Of course it exists. Nonexistence is not an acceptable option.

How are you doing, Magnulus?

I'm good, yeah!

I've been focusing on acting the past few years, which has been a lot of fun (and very frustrating at times). Built up a nice little showreel and am starting to get auditions for proper TV productions.

You can see the showreel here!

I did an advert for Lowe's Home Improvement (an american company) recently, which was fun. Got to play Andy Warhol! My main spot is in the showreel, but I'll link to it.
My 15 second invidividual spot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UHdH9fccBM
The full 30 sec spot with all the artists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XznR_UIpyB4

So that's what I've been up to! I was just having one of my regular "pining for No Man's Sky" moments yesterday and it made me think of Noctis, naturally. Who's excited for that game, eh?! I am on tenterhooks!

Actually Lowe's is a well-known chain of hardware stores in the U.S. They advertise frequently during sporting events (particularly NASCAR auto races- since they sponsor one of the cars, the driver is currently in third place in the standings). So that's a pretty good part to get.

As for myself, I'm in what could be described as semi-retirement. Which means when I work it's for nothing. But then again, that's a lot like when I actually had a job (the company went out of business after the owner died) except that was working for damn little pay. I guess I just rise to the level of my abilities.

I'm probably one of the last of the Noctis faithful. (Since I still have a Windows XP beast that runs it.) I would like to see No Man's Sky, but I probably won't have a computer that runs that one until sometime about 2020 If' I'm not too senile, when someone will hand me down their old computer that's capable of running it...by which time it will be considered an "oldie" game.

I am unemployed for years already.

I was freelancing, doing iPhone coding.

But my Mac HDD died yesterday.

I am screwed

If it's any consolation, Skinny, the PS4 will keep going down in price in the future, and you'll be able to get No Man's Sky for that.

Speeder: That bloody sucks, man, I'm sorry to hear that...

Hehe, nice spot in the commercial. ^^

I really like Lowes. I used to go there a lot when I did personal projects, but now I'm always tired and sick. Doctor keeps throwing antidepressant medications at me, as if it is some magical cure-all, but the pills just make me even more sick.

I've been spending almost every hour of my life at home, alternating between writing, reading, playing games, watching anime, and doing nothing at all because of my health problems. People say they envy me. Idiots. It sucks. I miss my old life. I miss not having my responsibilities and ambitions countered by physical and emotional pain.

But I have seen some great anime. "Steins;Gate", "The Devil is a Part-Timer", "Gosick", "Spice and Wolf"...

Regarding video games, I've most regularly been playing Guild Wars 2 (scenery video) and Shikihime Garden (one of my favorite cards). Recently I started playing Dust: An Elysian Tail (favorite track from OST) again. It's quite a pleasant platformer.

Now, back to lying down. ._.

I don't watch all that much television, but I did see the longer, multi-character version of the commercial Saturday evening. It aired during Treetop Cat Rescue, which is apparently a new show on Animal Planet, about guys with climbing equipment rescuing cats out of trees. >_>

Best. Show. Ever.

So yes, the commercial is on television now.

So... about 2020 then? : P

I watched through Attack on Titan the other week, which was pretty good. It may very well have been the feel-good anime of 2013, were it not for the parts where characters kept getting eaten alive by giants. The giants seemed moderately pleased about it though, so we'll count that.

The second half of the 25 episode season kind of sidetracks from the main plot a bit though, and ends with a "to be continued" type ending, that doesn't really resolve much of what you were hoping to find out during the first half. There's also less people-eating. There will apparently be a second season coming out next year though, so more people might get eaten then.

Here's a Trailer for the series, and it can be watched for free in standard definition on Crunchyroll.

I have actually been thinking that when No Man's Sky comes out, I'll definitely be livestreaming that on Twitch. So you guys can explore it with me there! Will probably be streaming Fallout 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront as well... Because... LOOK AT 'EM! So excited.

I really like the idea of Optimus, but getting it to play nice in my linux install has always been a pain.

On the plus side, bumblee/primus are a lot better than they used to be.
