Giving Up

Alright – I had higher hopes than this, but I’m apparently running low on steam. Sorry for the lame ass entry today. A bit tired, and unfocused.

Errand Day

Got a lot done today. Not terribly exciting, but hey – every day can’t be an August 9th. Amazingly, I woke up before 9 AM without the assistance of an alarm clock. Groceries, returned some optical monster cables that I wound up not being able to use, cleaned a bit, did some laundry. Sealed the windows in my living room…

Arturo Gatti v. Mickey Ward

A while back, Mr. Grumpy sent me a tape of the Gatti/Ward fight. The two boxers are scheduled for a rematch, and once again, I need to stress how amazing their first match was to watch. Me, I’m not a big boxing fan. Never really made it a point to watch, never really understood the attraction to the sport. But…

Experiments Updated

Sheesh. I need to get an actual site together, instead of doing all this piecemeal crap. Realized that during my teaching stint in Alabama, I uploaded a few of the sound experiments I did a long while back. A few fun things. Hopefully, I’ll get around to doing a few more of these things. Have a listen: What Pi sounds…

Twisted

Didn’t really get a chance to work with Ben’s designs until late in the day. Most likely, Monday’s gonna be a late one. Not because we’re up against a quick timeline, but mainly because I think I’m going to get into creating the site… and I’m not going to want to stop. I brought some files home with me, and…

Fuzzy From Beer, Tranquil From Song

Ah me. On my second beer, and the world feels fuzzy and warm. Mucking on the computer, and listening to a CD that Ben leant me. It’s Damien Jurado, and the album is "Ghost of David." I seem to have this habit of getting absolutely fixated on one particular song. Not an artist, not an album – just one song….

How I Did

Overall, I think I did well enough. At first, I was being overly careful and trying to figure out the best way to make three "variations" of the same image. I was thinking in terms of saving file size, and trying to reuse as many elements as possible – trying to make the thing fit for web. After a while,…

Guinea Pig!

A little before 6 PM, I went outside and found Mirah and Leema waiting by the front door. I had agreed to do an "interview" with them, as they were looking for people who had experience with Flash. I forget the actual name of the degree they’re pursuing (sorry!), but they’re both doctoral students researching how people learn. I think…
