Raptor's Roamings

I've been planning on blogging about my adventures studying in Europe for some time, but only just now got around to setting up a dedicated blog for the task. It's called Raptor's Roamings, and you can check it out here.


Seven days and counting until I leave! Actually, more like six now! Can't wait!

Congratulations Larry Correia!

I can't seem to stop raving about Larry Correia's novel, Monster Hunter International. It's just that good!

If you haven't gotten your hands on a copy yet, then stop reading the blog, shut down your computer, go out to your local bookstore, and buy a copy. Do it right now.

Okay, you did what I said and bought a copy? Good.

Now, before I get sidetracked by making threats to the people who didn't do what I say (I'll find you guys, btw ;-) ), I want to give a hearty congratulations to Larry: MHI has done so well sales-wise - it's currently sold out at Amazon (where it's rated 64th in the Horror genre) - that Baen Books, the publisher, has apparently decided to pick up even more of Larry's books, including MHI's sequel: Monster Hunter Vendetta as well as several other non-MHI books.

Congrats, Larry. Here's wishing you a long and successful career as a writer.

T-Minus 8 Days And Counting

Sorry that posting has been so light as of late. I'll be leaving for Alderson-Broaddus College in eight days for orientation, and flying out to Austria two days after that. But before that, I've still got a few things that need to be squared away, so I haven't really had time to update.

Anyway, I'll be posting pictures of my travels across Europe up once I get over there. Not sure at this point if I'm going to create a dedicated blog for the pics or just post them on this blog, but I'll let y'all know either way.

T-Minus 8 days and counting, people! Can't wait!

MMM.... Cheeeeeseburgers..... *drool*

Came across this site on the interwebz today that I thought y'all might like.

Before I post the link, however, I must warn any vegetarians or vegans who might stumble across this: DO NOT CLICK ON THE HYPERLINK! YOU WILL BE HORRIBLY OFFENDED BY IT!!!!!

Okay, now that that's all taken care off, the rest of you can go ahead and visit The Cheese & Burger Society, and their 30 different mouthwatering cheeseburger recipes. Here's one example:

Okay, the screencap isn't working for some reason, but the site looks normal.

Personally, I'm likin' The Highwayman and The Mama Mia, but I'll probably wind up trying them all at some point.

Thanks to George "The Ogre" Hill over at for finding this.

Giant Waterslide Jump

It pretty much goes without saying that those guys are 100% certifiably crazy. Can I try?

Queen... Gregorian Style?

Found this randomly online today (one of the few videos I don't shamelessly ripoff of borrow from another site or blog)

We Are The Champions as sung by a group of Gregorian Monks.

Yes, you read that right. Aparently, these guys are called The Chant Masters, and they've got a whole album of Queen covers. Yeah, Another One Bites the Dust and Bohemian Rhapsody sound really weird when sang like this... but I still kinda like it.
