Whoa…Hi to all the new people!
Yes, yes. I know most of you are only here hunting for Loki…or donuts…or Loki and donuts but still…HI!!
GamingHUD is your source for all things E3 this week. Well, it is my source but you all are welcome to join in and check out all the new and soon-to-be released gaming stuff. I am looking forward to the whole Smart Glass thing because trying to search for movies on netflix with the game controller is a huge pain (grin) but I know most people are waiting for news on their particular favorite game or franchise. Dean and Aldath are living on energy drinks, coffee and sheer willpower this week so they won’t miss a minute of the conference.
I’ve started packing for vacation which basically means I am hunting for Scooter’s shoes. I think they are sentient and actually hide themselves when I am not looking but so far I have been unable to prove this.
I have been sort of following the Diamond Jubilee. By following I actually mean reading Jack Moore’s tweets and watching an occasional vid but whatever.
Then I found this. I have no words.
Kit’s ‘So Awesome It Blows Awesome Out of The Water’ Awesome Vid of the Day
Grace Jones – Slave to the Rhythm – Live at the Diamond Jubilee
Okay, two mornings in a row of being up way before the sun is my limit. I’m taking the day off to play Skyrim…or watch Captain America on my laptop…or do laundry. Whatever.
My new Captain America earrings arrived yesterday! I was going to take a picture of me wearing them until I realized I am really bad at trying to photograph myself with the camera on my phone. Now I have all these bizarre pics of my ear at weird angles.
Sci-fi writer Martha Wells discusses finishing her lastest book and other writer-ly things.
Catch a first chapter preview of Throne of the Crescent Moon on author Saladin Ahmed’s website.
I have a terrible craving for pimento cheese sandwiches. I blame shoreacres for this problem.
Becky Chambers over at The Mary Sue discusses the ‘Hey Sweetheart’ scenario in RPG video games. I am not a fan of the DA:O Alistair example she uses since I think it is there to foreshadow a plot point, rather than to remind us that we are girls. The endless ‘pretty one’ remarks we have to endure later in the game and the ‘I dare you to slice open my bare midriff‘ female Dalish armor however, are excellent examples. Nice article and interesting discussion in the comments section.
Loki – I have an army.
Stark - We have a Hulk.
Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day – Marvel’s The Avengers Super Bowl XLVI
If I could get Scooter to take a nap I would go veg on the couch and watch Iron Man…again. It’s that kind of a day.
There is still time to cast a vote (or many votes) for Viv and the Revival in the ESPN Who’s Next in music promotion. You can continue to vote until Thursday.
I have a new review up on GamingHUD for Margaritaville Online.
So I had moved my office to the sunroom but it was just too noisy to work there so I have moved it back to
my coffee bar the breakfast room. And when I say I moved, of course mean Kahuna moved all the heavy furniture from room to room and I followed along behind with you know…a book or a CD. Now I can stare at my coffee pot when I am deep in thought.
