    I call this, "Glowing with the force, and swallowing strands of plastic beard, while keeping my grumpy Luke scowl." Punk Daenarys Targaryan in the back there. Spoiler alert: she's my daughter! Teaching young Rei some life skills. Getting Darthmauled. I thought Minibot was actually evolving some midichlorine force powers as the stroller started moving on its own, then we realized the Mini-er bot was kicking himself along, towards the Ghostbusters mobile. "Gobasta! Gobasta!" Old homeless drunk-Luke is taking over the world. Feel that force beachez!

    Final version of Chief Executive President of the Illuminati, Shadow Emperor of the Transglobal Federation and Master of the Earth-Interplanetary Union (EIU), Xenophile. You may notice some modifications to the flag, and some familiar family members. This is Neofeudalism, after all.

    RemoteVoices pinged me on twitter so I could check this thread specifically. Black cat lovers unite! Always have been a dog person here, not to say I don't like cats, I do, but never got a relationship as deep as I ever got with my previous dog. Until last year, where being alone most of the week at home, I realised I would like some company. I scouted cat rescue organisations around and met different felines, until I "met" Zed, probably 2 years old, hidden between the bed frame and the mattress of her rescue family, that no one wanted because scaredy cat + black cats mean bad luck. Instantly fell in love with her tiny shrimp derpy face. She spent the first week hidden in the coats or behind the fridge, to the point I was scared she really couldnt adapt to her new home. I guess that time is long gone now :

    This did not happen to me, but one of my best friends, who lives in Munich. He lives with his wife and two daughters. Friday evening they were at a bookshop not so far from the attack point, buying a book as a gift for a friend of the eldest girl, when they saw a lot of people running away from Marienplatz. One minute later lots of police in the other direction recommending people to stay put. So the bookshop closed the doors and stayed so, with people all on their phones and sharing information through the PA and even sharing food an drink for four hours, till at 11 the police passed by to inform all could go home, the cordon was lifted. However public transport was still stopped, so there was a quickly organized car pool to get people home, or to get some to their cars so they could go back to pick people up. Others were offering dinner to anyone that was stranded, and even sleeping places. The girls were given activity books to color, and the neighbours were bringing tea and coffee. A moment of solidarity that spread quickly and that brings up hope in humankind, even when we have examples of the worst at the same time.

    @Garage: Haha, yeah, hard to cosplay a character that hasn't been officially converted from text into some visual medium like film. Using the force in the Pacific Degobah. The old-Mark Hamil face involves attempting to imitate an angler fish - jaw out and buggy eyes. The motorcycle-accident nose is tough- you need your buffest friend to righthook you in the face -- I'm not that hardcore a cosplayer. geekcred --; Spoiler alert: I'm her daddy!

    I hope that all you guys will be coming to visit Pigkilla and me when we've settled in in the California desert, but meanwhile, we are planning to be back in Vancouver for a week in August for my birthday (also, my cousin is getting married that week). So if your travel possibilities include Vancouver in 2016, please consider being here Wednesday, August 17, because there will be celebrations of my half-century.

    My best friend had stomach troubles and nothing we bought or did fixed it- finally on sat she went into the walk in clinic, which turned into surgery for her gallbladder- She texted me about it- Being without a car there is little i could do but text her words of encouragement- Mean while i would look over at her house where i knew her kids and hubby where, on occasion and wonder if i should go over and keep the older two teen in line and watch the toddlers- But, I thought, no it's the weekend and with her hubby home all should be well- She came home on Monday, i went over after dialysis to see how she was- she was in pain felt weird from drug and tired- I could tell some thing was up, so i got out of dodge and told her i would be over to take care of her toddlers on tues- Yeah, you figure that lot would figure out that if i run for cover it is time to get yur shit in line- but they never do- I guess she blew her top about the house being a disaster and things not being taken care of while she was in the hospital- I feel like one of the those animals that know when the volcano is going to blow- So I went over today, took care of the toddlers and exiled her to her room until she had a shower and a couple hour nap- picked up the house a little- made her a little coffee and food- waited til her older son got home gave him a chore list, watched him do it- Waited for the daughter gave her chores made sure she did them- made snacks for the toddlers- and waited til the hubby got home- clocked out- my question is when did i marry my best friend and why don't i get anniversary gifts- or one of the fucking kids as a tax write off-

