The only ray of hope that I see in the whole Transgender Bathroom Boogieman! crap floating around our nation these days is that the part of our nation that's engaging in this now once fought against black people being free, then fought against women having a vote, then fought against black people being treated equally, then fought against women being treated equally, then fought against gays being treated equally and now this is their latest fight.

Although I don't think we've really "won" all those fights yet, they've surely lost, and they'll surely lose this one too.

And they will continue to rail against "progressives" and how we ruin things.

Because treating people fairly = ruining things.

Les Claypool and Sean Lennon got together and this is the impressive result. Sounds like a mix of 60's acid-influenced pop ("yellow matter custard" ring a bell?) and Ghost. Really good.

If you like hard rock/proto-metal/semi-prog rock, you really need to listen to this album. It entered heavy rotation right after I bought it and it's remained in heavy rotation. Pick it up and give it a spin!

Awesome album. I'm a longtime Uriah Heep fan, and they're still rockin' hard.

A Great Big Giant Map of European Tribes!
This map is just beautiful! (The link has the super-sized, legible version) I think we as gamers can learn that our "barbarian" regions really need to have just tons 'o tribes within general cultural areas. Great map!

Very cool!
A full dictionary of the extinct language of ancient Mesopotamia has been completed after 90 years of work.

So, as an Amazon Prime member, I can stream all of Beethoven's symphonies. Cool Beans as we used to say. Time to listen to the ones I'm not familiar with and get some lay-out done!

Science!
On Nov. 11, 1954, Syuiti Mori turned out the lights on a small group of fruit flies. More than 60 years later, the descendants of those flies have adapted to life without light. These flies -- a variety known as 'Dark-fly' -- outcompete their light-loving cousins when they live together in constant darkness, according to research reported in G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics. Re-playing the evolution of Dark-fly identified the genomic regions that contr...

I really wish more rpg Kickstarters weren't snafus. One day I'm sure I'll probably do one, and I'd rather launch into a culture of success and enthusiasm rather than one of failure and suspicion.

I have backed many kickstarters as well, and one thing I can say is, get as much of your work done beforehand as you possibly can.  Those that come to the table prepared and are nearly ready to publish tend to succeed and have happy backers.  Those that come with grand ideas and nothing done and use the funds to support them while they try and work tend to realize that they have underestimated everything and wind up 3 years behind schedule and the focus of unhappy backers and miserable themselves.

Also, however you perform on your first, is pretty much what you will be judged on should you try again.  There are people I will never back again and those I have complete confidence in.  Not everyone is cut out to do this.

That said, I enjoy your work and wish you much success should you end up doing it. :)

Only one hour left, folks!
 
Our Nest of Spies is planning to escape in two hours, and you just know these suave superspies will pull off their audacious plan. This highly classified collection of spy and espionage RPGs includes Demon: The Descent (Onyx Path): Classified and its mission Operation Rogue Lion (Expeditious Retreat); Spione by Sorcerer designer Ron Edwards (Adept Press); Spycraft 2.0 and its supplements World On Fire and The Big Score (Crafty Games); and two different Old-School espionage RPGs from DwD Studios, Covert Ops (along with five short assignments) and White Lies. It's a retail value of more than US$127, but you can make off with the evidence for less than $21. Move fast, agent -- the Nest of Spies blows open the compound doors and heads for the speedboat in two hours.

Damn you G+!
Because of G+ I find myself looking at my blog and realizing that I haven't posted since the beginning of the month. Obviously I need to make a concerted effort to correct the problem. Let's start with another tome in the Tome of Tomes series... The Dowager...
