What is with the "What's Hot?" recommendations in my feed the last two days? Creationism. Climate Denialism. GMO Panic. Etc. It's like an unending parade of anti-scientific stupid.

I can't help but think I would enjoy "Ultimate Spider-Man" (tv) more if he was the only teenage superhero on the show. Parker's teenage status is pretty canonical, and the wise-cracking, 4th-wall hijinks are both fun and a good fit for the character, which would contrast best against more adult, straightman types.

Instead, the "let's have a whole cast of teenage-versions of other superheroes" bit is just aggravating. Luke Cage as a teenager? Iron fist as a teenager? Etc. Come on.

As some of you may know, I work on the web version of the Lovecraft eZine, an excellent magazine publishing original fiction. We recently expanded to print, and are looking now to extend that to video: professionally shot and acted short films based on stories from the 'zine.

Most of the cost will be coming out of our own pockets, but we'd appreciate help in bringing this project to life. Horrible, horrible life.

That's where you come in! Because if you don't help, how will you live with yourself? The nightmares! The voices! The suggestive whispers of cosmic horror slipping forth from the shadows to intrude upon your every waking moment! Also: spiders!

Thanks!

Ran into an interesting and unfortunate situation yesterday:

I had backed a cool-sounding Kickstarter project before I realized who the creator was. That is, I knew the creator under a different name a few years ago, when they were engaged in a public campaign of falsehood and defamation against myself and others.

Thing is, I don't avoid backing projects because of interpersonal conflicts or political differences--hurling insults back-and-forth and mutual disdain are, to me, petty reasons not to back an interesting project. The difference here, I think, is that someone deciding to outright burn another person in the court of public opinion[1] is more than just interpersonal hostility, or strenuous difference of political opinion.

It has made me curious how others would choose if they were presented with a similar situation?

( [1] Note: there are never any actual trials in this court, you are always as guilty as whomever presents you as guilty says you are, of whatever they say you are guilty of. Welcome to the internet.)

+Ralph Mazza I actually feel a bit crappy that I even thought about it instead of just backing out, mainly given what they helped do to a friend (fairly certain that friend suffered from undiagnosed PTSD afterwards, based on how their behavior changed).

I find it extremely fascinating that none of you were in the shared circle.  Like, everybody's internet is really different, but...  I guess it makes me miss the old Forge gang.

+Ron Edwards, that is the absolute fucking best oblique reference I've seen in ages.

I have a couple dozen keys from Steam bundles for games I either already own or am not interested in playing. Anyone know how much Steam frowns on trading or giving away keys from the bundles?

+James Yee Quite some time ago they had threatened to close accounts if you did so, but I couldn't find anything in the FAQs about that now, so good to know I don't need to worry.

+Larry Lade True, hadn't considered that. Though I wouldn't feel guilty about trading away the keys for indie games I don't plan to play, because they aren't serving very well as marketing if they remain unused.

I should probably put a list together of what I have.

+James Yee It would be great if you could help boost the signal on this Kickstarter. If you're able to do so, +Mike Davis would be the guy to interview. Thanks!

NP +Raven Daegmorgan just glad you thought of me when it came to Kickstarter.  Means I'm doing something right. ;)

This represents our first hilarious attempt to build some mechs for MOF0 out of the LEGOs we have around the house, using the C6 building system. #mobileframezero

Last year sometime I did a run-down of the KS projects, delay times, fulfillment and so forth I'd experienced, comparing with +James Yee.

I've been going over my backed projects again and figured it was time for an update. Including only projects backed with reward delivery estimates prior to March 2014:

Of 66 projects total, 42 have delivered their rewards. 16 of those delivered on-time or before; only 4 of those delivered before their estimate, an average of 3 months early. 25 of those delivered after the estimate, an average of 7 months late (though 3 were over a year-and-a-half late).

Of the 42 delivered, 8 are partial deliveries--the core rewards have been delivered but the rest is still in development. All but 1 expectedly so; for that 1, delivery is still considered likely.

Of the 24 projects that have failed to deliver by their estimated date, 3 revised their deliveries to post-March 2014 early in their run. Of the remaining 21, 1 has no known delivery date and no-expectation of delivery (18 months late, no updates). 4 of those expect to deliver in May. 10 are software projects and have constantly revised delivery dates.

10 of those are software projects, all reporting to backers with semi-regular updates and revised time-tables (and given software development, I'm not surprised by the missed dates); half of them are still in Alpha development.

4 are print projects and have had unforeseeable/uncontrollable delay problems with their printers.

1 of the worst projects for missed delivery and poor communication has been a tabletop gaming project that added dozens of extra items for each stretch goal achieved, which pretty clearly swamped the writer. Still waiting on it, though the writer has started communicating more regularly.

Hmm.. sounds like you're running about average there +Raven Daegmorgan from every survey I've heard.  Mine isn't much different though I've not broken it down as you have. :)

Story
Tagline
Trying, just...trying. Every day.
Introduction
Born in Minnesota, at the end of the road. You can find me on FB too, though I save that for people I've known for a while and spoken to semi-regularly.

I'm a bit of a jack-of-all-trades in terms of "what I do." I've been a projection tech, a bookstore 'sales associate', a groundskeeper at a graveyard, a lab assistant, a web designer, a produce manager, a computer programmer and technician, a freelance editor, a teacher, a graphic designer and illustrator, a pizza delivery guy, a (published) author, and a radio DJ.

I've done tiny spots of other stuff too, like construction work, being an extra in a movie, and a grip on a commercial.

I'm currently and quite happily a stay-at-home dad to seven kids. Four of them are mine, and I married into three more.

I'm bipolar and OCD.
