  1. GW to re-release Necromunda!

    From what I'm seein', they'd bring back Zoats if they thought it could bolster their bottom line about now.
  2. Painting with cheap craft paint

    Well, there's cheap paint, and then there's CRAPPY cheap paint. Most retailers carry both.

  4. Wizards, by Ralph Bakshi

    Um, yeah... I have the Rankin/Bass Hobbit and Return Of The King. Only thing messed up about them of which I am aware is the voice cast of ROTK, which is the same as many animated cartoons of the eighties, which becomes sort of painful during the Battle Of Pellenor Fields, where if you close your eyes, it sounds like the casts of Super Friends and Scooby Doo battling Starscream and Cobra Commander. Aside from that, messed up how? Wizards' visual style was lifted to some extent from Cobalt 60, by Vaughn Bode. The character of Necron 99/Peace was directly based on the same character, and Elinore looks much like any Bode Babe in anything Bode ever drew. I first saw the movie at a midnight showing somewhere around 1980, and loved it. Since then, I've noted a few cracks and peeling paint spots... the priests' comedy routine goes on too long, and whenever Susan Tyrell starts narrating, they quit using animation and start showing still storyboard scenes, apparently to save money, a trick they repeat whenever they show the Elf army waiting. That, and the extremely annoying trick of taking stock footage and rotoscoping animation over it, a trick they used for every shot of orcs in Bakshi's LOTR. On the other hand, the "They've Killed Fritz!" scene remains an immortal classic, and whenever Bakshi can be bothered (or afford) to do actual original animation, it borders on brilliance. The character of Larry has popped up in three separate RPG campaigns I've run over the years; I have often felt that the sincerest form of flattery is plagiarism, at least as far as RPGs are concerned. Larry and Weehawk share a moment. EDIT: One of the funnier moments in one of those campaigns was when a player's girlfriend joined the game. It was her first RPG experience. She was tentative, but rather enjoyed the experience. And then Larry appeared out of nowhere, complete with miniature kitbashed from a lizardman and a short legged dinosaur toy, with a diaper to hide the join. Larry promptly decided that she was his mother...
  5. I aim to be there this time. Precisely WHEN is unclear, but I'll be there.
  6. I was about to take exception to you, there, up until "...but fun." Yes. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is indeed a fun dumb movie; I put it in the same universe as Van Helsing, as it has the same kind of energetic brain damagedness. You CAN'T take it seriously. But if you don't, it's a splendid ride. The original Wicker Man is indeed a classic. Only complaint I have with it is that it lacks the punch on the second viewing, since you know what's coming...
  7. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Ron Jeremy minored in theatre and has a Master's in Special Education. It was his fallback position if his actual career didn't work out.

    Seems like when you're tryin' to make a presence at all the major cons, steam trunks with your logo on them are kind of a necessity. Wid little rolly wheels and they can be put in position and deployed in minutes, and in OTHER minutes, sealed, locked, and secured in place. Kind of a no brainer, really.
  9. Ain't No Such Thang

    Yes. Cowboys are quite conscious of giggleberry placement when in the saddle.
  10. Occasionally I indulge in yesterday's cold pizza for breakfast. It's been a favourite of mine since college. Another is Egg Foo Breakfast. To make it, dump last night's Chinese takeout into a skillet, and crack one or two fresh eggs over it. When the eggs are scrambled, it's done.
  11. Happy Birthday MissMelons !!!

    Have a grand and glorious!

  13. Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder Kickstarter (Live)

    How you get to backer kit?
  14. I have now watched Megamind twice. It has the distinction of being only one of two movies that had Will Ferrell in them that I liked. While it's funny... particularly as a fan of mad scientists in general... I have concluded that Metro City is doomed at some point beyond the end credits. Megamind is an idiot. GREAT soundtrack, though.
  15. The Marvel Thor movies are fairly faithful to the character as envisioned by Jack Kirby... who knew better. Kirby was quite familiar with Norse mythology, and reimagined the character as Science Fiction Thor. His original "Tales Of Asgard" comics are jaw droppers, but still lots of fun. As long as you're not expecting any kind of faithfulness to the actual mythos. I find it difficult to imagine Tom Hiddleston giving birth to the Fenris Wolf, for that matter. Just classify it as "two different Thors," and you will be fine. Although I do wish Kirby could have lived to see the Thor movies. It's probably too much to expect that he would have got PAID for them...
