Gail Gygax Announces Artist for Memorial Statue, Work to Begin Shortly

July 16, 2017

Guys, I finally scooped Tenkar’s Tampon (Ha! Ha ha!). Gail Gygax contacted me directly to make the announcement that she’s chosen an artist for the Gary Gygax Memorial Statue of Gary Gygax. I know you’re all dying to know about the next stage of development of this exciting tribute to the creator of roleplaying games, here’s what she sent:

Dear YDIS, I write you today not to talk about the exquisite firmness of your buttocks, which exceed in all meaningful ways the flabby and pockmarked bottom of Kent. After much deliberation and a search that literally scoured the globe, I have chosen an artist to create a likeness to celebrate Gary and his accomplishments for all eternity. I have chosen… Scrap Princess!

The reasons for choosing Scrap Princess I think you’ll agree are obvious. The amazing talent stands out head and shoulders above her contemporaries. When I asked her initial thoughts about the form a statue to Gary might take, after several weeks of work she returned to me with this masterpiece:

gary at play with the world

It’s gorgeous! And to think it only took 2 months for Scrap Princess to draft this masterpiece. But she wasn’t satisfied and she’s actually forwarded several other concepts for consideration:

gary's creativity

A new Michelangelo in Wisconsin! Also this:

the lord gary christ

Amazing Scrap Princess, simply amazing. And another Scrap Princess color original:

beautiful gary

Bravo! Scrap’s artistry really captures Gary’s love of life.

There’s so much to love here, it may take us awhile to select a finalist. I’m leaning toward the red & blue scribble, which I think is not only exquisite artwork but also dramatically showcases Scrap Princess’s style and true talent. I expect this statue will rival the antiquities of Renaissance Italy and launch an artistic revival that may heal our fractured world. Sincerely yours, GG

This is exiting! I’m glad Gail has made a choice that dips into the deep talent pool of the OSR to honor the origins of the hobby. Looking forward to work beginning soon.

    Crap Princess’s sketches actually translate quite well to sculpture work. Check out her Lucy Ball work:

    Great scoop. Hopefully you did not have to compromise your moral standards to get Gail to open up to you this way.

    The blowSR hangs by a knife… if the GARY OF WONDROUS POWER doesn’t work we’re all screwed! Well, we can always hope that Gail magic jarred him into a crystal ashtray… now we just need to transfer him into a virtua-Gygax program to continue reviewing game books he didn’t look at…. “ZOUNDS! YOU’LL AMAZE IN A VERISIMILITUDE OF WONDERS BEHOLDING WHAT EMERGES FROM YOUR MOUTH AS YOU POUR THROUGH THIS BOLD EXCRETION FROM THE AUTHOR! THIS BOOK BOMB IS PRINTED ON PAPER!”

    You guys remember that dude we trolled a few years ago, TheConservativeDM? I thought he was actually a front and had forgotten about him. Well turns out he is now the High Priest to alt-right also-rans Jeffblow and Circumsova. Both of those losers go on about the One True Way to play D&D like a JMal suppository. Circum just linked to a ConservativeGM (who now calls himself the Alt-RightDM) post about good and evil in gaming/real life, which is in turn bitching about some other tool’s blog.

    https://gamingwhileconservative.wordpress.com/2017/07/18/the-angry-gm-is-a-fking-coward/

    ” Sloppy, sloppy thinking and blindness. You can’t turn on the news without seeing the forces of good (Christendom/Trump) in conflict with the forces of evil (Islam/The rest of Washington D.C.).”

    “The fact that we live in an age where scientism is rampant and people’s education has left them susceptible to the whispered seductions of the, “Well, that’s just like, your opinion, man,” crowd doesn’t negate two THOUSAND years of study and scholarship.”

    Worth a laugh to read. Still not sure this not trolling, given how over the top he was and is. Really reads like something Schiz would do (like the Stonefister take-down of Witchiepoo).

    The above Bloodymage comments have taken me back to those Halcyon days of Bloomania.

