  1. Hi RAW comics lovers!

    A few weeks back, Hasko posted on his Insta account a good looking teaser for "Monster vibes from the monster dimension", a psychedelic Paranormal Playboy comics from Phil Mucci. I got intrigued... and now I have my copy! With a variant cover by the italian horror artist Emanuele Taglietti. Beautiful. A melting pot of the best topics. Can highly recommend it:

  2. Here, we're ending our second week of full containment. The kids are OK, we're doing school work in the morning and we play in the afternoon. Both are very patient. I'm paying attention to have a different rhythm during the week and during the weekend. Last week we both worked 50%, which was really challenging: we had a permanent guilty conscience of either being non reachable for colleagues and not being fully there for the kids. Since Monday I'm on technical leave, working only a few hours in the evening. It makes things much easier... I see us as very fortunate: we have a flat (large enough) to spend the at least 5 weeks without problems. We have enough food (everything is normal out there), a roof, enough games and enough to read. I am really hoping that all of us will come out of this ok.


  3. Hmmm, depends on the age of the kids/young adults. I can highly recommend the cartoon "Long way north" (2015) In 1882, a young Russian aristocrat goes on an epic adventure to find out what happened to her grandfather and save her family's reputation.

    I saw it just a few weeks ago and it's captivating for young and somewhat older people 😊

  4. And here's the poem by Emily Dickinson:

     

    After great pain, a formal feeling comes -
    The Nerves sit ceremonious, like tombs -
    The stiff Heart questions "was it He, that bore,
    And "Yesterday, or Centuries before"?

    The Feet, mechanical, go round -
    A Wooden way
    Of Ground, or Air, or Ought -
    Regardless grown,
    A Quartz contentment, like a stone -

    This is the Hour of Lead -
    Remembered, if outlived,
    As Freezing persons, recollect the snow -
    First - Chill - then stupor - then the letting go -

  5. TJ IS CONFIRMED FOR AUGUST!!! Firstly: great news for you guys in the UK! I am so happy this event is postponed, not cancelled.

    Secondly for us outside of UK it means... let's start to plan 😁 I found the idea of sharing a rental apartment awesome. 


  6. ... was wondering how you're doing @Nicole? It seems you chose a wise time to switch from catering to digital expertise. You can work from home and are less subject to cancellations, right? I also recall you mentioning a move in the spring. I'm crossing my fingers that being confined currently helps you to prepare the move. Same for you @Geoff ... it must be challenging to run a company right now. My thoughts are with you. 


  7. *NO SPOILERS :-)*

    So I've finally read the book! It is unusual... but you've expected this I guess! The characters, the Buick and the various actions are so precisely described by S. King up to the slightest light beam and colour range that I have a very clear vision of what's going on here. I am impatient to see how the @wearerenegades vision will look like! On their "TJ birthday post", they mentioned the L.A. 3D space... letting me hope that TJ and co will regal us with a 3D version of the movie. I can really see how that would work and it would indeed bring so much! Crossing my fingers...

    Yep... But we had the chance to meet you and the rest of the cast! It was still a very nice weekend and I have very fond memories of it 😊

    Fingers crossed for August now 🤞

    Absolutely! Meeting you was a highlight last year. I might have mentioned it before: the chemistry was right from the start and I enjoy the electronic interactions we have until then. I really hope we'll meet again. 

    The feeling I described did all take place before the Con.

    I think I might have mentioned that I’m gutted

    FedCon 2019: I remember vividly this feeling of sinking into quicksand when I read that Thomas was cancelled, the fear was immediately present as my feet found no ground to stand onto but it took a few minutes for the hurting to start. How disappointed I was...

    Of course life goes on and of course we all have our own busy lives to live. Meeting TJ is just the cherry on the cake. But still it hurts. I'm with you RAWarriors.


  10. Bravo chère Gail!! I remember only maybe 1 or 2 days where you didn't enlighten this forum (and my day) with your witty comments so that's amazing! Happy birthday! 


  11. Awwwww... 😢 this Con is postponed to August 22-23... I am so truly sorry for all of you, I would've loved to hear your tales and see you RAWarriors on the pics. Considering the current situation it's a logical decision but it hurts all the same.

    Meeting TJ is decidedly not an easy thing. But is there something beautiful that is easy to reach?

    I hope you'll all have time (and TJ as well) in August.

    In the meantime, take the lock down seriously... cases are increasing exponentially if social contacts are maintained.

    the use of shadow and light working their way round various heavenly bodies (and I'm not referring to TJ here!!!).

    I like how you're a fan to the very tip of your fingernails! 🤣

    I did enjoy the true resurrection of Miller though and his internal struggle with 'the assholes' that were trying to control him!

    Oh that was interesting! The first time he glitched and shouted it really took me by surprise and I was sitting on the edge of the couch, very awake.

    I loved the way they built Ilus and prepared for s5, which will have a completly different atmosphere and I hope you'll like it better than s4 😉

    I'm still completely hooked to the series 😋 Nicole also mentioned something cool would happen in S5. I believe "when the shit gets real" was her expression, or was it yours ? 😁 so I have hope and I have TJ as a director to look forward to.

    I also bought Nemesis Game by the way, so that (by December), I'll be ahead of the series and will be able to follow the plot this time!

    I'm curious to see what you think about the book

    Well it will take some time because I'm reading From a Buick 8 currently :-) and I'm not a fast reading person...

    Especially regarding the Investigator and the way he dies at the end, which I found more moving in the book.

    Oh no! Another dying Miller that will turn me upside down ... can't wait to read that.
