      Do you like supporting creators making entertainment? Want to win some free stuff? Well this is the week for you!


      If you have been following me on Twitter you might have seen I have a brand new copy of the D&D pop up book Dungeonology. It's huge, it's gorgeous, it's full of all kinds of D&D goodness, and I'm gonna give it away.  Or, Dungeons & Dragons & Drunks is going to give it away!  Make sure you follow D&D&D on Twitter, as this Sunday we'll be announcing how you can enter to win Dungeonology.  I promise it'll be SUPER easy to enter, and you are going to want a shot at getting this book.  It's beautiful.


      If you're more interested in actually spending some money and getting loads of stuff, then you should go check out Luke McKay's Patreon. When Luke moved to America so we could get married, we figured it would be easier for him to get art work here then for me to get oboe gigs in Canada.  After a year of being poor, getting a Green card, and working a day job, it's time he can get back to making comics and art full time.  But we need to be able to afford food, rent, and the one thing Canada provided that the US does not...HEALTH CARE.  Thus this Patreon is a fabulous chance to get Luke doing full time art again, and we all want that!


      So there are your tasks for this weekend. Go follow D&D&D and get a chance to win an awesome prize, and go support Luke's Patreon and show that RT fans support their own.


      And then come play Halo 4 or Gears 4 or or something else with a 4 with me.  

    • Waiting for Gears...

      The new digital download era is awesome. I'm absolutely on board with just downloading my game and never having to worry about disks, or stores, or anything.  


      EXCEPT download times still kinda suck.  Take Gears 4, which is currently downloading onto my Xbox as I type.  It's been going for an hour and might take a few more.  And I DO NOT trust that "Ready to start!" prompt.  It's only 26% downloaded, it's not ready yet!! Stop lying!!


      So I'm gonna go play some oboe.  Maybe record some stuff.  I usually do #TwitterOboe but I don't feel up to trying to keep up with a stream of tweets.  If you have a suggestion for something for me to play let me know.  I promise to do it...sometime....eventually...


      If you're free this evening join us for Glib Shark!  Ask me then if Gears is done downloading.


      Finally I wish my Jewish friends G'mar Hatimah Tovah. May you have an easy fast this Yom Kippur.

This is a big step into a wider D&D world, you wonderful fans deserve a podcast feed that is focused on just D&D&D, and we want to make you happy!

    • Oboe and RvB in the middle of PAX...

      2 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      The last few days was filled with a lot of good things. I've been at PAX West for the last few days, surrounded by friends, playing games, eating and drinking and in general having a lot of fantastic time with amazing people. PAX info and excitement is all over my Twitter, and images will filter over here as quickly as I can.


      In the middle of it all Episode 18 of the latest season of RvB dropped, and for the second time this season I was super excited to participate in a small musical way to the creation of this episode!


      https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CriCSmbVMAEwXYn.jpg:large


      My oboe appears for a small part of Church's Lament, and there are few words to describe how much joy it brings me to hear my professional contribution to my favorite show ever of all time. It was, as always, a joy to work with Nico, and after hearing him gush about the other musician on the roster I was super excited to hear the whole things come together.


      Miles, Nico, and the whole crew behind them have created a fantastic episode. I'm honored to be a tiny part of it.

    • PAX PRI....uh, I mean WEST

      3 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      Are you going to PAX WEST in a few weeks? I live in Seattle so the answer for me is "kinda".


      I currently have a Saturday pass, and I'm hoping to get a Friday (if anyone knows someone giving/selling a Friday pass let me know) but otherwise I'm just hanging out in Seattle during the weekend. Luke has crazy hours at work, and I don't have the money to spend all weekend shopping. BUT I will have all 4 days off and plenty of time.


      SO...are you going to be in Seattle for PAX West? Let me know so we can hang out!!

    • The End Of Day 5

      3 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      Luke and I just finished Day 5. A little later then I wanted to but better late then never.


      Up until the very end I thought it was quite good. Vague spoilers below.


      I am annoyed with the end. Not because there are no answers, because I don't need answers. Like The Walking Dead this isn't a show about the apocalypse, it is a show about these people and how they respond. I didn't need answers, but I needed closer for them. And I got none.


      The idea that we get a Season 2 does not diminish my annoyance at the end of Season 1. Because if Season 2 never happens then I am VERY unhappy with Season 1.


      Otherwise the writing was excellent, the acting was really good, the production value was outstanding, and the characters were varied and interesting and memorable.

    • gi_goku asked OboeCrazy a question

      If you could go back in time and meet one person from history (without screwing up the current timeline) who would you meet?

      Answered: Aug 11, 2016

      My great great great grandfather. I heard stories about him from my grandmother when I was a child but they were colored by time and a rather strange historic hatred. SUPPOSEDLY he was a horse thief in Russia who fell in love with the daughter of the Rabbi in town. So he "kidnapped" her, rode across Europe, got on a boat, and brought her to America. Because she was stuck with this guy in a land she didn't know she pretty much was forced to marry him and that's where my Mom's side of the family comes from.


      I believe that history is probably a little less spectatular, but still I wana meet that guy!!

    • AgentWashingtub008 asked OboeCrazy a question

      Would you rather have a pocket that can fit any 3 items, a hat that obscures your face from anyone who doesn't know it's you, shoes that make your feet never hurt, or a shirt that fits any occasion?

      Answered: Aug 11, 2016

      A shirt that fits any occasion! I don't need pockets to often, I rarely carry more then three items. I don't need to stay hidden. The shoes that make my feet never hurt could be REALLY nice....but CLOTHING THAT WORKS ANYWHERE YES GIVE ME PLEASE!!!

    • 2/3rds of 5 Days

      3 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      Because of timing I couldn't watch Day 5 when it was first released. Luke and I decided to plow through it once all 6 episodes came out. Monday we got episode 1+2 done, and tonight we watched episodes 3+4.


      No spoilers.

He's the actor for fenris...and I didn't get the full romance achievement. nor any of the exiled prince ones because bioware fucked up! said I got the achievements on biowares site but nothing on my gamertag! Jerks...and can you refriend me...I accidentally deleted you. And of course I beat the game last night huzzah for being off for 3 weeks...I have alot of freetime. Now for D&D at 7.

      Yeah I don't remember it being that bad.
      I also don't remember picking stones being that bad, either.

      I was spoiled in Milwaukee, where they seem to constantly run plows like crazy and the driveway was hardly more than three car lengths and three widths... and they had a snow blower.

      I never had a blower as a kid but I didn't have to shovel much because my dad had a snow blower attachment for the tractor. It was... ridiculous. it was more of a snow annihilator. Easily 8 feet tall, 10 feet wide... it was a monster and made moving snow a joke on the farm.

      No problem! It's awesome they're letting you use the painting station. That should give you plenty to experiment with and there will be people around to help you out. Mini painting can get addictive, though, so consider yourself warned. ;-)

      Heh - I just got home from dropping Tim at a friend's where he's going to go sledding (and hang out inside, since it'll be dark in half an hour). We had to shovel the driveway to get the car out; my visions of simply driving the Subaru through the 2 feet of white stuff turned out to be WILDLY optimistic.

      He certainly helped, but I'd say Becky and I did considerably more work than he did. smiley0.gif
