Hey everyone,

So, not counting the short message I sent promoting "1,000 FuMPs", I haven't sent a proper "Luke Ski Update" in 4 months. So, what's been going on with me lately? Well, during that time I moved into a one-bedroom apartment in Burbank, and have taken all the necessary grown-up-person steps to become a legal resident of the state of California. It was all a big bucket of not-fun. On the plus side, back in mid-October, I got promoted to being a full-fledged storyboarder on "Mighty MagiSwords" at Cartoon Network. I've been making boards with my partner Zoe based on ideas that I wrote, and I have gone to the recording studio on a handful of occasions to record voices for future MagiSwords stuff. I do my best to be appreciative in the moment as much as possible, because I really am finally doing what I always wanted to do back in High School and College. Sometimes I catch myself having a big smile on my face without even realizing I was doing it. There's so much cool stuff I want to tell you all about that I am 100% not allowed to tell you yet, but as soon as I am allowed to, I'll be filling you all in. In any case, with both the bad and the good, it's all still been a huge adjustment, but I think I'm finally at a point of equilibrium here where I occasionally feel like my old self, hence my return to the FuMPcast and the eventual return of Bad Rapport. But for now, this 42-year-old new-orange-cat-owner (I named him Q*bert) needs to slam head-long into MarsCon mode. So hold on to your butts, because here comes 4 months worth of updates, listed in order of importance. So please read, click on the links, or at least look at the pretty pictures. Thanks again everyone, and I'll talk to you all again soon.
