‘Here It Goes Again.’

That’s one of the most flirt-with-danger music videos I’ve ever seen.

Here It Goes Again, OK Go

Tweet of the Day, The Eagles Are Going To The Superbowl edition.

Their fans are handling it well.

No, really.  This is classy, for Eagles fans. I mean, there’s even a 90% chance that that last guy is wearing pants.

Guess it has to be said: DON’T EAT DETERGENT PODS.

I let it slide, mostly, because I figured that the ‘Tide Pod Challenge’ was just young people messing around with older people’s heads. But apparently some damfool college student in Utah actually ate one of these things and had to go to the hospital.  So: stop doing that [expletive deleted].  The joke’s now officially gone on for too long.

Creature Seed: Warpex Cats.

So I saw this picture of Tom Baker being delightedly covered in kittens.

Warpex Cats – Google Docs

Warpex Cats

(felis catus gallifreyus, heinleinus, or ultharus)

 

These are all distinct species, although they are derived from the Canadian Foldex cat breed; no Warpex is interfertile with regular domestic house cats (or, indeed, another species of Warpex). All three Warpex species strongly resemble the Foldex, both in appearance and temperament. It can in fact be difficult to distinguish a Warpex from a Foldex, at least until the special abilities of the former manifest.

Patreon Microfiction: “A Rocky Start.”

“A Rocky Start” is, in its way, hopeful. Why is it that we assume that Good is the only one that can screw things up, after all?  Evil is just as capable of producing embarrassing congenital screw-ups, after all.

Patreon! Patreon! PA-TRE-ON!

‘The Dragonborn Comes.’

Finally this is in a form that I could purchase. And the extended version is even better.

So I’m trying to decide what the @washingcon In Nomine game will be.

Assuming, of course, that they sign off on me doing an In Nomine game there. Although I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t: I’ve run games for them in the last two cons, I’ve caused no drama, and my other game’s going to be GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, which will be a whole lot simpler to plot out. I figure that they won’t even blink an eye, honestly. (more…)

Movie of the Week: What We Do In The Shadows. (Free with Amazon Prime!)

What We Do In The Shadows” is a mockumentary about vampires that was made by Taika Waititi. I’ve wanted to see it ever since I watched Waititi make a no-fooling good Thor movie, and hey! It’s free with Amazon Prime! So I figured I’d let people know.

That’s pretty much it. I like it when it’s easy to cross something off of the list like this. It’s refreshingly straightforward.

Item Seed: Mortar Chucks.

Believe me: I’m as appalled as you’re about to be.

Mortar Chucks – Google Docs

 

Mortar Chucks

 

History does not record the name of the genetic mage who first conceived of the idea of converting the common woodchuck into an area-effect, indirect fire weapon.  History would rather like to find out that name, but the mage had apparently (and very wisely) decided to cover his, her, its, or their tracks. While Mortar Chucks are not quite death-penalty level necromancy, it’s hard to imagine how the things could have been designed and tested without drawing on advanced death magic lore — which is to say, necromancy that does rate the death penalty.

The straining-disbelief Siren trailer.

I have a weird issue with the Sirens TV show.
