Holy crap batman!

So, wow, been busy that's for sure. Not to worry though, I still have plenty of time for Barney's Mind and am currently working on Episode 13 (and thankfully this one is going a LOT smoother than Episode 12).

Anyway, what have I been up too... Well, I played paintball last weekend, that was AWESOME, tons of fun. Have some good pictures if anyone wants to see it. Umm, also starting up a Dungeons and Dragons game (shut up, I'm a nerd and proud of it). Works been busy too but that's always good.

Alrighty, here's the big thing. Barney's Mind is almost over! OMG! I didn't really realize how close I was until last night when I played ahead and I'm guessing that there is about 3 episodes left until the half hour finale. Holy crap, that's crazy!

You might also notice that I'm taking longer on each episode, this is more for myself so I don't get burned out when the finale comes along and it's definitely helping on Episode 13. I only just started working on it but I'm coming on to this with a much greater desire to spend lots of time on it. Episode 12 I really wanted to do it but every time I did some work on it I would stop after only a couple hours cause I would get stuck on something and then just get burnt out.

Ok, so I'm thinking that I'll do Episode 13 and 14 and then I'll see if I have enough material left to do Episode 15 or not. I'll let you guys know when I start working hardcore on the finale with a trailer/preview of the episode (this will be different from the trailer that I have already as I already have about 1/3 of the dialog recorded for the finale so I should be able to post some bits of dialog and such from the actual finale).

Speaking of the finale, I'm so excited for this! I've saved a good part of my better ideas for the finale and I can't wait to have you guys watch it. Oh, and yes, the finale will have my side of Shephard's Mind - Episode 12 (where him and I talk through a locker).

I guess while I'm addressing frequently asked questions, after Barney's Mind I am going to do another Mind series. This one is going to be a bit different than Barney's Mind though. I'm going to be doing the Marine campaign from Alien vs. Predator 2 and, to anyone who have played that game, it's scary and gruesome. This is awesome because I personally feel that my personality will be a lot better suited for a more serious character and setting. Don't worry, it's going to be full of humor and such but it's also going to have a fair amount of serious points and scary points. I wont spoil anything but let me just say that since this is the only game to ever actually startle me and possibly even scare me I'm going to play that up as much as I can. I'm not really sure if the scary parts of the game will carry over well to someone who's just watching and not actually playing but we'll see.

Oh, and I was going to try different accents and use a voice changer to mess with my voice so it didn't sound just like Barney but, after watching the intro I've discovered that the few times the main character Harrison (aka "Frosty") talks I sound almost just like him! Don't worry, I'm going to be voicing over his lines so that people don't get confused when watching but, I guess I wont actually be doing much to his voice. Oh well, that's cool and makes things a lot easier on me (I'm not very good at other accents anyway, though I can do a pretty good southern drawl).

Anyway, sorry, didn't mean to write so much. If you've managed to read it all the way through then give yourself a gold star (or at least a doughnut, that's what I'm having right now). I'm going to get back to work right now, caio.

P.S. Whoever is the thundercats in the fantasy football league you better manage your team man, it doesn't even have an active kicker on it.

P.P.S. Not that it matters, I'm going to crush you anyway :P

P.P.P.S. Anyone else going to try out Monopoly: City Streets (free monopoly game using google maps)? I am, looks awesome.
