blog

Yep, as a full time blogger, I can confirm that this is partly true… Except that as a father of three, the routine is slightly more complicated. I also usually take a 2-hour break in the afternoon, and work an extra hour after the kids are asleep. Oh, and I also work 7 days a […]

Though, perhaps, rather amusing to everyone else. In a dark way. *considers doing something more inline with the goals I had when I was seven* Ooh […]

The Pokeymans Project: Pokemon Drawn By A Person Who’s Never Seen Them

pokeymans 1b

You probably already know Noelle Stevenson, whose Broship of the Rings made the interwebz a better place last year. Now she’s drawing Pokemon… but she’s never even seen most of them. So, uh, how does that work? Stevenson explains: “I’m having Pokemon described to me by intoxicated art students while we watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, […]

Dudes: Time to Club Away the Trolls

12.06.19 - Dudes Time to Club Away the Trolls

Isn’t it about time that we stood up and said that trolling just isn’t particularly cool? I’ve never really understood the appeal of pulling others down “just for the fun of it” without really meaning what you’re saying, anonymous or not. I figure it’s a natural evolution of the phone pranking that used to happen […]

12.06.05 - Support your fellow geek2

Dark Matter Fanzine is a wonderful independent fanzine coming out from Melbourne, Australia to which I have a personal connection, and it is a publication that I adore. Last year I put on a play in the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2011 called A Stitch in Time. True to the geek form, the play personified a […]

by Meredith Placko While millions of Americans fought tooth, nail, and pepper spray to get their hands on some mighty deals, this geek girl somehow managed to avoid the annual contact sport known as Black Friday. While sitting in my office, pouring over YouTube videos of people at their very best in Holiday cheer (and […]

The Analog Blogger of Liberia

DailyTalkMonrovia

In a country where most of the population is unable to afford a thirty-cent newspaper and Internet service is something akin to having a pet unicorn, it’s easy to imagine that the news available to the masses is more than a little bit skewed by government control. That’s why Alfred Sirleaf, of the capitol city Monrovia, […]
