Everything is mildly disappointing, including the new Lameframe Store!

I don’t think my blogs usually stick to one subject, this is no exception. I’ll jump into the most interesting news, my realisation that everything I buy is mildly disappointing. Being a British stereotype that I am, I accept this as normal and politely move on with my day. I never even realised it till today. I buy lunch with reasonable frequency during the work week, I eat it and forget about it today I had a revelation. “This is nice bread” it’s crunchy and doesn’t taste like damp sponge, “what a delight” exclaimed the monocled man in my head. The filling was average but god damn I was impressed with the non day old bread and then I thought, why am I impressed? because this isn’t a disappointment? This sandwich is palatable, colour me impressed, and that’s when I realised for months and months I’ve just been mildly disappointed with near enough everything I’ve brought. My lunches always suck, meals out are expensive and disappointing, my recent headphone purchases:

  • On earphones, good sound too tight & hurt my ears.
  • Hook-over earphones, comfy as fuck, shit sound quality.
  • Over-ear-phones, too big and bulky.

My 15 year old headphones recently broke, and I love them and just want them back. Nothing is as good. Blood hell I’m an old man. I’m contemplating a new vlog series, mildly disappointing reviews: the story of everything.

More Exciting News

The Lamefame store is open! see the shop tab at the top? that’s a shop. it’s got some nerdy goodies in it. Shipping is free over £15 for most countries. There’s a few items which are really crap see if you can spot them (hint:they have crap in the name). So the shop is a bit of a way to help support our Lameframe activities, money will go towards out streaming and video editing setup the first purchase will be a second pc for Kat and me to stream together. So if you are in the mood pick up some merch and help support Lameframe.

Getting Stuff Done, or not really.

If there’s anyone that reads these blogs and I’m a little dubious of that, you might have noticed that my attentions are all over the place, I spin a lot of plates. This usually means things don’t get the attention they need to be complete/work properly.

Things that make you.. alive

There’s obviously the things that are vital: Family, food and work to support them, these things have to be taken care of. Work is currently on a bit of an upswing, I’m in the lucky position to be my own boss, so I can manage my time in a non conventional manner and work whenever works best, morning, Read more

All over the place, as usual

Writing a story now… Youtube’s been on hold for a few months while I finish the streaming rooms renovations, made some good friends on twitch but only stream about once a week, didn’t stick with the game building very long,  gave up on the animation pretty quickly, stuck with the drawing for a while and improved a bit, but haven’t done that in ages. Yep sounds like business as usual for me.

Catch up with everything we’ve been up to.

 

 

 

Oh and I’ve learned to make awesome bread.

See bread, awesome

See bread, awesome

Any-who all these odds and sods, writing, making games, getting back into animation (I have a degree in it so shouldn’t be too hard) , getting good at drawing characters, was all towards the same goal of telling the sci-fi story that’s been bouncing round my head for the last 15 years. Ever since I started my first webcomic back in school I’ve been building this. I’ve probably posted the odd snippet or character sketch before, but I’ve actually been building a wiki of sorts behind this blog for a while. So after bouncing between pretty much every medium and moving on I’m now onto writing it as a story.

It’s a complete mess currently full of spoilers and essentially brain spew. I’m just trying to get things in order, at one point I had 2 complete walls covered in post-its just trying to get the organisation of the military sorted out. I’m rambling now, read my first bit of actual story writing here. it start about half way down the page, still a mess but I think it’s a start. Ordered a load of weight too gonna pick that back up again. Is this normal is this what normal people do, start tons of different thing and drop them after starting to make progress, who knows come join me on a stream some time.

New Site

So I was getting really frustrated with the old drupal based site, So I rebuilt it today, WordPress all the way go take a look it’s awesome.

It Begins Anew

I’ve run lameframe in one form or another for about 10 years, and apart from a brief period when i decided not to renew the domain and lost the .com it simply existed with no real input or work. I now mean to change that by spewing my ideas here in whatever form they come, I shall finally be writing down my sci-fi saga in an developing form, posting work in progress cgi models, character profiles information on the world and technology, just generally keeping my thoughts in order. I might even have a space for my portfolio finally.
