The Nottingham Canal Coots

There's a coot nest right by my office on the canal. I walk to work every day. So, naturally, I'm taking pictures of the coots on my way to work. [more inside]

The Calm Life

4.26.17 I recently had to do a complete lifestyle change, move from the big city to a small town in the mountains. My website is to launch next week on Wordpress, and will be focused on living a calmer life. TheCalmLife.net will need some guest posts, and I am looking for a few writers who wish to guest post. There is no pay but I encourage your articles to be beneficial and "pretty" with original content and photos. The best part is you can link drop to one good link in your article for posting.

Jerk in Progress - a daily sobriety/accountability podcast

100 days in, I think this is "real" enough to share now -- starting on January 1, I thought I'd reinforce my good intentions with a daily podcast about sobriety, exercise, diet and generally trying to do better. Each daily podcast is at or under 3 minutes, including a 10-second "check-in" at the end. [more inside]

Like ships passing in the night

I wrote an article on my Gamasutra blog about how Pac-Man can move through the ghosts without getting caught. It's an excerpt from my book Bug Voyage, in the current Storybundle, which tells about glitches in classic games while offering a smattering of computer science ideas along the way. It's kind of a change of pace for me, it has little to do with roguelikes, but it does explain how you can crash any Galaga machine without putting money into it. [more inside]

Make Ugly Food

We need to embrace ugly food, whether it's food that starts out ugly or a meal that collects ugly along the way. This blog celebrates ugly food. The food is delicious, but not always photogenic. [more inside]

Needlessly complex

I code up lots of odd and questionably useful computer programs, and I decided to start a blog to document some of my favorites as I put them up on github. In the month that I've been working on the site, I've posted around 14,000 words and five repositories. [more inside]

all GRSSK to me

A fun, frivolous one-trick-pony Tumblr. Inspired by a Mediterranean restaurant in my neighborhood that swaps Δs for As and Σs for Es in their logo, this blog regularly publishes examples of swapped-in geometrically similar letters from various alphabets, regardless of the letters' phonetic similarity. In post descriptions, I also try and swap the original phonemes back in; thus GRΣΣK becomes GRSSK, and (mild) hilarity ensues. Submissions welcome! Shout-out to Bulgaroktonos for blog-naming inspiration.

Dress British Think Yiddish

I have been teaching myself Yiddish, mostly using the sort of brute-force, memorize 1,000 words using smart flashcards techniques offered up by various hacky "hack the language" web gurus. And it's been working surprisingly well. At the end of three months, I could understand between 70 percent and 80 percent of every headline I read in the Yiddish Foreward, and, in general, I am more comfortable with the Yiddish I have learned since I started than I am with the Hebrew I spent 12 years studying.

Werewolf Gimmick

My brother and I are blogging about pro wrestling. He knows a lot about it, I know very damn little. About wrestling or blogging, for that matter. Those who do know about wrestling are seriously welcome to tell us what we're getting wrong.

Money Boss

Ten years ago in this space, I announced my new money blog called Get Rich Slowly. With your support, that blog grew into a business and a career. Now I've launched a new money blog called Money Boss, which covers "advanced personal finance". Money Boss is about achieving early retirement and financial independence, about mastering your money -- and your life. Because it's great to get rich slowly, but I believe you can do better!

Prodgers' Adventures

A blog version of two books of thrilling travel yarns by forgotten Edwardian adventurer Cecil Herbert Prodgers, set in Bolivia, Chile and Peru. I'm working through them in annotated entries of around 1000 words each; the first volume, Adventures in Bolivia, is over halfway through, with our man Cecil in the thick of the jungle and facing danger from pumas, jaguars, piranha and candiru.

The Portland Tarot Forecast

A free weekly reading for the whole city. I got the idea because sometimes I'd noticed the same card or cards showing up in different people's readings in the same few days, and I felt like I was glimpsing larger spiritual currents. I wanted to more fully examine that, and also to combine my writing flair with my divinatory reading skills. Warning: Contains mysticism

True Music Facts Wednesday

On Wednesday, September 4 last year, I sent a friend a piece of music trivia and (jokingly) claimed that it was "just like we do every Wednesday." Then I decided to actually start doing it. Yesterday marked entry 52 - one year of "True Music Facts Wednesday." All 52 entries are posted at the link, and I have previously posted 3 of the stories to the Blue (1, 2, 3). Other favorites include the genesis of the "Amen Break," the story of Vaughn Meader's rise to (and sudden fall from) superstardom, Blues Traveler's hidden-in-plain-sight taunt in "Hook," the story of Jason Everman's stints with two of grunge's biggest bands, the hip hop #1 that was inspired by Spuds MacKenzie, the joke offer that (maybe, almost) reunited John and Paul in 1976, and the accidental, serendipitous creation of "Puff, the Magic Dragon."

Music blog linking new music of all genres

Hi! I just started a blog that will have short posts for upcoming music releases of all styles of music. It'll be the picture for the new album, plus a small blurb and links to the artists websites and official music videos/legal and official downloads. It'll all be nice and neat with NO links to weird mp3 download sites or illegal download hosting or places you have to sign up or any other scammy stuff. All posts will also be tagged by genre so you can click a genre tag and find a bunch (eventually) of recent releases for that genre. It's a great way to discover and explore new music. Ideally I want to be able to do many posts every day in the long run and have it be a good source of new music, not just a random album here and there. I only started it yesterday and have maybe 15 posts at the moment but I intend to work on it for a few hours every day and hope some people here can check it out and maybe bookmark it for later.

Where Is MH370?

After being annoyed with the sheer amount of misinformation being spread by news agencies and social media about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, myself and a journalist based in Kuala Lumpur have been working together on a blog that debunks some of the common myths, factchecks news sources, and answers reader questions. We work on getting as close to the original source as possible and generally try to stay away from "unnamed officials" or "unnamed sources" as much as we can. [more inside]

Circle of Useful Knowledge

My wife came into an odd book by this title, self-published in 1888 and filled with weird recipes for cocktails mixed in 10-gallon quantities, household hints, rules of thumb, home remedies, etc. It uses units of measure and ingredients that are obscure or obsolete today, has some laughably bad medicine, and is a view into a different world in general. I'm blogging a couple of entries from it every day.

I am spending the next 11 months in the rainforest in Cote d'Ivoire studying monkey behavior!
