Blazing Rockets!

June 8th, 2006

I took this week off, as Vic is out of town (on a cruise ship, no less) and it’s the perfect opportunity to spend entirely too much time watching Doctor Who DVDs and staying up entirely too late playing computer games.

(And in case you’re wondering, no, Vic and I are not taking separate vacations these days. She went with her best friend in celebration of nearly 40 years of…friendliness.)

Today’s time sink came courtesy of Lionhead Studios, who just released a “Stunts and Effects” expansion to their sim/moviemaker game The Movies. It was well worth the money, adding tons of new content for amateur directors such as myself.

And so, I present to you the first fruit of my labors with the expansion: the first in what I hope will be a series of episodes featuring the disturbingly familiar-looking Kurt Starr, interstellar rogue.

(Actually, this is not the first appearance of Mr. Starr, who originally appeared in my previous epic Bart Starr and the Princess of Ondes, until it was pointed out to me that Bart Starr is a real-life athlete. Hence, Starr’s name change, though being a two-fisted space hero, his name must continue to start with an appropriately hard consonent.)
