    ! Keep in mind that his is currently being developed!<br /><br /> If you want to find me, listen for the phrase "I'll be superamalgamated!", then look for a rather dapper chap with black hair and dark brown eyes. If you are at the right place to find me, that is...<br /><br /> I am an Eagle scout of Troop 395. I got my rank of Eagle on 12/2/2009.<br /> <br /> I enjoy listening to jazz, classical, lounge, ambient, and some rock music, along with some soundtracks, like the one from the video game Halo and the soundtrack from the movie "The Incredibles". Some of my favorite musicians are:<br />Benny Goodman, Bill Evans, Brian Eno (Especially his album Music for Airports, and Music for Films), Carl Saunders, Clifford Brown, Count Basie, Dexter Gordon, John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Ed Thomas, Freddie Hubbard, Harry James, Henry Mancini, Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver, Jan Garbarek, Jean-Jacques Perrey, John Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Louie Armstrong, Lester Bowie, Marvin Stamm, Matt Wilson, McCoy Tyner, Michael Giacchino, Miles Davis, Paul Desmond, Phil Lenk, Rafael Mendez, Chick Corea, Roy Eldridge, Terence Blanchard, Terje Rypdal, Thelonious Monk, Tony Williams, the USAF Concert Band, Weather Report, Eberhard Weber, along with many others. How nice; the names are almost all in alphabetical order.<br /> Along with liking many musicians, I also play a few instruments. I play the piano, trumpet, trombone, marimba, xylophone, cowbell, vibraphone, bass drum, any percussion except for snare and tenor drums, and I want to learn how to play the clarinet, the oboe, and the bassoon. It would be fun to be able to play the bagpipes, too...<br /> Anyways, I play jazz piano in my school's jazz band. I should stop talking about playing jazz piano before I go on a rant about it...<br /> I play percussion in my school's band, marching and concert, and I am also in a rock band with friends from my church.<br /> I also write some music. Nothing much, though; I do more arranging of songs. Getting Sibelius or something better than Finale Notepad 2004 would be good.<br /><br /> Also, I like LEGO Bricks. If I didn't like them, I would not be typing this at this current time lapse. Out of all LEGO genres, I especially like Mars Mission and Bionicle.<br /><br /> I also like aeronautics. In particular, I like the World War II airplanes, e.g. the P-47 Thunderbolt, F4U Corsair, the British Spitfire, the Il-2 Sturmovik, and the British Fairey Firefly (The name of the Firefly is quite misleading).<br /><br /> I don't watch many movies, but there are a few that I like. I know that there are some that I like, but I can't remember what they are.<br /><br /> I also do some drawing. I'll try to post up a drawing that wouldn't embarrass me, but I'll do that later.<br /><br /> I also like Monty Python, despite the fact that I am an American. My favorite skits are: The Exploding Penguin sketch, Confuse-a-Cat, The Office Sketch, The Cheese Shop, D. P. Gumby: My Brain Hurts!, and many other skits.<br /><br /><br /> Now, for capricious information about my individuality:<br /><br /> I enjoy mathematical studies, and I am taking pre-calculus classes next semester. Speaking of school, I am part-time public schooled, part-time homeschooled.<br /><br /> On Occasion, I derive unmitigated amusement out of obfuscating amusement individuals with sesquipedalian banter. On occasion, not all the time.<br /><br /> I have actually flown an airplane before, I just didn't get to land it. And it was already airborne when I flew it.<br /><br /> I have also been in an ultralight airplane, similar to what can be found at this URL: http://www.learner.org/jnorth/images/graphics/c/crane_WesslingUltralight.jpg<br /><br /> My favorite mathematical equation is e^(i*pi).<br /><br /> One of my favorite geometry proofs is: "If an angle of one triangle is equal to an angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, then the triangles are similar."<br /><br /><br /> I am also interested in how governments work. Personally, my favorite form of government is an oligarchy. I do not know why, it just is.<br /><br /> Do you know where I can get a copy of The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, by Emmanuel Goldstein?
  1. Wow! I leave for two years and everything changes!

  2. Thanks for the advice! It'll be useful, I'm sure.

  3. Oh my gosh. I'm also 14 taking Precalculus classes. Only thing is you live on the other side of the country. My advice to you is to study your material a lot and if you are still on winter break, I advise to recap on Algebra 2. Just some advice and also, good luck.

  4. Personal photo image back up.

  5. Well, it is now. Wonder what happened to the actual image.

    Since you got it somewhat right, you win 15.675 internets.

  6. hmmm... is your Personal photo a blankwhite space with a red x in the corner? cause that's all I see

  7. Wait a second... You play the flute? That's cool. I play the trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, saxophone, oboe, clarinet, piano, and percussion. Just about every wind instrument (Plus a few extra...) except for the flute. There is such a thing as a double flat, it looks like Personally, I've never seen one in a piece of sheet music, but the next song I write will implement a few...
  8. Happy birthday in advance by about... 4 hours, in my time zone...

  9. That's a creepy personal photo you have got...

  10. Personally, I think you should maintain the name "Kraggh", or something with "Kraggh" in it.
  11. Can I join? Even though I don't know much about Adventurer?
  12. Wow. Where did you get those pieces?
  13. This reminds me of a radio drama I heard from early 1942 (the beginning of America's involvement in World war Two). Someone was going to buy a globe, and another person said "Well, you better hurry up if you want one with Japan on it."
  14. Wow. He must burn a lot of calories for no reason.
