I’m bringing it back yall… slowly but surely, I’m bringing it back.
What’s going on? I bet you’re wondering! Okay, maybe not, I’ve been woefully inattentive to this site, and I keep promising to rectify that and then never actually do.
All that’s going to change (this time, I really really swear). Granted, not all at once, I still kind of have to feel out my current sorting of my hobbies before I can fit all the pieces back together.
But the first and most important piece is of course the long awaited continuation of Journey’s End. It was a long chapter to write, spread out over the course of months, but as of Tuesday I finally got the last little bit written down. In the end, the little bugger weighed in at twenty-four pages at just a hair over ten-thousand words.
So, given how long it took to write, and how much there is, I also expect there to be lots to edit.
I’m still hoping to have it up no later than late Friday night, but possibly having to carry over to early next week depending on how quickly the editing process goes.
As for the other two things that this site is good for…
Music. It’s going to be tougher and tougher to keep posting music. That’s because since I first started doing musical posts over at Comments From Left Field, there has been a major shift wherein official videos are blocked from embedding. This leaves me with only a few undesireable options.
I could post fan made videos, but I always feel weird doing that. Many fan made videos are terrible or strange.
I could post live performances, but the problem with live performances is that they tend to sound awful, especially moving through YouTube’s sound system.
I could just start looking for independent music that wouldn’t have blocked official videos, but the fact of the matter is that my indie music snob days are behind me, and I’m just too lazy to go out searching for good new stuff.
So, for the time being, the morning juice is dead. It may, however, come back to life as just interesting videos that catch my fancy for whatever reason.
The games… well, I definitely need to get back to posting games on a daily basis. I’ve gotten rusty in both finding and reviewing games, and it’s affecting my ability to contribute positively at Jay is Games. My work with games here I felt as kind of a way to keep sharp in the world of independent and casual games, and without that tool at my disposal, I’ve fallen off.
So game posts will eventually start back up, hopefully sooner than later.
That covers my writing, the music, and the games… That should do it. Music’s dead, chapter 10 of Journey’s End should be ready to go by next week at the latest, and I hope to start regularly posting games again VERY soon.
Until then, I’ve got one last surprise for you. If you are really, really missing my general words flooding your head, you can listen to me at our new blogger radio show: CommentsCast. Get used to my voice, too, as I eventually intend to put Journey’s End on audio for your listening pleasure!.
Well, I think that about covers it. Unless I can find something else to procrastinate with, I think I’ll just get right on to editing Chapter 10, shall I?
