Need an opinion (even if you're an out of town friend and can't be here in October for the gathering I would still love to hear any thoughts and opinions). As most of you know, I do a bit of haunted theater (a sort of spooky storytelling magic show for the uninitiated) at the end of the evening. I've been tossing around this idea of making the entire party a bit more interactive and engaging. I'm not even sure what to call it except maybe Haunted Storytime. But the idea is that before the show everyone can have a chance at performing something and being in the spotlight. Whether it's writing and/or reading a spooky poem, telling a scary story, doing a bit of theater or puppet show, or even sing a song. While I'm sure it would mostly be the kids the stage is open to everyone who wants to present or share something spooky. I guess kinda like a haunted show-n-tell. You can work separate or in groups. It doesn't have to be a major production (but don't limit yourself either) and should be no more than about 10 minutes tops so everyone gets a chance. But it should NEVER feel like homework because no one HAS to do it. Run it by your kids. Get some input and suggestions. This is a new idea and I would love to see where it goes.

This (and Netflix's Voltron reboot) got me thinking about Robotech again. Robotech (and Speed Racer) are what got me into anime when I was a kid.

Every now and then Harmony Gold tries to get it's feet back on the ground with this show. But in all honesty - it SERIOUSLY needs a reboot. I mean total ground up reboot. I know a lot of the visuals are iconic but most otaku's know the origins with divisive opinions. But I love Robotech for the story more than the visuals.

They just need to take and make one big cohesive story visually. Maybe bring in Jack McKinney (I much preferred the direction he took in the novelizations than the comics went the first time). Ditch all the mecha stolen borrowed from Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada and come up with entirely new mecha for the reboot while telling the same basic story. It should resolve a lot of the trademark issues as well. Let Netflix do it and maybe bring in the same studio from Voltron. I want to see something fresh.

There is nothing I can add to this, but +Christopher Butler sums it up better than I, heck most of us, could have articulated.
 
Our collective problem in dealing with tragedies of this nature and magnitude is that while we are all trying to coming to terms with the horror of this kind of mass murder, half of our 21st century brains are also beginning to weave the simplest possible narrative that fits in with whatever social programming each of us is working with.

Some of us are angry at guns, some of us are angry at calls for gun control. Some of us are angry at Muslims, some of us are angry at islamophobia. Our instant communication technologies have allowed us to begin immediately abstracting real events into a series of mental compositions around which we explore our need for indignant self-righteousness or our personal crusades.

But our situation is far more complicated and nuanced than all of this. But we need to face facts: most of us are no longer capable of expressing nuances that extend much beyond a bumper sticker.

Confess to yourself: reading this, you've been trying to determine who I'm blaming or who I'm angry with, haven't you? "What's he saying? Whose 'side' is he on? Is he anti-gun? Anti-gun control? Islamophobia? Where is he placing blame?" Very possibly you read this as a naive, navel-gazing reaction from someone who lacks the courage of the convictions instilled in you by your philosophy on society and people. Fair enough.

I have no narrative for this. I have no call to action, apart from the need for basic, compassionate humanity. Tragedies like this, and the state of society in 2016, have no narratives to which we owe our allegiance. We don't need religion to tell us this is wrong, we don't need a bumper sticker as a scaffold around which we construct an abstract narrative of political blame.

It's a tragedy. And for a moment, just let it be a tragedy, something that you can respond to as a human being first. Our politics, such as they are, dim as they are, will not make this make sense...and if we can refrain from adding another bumper sticker for just a day, it won't make any difference in the real world.

For the time being, try living in a world that is not abstract, because a lot of people died today and it grieves me that the reality of those people...their names, the little mysteries that each and every human alive carries with them....are now destroyed forever and likely to be washed away by the grinding narratives of politics.

Ugh, why is this even a thing?! It's a billboard for a movie containing fictional mutant characters depicting a supervillain god doing what supervillains do... Villainous things like you know - hurting the heroes. The genders of the characters are completely irrelevant here. But you can bet dollars to donuts this would not even be an issue if it were reversed.

Deadpool said it best when fighting Angel "Is it sexist if I hit you or sexist if I don't?"

I follow +GeekTyrant in my RSS reader and occasionally get bits from +GameTyrant as well. While I'm on the opposite side of the country and barely get any game time these days. Seeing this filled me with joy. I had no idea LAN Centers were still viable businesses as they've pretty much all but disappeared in CT. We were gonna open one at one point but never had the funds to contribute to get it started. Not to mention I'd have to run it for years on the side of my full time gig before breaking green. Kick some ass guys!
GameTyrant LAN•Center in North Salt Lake is Utah's premier deicated gaming and tournament center. Located at 640 N Main St, Suite 216, North Salt Lake, UT 84054. Hours are Mon-Thu: 5:00 pm - 1:00 am, Fri & Sat: Noon - 3:00 am.

This absolutely made my day.
With all the great horror on TV right now, one thing is sorely missing: a show based on the works of HP Lovecraft. But that could be changing soon as Dread Central was tipped off today that Legendary TV has… Continue Reading →

Dear science, is it too much to ask for an untanglable Slinky? Untangling my 4yr old's Slinky has gone from a fun interesting puzzle to "oh my god, you tangled that darn thing AGAIN? *SIGH*".

Sadly, as much as most of us hate to admit it, he has a valid point. Intelligent "cerebral" movies just don't bring in the $$$ anymore. If anyone has been paying attention smart movies have been on the decline for decades. Smart science fiction is slowly giving way to the Michael Bay era of big effects and explosions. The same could be said for comedy (just look at the humor in reboots vs originals - slapstick and poop jokes over the intelligent wit of older films). I mean it's not ALL done and said. There's the occasional gem every now and then.
Pine says "Star Trek" has to have "wham-bam explosions and planets blowing up" in this day and age.

You'll worry less about what people think about you when you realize how seldom they do.
Introduction
"As a species we're fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another. Why do you think we invented politics and religion?" -The Mist

Old school programming ninja and mobile technology samurai by day; necromancer, monster maker and connoisseur of all things dark and creepy by night. 

During the day I cloak myself in technology. But its old technology which I thrive in most. When others teeter on the cutting edge of the latest and greatest leaving behind the old. I'm like a ninja in the shadows behind the scenes, masterfully sharpening my shuriken and kunai, forging unheard of weapons others couldn't even dream of much less thought were even possible.

When the last light of the setting sun sputters out I trade in my ninja gear for my necromancer's robes and forbidden tomes filled with unspeakably dark magicks. I am that which your parents never dare speak of. I am the fear that lurks within the darkness and the shadows that dwells within your mind. I am the monster maker and nightmare creator.

Even though I'm a masterful ninja my true passion lies on the darker side of life. I've dabbled in everything from designing gothic horror RPGs, writing dark electronica, to what I'm truly best at - crafting creatures of darkness to scare the bejezus out of the little ones when they come to my door begging for candy on Halloween night.

Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill...
