      Some friends of ours rented a house for the weekend in Dallas to go to Dallas Fan Expo, and they invited us to stay. So we figured why not. We're leaving Thursday to spend the weekend at the con. Some very cool guests in attendance if you follow that link up there. Anyone else going to be there?


      In addition to the main thing of going to the con, we're doing other fun things. Thursday night we've got reservations at a Brazilian steakhouse, Texas de Brazil. MMmmmmm, meat. Friday night we've got tickets for the con's Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS event with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, and Michelle Gomez. Then Sunday evening we're seeing Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes live for Jay and Silent Bob Get Old. Our friends are also trying to convince us that after Jay and Bob we should accompany them to The Church, a club where they'll be having a big Steampunk/Sci-Fi ... thing. I dunno, live music, flashy lights, dancing, it's a thing, just not really my thing. So I may try to not do that part. The performer will be a guy called Voltaire who I've never heard of and who Wikipedia calls a "Dark Cabaret musician" and shows to be kind of scary looking, if somewhat dapper:

      Anyway, busy weekend. Should be fun though.

    • Pick a lamp

      3 years ago

      datalaughing Always Right

      Ok, people, I need your thoughts. The kids and I got Jennifer one of these lamps for Mother's Day (among other things), and I like hers enough that I want to get one for my side of the room as well. The problem is, this Etsy seller makes a lot of great designs, each in multiple colors, and I don't know which one to pick. So I am soliciting your thoughts. Here's the ones I'm looking at (note, all of these are from the Etsy shop Interstait figured I should include that tidbit to give appropriate credit):


      First, a couple of Stargate designs:

      il_570xN.888036410_nmeb.jpg

      This SG1 logo is cool, but I think if I go Stargate I'm leaning more toward this one:


      il_570xN.840884414_f320.jpg

      The detail looks very cool. And while I'm on this, I'll show you the different colors available:


      il_570xN.840661835_e39l.jpg

      Next a couple of Babylon 5 designs:


      il_570xN.878100643_9pkw.jpg

      I like this Psi Corps one a lot, but I don't want blue, and I'm not sure it really works in any other color. This is also why the United Federation of Planets symbol is not in the running. I feel like blue is the only way to go on that one.


      Then the B5 logo itself:


      il_570xN.838734947_1g9u.jpg

      Then there's a couple of SHIELD choices:


      il_570xN.812872469_l1ip.jpg

      Not sure whether I like this one better with or without the words. The Agents of SHIELD option has a lot less detail, but is very cool:


      il_570xN.812846185_5lrm.jpg

      And finally, COBRA!!


      il_570xN.841154657_nimz.jpg

      That one would have to be red of course. You just couldn't do that logo any other color. Not sure whether I love or hate the idea of a red lamp either.


      Designs, colors, it's all so hard. What do you guys think? Which design is the best? What color should it be?

    • I think Kickstarter has it in for me

      3 years ago

      datalaughing Always Right

      So back in December someone randomly linked me to the Kickstarter campaign for the game Secret Hitler. It had been at least six months since I'd looked at Kickstarter. I try not to look often because I know there's plenty of cool stuff out there, and I'll just end up spending money I shouldn't on stuff I won't see for a year. Still, the game looked pretty neat, and the price was decent. So I backed it. I ended up spending more than I intended because they introduced the snazzy wooden box somewhere during the campaign, but I figured what the hell, I don't do this often. I can splurge a tiny bit.


      Fast forward to March, and the Foglios are running their annual Kickstarter to print the new volume of Girl Genius. Well, I always back the Girl Genius kickstarter. It's my favorite webcomic, and I have all the previous volumes. So I can't very well not do it. Once again I ended up spending more than I meant to, but there were medals! I have the two medals from previous campaigns. So I needed these. I'm sure you understand. Still, it's a once a year thing. I can spend a little extra to support some awesome independent artists.


