Another slow week (and John Carter)

Another slow week here at What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse...

What can I say, I'm busy with work, grad school, and getting Flying Swordsmen completed by the weekend.

That's right, folks, my RPG will be available for download, warts and all, this Saturday or Sunday (Korea time, which means those of you living in N. America may be getting it Friday night at the earliest!).  Assuming I don't get hit by a car or come down with pneumonia or something.  Actually, pneumonia might be good for the project, as long as I've got my notes and netbook at the hospital with me...

As for other content, I saw John Carter and really liked it.  Yes, they changed the plot and the characters for the screen.  No, I'm not exactly happy with the whole "reluctant hero" crap being used YET AGAIN by Hollywood, but at least this time it made sense within what they did with the story (unlike, say, the Clash of ht Titans remake) and the whole movie worked.  The CGI was good, the Tharks looked good, and so did the various 'monsters.'  The action scenes were well done, blah blah blah.  I'm not going to do a full review because I've actually been reading too many other reviews around the OSR blogosphere this week.  A little burnt out.  I'll save my reviewing for The Avengers or one of the other big summer blockbusters that are coming soon.

Now to get to work on Flying Swordsmen so I can keep that promise!
