I’ve been on hiatus from playing Warmachine and Hordes for a quite some time now and although my painting has slowed because of that it hasn’t stopped completely.  I did fall off the website update bandwagon though, and that’s something I aim to fix. Content-wise I’ve started uploading miniatures I’ve painted in the past few years. Read more about Updates?![…]

Octoroks, Tektites, and Leevers too…

During the critical debate as to whether it was more accurate to compare Spiral Knights to either  Gauntlet or Zelda, my peers and I uncovered a few gems from the past for review. And one more that’s a little more recent… But the Famicom version takes the cake. Our debate never actually came to a conclusion after Read more about Octoroks, Tektites, and Leevers too…[…]


farscape During it’s initial run, Farscape was easily my favorite show, one I made sure to catch weekly.  There are a couple episodes of season 3 that I didn’t see but other than that I caught every episode as it debuted on SciFi.

On Episode 53 of The Podgecast, the topic of the Farscape DVD boxed sets and their outrageous prices came up. When licensing changed hands, the season 1 boxed set fell out of print, which subsequently caused the price of the boxed set to skyrocket.

Since I couldn’t get ahold of season 1, I never bothered with the others – I had seen them all as they debuted anyway.  But a few weeks ago I found out I’d have my chance to get my hands on the entire collection at a reasonable price.

Where’s the WIP?

Boy, have I been slacking as of late.  Part of that has been gearing up the Iron Agenda but everything started with the beginning of the summer Con season.  In preparation for Privateer Press Weekend at DieCon here in St. Louis (which I’ve written about already) I joined in with some fellow Podthralls listeners in Read more about Where’s the WIP?[…]

Ceiling Cat is watching you game

Most every Sunday afternoon you can find the gaming group I’m a member of in my basement seated around an old dining room table throwing dice, drinking Dew, and munching Cheetos. In addition to the gaming group, my house has a trio of additional inhabitants – my fiancee and her two cats, Baroness and Puck.

Baroness is a well behaved tailless calico who spends most of the day curled up either in her bed upstairs or on my fiancee’s lap while she reads or watches TV. Puck is the anti-Baroness, who has made it his mission in life to cause whatever grief he can. Any bags of chips left unattended for longer than 30 seconds will be opened and scattered across the kitchen floor when you return. If the garbage disposal doesn’t mince absolutely every bit of food we put down in it, Puck will jump in the sink and try to get food out of the drain. On more than one occasion Puck has knocked a full pan of chili cheese dip – bubbling hot hot mind you – off the stove and onto the kitchen floor. I guess he needed some dip for the chips or something.

Still that didn’t compare to his antics yesterday.


Where’s the Blarg?

I’m not the first person who’s created a blog who’s slowly drifted away from regular updates and I certainly won’t be the last. Unfortunately I just haven’t had the motivation or inspiration to keep things up due to my gaming curse. Karma can bite you in the ass sometimes and after a string of pretty good gaming and scheduling, well, things took a turn for the worse.
