A Day of Good News

Well, Netflix's Qwikster idiocy is over, and as a subscriber since 2002 who was dreading coming up with some way that would punish the company more than me, I'm glad.

Another spot of good news is that Chirine ba Kal (the subject of this earlier blog) has decided to leave his now defunct blog up for folks to probe its now lifeless carcass for years to come.  (Sorry, it's October, you know, I've got to be this way.)  Even better news: he's looking for a permanent home for his Tekumel miniatures and sets pictures to take up their post-blog life.  I continue to wish him the best, and I really appreciate that he is leaving his work up for people to continue to reference when it might be more personally satisfying to blow the whole thing up.  If you read this blog and live in the Twin Cities, it'd be cool to find an opportunity to play with a guy who played with Prof. Barker back in the day and runs the world the way he learned from its creator.

Here in Texas, things are finally cool and starting to feel like fall.  I hope you all had a great Mythopoeic Monday.  Keep an eye out for tomorrow: I have another double day planned for Tomeful Tuesday!

(in the car) Dracula read by Richard E. Grant
(in the house) Blue Oyster Cult.  Does that seem in the Halloween spirit to anyone else?

  1. Glad it's over too - I think the company will be plenty punished by being the butt of jokes for years to come. This spoof video was a good satirical lashing

    Also agree on Blue Oyster Cult, especially that one that's all about Joan Crawford rising from the grave...
