As you may have read today, I’ve left my old place of employment. It was an amicable exit, I wish nothing but the best for everyone there, and you can read my farewell to GamesRadar over there. However, THIS personal update is to let you know that you’ll be seeing a whole lot more of me here on Laser Time. And if you wanted to help me during this transition, let me tell you how…
As I hope you know, I’ve been recording many, many podcasts here at Laser Time, including my beloved Cape Crisis. I’ve been supporting everyone with their shows, and they’ve supported me even more with mine, and I’ll be expanding that commitment from now on. You may have noticed I’ve posted a few news stories over the weekend, and with my newfound free time, it means you’ll be seeing more like that. I’ll be on streams, on podcasts, making posts for the site, and figuring out how best to help Chris make this the best site it can be.
Now, this transition isn’t the easiest, and if you’d like to help me immediately and directly, there’s a VERY easy way to do this on the Laser Time Bandcamp page. Over the weekend, me and Cape Crisis co-hosts Chris, Brett, and Dave all recorded a couple exciting comic movie commentary tracks. As Age of Ultron is nearly here, we decided to make some fun new commentaries for both The Avengers and Iron Man 3. You were going to rewatch these again anyway in the run up to Age of Ultron, so why not enjoy them along with the Laser Time crew? We can all prepare for Phase 3 together!
You can purchase each of the commentary tracks on the Laser Time Bandcamp page for as low as $1.99 apiece (with the option to pay more). Buying those or any of the other tracks on the Bandcamp store will really help me out in the short term and I’d greatly appreciated it during this transitional period. They’re all great, but if you’re looking for suggestions, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Godzilla ’98, and Nightmare on Elm Street 2 are great place to start.
Now, I’m very aware that the just ended (and very helpful) IRL commentary drive was the final such commentary set for the site. That is totally true, and this is an entirely separate thing that’s all on me. Apologies for this is coming on short notice, but these types of things can be really sudden. And this is a smaller situation than the last one. These are merely two new commentary tracks that I think the Cape Crisis and general Laser Time audience will really enjoy as Age of Ultron approaches. And if you want to give them a listen and buy them in the next few weeks, it would REALLY help me. But I understand if you can’t at the moment. That’s fine too, honest.
However you feel about those commentaries (or me in general), I’ll definitely be around a lot more on LT in the future – and seriously, follow me on Twitter if you’ve yet to do that. I appreciate all your thoughts and well wishes at this time. As Dr. Manhattan says “Nothing ever ends.”
