The first thing that came to mind were the Red Flag stories of “going downtown”, where the populace was SAMs and other aerial threats. That’s exactly what came to mind when I saw this going into New York; this was the first time seeing the big city on a GPS, so it was very enlightening to say the least. If anything, it made me more excited.

Again and again, I hit milestone with my iPhone. While I have taken pictures of my food before, it wasn’t really a thing in my mind till I had reread a portion of Margaret Mason’s No One Cares What You Had for Lunch. Yes, nobody cares, but she said to show rather than blog “Oh, I had fries for dinner.” This was more as a test photo if anything, but it would be the first of many as I slowly became comfortable taking pictures of my food.

 

Here, I was pretty sure this got taken because the Reeds non-alcoholic ginger brew looked like real beer, especially in the glass. Hmm.

Before I left home this evening, I saw how the lighting was hitting against my Sheena figure. It looked real nice, and also figured out I’d test the camera out on the iPhone. Color me surprised, it exceeds that of the HP717 I’ve been using for so many years.

 

Well, she has the entire desk to herself this Memorial Weekend. Maybe she’ll poke at Mass Effect behind her. Now if she could do other stuff in the meantime that’d be useful.

This screenshot off my iPhone pretty much summed up my night life when at ETSU; listening to Touhou doujin music, chatting in online friends from deviantART from Skype, and up at the middle of the night working on something. As you can tell, I was a pretty big fan of Yukari at the time.

Just some messing around with MMD after getting hooked on the “Quantum of Solace” 007 movie. Obviously Aya is our aspiring James Bond in this scenario with Yukari being the sidekick. Wasn’t able to grab a proper screenshot at the time, but still enjoyed the setup.

When I was attending Japanese class, someone had drawn this “Hurr Durr” meme on the board. Nobody believed me when I told them that someone had drawn this on one of the boards, so I took it upon myself to snap this picture to share with them via text. Good thing I did, because it’s partially historic; this was one of the few instances of ETSU showing its embrace of memes for the brief period it existed.

So during our 2nd to last project turn-in, one of my classmates Victoria Harrell was quite bored while we were waiting for the teacher to check our work. This was a result of that; she took cookies she was eating and put them on her bag as if it was a “face”. I supposed the “mouth” are the bag folds on the bottom.

Decided to poke around with the Cintiq tablets in my classroom today. This was the result! I LOVE these things.

 

So I had a concept of what I was going to do for my Vector project, so I had to spend some time sketching out some stuff. I decided to do a vector of a spaceship flaming through space; realizing how spot on the tablets were, I decided to give doodle drawings a shot.

 

The result was a Sheena, Yukari and Ling Ling all going googly eyes at the pretty spaceship. Hence the name of the post, which roughly translates to “Ooooh, a beautiful space battleship!”
