Raven Rock

So in my middle school or early high school years a science teacher would take my class and several other classes to what has become one of my favorite parks in the state, Raven Rock. If you’re ever in the Lillington or Campbell University area, make some time to hike a few of the park’s trails to visit the eroded ledges along the Cape Fear river or the relaxing rapids. The shot below is from a recent visit.

Recycled Light

I made one of those recycled light bulb art hangy things tonight. Was a fun project. Hope it doesn’t crash and dump its special red liquid (Gatorade) onto my carpet.

Meetings

When I’m “not paying attention”, I am. In meetings my brain, stuck in infinite multitasking mode, can’t dedicate itself just to the auditory sense. Doodles must be drawn. This day must have been a binary one mixed with the usual jaggy skulls.

Doodle? Use that camera on your phone and share.

I’m a Visual Guy

I’m such a visual person I had to create a graphic for myself so that I could understand how my visual thought processing works. I think this has to do with right brain personalities. As usual, Wikipedia has some good info here.

Geeks will be…

Hanging with my cousin.

Since he’d just picked up the Space Quest Collection on the cheap we got the wise idea to tag team some adventure gaming like the ole days.

Thing is, since the old games used DOSBOX the colors were not rendering properly on his Windows 7 machines, so we were left to play SQ on his microscopic Dell netbook running XP.

What is DOSBOX? It makes old things work. Click to learn more.

I’m close to my cousin, but neither of us could get comfortable with the idea of the two of us snuggled in around the 11″ netbook screen trying to figure out what the next move should be on our space adventure. Sooo, I got the wise idea to use his big screen TV that was more or less saying, “Hey look at me!! I’m over here! You can use me!”. We had to get a little creative with the connectivity, but in the end…victory.

The speaker you see in the image, it is something special. When I say special, I mean it in almost every way imaginable. This link has the details if you’re even remotely interested (it is ok not to be, it is not thaaat special).

So with everything connected, loaded, and configured, we managed to get our space pod off the mother ship and get the adventure rolling. Maybe hooking all this up was part of the adventure.

    Don’t look at me like I am a monster
    Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
    Stare like a junkie into the TV
    Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
    Watches him die,
    Hands to the sky cryin “why, oh why?”

    Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all need it too – don’t lie.

    Why can’t we just admit it?
    Why can’t we just admit it?
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
    Neither the brave nor bold
    Nor brightest of stories told
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’

    I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all feel the same so why can’t we just admit it?