    I’m still in mourning over the lost chance to attend BlooeyCon or whatever the name of the yearly gaming gathering he was planning for in Arizona. Even though he was in frequent home moving by then, he had faith he would be in that area for a long time, filling up his days during the year prepping for his con. Wheeling and dealing with hotels and convention centers (probably initially offering them a chance to partner with him for a nominal fee), arranging special guests (can’t remember the name, but he had actually gotten a VIP to commit), commissioning souvenirs and a mascot costume, and enticing us all by declaring his dog walker fiancé had stepped up to concoct a delicious devilled egg recipe to serve in the hospitality suite, likely to have been ground zero for gamer dork fun to bar none.

    Sure, I could go to any con to see mouth breathing, irregular goatee sporting, pot bellied RPG fuckfaces. But Blooeycon would have been a whole new level. Hell, even if it had been a failure, me and ol’ Blooey would have been at a table in a roomy but silent hall, him grinning that sweet Blooey grin as he decimated my party who dared face The Stink in Golanda. I’d have sat there eagerly, sucking on a Newcastle, and just basking in the Bloo glow.

    Ah, what might have been, Sigh!!!

        I’d say he was sort of our own personal Blooey, except I didn’t want Blooey to die. Still, being the biggest, lamest laughing stock in the OSR has him on a collision course with his suicide tub. Hope you’re having a great summer, Kunthole! remember; the pain can end today! No more pain!

    OK, I know I pick on this little racist faggot too much, but alt-right hate mongers deserve it (particularly when they are besmirching Pulp Fiction by claiming it as their own). And his “You are doing it wrong” is the standard issue bullshit from the early days of the BlOwSR, so he deserves some highlighting. Here, in the third part of his in depth exploration of how we have all misunderstood alignment the last five decades, he talks gives some specific examples:

    “People DON’T understand the Law/Chaos spectrum any more than they understand the Good/Evil spectrum. For instance, many people think of Chaotic Good as the either the guy who does some good but is inherently selfish or someone who tries to do good but breaks laws while doing so. A lot of people would give Robin Hood as an example of Chaotic Good, but they’d be wrong, and here’s why:”

    For the rest of the holy decree, you will need to check out his exciting post (with helpful links to the other two parts where he demonstrates why we have all been misunderstanding Detect Evil spells):

    • Let me tell you about my character permalink
      July 31, 2017 9:20 pm

      Ooooh, an alignment debate! Here’s my unsolicited rambling manifesto, I mean scholarly response, on the subject:

      Alignment is just a bunch of baloney that allows you to play the game.

      If you’re a turbo murder hobo then you’re just plain evil no matter what. Just because the monster you’re killing is a nasty goblin that doesn’t make you a good guy. There are no such things as monsters in real life. If it walks on two legs and uses tools and fire and speaks English and wears a hat then it’s just a stand-in for an ugly little person. Massacring his whole family at dinnertime isn’t OK because “oh, he’s evil” and “he was definitely going to do something bad (eventually).” A man (or a goblin) is defined by his actions. Or as the sage Batman said “It’s not what you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.” If your paladin ambushes and greases a dozen goblins that were just minding their own little goblin business because he thinks they are “evil” then he is not a shining beacon of light and justice, he’s a mass-murdering vigilante psycho. But you can’t play the game that way so you have to label these guys “good” and these guys “evil.” And since your average D&Der is a mouth breathing Aspie (present company excluded of course) they throw in Law and Chaos too. You may as well endlessly complicate things. Why not?

      That’s all alignment is. It’s just a made-up game mechanic that lets you play the game. It has no application in real life because people have free will in real life and can choose to be a good or bad person everyday.

      I’ll end with some Helpful Playing Tips:

      As a player you always want to choose Neutral so the DM doesn’t screw you over when you accidentally touch the evil altar or whatever.

      In the same vein, playing a chick so you don’t get charmed by all the magic mermaids is also a good idea but then you have to spend the night talking like a little old lady from a Monte Python skit. YMMV depending on the dorkiness of your group.

        July 31, 2017 11:48 pm

        It’s all gone downhill since Good and Evil came into the equation. Alignment is for deciding who (or what) can Turn/Smite/Detect who (or what) and that’s an end on it. Morality can get te feck, as they say in the Old Country.

        I know this, and I WASN’T EVEN THERE.

