r/ObscureMedia is one of my very favorite subreddits, and while I was looking at it today (as a tiny puppy we’re fostering slept on my lap), I saw this Star Wars figure commercial that Redditor RidleyScottTowels posted. I commented that I’d done a Star Wars figure commercial when I was a kid, and holy shit […]
It’s finally raining in Los Angeles, the first real and meaningful rain we’ve had this year. Our local news will be wall to wall with breathless coverage of STORMWATCH!!!! or whatever they’re calling it this time, the roads will be even more congested by incompetent drivers than usual, and no matter how much rain falls […]
Today, I’m playing in World of Wootcrap. I’m on team Santa Sedition. Here’s a link to the livestream, which is pretty silly: Also, I did a new shirt.woot shirt with my friend Joel Watson, the Tabletop Owlbears: And, because it’s a magical day, woot is also offering everything I’ve done with them, in a big […]
This week on Tabletop, Alan Tudyk, Jon Heder, and Felicia Day join me for a cooperative game that’s devilishly hard, Forbidden Desert! A couple of notes for you all, before I get back to preparing for this afternoon’s bacchanal, starting with a comment on r/boardgames, with my reply: > You move the tiles according to […]
Yesterday, I went up to our new Geek and Sundry offices, and watched the current cuts of three Tabletop episodes, so I could offer notes and suggestions to our editors as they take hours of raw footage and turn it into the show. I was reminded, again, how much our show is actually made in […]
This is one of those “write it now so I can refer to it later” posts, because this is a FAQ. A Redditor asked: Still excited about the RPG show, any idea when we’ll be hearing any news on that front? I responded: We’re in preproduction right now. I’ve designed the fundamental pillars of the […]
We have officially reached that time of year where it’s cool enough at night for my dogs to activate “DAD WE NEED TO SLEEP UNDER THE COVERS OKAY” mode.
Our gag reel for Tokaido is out: And I visited Jessica Chobot at the new and awesome studios that we now share with Nerdist, to do a silly Best Worst segment for Nerdist news: I give great thumbnail face, you guys.
I’ve been around long enough to recognize malware when I see it, and I still take lots of precautions to ensure that something doesn’t sneak by (I use OpenDNS, Web of Trust, NoScript, and Ghostery, for example) but a few moments ago, I was almost tricked by a malware site, and if it could happen […]
Quarterly is a pretty neat idea: a little box of stuff will be curated by a person you choose, and four times a year (quarterly – get it?) a new box will show up in your mailbox. You can get stuff from awesome people like Bill Nye, Timothy Ferris, and Book Riot. Last week, Quarterly […]
I’m recording an audiobook today and tomorrow, in a small studio up in the valley where I work fairly regularly. Everyone there knows me, and it’s comforting and sort of grounding to go to work in a familiar place, even though I’m working on entirely different books whenever I’m there. Today, I finished the first […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 obviously had to order one of these the day they went on sale, because of reasons.
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 ?
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 […]
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 […]
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)
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 […]
