 Because I basically never remember to actually do this on sunday, and when I do I usually forget about what there is to actually chat about.

Anyhow, I am reminded once again that there are a bunch of new people around here, so now's as good a time as any to bring up the Salad Skype chat(s) again. For those of you who don't know, we have two main skype group chats (a sfw and an nsfw one) that is open to join by anyone in the group, Not all conversation is mindcrack related. We're mostly just bunch of nerds chatting about fun things, and you don't even have to actively contribute if you don't want to. You're more than welcome to lurk. To join in, just get in contact with anyone already in the group to have them add you on skype so that you can be added to the group. In this case, I'm someone already in both groups so if you're interested in joining, just PM your interest in joining with your skype username, I'll add you as a contact, and pull you into the chat.

As for Mindcrack-related stuff.

> The huge 3-year secret project has a tentative release date of early-mid March. It's confirmed to contain multiple episodes and almost certainly involves minecraft. There's tentative speculation that this is very closely related to the big secret behind BTC joining Mindcrack. There's also unconfirmed but highly plausible word of what it actually is floating around. Rumours that hit too close to home tend to mysteriously disappear on the mindcrack subreddit but there are no cheeky mods over here to stop our own speculations. Feel free to add your own in the comments below.

> There's still to be details released for it, but after last year's charity marathon it was mentioned that there would probably be a mini-marathon surrounding one of the extra-life events later this month so keep an eye out for that. If anyone does know any of the details on that, it'd be super awesome if you passed them along.

> The 7D2D server is being reset due to some major bugs in the save file. So if you're still looking to try and get into the series, now's a good time to join in when the action starts and not have a swathe of backlog to watch before getting in on the action. I guess now's also a good time to start a bit of discussion on your thoughts on the 7D2D content now that it's been out for a bit. I personally haven't watched more than a couple (fairly enjoyable) videos from Guude's perspective. Unfortunately his couple of hour longs (and in one case 3 hour long) videos put me off so I haven't been able to properly get into the series. But what do you guys think so far?

> Team Canada is baaaaack! This time they're playing Drobnovian Knights and they all still play so well off of each other. I don't know about you guys but I've missed their banter.

> Even if you don't watch the Mindcrack podcast that often or at all, I highly suggest you check out their PAX South episode from last week. It was absolutely hilarious. Sev is absolutely adorable when he laughs, and Kurt's unexpected humour is always the best. You can check it out here.

And to end, how have you guys' weeks been? Up to anything exciting? Got any valentines day plans such as mooching off of all the post v-day chocolate sales and sitting alone marathoning yt vids like me? Got any v-day fics in the works? I should probably do something myself. Nebtho Aprication month is still disastrously incomplete, and I have a Chevadus sequel that I owe people. Whoops.

Also, because I'm terrible at keeping this weekly, maybe I should break the format and switch to a monthly chat instead. What are your thoughts on that? Maybe one day I'll also kidnap one of the admin's powers so I can sticky these things myself instead of having to wake up the sleeping fluff-balls. :P Who wants to help with my plans for mutiny?

Happy mid-week not sunday,
- sunset.

*wiggles excitedly*

Team Canadaaaaa! I watched the first episode of their new series, haven't gotten around to the next two yet. I'll probably watch one during breakfast tomorrow. ^^ Loving it so far, although Beef. Beef please, you have a worse sense of direction than I do and that's really saying something.

I'm still sloooowly working through the first episode of 7D2D (from Guude's POV). It's so long. ;A; So maybe I'll just start again with the reset? Maybe. Don't know.

My week has been thoroughly a letdown so far. Homework as far as the eye can see. *sheds a single tear* On the plus side, one of my classes allows 5 late days throughout the semester! I'm probably going to be using one. >.> Any pre-college computer science people, this is my advice to you: don't start your programming assignments late. I did buy some girl scout cookies today, tho. So nomnom for me. V-day is going to be as uneventful as usual, though, hilariously, one of my classes has a midterm review session that day.

Still slowly making my way through the next chapter of the SS fic I owe Koi. >.< I promise it's getting worked on!

