Well, I’ve been slacking a little on the “blogging” front lately, and for that I apologize. I do have two reasons, though I’ll let you judge the merit of my excuses. For starters, I’ve been helping some people from my Dad’s church stucco a Huge-Ass-Wall?, so that’s taken up a little of my time. Also, being away for three weeks means I’m trying to play catch-up on DF-BHD. Archon is a full three ranks ahead of me, and though I doubt I’ll catch him, I’m going to try.
Speaking of stucco, if you’ve never done it before, don’t feel that you’re missing out on anything. It consists mostly of your left arm holding this plate like a waiter, which you pile up with cement. Now, holding this plate of cement up in the air, you use a trowel to scoop the stucco/cement off the plate onto a wall, pushing hard to get the mixture to stick to the wall. Once all the cement/stucco is gone, you pile some more onto your plate, and repeat. Like, I don’t know, 7 million times. If you’re neck, back, and arms aren’t in serious pain by the end of the day, you’ve been stuccoing wrong. Trust me.
DF-BHD is becoming a little more time consuming. Archon and I had joined a squad called PointX, but things were starting to get a little too controlled for us. We mentioned a few things about this to the squad’s “ruling council” and they basically handed the clan off to me and him. So, we’re not sure where to proceed from here, but we’ll figure something out.
I borrowed Signs from my uncle and aunt today, so I could watch it with my Dad, who has yet to see it. I’m interested in his reaction, and I’ll be sure to let you all know. We’re going to wait until it’s dark before we watch it: I feel the movie is better in that mood. I definitely enjoyed the movie in the theatre: I was watching it with my then girlfriend, and half-way into the movie she asked me to let go of her hand, because I was squeezing it so hard. Not exactly my finest hour, but hey, what’s a guy to do?
I’m still waiting on some pictures that I left to develop in Gaithersburg, MD, while I was there visiting my Mom. Once I have those, I should be able to complete three articles: “Why America Is Going To Shit,” a compelling piece on the degradation of America’s character, “Gettysburg: 140 Years Later,” a gripping look at America’s bloodiest battlefield, and “Where’s Avelino?” a timeless story of one man’s journey across America. OK, that attempt to legitimatize what I do here by adding big words was just far too much fun.
Finally, Archon is working a little on the setup and design of the Stasistech Network, which I’m definitely supporting. He has some great ideas, and hopefully you’ll see them implemented here and on the main site soon. On my end, I might be doing a little redesign, but for sure I’ll be making additions to the Links page and the Reviews page. Once I start working more and playing less, that is. Be sure to send us your feedback. Or donations, for that matter. You can find our contact info on the About/Cast page. Until next time, take care.
