Some or at least content ... a couple of weeks ago, Countess Anna and I appeared on 'Fighting the World' to talk to the hosts about rapier, melée, and rapier melée in Drachenwald ...

You know what? During winter these masks aren't only protecting everyone's health, they are actually quite comfy and warm to wear 👍

I feel like reading the whole Dr. Bronner's label will give you a superpower

This morning as I cycled through the darkened cemetary at 0515 (as one does), I startled a large fox who broke cover, darted across in front of my bike and vanished into the darkness.

Now I want to cycle that route every morning so we can become friends and have adventures.

The Long Dark ... 

Just playing cat and moose in Mystery Lake, trying to avoid getting my ribs stomped.

tag yourself, which medieval european attempt at drawing an elephant are you

food, pretty good 

Sweet potato gnocchi with rosemary and garlic butter, and some homemade hard, grating cheese. A little roasted romanesco on the side.

TLD whining 

I'm ready for the Halloween event to be over. The game is messing with the default wildlife behaviour and sounds, and although I've sort of managed to adjust to 'spooky music' wolves instead of howling wolves, the stealth bears are annoying. As are the stealth attack moose.

There's a two night live stream of a reading of Beowulf coming up for those interested in such things ...

The Long Dark, ranting at wolves 

I will strip the flesh from your bones with my bare hands! And make you into a coat!

The Long Dark, ranting at wolves 

I am all, 'This fucker tore my shirt until I chased him off with this hatchet. I am going to follow this trail of blood and eat this bastard!'

Sometimes I say that out loud. I hope it doesn't traumatize the cat.

Do, a loop until a while
Ray, a vector made of light
Me, a reference to myself
Faq, a common query list
Foo, a type name in a doc
Bar, a name to go with foo
C, a language taught in schools
And that will loop us back to do.

The other day we shot some footage for a cheesemaking tutorial for an upcoming event, and at one point I mentioned that you didn't need a huge cheese press. I pointed at some empty plastic cream thingies and said you could use those.

A week later, here we are - tarragon in one, sage in the other. Herbs from our garden, by the way ...

Today's Long Dark safety tip is don't fall off a railroad trestle.


Yesterday's pizza was a mixed bag.

It tasted great, but I it was overloaded and got soggy. Also, the onions were too thick and still a little raw. Now I'm debating between pre-cooking the onions a little or running them through the cuise on the fine blade.

I mean, carmelized onions on the pizza ... right?

We've had some new arrivals to the server, so I thought I'd post a re-

I'm a re-enactor/re-creationist, active in the for not quite 40 years now. In that time, I've done a little bit of a lot of things, but what stuck was combat - both heavy armoured and light rapier - and cookery. I eventually went back to school to work on medieval cooks and cookery.

I've been a gamer since before I was a re-enactor. I act and write.

I run computers to earn my daily bread.

The Long Dark game, hunting 

Well, it cost me most of a day, ten bullets, and two broken ribs, but I eventually got that moose.
