Alliterates and Aegypt

Saturday night's Aegypt game went very well, with the party making huge progress and facing one brush with complete annihilation. Lesson learned: Even if Set's typhonian beast comes after you, don't annoy Set in his own temple. I'm enjoying both the way the party is grappling with the main plot as well as the odd little side treks that inevitably come up with a group this large.

Yesterday was the monthly meeting of the Alliterates, and most of it was industry shop talk that I can't repeat. But I'll just mention that we talked about Goth surf music (and related things such as Zombina and the Skeletones, esp "Meteorite").

We also briefly touched on the film The Raven with Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, and a young Jack Nicholson. Grubb Street claimed that this movie inspired Gary Gygax when he was writing the D&D magic system. I dunno, the whole thing looks super-cheesy, but it's a magician-horror-adventure-comedy with some actors I like, directed by schlockmeister Roger Corman. How can I go wrong?

I love Zombina and the Skeletones!

At least, I love the one song of theirs that I have on MP3: "Nobody Likes You (When You're Dead)".

It's way too catchy....

Boyo, you've got to expand your movie watching. Bump the Raven to the top of your Netflix queue, eh? ;)

Yeah, that's a good one too. That link has about 10 songs of theirs, which I guess they're giving away online.

I think there's a new album as well.

Muahahahahaha!
