The look on Richard’s face as he watched the movie…

CoverYes, it’s true. We made Richard watch 1973’s The Wicker Man. Well, actually John did as this was his pick. We’ll say this now about Richard’s reaction to the film- I think he probably liked it more than he would have liked the Nic Cage starring remake. Outside of that…

Welcome to Dragon Con Soon

This year has flown by so far, July is dissolving in the mists of time, and August is almost upon us. That’s a somewhat relevant fact for those of us going to Dragon Con as the official kickoff date of the festivities this year is Thursday, August 29.

Christ, this is very much some dark, scary reading. One aspect of the scary bit is the timeline. I’ve heard for a few years now some rumblings and outright accusations, but this covers a decade or more and is far darker than what I had heard. The thing that’s the most fucked up about that isn’t the timeline in and of itself, it’s more a matter of who he was at the time it was happening. Or, maybe the better way to say that is to say it as who he wasn’t.
