...is the first post in more than a year!

I've been going crazy in the mean time.  Good crazy, but crazy nonetheless.

Probably the biggest change has been my new job.  (Not the most important change, though. That honor goes to my girlfriend, Valerie!  ^^)  For the last year, I've been working as the audio director on a fighting game that should be released very soon.  Being a hardcore console game title, the team is working: hardcore!

My own work situation has me balancing this job with my teaching gig at USC.  If it's a day where I'm not lecturing, I'm usually spending about 4-6 hours at home doing sound and

music before doing another 6-10 hours working in the game itself, whether it's further design, scripting or (oh please god no!) coding.  If it's a day where I'm teaching, well... things get out of hand.  Friday, for example, has me lecturing for 7 straight hours, from 10 AM to 5 PM.  Usually the best I can do is fit in 2-4 hours before or after that stretch... and then I get brain or ear fried. (I'm using headphones 95% of the time thanks to the open floor plan, so I'm getting some serious ear fatigue...)

Going to try to get back in the habit of posting stuff.  Who knows if it'll actually happen, though!  At the very least, I hope it's not another year before I do another post; hopefully the next one has a little more substance than this...
