Well, after more than a year, I've decided to start blogging again. I decided that I want to start externalizing all the crazy thoughts and desires that are in my head, even if it's for no one's benefit other than my own. And I want it to be in more than 140 characters. Twitter is awesome (follow me, @brubinow) but I want to get back into the habit of writing more long-form pieces.
I'm not going to be concentrating on videogame journalism anymore, mostly because it is no longer where my professional aspirations lie. I'll talk about that more in a future post, but for now, I'd like to talk about what this blog is going to cover from here on out.
My life has gone through a lot of changes in the past couple years. I'm in a new environment (though still in Los Angeles), a new job, and I have new goals for life. I want to write more. A lot more. I want to try my hand at stand-up comedy. I want to get out and experience all that the wonderful city of Los Angeles has to offer. And most of all, I want to not internalize the whole experience, but to capture it in words (and hopefully later, in photographs, audio and video) and share it with everyone I can.
This is all going to start very soon. I hope to post, at the bare minimum, once per week. More than that if I can. I have several topics already in mind and am actively searching for more. Expect my first dispatch tomorrow. Until then, take care. I love you all.
Edit: In solidarity with the various web sites that are going dark in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), this blog will not be updated tomorrow. Expect an update Thursday, January 19.
