September recap

I got my Bad Squiddo Freya’s Wrath kickstart minis

Norwegian Wild Cats, Mjolkhare, Beer Time,  My Heroine, Freya.

I also got the Silent Garden published by Undertow Books.

I painted a couple of wizkids pirate minis… because.

I also finally started work on my terrain inspired by John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness. Just in time for the TV series announcement. The green is acetate painted and glued together. I’ve since painted the bottle caps but things haven’t been glued.

Mostly it was just taking care of the little guy. We had to buy a crib because he’s outgrown his bassinet. He’s also in the 3-6 month range for clothes.

The House has taken my peace of mind.

Sick cat was sick again. Gigi ate something she shouldn’t have, followed huge pukefest, visit to the vet,  syringe feeding of water and meat water (Extra yumm). She’s fine, but has a habit of getting places and eating things she shouldn’t (which were hidden for a reason).

October Horror mid-month progress update

Like many of you, I like to watch a bunch of horror movies in October. This is made difficult by my partner not liking horror much (bad with jump scares, AND with sustained tension. She can handle spoilered stuff, though), an infant, and in-laws who don’t like horror. I have to sneak off and watch stuff on my phone, early morning or late at night, or when people are away.

Time out

Not feeling like engaging much, with the main reason being the insanity to the South and bad election results followed by insanity here. Too much time also spent fixing others mistakes, or situations that should never have existed in the first place. All unpaid labour, of course. But I am reading a new Donald Pulker story… so maybe I’ll be back sooner instead of later.

A quick post while I’m working

Just a quick post while I’m working on gaming, painting, blog posts for my French vacation and my trip to Congres Boreal… and being frustrated that renovations are further delayed and I’m going to be stuck in the suburbs until the fall. Ending tomorrow (May 15) afternoon (EST) is the Children of the Fields kickstarter by Crooked Dice games. It’s a good old set of folk horror minis based on the Wicker Man.

The Weird Women of Winterbourne

The Toronto Indie Horror Fest shared an Indiegogo link that caught my eye one day (the Winterbourne series that I’ve previously mentioned). I was curious to find out more about the creators and how they came to be doing a web-series adaptation of Robert W. Chambers, and they were gracious enough to meet with me.  What follows are a few of the questions I asked over an hour’s conversation and their answers. The following may contain some mild spoilers. You can also see a theatre screening (probably the only time) on Thursday April 12. Continue reading

Back to nature

Today’s weather aside, because it was sunny and snowing in between cloudy skies, I’ve been doing a little walking in the park nearby.

Just a quick hello

Because I’ve been living with my in-laws and working for a week and there’s really nothing new to talk about. Except maybe how awesome the lunch room is. My new schedule is 7:30 – 4, except game days when I get back home at midnight (damn 90 minute commute into town and 2 hours back, because 20$ a day is too much for Go Transit).

It was a miserable month, during a miserable year, so I don’t have much to say. Continue reading