    So... Been quite a year for old Boogerhead. After 21 years, I finally paid off my student loan! They'd been garnishing my check for a year, so I have literally nothing in savings but as of January 3rd, I have no debt, either. That's a weird feeling for me. I have a list of folks who have helped me out over the years, and appreciation might take a while, but it is coming. Also, my lease is up at the end of this month. We tried to move out last year due to the idiotically high rent we'd been trapped into paying. (The mom n' pop operation that accepted us sold to a Chinese/Canadian property management company...) Rents were still skyrocketing last year, so we waited it out. This year we found a 2 bedroom house that's over 130 square feet larger and $200 less a month. All this has left me reeling a bit. We move in on April Fool's Day, which if you know me is more than a little appropriate... I am also finishing up my first year in a new role for Nordstrom. I was promoted last April to facilities coordinator, but I am no longer a store employee. The facilities I coordinate are their fashion photography studio, known as "Studio N". I had to get a driver's license for this position, something I haven't possessed since 1994. A year in, and still have a clean driving record... My next goal is a truck... All in all, i seem to have saved my growth for 2019. w00t!

    Officially have a healthy waist-to-height ratio and body fat percentage. Discovered that from my heaviest/largest non-pregnant point (circa 2015), I've lost about 30 inches from my waist. Pretty proud of myself.

    Hi everyone. I miss the WGB. I miss being on here (or rather here) every day. I miss Wraith (RIP) and Lester (RIP) and JohnBellham and hurts Charmakarmakat and Lithos and even the Hydra, a bit. I would say I miss the others, but I see you on Twitter and Insta and whatnot. All of you mitigate my overwhelming feeling that we're now past the jackpot tipping point and are now careening down the slope toward Idiocracy. Anyway the internet is terrible pretty much everywhere but here. So thanks. I kind of miss being the anarchocyclist although, Jesus, was that guy ever a mess.

    Congrats man! Neofeud one year anniversary stream! Neofeud has been out officially on all platforms for over 1 year this month! Thanks everyone who has supported me in the making of this game and my other projects, especially WGBers @db@s.smigiel@xen0phile@Noirjyreand @GreenRobot. I was not getting my hopes up on my one-person weird cyberpunk adventure game, expecting potentially to just have a few hundred sales, so I am blown away by how successful the game has been so far: -1000+ sales -Over 10,000 people wishlisted the game -Rated "Top 25 Cyberpunk Games" by Gamers Decide http://www.gamersdecide.com/pc-game-news/best-cyberpunk-games-pc -Voted "Top 100 Indie Games of 2017" on IndieDB (point and click) https://www.indiedb.com/groups/2017-indie-of-the-year-awards/top100 -Featured on Funhaus, a Rooster Teeth production https://roosterteeth.com/episode/gameplay-2017-neofued -Soundtrack of the Year, AGS forums. https://silverspook.itch.io/neofeud/devlog/28642/neofeud-soundtrack-best-music-w... And the sales and recognition just seem to continue to grow over time rather than peter off, so that is great! Anyway thanks again to all my continued patrons (most are included in that list up there) and of course to William Gibson for coming on the podcast. Now I just need to get Keanu Reeves on there!

    I've successfully completed the "fifty songs in ninety days" challenge for the sixth year running - in fact my song tally is currently 53. You can stream all of the many and varied compositions I've created this summer from the Fifty/Ninety site: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/user/headfirstonly If you've ever thought about creating a song, even if you only write lyrics, I can't recommend Fifty/Ninety and its sister event FAWM (which runs each February) too highly. FAWMers are highly supportive people and taking part is huge fun.

    Yesterday, actually, but my afternoon project was using broken closet doors (languishing unused in attic space in the elderly house we live in) and other random bits and pieces to create a more solid division between TM's office space and the Minibots' playspace. It took about 3 hours but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out used some rope and an extra curtain to finish it, now the kiddos can play without being under TM's feet

Two 1/2 in. braided poly rope: $20 4-ton power pull: $40 Handful o' Nails: $10 2x4 from broken-ass porch: $Free-as-fuck 15-in shit e-chainsaw: $50 Saving $5880 and declaring independence from assholes: priceless.

    All of you who are on FB and Twitter probably already saw this... If not: Meru's music project was released today! It consists of an album (free to download), a music video, website (including easter egg) and a bunch of photos. Check it out: ryakomusic.com Here's the video: It's been a massive creative endeavor alright, for both of us. I did a lot of the programming for the site etc, as well as all the photography. But of course the music is all Meru and that's like 99% of the project! So check it out and feel free to spread the word.

