The Show Must Go On

I haven't made anything in months (except for podcasts, thanks to my partner shoving me along on that one). Barely written a word, only shot a few videos, wrote a couple of songs but haven't recorded them (it doesn't count if you don't record them. Anything else is just singing in the shower). It's got to the point where I'm having random nightmares about making stuff. It's not writer's block, writer's block is for chumps. Not life getting in the way, though it's done plenty of that. Not even videogames leeching away my precious energies. It's just not doing it.…

My First Megaparty

This weekend my house has been occupied by Headshots from the Heart¬†organizers and volunteers as we edit video like mad. With forty-eight hours of footage from the past two years, it's high time something was done, and so it will be. We're pulling performances, contests, jokes and weirdness, and having a great time doing it (even though much of it looks like five people sitting in silence until one of them laughs). Trust me, this is way better than trying to do it on my own. It's more than fun though, it reminds us of what we're doing and why…

Tri-Con 2014

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.

2014 Calendar

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.

In Which I Appear in Videos

More than usual. Sure, twice a week on Youtube, but this week the Ignite Waterloo 13 videos came out, including my talk ¬†on the unsung benefits of charity events (which wasn’t my best, but turned out a lot better than I thought). I also make a brief appearance in Mad Art Lab’s Carl Sagan Day video, which is probably the closest I’ll ever come to making a video with famous people.

Other things are also afoot, Headshots from the Heart is getting rolling, music is happening, and I’m putting together a nerd event here in KW!
