You know, it was something I had never really thought about before. Was there a place on BZP I did not really post in? I generally avoid COT, and I spend most of my time in RPG, Artwork, and the Library, but it wasn't until I stumbled upon this poll that I realized there was one place where I don't believe I have ever posted. That would be the Marketplace.

I don't really trade or sell anything--I keep my sets and pieces for MOCing, and the few collectible rarities I have, I cherish. So this portion of the forum I just happened to stay out of, not from aversion, but from lack of pertinence. Funny, huh?

Oh, and by the way, I got assigned to a new forum today!

As you should know, fellow BZPower members, there's a great contest unfolding right now. The competition is fierce, and the polls should be swarming with voting members.

BBC? Of course not, I speak of the latest RPG Contest. Go vote now!


I Dislike Commercials

Life and Lessons Learned
I had this conversion but moments ago.

Me: hahahah hee
Me: so the Return of the King came on tv
Black Six: ok
Me: and I started watching it, then said to myself: "why bother watching the normal version interrupted with commercials when I can just pop in the commercial-free extended edition on dvd?"
Me: so I did so, and it just finished
Me: when I took the dvd out, the movie was still playing on tv
Me: now think about this
Me: the extended edition of return of the king has almost an hour more of footage, IIRC
Black Six: yep
Me: but there were so many commercials on the tv, I was able to play the entire extended edition between the first few and last two scenes on the broadcasted one
Black Six: that's a LOT of commercials
Me: that means there must have easily been over an hour of commercials
Me: anyway, I found that amusing
Black Six: I concur
Me: hm I should blog about it
Black Six: lol, go for it

Despite tribulations involving illness and difficulty is locating a parking spot, I had the awe-filling sight of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, with all their pyrotechnics, lasers and lights, glow-in-the-dark violins, and outrageously incredible music before me.

The show opened with a slightly curtailed presentation of their first album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories. Interposed between the narrator's crisp relating of the tale of a lone angel were such memorable TSO tunes as "A Mad Russian's Christmas" and their biggest hit, "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24." Expertly coordinated to the musics was a brilliant light and laser show that accentuated the symphonic sound in an exciting visual way.

After the narrator (who often played along with the band-members on an air guitar when he was not reciting his story) completed his tale, we were introduced to the members of the band. Following this short break the group erupted into song once more, blasting familiar compositions from The Lost Christmas Eve and my favorite TSO album, Beethoven's Last Night. Among these were the wildly entertaining "Wizards in Winter," "Christmas Nights in Blue," "A Last Illusion," and the electrically-charged rendition of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, "Requiem." The latter was accompanied by breathtaking jets of fire and other pyrotechnics and captured the power and majesty of the famous Fifth Symphony in a way only the Trans-Siberian Orchestra can.

One of the best parts of the three-hour show was a preview of the upcoming TSO album Night Castle. The band played their adaptation of "Carmina Burana" (the "O Fortuna" part, specifically) to much applause. Afterward there was a great keyboardist duel between two pianists which led into an explosive finale featuring a second performance of Sarajevo in an even more grandiose style.

If you are a fan of the Trans-Siberian Orchetsra, you must see them perform live.

Things That I Like

Yes, I actually made a new MOC. Unfortunately it's just a silly little hodge-podge of red and green pieces made for the contest. You can drop a post in the topic if you wish.


The Pianist Resurfaces

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra has instituted a contest encouraging fans to play one of their best songs, "Wizards in Winter," and make their own music video. Following the creation of this media, entrants must post it on a certain video-sharing web site and submit the url to the TSO.

The existence of the contest is, however, secondary in coolness to the fact that they've posted the sheet music for Wizards in Winter online in .pdf format! I've downloaded and printed out the piano music and and working on learning the tune--my skills are rusty though, so it will be a slow process. If I manage to learn how to play it satisfactorally prior to the expiration of the deadline, I may enter the contest.


An Addition To The Mcsmeagol Electronic Empire

Life and Lessons Learned

Yesterday evening I gained possession of a shiny new silver Motorola Q smartphone, as the contract expired for my much-inferior (and very annoying) previous cell phone.

How much am I enjoying this new communcations hub, you inquire? I'll provide a hint: My screen's backdrop is the cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, my ringtone is the Cantina Band theme from Star Wars, I've taken multiple photographs of my cat with the built-in camera, and I have enjoyed listening to songs by Van Halen, Queen, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and The Who that I have stored on the phone.

Even better than these entertaining additions is the presence of internet explorer on the phone--while I detest the use of that browser on a PC, I revel in the fact that it is installed on my phone, as it signifies that I can now access the internet from any given place. Prior to my trek to the stable this afternoon, I checked my BZ reports and browsed several sites on the Q. I hope that this expansion of my access to the internet, and therefore BZPower, means that I will be able to accomplish more modding than I have been in recent months.

Declarative or Editorial
There is Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Earth. None of those, however, is the coolest product of that world-controlling information corporation.

That, my friends, is Google Shakespeare.


Holy Hamlet, it's awesome!
