Luxembourg’s Tabletop Day


A week after the hugely successful, partly devoted to gaming, LuxCon, a group of gamers gathered in the small town of Syren, home fo one of the gaming clubs. Around 30 people in total partook in the vast offering of games available, talked, laughed and generally had a great time with games.

Among the games played were: Smallworld, Rampage, Wrath of Ashardalon, Gloom, Grave Robbers from Outer Space, HeroQuest, Munchkin Quest, Cate Panic, Coup, and Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures.

Early in the afternoon.

Wrath of Ashardalon in progress.

One of the reasons why the ‘Panic’ in the title is deserved.

Relief after we beat Castle Panic.

The City before…

… and after the monsters had a go at it.

Trying to get our heads around Grave Robbers From Outer Space.

Gloom clearly needs the gestures to be fully appreciated.



The city of Boston is soon going to receive one of the most awesome statues we’ve ever seen. After a lengthy review process, professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak has just been chosen to create a sculpture honoring Edgar Allan Poe, one of literature’s most unforgettable and influential authors and poets. Rocknak was selected from a field of 266 artist from 42 states and 13 countries, each of whom submitted proposals for the Edgar Allan Poe Square Public Art Project.

Rocknak’s appropriately dramatic and haunting sculpture will be called Poe Returning to Boston:

“I propose to cast a life-size figure of Poe in bronze. Just off the train, the figure would be walking south towards his place of birth, where his mother and father once lived. Poe, with a trunk full of ideas—and worldwide success—is finally coming home.”

"His expression is complex. He is determined and his stride is decisive. His face reflects a mixture of pain, anger and sadness, and from some angles, a subtle sense of hope. As he walks towards Carver Street, he openly dismisses what is behind him with his left hand; the Frogpondians to the north. Boston is not claiming Poe, Poe is claiming Boston. To punctuate this, he leaves a literal paper trail behind him. He has not only left his mark on the world, he has left it on the city of his birth. His ideas are jumping off the page and cascading out of his trunk; a heart lies just behind him, and an oversized Raven explodes to the south. The Raven, which has become symbolic of Poe’s brooding creative spirit, visually reflects Poe; his coat mimics the raven’s wing, and, like a bird, Poe is slightly pigeon-toed. They are one, heading up-wind towards their final resting place."

The photos seen here show the final design model, which was made of clay. The real Poe Returning to Boston will be unveiled on October 4, 2014, three days before the 165th anniversary of Poe’s untimely death. Poe and his raven will haunt the corner of Boylston Street and Charles Street South, a location dubbed Edgar Allan Poe Square during bicentennial celebrations in 2009, just two blocks north of the writer’s actual birthplace.

As lifelong fans of Poe, we’re both thrilled and a little envious. We’ll simply have to add this to our sightseeing list the next time we’re in Boston.

David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”


Happy 50th Birthday, Dana Katherine Scully! (February 23rd, 1964)

"Time passes in moments… moments which, rushing past, define the path of a life, just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen, to consider whether the path we take in life is our own making, or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed. But what if we could stop, pause to take stock of each precious moment before it passes? Might we then see the endless forks in the road that have shaped a life? And, seeing those choices, choose another path?"
