    Those all sent me down a beautiful rabbit hole until I found this: https://youtu.be/8pza7f2uXI4

    It's not that either of us thought it was bad or anything, quite the contrary, the material is treated Shakespearean, but like I said it's a bit staid. If you're looking for a sober and serious dramatic treatment, this is about as high brow as it gets... but it didn't provide a lot of narrative...

    Dune - BOOOOORRRRING! Maybe in a theater the visuals would take it to another level (but maybe not, everything looked orange or sterile, and strangely cold for a purportedly hellishly hot place), but they managed to take a story they needed to split in two and make it feel like nothing happened...

    What Are You Playing?

    Nope, PS5 and PC precisely because crossplay isn't a thing, but I'm not even playing on PS5 anymore. It's Diablo II for Christ's sake! Yeah, I'm tired of dying, and more than randomly, so I'm finally grinding the Nightmare Council in Travincal for gems, gear and cash because I plan to outfit...

    What Are You Playing?

    Diablo II Resurrected - Well, Metroid Dread certainly sounds cooler than this old game, but I digress... One thing I'm experiencing, when I can log in via the queue, is the game is much harder than I remembered, and I played it again only a few years ago to make a lvl 94 IK Barb and also beat it...

    What Are You Playing?

    Diablo II Resurrected - Grinding my way through Nightmare with my half-assed Frenzy barb, hoping to polish him into something that can solo Hell (though Act III Nightmare is already getting pretty uncomfortable, but then the Flayer Jungle always is, so we'll see). I think I'm ultimately going to...

    I forget to mention, just for uncle David, I watched in the blackness of night on the biggest screen in the house with a bottle of Moscato. Best I could do for this big screen experience... that undeniably feels smaller than the show for obvious reasons. Yep, uncle June was always half an...

    I too enjoyed The Many Saints of Newark, even though, or maybe because, it's kind of a hangout movie without much forward momentum or vital plotting going on. The thing that most qualifies is the rise of black organized crime independent from the mafia, but it's a tonally weird story of fighting...

    Wow, first day viewing! I'm jealous, definitely going to check it out when we can get away from the kid for a couple hours.

    Episode 364

    Certainly not after Femto, and I think there was any number of permutations in play (as we like to discuss after podcasts sometimes, and as you probably do with Walter regularly =). Slan was already revealed to be vulnerable, Conrad and/or Ubik make sense as an escalation from that, and I just...

    Berserk's Unresolved Plot Threads

    I want to unpack all this in a bigger analysis post on the subject when I have the time, but instead of focusing on what will never be, I'm amazed that, while it wasn't a designed ending, Berserk's final 20 or so episodes happened to check an incredible number of boxes necessary for a...

    Episode 364

    It definitely foreshadowed playtime.

    Episode 364

    I'm not certain this wouldn't be the time Guts actually speaks before he swings, because these circumstances are so bewildering they demand explanation, and because Guts has already shown a lot of growth when it comes to waging war on Griffith (which he just reflected on again in the last...

    Episode 364

    Yeah, it could be as simple as an "elf-like od" being a less lazy way of saying, "relax, he's cool" in Berserk, or the kid could be the fucking anti-Antichrist/messianic savior/chosen one, aka "superior being", destined to bring about Griffith's downfall (maybe he's more directly critical to...
