So… I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who for at least 25 years. I loved the Back to the Future trilogy. I’m a huge fan of Lost. I wanted to be a long time fan of FlashForward, but it got canceled. Now, there’s Terra Nova, which started out to be a little cheesy and “issue of the week” but has turned into something awesome… and hopefully, it doesn’t get canceled.
What I’m displaying here, I think it’s obvious, is a love for time travel. In particular, time travel stories are awesome for their potential and very few people take advantage of that potential (the exception being the ones listed above). So, I’m going to say that I want to join that group and take advantage of some cool time travel storytelling.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ve got a lot of projects on my plate but I have something that can already convert to be part of that. Time travel can be cool.
What am I talking about?
In Lost, the cool parts of time travel were the Losties discovering and interacting with the past. FlashForward showed everyone the future and we watched as they made their way to that point (I think the book was better, but isn’t it almost always?). Back to the Future was all about changing the past (accidentally) and changing things back through various means. Doctor Who is all about interacting with historical events. Terra Nova is heading in the direction Lost did, bringing up mysteries and hopefully getting a chance to explore them.
Why not create a story around a found bit of historical weirdness?
I won’t name this thing, I won’t promise that it’ll be anything beyond written, and I won’t even give you a hint about what I’m planning other than to say it’ll be something cool. Here I go, saying something you’ll get to hear from time to time on my new website:
Waaaaaaay back in 1994 when I was in the Navy and deployed to Okinawa, Japan, I met a group of individuals playing a game called VGA Planets. The DOS version of the game, VGA Planets 3, was the version they were playing where you could build ships, have battles, and mine planets on your way to galactic domination. The game itself has moved on but VGA Planets 3 lives on in the new Planets Nu!
I’m limeflavored on the game and I invite everyone I know to come on over and join me as I am looking for some quality games against people I know in a game I’ve come to love.
Lime Flavored.com’s new 2012 look is now officially RELEASED for 2012 in 2011!
Yeah, I couldn’t wait, either.
If you are reading this, then you are already witnessing the new Lime Flavored.com website. Think it’s silly to say that? It isn’t… let me tell you why.
In order to have this website ready for the January 1, 2012 launch, I had to begin working on it at the beginning of November… and then the spammer comments started rolling in, BEFORE the site was even live. How ridiculous is that? That isn’t all, though… let me tell you what some of the comments WERE!
“I can’t see this website in Firefox, there must be something wrong.” No, there isn’t.
“This is my favorite website!” Really? This partially built, unsearchable website is your favorite?
“I’d like to buy some of those.” Some of what?
Enough of the dripping sarcasm… welcome to the new website! This will be THE go to place for everything that is Lime Flavored… podcasts, fiction, newsletters, columns, and all kinds of other stuff I haven’t thought up yet. Yeah, I’m cool like that.
So, if you like the look, the feel of cotton… I mean of this website, stop by and see stuff.
