Having Lived (from To The Moon)

Hello there you minions boi’s!

Today, the sequel to one of my favorite games “To The Moon” came out, so in celebration, I decided to record a piano cover of one of my favorite songs from it. I’ve already bought the next game, I hope it’s just as good!

Here’s the song:

The Author of Twerp Commented on the Review!

Hello there you green gateways. This post is basically just me telling you guys something cool that happened to me. If you read the title, you already know what that cool thing is. The author of my second favorite book commented on my book review of it!

I’m pretty sure it’s actually him because I checked the email address on the comment and it matched up to the one that Jamie found online for him.

I don’t have much else to say but I thought this was really cool, so I decided to post it.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Free Lunch #59 (mostly music edition)

Hello there you extremely difficult pieces of music. Are you able to guess what this Free Lunch will be about? That’s right, music! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get on either my phone or laptop and write for five minutes and try to form coherent thoughts.

Starting at 8:29.

All of the things coming up that i’m excited about involve music in some way or another. Tomorrow i’m writing a review of my music tastes based on my Spotify Top 100 of 2017. My band concert is next week, and I need to practice a ton. Finding Paradise comes out December 14th, the same day as my rendition of Having Lived from the previous game in the series. I’m going to try and play Megalovania in an ensemble with my friends in the spring. I’ve got music on the brain.

Aside from that, I recently read a post by Legendary randomness that got me into a new band, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I really like their album “Paper Maché Dream Balloon”, and aside from that a few songs from other albums. I’m not the biggest fan of most of their music, but they really struck a chord with me on some of it.

Outside of musical stuff, I also had my Math Practice End of Course today, and while I was able to do okay, I think I need to look up how to do some stuff online before the real one.

That’s all the time I have for today, thanks for reading all the way to the bottom of the post!

Apologies

Hello there you striped water bottles. I’m basically just here to give excuses on not posting a Free Lunch on Friday and the book review on Saturday.

The reason the Free Lunch didn’t go out was because I hit my data limit on my phone and didn’t have wi-fi on my laptop. I could have tried to post on the low speed data, but by the time I got that working it was too late for a Free Lunch.

I didn’t post the book review because I am yet to finish the book.

Thanks in advance for forgiving me,

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Free Lunch #58

Hello there you dissonant chords. Today is Tuesday, which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that means, I just get on either my laptop or phone and type for 5 minutes. This time i’m on my phone, so it’s going to be on the shorter side.

Starting at 9:35.

I don’t have much to talk about this time, other than a little music news. I wish I had more to talk about.

On Having Lived i’m definitely making some progress on polishing it up before December 14th. If you fidn’t know, the sequel game for To The Moon comes out on that day. The song itself is from the original game, and I decided to put out my cover on the second game’s debut. I’m definitely going to buy it the day it comes out, so maybe i’ll make a little mini-series for it? Probably.

I’ve only written a tiny paragraph and i’m already 3 minutes into the Free Lunch.

In band class, we’ve begun preparing for our Winter Concert, really trying our best to make all of our songs passable before we have to play them in front of an audience. I’m also working on composing a brand new piano song, which i’ll probably add to the other few songs I have unreleased and put it out as an EP. I hope you guys like Piano music.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post, I hope you have a nice day/night.

Undertale No Food #5

Hello there you shameless self-promos! It’s time for a very special post, another Undertale No Food. These only come out every couple months, take a lot of work to write, and are received relatively averagely, so I hope someone out there still likes these. If you want to actually understand the story and what’s happened up to this point, I encourage you to read these posts as well.

Undertale No Food #1

Undertale No Food #2

Undertale No Food #3

Undertale No Food #4

Today I’ll be trekking through most of Waterfall on my adventure to escape the Underground!

Starting off where I last saved, I talk to Sans and he invites me to go to Grillby’s. I oblige and find myself in a zoomed-in conversation with him.

I agree and trek back to Waterfall. I walked through multiple rooms and came across a hidden camera in a waterfall (not the area, actual waterfalls).

I keep walking and find myself in a room with lots of space to hide in. It also looks pretty cool.

Halfway through, I stop though because, above me, Papyrus is having a one-sided conversation with someone in lots of armor.

Once both of them have left, I continue through the bushes and am confronted by Monster Kid, an avid fan of Undyne (the armored figure). I forgot to take a screenshot of this, sorry.

In the next room, there’s a puzzle with lilypads that’s pretty interesting.

On my way out, I encounter Aaron!

I dodge most of his attacks and spare him.

In the next room, I find myself with a more interesting application of the lilypad puzzle.

After making my way across the bridge, I get a call from Papyrus about a tutu I picked up earlier.

After that odd phone call, I walk into the next room and read all of this lore.

I walk into the next room, with my shadow dripping onto the floor.

All of a sudden, FWOOSH!

Undyne is back, and this time I don’t have a bush to hide in!

So I walk as fast as the game lets me…

Sustaining minimum damage, I make it into a room of weird bushes for me to hide in. But Undyne follows me anyways!

Luckily she picks up Monster Kid (pictured above) instead of me, and I live.

