The result of an impulse buy. This is why I shouldn’t be allowed in crafts stores.
Happy Birthday to Wil Wheaton! Turns out Wil is a fan of the original Spaceward Ho! We decided to add in a special star name, Sparks McGee and then also a special Sparks McGee styled hat designed by Paul Campbell. Be sure to play the game on Wil’s birthday in order to see the special hat. It is currently available in Google Play and iOS coming soon.
Happy birthday Wil! (Don’t be a dick y’all!)
I got a course you can plot!
Ready for day one as Sparks McGee! Going to be in line for Sherlock :)
They asked for my favourite fictional character and my favourite food (bonus if they’re in the same picture).
Posting this in case someone might be interested: the infamous rainbow sweater of Wesley Crusher/Sparks McGee (I’m still searching for a cowboy hat to complete the ensemble)!
(Also, I just unlocked the QR code maker in ACNL so I’ll probably post more designs as the days go on! I’ll tag them on my blog as #acnl skyway designs, and also under the generic tags of #acnl and #animal crossing.)
I needed a break and a laugh. So I made a Sparks McGee windsock.
I know I initially said I wouldn’t do this, but when I saw the name was actually available I couldn’t help but give in to temptation. Sorry Wil, but Sparks McGee is now wandering the galaxies of Star Trek Online aboard the U.S.S. Trans Am…..
I just realized I had been remiss in posting about this label and homebrew I made. Thankfully, I was reminded that more Sparks McGee is always a good thing. Also, my inspiration for the label came from here (thanks Wil!).
I created this recipe over the winter as a pure mad science experiment in brewing. I was curious to see what an oaked IPA - a dark IPA, or what is now known as the American-Style Black Ale - would be like. The short answer, AMAZESAUCE.
I was aiming for something that had that nice citrus hop profile but with the fantastic vanilla overtones you get from oaking. I think I hit the mark pretty well. However, next time I think I’m going to use oak cubes instead of chips to maximize the vanilla without as much woodiness. We put this brew directly into keg (our first kegged brew, actually) and I was surprised by how well it aged. Normally the hoppy brews don’t age so well.
For those interested, the current recipe is over at BrewToad. This has quickly become one of our favorite recipies and we have plans to brew it again in the very near future.
