 New Night Trap game being Kickstarted: Night Trap: ReVamped

Remember the controversial 90s FMV game Night Trap?

I didn’t actually get to play this one, but I love all things vintage FMV. Check out the Kickstarter to get a history of the controversy and info about bringing this game back.

 Marvel Comics: Thor is a woman and here is what I think

Marvel announced on The View that the new Thor is going to be a woman.

They say that, “…this new Thor was saved by her predecessor, the former male Thor, who is no longer worthy to wield Mjolnir.” Here is what she looks like:

I like the idea of a female superhero who doesn’t need 2 clowns on a unicycle holding up each pendulous boob from -9.8 m/s. I mean come ON. I usually only need half a clown on a motorcycle, personally.

The costume design is great. The concept is great. This is a step in the right direction.

I just don’t understand a few things. Why on EARTH did they think The View was the target audience for this? My impression of The View is that the women on that show have more in common with the ass end of a carousel horse than anyone who would ever go within 50 feet of a comics shop. I get that Marvel is owned by Disney and their typical Marketing song and dance involves marketing exclusively to conservative Moms (some of which watch this show) but I just don’t think that’s the demographic for this one. Sorry.

I also don’t understand why they have to take a classic superhero away from his fans in order to add a (hopefully) competent female. Way to perpetuate the myth that anyone with a vagina doing well takes something about from the penis farm, Marvel. Not cool.

I’d rather see this character added in without anything taken away because that’s the lesson, isn’t it? Women doing well don’t take shit away from men. We are all people. The only thing that should matter is if you can do the job. The better I do in life the more men AND women that I get to party with, to be honest.

That’s all it comes down to, right? “Can you do the job?” Not “You can only have 1″ like some sort of billygoat fight over who pooped last.

EDIT: Another thought – Perhaps this was done because they aren’t confident in creating a new character – much like bands that are forced to cover songs because of dollars and cents. If that’s the case I am afraid of it setting them up for failure. Not only does the character have to overcome gender bias but also overcome the impossible-to-overcome level of hatred from people who lost their favorite superhero.

My fear is that the inevitable anger from long term Thor fans are just going to work against this character – thus allowing a shortsighted executive to justify saying that people “don’t want” great female superheroes. She will never be judged on her own merits and she can never match up to a character that has been around and loved for so long. Much like Nightwish’s first replacement singer for Tarja Turunen, she doesn’t have a chance. She’s new and the shadow of the past is too big.

I hope that this fear (rooted in my lack of confidence in corporate entities to commit to long term strategy) is unfounded and that she becomes a long term character!

It could maybe be summed up in one sentence:


TL; DR: Awesome idea and concept but I am scared that the execution opens it up to a backlash that can be used against her.

major-announcement-i-just-started-my-second-convention-regeneration-who-the-doctor-who-celebration-for-every-generation-in-cockeysville-md-this-mar-27-29-2015
 MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: I just started my second convention, (Re)Generation Who: The Doctor Who Celebration for Every Generation in Cockeysville, MD this Mar. 27-29, 2015

I love how when I started Intervention in 2010 people thought I was crazy and told me so. We do such an awesome job on Intervention that literally no one is verbalizing that this time. We bring it.

I am honored to be working with the 6th Doctor, Colin Baker and many more Doctor Who celebrities TBA on the Mid-Atlantic’s major Doctor Who convention, (Re)Generation Who this March 27-29, 2015!.

Please share this news now, because even over the holiday our website was being hammered. We already have many VIP levels sold INCLUDING the Time Lord level.

We expect this event to sell out.

The staff that raised the bar on cons with Intervention is now bringing that same love and level of quality and community to the DW Fandom! Artist and vendor applications are live NOW.
