To put it all simply, and into one single sentence: I've had a lot to do. And (there goes the single sentence), I will continue to have a lot to do, for a period of time that is currently very hard to define. No, this ain't another declaration of a half-dead hiatus, but this ain't a promise of a review or two in the next couple of days, or even weeks, either. I have daily commitments beyond the usual scope, as I've recently returned to making music. A couple of months ago, the vocalist in a local band I like decided to leave the band after four years of service, and the guitarist - a friend of mine - asked me if I'd like to come for a try-out, and here we are. I'm not an official member of the band, at least not yet, but the future's looking OK, and I'll do my best to not cloud it up. But, that's not the real reason I've been so quiet, and it's not women either.
|If things get this bad, I'll worry. For now, I'm OK.|
In the last brief bit of news: the PlayStation, the very original model of the nearly 20-year old legend, is returning to my collection, courtesy of a friend who was actually planning to throw the thing away, with a little over ten games along with it. I couldn't stand for such debauchery, so I quickly stepped in after reading about his evil plan on Facebook. God bless that social porn site. Also, I got an original print of Lost Odyssey for the Xbox 360, found from a freakin' flea market, still in wraps, at the measly price of €5, to replace my re-issue. Actually, I didn't pay a dime for the game, it was rather a present or a donation, depends how you look at it. I was just rather stunned, since usually brand new games sold at the local flea markets for the usual flea market prices are sports or kids' games.
