Tomippen is a twentysomething semi-urban geek rifling through the internet for interesting odds and ends to squirrel away for the coming winter. He studied History at UVic in Victoria, BC. When he isn't playing video games, he's reading. Or talking about Lord of the Rings. Or eating. He also runs another blog at bythegods.net
