The Evolution of KP² Studio

Many, many years ago, a production studio by the name of Lunar Productions came to light. 6 years afterward, the first book was officially published: "Dawn of Discovery."

Since then, four more books have been published, and a video production company, Japanoblog, sprung forth.

Now, it has come time for another revolution: the evolution of KP² Studio.
How KP² Studio came to be - the merger of Lunar Productions and Japanoblog

Why we chose KP² Studio


Since August 2014, both I and Keat now have the initials "K" (for Kyle and Keat) and "P" (for…obvious reasons). Since both of our initials are "KP", we decided to square it and become "KP²". The "Studio" is describing our creative mindset and not limiting ourselves to typical production methods (and the domain "kp2.studio" was available!). As of January 1st, 2018, KP² Studio was born!

Long Live Lunar Productions


Since Lunar Productions started, it’s decade-long run had been great, but the name and the production flow was…for lack of a better phrase, running dry. Japanoblog had taken over, and in just about 2 years, gained a lot of traction while both me and Keat ran all over Japan.

Now, Lunar Productions is changing gears, and has evolved into KP² Studio (website still under development). With this comes new branding, new marketing, new logos, new website(s), and more, and that’s just the start. All future publications will no longer bear the "Lunar Productions" name and logo, and will instead bear "KP² Studio" with the signature red color (or monochrome, if necessary).

Will Japanoblog continue?


Yes, but not as Japanoblog. Japanoblog will merge into KP² Studio and become one in the same, as KP² Studio will become what Lunar Productions wanted to be all along: a creative production studio (hence the name).

The Current Publications


If you want a copy of anything published under Lunar Productions, you can still find that available at http://store.kp2.studio, as everything has been migrated to the new name.

Post-Government Shutdown/October Progress

Derpy cat - why not?

I decided to put up a derpy cat. My reasoning? Why not.

Anyway, it's been a while since my last post. Since the Government shutdown lasted an agonizing 16 days (at least, agonizing since I've been an adult, since the last one was in 1996 when I was too young to know the difference), I've heard more than enough about the parks closing, veterans storming the gates, furloughed paychecks, federal services that closed, etc.

Since the Government shutdown is now over (as a seemed force-of-hand by the Republican party), hopefully this process can be easier to proceed.

Anyway, government techno jargon aside, here's what's been keeping me busy:
  • I've picked up progress on WNC Local again, and it seemed that my thought process almost repeated itself since I worked for a few hours only to realize that the work was already done (yeah, I feel stupid). I've been working on the front end aspects and it seems to be coming along nicely. According to the original timeframe, we are right on track, but I'm hoping to move the timeframe up some.
  • Since we launched the new Shadow Dev site, there were a few things that weren't quite finished. I believe that I have patched up those few things and polished up, including the services pages. I was able to write a posting about the Q4 expectations and celebrated 8 years of Shadow Dev. It's not completely glorious, but it's better than completely shutting down.
  • After reviewing the analytical data, I realized that Two Cats wasn't getting any traffic. I realized that the site wasn't active and it had to do with some misplaced site files within the internal file structure from the new Shadow Dev design launch. I took about 15 minutes and remedied that today. The site itself isn't fully functioning, but I've decided to pick up the coding again.
  • Basically, here's my work docket: WNC Local, CityFix, OmniCard, Two Cats Studios, Lunar Productions Beta, Zoomiform, and ScrumIt (and eWaiter, but it has a long way to go). Yeah - that's everything I have so far.
  • I'm also working on (again) integrating the WePay API into the services to help online charges and auto-payments. It's been a challenge and I believe I'm up to it, but it will just take time.

In (what's left of) my personal life:
  • I started watching Yu Gi Oh on Hulu. I know it's been over a decade since I've seen the series, but at least I can now watch the series in order and finish up the series (since after Duel City, the new series started - I don't know (or care) what the name of the series was, because I stopped watching it).
  • Keat and I attended War of the Wings last week, and it was a lot of fun. One of the many things I can say about it is that it was a lot more comfortable than previous WoW's. The temperature never reached about 75, and the nights were never below 60, which meant that the heat wasn't too unbearable and the nights were nice and cozy under the blankets, but never enough to bring out the cloaks/capes for warmth. There were a lot of other items that were fun, but I won't go into it here because it will take up 5 pages of text. If you want to know, ask me, because I have a great story about an idiot on the Archery range.

And, just for good measurement, here's a comic that I can relate to as far as Retail work:
Retail jobs are obsolete
