Fuck You Guns

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 14, 2012, 2:33 PM


Article --> jezebel.com/5968540/fuck-you-g…

I agree wholeheartedly with this particular article.

Not only is it time to talk about gun control, it is long, long past due, to talk about gun control.

'Guns don't kill people; people kill people' - yeah sure, but guns make it obscenely easy for people that kill people, to kill a whole fucking lot of people, in a disgustingly short amount of time and with no effort at all.


An ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.  Elementary school.

People are sick.

Redundant

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 18, 2012, 7:34 PM


My position became redundant, apparently.  Me and a few others at the studio got laid off today.  Kind of in shock still, I think.  It's difficult to really process.  I've worked there since 2005, so it's been a very long run.  The studio head teared up when he told me that I'd gotten cut.  The directive came from above their heads to reduce the headcount.  When we hired a new lead animator last year, we actually got one who knew his way around rigging and scripting, and he liked making his own rigs, so my role as studio's rigger got reduced then.  I'd mostly been helping out the environment team, but we've got a fair number of environment guys now, so it's not all that huge a shock.

Well, it is a shock.  None of us saw this coming.  Not really.  But well - whatever.  So yeah.  There it is.

My husband is still there and still very much in high demand.

In all honesty, I've been pretty unhappy with work for a while now.  There's the whole 'holycrapmoney' thing - especially since we just bought the new house.  I'm just trying not to think about that right now.  I got a good severance package at least.

sigh

This is what my town is known for

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 16, 2012, 1:52 PM


Beer.

www.bendbulletin.com/apps/pbcs…

The city I live in is located in Central Oregon.  It's a very outdoorsy-type place.  Enthusiasts of outdoorsy things come here for vacations.  You can hike, go cave diving, go skiiing on Mt. Bachelor or one of three or four other ski resorts within a half hour drive, intertube down the descutes river, climb smith rock, visit a volcanic caldera, or Tumalo Falls, yadda yadda yadda.  If you're not into all that crap, then there's not honestly a lot else to do here...

but get drunk, apparently.  Bend's biggest industry is in the small-scale beer brewery industry.

I still find it funny that next to no one has any idea that there's a 1st Party Sony development studio in town.  People ask where I work and I say Sony and they just blink and look at me funny, trying to work out what that might mean.

Got the house

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 5, 2012, 9:11 PM


So, a very very long time ago, I posted a journal or two about how my husband and I were attempting to get a new house.  That was back in May.

The house, in question, is a Shortsale (meaning that the people who bought it needed to sell it, but the market has gone to such shit since they built it in 2007 that there is no way they could sell it for as much as they still owe on it - so the banks have to take the hit.  It's not as bad as taking a total foreclosure on your credit, but its still a ding, and shortsales are a PAIN IN THE ASS to deal with).

Anyway - since it was a shortsale, and wore even, a shortsale on a house with two mortgages, owned by two different banks, we've had one hell of a long, tedious, exhausting ride, trying to get the damn thing.

But we got it!
We closed on Tuesday and have been moving in, ever since.  
I am sore, and exhausted, and i hate moving - lol... but I love the house ^_^;

We only just got our DSL hooked up today, so this is the first time I've been able to get my computer onto the nets since Monday.  I've had to rely entirely on my phone for checking email and such.  Such a backlog in my DA message box.  O_o

The Hills are on Fire

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 22, 2012, 4:55 PM


I live in Central Oregon.  I'm about a 30 minute drive (at 50mph because Oregon has ridiculous speed limits) from Sisters Oregon, which is basically on fire right now.  Or at least, the forest surrounding Sisters is on fire.  I have heard that certain sections of the town were evacuated at some point, but they've gotten that part of the burn contained by now, so the threat to the town is lower.

Anyway, we, in Bend Oregon, are directly down-wind from the blaze, and have been covered in a thick layer of smoke for about two weeks now.  Air quality was deemed hazardous in Sisters, and deemed very poor here.

