Spirited Away :|


Kind of like some dreams:
weird scenes, sketchy dialog,
and a childish plot.

"I would like to take this opportunity and tell you how much we enjoy the Fluxx game. It's the most popular gift to give my friends & Family, I gave a way 7 already and I'm waiting for this shipment for my angry waiting list (8). As I live in Israel I had to translate the game to Hebrew and use stickers for the children who don't know English yet and didn't like the fact that they are left out. It's a big big hit here ... even in Hebrew." -- comments accompanying an order from Liza of Israel

What's Going On? Back from the Inter-Galactic Space-Port

Well, we're back from Dragon*Con (or the Inter-Galactic Space-Port, as I like to call it) and we had an absolutely marvelous time. (We're still recovering from the trip, hence the lateness of this update...)

As you can see from these photos, Dragon*Con is held in a vast and visually stunning City of the Future, the streets of which are patrolled (at least for a few minutes on Saturday morning) by legions of storm-troopers and other fictional fighting forces.

We got a booth in the Exhibit Hall as usual, and business was great thanks to all the great demo work our Dragon*Con rabbits did for us. Thanks Y'All! And thanks especially to Russell Grieshop (our new Rabbit Coordinator) for all the fine organizing work he did. Check out the Rabbit Recap for lots of details and several photos!

Have a great week!


the story so far

Thought Residue
At Dragon*Con, I gave a Chrononauts deck to actor Tom Wilson (who played Biff in the Back to the Future movies) and got his autograph on a Sports Almanac card! (The plot of the second film centers around Biff giving a younger version of himself a Sports Almanac from the Future...)

"With the Mission Launch, the group agrees on an official Mission Launch Time and then everyone works together to achieve the objective. E.g. the Launch Coordinator says, 'we have all agreed on a Mission Launch at 5:15, which is in 20 minutes. At 5:15 we will leave for the movie. Anyone who is not out the door at 5:15 has decided not to go.' The Mission Launch model is extremely effective when brandished unmercifully. All 'mission specialists' know that the launch time is serious, and therefore they all work together to achieve a perfect launch. Group stagnation disappears." -- John Cooper, in the GinohnNews, August 27, 2003
"The EPA has just admitted that they lied for all this time.... My friend Dan Collins, whose office is on Broadway, only yards up from the site, said he has not taken a good breath for two years. 'They tell me it's good and I know it's bad,' he said. This lying with the lives of the people of the nation is not solely the habit of Bush and his crew, although it is more widespread and being done in so many cases by so many of their people that it looks like a generation of liars. This war with Iraq started with the full government standing right up and looking you in the eye and openly lying about why we had to invade Iraq immediately. Bush said the Iraqis had weapons of mass destruction. Why, they were starting to make nuclear bombs. He had a statement about this in his State of the Union speech. When it was shown to be a lie, Bush had people like Condoleezza Rice say, Why are you so worried about 26 words in a speech? That the 26 words were about nuclear weapons seemed beyond her. Out in the streets, you can scare people with only three words: 'Stick 'em up.' I sit here in New York and I don't believe one single solitary word of what the government says." -- Jimmy Breslin, The Air Is Thick With Lies
