Oops, Sorry 'bout That

Sorry for the lack of posting... hopefully this won't happen very often.

Main reasons for this include (or will be):

- Busy Life
- Bad Memory
- Vacation
- Lack of Content

On the upside... it was my birthday yesterday! Sadly, adding a year to my age isn't going to do much, for now. It will by the end of next month probably. Seems that procrastination is making these "big" changes happen slower than they do for most people.

Oh, and I'm cleared by my doctor to do Cross Country... for the time being. Have to go get a test done to check something that has been worrying me, and if the results are not good he'll take that clearance back. Should have the test done sometime next week if things work out as they should and the results of it will be out soon after it.

Now to prepare for my Wizard101 in-game Belated Blogaversary Party for The Conjurers Inn tomorrow night. (info here if you're interested)

Silent House

Well, I apologize for being a day late, Tyler has the worst memory known to mankind.

"How are you holding up? Because I'm a potato." This is a quote from portal 2, which I have been watching many videos of lately. Not sure why I'm telling you all about this, but it was kinda funny.

..... Do you hear that silence? It's the sound of my foreign exchange student not being here. Which is quiet. He left last week after living in my house for ten months, in my brother's room (who is in Florida for two years being awesome). He was the noisiest person I have ever met. One could tell where he was at all times because he could never be quiet, whether he was whistling or 'singing silently' to himself, he was making a great deal of noise. I can try stomping down the stairs as loud as possible and not make as much noise as he did.

Another thing he did was stop at every single mirror he saw so that he could vainly check his hair. Even if he had checked it moments ago, he would do it again for just as long. I had to move into our half bathroom downstairs because he would take half an hour in the bathroom every morning.

I hope I don't sound like I've been complaining, but I am just quite glad that he is gone now.

Music is Amazing

Music can do so much. When you listen to it, the mood of the music can become your mood.

The best movies and games always have great background music that you listen to as you run around the world. You may think the fighting is exciting, but when you hear the battle music start you get even more into it.

Sorry that this is going to be a short post... still working on figuring out what to do... and it's really unorganized. (oh well)

But to continue with the music, here is a list of musicians I have recently been listening to that are amazing. (They are not linked)

- Approaching Nirvana
- Lindsey Stirling (Violin)
- The Piano Guys (Piano and Cello)
- Peter Hollens (A Capella)

You can find them all on YouTube. (Which you should do right now and listen to them).

The last thing is that YOU can create music. Whether you can sing well or you play an instrument (of any type), you can make it. When you do this, as long as you're enjoying it, you can, in part, feel the music more than when you just are listening. You can make it sound however you like. And if you don't like to make it, you can still listen to others!

Have a great week,
- Cameron

P.s. Tyler... you knew there was a black widow hiding in your basement and then you invited me over to play video games!? I could have died! :O

Update and Ranting about the Dentist

It's Tyler again, and I've decided that I will post regularly on Saturdays. That means I only get to confound you all once a week. Anyways, I will start every post will a something random and what I have to say about it, then I will continue with the post on a more or less single subject. So here we go.

Seeing a spider isn't a problem. It becomes a problem when it disappears. (Read this somewhere, not sure where, though). I read this just after finding what I believe to be a black widow in my basement. I never killed the spider, and I'm now extremely paranoid about going into my basement.

Today, I'm going to rant about the dentist. Very many rant-worthy things happen at the dentist, even at a routine cleaning. First, they lay a heavy bib type thing on you so they can blast dangerous wavelengths at your face to check for cavities. They will walk out of the room to protect themselves, while leaving you to the full devastation of the x-rays. After that, they stick their fingers in your face and start shoving sharp metal objects around. As I am sure you all know, this can be very annoying. You have to hold your mouth open and avoid swallowing and screwing it all up. The best way to do this is to time it right when there are no hands or objects in your mouth. Sometimes, the dentist appears to test how strong your will power is and stay in your mouth until you swallow. And we never know just how wide they are grinning about your discomfort due to the bright light in your eyes. But of course you always get free stuff at the end. As if floss makes is adequate compensation.

When I recently went, I got my wisdom teeth looked at. They are coming along quite slowly up top, but the bottom is a different story. One side is perfectly fine, even great. On the other side, the tooth is completely sideways, and pointing down a bit. It has no roots yet, but once those start to develop.... Ouch does not adequately describe. So I get to go to an oral surgeon to get the bottom two removed within a month or it starts to be a big problem. My dentist has already rated the difficulty of removing the tooth a nine of ten (ten being the hardest). But the top teeth aren't ready to be removed yet. That means I get to go through the process of having wisdom teeth removed a second time in a few years. Joy.

That's all for now, but next week I will talk about what great things I've done after the departure of my foreign exchange student. I will probably have to explain that I had one in the first place, but whatever.

Until next time,

A Jumble Update #1

Just want to give you all a heads up on what we're working on.

We're going to try and set up a schedule of sorts.  For instance, you can expect my posts to be up on Fridays. This will make it easier both on us... and on the readers so that they won't be thinking, "Hmm, wonder when they're going to post." After a little while of doing this we'll see how it works and how we can improve it.

I'm also going to be working on a new thing... hopefully the first one will be ready in a couple weeks. There are a few things that I don't have yet. Also, I can't decide whether I'm going to need some other people to help me out or not. I'll update you all on it next week...

Until then,

- Cameron

The Joining of Tyler

Ah, Cameron. I hope you know I do this merely because I have nothing better to do with my life. Or something. That's really just my way of justifying why I am doing this. And just so that we all know, if Cameron dies from cross-country, I will be laughing the entire time.

Anyways, I am Tyler and I have an eccentric friend who wants me to blog with him when I am sure no one else really cares. But the fact that I have no mental sanity has lead me to agree to his quest. If you do not believe me that I am crazy, I will tell you that I spent an hour playing frisbee with myself yesterday. It was fun. I also run just for the enjoyment of it. For some strange reason, non-runners find this a sign of insanity. I'm not sure why.

So I suppose that I will bore you with the random things I do in the future.Farewell -Tyler
