"An ancient voicemail message heralds the arrival of a legendary grief counselor"

I'm not Grey Pawn, but that's some awesome stuff!

Saw Spy tonight. I can't remember when the last time was that I laughed out loud so much in the theater. The main reason I liked it so much is that she is able to be dorky, awkward,  and sometimes a little clumsy while also being competent on many levels and kind of a bad ass. In all of the McCarthy vehicles that I've seen, Hollywood somehow manages to let her be funny without making fun of herself. It's a balancing act that even heavier male actors have had a hard time pulling off. You could put any of the many talented comedic actresses working today into the role and it wouldn't substantially change the movie. Except that McCarthy's brand of humor is something that even talented actresses can't pull off as well as she can.

I'm guessing that all of my circles already know this, but Ross Cowman's Fall of Magic is the cat's pajamas. Please throw your money at him now.

Ross is doing an amazing job making games of the imagination that involve visceral, tactile experiences. Seriously. Go get it.

Ross Cowman is raising funds for Fall of Magic – a role playing game of profound fantasy on Kickstarter! Elegant and immersive – featuring a handmade scroll that unrolls as we travel revealing new roads, strange hosts, and perilous choices.

It is my considered opinion that Steven Universe is the best show on TV right now. Possibly the best show on TV ever. It takes a while for it to really get going, but over its two seasons it has trusted its audience with bigger questions and bigger truths than any show I can think of.

Also if you like Steven Universe I would highly recommend "Over the Garden Wall".

If you know me at all, you probably know that I love dice, both as utilitarian random-number-generators and as aesthetic objects. If you share my love of dice in any measure, you should check out the campaign for Halfsies Dice, which is currently winding down on Kickstarter. These are going to be some nice dice, and they are priced competitively. They also come out a the end of the year, so you could buy a bunch to stuff in people's stockings (or otherwise give away to loved ones at the end of the year).

Those are neat and I can think of really fun game effects the two-color dice would allow.

A blessedly limited one, because I need the two hours a day I'd lose to it if I paid for unlimited access.

Hey, so I'm not usually about spreading memes or anything, but I am really into kitty-high-five gifs. This is one of my favorites, because the cat seems almost too cool to take part, but grudgingly participates to indulge the human.

Every time I hear that someone I love isn't doing a thing, like going to a convention or event, because they were excluded, or made to feel unwelcome, or stressed out by bummer stuff going on there, or generally marginalized by dominant subcultural trends, it makes me sad and angry. Why can't we all just be cool to each other and stop being jerks?

Be cool, gamers, be cool.

+Jobe Bittman I will politely and firmly disagree with you. Sometimes, missing something you love is a calculated cost and that sucks. Do not mistake self preservation for lack of interest. My two cents. :-)
