    I'm alive! Really, I am.

    No zombification (yet) or alien abduction (probably?) has occurred, despite reports and rumors to the contrary.

    I started up school this semester and I'm taking three classes heavy in reading and writing - for those interested, I'm taking Literature of the Short Story, Literature of Horror, and (probably no surprise to any of you who read this blog with any regularity) Creative Writing.

    Bounty Contract.

    September 4, 2011 by Arcadian Rook

    >>He is seated in the living room of the too-quiet house, in it's sole and creaking rocking chair. His face, lit by the crackling fire -the scent of which pleasantly permeates the building- shows lips moving in silent, hateful mutterings. One steady hand holds tight the oaken shaft of his shillelagh, whilst the other- his right hand- carefully polishes the gnarled and knotted staff. As he hears the footsteps which herald your entrance into the room, he tilts his head up and regards you, with eyes dark despite the dancing firelight upon his cheek. His eyes close for a moment to collect his words and thoughts, and when he opens them and speaks his voice is a gravelly whisper>He draws a softly glowing bottle of Nuka Cola Quantum from the in…

    Go Here or look up FETIDUS on iTunes. Download the audio book chapters from either location. It's completely free on both. No strings attached, no surveys, malware, spyware, blah blah, etc. etc. Genre: Audiobook/Audio-Play Urban-Fantasy meets Private Detective Noir.

    Seriously folks, this is friggin' worth it, no I'm not getting anything out of this plug. If you like what you hear, send him a message, dammit! This is Book one in a series, and I REALLY want there to be a second.

    Enjoy and thank you!

    P.S. Kitty went on a three-day safari and has returned! .. She's a wee bit miffed, however, that I'm not letting her right back outside (especially not after only f…

    First, let me apologize for the lack of my usual satirical eccentricity in this post. I'm simply too miffed about this topic to want to couch the matter in my usual amount of humor. Secondly, I apologize for this being a very link-heavy post, I promise not to make an unnecessary habit of it.

    Markus "Notch" Persson, the creator of Minecraft, is currently working with Jerry "Tycho" Holkins, writer of Penny Arcade, to develop a new game called Scrolls for Notch's company, "Mojang".

    Earlier this month, Notch posted that Bethesda has filed a fifteen-page complaint against him regarding the name of Scrolls, which Bethesda feels that , may infringe upon their property and cause some people to confuse Scrolls for their Elder Scrolls series and purchase th…
