Remembering the Second Sleep

by Ken Newquist / October 2, 2013

I've had trouble sleeping since college. Initially that took the form of insomnia, but more recently I've fallen into a more disruptive, two-part sleep pattern. When this happens I sleep for four hours, get up for an hour or two, then go back to sleep for another two or three (or, if I'm really unlucky, I stay up the rest of the night).

"It's the the Final Shutdown..."

by Ken Newquist / October 1, 2013

The federal government is shutdown. While I'm sympathetic to the smaller government impulses driving the Republicans behind this particular charge, I think it's the wrong way to go about it.

In some ways I am glad to see things finally come to a head -- Congress hasn't passed a budget since 2009, so it's not like things have been running along smoothly. Congress had almost refined can-kicking to an art form, and I for one would like them to actually, you know, do their job.

Game Day: Out of Darkness

by Ken Newquist / September 8, 2013

Second Darkness is ending. Our first-ever Pathfinder adventure path campaign, began in September 2011 and is concluding about two years later.

We played Pathfinder every two weeks, the exception of the occasional schedule cratering by holidays and summer vacations. We worked our way through the entirety of the first three books in the series, but skipped a good chunk of the fourth book (which takes place in a drow city) and the entire of the fifth (which involves unearthing an elven conspiracy).

The Creature From The Black Lagoon showed up in the Nuketown inbox today. This should be fun... #movies #creaturefeature
