Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!

I’m normally not that much a fan of the acoustic guitar.

Sure, it’s a cool instrument and sounds nice, but I favor the electric guitar over it since it has so much more possibilities for sounds, effects, and so on.
The guy in this video, though, has proven me mostly wrong. He plays the acoustic guitar and the drums, at the same time, using only an acoustic guitar. Yes, you read that right.

Fight Club

I know, I know, I’m really late to this party, but I feel like I need to write down my thoughts anyway.

I won’t be reviewing the movie or anything, but I’ll be talking about a small part of what the Fight Club did, regarding society sucking and media brainwashing people and all that.

I’ve probably blogged about this before, but today’s post comes in a bit of a different setting.

Just had a 30-minute phone call with a customer about the site we’re building for him, and how he can edit the content himself. We had arranged to call around seven PM, but he called over an hour later and took me by surprise. “Ugh.” Oh well, let’s do this then.

I discovered this recently, and it’s pretty damn cool.

So apparently Synchtube is this web application that allows you and the people in the room to simultaneously stream the exact same media. Use it to watch movies, for example! Great stuff. I got introduced to it by getting linked to The Odd Music Box.

How does it work? You join in, and listen to the songs that are being added to the playlist by the people in the room. If we’re running low on songs, we call a command that adds five random songs to the list from a database of songs that have been added before. And if you want to add your own, just register (takes less than a minute), and you’ll be ready to go!

The folks over there are really nice. I’ve been talking to them regularly for the past few days, and it’s a great place to hang out.
Not to mention all the new music you get to hear. Such a wide variety of genres, too. (Though rock, metal and electronic do prevail a little bit.) Lets you discover new artists in a pretty cool way.

So yeah, check the room out, and maybe I’ll see you on there sometime!

I came across yet another great webcomic guys, and I’ll be telling you all about it!

Paranatural is an ongoing webcomic about Max, a twelve-year-old boy who just moved from the big city into a relatively more rural area. He soon starts seeing weird things around him, and after a bit of hassle, joins one of the school’s clubs: the Activity Club. Better known as the Paranatural Activity Club to its members.

Only read the first chapter so far, but the story is intriguing, the art is really cool and fitting, and the concept is pretty good as well. You got to like the fantasy-ish stuff, sure, but it’s really good once you get into it. I pretty much read the first chapter in one go.

Action is portrayed well, scenery is worked out pretty well on average, and the style isn’t ugly or anything, so yeah, a really attractive comic in general. Go check it out!

I wrote this at 11, it’s almost 12 now and I forgot to hit publish!

UPDATE: Also it’s fucking hilarious. Great humor.
