Here’s a quick heads-up on the site’s incoming content. I’m still not ready for whatever this blog’s official “re-launch” will be, so don’t hold your breath. But now that my job-hunting days are behind me, these incoming posts will represent an end rather than a beginning.
The FTL Story begins! I think!
At the beginning of May, I announced my long-secret project: an ambitious “FTL: Faster Than Light” story running exclusively on the Twitter-based platform Everyst. Technical difficulties delayed this start. As of writing, the first day has fully uploaded, so I assume matters will move smoothly from here. After each in-story day, I’ll discuss certain aspects of the writing process on my Twitter account, which you can follow here. Read the story by downloading the app here.
EDIT: The upload for this story continues as scheduled. However, contrary to what the team and I originally planned, a new part of the story will be added each week instead of each day. Part 2 begins on 5/27/2018.
One more Borgen Project article!
I’ll accompany this with some final thoughts about the internship.
The MyTrendingStories Saga continues!
MyTrendingStories sent me an email two weeks back. I’ve tried to publish the follow-up to my original expose since, but I’ve dug up a lot of crazy since. I plan to update everyone sometime in the next week. And speaking of sagas…
A review of “Solo: A Star Wars Story”!
My love of Star Wars takes effort to maintain after The Last Jedi. Everyone I meet IRL, friends and coworkers and family alike, love the movie. I even consider Episode VIII the third best film in the saga. It’s only online where I hear fans spew hate over Rian Johnson destroying their favorite fan theories. I feel a disconnect from the community, is what I’m saying. That’s what fuels my hype for “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” That movie’s gonna be a piece of shit. Great art can survive troubled productions, but every sign I see hints at a giant embarrassment arriving on screen this Friday (though whether fans admit that at first will be interesting). If you think I’m a mark for Star Wars, you’re right… I will love every cringy, stilted, faux-fun moment this movie throws up, and I’ll be laughing all the way! Punch it, Chewie!