      The central point, which I believe has been touched upon many times from the 2nd edition (when things got writefaggity) to Book of Fucking Vile Darkness by MC onwards, is that of a universe with an objective moral order, which I guess makes sense if you are going to use something as wonky as alignment and battles between fundamental forces as opposed to DH style character traits and shades of grey.

      The murder hobo as the functional sociopath would probably fall into the evil spectrum but a Faffhrd or a Conan could well fall into the non-turd in the punchbowl category. I’ve always viewed it as part of the GM’s task to portray the world in such terms that fun adventuring stuff (i.e jailbreaks, theft, assasination) does not automatically land one in the moral abyss. Ultimately, alignment is kind of shit, which is why I actually prefer the vague Lotfp/Carcosa variants.

      Hey Venger,

      You blogged last year about a game you ran at Garycon where the players found a secret room with three statues and they could not figure out what to do in it. One of the players said (in character) that it was the most boring secret room they ever found which made you feel like the shittiest GM in the world.

      Well, when I read that I felt like the shittiest player in the world. I didn’t realize how thoughtless and mean-spirited that was to say. I apologize. I may be a little socially maladjusted (obviously if I frequent this site) but that is no excuse. Rest assured that the descriptor “boring” is not one I would knowingly use to describe your insane games. I had a blast and hope to game with you again sometime. I was going to apologize to you at Garycon this year but I never ran into you.

        No need to apologize, your comment was spot on – it was pretty boring, which is a cardinal sin for GMs everywhere.

        I should have prepared more. I’d say 95% of the time, inspiration is at hand and I don’t need no stinking notes! But that leaves me with 5% of my ass being uncovered.

        At least I rectified my screw up a minute later. Though, a minute can be an eternity when you’re sitting in the hot seat.

Scrap’s work, of which I’ve viewed a lot of, has NEVER EVER reminded me of kid scribble. FUCK ME, her shit is powerful and hits hard on so many levels. It conveys massive anxiety produced by fear of the unknown. Her images project an ‘outside of time and space’ motion as if she was able to capture art that is 4 dimensional. Her images capture motion.Her images are hidden within themselves. Her images demand that your imagination fills in the blanks based on what horrifies you.
        Her images can be hellish.

        And as I said above there’s also a reason Crap’s *ahem* “art” is routinely described as childish; it’s not because it’s “hellish” or “powerful” or “hits hard”, but because it’s shitty and looks like a fucking child drew it.

    http://www.therpgsite.com/showthread.php?37363-Maze-of-the-Blue-Medusa

    Solid Gold Takeaway: Zakina thinks D&D is inherently nihilistic. He makes an argument that encompasses everything that is not solid meatspace, and then of course denies it. He is objectively insane.

    Bonus takeaway: he thinks the absence of a god makes life inherently meaningless.

    Yeah, the Attack lives in a shithole surrounded by dead-enders; so nobody else’s life has meaning either – and if you think differently you are a LIAR.

        Pundo does have some libertardian roots so mea culpa on that one, but we are not truly arguing Pundo is a nazi or anything like that right? I mean he’s a shitbag with poor physical and mental hygiene but we don’t actually believe he supports Breyvik or Nazi’s or hates jews or mexicans or whatever the talking point du jour is right?

        I suggest that marching with Nazi’s stuff is because of a quasi-religious devotion to free speech pur sang and freedom of association as a result of his lolbertarian heritage, not a desire to abolish democracy and a desire for ethnic cleansing. At best one can make the argument that he is cynically pragmatic, unwilling to hold his own allies by the standards he upholds.

        I have no illusions where I stand, this is about figuring out where Pundit stands (answer: the side that is likely to get him a shitty column).

Mostly, I stuck to 1E, TFT, and a bit of GW and classic Traveller. Lately, it’s been house ruled 1E, one shots.

        For me it’s a steady diet of of Stars without Numbers coupled with an extended stiched together-campaign of Lotfp adventures. I have’t gotten to play any of the really rapy or shitty ones but I can vouch for the Grinding Gear not being fun and the Tower of the Stargazer/Tales of the Scarecrow being very fun. Crystal headed children is good if you have anyone with a mild gambling addiction. I also played a shitload of Carblowsa and kind of liked it, making me wish it was written better.

