Testing the email updating of Blogger

Yeah, more boring testing from me to try to get things figured out to make my ability to deliver the random thinkings of myself to you.

I love this game! Monsterpocalypse is a collectible miniatures game from Privateer Press where you get to control giant Monsters and a small army to back them up in either destroying the city or saving it by destroying it.

It came out on October 10 and TOGIT has sold through 5 times more than it's initial order. Every 2 days Frank has to head back to our distributor to get more.

It is a game where you move dice between different pools to do different things. From spawn units to attacking to throwing your opponent's monster through a building. It is a strategy game to a point but the dice can make or break it. One of the best parts of it is that there are different tyes of dice you can earn. White dice have the chance to hit on three sides and three sides are blank; blue dice have 4 sides that you can hit with and 2 blanks sides; and red dice have only 1 blank side on them. You can earn Red dice by destroying building and killing enemies (and other ways), and you get blue dice in some attacks because your figure gets a bonus.

I have seen someone get into position to kill off a monster only to have most of his dice roll blank and his opponent picks up his monster and body slams him into a nuclear power plant, causing a the building to be destroyed and the enemy monster take a serious hit of radiation poisoning.

Check out the game at and I know that I am organizing tournaments at The Only Game In Town ( for Thursday October 23, November 8th and November 22nd. If anyone is in the area come down and check it out.


Upcoming Bacon Ice Cream Coverage

Diabolik here to update anyone who cares, and even those of you who don't, about what Bacon Ice Cream has planned over the next few months.

Rich and I are going to be heading to the Big Apple Con in New Y0rk City on November 14 to do some interviewing and talking to some of the guests. I am looking forward to this because some of my favorite comic artists are going to be there and i would love to talk to them on camera and get a sketch or two done for my potential tattoo portfolio.

The following weekend the entire Bacon Ice Cream crew is going to be hitting the VGXPO in Philly. I know we are planning on being there on the 21st and 23rd, we are working out the details for the 22nd.

We are also looking forward to attending Dreamation once again on February 19 through February 22 of 2009, and I have been invited to the Wicked Winter Renaissance Faire IV on February 20 through the 22nd. I know I am going to try to split my time between the two.

Once we get done with those conventions we wil be posting our recaps in our own blogs and the video and interviews we do on Perfect Score. If you are reading this through you can get there through the "Convention Coverage" link on the right and if you are reading this natively on Blogger you can get there by visiting

Expect more on these shows as we get closer and are gearing up for them.


First post of today

Diabolik here with his first opportunity to breathe in nearly 3 weeks. I had previously posted a rant of sorts regarding a bunch of shows that I had recently watched and I am back with a few more.

30 Rock - I ended up finding this show because of an article comparing Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip to 30 Rock. The article had stated that 30 Rock and Studio 60 both covered the same genre but 30 Rock did it better. I like 30 Rock, I love the character Alec Baldwin plays, but I think Studio 60 was a much better written show and it wasn't intended to be a comedy, but be a comedic drama about a the cast of a sketch comedy show. 30 Rock is a comedy about the cast of a sketch comedy show. I prefer Aaron Sorkin's writing style on Studio 60 to 30 Rock's odd quirky character writings. I have yet to see any of the 3rd Season of 30 Rock but I do look forward to watching it. If you watch the season in a large clump I think you appreciate the characters a little more than if you are to wait to watch them on a weekly basis.

My Own Worst Enemy - I have been chomping at the bit to watch this show since I heard about it. I love Christian Slater as an actor and I own just about everything that he has performed in. Hell I have a DVD copy of Gleaming the Cube in my portable DVD player right now. This show was a little clunky to get off the ground, but I think it was executed very well and I look forward to this week's episode. People should definitely check it out if they liked Alias or other spy-like shows.

Life - I had watched most of teh first season of Life on NBC's streaming website and I was hoping that it would be brought back for another season. I just finished watching the first 3 episodes of the 2nd Season and it did not disappoint. Charlie Cruise's quirky demeanor and quest to uncover the conspiracy against him keep me wanting to see the next episode.

Grey's Anatomy - I was watching the 2 hour special season premiere of this show last weekend with my girlfriend. She had not seen a single episode of the show and I have seen every episode of the show but she still got into it from the start without needing to ask a bunch of questions about what was going on. I think that is a good testament to the start of a season, if you can get someone to enjoy watching the show even if they never watched a single episode before. Unfortunately we did not get to finish the episode and I have it saved so that we can finish it and watch the next 2 episodes the next time we have time together.

Venture Bros - I can't remember if I talked about this show on my other post, and i am too lazy to go and look to see, so I will talk about it here anyway. UI had seen 1 Episode with Keith, and it happened to be the episode that starts in the middle of a story like it is continuation of another episode, and I was really thrown off. But now having watched all of Seasons 1 & 2 and the start of 3 all I can say is "The creators of this show are either geniuses or complete and total morons. I can't decide on which..."

That is all of the TV stuff that I have to talk about today. More stuff to come later....

A New Insanity Begins

Well, there was a welcome message up on here that Rich left. And of course he spelled Diabolik wrong. Go figure. But that is besides the point.

So I have been watching a bunch of television recently. I have been trying to give the new shows this season a watching so that I can say whether I like them or not.


