I am often accused of enjoying the role of Devil’s Advocate.

How Did This Happen?

Posted in Article with tags on May 30, 2009 by Radagast

I had a completely different post ready to go for today but I need to revise it a bit — it was a sequel to yesterday’s discussion. Perhaps that one will go for tomorrow or Monday. However, I wanted to write something and since FMS is on my mind, I thought I’d throw this out there because it just popped into my head.

Both my wife and I have been thinking that we’re going to take it easy this time around and only play with those people we want to play with or have standing plans prearranged. Sounds like a plan until I think about how many people that is and come up with eight or nine. Wait a minute?!? Eight or nine? How did that happen? That doesn’t even take into account spontaneous stuff that just sort of occurs at the drop of a hat.

Now, I’m not saying that all of these things will happen — sometimes ships pass in the night and plans get waylaid but these are people I absolutely desire to play with. Oh, well — I guess I’ll have to cut into my beach time (heh-heh).

Turning It On and Off

Posted in Article with tags , , , on May 25, 2009 by Radagast

Sometimes when I write on this blog, I want to simply put up something positive and/or educational for those folks out there who read. I want to foster discussion, get people interested in the scene who have not really participated and create a general atmosphere that everything is a bed of roses. However, I also use this blog as a place to discuss the other side of things — the sometimes less then good feelings that come out of being in the scene. I believe that is educational by itself and certainly a way for me to express myself.

Let’s Get Serious

Posted in Article with tags , , on May 23, 2009 by Radagast

Although the second OTK Night (at Paddles) of the month will be a fun excursion tonight, I’m turning this into a serious Saturday by touching on a subject that probably affects a lot of people in the scene. Sometimes the mass of emotions is turned inward rather than outward and has to be addressed one way or another.

Tips For The Modern Partier

As of this moment, my wife Sandy and my trip to FMS is two weeks away. Let’s see if we can’t inform, amuse and infuriate with some handy and timely advice to those folks who might be going to Florida in June or to another party some time in the future.
