Wizards of the Coast SRD 5.1

Wizards of the coast managed to make a bunch of D&D fans angry with the modifications they were wanting to make to the OGL. But as the dust from the backlash settled they made a move that should be better for the D&D community as a whole.

Moving forward the SRD will be released under a Creative Commons License, this move cannot be taken back later and all of the SRDs released under this will be available for others to use as they please.


Steven Crowder vs Big Con

I have flipped my opinion multiples times on this topic. After hearing from everyone involved and several people not involved. I have ended with the opinion that each side in this very public argument are fighting for the same things with similar views but are so focused on their way of doing it that they are not able to clearly see the other side.

Having said that I have to side with Steven. I don't believe that Jeremy Boring is attempting to exploit The Daily Wire hosts, but the contracts proposed could be exploited by someone with fewer scruples of making sure people are fairly treated when they are contributing to moving the company forward.


Red Flag Job Offers

People who have skills in work that is artistic or less physical will get offers from people hoping to get something for nothing. I have formed a series of rules for spotting and dealing with those types of offers for full-time work or "side gigs".

  1. Cash or Nothing
  2. Offer must be from the person able to make the offer
  3. Offer and contract in-hand before the work is started


Review Dune 2021

If you are a fan of sci-fi you need to watch the new Dune. The first installment came out in 2021 and is a great movie with the second installment due to release in November of 2023.

This version fixes the pacing of the original and does a better job of showing what is happening instead of narrating the story for the viewer.

I give it a 9/10
