I do wonder if staggered release schedule hurt them as well. Sure, people would have complained about the cost if they'd release all three books at once, but drip feeding them isn't much better.

That's where Iron Kingdoms might actually have the advantage. Pretty much everything you need is in one book.

Just finished watching the season opener of Agent Carter (had to split it across two nights).

Want to know the worst thing about the series? We're only getting seven hours of it!

I bloody loved it (clearly). A good mix of sneaking around and kicking ass. Great cast. Great cars. Funky gadgets (the watch and typewriter were particularly nice).

SpaceX will be launching off in about 5 minutes, tune in if you're interested.

EDIT: False alarm. Damn actuators were having problems so it's postponed till Friday.

Luckily for us, Marvel are pretty good at getting their previews on YouTube as soon as possible (and without region blocking, either).

As for what's in the teaser of the teaser, there are brief shots of Rudd, Douglas, Stoll, and Lilly, mostly walking towards or away from the camera. Nothing too special.

Its designed to make you go watch the premier of Agent Carter.
Which is fine if you're in the 4% of the worlds population that are in the United States :-/

TVNZ has the rights to air the show, but no word on when that will be yet:

I'll 'have a word' to my guy on the inside and see if I can get a date out of him. I'm sure I can bribe him with an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic Wink

Christmas seems to be a time for attempts at humourous billboards.

As for Tom Coburn, what has he got to lose? He's retiring, and seems to be the honey badger of politics. The best response I've seen to his actions was the suggestion that they wait for him to leave the building, then shut all the doors and retake the votes he blocked. They all had massive bipartisan support, it would have been easy.

NZ has it's own version of eBay, called TradeMe. Like eBay, TradeMe allows users to sell their cars. Recently, a listing appeared on TradeMe that was, well, judge for yourself...

Hi two the people

up for sale is my much loved 1994 toyota hilux surf 3l turbo diesel 4wd it is a great turck will be sad to see it go i am selling it as i am looking to down size very tidy interior faw scratchers and bumps on the outside as expected for a 4wd serviced every 5,000kms ruc up to date gear box is average and it a good runner around

2 mouths ago i put 4 new tyers on it

it is sold as is as there is no aa report with the turck is was lost when i got the 4x4 so dont ask for it if people ask for it there will be blocked and roped to trademe

Naturally, users were suspicious of a car, sorry 'turck' for sale with no license plates or AA report. They tried asking for more information in the Questions and answers section, and the user's story fell apart. In response, they did what any well-humoured Kiwi would do and trolled the sh!t out of him.

Some of the highlights:

Q: Is there a reward for finding the lost AA report?
A: No

Q: How long ago where the number plates rotated to ensure even wear?
A: Don't know

Q: When was the flux capacitor changed?
A: Don't know

Q: Roughly how many bongs do you dabble in per day? And do you think this may have something to do with not being able to find that aa report? Have you looked where you keep your stash?
A: K

Q: Picture this, we recreate the 'I'm flying jack' scene from Titanic but with me and you on the Bonnet of your turck. But totally different, like down a steep hill and we both have Mexican hats and mostauches. We drive to top of a steep hill, put the turck in neutral and let it purr. Quickly get in position on the Bonnet and you yell to me 'Were flying dude!'. It will be magical
A: What

The Turck now has its own Facebook page, because that's how we roll in NZ.

I just got back from seeing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies at my local(ish) cinema. Here are my spoiler-free thoughts...

  • It doesn't feel like 144 minutes worth of screen time. Things move at a fairly rapid pace from the first scene.
  • Yes, it deviates from the story presented in the book. By now that should be no surprise to anyone.
  • While it does differ, just about everyone ends up where they're supposed to.
  • We've already heard it, but Billy Boyd's song is an excellent way to close out the series.
  • Not all of the dwarfs get a chance to shine (don't worry, there's no Bombur: Barrel Warrior), but most of the supporting cast did.
  • Dain.

...I feel particularly bad for the bowler (Sean Abbott) who I would not be surprised if he never played cricket again...

Hughes' wife did make a point of sitting with Abbott while they were in the hospital, making it clear she felt no ill will towards him. The captain of the national team has also told him that he's happy to have him back once he's ready to return to the game. It's great to see everyone treating him with kindness, and maybe they'll turn their efforts to making sure helmets and the like provide proper protection from now on.

One of the guys at my gaming club has been playing in the beta. It doesn't have a warband creator yet, but the game is still a lot of fun.

Looks like this will be another title that ends up getting money many of us would have happily spent on miniatures and rules from GW.

Curiously I live in a very wet state, and am a teetotaler myself.
Oh well. Always missing out on the fun. Cool

Someone needs to be the sober driver Wink
