Spirit of 1984 should be the title

Pretty bitchin’ homemade shirt someone had at Pinballz. A Terminator T-something, the kind without the human covering riding a luck dragon from The Neverending Story for those who don’t recognize the white creature. The wearer’s husband has good Photoshop skills so … Continue reading

One hundred days against Baba Yaga!

FINALLY! I managed to get through the day 100 times without becoming seriously ill or contracting a serious case of the fuckits. Getting across the finish line this week was relatively easy since Thanksgiving puts America closer to the slash … Continue reading

Two hundred and fifty gym days!

Pretty good milestone achieved yesterday but the 2020 nightmare isn’t going to happen due to there being only 30-plus days left. Three hundred will have to be next year’s goal.

LEGO® devours Brick Link

I don’t think this is going to be a merger of equals and I remain skeptical about how it will work out. Brick Link has been the place for LEGO Master Builders and casual builders (like me) to get pieces or … Continue reading

I adopted a new kitty!

Now that my divorce was finalized recently, I went out and did something I wanted to do right away…adopt a second cat to keep Isis company. Cats do better when they have a companion. Since finding her sibling(s) is impossible … Continue reading

My friend Amy and I went to a Big Night dinner!

Italian food is my favorite cuisine and I think it would be even I were zero percent Italian. After my one-year exile in Raleigh-Durham, I gained a much greater appreciation of it through a great restaurant called il Sogno (The Dream) because … Continue reading

Rest in Peace Angel

Yesterday, my friends Alaire and Tom had to say goodbye to their last remaining kitty and good friend Angel. It was sad for me too because I had known the furry little guy all his life too. Angel amazingly lived … Continue reading

Some overdue levity and cheer and mudita

Alright alright alright. No, don’t say it like Matthew McConaughey. I’m just posting something a tad nicer after my rather heavy screed on how Kapitalism gets a pass in America. This was pretty inspiring to see on someone’s minivan around … Continue reading

Which one is the pyramid scheme that rips you off?

The answer……BOTH! Last weekend, I went to a little toy convention at the makeshift convention space in what used to be Northcross Mall and these two operations where in other halls on a Saturday. Hey, at least my money went … Continue reading

Robobarrista isn’t much of a threat

I gave this machine a whirl while I was at WizWorld last weekend. The verdict? Humans don’t have much to fear with this hunk of mediocrity. Firstly, a person could’ve made my drink twice as fast. Secondly, it’s just eye … Continue reading

Another pro D&D editorial…hooray!

Times sure have changed since I was a teenager/college student. Back when the SCLM wrote about Dungeons & Dragons, it was 99% of time the Santanic Panic bullshit or how it was a factor in some misfit’s demise. Well, lazy … Continue reading

The Bride!

There’s an old grade-school joke regarding the Bride of Frankenstein (which I guess was supposed to be the monster’s bride). Ready? Why did the Bride freak out when she saw the monster for the first time? Because his nuts were … Continue reading
