|12:13 am - How's my driving?|
I hate to have to put this here, but it seems that one can't allow anonymous comments on one entry and only registered user comments on another entry in the same journal anymore.
Anyway, since I have enough of a sample to judge by out there by now, I figure it's about time to put up the obligatory LJRP concrit post. You know the drill -- what I'm doing well, what you didn't understand my reasoning for, and anything else that might help me play my canon characters better. In the interests of warding off any remnants of the old rotten peanut gallery, though, I'll have to assume you followed a link indicating who they are rather than clarifying for you here.
Note that I'm more likely to respond positively to criticism in question form, and that all comments are screened (though you can ask within your comment for me to unscreen it). -- Pteryx

|04:16 pm - I hope I don't regret this...|
Well, at least my computer didn't die in the middle of the mass defriend this time.
( WTF?! What are YOU doing back here?! We drove you out years ago, damn it!Collapse )

|01:22 am - The right to gloat mildly, again|
No, I didn't win another contest, but I am happy! Basically, I discovered a MIDI station, which to my mind is cool in itself. What's cooler, though, is that I decided to offer some of my own music. The maintainer was interested, so I tossed him six character themes I've written. And he posted them! Even said which one he likes best (Krysta Somo's theme)! :)
I'm definitely sending him some more of my music when I can. Even discounting the exposure aspect, it's great fun to actually hear my midis as rendered by four different synths. :)

|10:59 pm - The return of Senseir syndrome|
I know I don't use this much anymore; that's mainly because my channel is a better place to get support and comfort. The people who normally respond here say negative or contrary things.
Right now, though, I'm pissed off enough that I want to shout at the world.
If I give you a bunch of criticism, I'm going to be grateful for any change you might make in accordance with it and thank you for it. DO NOT SMACK ME UPSIDE THE HEAD FOR SHOWING GRATITUDE OR GIVING YOU A COMPLIMENT, MORON!
If this GM actually does have Senseir syndrome I'm quitting that play-by-post.

|06:44 pm - Road trip!|
The tickets are bought for both the bus and the concert, my room's almost clean enough for temporary guest use, I've posted notice a week in advance in the play-by-post games I'm in and the one I'm running, and I'm already starting to pack my bags, so it's probably about time I posted something about it here. Basically, from the 16th through the 22nd, I'll be out of town on account of my going on a trip. I can barely afford it, but it'll be worth it... because I'll be meeting a few of my longest-standing friends in Chicago and spending a day with them. :)
First I take a few busses to get to Akron, OH. Once there, I'll be shown around by hiromasaki and a few of his friends (including Drew, who I'm aquainted with), then shower and sleep. The next day, we drive down to Chicago, where we'll meet eladria (yeah, we're friends again and have been for a few months) and karinu at least. I'd hoped more of us could make it, but just having four of my channel's regulars in one place is something. (It was going to be five, but the Homeland Security Department, in its infinite wisdom, decided that vormav was a national security risk for some ungodly readon -- which, I'm sure, they think is supremely godly, but I digress.) karinu and I will most likely be staying at a hotel together both the night before the concert and the night after, since the other accomodations available are already crowded. In between, there'll not only be the concert but time for us to look around the city a bit -- certainly not time enough for the grand tour, but enough so there's more quality time spent with everyone. After the second night there comes the drive back to Akron, more time with Chad and Drew and another night in bed, then the busses home.
Finally, when I get back, we'll have a new border terrier puppy. :)

I wonder what ever became of Max C. Strini, aka dar4. I'd like to ask him a few questions.

|10:42 pm - Aspects of Fire|
Fire burns. This is the very nature of its being -- when an object ceases burning, the fire is not sleeping, but dead. And so it is with the Exalted of Fire. Their hearts burn with a passion few others will match. To the Children of Hesiesh, passion is everything, and one who no longer feels or believes is no longer alive at all.

|11:37 pm - Overdone|
Final Fantasy crossovers -- especially those of the "When Worlds Collide!!!" variety, with "It's all one continuity, I'll show you!" running a close second -- are now officially on my Overdone List. Kingdom Hearts is forgiveable, as are any multiverse-spanning games that just happen to include FF worlds as options rather than using them exclusively... but if I see one more example of stitching together seperate realities sharing nothing other than the same brand name for no better reason than, at best, to broaden a "creative" work's appeal, I think I'm going to need something to treat nausea and headache.
