Connell Kirkland wants dirt on Sonny McGuiness, a prospector who has quite possibly found the most-valuable metal deposit ever discovered. To get that dirt, he needs info from the one person who knows Sonny better than anyone — metallurgist Herbert Darker, who has analyzed Sonny’s finds for decades. To get that info from Herbert, Connell has enlisted the services of Kayla Meyers … former NSA agent who specializes in retrieving information, by any means necessary.Continue Reading →

While on Vacation with his dog, Ghost, in San Francisco, Joe Ledger has been asked to investigate the murder of two DEA agents. The suspects? Tres Hermanos Orco — the Orc Brothers. So named because they reportedly look like actual orcs. Blood analysis of samples allegedly left behind by one of the Orc Brothers shows a strange, third sex chromosome — not an X or a Y, but one shaped like a Z. The supercomputer MindReader found a mitochondrial DNA match to that blood, with one Jebediah Erickson, resident of San Francisco. Ledger was greeted by SFPD Inspector Lawrence “Pookie” Chang, who took Ledger to Erickson’s mansion. Just one thing — Erickson looks to be 30, but he’s supposed to be in his 80s. Something fishy is afoot. As Ledger and Ghost sit down to talk to Erickson, and Erickson’s dog Emma, Ledger starts to separate truth from lies and the blood will flowContinue Reading →

StorySmack Episode #34
THE LAST JEDI has come under fire for nonsensical plot elements and characters making LOST-esque idiotic decisions, but if we jump in the WayBack Machine™ and take a look at RETURN OF THE JEDI, we find that nonsensical might be endemic to all STAR WARS movies — read also, if there was a “plan” to rescue Han, what the hell was it, and how did it go so wrong?
This episode was inspired by Mike Ryan’s article at Uproxx on the same topic.Continue Reading →
