Man I just found this awesome Music Dealy thingy.

Its a matrix of tones, the up and down are pitch, and left to right is the timing. If you right click you can copy and paste the coordinate schemes.



Problem slueth come to an end.

Sadly one of the better things on the internet is coming to a close. He's finishing up the story, and there will be books, but it is over. If you don't know, MS Paint Adventures is a webcomic like thing that resembles the old Click adventure games.

I think someone might have just drawn this, not the actual artist.



Got to play Spirit of the Century with some friends over spring break. Got to GM it, so I didn't get to play much, but I got to throw a character together to make the backgrounds work while we waited on another player.

It was
The Narwhal - A canadian Batman type hero person, who had changed his name to John Jackson, or Jack Johnson or something like that. Best Bit: Aspect - Suspiciously Canadian. Didn't even need to compel it much. Sometimes an "...eh?" or some bits about Hockey would come up, and he would just clam up and hand over mouth. Alliteration Abounds in Abstract Alternate History.

Shannon Cannon - almost swarth swashbuckler with alien tech from space. A ray gun adventurer.

Can't Remember name now. hmmm. How about Pulp Fiction.

She was a literary bookworm from an educated family who studied and learned about the occult, science, and religion from books. Lots of knowlege, but nonpractical applications.

It was a pretty standard murder mystery, but looking back at it, I probably should have thrown more minions at them.


FlashBack Music

So there I was right, reading Wil Wheaton's blog, and he says that the episode of Criminal Minds he was in, is going to be rerun again on tv. So being impatient and able to summon Episodes of Tv Programs from the depts of the internet, I decided to check out the episode.

And Wil Wheaton was really great in the episode, being EXTREMELY good at the serial killer that would spring from the mind of a Geek (or at least thats how I looked at that). But the whole episode was so bad, it was tough to make it to the end of the episode where he appears. I haven't watched ANY Criminal Minds, but this episode had a lot of good points where important character development SHOULD have happened, they were written in, but only got paid lip service. There was one point where the mentor character was talking to one of the younger team members, about how Wilw dressed up as one of the "good guys" and he fell for it. Could have been a revealing moment for Both characters, but the Actors, Directors, Producers, and everyone else decided, "you know what, lets just keep going and leave this as is." Then they did it again, with a part that was supposed to be humourous and dark about how because they are in this job, they can't do things anymore like roadside motels. But its done so fast and without emotion, its hardly noticeable.

The writers were definately reading into these techniques that make the shows great, and decided to throw some of the stuff in there.



Spring Break... What to dooooo. what to doooo.


Been a While

This is for both Liam and D. Liam might enjoy the colorful imagery, and cheerful sounds and lyrics. D might like the They might be Giants-ness of the whole thing. They also have a Internet show at http://www.tallyhall.com/.

From the internet show: AND NOW FOR SOMETHING EXTREMELY SATISFYING. *Steamroller and a long stretch of industrial bubblewrap."

I recommend checking these guys out. They get my endorsement from being on my playlist all week.


Geek Christmas

I guess this is a fun happy time Christmas geek wish list.
1. Netflix
With NXE, watch movies anytime through your xbox on your tv. AWESOME. 9 bucks a month.
2. Ipod Touch/Iphone
These things are ridiculously powerful. Last year I was wowing about the Kindle. This can do all that that can (download books, newspapers, etc) and play Youtube, surf the internet, have lightsaber battles, play games (and not just regular games, like quake 3 levels of games) so much free things. (apps) There was a webcomic talking about the how you can call anyone, meet anyone and find the directions to anywhere in the world. You can look at anywhere in the world, anywhere in the world. And how you would have crashed you flying car anyway. The Iphone is the first landmard that the future is here.
3. Steam Games
Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead. Valve keeps coming up with these awesome games, but I can't bring myself to get them because of the Mac. Now that I have the desktop in optimal gaming position, i have been using it more. These games look amazing.
4. A Hacked Original Xbox HDD.
So I can place emulators and a media server on my old xbox. This is way to complicated to do myself. It involves unhooking your xbox HDD while the power is on, and when you hit that point its time to stop.
5. Rechargable Batteries Packs for 360 and Wii. The Wii batteries just keep dying, and the i still need 1 for the 360.
6. TV series.
One can never have enough TV series. If You own it, and think i should own it, theres a good chance i need to watch it. Unless your Cody. Then reverse that. Same thing for books.
7. Something that would help write more in this blog. Something not numerical post wise, just more verbose posts.

Things I gotmyself for Xmas.
Ipod touch !st Gen (With Macbook- Free)
Lego Star Wars Complete (10)
Warhammer Online.
$20 Xbox Card for Rockband songs
