It’s my pleasure to announce that the second episode of The Paid to Play Podcast produced in conjunction with Brazen Careerist is live – and it’s also my pleasure to announce the all new home of The Paid to Play Podcast at paidtoplay.com.au! I’ve been meaning to sort out a separate home for the podcast… well, [...]
You know what it’s like: whether it’s a new item of clothing or game or movie or television show, you just can’t wait until you get that new shiny thing and use tit make your life awesome!
Yeah, I get that way, too. Thankfully, it’s a mostly harmless urge, and it’s fun to share around with like minded folks!
I also find that talking about the latest crush helps me not indulge in it.
So come see whether what got me squeeing did the same for you too!
On and off since I moved to Cairns, I’ve been in the odd effort to get a tabletop roleplaying game scene moving. Most recently, I set a Facebook group up and helped the newly-opened KerSplatt! Comics and Collectables choose which products to stock its RPG and card gaming shelf with. Yet for all my enthusiasm [...]
It’s a tricky thing, nostalgia, and it’s been pulling at me lately. See, those wicked folks at KerSplatt! Comics and Collectables got in some new kit recently – and one of the items was a copy of Android: Netrunner – The Card Game. Netrunner was one of the jewels of the mid-nineties Trading Card Game glut that died [...]
All you folks who’ve been hanging out to read more about the Foxy Lady, my apologies for the delay! It’s been over a month since the last Born to be Mild article. In all fairness, not much has happened in the meantime – until last weekend, when a whole heap of stuff happened at once! [...]
Wow! Um, I’m sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but not only wasn’t I expecting you, but I’m also a little word-less right now! See, when Vickie turned to me and showed me Rob Pyne’s link on Facebook to his posting about this very web log (my wife and I have side-by-side computers, you see)… well, I [...]
From the new blog’s about page: I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo, the annual (inter)National Novel Writing Month, for two years running, and am currently undertaking my third tilt. This blog is my way of keeping myself writing, but not in an attempt to keep myself accountable. Instead, it’s a way to keep myself having fun.
Episode 10 of the Paid to Play Podcast goes live tomorrow. My fledgling podcast will have hit double-digit episodes. That, friends, is pretty freaking awesome! What’s even more awesome is the thought that I could well keep on going until I hit one hundred episodes. Why not, after all? I’m enjoying my interviews, making new [...]
A few weeks ago, I purchased myself a copy of the PC game, FTL. IT was a cheap buy at around $10 (or around 4 weeks of saving on the old Geek on Three Bucks a Week budget). Within short order I discovered it’s also one of the most fun games I’ve played all year. [...]
My poor rig was around a year overdue for a clean out. I evicted at least two families of dust bunnies from within its case on the weekend. A few weeks earlier, I uninstalled the beta client for an upcoming MMO called Firefall. Much as I wanted to keep it handy for when I interview [...]
