Dead Time

I've had this on my calendar for weeks. Really looking forward to seeing it.

Islands in the Midwest

The images in the slideshow, I mean. And by Harvey, I mean the Pooka.

Islands in the Midwest

I really dig these. They look like portraits of Harvey to me.

Shoots & Daggers

Chris and smerdyakov: it's not really clear from the article that he set out to create something that was intentionally amateur-looking, especially given this sentence: "He wanted to turn Don't Drop the Soap into a real, mass-produced board game, complete with glossy box, plastic pieces, directions, all the works." That makes it sound like he was trying to make it look at least halfway professionally done. Seriously, if you're using Photoshop and Illustrator to create the visuals for your game, you've shelled out a wad. It really doesn't look like John put those pricey tools to best use. It reminds me of another game that was all edge and no skill: Bad Day L.A.

Shoots & Daggers

Please tell me that the game he's posing with is the prototype and not the actual production game. It looks almost intentionally poorly done. Also, $40 is way too much to spend on a board game.

Back to the drawing board, John. (And move out of the house, for crying out loud.)

Kill the Humbug

Nice article. It's pretty easy to get cynical about the holidays, but you're definitely right that volunteering or doing other worthwhile stuff makes it easier to take your mind off the materialist aspects. For example, last year a few friends of mine and all gave blood the day after Christmas. We called it the Boxing Day Blood Drive, and after we donated we went to Free State and had dinner and a beer. Saved lives, ate good food and drank good beer -- the whole thing was a lot of fun, and we're doing it again this year.

If any of you "homies" feel like donating the day after Christmas, shoot me a message through the site here or via e-mail (my username at Donate with me and my crew and -- if you are of age -- I'll buy you a pint of beer at Free State afterwards.

Bad ass Christmas gift guide

Nicely done, especially the public library card idea.

Get rid of your TV altogether, Misty. It'll help you finish that NaNoWriMo novel. (Trust me: I'm working on one, too.)