90210: Why the fuck am I watching this show? And I watched 4 episodes of it. I hate it. Ooooo we are back at West Beverly High. Ooooooo some of the characters we remember are showing up. Oooooo Dillon has a kid. Who the fuck cares. I am done with this show. Don't wast your time.

Do Not Disturb: Now I like Jerry O'Connell and I did enjoy Carpoolers or whatever the hell that show was. This show is......meh. I think I laughed once. I plan on watching the 2nd and 3rd episodes and then decide whether the creator should be flogged or if he just missed the beat in the first episode.

Fringe: As I write this I am watching the 2nd episode of this show. I am on the fence. It is a paranormal thriller of sorts but it seems like the same formula JJ Abrams used to get people hooked on Lost. It seems like an X-Files wannabe show. The best part of it for me is seeing the guy from Dawson's Creek throw bitch fits.

Burn Notice: I love this show. I know this season is about to come to an end, but all in all it has been solid since Episode 2. First episode was ok at best, but the second hooked me. Hence why I will give a show a few chances. And Bruce Campbell is the best reason to watch the show.

Prison Break: Season 4. It has been the same formula over the last 3 season with a little rinse and wash. Adding a hacker to the group is interesting. Making Bellock and Mahone actually work with everyone is making it better. This is a show that I load in my PSP and watch in batches so that I can remember what is going on. Don't get me wrong...I like the show. I have been watching it since Season 1 Episode 1. Not like all those other posers who had to download it or catch it on the marathon to get into it. I just think we are getting to the point were it went from a minor conspiracy to this huge over-arching monstrosity that we need to pull the plug. Unless they do something crazy I think it is time to end this great show before it completely jumps the shark.

Gossip Girl: I like this show. I was originally just bored enough to try it but it caught me and I look forward to it every week. The plotting and manipulating of the upper class made me resent them and hope in my heart that Dan and Serena would get together and working things out. All in all it is a WB/CW teenage girl drama. But when you get Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) to do the voice of the all seeing all knowing Gossip Girl you get me. And I like girly shows. They tend to have hotter women on them and have better writing. Take Gilmore Girls. Fucking great show. Great dialog and comedy. Gossip Girl, not as much, but I am always looking for Blaire to make an ass out of herself.

Privileged: I must admit, I have no idea why I watched this show. It popped up on the DVR and I figured what the hell. I like the main character because she steps all over herself and says slightly inappropriate things, but the overall show is garbage. Yale edumacated aspiring writer/journalist gets hired to tutor 2 spoiled rich girls. Standard back-stabbing and hair-pulling. Not worth watching.

True Blood: Motherfucker. Anna Paquin with a thick ass southern accent and vampires? And she can listen to people's thoughts? Who the hell isn't watching this? The first episode was pretty slow, but i have hopes. I am told it is based on a book or series of books and I am going to go to the library and see if I can track them down.

House: Meh. Same old same old. I like the show and will continue to watch it, but sick person gets sicker. They treat sick person. Sick person gets better. Then worse. Then lightbulb and case solved. Make some of these motherfuckers die and maybe I will be interested. I was hoping for something so much more out of the Season 5 opener after the way Season 4 ended.

Bones: I love Bones. It is a well written show and is also loosely based on true stories. Somehow there is always a skeleton for them to deal with and not a dead body, but I love the way Bones and Booth interact and the way they play around with the sexual attraction between the two of them. Unfortunately Zach is no longer on the show after the Season 3 closer (or was it 4?) and his naivety and logic was always a great counterpoint to Hoggins conspiracy laced innuendos. Get the DVDs of the past season and catch up. Now.

The Shield: Holy mother of god. I recently watched all of the past seasons back to back to gear up for the final season of this fucking amazing show. I know everyone says it is a good show and all, but it keeps me hooked from week to week. And that is what matters. Making me want to be home watching it so I can get my fix.

Supernatural: Season 3 ended in such a way that you just wanted to scream "What? Why?" Season 4 kind of starts out the same way, but not for the same reasons. It took me 3/4 of the way through the show to finally see what I liked about the show from the beginning. Still, the hook at the end of the first episode.....fuck.

Sons of Anarchy: Another FX show that starts off fairly slow. You learn a little about the main characters, and them being in a motorcycle gang akin to Hell's Angels where they are gun running makes it a show that has a lot of potential. I like a lot of the FX shows and they seem to have different styles but they all seem right on that network. I would give the first episode (which is all I have watched so far) a 6 out of 10 with definite room to move up the ladder.

That is all I can think of that I have watched so far. I have a slew that I am looking forward to coming up over the next few weeks. Heroes, My Own Worst Enemy, Chuck (I am going to rewatch the first season sometime this coming week), Eli Stone (first season was decent and good in the lull of the writer's strike), Dirty Sexy Money (first season was amazing), Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy, Smallville (I know the 8th season already started, but I haven't watched the premiere yet), and Crusoe are all on my list of things to check out.

So that is my ramblings for today. A lot of tv like I said. I am also working on revamping and I hope people like what they see. Maybe I will work on actually rating some of these shows to see what ones were the best over the course of a week. Who knows? Who cares?

Thanks for watching the insanity grow.
