I thought I’d start off this blog with a quick intro to myself, and what I plan to do on here, so you can get an idea of what you’re dealing with.
I’m Mark Cooper, and I’m an Englishman who transplanted to the USA in 2005. As for Minecraft, I became hooked on Mojang Specifications’ wondrous game late in 2010. Since then, when I’m not up to my neck in lava, I’ve been writing and drawing various Minecraft-related things, as well as making frequent contributions to The Shaft podcast (they might say “incessant contributions”). Any time you hear Mark Cooper, or Astragali, mentioned by the show’s hosts… that’s me.
There’ll be links in a later post as to where you can find my creations.
You can also find me on Twitter, under the name @AstragaliUSA (@Astragali was taken by some Italian theatre company – I’m sure they’re wonderful).
As for the posts themselves, they’ll most likely be ranging from my personal wish list of things that I’d like added to Minecraft, to more silly writings and pictures as the mood takes me, and opinions about how the game is progressing towards full release. I hope you’ll like them.
OK, that’s it from me for now. I’m nearly 90 minutes late for bed, and Mr. Sandman is getting impatient…
