A Lonely Recipe

Found this lying face-up in a grocery store parking lot. Decided to give it a good home. Haven’t tried the recipe yet.

Latest YouTube Videos

I think this warrants a blog post: Two days ago, I released a WordPress plugin. It’s called Latest YouTube Videos, and it displays the most recent 1 to 10 videos from a given YouTube account in the sidebar of a WordPress blog. Requires no extra plugins or frameworks; just install and use (it uses HTML […]

One Year of Tabletop RPG Sales

About a year ago, I published two role-playing PDFs, an adventure (War in the Deep) and a sandbox setting (The City of Talon). I posted my earnings-to-date six months ago. Here’s what I’ve earned since then: Sales For The Past Six Months (June-November 2009) Product Number of Sales Gross Net War in the Deep 4 $20.00 $13.00 The City of Talon 3 $15.00 $9.75 TOTAL 7 $35.00 $21.75 Sales For The Past Year (November 2008-November […]

Role-Playing on Wave

What makes Google Wave work for role-playing games? I’ve been playing around with Google Wave for a few weeks now, primarily with role-playing Waves. These are Waves in which people pretend to be characters in a story. There are tons of ways to role-play; sitting around a table, over live text chat, or on a […]

Gundam X

Note: This is part of my attempt to review every Gundam show that I’ve seen, which is almost all of them. This is a spoiler-free review, though I do describe the show’s premise and villains. After War: Gundam X was the third Gundam series set in its own timeline, and it suffered for it. G […]

Fight! Mobile Fighter G Gundam

This is the latest in a series of reviews about every Gundam series that I’ve seen (which, at this point, is almost all of them). My last review focused on Gundam Wing, but let’s back up for a minute. Before that, and after Victory Gundam, Sunrise decided to expand into new, “alternate universe” Gundam shows, […]

Quick Review of God of Manga: Osamu Tezuka

Just finished this book, and while it’s probably more appropriate for Otaku, No Video, I wanted to gush about it here. God of Manga is a book about Osamu Tezuka, a man who basically created both modern manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animation). There was a ton of manga before Tezuka; he established that […]

The Importance of Conferences

I’m at a conference this week, for work. I didn’t particularly want to be here. The content (thus far) looks to be of limited use at work (our customers don’t want a lot of the features being presented), and I can’t do fun stuff at home this week. But I’m very glad I came. Because […]

I work for Amazon. The content on this site is my own and doesn’t necessarily represent Amazon’s position.
