My absence and upcoming projects

Hello everyone. If you’re wondering why I’ve been absent since May, it’s because I’ve been dealing with life. Specifically, I’ve been feeling down in general, and I’ve not had many ideas for my podcast. Along with that, I’ve been working at a new job that I started in early June, my family got a new puppy, and I haven’t had much privacy to record in either my room or my basement, neither of which are great places to record in to be honest. Along with these, I just haven’t been feeling motivated to create any episodes, nor have I thought of any good topics for content.

I feel like at some point, I will get over this, but until that day, this site will probably be pretty barren. I am working on other projects, which might come up here, but they are mostly personal projects that have no real place on the internet. Projects like calculator applications for a Ti-83 Plus that assist with my job, or a Disney Parks-themed D&D (which I use loosely) setting, or how I’m going to move a large, heavy desk out of my bedroom and get rid of it.

So for now, I just want to say that I hope whomever is reading this is doing well, that I promise to make new content soon (since I am planning things, but the things are in their infancy right now), and that I will not back down, just… I will slow down.

Thank you,

Trader Nexan

Tomorrowland and Awesome Aesthetics

Thanks for coming, everyone. I’ve taken some time and gotten an episode done for this week (finally), and it’s about Tomorrowland! This is the first part in a two-part “special” about Tomorrowland’s aesthetic after the 1994 update, and why I think it’s great.

The first part is all about the history of how Tomorrowland looked, though, to provide some context on how it changed, as well as paint an image of how it looked when The Magic Kingdom first opened!

As always, comments on the website (http://trader-nexan.live) will be open for you to use and tell me how I’m doing!

Sorry, no new episode this week, or next

Due to scheduling (both personal, as well as my school schedule), I haven’t had time to record an episode for this week, and I am going to be out of town and without a microphone all weekend starting on Thursday, so I will not be able to record an episode for next Monday. I’m planning on something good for the following week, so stay posted!

Update Number 2 – I don’t have a lot of time

Simply put, I lack time in my personal life right now due to schoolwork, homework, and my job. The episode audio has more details.

On another note, please let me know what you think about the podcast so far, and what you think about my podcast artwork!

Episode 3 – Re-imagining Epcot, Part 1 – World of Motion

Guys, I spent like 2 days on this between researching/writing and recording. This is also the first episode that I spent time actually¬† writing instead of just winging it with the recording! I did (honestly) go off-script in some places, but that’s really not too much of anything to go on about.

Got something you want to add, comment on, or just tell me? Comment below!

Trader Nexan News Network – Episode 2: Epcot/WDW Rant

I decided to rant/comment on the use of sponsors at some old (partially extinct) Epcot attractions and how sponsors at Epcot and Walt Disney World can both be good and seriously harm the life of attractions.

Unrelated to the actual episode, I’ll be creating a website/blog for the podcast soon enough that will allow for commenting (within reason) and let people leave me notes and stuff. Until then, just mention me on Twitter (@nexangames) and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Trader Nexan News Network – Episode 1: What Am I Doing?

No, seriously, what am I doing here? I don’t know what this podcast is going to be about, and I make that VERY clear in this first “pilot” episode.

Also, check out my creepy Sims 4 Avatar. I need something new.