      Shortly after that campaign ended, though, Jim Butcher announced that a Dresden Files cooperative card game would start Kickstarting before the end of April (that started yesterday, btw), and if you guys have been paying any attention at all, you know that I didn't need more information than that. "A Dresden Files game, you say? How would you like me to pay for that? Cash? Check? Blood? You just say the word." It was a foregone conclusion. Within a week of that announcement, however, Brandon Sanderson announced that a boardgame based on his work, the game is called Mistborn: House War, would be hitting Kickstarter around the beginning of May. At this point I started to get a little worried. I love Mistborn almost as much as the Dresden Files, and reading the details of the game, it sounds really fun and well designed. I am intrigued and will not be able to resist. Might be a little tough on the wallet before all is said and done, but I'm sure I can make it work.


      That brings us to this morning, when Patrick Rothfuss, that slowly-writing magnificent maniacal sadist, announced a Kickstarter for the game Tak from his book The Wise Man's Fear. I thought, no, this is too much. Tak? I don't need that. Then I read his post about the history of this real world version of the game:

      "James told me he wanted to make Tak. He wanted to invent it. He wanted to build the whole thing from the ground up based on my descriptions from the book, and the unwritten stuff he knew I had hidden in my head.

      Again, I said no.

      “Why not?” he asked.

      “Tak is supposed to be my world’s version of Chess or Go or Mancala,” I said. “I can’t ask you to make a game like that. It’s like saying, ‘you know those games that have stood the test of time for hundreds or thousands of years? The best games ever? Do that, but in my world.’ So first off, it’s unreasonable for me to ask. Secondly, you can’t do it. No one can. And thirdly, if you did somehow manage to pull if off, nobody would give a shit. We’re living in the golden age of board games right now. Nobody cares about strategy games like chess anymore.”

      (If you haven’t already noticed, I can be a curmudgeonly fucker at times.)

      “Just let me try,” James said. “Let me take a run at it. If you hate what I come up with, we’ll never speak of it again.”

      So I told him, fine. Fine! Do it. Whatever. Jeez.

      So he asked me a bunch of questions. Then he went off and made a game. Then he brought it to me….

      Now you should know that I’m telling you this story so that you know where I was coming from on the subject of Tak. Simply said, I wasn’t eager to pursue it. I was the opposite of eager.

      And it wasn’t because I don’t like James Ernest. James Ernest is fucking brilliant. I’ve been playing his games for twenty years. I loved Pairs and was delighted to incorporate it into my world, but I knew that Tak was a purely mythical game. And while James was great, I knew that nobody could just sit down and create a game on par with chess or Go. I was going to politely look at whatever he brought me, smile kindly, and try to let him down as gently as possible.

      Then James brought me his game. And I played it.

      And it was amazing.

      I was stunned by the game. Stunned that anyone could make something like this. It’s more elegant than chess. It’s more enjoyable than Go.

      I learned to play it in about five minutes and had a blast. More than a year later, the game is still unfurling for me like a flower, as I understand more and more about the play of it."


      The guy is its too good a writer. He sold me on it, and I kind of hate him for it. Anyway, I've pledged for a copy of Tak. I'm excited about these games, and at the same time I've got this sinking feeling that Kickstarter is out to get me, and it's working. Damn these awesome games and my desire to possess them!

    • Firefly Cargo Crate

      3 years ago

      datalaughing Always Right

      So I'm not a big Loot Crate type of person. It always seemed to me like it was a bunch of money for a box full of mostly junk I'd never use or be interested in. I tried Nerd Block's Sci-Fi block for a couple of months, thinking it was the most likely to have cool stuff I'd like, and I did get a couple of cool shirts and other neat little things, but not enough to make it worthwhile.


      After I cancelled that, I saw Loot Crate advertising their various Level Up (https://www.lootcrate.com/level_up) subscriptions, and I thought, you know, for 9.99 a month, I might try the socks thing. So far, they've been pretty cool. I got Deadpool socks and glow in the dark Harry Potter dark mark socks:

      LVL-UP-BY-LOOT-CRATE-FEB-16-items-1.jpg

      And this month Mario vs Bowser and Shield vs Hydra socks:

      march-theme-3771c1f660e102cc05fd9bb32aae

      All cool, and next month is apparently going to be Zelda and Kingdom Hearts themed socks. So no way I'm stopping now.


