Shut Up and Take Our Money: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer #2

CrashedDestroyerCrop

Pictured: A crashed X-Wing in the foreground, and a crashed Imperial Star Destroyer in the background. Not pictured: My childhood, crying out in joy.

What else is there to say?  I think it’s safe to say that it took someone like J.J. Abrams, a kid who grew up loving Star Wars, to understand what made it fun.  We’ve been disappointed before, (Oh how we’ve been disappointed!) but this feels different.

Watch:

From the Trailer:

VaderHelmetCrop

Vader is having a bad day.

LukeHandCrop

Luke, going all retro with the hand.

KyloCrop

Kylo Ren, looking extra bad ass.

Chewie...we're home.

GLRL Episode 7: “Dune” (1984) with Marc R.

GreenLightRedLightLogo2Big

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you gave David Lynch a large budget and asked him to direct a Sci-Fi epic co-starring a mostly naked Sting, wonder no longer!  In 1984, Lynch directed Dune, a movie that took over a decade, and several aborted attempts, to produce.  Based on the classic Frank Herbert penned Sci-Fi novel of the same name, Dune turned out to be such a mess, Lynch has disowned it.  So, of course, we had to watch it, joined by my improv buddy Marc R.  Sorry in advance, and remember: Walk without rhythm, and you won’t attract the worm!

Victory Over the Trolls

eff-logo-name-rgb

Our friends at the EFF have scored a major victory for podcasters against the patent trolls.

San Francisco – The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) invalided key claims in the so-called “podcasting patent” today after a petition for review from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)—a decision that significantly curtails the ability of a patent troll to threaten podcasters big and small.

Good news for podcast fans everywhere.

Jon Snow Knows Nuffin About Dinner Parties

We all love Jon Snow. My household is solidly pro-Stark and pro-Targaryen, and we’re looking forward to the inevitable alliance as Ice and Fire are united. That being said, Jon Snow sucks at small talk. Like, really, really sucks. A fact that Seth Meyers learned the hard way.

I Did a Thing! Voice Acting on “Life is a Hideous Thing”

podcast-head_03

If you haven’t already had enough of the sound of my voice, I did some voice acting for former Cradle of Filth bassist Dave Pybus! It’s a short bit during the intro of his new podcast Life is a Hideous Thing. I play both sides of a conversation between an astronaut and NASA.

The podcast itself is an interesting conversation with renowned fantasy & D&D artist Brom, so it’s right up our alley.

If you ever wanted to hear me talking to myself in a more structured manner than I normally talk to myself, check it out!

I come in at about (1:11) of Episode 5.

S2E12 – The Ravenswood Zombie Outbreak Pt 6: Does it Smell Like a Penis is Cooking in a Pot?

When last we left our heroes, Toots was about to make a death saving throw, having been put down by some nasty zombies.  We pick up right were we left of, with the result of that roll.  I’m tired and can’t come up with anything more interesting to say about this episode, but trust me, it’s a fun one.

Indiana May Lose Gen Con, a $50 Million Economic Impact, Due to “Religious Freedom” Law

There are times when we’re really ashamed to be based in Indiana, and those times have come more frequently than they used to, and now there’s this (via the Indy Star):

The organizers of Gen Con, the city’s largest convention in attendance and economic impact, are threatening to move the event elsewhere if Gov. Mike Pence signs controversial religious freedom legislation that could allow business owners to refuse services to same-sex couples.

One of the largest gaming conventions, and one of the best places to play D&D or Pathfinder (I’ve both played and run games at GenCon for some years now), is considering leaving our state, and taking the 50 million dollars in revenue it generates somewhere else.  It would be a huge disappointment to myself and many other Hoosier gamers if we lost this convention, but I support their efforts to ensure all of their attendees will be treated with respect by their host communities.
