AS I WISH Part One

It is the 35th Anniversary of The Princess Bride and the MacFarlane toy company made these awesome action figures. Each has 22 points of articulation but sadly, they’re both right-handed so you can’t do the duel accurately. Well, maybe I could … Continue reading

Italian #57: Licia Troisi

For starters, her name is pronounced LEE-cha TRO-easy, not, what I’m predicting from lazy American English, LEE-sia TROY-see. I’m also going to be upfront, I don’t know much about Mrs. Troisi other than I was thrilled to find a person … Continue reading

The COVID Ages? More like Dungeons & Dumbasses

It’s a good thing dragons aren’t (or weren’t) real. I could imagine this happening but over the years, I’ve learned through books and documentaries that the people from the Dark through Middle Ages weren’t as stupid or superstitious as we … Continue reading

Now seating Baggins, party of four

I would expect to see this at the Elrond’s Rivendell Bar & Grill but it was at my first visit to the Furniture Mall of America. The bigger shock was that this rather unique, impractical setup had sold tags on … Continue reading

This month’s über-nerdy header

June 1981 is when I really plunged into Dungeons & Dragons, or as the world has come to know it…D&D. There was a prologue to my 40-yeard-old hobby. After Xmas Break 1980-81, there was a new kid in my seventh-grade … Continue reading

RIP Sean Connery

2020 just couldn’t take a break could it, can’t let us enjoy a limited Halloween and have a little pause before the shitstorm election. I know Sean was 90ish yet I didn’t know he had been ill recently. I’m glad … Continue reading

I hope the king doesn’t kill the messenger

Wizk!ds is another reason why I wish I could live another 20-30 years. Their painted/unpainted miniatures for D&D and other roleplaying games. Man, when I was much younger with more time to enjoy gaming, we didn’t have such a good … Continue reading

Brownie the Dragon!

Brownie demonstrating a cat law…’if I fits, I sits,” as she takes up residency in the Playmobil castle I gave Aaron and Robin for the 2019 holidays. Such a funny little creature.

RIP Iam Holm

Ian will be remembered by me for all the support characters he provided to numerous favorite movies of mine. The duplicitous science officer Ash in Alien, the rival restaurant owner Pascal in Big Night, Bilbo Baggins in Lord of the Rings, greedy head … Continue reading

A flying ship!

With the return of the Eberron Campaign (a pseudo Steampunk world) to D&D comes the awesome minis to flesh out that world! I do have the core book explaining it but regardless, I had to have this sky boat. Being … Continue reading

Rocketman

When it comes to a Biography or Auto-Biography movie, this is more like it! Right away the tagline says, “The only way to tell his story is to live his Fantasy.” Even if it weren’t Elton John, this should’ve been … Continue reading

Disenchantment characters remade seriously

My friend Steve (or as I refer to him as Stvee) did these “serious takes” on six key characters from my fave Disenchantment as part of a recent art challenge. I threw in some extra money toward his Kickstarter for going … Continue reading
