Site Update

Me update.

Pictured: Me over the last month or two.

For those who might be reading this, you may be wondering where I’ve been over the last… wow, it’s been that long, huh?

I’m not going to get into all the sordid, weepy, or whatever details. Suffice to say, I’ve been busy dealing with a number of things personal and professional, mental and physical, private and public. It’s been rather taxing, and cutting into where I’d be updating this site, or PoisonMushroom.Org (though I did at least get a post up to celebrate the anniversary of Super Mario Bros. 2‘s triumphant release 30 years ago).

Not that I’ve been resting on my laurels; at least I’ve maintained productivity on the paying side of things, and that’s by and large where most of my energy has been spent.

But finally, finally, despite everything, I feel like I’m at a point where I can resume some sort of control over my own life again, and thus resume updating here. And I’ve got some stuff that’s been chomping away at me for a while, believe you me! Expect, among other things, some stuff on the releases of Sonic Mania Plus, Forza Horizon 4, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas here before long, and maybe some news-ish things in the meantime (there are some things I really wanted to cover as they happened, but are less “news” now than “things that happened somewhat recently.” Hopefully I’ll figure out a solution for talking about those things that needn’t elicit snark about their tardiness).

And yeah, I guess that’s basically it for now. Hope to see you back here soon!
