I’m a dude that enjoys so many different things and stuffs:
Comics: Spider-Man, Secret Wars (THE ORIGINAL ONES), Avengers, Alpha Flight, Venom, Iron Man, and many, many, many more.
Dungeons & Dragons: I grew up with this stuff as a kid and then adulting happened. We’ve gotten back into the swing of things over the last two years and I’m really enjoying the whole 5e revamp.
Physics & Space: I was *this* close to pursuing my dream of becoming an astrophysicist. For now, I try to keep up with news about space, physics research, exo-planets, and stellar properties. Now you know why the background of this site is the remnants of supernova 1987a.
TV / Movies: Star Trek, Survivor, Farscape, The Fifth Element, The Sopranos, Seinfeld, and many more
Video Games: World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo 3, The Sims (any of them), Star Control 2, Master of Orion 2, Civilization (any), Sim City (any)
I also love simulators or writing simulation scripts (see my HockeySim project as an example).
I also love the chaos of true randomization (see my randomization scripts for D&D and Warcraft).
I have a stutter. Sometimes it’s barely noticeable, other times I can’t even say my own name. It’s brutal. Despite this limitation, or rather in spite of it, I really enjoy podcasting and having my voice heard. Lord help us all if I had no stutter! Here are a few podcasts that you can find me on a regular basis (or even semi-regular basis or even as the occasional guest).
The Sundering: I’ve been fortunate to have been invited to this show as a guest a number of times. It is most certainly Not-Safe-For-Work-or-Kids, but we have a grand ol’ time. I’ve usually been drinking when I appear here, so you should get the general idea that things get raucous. Site: TheSundering.net.
WoW Challenges Podcast: This World of Warcraft podcast was my brain-child. I was lucky to have had such a wonderful co-host as Leeta. While I’m no longer on the show (see below), this podcast and the community are very important to me. Site: WoWChallenges.com. My final episode as a co-host had me choked up for sure.
I’m also the guy that was behind the WoW Challenges site. I stepped up to the plate when the community’s website went MIA and augmented the Ironman challenge to track many different variations, including Teams!
In June 2019, I made my final farewell (Letter & podcast), I was more than thrilled to be allowed to return as a third “Elder” to continue to help WoW Challenges where I could. Why I was able to return? You can read about it in This Post.
This fantasy hockey simulator has been coded by me and went live around 2006. It’s been a pretty big part of my life for the last 15 years but due to my health issues, I’m not able to give it the attention it needs. We’re currently in “maintenance mode” until I can find an appropriate buyer. If you are interested in purchasing the simulator, please contact me. Serious Inquiries Only.
The Whitby Report
I wrote a daily blog last year about the happenings in my super awesome Town of Whitby. I love Whitby but writing this on a daily basis became more and more difficult as my time demands increased. You can find a list of all The Whitby Report posts here: https://stonegrasp.com/?cat=12
Need to reach me privately? Okie dokie. Here are the best methods:
Alternatively, you can also DM me through these but a fair warning to all of you: I don’t really check Twitch DMs and for BNet, you’ll need to message me somewhere else first before trying to add me as a friend.
Battle.Net: Stone#1646 (don’t friend me unless I know you. Just shoot me a message before-hand and we should be all good).
