From my dad's sermon this morning:

"The pastor says, 'In conclusion,' and a little boy turns to his father and asks 'what does that mean?' His father says 'absolutely nothing'."

It's so true. :')

Yo Linnea, I'm happy you got your own album, and imma let you finish, but your brother and his buddies are the best gospel/techno/rapcore/pop group to come out of Alberta OF ALL TIME.

(We All Fall Down > Pockets Full Of Posies ... even though they are the same song...)

A recipe:

The Turkey/Stuffing Sandwich

2 slices of bread (any kind)
Some turkey (can substitute any meat)
Some sliced stuffing (no substitute)
Mayonnaise or mustard to taste

Combine all ingredients in a sandwich fashion, heat if desired. Serve alone or with pickles.

This is the traditional after-Christmas lunch in my family, and I must say, quite delicious. :3

Please accept this terrible (fragment of a) rendition of an old hit as a seasonal greeting of some sort.

Two things before I go to bed:

1) After nearly a year of playing, I have made it to the Outland on WoW. :D I feel rather squishy at the moment, like most enemies can polish me off if they get through my PW: Shield, but looking at even the rewards from the first couple of quests I've seen (Haven't finished one yet, will get to that tomorrow) my power will be swiftly rising. @_@;

2) My dad, brother, and one of our back-up singers/piano players are all away to the same conference, and the only people to lead worship at church tomorrow are me, and my mom. We practiced tonight which is weird because we never really have to practice, but since both of us are going to be out of our elements tomorrow...

I have a basic stage confidence since I've been up there for over a year now, but tomorrow I actually have things resting my hands. I'm sort of used to being able to play arpeggios and riffs in the background, and tomorrow I'm going to be playing my synth while simultaneously handling the projector, and attempting background vocals. Here's hoping it's not a complete disaster.

3) (I lied) I found this earlier today. I've figured SDL out at least a little. I'm not sure if I could make the jump to something 3d with my current understanding of programming. Though I went through some of the Tactics Heroes source code just the other day and understood it 1000x better than when I had no idea what anything meant in terms of programming. I feel like jumping immediately from games based on a Windows Console output to (crappy) 3d graphics is TOO BIG a jump for me to make. At least I have a much better understanding of how to make things look decent in 2d without too much effort. Though, I looked at a couple of MOGRE's tutorials, and it seemed to run along the same lines as what I'm already used to.

Okay, that's it.

I just got SdlDotNet working after quite a bit of frigging around. My games will no longer be restricted to ASCII graphics. They'll just be restricted to people who have the .NET Framework. :D

Okay, now that the standard period that should have been buyer's remorse is over with (a week), and it never was anything except my favorite thing, this is my new favorite thing. I got it used and they gave me a discount since it was missing its whammy bar, but a $1,000~ guitar for half the price is not bad at all... By the way, I love EMGs. Before, the piano used to drown me out if I was playing anywhere near the range it was being played at. Now it can only drown me out around the same exact key... (I realise there are plenty of ways around it with passive pickups, but they tend to involve experimentation that I haven't had a chance to do yet. Not in the middle of church. >_>)

The only unfortunate thing is that it's hard to make the guitar QUIET. It wants to roar. It wants me to make it sing. Sing loudly. Flailing it in the air as I shred the most epic amounts of metal riffs ever heard between here and the moon. I... I just can't do that yet. D: I feel like I am letting it down.

Also, I'm not going to be the owner of four (4) guitars for very long. I'm selling my other Jackson to a guy around here for less than I could get for it because he needs a new guitar. My brother doesn't like the idea but \(O_o)/

Despite my initial misgivings when seeing the trailer for the first time all those months ago, I am quite impressed with the Star Trek movie. I am impressed with just how well they managed to do the characterisations. @_@ Bones and Spock were especially dead center.

spoil cutCollapse )

I am looking forward to the next one. I just have no idea where they are going to go from here. What I'd like is a good old fashioned exploration "episode" given the time and TLC of movie. Star Trek has always been a great vehicle for issue exploration (probably one of the great overarching themes of any of the series is that they all take on issues), but that always tends to be secondary in the movies. (Exceptions I can think of are II (revenge), VI (unity), First Contact (revenge), and Insurrection (blind following of orders... but seriously, not very worth watching), and... that's it) They have a lot of heritage to draw on (racism, war, genetic manipulation, rights and freedoms, tolerance, ~*~COMMUNISM IN SPACE~*~), but they may just opt to try to continue a plot and fill it with awesome character writing. I wouldn't mind another...

Whatever it is, this might be enough to completely restart Star Trek. :Db

Come and listen to my story about a man named Ned
A poor northern lord, barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shootin' at some food
And there on the ground was a direwolf brood

So I woke up today in the mood to get a little C# programming done. Today has been highly educational in that I learned exactly what I have been doing wrong with object oriented programming. Well, actually, I'm pretty sure I'm still doing a lot of stuff wrong. Luckily, this is just a hobby. What lies behind the cut is the progress I made.

Himitsu WarningCollapse )

Those 10 hours didn't seem that long...

Come along children, now it's time to have a little music.

My brother and I turned my room into a makeshift recording studio, and this is what happened. Well, this and three other songs I deemed not fit to be put up. My brother is on the guitar, and I am on my synth. A combination that is likely to continue until my skills improve.
