So. Back from the dead.

The really important news is twofold: I'm romantically involved now, with the lovely Ashley, and the Bliss Stage fanwork that I've been working on, Bliss Stage: Love Is Our Weapon just got funded at Kickstarter to the tune of $2700.00 - Two thousand, four hundred and some-odd after Amazon and KS get their take, not bad at all.

I went to Fanime this year for both reasons. She has a sense of humor, is mature beyond her years, and is amazingly affectionate. I'm pretty sure I love her. I actually met her through Bliss Stage: she was one of our artists for... two? Years and only just fessed up that she enjoyed flirting with me in the last couple of months. I also went with our mutual friend and sometimes also lover Sean, who was a loveable goof.

No major purchases, but we met a wonderful Yukari cosplayer who drew the first non-commissioned Bliss Stage fanart in the history of the game. Of Sara, natch. I predict that our character design of Sara hildegarde Smith will make Sara quite poplar.

Two months and 2.4K later we're doing a major crunch to get something presentable out in 60 days. I'll admit that I didn't expect quite that much support: it's almost half again what we asked for. Good news, I guess. Among other things we're looking for (SF bay area, particularly the East Bay) locals to voice act. We can't pay in money, but we can pay in food, which I'm okay with considering that most of the cash is going STRAIGHT into equipment ANYWAY. Student film ethics apply.

Tried signing up for summer classes, but I fucked up and did it too late. I did sign up for business, Sign Language, and screenwriting classes at BCC in the fall.

Oh, and one last thing: Every game Vincent Baker of Lumpley Games has ever made is amazing. You owe it to yourself to at least sit in on a game of Dogs in the Vineyard, Apocalypse World, or Poison'd. If wargames are more your thing and/or you have a bunch of Legos or Lego byproducts sitting around unused, try Mechaton.

First off: Life.

Just sent an e-mail to Ms. Rapaport, my old career counselor at Job Corps, asking for a little help getting documentation about how fucked up I was at Job Corps. Also, help getting an office job somewhere in the Culinary field. You know, running inventory at a supermarket, or editing a cooking magazine, things like that. Where my erudition on things Food is an asset, and my being a nerd is an asset.

Cooking for myself is fun, and I'm getting adept at learning how to turn convenience foods canned and boxed stuff (sorry for the CulJob jargon) into actual food. It's amazing how delicious Progresso Chicken and Rotini can taste if you saute carrots and onions in a ban with olive oil, salt and herbs, THEN add the contents of that can and a bay leaf. Extra bonus flavor for adding ham to the saute.

Had a lot of fun at Board Game Night at Eudemonia, a card shop intarwebs cafe game store on the east side of Shattuck and University. They hold one every Thursday, and I played a couple of hands of Magic:TG. ...And won, to my surprise. The fact that I was playing Xelvinas' horrifically good White resurrection deck (I like playing "survive until you can destroy the lynchpins of their strategy") in a multiplayer game, but I never really grokked card games until recently I started getting into L5R and The Spoils. I hear the latter is making a comeback, too, now that they've dumped the hardcore angle and made it a casual, non-collectible, stand-alone game.

Which brings me to Bliss Stage - Bliss Stage: Strategic Stage, my now semi-official card game, in particular. Not that y'all care. )

Also, As soon as I saw my new icon I needed it. So hard. "I love you, but You people are all idiots!"

Ruri is THE Savvy Anchor. Get moar icons like these from Tigerbunny at http://www.flickr.com/photos/rathekis/sets/72157622352145040/.

The computer game continues ahead of schedule.

Life is good on my end.

How about you?

Working hard to make playable Bliss Stage demo for Yaoicon. I can definitely attend this year, but may need some hotel help; still, a hotel share doesn't seem as daunting an expense as it would have earlier this year.

New icon extremely related.

"I'm a Devoted Lover!"

"Every time I fight... everything I do... I'm thinking of you. I do everything for you. No one else understands me. If anything happened to you, I just couldn't go on."

Personality:As a Devoted Lover, you're absolutely committed to a single deep relationship. In battle, this commitment makes your ANIMa a deadly weapon. At other times, however you're isolated and moody. Can your love survive the realities of combat?

Advice: Get out more. Your commitment to your lover is admirable, but you need to make more friends. Even if you can't see it, your dependence has put enormous strain on your relationship. Paradoxically, if you spent a little time apart, your love would get deeper. This is easier than you think. Others may find you a little stand-offish, but they'll like you as soon as they get to know you.

Which Bliss Stage Pilot are you?
