Are You Ready Kids?

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Some days, I have too much free time on my hands.


Crowd Sourcing Results

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

First of all I want to thank everybody for all the suggestions. Who knew that many of my readers really wanted to name a zombie board game?


Crowd Sourcing

Monday, June 28th, 2010

So I have this little project I have been working on for a while, and I have reached a snag.

The title.


Right Now!

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Quickly before someone important notices and fixes it, go to Newsweek’s website.

Seriously right now. I don’t care if you are feeding the homeless, or putting out a fire, or in the midst of surgery. Go there right now.


More Fun With Online School

Monday, March 15th, 2010

I recently started an English Composition class in my online school. I already passed that class previously but the school felt I needed to take it again because “You took it a really long time ago because you are freakishly old to be a student, and besides, we really want you to give us more money.”

I may be paraphrasing.


Best Movie In The History Of Cinema Announced

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Longtime readers may remember when I mentioned that here was a movie called Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

I…Wanna Plagiarize All Night

Monday, March 1st, 2010

So I happened to catch a rather interesting news development. It seems that Nick Simmons, unhealthy son of famous musician Gene Simmons has his own comic book, called Incarnate.


From the Game Store

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

I have taken to playing tabletop wargames again.  It’s my one night out away from the kids each week, and I love my wife for letting me do this.

As anybody familiar with the particular brand of nerdom can tell you, you wind up bringing a lot of stuff with you when you play these sorts of games.  I myself have taken to packing my gaming accessories into a pampers box.  It’s just the right size, is fairly durable, and has handles.


My Time At Gen Con

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

As I mentioned earlier, I got to go to Gen Con a little over a week ago, and stuff went pretty well.

First of all, I got to meet one of my favorite authors and artists, Howard Taylor.  We have spoken to each other online, and I was very shocked to learn he was a fan of my list.


Pants Pants Revolution

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

1. “Wow, your pants smell fascinating today.”

– My wife, as her cat dug his claws into me and wedged his nose into my pants leg.  It was like he was trying to do a line of catnip off of my calf.

2. “Aw, lookit how cute she is. Isn’t she just adorable? Look at how AAAAAAAAUUUUGH! Get it out of my pants! Get it out of my pants!”

– Me, approximately ten minutes after bringing my first ferret home.

3. “Hey! It’s been years since I forgot to put on pants before I left the house.”

– Again my wife, who once accidentally went out to smoke wearing a trenchcoat and a long shirt, but no pants. (My wife insists that I point out that we don’t smoke any more, because evidently that is the part of that story that could make her look bad.)

4. “Those are rather unfortunate pants.”

-A friend of mine while watching “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things”.  If you watch this movie you will understand.

5. “Okay, I suppose that it makes perfect sense for you to have a pair of Spongebob pants to match your wife’s Spongebob lingerie. Now why does your wife have Spongebob lingerie?”

– My brother-in-law, to me and my wife.  We were visiting and discovered that we had forgotten to bring anything to sleep in.  Since we were bedding down on an air mattress, in the living room we went to Wal-mart to purchase sleepwear, so that we would not traumatize our niece.  We decided to go with a Spongebob theme on the assumption that it would freak our hosts out.  Also I was amused to discover the existence of Spongebob lingerie.

6. “Now that you mention it, yes. The talking pickle has been in his pants.”

– On a camping trip I had in my possession an awesome pair of pirate pants, and a talking Larry the Cucumber doll.

I combined them to so that I appeared to have a gargantuan wang, that spouted ham-fisted Christian propaganda when it was smacked. Alcohol may have been involved.

Please note: Creating a situation where funny things happen when people punch you int he junk is probably not the best idea in the world.

7. “Are we going to label the things that have been in his pants?”
“No we are going to label the things that have not been in his pants. It’s faster.”

After the Larry incident my friends were understandably cautious about handling things in the vicinity of my tent.  A labeling system was created.

8. “I have to tell you something that might disturb you. Two lesbians have just had sex in your pants.”

If you have a set of awsome pirate pants, be cautious of camping drama majors.  They will steal your pants, and then do stuff in them.
