Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts

The 2011 Warren Ellis documentary Captured Ghosts is now free to watch on Youtube. As someone who started with Lazarus Churchyard in issue 1 of Blast it does make me feel rather old. (As does the sight of Taliesin Jaffe with an unshaved head.)

Not remotely safe for work. Goodness me no.

The Grant Morrison documentary by the same director, Talking With Gods, is soon to follow.

Seasons versus weather versus climate versus change

Ah, the summer solstice, marked by the central heating only coming on for half an hour overnight.

Buffy: The Reckoning

Issue one of Buffy Season Twelve: The Reckoning is out now. It’s been a year in-universe since the previous comics season, and while it was apparently a quiet year, things have happened.

Delta Green

My Delta Green Kickstarter slipcase arrived about fifteen minutes ago. The PDFs are on Bundle of Holding.

More Star Trek in development

Possibly a lot more Star Trek, with multiple ongoing and miniseries, including Starfleet Academy, an animated series, a miniseries about KHAAAAAN, and... the return of Picard?

Sitcom? Wraith chronicle? Why not both?

The BBC has a bunch of new comedy incoming, including Ghosts from writer Simon Farnaby about the spirits stuck in an old country house. (Due to a puffy shirt and waistcoat combo, the resemblance to What We Do In The Shadows may be stronger than intended.)

This weekend...

The Pride march was lovely, despite the rain.

The Film Festival open air cinema was rather more affected by the rain.

Atlanta

Okay, I know I’m late on Donald Glover’s Atlanta, the BBC just started showing it, but nobody told me about the invisible car.

Describe, Decide, Roll: a workable explanation of RPGs

“The goal is to hang out with your friends and act like weirdos together.”
