So Many Articles, So Little Time

November 1, 2012 Comments off

I bet some people have wondered where all of my articles on SWTOR have been! I have been super busy in real life, so I have been keeping my commitments on TORWars and Corellian Run, but I have not been posting much over here. I meant to start doing a Rant ‘N Rave every week, but I let that go to the wayside, unfortunately. I will pick that back up at some point, or perhaps not be so strict on the once-per-week thing.

Anyway, for now, I would refer you to my recent articles on TORWars.com on my Smuggler Weekly Column and on Corellian Run Radio on my PvP column, Tactical Strike. Read more…

How To Be Socially Awkward Even Among Nerds

July 31, 2012 1 comment

Awkward Is An Art

There is this blog I like to read (which unfortunately hasn’t been updated in a while) where the author likes to write about being socially awkward. The name of the blog is Awkward Is An Art. I love the funny stories about the dozens of ways this guy gets in trouble socially as a painfully lovable nerd.

I am reminded of this blog today, because I recently had a socially awkward moment. Not only that, but it was among people known for being socially awkward: nerds. Now, I want to say that Carla, Maer, Jason, and John are not even socially awkward. But it is funny that I was in the company of fellow gamer geeks.

Wait, You Were Talking?

I was recording the July Writers’ Roundtable Podcast for Corellian Run Radio (so hint, hint; go look it up here).

We started discussing the upcoming release of HK-51, and I had a little time to think about the question, as I was not the first in the cycle of writers to talk about it. A thought occurred to me that I could make a funny joke! That was my first mistake.

The joke was as follows: Carla would ask me what I thought about HK-51. As I am a big fan of HK-47 in KOTOR, I would reply, “Declaration: I am very excited for this, Master!” It would be perfect! I would be funny! I would be eternally loved by all HK-47 fans in the audience of Corellian Run Radio! What could go wrong?

My turn came up and I said my joke and was very proud…until I didn’t hear anyone laugh. I was kind of embarrassed; not even a chuckle! I recovered and started talking about how I wanted the questline to get HK-51 to be very long, and suddenly Carla says, “Drew, are you there?”

And that’s when I realized that my mic was muted.

You see, while recording, I muted my mic to answer a question my wife asked, and I forgot to unmute it. I hastily unmuted my mic and explained myself, and even slipped the joke into conversation again in a second, but I botched the delivery. Oh well.

The moral of the story: I shouldn’t try to be funny.
