“be honest, be kind, be honorable, work hard, and always be awesome”

The volume of mentions I get on Twitter makes it impossible for me to read them all, and I miss most of them. I do my best to read them, because more often than not the people who @ me are funny and interesting, but … math. Last night, I happened to see a mention […]

Coup: An amazing bluffing game from Indie Boards And Cards

Thanks to my fellow gamers respecting, understanding, and supporting my “I’m not here to take pictures and sign autographs, I’m just here to play games” policy at GenCon, I got to play a ton of really great games this year, including probably the best bluffing game I’ve ever played. It’s called Coup, and it comes […]

Congratulations to Tabletop!

Last night, Tabletop won the most meaningful and genuinely prestigious award in the gaming industry, The Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming. I don’t care about awards, and prefer to just let the work speak for itself, but it’s not hyperbole to say that it’s the Stanley Cup of gaming awards, and it is given […]

woob – repurpose (plus a guide to ambient)

I woke up before the sun, and flew in a lawn dart from ORD to IND on a little over five hours of mostly-restful sleep. As I walked through the airport, I heard the muted voices of gate announcements echo off the walls, and it reminded me of the Pink Floyd song On The Run. […]

Chicago comicon wrap-up

I had a truly wonderful time at Wizard Comicon in Chicago this weekend. I met thousands of people who love the things I love, and spent a whole lot of time geeking out about the games we love to play and the universes we love to visit. Here’s some of the really awesome cosplay I […]

Login issues: resolved

14.8.14 1342 EDT: With some help from Mysterious Kevin, we tracked down the source of the commenting sign-in woes, and everything should be working once again. If you’re still having trouble, clear your browser’s cache (or login using porn private mode) and you should be all set. Thanks for your patience, and thank you for […]

commenting sign-in trouble

1421 CDT 13/8/13 We’re aware of the problem, and we’re trying to figure out why Facebook stopped working as a login. I suspect it has something to do with Facebook changing the API to require a photo ID, hair sample, DNA swab, and your deepest fear, notarized. I’m also looking at an alternative solution to […]

return of the hoverhand

No time to explain why this is funny. Just get in the car.

Chicago comicon day one

My first day at Chicago Comicon was damn fun, Dianne. Damn fun. My Q&A went well, I got to meet tons of enthusiastic and awesome people, and I was given the gifts of many, many craft beers. Here’s a couple pictures: I got to sign a bottle of w00tstout! The world needs more Sparks McGee, […]

dear people who stake out airports and other places

I am never going to sign the stack of things you have. I am never going to take pictures with you. Waiting in an airport or some other place waiting for me (or someone who isn’t me but does similar work) is profoundly inappropriate. It makes me very uncomfortable, for reasons I’ve written about before, […]

if you like Joe Hill, Richard Kadrey, or Charlie Huston, you’ll LOVE dead pig collector

My friend Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Freak Angels, Gun Machine) wrote a short story called Dead Pig Collector that is just fantastic. “Dead Pig Collector” introduces readers to Mister Sun, a very proficient businessman whose trade is the murder and spotless removal of human beings. Like any businessman, he knows each transaction is only as good as […]

When someone says they love a thing that you love, don’t challenge them; embrace them, and love that thing together.

Tomorrow, I’m heading out to Chicago for a weekend at the Wizard World Comicon. As I pack my clothes and pick out my nerd shirts, I’ve been thinking about how much I love going to cons, because I love being surrounded by people who love the same things I love, the way I love them, while also being […]

dftba records and me

I just realized that I didn’t tell the Internet that I recently joined forces with Hank and John Green, and have some cool merch at, like Don’t Be A Dick t-shirts and It’s What You Love posters. So now you know, and if you’re of a certain age, you’ll insert the appropriate GI Joe […]

Fraction’s doing an AMA

My friend Matt Fraction is one of the greatest comic writers in the history of comics. He’s also hilarious, and married to one of my favourite people on the planet (who is the wife of Matt Fraction) Matt’s got a book coming out with Chip Zdarsky called SEX CRIMINALS that is just phenomenal, and he’s […]

Discovery Channel Owes Its Viewers An Apology

I love Shark Week, and every year since it started airing on Discovery Channel, I’ve planted myself in front of the television to watch every minute of it. So last night, I tuned in to watch the first entry in this year’s sharkstravaganza: a documentary about one of the coolest megasharks ever, the prehistoric Megalodon. […]

how I made tonight’s barbecued summer squash

I made really yummy squash on the barbecue/smoker tonight. Here’s how: Get whatever summer squash you like. I love zucchini and the yellow squashes that sort of hook at the top and if you try to talk to them they look at you like you’re stupid because squash can’t talk, you idiot. I wash them, then […]


My very favourite Nerdist podcasts are the ones where Chris, Matt, and Jonah just sit around and talk about stuff. Every time I listen to them, I find myself talking back to the recording like I’m there, wanting very much to join into the conversation. Anne is sick with a terrible sinus infection this weekend, […]

a recording of my set from w00tstock 5.0

At this year’s w00tstock, I stepped way out of my comfort zone and did about 30 minutes of story-based standup comedy. It was really, really fun and the audience seemed to like it. Luckily for me, it was recorded by Alpha Geek Radio, so if you want to listen to it, now you can. Please note […]

because it’s the recliner my nephew deserves right now

When my sister found out she was having a boy, she and her husband decided not to tell anyone in the family what name they had chosen. I had to agree with this course of action, because I know how … strongly opinionated … some of the grandparents can be about things like names and […]

next time on tabletop: star wars x-wing

My editors at Geek & Sundry are amazing, and work very hard to turn hours of footage from several cameras into an awesome episode of Tabletop. This is what the timeline looks like for next week’s episode, Star Wars X-Wing. You can click that to embiggen and get a closer look. For those of you […]
