  • What I'm Watching: 12 Monkeys (1995)

    What I'm Watching: 12 Monkeys (1995)

    Haven't seen this since the theatre when it came out. So, 1995. Bruce Willis was familiar from Moonlighting, and Die Hard, and his mediocre blues album The Return of Bruno, but hadn't become quite the caricature and one-note joke he is now. Brad Pitt had just come off True Romance and Se7en, whining and crying … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: 12 Monkeys (1995)"Read More »

    What I'm Playing: Atari Flashback X Deluxe

    AT Games Atari Flashback X Modern videogames suck. Let's go back to the '70s & '80s forever! Ordered this for my birthday last month, I got screwed (but not charged) by a phony 'zon seller, then reordered. When it got here I discovered it doesn't have an HDMI cable in the box(!!! Some choice language … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: Atari Flashback X Deluxe"Read More »
  • Wizards Address the Orc Problem

    Wizards Address the Orc Problem

    Wizards of the Coast: Diversity and Dungeons & Dragons See also my recent post: The Thing About Orcs Nice to see this directly addressed. Obviously I still prefer my solution which was just to replace Orcs with a more sympathetic species, but WotC is a business with tight margins so they'll just do the minimum … Continue reading "Wizards Address the Orc Problem"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol

    What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol

    So back in 1989, Grant Morrison took over Doom Patrol, which had been around in various forms since 1963, the original genius in a wheelchair, deranged freak "students", fighting weird enemies and society, months before the X-Men. Except instead of having white kids (and later token Storm & Jubilee) stand in for racism with a … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Doom Patrol"Read More »
  • What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)

    What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)

    SaGa official site Yet another gachapon game based on a classic GameBoy and later Square Enix franchise (SaGa Frontier, etc). To a large extent, this is as basic, standard, zero innovation of a gacha phone game as I've ever seen. The characters are very pretty, there's some great character art, and then it goes into … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe (Saga RS)"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO

    What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO

    Available on the HoboMax. BMO, especially delusional BMO being a hero, is generally my favorite character of AT, even tho I skip all those awful Grables eps. So I was looking forward to this. Not happy about the result. No way to talk about this without spoilers: BMO and their potatoes are going to Mars. … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Adventure Time

    What I'm Watching: Adventure Time

    HoboMax has Adventure Time, and soon to have some spinoff specials "Distant Lands", so I watched seasons 8-10 which I hadn't previously seen, and I'm now rewatching 6-7 which I apparently don't remember at all. Who needs linear time? Season 8: Mostly episodic, often great adventure episodes. This is what I liked the show for … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Adventure Time"Read More »

    WWDC 2020 Liveblogging

    As posted on appdot.net: Apparently I'm watching all of WWDC on my phone, because it's the only current OS version device in my house, and of course a course table and video player only works with the absolute latest updates! F'shaw, like last year's OS could handle a scrolling table?! Or video streams?! Brings up … Continue reading "WWDC 2020 Liveblogging"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

    What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

    Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964): Both UFO cultists and cops agree, heat wave in winter and meteor showers are weird. A cop is assigned to bodyguard a princess from a small island under civil war. Said princess is contacted by an alien voice and told to jump from the plane, and she never even got … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster"Read More »
