    • Day 1689: Takeover

      3 hours ago

      topham DHYB

      Tonight NXT takeover is on, and I can't wait to watch it tomorrow morning. It should be good, there are some matches I'm really interested in, and I can't wait to see the outcomes. 


      Today I sat down and recorded some music and it felt good, it wasn't too taxing, and it came together quite naturally. Before I started writing I watched Dave Grohls Play thing that he did, which was a cool 30 minute video where the first 8 minutes is a cool little introduction and the following 23 minutes is a long instrumental track. It was really motivating, and I'm glad I checked it out this morning. 


      I've also been playing some Path of Exile, and just when I think I'm getting to grips with the game, it throws something new at me, and I don't really know what to do. I'm currently stuck trying to find better weapons that I can use so my damage can be higher and consistent, but also trying to figure out what progression path I should be following to pick on the passive skill tree. 


      I'm looking forward to tomorrow morning, where I hope to watch some wrestling and record some more music, then later in the day, play some more Path of Exile. I'm kind of torn about path of Exile, but it's mostly due to the update that is due in 2 weeks, as it's kind of introducing a new mode and it'll start a new league, which I understand to be similar to seasons in Diablo. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1688: whirlwind of chaos

      1 day ago

      topham DHYB

      Today dragged on, as time at work was very slow. I'm feeling tired and it's only 9.30, and I've been feeling a bit behind on sleep all week. That didn't stop me running the fastest 5km I think I've ever run, at 22 mins 46 seconds and then I followed it up with a boxercise class. All in all exercise time went well. 


      This week has been a whirlwind of chaos, and it's been interesting, but rather draining. I'm looking forward to resetting over the weekend, hopefully getting some music written and recorded, and there's a few bits of pro wrestling to watch too. 


      I started reading Equal Rites, the Third Discworld novel earlier in the week, and I'm hoping I can find time to read more of that too. It starts off very amusing, with the seventh son of a seventh son due to be born, but the wizard who has travelled to hand over their staff never thought to check once the child was born whether it was male of female, and then hilarity ensues as a witch deems it all unnatural and tries to reverse 'the course of nature'. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1687: Figuring out stuff I've written

      2 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I delved into some music I've written in the past, something I wrote I reckon a year ago, and I didn't really know what I expected. I'd clearly decided that writing a piece of music in 9/8 timing was sensible, but it all made sense when I listened back to each part. The hard part was identifying what I was playing, especially as the guitar in my hands was a whole step tuned down to what it was when I initially recorded.


      It took me some time, but I found the groove that I had before and after a while I managed to put together what I'd done. I kind of need to actually write it down, so that I can keep track of it all, but I had written some tasty riffs. I'm looking forward to actually making progress on this music. I also tried writing something in the style of High On Fire , but I wasn't nearly good enough with my riffs, but some elements were there because it didn't sound terrible. I think adding bass to it would add to it, so I probably will do that over the weekend. 


      I'm glad it's now going to be a case of 'I want to record something' and I can just go to my computer and in minutes have a riff recorded and have a drum beat beneath it. There are a few more ideas I want to try and record, but today was a good step in the right direction. 


      Then I started playing Monster Hunter World again after a few days of wanting to get back into it a bit. There was an event quest that I failed on more than I'd like to discuss, then I took on an investigation I knew I could handle. There's a build I want to work on, but I don't really know how to handle sword and shield so I went back to my trusty greatsword, which I know I need to get away from. I might start working on my alternate save file to get good at sword and shield. I never did get good and reliable at taking on Nergigante. 


      Today I released a podcast with Shoban about our current(ish) fitness adventures and playlisting music. It was a good chat, but I know I recorded it about 4 weeks ago, so it might not be particularly up to date on some things we're chatting about. You can check it out here!

    • Day 1686: reflecting and hoping to removing obstacles

      3 days ago

      topham DHYB

      I have been working on a list since the beginning of the week to just get stuff done. I've started tidying the room I've been hiding away in, and I decided to try and create more space. I made some progress and also pulled out my mac mini which is now connected up in another room, but it's at least set up and takes up minimal space as it's integrated into my dads system. The reason for getting it out was to remove a step that I feel has been holding me back in recording music, as Garageband can automatically generate some drums for me to work with, which makes things significantly easier. I hope to see if I actually get things recorded soon, but I don't want to tie myself into believing something that could well be nonsense. 


      This week has been strange. Work has been kind of hectic, all over the place, and there's been a lot of controversy, and I don't think many people are actually happy with the state of the place. I've heard more phone calls and meetings going on with the bosses than is usual for a month over the last 3 days. Next week my replacement is starting also, so I'm looking forward to getting that all moving, but my list of items that need addressing only got finished and established today, and it's quite numerous. I'm going to have quite the burden over the next few weeks, but I get to share the load, at least I hope I do. 


      I'm off to D&D tonight and I'm looking forward to it, but I was thinking earlier in the day about how to try and convert Monster Hunter World style game play into a table top game. I spent some time letting it ruminate in my mind, and I'm going to discuss it with my group tonight and see if I can prototype a version with them in a few weeks. 


      I'm feeling quite creative and motivated at the moment to get things done, except at work, which is strange, I need a change of scenery, and I know that transition is on the horizon, so I'm looking forward to it all, but there's still stuff to be done. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1685: The Desire for Fast Legs

      4 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Yesterday, I did a little run on the treadmill at the gym. I did more stuff after the run, but the run was good. I ran for 6 minutes, and I ran a mile. It was a tough run, but I felt I could do better, but that's the fastest I've ever ran. I ran a mile in 6 minutes. I was ecstatic after and I felt great. That was my main focus for the gym, that was my intention for going yesterday, and I smashed it. I also was on the cross trainer for about 25 minutes, and then did a circuit which was tough and good. 


      I've been slowly getting faster in running each time I've stepped on the treadmill, the last few weeks have been a focus on getting my overall speed better, and hoping that'll have an impact on my 5km time, and then longer term endurance too. My 5km time is less than 25 minutes now, but it started from trying to prove that I thought I had ran 1.5km in 6 minutes, and having managed that a few weeks ago, I was interested to see how fast I could run for 6 minutes. 2 weeks ago I wasn't anticipating hitting that 6 minute mile so soon, but I believed I could within a few weeks. 


      My training routine is probably more relaxed than people would think it'd be. The first 2 weeks I ran for 6 minutes, just trying to get to that 1.5km, then followed it up with a 25 minute session on the stepping machine for one day. I did boxercise another day, just boxercise, then on Fridays I'd get to the gym, run for 20-25 minutes, and then do boxercise. That's it. I try to eat well, and don't drink, and I believe drinking is so detrimental to exercise improvements that to anyone looking to get into shape I'll always suggest dropping it first or making people aware of how it'll affect what you're looking to accomplish. Once I got past the step machine time I used the cross trainer, and then did a weights circuit, or a general exercise circuit with bodyweight exercises.


      I kept mixing it up, and boxercise is never the same, so variety is the name of the game in my training. The only thing I really keep consistent in it is weighted jump squats, and I'm currently breezing through 10 loaded with a 15kg sand bag, but that's the largest sand bag that's available. I was considering getting a weighted vest, but I don't know what I'd do with it once I leave, so I've kept putting off purchasing it, but I think that'd be a sensible next step to increase the intensity of exercise. 


      Anyway, I went on a bit of a rant. All this came from wanting to run 1.5km in 6 minutes, then I just wanted to run fast. I believed I could do it, and made gradual improvements, and kept pushing myself. I think I can run fast, I know I can, so I'm going to try that, but I want to try a longer run at higher speed than I used to go, aim for that 5km in 20minutes. Try and smash things out this year that I've never achieved before. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1684: Music Monday!

      5 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Last week I didn't find much time to enjoy music and listen to stuff. Actually, I expect from next week for a couple of weeks I won't be able to get much listening done. Oh well, no bother. I'll just find time outside of work to enjoy music.


      I've been listening to a band called Against the Current, who are a pop rock band. I don't know what it is about them, but I like it. They play some fun music, put together some good melodies, and I like their In Our Bones album. I don't know what else to share about them, but they're good, I reckon most people would like them, they're non-offensive, so they've got that going for them. 


      I'm very much looking forward to this Friday as the new NSP album is coming out, I'll likely write all about it next week, but for now, I'll say that I like what I've heard so far, not too keen on one of the tracks they've put out, but I'm not too surprised. 


      I have also found myself listening a lot to Baroness, a heavy metal band, who have put out some excellent music over the past few years. Their first album, The Red Album, is highly rated and rightly so, it's a fascinating listen, that's diverse and has a lot of atmosphere to it. But the reason they stick out, is that a few years ago, on a tour over here, they got into an accident while touring for The Yellow and Green album, which was big news over here. At least, it was where I was looking. The band recovered, but it took some time, took a toll on the band, but through it all wrote Purple, which tells a story, and is a delight to listen to. Clearly, it's a heavy metal album, therefore it's not for everyone, but they're certainly one of the best bands around at the moment, and they've got a new album on the way. I'm looking forward to seeing what's coming. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1683: Discovery

      6 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Over the last few days I've started enjoying the internet series 'Hot Ones', where people eat things I'll never eat, cooked in a sauce I'll never have. That's clearly not the appealing part to me, but the interview section of it is fascinating. Spicing it up (literally) with a bit of action between the questions, and you've got me hooked on a show. Now, if you were to say, oh there's this show where people eat very spicy chicken, well, that just doesn't appeal, but having watched it, I am starting to understand the appeal. 


