I build worlds, not houses

I can’t say I have never felt out of my element–I’ve lived with generalised anxiety disorder for a long time now, so I’m no stranger to discomfort–but there is a special kind of awkwardness that comes over me when I have to go into a hardware store, be it Lowe’s …

This Is A Thing That Actually Happened

I’ve played World of Warcraft on and off since 2007, and have seen my share of joke NPC names, such as Gordie Lapforge the goblin, Haris Pilton, and Siouxsie the Banshee. By contrast, Lord of the Rings Online has remained consistent in its use of either canon names for NPCs …

Generation WTF

Random Fact About Me: The three most influential TV shows of my formative years were The X-Files, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Mystery Science Theatre 3000. To this day, I don’t trust the government about aliens, I believe humanity can outgrow bigotry and greed and unite for the common …

The Case of the Strange Fan Fiction

After a day of slaving over act two of Terra Paradox, I decided that I needed to do some more reading. So I took out my Munchkin (what I named my Kindle) and picked The Hound of the Baskervilles back up. Well, that was working out rather well until I …

So, I have a blog

Even though I seem to have forgotten that fact. Instead of trying to compose some eloquent prose this time, I’m voting for expediency in getting you caught up to speed. So, in no particular order, here’s a list of this summer’s memorable and noteworthy events, minus whatever I end up …

Post-Apocalypse Photo #2 – Faerie Rapture

This photo was taken by an Android retro camera called ‘Little Yellow Box’. I captured this little one flitting about my desk, like she didn’t happen to have a million better places to be than the cesspool of banality that is the cubicle farm. I managed to engage her in …

Post-Apocalypse Picture Series #1 – I’m a playa.

So, the apocalypse came and went and nobody noticed. Sometime during the weekend, I downloaded a new app for my Android phone, which turns the camera into various retro cameras. I took this picture with the camera named ‘FudgeCan’, but don’t ask me what the hell that means. It’s the …

La Zona del Silencio: Paralelo 27

Don’t worry about trying to translate that. It is the title of a movie that I purchased at K-Mart for $3. There is apparently enough of a Hispanic population in the Colonial Park area for there to be an unexpected variety of Spanish-language DVD’s in the cheapo rack. I did …

penises

No, really, why?

Three days into November is a little early to check my webalizer stats, but in a moment of idleness I checked to see how my sites are doing so far this month. Only one search string has impacted my site this month so far, and I just had to share …
