Random tidbits and notes on my projects and my life in general follow.
The thread below labelled UltraStress now has a link from the comments to the final episode of BoT. BoT is an Impromanga I helped develop which never got ended; the reasons why and the script of the ending are in there.
Seems damn near everybody I know is going to ACen other than myself. It can’t be helped; I don’t have the money to make the trip, and the accommodations for my disability would be awful considering I’d have to fly all my gear out there with me. I’m not like the average Otaku who can carpool there, sleep on the floor, and subsist on candy bars. (Maybe the latter..) I’m actually not upset about missing ACen; I go to Otakon each year and that kicks ass in its own right. It’s a shame I can’t meet more impropeople, but best not to dwell on it.
UltraRage Eta is coming along. I have plenty of time so I’m not breaking my back trying to get it done.. which is good, because the first fight and backstage scenes have been pretty awkward. Shingo, Duo, and this new guy I’m writing for all kind of have the same cookie cutter Nice Guy personality, and that’s making ’em hard to handle…
Got The Sims: House Party. Game still isn’t very satisfying, even with both expansion packs. I love designing houses, but the constant battle to fill those damn meters is annoying, especially since your sim too too stupid to do it properly hirself. You know, I was a huge fan of Little Computer People’s Research Project back in the Apple //c days, but the LCPs at least could take care of their own needs if you stocked their kitchen and played the occasional game of cards with them… The Sims are morons and it’s more a game of time management and resource allocation than a fun life simulator. If I wanted to sort out a busy day to day work life, I’d sort out my own.
(I’m gonna rant about games in my next post. I figure they oughtta be seperate.)
Invited the guys over for Smackdown last night. Unfortunately, UPN20 decided to be on the fritz. We watched Hellraiser instead and MST3K’d it to pieces, wai.
But despite seeing my friends a lot and IRCing to #improfanfic, I’ve felt pretty disconnected socially. I don’t know why, but it’s like there’s not much in my life right now other than writing and television. Writing is harder than it looks and the WWF has been dull and plodding and almost depressing; there’s so much potential there being wasted and misused, and it’s frustrating for me as a fan to see the same crap week in and week out when they USED to be good. So, that doesn’t help my mood any, either.
This weekend I have no major parties or events, so maybe I’ll get to relax freestyle. I hope so.
Finally, I’d like to apologize for Mads; I got your kickass Cobalt fanart but I haven’t had time to thumbnail it and post it. If folks want to see it, browse the directory here.
