  1. I see one problem with The Further Adventures of Pogo. One of the supporting characters (I think he talks to fish?) has a steady girlfriend. That kind of moves a character in the direction of having a finished arc. Have you considered writing in a Satan-like character who causes the relationship to have never existed? Just a thought.
  2. More space news!

    I'm so alone. . . In other news, the Fermi Paradox is probably the result of people not being very good with statistics. [PDF].
  3. I can wait for The Further Adventures of Pogo Involving Talking to Fish
  4. Here and I thought that Hermit was in tune with small town values.
  5. I challenge you!

    Blondie had movies? I didn't know there was enough cocaine in the world. And speaking of hypomania, Warner Brothers animation. Obviously. "Meticulous Analysis of History" vs. "Should have made a left turn at Albuquerque."

    I like Cassandra's "Featherweight," too. If you don't like the speedster/drain powerset, a shrinking brick might work with the name.
  7. In other news...

    Firing other people for screwing up an easily-screwed-up things seems perfectly reasonable to me, just as long as everyone remembers the vitally important principle that I'm excepted, because I'm special.
  8. RIP: Dolores O'Riordan

    I might be the only Gen Xer who missed the Cranberries first time around. Fortunately, Zombie was in heavy rotation on my lead hand's mix tape in my first, long ago night crew rotation, and I caught up with my generation. Unfortunately, a "sudden death" at 46, especially given the other unsubtle hints about managing back pain and an attempted suicide in 2012 . . . Like many great performers, I have a suspicion that O'Riordan was driven by the personal demons of bipolar disorder. Which ought not be pathologised! It's a handicap like any other, and judging her for it is like judging a Type I diabetic or paraplegic for having a lower life expectancy. Ha ha, loser. Your pancreas doesn't make insulin, and you get bedsores!
  9. What's this Aquaman ripoff doing crashing Pogo's book?
  10. RIP: The Question Man-Eddie Blake

    My condolences to friends and family.
  11. Merry Christmas, Season's Greetings 2017

    Merry Christmas to ever'body except Dr. Cancer, who has our snow. (So far.)
  12. I voted for Bad Blood, as I find single-origin stories unnecessarily constraining, and also what Chris said. Terraforce would make a good movie, but I doubt that the players would be able to turn the premise into something different.
  13. Happy Thanksgiving

    a fifty-foot turkey would be awfully hard to roast without drying out the breast meat. I can't help but think that a fifty foot chicken would work better in some scenarios. (Even if you can't talk to it, like you might talk to fish.) Happy (foreign) Thanksgiving, a few days late, everybody!
  14. In other news...

    With Flat Earthers, I'm inclined to think that they've hit on their cause because it's crazy. That is, it used to be that you could get a rise out of people by being a creationist, but when everyone started bending over backwards to accommodate you, well, it just seemed unsatisfying. Then there was Moon landing denial, but when Buzz clocked that guy, you realised that you were hanging out with jerks and losers. (Same with 9/11 deniers.) I mean, those guys just didn't have the guts to embrace the crazy in a satisfying way. So, Flat Earth it is! Now you're the wackiest guy on the block for sure. . . . . So expect Moon Denial to be next.
  15. Martial Hero

    Pfft. My hometown has a martial tradition. It involves getting really drunk, and then taking wild swings until you collapse on each other, at which point the guy with the most in his stomach wins in ways that I don't want to explain here. Beat that, wuxia guys!
