--"There's a bit in Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's FROM HELL where the fake psychic, Lees, says: 'I made it all up, and it all came true anyway.' That's how I'm starting to feel about TRANSMETROPOLITAN. 'Feedsite listeners' are multimedia bloggers. Girls with necrotising fasciitis scars from the streets of the City turn up in Marilyn Manson videos. Two-headed cats. Smiling politicians throwing advisors to the wolves following suspicious deaths. Glasses that take photos. We're living in the future. And God help you all, it's my future we're living in."

-- In the past three weeks, I've put in almost eighty hours of overtime. Busting my ass mercilessly at work, but I've let my actual life slide, so I still feel like I've been slacking off. I haven't had the time or really the energy to work on my kung fu this week, so I still suck. I haven't even worked on my chuck strikes, which I'll sometimes cheat and do even if I don't do anything else. I usually save them for the end of my workout as kind of a reward for myself.

-- I picked up a (nearly) full set of the Punisher Armory off Ebay this week. I've been having a grand old time reliving my childhood looking through those (Sam and I used to paw through them like they were catalogs when they first came out), but really they've served to remind me that I don't own a shotgun. I think my Christmas present to myself this year is going to be a Mossberg 12-gauge pump.

-- I'm pretty much under a self-imposed house arrest this weekned. Given that I'm so out of it that I literally ran out into traffic on Thursday because I quite simply forgot to look both ways before I crossed the street, I think it's for the best. Also, see below.

Luke-- Sorry I missed your call. I hit the button to mute my ringer instead of answer the phone and I sat there saying "Hello?" into an empty phone until I got the "you just missed a call" beep in my ear. Yet more proof that I don't need to be around things.

The Invisible War: a recruiting effort

Actually, I was looking up +Tuscaloosa +roleplaying to search for new players to recruit to my game, and I hit your LJ. We may or may not have met; I'm not sure. I'm a friend of Will Hooper and went to kung fu with him a few times last year (I was the law student). I already asked Will to play, but he'll only play GURPS. Of course. (But his fiancee might play.)

I desperately need both recreation and more players, and you've got an appropriately dark sense of humor and in interest in my kind of media. (Comics. Buffy. Ellis.). So, what the hell, I decided to write you.

You probably don't have the time. But if you're interested in something weird, conspiracyish for a roleplaying game, inspired heavily by Morrison's "Invisibles" series and Mage: the Ascension, write me back. Somewhere out there is a cell of reality terrorists, and we need volunteers.


Best,
Mack

Re: The Invisible War: a recruiting effort

Sorry, but I don't really have time, or honestly inclination anymore (I haven't roleplayed in months) for a game. And by the way, no, I don't think we've met, tho we do appear to move within the same circles.
