Last night of the year in British Columbia

Well friends, I say goodbye to 2013 on the west coast.

The remarkably warm 6 degree Celsius evenings are due to be replaced by -21 degree Celsius (-30 with windchill c:) nights in my cozy little hometown in Saskatchewan.  Yeah, I'm about to experience Winter for the first time this year...

Well, it's been an interesting year on the coast.  One I will never forget.

I leave my gaming PC behind meaning I'll be reverting to my Gamecube and Gameboy games for a month.  So there's that.

See you guys on Steam in 2013!

Oh Youtube...

Taken from the comment section of this video.

Oh nothing to see here.  Just a 4894 word count MLP:FIM fanfic here.  No sexualized fan-spunk here people.  Move along.

My gawd Google.  I knew it was bad.  I knew it was hideous.  I knew it was one of the most disgusting places one could go to read human interaction.  BUT FOR F*CKS SAKES!  The old comment section didn't have FULL LENGTH FANFICTION IN IT!

If I have to choose the lesser of two evils, I'll have the angry and irrelevant video shouting again.  500 characters was not enough space to put a love story between two fictional cartoon horses in excrutiating detail.  I shielded my eyes as I copy pasted it into Word to find out the word count. 

Fix it.


Fix it.

You just know the trolls are going to use this more than they already are.  The first part of a comment will lure you into a false sense of security until you hit that "Expand this comment" button.  Then bam.  You're looking at whatever they want to troll you with.

I hope the content providers migrate to another site.

And now, the obligatory:

I use Firefox for a reason.  I don't like Google.

I'm 22 now.

So yeah, that happened.  Also people I know from the Escapist are awesome and giving me games.

I'm... humbled.  Don't really feel I deserve them.


Doesn't mean I'm giving them back!

Thanks guys, you made me feel great today! ^.^

Huff...  Hufff...


FTL on normal is quite unforgiving but this was a very, VERY nice payoff.  The Rattlesnake served me well.

Approaching 50K posts on the Escapist


I made a thing that I'm going to put in the thread I eventually do.  40K was for Marter, this time I've got nothing.  I'll just do whatever.

I'm going to bed early

...but I can just quickly update my Escapist profile.  It has been the same since 2009 and I'm a lot different now.

*hours of Escapist later*

Tightrope walking

Everytime I talk with a certain someone, it seems as if I am over a tremendous canyon on a flimsy tightrope.  The tightrope was hastily assembled and I have little faith in it but I have no other options as once I take the plunge, I'm not ever going back...

Today finds me in a very contemplative mood as I do the last minute sprint to get my stuff packed.  In about two and a half hours I will be on the road to Vancouver, where my future lies.

Here's hoping I don't fall before I'm ready.

Last night I became concious of the fact I was dreaming and flew around.  I lost control and stopped flying and the dream went elsewhere afterwards but I still feel the freedom...

I want to fly again!

Like a book. Reading myself from left to right.

So I've just completed my original vision for what I wanted out of body art.  Something on my left side symbolizing the past in general, my past and relating to games.  Now I have something on my right sided symbolizing the future, my future and relating to games.

Ladies and gentlemen; the Kusari flag.  Kusari, if you don't know, is from the game Freelancer (my absolute favorite game of all time) and is a nation of Japanese colonists who fled Earth in the distant future.  They are very advanced technologically and have a great work ethic due to the restrictions of the zone of space they inhabit.  Kusari, I'm informed, is translated into 'armor' (or at least a kind of armor).  Fighting spirit and innovation are the hallmarks of the colony.

In my future I will be facing restrictions in my life.  I know I'm going to be living below the poverty line when I'm on my own, trying to find film work in a province far away from my parents.  I can't depend on them forever.  I must armor myself to meet this future, I must be ready to adapt.  I must be fierce in my belief of my own individuality and of my view on the world.

It also helps that I think the flag looks f*cking sweet!

That aside, I do have strong emotions attached to this tattoo.  Well, emotions other then the unceasing pain I feel in my arm while I type out this blog.  This year is going to be very important to me in my life.  I'm going on a journey right now that I never expected to board.  But I bought my ticket and I'm too invested to get off now.  My future is rushing towards me in the coming months and I must be clad in armor, ready to deal with whatever it brings.

This will be my last tattoo for a long, long time.  They cost money, they hurt, they have a fairly annoying recovery time.  I have to be absolutely certain of myself when I get one and I was for this one.  With Zapdos on my left shoulder reminding me of who I was as a kid, what I dreamed of and how I saw myself and this new tattoo I feel I'm ready to move on.


That's what's happening with me this very second.

In other news, I don't have a positive timeline for actually setting up or posting the video journals I made already.  I have no idea if I'll actually go through with them. <_<

Take care.

I prefer video journal but yes, I'm making a few videos with just me talking.

I dunno if I'll use the ones I made so far or not but whatever.

It's an idea.
