JuIc3 update....UpduIc3? JuIdate. Eh.

Hello all! It's been a good while since I wrote...really anything over here, so I thought I'd make an update. For funsies and things of the sort. That up there is a picture of me conducting one of my middle school choirs in my home town. Believe me, they aren't as calm and collected as the picture makes them look. 

But yes, music education has been good. Of course my wife (Malika) and I are raising up our daughter to the best of our abilities. Our activities include dancing along to Earth Wind and Fire, as well as tummy time, bazooka baby, binge watching kawaii anime, and of course reading bed time stories at night. 

Life is good! Being a dad has certainly brought challenges to the table. Obviously I can't sit down and spend hours on in playing video games anymore. I also have to balance my free time with the Mrs. so that we don't go crazy. Teamwork is everything here. But we have a lot of fun and are enjoying the experience. 

Of course I'm still devoting myself to gaming and being a smelly weeb. I actually write over at Culture of Gaming, an up and coming site that's continuing to grow. I work with some great guys! I've really enjoyed writing over there and getting to know the team. It works well, because they understand that I'm busy being a dad and teaching. I do still get my hands on some awesome projects, though!

I don't know how many of you have heard of Eon Gaming, but I got to do an interview with them. They are the makers of the GCHD, an HDMI converter for the GameCube that displays games in progressive scan and allows you to customize visual output. Really cool group, and I enjoyed working with them a ton. There's no better way to play Melee and get the real experience. 

There's a ton of really good anime coming out lately. Cells at Work, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, Goblin Slayer, Zombie Land Saga, The Promised Neverland, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, I mean shoot I could go on. I've had a lot of time to take care of my daughter at home, making it possible to binge my way through all of Dragon Ball Super. It was...alright. 

Gotta love Fry Day. Anyway, all bodes well! Staying busier than ever, but enjoying every moment. Hope you all are still enjoying video games, spewing liquids at each other, and having a good ol' time!

P.S. I'm going to miss Reggie's big, meaty Nintendo loving face so much.

About JuIc3one of us since 9:12 AM on 02.12.2017

Middle aged teacher, otaku and gaming nerd, JuIc3 is somewhat of a lost Destructoid relic that just doesn't know what to do with himself.

Former Community-Manager/Editor here at Destructoid, I now take solace in the community, where I sparingly blog about whatever the hell strikes up my fancy.

If you like my stuff, be sure to check out my wife, Malika chan. Contrary to popular opinion, we aren't conjoined twins or anything like that. That would certainly make things awkward.


Anime reviews guideline - I rate my anime series with stars. Star ratings correspond as follows:

★★★★★ - a true masterpiece! An enticing story, amazing visuals, and characters that will stick with you forever. There are few out there that achieve this level of excellence.

★★★★ - a fine show. Some little quirks or pacing issues, but nothing to ruin the overall presentation. The show is bound to have many fans, and should be relevant for years to come.

★★★ - good, but not amazing. Noticeable flaws that will keep the show from truly being embraced by the masses. Likely to have a favorable following, with many good elements to be observed.

★★ - a weaker offering. Features some enjoyable moments, but overall feels very flat and bland. Lacking of originality, a strong hook, and features characters that are forgettable.

★ - anime was a mistake. No coherent point of interest or pacing to be found. Lacking in style, taste, and talent. Don't go near it, for your own safety...
