MISCELLANY




My home theater keeps shorting out because of loose speaker wires, so I got me some banana plugs from Monoprice ($10, Radio Shack? Really?). Why did no one tell me about these things? It's just THE MAN keeping me down, hiding the DIY info from me so I can't have the perfect home theater without his help. Plus, they double as secret ninja weapons.



One of my Twitter Twerps, KeithATC, was asking if there was such a thing as a jfro-lock. Here's the best I could do. I hope Glenn would be proud.

My stupidphone broke, and I found out that Verizon wants $150 for a new one without a contract. Forget that, I'm trying Virgin. I'll just keep moving from carrier to carrier until either telephony gets sensible or the phone companies all merge into one all-powerful TPC and stomps us like Godzilla:


I'm GM-ing for the first time 6/10/2011 and I have just one thing to say: BWAAAHAHAHAHA!!!!

CALL ME . . . JFRO-SENSEI



In yet another step on the road to utter nerd-dom, I have accepted the challenge set by my dear Dr S. to try my hand at Game Mastery. Coincidentally, this blog entry appeared at the same time, a sign that I must step up for all womankind. My days of being kept out of the all-guy D & D games in high school will be avenged! Also, as Dr. S pointed out, I have seen approximately 100 samurai movies and have several shelves of samurai manga, so our current game, Iron Dynasty, is kind of made for me.

My rule as Game Master will be firm but fair. Everyone will have to address me as sensei, because that's the name for the GM in Iron Dynasty (how awesome is that!) and puns will be dealt with severely. I promise not to make the players' characters die of embarrassing diseases like that one New Yorker short story. Really, it's all about fun and how anything is possible in role playing. Anything, that is, except for elves hacking computers, that's just silly!
