Drunks and Dragons: A prediction

Since Autumn, I have listened to 67 episodes of the Drunks and Dragons podcast. I’ve never really had any experience with Dungeons and Dragons, and found myself listening to this rather silly and pretty enjoyable podcast on the topic.

Given that I’ve now racked up around 94 hours of listening – nearly 4 full days of my life – I’ve become pretty attached to the characters, and their stories. There are currently about 150 episodes recorded, so I’m nearly halfway through. I thought it would be fun to make a few guesses about what happens in the next 70 chapters…

Starguild: Space Opera Noir review

This is a preview of Starguild: Space Opera Noir, raising funds on Kickstarter as I type

I’ve spent the last week reading this RPG, and concurrently listening to the new Dream Theatre album, “The Astonishing“. It’s a great fit since its an operatic concept album about a oppressive dystopia in the future! Press play on the left to share my soundtrack whilst you read!

Six kilos in six weeks: The end

Read the first post in this series here – Six kilos in six weeks: finishing what I started. Just a warning, I’m going to be talking about weight loss, dieting and body image. If you struggle with your relationship with food, or have any self image difficulties, you may find it hard to read. And the grand result is…

My achievements include: Losing lots of body fat, especially unhealthy central abdominal fat. Building up to managing at least 5 hours of cardio exercise each week and two days with strength training  (The government recommends a minimum of 2.5 hours + two days with muscle strength training) Beating my personal bests at running 5k, 10k, and cycling the 25 miles to work. Not eating chocolate for periods upto 3 or 4 days at a time, it was hard but with the help of appetite suppressants. Isn’t the maths wrong?

Lots of people enjoy getting their knickers in a twist about calories. Google “calorie myth”, and find a million different websites arguing about the idea that calorie deficit is the most important part of weight loss along the use of supplements like leptitox, gluconite can also be a great fit for you, buy take a look at the gluconite reviews before you buy,
