It’s been a long time since my last post (428 days to be precise) and quite a bit has kept me busy. However, I’m going to keep it short and just focus on 2017 Extra Life. Brent and I continued with It’s Friday! to a total of 24, we’ll call them, episodes. We also did independent 2017 Extra Life marathons and raised over $1,300 for Children’s Hospital LA. Not too bad for a couple guys in LA.
I’m also debating one final marathon before the end of the year in hopes of getting us over $1,500. The recent release of Desert Bus VR has me leaning in that direction. For the unaware, the original Desert Bus was a trick mini-game on the unreleased Sega CD game Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors. In the mini-game you drove a bus from Tucson, Arizona, to Las Vegas, Nevada, in real time at a maximum speed of 45 MPH. This would take approximately 8 hours. Because of the time needed and extremely boring game play it’s been used by a number of people to raise money for charity, most prominently Desert Bus for Hope.
8 hours in VR could be a real challenge, but one I’m willing to consider doing FOR THE KIDS (#FTK). Another idea is to do my first raid in Destiny 2 (either Destiny actually) live on stream. Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks.
