Well, let's start the necromantic ritual: This year, the blog was admittedly not the main focus, with only a few posts. BUT this was mainly due to new and exciting projects: I started recording gaming videos ("Let's Plays" for YouTube), while rapidly professionalising. At some point, I set up a proper channel called Professor Plays! Check it out, I even have an SFX intro. Highlight was my ability to play and upload the Wasteland 3 Alpha at launch due to holidays.

More creative energy went into the overdue continuation of my musical side project Commander Deep, with the release of its second Album Rematerialisation In Finity. The production volume is approximately 100x higher than the last one, featuring multiple instruments, better SFX and proper artworks.
Gradient of Disorder is still around, with our first album rapidly steadfastly approaching completion. Only vocals and a few instrumental parts for one song need to be recorded, with eight songs being already mixed. Expect it 2020, for real.

On the scientific front, I wrote an article about magnetic fields for "Der Skeptiker" that can be ordered here. Next year will probably see a few public education talks about 5G and why you don't need to hide under a stone because of it.

During traveling for conferences and meetings in north america, I made a nice travel video.

But most importantly, I got a new position (to be exactly half of one) for research using an intraoperative MRI that will be online in the near future. This cutting edge imager will offer exciting possibilities.

I summarise: 2019 was a productive and successful year!

Happy solstice, have a christmas and stay epic!

Self-Advertisement: Let's play with me

On my relentless quest to try out different things, I now started to record some Let's play videos on Youtube. So far, I tried out a few things, in german, but I guess I will mostly show spotlights of cool semi-current strategy games, play some dota2 and also delve into ancient video games (veeeeery ancient).
Check it out if you like!

Stay epic!

Awesome Games Done Quick 2019

Admittedly a bit late as it started yesterday, but one of my favourite streaming events of the year, Awesome Games Done Quick, ist happening this week. It is an event that shows incredible speedruns of video games to raise funds for charity. Donations go to the Prevent cancer Foundation and currently the Castlevania block is running.

Stay epic!
