Here is a bit of a podcast schedule. Some nights aren’t recording/editing podcasts but are podcast related. Prep work goes into each cast and sometimes that means sacrificing my time for playing games. I know…but somebody has to do it.
Monday: The Final Score Left 4 Dead Monday – I didn’t get to play very long. Like 5 minutes. (spent some time with the family. I did hear the game went on without me and a great time was had by all.) Later on, I put the family to bed and I played some StarCraft 2 with some FrogPants alumni and friends. (You can hear some Smack Talk about that this Friday on The Final Score.)
Tuesday: 20 Questions podcast – Nick of the 20 Questions podcast asked me 20 questions. Apparently I set a new record for length of time. Beating out Scott Johnson’s previous record…take that Scotty. http://blahcreations.com/20questions/
The Final Score: I played about an hour of Team Fortress 2 and had a blast talking to all the gang who shows up every week. The server was full just about the whole time we played. It may be time for another upgrade.
Recorded Old School for this weeks The Final Score.
Wednesday: The Final Score – Woke up at 6am to play some Civ 5 demo so I could at least be semi prepared for this week’s episode of TFS. Play the Odd Mod for The Final score. This week is a game developed on the Unreal Engine. Looks like fun.
Comics Coast To Coast – Make show notes.
Thursday: Comics Coast To Coast – Recording my favorite comic related podcast.
Friday: Record The Final Score with Scott and Nicole.
and that’s it. That’s what a podcast week looks like for me.
Trying to use Corel Essentials. Used brushes to do this. Feel like I’m taking baby steps. Like starting all over again. and Oh Boy…are these not the colors I was using in Corel. Thanks jpeg.
My scanner really sucks. I tried scanning in some of my doodles from the day. I was out a lot and didn’t have my wacom so I just doodled on every scrap piece of paper I could find bearing down on soft surfaces like paperback books. Breaking all the rules and it shows. All of these were done with BIC pens and my scanner hates them. But here they are…blah…SHAME MYSELF INTO DOING BETTER!
proof my scanner sucks…at the bottom I took a picture with my crappy digital camera of one of the sketches and you can at least tell what it is now.
I hate drawing away from my art desk…cause I end up with crap like this. I post it anyway….
This week on the final score we discussed some crazy law talk about video games.
First up was the “You don’t own it” law between an Ebay seller and Autodesk. The Ebay seller was selling a lot of used copies of AutoCAD and Autodesk did not like it one bit. Just read their EULA. The judge sided with Autodesk and set a precedent that could be used against used game retailers. During the show we discussed this ruling to the extreme. All the way down to you and me not being able to sell our copies of future games that include EULAs that state the software can not be resold. You know that’s coming.

The second discussion was about a recent poll that says over 70% of adults with children would like to ban ultra-violent and ultra-sexy video games from being sold to minors. I agree. But the way it is worded it could easily be contorted to say…ban games that the government deems too violent or too sexy. That I do not agree.

I talk about the Team Fortress 2 mod: PropHunt. Basically Blu team are Scouts who look like props (control points, chairs, rocks and etc) and must hide from the Red Team who consists of all Pyros. There is a lot of time spent hiding. As a result, there is a lot of time for the Blu team to SMACK TALK!!
