A sales post: My hand carved wands on Etsy

Yesterday I listed two new magic wands in the Etsy shop, and since it's a struggle to be heard amidst the noise, I thought I'd try to amplify the signal here a little bit.

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 →

I assume you've heard of Root by now. If you're behind the curve like me and wondering why all the hype, check out this excellent review. Anybody got a copy I could borrow? h/t rockymountainnavy.wordpress.com

No, there's no such thing as overthinking Tolkien! But if there were, the Armchair Corporal blog might have just done it with Gandalf's plan to enter Mordor. I like it!
