If I could afford one, I'd love a smart washing machine actually. #IoT #tech

What Next? #marriageequality #apathy #lgbt #civilrights

I ask a question, to the Civil Rights Movement of now in 2014, to the LGBT community in the United States, to those who fight for civil rights. What next? With the recent legal rulings on gay marriage, one thing that is very on my mind is, when one group…

Poem: Heated Blood #anger #ire #hot #cold #poetry #fate #emotions

Dark and cold and howling wind, My ire hot and anger strong, I walk the streets and long for blood, A lioness whose prey is gone. My skin is cold but blood is hot, The need to rip, the need to hurt, I know I can’t nor would I try, But hurt and anger are…

On Indigenous Cultures as the Saviors of the World

As we all know, our world sucks. Or rather, the issues we face as a global culture and sometimes individually are severe and horrible in many ways. I see much talk about indigenous cultures as where to look to for a solution. Are the beliefs and practices…

So I talked with Esquire when I was in New York to promote the Newcastle scotch ale, and the interviewer asked me about board games.

Here's five games that I love, that I think you will also love, but before you read the article, I want to address two things in it.

1. The spelling is messed up in a lot of places. I mention this because this seems to happen fairly frequently, and it drives me crazy. Someone needs to be editing these online magazine posts for grammar and spelling, because they are replacing print magazines, and no print magazine would ever go to the newsstand with the types of errors I am seeing regularly in these publications.

2. The author asserts that, "Like Chris Hardwick and Patton Oswalt, Wheaton has risen up the celebrity food chain in recent years by tapping into the nerd demo."

I take issue with this framing, because it sounds like I identified a demo, then cynically tapped into it by pandering to that demo. The fact is, I've always been interested in things that are considered nerdy, and rather than "tapping into the nerd demo" as some calculated strategy, I've just been myself, celebrated and shared the things that I love, and since those things happen to be things that self-described nerds love, I've attracted that demographic to my work.

Let me be very, very clear: I reject the notion of a "celebrity food chain" and even if I didn't, I wouldn't care where I am on it. I love to make things, I love to share those things, and I love to geek out about not only the things I've made, but the things that have inspired me to make them.

I don't think the author intended anything malicious with his framing, and I suspect that Esquire's readership does care about things like the "celebrity food chain", but I don't, and I wanted to be clear about that.

Now, with that out of the way, please enjoy.
Shuffle your favorite superheroes, and more ways to pass the time over the holidays.

Honestly, +sarah jo Wilkinson, I'm not certain.  I was too focused on the board games and didn't notice that part.  Doing some looking, looks like a new style of ale from the same brewery.  Here's what I found:  http://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2014/11/newcastle-scotch-ale-makes-us-launch/

An unlikely story of tree-huggers, commies, eggheads, and gold.
