Journal of the Emerald Specter 77: Life Strikes Back

Things are not going as well as planned… hell, I can’t even plan at this point. When life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade. Unfortunately, I have no water or sugar, so I’d just be squirting sour juice into my eyes and that’s already what it feels like, so I’m not really digging […]

Update on the Emerald Specter Chess Club

How are things? They are going swimmingly! There are a couple of items, though. First, while I was initially going to stick to four bashos this year (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn), the tournament is going so well that I’m going to up this to the actual sumo-esq schedule. There is no reason we shouldn’t […]

Journal of the Emerald Specter 73: What’s Coming in 2018?

As you read these words, it is my birthday. I decided to take a look at what is supposed to happen with me, things, and all the other stuff in 2018. That was a terribly put together sentence. The Emerald Specter 2018 Winter Basho is fully underway and things are flowing way better than I […]
