Things have been a little stressful around here lately. My roommate let me know only last Tuesday that he was moving out by the end of the month. And since I am going back home to visit my family this week, I had to scramble to find a new roommate before I leave. So the majority of last week was lost on that debacle. But the good news is I have a roommate ready to move in in October, and the both of us are super-stoked. So everything worked out.
I had scheduled over 20 appointments to show my apartment today and tomorrow (I leave for home on Wednesday), but after I talked to the person who is going to be my new roommate, things just clicked. We have a ton of things in common, so I had this person come by before anyone and check the place out and then we had a nice chat, and we both agreed it was a good fit. So I was able to cancel all the appointments I had scheduled and am able to get real work done on Clara Ravens Ep. 4 today! Thank goodness that ordeal is over with.
The Exclusive Newsletter Subscription Gallery is now live! Just click on the image in the sidebar and enjoy never-before-seen images!
We actually mashed up the old “Donator Gallery” (from back when I was begging for money to help me get my PC upgrades) with the new Newsletter Subscription Gallery, so now all of those images are in one place. Be sure to bookmark the page! There is no access to the page from the website, so if you want to view the gallery images again in the future, you’ll need access to the URL. There will be future stuff added there exclusive to those who subscribed, so check back.
BIG thanks to Xipomus who worked his ass off on this all weekend. He also managed to fix the small alignment issue with the text on the buttons of the website, including the “Add Comment’ button (and anywhere else a grey button appears). So I’m grateful to him for all of his dedication to getting this up and running while I was out getting drunk all weekend.
Enjoy the gallery! And thanks for signing up!
EDIT 9/16/14: Shit, I forgot I had saved some pics months ago in anticipation of the Newsletter Gallery setup and misplaced them. I found them and added them to the gallery, so there’s four new pics in there today.
Well, I’m back on the grid and ready to drop some updates. But to be honest, the notion of writing a long-winded blog post to fill you all in on my San Diego Comic Con 2014 experience, update plans for the DCV, social media launches, and the state of my liver after the heavy boozing over the last two weeks seems exhausting. So I’m just going to let this one flow ‘stream of consciousness’ style and see where it takes us. I hope to be brief. I also hope I’m wearing briefs because I just pissed myself with boredom (that’s a thing, right?).
First off, SDCC 2014 was incredible albeit lacking in energy and pizzazz. This year felt… smaller. I don’t know quite how to describe it. Missing was the grand spectacle of previous year’s booths, which would blow your mind as you first walked on the exhibit floor. Also seemingly in smaller numbers were the cosplayers. I honestly don’t recall seeing even one single Power Girl. Seriously. How the fuck was there no Power Girl cosplay? That’s usually the go-to cosplay for chicks who want to show off their magnificent rack. And finally, the crowd itself just seemed to be lacking the enthusiasm and energy of years past. It was a very low-energy vibe I got this year…
The store will be down for a little while for maintenance.
