Should I Start My Own Business?

I’ve been thinking a lot about branching out from the traditional work structure. Repeated incidents in the past have shown me that I may not be the best fit to have someone else in charge of me. I try to do my best to comply with their wishes and follow the rules, but in each prior case, something forced us apart. So I’m wondering… Is there anything I do that people would be interested in paying for? I’m going to list some things I think could be monetized down below, and if you read this, I’d like for you to tell me which you’d be interested in.

Space Ghost, and Other Music

You may (or may not) have seen my new page about Space Ghost, a local indie band from my high school days that broke up way too soon. They made some good music while they were around, and I’ve chosen some of it to feature on the page. You can see it here.

Of course, that’s not the only music I listen to, but it helped shape what I really like and can’t get enough of. Here’s a little taste of what’s on my playlists:

Getting out of my head

If you wanted to know where my head’s at recently, here you go. But I warn you. Be prepared for some thoughts that aren’t so nice. Hell, I’m used to those kinds of thoughts these days.

I wanna start by apologizing for all the negativity recently. You can take that to mean whatever time period you want, but I’m sure it pretty much extends to the past 2 years at least.

For now, I’m gonna take you on a journey of where I’ve been for the past 2 years, and how things are going with me now. Be warned, the following post is bound to be incredibly long. If you wind up making it all the way through, thank you.

Review: Ready Player One

Standard Disclaimer: Spoilers Ahead If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you may not want to read this just yet. Go see it before reading!  

The Good

Easy-to-follow adventure/coming-of-age/gamer love fantasy story. Relatable characters. Beautiful visuals, and a good blend of live action and CGI. A good virtual-age teenage love story.

The Bad

Crammed with so many geek/nerd culture references, you'll miss something if you blink. Yet another retelling of the familiar "put down the phone/keyboard and go outside" narrative. Under-developed supporting characters.

I will freely admit that this movie surpassed my expectations by a fair bit. After seeing trailers and commercials nearly nonstop for several weeks, I had already determined the thing was going to be a flop. But at least it would be a pretty flop. I suppose, looking back, that this was the perfect mindset to have going in.

Ready Player One held my attention the entire time (minus one short bathroom break) with its gorgeous visuals and countless hidden visual “Easter eggs” that tied in beautifully with the story’s overall endgame. I’ve already forgotten the name of The Oasis‘s creator, but I assure you none of the characters will let you go two minutes without hearing it or some other random excruciating detail about him. The virtual museum of his life serves as a very frequent setting to the story’s events, so we get to see his (past) life unfold alongside both the game’s main quest and Wade Watts’ own self-discovery. Ultimately, I found this obsession over the game’s creator a bit tedious, especially given the recent events unfolding surrounding Facebook and the like. Players comb through this man’s personal experiences, which he freely shares, with excruciating detail, gleaning plot-driving clues from the tiniest bits of conversation.

Fetch quest after fetch quest takes us through this extremely pretty world. Which is nice. But seriously, every single 80s reference you can think of. All over the screen. All the time. And the whole “the real world sucks so we’ll save our virtual one from getting commercialized, ’cause we already screwed up there once” message gets a bit preachy toward the end. 

It’s a fun watch. It’s a pretty watch. But it’s not one I’d watch multiple times. Certainly not a classic, maybe a cult classic later on. 

Note: I’ll be honest with you; I’ve had this sitting in the queue for some time now. Haven’t really had a reason to finish it, so I guess I’ll just go ahead and put it out there.

The movie was alright. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it, and I haven’t watched it a second time. Didn’t feel it necessary. I’m sure there are fans out there somewhere. 


Web Building Again

For better or worse, I’ve decided to help my partner, Markos, tackle something that’s been in need of doing for a long time now…

We’re gonna bring back Furry News Network.

Yeah, it’s probably not the greatest idea in the current climate, but people have been asking. Presumably there are some people, out there on the internet, who want it to come back for whatever reason.

This past weekend, I took a trip with my family up to Williamsburg, VA, to enrich my cultural and historical knowledge, or something like that. Either way, it was pretty great. I rode a ferry for the first time in my life across the James River, and that was definitely an experience. The whole ordeal has led to what will undoubtedly go down as the most memorable moment from the whole trip.

So…about Tumblr.

I know everyone’s really tired of talking about all this stuff, so I’ll keep it short.

Effective immediately, I’m shutting down the Tumbleblogs. I know, shocking.  And who cares anyway, right?

Well just in case someone does, that means the following tumblr blogs will be offline, effective whenever I decide to delete ’em:

  • (mainly a porn reblog site)
  • (will be redirected to a different page, somewhere else)
  • (I know the ban doesn’t extend to text posts, but myeh. You might see more here or somewhere related)

Any relevant content (that I own) I want to keep from there, I’ll repost here. For my millions of loyal readers. 😉 /s
