The Deets on AFL’s Ready to Roll D&D Debut!

A Filthy Lot Entertainment Inc (AFL) is “Ready to Roll” with their in-house team playing Dungeons and Dragons. The watch party will begin on National D&D Day, Nov 5th, at 3:30pm (PST) on Twitch! They’ll also offer some pretty cool prizes post episode for those who can answer the tough trivia. Who knows, maybe the answers are tucked within the reveals in the information presented here too. 

Instead of bringing recognizable personalities to play the game on YouTube, this show brings talents from all walks of life together–mostly those who moved to Vancouver, BC to pursue a career in the film or entertainment industry–to enjoy the game as its always been designed for: to have fun, sling a sword and throw spells around. “They tried in the past with a cartoon and a movie in 2002 to make D&D into a cinematic experience, but the biggest mistake is that they scripted it. D&D is often improvised,” said Chris Livingston and Trevor Gemma, founders of this company.

What will be presented is how ‘As the world of Altero turns.’ Roz Young and Matt Baker created this techno-fantasy realm that the AFL senior staff took a liking to and want to realize as a series. “The main global conflict is the fight for technology and magic dominance, related control over the portals that link parts of this world for fast travel but also to the alternate dimension, where tech can be fused with magic,” said the creators. “Orleana is the country that controls most of the portals and the link from Altero Nought to Altero Prime.”

On Why Music Matters in Macross: Past, Present & Future

After catching the livestream of Macross Delta Tactical Sound Unit—1st LIVE in Zepp—Walküre Attack! last month, I was curious. How has the music of this fond anime franchise fared over the years? Mari Iijima defined everything that is the sound of the 90s series, and maintained it! The talents who would take over in the sequels adapted to the times and generally honour this singer’s original legacy. From Sharon Apple to Sheryl Nome, the sound has changed. It sometimes transcend pop and become something that we can equate to Lady Gaga’s shows in our world.

This concert shows why music is important to this franchise’s success. The nature of these performances plays on a musical theory I believe is at the core of the series. Boethius is a Roman philosopher who once said music can be broken up to three components. They are musica mundana (a universal appeal), musica humana (the internal sound heard by the human body) and musica quae (the harmonies projected by singers and instrumentalists).
