Is... still on hiatus. Look, it's been a busy summer and I'm going to level with you it's been hard to get this one going again.

Bastion the Last Hope
On the other hand, Bastion is back. For the last few weeks I've been able to work out the buffer a bit, see that I've got some of the "off week" videos and audio ready to go, and I'm able to focus on getting done what needs doing so that it can come back. Now to find the time to apply that other properties.

The summer is winding down faster than I thought possible. It's hard to believe that in a few weeks I'll be back at work and 90% of my summer plans did not come to fruition.

Okay this one is home brewed using iMovie but it show cases some of the fun we've had this summer.
