    During World War II, British sailor John Capes made a daring escape from his sunken submarine, the Perseus, from depths of 171 feet (52 metres) and survived with the help of a Davis Submerged Escape Apparatus (an early type of oxygen rebreather), being the only one to do so out of the crew of 61.


    He must have had some balls, big, buoyant balls...

    The Disney World franchise is the second-largest purchaser of explosives in the United States of America, the first of course being the U.S. Department of Defense.

    It is however the number one purchaser of fireworks.

    I just so happened to find myself a neat little thing today. It's called "Scare for a Cure" and they need volunteers for make-up. And upon digging I found many artists in the area learned their skills there. So why not right? Bloody up some people, get experience, and help out charity what's not to love?

    I feel like I didn't get any sleep last night, and today is filled with classes and work later. I'm going to try and squeeze a nap in after this next class, but I'm not super optimistic about that happening. 


    On the upside I've been getting quite a bit of side work done today. I got my test episodes of the DeviantRED Podcast up on iTunes and made a new logo for it.

    I like it, but I'm still a little unsure. How do you guys feel about it?

    Going through and cleaning out the house in preparation to move and came across some personal history.  My first "real" sword, made by me (with guidance from my dad) at the young age of... Well I don't rightly recall and that in itself might be telling enough.  The blade is a brace from a float plane, the guard a washer, and the handle is a deer antler.

    Just one of those moments that stands out to me and I felt like sharing.
    Take care.

    Story Time!


    About 4 weeks ago as I was leaving class, a girl in my class approached me. Her pretense was about some presentation she had to do for our class. I had never spoken to this girl or noticed her before, but evidently she sits behind me. We talked for 40 minutes about ourselves in which I found out she doesn't like video games, anime, camping, hiking, or drinking, so... not much in common. She ended up getting around to saying that she thought I was cool, and she would like to hang out sometime over spring break. I said sure because I was flattered and didn't want to be rude to this girl who had the courage to approach me in the first place.


    As I was busy painting my room the very next day, she starts texting me a lot asking what I was doing. I responded by saying I was busy painting the trim in my room. She responded by saying she was lying in bed looking at memes and continuing to text me (this was at 2 in the afternoon). So she's lazy, and I keep myself busy. Again not much in common. She asked if I could hang out in an hour, so I said sure (putting my painting project on hold).


    We went to the park, and she bought a piece of pie, grabbed and extra fork (without asking me), and started to periodically offer me bites of pie. Not really in my comfort zone for a first date hang out. Then we walked and talked for about 3 hours, mostly about her, and any time I tried to relate something to myself she managed to put the focus back on her and her friends. After we had talked for a while she pulled out a book of "songs" she wrote in high school, and handed them to me. I read a couple which had to do with first hand experiences of bulimia, anorexia, and cutting. I asked her what kind of music she had in mind for them, and she said she didn't have anything planned for them, just lyrics. Every last word of every line rhymed with the last word of the line before, so not great, but I was being polite by changing the subject. She then proceeded to read every song in the book to me (about 9 total), all dealing with the same high school bull shit (she's 21). I showed her some of my music, and she seemed disinterested, again shifting the focus back to her music. The "hang out" kind of fizzled out from there.


    I determined from that, that we were not compatible, and decided I would not go on any future dates hang outs with her.


    One week later she asked me to hang out again. I was completely disinterested, but I didn't want to have to keep making up excuses not to hang out with her, and I wanted a clean break. I didn't want to hurt her by ghosting, so I decided to hurt her with honesty. I told her I was not interested in anything further. I knew full well that "hanging out" is a cop-out way of asking someone on a date without it being considered a date. It makes someone seem like a real big jerk if they refuse to hang out with you as opposed to refusing to date you.


    I left the conversation there, not wanting to have anything to do with her anymore.


    Today she approached me thinking that I didn't get her last message about me misreading things. I told her I didn't misread anything, I just didn't think we were compatible. We don't share any common interests, and we're in different phases of life. I have limited time, taking 6 hours of classes and working 36 hours, so I have to be careful with how I spend it, and who I spend it with. She asked if it mattered that we don't have common interests. Umm... yes. It matters. Then she asked if we were just not going to talk or hang out anymore. I said I guess.


    So now, hopefully, that is done.


    I just don't understand how you would want to be friends with someone with no previous history of communication or anything. She just thought I "looked cool" which again, is flattering, but that is not what friendships are based on.


    I learned at 17 what a lot of people seem to still not understand: Not everyone is going to like you, and that's OK. They don't have to, and that is not your problem, it's theirs.


    Sorry for the long post, but this has been on my mind for a little while, and I feel like today it was finally concluded.


    "Heartless Bastard Mother Fucker" is a song by Frank Turner.

    So, basically for work purposes, I've been spending quite a bit of time in FCPX, lately. I've been using it to edit the recordings of our office's Lecture Series Livestreams that we host. Our latest lecture with Dr. Katherine Young is now up if anyone would like to check it out. I've also been editing a BTS video of the tech set-up for these lectures, in addition to editing the BTS of the making of the music for the AH Rap Throwdown. That one is finished, and ready to submit to the LPCommunity channel. I just need to check on a couple of things, first. I'm not what most would call "good" at this type of thing. But, I'm much better than I was.


    Not only that, but a mixing project has been handed to me in which the drums were not recorded the best. And, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I was originally the one who recorded them before handing off the project to another person to finish the rest of the tracking. Clearly the environment in which I recorded them mislead me with what I thought I was hearing. So, in order to correct this, I've learned how to convert audio into hitpoints, which can then be converted into a MIDI file, and THEN used to trigger supplemental drum sounds. All within Nuendo 6.5. In my opinion, it may have saved these mixes from a state of being completely underwhelming. Bullet dodged...


    But, I'm pretty pleased with everything that I've been pushing myself to learn, these past few weeks. Hoping I can keep it up.

  • New Show Idea

    1 day ago

    matteflowers FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Cappy

    Hey y'all, so I've been working on this new idea for a youtube series on my channel. It wouldn't be about gaming really. More of a pseudo-educational series about business, accounting, corporate and personal finance. At least that's the starting idea, I'd love to expand it into more topics, but I'm starting with a passion of mine and something I know decently.


    The working name for it is "the Growth Show" (vague plant/flowers pun intended), but if you have other thoughts on that let me know. Other than that, I wanted to know what questions or topics you would be interested in? Currently I'm planning on high-level chats about things like: business health metrics, taxes, basics of retirement accounts (like 401ks and IRAs), credit cards, loans, interest, as well as how to make basic financial statements and the differences between traditional business (accrual) accounting and the usual cash-basis most people use, as well as interesting business models (I personally love to look at how different companies and individuals make money in different ways).


    Those are just some ideas, but I would love to hear what's on your minds. And even if it isn't businessy finance sort of stuff, maybe there's a place in the show for episodes around those things as well.
