WRC – My Perfect Respite

Right at the most distant end of the frayed rope that is my peripatetic life, when I was – oh – 3 or 4, resides one of my earliest memories. Sitting between my parents in a rally crew van, hurtling through a stage looking for a family friend and rally driver, Ian. He hadn’t turned…

Games Will Save Me Today

Not the most positive day… View this post on Instagram A post shared by Christi MacPherson (@pixelatedbadger)

Uncertain(ty) Principles.

As I look on from across the Atlantic, I wonder how it will feel in – oh – about 3 (ish) hours from writing this, when the US presidential inauguration is underway. Will it feel as wonderful as I hope? Even as someone who’ll have to deal with the influence that the outgoing demagogic narcissist…

VR Workout 2 – Pistol Whip

Just a basic record post today. Posted this up on the gaming podcast twitter feed too, so you can hear me puffing away on video if you really want to. It felt a lot easier just one day on. I’ll be enforcing rest days even if I feel ok, just because my underlying health issues…

VR Workout 1 – Pistol Whip

Hi! Been a while. Gonna start writing again, because y’know, the L word. Rhymes with “walk down”. Anyway.

Walk 1 again

I’m starting the daily walk again. Hopefully this time I’ll keep it going. Things are stressful now. Not least because this brexit nonsense is terrifying. Anyway, here’s a picture that I made on the journey.

Book 2 / 52books

I squeezed this one in today, the last day of week 2. It’s a basic single signature with cover, but it’s a variation from Bound that I’d skipped. I modified it slightly. Considerably increasing the page count in particular. I’m fairly pleased because it still worked, which means I’m beginning to understand how to tweak…

Book 1 / 52Books

On the run-up to and right through the holidays, I worked through a fantastic book on bookbinding called Bound. It takes you through simple structures and works up to more complex and interesting ones. I’d long been interested in bookbinding, having been taught a little bit about it at uni in the 90s. I didn’t…

Walk 1

So a lot has happened since my last post. Arguably the positive and negative extremes of what life can throw at you. I’ll write about it all in turn soon. For now, I’m still processing much of it, but one thing I’ve determined to do in the aftermath is at least get out and walk…
