Nice visuals of the "broadcast" clocks for various public radio shows.

Things Printed  - 
 
I ran a test of Fat Dragon Games' lizardfolk miniatures (they sell them for $5 on DriveThruRPG) on my Form1+. As advertised, they print fine without scaffolding. Detail is quite nice. I happened to have FormLab's Tough resin in my tank, so that's what I used. I printed all five at once, at 50 microns, taking up 20ml (about $3.50) and 4.5 hours.

They look good. Kinda hard to see detail tho until you can get them painted.

The initial trailer for Kubo, backed by a great arrangement of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", makes a strong case for the film. I'm not as crazy about the end result, but it is worth seeing.

A slightly better article than its headline suggests.
You’d think two weeks of constant winning might be a golden opportunity. For this campaign, it's just the opposite.

panem et circenses. Latin, literally "bread and circuses," supposedly coined by Juvenal and describing the cynical formula of the Roman emperors for keeping the masses content with ample food and entertainment.
Panem et circenses - Dictionary.com

A staple of totalitarian systems ever since.

Legitimately not sure if this is brilliant or a sign of the apocalypse. Probably both.
Toast awesome images, the weather, send toast messages, and everything in between to cure your morning blues!

I can imagine people going through a whole loaf of bread just to see what it can do... then not eating all that toast and never using it again.

Probably a good idea.
It appears that the Republican nominee for president won’t be coming to Pueblo after all. While initial information had Donald Trump making a stop here

I've always been…uncomfortable?… with how the group and horde tags work. Philosophically, what they mean for a monster is "this individual monster is a member of a horde/group", and the rules for creating monsters make group members weaker than solitary and make horde members weaker than group members. This approach makes sense, if you assume that tracking each member of a horde/group separately is desirable.

It seems to me, however, in a system that abstracts the way DW can, that this is not desirable. Maybe this is just too much time spent with Anima Prime talking, but it seems a lot more manageable to me if the monster was the group or horde as a whole, a single stat block for the collection, instead of one hit point track for each member. Then the group and horde tags actually change combat, both mechanically and fictionally.

Unfortunately, hacking the system to do this is a bit challenging, not because it is hard to see how to do it, but because you'd need to change a bunch of different stuff to make it work right. (In particular, it wouldn't really sing until playbook moves allowed different character types to gain different advantages/disadvantages interacting with groups/hordes.)

Before I go down the road of actually doing this, has anyone played with this idea before?
