New game tonight... lets hope all goes well. Already have one player complaining because I don't want to go all Anime and have high flying super ninjas.
Luck with that CJ.

Thank you.

Meet and greet and game set up tonight. Rough idea is the old necromancers game mod wizards amulet/crucible of Freya, mainly because I have and have ran it before and it is more than a bit sandboxy. I am however going to place the game in the land of the linnorm kings halfway betwixt Kalsgard and Trollhiem, with the name of the town renamed to Winterhaven. I think it is a good set up and a nice intro to Golarion without using every damned option. Sometimes less is more.

I ran that in the Scarred Lands. It was a blast!

Spoiler:
I meshed in the evil adventuring party from Into the Haunted Forest (?--forget the exact name; early Pathfinder module) and it was tons of fun! My artist player made drew a great picture of the party slaughtering the baby manticores! The ettin with the helm of opposite alignment was hilarious, too!

5-3 victory in hockey last night, against a previously undefeated team!

Scarab Sages

I was at a fight once, and a hockey game broke out.

Scarab Sages

Mmmm.....leftover sphagetti and meatsauce.

Scarab Sages

Hmmm...mebbe another mini blitz?

Nope no fighting or checking, not that that stops some people.

Classified docs reveal why Tolkien failed to win '61 Nobel Prize

Interesting......


This was the Wartime Broadcasting Service's planned response to a nuclear attack on Great Britain in the 80s.

Is that creepy, or is it creepy? Could you imagine hearing this?

Scarab Sages

Apparently, the dude chosen as the villain in the next Star Trek flick is named Benedict Cumberbatch.

Now that is a name with style.

Incidently, I liked the last Star Trek flick. I thought it was interesting.

The rumor for the next flick is that the villain will be Khan.

Scarab Sages

But something tells me that's just some folks wishful thinking. Me, I'm betting Romulans.

Scarab Sages

Speaking further of movies and Benedict Cumberbatch: he will also be providing the voice, and apparently some motion capture, for Smaug in the Hobbit movie.

Scarab Sages

My oldest brother once attended school at a Benedictin monastery/college.

Scarab Sages

It was a pretty cool place. The church and rectory dinning hall both had paintings done by this old German monk who had lived there. Really cool stuff.

Scarab Sages

The dinning hall painting was a big mural of the Last Supper, complete with salt & pepper shakers and ashtrays on the table, and a Judas with flames for hair. The dude definitely had a sense of humor.

Scarab Sages

The Abbey (as it was often called) also had a summer camp that I attended 2 years running, once as a camper, the second time as a junior counselor.

Scarab Sages

And, Morgus the Magnificent used to attend church there.

Scarab Sages

sigh

I miss Morgus.

Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water coloured memories of the way we were.
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
smiles we gave to one another for the way we were.

Where'd everybody go?

Brainnnnssss?

I might try to watch my blu ray copy of Logan's Run this weekend.

Scarab Sages

Or maybe the Bruce Willis movie RED. Good flick. A co-worker reminded me of it today.

Scarab Sages

Or maybe Captain America, since I finally got my copy back from the aforementioned co-worker.

Scarab Sages

Decisions, decisions.

Scarab Sages

All righty, I'm done with this miniblitz for now. Oddly enough, despite already having eaten lunch, I find myself hungry again.

Scarab Sages

shambles off in search of food


@psionic hamster: Thanks for the suggestion. That actually should work to let me recover my music. :)

And in other good news with some help I found some of my photos and documents hiding out in a sub-sub-directory on my external hard drive. The thing is totally messed up and needs to be wiped clean once I extract what files it did back up, but at least I didn't lose everything. Just the recent stuff.


BRAINS!

Removed a post. This was flat out flame bait material. Do not do this thing.


@FHDM: Nuh-uh. That excuse doesn't fly. I have what can be kindly described as a special relationship with time, which is to say I have no sense of time whatsoever, but I still get the kidlet and myself to school on time every day. It's not easy. Especially when you're extra distractible, but I know it's possible. I just can't bear the rudeness of being late. My dad (who also has dyscalculia) made us late to everything when I was growing up and I hated it, always apologizing everywhere we went and never being able to just relax and enjoy stuff because we were always rushing around. So I learned how to be on time even with my crappy sense of time. Things are so much more peaceful that way.


Whalp. Time to go see Mr. Dentist again. Yay! Paying folks money to cause you pain FTW!

Later folks!

I didn't mean to start any fights. I'm just not a big fan, and don't think his work was the best candidate.

Just because you can post somewhere doesn't mean you should.

Not saying it wasn't flame bait. I'm saying that's not how it was intended.

Yeah that Lestat movie with Aaliyah was eminently forgettable.

Indeed. Sad thing is, I used to love the Anne Rice books. Even went to one of her public Halloween parties one year. I dressed as a priest - it was awesome. People kept coming up to take pictures with me.

Anyway, then a few years back, Rice got into some big stink with Al Copeland, the owner of Popeyes Fried Chicken, because he bought a refurbished a building she liked and had written into one of the Lestat books. She acted like a f!!~ing child during the whole fiasco. I haven't read any of her stuff since.

I liked her original trilogy, then she kinda got all Mary Sue about Lestat. Writers should never fall in love with their protagonists, it leads to sloppy writing. =/

Then there was her pretentiousness, which showed in all of her interviews. I really believe she thought she was the Greatest Writer Evar.

Then there was her conversion to Christianity, and then her Unconversion to Christianity, both of which I felt were awfully self-serving. I may not be Christian, but damn, if you're gonna convert to a religion and back out again, don't treat it like changing politics.

Yeah, and most of the books I read after were drecky. Some of the vampire bios were OK. Pandora I remember kindly.

She's a crazy one. I find her books hit or miss. The writing style is very... decadent? poetic? Not sure how to describe it, but it's like eating a very rich dessert. Sometimes I can't get enough of it, but other times I want her to hurry up and get to the point.

I have a feeling her romance novels are probably even more extravagant, although I don't think I could bring myself to read a romance novel.

I liked the first vampire book and thought the second one was okay, but by the end of the second one, I had stopped caring about the characters and didn't want to read more.

I loved Cry to Heaven.

Oh, and Anne Rice? "Meh".

Never really got into Goth culture, and vampires have never been a favorite subject of mine.

I'm not exactly the smartest or most intuitive person on these boards. I have a general tendency to miss points.

That's what I got deleted, but I said it about Tolkien. It was probably something in my tone, but I'm not sure.

Do you use a circular saw for that?

Sawzall actually. Circular saws can catch the nails, and that's never good. Sawzalls are much more forgiving. If you had a FB page I had some posted pics of the Celtic-knotwork grain on some of the 'real' logs I was splitting.

Tip for cheap woodburners: If a landscaper offers you unsplit wood for $100/cord, most like it is going to be all the pieces he didn't want to split himself. Man this stuff is GNARLY.

...Aand I still have to get to the dentists eep!

Morning Moorluck! Good luck with the n00b! Remember we were all n00bs once, be gentle!

I say new guy as in he was hired 3 months ago. This week boss is up in Boston with his girlfriend, and this guy has been late everyday.

Wed: 45min late, Thur: 20min late, Today: 10min late BEFORE he calls to tell me he's going to be another 30min.

I'm getting tired of calling the customers and telling them we're going to have to reschedule them on account of this douche.

Why does this guy still have a job?

EDIT: Naked what?
