I spent much of yesterday and the night before in tears. I woke up Saturday morning with a slight twinge in my lower back. It wasn’t bad, but was just annoying. I chalked it up to sleeping wrong or something, and I couldn’t think of anything I’d actually done to tweak it. Sunday and Monday… Continue reading Thursdays are the new Ouch
Apparently, Thursday is now the Cool Kid™ of the week these days. Currently I run a game of GammaWorld – a fun and ridiculous role playing game I’d quickly describe as sort of Mad Max meets Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – on alternating Thursdays. And once we wrap up this campaign – Famine in… Continue reading Thursday is the new Black
I just read about Ubuntu Edge and have to say, I’m impressed. The idea that a smartphone would be your next computer isn’t a giant leap – for many tablets have already replaced desktops/laptops for many – but I really like what they’ve put together. This video explains it well and is well worth a… Continue reading Ubuntu Edge – The Next “Desktop”?
Dear friends, family, acquaintances, frenemies, and arch-nemeses, It’s with a heavy heart that I bear bad news, but Bea and I are parting ways. It’s not a decision or situation that’s been taken lightly. We both share a deep fondness for a past version of us and our relationship, and will always cherish those memories… Continue reading The Splitting of “We” to “You” and “Me”
Been wanting to do this for a while – finally got around to it. I made a Dr. Who / Dalek themed lock screen for my Samsung Galaxy SIII. Behold: Dalock! Yeah. Sometimes you need to take an (in)sanity break and do something dumb/wonderful. Go here if you want to use it for your phone.… Continue reading Dalock
1) Sorry about the backposting the other day, LJ people. My LJ crossposter borked. Thankfully, I found a new one. And while it seems to have a hard time remembering default settings, it still works/updates. 2) I re-themed the site from scratch. I really like this over the last few incarnations (but especially the last… Continue reading General Updates
So, it’s been five full months with the solar array, and four since I last updated (solar panel system description here). The electrical portion of my bill since the beginning of February has totaled $40. Yeah. Forty whole dollars. Take a look at the data for the last four years: 2010 2011 2012 2013 Feb… Continue reading Ongoing Solar Savings
This past Saturday was Free RPG Day and I headed over to +1 Gaming, my Friendly Local Gaming Store, to pick up some free shit and to buy some new dice for a friend in one of my games. I made sure that I’d be there soon after opening to get a module by Paizo… Continue reading We Be Goblins (Too)!
Nerds. Love nerds. It’s really neat how fans and the subjects of their fandom can connect. Still stupid excited for December.

My friend Matthew (Skip) is running a game of Call of Cthulhu for a bunch of us nerds. It takes place here in New Orleans, in 1928-1929 (Sourcebook). Besides the obvious Cthulhu awesomeness (yaaaaay H.P. Lovecraft!), I thought the setting would provide for really good roleplaying and collaborative storytelling. We weren’t being dropped into some… Continue reading The Old Man and the River
