      This may be the greatest BBC clip of all time: Will Smith doing the "Prince of Bel Air" rap along with the Graham Norton audience. I love the English; I'm going back to London in 3 weeks, can't wait!

    • Cortana's Song: More Than Just a Voice

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      I finally figured out (sort of) how to work Final Cut and so I made the a video for my Cortana song "More Than Just a Voice". I sure hope they don't make Cortana completely bonkers as she goes rampant. She's my favorite pint-sized blue half-naked A.I. babe!

      I've posted the lyrics over at YouTube where the video is: Cortana's Song: More Than Just a Voice.
      Enjoy!

      PS: I've moved my TaiChiKnees video to the new site. The link www.TaiChiKnees.com will still get you there. Most of my songs are there somewhere to download for free should you want them.

      PPS: I have two new Halo-related songs in the works and OboeCrazy says she'll collaborate on the video of at least one, and I've got three of my son's classmates set up to come over to do vocals for the other. How fun!!!

    • Bob 3:11-16

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      And Lo, the lake people did roll on the ground and gnash their teeth with pain, as they had eaten too many strawberries, and they cursed Bob their Maker for not having given them larger stomachs, and Bob was displeased with his children and their ingratitude, and sent large fluffy cats to torment them by urinating on their throw rugs.

      And all the people of the land cried out to Bob, "How have we offended Thee?" for they had to dispose of all throw rugs and tear out all their silk carpeting, and the linoleum and wood laminate merchants of the south would not sell them affordable flooring, for Bob had hardened the merchants' hearts. And the hill people wept and prayed. And the burnt offerings and collectible plush dolls the hill people offered to Bob did not move Him, for He was annoyed by whining.

      And it came to pass that the hill people grew weary of their bare plywood and brought war upon the lake people, whom they rightly blamed for the plague of cats and also for not returning their leaf blowers. And the lake people were defeated by the forces of the hill people, for they were still stricken with indigestion.

      And Bob, seeing the misery of His children, softened his heart, and recalled the incontinent cats, and sent forth many sheep, from which the people could weave new wool carpeting. And He breathed upon the strawberry vines of the lake people, and shrank the fruit to a more reasonable size. And He called His messengers, and said unto them, "Bring forth tidings of portion control unto my children so that they may know satiety without heartburn."

      And the messengers formed a boy band, so that all the people would be ironically interested in their message, and went forth to spread Bob's Word. And in time the hill and lake people became one family, and begat many sons and daughters who honored their parents, although they spent too much time on their iPhones at family gatherings. And the people prospered.

      Here endeth the lesson.

    • You kids with your rock and roll

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      Okay I'm going to admit finally that the new Facebook-y format on this website completely baffles me. I follow 64 people and I have no idea what any of them are posting. I can only intermittently get to my news feed by randomly clicking links; I couldn't tell you how to do it. I only know what QuackJAG is doing because I see what he likes on YouTube, and OboeCrazy and I just e-mail each other. All other 62 people are a mystery to me.

      Also, I am overwhelmed by the forty-thousand RoosterTeeth YouTube videos that come out every day on my YouTube feed. Are they still doing Season 10? If so it is lost in the shuffle of Achievement Hunter, animated podcasts and that pissed off guy who screams at every game.

      I believe that this situation makes me officially old and "not cool". I was hoping for another 2 years of being cool, but no, it isn't to be. Is "cool" even a slang word anymore? SIGH.

      How do I make my homepage look old-style? Maybe that would help...

      ...now get off my lawn.

      I don't know how many folks here follow "The Guild" as it seems to me to be a bit more oriented to MMORPG gamers than FPS gamers, but I just watched Episode 12 of this season and I love that Zaboo's "Master Chiefs" bodyguards turn out to be girls... and that their manicures match their armor.

    • Nerds and Farmers

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      Concerning the test questions I posted last week, I also had an entire section of case studies where the patients were named Avery, Buck, Emile, Jun, Kat, John, Jorge and Dr. Halsey. (Halsey was a post-surgical patient who'd had a facelift).

      My son likes to quote Tastosis saying "There are only two types of people in this world: Nerds and Farmers." Although I've been a nerd most of my life, I would like to try a new career/life path as a "nurse farmer".

      It is taking me forever to make my new video. Remember the old days when your grandma could edit a movie with iMovie? That's what I used. This FInal Cut Express program is so time consuming OMG why do you have to render EVERYTHING? Maybe I should just edit with the Quicktime free player - because it would take less time I swear. In the meantime I am migrating my TaiChiKnees website to googlesites and that means I've had to post some videos on YouTube in order to do the embed. That's why I've been posting old stuff on YouTube. New videos to come soon I HOPE.

      I also got a new car. Okay, back to grading these papers. Just like a farmer.

    • Name that Patient

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      Here are two questions from the quiz I gave today to my class:

      _______1. Ashley Williams is a 23-year-old woman in your emergency room with a cut on her hand that you want to stitch up. You inject the area first with some “numbing medicine,” (a local anesthetic similar to Novocain), and within minutes the area you injected becomes red, itchy and swollen. This is most likely an example of:
      A. reversible antagonism.
      B. a therapeutic effect.
      C. an allergic reaction.
      D. an idiosyncratic reaction.

