Jan 03 2001

Well. After a long struggle to move my domain name from Frontline.net to WebMages, and Network Solutions verifying (by e-mail) that the changes were made, it looks like other-space.com no longer resolves to anything. Great. I get to spend another half an hour waiting on hold with Network Solutions. At least their representatives are pleasant and helpful.

I and my parents spent some time last night going over plans for our trip to England in two years. We’ll have visited much of the southern half of England, so we want to focus on the northwest. We have some ideas now regarding where to stay: Felbrigg Hall (immortalized in Cobwebs and Cream Teas), Acorn Bank, and somewhere else between them, maybe in York or Lincoln, or maybe Fountain’s Abbey.

MegaTokyo is starting a really interesting storyline. Largo and Piro are lost in Tokyo, and Piro just did something quite unexpected. Houston, we have a drama! Man, this makes me want to make a comic strip of my own. Not that I have anywhere near the time for it.

Today as I entered work, our secretary asked if I’d be interested in going to a rock concert on the 20th, in which her son is playing. It looks like it has very hard-core rock, which isn’t my thing, but I’m sort of tempted to try it out. I’ve never done this sort of thing before, and it would be an experience. I can always leave if I don’t like it.

At lunch, I needed to get out of the office, so I went to the bookstore and bought — pretty much on a whim — a book of quotes, and a book on comedy writing. I also browsed through the store’s books on cartooning. None of them apealed, but they were certainly inspiring. Cartooning is fun.

I worked a bit on my fantasy book when I got home, then video-captured some footage for my next anime music video. Once 10:30 rolled around, I didn’t want to go to bed, so I started assembling the video. I really got into it, though, and had most of it done by the time my Mom stumbled in at 1:30 a.m. to ask if I’d ever eaten anything for dinner (I hadn’t). All I had left to do was find a static clip for early on in the video, and complete the climactic 15 seconds (which will consist of 1-second shots of Iria and Zeiram fighting each other, in the same order they fight in the actual series), so I decided to wait until the next night, when I’d be fresh.
