So apparently someone commissioned Fay Helfer to create a handmade wooden Risk game board fashioned after the map of Westeros.
Wonderful craftsmanship and custom bags for game pieces which would seem to be coloured after several of the larger Westerosi Houses make me wish I had the sort of coin to just go about hiring talented artists willy-nilly. Also drool-worthy as are the pyrography-based character portraits she's made along with it.
So Mr McFerrin is at it again, I swear on the inside he's surely cackling with glee and screaming "DANCE MY PRETTIES! DANCE FOR ME!" when he pulls this stuff. Lucky for the rest of us, the effect of his taking a level in Thrallherd is pretty awesome.
Just try to watch this without smiling. It's just perfect, I appreciated his earlier work but damn this is some transcendent stuff right here. Enjoy!
Oh yes. Holy fuck yes. This is genius. Thank you internet, thank you so very much for this gift you have given us today. Well... the internet and Stuart.
This is the most amazing music video I've seen today. Which is not saying a lot I guess... but still... It's pretty amazing.
Over at dorkly.com they've been ruminating on just what might happen if Bowser killed Mario and Peach decided she'd had enough. I have to admit when I read the original Super Mario Bros. manual back when I was young and charming it was impressed upon me just how badly Bowser had screwed over the Mushroom Kingdom.
After what I admit was an unreasonable amount of teasing on our Facebook page, we're finally posting a peek at a couple of the tracks from our soon to be released CD. Produced in a hectic storm of activity one weekend with the help of Greg Clifford of Sound As Ever, we hope you enjoy them.
You can download these track for free right now, we've tried to keep the audio quality as close to the CD as possible when encoding them. No guarantees as to how long we'll make them freely available for, we still reserve all rights but if you have friends that would like it by all means send them over to download a copy for personal use!
If you were visiting last August you might remember the Game Of Thrones RPG video I posted. I was pretty happy to see that another had been made for the second "A Clash Of Kings" season.
Many thanks to Mr Kershaw for letting me know!
