I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, and mulling it over since it was announced, and figured I would share my thoughts so far about the next World of Warcraft expansion. Keep in mind that this is not some huge breakdown and review of what we know so far, merely my opinions and thoughts on what is to come.
Hello there. I bet you forgot all about this site. Well, I didn’t. Just for many many years I have been doing other things, such as writing over at WOWInsider or World of Matticus, or participating in podcasts such as ForTheLore and InternetDragons.tv, needless to say it’s been a while. But it’s time to dust off the blog and bring it back.
The blog will be reborn and will host my new content. This includes blog posts, editorials and video game reviews. Table top games, and my vlogs and videos. It will also be home to my miniature tutorials and commentary as well as showcasing my painting. Basically it will be serving as the catch all for all of my various hobbies. I hope you’ll stick around with me while I rebuild what was once an incredibly important part of my life. The site will likely be going through a number of cosmetic changes as I get people who are better at making websites pretty to help me out. I’m poor but I can pay you in hugs or silly dances. (Hint, if you’re good with making WordPress seem interesting let me know).
I’ll also be hunting down some Art for the background and header images, so if you’re interested in contributing to the rebirth of the blog in that form, hey let me know!
So, hang around, send in ideas and be prepared for the random assortment of hobbies and thoughts that is Lodur.
People have been asking about this since I sent the recipe to McCurly today and mentioned it on twitter. Here’s my home made recipe for my BBQ sauce. It’s a bit thicker than some of the others but it’s got a sweet heat and spice to it, and is great for making BBQ items on the grill, in a crock pot or for dipping.
- 1 cup Jack Daniel’s Honey Whiskey
- 1 cup tomato paste
- ½ cup dark brown sugar
- ¼ cup vinegar (non malted, not apple just the regular stuff)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup Franks Redhot Sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine and simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes stirring often until a BBQ sauce like consistency, then set to cool. makes about 3 cups.
Decided I’d try my hand at this, hopefully you enjoy it.
My grandfather was a giant if he was five feet. He was the greatest man I knew, and shaped the way I viewed the world and my self so very profoundly. Growing up, my father pretty much walked away from our family. This left my grandfather as the sold male role-model for what were very much my hardest years.
He was an old school Italian man, right off the boat before WWII. He worked hard to provide for his family, and lived by a set of very “old world” social rules. During WWII he was enlisted as MP, but instead of going overseas he was given the option to stay home and instead work MP duties in the city of Buffalo. He did this for the duration of the war. He was blessed by the birth of four daughters. While he loved my mother and aunts dearly, he still always longed for a son. I was the first male in the family born in the United States, and my grandfather treated me as if I was his son rather than grandson.
Site has been a bit quiet, but I find myself wanting to write more. Not just the items of the story I’ve been working on, I’ll still be working on that, but I want to participate in some things like the Blog Azeroth shared topics and to give my head-space some personal room in written word. Problem is those posts don’t fit on any of the other sites I write for. So I’m going to be posting them here when I can, among the fiction pieces and random ideas that will grace these few pixels. Also I’ll be looking for some new artwork for my corner shot here on the site, so if you’re interested in doing something for it, feel free to email me, I might just hold a contest and give away an in game pet to whoever wins.
