There's lots of reasons to play video games. Why do you play?

AIDYN: Dad! Dad! Dad! Dad!

ME: What?!

(Thinking something important might have happened, based on the tone of his voice and insistence.)

AIDYN: Batman and Iron Man arrested Snake Eyes.

(Sigh. It's gonna be a long day, I can feel it.)

ABOUT THIS COLLECTION.
I game, mostly casually. I mostly enjoy shooters and otherwise action oriented stuff. I'll post about games I'm playing, want to play, upcoming games, etc.

I'm also going to post about games my 7 year old loves, probably mostly the lesser known stuff. Why? Because it's good to share the lesser known stuff. I won't be posting about Lego games, for example. It's a given that kids like them and everyone knows about them.

Here is a list of online games I'm playing at the moment:
- The Division (X1)
- Neverwinter (X1)
- Defiance (X360)
- DC Universe Online (X1)

Here's a list of offline games I'm playing at the moment
- Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (X1)
- Mad Max (X1)
- Alien Isolation (X1)
- Sunset Overdrive (X1)
- Watchdogs (X1)
- Wolfenstein: The New Order (X1)
- Mass Effect 3 (X360)

I've also got a huge backlog of games I need to finish. Probably start over, because its been so long.

I'll update this list as it changes. And no, I'm not playing them all at once exactly. Or maybe I am and that's half the problem?

This is without a doubt one of my favorite videos I've ever made. Proud of the work we did on this.
 
Hello Future - Be the One - Moby music video challenge
Five years ago, we took part in a Moby music video contest through Vimeo. It was a super blast. We filmed in a few hours, chopped in a few days.

We decided to personify the future, which invariably included the past and present, to meet the "Hello, Future" theme. There is a story going on in this video, but we'll leave some of it to your imagination as opposed to dictating it to you.

We didn't win, but had a lot of fun doing it and learned a few new tricks.

+Nathan Weaver wrote and directed, as well as co-starred. It also stars David Chirban and Heather Chirban as well. Camera work and editing by +Rafe Preston.

What did you think? How did we do? Enjoy the video? What do you think the story is here? Sound off in the comments.

I Believe by Blessed Union of Souls
In case you didn't know, the 90s was full of great music. I had completely forgotten about Blessed Union of Souls until someone messaged me something today and the phrasing reminded me of a phrase in their song Hey Leonardo. That lead me down a nostalgic path, which I've very much been enjoying. And now I share some of that Blessed Union of the soul with you.

I believe that love is the answer. I believe love will find a way.

This song talks about...
- hate
- violence
- racism

So, it's probably more relevant now than ever before.

Pre-Order of The Division: IT'S MINE!
When my pre-order copy of The Division came in, that my wife got for me, I was pretty excited. So excited in fact, I made this goofy video with Kinect's crazy features.

Yes, that's two of me. And yes, we do talk to each other.

As someone who has worked with both blue and green screens, the feature on Kinect to do this without either was pretty impressive. And if you've never played around in the Upload Studio app, or whatever they call it--which is where you do all this fun stuff--I highly suggest it. It's a lot of fun.

Jerry, Kramer and Newman get new low-flow shower heads.
Love this subplot with the change up of shower heads in Jerry's apartment building. Frustrated, Jerry enters a pact with Kramer and Newman to get some new shower heads on the "black market".

--

KRAMER: I just took a bath, Jerry. A bath.

JERRY: No good?

KRAMER: It's disgusting! I'm sitting there in a tepid pool of my own filth. All kinds of microscopic parasites and organisms having sex all around me.

JERRY: Well, you used to sit in that hot tub.

KRAMER: Jerry, that was super-heated water! Nothing could live in that.

JJ Abrams isn't the worst. But he might be the most overrated. And +Jürgen Erhard just served him up pretty good here.
 
J.J. Abrams would film a whodunnit and leave out the whodunnit at the end.

Haha... perfect +Jürgen Erhard. My brother shared that video with me when it first came out with the note of, "I thought you might find this interesting, since you're making movies." And I rolled my eyes so long and hard. At the time I thought he was the biggest overrated and drivel. And it's great to think back on it and realize that he takes credit for intentionally bad writing.

So basically, "That's a story for another time," means, "I'm never gonna tell you how I got that light saber."

GUN, a collaborative novel
I'm gonna explode for a bit. In 2012, I started work on a second collaborative novel with fellow writers. We had big ambitions second time around, one of which was to shop the book to publishers instead of self-publishing.

I'm happy to say that next week our efforts will come to light. Our book will be published in both ebook and paperback through crime publishers Fahrenheit Press.

We're excited, all ten of us authors, and I'm super proud of the work we've accomplished together.

Introduction
Allow me to Introduce Myself
I'm Nathan Weaver, I've been writing for a ridiculously long time, and I'm just starting to get pretty good at the nonsense. I will be posting short stories and novellas here for your reading pleasure. I will also keep you updated in general, and about books in the pipeline. And please leave me comments to let me know how I'm doing.

