Song recommendation: “The Outfield” by The Night Game

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 12:16:23 +0000

To be clear, this isn’t a new song by The Outfield, but a song by The Night Game called “The Outfield” which, in my opinion — and possibly not by accident — channels The Outfield. A bona-fide mood-boosting earworm. (h/t Kyle.)

The Lady and the Shark

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 12:08:52 +0000

I bookmarked this blog post from horror author Joe Hill a few years ago, and I come back to re-read it every few months. The non-fiction premise: is there a connection between a famous unsolved New England murder and the filming of JAWS? The press dubbed her the Lady of the Dunes and at the … Continue reading The Lady and the Shark

Kirby Krackle is headed to Australia this month

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 14:23:27 +0000

It’s true! A week from today I and my bandmates will be headed to Australia as guests of the Supanova comic-con and gaming convention. Assuming we are not immediately swallowed whole by saltwater crocodiles the moment we deplane, we’ll be playing multiple shows during our stay, in both Sydney and Perth. It’ll be my first … Continue reading Kirby Krackle is headed to Australia this month

Ray Harryhausen’s “Little Red Riding Hood”

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 12:00:28 +0000

Posted to BoingBoing a few weeks back, I finally took the time to watch this early work from acclaimed stop-motion pioneer Ray Harryhausen. Created in 1949, long before his better-known work on movies like Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans. There are a handful of outstanding moments. The way the grandmother leaps … Continue reading Ray Harryhausen’s “Little Red Riding Hood”

Making A Living As A Professional Dungeon Master

Tue, 30 May 2017 12:33:52 +0000

I love everything about this: One night, after smoking a joint, [Toronto-based dungeon master John Dempsey] resolved to quit those day jobs and focus on the wild idea of playing Dungeons & Dragons full-time. He’d already spent hours building elaborate, three-dimensional dungeon sets; what if it wasn’t purely for leisure? “For a month and a … Continue reading Making A Living As A Professional Dungeon Master

Introducing JSON Feed

Mon, 29 May 2017 12:00:30 +0000

A native JavaScript alternative to RSS and Atom: We — Manton Reece and Brent Simmons — have noticed that JSON has become the developers’ choice for APIs, and that developers will often go out of their way to avoid XML. JSON is simpler to read and write, and it’s less prone to bugs. So we … Continue reading Introducing JSON Feed

Please enjoy this awkward 1984 video of Yes lip-syncing to “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”

Tue, 16 May 2017 09:16:47 +0000

It occurs to me that by the time 90125 was released in 1983, the founding members of Yes were pushing 40 and now had to navigate this new thing called MTV. Jon Anderson’s vocals sound so confident throughout Yes’ recorded catalog, so it’s strange to see him here not knowing what to do with his … Continue reading Please enjoy this awkward 1984 video of Yes lip-syncing to “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”
