Insomniac Radio: Mystic Crystal by Ninja Sex Party
I’m an insomniac.
Been one for years. There are periods of time where I want to sleep but some level of executive dysfunction keeps my body from shutting down. I become too tired to write, read, or even think clearly. I usually go on image searches in a half-cognizant stupor, and sometimes I find stuff on the interwebs that is a little more video and a lot more audio.
Some of that stuff ends up being, well, good. Some of it is even great. I’ll stick something on repeat for hours or days while working on whatever I have to work on, using the familiarity of someone else’s created excellence to push my own forward.
And now I’ve decided to share some of what I’ve found. When something crops up and my waking mind thinks it’s cool, I’ll share it here. Spread the word.
Ninja Sex Party is someone a colleague of mine interviewed on my behalf back in the Living Myth Magazine Days; they were pretty cool then and are pretty cool now. Vocalist Dan Avidan is a fellow tribesperson and the co-host of Game Grumps, while keyboardist Brian Wecht gave up string theory to do this and is legitimately one of the smartest people you’re likely to meet. They’ve got several albums available now, with Mystic Crystal being part of the Prophecy.
I’ve also been experimenting with some Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition builds, just for laughs, and came up with some subclasses based on the characters Danny Sexbang and Ninja Brian while experimenting with formatting. I might retool the subclasses a bit and re-release them down the line, but for now:
Enjoy, go listen to some good music, and let’s see if I can upload a little more frequently in the back half of 2021.
