Well, School starts up for me tomorrow, you know what that means? More time for me to blog! Believe it or not I will actually get way more blogging done from work than I will taking care of the jawababy at home. I still have Nova Open info and Gamesday stuff coming up! I have been having problems with Windows Movie Maker for some reason. I throw together a movie made up of video shorts that I have shot, and when I go to publish, it just stalls out and I have to restart the program, losing all of my work. Frustrating. Any clues WTF? On a related note, I am looking for a quick, convenient and easy program that I can use to convert my HD video from my Canon Vixia HF 200 into a format that I can use on Movie Maker. I have Studio Pro, but it is honestly too much software! All I want to do is select a folder full of videos from my camera, and tell them all to turn into files Movie Maker can use. Is that too much to ask?
On a related note, I will be taking a break from the weekly Jawaballs Live! broadcasts. I need to try to make some money so I will be going back to the photography gig after school. I shoot action pictures for high school yearbooks. Jawa wants to buy a house! While I enjoy doing the broadcasts, I need to devote those evenings to doing something that makes me moolah. I will however do unscheduled broadcasts a couple times a month. So stay tuned here for details on those.
I have a couple of cool things coming up in the next few months, and some neat things I think you guys should check out.
First of all, a new 40k blog! The blog scene is exploding which is fantastic. But I always love to plug the Blood Angels ones. Kevin, a reader and poster here, has decided to take a stab at a blog of his own, and HERE IT IS! Go take a look!
Also there is a new Blood Angels infosite/forum that has just launched and I registered for. GO SEE IT HERE. It just launched, but at first glance looks pretty spiffy! Way better than my hack job of a site. I'm happy to be part of the growing community.
Coming up for tournaments we have two in October and one in November.
First of all comes The Battle for Salvation!
This one is being put on by my club of the same name, and NO we are not a religious organization. We simply meet in a Salvation Army hall which happens to be in the back of a church. This tournament is being run in the style that had a huge success this year at The Nova Open. There are 48 spots only, and the top few will be invited back the second day for a mini round robin tournament to decide the overall Emperor of mankind and winner of The Battle for Salvation. It is being held in White Plains, NY which is a short train hop from Manhattan and is a beautiful destination for any one who appreciates beautiful fall weather and great 40k. Visit the site for more details.
Moving on, my next stop will be at The Meadowlands for The Warstore Weekend!
This is a great weekend being put on by every ones favorite online store, The Warstore! Neal and the boys have a bunch of great stuff planned for the weekend, including a 40k tournament that I plan on entering. So I hope to see you all there!
Then shortly after I will be traveling out to PA again for The Mechanicon!
