Made my friend Eileen a bracelet tonight, hope it fits. Found out that it only takes about 40 minutes of work to make now, so instead of a substantive post, you get OVERLOADED WITH PICTURES!
Step 1: Individual Chains
Make two European 4-in-1 chains, one with metal outsides, one with rubber insides. (In the picture, the blue is metal, the black is rubber)
Step 2: Two are made one!
Seam the two chains together into one singular chain. This is where it starts looking AWESOME.
Step DONE: Yep, Done.
Join both ends of the chain together, ready to attach the wrist!
That's how it's done.
I had a wonderful day for a lot of reasons today.
- Watched the Caprica Pilot again last night - don't spoil the show for me, I need to catch it on hulu.
- Slept late this morning - always awesome
- Did laundry! - I hear clean clothing is all the rage now
- ... other things
- Sold chainmaille! - People actually bought something I made \o/
No links today, wasn't online... like AT ALL (maybe I should add that to the list).
Tonight I got my membership at Anytime Fitness with my buddy Scott, so now I can work out whenever I feel like it! Hopefully I start feeling like it soon... this membership junk isn't cheap.
News from other worlds
I posted this zombie thing on my Facebook status the other day:
I came to work the next day and a Andrew tells me "Dude! That stupid zombie thing you posted gave me nightmares last night! I dreamed I was running around the studio with a shotgun because [Famous Star Who Shall Not Be Named] had been turned into a zombie!"
Needless to say, I LOLed, as did everyone else who heard the story.
Things that happened:
I had a random adventure in video casting last night, if you want to see the recording, please head over to the show page for Boredom Rampant on ustream.tv. The first 10 minutes are okay, I kinda liked the little logo I made, and then the show sorta devolved because I didn't really pick a topic. I got some pretty positive feedback from the twothree people who watched it, so I'll probably try again.
That pretty much wraps up tonight's spam. Sorry for the crappy posts the past few days, but you get what you paid for, and nobody paid me NUFFIN!
I just have nothing to say. I wasted all my creative energies in the first 10 seconds of the broadcast tonight. If you want to watch 21 minutes of yammering on about nothing at all, feel free to watch the video.
I'm going to bed. I'll do a filler post with links and stuff in the morning, I'm just not into it right now.
First thing I said when I walked in the door tonight was "oh crap! is it still today?!"
Sorry for forgetting you today my poor blog. I'll post a doubleplusgood entry for tomorrow, and don't forget that the first Boredom Rampant show is happening tomorrow night (schedule TBD). Please post any suggestions for topics or whatever ASAP.
See you in a few hours!
- Devil's Panties (comic) - I loved my epic journey through the archives of this one. Thanks for reinspiring my love of doing insane things Jennie!
I think a big part of it is the meetup I'm trying to organize with the group of World of Warcraft players I consider my guildmates in Midnight Run. This is the crew that I really enjoyed the game with and to be honest, the only reason I still play it. I'd also like all of you to come too! Hopefully we can all get together outside of the interwebs!
People seem to assume that as a male of my generation who is involved in technology that I must be an avid player or even afficianado of video games. The truth is that I am rarely a consumer of that type of entertainment. When I was a kid we never had video games in the house. Now my sister is coowner of a local game store. Does this mean I have some kind of unconscious link to the video game news media? That I know when every new game comes out? All the rumor about the latest vaporware or your favorite ancient title that might he ressurected? Probably not, but I might be able to get a game that you used to love but forgot existed.
I may not know shit. About shit, but you can bet that I can find out.
