Here’s to You, Brother Hasher

Ian Comyn, better known to us as Ian Cumming, has gone to hash with G. I met Ian in Rotorua at InterHash 1994 and learned a song or two at his feet. He was a hash mentor to many. He will be sorely missed and always well remembered.

Origins of On On?

Where does “On On” come from? Who knows? The only thing I’m fairly certain of is that it didn’t come from hashing.

A few years ago I got into an argument with another hasher. He insisted it was a hasher who first came up with the “Drinking Club with a Running Problem” motto, sometime in [...]

A Hasher Memorial

When I became a mail-order minister several years ago and started officiating hash weddings, I knew the day would come I’d be asked to do a funeral. That day is here. A friend is setting up a memorial for C____, a local hasher who recently took her life, and she’s asked me to officiate.

In my previous post, I expressed the wish she’d reached out [...]

Know: I used the word twice, each time carelessly. We (Pick’n’Flick and [...]

Links Updated

I updated the Half-MInd Links page today after a hash vendor canceled an order for hash fish appliqués. He’s still advertising them on his website, but apparently doesn’t really have any and can’t be bothered to keep his site up to date.

I apologize to anyone who went to that vendor via my site and [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 6/21/15

This’ll be a short bash trash. Your hash scribe rode only a short portion of the trail, this being one of the hottest days we’ve experienced this summer. Our hares, Arthur Gash and Gotta Fuck Me to Find Out, said they really didn’t expect anyone to show up at the car park at Camino de [...]
