Most wondrous discoveries can be made browsing idly through the pages of SourceForge.
Go here, PLEASE! It is the most intriguing thing. Then go to their website and look around.
That is all.

Music Trackers

So I haven't posted in quite a while. Oh well. What can I say, I've been busy, but I haven't forgotten about this little blog.

I want to share this really neat little thing called a tracker. (A lot of things are apparently called that too, though.) The tracker I am talking about is one that sequences MIDI notes in tracks, to make for a pretty sweet music-making machine. It is the easiest way I have found of making  music.

The tracker that introduced me to trackers is MadTracker 2. It is free to download, so you don't have any excuse for not trying it out. Go here. You will not regret it probably.

Internet Story

Here is the creepiest video I have ever seen, discovered via the "Gray's Favorites #1" playlist by C.G.P. Gray. I highly recommend his channel, for he commonly uploads videos that are most intriguing. I recommend watching the whole thing to get the point.

Thinking About Writing a Book

I am thinking about writing a book. I just have so many things I have to figure out to make that happen. I'd like to design the whole thing -- page size and layout and all that, but I don't really want to be in charge of distribution. I also need to, uh, kind of figure out WHAT I want to write about.... I have no idea about how I get published (or if I want to publish myself) or how to set up copyright things. If someone out there wants to give a few pointers, I'd appreciate it.

Awesome Sites Part Two: Miscellaneous

There are tons of awesome sites out there, and some sites are hard to put under a single category. I think I'll save game sites for later. Here's some miscellaneous, with music tacked on at the end.

1. Sourceforge
Here you can find open source software of all sorts -- games, file transfer systems, audio, picture and video editors, editors, etc. ... all for FREE.

2. YouTube
Well. You've heard of YouTube. But maybe not some of the most awesome parts of it. Go to my channel to see who I follow, I only follow awesome.

It's dot com!!! Just kidding. A cool site chock full of funny flash animations and a few games. Go there and click the "First time here?" button.

4. Hulu
I like to watch a little A-Team, a little Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, a little Jackie Chan Adventures. You can get lost here for days.

5. Wolfram | Alpha
A "computational knowledge engine." This video shows what it can do better than I can. It can do a whole dang lot.

6.Project Gutenberg
Free books no longer protected by copyright. Pretty simple, and yet pretty cool.

7. ZamZar
A file conversion tool based online. Get videos from your computer or off YouTube, pictures, music, etc. and it will convert them to a specified file format for download.

8. Amazon
My very favorite place to shop online. Probably favorite place to shop period. Free shipping in most my cases, and tax free.

9. Picnik
Photo editing online. Can do a few things Photoshop can't as easily, and free, and convenient.

10. Music sites
Ah, isn't the web the best place for music?

  1. Pandora -- internet radio stations you make yourself, my favorite place to discover new music.
  2. Third Rock -- "America's Space Station," an internet radio station powered by NASA.
  3. Grooveshark -- best place, I think, online to find a song that you already know about. Can find some things most others can't.
  4. Bandcamp -- here, if you go about looking the right way, you can find excellent tunes for free to download.
  5. Spotify -- okay, not a website exactly, but it comes from one and can't (for free anyways) work well without the internet. I probably use it more than all the rest combined, with a playlist with c. 2 days of awesome songs.

Newgrounds Uploads 1

Here is what I started out on Newgrounds with. All work is 100% mine.

8-bit DnD

Here's a cool animation a friend showed me.

I kind of want to try out DnD sometime.
Based upon 8-Bit Theater, a great webcomic I should have mentioned before.
Read it here.
