My Life in 2019: A Personal Journey

2019 A Personal Journey of Agent Palmer

It’s the journey, right? Tony Stark said that “part of the journey is the end” in one of this year’s biggest movies, but while 2019 is coming to an end, my journey is still in progress. As all of yours are, to one extent or another.

But this hasn’t been the easiest year for me professionally, while personally, I’ve done some of my best work. That dichotomy has been hard to deal with at times. And as such, I’ve spent more time consuming media on the small screen, the big screen, and in written form to see what might help me in my own journey.

Magic: The Gathering’s Mythic Invitational Was Spectacular

Magic the Gathering Arena Mythic Invitational

This past weekend Magic The Gathering’s Mythic Invitational at PAX East was the siren’s call… Magic: The Gathering is aiming to be an esports powerhouse. With $1,000,000 Prize Pool and 64 invitees ranging from content streamers on Twitch, Magic Pro League Players, and the top 8 from Magic: The Gathering Arena, along with streaming the whole tournament across four days on Twitch, this is not a moment to be taken lightly.

Now, I’m not new to Magic, but I am new to Magic Arena. I’ve only been playing online for a few months, due to the fact that I once tried Magic Online and it felt like a more expansive version of Shandalar.

Making Time for Friends: A Geekin’ Weekend

From the desk of Agent Palmer

Occasionally, I get together with a good friend of mine and we “geek out” for the weekend. And this past weekend was one of those times.

It was filled with movies, conversation, sport, and some gaming. It had it all, and even encompassed a few seasons due to some odd weather, so I’ve decided to recap it.

He came down to visit on Friday night and we knocked out some Science Fiction right off the bat. He hadn’t yet seen Valerian, and I own it, so I introduced it to him. Then on Saturday we saw an early showing of Black Panther.

Old School Magic

Old School Magic: Remembering Duelist Magazine

Old School Magic: Remembering Duelist Magazine

Remember Duelist the short-lived Wizards of the Coast magazine that was mainly focused on Magic: The Gathering? Yes, back in the day, I was a subscriber. And while the magazine ceases to exist, almost 20 years after it’s demise I feel it’s time to look back.
