dream major

Okay guys, I know we’re all upset that this time, Steam screwed over the release of DDADDS, and who knows if the game will be released tonight because of it. But let’s appreciate the fact the devs learned from last time to keep us posted. Let’s appreciate that they’re doing their best to release this game they’re so ready to share with us.

And let’s appreciate the fact that, while the game to most folks hasn’t been unlocked, the review copies of the game HAVE been for reviewers. Which gives us such an amazing screenshot as this.

Guys. We can choose our wife to be our HUSBAND instead!!! I’m living!!! I’m so happy!!!

So, @thejoanglebook and I were invited to Cartoon Network headquarters and given a tour of all the whole Steven Universe floor, meeting the animators, storyboard artists, and even the show’s creator, Rebecca Sugar herself!!! It was a FLIPPING DREAM COME TRUE! Major thanks to Makenzie Atwood for this opportunity!! If you wanna listen to the SU podcast I got to guest appear on, you can listen here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-steven-universe-podcast/id1261418557?mt=2&i=1000392240453

I had this really funny dream last night

where I was zuko and it was literally just the scene where iroh asks if he wants tea and he just blows up “I DONT NEED ANY CALMING TEA! I NEED TO CAPTURE THE AVATAR.”
Except I was zuko and when iroh asked if I wanted tea zuko/I shouted “I DONT NEED ANY CALMING TEA! I NEED TO PASS ORGANIC CHEMISTRY!”

me talking about myself

me talking about how joesph christansen deserved a better ending as he and mary  do not deserve to be in such a loveless and toxic marriage

You know what kills me a little? Damien - sweet, adorable Damien who eats veggie burgers and makes bouquets with proper Victorian meanings - thought you wouldn’t like him anymore because he was ‘boring’.

Like, first of all, good organization and storage is Thing for me so yes plz drag me to a hardware store. Tennis shoes are completely appropriate work attire and are generally quite useful - stop stressing. And I actually kinda like Springsteen if I don’t have to hear him every day.

Secondly, do you guys know what the general responsibilities of a systems administrator are? They should be able to:

  • Support LANs, WANs, network segments, Internet, and intranet systems.
  • Maintain system efficiency.
  • Ensure design of system allows all components to work properly together.
  • Troubleshoot problems reported by users.
  • Make recommendations for future upgrades.
  • Maintain network and system security.
  • Analyze and isolate issues.
  • Monitor networks to ensure security and availability to specific users.
  • Evaluate and modify system’s performance.
  • Identify user needs.
  • Maintain integrity of the network, server deployment, and security.
  • Ensure network connectivity throughout a company’s LAN/WAN infrastructure is on par with technical considerations.
  • Design and deploy networks.
  • Perform network address assignment.
  • Assign routing protocols and routing table configuration.
  • Assign configuration of authentication and authorization of directory services.
  • Maintain network facilities in individual machines, such as drivers and settings of personal computers as well as printers.
  • Maintain network servers such as file servers, VPNgateways, intrusion detection systems.
  • Administer servers, desktop computers, printers, routers, switches, firewalls, phones, personal digital assistants, smartphones, software deployment, security updates and patches.

Also, it usually requires at least an associate’s degree in computer science or a related field (some jobs require a bachelor’s or a master’s degree) and probably a few certificates depending on the systems you’re working with.

TL;DR Goth Dad is v. smart and techy and I love him a lot.

Dream Sweet In Sea Major

Dream Sweet In Sea Major
It's Now & Never
A reverie endeavor
Awaits somnambulant directives
To take the helm

Believe me, darling
The stars were made for falling
Like melting obelisks
As tall as another realm

Un ensemble d'enfants
(A group of children)
La galaxie s'étend
(The galaxy extends)
Jardin de l'imagination
(Garden of imagination)

Combler la lacune
(Bridging the gap)
Roller passé la lune 
(skating past the moon)
Comme nous evoluons
(As we move)

It feels like flying
But maybe we're dying
A cosmic confluence of
Pyramids hologrammed

She knows you heard her
Staging music murder
In line before the show began
To be where I am
Get to know me - nerdy & artsy edition

Musical nightmare!!

The other night I had a nightmare that I was going to play a concerto with an orchestra and on the day on the concert I realized that I forgot to practice the fast part of the concerto…. So I started to look through the music wondering if I could sightread and it was impossible. I panicked like crazy and ran to the conductor but couldn’t think of an excuse, I couldn’t just say ‘I forgot to practice the difficult part of the concerto because I wanted to focus more on my tone in the slow part….’’  Anyway this post is longer that I thought it would so long story short the anxiety was unbearable and I was SO HAPPY to wake up!!!  

Anyone else had any scary musical dreams? Please share them with me!! 

Scraping an update together is a bit tough right now, since I’m mainly dealing with plotty and behind-the-scenes sort of stuff, but look! I made a a revamp to the “health” bar from the demo so that it looks a little more polished, hopefully, and also sits at least a little bit further out of the way. Also little balloon animation for when you lose (Or gain) points.

I also went and got a multiple parallax script running and man, I like it waaay better:

This script makes my dinner and does my taxes and tucks my children into bed at night. I love it. I love you, multiple parallax. Where have you been all my game-making life.

Sorry for the shitty gif quality but my computer’s not wanting to cooperate, so it’s a bit stuttery. Anyhow! I’m also finished with (most) of the revisions to the first part of chapter 2, so there’s some progress. I’ll try to keep everyone updated.
