Debbie Downer says:

If they were any good he would have released them already.  I generally have that attitude with most posthumously released art.   For the most part the best we can hope for is good but unfinished.

Could go either way, but Kurt was massively self-critical and some of his best works were passed over initially.

I don't think that attitude is justified at all. It all depends on the artist, the publishers and other circumstances, but some of the world's greatest literary works were released posthumously. 

I'll pick a nit, at least one of those was really written by a co-author.  There are also lists of books that shouldn't have been published.  Amusingly, Ralph Ellison appears on both lists. 

My attitude is justified because at worst, I'll get what I expect but I might be pleasantly surprised.  Its why I quite liked the Dark Tower film where so many other people were disappointed.   :P

POO!

I was going to try and run my game this weekend.

Oh well.  I work on setting up the char sheet & monsters instead.

I can play on Friday or Sunday, just not Saturday.

I love how people are yelling at their TVs about those athletes dare to not stand, while they are sitting on their couch yelling at the same instant.

This is cool, because I thought his short stories were his best work, among the best in the form.

Maybe we should just skip this weekend.

I think we'll need Morvis, PANTS! and Harry together for the first part of the next session, and we'll definitely need Random Poet for the second half. This next session will hopefully open some new doors, introduce new conflicts and advance the narrative to the next level.

In the military you stand and salute for morning and evening colors. There's a warning (played on a trumpet) to let anyone marching know colors is coming, and then a call to attention (also on trump) before colors is played. At the call to attention you will see people sprinting to get indoors so they don't have to stand still for two minutes. Those people then go on to cry about football players kneeling.
