David Mamet and Political Views

There’s an essay over at The Vil­lage Voice that you want to read before it goes away: “Why I Am No Longer a ‘Brain-Dead Lib­er­al’ ” by David Mamet Here’s a brief excerpt. This is, to me, the syn­the­sis of this world­view with which I now found myself dis­en­chant­ed: that every­thing is always wrong. But in my […]

Mouse-Mouse and WordPress Oddity

I will not pro­vide a pho­to, but I fig­ure this point­ing device would be all-too pop­u­lar with any felines or canines in your house­hold. I would­n’t ever have imag­ined such a thing if the Instructa­bles peo­ple had­n’t sent out an email plea to who­ev­er abduct­ed Mouse-Mouse from their table at SXSW to please return him. […]

I Will Try Not to Bore You

But tonight’s game was real­ly, real­ly good, and even though we ret­conned some­thing and most GMs would­n’t be as accom­mo­dat­ing as Sam, he man­aged to make a new thing damn near as dif­fi­cult (or more so than) the old thing, and how is it that he has so much sto­ry in there? Oh! He also brought […]

Sunday and Homework

I’ve got to stop this. I keep pro­cras­ti­nat­ing each week, so I end up with a bunch of home­work to do on Sun­day. Blah. I know per­fect­ly well that I should­n’t do that because I can’t count on being able to focus on any par­tic­u­lar day. I even advised oth­er stu­dents with FMS against procrastinating, […]

Winter Semester Grades

A week into the Spring semes­ter, I final­ly got my Win­ter semes­ter grades: 99.7 in the career class, 97.6 in the project man­age­ment class. I should still have a 4.0, then. I’ve got to get my and Katie’s FAF­SAs done. I should have already done it. It feels so weird to think about the fact that […]

I want to see Darkon

An LJ friend post­ed about this movie today, with a link to Feel the Sting of My Foam Sword: A must-see doc­u­men­tary about LARP­ing. I haven’t LARPed, but I’m fas­ci­nat­ed. It sounds as if the doc­u­men­tary was done with respect for the play­ers. The arti­cle cer­tain­ly is more accept­ing of the pas­time that most journalism. […]

SBQ: What do you do with completed patterns?

This week’s ques­tion is the first of some recy­cled ques­tions. It was first asked back in 2005, and I don’t think I even knew about SBQ then, so I doubt that I’ve answered it before. After you stitch a pat­tern or kit, what do you do with it? I’ve done so few kits that they hardly […]
