If the entries in this blog so far are anything to go by, a random bit of day-to-day life rambling is very out of character for me.  So let me just get it out of the way.  I got my wisdom teeth out on Thursday.

************************************************************!!!!  My face hurts!!!  And this is the internet so I can complain as much as I want!  Exclamation points!!!

Okay, I’m done.

Now, where were we?  Oh, yes.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO: ObJective?

Originally a ‘serious’ parody of Red Vs. Blue (an online machinima series which was a parody of military life), ObJective went through several re-writes before becoming its own, fairly well-defined series.  It exists now, as it did then, an action-drama set in a non-specific science fiction universe shot in the Halo engine with plenty of silliness and funny lines and characterisation to keep things entertaining.

I currently have the first arc/season/whatever of eight five-ish minute episodes sitting on Smarmy’s (my computer’s) desktop, barring episode seven, which was destroyed in a freak idiocy accident.  The first three scripts are even up on FaceBook, just to show everyone that I actually do this stuff.  Episodes 9-11, and the start of 12, all sit tantalisingly beneath the first season, reminding me that I have a whole lot of other stuff to do.

Anyway, the basic storyline (of the first arc) follows Sean, Snare and Price as they escape from their Attack-of-the-Clones style clone soldier breeding and training facility.  Sean (played by my brother, Stevie) has discovered that he has telekinetic powers (thankyou, Forge Mode) and is escaping with his team-mate and supposed-brother, Price (played by Rob Offner, a genius friend of mine who will probably appear on this blog repeatedly in the future).  Price is convinced that Sean is his brother even though they are all supposed to be clones of each other.  Their sergeant/captain/commander-guy Snare tags along when they promise money and that his homicidal urges won’t be regarded as some twisted kind of self-loathing from being trapped with a million copies of himself.

They are chased by Evan (played by my buddy Paul) and Kennet (played by me).  Along the way, several other antagonists and random characters are included, all played by people on my FaceBook friends list.  And my ‘friends of friends’ list.  In theory.

See, that’s the biggest problem with ObJective – the fact that all the casting and stuff was done in theory and was always going to be a bitch to organise.

Oh, that and I realised my characterisation was actually terrible when looked at by random people on the internet.

And I lost interest.

Sort of like what I’m doing now.

P.S.  As an addition to my previous entry, I have also just bought Naruto: Rise of a Ninja, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Lost Planet: The Game Without a Secondary Title.  And I’ve gotten interested in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, and Stevie just bought Bioshock 2.
Looks like my girlfriend’s not going to have to break up with me after all.  (Apparently WoW is grounds for divorce…  Makes sense.)

P.P.S.  My girlfriend’s name is Kirstyn.  I just don’t want her to feel left out with all the names I’ve been dropping today.
