…You Know I’ve Learned Something Today…

It’s Friday and I’m trying to get my ‘mojo’ back, so it’s back to the classroom of the Internets…


It was pointed out to me the other day by JB that I’m a ‘Bane Guy’, quiet possibly his ‘biggest fan’. These things are a slight, and I do mean slight, exaggeration. I do dig Bane. I am really excited to see Tom Hardy play the Anti-Batman in Nolan’s next flick. Hell I’m excited to see Bane on Young Justice tonight hopefully killing Kobra agents in their Venom drug war. And nothing shows why I love Bane more than him riding, pimp style, on a big ass T-Rex. Suck it haters.


So WoTC is coming out with a huge war game in June. The details are a bit sketchy so far, but I’m hoping for something a bit between Risk (**** out of 5) and Battlelore (***** out of 5). Apparently Chris Perkins has described the game as having “a big ass”, I’m not sure what that means but I’m ‘bout junk in the trunk. Apparently there will be factions involved in the game; thus far they’ve mentioned elves and infernals. I’m intrigued. IF this can live up to Castle Ravenloft & what it looks like Wrath of Ashardalon is going to be then it’s a must have.


Sometimes you can count on them; sometimes you want to punch them in their faces. I don’t know that I have a lot of them that I really rely on. It’s to big a responsibility for them and I put a ton of pressure on them. I think that realistically Cassandra is the only person that I unconditionally count on. Everyone else I’ve found, real or imagined, has flaws that make me want to punch babies. I am beginning to understand why my friends who have families invest all their time in them and let some of their other relationships drift. You can at least have a hand in those relationships while in a friendship you’re sometimes in the passenger seat of a runaway car.


So Mantic, the guys who make super affordable Fantasy miniatures, especially their keen undead and dwarves, have been dropping hints of making a Dungeon Crawler game. Beasts of War dot com speculated about it, so I went to Mantic dot com and checked out their video blog. I know that sometimes we Yanks don’t always understand the English style of speaking, but I really think that they might be teasing a Dungeon Crawler. THAT WOULD BE TITS! Mantic is a great company, whose customer service in my experience is unbelievable, they listen to their fans, and best of all put out affordable products. I hope they do take a stab at this since the world can NEVER have enough Dungeon Crawl games.


It’s getting closer to being done. I for one am really impressed with the changes in quality they’ve already made. I will be giving the insanely talented folks at World Works Games my money when these come out.


This guy is an idiot. First it was his inability to remember all nine of his kids’, by eight different women no less, names. Then it was him running his mouth while getting torched in the regular season. There was his “Tom Brady is an Asshole, Fuck Him!” rant. Last week he was making incredibly dumb statements about the league and the players union’s CBA negotiations. And now he wants to fight Seahawks quarterback Matt Hassleback over a Tweet. This guy is a class act.


Wrath Of Ashardalon isn’t even out yet and they’ve announced that in October this will be the next game in the series. I’m thinking we get caves this time, some drow, and a massive Balor as Ertu, the final boss. We’ll get Drizzt, Wulfgar, Buernor, Regis, & Cattie-Brie as the heroes, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we get Artemis Entreri and maybe even Jarlaxle as some of the Villains. Am I excited? Hell yes! Am I a bit disappointed this isn’t Expedition To The Barrier Peaks or Island Of Dread? Yeah, but maybe next time my dreams will come true.

Normally I’d have some RANDOM CRAP for you all, ok all three of you, but you know I just can’t think of anything that I want to talk about, so I’m out…

“If you start me up
If you start me up I'll never stop
If you start me up
If you start me up I'll never stop

I've been running hot
You got me ticking gonna blow my top
If you start me up
If you start me up I'll never stop
Never stop, never stop, never stop

You make a grown man cry
You make a grown man cry
You make a grown man cry
Spread out the oil, the gasoline
I walk smooth, ride in a mean, mean machine
Start it up

If you start it up
Kick on the starter give it all you got, you got, you got
I can't compete with the riders in the other heats
If you rough it up
If you like it you can slide it up
Slide it up, slide it up, slide it up

Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
My eyes dilate, my lips go green
My hands are greasy, she's a mean, mean machine
Start it up

Start me up
Give it all you got
You got to never, never, never stop
Slide it up, baby just slide it up
Slide it up, slide it up, never, never, never

You make a grown man cry
You make a grown man cry
You make a grown man cry
Ride like the wind at double speed
I'll take you places that you've never, never seen

Start it up
Love the day when we'll never stop, never stop
Never, never, never stop
Tough me up
Never stop, never stop

You, you, you make a grown man cry
You, you make a dead man come
You, you make a dead man come”

* = You'll get nothing today and LIKE IT!


  1. C'MON! Seriously? One day of no RANDOM CRAP! and your going to complain about it? Maybe we aren' the 'Buddies' I thought we were...

  2. I'm not complaining, just making constructive criticism. I'm just trying to tell you how much I look forward to that and how I feel let down. ;-) Ha ha ha ha ha. Just kidding!

  3. Oh, you fiesty vixen, just you wait...
