R.I.P Terry Pratchett

I didn’t think I’d be writing another one of these so soon, but I do think that this man deserves our recognition, even if you didn’t like or read any of his work. A truly wonderful writer who created a magnificent world of weirdness and wonder in his Discworld series, he suffered from Alzheimer’s for the last seven years, before succumbing to the disease. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this time.

I think it’s best to let the man himself finish this post, so here’s my favourite quote of his.

It is often said that before you die your life flashes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living.

Cool new game featuring HM3 images

secret-agent-wars

Recently Grumpy Gnome Games contacted me for permission to use HeroMachine 3 images in their upcoming spy-themed gambling card game, “Secret Agent Adventures“. Naturally I said yes and I have to say, it turned out really well! If you’re an in-person gamer, check it out and let us know what you think if you end up playing it.

R.I.P Mr Nimoy, you lived long and prospered, and were a legend both to Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike.

Ideas wanted

Sooo, I am having a bit of writers block at the moment and can’t think of anything to write about presently. When I get like this I turned to you for your suggestions. What would you like me to write about for tomorrow’s post? Give me your suggestions. The topics I normally write about are :

Anime Talk – Anything anime ( if I know about it anyway ), not so much on Manga as I don’t read it but if I find something interesting I will discuss it.

Bad Super Costumes – pretty self-explanatory, if there is a costume in comics, super movies, heck even anime and manga that I think is bad it gets discussed here, though I haven’t done one of these in a long long time.

Poll Position – Basically I pick a subject like what Spiderman costume is better, or who would win in a fight between X and Y and put up a poll for you to vote on. Again I haven’t done one of these in a long while.

Kaldath’s Corner – I write about any old thing that piques my interest that doesn’t fall into one of the categories above.

 

So as I said I can’t come up with an idea to write about this week so make me a suggestion and hopefully one of them will break this writers block. If not I apologize in advance for not writing anything of interest this week!