      15. Calculation (3 points). At 5 pm your patient, 28-year-old Jacob Taylor, accidentally receives five times his regular afternoon dose of medication (a total of 1000mg). There is a risk of arrhythmia until the blood level is down to 125mg. If we assume his blood level at 5pm on Tuesday was exactly 1000mg, and the drug has a half-life of 6 hours (t1/2 =6h), at what time and on what day is Mr. Taylor safe again? (show your work for partial credit)

      ...I had to cut the question about Garrus...

      So I am a huge Mac person, but I got a notice from Mac saying they are shutting down iWeb at the end of the month, so I have to move all my TaiChiKnees.com content to my own website. Do any of you have suggestions for a web hosting company that would let me post all my music and videos without bankrupting me?
      smiley1.gif

      Also, I finally saw the Halo 4 gameplay video from E3. OMG Cortana is so pretty! Also, scary monsters. Life is worth living again! I'm so excited!!!!

    • US Memorial Day - and the UNSC on BBC

      5 years ago

      Elnea

      Having family members in the armed forces, and having lost some to war, I used to think that it was extremely weird to mark Memorial Day by having a big party and a barbecue. However, these days it seems that Memorial Day is becoming a day that we celebrate our past AND present servicemen, and that's fantastic in my book.

      In memory of our fallen soldiers, airmen, marines, sailors, coast guard and of every American who gave his life for our country, and in gratitude to our veterans and those currently serving: Thank you. You are my heroes.

      smiley12.gif

      PS: This is probably old news in the Halo community, but I just saw the BBC report that the United Nations Space Command is taking over for the United Nations Security Council. I think they'll do a fantastic job!

      That's definitely an issue; I have no idea who's doing anything about providing relief/funds. Doctors Without Borders does a lot of work in Guatemala; I don't think they gear up for emergencies, though, it's more of a regular thing.

      Catholic Relief Services seem to be on this:

      Some more general info at ReliefWeb, but nothing useful for Americans looking to help. :(

      My brain, being so phantastical *patent pending*, still doesn't cope well with equating someone as cool as you with being a mom. It's like the two are separated by a barrier that refuses to acknowledge both states at once. Therefore I've had to extend your definition of you in my brain on a quantum basis so that they can exist as two separate states (you being so awesome, you being a mom) while being able to simultaneously exist. Like Schrodinger, but far less morbid and we don't have to stick you in a box and guess which one you are at the moment and contemplate whether you're one or the other and then you'd be bored since you'd be in the box all day wondering when in time when going to finally open the box so you can get a drink of water or some food.

      And this is why geeks don't write greeting cards. Or, this is why geeks should write greeting cards. Hope you had a good mother's day.

      I totally understand your pov with the film. I think the main heroes were written better than I expected and I enjoyed watching them more than I thought I would, so I didn't criticise them as much as I did the overall plot.

      I still think Princess Mononoke did a much better job with a similar storyline. There were more shades of grey and it made for a better movie (but still visually stunning).

      I get the whole wanting to meet single girls thing but...

      Don’t get me wrong, I want to meet single girls; but I think if I have a lot of girls who are friends of mine, when I meet a single girl I might understand what the hell she’s saying. Less guys and more girls would do that for me. That, and dick jokes stop being funny after a while. No they don’t.

      Besides, women are flighty bitches. Seriously... who wants to be friends with a girl? Screw a girl, sure, but be friends? They're all so petty and only care about unicorns and ribbons and dresses.

      Unicorns?

      Hey! And anyway, what am I, chopped liver? I'm a girl... wait... (*checks*) ... yes, I'm a female and I consider myself your friend. So shut up!

      I’ve got a lot of girls who are friends. I value every one of them. You especially for the help I received passing Adult Health 1 (they actually asked about drusen! Good thing we talked about it) I would have valued you even without that. I only wish you received text messages because I send my friend who receive text messages all sorts of things you'd find hilarious, insightful, or amusing.

      And I want every female friend I have to tell me all sorts of things – like how they hate woodwind players, for example – so I can know more about you crazy chicks.

      Actually, after your comment, I thought of 10 years ago when crazy parents were protesting Pokemon, calling it violent. Considering kids are apparently into ecstasy, erotic asphyxiation, swapping partners and sexting, making a run for the Thunder Badge or capturing a Ponyta doesn't seem so terrible, does it?

      And I wasn't implying you were being critical. I just wanted to let you know that I, technically an adult, also bought the game. But then again I watch Phineas and Ferb a few times a week, but that's because it's brilliant.

      It's not really grass but its like all those little leaflets that sprout around a well packed trail that start as almost moss like things they are so small and gradually grow into a shag rug then into a lawn and finally into knee high greenery. It's stunning. I wish I'd taken a picture on the walk I took recently in our local park. I'll have to go back and snag one sometime soon before it gets too tall. lol.
