PieCoin

My new cryptocurrency is called PieCoin. It’s only redeemable for pies in the face (and other places); but nevertheless I expect it to do very well, so be ready to get in on the ground floor. Our PieCoin cryptocurrency is in negotiations with CakeInTheFaceCoin and PuddingDownYourKnickersCoin, so stay tuned for details on possible exchange rates.

Staging an Intervention

Next month, I’m going to an Intervention. You should too, and bring your friends! Intervention, now in its fifth year, bills itself as “The Premier Showcase of Online Creativitry: Blogs, Videos, Podcasts, and Makers”. That’s pretty accurate from what I’ve seen, and I’ve been going for the last three years. From a distance, it looks …

Cartoon Ponies and Kink

I enjoy the new My Little Pony cartoon series. It’s pleasant, generally well-written fluff and has even managed to sell me a toy or two, which is obviously its reason to be. My girlfriend and I have even cosplayed “Equestria Girls”, the magically-transformed human version of the Ponies. But since I do have a crowded, …

Girls With Slingshots Cameo

I made a guest appearance in today’s Girls With Slingshots webcomic! That is indeed me, by the way. I’ve met Danielle at Katsucon and Intervention (both awesome cons, BTW) and she’s a lovely, fascinating woman. So I’m glad to score a cameo spot.

Harassment

Whether it be a fan con or a lifestyle event, from this day forward I will do everything in my power to make sure that every convention with which I am involved has an anti-harassment policy in place, well-publicized, and enforced. For decades, I have been under the impression that fans and kinky people were …

Agents of S.H.O.K.O.L.A.D.A.

A Twitter conversation… [friend]: Awesome thing I forgot to mention earlier: I finally have an official dotgov.gov domain registration account 😀 [me]: I’m guessing I can’t bribe you to register “shokolada.gov” for me, though. 😛 [friend]: *giggles* Not really, unless you can come up with some official-y agency or program acronym that matches 😛 [me]: …

Pi(e) Day 2013

Visitors here probably know this already, but “pi” (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) is approximately 3.14, which is close to the way Americans often write March 14th (3/14). So, geeks have been declaring March 14th as Pi Day for the last several years, and celebrating with tasty confection. As …

Steampunk and Pie

When I have some money lying around for a Steam videogame purchase or two, I may need to pick this up and try it. Really, it’s the music that’s selling this one. And pie! Though on the other hand, I am a little sorry the trailer’s through Machinima.com, since thanks to them we may never …
