Let’s shoot from the cuff here.
Carrboro Film Festival! Submission deadline in September, I believe. A video has to be accepted first, which lowers my chances… considerably… but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try. I also don’t have any ideas yet, which lowers my chances even more considerably.
Hacked a random dungeon generator this weekend. It’s pretty snazzy, if I do say so. Takes a template of rooms and snaps them together, where each room can be given a probability it will be selected. This allows for a good deal of control while still making quality dungeons. The hardest part is the post-process; determining which walls are corner pieces and such. I also put together some movement code for a rogue-like.
I’m finally caught up with Lost. Overall it’s solid. It has a significant time travel component which I’m normally violently opposed to (bring up Star Trek, just do it), but it’s mostly tasteful. A lot of the story is sloppy - characters are given most of their motivations through dreams/visions, and sometimes they’re not given any motivations at all besides a ‘feeling’ - but the real stories, the bits worth watching, are when they dive into their characters.
I’m just sad Charlie died. SPOILER. Maybe he can talk to Dumbledore in the afterlife. DOUBLE SPOILER.
My drum set is finally dead. The hi-hat fell off. It’s a fairly significant piece. I’m making due with the ride, but it’s not the same, and I really don’t have the option to record anything anymore. I was looking for a real drum set online, but I don’t want to invest the money (budgets, you see) or the space.
Resting now. For rizzle.
I know that detonating that hydrogen bomb is what we have to do. I just know it.
