In the News

I refuse to believe that people like this exist. It's just someone doing a parody. Especially what they have to say about the British.

On the other hand, I'm perfectly prepared to believe that people make up new people when they're on the internets, and then kill real people because of those imaginary people.

Police using provocateurs: not really news to people who know what the police are like. Getting some of their own number to throw rocks from a peaceful protest just so the riot cops can use their big shields and sticks and the like. What's news is that these provocateurs were caught on video.

I picked up a copy of Changeling: The Lost and am really grooving on it. I'm also somewhat bummed that I've done little but write for There's Only Music So That There's New Ringtones on my holiday so far. Though I have been working at 150% rate, getting through six days' work in just four. Which is good, because I have The Fear that this might be a bit of a bugger to get done for deadline.

Stood outside smoking my pipe after lunch, I had a chance to observe people who wanted to go to the Writer's Museum but couldn't because of the one-day strike. One pair, who looked decidedly American-tourist in their apparel (and sounded it in their volume), happened to notice me enjoying the taste of good tobacco. They then gave me a look — no, a glare — that communicated entirely that though I was stood outside my own flat, in my own building, behind a locked heavy wooden door and ten feet above them, the closure of the Writer's Museum was entirely and utterly my fault. Not anyone else standing around. Not the drunks guzzling Tennants in front of the Judge. Me. Which is just bloody typical of a certain tourist mindset, really.

Oh, and I know I harp on about it a lot but have some links:

Æternal Legends Designer's Statement.

Æternal Legends goes on sale tomorrow through Lulu, RPGNow and DrivethruRPG.

I'm on vacation next week.

And by 'vacation,' I mean, 'a vacation from the one job so I can work on three others.'

So, I hear you.

Thanks for putting in time, by the by.

I knew I was going to do this for my holiday from the start. Thanks to other projects, I have to. I did it for my last holiday, too. One day I'm going to take some time off all kinds of projects and actually go away somewhere for a week.

Until then, it's all good.

Dang. I mean, I'm all for hating British people* but the BFB link was just f-ing nuts! I really do wonder if it's all just a big joke even though the links on there make it out to be real...

*Just kidding! Love ya, Stew! :P

strange things all around. can't believe that page is real. sad thing is that there are people actually holding those opinions... (over here they'd be sued for discrimination though)

we also had policemen playing rioters at the recent G8 meeting. leaves me really worried... I'm already scared at student demonstrations when police shows up in full combat gear...

It's a gotcha - a spoof. I take it you've heard on the Landover Baptists? Well the Baptists For Brownback are the same bunch. The proof is there if you look hard enough.
