It appears I decided to vanish off of the face of the Earth? Not sure why. Tears In Rain may have killed me or something, that would be a good excuse. The true excuse is that I just lost my mojo following that event and I’ve been gearing up for my next few projects. Spelunky and a bout of film gluttony all ended my writing career for about (nearly) a month but I am ready to return. Thank you for all your kind tweets and beats about Tears, I will post a post-mortem at some point this Summer (probably when I release the other versions) but the 10,000 views it has now has me utterly speechless. Thank you so much.
I have been playing Spelunky on the console box for the past week or so and I already have one of my favourite games of forever. I played the PC version for a year on-and-off and recently picked it back up. The exciting thing about Spelunky is that it’s the first game I can think of that has consequences behind its violence, although Gunpoint is about to change all that. I will be writing a series on Spelunky at some point, possibly for a website if things go well.
I’ve trodden through the filmography of Nolan, Fincher and mixed in some Kaufman and Stiller comedies to try and get some texture for the next few weeks of my life. I’ll be spending it cuddled up to American Psycho and some psychology anthologies as I try and piece another ‘Tears‘ together. I specifically watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which will indeed getting its own essay, along with my ‘Aliens‘ essay anthology finishing soon.
Sorry for the delays in all the writing, but I have just written a book.
