Weekend Update

We had a very nice week­end, fair­ly qui­et for me (as usu­al). Katie went out with her beau Fri­day night, and Sam and I final­ly got to see the first sea­son 2 Torch­wood episode, “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.” It was worth the wait! I won­der how much BBC Amer­i­ca bowd­ler­ized it? Unfor­tu­nate­ly, we don’t have […]

Pirates!

Not the nice, John­ny Depp kind, no. The pillage/rape/murder sort spiced up with demon-wor­­ship­ping shark peo­ple. Tonight was date night, and I was impa­tient to be back to our game. We’d left off at a very unre­solved point the last time we played, before the week­end. It would be almost impos­si­ble for some­one else to […]

TotD: Robin Laws on Roleplaying Games

I had­n’t ever thought of it this way, but I think the man is on to some­thing. “One of my pet the­o­ries about the pop­u­lar­i­ty of role­play­ing games goes like this. Role­play­ing is fan­ta­sy shop­ping for guys. That is, men would, as a group, be more inter­est­ed in shop­ping if a) it meant nev­er having […]

Date Night Happiness

My sweet­ie had to run a bunch of errands before he got home last night, which short­ened our date a bit. Gro­ceries were need­ful, though. We had some deli­cious deli-style sand­wich­es after he got home, so there was­n’t a kitchen mess to deal with, too. I think we watched an episode of West Wing while eating. […]

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 […]

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. […]

Semester Done!

I took my project man­age­ment final tonight, so I’m done with the semes­ter! Now I’m try­ing to down­load the text­book files for next semes­ter, but the ebook serv­er is hav­ing issues.  In the mean­time, I’m lis­ten­ing to some love­ly new music, free and legal, over at The­Six­ty­One. I don’t know how Sam found out about […]
