Gizmodo reports on the Monarch speaker system:

From General interwebs

Do you see it? Of course you do! The wooden wings and slim black body of the Monarch Loudspeaker makes the whole get up look like a butterfly.

Like hell it does. That monstrosity looks like nothing more than an Elder Thing. You buy what you want. But when your dogs start yelping and thrashing psychotically in a mad attempt to dismember your speakers, and you come home to find all your electronics and roommates carefully dismantled on the floor--their parts painstakingly inventoried in an arcane, precise hand--and a peculiar, heavy odor hanging hatefully in the air, don't say I didn't warn you.


  1. Should go well between the Nordic-Trak and the Bow-Flex...
    But yeh they don't need stands, they should be mounted by a pin that goes straight through them into the wall.

  2. That's a fantastic idea. I almost want a pair now.


    SAN checks for all

  4. I think filk carries a stiff penalty even if you make the check...

  5. Filk is occasionally its own penalty. And my SAN check bounced long ago.

    (For example, I have dueling filkish earworks right now, and I don't even like one of them)

  6. And my SAN check bounced long ago.

    This has the sound of a hoary gaming joke that everybody's heard, but it's new to me. I'm definitely going to be repeating it until my players start to lose RL SAN.
