Hey, remember that remake of The Crow people are always trying to make happen? Remember that the film’s latest director F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall) walked away from the project? Remember that he was quickly followed by his star Luke Evans (The Hobbit), who was the latest in the long line of actors to play The Crow? And then, miracle of miracles, Colin Hardy (The Hollow) came on board to take over as director, because nothing says this 20-year-old movie deserves to be remade like spending millions more than what the original movie was made for in the first place.

Nerd Bastards writer Regina Lizik usually does the weekly The Walking Dead write-up, but she’s out this week so I’m filling in. This week’s episode is called Remember. What exactly are our merry band of survivors supposed to be remembering?

It’s Loot Crate time again, another mysterious black box has arrived with untold treasures inside. If you are new to this subscription box service thing, once a month (and for less than $20 USD including shipping,) Loot Crate sends you a box of geeky nerdy things all wrapped around a theme.

My expectations are high on this one, the past few crates have been great and with this months theme having a RPG connection I could possibly get the hippogriff I have so desperately wanted after decades of playing D&D. Let’s open it up and see! (more…)