(*waves a candle and fork* mutinyyyyy)

I'm already sharing with my roommates, you can have a couple too. :D *shoves cookies at you*

Nice job getting an internship! Even if your free time goes down the drain, they are great on resumes.

^-^ Hapy to wait. ^-^

Beef has the worst sense of direction, but Etho's is also quite bad, can't wait till they get split up...

Guude mentioned that he was being a travel agent in that regard not to long ago and I think Doc confirmed to be a part of this as well...but that's all the Info I have on that. =b

So 7D2D is gonna reboot...probably a good thing after what I ehard about the issues, but still annoying for the guys. I've been keeping a list of who uploaded what but I haven't been able to watch most of it yet. Maybe with the TryAgain! I#ll do better. =b

Valentine Fics sound fun... If I weren't allreay late with two stories as it stands, I'd love to write something extra-gen to break up the flow for that particular day XD
Then again I'm now stuck at home; sick and in pain, so maybe I'll see if I can write some to distract myself.
... Although, the more likely thing to happen is that I'll end up working on what's currently my favourite project instead... <.<

Still need to try and catch a hold of sunset for a few minutes too at some point, to find out if my vision is to specific and a thing I've been noticing is actually not as specific as I think. Xb

Actually, now that I think about it, Pak mentioned recently how he'll be traveling somewhere at the end of the month.
Of course that could be anything, but the way he said it makes me think that he was possibly talking about this mini-charity-marathon-thingy too.

Looking forward to finding out the actual list =D

Team Canada is back, and this time they're taking everything =D Etho is a bad influence.

Also funny to see Etho's reaction to the 'moment' Beef and Pause had, runaway leaving all the doors open...awkward Etho tee hee.

7d2d. I've been dipping in and out of, mostly on streams. I may start watching YouTube with the reset...

That podcast had me laughing; convention podcasts are the best.

My weeks gone successfully, I've finally convinced my new doctor to put me on the medication that my old doctor had me on, so should be back to healthy, or at least healthy enough for life XD

And theirs usually more of them, and all topics are somewhat unplanned, and of course technical difficulties as the camera always seems to shut off at some point.

*cough* im slightly excited
I live their dynamic, still one of the best trios, imo.
I've watched 7D2D here and there, it's a good series, just not my cup of tea, can of beer, etc
Eh, i've had worse weeks, had better *looks at the mounting pile of revision and homework and kicks it further under the bed*
I also have writing to catch up on, i've been so ill recently, and school is a son of a nice lady. So much to do, not enough time ;;;

Vechs POV is the only one I've been watching, 7dtd isn't entirely my cup of tea but I can watch Vechs play it for his personality and his sexy voice makes anything good....did I say that last part out loud oops lol ;)

Wow. I watched some of the Pax South podcast and it's hilarious. I say some of because I stopped watching about 25 minutes in because I was laughing too loudly for the time of day and went to watch old DvZ videos instead. I want to watch more of it today, though. Might be one of the best podcasts yet.

Haven't got round to watching the Pax South Podcast yet, but will eventually.

As for Valentine's plans, my SO and I celebrated early (Wednesday of this week) as we thought we were both going to be elsewhere on the day its self; turns out we're not so we got a movie and dinner date day out and get to have movie day in with pizza too :D

We went to see Deadpool on Wednesday and laughed our heads off, definitely got to go see it again for all the self references and nerdy references in it, also cos it's freaking awesome :D

Edit: Have miss posted this comment three times now, must be tired *looks at clock* 2am huh? Yup my bed is a calling.

Pretty excited for Team Canada! In addition, not really Mindcrack related but still, Coe's Quest is finally starting up! I am so extremely excited for that.

If anyone does know any of the details on that, it'd be super awesome if you passed them along.

For those who missed it:
Guude talked about this in one of his 7D2D videos. (S2E4 - Oh No, Stuck)
I don't have the exact timestamp, but he goes over what it is, when it is, how it works and who is participating. For more details, I suggest you check that out, but here's what will be of general interest to us:

It's over the course of four days (Feb 23rd - 26th); with streams at specific timeslots. Mindrackers that will be attenting (unless some last minute things come up) will be Guude, Seth, Sev, Chad, Doc, Arkas, Pyro, Baj, Pak and Nebris.
Which makes a total of 11.
