I’d ramble about the recycled art in this one (panels 4 and 6), but I am very sleepy at the moment.
Anyway, the story below is a 100% true thing that happened to me sometime around 1981.
Mom is driving Shamus and Patrick past the Veterans Hospital. Shamus is about 10 years old and Pat is about 8.
Mom: (Nodding towards the hospital.) Looks like they finished building the gazebo.
Patrick: Who built it?
Mom: The veterans. Someone decided it would be a good thing for the patients so have a project, so they built that gazebo.
Shamus: (Looking at all the many cars in the parking lot.) Which one is the gazebo?
They still tease me about this from time to time.
Shamus Plays LOTRO
As someone who loves Tolkein lore and despises silly MMO quests, this game left me deeply conflicted.
WAY back in 2005, I wrote about a D&D campaign I was running. The campaign is still there, in the bottom-most strata of the archives.
A Lack of Vision and Leadership
People fault EA for being greedy, but their real sin is just how terrible they are at it.
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.
Bad and Wrong Music Lessons
A music lesson for people who know nothing about music, from someone who barely knows anything about music.
