Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” During this annual compulsion to “never forget”, I go with it. I agree, it’s folly to just forget the most critical moments and decisions that formed our current situation. I argue that we must remember more than just the wicked men who […]Read More Why do we have to remember?
If you follow this blog, you know that I’m really into RPG gaming, and no system has scratched that itch like Burning Wheel. Now I’m trying a different iteration of that system, called Burning Empires. It’s based on the Iron Empires series of comics, which are just fantastic. We’re playing tonight. And I’m ready to […]Read More Gonna burn some empires tonight
So, I may have been remiss in updating this blog. There actually is a legit reason for it. I’m lazy. No, seriously, I’m lazy.

Those dialect maps are quite accurate, at least when I compare […]Read More Research for the big move

When they, for no practical reason, steal equipment or raid facilities to destroy hard drives that they know for a fact is backed up somewhere else, they are thieves and vandals.

I will spoil this movie in this review. Don’t worry, though. There’s not much to spoil. I have to admit, I was a huge fan of Neill Blomkamp’s District 9. It takes a helluva story to make someone feel compassion for shrimp. It was dirty and mean, and most importantly, realistic. When I watched it, there weren’t […]Read More Movie Review – Elysium