        In all honesty, the more I play Lotfp the shittier I start to find the ruleset. The modern armour rules are sloppy, the domain management rules make no sense and are kind of pointless and shit and I had to use fucking RaPLand ‘s mounted combat rules to make any headway. Raggs has the occasional glimmer of a good idea but he is undisciplined (like most fat people are) and lazy (see point 1) and it reflects in his writing.

        I always felt LotFP was sloppy from the get go. I honestly don’t understand why it even has whatever popularity it does: it just feels like a barely-houseruled bog standard D&D clone, which makes me think why not just play actual D&D?

        I’ve been looking through various hacks and clones while working on my own thing, kinda surprised (but maybe I shouldn’t have been) that most of them are more or less direct D&D ports, just sometimes with ascending AC and attack bonus-instead-of-THAC0.

      “The cleaning staff in the posh rooms of the JW Marriott leave your toiletries in parallel lines, and they won’t stop leaving new soap, even though you haven’t used the old soap, so theoretically, over time, the suite could just fill up with soap.”

      Lotsa gems from his mentally-challenged viewpoint – and you have to wonder if he even half understands Zak’s pygmallion-like level of mockery of him – but this might encapsulate his writing. Is he stupid or does he, theoretically, think everyone else is?

    I see pictures of Zak getting Misty over a few hundred dollar bills in hand. Another faked fucking thing from Hukster Zak. If that was money from folk who bought Raggi crap, it would be 20’s (and checks). C’mon Zak.

    No way they made enough money for Zak and that whore’s trip, much less Raggi’s

    Charlotte is pretty, but that shot of Zakina’s splooge all over her ravaged butt is one her kids will treasure, and the threshold where she enters 10-foot pole territory..

    I wonder if the Attack is even marginally aware of the people who were trying to sleep on the floors next to him, or even the people at the ennies (yeah,fuck ’em but still) that his and Faggi’s skank-ass crew insulted with their junior-high pep-rally profanity.

    Obvious Troll is obvious.

    And that cock-sucking coward will still troll everywhere but here.

    And Patrick? Veins was OK but not award-level. He is smart enough to realize he is riding coattails, so that must really kill him.

He planned a big party, but can only take like two steps in any direction of his piece of shit off site low rent hotel room (the new whore must be so impressed).

    I have an idea for a cop style Columbo TV show. I will write, produce, direct and star in this show

    Here is the formula:

    A regular guy kills his wife because she is a stupid weak nagging cunt like all women. This is the format for every episode which I expect to run weekly for 350 years.

    The Columbo guy who is a mixture of Columbo-Sherlock Holmes-Kent is extremely sympathetic to the murder of women who are stupid weak nagging cunts especially wives who listen to the radio and think morality is something to learned from extreme-left-wing-journos on the bbc and like niggers think that logic is a white conspiracy.

    My cop show would have the detective hero, lets call him Plato, killing wives he comes across just because he thinks they are scum whether they are involved in the murder case or not.

    The second season has Plato murdering muslim scum like the Pakistani child rapists in the north of England but if the budget is big enough the UK invades Saudi Arabia, exterminating those muslim scum and all the normal people in the world cheer and breath a sigh of relief. No more evil in the world.

    Well, there was that one con Bloomeister was three weeks early for (after like a 2000 mile drive). That should be worth some props from the con staff, showing up on the Wed before the event to do pre-con setup and the registration desk guy saying “um, could you guys talk to that weird, squinty eyed dude over in the hotel café? He’s been in there for three days drinking water and stealing sugar packs, muttering something about being chased out of a church lot”

    Serious question. Who is the best choice for a Bloodymage film? Coen Bros or Farrelly Bros? I’m torn on if it should be a surrealistic character study, or a goofball comedy.

    I’m the only one who honestly wants your pain to end.

    It recently struck me that you probably have only a kitchenette so no stove to suffocate your head in. And no bathtub for wrist slitting. Shit, the dump you live in probably has a shared shower down the hall.

