UtD - Bioshock: Rapture

  Episode 3 is up!  This week I dive underwater for John Shirley's Prequel to the Bioshock Franchise!

And thus uploaded, i feel happy fleeing up north to my friends cottage for a few days.  i'll try to have something quick up next week, maybe talking about books in general or my reading list.  dunno.  something a minute long without much cutting.  maybe a quick review of something that i don't want to bore people with.

And now to fold laundry.  I think that's all for the moment.  i'm tired, sleep well.

  There's a certain something that makes me dislike joggers.  it isn't the actual act of jogging, nor is it the fact that they're like clockwork, or the houses that they jog.  i think it stems from the gear they use and the loook thy keep about them.  the mana sized water ampules set in utility harnesses on their bodies, the skin tight clothing leaving nothing *shiver* to imagination, all of it cries out wrong.  maybe it's because i don't believe jogging should be a 'thing' at all.  running is good.  sprinting is good.  both are useful, both practical, even in today's transport heavy society.  jogging, not so much.  if you're going to the corner store, you might walk, or if its important (your cake/other tricky baked paraphernalia will fall if you don't get more butter into it NOW) run, but jog?  not likely.  similarly, if pursued by a horror movie slasher or a velocraptor or fundraising sales rep, running is a useful skill to have trained.  jogging, not so much.  jogging is the idea of long distance travel by foot at a quicker pace than a walk, presumably to outpace and outlast the animals taht would eat you back in the day.  now we have transportation.  and if you need to get somewhere in a hurry, you would run, and rely on that stamina as opposed to a slower stamina sap.  
  And these thoughts have nothing to do with the fact that i'm going running tomorrow.  early.  gods will it be aggravating to get up that early.  
  Moving on, finished storyboards for tomorrows vids, definitly got a better process, a pity i started so late this week, but i still intend to have another episode of UtD up tomorrow, it just ight be later than usual.  than, cottage!  huzzah!
  Almost went to FanExpo today, but couldn't bring myself to wait ANOTHER two hours in the line i was in.  the day had to go on.  still, i think i'll get more into the con scene more in the future.  i like the enthusiasm and freedom of the people.  also, excuse to wear cat ears and a collar, so yeah.
  I think that's all for the moment.   oh, looking into getting a site to pull everything to a single place.  will advise as that goes.
 Bai bai

UtD - Hagakure

Ep 2 of Under the Desk now up on blip!, also youtube, but blip!

No such luck on the sharpies, but a new process for doing things, which worked better.  time ran a bit long but, as they say, it's a process.

Next UtD will be Bioshock: Rapture, which i need to finish.  yay, a good reason to actually spend some free time reading! Wooo!
In other news, It was my friends birthday earlier, so one more happy birthday before i move on to the next topic.  

The actual blip site is coming along.  i want to redo some of the banners with some sporadic colour and some cleaned up drawings, but at the same time, the charm, to me, is that their representative of teh content.  maybe i'll clean them up some...

Another thought was looking into Adobe Premiere or another video editor.  windows movie maker is...painful to use.  much like photoshop, i imagine Premiere has a learning curve, but hopefully it'll i can get used to.  

I'd like to make a font of my script to use as my word base.  Need to look into font builders.

I should do some writing.  And Sunday i have to run again.  And i have to buy climbing shoes.  And-and-and-