      Aside from that I've really enjoyed this years G1 tournament, the final was today, and it was a great showing from all involved. It kind of had me burnt out as it's a lot of wrestling, 19 3 hour shows is so much to watch, over the course of a month, but I persevered, and I thought some of the matches were incredible. 


      This weekend has been enjoyable, Incredibles 2 was good, we had home made pizzas, I made chilli today, and have been chilled out. One week until my replacement is supposed to turn up at work, so all is a bit crazy at the moment. This week will be interesting!


      Have an excellent week! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1682: Incredible

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I went to the cinema and saw The Incredibles 2. I enjoyed it, it was fun, and I liked that it told a completely different story from the first film. It was a very fast 2 hours or so as well, which I wasn't expecting. 


      I am also all caught up on the NJPW G1 in preparation for the final tomorrow. No spoilers, but this years tournament has been amazing, and it's been a delight to watch. I've particularly enjoyed watching Tomohiro Ishii wrestle, and getting to know the styles of many of the wrestlers. 


      I don't have much else to say, it's been a pretty normal day, with pizza and path of exile for the remainder of it. Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1681: Distracted

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      Hopefully no one notices how late this journal is, because yesterday was a distracting day as Rachael was celebrating her birthday, but we were caught up in a hunt for a rogue present. I sent her a gift and it ended up with an alert on the postal services tracker that took nearly a whole day to track down as it had been put in an area it wasn't supposed to have, and had been somewhat forgotten about apparently. 


      Eventually it was found and collected, and everyone was happy in the end. 


      I did spend the time I could have been writing this journal playing guitar, I found a few decent backing tracks and tried to change my approach to lead playing, and tailor it to the backing track. I was playing along with a John Mayer style backing track, and realised that I should probably play a few more double stops, and use the double stops alongside some legato to get that John Mayer/Jimi Hendrix vibe going on, and that was fun, but clearly I need to work on my fluidity with that, as some times it felt a bit out of place. 


      The other specific backing track I was playing along to was a David Gilmour style one, which was quite Pink Floyd like, and I worked on some arpeggio style playing into bends, as I was really thinking about the solo from Comfortably Numb. I had a great time trying to emulate these players, I know I want to try and recreate some other guitarists phrasing, particularly Eric Clapton and BB King, but I'm actually less familiar with their typical lead riffs, so I think I have to listen to more music. What a shame. 


      Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

      3 Years ago I was at RTX, and I met Rachael. It was a great weekend, I also met a lot of other people, but none so with the effect and impact on my life as much as her. Things changed 3 years ago, I went from perennially single to a man in a relationship with a lady. 


      Of course, we're still long distance for the time being, but we're going through the immigration process to close the distance, and that's taking some time. 


      However, she's bought the best out of me, and I'm glad our paths cross and became entwined back in Austin. While RTX was on over the weekend, I had no real longing to be there, sure I want to catch up with my friends, but I was not interested in attending the event. Somehow, after only 3 trips to the convention, I've lost any desire to go, while I know people who have been 5 or 6 times so far that are just as hyped to go as ever. 


      Who knows what the future holds, but with a lifetime adventure buddy by my side, I'm sure we'll never go wrong. There are pictures on facebook and instagram, and all the ones Rachael chose are ones where I'm smiling, I'm happy, it's all happy, happy happy smiles. 


      That's all for today, have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

      Okay. Random question. You're one of my British-type friends. Do you guys spell "mold" with a "u?" Like, "mould?" I can't tell if that's a typo I came across or a legit culture difference thing.

      Ive noticed on here your one of the more active guys from the UK? Been a fan for like 7 years, but only really now got involved in the community. Basically Im looking at going RTX next year, so make some friends now, so I have got people to go with next year.

        Ah cool! Where abouts in the UK are you?

        Have a look in the forums for the UK fans threads, I can't remember the exact names, I think one of them is 'Who's from the UK?' and there's 'English RT Fans Unite' as well, though the English fans thread has loads of in jokes and can be quite offensive. This weekend RvB Scotland are doing their thing and streaming a bunch of activities, and they've got a game day in Glasgow, while there is a RT: UK meet up in London. Next weekend is London MCM where there will be a bunch of fans going, and a whole load of shenanigans going on.

        The community is pretty wonderful, I can't remember all the people right now who I should point you in the direction of, there are some people on the community hunter channel, Hightower, iSayWhat and The_Hybrid that are all busy on there, making videos and are a right laugh. Then there's Boomer who runs RT: UK which is on in September this year, and that'll be a riot, and there's a summer meet up too! Loads of things going on around the place too.

        Anyway, there's more than I can cover in the short time I have on lunch, but if you have any questions let me know, and for anything else, just jump in and have fun =)

        On the 30th? No. I have work, and it's impossible to get time off at the moment because a load of stuff is going down. I was lucky enough to get one day off to go to a concert with my dad. I think I'm going to London on the 28th though to visit museums with someone.

      You go to Download every year? I'd love to go even once but making the trip to England is way out of any budget I could imagine right now. What's your favorite band?

        Dude, Adam Lambert killed it. Great freaking rock show with some great tributes to Freddie thrown in along the way. They were in Dallas the week after last year's RTX. Their the reason I only spent 4 days in Austin instead of 8. I wasn't going to miss Queen when they were so close to my hometown (I live 2 hours drive from Dallas, 4 hours from Austin) in what may very well be their final tour. I took some of my spending money from my RTX fund and bought a ticket. I just had to.

        Yeah man, it's one of those things. I can say in the moment that it's probably Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I could easily have written Marmozets, Pvris, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Agalloch, Gorguts or Soilwork among many others. How were Queen? My parents saw them a few weeks ago with Adam Lambert and said it was an incredible show.

      • JTNipp Mr. Trombone

        3 years ago

        for years and years its been Queen. I did get to see them in Dallas, TX last year so I'm happy about that. As far as the more Metal side of things, I don't really have a specific favorite. Just whichever one I'm in the mood for. Like you, I have some appreciation for most types of music.

        Hey man! I'm actually not going this year, it's out of my budget with the trip to RTX coming up, but my favourite band right now is probably Diablo Swing Orchestra. How about yours?

      Thank you for putting up with me and my stupidity! Also, thank you for laughing at me and pointing out my stupidity smiley8.gif
      No but seriously, thanks for being a friend and offering to be my travel buddy because I probably wouldn't be going to RTX if you hadn't! Also, thanks for letting me be a guest on your chats, even if I am a shitty guest because I don't do my research and try to kill you with my cat smiley1.gif

      Most of all; thanks for being you smiley12.gif

      Have an awesome evening, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      David,
      I am forever grateful to you for helping a brother out and I hope what I was able to do in return was at least sufficient. You are a genuinely good dude, and that vibe is hard to get online a lot of times. I do drop in your RT conversation videos from time to time and I think you are doing a great thing with those! Much respect, brotha!

      Thanks for always being a cornerstone of this community, it's hard to think of the RT site without thinking of you and your daily posts and videos. You never cease to make me smile when we do get to play gaimez and hang out and I feel privileged to have been able to meet you in person not so long ago. I've always enjoyed our conversations; never change and stay amazing ^_^

      Are you feeling warm? Are you feeling fuzzy? Well get ready to! (And then go see a doctor because those things aren't normal D:)

      TOP! TOP HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! The first time we ever played together, I said to someone later, "Top reminds me of candy," And you do! You're so jolly and happy and sweet - you're candy, Top! Metaphorically of course - or....or literally?? (...I've got to stop telling bad jokes!)

      But for reals - you're actually one of the nicest people I know and your kindness knows no limits. Everything you do, you attack with this positive attitude that, frankly, inspires me to do the same. :] Keep being wonderful, Top, and know that every time I see your post or see your name in Mumble, it puts a huge grin on my face! You're fantastic!

      Hey man thanks for kind words. I've always enjoyed talking to you and seeing the things you say and, at times, argue about in chat. You have great passion for the things you do and I wish I had that.

      Although I don't really say much during RT Radio, I like seeing everyone's interactions and contributing the small bits that I do. Thank you for being there, like everyone on the site, for listening to what I gotta say and when I need to vent.

      You are an exceptional person and, like you, can't wait to meet in person. Hope you are having a lovely day. smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley0.gif

      You have such a kind heart. I love hearing your thoughts on things and all about the cool things you do with the being a scientist thing and the music stuff and all of it. You are also an outstanding member of our Spread the Love admin staff. When you send me Christmas cards and such, they never fail to make me smile. I cannot express how damn excited I am to meet you at RTX this year, man.
      Spread the love with Warm Fuzzies of your own today!

    Hey!


    Unfortunately I am not the best at drawing, and arting in that fashion. There are plenty of people around here who are great at that kind of thing! People like Raf, OneBlueWolf, Lambency, Scheree, SailorGirl81, Myshu, Gaelfox, NaomiC and a few others are around here, I'd also recommend exploring the scary world of tumblr where there are quite a significant concentration of other community artists.


    Have an excellent day!
