I hate periods of uncreativity or any period where I feel I’m not involved with anything. I seem to have a muse that shifts between writing, artwork, music and games. If I catch the updrift at the right time, I end up with a bunch of songs, some art, a game or a bunch of blog posts.
Right now, I think the writing bug has come back, since the previous post I have written a few music reviews for the Warwick Boar and blog, but I feel I have some sort of duty to finish off my documentation of my year out. There’s still plenty to talk about, and plenty of photos to post.
In the meanwhile, despite not recording it, I’ve been doing a fair bit of art work with a borrowed graphics tablet, of which you can see some endeavours here or you can wait till I post the best bits later on this month. I also bought some acrylics and did a painting for my gran for Christmas, but as of yet no photo exists, that needs to be rectified…
I also plan on using one of the digital art pieces (it’ll probably be easy to guess which) for a little compilation of all the music I’ve accumulated in my ‘demos’ folder for the past year. Some you will have heard, some you most definitely haven’t, and all of it I can still listen to today and not cringe at. I’m calling it ‘A Winter Clean’ as I feel I need a new slate to start things off. I wrote a new song for the first time in what seems like an age today as well, hopefully in light of the fact that Afterburner have a charity gig in Robbins’ Well on the 26th and are entering the Battle of the Bands later on. It feels good to get the creative juices flowing once more.
And I say all this without even mentioning the fact that I hope to release a few games over the coming months, I’ve had all these ideas bubbling round my head I’m gonna burst if something doesn’t get done sooner nor later.
And a new website will have to be organised I guess… damn… it piles up…

Having a blog has made me appreciate writing a bit more, because it damn hard to find words sometimes to articulate exactly how you are feeling/what you want to say/or to describe anything at all. The last time I took an English (or any kind of arts) class was over five/six years ago, but that doesn't mean I can't write, right?
My parents have asked for me to send some postcards from dear old (or young, depending on how you look at it) New Zealand but I thought it'd be much more fun to write a letter, and send some proper pictures, instead of two lambs gamboling across a field, or some photoshopped sunset over an impossible skyline with a sentence on the back saying how nice the weather is (or isn't). I then thought, why not send everyone letters? Despite all the MSN/E–mail/Facebook/MySpace things that help us 'keep–in–touch', I haven't heard from some of my best friends in ages. It's also damn hard to actually talk about things in such a way because it's so inhuman with just fonts on a screen. So what better way than to write a letter!
I'm scouring my sources for friends addresses and I bought a pile of envelopes for the mass send–off. So here's my deal. If you want me to write a letter to you and I don't know your address, e–mail it me/comment/Facebook/instant message me and I'll send you one. If you want to send me one, here's my address:
The Railway Campus
26–48 Te Taou Crescent
There's only four things you need! Something to write with (pen, pencil, crayon, needle & thread), something to write on (paper, card, tissue, playing card), something to send it in (preferably an envelope) and a stamp (no alternative here, I dunno if the postal service takes debit card…). So, at the risk of sounding like a Royal Mail advert, write a letter, draw a picture, make some socks, send em off!
