So this weekend was spent in Adelaide, attending ConCentric Games Convention, where we had an absolute ball.

Two days of full-on gaming at the Burnside Community Centre, where we got to meet a whole lot of very friendly gamers, and play a whole lot of great games.














Who me? No, I had nothing to do with those severed heads. I don't even understand severing.

Once I'd stopped laughing, and saluting the good Mr Scalzi, I realized there is a problem with his play.

Casting.

Oh, 99% of the cqst is no problem, but who do you cast as the ..errr... lead who is a) believable, and b) you could get the rest of cast agree to work with?

Sadly, I do not think I'm ever going to see this on stage.

OTOH, I can look forward to seeing it in real life, can't I? So that's something.

Volcanic eruption in Iceland
A new selfie of my wife Ásdis and me in front of the glowing lava and reflections from the meltwater from the glacier.  The twilight and night almost alone in front of this phenomena is out of this world.  Surprisingly there is almost no noise from the eruption, some of corse but not as much as I expected.

It is rare to see an ad that not only promote the company/product, but also manages to make a social statement. And do both in 45 seconds.

Hat-tip to James Nicoll over on LJ for the link.
