We have been doing some website migration because of changing companies for my web hosting. And most of the website is restored, including the blog archives for September 2010 and earlier which can be found here if you are curious. I have back ups of most of the later posts and differently worded versions of the same information on various social media–particularly Tumblr and Patreon. And by ‘we’ I really mean Teresa Powell, webmistress extraordinaire. She made this go SO SMOOTHLY. And given I just updated my computer to El Capitan and decided to use a mailer instead of web based, she has greatly eased a Time of Technological Transition. Also, huge thanks to Rob Wynne who made sure I’ve had a domain name (magnusretail.com) for over a decade!
So blog. What shall I do with you? I’m thinking what I might do is repost some of the older material–mainly opinion pieces or song essays. But we shall see. It’s interesting starting tabla rasa again. (You can comment to this post with some suggestions if you like!)
Also, Teresa has set it up so you can sign up for Extremely Infrequent Emails. (Although, I’m going to launch a kickstarter this spring, so there will be some emails.)
I would be remiss if I don’t post my latest song here though. It’s called “Brooke’s Construction Paper D&D” and it is about Brooke Abbey’s stellar construction paper campaign that she’s been running at campaigns. The song and accompanying video are quite dignified and poncy. Yes. I’m sure you believe me. [Please, don’t believe me.]
Most of this was filmed at Sasquan, the 2015 World Science Fiction Convention held in Spokane, WA. Some was filmed at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. One photo is from New Orleans. Some was filmed at my house. And some in places unknown at this time.
