My List (It’s a big one)

You may or may not know this, but from the very beginning of me writing this blog (yes, all the way back in August of 2014) I’ve been abiding to a list of certain movies, TV shows, games, and so forth that I wanted to talk about. I’ve been doing them in the order of that list, crossing names out as I post each blog (I’m a bit OCD like that). I’ve been tempted to show you guys this list, but have decided against it until now. But now, I think it’s time you know. So here it is, the list of things I’m going to review if life doesn’t get in the way (this doesn’t include any dinosaur news that I wish to talk about when it hits, like new Jurassic World info or a cool new discovery).

A show I’ve never actually seen.

Trope-osaurus: Velociraptor vs Protoceratops

Like T. rex vs Triceratops, only smaller.

Well, that’s myplan so far. I’ll only change it for Jurassic World news/reviews, as that takes precedent, or any other dinosaur news I would like to talk about. Tell me what you think. And don’t worry, that volcano Trope-osaurus is stillcoming. After that, this is what you should expect to see. Hopefully, I’ll still be writing these up to that point. So, what happens if I finish all these?

Either hope some new stuff comes out, or start scraping the bottom of the barrel.

  1. I know a good book called TimeSpike by Eric Flint & Mercedes Lackay. It has a bunch of dinosaurs like stegosaurus, velociraptor, t-rex, Spanish conquistadors. Don’t worry, it makes sense.

    Maybe you can also post speculative pieces about dinosaurs. Talk about theories you and other people have that haven’t been proven, like feathered sauropods, feathered stegosaurs, feathered etc, Carnivorous ceratopsians, ceratopsians that mimic sounds like mockingbirds, lots of crazy theories. What REALLY killed the dinosaurs (Deccan traps are regaining traction recently)

    1. That sounds like an excellent idea. Perhaps I’ll call the segment “Saurian Speculations”.
      I couldn’t find too much info on TimeSpike, is it it’s own book or a part of a series.
      Speaking of cool looking dinosaur novels, a book that’s coming out later this year that i’m really excited for is Dinosaur Lords, which has been said to be basically Game of Thrones with dinosaurs. The cover art has been released.

      It looks incredible, and i hope to get a copy and review it here.

    1. Hmm, the Great Wroggi looks like a Baryonyx to me.
      I’m actually pretty nostalgic when it comes to the turtles, but I understand if people don’t like them. However, the comic I want to review with them features some of the best dinosaur reconstructions I’ve ever seen in popular media, with all the dinosaurs feathered or quilled (even the herbivores, and it even And yes, I’ve seen that trailer. I’m not sure if the movie is real, but if it is, I’m sure it’s going to be an existential experience.

      1. i can see why you liked the turtles but they have annoyed me for some reason my hole life.
        but that they put feathers on all of there dinosaurs is something i find something good.
        (ps i was actually ranting on the new turtles i’m young too have seen the old.)

  2. Would you mind doing a review of Robert Mash’s book How To Keep Dinosaurs? It was a spoof pet-owner’s manual that serves as a guide to keeping dinosaurs and pterosaurs as house pets, farm animals, zoo animals, etc. It’s iffy as far as accuracy goes (i.e. Velociraptor is shown with feathers but Deinonychus is not, and several species are classified in the wrong groups), but the funniest part is the often innuendo-filled meanings that it makes up for dinosaur names. For example, it says “Euoplocephalus” means “Well-tooled Point, in reference to its fertility.”

  3. I’ve read the book, and it’s interesting to say the least. I haven’t really thought about reviewing too many books, because the blog Love In The Time Of Chasmosaurs specializes in that, and I wanted to create my own thing (I haven’t come across a blog that specifically reviewed dinosaur media as it’s main focus). However, I’m not against ruling that out, and if I find something interesting enough, I’ll certainly review it (and that book is certainly interesting enough).

      1. Perhaps, if I can think of enough things to talk about. I like to review works that have a nice balance of accurate, inaccurate, cliche and absolutely weird, so that i have plenty to write on. There are only so many times I can repeat ‘this dinosaur should have feathers’ and ‘this dinosaur looked different’.

    1. Hmm, reminds me a lot of Parasaurolophus, while the larger green one reminds me of a Suchomimus. Maybe I should review this game series one day. I usually have a thing that I prefer to review things with actual dinosaurs and not creatures that are based on them (I almost wanted to do a review on Godzilla but didn’t for that reason) but I think these guys are interesting enough to look at. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about the game series (not that I think it’s bad or anything), so I’ll have to do a LOT of research if I want to properly review it.
