I donated two of my basses to the music department of the high school I work at, and apparently the students heads exploded.  I also sold one of my basses to my cousin (who seems to enjoy it).  And I have two left in my arsenal to jam on when I feel like. 

Now to save up for a road bicycle and some studio equipment for my future in voiceovers.

I currently have to reduce our disk usage at work to merge two network drives.
While cleaning the other drive, I found archives of people's computers.

Since those people aren't at the company anymore, I kind of have to see if there was any reason for those backups.
That does mean I end up looking at some of the personal stuff they had on their computers.

Here's the top three of things I landed on:
#1 - Porn in someone's Outlook
#2 - 6 full length movies (in French nonetheless)
#3 - A really creepy picture of an ex coworker

At least I deleted everything of that kind. Their legacy is safe now.

Now to save up for a road bicycle and some studio equipment for my future in voiceovers.


My newest purchase (the frame) http://allcitycycles.com/images/bikes/ThunderdomeMain.jpg

thunderdome! aluminum track frame.  But I'm modifying mine with an 8 speed internal hub (it shifts on the inside of the hub, so I don't have to mess with a derailleur) http://www.sussex.com.tw/images/hub%20inside-out.jpg  and added a downtube shifter http://biketouringnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/IMG_1386.jpg.  I got 25mm rims (as opposed to the 28's on my old hybrid setup and the 23's on most higher end road bikes) so I can still use it as a commuter if I want.


The hub is on back order, so it'll be a few weeks before I can test it out, but when it's done I'll essentially have a track bike that's specifically fitted for long treks on the road.

So, uh...

Apparently my stepdad's father went crazy and tried to kill his wife before killing himself. This was my afternoon today.

Yeah...

Though let this be a lesson. Plenty of people could have seen this coming but chose not to. I've met the man multiple times and it was super apparent he was losing his marbles. I don't care how close you are to your elders, dementia is not something to be taken lightly. If you see the signs, get them help.

Sweet rig!  The three bikes I'm looking to try out are a Specialized Secteur, Felt Z85, and Bianchi Impulso.  We'll see which one becomes my weapon for club and event rides.  I'm still planning to keep my hybrid as my "daily driver" and trainer.  I shed 70+ pounds on that hybrid, so I have history with that ol' girl.

A) good gravy man, that Bianchi is gorgeous... (I've still never ridden anything with a sloping top-tube though.)
DROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL..... http://images.evanscycles.com/product_image/image/ba9/cd4/93c/103552/bianchi-impulso-veloce-compact-2012-road-bike-59cm-soiled-.jpg

B) I feel you with the sentimentality towards a particular bike.  I'm going to hold on to my hybrid until the welds fall apart.  That thing has taken me to hell and back.

Bianchis are dead sexy as far as bicycles go.  Even this simple Impulso looks like an Italian supermodel wearing basic jeans and a T-shirt.  http://www.bianchiusa.com/bikes/road/coast-to-coast/impulso-105-compact/ (That's definitely more my style, looks great but not overdone.) 

This video of a guy doing insane stuff on a Bianchi Impulso is pretty sick: https://vimeo.com/66151697

Something about Italian bicycles... Bianchi, Pinarello, Colnago, Wilier-Triestina, De Rosa... they got style.

Russian ASMR video about a terrifying wizard book.

Anyway need to go spend like six hours downloading a Windows 7 iso because company's OEM OS image repository is made out of 56k modems and chickens.

Also dinner tonight was frozen yogurt and soy yogurt.

Also work got kind of weird lately. Looks like coworkers I was being annoyed with weren't actually doing anything wrong, and some other guy was trying to play us against eachother? idk man, ididk man.

It's filthy here :T

Good advice. Sadly it's often easier said than done. My grandma tried to kill herself several times, usually by hanging. Failed every time. My parents tried to get her help, but she kept convincing everyone else she was fine. Didn't take much, because people hardly worry about old people. You just stick 'em in a home. Now her mind is so far gone, she doesn't recognise her own children anymore. She fills her days with watching television, doesn't want to do anything else. We're sure she still wants to die, but she's terrible it. When she caught that flu and a few months ago, right after recovering from some lung infection, she should have died. Everyone was prepared to let her pass away. But, it just didn't work out that way. Now we joke she's forgotten how to die, because we're terrible people.

I also think people are scared to do interventions because the backlash is hard to deal with.  It's like when you try to get a substance addict to go to rehab- they fight you every step of the way, kicking and screaming tooth and nail.  Let's face it, most of us are not tough enough to deal with that fallout.  And that is a shame all around.

My cousin did this a few years ago...except he did kill his wife and then himself, leaving their daughter without parents. It is a weird and rough experience. Especially if you are close to them. I felt a lot of anger towards him for doing that, more than I felt grief for it happening.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Battleroads has been a subject of several conversations I've had with people this week, particularly early 20-somethings who are into retro gaming.  This begs the question, why the hell is Battletoads not available on Nintendo's eShop or PSN or something?  That is one gaming franchise that needs to be necro-resurrected. 

When I played Battletoads, I never got past the hoverbike level.
