Giddiness in a bottle One of the hallmarks of geekdom is that geeks have interest in some hobby, culture or academia, to a level that is well beyond that of society. It is that geeky fetishism that typically makes geeks of like interests bond together so strongly, often at the expense of alienation from those not in that sub-culture. ( Kinda long, but maybe about youCollapse )
Planet Smashers The ska band, The Planet Smashers, have an album out called "Mighty." I was listening to it on my iPod today and I guess somehow or another there is a secret track on it that doesn't even show when you rip it to a computer in Windows Media Player and the track is called "Girl in the Front Row." It's like 8 seconds long and all it is, is this lady screaming TROGDOR!!! Completely and utterly random I know, but I was wondering if anyone else has heard this.
Narnia: The Cheat OK, so this is my first real private attempt at non-linear digital video editing, like, with cuts and splices and crap. I am happy with it, and I have no intention of Lucas-ing with it in the future. I leave it to history.
Here is a little heads up with the file: It is a Quicktime MOV, encoded with H.264 encoding, so if you have Quicktime, you /should/ be able to play it. If not, try upgrading your QT.
The file is 15MB large, so please be patient if you are unfortunate enough to be on a narrow-band connection. And if you are, WTF is wrong with you??? Your three options: Cable, DSL, or move.
Please give me any feedback you have, pro + con. Thanks!
mar·zi·pan ( P ) Pronunciation Key (märz-pn, märts-pän)
"A confection made of ground almonds or almond paste, egg whites, and sugar, often molded into decorative shapes."
Did anyone else know that?
I am looking through the Guiness Book of World Records 2005(which I found abandoned in a resident's room last night during room checks), and I saw a listing for the Largest Marzipan Confection! At first Glance I saw Largest Marzipan Collection and thought it was to do with homestar (maybe someone has like 200 Marzi figuringes *shrugs*). So then I looked up a maripan and apparently it's some sort of cookie, or nut bar thing. interesting
