An interview with the great folks at Plus Ten To Awesome just went up on their podcast. Really, though, it was more of a free form long discussion, wherein we talked about everything from "The Path of Solomon Kane" to Mind's Eye and back again.

If the link is no longer on the front page by the time you see this, go ahead and click on "Podcasts" and look for Episode Two.

A Farewell And A Thank You [Sep. 15th, 2009|09:39 pm]

The last message in my myspace inbox is from Matt Lowry, aka Matt Riot.

Matt was one of my favorites among the younger wrestlers. He was enthusiastic, eager, and infectious with his mood and attitude. He was selfless and kind, and someone who always brightened the locker room.

Today at 3:23 PM, Matt passed due to an aneurysm.

You will be missed, my friend. Thank you for everything you gave to the fans and your fellow wrestlers. Thank you for always listening, for always caring about your opponent, and for always being willing to do whatever needed to be done to make the show go. That's about all I can say at the moment.

Fly free, fly high, fly well. When we meet again, Matt, I want to know that you have soared.

An Ending [Jun. 1st, 2009|10:58 am]

Nearly a third of my life. That's how long I've been a professional wrestler.

I've had a lot of highlights and lowlights on the path. I honestly can't imagine me *not* being a wrestler. Sadly, now I have to do just that.

June 13th will be my final match.

I'm not happy about this. I'm not walking away because it was my choice. Instead, a non-wrestling related injury (which was already surgically repaired once) is taking this decision out of my hands. I'll be having two more procedures performed on my foot, and when those are completed, I'll no longer be able to perform as a professional wrestler - in fact, I'll be limited pretty much to walking from that point forward. If I elect not to have the procedures done, the bones of my ankle will basically collapse upon themselves, and that will require even more surgery and greater limitations afterwards.

I hate this. I'm incredibly angry about the entire situation, and I'd like to apologize in advance if I seem ill-tempered, short fused or frustrated. I'm trying to watch out for it, but it still sneaks up on me here and there.

That said, all of you who have ever said you want to see one of my shows? This is it. June 13th.

Take a listen here: http://rpgcountdown.com/2009-05-20 , and if you haven't already, buy a copy of Wolfsheim in order to help me zoom up to #1!

Secret Project W has made it to the light of day!

For White Wolf's Scion game line comes a new Storyteller Adventure Series item - Wolfsheim, as written by yours truly and Drew Backer.

http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=61547

Only $6.99, and it's a good introductory adventure into the Scion world that's receiving very positive reviews. Go! Now! Take a look and buy! Leave feedback on the White Wolf forums (or to me directly) so that I can do this more often!

Reminder - Tonight at 8:00PM [Apr. 11th, 2009|04:21 pm]

My Birthday celebration at the Casa de Backer. Drop me or he a line if you need directions and stuff. Whilst I'm at it, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that supercannuck is celebrating his birthday today as well, up in the wild north.

Presence is appreciated far more than presents - I'll be providing some food, cake, and maybe the non-alcoholic beverages. I'd be much happier seeing you all than anything else.

That said, if you do have some odd, overwhelming urge to buy me something, I have a list of suggestions (OK, they're mostly hints for Steph, but hey) in the form of an Amazon wishlist.

My Amazon.com Wish List

See as many of you there as possible tonight!
