    Pitch me basic Marvel comics for middle school library

    I feel like I have a good bead on DC comics, but I would like to add 8-12 titles to a middle school library collection from Marvel. Let's say Avengers and X-Men - I don't really know where to start with these. Please pitch me a few titles that are recent or a series that has started or...

    Elder Scrolls Online

    Anyone playing Elder Scrolls Online? I tried the beta for about an hour a couple of months ago. I'm very glad I did because I ended up really, really not liking it. I was super curious about it, and I had hoped it would be my cup of tea, but it just did nothing for me. I'm not a MMORPG guy...

    Used car: age vs. mileage

    I'm going to be in the market for a used car in the next year or so. Anyone have advice on the issue of age vs. mileage? I can find cars that are three years old with relatively low mileage (let's say 3 years old with 50,000 miles on it), and I can find cars that are a year old with what I...

    Do anything cool recently?

    Whether as player or GM, what have you done lately that you thought was kind of nifty? My 2nd level elf fighter got to stand on a bar in a tavern and attack bad guys with his two-bladed sword. He had just jumped out of an upper story window to get down to the ground-level entrance before this...

    video game related fiction

    Hi there, as some of you know I run a middle school library (grade 7-8, that's around 12-14 years old). I am aware that some computer games have novel tie-ins - I am thinking specifically about Halo, but maybe also about WoW. Having played neither of these games, I am looking for suggestions...

    April Fools gags

    Anyone spot any clever gags online? Hulu's front page is now looking like it might have looked had it been around in 1996. Funny to see a reference to a "new" episode of the X files. Hulu: Homepage And I can only hope this is a joke: Gmail Motion BETA

    Green Lantern Trailer

    Green Lantern - Movie Trailers - iTunes Russ mentioned it on Facebook recently; not sure myself if this is old or new news. Still, looks kinda cool. I know next to nothing about Green Lantern but I did watch some fairly recent animated movie on DVD and see some stuff I recognize.

    Mr. Noah does not play World of Warcraft

    There's a rumor going around my school that I am a big World of Warcraft player. This is untrue. I have in fact never played World of Warcraft. That is all. Sincerely, Mr. Noah

    Animated Spider-Man DVD - gift for young child?

    Hi there, I have a young nephew who apparently is really into Spider-Man. I see a couple of varieties of animated Spider-Man DVD products at Amazon.com - anyone have a suggestion? It could be a series DVD or a single "movie" or long episode or whatever. Thanks!

    A 'generic' monster manual

    Has anyone created a resource like this... I would like a list of bare bones monster stats for CRs 1-20. One set of stats for each CR. It would help answer the question "what are appropriate values for AC, attack bonus, damage, saves, skills for a particular CR." It could also be used to...

    10 years of ENW

    It's occurring to me that Aug 2009 will mark 10 years since the start of Eric Noah's Unofficial D&D 3rd Edition News and thus we are hitting a major milestone for the community. Should we celebrate it somehow? Maybe a chat party, or a retrospective of some kind, or a series of interviews with...

    New Futurama Movie

    Into the Wild Green Yonder, the last of the four straight-to-DVD Futurama movies came out on Tuesday. The timing of the release surprised me - it's great that it comes so close on the heels of the previous release - and so I thought I would alert fellow Futurama fans. I enjoyed it and am...

    Help me identify old sci fi show

    Ok, on my digital tuner box I get a channel that is 27.1. 27 is the local ABC affiliate, and presumably 27.1 is somehow related. However, where ever I go online to look at the TV lineup for that channel I see "programming unavailable." So I turn to you for help... Last night I saw the most...

    Feb '09: What are you reading?

    I'm reading Lankhmar Book 1: Swords and Deviltry. As is usual with fantasy, I'm struggling to get into the right frame of mind. I do much better at "jumping right in" when it's sci fi. I'm listening to Hyperion by Dan Simmons. Been a long, long time since I read it, and as usual the...
