Unboxing The Princess and the Goblin.

I got something in the mail!  Let's see what it is!
That's right, in the interest of diversifying what I put up on the old blog, I've decided to create some video content.  I shot this using my Iphone and came to one inevitable conclusion: I need to get a real video camera if I'm going to do this.

Anyway, this is a game that I supported on Kickstarter.  It's so rare for people, at least on this side of the Atlantic, to acknowledge George MacDonald's work that I had to throw some money their way.  There may be more stuff like this in the future depending on how things play out.  I'm not the sort of reviewer that people keep sending tangible stuff to (I'm looking at you, Black Nerd Comedy).  At best, I'll get an advance reader copy of a book in the form of a MOBI file for my kindle.  So, it would mostly be stuff I support on Kickstarter or stuff I order from Amazon.

In terms of other stuff, I have seen Disney's Moana and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and have thought of posts to do connected to them.  At the same time, Kubo and the Two Strings is out on DVD and I'd like to spotlight that.  Also, I still haven't seen The Tale of Tales (I'm still working my way through the new edition of the book which I wanted to read first.  On top of that, I wanted to do some retro reviews of the Cannon Movie Tales films.  There just aren't enough hours in the day for it all.  Also, has anyone else noticed that it's been a long time since I've done a "Folk Tale Secret Stash"?

I'll see what I can get around to as I move forward.

  1. I think the picture quality (and sound) of the video was quite good, but it is a bit narrow--does your phone have a landscape/horizontal setting? Anyway, let us know when you get a chance to play it!
