Listening to this while I read a technical specification…
Konami, a long time ago, was involved in the publication of some of the worst fiction ever written. This is a reading of one tiny portion of one of these works.
CastleVania II: Simon’s Quest
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic 2009 board game Hansa Teutonica, designed by Andreas Steding. It’s stood up to repeated play among skilled gamers, and provides a deeply interactive experience while minimizing the effect of politics. Ignore the awfully written rules (get someone to teach it to you) and their awful terminology (“merchants” vs “traders” and “supply” vs “stockpile”).
See the full episode, for news and other segments beyond just the review.
As a kid, I found this song because I thought it sounded similar to the closing theme to Vampire Hunter D. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPuu9HNUcN4
While we are drawing fanart of people:
Conrad is a coding badass and a stand-up dude.
Conrad’s Spirit Animal is just early 90s Conrad.
Maker Faire 2013! I took a bunch of photos!
Oh yeah, we went to SPX this year.
It was super last minute. We accidentally the presidential suite. It was kind of awesome.
Hello my sweet cuties!
Do you remember that prose project with Sparkler Monthly Magazine I was telling you about? I’ll be doing the illustrations for the story, which is a supernatural communist spy tale of star-crossed boy’s love.
The story is written by the fantastic Emily Compton, and I just wanted to let you guys know that the first chapter has been released and is available for the public to read here! This is the cover illustration I did for its special debut. If anyone is curious, the second chapter is going to be released on Valentines Day!
I give the story my highest recommendation and I find myself rereading over and over the chapters I’ve been lucky enough to see early. I hope you guys will check it out and enjoy it as much as I have.
(Please do not repost or remove the text! Thank you. ♡)
You heard the (incredibly talented) lady! This book rocks. Emily and Ono are killing it. <3
Long ago, in high school, I found this mp3. I can’t recall where. It’s a surprisingly apt mashup: the two songs fit quite well, and some obvious effort was put into this.
If anyone knows who made this mashup, why they made it, or really anything about it, I’m desperately curious.

She flies through the air on a silver birch branch like the ones from up north, and wears birch leaves woven in her hair. She has a magic wooden spoon in lieu of a wand, and there is a shadow spirit living in it. It is her familiar, and it often takes the form of either a black rabbit or a crow. She likes the color gray quite a lot.
