Lighting a candle instead of cursing the disturbing internet circlejerk of hate–the conclusion

Lighting a candle instead of cursing the disturbing internet circlejerk of hate--the conclusion
Okay, so remember back in February when I said I’d join in Scalzi’s awesome idea and donate $1 per time Theodore Beale got his creepy internet hateboner wank on? THE DEBT HAS COME DUE. I pledged $1 per time, so that will total $154! I chose to give the full amount to RAINN. And done. ...

Just a Little Follow Through

Just a Little Follow Through
Just for the record, on September 5, I said a thing on Twitter: And now it’s September 15, the day the magical royalties elves at Musa Publishing send me the money I’ve earned with my steampunk adventuring over the last month. Easy as that. Do what you say you’ll do. I really wish the royalties ...

Personally, it’s a challenge. Last year I achieved the metric century, which is 100km. This year I’m in ...

Donate to the Red Cross, Make Rachael Liveblog Something Awful

I’ve already donated to the Red Cross to help out those who have been caught by Hurricane Sandy. I’d like you to donate as well. And I have a (dubious) reward for you if you do! I’ve noticed my blog posts tend to get around 100 hits. I’m hoping that means at least 100 people ...
