"Where the Meat Comes From" started out as a web-zine with all sorts of exciting content planned. It didn't work out exactly like that. That's where I came in. And then I let it grow dormant and wither on the vast intervine, as I'd found myself writing a great deal more words for a living, more than willing to leave these digital pages to the swirling worldwide wind.
Whenever you find yourself wanting to ask whether something is pretentious, the answer is automatically yes. But I'm going to point out some irony here, anyway. Working on League of Legends with a badass team surrounded by somehow-impossibly-even-more badass Rioters drives me to write even more on the side.
TL;DR: I'm picking this back up again from time to time. Short stories, rants, eponymous #benfacts, assorted other ramblings, musings and things of that ilk.
Legacy stuff to explain: The site tried to be all SE-optimized with almost-nearly clever tags and sub-blog titles. I've left the descriptions as they were. I've also left the link to an embarrassingly bad self-published novel. Please don't buy it. I have no idea if I'd even get paid at this point, and you can buy at least three sodas at the office for the price of the book.
A Double, Neat -- Clever musings on news stories that are making the internet rounds, also includes sports and random information that doesn't fit anywhere else.
A Single Shot, No Chaser -- Writing hints, tips, strategies, essays, and short stories. In short, anything that involves putting pen to paper.
A Full Mug of Mead -- Content surrounding League of Legends. -- In my pre-Riot days as mere aficionado, I'd noticed a severe lack in written, theoretical content around LoL (thanks Cloth5 et al for doing an amazing job of filling in that gap one terrible amateur player couldn't manage to). Like most of my stuff on the site, it's very nearly embarrassing quality, but I've left it up for perusal and mockery.
