It’s Caturday! Without my cats.

September 25th, 2010 · 4:13 pm  →  September 2010

Spent a lovely day on State Street in a sea of red. (HINT: Badger Game). Picked up a few treats for matt_m_mcelroy at the Farmer’s Market and a new cactus for yours truly. Here’s hoping Archimedes V will NOT be eaten by my cats. So far, I have not had the best of luck with […]

The Time Has Come…

September 24th, 2010 · 4:53 pm  →  September 2010

…for me to talk openly about my views on feminism. I have finally figured out a way to express my views, which will be necessary in the coming months. (HINT: Especially before WisCon.) The short of it, is that I do not like the word “feminist.” My relationship with words is semantic and contextual, just […]

I have thoughts…

September 24th, 2010 · 12:42 am  →  September 2010

…which means I’m writing and researching like crazy. Have been sharing some things here and there, but still trying to find that balance between “Hey, do you read books? Wouldn’t you like to read my stories? YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.” sorts of promotions versus “Yes, I do play games. Yes, I read a lot. […]

2010.09.21 A Modern Alchemist’s View on Food

September 21st, 2010 · 8:04 pm  →  Alchemy September 2010

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been obsessing about the idea that a modern alchemist would be appalled by the food that we eat. Potassium Benzoate. Calcium Disodium Edta. Brominated Vegetable Oil. (And that’s just a few of the ingredients in the pop I’m drinking!) The question is: Why? Well, first — I probably […]

In Which I “Go There”

September 20th, 2010 · 5:29 pm  →  September 2010

Yesterday, some heavy drama came across my desk. I tried to avoid it, but found that I couldn’t. There are only a few things that press my buttons: intolerance happens to be one of them. Sadly, I knew I was in trouble when I started writing a philosophical conversation between two characters in the story […]

2010.09.17 The Modern Alchemist

September 17th, 2010 · 10:36 am  →  September 2010

When I checked in with you the last time, I talked about how I wanted to get behind what motivates William and some of the other Alchemists in this book. To do that, I wanted to live as one of them so I could better describe them without boring you to death with long diatribes […]

2010.09.03 Fear and Transformation

September 3rd, 2010 · 12:22 pm  →  September 2010

Things have been interesting lately, because ever since I stopped working the “day job” there’s been a lot of opportunities that have popped up, which have mostly been a lot of talk. Summer is one of those seasons where people are more focused on vacations than anything else. Summer, unfortunately for me, is very difficult […]

Oh, Wikipedia…

August 20th, 2010 · 9:43 am  →  August 2010 News & New Releases

Dreamt about The Law of Fours last night and several numbers. 14, 27 in particular. So, because I don’t have access to a library here, I hopped to Google and started poking around, which led me to the entry on Discordianism and others. Oh, Wikipedia.

Cthulhu Sez: Eat Your Link Salad

August 18th, 2010 · 5:16 pm  →  August 2010

Cthulhu here. So, I know that your first instinct may be to run away screaming, but instead I’m going to tell you to stick around. I promise I won’t eat you for at least five minutes, which should give you plenty of time to digest the link salad I’m about to provide you for your […]

2010.08.14 In Between Shows

August 14th, 2010 · 11:00 am  →  August 2010

I’m back from GenCon: Indy and am getting ready to help out with Wizard World: Chicago next weekend. GenCon was a learning experience this year; it was announced that I’m one of the developers for a card game based on the HACK/SLASH comic which is now published through Image. Between promoting the demo with Matt, […]
