Caeden’s Story

I’ve been meaning to post this little excerpt up for a while now. Clearly, I haven’t. Hope you enjoy! The young boy tottered out of the door to the small house, arms outstretched in front of him. His eyes were a pale, milky white, in stark contrast to his deep ebony skin. His motion had […]

The First War

So there’s been radio silence on here for a while about my new writing project, and I think it’s about time to change that. My writing has been progressing, though it’s going much, much more slowly than I’d originally anticipated. I have first drafts of chapters 5-8 (yes, I started writing chapter 5 first) complete […]

On Bloodmagic

So for several months, I’ve had an idea for a story that I’d like to tell that has been taking shape within my head. At first, I was going to make this story and world the setting for a role-playing game, but as it has matured I’ve decided that it would be very difficult to […]

Internet Advertising (Part 3)

So in parts one and two of my three-part diatribe against Internet advertising, I took a number of common arguments made by people who like advertisments, and deconstructed them. Often times, in debates about this subject, the person supporting advertisements will at some point say “Well, we don’t know any better way to do it, […]

Internet Advertising (Part 2)

In my previous article on advertising, I explained the social contract of the Internet as we know it. That contract, if you need a reminder is: A content creator puts content on the Internet for a content consumer to view. When the contract consumer views the creator’s creation, he implicitly agrees to sell himself to […]

Internet Advertising (Part 1)

Every once in a while, when I feel like getting really angry, I go find an article on the Internet condemning the use of AdBlock. This perspective makes me angry for a lot of reasons, and I’m always really tempted to leave a scathing comment deconstructing the fallacies and assumptions that go into this perspective. […]

My Own Pet Two-Year-Old

I’ve been going through some of the older things that I’ve written and came across this little gem: I realized something the other day: I’m a fake. The person that everyone else in the entire world knows as “me” is a lying, deceitful, two-faced imposter. See, they all think that I’m an adult. Calm, composed, […]

A Discussion of A Discussion on Homosexuality

Recently, prominant blogger and author Rachel Held Evans (RHE) has been hosting a discussion about God and the Gay Christian, a new book written by Matthew Vines which deconstructs common arguments against homosexuality that are often presented in Christian circles. I haven’t read the book, but I have read things that Vines has written about […]

Faithful Evolution

Ok, I’ve done enough fluffy role-playing posts recently. It’s time to talk about something controversial. (Actually, despite the snark this has the potential to be a controversial topic. Please keep the comments nice; also, if you don’t come from a Western Judeo-Christian background, you may be wondering what this post is about and why it’s […]

What Is Role-Playing, and Why Are We Talking About It? (Part 2)

Ok, so in part 1 of this shindig, I blathered for a while about what role-playing is, and at the end I waxed philosophical about how role-playing is actually a form of literature. I didn’t get any posts on that bit saying that I was full of it, so I’m going to assume that you […]
