  1. I'm currently running a Blades in the Dark game, and of the baked into the setting gang bosses, Baszo Baz, always comes out like Alfie Solomons from Peaky Blinders.
  2. I know I am probably very late to the party on this one but I recently binge-watched Peaky Blinders series 1 through 4. Utterly brilliant. Compelling storytelling and a superb soundtrack, with cinematography that I swear was so good you could freezeframe at any point and talk about just why everything in the shot was perfectly composed. For those not in the know - it's a drama series about a family of illegal bookmakers and their rise through the underworld set immediately after World War I, and it is tremendous.
  3. 2000AD Flesh strip? If I remember rightly the spiders were attracted to sound and someone managed to lure them into a trap with a radio playing "Yellow Rose of Texas." A week later in a school singing lesson that very song came up and I whispered to my pal "Careful the spiders don't get you!" - he exclaimed "What spiders?" at the top of his voice and the teacher made me explain. Ah, memories.
  4. I enjoyed the scene she did with Dungeons Deep and Caverns Cold.
  5. I was indeed too shy to appear in public being a shill for my own work so asked DT if he'd be kind enough to see if there was a socially acceptable way of doing this. And many thanks to DT for raising it! If anyone does want to read a novel that combines Regency sensibilities with cyberpunk thriller in a novel of dynastic intrigue that isn't quite the gumbo it sounds like... then please do check it out Linky Here
  6. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Just finished the audiobook of Neil Gaiman's "Anansi Boys" - read by British actor/comedian Lenny Henry. Young man discovers that his late father was Anansi the trickster god of West African tradition. Magical and supernatural fun ensues. Excellent book with some memorable characters. One thing I noticed, which was not spotlighted at all, but when I noticed it made me grin, was that the only time a character is described by their skin colour is if they are caucasian - a nice reversal of the usual assumptions in most literature.
  7. Re: Creepy Pics. A later story addressed that... even a recorded or transmitted image of a Weeping Angel can allow the Angel to manifest through the viewing medium.
  8. Re: Creepy Pics. Nods, I quite agree. My comments were my observation on RPer's reactions rather to my own. I found Blink an excellent story, and the Angels a splendid new addition to Who canon... but every time I see them being discussed the focus is less on story and atmosphere and more on the chances of putting mirrored hoods on the Weeping Angels or some other such unlikely fun.
  9. Re: Creepy Pics. LOL - Roleplayers make very bad audiences for horror. "A charging tyrannosaur is no problem, all you need to do is step to one side and lay a series of man traps in front of their feet as they run, then as they start hopping in pain grease up a steep slope just in front of them that leads down to a deep pit of quicksand. That I prepared earlier."
  10. Re: Make Your Own Motivational Poster Churchill on being corrected for ending a sentence with a preposition refuted it wonderfully "This is the kind of nonsense up with which I will not put."
  11. Re: Make Your Own Motivational Poster My pet peeve with grammar is the "snob's error" - using "I" in a sentence when "me" is actually correct. "That film was very amusing to Steve and I" and so on. So easy to correct (take out the other person and see if it still sounds right) but so many people do it because they think it sounds more refined.
  12. Re: A Thread for Random Videos A taser in fact. He already had back up (the cruiser that was filming it for one). But ouch indeed. He got the guy too
  13. Re: A Thread for Random Videos It makes sense that the crazies get more press indeed. Good luck my friend!
