jesus bastarding arsecheese i’m bad at remembering to do things. this place is in a sorry state. i’ve been thinking for a long while now that it needs a complete overhaul. cut the extraneous bollocks and move away from wordpress, for the simple reason that a popular infrastructure like this is extremely spamable.
that and i feel most of the downloads here could just be thrown on one page for “old stuff i’m not at all proud of”. i’d love to look into putting the really big sky soundtrack somewhere obvious for people to download but there’s complications with that.
my excuse for not posting here in exactly one and a half yonks goes thusly: i had that ungodly hours/0 hours job, i fell into a classic don’t-want-to-move-or-live episode which i have every now and then. when a site like this is left alone it becomes an ever increasingly daunting task to claw it back from the ocean of spam. also the concern that i have nothing interesting to say. umpteen updates of excuses for why i’m not doing stuff in a row doesn’t make for good reading.
the MrPineapple live band is still a thing. i’m still here, the guitarist came back, we have a new drummer who is a thoroughly cool bloke. we have no bass.
besides playing an embarrassingly large number of hours on killing floor (and offering my voice talents to tripwire for a laugh) i’ve spend the majority of the year doing naff-all. i toyed with a re-re-make of the MrPineapple game but hit a technical brick wall which i personally am not clever enough to work around. james’ latest game he’s been working on for an ice age and a half now is being scored by someone else. but my material might just make an appearance in there. tee and/or hee.
my friend andy and i are working on a cute little platformer in the style of early 90s mascot games. think amiga/megadrive type feel. obviously i’ll do the music for it.
i have no idea what will happen with anything. so expect … err… thing. s.
