Seeing as it's as official as it's going to get...

The passengers and crew on board Flight MH370

Also, and it's so strange to recall, but Fred eFfin' Phelps was formerly a Civil Rights lawyer and Freedom Rider.
No story on why he turned to the dark side, but that's one pretty mixed legacy.

The explanation I heard recently was that he was only in it for the money. Also, being liberal in one respect doesn't prevent you from being conservative in others. Remember how most of the Democrats in the South switched to the Republican Party? Here in NZ we had members of the left wing Labour Party bring in extreme right wing policies before cleaving off to form a hard right wing party of their own.

The saddest thing I heard about Fred's death was that former members of the church were not allowed to visit him on his death bed. Even though Fred and his daughter had apparently also been excommunicated from the church. That shit's just low.

We're finally getting The Incredibles 2

Oh, and a third Cars movie, but y'know... The Incredibles 2!

I'm not a big enough fan/player of 40K to wax too poetic, but to this day I still scratch my head that there were no Skaven in Necromunda Huh?.

True, but there are space rats - the Veer-Myn - in Warpath, and hopefully soon Deadzone.

As for the Tau, they're plenty evil. They're just a lot more subtle about it. See how they deal with a native human population in Dark Crusade.

Have you tried Mantic's Deadzone SF skirmish game?

I went hard on that particular Kickstarter. The game is indeed gloriously fun, and I'm already setting aside space on my table for the long-awaited Forge Fathers.

Some people complain that Mantic are simply ripping off GW. My answer to that is 'And?' If they want to make space dwarf bikers, I'll gladly give them my money.

"Wild Bill" Guarnere.

And now I want to watch Band of Brothers again.

As I understand it, they're moving to Latin names as they're easier to copyright. Don't think we'll see the Space Marines become Adeptus Astartes any time soon, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did happen.

The best comparison I've seen for the new vehicle is the one that puts its front end next to Bebop from TMNT. Very similar.

EDIT: Boom!


Here, we've pretty much given up on current 40k. Some are tempted to go back and play 3rd Ed again, but mostly we're just using our old Warhammer Fantasy armies to play Kings of War. Much more entertaining.

..Wait.  NZ HAS AN ARMY!?

It gets better. One of their marketing pitches is that you get to play rugby (and score tries).

In fact, we like it so much, we not only manufacture the Austeyr here, we've actually designed the next generation of it

I call shenanigans. That gun does not come with an integral bottle opener.

[ SPOILER ] uses a Steyr AUG, which is a common bad guy weapon.

I guess that makes the NZ Army the bad guys Wink

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Uprising

Linking the series to Winter Soldier sounds like a very good thing to me.

Christopher Malcolm - the original Brad Majors, Saffy's gay dad, and Rogue Two in The Empire Strikes Back.

I've only seen him in Ab Fab and Empire, but my mum got to see him in Rocky Horror back when it was just a stage play.

I'm really hoping Iron Man 4 has the Mandarin's return.

Odds of an Iron Man 4 are slim at best, while the Mandarin is getting a one-shot on the Thor 2 disc.

There are a few explanatory videos on YouTube. The short version is they're a group of galactic heroes who travel through space fighting bad guys like the Badoom and some bloke named Thanos. They're less 'super' and more 'enhanced'; a mix of gadgets, cybernetic enhancements, and training.
