Scarlett Johansson Creature bait?


As some of you may know, Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be the lead female in the remake of Creature From the Black Lagoon. She seems like a good choice for the Creature's amorous attention. I hope that they include the swimming scene --- any excuse to get Johansson in a bikini.

On the downside, I am a little nervous about comments made by Universal chairman Donna Langley. She said, "we settled upon an idea, which is to take it out of the horror genre, put it more in the action-adventure genre and make it present day...". Wait what? WTF. You want to take Classic Horror out of the Horror genre?

I don't want to tell a "Chairman" her job, but when I go to a comedy I expect funny,when I go to a horror movie I expect to be scared, and when I go to an action movie I expect to see shit blow up. You can add a little of those elements to a horror movie but not replace horror with those elements.

Oh well, this wouldn't be the first time Hollywood has ruined a childhood favorite.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - New Gameplay Trailer!


The latest game trailer for the greatly anticipated game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


Shadow box holds 10 comics

I looked everywhere for a solution but finally came up with this frame hack. It holds 10 comics inside and stands by itself or hangs on the wall. You can open the front and take out the comics with the bookmark ribbons. It keeps my comics clean and dust-free and proudly displays the book of my choice on the top of the stack: a BRPD #1 comic singed by the entire Dark Horse team, creator Mike Mignola, colorist Dave Stewart, artist Guy Davis, and editor Scott Allie! Best of all it's super easy to do: cut two wood spacers, paint them to match and glue them in place with the ribbons underneath.

The Viking Board Game --- Hnefatafl Board



 Every Sunday my family gather for breakfast and our weekly gab-fest. In my case, my nephew Willy and I talk games. In the spirit of our weekly chats, I've decided to talk about a game that I find very interesting called tafl or hnefatafl.

 Hnefatafl is a an ancient Viking era game that was popular in Northern Europe. It is a chess-like game where the pieces move somewhat like the rooks of chess. The object is one player to surround the King on four sides or the other player to move his King to the border's corner. Check out the
"Let's Play" video ...


If you would like to try your hand at making a board, Instructables has an excellent build to look at (link). I'm really in the mood to try this game with some mead. My ancestors would be so proud ... *smile*
