Been a while since I last wrote a journal, so I figured I write one while I figure out which skin to go with next time. Also a chance to show off three fandoms I've been hooked on since the last I wrote.



Critical Role

When I sat through the Critical Role panel (or rather a live recording of the Tuesday night after-show called Talks Machina) at San Diego Comic Con ahead of the Quick Draw last year, I didn't know what to expect. Within one hour, I was utterly mesmerized by this Internet show that broadcasts the live Dungeons and Dragons gaming sessions played by well known voice actors. Upon watching a couple of clips online, I became instantly hooked. The fantastic storytelling and improvisational acting by all is absolutely wonderful and enchanting. And 2017 resulted in the show exploding into a pop culture phenomenon with a D&D supplemental book based in the show's world, a six-issue origin comic book published by Dark Horse Comics, the first of what will surely become many art books, and a growing list of special guest players such as Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), and more. 2017 also brought an end to an epic five-year campaign that was heart-felt and poetic. 2018 kicked off with a brand new campaign, meaning new characters for fans to get introduced to in a new setting, along with an awesome guest player in Khary Payton (The Walking Dead). This show has me hooked, line, and sinker.

The video below is highlights from the first episode of the new campaign as Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer (Leon Kennedy in various Resident Evil projects, Overwatch) has each of the players Liam O'Brien (Naruto, Doctor Strange in various Marvel projects), Sam Riegel (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Donatello in 2003 Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles series), Laura Bailey (Chun-Li in various Street Fighter projects, Black Widow in various Marvel projects), Marisha Ray (Fire Emblem, Metal Gear Survive), Travis Willingham (Fullmetal Alchemist, Thor in various Marvel projects), Taliesin Jaffe (Blanka in various Street Fighter projects, The Flash in various DC projects), and Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us, Blindspot) describe their new characters.




Hamilton

I've known about Hamilton for a couple years, but because I didn't live near New York I had to patiently wait for a tour to see it. And even then it was a challenge because tickets were about as hard to get as Comic Con badges. But I eventually got to see it during its San Diego run and woo-boy was it worth it. Easily one of my favorite musicals as Lin-Manuel Miranda (Moana, Mary Poppins Returns) crafted a fantastic retelling of the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton to a more hip-hop style of music and performing, making a lot of the real life facts easier to understand and digest. And the music itself is electrifying, some of the best songs I've heard in a very long time. And that doesn't event touch upon the amazing staging and storytelling that's on display from start to finish. This show really is a must-see in every sense of the phrase.

The video below compiles ten minutes of B-roll footage shot in preparation for the show's Broadway debut back in 2015.




Life is Strange

Few video games really strike me as absolutely genuine and heart-felt from start to finish. It requires a combination of amazing, emotional narrative and wonderful characters to care about. The episodic Life is Strange nails all of this and then some with a beautiful coming-of-age story involving time travel, romance, teen angst, and mystery. Max and Chloe have instantly become two of my all-time favorite video game characters, as well as one of my all-time favorite video game couples (which I'm tempted to accept a fan-beloved polyamorous relationship as a result of the equally great prequel title Life is Strange: Before the Storm) with just how good and how true the developers wrote them and their respective voice actresses Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch perform them. Throw in one of the finest soundtracks ever and this is a game that's captivating and enchanting all the while tearing my heart into pieces.

Below is the launch trailer to the game and its first episode.

  • Listening to: Life is Strange Soundtrack
  • Reading: Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-Earth
  • Watching: Critical Role
  • Playing: Until Dawn
  • Eating: Chicken Margherita with Balsamic
  • Drinking: Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry
