I’d say this video is nearly as old as I am. I love it.
Just sitting around today and thinking about blogging projects for next year. My gaming post from Monday got me thinking about Morrowind. That game will be 15 years old in 2017, and it’s held up better than any other game from the early 2000’s I can think of.
I’ve got the pc version with the two expansion packs and 50 or 60 GB worth of mods, including a few simple ones I made myself, stashed away. I’m thinking I might set up a character and play the character to maximum level, blogging the whole thing with copious screenshots and funny captions as I go.
The problem is, I don’t have a computer I’m comfortable installing Morrowind and a bunch of community-made mods on at the moment. I figure by January or February, though, I’ll be able to afford a desktop that will run it just fine and the family can use the desktop for other things when I’m otherwise occupied.
I’m thinking this could be good, would take so long I could finish it up just as Morrowind turns 15 years old, and if I make the thing entertaining enough, readers wouldn’t necessarily need to know much about Morrowind to enjoy it.
What about that?
I’m doing my best to get back into the swing of blogging, and things are much better for me now than they’ve been since July. But the offline stuff just won’t quit, so I’m taking it slowly. I don’t want to jump back in with both feet and start posting every day until I am sure I can sustain that level of activity for several months.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard this song. Thanks for the introduction and the video.
I’m glad you are getting back to the blogging world. It’s tough to get back into the groove when you take a break, intended or not.
It’s one of my favorites. And yes, very tough indeed.
When someone plays Leonard Cohen I always have to stop a minute and listen.
I’ve been struggling to get some momentum going again on my blog for quite a while now too. The offline life has got me in its clutches. Though, I can’t say that’s an entirely bad thing on my end. In the meantime I do my writing as opportunity and inspiration come… and take lots of notes.
