it’s good to be busy

What passes for Autumn has finally arrived in Los Angeles. It’s warm and dry during the day, and cool at night. Our animals are even more snuggly than usual. Seamus insists on getting under the covers every morning (just pibble things). After a weekend of doing nothing but watching tv and reading a little bit, […]

so far away from my wasteland

It turns out that my 24 hour trip to New York, followed by a full day of intense creative work, pretty much kicked my ass. I’m so tired, I don’t even have the energy to go to Staples Center to watch my beloved Los Angeles Kings take on our crosstown rivals, the hated Ducks. I […]

Tabletop Season Three Premieres with Tokaido!

It’s finally here! Our third season of Tabletop officially kicks off today, with Tokaido. I love this game so much, and I hope we captured the beauty, balance, and wonderful mix of strategy and guile that goes into each turn. I played with my pal Chris Kluwe, J. August Richards (who some of you may […]

I feel strange, but also good!

I obviously had to order one of these the day they went on sale, because of reasons.

I helped make a thing that’s funny

Newcastle teamed up with Caledonian Brewery in Scotland to make a Scotch Ale, and they hired me to tell you about it. We made a pair of really funny videos together, and this is one of them. I’m super proud of this, because I helped write it, and got to improvise a lot of the … … Continue reading ?

Regarding Anonymous Gaming Trolls, Tabletop, and More

So it turns out that this week is full of stuff that I would like to share with you, Internet. First, I wrote a column for The Washington Post about how anonymous trolls are poisoning the video game community, and what we can do about it. Anonymity, in some cases a key civil liberty, also […]

welcome to my life, tattoo

I’ve wanted tattoos for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until this year that I finally felt like I could make good decisions about what I’d permanently put on my body. At first, I thought maybe I was too old, but when I asked my friends who have lots of tattoos what […]

Skeletor’s best insults

I don’t miss working for a corporate nightmare, but I really miss Skeletor reading angry tweets. If you love Skeletor’s angry face of anger as much as I do, you’ll probably enjoy this compilation of him insulting everyone he can in Eternia. (via io9)

do you game more in person, or online?

I’m writing a column for the Washington Post, and I could use your feedback, if you have a moment. I would like to know (unscientifically, of course), if you play games more online, more in person, or about the same. If you have a moment, please answer this survey thingy I set up: Create your […]

panorama ephemera mashupa

I made a thing, which I believe is best experienced as ambient background noise, projected onto a bare brick wall. This is not something that you sit down and watch, the way you’d watch a movie or a TV show. This work was created by combining audio and visual works obtained from the Internet Archive, […]

Halloween stuff and Tabletop stuff

Happy Thursday! To begin: I did a Not The Flog that was released this morning. In it, I talk about the season three premiere date for Tabletop, offend nearly everyone for one reason or another, and bounce around on my couch while I wear a fancy Captain Kirk tunic. Oh, I also talk about some […]

the audacity of derivative works

This weekend, my friends hosted a 1920s occult party. There were tarot readings, Ouija boards, and a seance. Everyone was encouraged to attend in appropriate attire, and we sipped absinthe while movies like The Golem and Fantomas were projected on the walls. Anne and I got our clothes from Unique Vintage and Clockwork Couture. While […]

Tabletop season 3 – the complete list of games and players

Last night, we wrapped production on the third season of Tabletop. It was bittersweet for me, as always, because I’m so wiped out and teetering on exhaustion, the idea of sleeping until I don’t need to sleep is very appealing … but I’m also sad, because I love the crew so much, and they are […]

Peak Zombie

This is my intro for Dead of Winter. I thought it may spark an interesting discussion about what I call Peak Zombie: I think I was a freshman or sophomore in high school the first time I saw Dawn of the Dead. It hit me the way certain things can only hit a child’s fragile, […]

that time seth green, clare grant and karen gillan played a game with me on tabletop

Yesterday was one of my favorite days in the history of Tabletop production, and this had a lot to do with it: Today is our penultimate day of production on season three. In the morning, we’re playing Kingdom Builder, and it’s Dead of Winter in the afternoon.

it’s the eighth day of production

Yesterday was another great day of production at Tabletop. I had an insanely good time playing Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre with Emily Gordon, Jonah Ray, and Veronica Belmont. We fully embraced the outrageousness of the concept, brought our ridiculous wizards to life, and got in touch with our […]

the game, as they say, was the thing

Yesterday was a fantastic day at work on Tabletop. In the morning, I played a really fun geek trivia game called Geek Out, with Anne, and our friends Bonnie Burton and Clare Kramer. Normally, I’m not crazy about party or trivia games, but Geek Out is so wonderful and fun, it’s in regular rotation at […]

Tabletop: games and guests

Today is the end of our first week of production on Tabletop’s third season. I’ll probably sleep for a thousand hours tonight, have my version of the weekend, and start the second half of production on Thursday. I’m so very, very tired, and it’s entirely worth it. I thought I’d round up all the games […]

Tabletop Season Three: Days Zero Through Two

Today is our third day of production on season three of Tabletop, so I thought I’d share some pictures from behind the scenes so far. Here’s our hardworking production intern, Melissa, writing some of the 7000+ names of the backers who chose the “make Melissa and Kevin write my name on the set” perk. On […]
