I was fortunate to participate in the Welcome Back Weekend for Elder Scrolls Online. I was invited to download the game and play because I had been in the beta test in 2013. The reason I didn’t stay are no longer relevant anymore. I am glad they gave me a chance to look at the game in a new light. A lot has changed since beta and from what I can see it was for the better that those changes were made. So many changes that I can’t wait to play again, even with me having to use the WASD keys, yuck! Read more...(1452 words, 48 images, estimated 5:48 mins reading time)
Even though I had a great time with the event there were a few hiccups along the way. The download was over 35 gigabytes and on a high speed instead of broadband connection it took me about 3 nights of downloading to get it all. So I was all set when the event started except when I tried to log in they have a computer verification system.
Back when The Sci-fi Channel was still showing the mainstays of its content of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, before the ECW and reality shows kicked in, we were treated to all kinds of great mini-series, and if you missed this one in 2007, go pick it up now! This is a twist on a classic, but also a kind of sequel to Frank L. Baum tales of Oz. To all those kids growing up during the 60s and 70s, you most likely felt pretty special when you got to see the annual viewing of the 1937 classic, The Wizard of Oz, when it aired on CBS. There was even an alternate version featuring an all-African-American cast, including a teen Micheal Jackson, The Wiz. These might have prepared you for the new sexy musical about the witches of Oz, Wicked, if you have been lucky enough to see this stage production, but Tin Man just about blows these away.

I have always loved Time Travel stories. Movies like The Time Machine, Sphere, and TV shows like 7 Days and Doctor Who were a mainstay for me when I was a kid, and I still love them. It’s a part of scifi and fantasy where just about anything can happen. There’s something mysterious and fascinating about being able to control time, but what happens when it goes out of control. This is what happens when Eliza, a curious English teen goes into a local clocktower to get a closer look at its workings. This is no ordinary clocktower, but one that controls time itself. Eliza goes snooping around and finds the caretaker working on polishing some gears, or some other kind of repair, we really never see up close. He drops his pocket watch, Eliza picks it up, and startles him when she tries to give it back. He startles here with his reaction, and the pocket-watch falls into the workings of the big clock. Now time has gone bonkers in her little English town, and it’s up to Eliza and a very smart talking pocket-watch to put things back together.

This is one of the cutest shows I have seen lately. It was originally done in Canada, or rather for Canada. It is about a girl named Jane that was tired of being a maid in waiting, just like her mother. She was so against being a servant in the kings’s castle that when the prince was found missing she went to go get the little brat back.
Yes, the prince is a real brat and is always trying to cause problems. You know how kids are that are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, they think they are better then everyone else and they always make a point of pointing that fact out. EVEN if they are WRONG!
