Current affairs

Just to catch up a little after a two-month gap: I have been busy. Mostly busy with life stuff (I’m still working full-time and studying full-time, which doesn’t leave me a lot of time for other things), but some of the work I’ve been doing will also hopefully lead to interesting news on this blog in the longer run.

For one thing, I’m progressing well on my first scholarly article, the topic of which I shouldn’t talk about yet. I hope to have it finished by the end of the semester, which means around August, but we’ll see how that works out. I don’t know how and where I can publish it, since there are usually some prerequisites I don’t meet yet like an affiliated university or an academic grade, but I’m sure there will be a way.

Secondly, I’m part of a musical project that has me play a Commodore 64 live. We were supposed to premiere a few days ago, but due to some last-minute obstacles we cancelled our appearance. At the moment, we are looking into other ways to continue – different venues, but also ideas to expand our planned 15-minute improvisation into a longer performance. It currently looks like everything will click into place soon, so I’m going to postpone any further announcements to that point.

I’m also still writing for the Spectrum fanzine SUC-SESSION, with the third instalment of my “Adventure-Ecke” having come out recently. An English version usually follows soon after. (I’m not translating those articles myself, but from what I’ve seen the translator is doing a fantastic job.)

For those who haven’t been following my activities too closely (which I assume means everyone), I’d also like to mention my calendar again where you can see all my public appearances, including public tours at the Computerspielemuseum.

There are two remaining German-only articles on this website, short birthday greetings to Bob Bates and Tim Follin, that I didn’t originally intend to translate, but if nothing interesting keeps happening, I might be tempted.
