In Other News – 27 February 2015

2 min read


Sometimes, it’s the small things in life that can make you happy. And no, I’m not talking about when I go to the bathroom. I recently acquired an electronic fly zapper, after a fish braai ended in tragedy once every single one of those bastard insects descended on the meal. And life has never been so happy. Its allowed me to work on my backhand, swatting flies down for good and filling the air with a rather unique aroma of burning wings and zapped appendages. I have of course, shocked myself several times with the damn thing, but it was still worth it to finally get an edge in the long-running war with the braai-ruining flies. Victory, is indeed mine.

  1. Harrison Ford in Blade Runner sequel? Then surely that means that Rick Deckard is not a replicant! Seemed like there was very good reason to suspect that he was one, particular the final scenes.

    Hmmmm fish braai… A couple of weeks ago, I ate braai-ed tuna for the first time: so so good!

      I think I need to watch Blade Runner again. I think I was… Well, I was very young when I saw it the first time.

        Preferably at night, while it’s raining 🙂

        I’m a shameless fanboy though : it’s my all-time favorite scifi film, all-time favorite game, and Deckard’s gun is one of my favorites in my all-time favorite rpg, Fallout 2. Top spot goes to the Gauss pistol 😀

        Now that is a good idea…I haven’t seen it in while.

        Get the Directors Cut. Much closer to the original vision of Philip K. Dick and it was Scott’s original direction before the studios stuck their noses in.

      But… what if he’s cgi-young looking like Arnie did in the last Terminator movie?

        lol, that would just be wrong…

      I still need to finish the first one 😛 Loot system is a bit annoying though – too many weapons in every container imaginable

        Yeah, ME 1 is a bit overkill. Though ME2 was/is pure gaming bliss.

        play it, you soon learn to deal with th chaff, i.e. 99% of all you pickup, but some money is nice to buy some expensive kit.

        ME2 is the other direction
