This is wonderful. All of it. Thank you, oblongrobber!
A theme for kirstensdesk
kirstensdesk was one of the first tweeps I met on Twitter, and it was one of the oddities of crossed paths that we are weirdly much alike. We both love to write and create. We both are coffee fiends. And we have similar tastes in movies and music.
A couple of years ago, she and I formed a virtual creative-nudgery group with @puggpaw, a fellow creator with a day job, although these days, our real lives have stolen much time from our artistic endeavors.
Since I started on this theme meme, I’ve wanted to do one for Kirsten, but she posed a particular challenge. I envisioned a heavy, edgy sound — something I typically don’t create in FLStudio, primarily because guitar loops are a nightmare to manipulate. This morning, though, a bass line came together with some drums that seemed to fit the Kirsten ethos.
A few audio geek notes: I tackled many firsts in this short track. I used the Gross Beat plug-in for the first time to create the glitchy synth sound, and I created several drum patterns and fills with the FPC drum machine rather than relying on loops to give the track a more realistic feel. I fattened up the bass with some compression and also used the NewTone plug to manipulate some of the note lines on the bass loops.
Cheers, my friend.
I think this is the first web conference I’ve actually been on where the presenter AND topic are actually on point.
Well done, people!
On a live-stream web conference. These things are as usually dull as dirt. But this one isn’t that bad.
"Go fetch buddy! Oh, are you okay…?"
Oh dear God…

When a baby is naked, this will happen 100% of the time.
cat beds ;w; so cute
This makes me smile. Good morning, Tumblr.
For an ongoing series entitled Cardboard People, Singapore-based artist Anton Tang takes amazing photos using Revoltech Danboard figures as his subjects. The beautifully shot scenes range from whimsical and cute to surprisingly heartwarming. These little toy people have been so carefully staged and posed that you soon find yourself believe they’re really alive.
Best. Insult. Ever. And I need to remember to use it more.
(BTW, it’s a line from THE GREAT RACE.)
