Seaside is unfocused and the general conclusion among my friends is the matts and the coins and stuff simply make the game too complicated and a pain. However, Intrigue has a lot of interesting and fun things that expand in different dimensions. I'd highly recommend adding it.

My iPod just played Der Guten Tag Clop-Hop from The Producers right after playing What Would You Do? from Cabaret (I have 6000+ songs on here, maybe 100 from musicals), and it actually made my brain freeze for a moment, going from a song about the anguish of a woman faced with losing everything because she loves a Jew to a celebration of 'Da Fuhrer's favourite dance!'

Also, remember that Schmap needs to pay to distribute the things, and to print them, and a pile of other things that are still essentially 'costs' that the advertising pays for, even when they don't make enough money to pay people for the use of the pictures. So 'ad supported' might just pay for the physical costs, and maybe a little for a cartographer and/or a graphic designer, and not much else.

Wil; Pandemonium Books & Games, in Cambridge, MA, is going to donate games and shipping; we'll accept drop offs in store (you don't need to buy at the store, but heck, we *are* a game store if you don't have anything spare), and we'll accept donations by paypal to be used to buy games, some books, toys, and other geeky stuff, at general@pandemoniumbooks.com. I'll be collecting the donations and putting them all towards buying stuff to be shipped out on May 2. More info is here: http://community.livejournal.com/pandemonium_bks/94371.html Thanks for posting about this! -Stephanie.

I was incredibly sad/pissed off last week when they ended it on the 'what do we send after the coyote?' joke, which is tired (I've heard it about another set of animals, but at least 20 years ago). Harriet is based on Kristin Chenoweth, and it seems to me that her cruelty is simply reverse viciousness by Sorkin here.

While I understand your threat, 'it is just a tv show' is my response (luckily, I'm a girl). The issue is, in fact, just that. This summer I sat down and watched the Lost DVDs (I had not followed the show before because of intermittent cable issues). The first season was, as my friends had told me, great. The second season was interesting, but by the end of the season (with some sudden flashes of brilliance, like 'Dave', and which were carried by the acting), were good. But unlike the end of season one, where I was 'MUST...GRAB...SEASON TWO NOW!! I didn't actually care at the end of season two what happened. I was not going nuts (other shows this has happened on; Veronica Mars, with a great first season cliffhanger, and a dull second one though the show is fine, just the cliffhanger turfed, and Nip/Tuck, where I spent 8 MONTHS going nuts wondering what had happened to Christian with the weird seasons they had, and after last season just got very, 'I don't care anymore.' I hadn't even noticed it was back on this year). The sad part of this IS for a year and a half, it was outstanding, and now it's fading into 'just a tv show'.
