Promising to write something here means I tend not to come here at all, because unless I have something to say I feel guilty about even darkening the doorstep of the site. I haven’t been updating the new releases and the release date information just because I didn’t have time to write anything new here.
I’ve been gallivanting around the world, playing games, and writing books. I’ve finished writing the entire Halfway Dead series (edits are happening on the last one right now), and I’ve watched some good movies and some terrible ones. I’ve spent far too much time watching my Summoned series on Amazon, but not as much as I spent on Merikh, so at least I’m heading in the right direction.
So, for those of you who check in here every day and wonder if I got stuck in China after the last blog post: No, I’m just a dick who makes promises he doesn’t keep (like a politician, or a dentist who says “this won’t hurt a bit”).
For those of you stopping by for the first time after reading one of my books: Dude, welcome, I hope you like what you’ve read and be sure to come back regularly. I post here constantly.
For the bots at google: I was going to post a bunch of SEO friendly words for them to scrape, but then I’d be the type of asshole who does that kind of thing, and then I’d have to punch myself in the face.
Some quick reviews:
Dishonored 2 – Good, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first one. Which is pretty normal for a sequel.
John Wick 2 – See above. I just didn’t get as connected with the story, and the pacing felt a little off in places. Still good, though.
Dead Rising 2 – I’m in Australia, so buying Dead Rising 4 costs as much as a small car, so I decided to play 2 instead. Fun, in a sandbox kinda way. Once you get over level 15 or so, the game gets a little samey.
12 Monkeys (TV) – The new Battlestar Galactica, and one of my favourite things to grace TV. Binge the shit out of it if you get the chance.
China – Cool country. Would visit again.
Hong Kong – Still love the city. Still one of my favourite places on the planet.
DJI Mavic Pro – That’s the little drone I told you about in the last post. It’s amazing, and might be my current favourite way to waste my life. I’ve got all kinds of accessories now and I’ve learned a little about video editing to make things look as nice as they can be. I bought some ND filters (sunglasses for the drone) from Polar Pro, and they’re supposed to allow you to go through the gimbal calibration with the filter on, and they don’t (not that this string of words means anything to anybody). I am more annoyed about that than I have any reason to be.
I’ll post some pictures from my travels. At some point. When I get around to it. I might even pop one of the Mavic videos on YouTube, if I can be bothered figuring out how that works.
I’m off to the Daintree rainforest next week, and then we’re going to hang out on an island for a few days. I’m going to try and finish up the last structural things on Death Lord (Halfway Dead 3), at which point it’s off to get my spelling and grammar fixed, and then it’s off to the presses. Hopefully Death Magic (Book 1) will be out this month.
If you’ve made it to here in the post, then thank you for reading my rambling. If you haven’t then you’re not reading this, and I can talk shit about you if I want to. I won’t, but I could.
