FACEOFF: Final 4!!!

Well, if you can count, you know I'm already over by one.

1) Daran Holt isn't here any more. He went out on a sorry robot, but it was his first one, so we won't hold it against him too much. He had some great builds. He'll be missed. 

2) Let's see if any of my predictions were right... 

So I said George was great. He's still here.
I said Tyler and Niko were both very strong. Boom! Still here.
I said Rashaad and Daran :( were the two best, but was leaning more towards Rashaad.
4 out of 5 ain't to shabby.

Now—(coughing, clearing throat)—I did say Chole was my orig favorite to win, though I added "we'll see" and since I haven't posted anything since then, well, I was right to add the disclaimer on the end.

3) I don't think Graham should've gone out on his Mole Man. Also, I didn't think his Mad Scientist was bad either. If you've ever seen Akira, then you'd see how the Mad Scientist with the long nasty arm resembled that Anime and many others. OH WELL.
4) I liked Niko's Industrial Robot, even if I'm the only one. :)
5) While I like Daran and was said he went, if he had to go, he should've gone for his Freak of Nature makeup. 
***The whole "Mutant" thing, didn't feel Mutant/X-Men at all, as it was meant to. Everyone's felt like an animal/insect human hybrid. Only Niko and Daran's, though his failed, felt like a Hero/Villain Mutant. Hell, Rashaad's later robot looked more like a Hero Mutant than his Freak of Nature makeup.***

6) I think I had issues with all the Vampires from the last episode, but that's just me.
How do you think their upcoming Werewolves will work with their Vampires since I'm thinking each of those V-types are without a corresponding native Werewolf?

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

The NaNoWriMo Diet—Guest Post: Michael R. Fletcher Author of Beyond Redemption

  The NaNoWriMo Diet

It's tempting to let this devolve into a humor piece and talk about my love affair with whiskey and how sometimes, when my brain won't shut-up and let me sleep, I bludgeon it into submission with liberal doses of Jameson. But no. I'm gonna keep this serious. Well, mostly serious.

My suspicion is that successful writers all have at least a little OCD. Who else would sit for hours on end mashing away at the keyboard with their face? What, you don't type like that? Weird.

Smarter writers (or at least those capable of obsessing over more than one thing at a time) will pay attention to their physical and health-related needs as well as their daily word count. Unfortunately I'm not one of those. I can either obsess about my health or work on a book. In the past I would write a book and then, in the time between writing and editing, exercise like mad in an attempt to shed some of the gained pudge. I used to joke that I gained ten pounds with every novel …


I have seen it. Better than expected.
