Happy Halloween

I hope everyone has had a great Halloween. Mine has been a bit on the slow side. Work has been a little busy so I ended up just staying home tonight. Watched a couple of movies, played some City of Heroes, and took care of a some odds'n'ends.

The first movie was The Night Strangler starring Darren McGavin. That and the Nightstalker (and the whole Kolchak tv series) are part of my usual October viewing.

For the second movie I went for something I haven't seen in a number of years, Love at First Bite. While it is difficult to claim any movie is the best ever made given the number of different genres and styles out there I believe it is safe to say that his one is easily the best movies starring both George Hamilton and Richard Benjamin.

As for City of Heroes; the annual Halloween celebration is ending soon. I got in some last minute trick-r-treating and did some missions to begin moving Underpants Lad back to hero after his brief career as a vigilante.

I think for next year I'll have to come up with an elaborate costume. That gives me 365 days to come up with something cool.

That time of year again!

It's that time of year again! Time for the Halloween Event on City of Heroes. All of the cool stuff from previous years is still around plus great new content for 2011.

Over the last few days Underpants Lad, Technobabe, and a number of my other characters have been trick or treating, fighting zombie hordes, and defeating supernatural invasions of Paragon City. Tonight I hope to make my way to Dr. Kane's House of Horror.

I've also been collecting the Halloween salvage and spreading it out across all of my characters so that they can all eventually unlock their extra costume slots. Much of that salvage is very cheap at Wentworth's in game, now just costing a few hundred influence instead of 50,000 or more. A good example of how supply affects prices.

Just wanted to remind people this event was going on now, ending around November 2nd or so. Now that City of Heroes is free to play it might be a good time to check it out.

Third Sentence Thrusday #11

Third Sentence Thursday

"So far as I can recollect I have always been a man, a man of about thirty." A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

These is more to John Carter than just astrally projecting to Mars/Barsoom. He doesn't seem to age and doesn't remember his childhood. This could possibly be influence from Edwin Lester Arnold's Phra the Phoenician, another un-aging character.

Here's how Third Sentence Thursday works:

1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence to Sniffly Kitty's Third Sentence Post for this week.
