This is Jen (silvertabby), Daniel's girlfriend. Im really at a loss for words right now, but Daniel is driving down to Alabama tonite to bury Kenny in his parents back yard (a 13 hour drive). He asked that if anyone wanted to, feel free to call him - especially during the night while hes driving. If you dont have his number, I will be more than happy to give it to you. Im just at a loss for words.
I generally have mixed feelings about my childhood-nostalgia enhanced memories being sold back to me. I have even more reservations regarding my childhood cartoons being made into movies... Either they're fantastic revivals that embody what I loved about them updated for the modern day, or utter crap. This one I may have to see (though I wasn't originally going to).
I'm sure some of you have heard of this before, but I just found out about the internet musical “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog” ... Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day. Written by JOSS WHEDON.
“It’s the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to.” Says Whedon.
“Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” will star Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer, Felicia Day as Penny and a cast of dozens.
MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (AP) -- Gary Gygax, who co-created the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons and helped start the role-playing phenomenon, died Tuesday morning at his home in Lake Geneva. He was 69.
He had been suffering from health problems for several years, including an abdominal aneurysm, said his wife, Gail Gygax.
Gygax and Dave Arneson developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice became a hit, particularly among teenage boys, and eventually was turned into video games, books and movies.
Gygax always enjoyed hearing from the game's legion of devoted fans, many of whom would stop by the family's home in Lake Geneva, about 55 miles southwest of Milwaukee, his wife said. Despite his declining health, he hosted weekly games of Dungeons & Dragons as recently as January, she said.
"It really meant a lot to him to hear from people from over the years about how he helped them become a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman, what he gave them," Gygax said. "He really enjoyed that."
Dungeons & Dragons players create fictional characters and carry out their adventures with the help of complicated rules. The quintessential geek pastime, it spawned a wealth of copycat games and later inspired a whole genre of computer games that's still growing in popularity.
Funeral arrangements are pending. Besides his wife, Gygax is survived by six
My office is very hot today, due to the fact that it is unseasonably warm outside. The building has had the heat on, and it takes time to adjust to the change. Once it does adjust, it will be cold again outside, and we will freeze.
