I have heard that the updates to the game have fixed a lot of the problems that eventually caused me to lose interest in it.  But while it held my interest I was absolutely engrossed by it.  So maybe I’ll be even more upset with this movie, when it comes out.

The last, but certainly not least, Deadpool 2 trailer.

You know, they just might pull Deadpool 2 off.

It looks like it just works. I mean, I’ll know when I actually see the movie. And I am absolutely going to go see this movie when it comes out in May.  Deadpool 2 is on my must-not-miss list.

Moe Lane

PS: There are so many Easter Eggs in this trailer, by the way.

Tweet of the Day, WHAT COOL SORCERY IS THIS edition.

Well, I’m not going to call it ‘foul’ sorcery.

It’s pretty dang neat sorcery, in fact.  But as stage magic goes this is pretty impressive. The trick must have taken some time to set up.
