It was another productive weekend, and I had a lot of fun. My Kung Fu brother Jon came over Saturday after I was done teaching kick-boxing, and we played some Borderlands co-op for Silver Stag's YouTube programme CoOpted. We did far better this time than we did the last few times. I might be getting the hang of things.
Sunday, I had no plans whatsoever.
Can I tell you how lovely having no plans is? It's wonderful. I slept in for a long, long time and then went out to lunch with the Amazing Flatmate. After that, we did more work on our masks. We both decided that we wanted to attempt to make our masks into fox masks.
The Amazing Flatmate has already painted hers. I've only just finished shaping mine. Now I have to find some faux fur, and decide how I'm going to make the gold and silver wire designs on the fur. In truth, mine looks more like a pig than a fox, but it cannot be avoided. It was shaped to my face, and I apparently have a high forehead. Oh well!
While waiting for the mask to dry, I edited together this week's episodes of everything for Silver Stag Entertainment. The next episode of Nights at the Round Table will be up at midday today, and the week's episodes of SMC Awkwardly Plays and CoOpted are both uploaded and scheduled. I'm feeling very on top of things right now.
While I was waiting for the various videos to export of upload or process, I decided to glue feathers onto a silly little sculpture I made out of the left over papier maché stuff we had from our first session of mask making. It was just a vaguely bird-shaped lump before. Now I'm quite proud of that silly little sculpture. When it's done, I'll upload a picture of it.
Now, onto the main event. Friend and wonderful person Jen Desmarais is becoming a published game designer. The good folk at Renaissance Press are publishing her card game Blush. They'll be doing a Kick-Starter to help fund the publishing of this fabulous game, and currently have a casting call out. From their Facebook page:
How knowledgeable are you about human sexuality? Would you like to show off your knowledge, or maybe learn a little bit more? Or maybe just lend a helping hand in promoting Blush, our newest game by Jen Desmarais, which we will be launching later this year?
We will be filming a short session where we will be asking questions to anyone who would like to answer (and providing the correct answer afterwards, of course) in order to promote the Kickstarter campaign we will be starting in March.
So, if you'd like to participate, please come and see us this coming Friday the 12th of February, between the hours of 2:30 and 3:30 PM, at the main entrance of E building of Algonquin College!
We are looking forward to seeing all of you!
Right, I have a lot of work to do. I must do it.