    May I recommend hurling yourself off a freeway overpass into oncoming truck traffic? Think about it. You can down a bottle, get up to the pass, shed a few bitter tears over your failed an miserable joke of a life (I’m going to guess you are one of those heaving sobers), and dive out into open air. You’ll turn almost instantly into red jelly, and it’d be entertaining to the kids in the car behind the truck.

He’d be spotted in church parking lots and lurking at AM PM condiments counters. His hazy form would materialize outside Garycon restrooms, muttering about “death to all PC’s” and “buy some product,” before vanishing again, with a final whisper “meeeeeaaatllloooooaaaaffff nnnniiiiiggghhhhhttttttt…”

      Was Bloo living in Texas at the end? I wish he was still around to drop some folksy wisdom on the catastrophes there. Probably simply along the lines of “I manage to stay dry for all of ten minutes. Sigh!”

    Frank M. shits where he wants to eat:

    Once upon a time

    (in a little village in the realm of Empyrea on the continent of Aquaria, on the eastern shore of the great sea called the Solnor, in the constellation of the Whale on planet #4 of the star some call “Tau”, about 5 millennia after the birth of a famous Terran religious figure and a few centuries after the Interregnum)

    …the mayor of Dragonsfoot village held a referendum. The people then decided that Freedom and Truth were more important that Unity or Friendship. Thus they began a great experiment with profound philosophical implications. As long as they didn’t attack one another, they could say anything, to anyone.

    Over a decade, the people of Dragonsfoot were conquered by the dominant among them, some of them half-Trolls. These half-breeds were almost identical to the good, faithful local folk. But they placed Freedom above all else, at the cost of Community. (Trolls are always suspicious and hostile, and are really quite easy to spot.) And so Truth reigned, and hospitality and respect nearly vanished.

    One day, a minor Prince came to visit the village. He didn’t bring his Aides or his Guards; he came himself, wanting to truly meet and learn of the people. The Prince thought they would be like normal citizens of the realm — cautious but welcoming, self-interested but offering friendship. Instead, the Trolls pressed him with personal questions, and pelted him with garbage. They were not interested in the welfare of the Town, nor the Realm itself; they were only interested in themselves, and keeping control of others.

    And so the Prince rode back to his castle and pondered the situation. Truth was a good thing, as was Honesty. But when they combine to destroy Community, they become a Problem.

    The People of the Village of Dragonsfoot have a Decision to make:

    If their village continues to be inhospitable, suspicious, and unwelcoming, then they will be cut off. They cannot interact with the Realm, lest they undermine its huge and magnificent community. But they cannot be destroyed, for they are living beings, worthy of the universal pursuit of happiness. So they will be left alone, to wither or rise, as they see fit… but Alone.

    The town of Dragonsfoot, on the Dragontail peninsula of the continent of Aquaria in the Realm of Empyrea, is about to rise or fall. Their fate is yours to choose.

    The appearance and description of the village of Dragonsfoot in the Empyrea campaign set (release Summer 2018, featuring a dozen of the biggest names in RPG history) is up to you, local residents. Will you remain overrun by Trolls (and their leader Bote), or will you rise up and place Community first?

    The Empyrea design team will watch, wait, and write up the result by February 2018. The future of the village is in your hands. We will not interfere; this is YOUR problem, not ours.

      Dragonsfoot needs a good shake up too. My biggest problem with DF was that it was not original AD&D centered as advertised and D&D is all about mood. Just like this website is all about the need for flowing raw sewage on the D&D industry.

      Wait a minute, let me redirect this shit pipe back into Frank Mentzer’s beard.

      I’ll never forget the look on his face when I was talking to Gary at the 2007 Lake Geneva con. Confusion, betrayal, it was as if he was going to say:

      “But my lord Gygax, this is the abomination amongst the Dragonsfoot Landsraad…”

    Wow, enough talking material for a thousand comments. Better get a new post up on this, STAT.

    EOTB is now a folk hero, I guess. I like what Trent has to say, though I know it’s just boiling down to his Gary worship.

    I played D&D for almost 40 years, but only found out who Mentzer was a few years ago. I think it was actually in a post here, about Frank’s pay for appearances or something. I never owned any boxed sets. But it was seeing his DMing on YouTube (pointed there by a DF retard who was touting it as his example of how to run his own games) that made me wonder what the fuss was. I know a con game with mouth breathing fuckfaces is different from (probably) his home sessions with whatever old neckbeards, but it gives you a good idea. 30 minutes to map 15 feet of hallway and to get a door open.

