Mr. Broken Toe

I guess the title kinda says it all. Yes, I, your esteemed and beloved friend and role model, have broken my toe. It hurts some. I have a new shoe to go with my toe, and it's not very stylish or warm. So yeah, I just figured I would update people on this so they aren't surprised if they see me walking around with a funny shoe on and so that they do not step on my foot.

Yeah, buddy.

The Great eMusic Raid

Cody and I have been talking about signing up for an eMusic account and divvying up the bounty. Lenny also expressed interest, so I thought I might mention it to the Knoll proper.

eMusic, for the uninitiated, is a legitimate, subscription-based music download service, which has mainly independent artists. They offer great
free trial offers through which I initially found them.

Again, there aren't really any major labels on there, but you can find some good stuff nonetheless: the Sword (remember Freya from Guitar Hero II?), various renditions of the Star Wars soundtrack, Matisyahu, Lewis Armstrong, Sevendust, etc.

No, they're not paying me to do this post.
(yet.) I just like 'em. If you haven't used the free trial yet, do check it out. Just make sure to quit before you're out of free downloads, unless you wanna pay for a month.

My current plan is to split a $20 dollar account with Cody, if not Cody and Lenny.  $20 gets you 75 songs, which works out to about 27 cents a track.  Not bad, if you can find enough goodness.

To Reiterate

Attention friends!

If you can read this you are invited to a gathering of sushi! On Sunday, March 4th, I will be yet another year older and would love to have all of you join me in celebration.

Slight change of plans, Mana doesn't open until 5pm. So the new location will be Taro's at 4pm unless someone knows of a sushi restaurant that opens earlier on a Sunday.

Oh, and presents, and sushi!
List of People so far:
Me (Chase)
Maybe Brian
Maybe John

Anyone else?

I really. Really. REALLY want to go to SF for Wonder*Con this year.

Problem is, I need a roommate or lodging will cost me about $500 smackaroos. Anyone down for kicking it in Frisco from March 1st-March 4th? Going to the Con itself is obviously optional, the cost for the hotel is just a little steep. Let me know!

Ghost Rider

Hey, it's out tomorrow, has flames, motorcycles, chains and skulls... and Nick Cage, guess you can't win'em all... but hey! I say we go see Ghost Rider soon!

Maybe on a day we don't do Lenny's Exalted?

The most popular subject on this blog

I have a mega-huge super special awesome four day weekend and I was thinking some of it should be used for Exalted. I do need to get the three people who were left behind together first, and then after that we can get the group back in Nexus. So come on people lets talk about doing this.

Happy Darwin Day!

Well, one day late.
All the same, Charles Darwin's birthday was yesterday, and people are celebrating it in cool ways.  Found this article on Digg.  Something I'll have to check out further when I'm not at work.

Attention friends!

If you can read this you are invited to a gathering of sushi! On Sunday, March 4th, I will be yet another year older and would love to have all of you join me in celebration. I'd love to go to Mana on Alta Arden (across from Target) since they are reasonably priced and I can reserve a room for us if need be. I was planing for sometime in the afternoon in hopes most of you would be available, please let me know!

Oh, and no presents, just sushi!

Actors/Cameraman/Photoshopper(s) to perform/edit an Orwellian "2 Minute Hate."

Lenny, i would love to have you in it for reasons we can discuss ourselves.

Cody, i would love not only to have you in it as an actor, but to insert brief (ten or so) frames of either some of your work that you found particularly disturbing or that of another artist.

Drake, i would love to have you do some things that none of us can do, physically, like break stuff with your bare hands, or bend someone into awful positions, or just be big and menacing with a hammer.

Brian, i would love to have your eye for film, especially parts that i could filter to b/w.

Carolyn (if you read this), i would love to have some comic-panel images that say evocative things like "Bang!" "Krash!" and whatnot, that i can subliminally plant to raise tension.

Everyone i didn't mention, i'd like you to help too, in ways i haven't forseen yet.

Attn: Cody.

that it iI can not take the news seriously but on the nirhg tside its nice to see that DS wifi has such nice range

oh and ten bucks to the person that can prove you can play a hand held and drive

Dragons and Their Blood: A Game

So in light of people wanting to play I propose we play next week on Tuesday (Feb 13th) evening at 8:00. Objections will be dealt with in a violent manner, so I suggest you have no objections. Conflicts will be treated as objections, as will any other words you may come up with that cause the game not to go forward. Carry on.

On teh lamb

After making explosives from tequila and Mole', Jess and I have returned to the states! Alas, I fear we may have missed Exalted by one day... seeing as at 2:30 Mazatlan time we were arguing with Oscar about how we'd get to Sacramento when our flight had been cancled. So after 10 hours of traveling/airport shinanigins/Customs caca... Did we really miss game by only a few hours? I cry.
