    • Day 1241: I don't like the weather here

      13 hours ago

      topham DHYB

      I got 3 hours sleep last night, I woke up at 4am eventually, after getting to sleep at 1am. My apartment gets warm, and keeps it all in. So much so, that it was 27 degrees when I woke up. Ouch town. 


      I made it through the day, but it's been a wild day. Tonight feels a lot cooler. I always know that I suffer when it's hot here, and I am not used to it. 


      It's been a real long day, but I feel like I've accomplished a lot. I did a bunch of music, and played a whole load of games, and caught up on a whole bunch of content that I was behind on, and started watching the latest season of Doctor Who.


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1240: Proud

      1 day ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I was self-indulgent. There was no one in the lab, and I wanted to listen to my own music. 


      Not music that I like to listen to, the music that I've written and recorded. Why? Well, it's been almost a year since I put my album out, and I wanted to see how I felt about the music. 


      Turns out, I enjoy it, which I know must be shocking for everyone. Not only that, I'm super proud of myself for getting it done, I'm very satisfied with how it came out. 


      It made me think though, I really want to write some more music, and there are songs I've started but never finished, and I've certainly picked up some tips and tricks to make my playing better than it ever has been, and all these things assist with my musical creativity. 


      So, looking back at it, I don't know how I managed it on the surface, but I know I actually worked on it for close to three years, so wondering why already I'm not close to having another bunch of songs ready to go. I have my answer, but that's not satisfying. 


      I might have a bunch of time coming up where I'm going to have not much to do, so I might start a bunch of things, or write a bunch of riffs, and then try and expand on them in the future. 


      I'm super happy that I took today to listen to it because I don't know how I came up with some of it, and it blows my mind that it's something that I've achieved. It's rather diverse, there are some soft songs that are friendly to all ears, and there are some heavy things, which are for the more metal inclined people. It kind of makes the whole thing feel a little fragmented, but it's clearly all mine. 


      If you want to check it out, there are multiple ways, there is the youtube playlist, the soundcloud playlist, and then it's available on bandcamp!(for freeeeee)


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1239: 24 Hours

      2 days ago

      topham DHYB

      This time yesterday I was nervous, and there was a lot to come, of which I'd have no idea how it'd play out. 


      I went into the management review nervous, chilled out while in there, it got a little away from me at times, but overall it went well. There was definitely sections that were repeated, and it needs streamlining. I know what I need to do. 


      Then I came out, got on with stuff for an hour and headed home. I made some food, chatted to Rachael, and got some thoughts together for a podcast with Dom. Then we chatted and recorded, and it was a good time. The podcast can be found at this handy link!


      I then set about editing and uploading it, all while consuming content and trying to figure out what I wanted to do. 


      I figured out I'd like to play some Diablo and try and complete a GR70 and get that nailed on the head. So I jumped in, played two GR70s missing the time by two and three minutes, and just got some rewards from that and ran some regular nephalem rifts so I could re-roll pieces of equipment I use to make those small increments of strength. 


      Well, I tried one more, got to 50% of the enemies killed with 9mins 30 to go, had 3 instances where two golds stacked on top of one another, or a gold was mixed in with a blue pack. I get to the boss and I have 4 minutes to take it out. I paused the game. Walked away. It was an easy boss, that moves very little, and has a moderate amount of health, and no specific AoE moves. I unpause and move forward, planning my moves out carefully, staring at the status and effects bars, to ensure I'm doing maximum damage, and slowly but surely I see the health bar dropping. I took the boss down with 2 minutes 40 left and I was ecstatic. I got some alright rewards, and I completed yet another challenge in the game. 


      Then, it was pretty much time for sleep. So off I popped to sleepyland. And then I woke up. I found out that two people had had babies. I was very excited by this news, though both were very early. But everyone seemed happy and safe and it all seemed rather wondrous. 


      So I pottered into work, finding so many things to ignore as I went to an isolated desk to study, where I managed to finish covering all my course material. Another win on this insane 24 hours! 


