For Your Perusal

Playing with Prisma. Here's a photo I took of Lake and Mount Chocorua in New Hampshire, and my favorite Prisma filter versions of it.

Hey geeks! We're trying out a new thing. As part of writing SMBC, I try to read a lot of books. I've been posting these reviews to my patreon page*, mostly for fun. A reader recommended I add amazon affiliate links, and we decided to give it a go. The basic deal is that I'll post my book reviews ...

More Combat Commander: Europe was the game of the evening. We're still playing through the Normandy scenarios, and this time it was a motley collection of Canadians and Free French who slaughtered my poor Germans.

Being a sometimes "dead inside" Gen Xer myself, I appreciate the dark humor of this tweet. :)

With one person showing up to game night, we broke out Combat Commander: Europe. My Germans are attempting to push the Americans off the Normandy shore.

In the close-up photo, a German hero jumped into an American foxhole and single-handedly defeated the squad that was in there.

It's all for naught, though, as the Americans will likely win this game.

I've been fondly remembering Babylon 5 of late, and this outtake - showing a character several years after the event of the series recounting events that take place several years before the series - is rather moving.

Just spent a fantastic night with friends, trying out bagna cauda for the first time ever. Now, +Billy Fish​ and I have been meaning to make it for the past 20 years, ever since learning of its existence on Babylon 5. We're nothing if not epic-level procrastinators.

It took a friend of his, disgusted with us that we hadn't made it yet, to gather the ingredients and do most of the cooking, but we finally did it.

Best of all was the nerd-fest that the four of us who were there, had. Talking of Penny Dreadful, The Expanse, Tolkien, and (of course) lots and lots of Babylon 5.

If you've never seen this 90's-era "novel made for TV" granddaddy of epic story SF series, you owe it to yourselves to watch this oh so fun space opera. Characters that have amazing story arcs, human and alien societies in upheaval, ancient enemies... it's all there. Watch it! :)

I personally believe it is probably the best written, best acted SF tv series that has been aired to date. Certainly superior to its contemporaries of that decade.
