One last time

Well, since I think this is going to be my last year with pen and paper RPGs, this will be the last time I vote for the Ennies. My choices are a little obvious, as it's anything Star Wars Saga Edition related, including the Order 66 Podcast.

Here's to the nominees.

A change of outlook

Well, it's a week later, and the Jija lust is still there, but everything else feels different. Things feel like they're moving forward, rather than just running on spot, or worse, backpedaling into the past.
  • School looks like it's going to happen, once the red tape and redundant bureaucracy is out of the way.
  • My friend is "no longer angry", whatever that means. If it does mean that things can heal, then that's good, but I have my reservations about that. I'm optimistic, though, but it's going to be a long haul. We've both done a lot of damage to the other side, but I don't think it's irreparable.
  • I got most of my stuff back.
Anywho, here's to looking forward.

Raging Pheonix, Raging Heart

This is Tony Jaa's protege, Jija Yanin, who starred in the move Chocolate. (Not, Chocolat... very different movies.) The movie is called Raging Pheonix, and Twitch has the trailer.

I think I'm in love.

Huh? Wha?

I've noticed a trend recently, and that's of nerds throwing around the term 'satire' a lot. Like always, they totally butcher the word don't seem to grasp the meaning of it, but it's weird that it's just suddenly started being used.

I wonder why, as it's completely random.

Any clues?

You know, I'm finding that I'm just not into role-playing games anymore. I've labeled myself as a gamer for around 26 years now, and I'm just realizing that I really don't like it. I'm not sure if it's the people, or if it's the activity itself. I'd rather just play a video game to get fun out of playing a game, and I'd rather just sit around talking to friends to get the socialization . If the two need to be mixed, then a board game is more than enough.

So, I think that I'll run that Star Wars game as a send-off to myself. After that, no more.
