and the Discordians are like "We're just hangin' out. Don't mind us. Hail Eris." and before you know it, they've won.

Today Eric, James, and I went to blow some Dave & Busters game cards that we had somehow acquired. All in all we had 210 credits, I think. We played Skeeball a lot, but ultimately tried to play the most unfun games we could find. Unfortunately, the uber homo-erotic and unnappealing firefighting game was long gone, but the rowing/rapids game was still pretty lame. Then, there was a meeting of the Austin Game Developers society or something, still at that Dave & Busters. James was planning on going to it, so Eric and I weasled our way in, even though we didn't really belong.

The cool thing was that Steve Jackson was there to speak. He's responsible for Car Wars, Ogre, Illuminati, the GURPs system, and a whole lot of other cool stuff. He also, it turns out, looks like Steven King. A LOT. My copy of the Principia Discordia is one that Steve Jackson Games put out. Anyhow, the subject line above is something he said when he was talking about game balance, specifically in Illuminati. The really funny thing about the meeting was that there were a handful of really attractive girls there, and you could almost sense the awkwardness as they walked by. Occasionally, Steve Jackson would make some comment about how everyone was a geek, and you could hear the loud, derisive girl laughter cut through the room.

Luckily, since I'm Captain Suave and not a geek in any way, I was unaffected.

So next up was my novelty music show.

The relationship edition of Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter flew by really quickly- I guess because there are just a ton of songs about love, breaking up, stalking, etc, etc... It went well, and we got a few requests. Thanks to everyone who called.

Next week is interim, so there may not be a show. I'll let you know.
