A Poem About Penny Lane

My friend Serendipidy Haven has been on a poetry kick lately. I always enjoy when she writes it because it either gives a peek into what she’s feeling or it’s something funny. Because Seren’s been writing poetry, it made me remember one she wrote a few years ago about the Penny Lane sim. She emailed it to me to cheer me up for some reason, but we never published it.

Baby Got Book

I try not to post “in” jokes on Moonletters, but in this case my friends may be the only ones who understand why I find this video so funny. Note: I am actually a bible school graduate, so when this video came out it had me in stitches.

Dragon Age Inquisition

Lately, I’ve been engrossed in Dragon Age Inquisition which is the third installment of the Dragon Age series. Like Second Life you can find places to explore within this fantasy world of pixels. There’s beautiful landscapes as you go on quests to save the world from demons, bad guys, fantasy creatures and other various monsters emerging from a tear in the fabric of our realm (they call it a “rift”).

It Used To Be Cutting Edge…

In 2013, I went on a road trip in California, and when I passed through Bakersfield, I saw a motel with an interesting sign out front. “Color TV” it boasted. If that was a retro joke it was cute, but if the sign was actually serious? I’d guess it only remained hanging up because the place was run by a 95 year old hermit or something. You see, all motels

Imploding Wombats From Fnordian Link

Last night, creator Fnordian Link of Fnordian Magic & Gadgets dropped by The Killing Moon Pub to teach us how to play Imploding Wombats. This is a card game Fnord gave me to review and test, so I put it in the pub across from the Greedy table. I’ve been a fan of Fnord’s creations since 2007. He makes whimsical things like talking mirrors, robots that recite poetry, and entertaining business tools, such