You know that smell when you sit around a camp fire?  Or do a wood-burning barbecue, or even just a firepit?  That burning-pine smell?  It's nice in small quantities.  Not so nice when it lasts for two solid weeks and makes the air so thick with smoke that you can't see what's more than ten blocks away from any given point.  

I haven't seen the mountains on the horizon for two weeks, and today, I couldn't even see the Pilot Butte from my house, and I live pretty damn close to the Pilot Butte (Pilot Butte is an extinct volcano inside Bend's city limits).  You can pretty much see it from anywhere in town because... it was a volcano.  It's a "small" one, but it's still a volcano.

So yeah.  I wish we'd get some rain, or at least a really strong, consistent wind, to blow this damn smoke away.  From what I heard, after they got the portion of the fire heading towards populated areas, contained, they stopped efforts to fight the rest of it, and are just going to let it burn itself out until it rains.  Who knows how long that'll take - this region is called the "High Desert" for a reason - we don't get a lot of rain here.  

Fuck, wow - Okay, so I'm typing this on my laptop out in my backyard because my kids are playing in their sandbox right now.  I'm getting little flakes of ash on my screen right now, as I type.  

ASH.  On My Screen.

We aren't even close to the actual fire, but still we get to suffer from the shitty air quality.

Fox News even calls Paul Ryan's speech 'cow dung'

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 30, 2012, 10:08 AM


--> www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/0… <--


lol - You know they reached a new level when even Fox News is calling the Republican VP's Convention speech the Gold winner of 'Most blatant lies in a single political speech', and refers to it as a pile of Cow Dung.

She rips Paul Ryan a new one, and it's actually quite an interesting read.

So yeah - I'm stunned.  I wonder if this poor sod will keep her job after her daring departure from the FoxNews party line.
On the site, the article is apparently buried deep within the bowels of foxnews.com but it's on the top of the trending list for the site - so - Go Internets!  haha.

RNC Disenfranchises their own delegates

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 28, 2012, 9:14 PM


I have a reasonably diverse gathering of friends from work.  We hang out and we go to lunches together.  Several of them are registered Republicans, however both of them hesitate to admit this in mixed company, and when they do, they call themselves '80's Republicans' because they're ashamed of what their own party has become.


So the Republican National Convention is going on in Florida and it's all over reddit and the various news agencies.  The blatent disenfranchising of the Ron Paul delegates, specifically, gets it for me.  That and their official platform.
Namely the fact that the first item on the GOP platform is "Preserve and protect traditional marriage", while the first item on the Democrat platform is "Economy".

But it's the fact that the people in control of the republican party now are even cheating their own people, and not just cheating everyone else.

www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/…

Edit - This vid explains what's gone down better than I did -


So basically, during the primary elections, every person who stays in the running gets delegates that represent the percentage of the state that voted for each candidate.  Despite Romney being the declared candidate for the Republican party, Ron Paul actually won 6 states, and never dropped out of the running.

He still has over 170 delegates, and under NORMAL circumstances, the RNC would allow delegates from each state come up and state which candidate had won there, and how many delegates went to the different candidates.

This year at the very start of the RNC, a new Rule was proposed that only delegates for Romney would get any floor time, and no delegates for any other candidates would even get to speak.  They also voted for some reason I'm not yet clear on, to ignore Maine's delegates all together.  This rule was to be voted by vocal majority - basically the Yay's and the Nay's called out from the crowd.

The No's were audibly louder than the Yay's - the clip is trending on Youtube right now if you're interested in watching it.  Despite the loud 'no's' in the crowd, the new rule was passed and all Ron Paul Delegates got the shaft.

The reason that Maine was ignored was because Maine made it so that Paul got 6 states, and by the RNC's own rules, if a candidate gets 6 states, they have to be given 15 minutes to speak on the RNC stage, and they denied him that by denying his wins.

