Haha Pokémon too, yes. I have been replaying a few games as of late.

You should really get back on that! Because it is grand. And it's none too hard to power through tbh. I've done it with series 1-6 three times over the last six months or so because of watching it with many different people who all need to be caught up.

I... need to get caught up on that. Alas, I don't have any time to spare!

Maybe I'll have to borrow some of your DVDs and dedicate a weekend to marathoning them.

I only have series 2 and 3 right now in addition to the mass of Classic but hopefully birthday money will be put to use on getting the rest of NuWho. :3

Ah just one ep a day or every other will get you through pretty quick~ They're like 12-16 episode series after all. :> And only about 45 minutes.

I tend to be bad at it as well. Usually I just start over on a thing what I dropped- like games and books and such- but since you are a few series in I don't know if that would be the best option? idk

Classic would do, honestly. I do have a nerdy brother who would probably watch them more than I would, though.

Thinking about it, I've got a cousin who's a Whovian who would be very interested in watching that who'll be going with my brother and I to Metacon, so I could theoretically marathon it that weekend when we're not at the con. Speaking of that, I've still gotta order their passes for that.

Also, Kura, is it true that the video game industry is a little too rough on employees? c: I'm gonna be a game designer myself when I grow up so I want to know what to expect.
Kura will answer later when she is at work, but it isn't rough on you, it is just a difficult industry to break into, in my opinion, due to so many people wanting to do it.

Wait - a man was found dead on the side of the road, and this creates traffic? Is it just people slowing down to get a good look or is there an actual reason this is causing disruption?

!! How did you know that I'd answer at work like this?!

No but it's true.. the games industry is insanely competitive. You have to keep up your skills CONSTANTLY, and just keep applying to places. Don't ever rule out the smaller studios because they can do amazing stuff- and sometimes they can be a better environment than the bigger studios- or you also can learn much more with a smaller team. Studios are usually looking for people with experience, so good credentials and doing an internship would help.

You just gotta keep working at the goal. So many people can't find a job like the first year and just stop looking. You also should be willing to move away from home.

As for designers.. yeah. They're like concept artists.. probably one of the most competitive roles to get a job for. I'd recommend honing both design skills and another set of skills so that, at least once you're in a studio (esp a smaller one) you can sort of ask for some more design roles and switch jobs within that company- then get experience and use that experience if you want to move somewhere else.

And.. no other pics with me right now. I have a busy night tonight so I will probably not be uploading them until Monday.

The industry can be hard on you if you let them walk all over you, or if you dont read the contract properly.
I know one guy who once got a $50 two-week paycheque because he was being paid for animation by the foot, not hourly.. and he was doing unpaid revisions. The again I know someone else in that same role who takes home loads.

Well, it's kinda a mutual way that we refer to each other, Andy.

And he is quite nerdy in his own right.

Did I already miss the Doctor Who topic? I really need to get back to classic so I can finish it before the next new season. Luckily I am surrounded by nerds who won't mind that at all.

Every time anyone in my family has any tech problems they call me.... It'll be "Wes, I need the internet fixed!" or "Why isn't Flash working? Wes, I need help!" . And then when I can't fix it they say, "Well, your the family geek, your supposed to know these things." So yeah, I'm pretty much the geeky/nerdy one in the family.

The only person that needs tech help in my family is my mother. She doesn't get it at all.

Speaking of technology, I found an iPod Touch today. :D
