Happy early Birthday to you also, Mothman.

Hard to believe Kurt Colbain was just a few months older than us. I guess he will always symbolize my youth to me. Eternally 27

Yes, the 90's version of Jim Morrison.

I preferred Jim (even though he was dead before I was born) though I have come to appreciate Nirvana more lo these many years later than I did when they first came out even though that was high school for me.

I guess I'm the downer here. I can't stand The Doors or Nirvana. I never thought they were all that good at anything they did. But, YMMV.

And happy early birthday! I'll be 54 this year, on October 26th.


Happy early Birthday, Cal.


Thanks!

Music keeps me happy and sane. :-)

One of the mangy foxes visiting my workplace was caught and delivered to a vet!

Morrison was a rock god, the Lizard King who could anything. A pioneer of the post-war dream where everything seemed possible, and youth would lead the way.

Colbain was the broken heart of a forgotten generation, screaming at the hypocrisy suffocating him. The poster child of the forgotten children promised so much and finding so little.

Both facets of their culture and time. Both slain by same.


My hypothesis is that adulthood doesn't start in Western culture until 27. It seems to be a watershed age for a lot of people. First (career)job, marriage, children, moving, death. 18-26 is the tweens for adulthood. Not quite a self-contained entity, not a child.

Yeah, but I still don't like them. I'll turn off the radio rather than search for another station if one of their songs pops up. Another reason I no longer listen to so called "Classic Rock radio".


Different strokes my friend.


True, very true.

Well, unpacking is taking a bit longer than I expected. Pulled a lat muscle along the way.

Yeah, I moved in December and still haven't unpacked everything. Of course, that's all stuff I rarely or never use (old toys from when I was a kid that I have no idea why I still have them, old White Dwarf and KoDT magazines that I don't reread, my brother's NERF guns, things like that). Plus, I'm still debating if I should move into the other bedroom and see about eventually turning my current bedroom into a game room.

[On a whim, I stopped by the store on the way home from work, and found a full set of all 20 books in Time Life's The Emergence Of Man for $2 per book, and in pristine condition. The cheapest I've ever seen the set before is around $80-$100, and in good condition, up to $200. Still, that was $40 I really shouldn't be spending on anything other than bills right now.]

Damn. That is a series that I would love to own.


I am making good progress in selling my material possessions. I had the original Bones Kickstarter still in its box that I just sold. Next up is the Kingmaker AP and the KS Emerald Spire superdungeon with the black cover.

Bell's Theorem: The Quantum Venn Diagram Paradox


Thanks, Sharoth! Now I'm late for work.

And I'll need another look at this again later. Their arguments are too quick to meaningfully penetrate my skull in one pass.

Wow Patrick don't have any room for any of that stuff in the new place or not a lot time now for it? How are things in DC my friend? Everything treating you well down there? When you come back up next time drop me a line okay.

Hey Gruumash!!

Good seeing you.

I have decided I am tired of being shackled to my collection.

Attachment is pain

Anything I really need I can get on PDF. It's a lot easier to carry

Plus I am BROKE AS FNCK!!!

Moving takes a lot of cash.

Another great day

And tomorrow is payday!

Here's hoping my check is fairly decent.

If not, time to put more stuff up for auction!


I'm all Alone!!!

Liberty's Edge

I have decided to try to keep a campaign journal of the current RL pathfinder campaign that I am playing in if anyone is interested in checking it out. So far I’ve covered the events of sessions 1 and 2 and we’re actually up to session 18 – we’ll see how long I’ll keep at it!

In other news, never host a comic book convention.

everything is awesome


Sadly, unlike the song, not everything is awesome right now. The paycheck was not quite as plentiful as I could have hoped. It is time to make some hard choices.

I'm sorry, friend.


You know what? It's a challenge like everything else. I will persevere because I have faith that I will find a way. Likely a second job, but that's nothing new to me. Like I know what to do with a weekend anyway ...
