Sometimes I have some random things on my mind that I want to share with you fine folks here in the blog section, but they’re not interesting enough to make for a full entry.  So here’s a bit of a “potpourri” of things going on with yours truly as we head into the conclusion of Issue 9:


A groundhog has made its home in our backyard.  I was holding our son, looking out the window, when I saw it pop its head onto our porch then skitter across into our yard.  The thing is adorable, but we can’t let it stick around.  We’re looking into humane ways to encourage it to move elsewhere.

I don’t normally play the big, lumbering powerhouse types in fighting games.  I usually prefer the more spritely, acrobatic types.  But in Mortal Kombat X, I have fallen into a groove with Kotal Kahn.  The dude is a beast and I feel like a freaking Emperor with a capital E… that is, until I play against anyone online.  I’m still terrible against other players, acrobat or powerhouse.

The flagship show of the Slaughterhouse Sweethearts, Revenge of the Robot Battle Nuns, will return in a little over one month’s time.  I will be reprising my role as the show’s narrator, Joe Newsroom.  I wrote the script for this show, but the troupe’s founder, Fem Bones, has the final say on all things regarding the storyline.  It’s a collaboration similar to what I have with Garth here at Star Power, yet very different.  Producing a comic is very different than producing a live performance, and it’s a thrilling challenge for me to take on both responsibilities.

Buying gardening equipment for our yard makes me feel hobbit.  It’s inexplicable and it doesn’t matter what I’m getting at the hardware store.  I bought a hose the other day.  A freaking hose.  They didn’t have those in Middle Earth (as far as I know), but the very act of proudly maintaining our little property makes me feel like a proud halfling.  I may start walking around barefoot.

WildStar remains a very enjoyable game to me.  The new costume system pleases me on various absurd levels (my space soldier can wear my space engineer’s cowboy hat!) and the Contracts are a breath of fresh air to their endgame.


That’s all the potpourri for now.  Enjoy the upcoming conclusion to Issue 9, and I’ll see you next week!
