Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: been awhile


It's been ages since I posted to this thread. Time to break the streak with reviews of a couple of family movies on DVD.

The Bee Movie

When the commericals for this one first came out, I was somewhat interested. The scene with Jerry Seinfeld's bee on the windshield with Chris Rock's mosquito was funny.

It was the high point of the movie. That, or maybe the lawyer quip that Rock makes at the end of the film.

I was worried when the opening moments of the film were spent telling us how scientists knew that bees should be unable to fly, but that bees didn't care what people thought. I found this to be odd, since the movie was about a honeybee, and everyone knows that it's bumblebees who go against the understood laws of physics. That irritates me, but I figured I was being nitpicky, that I should hush and enjoy the movie.

Ugh. The first part of the movie is okay, I guess, with Seinfeld's bee wanting more out of his life than an assigned job he'll keep until his death. He sneaks his way into the pollen jocks, who get to fly out of the hive. And then, everything goes stupid.

He meets and falls into some sort of love with a human woman who can understand him. He then sues the human race for exploiting bees and stealing their honey.

Hah! Turns out that all humans can understand not only him, but all bees... just, for some reason never explained, bees have never talked to humans before.

Um, whatever. The story meanders without any real structure. The characters are just... flat, dumb, and lifeless. And my beef about the "bees can't fly" thing is crushed by a much worse infraction at the end of the movie: Senfeld's bee wins his case, and bees stop producing honey (and thus, pollentaing flowers), period. Which results in the death of pretty much every plant, everywhere.

So how do they fix it? Why, with a huge shipment of roses destined for the Macy's Day parade, of course! Because, you know, rose pollen clearly has the power to rejuveniate any sort of dead plant like magic! Last time I checked, the pollen has to come from, you know, the same KIND of plant, and is only involved in fertilization/reproduction. Not, you know, restoring life to existing plants.

I understand suspension of disbelief. I understand fabricating fantasy for the sake of a movie. After all, the movie IS about a talking bee. But one must wonder what else this magic rose pollen could be used for. Cure for cancer? Resurrect dead grandma? It boggles the mind.

This movie is a catastrophic waste of time. If you see a copy in your local video store, drop it on the ground and "accidentally" grind it into pieces beneath your heel.

glad you enjoyed it, Grugg.

To cheat, open a new browser window. The game remembers you for the life of that window.

Topic: A fun little game...
Subject: A fun little game...


I had this code lying around from a project I had started once upon a time. I thought that the Innmates might enjoy it.

Lizard races

This is just a simple little wagering game. You start with 50 coins every time you hit the site for the first time. If you run out, you're out (but you can cheat, close and re-open the window... I'm not really saving anything).

In the past, I have mused about adding some simple little games to the Inn... this one, maybe a small lottery, other things? Anyway, as stated, I had this code, and figured it would be better shared than sitting around collecting dust.

Let me know what you think.

Topic: Keeping PC's alive
Subject: whoa


**pointedly ignores that choice of words**

Yep, level 1s are easy to kill. If you are low level, death is always nearby.

I, too, try to avoid killing players if I can... but, as my title suggests, I am not at all above offing them if the situation (i.e. stupidity or extraordinary bad luck) warrants.

I hate trying to do anything without mine.

Could I make the text field even bigger? Sure, but at the cost of some performance. One post over the eight year life of this site does not really sway me to make such a change.

Subject: just FYI


The text field in our database is limited to 65,535 characters.

Usually enough.

Topic: What is Your Light Saber colour?
Subject: heh


I have a blue lightsaber

My lightsaber is blue, what color is yours? Take the quiz.

You are intelligent and choose to fight your battles with tactics and a lightsaber in hand.

Other famous jedi with blue lightsabers:

Anakin Skywalker
Obi-wan Kenobi


I gotta say, it looks to me like the most important question as to what you are awarded is what your favorite lightsaber color is.

Join me, good people, in cheering the date of August the thirtieth, for that is the day that marks the birth of our own Alacrity. I do not exaggerate when I tell you that were it not for his dedication, the Inn as you know it would almost certainly not exist today.

Hip hip, hooray!

Topic: Seem to have lost my way
Subject: nice answer!


Wyrmsting is absolutely correct. The Red Dragon Inn itself does not exist in Audalis canon; the Inn itself is more a place for gamers of all stripes and interests. Audalis is the D&D/fantasy setting we have developed over the years, and while there are usually several games running within that setting at any given time, the Inn is by no means limited to it.

By the way... welcome!

Subject: woof, woof!


Okay, gang. The recent posts give me enough to go on.

It will take several hours for Blake to make headway on her hacking. Coincidentally, it will probably be several hours before any of the inured rangers are close to able to move, much less fight.

I was intending on doing this as a woof moment... just bumping the clock ahead. However, if anyone was planning to do anything in the meantime, I'd hate to interfere.


Let me know!

Subject: fun in the sun, or, no webmaster!


Folks, I'm gonna be offline for the next week. We're getting up at five AM Saturday morning to drive down to St. George Island, Florida, for a week of relaxation in the sun.

Cell phone coverage is spotty, and I wouldn't seek an internet connection, even if it was available (which I have no idea if it is or not).

This is a nice, quiet vacation for us; a little, isolated, out of the way place where almost everything closes by 5:30 PM. Swimming, sandcastles, sunburn, and a little deep sea fishing are the itenary.
