I got another package, from the same Buffalo NY address as the first one. Photos can’t really do this justice, but they’re better than nothing. This package contained:
- a short article clipped from a newspaper called the Herald, dated Sunday 12 May 1895, about some strange goings-on at the Royal Strand Theatre, presumably preparations for the July 1 performance of The King in Yellow;
- a handbill advertising said performance, which is printed on embossed cardstock;
- and a small burlap sack, in which was;
No further explanation as of yet, but I believe there is more coming, and I’ll post about it when (if?) it arrives.
I’m reviving my mostly-dead blog to describe a strange letter I received. It came in multiple envelopes; the sender apparently tried to send it to me once before:
The smaller envelope had been sealed inside the larger one. Both of them were inside a third envelope, address from the same Professional Logistics, but this time with a different mailing address, in Buffalo, New York. The outermost envelope has my mother’s maiden name in parentheses next to mine.
Inside the smaller envelope was a letter and four old pages which appear to be from the fictional play The King in Yellow:
I have no other information. Any theories?
Does anyone have any recommendations for novels, stories, or poems written from the perspective of blind characters? Or for well-written autobiographies of blind people? A friend of mine is looking for stuff to read in preparation for NaNoWriMo.
In a little under two weeks, I need to dress like:
a) A pirate
b) A female rogue at a fancy dress party in a European medieval / Renaissance / high fantasy setting.
I can get costuming from The Garment District, but I’m guessing friends may already have things I can use. Also I really don’t like costuming, and would rather have someone else make suggestions for what I should wear. Anyone want to play dress-up with me?
Whenever I go online, my housemates lose internet access. If my computer is offline, they have no problems. I am running Ubuntu 13.04, and they are both running Windows boxes. I would like to make this not happen, but I have no idea how to do so. Anyone have any thoughts?
Some people have asked me to run Kind Friends together, but I don’t have enough people for a full run. Are you interested? Blurb below; time and date to be determined once I know who’s playing and when y’all’re free.
It was Jack who set everything up back in ’89. He and his sister Annie inherited an old warehouse when their parents kicked it and decided to turn it into their own private bohemia — a place where the two of them and their friends, lovers, and miscellaneous others could live and love without having to worry about the little ways in which life ties you down to the railroad tracks. Everything gets shared in the Building. Money’s never a problem; enough comes in to pay the bills, keep the power on and stock the pantries, and nobody really cares who’s responsible for it coming in. Jack does the repairs; his boyfriend Ben does the cleaning. Art supplies and books for everyone’s use. A roof over your head, unconditional friendship and love. It worked so well for so long.
“Kind Friends Together” by Cynthia Wakefield/Cooper is a drama in two acts on the topics of art, sex, death, and trust. It is a “real world, serious issues” game, and players must be willing to deal with high volume and intensity of emotions and existential crises; they should be ready for anything.
The Melpomenauts (my Iron GM team) could really use a snake plushy for Festival this coming weekend. Anyone have one we can borrow?
I have two tickets to the PTX show at the House of Blues Boston on February 24. I am also committed to writing for the Iron GM Intercon contest that weekend. The writing period ends at 6. The concert starts at 7. I probably could make the show, but I won’t be in any state to enjoy it. Anyone want my ticket? $25 obo

Rubin and I are no longer dating. The breakup was amicable. I would prefer not to discuss this in great detail, but am announcing it to avoid awkward moments.
