So guys, how's it going?
I've just recently gotten into a Web Animation done by the awesome folks at Rooster Teeth, and directed by Mony Oum (the guy who did the Haloid video and the (in)famous Dead Fantasy series) called RWBY. It's basically an anime-styled twisted fairy tale type modern sci-fi/fantasy setting (similar in many respects to Final Fantasy VII), and with Monty Oum's trademark over-the-top awesome fight scenes. One thing I thought was funny was, thanks to Monty Oum sticking close to actual Japanese anime styles and themes, there were actually several comments on the YouTube posts of the videos angrily demanding that the "original Japanese version" be made available.
I've also gotten back into playing Civ III, and trying to finish up my Final Fantasy mod project.... March of next year will mark the 10th year since I started the project. :/
Also, my wife and I went to the Ren faire last weekend, dressed up in our Hogwarts uniforms (it was one of the 3 Halloween-themed weekends they have in October, next weekend is the last, and we plan on going with my wife's parents and brother's girlfriend), and we both got high-quality pewter Deathly Hallows pendants, and I also got another one of the Poetic Earth hand-made, leather bound journals, which I'm turning into the "Codex Minecraftia", which has lists of crafting recipes, floor plans for different types of structures, various redstone mechanisms, etc, all of which are written in "Ye olde bucherede Engliſhe".. (E.g. from the entry on Bows and Arrows: "Arrows can either be looted from þe remains of ſlain ſkellingtonnes, or made from Flint, Sticks & Featheres þuſly:")
