I debated for a while of what i was going to write about and how to make it interesting… I could talk about some gory stuff i have seem at work/school, like skin grafts that did not work so there is this open flap of tissue an inch thick hangin off somones body and being able to then stick your entire finger into the wound because it has tunneled. But i thought i would save some of that stuff for another time.
I think i will do some installments of how the group started and had chnaged over the years or maybe i’ll start it and people can pick up where i left off. We started playing at my grandma house that was for sale so i was staying in it while it was on the market. It was so long ago i can’t remember if we started of playing D&D or Rifts. Either way the first night we were playing we ordered pizza from panago, and one of those pizzas was BBQ Chicken and the White spent half the night witht the procelen god. Again my spelling is shitty. It Was good times and Garth is an amazing DM.
Its been so long i can’t remember the orginal core group: Garth, Me, The White, Ken, Gueab, Garret???? OK help with this?
Over the past week, a few things occurred to me that made me realize just how much of a Dork I really am. My first clue really should have been that I write on a blog titled Dork and Beans. Now I am sure that everyone’s list will be different, and I encourage you to share what makes you a Dork, in the comments section below.
The White’s Top 5 Reasons You Know You Are a Dork.
5. You know the two uses for a d12 as listed in the D&D Player’s Handbook 3.0 (and you skimmed through the book to ensure that their are only two).
4. You constantly find dice underneath the cushions of your couch, and not just any dice, but polyhedron dice.
3. You find bits of broken light saber from a battle long past(and you even moved and yet you still somehow find pieces).
2. When you go to play a board game you find that the game no longer has any dice, as you raided it years earlier for the 12th level fireball.
1. You have been playing DnD every Sunday night with the same group of Dorks for the past 10 years.
So, what makes you a dork? Leave a comment below and share what makes you a Dork!
It’s 10:48, and I am burning my eyes in front of my computer. I figure today I have clocked in over 8 hours of computer time, which I think is just above my average amount of time. Having an internet obsession plus a graphic design job tends to keep a person in front of a screen.
My goal for today was to come up with ‘good idea’ of what I would like to Dork and Beans logo to look like. I don’t want to ‘really’ start promoting this blog until after we have established at least a semi solid identity. So until I come up with a logo, I can’t do all the fun stuff…
So I plunked myself in front of my computer fired up Illustrator, Photoshop, and Fireworks (plus I had Dreamweaver going as well, I was working on my wedding website at the same time) and got to work. My original vision was to have the logo as a photograph of a can of pork and beans photoshopped to say ‘Dork and Beans,’ but this wouldn’t work out very well for future plans (like t-shirts). I now have a can of pork and beans in cupboard which I will never eat. My next vision involved creating a can styled after the yellow no named brand. This was really boring. In the end I headed to Google images and found an awesome can of Heinz Pork and Beans. I thought it was stylish plus it would be recognizable as a parody of Pork and Beans.
I feel the can is still missing something. I just can’t figure it out. I wanted to add an ‘and’ in the design somewhere so that it doesn’t just say ‘Dork Beans.’ I plan on playing around with it more tomorrow, but for now I was hoping to have everybody’s opinion on the design thus far and what kind of changes they would like to see.
Well here it is: the first post at Dork and Beans.
For most of you this is nothing, wow another blog. But this is a huge step for a group of dorks. I am not going to ramble on about the humble beginnings of Dork and Beans, that is probably better left to someone that has writing ability.
The fact is: there is no real point to the Dork and Beans blog. It is just a group of dorks that write about whatever we feel like. I give you one warning though, we will get juvenile. If you hate dick and fart jokes, then maybe you should head back to the Martha Stewart blog.
Oh, and our language can be fucking awesome at times to!
At the time of writing the blog is no where near done yet. I have put up a theme, that will most likely get changed around a million times before we find something we like and eventually it will fall on me to design a unique look for the blog.
The first post of a blog is usually the most boring, so here I am getting it out of the way. The second post will be about as stellar as a kick in the junk…stay tuned.
