Update Part Ducks

Nov. 3rd, 2007 | 11:33 pm

God, I haven't written in forever. (Sidenote: I've noticed in real life I keep saying "gods". And I don't even watch Battlestar anymore). However, it started today. This morning featured my first "last" at UVA. This morning was the last time I'll scramble a home football game with the Banned. It's weird because I didn't even realize until someone said anything. After all, it's still first semester, and we have another home game (Tech), but no one will be in town.

So there's that. Last scrambling until Homecoming. Wow, this is getting me kinda emotional.

Beach Week and Meme

May. 12th, 2007 | 11:15 pm

First, from childofmetis
I need to be thinking positive things, so!

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

Reposting it is optional.

Also, I will be at the beach until next Saturday. E-mail access is spotty, IM access is almost definitely a no.

See you all on the flipside.

Getting Name-Dropped is Fun

May. 11th, 2007 | 01:30 am

"If you do want some reading on the topic, I did answer an Ask Wizards pertaining to it, and Brian David-Marshall's column that is running alongside mine today talks about Legacy and the impact of Flash (and I suspect my name appears in it once or twice). The best summary of the issue from both the policy and player perspective, however, has to be Kevin Binswanger's article "Unlocking Legacy – Flash" that appeared on the StarCityGames website earlier this week. I spend far too much time reading Magic articles on the 'net, and it is gems like Kevin's that make me feel like that time is well spent."

That quote is from Aaron Forsythe, Magic the Gathering R&D Director, over at MagicTheGathering.com. It's just exciting, because that kind of recognition is a huge deal. (The comment ran in his May 11th weekly column).

I hurt, but in a good way. I'm glad to start exercising again.

Anyone wanna swim?

Why are physics TAs sadists? They've done the "Who are you, what's your name/major" shpiel and know that no one in the room are physics majors. You're preaching to a room full of engineers and you're all "theoretical physics" this and "cylindrical coordinates" that. CS TAs just reinforce the material; they don't reteach CS 101 in PERL. So why are Physics TAs evil?

Don't You Know Who I Am?

I like crawling into small places.

I am so incredibly tempted to fill this out. I'm just afraid of them rejecting the concept.

Anyone Listen to Israeli Hip-Hop

Feb. 15th, 2007 | 02:23 pm

At the behest of Margaret, I was researching Alona Tal who plays the nice girl 09er Meg Manning on UPN/CW's Veronica Mars. Before coming to the US and landing the VM gig, she was a famous TV star in Israel, where she was born and raised. Both there and here she experimented with Hip-Hop, with an Israel Hip-Hop artist Subliminal, and here she recorded a track with Wyclef Jean. You can here the song here but Alona doesn't appear in the video.

Her line:
Bo, Habibbi, Nishtage’a [Hebrew. English: ‘Come on, my friend/man, let’s get crazy’]

Still working on tracking down the Israeli tracks. Anyone listen to Subliminal that can help me out?

For some reason, I feel like I should be giggling hysterically.
