Thanksgiving Prayer Video

I posted the text of this a couple years back, but there's video for it on YouTube now. I'm not as down about this country's future as I was back then, but there's still a long way to go.

RIP, Uncle Bill

On a more positive note, has the famous Thanksgiving episode of WKRP in Cincinnati.

Pay attention, Rod ...

... cause this is how not to throw a can like a girl.

And they're fucking French on top of it!

You are too gay.

Simon Pegg hates fast zombies

Here's an interesting article from the Guardian from Simon Pegg on why the undead should never be allowed to run. Although it seems like a bit of fanboy wankery, he makes some salient points.

Check it out.

Wassup 2008

For the few of us that are old enough to remember this, it's an update of the famous Budweiser "Wassup" commercial from circa 2000. Man, it's been a while...

Sorry, Rod.

Looks like someone beat you to the punch.

James Gunn's PG Porn

OK, so James Gunn's PG Porn really isn't safe for work, but it isn't safe for work in the way that you might think it would be. Freakin' funny as hell; check it out.

Special Delivery for Rod!

This is awesomely tasteless. Especially the visual nod to a certain Spielberg film.

Best Book...Evar!

Seriously, check it out. It's a fucking mindjob of a novel.

Not like it's a secret...

I'm sure everyone knows this by now, but I'll make formalities of it and announce that I am indeed (finally) moving. The house is a duplex on Marrano Pkwy. in Cheektowaga, basically near the intersection of French and Transit. The official date we take possession is October 1st, so we should be in and set up by the 15th once everything's done...we hope. It is indeed an awesome house.

Needless to say, an obligatory game night will occur. I will keep y'all posted.

And just because I don't want to leave you guys empty handed, here's Al Pacino doing what he does best.

So THIS is what happens?

Since I never actually finished the original Super Mario Bros., I was quite surprised to see the ending.

Or at least, this is how it should have ended.

If you're not following Warren Ellis on Twitter, you really need to do so right fucking now! He's a mad insane, but always entertaining, genius. Check out a recent exchange (Brian, you're gonna love this):

Alt Text: Killjoy Cooking With the Dungeons & Dragons Crowd

If cookbook fans talked about cooking the way that RPG fans talk about gaming, it would sound mysteriously like Alt Text: Killjoy Cooking With the Dungeons & Dragons Crowd.

"Hizzona" has passed on

The Buffalo News: Home: Former Mayor James D. Griffin dies at 78 in Orchard Park nursing home
Might not mean much to anyone who didn't grow up in Buffalo, but Jimmy Griffin was an indelible part of mine and many others' childhood. Who can forget his immortal advice to a city ravaged by winter storms in 1985:

Stay inside, grab a six-pack and watch a good football game.
There was ever only one mayor of Buffalo. RIP, Jimmy

Robert Asprin, RIP

Just found out that Bob Asprin, author of the Myth Adventures series, recently passed away:

On May 22, 2008, Bob passed away quietly in his home in New Orleans, LA. He had been in good spirits and working on several new projects, and was set to be the Guest of Honor at a major science fiction convention that very weekend. He is survived by his mother, his sister, his daughter and his son, and his cat, Princess, not to mention countless friends and fans and numerous legendary fictional characters.

He will be greatly missed.
Man, he was one of my favorites; I think I've read just about everything he's ever written. Not only was he known for the Myth series, he also edited the early Thieves' World shared world anthologies, and was a gamer and SCAdian to boot ("Yang the Nauseating").

He will be missed.

Ah, songs from forgotten days gone by....

Don't know who's responsible for this, but someone has posted a page of Songs by Tom Lehrer. Who, you might ask? Probably one of the funniest, smartest, and cleverest songwriters of the 20th century. He's like a straighter and geekier Cole Porter. Check out my favorites, "The Masochism Tango" and "Poisoning Pigeons In The Park".

"Tick, tock, tick, tock ... hypnotic, isn't it?"

"Oh, the ... turtality..."

Here's a clip from a super-low budget Russian horror flick featuring a giant, mutated turtle attacking a city. Friend to all children, he ain't ....

"Oh, no, the turtle is attacking! Walk away at a brisk pace!"

Where was this when we were kids?!

Eight Virginia Cub Scouts get a gaming all-nighter as a reward for earning Webelos certification. Boys claim that it still doesn't take the sting out of being "We-blows".

Seriously, if this had been an option, I would have stayed in the damn Boy Scouts.

Just what we need, gamer merit badges. Oh, wait, we have those, they're called Achievements ... ;)

So, I want to get more than one take...

But if I hit someone in the head with an axe, I am pretty sure they wont let me do it again.

So I make a fake axe. I'ma cut the blade off where it is supposed to be buried in the head. I am going to "age" the real axe, then paint the fake to match.

Upcoming Convention Schedule

I know Brian and Tom asked about these, so I figured I'd post the dates for as many game conventions as I'm aware of this year, as well as which ones I'm planning on attending. Feel free to post any other events that should be included:

  • SimCon: March 27 - March 30. I've signed up to run two events on that Saturday.
  • UBCon: April 11-13. I'm planning on running two events here. We'll see how well attended they are.
  • Western New York Savages: April 19. This is being put together by some guys out of Rochester and being held at SUNY Geneseo. Not sure yet how good the turn-out will be, but we'll see.
  • Origins: June 25 - June 29. Can't go to this one; my sister's getting married that weekend ... more's the pity.
  • GenCon: August 14 - 17. The big one; wouldn't miss this for the world!
  • Con on the Cob: October 2 - 5. Another one I wouldn't miss for anything; just too damn much fun.
More shows as I find out about them. I know that Rod mentioned a date for the Creep Show this year, but I don't remember it off-hand. I'm sure he'll put it up soon ...

TV Tropes is a web site dedicated to cataloging the various tropes and clich├ęs present in most modern media. I lost about an hour to it today. Be warned, it's a real time sink.
