It was a pleasant stay, but now I'm back from temporary sanity

I finished Doom 3 this weekend. I'm glad I took my
time with it. It was a really fun game. Now I'm looking forward to playing
Halflife 2.

I'm working with the Doom 3 editor now, for me this is almost more fun than playing the game. I think I'm going to
make my own multiplayer map.

I spent some time working with Polyclay this weekend. I worked on a couple of covered eggs, some beads, and a sculpted
relief from some images of Mayan rulers in their elaborate head dresses. I want to do more of this kind of work.
I have always been fascinated with Mayan and Aztec art.

I need to do some more sanding, and then I'll put a few pictures up.

Update: Here is a picture of the Mayan inspired piece I did.

Cool new site.

A friend of mine just launched a new website that everyone should check out. Sonic Breakdown lets you identify the music you like and provides information on new releases, concerts, and news. The site lets you weed out all of the crap and only provides information for the artists you care about.

Did you hear something?

We have been spending our nights playing Doom 3. This is the scariest game I have ever played. I'm talking about having nightmares here. I was walking down the hall last night and had to stop for a second, cause there might be a monster around the corner. Id Software has really done a great job with this one. The graphics are amazingly realistic and the game does a great job of pulling you into its little fantasy world. I highly recommend it to anyone into these kinds of games. Oh, and don't let your little kids play this game, they will be scarred for life.
