One of the first persons I "met" in the blogosphere was Chris "Lefty" Brown. I think his musings about comic books were linked to Fred Hembeck's site. I enjoyed those, but I also appreciated his rants about music, politics and other topics. In fact, I've been listening to some of those mixed CDs he made over the years this past week.
Lately, though, he has a new love: the Married Gamers blog and podcast, which he does with his wife Kelly. I appreciate that people evolve, but most talk about gaming just makes MEGO.
So, on your birthday, Lefty, this is MY wish: give your non-gaming fans a couple pieces a week. Your three questions on Friday, and your Top 10. Heck, your Top 10 can be heavily game-oriented, but I can take that in bite-sized portions. In fact, I did listen to about 45 minutes of your last gaming podcast, and I thought that that bit about the Playstation War in the Congo and RAID would have an interest to your broader audience. And I should also note that you, and especially Kelly, are REALLY good at it, much improved over your initial attempts in the medium.
When you're giving us non-gaming stuff, you might talk about the last CD exchange that I don't think you've mentioned in a couple months, when you announced the participants I have been waiting here with a worm in my mouth ever since for your reaction to my and others' contributions.
So, Lefty, I'm really happy you've found your niche in the gaming world, but anything else you've got to share that would remind me of "Left Handed. Left Coast. Liberally Lefty" would warm my heart.
Have a great natal day! (And be glad I didn't use that OTHER picture of you.) ROG
