A while back, I bought the DDRMAX soundtrack, as I’ve been buying all of the DDR soundtracks for a while now. I really liked one of the songs on it, WWW.Blonde Girl (which evidently is a favorite of quite a few people). I liked it so much that I wanted the full 2:39 version, instead of the 1:05 DDR short version. So I bought the Dancemania CD that it came from, which had a few other songs on it that were interesting (A dance remix of Eyes on Me among other things).

The problem was that the Dancemania CD was a megamix CD, which means at the beginning and the end of the Track, it bled into the previous and next songs. This wouldn’t do if I just wanted to put the song into my MP3 player and listen to it.

So, in an act that Luke called “obsessive”, I edited the three versions of the song together… the beginning of the DDR version from the DDRMAX Megamix on Disc 2, the middle of the 2:30 version from Dancemania, and the end of the DDR version from the DDRMAX Disc 1. I got a finished product that is very pleasing, and I uploaded it to my MP3 player. Whee.

Saturday Checklist:

  • Go to Doctor, get dressing changed for the tenth time (literally)… check.
  • Go to Greenslip, get car smog checked to L.A. standards for twice as much because of higher standards… check.
  • Go to AAA to renew membership and re-register car that’s almost a month overdue… well, gee, why was AAA closed? I don’t seem to remember it being closed on Saturday before. In fact, at least three other people came by the office expecting it to be open, and all found it to be closed. If that many people are coming by, don’t you think they should be open?
  • Go to Home Depot to buy new flapper for toilet… check.
  • Go to Albertson’s to buy loads of Diet Soda and Lean Cuisines… check.
  • Spend the rest of the day watching Season One of X-Files, eating jellybeans and playing video games…. big ol’ check.

In 2002, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These hamsters promptly escaped from a maximum security habitrail to the Sunnyvale underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the H-Team.

*Cue Theme Music*

Ah, now thatsa relief!

I bought new shorts…. one waist size up… nice and loose so my ass doesn’t hurt as much.

Oh, and evidently, I’m a cold, dead fish.

Just went and saw Episode II, on the company’s tab. Hooray. Thought it was better than Episode I, but no better than any of the originals.

What’s more interesting is that I ran into yet another old Berkeley co-worker outside the movie, which makes two in as many days. Couldn’t talk long because my ride was walking away, though.

Ran into an old coworker / classmate back from my Residential Computing days in Berkeley at the comic book store today (although not my regular store, it was ‘s regular store). I only recognized her because she sort of looked familiar, but she was with her fiancé, whom I recognized from her webpage that I visited a while ago.

I don’t know if she remembered my name…

I need things to make me happy right now! Woo!

I just installed spamassassin on my Linux machine.

Since last night, two spam messages have appeared in my inbox, and thirty have been caught by spamassassin.

I am so in love with this program, I could plotz.

Oh those wacky… whoever they are.

I just got my third-party Drummania controller in the mail. Of course, I don’t actually get the game for two weeks, but the included warning sheet has provided me more entertainment than I would have thought possible. Please note that any misspellings aren’t my fault, they’re that way on the sheet. It’s seriously so bad, it’s funny. It’s so funny, it almost has to be made up.
Begin the bad English!