      That's all a sidenote, though, because when I heard they were doing a bi-monthly Firefly specific crate, I signed up without a second thought. A bunch of exclusive Firefly merch? Take my money, I said, take it all! Because, you know, Firefly.


      The first crate just came in today, and I loved it. So I had to share.This first crate was Kaylee themed:

      The thing they put front and center all through the advertising for this crate has been the Quantum Mechanix Mini Masters Little Damn Heroes figures. You can see the Kaylee one on the right here.

      image1%201_zpsdjm6zx7g.jpg

      They say if you keep subscribing you'll get the whole series of figures, and they're going to be exclusive to these crates, not being sold elsewhere. That alone might be enough to keep me on boad. As a bonus, there was another little figure, this month it was going to be either Jayne or Simon. As you can see, I got Simon. He seems kind of unhappy, but I think thematically, he's a good compliment to Kaylee. I'm gonna put one of these on my desk at work and start adding to them as the new crates arrive. Which one do you think I should take?


      There was a variety of small items in the box, some concept art for the reaver ship and claw from the pilot, a couple of cards for Firefly the Game, which my girlfriend and I love and play all the time. So that was a perfect addition for me. There was a bumper sticker that says "Exported from Persephone" and a package of cocktail umbrellas that look like Kaylee's parasol. All pretty neat.


      Besides the figures, though, two things stuck out to me as being very cool. First was a small thing, but I quite liked it:

      image2_zpsr3m0xpbs.jpg

      I'm definitely going to have to find somewhere cool to put this "Everything's shiny Cap'n!" pin. It's very fun and well-made. Last, but not least, though, my absolute favorite item in the box, which may say something about my maturity level, the Kaylee bear!

      image1_zpsqbwad2fl.jpg
      (The angle I took the picture at makes her head look freakishly big; it's not really)


      The bear has red hair to match Kaylee's, and is wearing her coveralls, with the fun little change that, where Kaylee's outfit has a little bear on the leg, the bear's outfit has a little Kaylee instead. It's soft and adorable, and I was delighted with it. Will definitely be keeping my subscription to this crate.

    • So this is going to be a year of vacations, I guess

      3 years ago

      datalaughing Always Right

      Some of you may recall my journal about how I wasn't going to make it to RTX this year because I couldn't get time off around the holiday weekend. Since then I got a promotion (which makes it even harder to get off around the holidays, btw), and we've planned some other trips, more than I expected, in point of fact.

      First off, we got talked into going to Dallas in June for fan expo. We even got tickets for the live Jay and Silent Bob Get Old show theyre doing. So if anyone else is going to Dallas fan expo, let me know.


      In bigger news, we scheduled the Mediterranean cruise I mentioned in that same journal. It's going to be awesome. We're going on Norwegian, because I like their freestyle mentality. It will start in Venice with stops in Dubrovnik, Croatio; Kotor, Montenegro; Athens; Mykonos; Naples (where we get to visit Pompeii); Rome; Florence/Pisa; Toulon, France, and ending in Barcelona. I've only ever visited a few places in Europe before this. So I am pumped. If anyone has been to these places and has recommendations or advice, I'd love to hear it.


      Then, about 3 weeks after we get back from Europe, I've been invited by Jennifer's family to spend a week with them at Disney World, all paid for by them. So it would have been hard to turn down. Hoping I still know some people down there who I might get to see again. I've never been to a Disney park before, partly because I don't like theme parks. So this should be interesting. I hear the food is good, though.


      Anyway, that's my update about this year of vacations. Anyone else got cool plans?

    • Post-X-Mas Journal

      3 years ago

      datalaughing Always Right

      Well, I had a very ... varied holiday this year. Some of it was amazing, some of it not so much, but all in all, I survived, sometimes just barely.


