I like the site redesign for sure. More elegant than it has been in the past!
So here it is, Tuesday, and you've come to the D&D website to maybe see if there's a new Player's Handbook preview... and, holy beholders! You're looking at an entirely different website. This is an exciting year for Dungeons & Dragons. It is the 40th anniversary of the brand, a new edition of ...

Really happy to hear this track returning; it was one of my favorites from the Minor Deities demo tape. I usually think of someone failing at fighting off a demonic possession when I hear the lyrics. Thanks for this!

Really enjoying this thought provoking reports. The hysteria that gripped the USA during the 80s regarding controlled substance use's effects on unborn children, to say nothing of the heart breaking images, are a reason for the escalation of the so called War on Drugs, which was/is/will be skewed towards people of color and a pipeline to incarceration. Remember, the USA has a higher percent of it's citizens incarcerated than ANY OTHER nation in the world. The majority of them are of color and doing time for drug crimes.

I'd invoke Irony here, but this bit of the USA's history and present is just too depressing to try and find cynical humor. I AM glad that the actual, scientifically arrived at, truth is being reported though.
This Retro Report video lays out how limited scientific studies in the 1980s led to predictions that a generation of children would be damaged for life. Those predictions turned out to be wrong.

I think Bob feelings very closely mirror my own. Thanks to Bob for writing this!

I spent a really long time reading this in the middle of a work day, and I'm glad I did. He hits all the right points.

I'm not sure how I feel about Bob's thesis, which is that people in the public eye/people with a fanbase have an obligation to act better than the private citizen. It sounds reasonable enough and I can't automatically think of anything to refute it, but I'll have to turn that around in my head some more.

Thanks for sharing, Ken!

This is a cute, low key record shop. It doesn't see the traffic of some other spots and their selection is super good. Great $1 bins as well!

The old standard. This place is super classy in that rustic unassuming way. Tons of dark corners for secret conversations. I love the candles on the tables after dark.

There are so many forgotten treasures here it's not even funny. Apparently the entire basement is full of unsorted records as well... like you literally have to dig through mountainous stacks of wax, old school. Dive in and you're sure to find something!
