Science ponies, bionics, a new Table Top episode, and great advice on designing factions. Not to mention an aurora video and all manner of beautiful art. Evry week we've got roundups on both TPK and Concept Crucible. I'm off to the Polar Plunge, but will see you tomorrow. Click for gaming! Go to TPK Click for science! Go to Concept Crucible
I hate the cold. I mean it. If cold weather had a face, I would never stop punching it. It’s been varying shades of -20 to -30 Celsius here, with the wind chill, though it finally broke this week. There have to be blogs where people just complain about the weather. This isn’t really about the weather. The freezing isn’t such a big deal, I don’t spend that much time outside. Just to the bus stop, into the office, and back to my home, really. And that’s sort of the problem with the cold. It makes me into a hermit.
I have a love-hate relationship with flat surfaces. I love putting things on them. I will stack objects on top of objects if necessary. I love accumulating them, because more flat surfaces means more places to put things. Now that I don’t have cats, it also means that those objects can be expected to go unmolested (rather than being unceremoniously dumped on the floor). The problem is that I do seem to hate tidying flat surfaces, so while everything has a place, sometimes that place is under a bunch of other shit.
I spent a bunch of this weekend at the very first Tri-Con KW, both as an attendee and as a bit of an exhibitor. People were met, fun was had, videos were shot, and parties were partied. Ideas were had too, more on that when I get things sorted out. I’ve never really done cons before, not until the last year or so, when I went to Vidcon and Fan Expo.
This week I wrote a thing. My friend Andrew at Potato Chip Math is doing a flash fiction challenge every week, and I wanted to participate because I’m desperately trying to remember what it’s like to write fiction. And yes, writing fiction and writing D&D things are different, don’t ask me why, but they feel really different. I also made my first videos of the new year, with my brand new lights that I built with the help of Ryan Consell, super genius and armorer. I’m making a lot more things this year, and I’m hoping to keep up with it and keep the quality up. I have this boundless creative energy some days, and it’s kinda wonderful. For some reason I also still find time to relax. Here’s an update.
