2013.06.13 Field Notes - "Night Sky" Edition

Field Notes - "Night Sky" Edition

I admit I'm an absolute sucker for Field Notes. I love the feel of them, and especially love the quarterly editions they come out with. This one is, unsurprisingly, right up my alley as well. I love the black, the constellations, the "reticle graph" pattern inside, and the seal of the perfect staples. I've already ordered one three-pack, but if you wanted to buy me more, that wouldn't hurt my feelings. Hurry up, though, since they'll go fast. #

2013.06.13 FEZ

FEZ

I know FEZ II just got announced today, but I'm still stuck on the original, because I've never played it. "...You play as Gomez, a 2D creature living in what he believes is a 2D world. Until a strange and powerful artifact reveals to him the existence of a mysterious third dimension." I've had a tab in my browser open to the trailer for this for weeks, and I re-watch it every day, trying to wrap my mind around this. Thankfully, they also released this game for PC and not just XBox, and it's just $10. Now to find a PC I can play this on (and to convince my wife I can buy it...) #

12 bit Blues - Kid Koala

I've been listening to this album on Spotify for the past week or so, and I really like it. Think of the blues, mixed with… well… mixing. A DJ meets a stack of old blues or jazz on 45's. Father's Day is coming up... #

2013.04.12 Zelda - Clockwork Empire

Zelda - Clockwork Empire Zelda - Clockwork Empire

"Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link."

I love the idea, and the sample artwork and write-up are spot-on. I'd love to play this game (although I doubt Nintendo would actually do it - which is a shame). #

Etchpop Woodblock Prints

Want to make your own custom woodblock prints? Now you can, with ease. Sure, you still need to go through the effort of rolling out each one, but that's the point - they're individually made… by hand. Don't get me wrong, the insane beauty of multi-layered Japanese woodblock prints is unparalleled, but still, this is pretty cool. I'd go for something fairly small, so I could use it as stationary, but then again, nobody is offering to buy one for me. #

Artisan Playing Cards - theory11.com

I love the design of these cards. It doesn't look like any faces are customized apart from the usual Ace of Spades and Joker, but those designs, as well as the design of the box and card backs, I think they're gorgeous. Last time I bought cards from Theory11 (which was for a few boxes of these Sentinals), I was blown away. Those were/are gorgeous cards. And, I've said nothing of the cool laser-etched wood box you can buy as well. #

United Pixelworkers - Standard Issue Patch

$5. I'm not sure how one of these won't end up belonging to me (though I admit they look quite a bit familiar (the Draplin-designed logo of UP obviously contributes). Maybe I'll just make sure to keep the two separated. #

2012.11.12 Retro Game Crunch - Kickstarter

Retro Game Crunch - Kickstarter

It's no secret I pretty much have a man crush on Shaun Inman. Now he's gone and come up with a Kickstarter project involving the same two collaborators as he worked with for Super Clew Land. You should back it. $25 for 6 7 games from him is a bargain, though that $75 tier sure looks appealing. #

2012.11.12 Mille Bornes Design

Mille Bornes Design

An interesting view into the historic design of Mille Bornes - a fabulous game I've always enjoyed. Growing up, we had the 1971 version in my home, which sported the 1960 card design. I'm intrigued by the “edition spécial”, but no matter which version we play, I'm most certainly going to try to Coup fourré you. #

xkcd: United Shapes of America

I'm particularly pleased to see this is available as a print. I've already purchased it, but I admit I might not hang it. That's just how I roll. Check out the detail on Colorado, because it's particularly entertaining. #
