INSANE CHARITY BIKE RIDE 2017 IS HERE!

Here we go again! It’s time for INSANE CHARITY BIKE RIDE 2017!  With your help and generosity, over the last four years, we’ve raised a lot of money, helping local families get healthy food direct from local farmers! This year my personal goal is to raise $12,500, celebrating five years of this biking goofiness, and […]

Of Dice and Men and Me

Tonight (Friday, May  26), I’m going to see “Of Dice and Men” at Madison’s Bartell Theater again. I’ll also be leading a discussion/talk-back after the performance. Playwright Cameron McNary will be doing likewise, tomorrow. McNary’s play – currently staged in Madison by the Mercury Players Theater – revolves around a few crucial nights in the lives of a group of […]

Poland: “Is this Heaven?” “No – it’s a plate of Pierogis.”

Hard to believe (I keep double-checking my calendar), but just last week, I was in Poland, guest of the wonderful Pyrkon gaming and media convention. Pyrkon is big – really big. 40,000 attendees big.

If I do say so myself, I think they’re lovely. If you supported the charity ride at the $200 level or above (Or […]

Alas, poor Shakespeare. I drew him…

Munhckin Shakespeare is DONE! At least my part. Final tally: about 250 cards, bookmarks, covers, etc. It was, without question, the largest single Munchkin project I’ve ever tackled at one sitting. Well, several sittings, really. Over about a two-month period. The final sitting was the best, though. In London at the time, I wandered around Southwark […]

On the Road Again

Hey, gang – I’m working through my schedule for 2017, and finally updates the Appearances page here at the mothership. There may be some small cons added, here and there. There are definitely some big shows in late 2017 I can’t talk about yet – at least one in Canada that’s not been announced, and a couple […]