Both I and Monster Kid walk out of the bushes.

As I enter the next room, Monster Kid doesn’t follow me.

*a few moments later*

Continuing through the caverns, I get another call from Papyrus.

He hung up, and I decided I wouldn’t change my clothes. In the next room, I found one more lore sign.

In the next room, I encounter a friendly octopus who doesn’t have enough water to live comfortably.

They talk for a little bit about how all of their friends moved to an aquarium in a big city because the water where they all used to live is draining.

In the next room, I find, surprise, more lore signs.

Continuing on my way, I find a little statue that’s getting rained on and give it an umbrella.

It starts to hum out a tune, and on a piano in the other room, I play the song and a door opens in the wall.

I try to take the artifact, but my inventory is suddenly mysteriously filled with dogs.

I try to “use” one of the dogs, but it absorbs the artifact and flies away.

I keep walking on the main path and take this pretty cool shot.

A few seconds of walking more, and I stumble into Monster Kid again.

He starts to follow me.

A few seconds of silence pass.

We keep walking and find a really nice view of the castle in the next room.

We soon encounter a ledge that’s too high for either of us to make it on our own, so he volunteers to let me use his shoulders.

I keep going like he said and…

SUDDENLY, MORE LORE.

In the next room, I used the savepoint and called it a day.

Thor Ragnarok Review-SPOILER FREE

hehe riley its still today 11:59 the post is out on time thank you very much happy thanksgiving eve.

 

Hey everyone! Remember me? I wouldn’t blame you since my last post was *audible gasp* 40 days ago?! That’s 57,600 minutes! Or 3,456,000 seconds. Or-

I’ll stop here because this kind of stuff was a major contributor to me not posting. I guess when I think of something that one thing consumes my brain and I don’t do anything else whether that’s playing watching YouTube, reading, music, and even blog posting and podcasting. I guess school has been what consumed my focus recently but I will try to amend. When I have said this kind of thing in the past I have created this huge schedule that I follow for like 2 weeks then just stop again. So I hope you enjoy this post because it may be a while until the next one.

Now onto the review.

 

Ah, Thor. His movies never really spoke to me and I probably wouldn’t watch them if they didn’t have MCU lore intermingled. But with Thor Ragnarok all this has changed.

I want to make this review spoiler free so I’ll just say this much to start: it’s good. It has a totally different tone (more comedy to be precise) and when I saw this in the trailers I was a bit hesitant. Still REALLY excited for the movie because of the killer theme (Immigrant Song) and my favorite Hulk, but still worried. I have a worry with every MCU movie that they can’t keep up with the stellar previous movies in the universe (yes I still call the Thor movies stellar). I do the same thing with Star Wars, video games, books, and sports. I like picking a team and getting attached to it so I always fear the worst when a new installment comes out. But Thor Ragnarok met and exceeded my expectations.

As I said this movie was funny, but it did a good job balancing funny with plot and depth. Loki as a character has always been interesting to me (a rank-S villain in Avengers who is a sorta-ally now) and this really shows a lot about him. We also get to meet Bruce Banner again after the events of Age of Ultron and that is all fascinating because a lot of time has passed for us that hasn’t for him. Also Mark Ruffalo is the best avenger and I will fight you on that point.

But this movie isn’t without it’s faults. I like a lot of the character decisions but a lot of character interactions I think should have been rethought (if you watched the movie you may know what I mean here). The new characters add a very team like quality to this movie, but I feel like in an already crowded MCU there may not be good space for them. They were like Thor’s own Avengers (there may or may not be a joke about that in the movie).

All in all the characters are good, the plot is funny and well written, and the MCUs future looks way more interesting.

This movie gets 9/10 JPs (jamie points).

Thanks for reading!

Free Lunch #56 (Save The Internet Edition)

Hello there you weeping guitars. Today is a Tuesday, which means it’s time for Free Lunch. More importantly though, today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced his plan to repeal some of the regulations set in place when Obama was in office that help keep an open Internet.

Starting at 8:46.

Over the last few weeks, you’ve probably seen a big buzz around Net Neutrality, and for a good reason. Net Neutrality is what keeps big companies from charging you extra for going on websites that they oppose. To help understand that a little bit better, think of your electric company. You get a bill based on how much electricity you use, not what you use the electricity on. They won’t charge you more for playing an electric guitar than for operating a microwave. However, if FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan goes through, these regulations that stop your Internet Service Provider (ISP) from charging you more based on what websites you visit will disappear.

If you don’t understand how this is a big deal, take into consideration that your ISPs can block websites that are run by companies that they don’t like.

Not only can they block you from visiting certain websites, if these regulations are lifted, your ISP will also be able to charge you more money for visiting certain websites, or considerably slow down these websites that they go against.

This is very bad.

Luckily you can help by visiting this website and calling your local congress representative and telling them that you oppose the FCC Chairman’s plan and support an open and equal internet.

If you are a blogger, I recommend you write a post about this to spread the word to as many people as you can to try and save the internet.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post. Call your state’s congress representative.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
