We went to a show over the weekend called Spoons, Toons and Booze, where you watch old Saturday-morning cartoons on a movie screen while you drink booze with cereal floating in it. It tastes better than it sounds, but it smells twice as revolting. There’s other food, too, in case you’re not into Cocoa Puffs and vodka.
One of the ‘toons we saw was “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.” If you’re between 30 and 40, you might remember this show. It’s about a prince with a secret identity as a WWE wrestler and his stable of misfit singers who…no, wait, that’s “Jem and the Holograms.” Sorry.
I remember “He-Man” being a bit scary when I was a kid, but not so much now. Skeletor has the geekiest voice ever. It’s like, “I”m going to get you, He-Man! And then I’m going to play Dungeons and Dragons! And then sort my stamp collection! You can’t stop me! Mwa-ha-ha-haaaa! Oh, God, I think I pulled a muscle.” He-Man is only a little better.
I did learn three lessons watching “He-Man” with adult eyes.
1) With great power comes a loin cloth and a stylish vest.
2) If you’re a big enough wuss, your own parents won’t recognize you when you step up.
3) This one holds true for many villains and heroes, but it was reinforced here: Don’t announce what you’re going to do to your enemy before you do it. Just do it. You can summarize later in your Hello Kitty diary.
In other news, Devon made an app you might want to try out if you play Pathfinder. It’s called Masterwork Tools, and it makes Pathfinder reference material available on your Android phone or tablet. From our conversation this morning:
Devon: My app got two more reviews, both 4 stars. It dropped my rating to 4 and a half stars.
Me: That sucks.
Me: Hatas gonna hate.
So if you like it, please give it 5 stars.
