Basement Break

This past weekend was ThunderCon, a local fan convention covering all magnet of wonderful geekiness, and at which the shop I work at runs a massive Game Expo (we probably make up at least half the con). I demoed Frostgrave, Batman, and ran Star Wars Armada events (many of which were demos themselves), plus ran an After Dark Gaming Lounge and worked the shop’s massive vendor space. It was a lot of fun, but pretty exhausting, and I of course got totally sick (I still have no voice a few days later). So last night I went down to the basement to do some laundry, tidied up a bit, and then settled into some Neo Geo time. Mark of the Wolves, Last Blade, and of course Turf Masters. Felt good.

This was a very close match. The next opponent crushed me…

I think tonight’s going to be reading and sleep. 


It’s been a really busy summer. No excuses or anything; I just haven’t had a ton of free time, and what I have had has  gone into my laziest hobby: TV.

Tonight, though, I sat down at my desk, and I put something on my tiny TV, and I cleaned some MVS cartridges. And it wasn’t painting, but it still felt kind of productive, you know? 

Hope you’re all having a great summer.
