Kickstarter: Muzzled the Musical

Muzzled the Musical

Never mind the premise, which seems both silly and awesome, the music is super catchy and the cast list is full of amazingly talented and funny people. Kevin Sorbo (Yes, Hercules/Captain Hunt), Lisa Foiles, Ashly Burch (Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’), Jeff Lewis (The Guild), several actors from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which I’ve never seen but is supposedly hilarious and awesome, and many more.

Free Write #73: Swiftly Tilting Mirrors

by on Jan.15, 2014, under Entertainment, Free Write, Writing

Free writing returns! Nothing regular, I just needed two-hundred and fifty words to keep my streak going on the magic spreadsheet. Todays story is inspired by the Twitch TV show A Swiftly Tilting Cameron, apart of the Loading Ready Run lineup of video game streaming. Cameron is currently XCOM: Enemy Within.

Swiftly Tilting Mirrors
By Nojh Livic

The mirror was affixed to the wall on the left across from her old locker. She ignored it. Was she the right word? Or was she now an it? Or a they?

She looked down her torso. That was a mistake. Old familiar curves were gone, replaced by broad flat metal. She knew that was only for the mission but it disturbed her.

Instead she focused on her arms. She flexed them. They obeyed her thoughts so it was easier to think of them as hers. But was it the arms that were obeying her thoughts or was she obeying their movements?

She wanted to look in the mirror but she couldn’t stand the idea of not seeing her face. Did they take that from her too in order to save the world?

“Let’s go Eli. We got another one in Africa.”

She thought she had volunteered for this. No that wasn’t exactly right. She had volunteered for the mission, for the world. This was needed for the mission.

She tightened the metal fingers into fists. She knew how much pressure she was squeezing into each digit but she couldn’t feel it.

“Iris?”

Eli “Iris” Dawson let go. Hefting her robotic form to its oversized feet, she lifted her impossibly heavy weapon, checked that the breach was clear with an audible clack, then laid it against her shoulder and turned to the faceless commander who had made her this way.

“Reporting for duty, sir.”

She didn’t need mirrors to blow up aliens.

This was her job.

Desert Bus for Hope starts tomorrow!

by on Nov.15, 2013, under Announcements, Articles, Entertainment, Videos, Visual Media

In case you weren’t aware, Desert Bus for Hope, the charity internet telethon where members of the sketch comedy group Loading Ready Run, play the worst video game ever made twenty four hours a day until people stop donating money, starts tomorrow!

Want more info? Here’s a nice video.

If past Desert Bus events are any indication, you can tune in for the next week or more at http://desertbus.org/ or on their associated twitch tv channels. It is always entertaining to watch no matter what time of the day it is (especially at the wee hours of the morning when part of the crew is half asleep).

So come watch, perhaps donate to the charity Child’s Play. It’ll be fun!

Comic Suggestion: Star Power

by on Sep.11, 2013, under Comic Suggestions, Comics, Entertainment

Star Power is a three-day a week comic written by the author of Dominic Deegan, Michael “Mookie” Terracciano, and drawn by Garth Graham, whose other work I don’t know but is an excellent artist.

http://www.starpowercomic.com/about/

Star Power is about a super hero in a science fiction setting, which is neat in and off itself. But that is not why I am recommending it to you. I’m recommending it to you because of the latest page, which is sadly a spoiler to most of the action of Chapter 2. So I recommend starting from the beginning, but if you need more proof, click here for Star Power: Vol 1 – Chapter 2 – Page 20: Right Call. I’ll warn you it likely doesn’t have the same emotional impact.

Aside from that, the comic has a baseline of aspects that just make it likeable, including varied characters of obvious depth, good levels of humor and drama. If I have one complaint it is how slow the story moves, even with a three-day a week schedule.
