|14 of us played 8 games. I hypothesize attendance has dropped lately due to school being out and summer starting up.||
Russian Ark is a very interesting movie (an amazing 96 minute continuous take (after months of rehearsal) wandering through the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg with a cast of hundreds and amazing period costumes, art, choreography) with a disappointing mishmash of a slow jumbled surreal/ghost/dream/timetravel storyline, which I would recommend to anyone interested in the art of film or weird movies and would not recommend to anyone who just wants a rollicking story, e.g. with light sabers, and dislikes weird movies (I'm looking at you, Dave!).
If any of y'all have secretly dreamed of taking over the Wednesday slot of Comicollage, let me know, since Mutt has bowed out.
OK, my answering machine greeting got replaced by an inexplicable weird one again (thanks Whendy for the heads-up)... either someone at RussCon is messing with me, or some random person is calling in and changing it remotely. To thwart the latter possibility, I've changed the remote access code. Very odd.
Esperanto group at 3pm today (Sunday) at Texspresso.

Again I lose Das Amulett... Still enjoying it, though. Fina won her first game of it!
JeffJ brought Burn Rate, the dot.com card game... All I know is it's yet another whimsical looking card game on a contemporary geek-hip theme that probably has cute flavor text and art... and I guess it was interesting since they played it twice!
Failure, Fantastic Planet
King Crimson, Starless and Bible Black
Pink Floyd, Obscured by Clouds
Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon
Another of those pesky meta themes.
