Greetings DA faithful! It's your friendly (and recovering) N8Dogg5k here to give you some progress updates, but first, boy oh boy did I just have a hum-dinger of a party.
As I'm sure most of you could tell, yesterday was my birthday, and for the first time in years, I had that day off from work, so I was celebrating with my family and some of my greatest friends such as
While some of my usual compatriots for such an occasion like and couldn't join, i know they were more than with me in spirit.
As the ice-breaker for the gathering I got to try out an awesomely fun new card game (Stay Away!) where someone is an eldritch type horror that's infecting the other players not too dissimilar to the film The Thing from John Carpenter. We played a ton of matches in fighting games (particularly King of Fighters 14 and Tekken 7) as well as some serious throw-downs in Puyo-Puyo Tetris.
Before we Move away from the party shenanigans, I do want to give thanks to all of those who wished me a Happy Birthday. Without a doubt I most certainly had a great time.
Now for some minor updates on things.
Those of you who are on the commission list have been the most patient of people, and I can never thank you all enough for that. Trust me when I say that only a few of them are still being worked on, but I hope that as I've been posting them up on DA you all like what you see, and feel they were worth the wait. I'm pretty close to finishing most of the more demanding ones up, so with a little bit of elbow-grease (and a little bit of luck) I should be able to have them all done before September.
I again apologize to everyone on the list for it taking so long.
I never anticipated that it would take me this long to work down the list (which is mostly due to the factor that my regular job has a demanding schedule and tends to take up most of my time) but I'm glad that I'm at least steadily getting them done.
Blood Code Radio
Not exactly my most active project at the moment I'll admit, but I've been so busy with my regular job that I just haven't had time to sit down and record a new broadcast. More will be coming soon enough though, as I'm going to be making more of an effort to get others in on some fun/cool topics. I know that one of my last broadcasts was a bit more somber in tone, and I want to get back to the fun nerd talks of previous installments.
All the same, I'm glad that it's still a thing people are listening to, as I've been getting hit up about new shows in recent weeks.
The goal of creating an art stream has finally been met. Not only am I streaming now, I'm also doing it consistently. I won't deny that it's been an extremely helpful tool in keeping me active and on a regular schedule.
Even though I'm playing it safe and starting out slow with it, as I build my speed, with it will inevitably come more shows.
If anything else, I'm amazed that I pull an audience of my current size. Didn't think that I was notable enough to pull in close to thirty people for a single show.
For those who are in the Baltimore area during August 11-13 I'll be attending Bronycon, selling work at the Roan RPG booth. I'll be joined by
I'm sure it'll be a raucously good time for all who join us, and I look forward to meeting some of you there!