      I spent most of the last week or two at my girlfriend's house hanging out with her and the kids. We did Christmas morning together, and it was awesome. Her big present from me was a New 3DS, which she actually opened about a month early. I'd already wrapped it, and it was under the tree one day when we were sitting around, and she was about to buy one for herself. I was like, "No, you can't buy one of those." And she laughed because she thought it was a joke, and I said, "No, seriously, you can't." And she looked over and figured out what it was I'd gotten her. So, since she already knew, and she had a use for it straight away, I told her to go ahead and open it. She got a lot of use out of it in the month in between. So I guess that worked out. Of course, I got her a few smaller presents as well. It wouldn't do to have her with nothing to open from me on Christmas. For one, I got her an Agent Carter Pop figure:

      Agent-Carter-Pop-Vinyl-funko.jpg?resize=
      Also, Ocarina of Time for her 3DS (she loves Zelda but has never played Ocarina of Time; so it seemed like something she needed to have) and some Doctor Who earrings.


      One of the kids got a mystery box full of random toys I'd picked up at Wizard World Comic Con. The box was a big Mario question mark box, which was half the fun of the present. For the other one, I got a 30 inch Appa plush, because we've recently been watching Avatar The Last Airbender with them. That went over pretty well:

      F532990E-C59A-4491-A529-BC924E01FF9D_zps
      That's Kairi (in case you were wondering, yes, her mom REALLY loves Kingdom Hearts).


      I got a couple of things that I really wanted but had decided were too expensive for me to actually buy myself. I didn't know that was the way she'd go with it, but I am indescribably grateful to her for being so awesome. First, a signed and numbered, leather bound copy of Brandon Sanderson's newly released 10th Anniversary edition of Elantris.

      ELB-front.jpg
      So pretty. Seriously, I don't think I have another book that's printed in this quality.

      Then, along the same lines, a double-signed, framed print from Jim Butcher's new Cinder Spires series:

      IMG_5501-e1441647161597.jpg
      A map of Habble Morning, copper foil embossed on blue felt paper. It's really lovely. I just have to figure out where to hang it now.


      So Christmas morning was amazing. We were both happy, and there's nothing like the thrill that kids have opening their presents. It couldn't have been better.


      That night was something else. We went to her parents' for dinner and presents. We had to get there at 3 to keep her mom company while making dinner and to help out where she'd allow. Dinner was awesome. It usually is pretty good there. She and I also spent a decent amount of time playing Batman Fluxx (another of my presents), and that was a lot of fun. Everyone's family is weird. So I won't go into any specifics on this one (but, believe me, there are some). Their approach to opening Christmas presents, though, is a bit drawn out. One present at a time is opened, starting with the oldest person present and moving in age order down the line. There were 9 people, and a big room full of presents. We started at like 8 p.m., and we finished somewhere around 11:30. With arguing and family drama to break things up throughout, of course. It was kind of a long night. Especially considering that the kids were getting tired and grumpy long before the end. So I won't say it was an unpleasant evening. It was just a very long one.


      The next day, we had tickets to see The Hateful Eight in 70mm in Dallas. So we drove the three hours with a couple of my friends. The movie was good, not my favorite Tarantino movie, but a solid film. I liked it. The theater, which boasts about their huge screens, especially their XD theater, seems to have chosen the smallest screen they had to show this film. So I'm not sure it really did justice to the 70mm, but I got a cool souvenir program out of the deal.


      As we left the theater, our phones began screaming with tornado warnings. West Texas and the panhandle were getting hit by a blizzard, Dallas got tornadoes. We avoided those, though we did discover that on our drive back, we went through some areas that got hit by tornadoes a mere 10-20 minutes after we passed. The entire way through the Metroplex was sheeting down rain, though, to the point where I couldn't see anything but the lights of the car in front of me at times, and the winds were high, trying to knock me off the road. It was a bit nerve-wracking, I can tell you. We did make it back in one piece, though. I thought that was the worst I'd see for a while. Turns out, not so much.


      She lives about 15 minutes (on the interstate) away from Abilene, where I live. Sunday we had to drive into town. We'd heard some winter weather warnings, but for the first 5-10 minutes, it was all fine. It looked like a lot of people worrying about nothing. Then, like someone had hit a switch, we hit the sleet. Frozen rain coming down so thick that we couldn't see very far, and, considerably worse, there was suddenly a quarter inch of it built up on the road. We start sliding and nearly go under the 18 wheeler flying along the interstate beside us, but I managed to get it under control, or at least sliding in a slightly different direction, until we've coasted from like 70 mph to 25, when the car finally starts doing exactly what I tell it to again. So that was fun times, and for the last couple of days I've been working from home because I don't particularly want to mess with the ice and snow that are still out there.