An excerpt from that article that I found rather poignant -

Yelena Vorobyov, a 30-year-old Paul delegate from Apple Valley, Minnesota, was eager to vent. Barely taking a breath, she said: "This is just evidence of the manipulation of the Republican Party. They're not even allowing us to bring signs in, but they brought in their own [pro-Romney] signs. We couldn't nominate Ron Paul. The 'no' for not passing the rules was louder than the 'aye' and they ruled in favor of the rules. They're cheating. The Republican National Committee is not transparent and does not have integrity. They stole votes. They stole delegates. They refused to send busses for our delegates. It's a totalitarian process. This is not democracy. It's a really sad day for us. I've worked for Republican candidates since I was 16. We believed the Republican Party had more integrity. Boy, did they prove us wrong."



Interesting story to go along with this came out of Nevada's delegates.
The chosen delegate from Nevada was supposed to come up and declare the 5 delegates that Romney got in that state.  Instead he took stage and declared Nevada for Ron Paul, and listed off the other 5 states he won, since they were all denied floor time.

Neil Armstrong

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 27, 2012, 11:00 AM


Why haven't I seen a flood of journals on how shit it is that this great man has passed on?
For that matter, I don't think I even saw much of a peep about Curiosity landing on Mars.

I see journals about internet drama, and stupid shit all the time, but noteworthy, meaningful events take place, and I see nothing.

Personally I find that rather sad.


I watched the stream of Curiosity landing on Mars live, the night it happened.  We have a MacMini hooked up to our 64-inch TV in the living room, so it was streaming right onto the big screen in our living room, an hour before the actual landing.

I watched all the pre-show stuff where they showed the simulations of how the thing was supposed to land with a giant jet rocket sky-crane thing, and I remember thinking 'oh holy shit, are they for real?  There is no way this is going to work!'  And 'wait, the rover is HOW big?  It's the size of an SUV?  Really?'

I remember sitting there as it got really close to the 7 minutes of terror and hoping WISHING that it would really work.

I remember watching the control room full of NASA nerds, sitting on the edge of their seats, and each welling of cheers and celebration with each tiny indication that things were going as planned, and then the EXPLOSION of excitement and hugs and jumping, when it was finally confirmed that it had landed and pictures were coming through.

And I remember thinking 'I bet this is sort of what people felt back when they got to watch the Moon landing, back in 1969.'  That real-time, excitement, hope, and awe.

And now the man that took that first step onto the moon is dead.

The first man on the moon will never get to meet the first man on Mars.

I wonder if I will even live to see the day we finally put someone on Mars.

Great Blog Entry from George R.R. Martin

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 15, 2012, 9:53 AM


George R.R. Martin, the Author of Song of Fire and Ice (the books behind the Game of Thrones TV show) has a blog, and he recently posted a bit of a rant on current political affairs, and specifically the efforts to disenfranchise american voters through supposed 'anti-voter-fraud' laws, despite the fact that there's no evidence that voter fraud is even happening.

You can really tell this man is an author because he uses words wonderfully.  hah.  There were a few choice lines in it that I found especially awesome.

--
George R.R. Martin -

The people behind these efforts at disenfranchising large groups of voters (the young, the old, the black, the brown) are not Republicans, since clearly they have scant regard for our republic or its values. They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants.

And don't tell me they are libertarians either. No true libertarians would ever support a culture where citizens must "show their papers" to vote or travel. That's a hallmark of a police state, not a free country.

--

Clad in the skins of dead elephants - how great a line is that?

MLP

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 4, 2012, 7:30 PM


Being someone who frequents this site, it's obviously impossible for me not to be aware of the new My Little Pony show (and I use the descriptor 'new' lightly, as I know it's been around a while now - but it's 'new' as far as I'm concerned, since I grew up in the 80's watching the original show).  But being 'aware' of the show, is obviously not the same as actually watching it.  I don't have cable or satellite, or any traditional mode of television at all, so it's not even been possible for me to just randomly stumble across the show.

