Potential Spoilers for Black Panther! Show more
I just got back on the red-eye from #Wakanda. I am both exhilarated and spent. I highly recommend a visit.
I leave it to our #black brothers and sisters in #geekdom to provide any in-depth analysis, judgment, or critique they feel this #film merits. My opinion doesn’t really matter. I just enjoyed the ride and enjoyed seeing all the surrounding #blerd joy.
One last thing though:
GIANT ARMORED RHINO MOUNTS FTW!
While I have encountered nothing but wise use of the “CW” option for spoilers in the Fediverse, I’ve yet to figure out how to mute specific keywords and phrases in my Mastodon client, e.g.: “Black Panther”. So ... I’m just not going to chance it. Catch everyone *after* I see the Black Panther movie this coming Wakanday.
FYI Humble Book Bundle has an Angry Robot bundle right now and the books are really good!
@ScottRoche Hmm ... assuming the younger characters were all grown up, and I wanted to mix in a bit of comedy with the action —
Dr. Quest: Victor Garber.
Jonny: Chris Pratt, who should trade in the long sleeves and pants for a t-shirt and shorts.
Hadji: Aziz Ansari, who would inevitably get involved in the writing and make Hadji a more contemporary character.
Hardrock: Dawyne “The Rock” Johnson.
Jenny: Eliza Dushku, just because I miss her.
Director: no idea.
@Canageek “Depravo the Rat”: a super-strong, intelligent —you guessed it— rat, with thumbs, who could walk upright and stood two meters tall when he did. A master at breaking into places and breaking out of traps, this character was a waaaay too obvious homage to the true masters of one of my least favorite apartments of the past. I’m surprised I never came up with some sort of “Captain Cockroach” as well. #WeirdCharacters
@nickwedig Hmmm ... I’d wonder what stuff was sensitive to being cold, hot, wet, oxygen-deprived, vibrated, moved; which items shouldn’t be placed too close together else they’d interact; what part of the collection requires regular re-warding, feeding, sacrifices; and of course, the size of the blast radius when some treasure’s special conditions for existence get violated. That’s all I’ve got.
@kevinhearne Might I humbly suggest experimenting with “Edensoy Extra -Vanilla” as part of your dairy free adventures? In my corner of the universe, that stuff is hard to get and a bit pricey, but it’s the only soy drink I can take straight without grimacing. As a alternative, just never drink soy milk straight; always mix in something like coffee (“café au soy”), or better yet, cocoa powder —because chocolate fixes everything. :)
Best of luck on SoyQuest.
@ScottRoche Some favorite story-related podcasts: Escape Pod (#sf); Podcastle (#fantasy); Pseudopod (#horror); Glittership (#queer #sff); Flame On! (comic/movie/game/#drag fandom); Black Tribbles: Prime (#poc fandom), Gutter Talk (comic fandom), Micheaux Mission (black #cinema review), etc; Free Planet X by @Planetx (category-defying); Raven & Writing Desk by @authorchrislester (future-tech magic mashup); Steal the Stars (mercs UFO paranoia). Enjoy.
@martinralya Wow. It’s never taken me that long to dust, vacuum, pop a pizza in the oven, put beers on ice, que up some Tolkien-ish music, lay out the tabletop #rpg stuff, then mentally mash up 3-4 of the most recent #science articles / #comicbook arcs / #fantasy novels / #sciencefiction podcasts into “our story so far”. ;) Then again, I’m guessing Gary Gygax ran a more polished game than I ever will. No sentient root vegetables merging Voltron-style into vege-Kaiju for his players.
@bridgebury I’m making wild assumptions about your resources...
1) On payday, get enough fish/chicken/tofu to feed your household until the next one. Cut into fillets/nuggets/cubes. Spice/Bread. Freeze in one-week sets. Cook a week’s worth at a time & store in fridge.
2) Similar story w pasta/rice; Just don’t add sauce.
3) Similar story w frozen vegetables, but keep them in the freezer until needed.
4) Every night, nuke any 2 or 3 of the above items & add a different sauce. #IDIC
