New update because we’re all going crazy

Hey people, I thought I’d give a minor update since several of you seem restless from the comments. Many of you can’t wait for another Freeman’s Mind episode it seems. The biggest reason I haven’t been working on it is because I haven’t had a place to record. At the moment I’m just staying with family. At Machinima.com, I could come into the office in the middle of the night and record it then. Right now everything’s in flux.

I noticed some comments claiming the reason I haven’t released anything lately is because I have a life. That’s incorrect. A lot of what I’ve been up to is hunting for a place to live where I can make noise for recording that I can also afford. You can complain all you want more Freeman’s Mind hasn’t been coming out, but the series isn’t exactly known for Freeman talking in a hushed tone, so I’m not going to make new ones unless I can do them properly. The good news is I just yesterday found a place, though I still need to take care of things like internet hookup, phone service, etc., but I should be getting back on track on soon. Once I’m set up in my new place, my plans are to make a new FM episode as soon as possible, then continue work on The Tunnel, then see where things go from there.

In the meantime, I’m still trying to keep on top of many other things. The website needs work. A new system for managing subtitles is still being established. Machinima.com has deleted more episode download links at random, which I need to put back up. I’m way behind on responding to emails. My files are a mess and very disorganized from working on two different computers for The Tunnel. I still have a ton of animation work to do for The Tunnel. There are some minor map fixes needed for The Tunnel. I’m trying to find time to research new animation techniques and technology that may help things go faster in the future. I need furniture. I’m probably going to need a car again. My headphones are falling apart. At the moment I have no health insurance. I’ll probably die alone. My motherboard chipset fan is making this buzzing sound that makes me want to take an axe to it. The pilot surprise episode is completely on hold at the moment. I’m facing new issues regarding my use of game soundtracks. I’m running into new problems with the Source engine. I’m also busy with stuff that I’m keeping under wraps for various reasons, but I think you’ll be pleased with in the long-term.

I know it’s easy to think that I’m just slacking off and not working on anything, but the best way I can describe things is that I’m retooling everything so that I can start becoming a mini machinima factory. I personally believe I’m going to produce more videos for 2010 than I have for any other year. If you don’t believe me, feel free to count up the most I’ve produced in a year so far and give me hell if I don’t meet that goal by 2011. In the meantime, chill. HL2 Episode 3 is late. Black Mesa mod is late. The Crossing is on hold. They Hunger: Lost Souls hasn’t updated in a year. SiN Episodes died. Many projects associated with the Source engine have a tendency to take for-frigging-ever or die. I’m trying, people.
