Halfway there...

I have been looking at my website, and boy is it out of date!

There is a photo album link that does not work, a link to a business that I lost, and a lot of small things that is just not correct anymore.

Soon, will be up to date again.

So, what am I up to these days? I am listening to music from Magnatune, mostly. I bought a lifetime membership for US$ 200 or something like that. I have been using music from that site in my videos for some time now, and they just keep getting better. The music site, not my videos...

Usually I make two videos at the beginning of the trip, one about the previous holiday in Namibia, and then one from the previous trip on board. I almost never have time for video editing at home anymore, as I have an interesting life, and prefer it that way.

So, here is the video of my previous trip in Namibia:

I am quite proud of this video, as I think I managed to get a nice balance of using music to drown out the noise, and then also get the peace and quiet from home in there. Also, I like how, at the end, I managed to find some footage of nature, even though I was surrounded by all this ugly civilization.

So, what do I do when I am not editing videos or listening to music? I am playing Vega Strike. It's an awesome game that has been ten years in the making, and it looks it. It's a space simulator with thousands of solar systems to visit and explore, and a rich community of people involved in it.

So, it's exactly in the middle of this trip now, and I am looking forward to getting home. Boy, do I miss my family.