Not giving credence to the “Somebody stole Frank’s IP! That is not his language cadence!” conspiracy, but if those Mods – Papers n’ Pussless, Mattblew, and VulcanSteve – claim taking the highroad by not airing the dirty behind-the-scenes laundry, then they should stick to that rather than running to KKK to snicker and bask in mob approval.

    A blast from the past; selected quotations from the first few pages of Dragonsfart’s Q and A with Frank Mentzer, Part 1:

    “I worked closely with many top artists and got along great, simply by respecting them as professionals.”

    “The lawyers force us to go out and kick people around. This is The Way It Is. If you don’t like the results, change the legal system. :/”

    “btw, I’m not at all offended by folks’ personal opinions, even if they go against me.”

    “But to write for publication — including Footnotes hereabouts — I spend serious time and skull sweat, for I have found that however humble my intentions, my words in print come back to jeer at me for decades thereafter.”

    “You bear a heavy mantle as DM, and you have duties. Be honest always. When you have an oops, be forthright and try to amend ongoing incidents… Be dramatic if it suits you, there’s an entertainer hidden in all of us.”

    Greetings!

    Let’s start from scratch.

    My name is Frank. A long time ago I worked for TSR and Gary Gygax, and I wrote some things.

    Now it’s 35 years later, and most tabletop hobby gamers don’t know me. Many have never heard of me. There are a lot of great games out there, and it’s hard to pick one.

    Thank you for your time and interest.

    When I was Gary’s Creative Aide, we talked about my Campaign. We decided to publish it, but Gary wanted it very distant, with no active connections to his continent. That’s what he wanted so that’s what I did. Earlier plans didn’t materialize, so the time is now, sadly 9 years after my friend left us.

    Empyrea is based on three premises: magic instead of Technology, a sentient but indifferent Planet who knows how everything can be in balance, and royals who place quality of life (for all) above unbalancing mass whims (like war and wealth).

    These premises have far-reaching consequences, and I have spent decades extrapolating the results and applying them to an entire continental society. (I have over a thousand chatroom game logs, i.e. my laboratory.)

    Our story is about Empyrea at its height. It is geographically constrained on all four sides, and Evil wants to spoil the party. But at the moment it’s a comfortable Realm, the sort of world in which your current player characters have thrived. They’ll find a second home in Empyrea.

    We plan to release the core set by next Summer (Kickstarter in October). If it is well-received, we’ll offer a whole line of supporting products. We’re trying to make Empyrea available for various Fantasy RPG systems, and a science fiction interface for the offplanet setting. These are plans, but only the future will reveal the results.

    SPOILERS: Additional sub-plots involve orcs trying to be civilized, dragons deciding not to be adventurer-fodder any longer, an undersea race of giant squid who actually rule the planetary ocean, a Lost World right next door, giants who may have an offplanet heritage, and Immortal beings who might just erase everything and start over.
    But that’s all in the background, and won’t affect you… much.

    Why will this take 9 months to produce? Because Loxley is assembling fantastic talents from all fields, but few are doing it full-time. You’ll soon see 30 names. These tremendously talented people work with many companies. We just have to deal with the logistics.

    Thanks again for your interest. More to come soon.

    Frank

      I played in a game of his once (I was there!) that was some kind of murder mystery who-dun-it that takes place in a big modern office building with a security system powered by D&D magic spells and containing magic copier machines and stuff. It was OK, but weird. It kind of relied on an Asperger’s-level understanding of D&D magic to solve the mystery.

      Is this what Empyrea is going to be like? Maybe combined with a witchy new age magick Earth Mother Gaea and some Trekkie/Commie-type leaders who are royal but also somehow non-rich hippie peaceniks?

      I can’t imagine why Saint Gary wouldn’t want something like that in his campaign world.

      In addition I must castigate Frog Gode for living in a 3rd world country that purports to be part of the EU yet fails spectacularly in every aspect of running a simple airline. I took a transfer via Paris on my way from Canookistan. I am never flying Air France again.

