Dear people on Facebook: despite some passing similarities of name & beard, Ned Stark and Ed Stark are two different people.

Is it weird that I want to see a picture of all of you, now?

It's probably weird.

(Also: unless you're okay with your personal image on the internet, don't link a picture or anything - this is the internet, not a truly "private" place, after all, as the spammers have shown...)

Anyway, if you do ever see me, just know that I look nothing like my avatar.

That's okay, though, because I'm pretty sure all of you do. Especially Ccaptain Yyesterday.

This is the most recent photo of me that isn't Photoshopped or blurry.

"When I was small, my mother warned me every day never to open the cellar door. She said that horrible, unspeakable things would happen to me if I ever opened the cellar door. I was frightened, but I still so desperately wanted to know what was behind the cellar door. So one day when my mother was away, I summoned up all my courage and opened the cellar door … and you'll never believe the things I saw! Flowers! Trees! Other children!"

So far, I've managed to grind out all of my dark elf mage's magic skills up to 100 in Skyrim, except for two. Anyone got any tips on maxing out Destruction and Restoration quickly?

My favorite singer-songwriter is currently passed out on my couch clutching a crumpled-up Subway wrapper. I have officially reached "so punk rock it hurts" status.

Got an article published in an indie rock zine... and the editor accidentally left out the concluding paragraph of my article, which makes it just kind of a list of things that happened one time. OK.

I think I saw the woman on the far right!

She's the cool lady that draws this webcomic. Also used to play in my D&D group.

For ouzo, re: my previous post, only replace "Italian" with "Greek."

Sambuca only tastes good if you're 70 years old, Italian, and already drunk.

If you get tired of spamming Detect Life by rank 50 or so, switch to Telekinesis. It works even faster.

Also, you can spam Soul Trap on corpses. It doesn't do anything, but it counts toward leveling up Conjuration.

Good to know...

Black licorice looks and tastes very much like tire patch strips.

No money to spare right now, so Dragon Age: Inquisition will have to wait. Currently back to playing Skyrim.

In other news, found a really stupid exploit in Skyrim: once you can get your hands on the Detect Life spell (starts appearing in stores around 50/100 ranks in Alteration), you can get all the way up to 100 ranks in around 20 minutes simply by standing in a crowded town square and casting Detect Life over and over again. For every two to three times you cast the spell, your Alteration skill goes up by one.

I wonder how long it's going to take for used copies of Dragon Age: Inquisition to fall down into the $20 range.

Dragon Age 2 completed. Again, questioning the odd choice of music during the credits. This time, instead of 30 Seconds To Mars, they got Florence and the Machine.

Also, the game should really be titled Dragon Age Catch 22, not Dragon Age 2. It's like playing through a Joe Abercrombie novel...

I had no idea there was a third, after that fine second one I thought they had quit.

Good news everybody, you can watch the whole thing on YouTube for free...

You live in New York City, and you love Wegman's. I'm sensing that you're a big fan of crowds.

Got a phone call from my uncle in New Mexico last night to thank me for the present I got him for his birthday... in October. I'd gone to see Slaid Cleaves, his favorite singer-songwriter, in concert in Syracuse, and picked him up an autographed CD. Apparently, when he got it, Uncle Mark opened the package, saw that it was a CD he already owned, and threw it in his junk drawer. Last week, he wore out the old copy, and opened the CD case, only then noticing the autograph. A fairly typical Mallon family reaction, really, given that most gifts people get end up being things like jumbo packs of AA batteries, boxes of socks, or, on one memorable occasion, 30 pounds of venison breakfast sausage.

Stay outta my beach community, deadbeat!

My first two posts were in the "Music During Gameplay" thread. At the time, I was just coming off of my Wal-Mart butt rock phase and sliding into liking better music, and... it shows.

After that, I moved on to posting immature rants about why heroes should be dark and angsty in the "Characters Deserving Death" thread.

Then, as now, I seem to have spent an inordinate amount of time talking about music on a gaming forum. I also feel the distinct need to invent a time machine solely for the purpose of going back in time and punching my younger self in the head.

First post was in December of 2006. I'd joined the forums about a year prior in order to read James Jacobs' Age of Worms campaign journal. The messageboards looked something like this when I started reading them.

Had a fun one at the table last night.

My Paladin-king is trying to amass as many troops as possible to defend against an invading army.

Looking at Fey Queen ally.

Thad: What kind of troops can you have here quickly?

Fey Queen: By tomorrow morning? the best I could do would be 100 snow leopards and 500 sprites, any others would travel mundanely and take a few days to get here..

It's difficult to get that many Leopards in one place... and beware, Sprites do not fight 'orderly'. They will be a chaotic fleet.

Thad (looking at rest of group): First World problems....

Take it away, Mr. Kane...

In other news, finally got around to watching all three "Hobbit" films. While not technically *bad* movies, they've been... disappointing. Especially given that the original three "Lord of the Rings" films were to me what the original "Star Wars" trilogy was to a lot of people.

This story did not need a weird interspecies love triangle.

Also, Legolas looks like a Ken doll and has no business being in these movies.

My daughter actually has a Legolas Barbie Doll from when my wife worked at Mattel during the first trilogy.

He is her favorite Man Doll and always gets first choice* of the drama, you should see the intricate relationships these dolls are in!

*Second Choice you ask? Mace Windu, with Jack Sparrow third:-) needless to say our son also loves playing with Barbie Dolls:-)

of course my daughter has for the last few years heavily invested in Monster High Dolls (well i guess technically we as parents did, but they are pretty cool as far as dolls go, certainly better then Bratz)

Obviously you haven't been to Florida. Those were the mosquitoes. :-p

And here I was, thinking that they only had mosquitoes like that in Canada.
