  1. And more Terminators, if I'm not mistaken. It's hilarious to hear that guy talk about "other stories to tell". Just shut up, James.
  2. Didn't Steven Spielberg recently crap-talk comic book movies? Well well. Spielberg to make DC Comics' Blackhawk http://ew.com/movies/2018/04/17/steven-spielberg-blackhawk/

    The Incredibles 2

    Several critics thought so. Bird himself has stated he's not even libertarian, let alone a follower of Ayn Rand (those two things aren't synonymous, btw). But then I've noticed that many critics of Ayn Rand have no real idea what she was talking about in the first place.

    Changes in a world with superpowers

    I've had a camera crew following my hero team around for over a year now for a FOX reality show. Not only is it fun to have a camera man and a boom mic operator to endanger in every single session (when the team can't manage to slip away from them, which isn't often), it's been fun roleplaying. They've had to adjust their tactics (and language) somewhat, now that they know the entire world will see a detailed breakdown of each battle eventually. Next I'll have them go on a press junket around the country to promote it. Lots of new villains!

    Dealing with burnout

    I agree with RDU, my group has done something similar. We have three different teams of heroes based in three different cities, so we mix it up that way. It also helps to have more than one GM. I've run about 90% of our sessions over the past five years or so. When I start feeling the burnout one of the other GMs takes over for a session or two. Invariably that gets my juices flowing again. If for no other reason than they're not as good at it as I am.

    D.C.'s Legends of Tomorrow

    I haven't watched it yet, still catching up on all the CW supershows after a surgery last month. I do think LoT is my favorite of all of them at this point. It didn't start off that way but the way the show has embraced self-deprecating humor and a rather tongue-in-cheek approach to time travel has won me over (still don't like Isis or whatever she's called, though). Arrow's become kind of a drag and while Flash is still fun I'm just tired of everybody being a speedster.
  8. Awww...I was telling everybody after Opening Day that the Cubs' Ian Happ was on pace to hit 162 homers this year...
  9. It's not just seeing MLB players on rehab (although I did catch Nomar while he was in town on rehab with the Pawtucket Red Sox several years back), but keep an eye on the coaching staffs as well. I was able to meet and get Ryne Sandberg's autograph a few years ago when he was managing the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.

    Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

    If Circum keeps the map when dungeon crawling, does that mean Circum navigates?
  11. Minor league ball is the best! I'm going in for surgery on May 1st, hoping to get downtown to see an Indianapolis Indians game or two before then. Their home opener was this past Friday evening. The team for years has offered a "Sixty Degree Guarantee" on Opening Night. If the temp isn't at least 60 by first pitch, everybody in the place gets a ticket to another April game. Wish I'd have made it down there, as the temperature at game time was right around freezing. It actually snowed.

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    Finally watching Six Feet Under. Halfway through Season 2. It's as good as I've always heard it was. Neat to see Dexter handling dead bodies without having killed them first.

  15. The problem with this is that mound visits rarely take up much time, so the effect it will have on pace of play is negligible. I've read that a lot of catchers will be wearing 'cheat sheets' on wrist pads, a la football quarterbacks. They probably should've been doing this already; the number of pitchers used last year broke a record. That's a lot of pitchers for the catcher to keep track of: their repertoire of pitches and which are better than others, their tendencies, etc. With a limited ability to have a quick word if signals get crossed up it could be the difference between a win and a loss. Sometimes a game comes down to one mistake.
