I'm on a musical roll  
I found someone that has an N. northiana. It's the guy I've been buying from on Ebay. He just got some in. This is my first time placing a plant order with a foreign country. Here's hoping it will make it ok. I wish I could have ordered more but that's all I could aford and that's it for a long time unfortunately. I need to rebuild my savings and it's too bad because there still are so many cool plants I want to get before other people snag them up. Sigh. I hope this one doesn't die on the trip over here. I also hope it doesn't take too long. My merrilliana is doing ok. I haven't noticed any change but it hasn't gotten worse so that's good too.

I love this music streak I'm on. Got another video up of Amon Amarth. This is Vaygras of Miklagraad. It's one of my top three favorite songs. I'm hoping to learn most of the ones off this album. Used a new technique too that Chris helped me with. Watch for the cool part where I go an octave back and forth from D to D. My hand looks like a little bell and is very rigid. That was fun to play but hard to nail right. I do it twice.

Here's something wierd, good and annoying all at the same time. My music account there got an upgrade to be able to upload videos beyond 15 minutes. Ok that's cool but I doubt I need that feature. And why not on my main account or better yet to my INTJ account where I talk a lot and could use the time so I don't have to break things into parts. I looked up why and it's just random for people that haven't had a copyright infringement. I find it funny I got that on a music account where it could be a problem. It's really stupid and makes no sense how with give it out. I've also heard you can lose it simply for deleting one of your own videos. WTF?

I've been watching Chris play Mass Effect 2 again. He likes to revisit games he's played right before the sequel comes out. We're very different that way as once I've played I'm pretty much done with it and have all the dialog I saw memorized. But I love Mass Effect. The story, the look, and the male versions of commande Shepherd are always very handsome. It almost makes me want to play again but I'm satisfied watching. Although there is a download he just got that I don't have. I will play that at least. It will be cool to see Owen again.

I love your t-shirt in the video! Nice fingerwork too. I love making moves on the guitar like that.
I got the upgrade for 15 minutes as well. Interesting since I have music videos on there with actual songs in the background as well as some old TV shows no one really cares about anymore. I've seen stuff on YouTube that lasts over an hour!

Thanks. Yeah, I'm going to try to wear more interesting shirts when I upload videos. I have a few but don't wear them because I like shirts that are loose around the collar, show my two collar bones, or I don't wear them.

It's nice the raised it to 15 for everyone. It used to be 10 which wasn't enough. But now they're just randomly going around giving people no limit. I wish my INTJ account had gotten it instead of my music one. I doubt I'll ever cover any 15 minute pieces. The only thing would be if I ever play everything I know back to back like a concert. But that's very unlikely.

Fantastic job on the vid'! Soon you can make a whole covers album. hehe

Glad you are entertained by me playing Mass effect 2. I get to show you the other choices you could have made.

Des: Gamingthagirion on April 14th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's part of the goal actually. Except for one song I'd love to learn all the songs from Twilight of the Thunder God.

Yeah, I never tire of that game. Yes it's neat to see new outcomes and dialog.

I haven't tried to upload anything to YouTube recently, but I'll probably never get close to the 15 minute limit anyway. Now that we have upgraded internet I should probably take some videos.

My brother got Mass Effect 2 and is going to play it. He's sworn off ever making male main characters again after playing Dragon Age 2 with a male character and having male NPC's hit on him because of a sub plot. I can't memorize dialog after only seeing/hearing it once, but I think that is because when I watch my brother play games, he blows through it so fast that I don't have time to read it. I like playing games multiple times, because I always notice more things the second time around that I didn't notice the first time around. Same with books and movies.

Who knows may-be they randomly chose you for no time limit.

Well let him know there's no gay crap in this game thank goodness. There almost was if you chose a female but she said she doesn't do that which made Chris and I cheer. Woo hoo! It's just an awesome game. Well the nice thing about this game is it's spoke and has dialog. I uploaded a video of some of the footage from the final mission. I you want to check it out it's here

You can always pause it if it goes too fast.

What I like about this game is all the choices you can make change outcomes and conversations. Not just picking good, neutral or bad. But who you bring can change things if your team mates have a personal grudge with whom you're speaking. I always try to pick team mates that I think will have neat reactions to the places I go. I love being a bad guy so I get to see stuff I missed since Chris is taking the paragon road where as I took the renegade.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that when it comes to movies and books that I really enjoyed I do watch or read them again over and over. Certain comedies like The Three Stooges I sometimes catch stuff I totally missed the first few times.

Sounded great, and yeah, that new technique was neat to see in action. Cool shirt there, too.

And yeah, I don't know what the frell is up with their decision-making with regards to giving out and taking away account upgrades. The idea of getting an upgrade taken away for deleting one of your own videos is especially absurd.

Thanks. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Hehe, yeah I figured I'd start wearing some more interesting stuff just for these videos.

Yeah it's really dumb how they do it and you can so easily lose it.

Boy, that low note was great! It's wonderful, a beautiful innocent faced girl like you turning out such bad-ass music :) I watched specially for your octave jump from D to D. You did it very well. Who cares of your hand is bell shaped? Maybe it's supposed to be :)

I liked your t-shirt and noticed too, your peeps lined up in a row in the background :)
Des: Black coffee Black Metalthagirion on April 15th, 2011 12:14 pm (UTC)
I love the sound of this guitar. This one is also in standard tuning. The next one I put up will be downtuned just on B.

It's wonderful, a beautiful innocent faced girl like you turning out such bad-ass music :)

Heheh, yeah I know. I'm very aware that I just don't look the part and though I like the look of metal and I like the color black I rarely even dress the part. Nor do I sound like it. I was calling around yesterday looking into lessons and when I told the guy on the phone I wanted metal lessons he laughed. I expected as much because I know I don't sound like it at all. It amuses me really because I love the shock when people find out.

Thanks. That part was fun and tricky to play. Oh, when I said my hand was bell shaped it wasn't a put down. I will rarely ever put myself down. My ego's too big for that. I'll only do that if I make a really bad mistake and then I own up to it. And that also rarely happens. Nope, I love the shape of my hands. No one else has them like I do.

Thanks. I'm a JP fan all the way. YES! You're the first to notice them. I put them there on purpose. It's just part of who I am. My outer light and inner darkness that I mentioned a while back. This is why I confuse people.

EDITED for one spelling error.

That's funny about YouTube randomly granting you the upgrade. I'm guessing because you're only posting covers of songs, you're safe from the copyright thing.

I hope your plant gets to you safely. You're building up a nice collection of those. That's great you've been able to get those rare plants!
Desthagirion on April 15th, 2011 01:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah it's really weird. What's funny is that they put the copyright info on some of the songs and send you a little message saying I don't have to do anything. None of it makes any sense.

Thanks. I'm annoyed right now, happens to all buyers, that another company I shop with JUST got one in here in the united states for less and of course shipping would have been less. ARG! Just when I'm broke and there are so many I wish I could buy. Typical. Everyone's like "Get it while you can because they're hard to find." And this wasn't even on the vendor sites. I don't fall for that. This is from other growers so I believed it. "Been searching for years and still can't find one." That's what got me. Well at least I will have it. Yeah, I can't wait to actually start getting my plants in. My main order is still on preorder. They've slowly been taking the plants off as they arrive, but of course none of mine are off the list yet and will probably be last.
