Possible ice on Mercury? Given the proximity to the sun, I’d think even the shadow sides would be a bit more on the warmish side, but what do I know?
Although I’m diligently working on LIM plus writing on a horror novel for my thesis project, I still manage to sang a moment now and then to play video games. I’m at about the halfway point in Resident Evil 4, and it’s fun enough but disappointing. I never followed any of the Resident Evil movies or games, but I thought I’d picked up a notion of the overarching story: a bio-accident at a lab in Raccoon City turned people into zombie/living dead/ugly creatures, and the heroes had to stop it. Since this game is a sequel, I figured it would somehow relate to that storyline, but not so. Oh, there are lots of zombies and lots of shooting, but it is, at least thus far, dealing with some kind if occult group bent on some vague plan that includes kidnapping the president’s daughter. Not very compelling. Maybe it ramps up in the end, and I’m enjoying it as mindless entertainment, but I really want to move on to the mountain of other games I have on hand that seem to promise more.
A new month is about to begin at Top Web Comics, so don’t forget to vote for LIM. We were at least in the top 100 this month, but we used to hover in the mid-50s. I probably forget to vote every day as well, but I hate to think my voting for my own webcomic is the reason we made it that high!
I have some new blog material on hand, just no time to shape it at the moment, but soon…honest, soon. Until then, you’ll have to be satisfied with the comic.
Have a good weekend.
