Stuff So Cool You’ll Punch a Yeti

I have to tell you something. Ready? Good.

Okay, you know how on the right hand sidebar of this here page there’s a Subscribe button hidden a little ways down that you probably didn’t know about? Well, entering your email address in that box and hitting Subscribe gets you subscribed to every post I leave here. Pretty awesome, right? Well, I got something even awesomer.

On that very same right hand sidebar, right up at the top, there is now a little form you can fill out to “Join the List”. What does this do that the other doesn’t? The List gets Occasional Awesome Updates (OTAs) before anyone else. The People of the List have proven their loyalty by signing up for the List, and they will NOT be fed to crocodiles when the Revolution comes. They’ll be rewarded for being on the List. Things like super secret news, List-only giveaways, and so forth. Don’t wanna fill out that little dealy on the right? Well, then go to this page and fill in the very same information!

NEXT THING!

I had an idea, and I will now share that idea with you. Send me an email using this Contact Form, and include your address with the message. Once I have your address, I will then MAIL YOU SOMETHING IN THE MAIL! (Please note: Sending me an email using this form is different that signing up for the List.)

Got some cool stuff cookin’ these days, and I’ll tell you all about it as soon as I have all the facts and logistics or whatever. (Nettlegoats!) I’ll get the May bikin’ pics up here soon, too. Oh, here. Have a look at a couple sweet pics my trailcam took while you wait for the next fancy action.

Sunsets in April

As a human being with a thirst for adventure, you can’t help but wonder what it’s like for me to ride my bicycle. It keeps you up at night. It tortures you throughout the day. Well, my little baby birds, there’s no reason to claw out your eyes. I’m back with some more sharesies.

There’ll be a bunch more photos of various sunsets, mostly taken from the same spot (a bridge by my house). They’ll blow your mind. Or, at the very least, they will provide something for your eyes to look at, which is no small feat.

Before that, however, I’ll mention that there’s some super sweet Chuggie stuff in the works. Chuggie On A Stick comes to mind. Good stuff, good stuff. Also a new Chuggie story coming soon. Also just an absolute TON of sunset photos, all taken from the same spot. Seriously, by the end of summer you’ll never want to see another sunset again.

March Photo Roundup

There are only a few days left in March, and I doubt I’ll do much riding in the next couple days. As promised, here is a selection of photos from Happy Bicycle Ride Action Time Go.

Here was one night:

Here was a different night:

I may have gotten a teensy bit carried away adjusting the saturation in that last image. On the other hand, maybe that’s exactly how the scene looked. Here’s more from a different night!

And with that, I leave you. I’ve got to go write something for an anthology that you will probably never hear of. It’s underground to the point I have to write with a shovel on my lap. Seriously, I had to call Diggers Hotline before I started. It’s LITERALLY so far underground I had to LITERALLY rent a hotel room in Sssgudge (the capital city of the Lava Men) and LITERALLY get a part time job there to pay for the room (because the Lava Men do not accept human currency) until the story is done.

LITERALLY.

More Bike Ridin’ Photos

These might get annoying for subscribers if I post my stupid bike ride pics every night. Maybe in the future I’ll just take a bunch of pictures and do a weekly bike pic round-up or something. Whatever. Here are a few from tonight. I took a picture from the bridge, went and took a picture by the strawberry field, then went BACK to the bridge and took… YET ANOTHER PICTURE!!!!

F@ Bike, SE Bikes – Mine

So a month or so ago I nabbed myself a F@ Bike (SEBikes), which I will show you now:

Actually, it was a gift from my adoring wife and family. I love my bike. It’s tough and mean and shiny and red. I took my shiny red bike out for ride tonight (our second ride together ever). Just down to the boat landing and back. It’s about a mile total, all along the edge of Lake Nokomis. I hope to do lots of riding, and I’ll try to bring my camera with when I do. Sooner or later I’ll even venture out beyond the boat landing, so hopefully my sweet bike-riding pics will be interesting. Here are tonight’s offerings:

Starting Chuggie #4

It’s dang exciting, folks! Up until now, Chuggie #4 has just been a pile of notes in various places. Magical lands to explore, monsters to face, demons to enslave, and portals to cross. Stuff like that. Tonight I put pen to paper (metaphorically. I was typing.) and set up a Microsoft Word document that isn’t a pile of notes or a character study or a tentative outline. It’s a chapter. The first chapter of the book. I took a screenshot for you. As I return to my writing of darkest fantasy on the monstrous and alien world of Mag Mell, I leave you with… this:
