Variable “work” has exceeded parameters

So it turns out that I’m still not finished with the unpleasant “real” work. I’ve spent hours upon hours copying bibliographical data, but there is still more to do. Post-colonial this, post-modern that, heremeneutics here, transculturality there… gah! Interesting updates shall have to be postponed until tomorrow. If you’re bored, …

The One With The Crippling Stomach Pains

Forgive the slowness of the updates; I’ve gone from bad headaches to crippling stomach pains. Yesterday was particularly unpleasant. On top of that, there’s been a lot of work (real work) to do. And breathing makes my entire stomach area feel like it’s a giant bruise. Not fun. UPDATE: It …

Twitter

I signed up for Twitter. My main motivation is to annoy my friend Julian, who hates Twitter. But I’m also genuinely curious as to whether it makes any sense. It also seems like a good way of adding smaller updates to this website – I don’t want to write a …

Crisis, Progress and Role-Playing

I’ve been in a bit of a crisis regarding Phenomenon 32. Even though at times I’ve been really satisified with it, now I felt that it was just too simplistic, and that it ought to be split up into two different games. I played around with Construct, creating a little …

Off to Berlin

We’re leaving tomorrow (or today, rather, if you’re into that sort of pedantry) to go visit my old friend Julian in Berlin, so no updates over the weekend. And now a random recommendation: Hugh Laurie’s novel The Gun Seller is absolutely brilliant. Some people insist on calling it a “spoof …

Things Are Moving Forward

As part of my push to move things forward in terms of my work, I have registered www.landsofdream.net. For now, it just leads here, but that will change as new projects are announced. I also got a couple of other domains, but there is still some kind of strange issue …

Argh, blargh and gnargh.

I had been planning to spend all of yesterday working on Phenomenon 32. Instead, I was so incredibly ill that I spent the whole day in bed, incapable of eating or driking. I swear I haven’t felt this bad in years, if not decades. It was awful. Even when my …

Now.

Work continues on Phenomenon 32. As soon as Verena wakes up, we’ll be watching the finale of Battlestar Galactica. I’m looking forward to it, as the wrap-up will really tell me what I finally think of this show. I may write a retrospective-type thing.

Not. Fair.

I just spent an hour building a “How to Help” page for this website, with a PayPal donation button and some suggestions about spreading the word a little… and now the god-damn button doesn’t work. And I don’t even know why. This used to be simple. Sigh. Makes it really …
