#R2BC Thursday’s #GoodNews

As a sci-fi and fantasy fan, I know I am not alone, in feeling a little frustrated in how slow my favourite genres have been to keep pace with social change. It’s ironic that genres which, so often, give us the ability to explore sensitive social issues can so often drag their feet on issues […]

X-Files Outfoxed?

As a Geek I will admit to many fandoms and one of my longest addictions has been as an X-Phile. The first 9 Seasons have been welcome companions on many of my travels, including helping keep me together when I was working overseas. To this day I smile when I see Mitch Pileggi, William Davis or […]

#R2BC Saturday’s #GoodNews – AKA the New Friday for a Day

Apologies for missing R2BC yesterday but, with this having been half term, my priority has really been on my family. Today saw a lovely trip to Leeds Royal Armouries, which was made a huge amount of fun by the happening upon SWASH 2014 and in particularly a, fascinating, lecture about swordsmithing from Danelli Armouries.

@BattleSystemsTWS Taking #Tabletop to a different level

A rare occurence today. A random ad posted up in my Facebook feed actually coughed up something interesting and relevant. Now this is about wargaming and tabletop RPGs so if Videogaming is your thing…well watch the video as it’s damned interesting. I’ve been gaming for years, and few kids won’t have memories of playing with […]

#PacRim #Honesttrailer Dumbest Awesome Movie? Hell Yeah. Bring on the Sequel! via @Wired

Found this on Wired.com and have to say that I nodded with agreement and giggled all the way through (well apart from the bits where they didn’t pay attention to the plot explanations that were totally in the movie…honest) And I think you should too. 🙂
