I’m not the hugest fan, he’s ok, but what a great photo.

Half-orcs with halberds guard the temple of Gruumsh, beneath the one-eyed gaze of his enormous statue.  (Bill Willingham from AD&D module A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity, by David Cook, TSR, 1980.)

Much love for Gruumsh

It’s the ‘holy moley’ that really makes the panel work.

In a short scene cut from the eventual film, Molokar Dar (@lecky) rouses Gamora from her bunk with his favorite knife.

I hope this is included on the DVD as one of the few quibbles I had with the movie was how easily these yobs subdued Gamora, who is clearly capable of dismembering them without batting an eye. A friend theorized she had simply given up, but it would be nice to see this explained.

Eventually the odds are that Marvel will make an unsatisfactory film (the core MCU, not Sony or the mutants), but each one remains as if not more appealing than the last. I thought Guardians would be a blunder, and here I’ve seen it more times than any other Marvel film.

While people have referenced “42” to death, not many people I meet have seen (or read, or listened to) one of the many incarnations of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  The 1981 show had production values roughly on par with Doctor Who episodes, but with wonderfully charming animated segments representing the book’s various entries.

My dad taped it off PBS when I was very young and, when I was about 10 or 11, said “here, watch this.”  It’s great.   (He also has the first Stooges LP and never bothered to do the same thing - I had to find out about that one on my own.)

Anyway, if you have a half hour to kill I suggest watching the first of six episodes of the TV show (and the rest, if you like it).  The radio dramas are also fun (and now span all 5 books), plus there are also novels for those of you who are still inclined to read.   If social media people or message boards haven’t made you hate it before you’ve seen it (see also: Army of Darkness, Monty Python, Firefly, Doctor Who) I suggest giving it a try.  I’m not saying it’s great - but it is one of those rare instances of something that’s sci-fi and funny.  Not “ha ha R2-D2 beeped” or “Spock said something snide” but clearly inspired by actual comedy.

Not only is Hitchhiker’s fun, but these episodes — while wonderfully cheesy in a Brit sic-fi kind of way — really capture the tone of the books (I’m one of about ten people who liked the movie, which didn’t do as good a job with Douglas Adams’ vibe). Actually I think this is exactly the tone that Guardians of the Galaxy tried — and succeeded — in capturing, at least with the humor. They have more action (and better production value), Adams has better humor. Enjoy both.

Warner Bros. Sues New York Bar For Playing 80-Year Old Song | TorrentFreak

Events like these are a large part of the reason I hate the MPAA and RIAA. Who is really being hurt by the playing of this song? Stop being so avaricious, this song and others like it have paid for themselves a thousand times over.

Holy shit.
If that doesn’t put the finest point on it you’ve ever seen/heard, I don’t know what does.

Nicely done.

In Memory Of Neil Armstrong, Take A Moment To Wink At The MoonOf all 12 astronauts to have stood on the lunar surface during the Apollo era, none are as popular as the first and most famous of the moon-walkers, Neil Armstrong.

Following his death, Neil Armstrong’s family released a statement, which reads in part: "For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."Read the full statement here: http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2012/aug/HQ_12_600_armstrong_family.htmlOn this day, join us in celebrating the accomplishments and memorable career of Neil Armstrong by taking an opportunity to wink at the Moon!To read more about Neil Armstrong:http://goo.gl/cHmz4http://goo.gl/EkKIKhttp://goo.gl/3irlOr
