    • Day 1574: Removing small decisions

      1 hour ago

      topham DHYB

      I'm not good at making decisions when I wake up. I realised that the last few days I've been held up by taking what feels like forever getting ready for work, but a few weeks ago, when I was also waking up early for work, I was picking out clothes so as to cause minimal commotion while I was getting ready. A side effect of this was that I had the decision made the night before, and waking up became easier as I didn't have to think, I just had to haul my carcass into the shower and turn it on. Then I would be clean, and the clothes would be ready to equip, and my day would begin. I also eat the same breakfast every morning, drive the same route and try to park in the same spot in the car park, so the decisions along the way are minimal and have low impact if something is a little off. 


      What this means is that for the first hour to hour and a half of my day where it is critical to get to work efficiently and on time, I make it and I feel like I've expended very little energy. Of course, I'm not stuck to this routine, because each week I'm on a different shift, but I'm at least remaining consistent and not screwing things up every morning, and I'm able to immediately start at work without any impact. 


      Anyway, it's been an interesting day. I found myself watching someones live instagram story thing earlier, it was an interesting time, and a cool stream. Made me think that I really need to practice more guitar though, and maybe be a little more committed to getting better. 


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

    • Day 1573: little cycling improvements

      1 day ago

      topham DHYB

      Today I made progress and shared some secret plans with some secret people. It's been quite the secret day. 


      Though I think what's going to be more telling will be the podcast released later this week where I share my thoughts on the latest RT Documentary. I thought it could have been better, I had thoughts, but I think I talked about them for 20 minutes, so my thoughts will stay in audio form only for the time being. 


      This week is going somewhat smoothly, but I know things are going to get thrown up on Thursday, so I know that's all happening and I'm prepared. 


      I went for a little bike ride today, the weather turned wet and I thought it was a good day for it, so I got muddier than I've been in a long time. I managed to cut 7 minutes off the route, and I can put that down to changing to a lighter bike, because I was using my big full suspension mountain bike, but I've now switched to my dads fixed frame much lighter bike, and the gears are much easier to manipulate, and ride. 


      I'm looking forward to doing some more cycling, and that's exciting! Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!

    • Day 1572: Music Monday

      2 days ago

      topham DHYB

      I spent some time over the weekend trying to figure out what I actually wanted to listen to. On Friday I knew I wanted something to sing along to, so I listened to Dio, but it wasn't cutting it. I had a desire for something more, something I knew better, something that inspired me. It took me until 25 minutes into driving and doing activities on Saturday morning to figure out what I needed to listen to. 


      Then it hit me. 


      Symphony X. One of my favourite bands. One of the best progressive metal bands, in my opinion. 


      And there it was, sing along music that I'm not good enough to keep up with, but something to aspire to musically. I think I went with a random sampling of their catalogue of music, and it was a great time. I haven't seen them at their own show, but I have seen them support other bands and play shorter sets, but I think I need to see them again, and witness their majesty. 


      I have found myself over the last week listening to music rather than podcasts, because my brain has been quite noisy, and I think putting music up against the brain noise rather than people talking is definitely the way forwards, because if I'm not able to pay attention to the podcast I'm enjoying then I'm wasting time listening to peoples effort. Clearly music is peoples effort, but I'll only listen to music I'm familiar with at those times, so I'm not going to be missing out on something new. 


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


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1571: Thinking Thoughts

      3 days ago

      topham DHYB

      I watched the new Documentary, and I have some thoughts. But I don't really know what they are just yet. I don't feel like a lot of people got much time, nor do I feel they touched on the evolution on the company enough and it all felt a little rushed. However, if it were up to me, which it wasn't I likely would have had it run significantly longer, and paired the founders and had discussions there, rather than having them seeming take it in turn. 


      Okay, I'm done with thoughts for the time being. It has made me question what I do for a living, I think it was specifically Gavins remark that you should be able to have fun while you're working. I know I'm not having a lot of fun, in fact I'm under a whole bunch of stress at work, but I'm also aware that I'm coming to the end of my time, so I have that keeping me going for now. 


      This weekend has been relaxing, I played a bunch of Destiny 2 and Rachyrock and I watched a whole bunch of things. I thoroughly enjoyed Mario Kart Mapril, and some of the other videos that have come out recently, actually I'd like to think that Achievement Hunter are having a fantastic 2018 so far, everything I've decided to put on I've enjoyed. Sure, I've been a bit picky, but still, if everything I've picked to watch has been enjoyable, then a random sampling roughly represents the whole lot, especially when I feel like I'm watching over half the content that comes out each week. 


      I've also tried watching a few people on twitch, but I never really find the time for it. All in all, I'm finding more and more things to keep me distracted. I'm excited to watch more wrestling and this week on Friday evening there will be the Greatest Royal Rumble, and that'll be very enjoyable, I hope. I'm really enjoying watching NXT, probably the best american show on at the moment, though I haven't watched any ROH. I am looking forward to seeing where Johnny Gargano goes, and how he fares over the next few weeks, but he's another person that I remember watching back when I was enjoying Chikara Pro, as part of the FIST stable with Chuck Taylor and Icarus, having destabilised the trio and got them to kick out Gran Akuma. Anyway, it's good to see him performing so well in NXT. It's also great to see Ricochet, or Helios as he was known in Chikara. It really seems like that 2009-2012 run in Chikara is putting people to WWE that are performing very well, the other person that really stands out, and he has been noted as the most underrated wrestler for 4 years or so, is Cesaro, or as I knew his stage name, Claudio Castagnoli. And he posted on twitter a picture of him with some little lions. 


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

    • Day 1570: Time for a new photo

      4 days ago

      topham DHYB

      I will absolutely update my profile photo soon, the current one is probably about 3 year old. Which means it doesn't do the best job at covering my massive change in appearance that hasn't happened. My hair has got a little longer. 


