Well it’s been a boring month, work, 2 parties (in one weekend), collage, video editing, modern warfare 2, actually that sounds more busy than boring. Oh well here is the post anyways. As you will have seen the website has been changed again and it may change more until I settle on one I like.
I have recently been looking at tutorials on the source SDK hammer editor and have found them very useful. This covers everything from beginner to pro (I am a beginner). There are lots of interesting tutorials and I may begin making videos about the more advance creations and start creating maps for download (ill keep you posted on that)
As for video progress I am considering putting up a image that will show the progress of a video project. I’m doing this for 2 reasons
1. It may motivate me more to complete the videos
2. I wont have to mention it in the blogs until they are released
Anyways that’s it. Comments below are welcome so cya all

Well here I am again making another blog that no one may read. O well I don’t care, anyways on to other matters. I have been really busy with college lately so nothing to report on the video front other than I have a idea for a new series that is not related to the ascendant and follows the story of life after the combine (when Gordon freeman did whatever he is going to do in episode 3) so ill keep everyone updated on that.
This video series is still in planning stages and is at the point where it may go ahead and be made or it may be scrapped as an idea (comments are welcome on the matter).
The story goes following the journey of a man along the deserts of earth in ~2050 and finds a device that allows him to create audio logs. These logs detail the history of the half life universe from the black mesa incident to the combine leaving earth (my bit I had to come up with) . That is the basic story I have planned so far and it will be like one of those Machinima’s like VAE Victus (if you have not seen it, do so now, it’s worth watching)
So that’s just about it, again comments are welcome and…. Oh.. I almost forgot. The sales for products are on hold for a while until I can figure things out.
That’s all I have to say other than stay on the dark side!

Well hi yall
I have been relaxing most of the holidays and have enjoyed it. I installed the new processor and everything is now running smoothly however. When I came to install Sony Vegas it decided to play awkward buggers with me so I hade to restart editing on the ascendant.
It gets worse the footage I had and the footage with the new processor is scrambled so I have to restart from scratch. I believed that a good movie was better than a late one and since I am not hounded for it I am not so bothered. I will be working on it but I cannot promise a deadline.
This 2nd version of the ascendant part 2 is going to be better in that I have used more advanced tools using NPC’s and the footage is smother and better looking.
Anyways that’s what’s been happening. Hope you all had good holidays and we shall see what 2010 brings

Well hi fellas
It’s been sometime (to be fair I do better than the TF2 blog) but I’m back making a blog post on recent events
Firstly I changed the OS system ok and managed to upgrade to Vegas pro 9 and will hopefully gain Adobe (being a student I get a huge discount). However I was shocked to see that I could not use the project file I had for the ascendant part 2.This dose not mean I’ve lost everything I just need to re edit which is something I was considering in the first place.
Secondly I have another driving test this Friday (17th December) so I’m preparing for that again (my 4th try) and I hope to pass.
Finally collage work is increasing as I want to spend the holidays relaxing and working on the ascendant part 2. I know all this talk is sounding like excuses and it dose to me but all I can say is its not an excuse its life but as promised I will keep you all updated.
Thanks for reading
Question for this blog post: What do you think of Starcraft 2?

Well I am back and I have much needed news. Firstly I have successfully changed my OS system after a few knocks to the head, some swearing and missing screws now found. I have now more processing power and will be getting even more come New Year.this has allowed me to play games that are much smoother and higher FPS.
Secondly I am upping my software as I am now able to upgrade from Sony Vegas 9 to Sony Vegas 9 pro and maybe even adobe premier and after effects so I will be working on the ascendant part 2 ASAP.
Well just thought id let anyone who wanted to know… know
Thanks for reading

Well as the title suggests I have had a change of plan. In a previous blog named “the future after the ascendant” I said I would be updating software after I finished the ascendant part 2. I have now chosen to do this now and there are a few reasons for this
One reason is that I may be able to start the project again using a different (more advanced) editor while keeping the footage however this is unlikely. Another reason is that my computer is starting to show sings of decay (slowing down and being a general nuisance). The third and final reason is that there are not that many if not any people waiting for the Ascendant part 2 (to those that are waiting, I thank you for your patience).
Also with this update I will be offline for a few days but ill make a blog when it’s all done.
Cya in a few days

Well I have to say now that not much has been going on since the last Blog post. I am half way with the ascendant and am hoping to release a sneak preview of the title scene just to keep everything simmering over.
I don’t think I’m giving away too much when I say that I am now at a point where the main fight breaks out between Dark Pineapple Man and G-Maniac and another Character you will recognize. I am looking forward to doing this part for 2 reasons
1. The plans I got so far are really good and I cant wait to see them in action
2. After the part is finished the video will be almost done
Out of the 5 sections I have split the video into. I have filmed 3 out of 5 and edited 2 out of 5.
On other news I am developing a logo for the dark fruit patch and I intend to be using It shortly, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas leave a comment or a link and ill take a look.
Anyways I’m off again
Thanks for reading

Why hello there
Now I am better "The Ascendant Part 2" is now underway and is almost half done. But this is not about the "The Ascendant Part 2"; it is about what will be happening after the ascendant is finished.
Firstly I will be doing a major upgrade on software and hardware. This includes a new processor, new hard rive and a new motherboard am also hoping to upgrade to adobe premier or Sony Vegas pro 9 at least (I use Sony Vegas 9)
After that is done there will be a couple of small gmod videos and a sires that will follow the story after the ascendant.
So that’s the plan.
Thanks for reading

If you have read the last blog post you will know that I was unwell, this is still the case and it’s been affecting all aspects of life. However I have had the time to finish off more tracks and can now put them together as one album.
This work includes “Electrical Purity” and “Charged House” which can be viewed in this very website. There will be tracks that will not have been heard like "Lifted Burden" and my new favourite "Signals From Below" so keep up-to-date as will cover this topic again. It has been Fun making these tracks and when they come to be released I am sure you will enjoy listening to them.
As for the ascendant part 2 working is moving very slowly but it is moving as I have now done one of the hardest parts which included a korma key (green screen) and a lot of fine tuning to look right. however to make up for this I am now just needing to do recording and editing that is more simple and hopefully I will be feeling better soon so I can start working on it more.
That’s about it I suppose
