Tree-hugger



This critter looks like he would be right at home in Zothique, Planet Algol, or Gamma Terra. Just needs some fleshing out.

"Don't Mention The Paciific War"

Last night, my wife took my nine year old son, himself a budding history buff, to our favorite Japanese restaurant. He decided it was the perfect time to educate his mom about Pearl Harbor. Fortunately, she got him to change the subject before his lecture got to Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

The tale reminded me of this:

Don't You Forget About John Hughes

I often tell folks that my two favorite directors* are the Two Johns: Milius and Hughes.

Milius presented the life I aspired to. Hughes presented the life I lived. In other words, I wanted to be Conan or a Wolverine I was Farmer Ted and Ducky Dale.

Gallery 1988 is having a John Hughes tribute show, and one of my favorite blogging artists has produced an homage to Weird Science. Check it out: Montygog's Art-O-Rama!: I want her to aerobicize...



*-aside from Sam Peckinpah, that is.

Topographical Tuesday Revisited ... Briefly


Back when I was blogging regularly, I had a weekly feature called Topographic Tuesday." Each week, I would post a map of a fictional place, whether it was China Mieville's New Crobuzan or Mary Tyler Moore's t.v. apartment.

Now, that torch has been handed off to Comic Book Cartography. CBC has maps of Kamandi's Earth A.D. (as seen in this post), the Baxter Building, SHIELD headquarters, and Pogo's swamp.

An Action Typist on Planet Algol

PLANET ALGOL is the currently at the top of my list of "Campaigns I Wish I Were Playing In." With the possible exception of the Flagons & Dragons Gamma World game, that is.

Just take a look at the latest offering at Planet Algol: a bit of brainstorming of the pulp sword & sorcery sort that makes me covetous.

Back when my wife and I were newlyweds, X-Files was our show. We watched religiously. I haven't seen an episode in years. Back when FX would run marathons, I would revisit my favorite episodes: "Home," "Jose Chung," the baseball episode, etc.

But my favorite, I haven't seen since it originally airred. Eye of Polyphemus recaps here : Eye of Polyphemus: X-Files--"Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man"
