I made a thing. And now you can experience how much better Gladiator would have been if Maximus wasn't a chump that got shanked in the shower and only won because he could beat up a nerd before he croaked.

Great article by +Jon Mollison on the Phantom Moviegoers of China -- check it out. From the referenced AP piece:

"Analyst David Hancock estimates China’s screen density ratio will grow to about 57 screens per million over the next five to 10 years.

'The country is still under-screened, and there seems to be little reason to stop building screens where there are none,' Hancock said."

How 20th Century Fox-y. That smell you detect is FEAR.

"Nothing to see here! Move along! Move along!"

As always, "don't give money to people who hate you".

Just checked the official results for last week's half-marathon. Chip time was 2:02:33, and I'll take that five minute bump to the bank. Top 20 percent of all finishers and 11 in a tough mens 40-49 division against military bris? Yeah, I'm feeling good about next Sunday's 20k right about now.

WorldCon is burning.

The panels don't have enough representation for the Diversity Uber Alles crowd. They mis-gendered a guest. Gatekeepers are gatekeeping, and Scalzi stepped down from the one panel he was slated to sit on to make room for new voices.

Here's just one example. I'm literally shaking*.

"I’m appalled at the way Hugo nominees & queer/poc creators are being treated by #worldcon

All of you deserve better than that. You earned those nominations through your brilliant, fresh, creative, & significant works of fiction.

We see you. We support you."

*Shaking up my cocktail mixer as I prepare to sit back and enjoy the show with a nice relaxing adult beverage.

Welcome to the back alley gaming and culture convos, +Raymond Solar. Can't help but notice you bringing a lot of heat with your posts. Mind if I ask how you found this corner of the game-o-sphere?

In case any of you missed it, I posted a quick AAR of a one-shot dungeon played via web conference. The camera worked well enough with the miniature set-up, but this little dungeon will really shine as a convention game. Insulation foam framed in wood, with 15mm figures makes everything look top-notch, and the prep time is minimal. Throw it down and you're ready to play.

People who try to atheistsplain why Catholics should ignore Leo XIII in favor of socialist heretics who don the collar make me daydream about an Albigensian Crusade 2.0.
