Woo Hoo! Aloha Adsense, Hola Amazon!

Well guys Adsense finally paid up.
Thanks to your help I was able to raise $107.00 for my Geek-Boy shopping spree.

I promise every single penny of that money will go to nothing but games, comics, books, dvd's, toys, or anything else that strikes my Geeky desire!

Car payments?
Bite me.

It's my patriotic duty to put these funds right back into the US economy. And I can think of no better way (other than a couple of lap dances)to do that than at my friendly neighborhood Comic/Game store!

Once again thanks to you all. I honestly couldn't have done it without you.

I'm replacing the Adsense adverts with Amazon. So if your gonna buy something from Amazon anyway, what the hell, buy it here.

Pulp Thursday

Want to escape for a few hours into a great website? Go here. The Tarzan section alone is worth the trip.

The Fanboy boards are all abuzz with rumour of Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan teaming up for a remake of Red Sonja - go ahead Google it.

Iron Sky is an independent film effort. I wish them the best as I raid them for cool pictures like this...

Tim Truman talks “Conan the Cimmerian”

Truman discusses the next round of Conan comics premiering this week.

The other cool "Lair"

It’s taken a few months, but the Midnights Lair pod cast is back on the air.
This is one of my favorite Pod casts that features commentary, reviews and new trends in gaming. If you are a gamer you really should be listening to Midnights Lair. The show is fresh and the guys have a great chemistry. And in between pod casts stop by the Midnights Lair Message boards. The boards cover all things geek – movies, games, comics, pop culture, and everything in between. Like the pod cast the Midnights Lair message boards are a favorite of the Evil DM.

Quote of the day.

I'm trying to gather a few friends for a one shot game of Savage Worlds.
I called one of my bud's - Mike, and I asked him if he still gamed?

His response: "No. But I think about it every goddamn day."


Mike is rolling up a character as I write this.

Fear Itself

Thursday nights at 10pm are now booked. There is a new show on NBC called Fear itself. It's sort of a "Night Gallery" for the new millennium. I understand it's from the same company that did the Masters of Horror series on Showtime. The opening show was very cool. The second episode was decent but this third one kicked ass! Seriously disturbing. And about as graphic as network TV can get. Put the kids to bed turn down the lights and enjoy.

Seven for Saturday

One of the coolest things about this whole writing gig for me is the research part. Long before I started this venture I was a used bookstore crawler. I'm seldom happier than when I'm climbing through stacks of dusty books looking for a long forgotten treasure. Today we went and hit up one of Sacramento's larger used bookstores. I never leave that place disappointed,and such was the case today.

Amongst the gems I found this afternoon were TWO Harold Lamb Paperbacks.

Losing myself in a Lost World

My Lost World of Hador (LWOH) Project is taking up quite a bit of my writing time.
Which is a good thing.
The ideas are coming along at a nice pace and so far I haven’t suffered any writers block. I’m about 25% into the project. When I can't actually write I’m trying to absorb source material for inspiration.

I’m reading a lot of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, adventure comics, Time/ Life books and I'm doing quite a bit of surfing on the net. The way Hador is developing I’ll be able to tackle both the “Lost world” and the “Sword & Planet” angles.

I read last week about Pinnacle Entertainment allowing publication of products using their Savage World brand, and the idea is intriguing. With World of Broadsword the focus was on Deep 7’s 1PG System, but since then, I’ve been leaning more towards producing content that can be used for any system.

Back in 1985 Hero games put out an excellent supplement for Lost World adventuring; it was called Lands of Mystery and was written by Aaron Allston. In it they gave conversion information for systems like Chill, Call of Cthulhu, and Daredevil. I’m toying with the idea of doing the same with LWOH.

I could use Deep 7 Dime heroes, open source efforts like Four Color, and ZeFRS, and possibly Savage Worlds. It all depends on how much hassle it all is, I’m more of a fluff guy than a rules cruncher. Of course the first thing is to get the manuscript written and then move on to what systems to apply it to.

The Swag-box has left the Lair!

Many moons ago the Evil DM hosted a contest. Thousands entered but only one person was victorious.
That person was Wulfgar.
In response to several graphic threats to my person from “She who must be obeyed” I finally sent out the “Swag box” O’ Prizes.

He should get the package by Saturday. next time I'll be sure to state :3-6 months for delivery.

Congratulations Wulfgar!

Here is what he won:

A PDF copy of The World of Broadsword.

A copy of Testament the D20 RPG from Green Ronin

A healthy run of Tarzan comics from Marvel and an assortment of the following titles:
The Warlord, Killraven-War of the Worlds, Arak-Son of Thunder, Ironjaw, Starfire (the Sci-Fi rebel chick not the superhero chick), Thongor, and a few others.

2 Red Sonja paperbacks, Demon night and Against the prince of hell

2 Sword & Sorcery paperbacks" The demon in the mirror and The eyes of Sarsis

A paperback of Brak the barbarian vs. the mark of the demons

A hard cover copy of Genghis Khan by Harold Lamb, collector’s library edition 1927

A trade paper back of Shadow Kingdoms by Robert E. Howard wildside press

A DVD set of Flash Gordon the animated series

A GI Joe commemorative key chain navy frogman

Not a bad haul if I do say so myself. And I do.

More action figure stuff!

The other day I posted some pics of the new Cops! figures from Lanard toys. Since then I've gotten on a bit of a 3 3/4 scale kick. I've run across a couple of items that may interest those of you who collect in this scale. I'm not the best photographer, so please excuse some of the fuzzier pics.

First off I found these little dinosaur goop containers over at a thrift store. they make excellent specimen canisters or just a funky looking addition to a lab or expedition.

"She who must be obeyed" has developed quite an eye for finding things I might use for my collections. The other day she ran across these in the Lego/Megabloks section at WalMart.

Peter Jackson meets the Mummy!

The Corps! Adventure Team guys spring into action.
