Happened to notice that PDFs of the entire run of first edition the Twilight:2000 role playing game are available for only $40 at RPGNow. For five years the armies of the world have fought back and forth across Europe. Three years ago the missiles started flying. Most countries were hit hard in the nuclear exchange, […]

Was in a rush to download an audiobook to listen to and basically chose this one at random. I haven’t reached the end yet, but I can already give it a Murdoc recommendation. It’s not really “heavy” or “deep” or “hard” SF, but it’s got a lot of good stuff and most of the military/gun […]
Just caught an episode of this on HBO at the hotel we’re staying at. Nice, because we don’t get HBO at home. The Marines on Guadalcanal. Excellent. Very much excellent.

The promo for The Night the Reindeer Died […]
Saw it yesterday (regular theater 3D version, not IMAX) and thought it was excellent. Think Dances with Wolves with aliens instead of Indians. The animation was excellent (astounding, really) except for a couple of scenes where characters are climbing something. I don’t know what it is about CGI effects and climbing. They almost always look […]
