A Brief History of Comic Book Arcade Games. I remember in the late 80’s, very early 90’s I played a lot of the X-Men and Ninja Turtles games at Showbiz. After watching the clip of that first Ninja Turtles game, I believe I died a lot trying to save April from the room with flames in it.

With the first X-Men game listed, I was always Storm--or, if someone else had her, Nightcrawler. Other than those (the rest of which I’ve either never heard of or just barely heard of) and a few Atari games when I was really little (something with buckets of water and bombs—something else where a city slowly blew up) I didn’t play video games. Wait, no--I played something else at Movie Warehouse when I was 11, but I don't know what. It took a few weeks to get through, since I could only be there for an hour after school. Mortal Kombat or a game like that.

ETA: A search through Google and Wikipedia show that the arcade game was Street Fighter II, not Mortal Kombat.

12 Weird Sci-Fi Statues You Can Buy For Your Garden.

Io9 reviews the latest episode of Warehouse 13. I managed to catch something like the final 20 minutes of it the day it aired, so I didn’t know what was going on. All I knew was someone was stuck in a mirror. Now that I know the actual plot, I’ll try to watch the whole thing via On Demand later, and see if I like it.

Over at [profile] thedailymovie, today they mentioned Quick Change, from 1990. Does anyone else remember it? And if so, is it worth watching? Because I only know of it because they played the trailer for that right before The Little Mermaid back in late 1989. Yes, really. At the time, I wanted to go see it because Bill Murray was in it as a clown, and I hadn’t seen him in anything other than Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. Here’s the trailer. If anyone wonders, at the time it was released I was 8—Wikipedia says July of 1990, but trailers were shown much earlier than that.

Oh, and a non-fannish related note. According to CNN, a girl (named Jaycee Dugard, I believe) was kidnapped back in 1991. After 18 years, she’s been found. She apparently just walked into a police station, and told people she had been kidnapped.

And just as I was about to post all of the above around 2 PM, the power went out. A couple streets away, a transformer had blown up. As of 2:30 PM, we have power back.
