Remember when I opened a call for site contributors a few weeks back? Well… much to my surprise, GameSpite is apparently reputable enough now (or something, I dunno) that I received three dozen applicants. That’s really quite a lot, and I’m sort of at a loss for how to deal with so much interest. I’m thinking perhaps I should begin thinking outside of the proverbial box, maybe. So if you’ve submitted an application, please don’t be discouraged by the fact that I haven’t responded to you! I haven’t responded to anyone. I just haven’t had a chance yet. It’s been a stressful month. Once we’re through with Leipzig Games Convention — I get to wake up at 5 a.m. tomorrow to post news stories, which I will do diligently and without complaint because, hey, crap hours during LGC seems like a fair trade-off for not having to work home base during Tokyo Game Show — and Penny Arcade Expo, the good times shall roll! It seems September is, in stark contrast to April, the least cruel month. Please stay tuned for further developments.
Also: If you are going to PAX, please check the relevant forum thread to stand and be counted. Apparently people are going to meet up. I might join in if I’m free, although I’ll be serving as 1UP Point Man and thus may not be able to extricate myself from my duties. And I’ve got that protestant work ethic thing going, so I always toil away like a dutiful little worker bee at these things.
Additionally: My girlfriend has started up a blog chronicling her travails as an aspiring photographer. It turns out she’s a pretty good blogger! Hopefully she’ll give me some pointers.
And finally: My endeavor to sell off my worldly possessions proceeds apace. This week, the bulk of my DS collection is on the auction block. My stacks of things to get rid of are growing smaller, and it’s a pretty good feeling! Material possessions are dumb. Well, with a few exceptions, of course.
