Roy's speech isn't contradicted, it's a juxtaposition highlighting the contrast between the two teams.

Well put, and more accurate than my statement when just looking at OotS as the main 6 characters of the webcomic (plus Blackwing). But I was thinking of the fight in the larger sense of the "team" being those on the airship vs. the enemy frost giants; in that sense, I think my statement can also stand.

The "Mr. Holmes" book arrived: A Slight Trick of the Mind, by Mitch Cullins. So far it is tracking pretty closely to the movie, but I read that it will diverge from the film in interesting ways, so I'm hoping to be surprised. I can't judge yet, but it has a high standard to live up to, since I loved Ian McKellen and Laura Linney in the movie.

Woo! Vampire movies! I can watch The Lost Boys or Vamp or Near Dark on endless repeat.

For comedies, it's Clue, Oscar, A Fish Called Wanda, Soapdish, etc.

There's also pulpy stuff (some campy, some almost serious), like The Shadow, The Rocketeer, The Phantom, Flash Gordon or Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

Have you seen Without a Clue? Michael Caine as Sherlock Holmes and Ben Kingsley as Dr. Watson. Hilarious!

I finished Paris in the 20th Century. It had a suitably French, downer ending, with the protagonist dying in a winter cemetary. I can see why it didn't get published in Verne's lifetime.

Now I'm reading another Winter themed book: The Left Hand of Darkness. It's a reread. The last time I read it in high school, so I have totally forgotten the ending, although certain scenes remain in my head. e.g. Genly Ai walking through a forest of red trees, the landships driving over the snow. Le Guin is very good at worldbuilding in her description - just in her own, subtle way. However, on the second reading, I've discovered places where the connections between this book and her other "Hainish" books rubs a bit thin - that is, it stretches probability farther than it needs to go in order to make a tenuous in-text connection. Unless she's trying to make a point about the nature of the novel or point out its construction as a creation of her authorship, which would be very post-modern (despite Cervantes having done it), and I don't think she's trying to do that. It could be stealth marketing...But that kind of thing doesn't affect me. Hmm....Maybe I should go check out Rocannon's World...

I was expecting the tedious misogyny in Paris in the 20th Century, because I skimmed through before reading, but it is inadvertently funny when a character says, "There have been no true women since our grandmothers' time..." and he's supposed to be a guy in his 30s. Hold on there, Jules, you're getting way ahead of yourself. The GMILF won't be a "thing" until at least the 1970s*!

*e.g. "Harold and Maude" et al.

I've put Rite of Passage on pause for now after not getting very far in it. I've turned to Jules Verne's Paris in the 20th Century. I'm really enjoying it, and it reads quickly despite my needing to page through the endnotes when he name-drops now-obscure 19th c. industrialists.

V's familiar is certainly a highlight of the comic; and probably a pleasant surprise to Rich how much he could mine the character for sarcastic quips as well as act as an audience surrogate.

I also like how Rich set up the frames/gutters for the giant-killing sequence. Belkar's never been my favorite character but he lends himself nicely to action sequences!

For my next three picks: why not a city under the distant shore, such as those mentioned in "Oceans of Golarion" from Raiders of the Fever Sea?

5) The cecaelias city of Sihuw.

6) Alohmba, built on the shell of Belimehu the Blind Mother.

7) The Tian Xia nation of Xidao (probably a bit more accessible than the first two for air-breathers).

1) Somewhere in Casmaron; possibly Kaladay. I'd love to find out what a city with a large Sweettalkers population would look like (or sound like).

2) Another monster city. Dhucharg was a surprise highlight of the Distant Shores book for me. It had so many seeds for adventure!

3) Mzali! I know there's already some information on this city, but it'd be nice to see it expanded with a nice map and additional locations, and cultural details.

4) Somewhere in Arcadia; possibly a city in Razatlan.

So what did everyone get this year? I picked up a bunch of kid-friendly freebies I can pass on to my sister for her classroom (I highly recommend the "Mouse Guard" comic that came in a compilation with "Lumberjanes". It has Gorgeous Art!) and I bought some Rat Queen issues.

Here's a link to the Free Comic Book Day website Link

This sounds great! The 32 page modules were "just right" for the limited time my group had to play, so this might fill that one-shot niche while also offering more for folks who want to run a longer game. It also sounds like the turn-around time for the final product will be quicker with 3 authors working on their parts at once.

It'd be cool if going forward the modules mix it up between offering "anthologies" for short sessions/one-shots and "mini-campaigns" for those who want something longer with a unified theme or arc.

I liked table-reading Shakespeare when I was in college. I felt I learned the most with that combination of hands-on acting and reading, with background reading/research sloughing off of it as needed. I also really liked Shakespeare in high school, but I was reading him on my own as well at the time so I didn't have much trouble with his language. After the weak-sauce of "Romeo and Juliet" I got to study "Henry IV" - & my English elective teacher looked like Falstaff!

They had an article on the recent DVD release of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" in the Los Angeles Times today. It works as a film, apparently because Tom Stoppard directed it. But it is also post-Walter Benjamin's "Task of the Translator", an Absurdist play working on different levels. Which is kind of why I like Julie Taymor's film "Titus" and her adaptation of "The Lion King" as a play. Things don't always have to resemble themselves. Plays can be films, if the difference of the medium is respected. Kurosawa's "Ran" is a great movie! & I own a comic-book version of the Iliad!

However, my favorite "Hamlet" movie is the scene in Last Action Hero, with Arnold. ; P

Following Kajehase's example:

1) Don Quixote, by Cervantes. Loads of humor and much more lighthearted than the Dale Wasserman musical!

2) Hold Tight, Don't Let Go, by Laura Rose Wagner. Set in Haiti after the earthquake, this is the only book that made me cry this year. Excellent!

3) Nightglass, by Liane Merciel. For a story set in Nidal, very tastefully done and the traditional redemption arc made me feel good. It reminded me I haven't read a Western in a long time.

Krull

Why it bombed: sci-fi fantasy mashup with cheesy special effects and plot (didn't help that it went up against "Star Wars" during its release).

Why it rocks: soundtrack, cheesy-aweome sets, so very, very Dungeons & Dragons in the manner of its sci-fantasy mashing. Really the whole reason I like Numeria in Pathfinder is because I saw "Krull" as a kid.

Cutthroat Island!
1995, starring Gena Davis. One of the biggest box office bombs ever... but 12 year old me thought Matthew Modine was just too amazing and that Geena Davis was the ultimate "action girl"!

I guess it's nostalgia for my misspent youth, but I still like the movie.

CI also has some of Frank Langella's worst acting moments ever caught on film, and that's including the 2000 mini-series of Jason and the Argonauts, a Dino de Laurentiis production (he was also a producer on Flash Gordon!).
