It's unknown to me who made this image, but everytime I look at it I have to at least stifle a laugh... because the way Aragorn rushes into combat almost without warning is nearly similar to how that fateful battle began at Blackrock Spire. Unfortunately not everyone will get the joke. Just you MMORPG jocks.
I hope it would not only look aesthetically pleasant, but differentiating individual comments would be much easier now.
Comments for the comments in the form of kudos, critiques and exploding toilets would be most welcome.
And by the way...
Last night we were about to go to sleep when Irfan asked for his Dinosaur book (Das Reich Der Dinosaurier. Gee, I wonder where I bought that for him) to read. It was out in the darkened living room according to memory so I told him, "Go out and get it."
He said, "No, I'm scared."
What? That's never happened before. "What are you scared of?"
"It's dark. There are dragons."
Ain and I both looked at each other. She then asked again, "Why are you scared?"
"There are dragons outside." He doesn't pronounce it "dragons", not does he say "dwagons". It's more of something in between, like "dr-wagons", which I find pretty amusing.
So, I had to go out into the dark living room, braving against the dragons to retrieve Irfan's fallen book. The deed was done without much problems, though I was disappointed I didn't see or have to fight off Trogdor to get to it.
Maybe someday I will.
Hopefully a comp copy will be in my hands within the month.
Its name is Noumenon, and its preview cover art is displayed right below.
The Star Wars Artists' Guild hath return'd, thanks to the hard labour of Kris "Eclipse" Vanderwater. Festivities are held here. A short and concise explanation of the site's disappearance was given by Derek "Nafai" Jones right here.
So if you're a GM or a player of SWRPG, whether you're on D6, d20 or homebrewed... or if you just want to browse through some good SW art... go there and comb through the site for excellent Star Wars artwork for free your gaming use.
A skilled guitarist.
All kinds of awesome. Gave me goosebumps. Fantastic sudden minor key shift in the middle.
Check it out.
Thanks to Irfan's Tok and Opah, he now has a brand new bicycle with which he would rule the world. Or at the very least the play area at the KLCC park. Quite eager to try out his new vehicle in the morning, we took a drive to KLCC last Saturday morning.
As usual, the queue into the parking lot is atrociously long for the simple reason that the coin machine at the entrance gate sucks majorly. It costs a ringgit to enter the parking lot. It took me a brazillion tries pushing in the 50 cent coins into the slot until they finally dropped in, raising the barricade arm.
To KLCC: Get a new gate system. The current one sucks. Or have someone there weekend mornings to receive money with one hand and the gate lever in the other.
Additionally, a pox on the testicles on each of the drivers that jumped the queue that morning.
According to the press release, we have seven months to sit around, twiddle our thumbs and tap our toes to catch the third season of Battlestar Galactica. The 90-minute second season finale will be aired on Friday. I guess I can wait, watch the news or the cool, flashy ads they air on TV until then.
Scott Collura of Now Playing Magazine wrote of the impending third season: "The network press release promises “even more of the drama, intrigue, and action that viewers have come to expect from the series,” which sounds like typical PR talk – until you remember that Battlestar Galactica has so far provided us with more drama, intrigue, and action than we could ever have hoped for."
Amen to that.
To BB, Jo-Jo, Reilly, Beano, Dipper, Flat Top, Chuckles, Jolly, Crashdown, Sheppard, Dash, Flyboy, Stepchild, Puppet, Fireball...
To all of 'em.
At the end of last summer, we finally finished our library project. We turned the front room from a room where the books were stacked on the floor to having books sorted out on bookshelves.
OK, let's admit it. Neither Vin nor I are handy enough to actually build our own bookshelves, believe me we have enough trouble trying to assemble anything that has the tag "Some assembly required", so Josh, our friend Jeanne's grandson was commissioned to do the actual building. Here's a little photojournal of the evolution of our library.
I came up with it quick and dirty, taking only about 45 minutes to whip this up. Apologies to all rhinoceros beetles worldwide for any discrepancies in anatomy.

Tonight was the first time Irfan met his Uncle Kok Soon, my former schoolmate from way back when Knight Rider was on TV, and perhaps even before. Irfan immediately took a liking to him, trying to impress him with his dinosaur book, his toy cars and his familiarity to the lyrics of the Firefly theme. We had light meal at mamak shop before that, then headed back to our house for a chat. It was great having Kok Soon as a guest for the night, talking about trials and tribulation of life, perseverence, spirituality, xenomorph facehuggers and such. Before midnight, he had to go home back to Bukit Antarabangsa.
