So, hey guys. I’m giving you the heads up that during this week, I’ll be re-blogging from other sites that I enjoy (and that I think you would enjoy reading and subscribing to). I’m doing this because I’ve realized that I am running short of time to simply do things. I have a couple of deadlines coming up. And they’re both self-inflicted.
You may or may not know that I’m going to be heading to SoDak Con this weekend in Rapid City, SD. I’ve been invited as a guest to the con to talk about creating a game. Yes, I created a game last year. I was freshly laid-off from my engineering job, and I wanted to spend my time doing something other than feeling sorry for myself.
My friends who run SoDak Con wanted me to talk about the process of making a game, and gave me a space to tell people about the process. I’ve had months and months to prepare for this talk/discussion.
So I should probably start preparing.
At the same time, I need to prepare for an episode of Freddy’s Fan Fiction. I will be doing a live episode at SoDak Con. It’s not like I have to do a lot of preparation, but I want it to be at least a bit entertaining. Never done anything like this before. I will be filming and recording the whole show, so you should be able to see it next week.
All of that on top of long-ass days at work and late-evening scheduled gaming sessions with my friends makes for almost no time to get anything else done. So I apologize to anyone looking for original content this week. To be fair, you’ll be getting original content. Just not from me.
To begin with, I’ll reblog a post from one of my favorite authors, Chuck Wendig. He just watched the Man of Steel in the theater and he gave it a review. I haven’t watched the movie yet, and I’m sure I will eventually. I just like what Chuck says and how he says it. Here is an excerpt from his post, HOLY SHITCRAP THIS MOVIE THEATER IS TOO FUCKING LOUD:
I WENT TO THE MOVIE THEATER AND I SAW MAN OF STEEL AND THE MOVIE WAS VERY FUCKING LOUD. IT WAS, YOU MIGHT EVEN SAY, “SUPER” LOUD. HA HA HA OW.
I FEEL LIKE I JUST SPENT TWO AND A HALF HOURS LETTING SOME DUDE YELL IN MY EARS AND PUNCH ME IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD
DID A GRENADE JUST GO OFF
MY EARS ARE RINGING
So go read Chuck’s blog. Read his books. (Seriously, read his books. He writes amazing stuff)
Hope y’all have a good week!
I HAVE PTSD NOW
