  • "They actually work to keep reality from us, whether it's the truth of money in politics, the social costs of 'free trade,' growing inequality, the resegregation of our public schools, or the devastating onward march of environmental deregulation." ... "What Jefferson was applauding was the newspapers' capacity as a forum for debate (and sometimes slander), not exposé." ... "Even an excellent newspaper carries only a few articles each day that could honestly be said to nurture the democratic way."

  • "When a young man is confronted with his mortality, he takes a cross-country road trip on a vintage motorcycle. One Week tells the story of Ben Tyler (Joshua Jackson), in his mid-twenties, who flees from the confines of his life—an impending marriage, a job he’s not entirely happy with and a recent diagnosis—in order to attempt to live more fully. What starts off as an ill-defined venture soon morphs into a quest for the West Coast."

  • Mazes & Minotaurs is an indie role-playing game by Olivier Legrand. It aims to create a game which is what Dungeons and Dragons would have been, "if its authors had taken their inspiration from Jason & the Argonauts (yes, the 1963 movie with all the cool Ray Harryhausen monsters) and Homer’s Odyssey rather than from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings or Poul Anderson’s Three Hearts & Three Lions."[1] The materials purport to be reprints of publications from the 70s and 80s; they are available in the '1972 original rules' and the '1987 revised rules'. In reality, the '1972' rules were released in 2006 [2] and the '1987' rules in 2007. The '1987' rules parallel 1st edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, with a 'Players Manual', 'Maze Masters Guide', and 'Creature Compendium', instead of a Players Handbook, Dungeon Masters Guide and Monster Manual. The '1972' rules parallel earlier Dungeons and Dragons publications.

  • As most of you probably remember, the year 1972 saw the release of MAZES & MINOTAURS, the first ever-published fantasy roleplaying game, opening a new era of heroic adventure and mythic odysseys… Fifteen years later, in 1987, Legendary Games Studio published a fully revised, streamlined and expanded version of M&M (which became known as Revised Mazes & Minotaurs or RM&M for short) in the form of three core books (the Players Manual, the Maze Masters Guide and the massive Creature Compendium) and a fourth optional book (the M&M Companion), all with full-color covers and quality B&W interior art.

The Watchmen (movie)

I give it a solid thumbs up. Went to see it with 2 Watchmen virgins and fan from when they sold the original issues back in '86. Everyone liked the movie. I was afraid the Watchmen virgins would end up getting lost without having read the book but it held up.