      As for what is actually going on, I went over to my apartment, checked it out, made sure it was still okay, ran water all throughout, just to make sure it all still worked and the water wasn't stagnant. I picked a few things up and bought them back.


      Then I played some Monster Hunter and did some hunts with the lads, and we had a good old time beating the new big Monster and getting some fancy rewards. I also started learning sword and shield. It's an interesting time, certainly different from the greatsword I was using before. 


      I also played some more Destiny 2, and watched some more Miraculous with Rachyrock and that was good, we might be all caught up with it, but there's too many things unresolved, but that's what you get for watching a series that is mid-way through a season. 


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


      Peace -x-


    • Day 1569: Friday!

      5 days ago

      topham DHYB

      This has been a tough week, and it is time to recover. I think next week I'm going to have a lot of stuff to do and prepare for the audits that are happening. It's going to be another interesting day. 


      I'm looking forward to just chilling out, watching things, maybe playing a few games and having some rubbish food. And maybe I'll do a little exercise as well. 


      I did some playing of Monster Hunter with the new event monster being around with the lads, it was fun, then I have been playing some Iron Banner in D2, and I've been on the receiving end of being mercied 3 games in a row. Fun. 


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

    • Day 1568: Stufffff

      6 days ago

      topham DHYB

      Today was an alright day, I went to TKD training and had a good time. It's the hottest day in April in 70-odd years, and our instructor pushed us and got us to spar. It was a great time for me, I haven't sparred in months, and the reminder from the other members of the club that I've not really lost anything in my sparring is really encouraging. 


      I have taken my time doing nearly everything today, and it feels good to have just decompressed for a few days, sure, one batch I was testing in work took all day to put right, or nearly put right, but other work was accomplished too. 


      When I got home I knew I was going out to training, I knew I wanted to walk, and I knew I wanted to play a little bit of guitar, so I did all of that, and it was glorious. I was walking home as the sun was setting, and it was cool, while walking I listened to Pvris and had a good time. 


      This week has been strange, and tomorrow looks to be no different really, but I will get to chill out in the evening and eat pizza and chocolate and that's going to be great. 


      I recorded a podcast with mr KillerKel earlier in the week and we talked about a whole bunch of games, and a little bit about his new(ish) kitten. You can check it out here!

    • Day 1567: Realisation

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      The last few minutes I've been sitting, staring at my screen, trying to figure out what I want to watch, if anything, and came to the realisation that I'm not into watching much at the moment. Sure I'm putting on top rated wrestling matches and seeing how they progress, and keeping up with storylines there, but I realised what I should be doing, or what would help would be to put on some music and chill out. 


      So I did. I put on some Buckethead for the time being, and started getting lost in the music. I do have incredible desire to write music, but I played guitar for an hour and didn't come up with anything, so I guess it wasn't meant to be today. I did make some progress on the riffs I have been working on, but I don't think that's really enough, I need to get some more structured things down. 


      I hope to get some more ideas hashed out, but I might once again turn to reddit to find some people to write some random music with, or at the least contribute my skills to others' projects. Who knows what I'll end up doing, but I want to get some more music laid down. 


      Aside from that, I did get back into the swing of things today after yesterdays calamity. Well, have an excellent day! You're all my favourites! 


      Peace -x-

    • Day 1565: Music Monday

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      I've found myself trying to find something to listen to recently, and I keep coming back to Dio's Holy Diver album, again and again. I had some thoughts, then I went to fact check them, and they were slightly off. The album was well received upon release, I'd argue that it stands up better than most albums, especially as I'm still listening to it frequently, and it's a solid album the whole way through. It's definitely one of my favourites, and I'm glad I took some time to listen to it today. There's a track on it that is one that I can't help but sing along to when it comes on, it's called Rainbow in the Dark, and I don't know how well known it is, it isn't even the most popular track off that album, let alone of Dio's songs in general, but it's one that I completely adore. 


      As for what else has been playing in my ears, well, there was this one track that caught me off guard and I immediately hunted down the rest of the album and devoured that too. It was a track called Neoprene Byzantine by Closure in Moscow off their album Pink Lemonade. I don't really know how to explain it, but it's certainly got elements of The Mars Volta, and Fall of Troy, and a female singer, as well as a male singer, and there's spoken elements of it. It's a very enjoyable album, it'd probably go in the prog rock realm, but that probably do them justice. 


      I've also been listening to a bunch of Buckethead too, and it's been an all around good time. I want to listen to more of his music, but he creates so much, I can barely find time to listen to everything that's available on Spotify. I also was reminded off Fall of Troy recently, I didn't know they'd put out an album in 2016, so I checked that out too and enjoyed it, but I really wanted to listen to the stuff I already knew so I blew through a few albums to satiate my audial desires. 


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

      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 =)

      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?

      • JTNipp Mr. Trombone

        3 years ago

        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.

      • topham FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold DHYB

        3 years ago

        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.

      So I got mail from the UK today and TJ's first question was "Is it from Topham?" smiley0.gif

        Yeah. He just assumes UK = Topham at this point. Haha.

      Hi smiley1.gif
      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

      No, but seriously. You're an awesome dude... an inspiration even. I watch every Topham Chat. You and I might be the lonely few who are still playing Destiny! and I thought you might appreciate that... Happy Valentine's Day!

        There should be in a comma in there that makes it seem like I'm looking forward to both. Maybe I'll never return to the thread due to that error.

      Hey dude, hope you're having a Top day. It's great reading your journals each day, you always seem really enthusiastic about everything you do and I hope we can meet one day at an RTUK event and have banter over a pint.

      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 ^_^
      Love, Shelby smiley12.gif

      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!