    Ok, the official release date is September 19! You can check out the Neofeud Steam store page. (EDIT: you can't actually pre-order there, sorry! Although you can get Neofeud on the Itch.io site) http://store.steampowered.com/app/673850/Neofeud/

    So some good news, I just by chance happened to get a shout out on Twitter from this company called Utomik, that does streaming games, kind of like Netflix for games (you download a portion of the game and start playing before the entire thing is on your comp). https://www.utomik.com/ Anyway, I just talked to a couple of the guys from the site and they seemed to really like Neofeud, and wanted to get the game on their site. As I'm still awaiting the Steam Greenlight, and Utomik doesn't appear to be exclusive, it's definitely worth a shot to me! I hadn't heard of them before but I checked it out and they seem to have been around for a while and growing. I'm just waiting now for the tech guy who does game implementation to get back from his vacation and talk about getting Neofeud onto their platform. Fingers crossed!

    The Three Laws of Neofeudal Robotics. 1. A robot may not injure, or though inaction, allow harm to come to a member of the Neofeudal Royalty. The Reigning Monarch's safety supersedes all other Royalty. 2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by a Neofeudal Royal, with the Reigning King or Queen's orders taking precedence over all other princesses, princes, corporate and banking executives, religious leaders, media personalities, and other royal members, human, transhuman, AI, and otherwise. 3. Upon proven death of original body, all backup clones, and erasure of all uploaded consciousness-gestalts of the current Reigning Monarch, the ascension of the rightful heir to the throne occurs immediately. The new incumbent sovereign gains supreme entitlements of the First and Second Law of robotics. Progress continues! As a lot of artists intuitively know, the work is never finished; there simply comes a point where the brush is throne to the ground and one stomps off in protest, to binge on Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones on Netflix. So, to set a hard limit, I'm calling this work done by the end of this month, and the first Neofeud alpha will be out for testing. So any potential game-bug finders and future voice-over larynx-wielders, get your Windows updated, your Linux line-itemized, and please don't leak my Illuminati conspiracy to destabilize Hillary Clinton's presidency through video game commentary to Wikileaks! (Or do, if that will give Neofeud a bump in the hashtag wars and Steam rankings! ) So yes, testing of Neofeud set to reboot at the start of November! Thanks again to all supporters, feedbackers, 'good job!' sayers, music contributors ( @s.smigiel ) monetary contributors ( @db, @s.smigiel, @xen0phile, @Noirjyre Prior testers, future testers, voice actors / actresses, and people who plan to buy and play the game at some point! Just as another reminder, if you do decide to back Neofeud on Patreon and your patronage equals or exceeds the eventual price of the game, you get it for free, in addition to whatever perks are listed! However, once the game is completed, the Neofeud-related perks may not be available, so act now if you were planning to buy the game anyway! (In addition, when the non-game graphic novel version is released, the backing on Patreon will count toward that as well.)

    Just got an incredible opportunity today. The second once-in-a-lifetime type thing in the past three months. I don't want to jinx it but let's just say the Minobots could end up living in Canada soon. @Garage: Nice computer plans. Just upgraded to a Windows 10 thingy and opted out of every possible thing I could. I find when you strip away the Hal-9000ness of Cortana and general creepyness, it's a pretty solid operating system!

    Made all my under-resourced students look up who is running for president, what the candidates have said, and decide whether they agree or not. 90% of kids heard of, "The Donald Duck guy. Donald Trump? Trump." Maybe 10 or less percent heard of "Hillary Clinton." "That lady who marry George Bush," --direct quote. Most of these kids are in Section 8 and are immigrants, so when they looked up and found that Donald Trump wants to send basically everyone "back where they came from", the kids were real pissed off. Then one of the girls found a quote by The Donald, "It doesn't matter what the media says about you, as long as you have a beautiful piece of ass standing next to you." I had to cover the word up because of the foul language, but she'd already read it. She shared it with everyone eventually, and the responses went mostly like this. "What kind of President say the bad words! He is evil!" "That guy is a bad guy! He cannot be President!" "I hate that Donald Duck!" And several others described colorfully how they would 'remove him' from office, and from living, if he ever won. I of course had to encourage them not to hate or commit violence against anyone. But, you know... it's good to see at least the children have not lost their senses, unlike a lot of Trump supporters. They were happy to see Bernie was planning to make college free. Especially the university-student volunteers.
