…or something. Anywho, I’m on Twitter. Went with literal since it was available @TSLuikart

Busy Is Me

I know, I know, I haven’t been around. I can explain… no, wait, I’ll just sum up:

Promotion.

Got married.

Wildly successful still-going-on kickstarter.

 

I think I need to get it on this whole “Twitter” thing – short but sweet is probably more my speed these days.

“Suggested By” Indeed

I saw a number of movies this weekend most notably True Legend for Far West inspirado.

I also saw On Stranger Tides. Wait… actually, no I didn’t. I didn’t see Tim Powers’ masterful book On Stranger Tides put on the big screen, the book that made me want to write Skull & Bones. No, I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides a movie that was, as this post’s title notes, “suggested by” Tim’s book.

I hope Tim got a big wad of money for loaning them his title, his bad-guy (one of them… sort of), and kinda his plot, I guess. It wasn’t even that bad of a movie, really… I mean, it wasn’t particularly good either, but it wasn’t atrocious.

Look, do both of us a favor… go read On Stranger Tides, brand new paper copies are now readily available due to the release of the movie (which make a point of saying on them in very small print “suggested the movie picture”) and certainly an electronic copy is a few keystrokes away.

Then you can regret along with me that the existence of this tepid movie means no real adaptation of Tim’s book for another 20 years, if ever.

A Tempest Strikes Our Little Teapot

Oh my, but the kids are up in arms.

My two cents: never lowball yourself, ever. Dangerous habit.

Edification by Request

So I’ve been asked to expand upon my previous entry.

To wit:

I assisted Mr. Pramas in the writing of Dragon Age: Set 1. DA has been nominated in both the Best Game and Product of the Year categories.

In Best Game – DA is up against Hero 6th Edition, Pathfinder, Shadowrun-20th Anniversary, and Wild Talents 2nd Edition. Honourable Mention goes to Labyrinth Lord. I predict Shadowrun Silver and the Gold to Pathfinder.

In Product of the Year DA is up against a whole bunch of awesome – I make no predictions, but note that I’m rooting for Eclipse Phase. [Point: I did not work on the EP core book. I did write for one of the kick arse supplements that will finally be moving forward now that Posthuman has been resleeved.]

To sum up: it is always gratifying to have one’s work acknowledged – chance of actually winning this year: slim… And Pramas did all the heavy lifting anyway.