      I then speak to my boss and come to an understanding and email him about a request we've been talking about for months. I get two emails in response. One confirming that I can have time off to go live with a certain someone in a certain America. And the other confirming that we're putting out an advert for another person in my lab so that we have cover for when I'm away. 


      All in all it's been a pretty great 24 hours. And I'm FU. 


      Awesome! 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1238: Halfway through the week

      3 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I hosted the most important meeting I've ever hosted. 


      It went okay and my boss said it was good. 


      Then I went home, where my apartment is 26 degrees C on the inside, and it's cooler outside. I'm melting because I'm not good with the heat. Good luck to me in the actual summer.


      I have spent the evening working on things. Yay! I need to relax. But I'm not good at that. 


      I want to spend a bunch of time working on a new fantasy world I'm developing for D&D, but it comes and goes in waves. Maybe if I were to spend 30 minutes a day focussing on it I'll soon get in the habit. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1237: turtle dragons are tough

      4 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I played D&D. It has thrown me off, because we usually play on Wednesdays. 


      What happened though? Well, we ran into a room, following a path that I determined was the right course, and encountered 4 people standing around, who immediately hit a gong on our arrival. We then slaughtered 3 of them as the fourth escaped, and a legion of warriors arrived. They did not seem best pleased with us, and came in aggressively. 


      We managed to rapidly dispose of the warriors, but as soon as the last one fell a turtle dragon arrived mounted by the enemy that escaped initially. It was not a kind dragon. Not in the slightest. 


      We all took massive damage and really wanted to run away. I decided to keep fighting, and using spells that really took no effect. We eventually got worn down, and it started picking us off, and we kept picking up those who had fallen. 


      We slowly were wearing it down, and then I realised I should be targeting my party, and not the dragon, and play a supporting role. I cast Haste on our barbarian, and the pet wolf managed to cause shenanigans that meant the dragon effectively fell over. 


      Once it was down our barbarian and monk capitalised, causing massive damage, it began to flee only to be met by an ice storm from our cleric, and it fell before us. 


      It was maybe one of the most intense combats the group has been in, I thought we could win, but the others were wavering, but we were resolute and stuck to a solitary vision. We pulled together in a final flurry, and eventually got ourselves sorted.

       

      Given that our group of 5 level 10 characters just took out a challenge rating 13 monster, with no rest between two follow on combats, it was quite the feat. 


      I had a good time playing tonight, and I know our campaign end draws ever nearer, but I've offered up a world of my creation as somewhere for us to travel into next, and I'm trying to entertain the idea that a world I've created could be a good place for adventure.


      Anyway, have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1236: I don't care

      5 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Recently I've been saying 'I don't care' a lot. A whole bunch. Many many times. 


      But, I care about stuff. I can't point out when I started saying it more, but I've noticed it's gotten to be quite frequent. 


      When do I say it though? 


      Well, I've been saying it to try and ensure that work gets done, I've said I don't care who does the work, just that it get's done, I don't care who has made a mistake, as long as it's acknowledged and fixed. I made a point of saying I don't care the reasons people need time off in my department as long as requests are filled out correctly. 


      I use it as not that I don't care about something, more so that I care about other outcomes, and people shouldn't worry about things being wrong, but they should focus on making sure they're correct because I do care about outputs, and things in the way can be seen as inconsequential. 


      Of course, even the things I say I don't care about I do care about, I care because then I can work on fixing any issues, solving any problems, but most likely at the time I'm being told something, the whole picture hasn't come to light, so it doesn't serve anyone well to dwell on it at that point in time. 


      Anyway, have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1235: short recap

      6 days ago

      topham DHYB

      The week ahead, well, I don't want to think about it to be honest. There's going to be a lot to do. 


      This weekend was good, but a bit all over the place. My gingerbread cookies were delicious. I might have eaten them all already. 


      Over the week I bought my plane tickets to the States for July. Woo! 


      I don't know what else to say today. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1234: Counting

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I am counting gingerbread. Well no, I'm baking gingerbread.


