  • I Bought A New Toy: Part 2

    Previously...


    So my new guitar pedal came in today! Probably one of the coolest pedal packages I've gotten so far. I opened it up to start playing with it and look at the goodies it came with (EarthQuaker Devices product catalog, guitar pick, EQD trading cards).


    When I got to the pedal itself I decided to pop the back plate off and throw a battery in it, but when I opened it there wasn't a spot to put a battery. Apparently the pedal only takes power from a 9v power supply (aka it has to be plugged in) and I don't have any pedal power supplies yet, so I can't play with it just yet. I might as well bite the bullet and buy one for all my pedals, but there goes another $200.

    I looked at the piece this morning and decided I didn't like the colors, so I took them off. 


    I had just finished my morning coffee when my sister called (again) and said, "Let's do the cherry trees today!"


    I have two wild cherry trees in front of my house that had gotten huge, 3 to 4 times the size they were when I moved here. 


    It took all day and two trips to the dump but both trees have been cut back to almost nothing-what a difference!  I'll post pictures tomorrow. 


    Needless to say removing the color this morning was it for creativity today.

    "Euouae" is the longest word in the English language which is made up entirely of vowels.


    It is defined as: A type of cadence in medieval music.


    I cannot tell you how long it is taking me to figure out how you say this damn word...

  • Charlottesville, Nazis and The Tolerant Left

    1 day ago

    wamirul

    I was originally gonna write this essay on @ninjacake 's post in the comments but I figured I've probably hit my quota of post-jacking for the year. I've spent the past few days reflecting on the events of Charlottesville and thought I'd put them up here because if there's one thing I've learned from John Oliver, is that Americans love a foreigner with opinions on white people. 


    Here are the two arguments, one from either side, I've seen prevalent: 


    Left: Nazis are wrong, they have no place in modern society. White supremacy is not welcome. 

    Right: This is my freedom of speech, stop impeding on it. We have a right to protest whatever we want. 


    I can't believe I have to explain this, but guess what: Nazis _are_ wrong. There's a reason why we make so many world war 2 games, and that's because the statement "Nazis are evil" should be the least polarizing statement this close to a century's anniversary of World War 2. Nazism and one of its core tenets- the supremacy of white people, is a fundamentally wrong opinion. 


    So on to freedom of speech- the alt-right or whatever fancy rebranding the ghost of Hitler channeling Pepe the frog has called them now had a right to be there under their First Amendment. That just means the government couldn't arrest them for simply being there. Every other person in that town, every counter-protester, had just as much of a right to be there, protesting your "protest". That's how free speech works. You know what's not protected under free speech? Murder. Or, to contextualize, driving your car into a crowd of protesters. 


    Actually, while we're on that topic, why would Nazis care about free speech? It literally goes against the core of Nazism. If you want racial purity, you can't have free speech. You can't one second go "Some of us are better than others" and the next say "We should all have a turn to say what we want". I'm just saying, you guys have to be the worst nazis I've ever seen, and that's despite every nazi in popular media having the gun accuracy of a dead cantaloupe trying to shoot down an F-22.


    This is the part of this essay where I address the feint of "They're not really nazis, people throw that word around so much it doesn't mean anything anymore" to which I say, pish. I saw Nazi symbols, Nazi slogans and Nazi ideology at that rally. If it quacks like a duck and whines about the unfair persecution of hitler, it might have been in Charlottesville last weekend. 


    Next- White Oppression. Hang it up there with chem trails, kenyobama and Nazism being "Just an opinion" in the shelf of things that simply don't exist. I'm not saying white people have no problems- problems are inherent to the human condition. Oppression and problems are simply not the same thing. Getting flak on tumblr for being white is not the same as having the system of the country you live in working against you on every level. White men don't get shot on the street then have the media speculating about what they did to deserve it while the shooter gets a taxpayer-funded vacation. 


    Also- this was all over a fucking statue. Allegedly. Technically, wouldn't supporting the confederacy technically be the least american thing to do on a count of, yknow, the whole secession thing? 


    Final note- "debating Nazis". This has been a hotly contested topic as of late. Should Nazis be allowed a fair debate? Why should a civilised society bar a person from a chance to make their case? To which, I refer you to the fourth line of this essay: "Nazism is wrong" should be the least polarizing statement of the modern era. The validity of Nazism was never up for debate. You don't hear a person say "I think people who look different from me should be killed" and say "Well let's just hear him out". You call the cops. 


    P.S- I feel the need to point out, with all this heat on nazism etc, that the remainder of sane society can collectively agree to put nazi "trolling" on hold. Now that people actually believe the Nazis might be the good guys, please find a new universally hated european force to pretend to sympathize with for comedy. Like the Spanish Inquisition. Or the people who hate Abba.

    mattyou Kingdom Hearts freak

    School is starting up again for me in two weeks. The commute to and from school together will be 3 hours. So I'm gonna have that time to play some portable games I'm just not sure which ones besides the upcoming Mario+Rabbits , Mario Odyssey and Danganronpa V3.

    71PhOO-nOJL.jpg


    I thought since I now have give or take 15 hours to play in the week maybe you guys got some good recommendations for me. I would like the recommendations to be mainly for Switch and PS Vita games but if you got a 3ds/ds recommendations I'll bust out the old 3ds for it. (virtual console and psp/ps1 classics are also welcome).


    As for what I like to play. I like pretty much all genres. But the ones I really love are RPG's/JRPG's , Rhythm games and Action/Adventure games.


    So if you got any recommendations for games I can play on Switch/PS Vita/3DS please let me know. Cause god knows I am about to have a bunch of time to play em(please help).

    Well my summer is officially over and I am back at college. 


    It is sad when the highlight of your summer was 1 game of corn hole that went on for an hour and a half. (For those who don't know what corn hole is the average game length is 15ish minutes, if that)


    So you can say I've had a pretty interesting summer....

    last Wednesday night I left for D.C. to go to Otakon over the weekend. Thursday was basically spent checking out sights, since the people I went with and I already had our badges mailed to us. the actual con itself flew by faster than expected, but was still really fun overall. the official Gilgamesh cosplayer for the Aniplex booth even managed to pull me my first Sigfried in Fate/Grand Order, as well as a duplicate of the Projection craft essence, so that's now one copy away from limit break. on top of that, I bought a bunch of cool stuff, and also managed to win at least $120 worth of stuff for free, at least $100 of it coming from the Sentai Filmworks booth where I got a giant Himouto! Umaru-chan bag with two shirts, a button set, a keychain, a poster set (all of which were from random other Sentai Filmworks properties), and the complete TV series of Sakura Wars on DVD. my only regret being that I didn't check the shirts' sizes before the con ended, because one was too big and I'd have liked to ask if I could exchange it.


    if I can ever get off my lazy butt, I'll make a new image folder for Otakon pics I took.


    EDIT: OH! almost forgot. for those of you playing F/GO like @CaButler and @Raltrios when the Jeanne rate up ends on the 17th, they're starting a new event for the week of the 17th to the 24th: Does Moon Goddess Dream of Dumplings, with a new 5* craft essence and a new servant for the event.
