A paladin, this guy ain’t. Also: I decided that in Westerns you should show people getting shot, instead of not showing them getting shot. Hey, I’m figuring this out as I go.

Today is threatening to be a ‘bye’ day.

We have contractors over to fix the walls and bathroom after a pinhole leak in the pipes finally manifested itself last year. The racket is, honestly, kind of frustrating. My kids are already in headphones and whatnot and I kind of want my own.

I dunno what I can do about it, too. Except maybe order my kids pizza, by way of apology. It’s hard enough to concentrate normally.

The print version of Bring Me the Head of the Comte de Saint-Germain is making its way to me even as we speak, but Atlas Games reminded me that I got the digital version, and I actually sat down to read it. It’s for the Unknown Armies underground occult RPG, and I am pleased that the game line is being supported, at least a little. So many good ones no longer are.

PS: Pretty much what it says in the title, really. Although admittedly the head is stone, and weighs 600 pounds. But that’s mostly because it’s really, really funny to watch four to six intelligent people try to figure out how to move something that ridiculous.

Tweet of the Day, I Read @SeaLionPress Generally edition.

I would, given that Sea Lion Press is a publisher dedicated to alternate history. The article below is also interesting in its own right; there’s an interesting counterfactual there that’s not normally examined when it comes to the French Revolution. I don’t always agree with Sea Lion’s stuff, but it’s usually worth reading.
