I don't know which possibility is more frightening: Professor Hulkey Santa or Flex Monktallo Santa.


Just installed a new video card to go along with the new HDD. I'm a virtual computer wiz today! Get it? Virtual..computer? I kill me.

Styx have never crossed my radar at all - again, they're one of those bands who have a pretty low presence in these parts. Will have to check them out...

Listening to 'Pieces of Eight' now, on Cal's recommendation - it has a definite US '70s prog feel it to it so far, i.e. very strong Yes influence (the vocalist sounds quite a bit like Jon Anderson, though his lyrics actually make some sort of sense), but cleaner and a bit more accessible (also hear a less flamboyantly psychedelic Todd Rundgren in places / less heavy Rush / bit of Procul Harem / bit of Jethro Tull ... maybe).

Yep, lotta Yes in there.

The one prior to this, "Grand Illusion" is pretty much along the same lines. The two before that, "Crystal Ball" and "Equinox" are fairly pop oriented, while the 4 preceding those aimed for more a prog feel, I think.

Someone get Monkey Santa some eyeglasses and a couple of medical degrees.

I think we should all be wary of Santa Monkey. He's evolving, becoming more intelligent, and possibly more dangerous. Soon his simian visage will grace the walls of buildings in every city of the world. I suspect a capuchin coup is in order.

OF COURSE!

Could a capuchin coup count as counting coup?

I'm still just STARTING my first cup of coffee for the day, so I'm still a little bleary eyed.

But I first read this as CAPPUCCINO coup, and I was all-in!
(Sweet, sweet caffeine for everyone!)

Now,... yeah I'm back to being slightly concerned about the imminent rise of our (hopefully benevolent) simian overlords,...

So I was at a BBQ place here in town for lunch and was waiting for my order number to be called. This wasn't my order, but when the guy called out "Order 66!" I immediately thought of "Revenge of the Sith".

If I just watched my coffee mug sink into the top of my desk and vanish, I'd start drinking morning bourbon.

Also: Rose, there was room on that door stroopwafel for two!

Start drinking bourbon? What do you think’s in the coffee cup?

So today's one shot for BuckhannoCon is in the books. It wasn't the greatest thing in terms of having the sound system pretty much block out me and the player communicating...but it did allow me to have THREE different attempts at running basically the same game over. With very different results. So that was good.

Right now am very tired but glad I got run some games.

Mrra T'loq, the first princess of the Crossriver Marshes. Yeah, another princess...

Frog princess! Awesome.

My first idea was a princess (or a prince) that was reincarnated as a grippli. But I already done prince(ss) that become something else, so I went with something else that became princess...

Well, That IS new. ;)

Like the feats too. I think they sound good.


What a meh day. We start our gaming activities back up next Saturday. I've had 2 months to work on new stuff but wanted a break from the whole thing for a while. Not I have to write one, possibly two adventures for next weekend depending on which members of the group can make it.

Cal, at what point will you get your own puppet servitor called Klein(e) Calvin?


Man, some of these essays aren't even funny-bad.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

Soon, very soon. Right now he keeps blathering on about a kid with a long nose who wanted to be a "real boy".

Do you want Ultrons? Because this is how you get Ultrons...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Whattya mean? Ultrons are great!

Except for,... Until, you know,...

That whole 'the beings that created me to serve them are actually the cause of the planets demise. Therefore to save the planet I must destroy my creator. With extreme prejudice.' thing.

Other than THAT. Yep. Awesome.
;P

Your ideas are intriguing to me, Ultron, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

I built an Ultron, but it didn't work very well. I must have forgotten to include the batteries or something.

I don't see what all the fuss is about, really.

Could be worse. Could've built an Ultros.

Were they at least "great words"?

Some years ago I heard a tale about a midshipman at the Naval Academy who made an error on a book report. Writing of Don Quixote's sidekick Sancho Panza, the midshipman referred to his "burrow". The report came back with this comment from his professor: "'Burro' is a four-legged beast of burden. 'Burrow' is a hole in the ground. As a future Naval Officer, you are expected to know the difference." :-)


Great words like these?

I love that website. Also, check out "Grandiloquent Word of the Day". I get a new one every evening in my Facebook feed.
