Jade Con babee

Ah, a first… my first Jade con blog. I’m pretty sure that if I were doing this with a little less YOW in my system, I’d make more sense. Or maybe not. :D

Games night was as usual, in-ter-es-ting. If playing something with the unlikely name of Killer Bunnies falls under the “interesting” classification. Interesting might be an inadequate descriptor – baffling might be more accurate.

At the moment, we’re in the Dark Sider Suite watching a BBC show called Spank Inferno. Or something. The male lead is quite pretty, though perhaps dim. He’s just told a woman she has 4 breasts. She of course is scandalized and he is trying to – unsuccessfully, I might add, trying to dig himself out of the mess he’s gotten in.

I’m not sure I can find this show, but I think I *will* be trying. :D

It seems the name of the show is “Vegetarian Spank Inferno.” I was mistaken. Again. Now, I’m informed that the EPISODE is VSI, the SHOW is “Coupling.” Quite the play on words.

Well, I am going to go back and actually watch the show. Till later, The Truth is Out… Live long and … May the Force Be With You.

Best Sir Dan Game EVER!

I believe I am the first JadeCon poster to post sober. I will probably, therefore, have the worst typos.

The Best Sir Dan Game EVER is Mystery Date. Those of us old enough to remember the 70s might remember the non-SW version, where you open the door to reveal your mystery date. In this case, it might be Luke, Han, Bel Iblis, or… Salacious Crumb???? Oooookay. But watch out! You just might get … JAR JAR!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! See which of these dreamboats will help you on your date to Destroy the Death Star, Distract Jabba, Organize the Rebellion, or Escape Imperial Detention. It’s, like, groovy!


Yes…it’s true. I, Sithspit, schlepped. What can I say? Mary Franklin seduced me to the solid phase of H2O side of the Dark Side. It wasn’t too bad. But Deet can suck eggs…I still ain’t schlepping for her. She threatened me with bodily harm and she’s not even my apprentice. :-P

Hm…my Double-Bladed Sith from Mary’s Bar is empty….must find a refill.

Lusers kick ASS!

I was going to make fun of Liz for posting that entry under Dunc’s name but then Dunc had to go and fix it. Stupid Drunc Dunc. Also, the Lusers are going to SPANK Vegetarian Spank Inferno tomorrow. I mean today. The clock says it’s past midnight. Because we have SPIRIT and CHEERLEADERS! And very possibly pom-poms.

(Incidentally, I am drunker than Liz but not as drunk as Dunc. At least I’m still coherent enough to correct my typos.)

Vegetarian Spank Inferno

This weekend, many CJers will be introduced to Coupling, the BBC sitcom that gave us Commander Norrington. Those who do not avail themselves of the opportunity to watch the show on DVD will likely be utterly mystified by the stickers we are handing out that say, “I’m Giselle!” “No, I’M Giselle!”

And they won’t understand why Team Vegetarian Spank Inferno has the Best. Name. Ever.

I’d like to give a shout-out to all our friends on the starwars.com boards who wouldn’t/couldn’t come. See what you guys are missing??

Also, Dunc (whose name I first typed as “Drunk”) is way drunker than I am. I will work on rectifying that.

Live from JadeCon

It’s night one of JadeCon and we’re all wound up. We just got back from Games Night, where my team kicked ASS at Naboo (Taboo.) In what other crowd could I say “She’s dead, we hate her!” and people’s first guess is Callista? Who isn’t dead! Great fun was had by all. I love Naboo.

Profound I’m not, but I try. I just downed one of Mary’s drinks in five minutes. I’d like to see you blog half as well, when this drunk you reach.

Tomorrow is the Galactic Games. GO LUSERS! We will prevail; we are legion.

BREAKING NEWS: Not only is James (Sithspit) attending his first GenCon, he has just fetched his first bucket of ice. Life is good. Pass me another drink.

Movie News

Alien vs. Predator ruled the box office last weekend. Huh.

AICN has a scoop that Sam Raimi – hot off Spiderman 2 – and his homies are in negotiations for an Ash vs. Freddy vs. Jason film. (Hollywood Reporter confirms.) This vs thing is really getting out of hand… but how can I say no to more of that snarky demi-god of horror, Bruce Campbell? Not being impressed with the Spiderman franchise, some Evil Dead action would be a welcome respite from the inevitable Spiderman 3: Again With The Whining.

Tom Cruise will star in a new version of War of the Worlds.

Get a behind the scenes look at Serenity.

The future of science fiction

Popular Science wonders if technology is moving too fast for sci-fi.

If that’s the case, where is my floating car? Sci-fi has always assumed that changes happen faster than they do in life – it’s the small things that change fast. We have cell phones that make Spock’s communicator look bulky, but we still haven’t managed to get a man on Mars. And every new invention breeds new possibilities. Could something like Cory Doctorow’s Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, a novel referenced in the article, be written before the internet? Doubtful.
