Godzilla hit bottom in 1998 with that abysmal version starring Matthew Broderick and half the cast of The Simpsons. So I figured it could only get better but I had a hard time caring. Then I saw Bryan Cranston and gambled on this … Continue reading
Check it out at the ever so clear Guardian link. A few were rather easy due to the covers resembling their film adaptations. I figured 9 out of 10 was my best chance. Finally got everything correct.
It would’ve been pretty cool if he made it this far. He loved technology and I think all the miniaturization we have now would blow his mind.
Someone has decided to make a movie of this hilariously erroneous Jack Chick propaganda booklet about the “dangers” of D&D. What I read is the production company is doing it straight. My guess is for ironic purposes because these people aren’t … Continue reading
Composed of four different sets to get the styles. Nice to see they found some use for the lame-o Lone Ranger stuff.
Given how JJ Abrams damaged Khan’s place in Star Trek mythos with his Nü-Trek version, I decided to poke around a local Half Price Books and scored this out-of-print find in the paperbacks. Sometimes the Kindle version just doesn’t cut it for … Continue reading
Japan’s most famous Internet cat celebrates and of course he probably got a new box to climb into. Hannah probably brought a gift.
What a prosperous trip to the Lego Store!
My first Simpsons Lego acquisition!
A counter to sports bars! Just like in school, the bullying jocks have their hangouts with TVs filled with mostly boring sports (aka, MLB, soccer, golf and UFC). I spotted this place while on my way to Pinballz so when I … Continue reading
It was yesterday but I crapped out thanks to fatigue setting in while exploring the local Costco for supplies, namely generic Zyrtec. Congratulations to Linda and Brian. They’re now on part two of living in California again.
Knowing everyone’s favorite drinking, gambling and cheating robot would try to escape Mos Eisley without settling up or realizing that Fry isn’t collateral, Bender was disposed of. Now the Jawas are cannibalizing his parts because he’s 40 percent midiclorians!
Wizard of the Coast’s ears must’ve been burning after I finally got off my ass to post the overdue book review on Of Dice and Men. Through my gaming friend Flynn, I found out that WotC announced the release schedule for … Continue reading
Maybe I should’ve done it before I went to Vegas. Nah, I’m glad I did it after the mini-debauchery expedition because the results were good-to-borderline concerns, namely the sugar and cholesterol departments. With the latter, 202 is pretty sweet without fasting. The type … Continue reading
The opening minutes of last night’s victory was off to a shaky and “oh crap!” start. The defending champs drew first blood with a goal after several minutes. Then my Stars pulled together and clobbered the Griffins with SEVEN unanswered … Continue reading
Of Dice and Men is a disappointing book from numerous angles. As a long-term gamer and hobby-level historian trying to get some insight about D&D’s past, Dice does a poor job. Maybe Ewalt should’ve read Sean Howe’s book covering Marvel Comics to get … Continue reading
