Dear Abby Martin,

This was originally supposed to be a post on my frustration of the whole anti-Muslim thing. My fears and what not. Not with Muslim people, but with people who are trying to convince me that we’re on the verge of war thanks to the “decline of Western Culture”, and to think that compassion for other humans is foolhardy.

Then, last night, I watched your recent Empire Files video on Steve Bannon.

Keep up the good work. I’ve been a fan since your last couple of years on RT. You’re fighting the good fight with great journalism, and I’m grateful! Stay safe out there.

Talking about My Attitude – …Stammering about

Here’s an update my attitude post-The Rabid Whole. I felt compelled to do this one since I was thinking about how sour I sounded at the end of the Part 3 of 3 of Being In A Rock Band video.

More footage of Tearaway Unfolded.

The track “Options” made by myself. Just a ditty I made ages ago, that I don’t see being anything more than it is already.

I love “Tearaway Unfolded” for PS4!

I haven’t been able to stop playing “Tearaway Unfolded” since I downloaded it from the PlayStation Network. It’s free this month for PS-Plus members.

At first glance, I thought this game was going to be a pretentious hipster-game, and with the term “crafting” put in a lot of big titles these days, I thought I would take a pass. Thankfully, it’s definitely not that and so much more!

My “messenger” whose gone through many changes. You can customize virtually any feature they have using the presets, or draw your own!

 

It’s a platforming adventure game, where the entire world is made of construction paper folded and shaped into familiar things. The basis is that a hole has torn into the sky and ‘scraps’ have invaded infecting the world with dull newsprint. You play as ‘the messenger’ who is controlled by ‘YOU’, and you use your light to fix the world, make tribal people happy, and hypnotize and defeat scraps with the shine of your light.

Along the way you will meet characters what want things added to them, like a crown, moustache, or symbol to display.

I thought making a simple “V” for a victory badge would suffice…

…then I placed it on the Warrior Princess Squirrel’s helm.

 

You can take photos at anytime with your familiar selection of filters that you would see on any smartphone app. You can even do animated gifs.

 

Not to mention, you can use the PlayStation app on your phone as a second screen of sorts, take pictures from it, and it will upload to the game and texture the environment with that photo! This is great if you got a friend with you who will mess around with it as you play the game.

This is just the creative stuff!!!

The game-play alone is really fun, with stages that are game mechanic focused the more skills you learn. Some combine these skills with some neat results, or even just leave it open to you to decide how to approach it.

Also the use of the touch-pad on the PS4 controller has been implemented so well, I think this is the only game that ACTUALLY USES IT outside of just pressing the touch-pad button (at least in any other game I’ve played so far). It’s the primary button where in this game you draw, swipe, press, and flick. So good. So fun.

I don’t see anything wrong in this game that no player would like. You have be a person with no imagination, and a real square to not enjoy this game at all. I haven’t finished the game yet, but I recommend it to any PS4 player.

Is this a review? It is now. 5 cowboy hats out of 5 cowboy hats. Now I’m gonna go and draw a cowboy hat and put it on my messenger…

P.S. When you meet the Gopher who asks you to give him a new look, he’ll ask you to carry him along to his house for a prize at the end of each journey. So far I’ve been unsuccessful as each time I’ve met him he’s fallen to certain doom. I named him Horny Gopher (though his horns look like a moustache where I placed them).

Talking about Being Creative

Trying to talk about the creative things I’ve done in the past, and what’s to come for the future. If you listen as far as my cat purring at the start of this, I thank you!

Playing “Tearaway” for PS4. Boy, is this a really cute, and fun game!

Being In A Rock Band (Part 3 of 3)

 

The 1 hour finale of my story of being in The Rabid Whole.
I talk about the period of about June 2013 to the end of 2014, and my thoughts on the end, and what I think we did wrong.

I realized that I hadn’t explained why I’ve been getting my leg infections. I’d been through radiation tests, tons of blood work, and samples of the swelling pus that would appear from my leg, and nothing came up that was wrong. My doctor said if there is nothing it’s “idiopathic”. To me it’s the physical manifest of stress, and unhappiness. Thankfully I hadn’t had an outbreak since about July 2015.

Photo of my reflection  from my adventure hat taken early 2012 on our way to SXSW when we stopped at a hotel, and everyone with us decided to go out for supper, and I stayed behind to be alone.
