I have no idea why the hell this song has been going through my head all morning but in it’s defense, it’s hard not to cheer up when I hear it!
Apparently people are saying Katy Perry’s Roar is a rip off of this song. Although the first twenty seconds sound kinda familiar, I’m not completely convinced.
What I can tell you is that I apparently need to listen to more Slayer!!
Loving the Barenaked Ladies song on the Rooster Teeth channel the guys at the SourceFed website were kind enough to point out.
All together now “The odds are that we will probably be all right!” :D
Hello! I thought I’d give you a quick update on what I’ve been looking at recently so you can have a laugh at how terribly its all going!
I’ve started work on what should be the first in a number of wood box projects. Eventually the goal is to build my own enclosures for a couple of electronics projects I’ve got in mind.
This first one however is just a bit of fun. It already looks terrible but it does fit together. It’ll look great as long as you don’t look directly at it!
I’ll post some images up once I’ve got something worth looking at.
As an aside, I’d like to add that getting the wood cut by the guys in B&Q does sacrifice accuracy. They did their best but the saw they have is better at roughing out. All the panels making the box are different sizes. Like I said, this is a functional bit of storage thrown together for fun, the next projects should have a lot more finesse!
Well, I took the week off this week to enjoy the weather and get a year older. Apart from the hay fever and constant fear of death by sunlight, it’s been a great week so far.
As I’m sure you’ve already guessed, I’ve been hiding in the shade the whole time but it looks lovely out there!
My mission this week (aside from getting older) has been to read a lot and try to get some new knowledge into this old brain. Its been going surprisingly well considering the heat and proximity of my movie collection.
Every time I close my eyes now, I see formulas though. That’s a good thing right?!?
Since living in my old flat and enjoying the wonderful power cuts it used to serve up periodically, I’ve come to appreciate the wonder that is the pocket-sized torch and candle light reading. Her majesty is always chuckling about my obsession with checking out portable lighting whenever we go to hardware or DIY places. I always insist it’s for camping trips so we can light our tent but I know she suspects it’s the power cut preparation thing.
She’s right, I just don’t want to admit it!
As you may or may not know, I’ve been trying with some very minor successes to teach myself electronics. I’m still wrapping my head around the maths but I’m trying! As an excercise to practice soldering, I grabbed a few parts I had lying around and made, you guessed it, a torch! Have a look:
It’s a little basic I know but when I presented it to Her Majesty, being the practical kind of girl she is, she loved it. Turns out she loved that is was hand made badly in about 5 minutes by her geek!
If you’d like a torch of such wonderful (or better) quality, go have a go with a bit of stripboard, a superbright 10mm LED, a battery holder and a push button. Total cost for project: About £1.50 in spare parts. Bargain… AND you get to fiddle about trying to solder it correctly. What more could you want?
