The comic was btter than the movie if you have a chance try and pick up a copy of the comic.

ha ha I did not know you were a gardener type.

The Brimfield Fair is the world's largest outdoor Antique Fair. It's huge will all sorts of stuff there. Carolyn and I like the antique stuff.

What kind of dogs do you have? I thought goblins hated dogs?

So going to check out the Methodist book sale huh. I may pick up some nice hard cover books tomorrow if the price is right.

I am NOT the gardening type. I am, however, the brute muscle, "I pick things up and put them down" type. Comes in very useful for hauling horse shiznit and wood for raised beds. The detailed work is done by others.

There's rhubarb, swiss chard, peppers, tomatoes, radishes, corn, etc., etc. I don't even like vegetables that much.

One dog was a rescue dog--we're not sure what he us, but we guess he's some kind of akia (sp?) mutt. The puppies are a Belgian Melnaus (sp?--some kind of Israeli attack dog) and some kind of spaniel. I prefer cats.

I've only been in involved in one pbp and it has been moving at a glacial pace--I didn't realize you were going at it so frenetically.

Besides, I thought the MB was sparring with a gnome while the CM got laid. Would you like detailed posts about my cocksmanship? 'Cuz I can do that.


The film of V for Vendetta made me want to cry.

I haven't been able to make it to any of the films that I want to see. Because I'm lazy.

That game makes me want to trip, Gark!


Have you guys met my new girlfriend?

I already posted this in the Music forums, but my love needs to be expressed more openly!


When did you guys start dating? She seems very nice.

Well I was adding things once a day or so. I did not think it was that frantic or frenzied pace. I was very interested though to see what other enemies you might have. As far as details on your "special" skills I think it is implied you are good at what you do no details needed.


I work slower than you. Probably because I am a Teamster. But I did post my stats, finally.


Off to church!


Ah to get new books?

Did the film V for Vendetta make you cry because it was good or bad? I didn't mind it but it was no where near as good as the comic.


The Methodist booksale was lame this year:

The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey
Troilus & Criseyde by Chaucer
Fates Worse Than Death by Kurt Vonnegut

for $2. Which isn't terrible, but I've done better. Those Methodists better start reading better books!

I didn't much care for V. Hold on a second...

EDIT: From the bestest thread on Paizo!

Spoiler:
Imho, all films of AM's works have been disappointing. My initial reaction to viewing each and every one was rage, loathing and contempt. From Hell did, at least, have Heather Graham. She's hot.

V for Vendetta, in particular, was memorable because I went with my friend Mike. Mike was a V fan from way back and described his politics and lifestyle as "nihilist." Upon entering the movie theater Mike remarked, "You know, either this movie is going to be wicked awesome and I'm going to want to burn stuff or this movie is going to suck and I'm going to want to burn stuff. Either way, stuff is going to get burned." Well, luckily it turned out to be merely bravado, but afterwards Mike and I both described feeling degraded and ill. We might have gotten drunk and caused minor vandalism in the downtown Boston area. I don't remember.

Anyway, as for the man's work: I, personally, have been moved to tears by Promethea, Top 10, "V" for Vendetta, The Watchmen and From Hell. I didn't cry, but I also loved LXG and Tom Strong. I even have, but have never read, that porn book he did with Alice, Wendy and Dorothy. Hee hee!

What have I missed?

And then Hitdice told me about Brought to Light and I didn't listen to him because I'm a narcissist.

Andoran

I have put on hold the comic version.

The movie was great in the same way Avatar was great, but I can see how some people would not like it.


Carrion Crown spoilers!

Spoiler:
So, the party was investigating the ruins of the Sanctuary Asylum when they uncovered clues that the not-so-good Dr. Brada was dealing in shady graverobbing business with the local capitalists, Vorkstag and Grine.

Except, that, being modern scientifically-minded liberals, they didn't think graverobbing was that big a deal. So, when the party went back to town, they all split up to talk to contacts, restock healing potions, whatever.

Lodi Carene, halfling summoner, took it upon himself to go interview V&G. So he walks up to the factory, rings the bell, and waits for Mr. Grine, the dark creeper, to answer the door.

"There are no deliveries scheduled today!" he shouts.

"Yes, I know."

"Who are you and what do you want?"

"I am Lodi Carene, a wandering adventurer and Officer of the Court of Lepidstadt. I heard that this was a good place to pick up alchemical gewgaws and body parts."

"What?!?"

"Yes, I was investigating the recent fire at Dr. Brada's asylum and I ran across some paperwork that indicated that you and he used to do business in corpses. Can we talk about it?"

"Yes, yes, hold on a moment, come right in..."

So he got ambushed by a bunch of mongrelmen and almost died.

In fact, the only reason he didn't die was because I had to handwave some stuff so that the other players didn't sit around doing nothing for the rest of the night.

As it was, they still got effed up.

Flesh golem hounds rule!!

I actually thought that Watchmen the movie did a very good job and held to the true sense of what he tried to accomplish with the comic. I was actually sad the film did not do better that it did.

Hellblazer and John Constantine how could you forget that comic? Though I think Alan Moore did the Swamp Thing which then lead to Hell Blazer.

How was the weekend besides the poor Methodist book fair. The Brimfield Fair was huge and we did not do that well there oursleves. What did you get your mother for Mother's Day? I picked my mom up a 2 1/2 foot tall cement bunny for her garden (picked it up at the fair).

