  1. Technically not a movie, but I saw the final performance of this year's Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare on the Common: Richard III. R3 is Shakespeare's first great comedy and it was wonderfully acted. There's a little bit of an echo as the sound system reverberates off the townhouses of Beacon Hill, which made things extra spooky during the Ghostly Visitation scene.
  2. Salt and Pepper, generally. Hot sauce if it's a soup that needs enhottening. Last night's conversation featured a running gag from an episode of a show that I used to watch: "The man wrote 37 plays, each more brilliant than the last. Except for Pericles."
  3. I already have a Supervillain Name, I am the Cheesemaster. Oddly, my Weather Control abilities have nothing to do with it.
  4. Normally I don't have much love for Sophie, but clearly she belongs on the "Tails" side of the coin, The reaper skull can be on the obverse, with the spines in annulo around the edge of the coin and some nice motto the combines the Reaper Houses' ideals.
  5. I still haven't given up on "President" and "Rock Star", but I think I'll actually go with "Toy Designer for Hasbro" since that's really what I should have been going for in college what with my Transformersobsession.
  6. William Sanderson played J.F. Sebastian, an engineer who builds artificial workers called Replicants in Blade Runner. William Sanderson played Dr. Karl Rossum, an engineer who builds artificial workers called Duplicants in Batman: The Animated Series. R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) is a play about engineers who build artificial workers called Robots and is the origin of the term.
  7. It's a very dynamic greybeard. Like he remembers to drink his prune juice.
  8. If Stargate SG-1 has taught me anything, you can never have too many Beta sites.
  9. Let's raise a glass for Winston, who took an arrow to the knee.
  10. Collaborating with friends on a joint project. I rolled my electronic d6 and nothing happened, but when I whacked it into the table, it "rolled" a 1. Its batteries are dying, though, so I may have to retire it from its place in my backpack.
  11. Yes. No. I used to have a Boy Scout challenge coin when I was a wee tyke.
  12. Ditto. Also went to an Action Double-Feature at the Drive-in. We saw Mission Impossible: Fallout, which was okay, but I couldn't tell how many love interests Ethan Hunt had until the Third Act because they looked identical and the helicopter sequence was so long it actually got boring. The second movie was Skyscraper, which wasn't Dwanye's best work, but I really liked the ways his prosthetic leg was a tool that he used for all manner of things besides walking and falling.
  13. They got Toby Maguire to play Spider-Man and Chris Evans to play Captain America. There's no way I can top these three.
  14. I'd focus on healing and sustaining magic. Like a druid but with pants.
  15. Benjamin Franklin's Song by the Decemberists. My High School Fight Song! "The Crushing Silence", a collaboration of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington recorded shortly before their suicides. Honorable Mention: "The Android's Nightmare" by John Scalzi, sequel to one of his weirder novels. Heroic Ork PC-types
  16. I got Claudia Christian's Autograph at a Con once. Then I bought a B5CCG Earth Alliance Starter Deck and got her autograph again. She remembered me. I'm speculating a little here, but Imma go with The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension The Rocky Horror Picture Show Steven Universe: The Movie.
  17. I've been thinking about this one a lot and Imma have to disagree. Trunk access is almost always my primary concern with parking, which is why I almost always nose in. I do happily back in when I don't need trunk access. And of course, I love pull-throughs, which are the best of both worlds: nose in, nose out.
  18. There are many expansion maps, some of which have funky rules. My favorites are Japan and Australia. My advice for avoiding tunnel vision is to avoid buying too many power plants and to avoid paying too much for power plants.
  19. Pockets/Purse: sunglasses, inhaler, wallet, cell phone, keys Backpack: Kindle, charge-a-ma-kindle, charge-a-ma-phone, power strip, kitten full of pencils, pens, scrap paper, engineering notebook, wet erase markers, dry erase markers, emergency d6s, umbrella.
  20. JFK is often blamed for this, as he allegedly went hatless at his inauguration, but the decline of hats was already well underway by then and he actually did wear a top hat through much of the inauguration festivities.
  21. I generally suck at chores. My parents would constantly fight over cleaning the house and threaten to throw out each other's junk piles. I like washing the dishes, though.
  22. I'm a fantastic event planner. With asthma.
  23. Glass can hold a monomolecular edge. Surgeons use obsidian scalpels for the most delicate surgeries and glass knives are used to slice samples for transmission electron microscopy.
  24. Saw Ocean's 8 last night. Better than 12, not quite as good as 13. It actually needed a few more monkeywrenches thrown into the plan so we could see them bust out their problem-solving skills some more.
