three random thoughts

  • During the fifties through to the early eighties wrestling on TV basically served as infomercials for the live events.  Cable and pay-per-view changed that formula.  But I think maybe a wrestling promotion in a large metropolitan area could make that formula work again by posting matches to youtube advertising the house shows.
  • Today I walked past a nail salon.  All the middle-aged ladies getting their nails done were watching a Bruce Lee movie on a big-ass flatscreen TV.  The universe is a little awesomer than I thought it was.
  • I tried AdventureQuest for a few days. It seems to be a perfectly adequate simulator for the least interesting parts of D&D.  Anybody got a recommendation for a browser-based D&D type thing-a-ma-bob with some overland exploration and/or dark, dingy dungeons?
