Carl can’t be the only one keeping this blog alive.
Just sitting at work waiting for a client to finish recording some audio for a webcast they are doing tomorrow.
Been playing a few things on steam. Finally got a legit copy of portals 2 during the steam sales and me and Sarah have been popping in there every now and then.
We have also had some success with a few mouseguard and marvel sessions over at Curts. Loving both, and can’t wait to play again.
Went to Washington this weekend on a whim. Never been, thought it would be nice…. we decided to drive so I snuck out on Friday and we headed over. Only light traffic, still took us till one in the morning before we got there. It was nice, but we didn’t get to go to the spy museum.
We got a good deal on the hotel, we stayed on capital hill, and we could see the capital building from our hotel, nice. We headed out from there to the washington monument, then the whitehouse, natural history museum and finally the Lincoln memorial, which was getting washed because of a vandal apparently. It’s not everyday you see a man power-washing Lincoln’s crotch. We hoped in a cab just before it started to rain and headed back to the hotel. I highly recommend the visit, especially if you like museums; the place is littered with them.
Anyways, it’s nice to see the blog is still here, I visit it now and then, even if it is only to lurk.
So things have been busy here on all fronts. Job is going good. Not sure if I mentioned to everyone that I am now a service advisor. Better pay and now work in air conditioning lol Well it’s pretty fun though awkward because essentially I became everyone’s boss in the garage. It’s a bit weird but it goes well. Hours I kinda all over the place however I am finally getting consistent weekends off.
Things at home going good as well. Got to start on my basement project. Been procrastinating a bit on that but been trying to get the car done so been back and forth. I got the new fuel pump installed and the tank is now raised in place. I tried to start the car however ran into an electrical problem. Boy did I curse lol I was able to diagose the issue today and luckily it was a fuse for the ECM computer. It’s funny when you look at old vehicles and how they work you really wonder what they were thinking especially one more unique cars. So now I just have to install a new brake switch and we should have action. Fingers crossed as I really want to drive it lol Seem’s to me it would be a very nice car to drive just for fun in the summer and heck, maybe do a road trip to visit my Ontarian friends
Aside from that I have played a bit of Ni No Kuni which is thus far quite excellent. I highly recommend the game and it’s around $30 for you PS3 folks. The animation is quite spectacular that you feel like your watching an anime without it feeling gamey at all.
As you all got emails about Cthulhu I have been working on getting some props done for the game. I mentioned while it is a play by post campaign that I wanted to provide some props for fun. I have been fiddling with aging paper. Tea staining works great for that old look and you can get some decent effects too. There are some fancier techniques to enhance the look and oldness of the paper by trying to keep things low cost as must as I can lol But I am pretty excited about the premise of it all and I think the play by post medium will fit well with Cthulhu.
