Group Seed: Those Who Serve the Laughing Madness.

Those Who Serve the Laughing Madness

Description: Remarkably civilized cult worshiping a cosmic horror whose mere sight drives men mad.

On paper, this cult should be prettily straightforwardly awful.  Those Who Serve the Laughing Madness are devotees of, well, the Laughing Madness, which is a fairly standard Elder God from another reality whose presence sends mere mortals down the spiral of madness, etc etc, and he will surely come at the End Times, yadda yadda, there is no defense against his majestic insanity, blah blah blah.  All of that previous sentence was literally taken from a fairly famous sermon done by a high priest of the cult itself, complete with various mildly obscene hand gestures at appropriate points to indicate particularly self-indulgent passages.

Tweet of the Day, Just The Tweet, Really edition.

I don’t plan to click on the story. There’s no way it’ll match the title and picture. Also: I straight-up love the fact that in Japan you can apparently get corporate sponsorships for this sort of thing. I find it warm and fuzzy, somehow.

Movie of the Week: Aquaman.

They were just GIVING Aquaman out for ten bucks at the Target. TEN BUCKS. And this was the Blu-Ray plus digital version, too! What was I supposed to do, just walk on past and go get the orange juice that I was there for? I’m not STUPID.

The conundrum: Shaft, or MiB International?

They both come out on the same day, you see. Both have their points; I want to see both, but realistically I’m not going to see both. The MiB franchise is shaky (to be polite about it); this latest Shaft offering may be a little too deferential to the modern era’s sensibilities. Or maybe not (do not click that link to the trailer at work, or in front of small children, or your mother).

Crud: I had half-talked myself into MiB International while writing this. Now I’m back on the damn fence again. Maybe I should be trying to figure out how to finesse this…

Adventure Seed: Wanderwar.

Wanderwar

Well. You can bring the orcs, ogres, goblins, hobgoblins, and even the more reasonable sorts of giants firmly into the benevolent grip of civilization.  You can even install their most prominent families firmly into the local aristocratic and other power structures. But the, ah, Vigorous Races will still have their little ways.

The Captain Marvel Honest Trailer.

It’s very insightful — which is to say, it matched my opinion of the movie. I never thought that Captain Marvel was actually bad for what it was, which was a Marvel origin story. It occurs to me that that’s the problem that most Marvel origin stories had: they’re only origin stories, instead of the ‘superhero + something else’ model that the best MCU flicks have*.
