This is pretty great

An interview with Matt Chapman, one of the The Brother Chaps behind Homestar Runner. It’s a pretty awesome look at a pretty awesome thing, (my most favorite internet thing through middle and high school), and very interesting look at the birth of internet animation, pre-youtube.

Goals

From the video description:

“SpaceX has completed qualification testing for the SuperDraco thruster, an engine that will power the Dragon spacecraft’s launch escape system and enable the vehicle to land propulsively on Earth or another planet with pinpoint accuracy.

The SuperDraco is an advanced version of the Draco engines currently used by SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft to maneuver in orbit and during re-entry. SuperDracos will be used on the crew version of the Dragon spacecraft as part of the vehicle’s launch escape system; they will also enable propulsive landing on land. Each SuperDraco produces 16,000 pounds of thrust and can be restarted multiple times if necessary. In addition, the engines have the ability to deep throttle, providing astronauts with precise control and enormous power.”

In other words, SpaceX is saying “Fuck you, parachutes, who needs you?” and “Mars–we’re coming for ya!”

I love it.

Hallelujah

Couldn’t help it. After all, for today’s performance we will have about a 100 member-chorus, the city symphony, and four soloists (flown in from around the country[!]).

Christ is risen!

I know, I know…

I’ve posted this before, but I’m on a big time Rush kick right now and it’s stuck in my head.

Snakes and Arrows is tied at second place with Clockwork Angels for “Favorite Rush Album.” First is Counterparts, which I think I’ve discussed before. Third is a three way tie between Vapor Trails (sound quality notwithstanding), 2112, and of course, Moving Pictures (I think every song on that album is on their “Greatest Hits” collection…).

Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris

My dad loved this album. We listened to it over and over back when it came out, but I haven’t since he died. Time to remedy that one…

Sad…

Not really, I think this is pretty funny.

Got tired of hacking and slashing, so instead moved to downloading and configuring files I don’t understand

Skyrim was getting a bit boring, and KSP is back to that point where I have pretty much unlocked all the parts and rumors of the next update are circulating, so I installed Fallout 3 again to shake things up.  Of course, when I install Fallout 3 I have to install as many mods as I can.  24 hours later I’m still trying to configure the mods so they play nice and I haven’t actually started a game yet.  You can definitely see the progress in game design from Fallout 3 to Skyrim when it comes to mods–I have never had any conflicts or problems with anything in Skyrim, but Fallout, being 3 years older, shows it’s age.  Oh well, I can feel myself getting close–it doesn’t immediately crash when I turn it on!
