South Bend folks: We have our very own Banksy, y’all. CAD is my new hero. I was going to grab a camera this weekend and go hunting for all the easter-egg stencil art tags I’ve been seeing around town, but s/he saved me the trouble. All it took was a quick search for the signature “CAD flower bomb” I’ve seen in a few places.  I just wish the locations were posted along with the pics, so I could watch for the ones I haven’t spotted yet when I’m out and about.

This – this is a thing that makes me happy.

Let’s be clear about this: I’m still no fan of D&D in any of its incarnations. However, a writer I quite like (Erin Palette of Curse/Or fame) has just published the first installment of her fantasy campaign setting in Claw/Claw/Bite magazine. Erin has posted previews of her Pellatarrum setting on Lurking Rhythmically, but I’m glad to see her RPG work paying off, too.

Go grab a copy of CCB if you can — issue 18 is on sale at RPG Now for $2.99 at the moment.

Also, if you haven’t been to her blog, you really should. Y’know, especially if you’re into “hot goth-girl beseeching action!” Or awesome modern mythic fiction. Or gaming. Or guns. Or Discordianism. Or sarcasm ++. Oh, hell, just go visit her already.

Dammit. I want those boots. So unfair.

Do you have a permit for that?

From wegame.com:

Killer

Yes. Brain is fried, and all the bosses have fled for the afternoon. The cheese stands alone. (Mmm. Cheese.)

Well, okay, now I’m alone. My partner in web-content creation just handed me a bunch of stories to edit and post, and then she fled, too.  Le sigh.

Lovely winter wonderland outside, though. Lovely, and slippery, and frigid.  As if I didn’t already want to go home and build a nest on the couch…

Settling in & SMT:SJ

Well, so far I like WordPress, so that’s a bonus. I plan to mod this theme a bit with my own graphics when I have time, but that will have to wait. Minor annoyance: WP didn’t import the tags with my posts, so I’ll have to go back and re-tag everything. Ah, well.

Also:Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is finally out.  I’m a little concerned that my DS screen isn’t reading input as well as it used to, but hopefully that’s just the fault of the obnoxiously engineered Puzzle Quest Galactrix.
