August 2020 – Asundered!

Yes, I am aware asundered isn’t a word, but I don’t care! My website, my word rules. Ha! Anyway, welcome to my monthly wrap-up article! Let’s see what went down in my online life during these past 28-31 days…

And another month in 2020 bites the dust! The drama and despair that continues to assault our global society just seems… even more unreal. If anyone ever needs anyone to talk to, I’m here for ya!

We all got this. Love wins and we are only ever guaranteed to have a today. Make the best out of whatever life throws at you!

50 Shades of Dismay

This article is brought to you by the second Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the new to me and awesome blogger Dragonray of Azerothian Life: What is some popular piece of content/media that seems to be universally loved that you have never been able to understand?

Game of Thrones was the first thing to pop into my mind, so I could definitely pick the same answer that Dragonray did. However, I decided to throw some shade (pun intended) at another seemingly popular piece of work that makes my skin crawl just thinking about it…

Yep. 50 Shades of Grey, the super popular erotic fantasy every woman apparently loves. Whelp. This woman sure as hell does not.

Seriously Geeky Sundays: What makes you smile?

Ah, smiling legitimately is one of the best feelings ever!! I’ve worn millions of fake smiles to get through many hard days, but there’s nothing like the real thing to boost my mood, as rare as that is sometimes.

The awesome Heather over at Just Geeking By started a series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about appreciating the things that make us smile in honor of National Smile Day. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s smiley questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!

Novel Notes: Each Little Universe

ZOMG! An upcoming soon-to-be-super-famous published author gave me an advance copy of their debut novel?? This is so freaking cool… ahem. Sorry. Let me try to pull out my professional-ish article writing tone. I think I have one of those… probably? (I… um, don’t think I do. Oh well!)

In all seriousness, that was one of my primary objectives for creating Ace Asunder about 2 months ago: To promote great indie content creators on their path to content creation stardom. Thank you so much to the great author Chris Durston for giving me this opportunity to do that! Also, if there are any other indie aspiring authors, game developers, artists, content-in-general creators out there reading this and want me to babble-boost about your work, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll consider it.

Disclaimer: I also consider Chris one of my closest friends so my opinions of his work may be a bit biased because I know what an awesome human he truly is. Supporting my rare friends relentlessly and however I can while they pursue whatever they dream of doing is just how I am.

Novel Notes: Icefall

A post-apocalyptic YA tale with no shoehorned romances? Well, gee, sign me right up! One of my biggest issues with novels classified as YA is that a stupid romance (or awful love triangle) seems to be required, thus creating awful relationships between characters that make me eye roll so damn hard. There’s none of that crap in Icefall and lots of action scenes. Both huge reasons why I enjoyed it!

Novel Notes: Incognito, The Secret Lives of the Brain

If I could go back in time and yell one thing at high school era me it would be this: “Pursue a career is psychology, not electronics! Trust me. I’m you from the future.” Yep. If I ever get a time machine, that’s totally happening. I don’t care how much damage it does to the timeline.

Anyway, I have an armchair interest in psychology and mental health topics these days. Initially, I was a little worried this book would be over my head since I have no formal education in the psychology area. On of my best friends at the time told me I wouldn’t have any trouble with the topics, and would likely enjoy it. And yep, they were right! I also miss talking to them a lot and really hope they’re doing well with the world falling apart and whatnot. Alas.

A History of Video Games in 64 Objects

Day 9 of the Blapril posting spree is here! Almost a third of the way there, people… wait. That thought actually isn’t comforting at all. Oh well! We’re all having fun blogging here, right? That’s the important part.

My long weekend began at 10:30am today due to my boss busting me for working too much this week. I was told to go relax and enjoy my weekend as best I can given the state of the coronapocalypse. I was using work as a nice distraction from the world falling apart around me, but I’m overall grateful, I guess.

Instead of wisely using my extra time to write planned posts for Blapril, I decided to do the following:

  • Waited in a socially distanced line to get into a grocery store to buy chocolate, while witnessing garbage humanity at its worst.
  • Walked over 10km while doing a lot of Pokémon GO stuff.
  • Played for the first time and beat in one sitting a relaxing underwater video game that has been sitting in my Steam library for years.
  • Created an Instagram account due to peer pressure.

Some of those activities sparked blog article ideas at least! It’s just a matter of forming those raw thoughts into coherent written words at some point. For today, I’m going to give my structured thoughts on a cool piece of video game historical literature: A History of Video Games in 64 Objects which details items in The Strong museum located in Rochester, NY. Lots and lots of love being sent down south to all my USA neighbours, by the way. You guys got this!
