Beasts of Balance

Each turn, the beasts lose a bit of energy. If they lose too much energy, they end up going extinct. You can fight against this by adding in Element Artefacts that correspond to each beast (earth, air, water, fire).


Time Solves All Problems

I like the phrase. A lot, actually. I like it to the point where I could see it on a poster. Or maybe even on a business card. And that’s when the idea hit me: This could be a club. And it could be a Kickstarter project.


JVO + BBQ: Car Con Carne, on Kickstarter

My friend James has a fun, new project called Car Con Carne, which is described as “the world’s only barbecue podcast recorded in a car.” Along with his friend Mike Bratton, the two of them drive to various BBQ restaurants, get takeout, and then proceed to eat (and talk) in the car. They also bring along a guest in the back seat, and sometimes get the restaurant owners to come out for an interview.


Float Documentary: Float Kits Have Arrived!

I was so taken with the concept and the trailer, the moment I heard they were doing a Kickstarter campaign… I signed up to contribute. Though there has been a pretty long (almost a year) delay between when the funding was reached and kit showing up at my doorstep… I really don’t care.

Really can’t wait to see the finished film – been looking forward to it for some time now.

As a Village Voice columnist and radio personality on WPLJ FM, Smith sat down for revealing, personal conversations with Eric Clapton, Andy Warhol, Jim Morrison, Buckminster Fuller, Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia and Hugh Hefner, to name just a few.


Flight Documentary on Kickstarter

They’ve got an ambitious goal: $30,000 with a little under $6,000 pledged at the time of this blog post (with 19 days to go).

I’ll tell you this – I love the idea of Kickstarter, but haven’t really backed a ton of projects to date. Mostly, they’ve been projects started by friends that I wanted to support. But in this case, I wanted to put my money where my mouth is.


Off the Record Collection, By James VanOsdol

My friend and coworker James VanOsdol has just published a book! It’s entitled Off the Record Collection: Riffs, Rants and Writings About Rock. Here’s a blurb: Off the Record Collection compiles Chicago media personality/author James VanOsdol’s writings about rock and roll in its myriad forms, with special attention paid to classic rock, alt rock, and the dynamic Chicago music scene….
