The Geek Fu Morning Show

Back on track, here’s an essay-filled geek fu!

Report of the D&D Duke University demo
I announce Voices: New Media Fiction - a podiobook featuring Cory Doctorow, James Patrick Kelly, Patrick McLean, JR Blackwell, Jared Axlerod, Paul Jenkins, Tee Morris, Daniel Emery and Jason Erik Lundberg
I will be at StellarCon this year
We saw a fun musician last night - his podcast is The Night Sound Show
I discuss email
Essay of the week: Obi Wan, Can I Borrow the Keys to the Car?

In this podcast I test out my iRiver microphone and discuss my upcoming talk at Duke about D&D, the horrible horoscopes in the paper, and the creation of stress in lives without it.

Someday I’ll get this damn podcast back on track.

Show notes n stuff:
I apologize for name idiocy - check the blog post below this one for more info. I’m not going to write “cheapass gamer” seventeen times again.
I make a deal with my listeners on politics.
My husband Jim has a podcast: The Vintage Gamer. Check it out.
And I did not get everyone sick!
I promise to work soon on my podcast CD.
I read some comics by listener Daniel Warner - check out Cocopiazo
My to-be-read list is large, but I’m starting to get through it with the help of Robin McKinley
This week’s essay discusses all the lessons we teach children and how they aren’t used as adults.

So. Ralph Nader instead of Ross Perot in Podcast #55.

And I got the wrong Cheap Ass gamer. The cheapass gamer who mixes videogame music in a podcast and contributes to the Gaming Uncensored Podcast was kind enough to point out that it was the Cheap Ass Gamer, not he, who made the donations I mentioned in Podcast #52. CAG has a podcast, incidentally, if you’re a gamer who likes to save some cash.

I’m back.

[EDIT - Good lord, I’m embarrassed. Mixed up my 3rd party presidential hopefuls. It wasn’t Ross Perot who messed up the narcoleptic meds, it was Ralph Nader. Apologies all around, and thanks to Wes for the correction.]

  • I’m sick. Short podcast, no essay. Things can only improve.
  • PodcasterCon is one week away!
  • I’m opening Geek Fu to submissions
  • Go check out Paul Jenkins’ plot thingy at the Rev Up Review

Just a short Christmas note I recorded on Christmas Eve…. then carried around on my iRiver for a week.

Very sorry.
