Add a little tequila, lime, and salt for a Paloma.

Acquired for future video projects. Jury-rigged from a $15 tripod and parts from a $4 selfie stick. Best use of selfie stick ever, think.

I wish I had done this. I bought the fancy Gorilla one and it's not very good.

Justice League teaser thing from SDCC. It feels like they got the team who did the excellent Suicide Squad trailers to put this together. Looks dodgy in places — Flash and Cyborg look dumb in costume — but tonally it's not in a terrible place.

Still don't object to Batfleck. The problem in BvS was the typical Synder nihilism and callow superficiality. And Jesse Eisenberg.

why do I get the feeling the batarang will be a chekov's gun or a running gag?

It's coming along. I have to look a lot up. I had to look up how to draw triangles.

Scant Treatment—a review of GBE-1 Doctors' Orders, the setting supplement by +Mark Hunt for use with GANGBUSTERS: 1920’s Role-Playing Adventure Game.
For a great many, Dungeons & Dragons was their first RPG, but as popular as the game proved to be, this did not stop publisher, TSR, Inc., from diversifying and looking for potential success with other genres. This resulted i...

Really, fuck 2016.
When it came to politics, Jerry Doyle and I disagreed on, well, pretty much everything. Politically, Jerry was just to the right of Attila the Hun. There

When I saw it they just had Starfury dogfighting working but that was damn cool on its own. They should have released it.

So this morning I woke up to social media drama, and ran it down over my long bus ride. I needn't have bothered - it's everywhere now, even though I made a point of unfollowing the ugliest of the drama mavens ages ago.

I feel unqualified to respond in any substantive or helpful way. So I will mention again my personal policy, which, it must be said, I sometimes fail to live by.

I just try not to be a dick to anybody. Why can we not just all get behind that? The answer, of course, is that some people are just dicks. That they may be racists or sexists or transphobes or whatever seems incidental to me; if not over that, they'll find something else to be dicks about. And simply cutting them out of my own routine works for me, but it may not work for everyone. Because dicks.

Like I said, I don't have a good answer. This isn't one. The message I took away from Mark's post, though, is that we should be especially vigilant about identifying and isolating dicks on our "side", whatever side that might be. And that seems like decent advice. But it's not a panacea. It's not going to magically fix people who are unsalvagably toxic.

It's still a good rule. I just wish it was a workable solution.

Of the rush of trailers that hit yesterday, the one for Wonder Woman has me most excited and interested.

I've handed the Allies a substantial loss as the Central Power before.  Isolated and wiped out a good chunk of France's Army as well as the BEF.  Paris fell not long after.

Love this game because of the way it can swing.  Plus the true "war game" aspect to it, since it doesn't rely solely on the cards for everything (something I think Twilight Struggle could have done better).

Overrated. Not a bad restauant, but a terrible _German_ restaurant. Schmidt's sells itself as such, but the best sausage in the place is the distinctly non-German Bahama Mama - which is admittedly very good. And the creampuffs are amazing. The bratwurst, however, is of vending machine quality, and there is simply no excuse for that from a place with the pedigree of Schmidt's
