Industrial outlaw country: What I’m listening to

Yes, that's a real thing. Shooter Jennings and his dad Waylon (you may have heard of him) got together on a project they called Fenixon. And it. Is. Awesome. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIqrniRy81pWWueofzuqBDPdW0r_v0MJ_ I've never been a fan of country music, nor have I generally given industrial the time of day, but I really like this. I've never... Continue Reading →

A quote

The paradox of the arts is that they are all made up and yet they allow us to get at truths about who and what we are or might be. - Seamus Heaney (h/t Cristian Mihai, irevuo.art)

Hufflepuffery: The Etsy shop is open

Well, I did it. The first listing went live Sunday night, and yesterday I finished stocking the store. Well, not finished finished, because there's more on the way, but enough to get started with. I hope you'll take a couple minutes and go check out the Hufflepuffery shop on Etsy. And if you happen to know... Continue Reading →

Another gaming thing I got totally wrong

Digging into the excellent Emperor's Notepad blog, I came across this post: You are (probably) doing it wrong: Hit points, literature, and D&D. Oh, really? You're going to defend hit points?

Guns were involved, of course -- he used a double-barreled shotgun in all his robberies -- but he never fired a shot. His robberies were always very well... Continue Reading →

Hufflepuffery: Practicing product photography

Nate Champion’s last stand

For years, Champion and his small ranch had been a thorn in the side of the Wyoming Stock Growers' Association, a cabal of the biggest ranchers in the Johnson County area. The cattlemen insisted that Champion and his fellow small settlers were rustlers, constantly stealing cattle out of the bigger... Continue Reading →

The most metal deaths in Middle Earth

I'm halfway through a post on how I was wrong about the stupid pointlessness of hit points, but I had to stop writing it (temporarily, I promise) because I can't not post this right now. Someone has made a list of the most metal deaths in Middle Earth, and you'd better believe they're not just metal,... Continue Reading →
