Here's the Fury Road trailer. So much awesome.
*MAD MAX PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD*
The first Mad Max movie came out in 1979. Despite the great ratings over at rotten tomatoes I'd probably consider this one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Not the absolute worst, but it's down in the dumps under a mountain of other terrible, but not quite so terrible, movies. Despite the overuse of dramatic music, confusing shots, and bad parenting I was still glad to get an idea of what made Max Rockatansky into Mad Max. That is until I watched the second movie and they summed it all up in the first 2 minutes. Honestly, the 2 minute summary was far better than the whole hour and a half of movie.
|Even the tagline is cheesy.|
|All that's left of poor old Goose. :'(|
|You're going down evil biker gang!|
|Alright... starting to look a little more awesome.|
|A fairly well defended pump and refinery.|
|Watch out Max! That crazy guy is after you!|
|This duo was one of the best parts of the 3rd movie.|
*END OF SPOILERS*
Finally, we come to Mad Max: Fury Road. It is literally the best action movie I have ever seen in my entire life thus far. I could have walked straight back into that theater and watched the whole thing over a second time. The details of the Mad Max world, the crazy characters and vehicles, and the action... oh the action. Watching the movie is almost a workout. My heart was racing nearly the entire movie. As the Warboy says... What a lovely day! Oh, what an amazing, incredible movie. I can't wait to watch it again.

|The mysterious game I had always only heard about...|
|The three main characters, a couple fluffy enemies, and a merchant cat!|
|Flying around on your dragon is a great way to get around.|
|Most of the things are doing things!|
|The lettuce is looking particularly leafy. Om nom.|
|Here, the peppers can be seen doing their thing.|

|Original Game Design Document title page.|
|This shows how the 3 Tank part pieces fit together to create your own custom tank!|
It will be important to draw cards, but also shoot at your enemies and make sure they are not getting ahead. With enough cards you could play larger groups of people, but I'm creating a prototype for up to 4 players. There are Cannon cards, Frame cards, Tread cards, as well as cards that upgrade the various pieces and One-Off cards that let you dodge or put a banana peel on the battlefield. Yes. Despite the Superbian military's elite tank building department they can still be susceptible to a mere banana peel (except for the Hover treads!).

|The start of our plants!|
We also started some lupin and foxglove at the same time. Most of it is somewhat surviving. It's super exciting to see all these little green thins pop out of the dirt! We've since transferred them to the larger community plot. With a little bit of work we tilled the soil, added new soil, prepped the plot, and planted our starters as well as the other vegetable seedlings.
The peppers were doing exceptionally well. I'll update on the garden again in a week or so. Exciting green things are popping out and checking out the wide world above the dirt!
