I have started a new blog called Media Consumption Log. I will post my comments (for they are often too short and inane for me to consider them “reviews”) on the media I consume over there. My comments on films I’ve watched will also appear over there. I wanted to keep a log of my [...]
The web version of my automatic Melody Generator is now up at melodygenerator.com. I consider it still in “beta.” I’ve spent the last few days creating and finalizing the site’s design in a short burst of obsession. If you’re a bored musician looking to grow your collection of melodies, check it out!
I finally created an account on Goodreads not long ago, so if you’re ever wondering what I’m reading or what page I’m on, you can find out there on my account. I’m usually reading multiple books at a time, and I’m a slow reader, so it can take me a while to get through just [...]
I started a new blog called Catching a Dragon, which is where I’ll start posting anything having to do with my adventures in writing fantasy. It’s very much a branding decision. If I ever have the slightest possibility of getting a middle-grade fantasy novel published, would I want potential readers coming here, where there are [...]
This article seemed interesting. I guess the movie studios are really hating not being able to capitalize on Netflix’s streaming success (which, quality-wise, isn’t even that great): At a press conference today in Los Angeles, the company announced that, as rumored, it’s launching a new program called the Disc to Digital service. Starting on April [...]
Last night I sent out another small batch of query letters to producers regarding my screenplay The Melody Box, only this time I made mention of my small new site www.TheRealMelodyBox.com, showing off my attempt at programming a program that does what the melody box in the screenplay does: generates melodies. I’m hoping the potential [...]
If you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve redesigned my main site. It is now extremely simple, mostly just a collection of links. That’s really the only purpose it was serving before, but it was much more cluttered and clunky, and the CMS I was using (called “Dragonfly”) was out-of-date and had some problems rejecting certain IPs [...]
I recently came across this blog: Freedom to Learn by Peter Gray. There are a bunch of interesting articles there, and I haven’t read them all. But I really appreciate some of them; they echo what I’ve been saying all along, and it’s always nice to feed my confirmation bias. In one article, Gray writes: [...]
Here’s a fun website: Things Other People Accomplished When They Were Your Age It’s a great way to depress yourself by comparing yourself to other people! Perhaps not good for your mental health, but maybe you can stop being so self-conscious and find it funny… and be sure to also look back at what other [...]
There are, of course, a ton of animation blogs out there, but here are a few random ones I’ve been visiting recently: Pencil Test Depot – This has a lot of great pencil tests, as the name might suggest. 2D animation, yes, but the principles of animation don’t change. Lots of great stuff there. I [...]
