This is the fifth day of the Observation Deck’s 7th Birthweek and I don’t know how else to introduce it.
Welcome to this completely non-themed* Thanksgiving edition of Creative Challenge. I don’t know if there’ll be more or less people around, but if anyone’s free & they’re interested I’d like at least 40 words about any of these images...
As if the saga of Boaty McBoatface wasn’t enough, Oldham Council in England are seeking a name for their new gritter. Suggestions so far include True Grit, Gritney Spears and Usain Salt.
In his Thanksgiving message to-day, Donald Trump concluded by saying, “Let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead.” It seems like it’s an allusion to the opening of Star Trek, perhaps unintentional, perhaps as a nod to his redirecting NASA funding away from climate change research and into space…
Join us, won’t you?
Still. If a big part of ODeck spends and awkward day with the family until they fall into a food coma, the rest of who have to wait another month to do that, thinks of you. And if you have nothing to be grateful for - at least be grateful your family is not one of these :)
Today, I recieved the latest update for one of my favourite party games, Cards Against Humanity, and it’s the biggest update in the game’s history and I figured it was time to not only review this bigger than big (and indeed, blacker than black) upgrade, but to look back and see just how far this game has come.
The Observation Deck was born 7 years ago this week and this is the fourth day of that week. In the US it’s Thanksgiving, or Yanksgiving as about 12 people in Canada call it every year before it sounds weird and they stop because it is illegal in Canada to make fun of Americans for things that are not their fault.
We took the family to see Moana today. Disney did a good job with it in my opinion. 3D was solid as well. I will say that Hei Hei borrows heavily from Bill The Cat. Really heavily.
Another two episodes today and both are very good. One another based around intrigue and conspiracy while the other a joking look at fandom
*Comes in still dressed for bed, sipping on coffee.* Yeah, this is my first day off in 5 days and in those 5 days was an 9-hour shift and a 7-hour shift so I’m tired. Let’s do book club!!
There’s a dialogue between two women, one perhaps a predator, the other a victim, and some of the dialogue takes the form of vivid, frightening dreams. It’s a good new Caitlin R. Kiernan story in the new Sirenia Digest that came out a few days ago called “The Line Between the Devil’s Teeth”.
At least if it’s PINK and Vantablack. Anish Kappor, who bought the rights to exclusively use the blackest black in art is now officially banned from using the world’s pinkest pink. I guess it doesn’t pay to make your artist colleagues angry by keeping such a nice toy to yourself. Not that there is actually any…
This book is probably tied for my favorite book out of DC Rebirth. In fact, it is one of my favorite books currently on the shelves right now. And not just because Greg Rucka, one of my favorite writers, is writing it; everything about the book, the art, the story, the characters, the pacing, contributes to make the…
The Observation Deck has its birthday, its 7th birthday, this week. This Birthweek. This is part 3 of a series of asking questions of the denizens of this den.
Guys! I think I figured out why 2016 has been so horrible!
It’s Killer Frost time! Will Caitlin become evil? Nope. At least not permanently. Will they find a last time solution? Almost sure before the Crossover event. Will it make sense? Not likely! Come react.
If you follow How It Should Have Ended (HISHE from here on out), you saw that Batman discovered the favorite watering hole of all of your favorite baddies at the end of Suicide Squad HISHE. What happens when The Gosh Darn Batman decides to walk through the front door to finish it once and for all? Let’s watch and…
