Thoughts on a Couple Subjects

First, Happy 4th Of July to all our American neighbours!

Second, against my better judgement I saw Transformers 3 last night. I won't reveal spoilers but I will say this: How do I get those two hours back? I seem to say that after each Transformers movie. The first was a big commercial for Ebay, the second was just terrible, and the third is just dreadful. Plot holes, stupid scenes, overt patriotism where it just wasn't needed. Transformers is the only movie series that can take cars, women, and guns and make a clusterfuck out of it.

Third, I just finished reading the "pathfinder is outselling 4E" thread at enworld. All I can say to that is - great! I don't play pathfinder and, due to a desire to get away from 3.X crunch I never will, but I like how they do what they do. It's a pretty straightforward recipe for them. Let WotC make an important decision on something and then do the opposite.

Again, have a great holiday!


  1. I gave up after the first one and only saw the second recently and wanted my time back then. I recall saying it was not nearly as good and lacked enough Megan Fox to make it tolerable. The movie I wanted to sue for my time back on was First Knight. I could have lived with it if they had not made it about Camelot and just made up other names.

  2. I'm glad to say I haven't seen any of them, but to be fair I was never a Transformer fan. They became popular when I was in high school.

  3. On a completely unrelated topic, I love your new blog background! Dungeon fungus rules!

  4. I agree 100%. CGI digital headache, so much flash going on the eyes and brain are fatigued after about 10 min. Writing sucks, acting is sub par--what a waste of a good 80's concept.