I recently noticed, however, that the show is on Netflix.  My daughter has been cycling through a number of shows lately, and one of them, I find horribly horribly annoying, so one day we boot up Netflix and I see that she's about to go to this uber annoying show again and I see MLP on the recommended list and I talk her into giving it a try instead.  I figure, with as many people who are obsessed with the show, at the very lease, it has to be better than the pos she was going to watch instead.  heh


So yeah - it's cool.  Better than a lot of other cartoons my kids watch - at the very least, its definitely animated well.  Anyway, we've gone through the whole first seasons so far, and yesterday she was watching the show again and it got to the episode where Discord shows up.  Now, obviously, I've seen the character before.  There's fanart all over this site, and it's impossible to NOT see it.

However, I had never HEARD him before.

It took all of 30 seconds of him speaking for the first time, for me to end up on IMDB to confirm my suspicions.  And holy crap - he's Q.  lol.  Like - literally, that character is molded specifically after Q from Star Trek.  He even snaps his fingers and disappears in a flash of white light to reappear somewhere else a second later.

He's freakin' Q!  

okay, okay.  I'm a dork.  But Star Trek:TNG was one of my great loves during the 90's, so I had myself a little geek-spasm when I realized I was right.
Being the thorough type that I am, I ended up on the MLP wiki where it mentioned in some interview with Lauren Faust that she said that, yes, the character was inspired by Q, and apparently they originally thought that they'd just try to get someone who sounded like John De Lancie, but ended up thrilled when they realized that they could actually get him to do the voice.  

So yeah - that's really all I had to say on that.  lol.

Oh man, right now my daughter is watching this show from Nick called Tuff Puppy and I just want to rip my ears off.  I'm not impressed.
And there's so damn many familiar voice actors in it.  Professor Frink's voice actor is talking right now and it's like, exactly Prof Frink.  Kinda scrambling my brain.  Oh gawd, it's just so stupid. Someone save me.

I wonder if my mom cringed in horror at the crappy cartoons I watched as a kid.  I've gone back for the nostalgia-value and rewatched some of them in more recent years, and some of them really were gawd-awful.  lol.

gotta take the good with the bad

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 4, 2012, 12:51 AM


There's been a mish-mash of things lately, but overall, things are good.  The bad has been minimal, and solved fairly quickly, so it's not overpowering.

I spent yesterday from around 6pm until 2am at the ER for abdominal pain.  They never figured out what was actually going on, but they did rule out my appendix, my pancreas, and gal stones as possible causes - and those are the big-baddies.  They had me doped up on pain meds for most of the evening and I was still sitting at a solid 8 on the pain scale for about half that time (it did finally numb down to a 6, after the 3rd shot of pain meds), so I'd hate to think of how bad it would have been if I'd tried to stay home and ignore it like I'd been inclined to, at first.

The pain actually started yesterday morning around 10am, so I DID in fact, try to ignore it, from 10am until 6pm... which is probably longer than I should have, but at least I did eventually give in and go to the damn hospital.

But like I said - they never really figured out the cause.  They did eventually give me this malty-mouth-numbing concoction that was supposed to numb my stomach and relax the muscles or something.  It was after that, that I finally started to feel better.  They said it was some sort of gastritis? I think (I actually don't know what that is) - so... really really bad gas?  Yeah - craziness.  Because, seriously - it was a 9 before the pain meds.  And I've had pancreatitis before - I've experienced pain.  I have a pretty wide pain scale and I tolerate a lot of shit that sane people wouldn't sit through.

But that's done and over with now, and I've been considerably better today.

On the much-better-and-brighter side of things, next week is my birthday and my husband has surprised me with a trip to the coast!

We're going to this little touristy-coast town in Oregon called Newport.  It's a 3.5hr drive from where we live, and everyone we've told that we're going has been stunned that we'd never bothered to go there before.  Everyone else is like 'I go there every year' or whatever.  

