Oh frak...

I've done it. I have actually done it. I have resubbed to EVE Online. All because a Diablo2 speedrunner I follow on Twitch and Youtube (MrLlamaSC if you want to  know... go follow his stuff, he's amazing!) started playing EVE and was asking a million questions per second and I, the bitter old vet, was answering each one and basically taking control of Twitch chat. And then a viewer gave Llama 1 million ISK and my brain immediately went "pfft! I can do a shit-ton better". So I bit the big one, downloaded the client, fired up and sent Llama a cool 50mil. And then, seeing how gimped my soon-to-be 110 million skill point character was, I said the old FUCK IT and got myself three months of Omega clone time. Will I keep playing after that? Well, never at the rate I did back when I started and had tons of free time, but I do plan to fly a bit.

As for this blog... I haven't updated it in 3 and a half years but it's always been there in the back of my mind. I was always thinking "should I turn it into a general blog? or a drumming blog?" But in reality I've only posted here when I was playing EVE. Well, the game is running as I write this, and I've already received an in-game mail from an old corpmate from the BOZO days!

So, here's to going out there looking for trouble, finding it, and getting blown to smithereens! That night I helped Llama we had a small fleet running just to show him the ropes and I already managed to lose a Stabber (I fully blame my 4 year absence and my uncustomized overview) to three Shadow Cartel players so I'm on par for the course :D

If you can read this, thank you for still following me after all this silence, and who knows, maybe we'll cross engine trails somewhere in New Eden !!!

Fly Dangerous !!! (sorry Frontier Developments, I said it first !!!)

Yes it's been a long time. Yes I've been busy with things other than EVE, and other than games even. This winter I pushed my drumming to the limit with my drumline, going even as far as playing my own drumkit with the drumline. And one does not simply do that without ungodly amounts of practice. Therefore, no gaming, no blogging, and only flams, drags and paradiddles.

As the drumline is taking a short break before the start of the CFL season I am also about to move house, so yeah, I feel like I no longer have any control over anything even resembling a schedule. But me being me I do find a way to put some gaming in and am even subbed into EVE at the moment, though I'll admit that apart from skilling I'm not doing much because playing EVE on a tight schedule is an impossibilty for me; and I don't want to hear from anyone with advice or anything of the sort. I can't. Period. But as I slowly skill up for my suitcase Nidhoggur, here are some other games that received my attention:

- Trackmania2 Stadium: while I don't think I'll ever be competitively fast, I found a lot of interest in building competition tracks. Maybe I can bring down the pro players to my level :)

- Kerbal Space Program: because rockets and MOAR BOOSTERS!

- Skyrim: I still check out new mods and take the occasional romp through the countryside.

- Quake Live: because I need to check once in a while if I still got it. I do >:)

Anyway, here's to hoping I get some handle on my play time; yes playing drums is tons of fun but there are some times when it starts to feel like a chore and that's never good.

Fly more than I do
