So my roommate and I were in web house talking about making some internet. And we noticed how the internet is what gives a web-user his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together. Then a shivering person walked in the door and said, "I don't know about this weather! I'm clicking the dislike button." We turned to each other, "The web is strong in this one," I said. My mentor once said, "The internet should be used for learning and defense only... never attack!" So be sure you don't turn to the dark side of the internet (aka 4chan).
So I was just looking at Google street view to give you that link to Web House. Did you know you can turn on 3D mode? And then I found out that you can also do 3D mode on youtube! I've been telling people this, and they're like, "you've been able to do that for a long time". The thing is, they don't work all that well. I mean, maybe they do with an actual 3d monitor, but the red/blue glasses are just a little too distracting for me. Also, 3d youtube made my eyes feel like they were going to implode.
So I've been telling you a bit about the fall colors and stuff, but I've been lazy about photos this term. So I thought I'd show you some scenes from this term.
The view of the water tower behind the rec. The clouds were just amazing that day, and the light was sweeping beautifully across the treetops.
This is the view outside of my dorm, Watson. The sky was brilliantly pink (one of my favorite colors) and the trees made a nice silhouette.
You may have noticed recently that my blog is less story driven and more sort of random as I go along. When I first started out, everything was an adventure (quite literally, I numbered everything I wrote as adventures. Look at my first 10 or so posts). In some ways I kind of miss having such a driving sense of newness to write about. On the other hand, maybe I'm just getting lazier and not bringing my camera to things. On the third hand, maybe it's just a natural evolution that the blog needs to go through before it becomes a man.
It's really odd to think about change in our day and age. Back in the old days (like, the nineties), the past was more relegated to the past and the present was the present. Every once in a while you would break out the photo albums and reminisce, but those were special occasions. With the rise of the internet, everything became recorded and instantly retrievable. Like look at this webcomic, Questionable Content. At the time of writing, there are 2040 total strips written. One click will get you to the very first one. And boy, is there a difference. J. Jacques has grown immensely in the 7 or 8 years he's been doing it, and it's a fascinating progression to watch. Compare this to something like Peanuts. The first ones were different, yes, but there's no one-click way of comparing them. Rather, finding some early Peanuts strips is more like looking through an old photo album. And with Facebook and Gmail, you can immediately take yourself back to moments from years ago, see what you thought and said back then. See how you presented yourself to the world. It's really strange. I don't know if it makes it harder or easier to change.
This is so weird, I really though I posted this last week. Also, I thought I added a picture of the frisbee I did which I will now add.
I made this for the class of 2015's New Student Week. They printed it in shiny shiny blue! So shiny!
