A Weekend Roundup
But the most important thing we saw was a very tall dad and his very small son dressed as spot-on Dumbledore and Harry. When we passed by, Harry looked sad and Dumbledore reached down and softly said, "You want a pretzel? Let's get you a pretzel."
Anyway, here's some stuff I'm into this month:
- Some fans made a Hawkeye short film based on the Fraction/Aja comics and it is everything I wish was in the movies. I didn't realize just how bad movie Hawkeye is until I read the Fraction/Aja comics, which are amazing. Hawkguy + Hawkeye + Pizza Dog forever.
- Speaking of Marvel actors (kind of?), some guy in Hong Kong has built a Scarlett Johansson robot. For me, it's just a physical example of the way women (or anyone who isn't a man) are regarded in the tech world. As someone very interested in gender and tech, I have a lot of thoughts and feelings and opinions about this.
- This is how you play Skyrim. (Sidenote: has anyone else tried to murder Barbas? Can I kill him eventually? I don't care about the other quests anymore. I just want to murder that dog.)
- After becoming obsessed with Campaign, I went looking for other actual play podcasts and here's my new favorite: The Adventure Zone. Three brothers (the McElroys if you're familiar) and their dad play 5th edition D&D.
- Speaking of the McElroys: MONSTER FACTORY. Hello metal husband.
- Things I have mistaken for a feeling over the years
Hey I was wondering where you guys went .. And I finally read through your last post .. about the Overhaul on the blog and feedback. I think the blog is great but it's hard to be motivated to post when you don't. So what is it that you are looking to do?? Any chance you'd want to collaborate on The Sometimes Serious Blog? I know you aren't a 30 something but we could make an exception for you ;) ... Anyway - I look forward to hearing what you think you are going to do with this blog :)ReplyDelete
