Gaming stuff

Haven't been too busy this week. Just lazy.

I am going to have to replace my Palm keyboard, though. It just keeps futzing out entirely on certain keys. It's very hard to type on it for more than a minute or two at a time. Just to save myself time and money on shipping, I'll see if I can grab one at Best Buy this weekend.

I've been meaning to post this, as well, something a friend shared on his LJ earlier this week. There really isn't anything I can say about it that isn't covered by the link, so I won't.

In unrelated news, you know a good sign that a movie is complete and utter bullshit (as opposed to just 'the usual bullshit')? When you see it listed on Commentary Tracks of the Damned and never heard about it to begin with.

Although I do have a system for spotting piece of shit movies that generally works pretty well... I generally don't put a lot of faith in professional movie critics. But if the only positive reviews come from some network affiliate in the middle of Kansas or something (especially if there are multiple quotes from the same review involved), then it's probably a piece of crap. Every now and again you get a good movie that's like that, but the system has pretty much improved my general moviegoing experience.

As a side-note, I have added as an addendum to this system that includes "websites I've never heard of that are probably just some jackass' blog" as a source for crap reviews.

Well, that's it for the moment, I think. I'll catch you folks later.

Ah, I wish I could make it to L5R Worlds this year... I mean, I got an invitation and everything (presumably because of the whole thing where I applied to get on the Story Team), but it's in Europe. And even if I'd had time to get a passport when I received in the invitation, I couldn't afford it any way. Oh well...

Next year I'm probably going to skip Origins and just hit Gen Con, thus I should be able to make it to next year's... when I won't have an invite. Dammit.

Anyhow, before I sign off for now, I wish to share this with you... this is what police stations in D&D must really be like.
