Green Submarine

Music blared from the radio. "Some of us live in a green submarine," sang Tringo, of the Beapers. The Time Traveler's father shook his head. "Damn that kid and his time machine," he said, rising from his chair. "How often have I told him not to muck with the music? Martha, where's my whipping belt?"


I'm washing my hands and wondering if Booda is stealing a cupcake.

Being John Malkovich :-)

Wonderful displays
of recursive puppetry,
just like surreal life.
Daddy-O's Reviews


This visual effects-laden thrill-ride about an African safari board game with real-world consequences is loosely based on a children's book, by Chris Van Allsburg. As usual, the book is better than the film, but in this case, not by much.

What's New? Catching our Breath

There's not too much to report on this week. After the crush of getting the Icehouse pre-orders shipped out last week, this week has been relatively calm. We've been taking some time to catch our breath, and doing mundane things like laundry and coming down with colds. We also paused to celebrate my birthday... among other things, I got an 18-pocket photojournalist's vest, a really cool, highly detailed Apollo 11 toy set, and an amazing, custom-made double-breasted purple jacket, a classy replacement for my favorite all-purpose coat, a naval jacket I got at the thrift store years ago, which is now falling apart. I actually don't have it yet... it was commissioned for me by Kristin and Alison and is being tailored for me by Carol Kocian, local long haired babe and sewing artisan who also just happens to be the creator of our newly re-issued plush Icehouse pieces.

Also of course, we've also been planning for Philcon, which takes place this weekend. As I mentioned before, we're going to host a hospitality suite there, in which we demo our games and serve Pop-Tarts as refreshments. At first we were figuring to open up our suite only on Saturday night, but now we're planning to keep the room open all day Saturday, from 2 pm - 2 am. It'll be kind of like one of the early Icehouse tournaments, except with more games and less pressure. It should be a lot of fun. We'll be promoting the event the night before with little flyers we'll be handing out, as shown here.

"I love... cake!" - Eric Foreman's on-the-spot response to Donna's declaration of love on "That 70's Show"
This year, our annual holiday gift will be a nifty little game I just invented, called Q-turn. Alison created the artwork, and it's delightful! Lots of lovely curlicues, in a style very much unlike my own. And it looks like Kristin's gonna be able to bring the production in on-time and under-budget. Yay!
"How can this happen in America? I can't tell a jury why I used medical marijuana? I am stunned; speechless... I now face ten mandatory years in federal prison. I will die there. My life is over because I tried to save my life doing something my doctor recommended in a state where it is legal." - Peter McWilliams, regarding Judge George King's astonishing decision to bar the use of a medical necessity defense by a cancer/AIDS patient in a medical marijuana trial in California
