So the meeting went well! We covered a ton of ground, and I ate enough Chinese food to render me clinically dead for the remainder of the evening. It was the sugar biscuits that finished the job; I just know it! So. Damn. Yummy. Sugary. Thank the mighty Thor, God of Rock (and thunder), for Alka-Seltzer.
The biggest news is that we are NOT going to the NYC festival. The reasons are many, but mostly so we can save our monies and have an epic showing at the next festival(s). As you can guess, money is tight these days, and we may need to show face at other festivals early next year, once we complete the pilot episode of “For Science.” Instead we’re going to spend that weekend camping, as is our early November tradition, and hit up the Machinima EXPO in Second Life the following weekend.
So, in lieu of our presence, we would like to go ahead and extend our best wishes to the participants. Each year shows a huge leap in Machinima’s growth, and this year will be no different! I for one cannot wait to see the results of this year’s event!
Internally we took a serious look at our progress and work ethic over the summer, and we were not pleased. So we ironed out a plan of action to help keep us both in high spirits, and working more consistently. Barry has all but been appointed to be our formal team manager, the cruel taskmaster that will give us ice cream when we work well, and kick us in the nards when we work… poorly? Right now the whole office is on ice packs until the doctor says otherwise. We also started an A capella soprano band. The opening number will be, Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!”
Avast ye scurvy dogs! Man the bilge me lad, she'a be takin on water like the clever beauty do take 'er suitor's coin!