      Anyway, watching the most recent Burnie video blog, or the one that is most recently on youtube (I don't know if there is a difference) made me think. I count a lot of things. Daily journals, podcasts. snapchat and nearly everything I can do incrementally. I'm at the point where I am determined every day to write a journal, to keep everything ticking over, to have a creative idea. I organise myself with lists also, and it keeps me on track. 


      It was made a point to me at some point in the past that I do things incrementally, adding one each time, never skipping. It's methodical, it's how I like things, it's how my job works, it's how the stuff I do works, and I'm glad I've found myself sort of in a job where I have to follow things along. 


      I am disappointed that I gave up a few things not too long into them, I wrote a new riff every day, and recorded it and got it sorted for 60 something days in a row at the beginning of last year, made a change to it, and then dropped it. I don't necessarily miss it, but that just means I didn't get to the point where I was determined to get it completed every day. One of them randomly came up recently while I was listening to my whole library on random and it was more creative than a lot of things I've come up with recently, and in my mind creativity breeds creativity. 


      I have no points to make, other than it works for me, I am determined, and I feel there is a need to do certain things, but that's only come through initial discipline. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1233: It's the weekend!

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      It;s been another long week. Considering that I've been real inconsistent at work, it's been more draining, and I know there's a big week ahead. 


      This weekend I want to make gingerbread. YAY! 


      I'm sure I've got more to say, but tomorrow is that day. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1232: Luck

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      Somewhat related link to start the journal. Well. Not really. It's 6969 by NSP, and I completed a GR 69 in diablo today, something I've been trying for 4 days now. So yay! On to 70! 


      I spoke to Spencer, what is one day shy of 2 weeks ago before I went to Amsterdam and we talked about a bunch of things, and learned all about guitar effects, this time, we talked all about Chorus and touched on compression and sustains, as well as going a little bit back to delay. It was a great time, I played a bit of guitar on it, and hopefully, it comes across well, and the audio makes sense and demonstrates the points I'm trying to make. This speaky time was recorded as a podcast which can be found here!


      Luck. At most times, I have it. It's weird. I think most people who know me know this about me. If there's a spare seat somewhere, I'll find it, if there's a random drop in a game, it'll be favourable for me, and if there's something that seems coincidental, it's likely that my luck is playing a part in it. 


      There's a whole bunch of things that have happened this week that I've relied on being lucky for, and it's worked well for the most part. 


      Anyway, there's other things I wanted to write about, but the idea is unformed as of yet. It's something to do with me saying 'I don't care'.


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

      Okay. Random question. You're one of my British-type friends. Do you guys spell "mold" with a "u?" Like, "mould?" I can't tell if that's a typo I came across or a legit culture difference thing.

      Ive noticed on here your one of the more active guys from the UK? Been a fan for like 7 years, but only really now got involved in the community. Basically Im looking at going RTX next year, so make some friends now, so I have got people to go with next year.

        Ah cool! Where abouts in the UK are you?

        Have a look in the forums for the UK fans threads, I can't remember the exact names, I think one of them is 'Who's from the UK?' and there's 'English RT Fans Unite' as well, though the English fans thread has loads of in jokes and can be quite offensive. This weekend RvB Scotland are doing their thing and streaming a bunch of activities, and they've got a game day in Glasgow, while there is a RT: UK meet up in London. Next weekend is London MCM where there will be a bunch of fans going, and a whole load of shenanigans going on.

        The community is pretty wonderful, I can't remember all the people right now who I should point you in the direction of, there are some people on the community hunter channel, Hightower, iSayWhat and The_Hybrid that are all busy on there, making videos and are a right laugh. Then there's Boomer who runs RT: UK which is on in September this year, and that'll be a riot, and there's a summer meet up too! Loads of things going on around the place too.

        Anyway, there's more than I can cover in the short time I have on lunch, but if you have any questions let me know, and for anything else, just jump in and have fun =)

        Dude, Adam Lambert killed it. Great freaking rock show with some great tributes to Freddie thrown in along the way. They were in Dallas the week after last year's RTX. Their the reason I only spent 4 days in Austin instead of 8. I wasn't going to miss Queen when they were so close to my hometown (I live 2 hours drive from Dallas, 4 hours from Austin) in what may very well be their final tour. I took some of my spending money from my RTX fund and bought a ticket. I just had to.

