amp stacks


came to campus to grade even though it’s a holiday, ran into my mentee briefly, mentee reappeared 10 mins later with a latte!! #blessed. feat. grading stack & poster i got at the getty alchemy exhibit earlier this month.


In Puyo Puyo Tetris, dropsets are used in specific modes, including Mini Puyo and Fusion (PuyoTetMix). An interesting detail is that the Tetris characters recycle dropsets from past characters, those that were playable in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary but only cameo in Puyo Puyo Tetris.

  • Onion Pixy → O
  • Dongurigaeru → Ai
  • Rider → Ess
  • Yu & Rei → Jay & Elle
  • Ocean Prince → Zed
  • Ms. Accord → Ex

But interestingly, Tee is an exception. By process of elimination his dropset should of been based on Carbuncle, who similar to the others was demoted from his playable status, but instead Tee sports a unique dropset not shared with any other character.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Tetris characters also use the same AI as their respective characters when they play Puyo Puyo. For example, since Jay & Elle are based on Yu & Rei, they will stack Puyo on both the first and sixth columns when a match starts

I miss working in theatre this summer

I miss cable salads. I miss 15 hour days. I miss running up and down from the booth four hundred times. I miss taping cables. I miss hearing sound through a speaker that wasn’t working. I miss crawling behind a stack of amps to patch one cable. I miss ladders. I miss doing vaguely dangerous and sketchy things to get a job done. I miss focusing speakers. I miss every aspect of work.

I just really miss it. It feels like part of me is missing.
