As predicted, this week is sucking badly! See prior post for more detail. Here I had all evening to do something productive and no real energy to do anything more than web/usenet skimming and listening to music. But anyway, I have two points to make:
Uno. UE08 is ready to rock. I myself am not ready to rock. But, at least I’m happy knowing that I can dive headfirst into that bastard once I am. It’s going to be more like a Sailor Nothing episode — a collage of snippets from diaries, journals, some poems, and actual prose that’s non-linear in time. I was thinking “Do I really wanna do an SN gimmick style for a UE episode?” and thought “Hell yeah I do, since it fits this particular episode to a T, so why limit myself?” and thus.
So, once my mojo returns, I think I can lick this one easier than I did UE07. (I still can’t think of a good way to end UE07, for instance. I might even start UE08 before I finish UE07. It’s crazy, I tell you!) I have plans to make UE09 and UE10 more comedic and wacky and romantic in nature, to balance out the seriousness in UE07 and UE08. How many more times can I acronym episodes? UEUEUEUEUE. Golly.
Deux. Okay, I’ve Googled, Kazaa‘d, I’ve read message boards… and gotten zilch. I missed the boat on the massive post to a.b.emulation.misc. So, I throw it open to the horde… a million golden sheckles and/or an autographed copy of my music or anything you want in exchange for a Daphne-compatible MPEG of the “Cliff Hanger” laserdisc game. I have Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace already (legally, too) but Cliff… eludes me. Help me, Obi-fans, you’re my only hope.
Trois. I’ve been pondering doing custom mood icons based on this little guy, but I have no sprite animation skeelz. Anyone wanna volunteer?
