Hello, folks. I’ve unofficially/officially changed the name of the show. Brief Conversations with Interesting People has now turned into Heavily Pixelated.
Q: Will this be the last name change, Scott?
A: I honestly don’t know.
A thing like this is always sort of evolving, I guess.
Q: Why “heavily pixelated”?
A: Pixels are often used in media to obscure things (see: a streaker at a baseball game). But, in the realm of video game people? Like me? Pixels can do the opposite. Pixels can simplify and clarify things.
I also like the rhythm of the name. I like the music of it. Say it again, out loud this time. One more time. Now count the number of syllables. (Note: you’re entitled to throw a series of haymakers in my general direction the next time you see me. I probably deserve it.)
Anyway, my friend Steven did a terrific job with the editing and the music in this. I’m especially fond of the opening theme. Every step Steven takes at this point feels like a good one.
This is my favorite episode. It’s centered around a used game store/collector’s paradise/competitive gaming dojo called A & C Games. A & C is in downtown Toronto. http://www.acgamesonline.com/ It’s huge, about the size of a small cornfield. A & C used to be a convenience mart that evolved into what it is now.
As always, if you have thoughts about how I should refine future episodes, please share. I’m need feedback.
Finally, thanks for listening. Sweet of you to do that.
Enough talk. Here we go.
