  • What I'm Watching: October Faction

    What I'm Watching: October Faction

    Adapted from an IDW comic. The comic is by spooky Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), with Damien Worms' art, which ranges from blatantly ripping off Charles Addams' "Addams Family" cartoons, to blatantly ripping off Ben Templesmith who formerly worked with Niles; and Ben's entire career is ripping off Bill Sienkiewicz. I've read one of … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: October Faction"Read More »

  • What I'm Watching: Harley Quinn

    What I'm Watching: Harley Quinn

    HoboMax delivers a mostly-adult-oriented cartoon about recently-separted-from-Mistah-J Harlequinn/Harley Quinn. Voice-actor is Kaley Cuoco (the annoying chick from the more annoying Big Bang Laugh Track Show), who is better than I expected, but doesn't really hit the shrill Joisey girl accent I expect; Poison Ivy, her slightly but not too overtly lesbian (well, you'd think, but … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Harley Quinn"Read More »
  • MysticDungeon.club Random Thursday Update

    MysticDungeon.club Random Thursday Update

    Mystic Dungeon has a small update today. Redesigned the front as a software gallery, got Portal Worlds working with my common input system, adapted Amazing (the dumb maze game). I might get Heist adapted this weekend. Cityscape needs either a custom character set, or I add sprite graphics to the retro screen, which is a … Continue reading "MysticDungeon.club Random Thursday Update"Read More »
  • Racket CS 7.8

    Racket CS 7.8

    New Racket CS 7.8: CS is Chez Scheme, BC is the old half-assed C runtime. Big plus: ARM64 support! Big minus: Neither DRRacket nor any built .app launches on the Mac, you have to call them from command line. Gross incompetence & zero testing. My basic gridtest.rkt demo still takes 100ms to render a frame, … Continue reading "Racket CS 7.8"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Friday the 13th (2009)

    What I'm Watching: Friday the 13th (2009)

    A little palate cleanser before I watch something serious, and it's leaving HoboMax tomorrow. I make sure to check the "Leaving Soon" tab near the end of every month; Hobo doesn't pay for these films in perpetuity, and really stacked the deck on launch. In a few months they may be down to nothing. Dumb … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Friday the 13th (2009)"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: I'll Be Gone in the Dark

    What I'm Watching: I'll Be Gone in the Dark

    Michelle McNamara, Patton Oswalt's late wife, was a crime podcaster/writer. The one she wrote about was the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker (rather overly functionally named: EAR/ONS). Much of this is framed in interviews with Patton in the few years since her death (prescription drug overdose), and it's certainly awkward watching him, not doing standup … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: I'll Be Gone in the Dark"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: The Old Guard

    What I'm Watching: The Old Guard

    A 'flix adaptation of a Greg Rucka comic; I haven't read this one, but his series Lazarus and Queen & Country are also headed to adaptations. I'm more interested in Lazarus, post-apocalypse feudal lords with engineered female super-soldiers. Greg's got a similar "type" to mine, and buff women is it. I'm not going to spoil … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: The Old Guard"Read More »

    The Best Thing About RSS

    … is it's not anything like Twitter. I was over there checking my notifications, a daily chore but also sometimes there's something good if I don't scroll too long. But also just endless shit that makes me mad from randos. Well, that shouldn't happen, I've curated my follows and turned off their retweets… Except Twitter … Continue reading "The Best Thing About RSS"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Barbarian Queen

    What I'm Watching: Barbarian Queen

    From the SHOUTFactory Sword and Sorcery Collection. Remember DVDs? You stick it in a slot and your movie just starts playing! First, trailers! Streets (1990): "The most brutal, sadistic killer on the streets… is a cop!" Yeah, no shit! That was true even in the '80s. Christina Applegate (age 19) is cute as a teenage … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Barbarian Queen"Read More »
