Yesterday's light swoling. I listened to Alice B. Sheldon/James Tiptree Jr.'s Beyond the Dead Reef while doing it. A great story about diving, and about how you might only be special the way a fly is special to the venus flytrap.

Alice B. Sheldon is an incredibly interesting person by the way.

"After her career with the CIA, she achieved a doctorate at George Washington University in Experimental Psychology in 1967, and her doctoral dissertation was on the responses of animals to novel stimuli in differing environments. You can see this reflected in her work, notably “The Screwfly Solution.”"

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

A doll sneaks into a dingy hotel room. It is a grotesque Nazi carricature of a jewish moneylender. On the bed a pregnant black woman is watching TV, oblivious to the danger. The doll cuts its way through the woman’s panties only to burst xenomorph-style from her belly, cradling the gore-splattered fetus in its arms. The woman stares at the bloody tableau in mute outrage as she bleeds out.

That’s one of the murders in Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and that’s the stuff around which the movie revolves. The Puppet Master franchise is a hole in my horror knowledge, but as far as I understand they’re all about an evil toymaker who commands his creations to commit murder. This latest installment adds the twist that the puppet master is a Nazi. As such the puppets choose their victims after a Nazi logic. During the movie lesbians, gays, jews, African-Americans, mixed-race couples and stoners (degenerates!) are killed in cartoonishly grisly ways. A Romani man has his penis cut off. And so on.

There isn’t much to say about the plot beyond these murders. Owners of the Nazi dolls congregate for an auction, and the dolls spring to hideous life.

I was appalled and entertained, and I always like Seeing Udo Kier (playing the puppet master) and Barbara Crampton (playing a veteran from a 1980s doll-spree) in a movie. It is not a classic though, and despite the outrageous scenes of Nazi-doll gore, it is no Braindead. Just not funny enough.

Also, it ends on a laaaame cliffhanger.

I have a poorly thought-out idea about using that big shiny d100 spell table in play. Anybody who is anybody (and upstarts like the PCs) has at least one spell, a 'style' like in a kung fu movie. Of course there'll be plenty of normal people, but you never know if the old lady with the apple cart is a seasoned practitioner of Affect Normal Fires Stance.
A single magic spell is less broadly applicable than kung fu, of course, so i don't expect every session to turn into Iron Monkey.

The new place is quite nice. Getting there is a piece of cake. I think I could manage four times a week.

I'm still working on my 'thing'. I may have had too much coffee and Darkest Dungeon.

Mankind is the grand product of the Almighty. Individually however, man is most commonly a disappointment, if not an outright beast. That is why you became a road warden. Out here you may serve mankind, without having to subject yourself unduly to the presence of man. You clear the roads of debris, of wolves and of brigands. These days however there are darker things out there, old wives’ tales sprung to ghastly life. You may have had to band together with townsfolk, but your true duties lie on the King’s roads and the common man’s lonely byways.
