The graphics are super cool and Jeff Bridges is back, but I kinda giggled because he sorta looks like The Dude (His Dudeness, Duder, El Duderino) in The Big Lebowski. That light cycle holds the room together, Dude.

Still working on setting up regional readings for Conquering Venus. Phone calls and emails are out, so just waiting for dates. North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida in that order if all goes well.