      • Frog Gode permalink
        September 19, 2017 12:30 am

        I vowed the same thing years ago. Air France is nothing more than a huge expense receipts generator these days, and unless you are going to one of our former colonies, you’ll only meet drunk executives and refueling technicians’ relatives flying on employee discount (there are like millions of them). Planes are always late, and you have to connect at Charles de Gaulle, which is the dirtiest hub I have ever seen. Inflight meals are the only thing that keep that sad excuse for an national company a notch abose Alitalia.

      • PrinceofNothing permalink
        September 19, 2017 10:23 am

        De Gaulle is vaguely reminiscent of J.G Ballard, a modern concrete structure that exists not as a thing of itself but as an expression of the pathology of its inhabitants. As one stands for 45 minutes looking over abandoned assembly lines and metal detectors, waiting for the two that are actually staffed to get to your fucking luggage whilst a stoically cheerful airline attendant herds the increasingly belligerent crowds through a single security checkpoint, one understands both the need to blow oneself up and the need to opress minorities. The catastrophic damage and disrupted flesh and organs inflicted by a home-made explosive no more then the a cathartic piece-de-resistance to a process already fully embodied by the stained yet grandiose architecture and the empty-eyed staff, the chronically understaffed airport already subliminally preparing one for the tragic shock of the bombing.
        Looking at a place that has a million shopping mall attendants yet insufficient customs officials to man even a fifth of the available booths, one begins to subconsciously view the people around oneself only as negatives, person-shaped holes indicating spaces where people should not be. In the Id, the bombing comes to represent the righting of a cosmic wrong, a primal act of creation.
        In a similar way, the lines, vast distances and belligerent safety posters, inexplicably written in Chinese make one feel isolated and alone, a stranger not just in a strange land, but hailing from a place that may be no more then a delusion, the fellow passengers little more then obstacles to a much desired escape from purgatory.
        There is no banter in de Gaulle, the sneering, disparaging comments serving only to further heighten the isolation, for the airline personel do not care, and have indeed, forgotten that it is possible to do so. One seeks to distance oneself from one’s fellow passenger, subconsciously avoiding any association with them in a vain attempt to avoid their fate. In opressing those that are most unlike us in physical appearance, the passenger can, at least to himself, avenge himself upon the airport.

        I think that’s just an indication of Greg Gorgonjizz’s non status.

        Nah, he disappeared his blog and G+ presence. He had started stupidly wading into politics so it probably had to do with that

        No worries. Apparently he was a Nazi supporter and Zak S and Pundit have already spoken up to defend Nazi rights to free speech or deathcamps or something. Those two Half Jews sure know their alt right Nazi sympathizer fan base!

        The spice (and Jew skin lampshades) must flow!

        Yeah, I’d love to hear more details. GG had one of the more interesting oeuvres in the OSR, and he didn’t seem like he was always pitching product.

        I never would have pegged -heh- him as an Anime Nazi type, judging by his music selection and geographic location, I figured he was a slightly left-of-center-largely-apolitical type.

        He didn’t nuke his youtube channel… seems like diversity-in-comics broke his brain.

        Evidently his efforts at doing the real legwork on the premier blOwSR product, Potty Gods, was not appreciated…or already forgotten in the deluge of crap.

    See, Kunt? You probably worked on your dry, unwitty, schizophrenic opus for a day, while Bigby’s, Prince, and the rest knock out the yuk’s chop chop and lickety split.

    Hell, I’ll have a go at high poetry:

    “tar rah rah boom deeay
    that cunt Kent died today
    ha ha ha hip hooray!
    We’re having a parade!

    His bod will start to smell
    his soul shoots down to hell
    down to that awful place
    demon spunk on his face”

    I really hit a nerve with that poem of mine.

    Sometimes, a good poem can pierce with truth of photographic realism, and beyond, to a dreadful grave divine perception.

