Dunno when I'm playing the new Saint's Row, but I made my Boss. She likes praising the sun, flipping people off and tea time.


Hard to find something to make my day, but some fun prints came in and this is a nice cover for an upcoming Star Trek comic. I guess Harry Kim and Miles O'Brien are cursed in the same way.


So, force me to fund schools that preach bigotry, make it easier to get shot and no bodily autonomy. Fuck SCOTUS. Illegitimate and rotten to the core.


Watched No Time to Die while on vacation last week. Feel it closed out the Craig Bond saga well enough. I loved Paloma's treatment as a character. Shame she has a very small part of the story. Just a fun character kicking ass (as James got his ass kicked)


Did the Golden Saucer quest at the last minute because for whatever reason I just don't feel like playing FFXIV til more cotent comes. The .0 and .1s are just too dry for my liking these days.


Very happy to see Crisis Core getting a remake, and even coming to Switch! Also glad I held back in seeing if Epic had a sale on FFVIIR, because the streamseemed like a good time to announce it. And they did!


Playing Shredder's Revenge on Game Pass. I have dibs on jumpsuit journalist April O'Neil!


All the cool demon girls like Baba is You. The Ishtar and Pixie stickers are from Laurencin on Etsy. There are others like Hua Po, Lilim and Fire Emblem TH ones, too.


Asked for pink-haired Aphrodite like in Hades, but with doves and teal eyes, got a dish-eyed anime girl getting eaten by a white murder penguin. She seems okay with it.


Last Tarot post will be up tomorrow. Just have to do some edits. Also lost one image to the aether so I had to redraw. May do more tarot prompts in the near future. I have lots of cards!


Starfield looked okay. Not super-hyped, but it will scratch an exploration itch to be sure. Just flabbergasted they're still using that busted old game engine.


Tarot post didn't get done in time for MS stream, but i wanted to confirm Todd will say what Seymour asked about.


I asked an AI for Breath of the Wild... not bad, actually.


Should have the final tarot post ready tomorrow or Saturday. Needed to do some personal stuff. Not stressed out, just figuring out where life changes go and how it affects the apartment, really. Kind of a Marie Kondo phase.


On something of a mythology reading binge. The ancient Greeks explain the moon's orbit as Artemis chasing Selene. The moon's orbit is powered by lesbians.


Some people want a Code Veronica because they love Claire. They forget about awful Steve and the antagonists are and how Capcom just forces Chris Redfield where no one wants him.


There were 22 tarot readings in all for this year's predictions. Breaking that up into three posts. I was gonna include dice rolls, too, but it ate up lines. I will disclose that Zalno got a Nat 20.


I knew nothing about Barbarella or Dejah Thoris before reading their crossover book. It was a cute, funny and emotional read, particularly since I read a Dejah book in between. Good sci-fi/fantasy story with Trek-tier dialog. Lotsa technobabble.


Watched Lori Petty fall for a Vulcan, kiss a girl and also a kangaroo man this weekend. Pretty sure modern Harley Quinn was modeled after her, because I could see Margot Robbie as Tank Girl.


Dunno if Horizon could carry a TV show. I wouldn't go with Netfix, at any rate. Actually, this recent rush to adapt games to shows and movies hasn't been great beyond Sonic and Pikachu.


Started work on the post. Won't say whose reading this is. Can't stress enough how lovely the D&D tarot cards are. Or how needlessly difficult WotC made the minor arcana to navigate.


New tarot decks came in. Both are very gorgeous decks, but as the D&D Tarot goes, its suit design is very inelegant and requires a guide or PDF to follow. Pretty to look at, though!
