Excuse me while I just Glitch Mob for the next few weeks.

The Glitch Mob

Posted by Bfahome , Mar 12 2014 · 109 views
The Glitch Mob
So last night was the first show of their new tour circuit, and it was in Maine, so naturally I had to go.
 
Was accompanied by my best friend, my roommate, and my roommate's friend.
 
We were also first in line because we showed up two hours before the doors opened.  We ended up in the first row of seats, which is about midway back because there's a lot of standing-room floor space at the front.
 
I got some video!
 

 
That's my voice freaking out over the awesome setup at the beginning.  My camera's bad so you can't see it, but each of the three had their own set of four Lemur pads plus other controllers at their station.  And then giant LED MIDI conga drums.  And whatever the heck you'd call those massive LED MIDI drums behind them.  It's different then the setup I'd seen them use before in videos, and it's amazing.  The patterns on the back screen were synched with the ones on the drums!  It was really cool!
 
In addition to stuff from their new album, they played some songs from Drink The Sea (Animus Vox, We Swarm, Drive It like You Stole It, Fortune Days), Warrior Concerto and We Can Make The World Stop from the WCMTWS EP, and their remix of Derezzed.
 
Downsides were that it was very loud, and while I could definitely handle it sometimes the songs would drown themselves out which is a shame because I really like most of them.  Other downside was that it only lasted about two hours, while the two opening acts (Penthouse Penthouse and Ana Sia) lasted an hour and a half between them and weren't nearly as good.
 
Also I'm really sore from all the air-drumming I did.

To all of my friends on here

Posted by Bfahome , Mar 11 2014 · 214 views

I'm typing this a few days before the set publish date, because that day I'll be busy, but I feel like it would be a good time to take a moment and look back.  No, this is not me announcing my departure or anything like that, it's just something I really wanted to take the time to say.
 
I've met and talked to a lot of people online over the years, and a good deal of that activity has been centered around BZPower and the BIONICLE fandom.  I've had other interests, of course, but those have come and gone, and I've never invested as much in anything as I have in my LEGO hobby and the community around it.
 
I didn't start on BZP.  I didn't have my own email address (or any at all) until the beginning of 2008, so I started on wikis like BIONICLEsector01.  I had a good run on there and made some friends.  Cholie, Exo Malakai, Varaka, The Alchemyst/PoI, Bioran, Lihyahm, and all the rest of those people I can't quite remember because it's been half a decade.  It was a great time.
 
But then I joined BZPower, and I slowly lost interest in the chronicling and got more into the discussing.  Here I met others who shared my interests, or shared some interests with people who shared some of my interests, or just happened to be in the same AIM group chat I was in.  Really, the people I met through "bzplol" were my friends for the first couple of years here.  Teebert, Wrack, Necro, Ran/DX, Taka-Tahu-Nuva, Arch-Angel, Kopakalaka, Lluvio, Disky, and others (I feel really bad that I can't remember everyone).  I had so much fun talking about Code Lyoko or politics or whatever else on the spectrum came up.  I really miss it a lot.
 
A lot of you (yes, you, all the people I've just listed, and all the ones I've forgotten) aren't around BZPower anymore, and haven't been for a while.  We haven't talked for years, I don't know how to contact you, you've probably changed in that time (and so have I), and you may want nothing to do with me anymore.
 
However, I have something to say to you.
 
Thank you.
 
Middle school and high school are usually marked by obnoxious angst and social awkwardness.  But they're also a time when you're really becoming who you will be in life.  It's a lie to say that nothing else has affected me the way this community has.  I've had pretty major events in my life that will no doubt define me forever.  But to say that you've had no effect on me would be as equally wrong.
 
I feel confident, however, in saying that I wouldn't be who I am or where I am today had I not met you all.  You were people I could talk to about my interests, people I could stay up until 2 or 3 AM chatting with about whatever came up, people who were there and put up with me.  Those moments were worth falling asleep in school for.  I may have never seen some of your faces or heard some of your voices or even may never have known some of you as anything but a screen name, but you were willing to give me a chance.
 
So to you, the people who in many ways welcomed me to the internet, I say thank you.
 
 
Thank you for everything.

Stock audio

Posted by Bfahome , Mar 08 2014 · 81 views


 
At about 14:40 as it pans to Aelita.
 
For me it's always kind of disappointing to hear sounds that I recognize from other media (in this case, The BIONICLE Music from 2001) because it means one if not both of the parties involved just used existing audio.
 
Also hi Ghost Channel, nice to see you again.  I didn't need to go to sleep anyway.

Hey, listen!

Hey, listen! This was that silly BBCC entry I was talking about.  Decided against entering it because I've already made something better.
 
(It's awful not having a decent camera anymore.)

I don't know whether to wait and build something meaningful that might actually have a chance or post the thing I just built five minutes ago because it's kind of funny and I want to post it before anyone else posts something like it.
 
(No it's not like a stocking spider or anything, but it also doesn't have that many parts and no doubt it'll be crushed by other people's stuff.)

"Back, you foul creature!  One more step, and I'll—"
 
 
 
I think this was my favorite part of the movies.
