Yesterday was our last day at Walt Disney World. A few hours ago, we said goodbye to our hotel and the resort, and I am writing this from our new room at the Megacon hotel. We spent most of yesterday in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I didn’t know what to expect from the park, but I [...]
We went to EPCOT yesterday. I went into space — TWICE — and had beers all over the world. Well, mostly all over the world. I mean, I love you, Canada, but I’m not drinking Labatt’s. And whatever they call “beer” in France is actually “anger and shame in a bottle.” We had so much [...]
So then there was that time I woke up in Disney World, went online while Anne got ready to go to the parks, and saw that a picture my wife took of me and my friend was on the front page of a website I’ve read every day for a decade. I get to see [...]
Tomorrow morning, I’m getting on an airplane with Anne, and we’re flying across the country to Orlando. MegaCon starts a week from yesterday, and we’re going to Florida a few days early to goof off at Disney World before the con gets started. I’m not going to lie to you, Marge: I’m ALL CAPS EXCITED [...]
see you in your nightmares.
Our flight home from Seattle was delayed because they couldn’t find the pilot. I guess this would freak out some people, but I thought it was pretty funny and ordered another beer. Anne and I sat at a table with Felicia and Misha Collins, and shared stories from the convention while we waited to get [...]
Our show at the Alberta Rose Theatre last night was a whole lot of fun for me, and as far as I can tell, the audience enjoyed it as well (even the 28-minute Captain’s Wife’s Lament). John Roderick was amazing as always, and even let me write his setlist (Blue Diamonds, Honest, and Seven) to [...]
As promised, the Very Big Tabletop Announcement is here. Take it away, Felicia! We have wanted to do International Tabletop Day since we premiered a year ago, and we’ve been working on making it happen for almost as long. At tabletopday.com, you can find and join events in your town, or create your own! You [...]
Tomorrow morning, Anne and I are heading up to Portland to vist some family, eat some donuts, play some classic video games, buy some books, drink some beer, and do a show with Paul and Storm at the Alberta Rose Theatre. I got confirmation last night that our friends The Doubleclicks and John Roderick will [...]
…and it’s not what you think. But feel free to speculate, if you like, (I can’t confirm or deny anything) and until tomorrow… Play more games!
In the last 18 hours, I’ve been overwhelmed with supportive messages from friends, people I’ve never met, and total strangers. Thank you. It means a lot to me to be embraced by so many when I feel like I took one on the chin, even though it was, in a lot of ways, delivered by [...]
An all-too familiar coda: My friend, who I saw yesterday, called me this afternoon. I missed the call, so I heard her message on my voicemail. She was so happy and positive. “I just tested for that show! I wanted … Continue reading ...
It was cold and dark and the wind was whipping up, pushing the cold through my body like I was naked in the snow. But I was neither naked, nor in the snow. I was dressed normally and in the Valley, walking from my car to the front gate of CBS Radford for an audition [...]
I was inspired to write this post today because of Shane’s guest blog called Start: One of the loudest voices in my head, the real dick of all the voices, likes to tell me that what I’m making won’t be perfect. It’s an impossible standard to live up to, perfection, and is therefore an effective weapon [...]
On Wednesday, February 27 at 8pm, I will join my friends Paul and Storm for a show in Portland, Oregon. Check out the poster we have for the gig: I KNOW RIGHT. Now I have a VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION: If you’re coming to the show, what would you like to see me perform? I’m working on [...]
My inner ear thinks my house is on a boat, and my brain is trying to simultaneously process the incredible week I had on JoCo Cruise Crazy through the exhaustion I earned with all the fun I had. It’s like I got all my mana back, but my hit points are recharging much more slowly. [...]
INTERNET I AM IN YOU. So, you guys, I’ve decided to let Will Hindmarch and Stepto and Shane Nickerson stay on at the blog forever and ever because they are so great at blogging. I mean, I’m great at it, too, but together I figure we’re like a great rock-and-roll band like what’s that band [...]
Will Hindmarch writes and designs stories and games. You can find some of his stories at venues like Amazon and DriveThruFiction. He blogs at wordstudio.net and teaches at the Shared Worlds creative-writing camp—registration’s still open! A few years ago, I spent a month of blog posts writing about people I admire. On February 11th of that year, I wrote about Wil [...]
This guest post is by Stephen “Stepto” Toulouse. He made a comedy album you can get on Bandcamp (cheapest option), iTunes or Amazon and wrote a book called A Microsoft Life. He blogs at Stepto.com. I was in Vancouver with Rochelle. It’s one of our favorite cities. We were up to visit Remy (the puppy [...]
Shane Nickerson is a guy who does stuff. He writes every day at nickerblog.com. So, I never told you the Vegas story and now we’re out of time. Dammit. You would have liked it. It had laughs and drinks and delicious meals and gambling and foibles. I have no idea what foibles means. Point is, [...]
