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.
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
I haven’t written a whole lot here in the past couple months, but it looks like that’s going to be changing. All of my time had been taken up by running my Earthdawn game and preparing for Privateer Press Weekend here in St. Louis but now that both of those are passed I should have … Read more
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.
2007: A Blarg Odyssey
Another year has come and gone and the blog has stuck around – a feat that comes somewhat as a surprise to me. I’m more than a bit of a dabbler and tend to find new things to do quickly but somehow managed to keep up with posting. Between battle reports, my RPG campaigns, and … Read more
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.
Database Server Upgrade
I upgraded the database behind my instance of WordPress so any visitors should experience an improvement in page load times. I’ve also been working on some new posts behind the scenes and hope to get those out soon. In addition I’ve joined a new gaming group and have some more experiences and observations to inspire … Read more
Delayed Blast Fireblarg
Turns out that running a campaign, trying to keep up with session write-ups, and doing a blarg just don’t work well together. I don’t have enough time to tackle all three sufficiently, so things have suffered for it. I’ve already decided to drop the detailed session write-ups and switch over to some basic overviews and … Read more
A New Year of Blarg
Christmas has past and it’s now 2007 and the beginning of the year looks like it’s going to be busy for me. It’s T-minus a week and a half until I start running my Earthdawn game. Even though it’s only going to be five to six sessions long I want to do enough prep work … Read more
