I've been picked to help out with this years MDA fundraiser here at the City. If anyone is interested in donating to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, give me a hand and click below. Thanks.

Help, I've been sent to jail for GOOD.

I'm involved in a conversation on discussion list where the original poster is complaining that there's a circumstance in the system where a specific character type can get a bonus that is "only based on the narrative", not a mechanical/system-level bonus. He argues that this is actually a weakness and players should avoid the character type, because since the bonus isn't mechanical, it makes them weaker than the other types.

Only a narrative bonus. So, I get an in-game bonus, but since it's not reflected in a die roll, it doesn't really matter? Sometimes, I wish the internet had a dope-slap button.

I'm not sure, maybe it's just me... Dec. 27th, 2009 @ 11:03 am
I'm doing a little grocery shopping this morning, early enough that the store radio is still playing a radio station and not some piped in 'shopping mix', when a peppy little pop love song starts up. I'm mostly ignoring this, but suddenly a more-than-vaguely disturbing phrase catches my attention. Now I'm replaying what I can remember of this tune in my mind, and paying attention to the rest of the song and, as far as I can tell, this was bad word choice and not something else disguised as a peppy little pop love song. Still, am I alone in finding "I'd love to give you everything that you deserve" to be a... bothersome turn of phrase?

"If evolution is outlawed, only outlaws will evolve."

This amused me.

Sometimes, you just run across a sentence that you want to share.  Today, I present you with,

"Captain Pigot was a brave and efficient officer, but with a most unfortunate disposition, combining discourtesy to his officers with savage brutality to his crew." 

From Frigates, Sloops & Brigs by James Henderson, a history of the development and use of light warships by the British Navy between 1793 and 1815.  It's the dry sarcasm I can hear dripping off the line that makes it so amusing.

Go here and watch the video, since I'm not having any luck stealing it for my own.  NSFW or anyplace that thinks octopi shouldn't be giving lap dances.
