How the Grinch Stole Christmas, starring Jim Carrey and directed by Ron Howard, is among the worst of the canon of both. From production to story, it is a failure.

The 2018 Grinch Movie by Illumination was so boring I actually fell asleep - and I don't sleep easily. Still it was better than that last one.

Ask your questions about National novel writing month - focusing on how to prepare, what to prepare, and how to build your process.

Talking about recent events, noisy news, and other fun topics that don't fit into an "evergreen" video.

In Role Playing Games in particular, there are two essential ingredients: SYSTEMS, which includes the rule sets, and CONTENT, which includes stories, art, and even sounds.

This is a mirror of a video I put up on a new gaming channel that I am building up. If you are interested in gaming content (and vanilla wow content, once I can have that up with less fear), feel free to sub - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMhZ4XAa6bDAcRnGwnLyPdQ
Most of my current gaming content will be migrating over there eventually, though livestreams will likely happen on the main channel.
