7 Things That Make You Look Older Than You Really Are 

1) Not getting enough sleep

2) Overindulging in alcohol

3) Accidentally referring to your friends by the names of the ancestors they resemble.

4) Ignoring horoscopes because “All the stars move anyway, so who cares.”

5) Enjoying swing music.

6) The section of your wardrobe made from woven reeds and lizard pelts.

7) At every opportunity, you mention “This all used to be underwater” while gesturing at everything.

total dear diary: the random delivers 

For a while there, I was bummed 'cause I had half a memory of a hip hop group that had REALLY noisy production and a nearly un-Google-able name... not that I could remember the name. Was sure I had lost 'em.

But today, they came up while playing my music library on random.

Anyway, this was the effed up noise production I was missing:

TTRPG Troika! thing 

As a creative exercise, every once in awhile I try to create a playable character type for the Troika! RPG (because it's super easy to make a l'il evocative "background" for that game).

I liked one I came up with today and so headed over to Canva to see how it looked with a fancier layout, stolen from an infographic template.

I noticed that my rules-light RPG about desperate gangs of grave robbers ran out of community copies, so I just added some more.

Lemme know if you grab a copy & dig it. (Get it. Dig it. 'Cause of the grave robbing.)

Poking away at an RPG scenario this morning and making myself laugh, which is usually a good sign.

The concept: players are adventurers hired to visit the Moon... but visiting the Moon is super-hard, so the scientists built a fake Moon underground. They're going to lower the manned rocket into this false Moon and hope no one notices the difference.

I think it's important that everyone living a life of crime have a dream. Something to guide them in dark times.

Oh, mine? It's "I'm gonna be the guy who shoots a bullet that hurts Superman."

Unravel my musical taste!

For every Like, I will forget a song I love and will sit quietly dazed, aware that something has been lost, never knowing what.

personal growth/sour grapes 

1. Saw a reference to a series of hardcover books about monsters I remembered seeing as a child, but despaired of ever seeing again 'cause I didn't know the name and NOW I HAD THE NAME!

2. Went to ebay to see copies available for... whoah. $150? For a ratty hardcover?

3. Realized that I have grown as a person and have no need for nostalgia-wrapped tokens of a long distant childhood.

It's 100% personal growth and not $$$.

Morning spent making a little 8 page zine of terrible spells, soon to go up on my itch.

did you know anyone can make a zine? ah, yes but did you know you can EMBED THEM?!? 

Spent the afternoon playing with a toy called the Electric Zine Maker and made an 8 page zine-shaped thing that can be read embedded on an HTML page.

How neat is that?

Got some neat @RAPIDPUNCHES art on the cover, too.

thank you for supporting my patreon where you leave fruit and coins on the big ol' stump just inside the woods where those kids vanished

In my day if we wanted to know what movies you've watched more than five times, we'd live inside your walls, sucking moisture off the beams, and come to recognize the films by whatever we could hear through the nail holes holding up your family photos.
