mobile update

This is a test from my new smartphone, woot. The picture is from a few weeks ago.


February 7, 2005

So two weeks ago we enetered a song in songfight. We didn't win, nor did I think our song 
was the best one, the thing that annoyed me is that the one that won I thought sucked, and the
one that should have won (the one by Eight Legged Oedipus ), didn't. Which I guess is the
way things go, so here's my attempt at helping:

Go to songfight.org's competition for "The Truth About Aspartame", and vote for the one you 
like best. Or vote for the one by "Consume", either way. Only vote once, to be fair, but vote.
Point being, if other people are going to get their friends to vote for them, so will I. Not that 
winning gets you anywhere...

new phone, via rules

After seeing someone else with one, I went and got a Motorola MPx220. Although it runs
a version Windows (which takes upwards of 45 seconds to boot), I'm pretty impressed. It
has a goregous screen, amazing speech recognition, etc. 

Also, someone from VIA got in touch with me, offering lots of support and resources
for Jesusonic development. Met a couple of nice guys from them, and it looks like they
may accelerate me getting the hardware to market. <3. Whoever told them to check out
Jesusonic, thanks.. :) 

Finally, for some reason I tend to feel like I'm more on top of playing the drums
when I've been awake for a long time (i.e. upwards of 12 hours). I'll listen to the
recording and see if it's true, or if it just SOUNDS better at the time...

another ditty

Made this ditty a couple days ago, liked it so much I decided to adjust the 
mix a little bit, so here it is now. Somewhat sad feeling, but in a good way.
Or something. Who am I kidding?

i really like guitars

It's really amazing how good a decent acoustic guitar can sound.. 
Made this little ditty yesterday, diggin it. Also trying out various
free VSTi synthesizers, some are pretty rad.

Also, I just found SongFight for the first time, so hot (I know, it's been 
around for a while, and I'm slow to find it.. For the record, I'm not posting 
links to things here saying "look at me I found it first" it's more that I'm
just logging what I've been looking at, etc. This is mostly in response to a 
comment in my last entry)

some amusing links

Let's see. Brad Sucks is a very awesome "band". "They" (ok I'll quit it, "he") 
have (err, has) some very good music, and a completely admirable way of going about 
distributing it. Seriously, awesome. Some of the remixes I find especially 
delicious, too.. Now if only I got so I could make stuff that sounded decent 

In a related story, this page is spot on, too. OK not spot on, but mostly.. 
The Joshua Tree will always have a special place in my mind, but the comments 
on that page are just great. See the bit about pacifism.

Finally, it seems my friend Cody is selling USB lights. He likes to 
spell "very" as "vary", too, though now I see he fixed it. Haha.

work and play

Added the ability to edit Jesusonic text files that are read by effects
from within the Jesusonic editor, which has gotten very nice, so you can
edit drum sequences on the fly etc. Fixed a few bugs in the process, 
and made the preprocessor a bit more flexible too. Good stuff, should
release 0.98 soon. The other thing I added was a new effect, which is
sort of a fake analog sequencer that plays the tune you want it to. 
The first draft of this one can only play one sound at a time, but 
I'm sure people will update it, or just use multiple synths at the
same time. I'm also going to make a version that uses a sample instead
of a generated wav, so you can have it play (in a very synthetic sounding
fashion) a guitar or piano...

Watched the new season of 24 premiere last night. Pretty ridiculous, 
but hey while I'm laughing at it, I'm still enjoying it. Gonna watch
the next 2 hours tonight, too.

if you find a spare 12 minutes...

...then you can try listening to this song (I know I already linked to it 
effectively, but I feel it deserves another mention). It's a bit long and 
takes a while to get started up, but I'm addicted to it.  Some of the words 
just blow me away. 

Anyway. We had a nice drink+poker+bowling night last night. Need to do that

oh yes, and here's a little something I've been working on too.

the new album (formerly some more rough cuts)

To go with yesterday's mp3 (these may also have offensive aspects of them,
including the quality):
the as of yet untitled album
(the order is obviously not final, nor are the mixes)

Her name is Charlie, and she gets real comfortable out on the porch.

ok so not going to kill the .plan yet

I'm keeping this accessible via finger as well, because well, I can.

In other news, our feral cat who disappeared a week ago we found today locked in the
basement of our neighbor's house. nobody was around, and the door was locked with a master
lock, so I tried to pick it. I'm so out of practice it took me a good solid 5 minutes,
but at the end a very skinny weak kitty came out. we're just glad kitty is back.

following the leads of others

I am finally moving to a full on blog format. It took just about everybody else, most recently 
john carmack, to break me down. oh well. I'll have to put something in my .plan referencing 
here. gotta figure out a way to convert all of the old entries, too. or not.

I'm using Brennan's hlscript. word. thanks Brennan.

OK so the real reason I switched is so that I could be one of ABC's people of the year. jk.

my last .plan update ever! (from now on there will be more formatting, I guess)

Merry X-mas or whatnot. BTW, as a user pointed out to me, and I had already
experienced, the Line6 guitarport works great with the Jesusonic. You can get
them for $100, and their default software is pretty decent, but it nicely
installs ASIO drivers which work well with Jesusonic, and has a good hi-z 
input for the guitar. Anyway, got a pod xt live for Christmas, it oughta
work with that too, I'd think...

jesusonic launch, partay!

Woot, releasing the Jesusonic Software preview to the world,
as my form of Christmas (or whatever) present. It badly needs
a readme.txt, which I neglected, so I'll be updating it soon with
more information and whatnot, but for now, for people to get playing
with it, here it is: http://www.jesusonic.com/soft.php.
