Don't read any further if you don't want to roll your eyes at more of my travails. But, seeing as how I've no where else to vent, vent I shall.

But seriously, this is kind of important in terms of gaming, my career, life, the universe and everything. No joke.

The screenwriter for Bab-5's first three seasons spoke at DunDraCon. What I had been trying to do in the late 80s, transfer my gaming skill and marry it to my then film and video career, is now industry standard.

It wasn't when I was trying to do it.

But it is now.

And I had family and friends working against me, to ween me off of games, urging me to move to Los Angeles, all the while I was trying to do what is now done routinely, and, have fore knowledge of where camera and editing tech was going, knew that it was a bad move to move south, and wiser to stay up North. Particularly since Coppola and Lucas were up here, and Spielberg tapped local Bay Area talent.

I'm angry as hell.

And all of this is on top of all the stuff I posted, but took down.

Magnus; yeah, living well is the best revenge, but it feels so damn good to rub someone's nose in their pure wrongness and stupidity. Particularly since it lasted for 30+ years of my life. And if fortune should smile upon me, then it better be monetarily, and it better let me stay here in the Bay Area, hopefully in a nice expensive home in either North Beach SF or Sausalito.

Magnus; you know, not to toot my own horn too much, but I knew the future of media. I knew where camera tech was going, and being raised around computers, I knew that Hollywood, in terms of visual media, would become a vestige. And I knew that the lay person would be able to put their home movies on their computer for the world to see. But no one thought that any of my notions had any merit. And I was forced to sell my house, forced to donate the car my mother gave me for graduation, and harassed on the job to "get me where I am today". Then listening to that screenwriter talk about how he creates screenplays and how he became a success, using MY METHODS ... slow burn does not even begin to describe my feelings. But yeah, you are right of course. I'm just wondering where I would be now if my career had been left up to me, and not a bunch of people who knew jack sh_t about science and technology.

Remember my friend, living well is the best revenge! I find at this point in my life, those words are true. Hold fast, mate, hold fast.
