The Hidden Temple

Inspired by the beautiful maps Dyson Logos (rpgcharacters.wordpress.com/) creates, I took a stab at drawing a side-view dungeon at the weekend.

It needs more tidying up and could really do with some shading or cross-hatching to bring out the edges, but I'm pleased with it as a first effort.

Anyone fancy stocking the caverns and rooms? Who or what dwells in the various catacombs and crevices?

Brenda Brathwaite makes thought-provoking games.

(Thanks to Two Scooters Press for reminding me of this and pointing to this new article.)

I watched Isao Hashimoto's video piece "1945-1998" in silence. It's that sort of piece.

Douglas Coupland has a lovely slideshow explaining 2010 to someone from 1935 in the form of a sequence of Penguin paperback covers.

First, a Fianna Fail councillor moved me to tears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jHqndf9Kx4. That's not something that happens every day.

And then I saw this boardgame (via Play This Thing; read both articles, I'd say), which I both want to play, and don't want to think about.

Lifted from The Mighty Atom (who got it from Vincent Baker)

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

You then take the pic and add text to it (I cropped mine and adjusted the color a bit, too), then post your pic.



I'm not sure if Cuarenta are Ecuadorian folk-jazz, a forty-strong band of close-harmony steveadores from Guayaquil, or just your common or garden post-rock electronic sound-collage merchants from West Ham.
