  • A few weeks spent underwater

    It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. I’m sort of beginning to wonder what the purpose of it. The last few posts have been all over the map. Am I using this to disseminate things I find cool? Am I using this for commentary or musings? I’d like to use if for all […]

  • Passed Around

    I finally got this pay slip in the mail, after it was passed around for several weeks in Queen’s internal mail system. I thought I’d capture it here; it represents my educational experience with shocking accuracy. The “experience” is coming to a close, and there’s really only 7 months left for me at Queen’s. This […]

  • Coming up this week…

    In 12 hours I’m going to be getting on a flight to Vancouver. This is my final hurrah of the summer, the final tiny bit of adventure I get in before school starts up again. In Vancouver the agenda is pretty thick with Game Design and Digital Media schools to check out. I’ve got five […]

  • Nelly’s Ride Wit Me

    Back in Grade 11, a few friends and I innocently made a music video cover of Nelly’s Ride Wit Me. We really weren’t seeking artistic integrity at the time, just seeing what we could do with some video editing and shooting. Also, one of the guys I was working with was incredibly rich (as as […]

  • Quagmire

    I’m stuck here. I’m looking exhaustively at school programs for next year, specifically game design program. I have a little .txt file I keep full of all of them, and one has really caught my eye. It’s the Vancouver Film School Game Design Program. It’s a twelve-month intensive program, where I drop $29,000 to have […]

  • Wii!!!!!

    I just got back home from my glorious friend Ryan’s house, where he introduced me to the Wii. Thus, I shall expound on it. We played Wii Sports, as he didn’t have any other two-player games, so keep in mind this is only reflective of Wii Sports on the Wii, not any other title. After […]

  • What I'm reading right now

    In light of yesterday’s post on the newest book I’ve got, I’m going to reveal what Dustin’s reading on a regular basis. I’m actually a ways off from breaking into Second Person – I have several books to go through before that. Usually, for books, I have one fiction and one non-fiction going at the […]

  • Mailroom!

    Holy crap! It’s Second Person: Role-Playing and Story in Games and Playable Media

  • A Short History of Progress

    Summer of 2004:I’m bussing downtown at Chez Piggy, leaving me pretty unstimulated intellectually, leading some critics to call this “a rather boring summer.” While trying to cure my boredom, I discover Second Life while surfing on Considering I’m part of a real-life Improv Show, I try starting a team in Second Life. I manage […]

  • Gone to Southeast Asia

    From May 1st – June 10th, I’m gone backpacking across Southeast Asia with my friend Taylor. I won’t be updating this old place as much, but I will be putting words and pictures (and videos?) on our travel blog,
