EVAN: I have a dream. That one day this blog will rise up and establish a regular schedule. From that point on each weekday will have its own writer, and all five will be equal. Today, friends, we grow one step closer to that dream becoming a reality.
Joining us officially as of this week is Stew, who both Gordon and I attended college with. He’s also left a grand total of 47 comments on this blog, so you know he is a person with thoughts to share and things to say. Honestly, I could go on, so let’s just start things off already.
Similar to our introduction of Kat two years ago [has it really been that long?] each of the CWR regulars will be asking Stew four questions apiece, ending with the chance for him to throw a couple of his own at each of us.

KAT: My first question for you is, what makes you want to write for the blog?
EVAN: Wow, Kat, way to take my first question. And now I regret my decision.
STEW: Too slow, Evan.
KAT: Sorry, but you guys wanted me to go first, so…
STEW: Well, I’ve been a pretty avid reader of CWR since it first started. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of topics that you guys cover. But I’ve been harassing Evan to cover more science-y topics for ages now, and apparently this is the best way to make that happen.
EVAN: Favourite Lovecraft-themed alcoholic beverage?
STEW: Narragansett Lovecraft Honey Ale, both because it is delicious, and because I don’t think anything else fits the category.
GORDON: Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?
STEW: Nah, I love sitting on the fence.
KAT: Would you consider yourself a feminist and/or feminist ally?
KAT: I feel a little bit like we are browbeating you right now, haha.
EVAN: If his brow makes it out in one piece we will have failed in our mission.
STEW: Generally, brows should be in two pieces anyway. Mine is no exception. Continue reading →
