My review of the Big Finish 8th doctor adventure HotHouse (number 3.2) featuring Paul McGann as the 8th doctor and Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller is available at here.

I guess the McGann fans must be reading this blog, my “who is your favorite doctor” poll currently has him in the lead, with Tennent (10th) 2nd and Tom Baker (4th my favorite) 3rd. William Hartnell gets absolutely no respect in that poll, it’s a crying shame.

What would be a bigger shame is paying $40+ for this when Mike’s comics will sell it to you for $13 bucks.

You will note that I haven’t been reviewing these things in order, basically I’ve reviewed them in the order that I’ve picked them up. Once I have the entire set I’ll be more organized in the reviews and perhaps link to a few I did before I was blogging.

My review of the penultimate Big Finish 6th Doctor Charley Pollard adventure Paper Cuts number #125 is available at here.

This also contains the next part of the Three Companions Story. This has really been interesting. I think the use of this kind of backfeature might be a great way to get people to actually buy these instead of pirating them.

I really don’t understand why Amazon US doesn’t carry those but that is what Mike’s comics is for.

Mike and Patty are sweethearts and you will not find a retailer more considerate than Mike’s. You will be happy to give them your business.

Update: I don’t know how I managed to forget the link but it’s there now.

…this is what they see and are attacking:

The 23-year-old holidaymaker said she was attacked by a waiter working at her hotel.

But when she reported the attack to police she was arrested for drinking in an unlicensed premises and for having sex outside marriage with her 44-year-old British boyfriend.

Yeah just like those Christianists to be acting like this but there is more…

Today it was revealed that the woman has been told that she must drop the rape allegation, admit she was drunk at the time and marry her fiancee if she wants to return to Britain.

The British Embassy in the emirate will marry the couple within weeks in the hope that lawyers will drop charges against her.

Now unless you are living on planet secular human liberal you of course know that this story takes place in the Islamic country of Dubai and the people involved are Muslims

As foreigners from Europe they normally would not be leaned on so but in this case:

it is likely officers were more strict because the couple are Muslim.

Yesterday, a former cellmate of the woman told a newspaper: ‘She’s a British girl but a Muslim, so they were tougher on her.

‘She was trying to report the rape but soon realized the policemen were more interested in how often she has sex with her boyfriend.’

There are a lot of words you can describe justice like this, being a calm and diplomatic sort I describe it the act of barbarian bastards.

When you hear about Sharia courts and that kind of thing in Europe and Canada and non-integrated this is what is coming, and do you know what the worst part that prospect is?

…the worst part is the prospect of a 2nd horrible criminal double standard like the one I’ve already written about:

Much like inner city violence, gang violence, drugs, the slaughter and destruction of Black communities, it is ignored because it is being done by people of the same skin color and being run like political fiefdoms. As long as those fiefdoms provide the votes by (maybe buy) hook or crook all is well. And any attempt to make change, then those who are supported financially by said fiefdom scream bloody murder and racism.

The end result of this type of thing is going to be virtual serfdom of Sharia for Muslims who come to the west. If you aren’t upset by this you should be. If you are more upset by Brit Hume than by this, then you really gotta sit down and think.

Update: In other news concerning the religion of peace:

Firebombs were thrown at three more churches in Malaysia on Sunday and another was splashed with black paint, the latest in a series of assaults on Christian houses of worship following a court decision allowing non-Muslims to use “Allah” to refer to God.

CNN gave a full segment with pundits to talk about Hume today, The media talked about this for a week. I wonder if they will give this much, if any, coverage?

Munchkin Quest 2: Amazon Review

My review of the Expansion for Munchkin Quest; Munchkin Quest 2, Looking for Trouble. Is available at here.

If you like me have constantly played with a group above 4 you will need this. We played with 7, to do that we added a d8 to replace the color die and when the monster belonged to the “seventh” color, they just appeared without a base.

If you are not familiar with the franchise, this game is a parody of D & D. All the fighting, all the treasure, none of the role playing. And of course silly stuff.

This game is fun, and that’s really what it’s all about.
