Alright time to try some horror from New Zealand. This is another film with a positive bit of buzz behind it. Maybe this will actually pay off unlike the last film with a lot of positive reviews.
Here is Housebound.
Meet Kylie a petty crook because she looks and acts like a meth/crack head. After a failed attempt at robbing a bank machine she is put under house arrest. Better than prison right? Well unless the house is comes with your annoying mom and ever silent step-father. Not only that but she has to deal with a social worker/therapist and has various dealings with the security guard that clamped on her home prisoner ankle bracelet. Still better than prison right? Well not if your home arrest involves a haunted house. Yup. The house is haunted and Kylie and Amos (the security guard and amateur ghost hunter) are on the case. This of course comes with the typical haunted house movie jump scares, noises and associated mystery into what/why the house is haunted. If that isn’t enough there is a creepy neighbor and a twist that turns this from a typical haunted house film into something entirely different.
This doesn’t sound half bad now does it? Like a big house arrest version of Scooby-Doo.
Well it was anything but that and the Scooby- Doo adventure would have been more satisfying.

I am a sucker for a good game trailer.
I also loved me some Warhammer Online.
However, isn't this world (and possibly game) over?
Why get this out now? Will it suck more than the computer skirmish battle games they have put out before?
Meh! At least it looks cool and the end is pretty sweet!

Holy crap I was finally free up to play some D&D this past weekend. Adult life is such crap at times! Especially when you want to throw dice with the guys.
They were starting a new group so I threw out a couple dudes that would be starting at 3rd level. Everyone got a single heirloom-like weapon/item/armor that would give a +1 combat bonus to hit and damage as well.
The first was an ½ elven ranger. A gold standard character for any fantasy game. I made him an archer because once again, gold standard! I used the quick build to get his gear and the majority of his skills. He would choose the hunting class and bow as his weapon focus. Then take colossal slayer and pick beasts as his ranger nemesis. A couple spells, hail o’ thorns, cure wounds and some entangling shot spell. His long bow would be the +1/+1 magical item. One character down.

I know it is not a big dealt to a lot of nerd bloggers out there, but I have had over 200,000 hits on my little corner of the interweb. I think that is insane!
I never would have thought I would get that many people popping into look at my pics and read my inane and insane ramblings.
Known or unknown thanks for dropping in to drink from my over flowing well of knowledge!
Now drink deep friends! Become enlightened!

The interwebs have given me another “horror” movie to view. There is a lot of positive buzz around the film…a film made in 2006, but not released until 2013. Wait! What?! This sounds sketchy already. Oh well here goes……
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Mandy Lane is a quiet yet fairly hot high school sophomore. It seems that she is permanently single and makes all other teenage boys want her. Now this is not by her doing. See, in the school she attends all the boys have more sex drive hormones than usual and are all just steps away from being serial date rapers. The majority of the boys want to get in Mandy’s pants and be the first to deflower her.

|For you Philistines- This is "Iron" Mike Sharpe|
Alright I loved me some pro wrasslin’. I loved it as a kid and watched it long into college. Then one day I just stopped. A part of me died that day. It wasn’t that I lost interest, it was that I just didn’t have time for it anymore.
We all know professional wrestling is just a big soap opera. Sure it has medically enhanced human meat machines doing their best to beat on each other without actually beating on each other. Then you have the names for the guys which are things of beauty or beyond ridiculous. The same goes for the storylines that are woven between wrestlers and their factions. Finally, there are the moves: power bombs, choke slam, pile-drivers, neck breakers, DDT, the double axe handle, leg drops, flying elbows, the suplex, figure four leg locks and the list goes on and on. Then you have the named signature moves that are variations of the classics: Rock Bottom, Stone Cold Stunner, Sharp Shooter, Sweet Chin Music, Shake-Rattle and Roll, Diamond Cutter, Razors Edge, Million Dollar Dream, the Perfect Plex, Camel Clutch, Pedigree, Tombstone and the list goes on and on and on. All this terrible. Yet was insanely and awesome at the same time!
|How was this guy ever popular?|
What is the point of this? Well I was given a gift. A novel, but not just any novel. A book that would take me back to the beginning and remind me of all the stuff I once loved. While at the same time painting a picture of personal tragedy at the cost of fame.
The Squared Circle: Life, Death and Professional Wrestling.
|Best Book Ever!|

Angry frog men!
Now will they be usable by Circle and to what effect?
I eagerly anticipate their rules and possible use.
On the known front.....
Looks better than the artwork, but I'm still not excited about the unit.
What the hell are these guys? Besides needing to be green and have one with a white mohawk.
