We have a lot to paint.
Tonight was game night.
Here are some more photos of the playset bits. I don't have it all set up yet, but I'm pleased as punch about it.
Speaking of sparking joy this is about 70% complete, and cost me less than fifty bucks.
Not bad for a 65 year old play set, and it cost way less that my accompanying rocket ship.
We bought this thing a year ago yesterday.
That was the most stressful event in the most stressful year of my life to date.
5 years ago today, Ryan and I assembled issue one of our magazine, in a rare Georgia snowstorm.
Future is no
We got to the episode of Voyager where they fight the holographic aliens, and Tom's holodeck program is such a mishmash of era and styles.
His villain is based on Flash Gordon. The robot is based on The Phantom Empire. Tom's costume is commando cody/the rocketman from the 50s serials.
Anyway, it's funny to see these things being portrayed, and it's amusing to see how they mix eras.
mail call today (zines and stuff) Show more
I checked my mail, and I had 5 more Space Patrol DVDs and two vaguely related pieces of print media.
The first, a signed, small batch, zine style edition of Warren Ellis's novellette "Dead pig collector"
The second, the first issue of Robin Sloan's new currated fiction newsletter.
Both are pretty remarkable experiments in DIY/small batch/independent/direct publishing, and each is exciting in a unique way.
More store photos
Two more pictures of the store from roughly 4 years ago.
It is so weird to think about how thoroughly my life has flipped turned upside down since this moment.
I've been slowly vacating old stuff from Facebook ahead of finally deleting my account there.
Today I found a bunch of pictures of @CaptainUnderpants workin on speakers and magazines in our record store.
We would release between 500 and 1000 issues, printed and hand bound, one copy at a time.
This was 4 years ago.
Here are the toys I bought.
I'm on the last episode of beyond the curtain of space. I'll fall asleep soon.

My character and my favorite party member died tonight with little chance of resurrection.
I have to build a new level 9 character within the next week.
We're playing 5e, and the DM is pretty friendly to creative builds.
What's something fun I could play? (I have only ever played paladin, bard, sorcerer.)
That. Uh. That sure is some snow.
