Best. Global. Epidemic. Ever.

She's done it for Troy, Van Helsing, and others, and made it onto BoingBoing, and now she's doing it for our latest disaster movie.

The Day After Tomorrow in Fifteen Minutes

Burn It track listing

As I mentioned before, I made more than one CD. But in looking back now, I realize it will likely seem that I'm a huge Eagles, Dolly Parton, and Elton John fan, but that's not quite true. I was trying for the unique takes on songs, and these artists had the most covers like that.

I mailed the CDs out on Saturday, media mail, so it may take a few more days for them to get to everyone. Ginger, I'll bring your CDs to TBR.

In the cut, you'll find the track listing for both CDs.

Alton Brown interviewed in Wired

A good interview with St. Alton is located at Wired online.

It's a Jack/Nikki kind of TBR

My TBR schedule:

Slot 1: Tall Tales of Pattern and Shadow (Jack Gulick)
Slot 2: If You Can't Take the Heat (Michael Curry and Jennifer Jackson)
Slot 3: Firescape (Nicole Quinn)
Slot 4: My Life With Corwin (Jack Gulick)
Slot 5: Nine Babes in Amber (Nicole & DJ Quinn)

Lou and I have the first two games together, then nothing else for the rest of the Con. But he's having a very Michael Curry TBR.

Can I have it NOW?

Especially seeing as I'm playing Aeryn in Firescape at The Black Road...

Rivendell for sale!

Once upon a time, the members of the RPGames forum on Compuserve had gatherings in the northeastern United States (and Toronto!). We'd go to each other's houses, and sit and game and chat and watch laserdiscs/videos and listen to music and chat some more. All weekend long.

At the last one at the house I lived in in Portsmouth, it was called Rivendell. Likely because of it's large size and ability to accommodate everyone, including some in their own rooms.

I moved out on my own, and my mother sold Rivendell a few years later. We were the first family to own it. And now the second family to own it have put it up for sale.

I need some better exterior pictures than that. But that's the house I grew up in. It's what I considered my home for most of my life. If I had the money, I'd buy it, just to have it. But as you can see, it's going for a bit more than the average vamily can afford these days. Almost twice as much as my mother sold it for lo those years ago, IIRC.

Ah, nostalgia.

The Chronicles of Riddick

I'll move the main review into the extended entry, to avoid spoilers. But here's the one line review.

This movie was completely adequate. Average. Nothing special.

In Memoriam...

I regret to inform you all that I have passed on.

We regret to announce the untimely death of Julia, who on the 3rd of October of this year was meticulously vaporized by the next-door neighbor. This unfortunate incident occurred in a sewer pipe somewhere on Interstate 52. The deceased was reported to have shouted "I should have listened to my horoscope!" just before expiring. Julia is survived by several houseplants. Funeral services will be held the 5th of next month.

From here.

Help with Swing in PoA

In PoA, Remus Lupin has a wonderful love of swing music. He plays one song during the boggart DADA scene, and he also has some background music playing in his office at the end.

Google has provided me with "Sing Sing Sing" by Glenn Miller (or maybe Benny Goodman, or maybe Swing Swing Swing?) for the DADA class, but I'm still stumped when he's talking to Harry at the end.

If only my father were still alive, I'm sure he'd recognize it right off the bat.

And before you ask, NO, it's not in the credits or on the soundtrack.

Good luck!

I just found out that one of my co-workers is a finalist in the Pillsbury Bake-Off for this year. Her recipe is here, and I must say, it looks yummy!

Best of luck, Sherri!

Gmail Goodness

I've got more invites. Does anyone who reads my blog want a gmail invite?

Some Assumptions about Fantasy

A good speech, even though she calls it "grunting." Amusedly so, but still, I wish I could grunt as eloquently as she does.

Just like "normal" people

Some, but not all, of the list of occupations, arranged alphabetically, listed on gay marriage applicant licenses in Massachusetts.

No X and no Z jobs, alas.

Starting over, all over again

Jack, I've converted. All the stats are now at zero, but all the teams have been moved. I don't know if they'll move the old rresults over or not. We'll see.

TBR 2004

Much fun was had at this year's convention, kudos and thanks to the Con Committee and helpers. The con may have been the biggest one yet, but it was still intimate and one of the best yet. Even if I didn't play a traditional Amber game all weekend.

Maybe next year, we can the "official" social hour, though? Or just order a bunch of pizzas from whatever place delivers, or a few huge party subs? I shudder to think how much pasta salad may still be left over...

Game quotes beneath the cut.
