Silence Broken?

Hey everyone. 
I haven't done a blog in a while, nor have I been very active on this site the last few weeks. This is has been ridiculous, especially given my recent S-Rank in L.A. Noire and my need to write about it, and there's also Capcom and their spectacular jaw-dropping public relations suicide. That story is like trying to contain an atomic bomb for me, the amount of material for a writing is palpable. Sometimes I just catch myself screaming at inanimate objects, as if I am writing a blog here. Have I illustrated the picture enough for you? I am watching a train wreck that's caught on fire, and then exploded again, and then it was doused in gasoline in order to stop the flames...and I can't write about it.
 
So, lets get one thing out of the way: I am not dead...Yet.
The last few weeks have been a continual lesson in humility, the job market is...uh...trying to say "rough" nicely. It's one thing to get turned down in a job, it's another to get turned down on a consistent basis. I am simply not used to this. You add in the factor that my extended family is visiting the home this week, and you have a storm of...well...crap-storm at every turn.
 
The next part is going to be difficult, so here I go.
I've decided until my prospects change, that I will be temporarily halting blog activity in general. I've had dry spells in the past due to personal issues, and it's kinda weird how every time I think I get into a groove-of-things, something pops up that eats up my time. In this case, I've decided the issue is pretty serious. I'll still be haunting a certain IRC chat-room, and playing games of course, but the rest of my resources I spend focusing writing things in long elaborated states, will be spent. Let's just say when I go to my new college this coming October, I think I'll be running into a similar situation.
 
I'm hoping that I will get something soon. PAX is just around the corner, and yes, I will be making another video
Maybe I'll get lucky tomorrow, who knows. Until then, consider this my official deceleration of blog hibernation. I hope it's a short winter.   
 
On a more happier note: There's this horrible thing.
Look at that awkward son-of-a-bitch. Not a fan of that guy.

What the hell is up with Giant Bomb's blogging community? You're on hiatus, Dalai has just gotten back into blogging, dankempster teased a bit, Sweep hasn't been doing much, and I still need to get on my next blog. Something is definitely amiss. In fact... there we are. Might as well set the scene.

@Video_Game_King: The idea that Sephiroth is on the war-path, is the most explainable thing so far.

Odd, because I don't remember referencing a war path, nor do I really remember any wars in FF7. Have you bought into Reeve's bullshit about the Jenova Wars?

@Video_Game_King: The music you linked, is the track that plays whenever someone finds whatever dead thing Sephiroth left behind, no? Perhaps I'm reading too much into it. I'm running off of a few hours sleep.

I remember hearing it when the group first encountered that snake impaled on a spiky tree or whatever.
