Artwork inspired by Atari and Ectofiend
Normally, right about now I'd be doing a post with pictures of all the crap I bought during GenCon, but there was no GenCon this year. They had an online event, but that wasn't really my thing--spending hours in the Exhibit Hall, seeing the costumes, chatting with friends we only see in person there--those are the things I look forward to. Sure, I spent a lot less money this month than I otherwise would have, so there is a slight silver lining.
Ah well, only 351 days until GenCon 2021. Hopefully.
I apologize for the second part of "Picture Imperfect" running so far behind; I feel like I owe you a bit of an explanation:
Some of it you already might have noted: I had spent some time in early June working on some code updates on my old, mostly-defunct Digimon fan site. I'd had that basically ready to go for the week before the release of Picture Imperfect, Part One. It was just a passing nostalgia for an old favorite provoked by a few videos popping up on my Youtube feed, and I'd really meant to do that update for literally a decade.
The part I haven't mentioned online is the fact that on Thursday, June 18, I was involved in an auto accident. Somebody rear-ended Ogre and I while we were on the way to pick up dinner; Ogre wasn't hurt, but I'm told I was bleeding profusely from my head and extremely incoherent. I don't know that for a fact: my memories fuzz out in the afternoon about an hour or so before I ordered the pizza, and don't come back "on-line" until sometime in the early morning hours of Friday, June 19th, at a local hospital. Though, you know, there was the wound on my head that was stapled up, so I totally believe that it happened.
I really didn't come out of it too badly: I was concussed and had a head wound, but no other physical damage. And no mental damage. But the vehicle I was driving, which had originally belonged to my later mother, was totaled. Thus, the last two months have been filled with doctor visits, waiting for insurance settlements, and the search for an affordable new vehicle.
Ogre, our Dad, and my two youngest brothers have been a great help during this time. Things do seem to be getting a bit closer to normal--as normal as it can be when we're still in the midst of a pandemic and a Presidential campaign where a shocking number of people are still planning to vote for the fuckturd who botched up the response to that pandemic--and hope I can get this story out to everyone before much longer.
Thanks, as always, for your patience.
