One of the ways we passed the time on the long drive to Jasper and Banff was to listen to the unabridged audiobook version of Eragon, written by Christopher Paolini.
It is perhaps a little unusual that I have a soft spot, and consider a comfort movie, this little Indie movie starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jude Law, Ian Holm, Christopher Eccleston and other roles by indie actors and actresses. Directed by David Cronenberg.
The other movie I watched for long lost Pascal was Dangerous Liaisons, starring John Malkovich (again!), Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer and Uma Thurman.
One of the reasons why I was slow in getting the reviews in was that two of the movies I watched were to help inspire me for that game I sadly crashed and burned out of.
First of these is The Man in the Iron Mask, starring John Malkovich, Jeremy Irons, Gerard Depardieu, Gabriel Byrne, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
MPR: The LoopHole
The Loophole, a blog on Minnesota Public Radio, posits the idea that a Board Game Renaissance is in progress, led by Settlers of Catan.
Certainly, a walk through “The Source” gamestore shows that the board games are getting more and more space at the expense of some RPG stuff. And Catan is a lot of fun as are their ilk, even if I rarely do well in playing them.
Pictures from my Vacation are now available:
Paul’s Canadian Adventure
This is one of the most photographed lakes in the world, Lake Louise, in Banff National Park. As you can see, it was still partially frozen when we arrived. Victoria Glacier is in the background providing a beautiful backframe for the lake.
Home again, safe and sound.