I also co-own an independent production company, Onyx Dragon Productions.  We've done sketch TV stuff, short films, event videos, wedding videos, commercials, online videos, and we're in post-production on our first full-length movie, The Chalice.  Come Circle us here.

And I write lyrics, and occasionally use my pipes, for Blue Solace.  We make primarily bluesy, folksy music. 

Adds and Add-backs
I'm really bad about falling behind adding-back people who add me to their circles. This often happen, because I don't know why you added me. So the best way to get added back is to write a post share only to me; introduce yourself in it and let me know why you added me.

Here are some circles I have, which you may want to be added to. Share a post only to me to let me know if there are circles here you'd like to be added to.
  • Writers
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Readers
  • Publishers
  • Marketing
  • Movies - Filmmakers and actors land here.
  • Blogger - For Blogger.com users, because I run a Blogger Community.
  • Google - This is reserved  for Google Employees and Pages.
  • Technology
  • Education
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Onyx Dragon fans
  • Blue Solace fans
If you want to follow my writing, I'll add you to the Readers circle. If you want to follow my film-making exploits, I'll add you to the Onyx Dragon fans circle. You get the picture. 

What I Post
Honestly, I use Google+ primarily as a means to an author platform, so I post a lot about writing. I usually share these posts with Writers and Readers circles, though. I try hard to share content with the appropriate circles. I do post some about Technology and Education, because I am a Sr. Video Production Specialist working in online education. 
Bragging rights
I have 10+ years of experience in video production (having started out in television). 15+ years experience as a method actor. At age 21, I was teaching non-linear editing with Final Cut Pro at college level as a professional lecturer. Have three published books. Worked with Jack Hanna, and proved to be that silly camera man who sticks a camera in a python's face. My short horror story 'Family Secret' won a screenplay writing contest, and I got my short sci-fi story 'The Experiment' printed in The Derby Scribes.

Wine and Words - Divergent: the Movie vs. the Book
wineandwordsjllianashe.blogspot.com

I'm not drinking any wine while writing this review because I'm sick, but I have some really nice green tea I'm sure you wouldn't be interes

Absolutely fantastic food at this place. I had some great fish and my wife had a burger. I think it was the Mike's burger or something, and I finished it for her. Might have been the best burger I've ever had. Highly recommend the food here.

A great little place smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood. I learned about this place, because of their Wednesday night open mic (8pm-11pm). The open mic is great with a mixture of local musicians, poets, and some comedy (I do standup mostly at their open mic). They also have a great menu. The food is good and I haven't had a bad drink yet, either. They serve a mixture of coffee-shop style stuff, liquor and you can get a soda if you're not feeling adventurous. They regularly have performances as well, so pay attention to their schedule if you can. I've been to a couple shows outside of open mic and it is always a treat. And everyone who comes is really nice and warm. Feels like a community there on Wednesday nights.

Have been here a couple of times now with a local writers group, and have enjoyed the visits. The food is great, the atmosphere is great and the service is great. Not much to add other than that. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Huddle House is certainly not much to brag about. But it is one of the few options in Rolla open all night. I really only recommend their breakfast menu, their lunch menu is pretty poor. The service from the wait staff is always good though, so I have to say that. But then again, I'm usually only ever there in the middle of the night. Best time to be there, really. I recommend this over Waffle House, which may be the only other all-nighter option in Rolla.

Excellent food and drinks. I'm not much of a coffee drinker, never liked the taste much, but am slowly converting and I do love their Tuxedo Latte here. Any rate... good food, good drinks, and great atmosphere. It's a brand new location, with development going on about it as well. Highly recommend the yumminess that is 6 North Cafe. There are two other locations in St. Louis area. This one is in Wentzville.

Agree with the other user that this is the largest used book store in Rolla. It has a large collection of books, and you could spend hours walking in and out of rooms and shelves. And the prices are very cheap, which is nice as well. As far as service, I marked it as 'very good', but usually I'm just there to browse. They usually stay out of your way, but can be easily found at the front desk when you need them. I like taking my 4 year old here and looking for books together. They have a decent collection of children's books, plus just about every genre you can think of... from fiction/mystery/horror/sci-fi/fantasy/manga all the way to self-help and non-fiction. Highly recommend it.

Common Grounds has a great menu, decent prices, and a great atmosphere to boot. I don't live in Salem, I'm in Rolla, and don't mind heading over to Salem occasionally to enjoy this lovely place. It is a little difficult to find, at least when I went to it, Google Maps was a little confusing. If you look for the sign, and know that it's around the backside of the building it is in, that helps. One unique element about this place is that they do not fry anything. So when you get fries with a burger, it's baked waffle fries. Which are good. Any rate... go check it out, it's lovely.
