Happy Monday! I've accepted a new job with WeGame.com
in San Francisco. I am the Creative Director in
charge of making machinima movies and providing
support for other machinima makers, which means
that at the moment I am being paid to work on
Inventing Swear Words 4! Check out WeGame.com,
which offers a great alternative to Fraps and
my blog post, which explains my role and exactly
what WeGame is all about.
And as I mentioned above, I am working on Inventing
Swear Words 4, the--you guessed it--wedding episode.
I have finished all the voice acting and am now
in the process of piecing the video together.
All our familiar characters make an appearance,
and I've brought back Mark and Candace to do some
voice acting for me. I have no set release date
yet, but my goal is to get it done before Valentine's
Day. I'll have teaser screenshots next week.
California is quite an adjustment, but it has
rained the past few days, making it feel much
more like Seattle for me. Hat is adjusting just
fine and having free reign of my apartment, since
I am at work all day. Which I'm sure suits him
just fine. Now I just need to find a shop that
sells freeze-dried crickets...
No big update today—I’ve
been super busy this week. I have, however, finished
the script for my new movie, and Mark and I knocked
out the majority of the voice acting for it. I
can’t give a firm release date for the movie,
but I will guess sometime in the middle of next
I broke nine-million views on YouTube
this week. My channel broke 500,000 views, and
I’m also the 80th most subscribed-to director
of all time on YouTube, at the moment. So that’s
encouraging. To those who have been messaging
me on YouTube, sorry, I’ll will get to them
in a few days, but right now I’m busy with
moving and all.
Which reminds me: I forgot to announce
that I’ve accepted a job in California that
will allow me to make machinima full-time. I’ll
make an official announcement with complete details
once I’m settled—maybe next Monday.
Ah, I’ll miss Seattle. But I hear San Francisco
is a pretty cool place to live too.
That’s all for right now—see
you next Monday, with a more substantial update!
started playing the game again. Since I have re-activated
my account, I've been inundated with messages--in
my mailbox and via tells--so I have felt it necessary
to write this post on my blog:
I've changed the News
Archive section. I added all news archives since
2004 and I've organized them by month, since August
of 2007. Here on out, I'll archive the news at the
end of the month, but let it accumulate below until
I've also limited the posts on the blog main page
to thirty days worth, and all older ones are archived,
in order to reduce page load time.
I've updated the shop! I revised the Staghorn
design so that it looks more like Staghorn, and
I added a new shirt with a quote from Oxhorn's
"Eat-eth me Pecan Pie!
I've recorded a new song called Wild
Mountain Thyme. I was inspired to record it
after hearing a version by The
Brobdinagian Bards. It is a Scottish folk song.
I sang the song and played the tin-whistle--though
not at the same time, of course. You can listen
to it in the MP3 player below, and you can read
the lyrics here.
See you next Monday!
been exploring a new job opportunity that will
allow me to make my Oxhorn Brand machinima full-time.
If this works out, I’ll be able to release
new movies even faster than I do now—which
is pretty darned fast! I’ll fill in the
With everything that’s gone on this week,
I’ve been able to make only one new store
design. But it is one I should have made a long
That’s it for now. Next week
I hope to have some changes made to the site and
more shirts designed, but that all depends on
what other events happen this week. See you Monday!
Here are last week’s blog highlights:
