The end of an era...

The first post was made to this blog, the Giant Pachinko Machine of Doom, on March 11th, 2004.

I intend for this to be the last. What better time to start over than on 1/1/11?

There will be a new WordPress-based blog going up, and this one will be kept as an archive, that I will port old posts over from periodically.

At any rate, I know I’ve been slacking lately, but there’s so much cool stuff I want to share that I haven’t been able to because this blog is a pain in the ass the way it is… I will have the new blog up in time for the 7th anniversary of the site, with a bunch of new stuff.

STAY TUNED!

And everyone enjoy the New Year!

So, it’s been like 5 months since I posted…

A lot has happened, and yet nothing has happened. That is to say, I’ve made remarkable progress on countless things, but none of it has reached any sort of completion.

I am DEFINITELY gearing up to relaunch the site though. I’m going to tear it all down and put up a brand spanking new Wordpress site with new content, and slowly start porting over the best of the old posts. (I will make the current blog available somewhere though.)

To keep things simple, I’ll have categories based on my interests and hobbies such as “Games", “Anime", “Arcade", “Roleplaying", “Writing", “Drawing", “Electronics", “Making Stuff", etc. as well as things like “News", “Life of Baka", and “Projects". Then everything will be tagged with further descriptors like “Rant", “Review", “How-To", “Discussion", etc.

I’m even going to add a category for food. Anyone who knows me personally knows I’m a pretty good cook, and I take it very seriously, and I have my own way of doing a lot of stuff. Even in the IRC channel, I often speak of food and how I go about making it. So I figure it’d be cool to preserve that stuff by sharing it on the site!

The site will have a cool header image that is a mosaic of random category images. And then when you’re viewing a category, it’s a random selection of the images for that particular category. I’m also going to come up with a script that makes the frontpage take any link that is meant for this old blog, and either pass it on to the archive, or redirect to the reposted version if there is one.

Anyway, I promise that I’ll do my best to have the new site ready-ish this month! That way, it can be up and running just in time for my hosting to be locked for non-payment. -_-; Yeah, I owe $120 right now for a year of hosting, and I have no idea how I’m going to come up with that this month. orz

Cleaning house...
 
  

11/14/09 @ 10:28:38 pm, Categories: Site News, 67 words, 958 views  

Just doing a little website housecleaning tonight…if only it were so easy to clean my apartment. ;[

I have pretty much all my obligations (Except re-paying Ed) out of the way, which means I’ll be free to pursue my own idle projects. First thing, will probably be to wipe this site. Maintain this blog in a frozen state somewhere, and make a new Wordpress blog for GPMoD.

RINGO MOGIRE BIIMU!!!

I’ve been swamped with work trying to get together the rest of the money I need to pay Ed_K back his more than generous loan.

It’s closing in on all sides! I’ve totally fallen behind on anime and stuff. Despite all this I have a few projects that I hope to announce soon.

Also, at some point in the near future, I’m going to install WordPress in place of this blog, and eventually I’ll port of all the best posts. I know I haven’t been posting a lot here lately, but I’ve mostly been microblagging various day-to-day stuff via my Twitter, and I’ll have that integrated into the new site.

Hehe, all day I’ve been listening to the Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei and Zan Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei ops. ‘Hito toshite Jiku ga Bureteiru’ and ‘Ringo Mogire Biimu’ which are just insane and ridiculous songs, lol.

So, with the help of the great and mighty Edward_K, I was able to purchase a Wacom Cintiq 21UX back in October. I owe him huge and not just the money I need to pay back. It made a huge difference having it, and I wish I’d used it more in the last couple of months, but it’s been hard keeping enough open desk space. ;o

Last week I got the desk cleared off so I could sit down and really try and do something. I had a particular image in my head, and so I went about trying to execute it.

Now, let me just say, this is maybe the second or third time I’ve actually done more than a little doodle in…well, more years than I can remember…and the first time I’ve tried drawing a hand in any sort of detail, which is hard as hell lemme tell you. ;3

Anyway, enough excuses…

I’d say it’s turned out pretty good so far. Hand looks like crap though, and I’ll have to redraw it probably, since it doesn’t look like it’s gripping the gun tight enough. (Also it would probably be good to finish drawing the gun)

I would have absolutely no chance of drawing even THIS well if it weren’t for ComicStudioEX 4. It really is a miraculous piece of software, and actually makes me a better artist than I am, with all of its helpful drawing aids. I’d like to go into detail on some of that at another time. In fact, after I get set up in the new apartment, I wanted to do a podcast where I discuss the software. Prompted by a short discussion I had about it with my cousin when she was here the other day.

Anyway, practice practice practice!!!

That was weird. Got woken up at 4am this morning by the power coming back on… Seemed it was only out for a couple minutes at most, according to my mIRC timestamps. Looked outside, there were no signs of a storm or anything. Weird.

Anyway, I got some new HDDs today. A 500gb to replace the one in my RAID5 that went bad, and another to add more storage to my newer box.

I’ve been learning a lot about Drupal, I think I’m definitely going to use it for the revamp of GPMoD. However, first I’m going to use it for my new site. This new site will be the site for my various projects. I will unveil it when it’s finished.

The Week of a Thousand Things - Part 2
 
  

02/14/08 @ 12:53:00 pm, Categories: Baka-chan vs. The Anime Community, Life of Baka, Baka-chan on Anime, GPMoD People, Projects, 391 words, 1144 views  

So, a recent alliance between the GPMoD and a secret society that stands against evil in all its forms (Especially stupidity) Has spawned the idea of doing a 2D fighting game with characters based on our online personas and our respective communities’ in-jokes. I’ll have more to say about this project at a later date.

I really need to catch up on my anime… I haven’t finished Minami-ke or Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei, and now Minami-ke Okawari! and Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei are airing… Gundam 00 still sucks. Code Geass doesn’t return until April. The only thing I’m staying current on is Kaiji. I’ve been watching Triad’s subs with my father. He really liked Akagi… Kaiji doesn’t seem to appeal to him as much, but he still likes it.

Also, Evangelion 1.0 is the greatest thing to ever happen to the franchise, and perhaps anime in-general…but I’ll talk more about that in another post. (I swear to fucking GOD, I want to go to Japan just to SEE it in the theater!) It doesn’t come out on DVD and Blu-ray until late April… I have plans to make that my first hi-def purchase… And then I will write a fansub script for it. One that is in no way based on the original US translations… A completely new reinterpretation of the dialogue based on intense study of the background and mythos of Shin Seiki Evangelion, (This from someone who named their computers ZEROGOKI, SHOGOKI, and NIGOKI, on workgroup EVANGELION, hooked up with Blue, Purple, and Red ethernet cables…) and conforming to an ideal of ‘accurate translation at any cost’. People don’t know what the fuck is going on? Tough shit, you obviously don’t know something that you’re SUPPOSED to know. Read a fucking book.

I am serious about this. I am sick of all these half-assed translations on OFFICIAL DVDS, and ADVs crap releases. I am going to do this, and deliver them the goddamn script with the warning that if they alienate the intended demographic for EVA 1.0 with a shit sub, there is little doubt they will lose 90% of all sales of the movie to hi-def rips of it on bittorrent. They need to learn once and for all.

I’m sure you all remember how I used to have google ads after the first couple posts… Well, I think that only ever made me like $11.04 xD On the other hand, Play-Asia has made me at least a hundred bucks or so. And I haven’t really been pushing it at all. You also all probably know that I can always use the money…

That said, I’m going to be adding an advertisement system to the site with the next wave of updates. There will be a banner at the top of the page, a banner between the latest posts and the collapsed posts, and some affiliate buttons down in the links area.

Basically, this is how it is… I will NEVER advertise a product or service I wouldn’t use myself. (Or at the very least, something I think is really good, even if it’s not quite my thing.)

Either I find a site or product that I like or approve of… Or they send me a sample for my evaluation, and I dig it… Then they offer or I sign up for an affiliate arrangement of some sort.

So there it is.

To potential advertisers:
Basically, what I said above. If you want me to pimp a product or service to my community, it’s gotta be good enough to either be something I’d use, or at least deem good enough for my people. Seeing as how I’m a poor struggling artist…your best bet is to send me something to evaluate (Goods), offer me some kind of try-out (Services), or otherwise make yourselves known to me. (Sites, etc.) Products or gift certificates for GPMoD giveaways are always welcome too.

Our demographic looks like this: fairly hardcore gamers and anime connoisseurs, pretty much all of whom are also serious computer geeks, and several of whom, myself included, are creative types with certain high-end needs.

Also, any webcomics or other sites of gaming/anime-related interest are welcome to offer link swaps.

Projects.

There are several projects I have in mind for this site. As I’ve said before, one of the things I am going to do is move all discussion of anime and videogames to the GPMoD Magazine blog, and this blog will be reserved for my day-to-day tribulations, rants, and general site news.

I am also considering recruiting members of my little circle of interblag misfits to write about stuff for the ‘magazine’ site. It is afterall, an archive for the GPMoD ‘Society for The Study of Modern Visual Culture’. I will also seek the opinions of the others for anything I talk about, and include their thoughts on the subject.

Very soon I will reveal my personal studio, which will be dedicated to projects of mine such as games/anime/manga/etcetera that aren’t necessarily related to my more official commercial entity.

I haven’t quite figured out what to do with the GPMoD Radio site, because I can’t figure out exactly how to do what I want to do with it… A lot of what I wanted to do revolved around the kinds of conversations I have on IRC, discussing anime and videogames, and debating things…but none of the people I do this with live within 300 miles of me, so I’m sort of at a loss as to how to do it without everyone having to buy a nice mic and audio setup like I have. (Not that it was all that expensive…)

Oh well. I’ll figure it out eventually. 何とかあるさ。
