  1. Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    FLGS has a job lot of Citadel painting handles so I got one. Nabbed a pair of DHL wizards and a weird GW shade while while I was at it. Because I have good impulse control.

    Ok what is the issue here? Billy found true love?

    Or not. Devices aren’t cooperating. Rest assured, painting is happening!

    Going to Get on soon, need to get out of my post-holiday slump...
  5. Happy Birthday Paradoxical Mouse

    Happy birthday!
  6. The Dark Age Of Super Heroes

    Young Justice did get renewed, at least. Season 3 is set to air late this year. Probably as a direct result of all the negative press as seen above.
  7. What's on TV?

    Just finished Star Trek: Deep Space Nine for the first time. Whoever said it got better around season 3 wasn’t kidding. Still, there were several moments I recalled from watching its original run before giving up on the show entirely. Apparently I made it all of three episodes back then.
  8. The Dark Age Of Super Heroes

    Wertham’s witch hunt also forced DC to introduce Batwoman and her sidekick Bat-Girl. That way they could say “see, Batman and Robin totally dig the ladies!” Bat-Girl was written out of the comics after a relatively short while, but Batwoman hung around until being retconned out of existence by Crisis on Infinite Earths. She was slightly reimagined and reintroduced following infinite Crisis and is still around today. Perhaps not ironically, this new Batwoman totally digs the ladies as well.

    Got a little box in the mail, didn’t think to check it right away. Turns out, it was my Hasslefree order from a month ago, along with some exotic UK sweets and three free minis! A happy surprise for an otherwise dour day.
  10. The Dark Age Of Super Heroes

    Mostly slightly less dark than this: The episode “The Demon’s Quest” is one of my favorite portrayals of the character, and one of the only good adaptations of Ra’s al-Ghul out there.

    The pipes are frozen in my kitchen. No sink and no dishwasher Luckily the toilets work fine still. Edit: the toilets are not in the kitchen, for clarification.
  12. House Figmentius Common Room, All Are Welcome

    I’m curious to know what happened that made the plastics industry strike back?
  13. Intellectual Property Rights and Star Trek

    ST:TOS was produced by Desilu. Desilu was purchased (I believe during the show’s run) by Gulf + Western, then owners of Paramount Pictures, and renamed Paramount Television. Stuff got reorganized and sold off, but Paramount Pictures (who make the movies) and Paramount Television remained with the same company all the way through being bought by CBS and then Viacom’s ownership. Then things get weird. Viacom and CBS split in 2005, with Viacom becoming CBS and the rest becoming a new Viacom. This new Viacom ended up with Paramount Pictures and CBS with the television division. Anything made originally for the reboot movies is not necessarily available for use in television shows and vice versa from Discovery or any subsequent series. To make matters worse, the merchandising rights are split between (at least) the two companies. Because that’s where the money is. Klingons are Klingons though, since they appeared on TV first there shouldn’t be a problem with turtle-faced Klingons on TV, that’s probably just some unfortunate writer’s room decision making.
  14. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Pretty sure it was meant to border on comical in 1988 as well, if only to emphasize the ineptitude of the film’s LAPD (see also Deputy Chief of Police Dwayne T. Robinson and the shot where a SWAT team member runs in to a thorny bush and says “ow!”). At least, I remember finding it rather comical back then...

    Kidlets let the household sleep in until 7am this year, yay.
