RE: [-empyre-] some introduction ::

Only want to add that all of this is what keeps me in video - in which the
spectator is often locked into the development of another world; it's a
chance to present inextricably complicated themes as experience.

As far as advanced tools go, who knows? There are times I've been working
with what turns out 'ahead of its time,' and times when I'm hopelessly
backwards. One works with whatever is around. I'm using Blender Publisher
now which is quite recent, and trying to study a bit of Turbo Pascal,
which is ancient...
