It really can be hard to think up titles for round ups. I've mentioned that before though. Numerous times in fact. I'm not fond of reusing stuff, so part of me really hates to just say "Weekly Round Up XX/XX." Oh well. I think I need to change the schedule up a bit really. So far on my current schedule I do three A-Z posts a week, and that means it's going to take me maybe a month and a half. While it's nice not to have to worry about content too much for that long, it still seems like too long. Still, Mondays are round up days, Thursdays are podcasts, and Saturday is story day. I was thinking of making Sunday an A-Z post, but barely anyone will read it. This place is pretty dead on weekends. If anything I should probably change the day I post Immortal Space. Anyway, I also wanted to make podcasts around them too, talk about the topic instead of write about it, but I have a few podcasts I have to publish, some that have been waiting too long. So, yeah. This is going to take longer than originally planned. Oh well. On to the actual round up for this week, long after anyone has stopped reading.
I'm including last Monday because I talked about a fair few things other than the round up post. I mentioned I had lost my iPod, and I was worried about where it might be, and that it could be lost forever. It turns out that instead of calling the waaaaaambulance I should have checked my coat pockets more thoroughly. EMPTY pockets people, don't just check them. I also talked about The Hunger Games (which means I can't really do it for the A-Z thing) and I have now read all three of them actually. Sometimes it didn't go how I thought it would, but this is a good thing really. Overall they were great books, and I would definitely recommend them. Plus nearly all of my preconceptions that it was just Battle Royale have been done away with. Some of the concept is, that can't be denied, but it continues on long after the arena, and there's a lot more that happens in Hunger Games, that doesn't happen in Battle Royale, though I don't want to spoil either thing. Jeez that was a lot.
Tuesday I addressed the letter C, for "celebrations". I had a total retard moment and posted D before C. My fault entirely. The party I talked about (my sisters 16th) wasn't actually that bad. The worst thing was the price of beer. Feckin hell. No wonder no one goes to pubs and we all just drink alone at home. Well, that and the smoking ban. Though I don't smoke.
Wednesday I wrote something I haven't written in quite a while. A poignant and deep post about the concept of endings. Which wasn't me declaring the end of this blog. Everything ends, and one day even existence will end. Endings aren't always the end though, and are often new beginnings. The death of one can equal the life of others (which is something I didn't totally go into outside of the circle of life. Oh well. There's about two or three paragraphs in there).
Thursday was another podcast between me and Bersercules. I have at least one more of these, and we hope to record more. If anything it would be great if this was how every podcast worked. I've heard nothing but positive feedback really, and me and him seem to bounce off eachother well. Now if we could go five minutes without innuendo and outright NSFW material it would be great. Though I don't want to suppress his art. Plus it's way too much fun. I still hope to record something with Nellievaughn and her friend Madeline, and with Shockgrubz. Really I'm open to having anyone on, and I'm pretty sure Bersercules is if you want to be double teamed. See I make dirty jokes even without him.
Friday I handled F. In this case, it was F for "fighting". A lot of you really were surprised that I had that kind of side to me, but I really do. I make myself sound a lot more torn than I actually I am I think though. Basically I told about how I used to have a history of anger and aggression, and I still have a lot of it, I just contain it better. It's the main reason I'm either nice or impassive. I really don't lie when I say that video games stopped me from killing people. I was able to work out my aggression through them, instead of through real people. The main point though was me recounting the time I got my ass handed to me in one punch to the face I deliberately took like a god damn fucking moron. Which I really was at the time. I've never really seen such a dumb smart person.
Saturday as you probably expected was another installment in Immortal Space. I'm considering rewriting all the new stuff I've written for it already, and probably will do. It's going to be fight scenes for a few weeks, and I don't know if I'm all that happy with how some of them worked out. This week though we had the totally manly reunion of Trent and Geoff in the fight club known as The 9th Circle. I also teased some things I didn't really deliver on, and now I want to deliver on them. What's the point in teasing what isn't going to happen?
Sunday I continued my apparent trend of Irish comedians. I think I'm out now though, with Dara O'Briain, the host of Mock The Week, who's pretty handy with the stand up himself. It was his routine on the "mixed marriage" of a Catholic and a Protestant. One of his most well know, and controversial routines. I think he did actually get in a bit of trouble over it.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've written too much , and my fingers hurt. It's quite apparent that I've been reading a lot lately, and not really writing. I hate that I seem to have to choose one or the other. In reading news though I read every Hunger Games book in seven hours. Ish. That is each book took seven hours to read. I didn't read three books in seven hours. That'd be awesome. I haven't read like that in so long I wasn't aware I could still do it.
Okay I really need to stop writing.
