New header

I made a new blog header today to reflect some changes. Instead of just saying “a Minecraft blog”, now the tagline is “Minecraft and more”.

The things I enjoy about Minecraft connect with — fantasy art, art software, the world of gaming, girl geekery, science fiction, documentaries about creative people, Volvox, magnetars, ….

I’m having a great time collecting material for this blog, and I’ve been learning a lot. Right now I’m so frustrated with MC Edit that I’m ready to start learning Python so I could write a mod for the stupid thing. (Cartesian coordinates!! Really guys, would that be so hard?!)

What you’ll find here

Do you like  playing Minecraft in Survival Mode?  Building elaborate traps using redstone and tripwire? Fighting your way through the Nether? If so, this blog is probably not for you.

However, if you would like to build a world that is a giant birthday card for a friend and features a pizza made of lava…

and  surreal landscapes…

then you might enjoy hanging out here.

My favorite part of Minecraft is creating weird and beautiful worlds using editing software such as MC Edit, WorldPainter and Avanti.  If sometimes in the process I get hopelessly lost, fall into the Void and die, or accidentally bury myself under tons of rock — then so much the better!

Enjoy your stay here, and I hope you find some ideas to inspire your own world-building!