        Yeah man, it's one of those things. I can say in the moment that it's probably Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I could easily have written Marmozets, Pvris, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Agalloch, Gorguts or Soilwork among many others. How were Queen? My parents saw them a few weeks ago with Adam Lambert and said it was an incredible show.

        for years and years its been Queen. I did get to see them in Dallas, TX last year so I'm happy about that. As far as the more Metal side of things, I don't really have a specific favorite. Just whichever one I'm in the mood for. Like you, I have some appreciation for most types of music.

        Hey man! I'm actually not going this year, it's out of my budget with the trip to RTX coming up, but my favourite band right now is probably Diablo Swing Orchestra. How about yours?

      Thank you for putting up with me and my stupidity! Also, thank you for laughing at me and pointing out my stupidity smiley8.gif
      No but seriously, thanks for being a friend and offering to be my travel buddy because I probably wouldn't be going to RTX if you hadn't! Also, thanks for letting me be a guest on your chats, even if I am a shitty guest because I don't do my research and try to kill you with my cat smiley1.gif

      Most of all; thanks for being you smiley12.gif

        There should be in a comma in there that makes it seem like I'm looking forward to both. Maybe I'll never return to the thread due to that error.

      Have an awesome evening, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      David,
      I am forever grateful to you for helping a brother out and I hope what I was able to do in return was at least sufficient. You are a genuinely good dude, and that vibe is hard to get online a lot of times. I do drop in your RT conversation videos from time to time and I think you are doing a great thing with those! Much respect, brotha!

      Thanks for always being a cornerstone of this community, it's hard to think of the RT site without thinking of you and your daily posts and videos. You never cease to make me smile when we do get to play gaimez and hang out and I feel privileged to have been able to meet you in person not so long ago. I've always enjoyed our conversations; never change and stay amazing ^_^
      Love, Shelby smiley12.gif

      Are you feeling warm? Are you feeling fuzzy? Well get ready to! (And then go see a doctor because those things aren't normal D:)

      TOP! TOP HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! The first time we ever played together, I said to someone later, "Top reminds me of candy," And you do! You're so jolly and happy and sweet - you're candy, Top! Metaphorically of course - or....or literally?? (...I've got to stop telling bad jokes!)

      But for reals - you're actually one of the nicest people I know and your kindness knows no limits. Everything you do, you attack with this positive attitude that, frankly, inspires me to do the same. :] Keep being wonderful, Top, and know that every time I see your post or see your name in Mumble, it puts a huge grin on my face! You're fantastic!

      Hey man thanks for kind words. I've always enjoyed talking to you and seeing the things you say and, at times, argue about in chat. You have great passion for the things you do and I wish I had that.

      Although I don't really say much during RT Radio, I like seeing everyone's interactions and contributing the small bits that I do. Thank you for being there, like everyone on the site, for listening to what I gotta say and when I need to vent.

      You are an exceptional person and, like you, can't wait to meet in person. Hope you are having a lovely day. smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley0.gif

      You have such a kind heart. I love hearing your thoughts on things and all about the cool things you do with the being a scientist thing and the music stuff and all of it. You are also an outstanding member of our Spread the Love admin staff. When you send me Christmas cards and such, they never fail to make me smile. I cannot express how damn excited I am to meet you at RTX this year, man.
      Spread the love with Warm Fuzzies of your own today!

    Hey!


    Unfortunately I am not the best at drawing, and arting in that fashion. There are plenty of people around here who are great at that kind of thing! People like Raf, OneBlueWolf, Lambency, Scheree, SailorGirl81, Myshu, Gaelfox, NaomiC and a few others are around here, I'd also recommend exploring the scary world of tumblr where there are quite a significant concentration of other community artists.


    Have an excellent day!
