A Pretty Good Week

Last week was pretty much nothing but posts caused by random bursts of inspiration. What this meant was that, overall, they were fairly awesome posts. It was a nice reminder of the good old days when I would have posts ready weeks in advance because I wrote several a day. I miss those days, and sadly I don't see this as being a return to them, but, for now, we can bask in their awesome might.

Tuesday was inspired by the thought that the next time there will be a proper full moon won't be until the year 2015, and how different the world might be by then. I was called quite the optimist over this post. I'm not optimistic. I'm horribly pessimistic and accept that my views and ideals are pretty much delusional fantasies. At least, they're not likely to happen in our lifetimes, because we'll be killed in the nuclear war. Out of which, the ideal world will be born.

Wednesday I came up with what I called the Grand Unified Gaming Theory, which is a lot better than it sounds. I basically compared life to video games, specifically open ended RPG's. Really, it's a lot better than it sounds, and borders on mind blowing.

Thursday was my latest podcast. This one felt right for once. I had fun doing it, I went off on too many tangents, and I recorded it using my laptops internal microphone, which turned out to be totally badass, and the right thing to do.

Friday was a bit preachy, but got nothing but positive feedback. It was about how we, as people, should not be blamed for the actions of our predecessors. White people alive now should not be blamed for slavery, and the Jews shouldn't have to apologise for selling out Jesus. In fact that was what started it, Jessica asking me that question. In a very rare moment she even commented when someone asked her if my answer offended her. Which it didn't, because it was her answer too.

Saturday was another Immortal Space update. In this one we were introduced to a new character, Lena. People seemed to like the character, but Fang didn't think the scene really fit. I think I've done too much stalling, and I couldn't work out a way to keep stalling, and so I'm advancing the plot. I think I have pretty much all of it worked out now, but of course everything changes as I write it. This wasn't even my original plan for introducing Lena. She will make sense though. Eventually. I think. Who knows really? Is it actually my job to?



And lastly on Sunday I was tired as Hel, and shared some videos of adorable little funnyman Russell Howard. I had suspected I had done that before, but thought that I might as well do it anyway.

Well, there you have it. I have no guarantees of quality for this week, but you'll probably enjoy the podcast. If I can do it right.


  1. I loved all of these posts Mark. Sometimes the best posts are the ones that are just random outbursts, in my opinion at least anyway haha.

  2. I enjoyed all of them too, Mark. We played a great RPG over the weekend that I'll be posting about during the week. Can you feel the suspense? LOL I love when inspiration hits like that and you can just crank out a few posts - not to mention the time to do it.

  3. A great week of posts. However, I don't like to think what the world will be like in 2015. There might be 10 Snookis or a whole army of Kardashians by then, and I just don't want to even think about that.

  4. I will have to check out this Grand Unified Gaming Theory more...sounds interesting.

  7. I'm glad I have this update, so I can jump right back in to the swing of your blog.

  8. lol what, nuclear war? highly unlikely

  9. I can't believe you used to write several posts a day! Anyways, looking forward to the podcast :)

  10. Hey Mark, did you hear about Jerry Lawler? So sad :<

  11. Did you mean you were tired as Hell? Or tired as Hel Linden the star of tv's "Barney Miller." Well, either way sounds like you were pretty tired.
