Wrapping up the year

Looking back on 2019 and attempting to evaluate my self-worth based on my creative output is a bad idea but I'm doing it anyway! Probably my biggest accomplishment was the company re-brand, but the stock market game was more fun, both to make and play-test. There are still ways you can manipulate the market in order to win, but I wanted to leave that mechanic in the game, for realism.

I also experimented with doing a Go live stream this year and worked out the kinks, some technical, and some with the format itself. 2020 is going to bring a different flavour of stream as well as more Go content and tools, but this was a solid start.

That was pretty much it for this year – not my most prolific, but now I've got some bigger projects in the works, and I'm carving off more time for creating. Please help by purchasing a Lifetime Membership!

Rebranding the whole company

It seems like just yesterday I created my small comedy publishing company, but in fact it was back in 2011, almost 3,000 days ago! With the changing tastes of the market over the years, the business, too, has had to change – but never as drastically as now. I've done a full re-brand, and I'm pivoting to an entirely new model.

Instead of a comedy company that occasionally produces Go content... it's a Go company that also produces comedy.

I present to you Mirth Turtle Media.

Summer forever

I'm burning the electric blanket & throwing away the sun lamps because it's SUMMER! I've started in on a new piece of writing, I'm updating the stock market game with more interesting financial events & bug fixes, and even finding time to marinate my favourite meats in specially selected balsamic vinegars. Summer is here and it's never going to end.

Hibernation Station

Every year this happens! It gets cold and dark, and I'm like, "I don't want to work on anything big!" So February comes and I've just been dithering about on small projects, and then I look at the calendar, and fly into a panic about my rapidly vanishing life, and I vow to do better come spring.

But this year I have an excuse (other than Seasonal Affective Disorder) because I'm also working on re-branding the company! Mostly it feels administrative at this point, but once it's official I'll be showing off an overhauled webstore, new graphics, etc. Next couple of months for sure.

But right now: here's a game about the stock market you can idly play.

Metal that's also funny

Sometimes, concepts are just funny to some people. For instance, my brother has this thing where he thinks people in oversized mascot suits smoking inside the suit is inherently funny. He's not wrong.

I bring this up because I believe that precious metals have an inherent comedy about them. Don't get me wrong — I think noble gases are pretty hilarious too — but metal is easier to print on, so it's more feasible as a creative medium. I've also got a thing about magnets. The concept of them just kills me. I can't explain it very well.

Anyway, I've got a new metallic comedy project that involves magnetism if you want to understand better.
