Another short blog. I was away on a family holiday for most of the week and just got back today. But don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you of slides on my trip to Rosslare! But what I will do is basically recommend (in a kind of follow Friday on a Sunday way) some very cool people to follow on twitter because they’re a bit like family only they might be a bit more interesting to you. In no particular order:
I think it’s been pretty obvious that I’ve been very busy lately. I haven’t done anything on the text adventure tutorial series in a while and a lot of my posts have been done on the run. I’m ok with that. Life is busy and that’s no bad thing. I’m still getting to post here on a weekly basis and while I’d love for the quality to be better, I’m happy with were it is considering my situation.
Things have been pretty manic around these parts recently. Thought I’d talk about what’s going on. Haven’t really done any personal posts here, or anywhere, in quite some time to be honest. I haven’t had a lot of creative energy recently but I think there’s a pretty good reason for that. Maybe even more than one.
I know I’ve spoken about it a couple of times, but I think it’s a thing a lot of people don’t know about me: I’ve been practicing Tai Chi for more than ten years. As the art goes, that’s not really a long time, I’m certainly no master. But it’s still kind of a long time to be doing something. I’m very much in one of those situations where the more I know, the more I don’t know. And it’s great.
I was gonna write about the cost of gamedev this evening but really I need more energy to write something interesting about that. Instead I’m going to talk a little bit about why Dr. Who doesn’t excite me any more. Your views may differ and that’s fine, if you still enjoy Dr. Who and think everything I say here that’s totally fine, I’m glad you get something out of Who. We can still be friends!
Mostly it’s because everything the series has become far too bogged down in it’s own lore and the Doctors infallibility. I get that it’s mainly aimed at children/young adult’s and that’s fine. But that doesn’t mean you have to constantly retread the same ground over and over. In a way, he’s become a parody of himself, and it’s something I’ve seen happen again and again in series that just seem to go on for too long.
New York what? That’s what I ask myself every time I see this abbreviation because I’m an idiot. You’re not an idiot so knew exactly what it meant of course 🙂 I hope you had a great one, and are ready for another one because that’s what you’re getting whether you like it or not.
