Find a Vein

I got onto the Beta of World of Warcraft. I’ve never played a MMO before. Hell I remember when they were called MMORPG’s. Anyway I am now an online game junkie.

There is some very impressive technology in this game. Terrain generation never looked so damn pretty. I’ve never thought that displacement maps as levels were a good idea. But the way that blizzard has reinforced the world with props is very impressive.

Most Impressive

Friday 2: the quickening

It’s Saturday and up my end of the room it’s quiet. Ahh the post Beta glow. Your still stunned from the work but your very scared of breaking anything. And you still have to work on a Saturday but you don’t really have to do much. Very strange.

Mostly I just think I missed something. That will fade. It always does.

Well my birthday present to myself turned up. I did end up getting this one. Beautiful little thing. I found some film in my fridge from 7 years ago. So I thought I’d give that a run. It is pre 9/11 film as tony pointed out. More innocent.

As for the photo above. I pass this on the way to lunch. Like most street art, it’s been torn and fucked up now. But she was a pretty little thing.

WORK WORK WORK…..STOP

Very slow at work at the moment. The servers are down cause we have a virus. What better time to update. Although I can’t really think of anything to say.

I paid off my air conditioner this morning……. I’m going to buy a couch….
Birthday’s coming up and I’m gonna buy myself a camera. I think I’m going to get this one… Yeah I know it’s a film camera. but It’s my birthday damn it.

Soon…

Well the exhibition went well. If you missed it here is a picture of the main room.

impressive huh. You can see the larger version of the pic in the TimeLight folder in the photo section. And If you want to know I’m still not sure If I’ve sold anything. But I have a feeling that I won’t be buying that sexy 10 by 8 camera that I had my eye on. If you get my meaning…

But my main focus at the moment is the game. Fingers crossed, we’ll go Beta on Friday. If this means nothing to you, don’t worry; it’ll all be over soon. Then maybe we’ll have a little chat about the inner workings of the billion dollar computer games industry. Then again I’d rather talk about this holiday I’m looking forward too….

it’s done. it’s in the can…

Well it’s friday. Tonight is the opening. I’m working the weekend. Beta is on Wednesday. And paranoia of unknown faults in the level is setting in.

I hung the show yesterday. It looks great. All I have to do now is show up and make sure that my friends don’t drink too much. That’s going to be the hard part…..
