The ‘Stranger Things’ Honest TV Trailer.

This one has a bit of subtext. Or maybe just text. Or at least demonstrates just how fragile people seem to be feeling right now. Personally, I’ve found that decompression helps a good deal with that, but that’s just me.

New Stranger Things 2 clip.

Coming out Friday. I admittedly came late to the Stranger Things party, but I got here, and now I’m looking forward to seeing the new season. I wonder whether this season is gonna be more Spielberg than King, though. Season One was very King, not least in the way that it seemed to be channeling Firestarter sometimes.  The book, not the movie. I was not particularly wowed by the movie.

‘Stranger Things: The Story of Henry and Dale.’

Fan film, and two of the three actors were all right.  Henry, though? The guy playing Henry, I liked.

Poor bastard. But Henry did not cut and run.  Respect.

Netflix nicely cease-and-desists a Stranger Things pop-up bar.

My first reaction: “What’s a pop-up bar?” I don’t know this because I’m old (for the purposes of this discussion), have never been particularly hip, and genially loathe the nearest major metropolitan area to me*.  Anyway, Netflix found out that there was a Stranger Things-themed pop-up bar, and they managed to find a way to warn  the owners that “the Netflix lawyers will rip them into a parallel dimension and suck the life from their bodies” (if the pop-up continues, unsanctioned) without actually sounding like jackwagons:   (more…)

So, I’ve been alternating Fallout: New Vegas and Stranger Things.

Based on my experience so far: Fallout: New Vegas is a fairly awesome game, but I miss the advanced features in the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy. Also, sprinting. As for Stranger Things… I’m about halfway through the second episode and already I’m eagerly anticipating watching all those Bad Shadow Government people get slowly picked off, one by one. I gather that this is not an uncommon reaction?

The ‘Stranger Things’ trailer.

This may… not actually suck.  Interesting choice of music.  Also, good to see kids making their way in Geek Life that early.
