New Year, Same Old Excuses

Yeah, I have a lot of excuses for not blogging. I have kids. I have jobs (yes, plural). I had a crippling head cold that left me useless for a week because I’m a wimp. I also had an exceedingly busy semester (that I passed fabulously, mind you).

So yeah, I don’t always have time to blog. And I’m not going to set a New Year resolution saying “OMG, I will update ALL THE TIME. Like three times an hour, with video. It’s going to be SO GREAT your faces will literally ERUPT!!!”

No. I’ll write when I can.Tenatively, I’d like to update every Monday because that is easiest for me. But I still probably won’t do that every time.

However I do want to talk about the play I’ll be putting up called HERS IS THE HEAD OF A WOLF by my good friend Maverick Schmit. You can take a gander at the script over at the New Play Exchange (though you have to pay for membership).

I’ll also try to talk more about my writing, as several exciting projects are coming to a head, including The Wolfpack.

Also expect some renovations to the site. I’ll be updating and adding a lot of stuff to appeal to some professionals. The blog itself will remain as vulgar and sarcastic as ever, though.

I’ll make another post tomorrow to balance out this bland one, and also because I have fuck all to do. It will probably be about Fallout 4, which I have been playing intensively.

Until then!

See ya, space cowboy.

Holy Shit, This Semester Punched Me Straight in the Dick

Holy fuck, guys.

Holy. Fuck.

FFFFFUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKK.

So I’m two weeks into this new semester, and it’s already one of the roughest semesters ever. For one, I’m working close to thirty hours a week (when you factor in all three my jobs), I’ve got 16 credit hours, three hours of rehearsal a night, and roughly 100 pages of reading a night.

Fuck, man.

FFFFUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKK.

The three hours of rehearsal are for a mainstage show, a little devised piece based on Jonathan Swift. I’m also assistant directing a work called The Words Upon The Windowpane by W.B. Yeats – which is integrated into this devised piece.

I’m also working on a few side theater projects. I am directing a one act musical for ISU’s student musical theater group, and I got cast in the lead for two separate student works. Throw my kids and my wife in the mix, and I got a hell of a lot to work on.

Oh, I’m also close to finishing my music video for the band Vector Ruse.

I’m also on track to complete my novella by the end of the year.

So that’s all cool.

I know Labor Day is a weird time to announce all this, but hey it’s the closest thing I’m getting to a day off.

Uh, let’s see, what else…

Oh, I’ve made some sweet progress on my fantasy novel. If I keep it up (naturally balancing my crazy work schedule), I think I can have a draft finished in a year or so.

It’s looking like I won’t have a short story published this year, but it is what it is, I guess. I’ll keep trying though.

So yeah, I’m busy as fuck. I’ll be popping on every now and then to let you all know how near death I am. I also plan on talking about tech and gaming on here some more. As well as some film/video editing/theater stuff. Should be fun.

Well, fun for you. Death for me.

Adios, amigos.
