Ron's Latest Things

World War Z

Pretty good movie in and of itself, but it has nothing to do with the books - from the zombies being wrong all the way to the plot twist in act 3. I have no idea why they thought it could be called WWZ
UNC Charlotte Football 3 and 0!!
First three games of the season in the books with 3 great wins!
S*D Externals in Fading Suns
Started writing up some ideas I had to bring in the Star*Drive Externals to Fadning Suns
Real Steel

Pretty good, Ricky Meets Rock-em-sock-em Robots.
Con-Gregate 2014

Good start for a new con. Gaming was fun but needed more gamers.
Star Wars: Lords of the Black Sands Plot
Transcribed some old notes about this campaign. It could have been a good one.
Ender's Game

Damn Good movie! Enjoyed it very much!
StormCon 2014

Great atmosphere and energy at this con. Enjoyed all the gaming I did

The Many Thoughts of Ron

Ron's Movie Rant: The Lego Movie (2014)

July 28, 2014 Posted by Ron


My son got the Lego Movie after begging for it ever since it was in the theaters. He has watched it more time than I can count in the 2 weeks he has had it now. Just from the trailer, I got messages that I did not like but I gave it a chance. Although my first impressions were not entirely correct, there is still some lefist messages. There is also some very poignant messages as well.
From the start, Lord Business the bad guy bothered me. Making someone named "Business" screams antic...

Ron's Movie Rant: The Muppets (2011)

July 19, 2014 Posted by Ron


My wife complains that I find way to many messages in movies every time we watch them. And some make headlines, like the Frozen movie, and movies like that. Unfortunately, many simply role their eyes and continue to watch because they "just want to watch a movie" and don't care about the message. And that may be true but what about their subconscious? In the case of anti-Christian messages, Christian reviewers either don't see the messages or choose to ignore them because of the nature...

Jack is Back!

June 13, 2014 Posted by Ron


24: Love Another Day has hit the airwaves four years after 24 ended. A 12 episode "shortened" season of Jack Bauer and his bad-ass-ness. Is it still relevant. Will this shortened season encourage a reawakening of the show? Or is this a one off, a final goodbye from Jack? I guess we shall see.
Everything I am reading avoids the question of another season. They just talk about this being the plot of the failed movie and how it's great to be back. I truly hope this does well enough that they con...

Another weekend after Memorial Day

June 03, 2014 Posted by Ron


Another year passes and another weekend in May/June goes by.  I find myself a little less bitter but still holding resentment against those that betrayed my trust.  Meanwhile, the continue to benefit from my hard work, particular this year because of the guest I got them.  It was my magnum opus and I did not get to enjoy it.
I still struggle with seeing people enjoy their time there, making positive comments and generally enjoying something I had so much to do with at one time bu...

2013 in review

The year of cons!

January 17, 2014 Posted by Ron


Once again I delve into a personal assessment and evaluation with no expectation of anyone else giving a sh*t about me, my year or my life.  I just find it therapeutic.
Going into 2013, I had suffered a pretty difficult 2012.  I am sure there are hundreds of ways that it could have gotten worse but I was hopeful that it would be better year for me.  It started out kind of ambitious, with my first attempt to restart my old Saturday gaming group, making plans ot lauch a game review...

People Disappoint

September 16, 2013 Posted by Ron


A moment of introspection has lead me to really analyze myself and the people around me.A little background - in the past couple of years, 2 people who I thought were good and reliable friends have disappointed me greatly.  Through my life, I have had many people disappoint me.  Why do they?  They don't meet expectations obviously.  I give people slack in a lot of things and my expectations are never really set too high for most people.  But when people tel...

A year later and they are still at it!

July 01, 2013 Posted by Ron


Character! Integrity! Honor!  These are the things I expect from friends.  They are very important to me.  I am not stupid enough to think that any one person can be perfect in any of those categories, but when dealing with me, my family and my friends, you need to show a certain minimum in all three.
I tolerated a lot of lack in those areas for 11 years while working with a certain group, so much so that perhaps it was permeating into me.  Or maybe perhaps that was the probl...
