I’m a native New Yorker, born and raised, and I’ve got to say it’s no contest, New England Clam Chowder is miles better than Manhattan Clam Chowder. They’re two entirely different beasts, though, barely anything alike.

Swery, I have not played D4 yet, but this argument is already less realistic than anything in Deadly Premonition. Nobody is on the other side of this issue.

My editors are total sweeties and I love them.
This Richard Stevens 3 sticker looks great on the band of my new headphones, too bad it only stays stuck for five seconds at a time. Stickers and fabric don’t mix.

DHP #2 features the FINAL Action Philosophers story entitled “Action Philosophy” by Fred Van Lente (fredvanlente) and Ryan Dunlavey (ryandunlavey)! 
Do you, human, use the internet? If so, you must read this story! Do it! Then thank FVL and Dunlavey at NYCC… and, as further thanks for how they’ve bettered your human existence. pick up the awesome Action Philosophers hardcover collection the Wednesday after that!

Action Philosophers is hugely important. Fred and Ryan are supremely rad dudes. 10th anniversary hardcover is out next month!

My D&D group is having a Halloween sleep-over session. I might have to make these Skittle/vodka/Sprite potions.

Do you live in New York City? Please come party with us! Tuesday, October 7th, at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe!
(Can’t make the party? You can pre-order Pen & Ink here, here, here, or here, Mom.)

I really flippin’ love this book (back cover blurb by Colin Meloy of The Decemberists) and I was happy to hastily make this gif the other afternoon for the party at Housing Works. If you’re in NYC, come meet the authors, get some sweet temporary tattoos, and then hang out at my favorite watering hole, Botanica, just two blocks away!

After posting an article on Facebook about how printing office signs in Comic Sans uses more natural resources than printing in Helvetica

Jonathan:
Hey! Let me ask you as a font nerd: what font do you use for boring, mundane office documents? Somehow I doubt it's Calibri.
Me:
I tend to default to ITC Garamond. It's professional with clean lines and stately serifs, but gentle. The serifs even have these cups to them, as though they were cradling tiny babies in their curves.
Jonathan:
See, I love that you are the only living person who'd ever say that. Thanks for your help!
I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh-darnit, people like me.
