Ian: Stopped into my favorite comic book shop (Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH) before work to pick up this week’s books. As usual, I had to check the used RPG section for “new” old stuff and they had two new items that I quickly scooped up and made my own. I picked up two AD&D second edition (my favorite flavor of Dungeons & Dragons) Forgotten Realms splatbooks: Wizards and Rogues of the Realms and Warriors and Priests of the Realms. Looking forward to digging into those.
Dave: I don’t know about the rest of you, but Robocop isn’t what I’d call a great movie…but I love it. I noticed last night that Robocop 2 was on and recorded it for some night Shannon is out as background painting entertainment. A few hours later, I was turning off a different movie, and noticed Robocop 3 was ending and had to stay and watch. It was total rubbish, horrible graphics, terrible acting, and…well, Samurai robots (which usually can’t go wrong, right?). How does a movie like that get made? Who has that kind of money to burn and why can’t they get connected one of the talented creative people I know who can’t catch a break?
Matt: My airbrush arrived today! Looking forward to breaking this baby out and testing it on the Dreadfleet boats. I’ve been looking at plans for a homemade airbrush spray booth for about $30, so I’ll have to get that together first. After Dreadfleet is complete I’ll be moving on to a super secret project…. watch this space for more!
Ian: My wife is laid up with a bad back and was bored, so we decided to watch X-Men: First Class this morning. I got the Blu-Ray for Christmas but did not have a chance to watch it until today. VERY good movie with a really strong cast. They did a nice job tying it into the previous three X-Men movies and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine cameo was pure win.
Dave: I’m reading Leviathan right now (well…Audible, which is incredibly well read by Alan Cumming) and I love it! Looks like Scott Westerfield has lots of other works out there…anyone read any? Recommendations for where to go next? The art on some of these looks cool, so I’ll have to figure out which ones I need to own. http://scottwesterfeld.com/ http://www.facebook.com/scottwesterfeldfan
