Since I've been back I haven't been posting as much on my blog but more on my fb page as it's easier and faster but I have been working on Gundam related things relatively consistently. I did lose a lot of my motivation after the earthquake hit though. I don't know why. It didn't affect me directly but... I don't know. I was in a weird state. I couldn't focus on anything really so I just threw myself into games for a while.
Up until that point I was working on the Titanium Finish RX-78-2 and was trying to set up the basement.
So let's talk about that right now.
There was a room in my basement that's wasn't being used for anything expect storage... and there isn't even really a lot of things in there. Some tools and some old technology. It's a really nice room though. Finished flooring, painted, double french doors, pot lights.
I decided to confiscate it.
I would have liked to have had a wood grain finished table like I had in Japan but that's not that big of a deal. It's just that I did ALL of my Gunpla on that table in Japan and it sometimes feels strange doing it in another setting. State dependent learning maybe. I had everything set up perfectly... but that took 3 years to get right.
|Gonna miss this thing...|
|Gonna be spending a lot of time here.|
|Currently playing. The old speakers can still kick out enough power and bass for my purposes. RIP Guru.|
|Testing out the lighting from the pot lights. Position 1. Dark.|
|Position 2. Dark but better.|
|High position, high contrast. Better but impractical. These shots are a bit inaccurate. It's actually brighter than this down there.|
It's still going to take a while for everything to get setup properly but... It's going to happen.
It has to happen. The best part of all of this is that it has cost me NOTHING. It's just stuff that was laying around unused. That in itself makes me feel good.
This is the moment I've been waiting for. It's time to commence; "Operation Unification".
