The new Star Wars trailer is exciting! I especially love the crashed star destroyer. What an image! I'm looking forward to the new films now.

#ThankfulThursday: I'm grateful I have the freedom to not post a Thankful Thursday, if I don't feel like it, as I didn't do last week. Habits are powerful tools, but it's important to evaluate them to ensure they're serving us, instead of us serving them. Don't let good practices become shackles.

Joss on movie executives: “Let’s put it this way: If a raccoon can carry a movie, then they believe maybe even a woman can.”
Last summer, Joss Whedon gave an interview to Digital Spy in which he reiterated some of the same comments he’s been making for years: sexism and misogyny are rampant in Hollywood, and old white guys with money don’t think women can headline superhero films. Of course, in the months since then, Marv

#ThankfulThursday: I'm grateful that weather and atmosphere make each day look a bit different, sometimes dramatically different. The same terrain can take on an entirely different look and feel with fog, rain, snow, or bright sun, creating endless variety for the same places.

#ThankfulThursday: I'm grateful for the growth opportunities that challenging situations offer. We may not like leaving the comfort of our familiar environments and routines, but new situations can bring us out of our comfort zone, and often that's what we need to be challenged to grow. We can't always get what we want, but sometimes we get what we need.

#ThankfulThursday: I'm grateful I had a cold this past week. I had taken being well for granted. Now it feels wonderful to have a normal level of energy and concentration! Good health is a great blessing.

I watched an HDR TV for the first time today. It was breathtaking. The contrast was stunning. Super bright areas mingled with dark areas in the same shot, and the clarity of both was not compromised. And the images looked very sharp, even though the TV was only 1080p.

Yes, I was amazed at how sharp the image looked! I thought I was watching 4K, until I learned at the end that the TV was just 1K. Sharp contrast really brings out the details.

#ThankfulThursday: I'm grateful that challenges produce growth. Just as physical exercise causes our strength to increase, pushing ourselves to perform beyond the level we're used to increases our capabilities.

Story
Tagline
iPhone/iPad/Mac app developer
Introduction
I'm a man with two brains. One brain is an engineer. The other brain is an artist. That's probably why I've been drawn to video games since I was 11. My career so far as been ruled by my engineer brain, and I've had a fairly successful career as a software engineer.

But my artist brain has been asserting dominance for the past few years, and I now want to making a living doing something that expresses my creativity. I want to make games for a living. Specifically, I want to make games that tell stories that have as much impact as a movie and as much depth as a novel.
