    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I like this interpretation. Don't totally buy it, but I like it. I think the "most mundane interpretation" that you raised is probably what happened (I'll be the Doylist here; you be the Watsonian), but it is a fun little detail that creates cool new storytelling options. I like to think this is a Mary Read/Anne Bonny kind of situation, but your take is valid.

    I Wrote a Book!

    It is. I've tried the traditional publishing thing before, and it's a lot like cutting down a Douglas fir with a dead salmon.

    I Wrote a Book!

    Yep. I recently put the finishing touches on my first novel, and now I'm biting the bullet and publishing it. Only took five years. Abby Normal is an urban fantasy/horror story about Abby Henderson, a woman being hunted by a demonic doomsday cult, and the Deacon, the demonic cult leader who believes Abby can kick-start his apocalyptic plans for him. Along the way there's also some wizards, faeries, alternate dimensions, demonic possessions, and a heapin' helpin' of Anglo-Saxon paganism! Oh, it's also available for pre-order on Amazon right now. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084X6ZWRR OFFICIAL BLURB: Abby Henderson has lived her whole life under a dark cloud. When she was born, a demon called the Deacon claimed her family as his property. When she turned 13, she was traumatized by an ominous psychic vision. When she turned 14, her dad had a psychotic breakdown and tried to kill her.She’s just turned 25, and now people are dying all around her.This is all according to the Deacon’s plan. He believes that Abby is the key to a ritual that will unleash an ancient evil on the world, and he will stop at nothing to make sure that ritual succeeds.Now, Abby is in the fight of her life against an enemy that defies all reason. Together with her pious girlfriend, her magic-slinging ex-teacher, and a hotheaded Amazon with a machete, Abby will have to use every trick in the book to outlast the Deacon. Because if she can’t, her next birthday is going to be Hell.

    [MOC] These Romans are crazy..!!

    Oh my God. This is sheer perfection. It's been years since I sat down with an Asterix comic, and this MOC took me right back there. Absolutely spot-on. I love that you even included Fulliautomatix and Unhygienix. That's some major dedication, right there.

    Voltrahk; Rahkshi of lightning

    This is lovely. Ever since I got the 2016 Toa, I've been wondering if I could repurpose those CCBS waists to make G2 Rahkshi. I guess I now have my answer.

    Shiver My Timbers - Muppets Treasure Island

    One of my favourite films for years and years. Amazing recreation. Although, some of the editing on the animals was a little uncanny valley-esque for my taste. The octopus's eyes in particular looked sort of... murder-y. But other than that, it was amazingly faithful and really well-crafted.

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    I was stuck inside on a rainy day watching Gravity Falls and John Carpenter movies and, well... this happened...

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Honestly, I don't know where everyone suddenly got the idea that these are going to be minidoll sets. Call me old-fashioned, but I think it makes sense to wait until we've seen some pictures before running shirtless into the street wailing about the end of days. In my experience, rampant speculation like this based on next to no info is more often than not a fool's errand, so let's all take a deep breath and calm down until we've got something concrete.

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    This has been pretty much my line of thinking since I saw the first batch of photos. When I first got it, I thought the Funhouse Escape was the new gold standard for villain sets, and I still love it to bits, but adding it to Jokerland really opens up a lot of possibilities for a full-on Arkham City-style carnival of death.

    On a lighter note from last week, here's Muppet Treasure Island!

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    We're going a bit more serious this week with a closer look at Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    This week's film is not much of an adaptation per se, but it's got an interesting history of revision and alteration nonetheless. It's 1992's Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

    Hello and welcome to the Adaptation Nation...

    I regret that I have once again been out of the game for so long, but I'm back now with a review of the Raul Julia masterpiece !
