"Excuse me, I am a time traveler but my machine malfunctioned, so I'm not sure when I am."
"It's 2020."
"Which year of 2020?"
"What do you mean?"
"Ah, so this must be the first year of 2020."
"Oh. Damn."

I posted our discussion of Little Brother by Cory Doctorow on Anchor. I have also uploaded most of Season 1 of the Related To Geeks Podcast. Season 1 was recorded in 2015 and 2016. Yeah, I know. Better times. The podcasts posted include Playing Microscope, Gateway Games, Geek Literature, and Role Playing Tips And Tricks. Here's the link to the Related To Geeks Anchor page.


Put those on your phone and listen.

Gamer+ News June 15, 2020

Megan and Larry will be hosting the Related To Geeks Book Club tonight on Inspired Unreality open game chat. The book for tonight is "Circe" by Madeline Miller. We will be in the gamerplus chat rooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Besides our book discussion we will be proposing books to read next quarter. I have a Brandon Sanderson novel to suggest. What do you want to read? Make suggestions tonight at Tenkar's or here.


I recorded Apollo Frequency tonight at ASU featuring my friends Kevin Tinker and Peyton Hendrix on trumpet and Bebop Beatniks drummer, Alex Washam. Kevin was the original Bebop Beatniks trumpet player and played with us for years until he went to graduate school.

After buying new art supplies I always need to play with them. So I drew a quick witch and used ink and the orange marker. :)

I've been really busy. (Too busy for Mastodon? Not really.)

Here's one of the thing I've been working on.

Today's Creative Commons Remix.

Fantastic Remix with jazz and experimental vocals and instrumentals.


@snowdusk_ yeah, Apple seems be be making a go out of just taking your money directly rather than trying to find sneaky ways to monetize you. Deploying things like encryption, sane browser behavior and USB ports that shut down to thwart law enforcement overreach.

I’m extracting myself from Google’s ecosystem but that doesn’t mean I’m blindly moving to iCloud et al. I’m actually replacing things like online storage with encrypted usb drives and streaming music with local MP3s.

Quantum Blues by NJHB featured on MixRemix Radio Free Culture Mix now.


New NJHB CD, Nichessa.

Recorded last Saturday night at the Public Library.


Your attention please!

Today is the Dutch #activist and #anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @Jo.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch #asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the #deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.

Read more about this all here:


This is the side of the #Netherlands you don't hear about comrades. So please don't think this country is a free haven. It' s a neo-liberal tax haven, and don't you dare to criticize the state. Of course the Dutch national media is silent about this and that in the same week as a near government coalition conflict about child deportation.

Please boost to show your #solidarity!


@hairylarry @linux I bought Homeworld II off gog.com - it would not run on Windows 10 on my machine; but Wine would do it.

I am enjoying the first show of aNONradio's newest DJ @iiogama. Good job -- such a chill setlist! I am looking forward to many episodes of this show.
