We're at Camp Ithaqua this weekend, named for the Elder God of the frozen north. Basically we rented a cottage and played boardgames and rpgs all weekend. Good times are had by all. It's been neat to share space and get to know people, but I am literally leaving in a few minutes. Done all sorts of talking about everything from the symbolic world to why good people are interesting because they create good stories, as well. Also, we've got a few videos up on the channel from the camp. Being grownups is rad. That's really what it comes down…
That’s Vlogging Every Day in April. If you follow the Riot channel, you may have noticed a lot more updates than our usual vlogs, videogames, and podcasts. That’s because it’s VEDA, and although VEDA has been abandoned by my genius crush Hank Green, likely because he’s on tour all month, I’m still vlogging every day in April. Sometimes it’s short, sometimes it’s videogames, sometimes it’s music, but it’s always something. I’ve been doing it for the past two years, and it never fails to remind me of a few things that I want to share.
Woot Suit Riot In the 5th grade my teacher tried to break me with the hallway,, but instead I was transformed into a superhuman, incapable of being bored. Not exactly, but pretty close. Boredom is an opportunity to let your mind wander and your imagination run away with itself. The real secret is in the video.
Woot Suit Riot More F.E.A.R.! I think I might actually be getting worse at this game, and there's certainly less scary and more shooting as it goes on. Not sure how I feel about that.
Today I wrote a thing, explaining the ethical obligations I have to my future self and why I should be nicer to Future Jim even if he sometimes is a lazy jerk. He gets that from his present self, so I can't blame him. Also, my final polar song, for Amanda Garbe!
