Adventures In Tactical Failure

Here's a beautiful thing that seriously just happened in Starscape.   ->Discover a Ragnarok-proofed bunker on a recently-defeated enemy's planet. ->Manage to break into the bunker. ->Tick off heavily armored security drones, who start shooting at you. ->Throw a grenade at them. You're in the bunker. They're in the bunker. The grenade's in the bunker.   This is now you.

Clue

Rather a big fan of the movie Clue, but I've got strong opinions on the endings shown. Now, I understand it's meant to be truly ambiguous and, really, impossible to discern which is really the ending (the bit where it says one of them really is the real ending can be safely placed in the same category as communism, they're all equally right and wrong), but the third one, while entertaining, didn't convince me. For one thing, "Mr. Body"s motive for bringing them all there if he really is Mr. Body

"traditional" Christmas Music

It may or may not be a well-known fact that I despise rather a lot of Christmas music. Songs about Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Commie-Faced Reindeer, and all the rest never really did much for me. Maybe it's because I've heard the same batch of songs performed by either dead people or dead careers for my entire life, but the whole thing seems tired, unartistic, and, oh my I finally get to use this word, hackneyed.   This is not to say that I hate all Christmas music - not by a long shot. No,

Technology Highlight - Tesla Electric Roadster + Solar Panels + Wind Turbine

Today, I'm going to do a one-off feature - my "Premier" Membership runs out on the 28th, and I'm undecided on the matter of actually buying it when that happens.   The purpose of this Tech Highlight is to point out the very real possibility of practical electric vehicles. The Tesla Roadster takes approx. 3.5 hours to charge, and, on a full charge, can go for about 245 miles - not too shabby, considering that other electric cars can take about 20 hours to charge and still don't go as far as the T

Musician Spotlight - Tim Curry

I've finished my exams for the semester, and to celebrate, it's time for this month's Musician Spotlight. This month, I'd like to start things off with a clarification of the term "winning."   Winning does not look like this. This is what torpedoing your career and ruining your life looks like. That is not the face of a victorious man, in any sense of the word.   This is what winning looks like. If you want a slightly more accurate version, look up the videos of one of the songs from his album

Syrrinx Tech Box

Since Xom (or, if you like, King of Shadows, though that only applies to shadows inside of time, so I'm quite out of his jurisdiction) is deathly allergic to blogs, I'm going to be helpful and post the Syrrinx tech he's provided specs on in this blog entry.   SHIPS Class Name: Elemental Class Size: Fighter Class Function And Description: Space Superiority Fighter, meant to destroy enemy fighters and bombers, and provide close support to Syrrinx Ground Troops. Trans Atmospheric. Class Weapons: Th

Stonehenge

This is the most awesomely ridiculous ridiculously awesome song ever.   Also, surprise mandolin. Can't get by without surprising somebody with a mandolin in your hand, you know?

Starscape Profile/tech Box

'Ello. This is where I'll be dumping all of my stuff for the COTRPG Starscape, which presently promises to bloom into a massive war with everyone annihilating everybody.   In the interim, I'll kick things off with the information this entry is for.   Main Species Profile Species Name: Diemawr Description: -Physical: The Diemawr are a physically powerful race, and their somewhat brutish appearance can be off-putting to some. Despite this, they are a very dexterous race, with their hands bearing f

Musician Highlight - Scott Joplin

Every month, I've decided, I'm going to put a shiny little spotlight on a specific musician, generally one who also composes (or composed, I've nothing against dead guys), give a brief description of them, and recommend a small sampling of their work for curious listeners to get started on.   This month, it's the father of ragtime, Scott Joplin.   Scott Joplin is widely considered to be one of the most important composers of ragtime, and, indeed, the innovator that basically created ragtime.

First Ever Contest - Conceptual Drawing

This is it.   The thing absolutely none of you were waiting for. The thing even I wasn't waiting for.   Because I had no idea it was happening until literally five minutes ago.   Also because I'm a little slow up top.   But yeah.   The First Ever Madman-With-A-Box Drawing Contest, to be held from this point onward at no specific time interval.   Basic Idea: Combine two animals that should never be combined, in a way that makes it clear that yes, they totally should be combined. For examp