I spent time with the wife yesterday planting stuff for the porch as well as doing spring cleaning in the house.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It's too f@@#ing early in the morning to go to school.


Whah whah whah.


The Watchmen movie undermined Moore's theme from the comic by practically writing Laurie out of the script. You do that and Rorschach becomes the only character in the story who's actually doing anything, and thus the hero of the story.

In the comic, Rorschach, with the crappy, crappy life experience he's had, is a sympathetic character, but I can't feel anything but pity for him.

The growth Laurie shows in her different treatment of her mother in the first scene in chapter 2 and the next to last scene in the last chapter beautifully illustrates Veidt's "Daniel, go up," statement about heroism. It may sound like a very small point, but it's important that, in the comic, Laurie's reconciliation with her mother just sorta happens right there in front of Dan, whereas in the movie he disappears of screen because people are supposed to give eachother privacy or something.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but I think Watchmen is exactly the movie you'd get if a person who didn't actually understand the work directed the movie. This is my opinion of every movie made from a comic by Alan Moore.

In other news, I'm re-reading Lord Valentine's Castle; there's a french comic adaptation!

Wow, halfway through composing my post I forgot this wasn't the What Are You Currently Reading thread; MOAR COFFEE NAO!!


Don't go over there, Hitdice, Samnell is stretched out naked with his Kindle!

Gruumash., I went halvsies with my sister on a glider. 'Cos old people love rocking chairs!


Dude, I know, I read it and was all, "It's not a problem if you're willing to walk around the house naked."


Excellent gift Doodlebug.

Hitdice, Not sure I agree with you on that but for the sake of civility lets leave it at that you are obviously very passionate about this and I don't want to take away from that. I read both the comic and watched the film and I enjoyed both and was happy to see Alan's work on film and I wished it had done better. As I think the other work put to film was quite poor I did not think this was the case with the Watchmen. But lets agree to disagree on that point.

How was everyone else's weekend?


See Carrion Crown spoiler post.

Everybody:

What did you get your mother (assuming that you like her) for Mother's Day?


Saw the spoiler post: good stuff flesh golem hounds I had fogotten about those guys I will need to read up on those guys again.

Mother's Day gift: 2 1/2 foot tall cement bunny, as well as some lithographs of fish and yes I do like my mother. Her birthday is May 8th so I always get her a few items.

Andoran

Fish are cool; my other personality is a fish.

I made my mother a rhubarb pie but either used too much sugar or did not cut the rhubarb enough, as there was a lot of excess sugar in the filling. Bluh.


What kind of fish?

My other personality is a fish too ... a Great White Shark or otherwise known as the Carcharodon carcharias, one of the most majestic and wonderful animals out there.

Sometimes it takes me about 24 hours to understand what people are saying.

Hee hee!

I meant that literally, actually. The instructor wasn't even there yet.

Being early for class is GOAT because you can finish your homework, assuming you carry all your books in your monstrously large packback at all tims.

Hmmm. How would you guys spell "whanh-whanh-whanh?" [Mocking sound effect of baby crying]

That does nothing when the classroom is still locked.


I think the way you spelled it the first time ... but what do I know?


I don't know what you know, but I was looking at it again and I thought "Is that a baby crying, an adult from Peanuts talking, mockery or what?" I meant a baby crying.


Well I know some things like the fact there is some posting to be done in the Swords of Sigils. Other than that I know that I got the sense that you were talking about a baby crying.

Any of you fine goblin-loving folks reading through Skull & Shackles?

I think this may be my new favorite AP!


Yes as resident pirate I am quite happy with the new AP. I like it alot. Especially the new magic items I like that they have some flavor to them not a a standard +1 , +2 magic item or the like.

Very cool themes I am thinking it ranks up there with some of the others like Kingmaker and I also really liked the arabian knights themed one.

I can't wait to see where is path takes us so far the trip is a good one.

Agreed on the "flavor" for S&S, but the actual #'s and design is fantastic.

Tough fights, plenty of player agency, and lots of interesting subsystems playing together with each other.

I can't wait to run it!


I haven't read much of anything Pathfinder-related since I started running Carrion Crown. :(

Skulls and Shackles is Gruumash approved.

DB-AB, I would suggest you simply enjoy the piratical themes as a player...seems like it's tailor made for your type of shenanigans!


No doubt I think he would very much enjoy to run through the campaign. Perhaps we could work it out with patrick? Or if he wants I could run it.


Psionichamster, where in the great Northeast USA do you live?

Ish. You don't, like, have to give your address or nothing.


I wonder if I could make a new dice set for Pathfinder using clay?


Alright, I'm done. See you tonight!

I live near New Haven, CT.

Or, as I like to call it, Yale, CT.

If you don't mind a little imprecision, sure, why not?

The d12's and d20's will be hardest (d12's because they're irregular polygons, and d20's because of they have so many little faces...)

Adios me amigos.

Chat later.

I think we've got the potential for a regional FAWTL-Refugee-con!


In answer to your question in the Music thread, Mad Badger, I went to UMass Boston. Where'd you go?

Also, I never was a member of the Communist Party. They're a bunch of stooges of the plutocracy!


Muhlenberg College in Allentown PA.

I got in because of my wrestling ability rather than my scholarly skills.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I live in the great state of Ohio...which now that I think about it, isn't all that great.


I live in southwestern Montana at the moment.


I want it so bad.

Do you live near Columbus, by any chance?
