I managed to finally go to this new japanese restaurant that opened up nearby. Went with a couple friends, we had heaps of fun eating and chatting with the owners. Food was awesome. So going back again. I also finally, and when I say finally I mean FINALLY, after 15 years managed to decide on a bokken to purchase. Its basically made of plastic but its as strong as steel, yet really light. I forget the actual term for the material. All I know is its brilliant. You can smash bricks with it and it wont dent. Heres a pic of me holding it.
Its about the length of a proper katana, supposedly same weight. I havent held one in a while but from memory its pretty close. Good thing about this one is I cant kill anyone with it. But I can sure as hell do some damage.
Been so frustrated with my system. It doesnt play Witcher 2 too smoothly despite the video card being beast. My cpu is too old and finally showing its age, although its hammered everything I've thrown it over the past 4 years. I'm going to need to replace it which means new motherboard and ram to go with it. Despite working all the time its also pretty hard to justify spending what little money you have on things like this, although I'm going to try. Doubly hard now that I'll be leaving my job. I'd also like to rage at people who have more powerful systems then me, saved up more money then me, and dont have a job. A giant fuck you.
Anyway, a super awesome thing happened the other day. Jed finally showed me the latest comic page for our story, practically finished. I totally love it. He put in a few of my ideas but everything we put out is a merge of both our ideas. I just need to write up the text for it tomorrow since I'll finally have time to actually sit down, and then have him go over it with any changes he'd like. With any luck we'll be able to finally post it up in the next few days. Definitely no later then this coming week. I'm going to say wednesday MAX, unless our jobs fuck us over as usual. I hope you all enjoy it and with luck we'll be able to put out the pages a bit faster. One thing I'd really love to do down the road, if we get a few dozen pages up and its popular enough, is maybe have fan submissions like guest artists/writers just for fun. Either way should be fun whatever happens.
