This is the official blog of indie author / adventure writer Andy R. Bunch, author of the fantasy book, "Suffering Rancor." As always, I'll post funny or amazing things I find in my travels or from poking around online. This is a great place to kick back and relax a bit. You may note that I’m not too clean or too dirty.

I'm honest, creative, loyal, and noble. I love taking things apart and using them for purposes that they weren't meant for. As a result I'm drawn to myth busters, http://www.instructables.com/, and steam punk.
I also love adventure, travel, and learning new things.
