Goodbye for now

 Well, looks like I'm done here for a while. I would have liked to go out with a BANG instead of a whimper, but I guess that's not the way of things.

 Thanks for the support you've given me so far. Rest assured that I will be back, but that won't be for a while.

 If you really can't live without me, you can find me on Twitter, Tumblr, MLP Forums, Friendship is Gaming, Deviantart, and hanging around a bunch of other places.

 Or if you feel like meeting me in person, head to Sac-con at the end of October, or other conventions in that area.

Thanks for a great six months! God bless!

Just an FYI, my great-grandmother just died, so don't expect to hear from me for a couple of days.

God bless.

Off-Topic: New SOPA?

So, this could be a thing.

Some excerpts (edited for grammar):

 "Recently it was brought to my attention TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) just passed."

 "We are being targeted by a new law that will be introduced. This new law states 'Any reproduction, remastering, modification, alteration, reselling, and/or manipulation of an original copyrighted item will not be infringed on, or will be punishable by jail time, and/or a fine of up to a $100,000, and/or be sued by the copyright holder.' "

My car broke down.

So yeah.

No post today.

 Over the past month or so, my schedule has become increasingly complicated, leaving very little time to write.

 In addition, I've had very little inspiration, and several planned posts got pushed back so that I could rework them, or canceled entirely. I've had to rush to post things several times, and the quality and depth of the posts has suffered as a result.

 And finally, my fanfiction has not turned out quite as I had hoped, due in part to its format, so I'm considering reworking what I've already written into something a little easier to read.

 With all those things in mind, I've decided to reduce the frequency of posts to one a week. This is not a decision I'm particularly happy with, but I think it's necessary at the present time.

  If and when my schedule opens back up, I may return to multiple posts per week, but I do not expect this to happen anytime soon.

Thank you for your understanding.

Good night, and God bless.

Off-Topic: Unpopular Opinion on Star Wars

 I'm about to say some things that will probably make you angry.

 I'm not trying to make anyone angry or hurt their feelings, I just feel the need to clear the air.

 I'm not excited for, or looking forward to, the new Star Wars movies.

 It's not that I don't think that they might be good, and the villians look awesome (the new Stormtroopers in particular), but the movies themselves just haven't done anything to catch my attention.
Shown here: Badass. But can it save the movie?

 I know that Star Wars has done some really cool stuff in video games and comic books, but fans still mock the prequels, and the originals haven't aged well, especially after all the the "revisions" that George Lucas has made.

 Yes, I realize that Lucas is not directly involved in the new movies, and yes, I know that J.J. Abrams has done some good stuff, but Abrams tends to make things in a certain way (Lost, Fringe, and Star Trek have some similar stylings), and that style may not be well suited to a galaxy far, far away.

 One more thing, I don't find BB-8 cute. At all. I see the proportions and behaviors that make other people feel that way, but I just can't bring myself to like it.

 I also don't like the new and revised vehicles. They just look silly, and not in a good way.

 I feel like everyone is working themselves into a frenzy just because it's Star Wars, and I just don't feel the same.

 Sorry, Nate.

 God bless.
