Warhammer: Age of Sigmar – the end of my hobby

Have you ever gotten really invested in a TV series, maybe even bought t-shirts, mugs etc. to let everyone know you’re proudly affiliated; only for it to come to an abrupt end, leaving you thinking “well now what am I going to do with my life…?” That’s how I feel about Warhammer.

At what point does inclusivity become preferential treatment?

In the 21st Century, most people are on-board with the idea that regardless of race, gender, politics, sexual orientation, body type, etc.; people within a society should be treated equally and/or given equal opportunity.

No Maybe About It

I received a blindingly stupid email from a generic, falsely cheerful marketing/training company which I thought was SO spectacularly dim-witted, it warranted sharing with the world.

The world we live in is driven by retail, the life of a nerd/geek doubly so. Pretty much everything that makes a geek happy in life is bought. Most of this can be achieved from the comfort of our own homes using that most wonderful of inventions, the internet.

“Either you get out of my way or I’m walking through you”

There are certain words, signs and gestures that transcend nationality, gender, background or language; they’re usually quite unique, and fill a certain communicative requirement that make them invaluable.

Atheism Leads to Human Extinction?

  NOTE: The following rant was written in early 2010. Wow, I was angry that day!
