      Well, I do try to make my way on here from time to time. I watch a video there, catch up with y'all here. But. it's not easy to do it when there is dang near nothing new to talk about.
      EXCEPT FOR THIS, BABAY!
      I started this in April, and yesterday was the culmination of all those weekends and off hours on the work week. Between all that I'm usually up at 3AM for work, I have to stomach work, and then it's either games or this.
      One more side note, it's only in 360. I don't remember exactly when Youtube started making 480 the default size, but I'll just have to plan accordingly. Thanks for checkin' it out guys.

      EDIT: My bad. Forgot to change the link after I uploaded a better synced version. NOW it's enjoyable.

    • Updating is essentially what I've become.

      Eh, I've had a few drinks, get off my back. Anyway, I wanted to check in and give y'all a bit o' the lowdown since I was last around frequently.
      In the last 2 years since my last journal entry, excluding the one about my boner, I've moved out of the Seattle area. I couldn't get a job in game animation cuz I didn't search far enough or nearly wide enough to find an opening, and ended up getting evac from my folks. The car ride to Spokane, then to home, was interesting: we brought along a cat I adopted, and broke her cage before we even left Minot. And she pissed in it. So the whole trip before Spokane, she sat on my leg. Her name is Mew/Seattle/Kitty/Dammit, and she loves people. Great cat, you'd love her too.
      I moved back home to regroup before my big move to North Dakota, where a new job awaited me. Fun fact, I had my interview with HR there over the phone, the day after St. Patrick's, at 7 AM. I was massively fuckin' hung over all day until I got some Chinese delivered, and then that same day I completed a DnD campaign that my ex was running for us. Great night.
      These days, the job is getting a little stale. It's all working with your hands and assembling parts that go in aircraft. These days it's all about trying to fill my life with stuff that alleviates the soul crushing monotony of my weekday. One of these ideas was to start a Youtube channel with family. A place for Let's Plays and animation, but truth be told we've both been slacking. I've only put out one animation, and him, one LP. Here's a link to my animation, also located on my profile page.
      That's all that I've been up to, in as short an essay as I could make. I look forward to getting back in touch with all y'all.
      My first animation (new one coming soon bug me about it)

    • Coming home

      reesekindle

      I'm sorry it took me so long to realize, but this has been my favorite place to hang out.
      I'm gonna make a note to come here to see you all every day at some point, and I won't make fake updates that are just bullshit. I hope you will accept me back. I've got some things to share, and I just hope that you all (you know who you are) will take me back after a very long, and unexpected, hiatus.

      Ask me about the move.

      To recap on the events that have transpired since my disappearance, I got an Xboner. And it won't "turn off."

      Tomorrow I go to the ceremony and graduate formally, but today was a better day because it was the Benaroya Hall show for the graduating class.
      I had some stuff up, and if you want to check it out it's on my youtube page. just type in my tube name: watermelondisco
      Should be the one with the latest date code (120711).
      Now comes the fun part. Living, and I hope I getta move all over the damn country. How else will I see the rest of it?
      I forgot to mention this (and I apologize for not doing so even sooner), but my game I worked on with Voda came out on the iTunes store. At the very least check it out. I did most of the animation (the only one I didn't do was the fat announcer). Type in Mobile Linebacker.

      Lemme know what you've been up to. I've been away too long.

    • Rage over RAGE

      5 years ago

      reesekindle

      Have you played RAGE yet? How 'bout that campaign, huh? Some pretty sweet AI and character design? All those guns with their various ammunition? Great stuff, right?
      It would be, if RAGE's campaign wasn't so short! Seriously, I think if you put together all the time I played the campaign I'd only come up with... what, less than 10?
      RAGE, I love you, and your combat levels are spectacular but my God, it is tempting to just send you back. You better have some DLC out on the way.

      Besides that, Arkham City is fast becoming one of my favorite Metroidvania style games ever. It is the natural evolution of such games as Metroid and Shadow Complex, and you owe yourself at least a look.

      My contract job with VODA ended over October, and now I'm waiting in the wing for a new animation gig. The game I worked on (for the iPhone) comes out this November hopefully. All depends on whether or not the big wigs say yay or nay. Besides that just been doing animation on the side for Mod Team's project. Ask me a question.

    • One more thing.

      5 years ago

      reesekindle

      Who is interested in doing voices for a animated short I'm devising? Here's the scoop:
      It's an animated short, using only the norman rig because it has facial controls. The script is an excerpt from one of my favorite scenes in Catch 22 in which Clevinger is on trial. Anyone interested please leave your e-mail in the comments so I can give you a line to read for audition. I'm looking for.
      A gruff, angry Colonel Mustard character (Bloated Colonel with the big fat mustache.)
      A sniveling, scared victim of circumstance. (Clevinger)
      A sycophantic subordinate. (Colonel Metcalf)
      Finally, a nonchalant, obsessive officer. (Lieutenant Scheisskopf)

      This is on a voluntary basis, of course. I know plenty of you love to do voice work from working with you on machinima projects. I hope you'll be interesting in helping out.

    • Who put dat dere!?

      Hiya folks!

      Trying to up my ante of site activity today. Goin' around, commenting on shit, watching Red vs. Blue, that whole schpeel.
      Why did a (1) show up on my tab bar next to the site name?
      How's everybody been doing these past months? Looks to me like there is life outside of Seattle, and just wanted to reach out to it once again.
      So THAT's what the (1) is for. Fresh.
      If you and I are friends on Facebook, then you know my attention has been more focused there than anywhere, perhaps as a survival instinct. As graduation looms ever closer (was supposed to graduate this quarter but got held back. :() I feel that the connections I make with my RL friends need to be cared for so I have people to rely on in tight situations when I leave. Thankfully I have a housing arrangement set up in a couple of weeks so I won't be homeless after this week. Also I am going on my 3rd week working at Voda Digital, on a non disclosed project. All I can say on it is I am the sole animator for this project, and I hope those of you who own iPhones, iTouches, iGasms, or iBrains will take a look at it when it comes out. I'll keep ya posted on its status.
      Besides that job I've started working weekends, behind the deli, at the local grocery story Ralph's. The pay is the same as Voda which I am thankful for. Too long I've lived off of other people's money.
      For entertainment I've been mostly playing MAG, a PS3 MMOFPS. If you haven't checked it out, it's probably cheap enough you can get it for practically nothing, and it's fun. I choose that over all the Battlefields, Modern Warfares, or whatevers out there today. If you do have it, look for my clan (Frog Brigade, or the 3 letter handle [FBG])
      Nice chatting with you. Maybe we should do it again sometime.

      Nope. But it's not too expensive from what I hear. $30 a day? And that is a flat fee. There is nothing extra to pay except for food and merchandise. All concerts, showcases, performances, and exhibits are included in the price of entry.

    • Red_Uncle

      6 years ago

      I meant it's hard to get into the gaming industry on story writing concepts alone, that's why I hope to get myself in as a good level and character designer as well. Stories, characters, and worlds all go hand-in-hand, but it will still take work which I hope to be able to follow through on, but I'm not EXACTLY certain the degree plan I'll need to follow to make it work.

      (And yes, I would NEVER consider an art institute)

    • Red_Uncle

      Would love to be involved with game dev, but all I'm good at is writing which is a hard area to get in.

      Rec told me you were the guy to talk to, so hi.

      Ive been looking for animation software for a while now, and up till now (to my shame ) I have been getting away with figuring things out on MikuMikuDance. I havent shared anything, but I think Im ready to take on a better, more complex program. Blender is way too advanced for me, even with the tutorials on youtube, so I wanted to ask for your advice.
