The man shower was a big hit. Thanks to Nate I really enjoyed myself and I am grateful I had a chance to let loose. We celebrated until 1 in the morning or so when we all passed out. I remember sleeping on the floor in the hallway and then moving around. It was an odd night.
I pulled pix off my cell phone. I forget to do it so this goes a ways back. The last two shots are from the man shower. That giant glass is what Nate calls a double admiral. I like to call it a super admiral.
Otherwise I’ve been working quite heavily on my laptop making music and stuff. I ordered a 25 key controller. i will need a sound card because the built in one is total crap. The input/output latencies make using the laptop for anything music wise really hard.
I’ve revived my work on the RSSWriter feed editor program I was working on. Our old one doesn’t work in 64-bit Vista and mine does so it’s cool to get to show that off a little.
Crystal and I are ramping up for the new baby in June. I leave for Austin on the 27th so let’s keep our fingers crossed that she doesn’t come out early!
And some things I wanted to share:
- http://www.torproject.org/ — Running your torrent and browsing through proxies. A little slow for web browsing.
- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2275 — You need this to use Tor while browsing.
- http://www.vuze.com/ — I used only Azurues but I think Vuze is the wave of the future.
- http://www.seattlecheesefestival.com — Do I need to comment?
- http://www.myfavouriteillusion.co.uk/ — Awesome band I came across while reading up on Reaper.
It’s been suddenly super stressful at work as I work furiously to fix some vulnerabilities and trying to maintain what’s left of my shattered ego. It is a good lesson. I thought I had all my ducks in a row but I missed some details. I will post about it later when I get things under control.
Also, I bought a couple new instruments! I found a Lowry electric organ for $12.49 at Good Will in decent shape. It’s got bass pedals, a volume pedal, two keyboards (49 key I think) and switches to boot. It’s not a Hammond like I want but it’s plenty to mess with. I also got a 25 key controller that I can take with me on the ferry rides to and from work. It’s awesome to have 2 hours every day to be creative. If I don’t feel like it I can program or sleep but I like this recent ability to exert creative energy.
Some upcoming titles:
- Ferry Ride
- Zum Arbeit
- Card Swipe
- Wade Through Filth
It’s a concept album inspired by commutes to and from work.
