Well did it happen? Was it cool? Who cares anymore?

It is 5:00 and I am getting this out now before I know the truth.

Well last night I should have been all a twitter about the Season 7 start to the Walking Dead.

However, I didn't watch it.

I just don't care anymore.

The show tanked for me a few seasons back. but I stuck around for zombie fun times.

After the finale, the heavy handed Glenn death foreshadowing, the Morgan is a broomstick Jedi, the drek side character story lines and so on; I just don't seem to care anymore.

Now the new season has started and I imagine everyone is all a buzz about the events of last night. I haven't hit the social media to see what happened but I'll venture a guess.

Sasha, Maggie, Rosita and Michonne are all safe. The show/studio is not going to gruesomely bash in a lady's head. Double safe is Maggie because we are not going to brain a pregnant woman.

Rick and Carl are safe. They are still the meat and potatoes of the show.

Aaron is safe. Like they are going to bash in the skull of the remaining gay guy on the show. Especially since they killed half of the lesbians last season.

Daryl is safe. Norman Reedus just got his motorbike show on AMC. Plus he is still a big big fan favorite and can't see him buying it yet.

That leaves Glenn, Abrham and Eugene.

Well Glenn buy it here in the comic, do it already. Like three people on Earth don't know this happens to Glenn by now, so it will be no real surprise.

The same goes for Abraham. He has bought it in the comics by now too. Plus he has fallen in love with Sasha and looks happy. Happy on this show/ in comic usually equals dead. Another non suprise if you follow the show.

Eugene getting killed would hold no weight and feel like a easy way out for the writers. He is closest thing to comedy relief on the show as well. The plucky sidekick usually is safe. Guessing he is safe here too.

Yeah Glenn or Abraham buy the farm. That is what my comic and movie addled brain tells me.

If I'm correct I'll know when I get to work.

Our trip to the Storm Crow Tavern....

....or one of my favorite places on Earth!

This has been a place I have been hoping to visit for a few years now. A nerd/gamer tavern?
Yes please!

Red truck= typical and unoffensive lager.

A hail the mighty Cthulhu!

So much fun wall decor.

Canada Photo Dump#2 Fromme Mtn. and Kennedy Falls

Our second and first real hike for us flatlanders. We trekked up Fromme Mountain to see Kennedy Falls.

The view from the parking lot.

Up we go. The cloud cover was blocking the view of the various mountain tops nearby.

A lot of dead fall and these shallow rocky ravines.

Halloween Reboot #2 Fright Night

Fright Night.

I am a big fan of the original film. Seeing it in my youth I thought it was awesome! It did not age well, but I gained a new appreciation for it. The suburban gothic vibe it was putting out, the soundtrack/score, the intentional/unintentional campiness; just made Fright Night a completely different and much more awesome

fright night
The original, so much fun!

2011 and Fright Night gets the reboot/re-imagine treatment.

The story is basically the same. We have one Charley Brewster and a vampire name Jerry living Next door. Charley discovers this. He then has to convince anyone to believe him. Then he tries to recruit a magician who touts himself a dabbler I the dark arts/ guys who knows stuff about monsters. You then get the damsel in distress as the girlfriend is captures. All this to lead up to an eventual showdown that we all know is coming. Basically, this (and the original) is a Rear Window take-off with a vampire.

I actually didn’t hate this reboot, in fact I liked it. Why? Well….

D&D post game 10-15

Well the fellas dove down under the Earth in search of adventure this week, well that and to oblige a job they took a month ago and put on hold.

The local Archeology Guild has been sending various lower level scribes into the dwarven tunnels in search of any type of serviceable artifact, lore, lost ruins etc.

The party “happily” took Lukas Fudderer, Scribe 1st Class, with them in accordance with the terms of service and to ensure they got paid.

D&D pre-game 10-15

Image result for dwarf battle goblins

In the few weeks that followed the discovery of the lost dwarven under-tunnels many discoveries have been made. The amount of lost artifacts, loot, texts, tablets, runes, etc. is amazing. Easily this will help advance the city of Ferrous Spur and the myriad of dwarf and gnome engineers and tinkerers there.

However, this has not been all fortune and glory for the dwarves. These under tunnels are still infested with a myriad of monsters and even worse, this discovery has awakened the ever present rivals of the dwarves. The green skinned races have begun to muster and assault the dwarves clearing and researching these tunnels at every opportunity.

The latest push has the dwarves trying to establish a solid hold on the main tunnel junction for the region. If they can hold here they can easily move troops and their various weapons of war to the various goblinoid invasion points. This could easily shatter the ever tenuous moral issues that these gribbly green buggers are notorious for.

Canada Photo Dump: Lynn Canyon

Alright for those outside the know, I was in Vancouver British Columbia for the two weeks prior.


Well to hike, a vacation, to get married, and a honeymoon.

It was amazing and we saw some fantastic nature. This is from our first day hike.

The Baden Powell trail through Lynn Canyon.

Place was really cool and was my first taste of Pacific Northwest nature.

Loved it!
