Stupid elections...

There were tons of people already posting they voted on some blasphemous hours... Like 9 am on Sunday!

Ugh.

Also, I have a headache.

I hate people who claim to be too busy to reply to texts.

Really? Too busy to type for about 30 seconds? All day?

As if it wasn't a fact that 99% of humanity takes dumps with their cellphone on them, usually playing with it the entire time.

I, too, prefer old-school film to digital. While the instant gratification of digital is nice, I really wanna get me a classic SLR. My photo class is gonna be adding development next year!

I'm listening to Boingo (when Oingo Boingo was trying to be dark and edgy by just going by Boingo), Modest Mouse and Gorillaz while I clean.

Edit: Now I've added Meat Puppets and the B+!#+#*# Surfers to the mix.

Gods. I wish you'd posted this a few weeks ago. I just dumped all my old film SLR stuff on eBay a few weeks ago: A Nikon 6006, 50mm lens, Tamron 28-200 lens, Tamron 200-400 lens, etc.

Had I but known, I could've sent you a care package...

Speaking of music, I have to say, after last week's Battle Beast/Sonata Arctica/Kamelot near-snoozefest (Battle Beast was awesome), last night's Hammerfall/Sabaton combo was f******g amazing!

I really don't care for Hammerfall much, and the fact that they all look like strung-out heroin junkies doesn't help one whit. But they put so much energy into their performance, and were so engaging, that I couldn't help getting caught up in the frenzy.

And then Sabaton. Just. Sabaton.

If you've never seen them live, do eet.

My favorite quote of the night (horrifically paraphrased because I'm not a stenographer): "Yeah, this tank on stage? We're Swedish! We just got it from IKEA and put it together right before the show! Go on out to your local IKEA and ask for the Sabaton tank. They'll know what you mean..."

Minor grammatical flub/forgotten word:

Presume it's supposed to be "their own, not".

I have yet to find salted peanuts, almonds, or cashews with the mega-doses of salt that I want, so yesterday I did a little googling and made my own. They came out a bit burnt, which they're all the better for, and they take as much salt as I want.

So huzzah for cooking experiments!

Wow. That would be nice. It's okay. I appreciate the thought, at least. Can't be sad about something I didn't know I missed.

I'm in an art therapy photography class that lets us use some nice digital SLRs and have free prints and other fringe benefits, so I'm not suffering for lack of supplies or anything.

I'm the one guy in class who constantly switches every setting to manual. I want a telephoto lens so bad, though. I like extreme zooms. Everything looks amazing with major close ups. Even boring stuff! The inside of a tree's knothole at extreme zoom was one of my favorites when blown up for a slideshow.

I wonder if I invest in one if I could make a return taking photos of cheating spouses as a private eye...

The General made some Japanese cheesecake today, which is more like a cheesecake souffle.

This is, quite literally, the first I've heard of any Japanese dish incorporating cheese, let alone any kind of dairy altogether.

We got leftover cheesecake from somewhere that nobody wanted to eat. I wanted to eat it, but I have serious movement problems.

...So I made a cheesecake shake. I regret nothing.

I wasn't questioning the authenticity; the idea that an entire nation would eschew dairy altogether seemed weird. Yeah, they don't have great cattle land, but I mean, goats can be raised everywhere. I was more being like "oh, that is cool - that's gotta be a rare one, 'cause I never see it!"

Cap, I got to play my first Starfinder game last Saturday. It isn't half bad. I do have one beef with the society games, however. For all of my effort into building a decent Pilot, all I ever got to do is shoot my laser pistol at stuff. For that, I'm mildly disappointed. Boogers! Boogers, I say!

I suspect starship combat is the first thing cut for time in society play, I'm hopeful timing improves with repetition.


Well this is a fascinating thing.

Spoilers for Driver San Francisco (a game), and presents an interesting take on how to have a 2nd Person game.


Me: Man, my time sure does seem to be running out, lately.

YouTube: Sure, have two half-hour ads on epoxy and re-flooring things in a row.

I am a HUGE fan of the original Driver for PS1. I absolutely loved that game.

I have yet to find a game that gets starship combat right. I love some of the ideas in Starfinder(everyone has something to do) that came out of earlier attempts at crew vs crew combat in earlier adventure paths, but to me it would have to be something like a weird take on aiding another on a massive scale along with the weird bonus-only based way Infinite Space, one of my all time favorite games and a very unique game, works to hit all of the right places for me.

Someone had to do it, didn't they?

(1) Happy Anniversary, V!

(2) High-level Pathfinder really does get silly. On Sunday in Shiro's game we fought a full-on CR 22 Grim Reaper while we were only 18th level. Dimension Door, Haste, and Aura of Justice had my rogue needing only a 5 to hit. It got one action (not even a round) and then took over 400 points of damage, and I still had one more hit's worth of damage to roll after it dropped.

Eeew.

(3) Have I mentioned how much I'm loving my Linux system now that Microsoft (3 Windows 10 crashes on Friday and an audio failure) and Apple (no more 32-bit support on MacOS) are sucking? We finished up Divinity 2 last night (spoiler below) and started Torchfire II, which runs natively on Linux. And that right there is... obscene. It runs... faaaaaaaast.

Divinity 2 Ending:
And wow. We did all the different endings of Divinity 2 and they all sucked. Your basic choices are, "You sacrifice the world to the God King and he enslaves all the races," or, "Humanity sucks so much that all your efforts go for naught."
Nice giving such a fricking downer of an ending, Divinity. But it's not that surprising because most of the game is just an exercise in, "In order to get ahead you have to be an a******."
Ayn Rand could have written it.

(4) It's amazing how much more attractive your friends find you during midterms. Impus Major has 3 midterms this week. I've been helping him study. Every single day since Thursday his friends have been coming out of the woodwork to try to get him to participate in major social events: An 8-hour film fest on Sunday. An all-night Zombie Tag game on Sunday night. And on. And on. And on. It's really obscene. And next week after he's done with his midterms? I'm sure all his friends will vanish again. Because it was like that when I was in school as well: Your friends sense when you're busy and swarm you at the most critical, terrible moments.

(5) It's dropped into the high 40s at night and mid-to-high 60s during the day, so it's getting cool-ish in the house in the mornings (63°F this morning). I'm still hoping to make it to November 1 before having to turn on the heat, but it's going to get close...

GothBard just summarized the world's resistance to Linux beautifully:

"I don't want an operating system where if *you* die in a car crash, *I* can no longer use my computer."

And yeah, that about sums it up. Even the "user-friendly" Ubuntu only installs on a single drive if you use the default settings, and the other drives are invisible, so you have to know how to mount/unmount drives. Virtually every program you install needs some kind of command-line fix (Steam and its DNS issues, for example). If you don't understand sudo apt-get install you're rarely going to get anything working. Etc., etc., etc.

Sad, but true.

Oh, and for those of you who Facebook, if you go to Sabaton's Facebook page and watch their little video "Thank You" to San Francisco, you can see GothBard and a tiny bit of Impus Major up in the front row (actually they were in the second row), rowing along in preparation for Swedish Pagans...
