• Quick Update

    My health hasn’t been great lately. I guess it really hasn’t been great since I started this blog a few months ago, but I guess that’s the problem, right? It’s not really getting better. I have been to see a new doctor and he was really kind, caring, and listened to everything I had to say without jumping to conclusions before finishing. I told him how the sun makes me feel like shit, how I get these weird rashes, how my body always hurts, and how my eyes get really dry even in the Missouri summer (which has humidity so high that your sweat no longer evaporates to cool you).

  • Unfulfilled by Comet Overdrive

    Not much to say here, but I released a new album under the moniker Comet Overdrive. Give it a list here!

  • Quick Update: Life Could Be Worse

    I don’t have a lot to say right now, but I thought I’d just give a quick update about what I’ve been working on, what I’ve been playing, and how I’ve been feeling.

  • Macabre2D: Auto-Tile Maps

    I finally finished a Macabre2D feature I’ve been mulling over, developing, and restarting over the course of a few months now. It’s honestly not even that complex of a feature, but creating an editor for it sure was a challenge. Macabre2D now features Auto-Tile Maps. What in the heck is an auto-tile map, you ask? Well heck, I’m gonna tell ya!

  • The Boy Who Cried Wolf

    I got really good at making excuses when growing up. It was a habit that my parents nurtured until I was poised to become a sociopath. Now, later in life, I have some legitimate excuses for why I can’t do certain things, but telling someone “no” washes a wave of guilt over me. A wave big enough to engulf my entire childhood.

  • Struggler

    I grew up in a family that didn’t talk about their feelings very much. I don’t know if it had something to do with being Irish Catholic or a symptom of my parents’ narcissism, but that’s just the way it was. It’s a really hard habit to break, but lord knows I’ve been trying. I’ve been trying really fucking hard.

  • Being Sinful and Slaying a Spire

    This blog’s pretty new and I haven’t written about games yet, so I figured I’d jump in and just talk about what I’ve been playing lately. Onwards to the video gaming!

  • Making a Game Engine Named Macabre2D

    You may or may not know (if you’re here, maybe you even care), but I’ve been working on an open source 2D game engine since April 23, 2016. It’s called Macabre2D and it’s built on top of the wonderful MonoGame Framework. I just thought I’d collect some thoughts on Macabre2D, so here we go!

  • Goddamnit, I'm Tired

    I was feeling particularly frustrated with the state of things in America yesterday, so I grabbed up a simple chord progression and wrote/recorded a song in about an hour. It’s certainly not a masterpiece, but folk music is sometimes at its best when it’s simple and to the point. Anyways, here’s a demo for a new Comet Overdrive song titled Goddamnit, I’m Tired.

  • First Blog Site One

    I guess I’m officially starting up a blog/website. Been meaning to do this for a while (damn you, ADHD), but glad to finally get something out there. The brain-barrier to doing something like this gets a lot smaller once all the initial steps are out of the way. I’m using jekyll for this thing, which seems pretty dope. I’m a simple man, I don’t need a huge complicated behemoth of a website. Mostly just want a place I can journal up my thoughts and share my progress in a way that’s a bit more coherent than a twitter thread.
