Help me choose...

I'm stuck in the Charlotte airport for another couple of hours. I have my bouzouki with me, and may have found a nice little spot out of the way where I won't disturb folks.

So... What tune should I go learn? I'm lacking for reels, so I'd like to go that direction. Suggestions?

And if you're at all curious about what the abc file that I used to make the pdf (because it is all one big file) looks like with all the text formatting and such, you can take a look here.

I Don't Know Much, But What I Do Is Geeky
Seriously, I really don't know much beyond the "nerds in a comic book shop pretending to be characters similar to those in Middle Earth and taking a game more seriously that most other people would" stereotype. I know there are dice. I know that you CAN dre...

The wife's incoming perception of D&D.
My brother is 7 years older than me and I remember him playing D&D. I liked the sound of it. Elves and swords and adventures, but I was too little. I thought the dice were pretty. I liked the fun shapes. That's my intro to ga...

Less than a month until the O'Flaherty Irish Music Retreat (http://www.oflahertyretreat.org/). Some classes are already full or nearly so, so if you haven't signed up yet, now is certainly the time!

I can't sat it emphatically enough - the four weekends I've spent at this retreat have done more for me musically than anything else I've ever done aside from picking up an instrument in the first place. If you're able to make it out, you'll not regret it. The concerts each night alone are worth the cost of admission, and the opportunity to learn from some of the greats in the genre is amazing!

If you are coming, what are you taking this year? Any advanced classes? Want to meet up and jam?

To answer my own questions: taking bouzouki as my primary class, with advanced mandolin and singing, and hell yes, I'd like to jam with anyone that's able to make it!

Awesome. I've only been running games for the last year or two, and Bob's been loving getting to play for a change.

Been waiting for this since it was announced earlier this year.

With all I've read about the XBox One (each new article or post gets me more pissed off - and I couldn't care less about consoles in general; I'm a PC guy), this amuses me significantly:

http://amultiverse.com/2013/06/07/two-steps-back/
I love my XBox 360. I never get to play it but it represents a sort of hypothetical freedom to me. Someday I hope to enjoy a video game again. The Xbox One, however, looks more like a console of despair. It has been designed mostly to make you frustrated, which is an interesting approach for an ...

I had forgotten how much I enjoy Babylon 5. Fun Sci-Fi and good writing is always a good mix.

I'd remembered the few episodes I'd watched semi-fondly, but dove in head first after finishing J. Michael Straczynski's Rising Stars comic series, and realizing he wrote B5 as well.

Introduction
I perform at renaissance festivals (primarily Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, TX), singing celtic/folk music. Weekdays, I'm an analyst for Research In Motion Limited, and in my spare time, I like to throw my feet and the ground and hope that they hit (Irish dance) and play video games (WoW, EVE Online, Dragon Age, and more).

In more recent news, I just became the father of a beautiful baby girl, miss Eleanor, who is, in the words of Terri Guillemets, "... the tiniest thing I ever decided to put my whole life into."
