“Gosh, you’ve… really got some nice toys here.”

Happy SPRING!

The usual quote. Who said it, in what movie, and when was that movie released in the USA? Answers next week.

Here are Matthew McAndrew’s comics for this week (the second strip will come up blank until I get home and remember to update the site):

Matthew McAndrews’ Modem Problems #440 – Stella’s Lab – Part 10 – March 17th, 2008

Matthew McAndrews’ Modem Problems #441 – Isn’t It Sad… – March 20th, 2008


Health and Well-Being: I am mildly depressed. I can tell because I am not much interested in anything really. And I really, really have to resist the sweets… as they give me a momentary high before the drop is worse than the high. Mhari’s doing okay. She’s got difficult things coming up, but she’s doing well so far. Now if she could only find a decongestant that didn’t either conflict with her meds, or cause her nasty headaches… she’d be all set.


MMOs:
City of Heroes/Villains: We played. We had fun. We continue to do so. Looking forward to Issue 12. We did the Striga Isle task force Monday (the one in the volcano) and it was fun. My character, Professor Thrill, actually got out before the place blew up. Only one other character on the team managed that. Fun TF!

Eve Online: Yes, I played it a little with one of my characters. Did two missions. Was rather fun as they were not just run of the mill things. One was a mining mission, and the other was an encounter where experimented upon critters had to be destroyed (along with the lab they were experimented on) and environmental terrorists/fanatics came to try to stop me doing that. It was different. And I liked that.

Second Life: I spent some time online, went exploring. Played some Devil May Care (sometimes also known as SL-ingo). Hung out with some friends. Generally kicked back and relaxed in a online world where there is no XP grind…


Answers to Last week’s Quote
Quote: "I was wrong. The journey was worthwhile. Finish it for me."
Who Said it: Rhun, played by Robbie Coltrane
In what Movie: Krull
What year was it released: 1983

Robbie Coltraine is, of course the actor playing Rubeus Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, which is one of the things that brought doing this quote into my mind. And something that didn’t link them for me originally is revealed in the trivia for Krull. That is that another actor, Michael Elphick did the voices for the character rather than Mr. Coltraine.

On a disturbing note, many of the quotes I have been doing of late have been made by people who have passed away since they said them. In this quote I had thought I had avoided that. But Mr. Elphick passed away in 2002 of a heart attack… so the trend continues. :<


Well, that’s it for this post. See folks next week with the answer to this week’s quote…