It's kind of pathetic, really, considering that I now live in a costal state, and STILL have only been to the ocean like... 5 times, in my whole life.

I grew up in Nebraska, which is as landlocked as you can get, and didn't see the ocean at all until I was 18 or 19 years old.  Maybe even 20, now that I think about it...  I'd lived in the Seattle area for over a year before I finally took a trip to the coast.  And that was about as cold, dreary, and shabby a beach as one could imagine - lol.

Took a cruise for my honeymoon, so we literally sailed in the ocean for 6 days for that, so I can at least say I got to see loads of sea during that time. he.

But yeah - I'm psyched to get to go to Newport. :D  I've been wanting to do it for so damn long, but it's just never been the right time.  There's always been reasons not to go, so I'm glad that we're finally just going to do it.  The kids are going to freaking love it.  Apparently there's a section of beach by the docks that's just filled with seals, and you can go on boat charters for whale watching.  Neeeat :D

Our hotel is right on the beach and it's right down from the wharf and the docks where all the touristy stores and restaurants are.  And there's a really great aquarium, and a wax museum, and a Ripley's Believe it or Not, so lots of stuff for the kids to enjoy too.  Yay.


I've gotta tell you - when my gut started acting up yesterday, I was soooo worried that it would end up something bad that was going to fuck up my trip, and that sucked.  lol...

Five years ago I had pancreatitis caused by a gal stone that got stick in the duct to my pancreas, and ended up in the hospital for over a week, doped up on morphine, and undergoing surgery to make sure I didn't die.  So yeah - Not wanting a repeat of any week-long pain-fests anytime soon.

It was the main reason I said 'fuck it' and went into the ER.  With the Pancreas thing I sort of maybe tried to ignore it and suffer through it for two days before going to the hospital and having them tell me I nearly died, soooooo.... yeah.  I learned my lesson.

Anyway, this has gotten long enough that I'm sure no one has read it.

Progress so far:










The arms are made up of a LOT of very tiny parts.  It was SUCH a pain in the ass to get them to print properly.  Teeny tiny parts are not easy!  It was very frustrating until I got a good system down.  I also had problems with curling, and when you're already working at such a small scale, that makes it that much more difficult.

So, I started another group

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 24, 2012, 11:12 AM


I started another group here on DA.  So now I run 3 of them - lol.  Two of them (this new one, being one) are pretty low-key, low-demand, so I don't expect this one to take nearly as much constant daily maintenance as :icon3dmodeling: does.  That group got huge, somehow.  

This new one is :icon3dprinters: and is a group specifically for people who own/use 3d printers to print their models.  Woo.  Like I said - not a huge audience for this, so I suspect it'll remain fairly small.  Although in the last few days since I started it, we have gotten 10 members and I've manged to flesh out the gallery pretty well.  :)  So it's a promising start.

Teaser image - guess what I'm making

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 20, 2012, 9:59 AM


I wonder if anyone will be able to guess what this is...

What you see below is actually 4 separate printed objects that lock in place together as a single object.  There is still a lot more to go after this.  This is just the very end of the object I'm making.  ;)

It has nothing to do with my daughter's zelda costume - this is a totally different bit of geekery. heh.





It's taken quite a bit of work to figure out the best way to break this object up into multiple pieces so that I can print it properly.  And this is only the simplest bit of it.

More progress on the Zelda Costume

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 17, 2012, 11:45 AM


Haven't got a lot to show, but I have made some progress.  First off, I just managed to finish the earrings.  They're clip-ons because Kaya's ears aren't pierced.







And I also finished the straps in the back of the shoulder pauldrons, so she can actually wear them now.

I think I want to try and add in something that will push the 2nd pieces of each shoulder pauldron (the part that dangles down over the upper-arms) so that they're held out a bit, instead of just hanging down like they are now.  Otherwise, it's turning out pretty good.  She can move around and they don't appear to be overly ready to just fall off.  :)
