New Website: Truly Abrasive

I’ve got a pretty exciting announcement which is that I’ve got a brand new site called Truly Abrasive! It’s not replacing this site, it’s a completely different entity. It’s all about games, anime, movies and television and my brutally honest opinions on them all. It only launched earlier this week so it’s got very few articles, but I’m planning on having a very steady flow of content. I’m currently working on some ideas for new feature series for the site as well.

I’ll be back in the next couple days to announce something else, but until then I hope everyone takes care of themselves!

 

Returning To The Path

Getting back on track can be hard. No matter the situation, having to recalibrate yourself takes a lot of effort and in some cases a lot of tries. I haven’t written in a while and I’m just now starting to get back into the groove of things. Months have gone by where I hadn’t even typed a word for a short story, a game idea or a TV/film script, but even though I wasn’t writing, my mind always pushed out new ideas each day. Now it’s time to focus all my efforts on my work.

I’m excited to get back to writing blog posts because there are so many things I wanted to talk about and rant about, but never got around to and I think that for once I should finish what I started. I’m going to resume the list of my most influential CDs and then I’m going to try to do weekly posts on projects I’m working on so I can show you all the progress I have made on them.

While a blog post once a week might not seem like a lot, I think it will do me good to have a bit of a schedule and some consistency.

Now it’s time for me to retrace my steps and figure out where I left off with my most influential CDs.

See ya soon!

Extra Life 2014

Hey everyone!

I’ve been a gamer since as long as I can remember and this year I’ve decided to participate in Extra Life’s National Game Day of 2014! After years of just playing games for fun, I have now found a way to have fun and help out our local communities!

I’ll be playing a bunch of games on my PS4 for 24 hours straight and it’s all to help raise money for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital; Maine’s only full service children’s hospital.

You can watch me play on my Ustream channel at this link right here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/big-gamers-talk

Here’s a small sample of some of the games I’ll be playing:

  • Infamous: Second Son
  • Destiny
  • Spelunky
  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch
  • Velocity 2X
  • Fez
  • Daylight
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail
  • Pix The Cat
  • Tiny Brains
  • And Many, Many More!

The goal is $500 dollars and every little bit counts and every little bit is also tax deductible. It’s a win-win situation all around! So come watch me play games all day on Saturday, October 25th starting at 9 a.m.!

You can donate by visiting my fundraising page right here: http://extra-life.org/participant/GarrettMartin

Thanks!
