Sometimes I play videogames on the internet. Scary games. Or games where I shoot people in the face. Or, you know, both.
Woot Suit Riot In this week's vlog I talked with Ryan Consell about what it's like to not be a real fan. I'm not really committed to any one or even several fandoms, I just sodrt of drift around thinking things are okay. It makes it hard to feel like I'm part of a community sometimes, and other times, when people notice my interest and take it for "real" fandom, I feel like I'm inadequate somehow.

I have a love-hate relationship with flat surfaces. I love putting things on them. I will stack objects on top of objects if necessary.

The problem is that I do seem to hate tidying flat surfaces, so while everything has a place, sometimes that place is under a bunch of other shit.
I spent a bunch of this weekend at the very first Tri-Con KW, both as an attendee and as a bit of an exhibitor. People were met, fun was had, videos were shot, and parties were partied. Ideas were had too, more on that when I get things sorted out. I’ve never really done cons before, not until the last year or so, when I went to Vidcon and Fan Expo.
This week I wrote a thing. My friend Andrew at Potato Chip Math is doing a flash fiction challenge every week, and I wanted to participate because I’m desperately trying to remember what it’s like to write fiction. And yes, writing fiction and writing D&D things are different, don’t ask me why, but they feel really different. I also made my first videos of the new year, with my brand new lights that I built with the help of Ryan Consell, super genius and armorer. I’m making a lot more things this year, and I’m hoping to keep up with it and keep the quality up. I have this boundless creative energy some days, and it’s kinda wonderful. For some reason I also still find time to relax. Here’s an update.