    There once was a boy who had no friends
    His name was Captain Kirks Anus
    He made friends come out of his arse
    The ydis regulars, aka
    The Shits-That-Won’t-Flush
    Using his hands he shaped his faeces
    Into his friends
    He made lots of faeces because
    He was a very stupid cunt with no education
    His name was Captain Kirks Anus
    The police were after him
    Because he was a leper and a psychopath
    And kept making shitty friends from his anus
    And these friends were like shitty rabbits
    All covered in shit
    But frightened rabbits
    They were tough internet rabbits
    Tough ydis rabbits hand-made from the shit
    Out of Captain Kirks Anus
    The dumbest boy in his class
    No one ever liked him
    Cos he was very stupid and had shit on his hands.

    Looks like Kent’s boyfriend/Macris’ meal ticket is crashing-and-burning:

      Good thing Macris never updated his pro social presence to reflect the move. If it was a move, and not just his masters at Defy loaning him out to a secret buddy. Hey, Travis, are you still one of the mods on this site? Can you comment, or do you no longer give the half shit about any of this?

      Hah! I wonder if Macris is trying to network among those “confirmed” speakers for his new meal ticket. I could see him blowing rent-an-SS-goon Erik Prince for access to his abusive sister Betsy “rape isn’t so bad” Devos, and from there access to the Orange One himself.

    OK, the RPGPlagiarist did an interview with Gorgonmilk. Some interesting stuff, despite Tarnowski making it all about him, as usual.

      Tarno sure tried hard to enlist GG as a political ally, but GG didn’t take the bait. Meanwhile, in the comments, Scott Anderson and Oakes Spaulding showed up to bitch about SJWs… SSDD.

      As usual, Tarno mentions that his ancestors died in Nazi concentration camps, but somehow he’s more upset about some fat girl with blue hair and a Tumblr than his is about emoboy Nazis.

      I think Greg was railroaded- there’s a far cry between writing that hunting down and beating up some scrote is disquieting, and being a white supremacist. That whole Mongrel Banquet Club seems like a bigger circle jerk than this place, it’s weird to see some somewhat familiar names associated with the group, especially knowing that they’d target a peer the way they did.

      • Timotheus permalink
        September 24, 2017 6:19 pm

        Yeah, Biggs, agreed on all points. Scotty and Oakes virtue signalling about their strawmen, Pundejo’s willingness to march with nazis if they are blabbing about Free Speech despite their supposed murdering of his family, all while he is obsessed with some antifa chick that doesn’t shave her pits. And Gorgonmulch getting railroaded – seems symptomatic of our political discourse these days – if you do not agree to the letter with me on everything, then you HATE BLACK PEOPLE and I DESPISE EVERYTHING YOU STAND FOR (whatever it really is). This is the first I’ve heard of the Mongrels, though, and I have no idea on their membership. Not too impressed with their tactics, seems like Zak’s playbook with his minions.

        I think the worst thing about the whole kerfuffle is the bait-and-switch. If they portrayed themselves as 3edgy5me, then got all offended when GG took them at their word and went on the attack, that’s a real shitty way to go about things.

        The real puzzler is that some of these people have been prolific OSR product-pushers, so there will probably be a serious shakeup/realignment in the works. Even now, Gavin has got to consider the flow of spice, now that GG is a pariah.

      Pundick is a subhuman blowhard pile of feces. I hope he gets tetminal cancer.

      Also, another generous donation to Planned Parenthood has been made in Oakes Spaulding’s name.

    So Jeffblow has saved fantasy literature, turned himself into a ripped PUA while making you do the same, and now he has saved your D&D games from the blahs.

    “And I’m not joking when I say this, but I’ve heard accounts of what people’s D&D sessions were like before they read my book. It’s not pretty, y’all.”

    https://jeffro.wordpress.com/2017/09/23/appendix-n-and-the-good-news-of-gaming/

    This boy just can’t stop sucking his own pud. And I bet his gaming sessions are the fucking worst.

    In other news, Circumsova has picked up one of Grogturdia’s old banners to loudly proclaim to us (for the thousandth time) that Tolkien had only MINIMAL influence on D&D.

    Can’t wait til these bozos get caught up to the 2010-era blOwSR blog posts. Then, they’ll release the Dungeon Pulp Alphabet while screaming they are saving pulp, gaming, AND the alphabet from THEM (because THEY don’t want you to have it).
