Re: What the worst performance you ever saw?

^ On a related note, the point in the third presidential debate where Trump says, "I'm no puppet! I'm no puppet! She's the puppet!" That's ... a president. In live performance, I saw a mediocre performance of Romeo and Juliet. I wanted to like it, but the acting and stage beats weren't the...

So one person emails an invitation for a Friday night game.

Re: What major life experience changed you?

My first time abroad, traveling alone, was a great boon to me learning to be comfortable alone when among people, if that makes sense. I've always been comfortable alone, but felt awkward when alone in public situations where people are usually together, like at pubs or exhibits. I learned how to ta...

Re: Do you want the corner piece with all the frosting?

IT HAS TO BE GOOD FROSTING. Also, bonus for chocolate.

Re: What did you love about the 1980s?

I liked the emergence of the space shuttle program, and the space-oriented sci-fi that emerged in this decade, from Iain Banks's first forays into the Culture books and Isaac Asimov's continuation of the Foundation books to Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis trilogy. I liked the cartoons. Yes, They were m...

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

^ Agreed! I saw King Arthur. I liked it as this medievalist metal action flick, brooding and serious to the point of near-absurdity at points, willing to crack some humor at other points. So, as an action flick it's rather light on the explanations, and at times a bit muddled. The action begins with...

Re: What monster should my tabletop characters fight?

I went with an entlike creature that tapped its roots into baristas to mind-control them and set off natural disasters to build up a world tree that would restore the life of the city (while choking out its human denizens). So in many ways it was like a cultist for an Elder God. It got defeated when...

Re: Disney Princess Avengers

Just an aside, I'd watch a Disney Princess heist film. I think in many ways that plays better to their strengths without having to radically rewrite their characters: subterfuge, strategic planning, observation, charisma, and execution are all necessary to bring a successful heist about.

First I was picky, and I didn't want lobster. Then I learned to love shrimp, realized I still hate crab, and I never went back.
