Overdrive's State of the Self Address!
August 20, 2006

So, anyhoo, when I was in the office today making up a couple of hours that I was behind for the week (by writing a review....I'm a good worker guy!), I realized I haven't done anything for or with the site in a couple of weeks beyond a drunk message board post or two.

It's not my fault, so don't blame me. The last couple of weeks have been interesting (in the Chinese curse, "may you live in interesting times" sort of way). Some ugly personal issues came to a head recently, forcing me to step into action to put an end to a lot of bullshit. Combine that with my work schedule being sort of rough over the last few days and I was pretty mentally exhausted, with no ambition to do much more with my free time than hang out with a couple co-workers I'm friends with and people one of them is friends with and get wasted.

Anyway, I still plan to be doing a lot of that. Now that I'm sorting through all the bullshit in my life and removing what wasn't working, I'm noticing I have a lot more fun being sociable with people, as opposed to just locking myself away in solitude. But, I'm also gradually refocusing on other things. I finally finished a review for Power Strike II (too lazy to html-link it at this time). That game didn't motivate me at all to write, so I put it off forever because I knew, especially with all the other shit I've been going through, under that circumstance, my review would suck ass. But, I finally came upon a weird gimmicky way to review it that, while it might still suck, at least is an original way of sucking as opposed to just mailing in boring shit to show I'm still alive.

Then I have my ABC game and my AWESOME UPCOMING review of Rule of Rose for Sept. 12 (and thank god I have 'til Sept 12 before I can get RoR up due to that being its release date for people not as cool as me), as that's the only reason I'll have the time to get my ABC game finished). As well as other stuff at random times between now and the end of time.

That is all.

PS: Genj, it's nice to see you listening to stuff like Iron Maiden and In Flames now. You're starting to take on manly interests (at least as far as music goes) and that pleases me.

I listened to a lot of manly Fiona Apple this week.

Maybe within 10 years we'll at least have him listening to Ulver's acoustic album.

And good luck with whatever shit you've got going on. May you live in interesting times.
