  1. A conference will be taking me to Las Vegas next month. Does anyone know of any good games stores or comic book shops I should visit while there?
  2. Some months ago I was tooling around on the Center for Disease Control website (as I'm wont to do, because the NSA doesn't have enough dirt on me already) and I got inspired to write a blog post about how Batman probably has rabies, statistically speaking. This accusation against Batman was pretty successful, and sparked some good conversations. So naturally, I did it again, explaining why Dracula has syphilis, which is a pretty well known allegory, since Bram Stoker showed several signs of the disease before he died. Last week I posted about how Catwoman has Toxoplasmosis, a parasite that gets transmitted from cats to human. And now...I'm stumped. I've been beating my brain for other heroes, fiction characters, or movie protagonists, and all I can come up with are psychological ailments. Which I view as a cheap shot, because everyone has something wrong in the head. Anyway, any suggestions would be helpful. You can read the Catwoman thing below, which also has links to Batman and Dracula. Figured I'd ask the most knowledgeable nerds I know. Thanks all! (P.S. if we're not allowed to post article links, I'll totally remove it.) http://masksofmonsters.wordpress.com/2014/11/08/catwoman-has-toxoplasmosis/
  3. Haven't seen any of the other Marvel movies ... ummm, ever, but I am an *old* fan of the comics, so I could watch it without irritating my kids by asking who the heck people were and what was going on, 'cause it was dead obvious from looking at them even if they never mentioned, say, Volstagg's name once the whole time. I did like that no part of the nine worlds was racially monocultural, not even the elves. It was a rip-roaring fun movie, even if they gave the Asgardians Star Wars-like tech (shouldn't they have had cooler developed magic instead?). I always found Malekith a little ridiculous, but the movie and Christopher Eccleston made him magnificently scary. The visuals were nicely designed, I thought. Svartalfheim's sun looked convincingly black, for mindflayer and Spelljammer fans. I liked the Celtic knotwork force fields. All the Asgardians had great hair, fabulous hair, amazing hair, unbelievable hair. Their armor was cool too. The svartalfs had the creepiest helms, all serene faces and big dark eyes. I will say, it was one of the least English films set in England I have seen since Angela Lansbury did a Miss Marple, and this film didn't even have the excuse of being filmed in America. There were more British accents in Asgard than in London. Anyone who does not sit through the entire movie credits is a philistine anyway, but virtue is well rewarded here.
  4. My husband printed this one out for me. He knows me so well. http://www.dorktower.com/2013/03/19/trajanic-tragics-dork-tower-19-03-13/
