Parker's Mind: Episode 19 - Operation: Doing Whatever it is I am Supposed to be Doing

New episode! Almost at episode 20 now. And sadly, almost at the end of the game. Next month on the 25th marks one year of Parker's Mind. Pretty exciting huh? I thought so too.
Here it is!

The BP Scandal Continues!

So not only have BP spilt incredible amounts of oil, and then photoshopped their photos, they've also been caught doing things instead of fixing the problem! And we have photographic proof right here!

So, y'know, these two helicopter pilots were tasked with flying up and photographing the carnage. Of course, these two slackers decided that they'd go blow up a Death Star instead. Helping to clean up oil spills are much more important than firing torpedoes into a small thermal exhaust port that is only two meters wide, and saving Yavin from destruction!

To make things worse, they decided that after destroying the Death Star, the planet of Caprica needed leveling. So not only has BP caused severe pollution, they've also put hundreds and thousands of innocent Cylons out of work! This is unacceptable!
One Cylon had this to say. "It's hard enough making a living, and putting food on the table without BP coming in and ruining it for us. Caprica was going to be my big final pay, which would set me up for retirement, but I now have to work in a grocery store to make ends meet!"

Next thing you know, they were teaming up with the Turanic Raiders and harassing the Hiigaran fleet, when all they were trying to do is return to their homeworld.

You'd think after all that, they'd go and actually do their job, but no, instead they return to their base camp to spend hours on Facebook, and have games of Counter-Strike. Can BP sink any lower?

I hope these people realize that their actions were all caught on camera, and that they recieve a severe penalty for what they have done. Think of those Cylons!

Parker's Mind: Episode 18 - Parkers in Space

New episode! It seems I broke my little trend of releasing episodes very quickly. I did say don't get used to it... Didn't I?
Anyway, it's set in space. Parker has to shut down the laser satellite network which is controlled by an orbital space station. Full of fun and adventure and David Bowie references.

I am going to attempt to make episode 19 with Kdenlive, a video editor for linux, as I have Ubuntu on my laptop, and I have been amping to give it a try.

Here it is!

An update.

No, I have not stopped Parker's Mind. The series is far from over. I have the next episode in the works. I am in the process of cutting the loading screens and then doing dialogue. I won't yet give an estimation as to when it will be done, as I am not sure. Let me just say the last few weeks have been very stressful in pretty much every aspect of life, especially for study. I am revising for the final exam of my course which will allow me to graduate and search for a proper IT job, as well as other things going on, so I haven't had much time to do the episode, and when I have, I haven't felt like doing it. I have not lost interest, far from it.
Also I'm going to try source recorder, even though Curtis bitches to hell about it, because if it can deliver smoother framerates than FRAPS, I'll also make another Psymonic Disasterpiece, as I got Garry's Mod working again. And I also need to get on the drawing boards for a new Dave, The Crazy Scientist episode.
But for now, back to study.

UPDATE: I have a quarter of the dialogue recorded.