      So, like I said at the start, it's been a varied holiday season for me, but you take the good with the bad, yeah? I also got her Lego Dimensions, which we've just started playing, and so far it's pretty entertaining. So is Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, which she got me. I also got Star Wars Battlefront for my PS4, which I haven't had a chance to try yet, but I plan to. So if anyone else has it, let me know, (looking @jedipoet ). I assume it's more fun with people you know.


      What was everyone else's holiday like?

      Looks like I won't be able to make it to RTX this year. It's always been tricky where I work to get time off around a holiday. Before now I managed it by being cleverer than my coworkers and finding loopholes in the PTO rules. Since starting in my new position this year, that's gotten harder. It looks like there's just no way I'll be able to take any time around the 4th of July weekend. This is going to be the first RTX I've missed since the original when I couldn't get tickets because they sold out instantly. I'm kind of down about it.


      On the bright side, though, my girlfriend and I decided to save up some money, including what we would have spent going to RTX, and try to take a Mediterranean cruise at some point next year. I'm very excited at this prospect. Now I just need the cash.

    • Wooo! Winner!

      So we got tickets for Wizardcon/Wizard World/Whatever it's called, since we were going to be in Austin this weekend anyway. We headed to Buffalo Billiards tonight for an after hours event called Drink and Draw or something like that. Artists and writers compete while everyone is drinking and having a good time. While my drawing skills are less than nonexistent, I managed to pull off first place in the writing competition and take home $100 cash. The prompt was to write a post credits scene for a movie that had no post credits scene. I wrote one for The Last Airbender, which ends with M. Night Shayamalan being executed for his crimes against cinema.

      Thank you, thank you, I know I'm amazing

      I don't think you and I were ever "official" RvB friends, but I will accept nonetheless.

      sounds fun, just know I'll be bringing kaida along with me... but it depends on when you're here honestly. the family's going up to Ohio during the 4th of July weekend, and won't be back until the weekend after (actually around the 7th).

      Meh. And I just found out the DVR fucked me over by not redording tonight, so I've missed the first 10 minutes. This sucks.

      Tried to get you on Live, but you got off... Which "perfectly legal means" did you use for Doctor Who? I have become highly impatient and am not liking being behind with the BBCA version while everybody else is right on with the BBC version.

      No, not really, just an offer. I had thoughts about doing it for Dac for a time as well, and he wasn't there as long as you. As the time starts to get closer, and you're getting a place, you can let me know, and we can do that. I don't mind hanging out in the city for the day.

      Did you get my most recent message? I just want to finalizes dates and, more importantly, schedules/times so I can request time off accordingly. And I'd like to book my bus tickets too.

      Just let me know what your specific plans are so I can get it set in stone for myself.

      Alright, so my sister'll still be sleeping on the couch since she's here from university. But we can stow her some damn where. If you bring Tack the couch folds out into a bed....or one of you can take the floor. We do have a cat and a dog in the house, by the way.

      Otherwise, I'm not seeing anything wrong with this arrangement yet. Putting a sticky note on the monitor to remember August 7th.

      LOL Nope doesn't seem weird! Remind me a few weeks before the trip so I'll know closer to the date if I'm free. I really can't foresee a problem right now though.

      So, since it's been so long since that mafia game that it's basically been scrapped, can you tell us who was mafia? Just for a bit of closure?

      As far as I know I shall be there and you may sleep on my couches! Just know I have kitties, in case one of you is allergic, but they are non-allergenic and most people don't react to them.

      Sounds like a plan. I just have to get the leave paperwork set up. Shouldn't be a problem.

      Starting the series finale of TLA. It seems to me that Aang's firebending would be just as enhanced by the comet as The Fire Lord's.

      I think it would be hard to convince my parents that it's cool to let a guy named data stay at the house for a couple of days. I could try though.
