I am tired as all hell today. Sadly, this isn’t even by choice. I just couldn’t fall asleep. So today I’ll be running off sheer will……aaaaaaand heaps of coffee. Yet, there is one positive to not being able to fall asleep last night. I got to watch a good amount of SGDQ. Yay?!?!
I knew I’d be up somewhat late as I wanted to catch the Tetris block. Why this was slated for such a late timeslot is way beyond me. Yet, it is what it is and so I figured I’d catch the Tetris runs, particularly the 2-players 1-controller race, and then crash. I’d just have to catch the Zelda runs when they were uploaded to YouTube.
That plan didn’t exactly work out. The Tetris block started way later than it was scheduled for. Still, I watched it in utter amazement as there is no way I could play Tetris: The Grand Master anywhere remotely as good as the runners. After that, the Zelda: A Link to the Past no sword all dungeons run took place. Still wide awake, I watched that as well. While that run was cool, it was more the commentary that made that run totally worth watching.
3AM rolls around and I’ve turned the iPad off. I’m staring at the ceiling. Craziness ensues. I start debating what games I’d speedrun. I start contemplating what categories I’d run on a game such as Super Metroid. Thoughts of grandeur fill my mind. Finally, sleep claims. Thankfully before I started documenting my crazy delusions of trying my hand at speedrunning.
Now here I sit. One cup of coffee already destroyed, and preparing to go make my second cup. I won’t be able to catch the last day of SGDQ 2017 as I’ll be travelling and that makes me sad. Yet, I’m travelling to go check out a new studio space, which means I’ll soon be doing more photography business. Before that all happens, I think I’ll go get more coffee and….oh, wait. What’s that Chrome? Twitch.TV wants me to visit? Right, here I come!
