New website - new blog!

The website was in dire need of an update (about 12 years old) and I didn't want to completely say goodbye to the old "news" page with all the updates, so here they are in a kind of archive-y format.  Unfortunately, there aren't any dates and you may find a few broken links - a few of the many problems with the old blog.  Note that most of my posts these days are in reference to The Hunted, which you can find here.

The Hunted is still growing strong with all-new episodes, affiliates, and contests.  For more info, check out
