I won’t get preachy here other than to say stay informed, follow the best practices, and wash your damn hands.Β  I have posted plenty of that on Facebook.

Social Distancing Maze

Print, solve, & re-post!

Print it & complete with a pen, pencil, crayon, marker, or whatever.Β  Then take a photo & post it on your favorite social media site, and tag me; @AiXeLsyD13 (Twitter & Instagram)

You can even download it & use a note app or one like PicsArt on your phone to complete the maze, then share it too.Β  Share it on Pinterest.Β  Lots of people are looking for stuff to do right now.Β  I’d love to see how far this (or any of my mazes) can go.

Maze Mugs? A-Maze Mugs? a-MAZE-ing Socks?


Did you see the first post and the last post about the maze mugs?Β  Mike has been doing some fun stuff, and I have (very slowly) been working on mazes for the box.Β  Also, Mike posted some fun stuff:

Check out this packaging!

More than one maze per mug so you don’t get bored!

So, what do you think? Want to see mazes on anything else? Want them solvable? Like that packaging or love it? Check out Mike’s other stuff on Instagram!Β  He has been making some killer skateboard decks and a topical T-shirt.

I won’t get into the COVID-19 / Novel Coronavirus outbreak here, but if you’re bored in quarantine… remember you can do all of my mazes.Β  It’d be cool if you finished one, posted on the social media platform of your choice & tagged me.

I need to put a maze on a guitar. I need to update photos of my collection. I want to catalog them here since the sites I have found to do it don’t really suit my needs. Add that to the endless list of unnecessary projects to be completed “someday.”

MazeMugs? A-Maze Mug? Something else? Ci3 & I need your feedback.


Mike Copen of Ci3 Sublimation had the idea to put one of my mazes on to a mug, and I agreed that it would indeed be fun. We need your feedback to help make this something that people may be interested in buying?

Here are some images that Mike worked up;

We have gotten some great feedback so far, and I dig it!

I really appreciate Mike helping take my mazes to something other than doodles on paper piling up here at the house, or floating out there in the cyberspace ether unnoticed.Β  Ha ha.Β  I am unable to determine the correct path on how to go about making a book and if there would even be an audience for just mazes.Β  I’m really not into making a theme other than “here are some mazes” outside the occasional inspiration for something else that’s goofy.Β  (Or on something that’s goofy.)

Patience is a virtue. Totino’s pushes the boundaries of scientific research thanks to me.


arrange the rolls in a circle on a plate

“arrange the rolls in a circle on a plate”

Oh man.Β  Does anyone remember my W(aL)D email shenanigans from a decade ago?

One such adventure was writing to Totino’s to ask if they had recommendations for microwaving more than 6 at a time.Β  They wrote back.Β  I asked them if I needed to arrange the rolls like wagon wheel spokes or like wagons on the Oregon Trail circling for protection.Β  I even got some 35Β’ coupons that I considered as a research grant.

Have you noticed pizza roll cooking instructions lately?

I won! Information for the people! Research to benefit the masses!

Really though.Β  This brings up a new series of questions.

When did just arranging in “a single layer become” acceptable?Β  Who does Totino’s think they are discarding the time-honored tradition of microwaving things in a circle?Β  Did we learn nothing from our ancestors at Stonehenge?Β  Did they consult the Softstix team over at SuperPretzel, or just roll forward (pun still intended) with wild abandon?Β  How do you summon the flavor spirits without the ceremonial circle?

Has the Fibonacci spiral ever been tested as a cooking pattern?Β  Can Ci3 make me a plate specifically for microwaving pizza rolls and little cheese-filled pretzels with the Fibonacci spiral on it?

Can mazes be the next thing?


I don’t have a theme.Β  I don’t generally draw cartoons or pictures with my mazes.Β  Can just plain mazes be a thing, like adult coloring books?Β  There are a ton of neat maze creators that I follow on Instagram or Twitter or wherever.Β  Mine are probably the most boring.Β  Someone used to solve them by blacking in everything from the dead ends back to an open end, leaving only the “good” path open.Β  That seems like it would be relaxing.

Another maze.  Is this one boring?  Send me a solution.
