I need more DnD in my life, so I’m going to run a roll20 campaign to try out the site and see how it works as a tool.
Anyone interested in being a player? Campaign Germ I’m thinking of using is Vikings in Space.

Melodie sent me this because it made her think of Lemmy and Paul. I had to agree.

Thank you to the esteemed Kate Beaton (AKA harkavagrantfeed) for the lovely quote for my graphic novel, By Chance Or Providence! Which, if you haven’t seen me spamming about by now you must live under a rock. (And also which, by the way, you have one week left to pre-order this book before your chance to own it disappears forever like a shadow into the night.)
Like many people before her, such as Boo Radley, I heard Becky Cloonan’s name in hushed tones before I ever saw her. ”Ohh, yeah, Becky,” they’d say. ”She’s good.” Ok, the Boo Radley metaphor is not great. But still! Becky’s reputation precedes her. Everything she has worked on, she has brought the same style, charm, beauty and enthusiasm to, mixed with a very special melancholic darkness.
Becky’s drawings are the kind of thing lush, longing romances dream of, and I was delighted to find them at home there when she came out with her own stories, collected here. The love in the details is evident, the joy and sadness of human relationships found in careful craftsmanship that shows us a look, a home, an embrace. I wish stories like these were all that Becky did, but lucky for the world, she spreads her talents generously. But I will always look forward to more of these.
P.S. It’s true, Kate Beaton is the sweetest, if you haven’t heard.
P.P.S. Thank you again to everyone who has pre-ordered, got in touch with their retailers, or just generally helped spread the word about this book. It means a lot to me, you’ve made my heart so full! <3
P.P.P.S. If for whatever reason you can’t order my book, talk to your local comic shop. When final orders are in I will post a big list of stores where the book will be available! Oh and also we are printing a French Edition, oh damn this is so exciting!!

makes me think of this episode of QI where they talk about what accents pilots had in WWII, the idea of the Oxford Scholar RAF Pilot.
Oh man, it’s way too early in the day to find a link to QI. There goes my productivity
