Ya know that thing where you’re all proud and feeling good about yourself for not only exceeding your usual limitations, but for actually following through on a deliberate plan to do exactly that, AND achieving a seemingly positive outcome as a result which, left to your own thoughts, you then promptly re-imagine as the most miserably epic and embarrassing failure in the history of miserably epic and embarrassing failures, from which the only possible ways to recover are the elimination of all witnesses, escape to another plane of existence, or ritual suicide?
Sometimes I Make Noise:
Since it’s still just barely Halloween, why not one more creepy song for the month? Though this one’s a little different, as it’s an actual song, complete with vocals and everything. Ya, I know. But I’m still not sorry.This particular track was a deliberately Type O Negative-like song that I did for the last band project I worked on, after Peter Steele died of heart failure. In memory of Pete, and in keeping somewhat near the clinically depressed, macabre and creepy themes of Type O, I decided to make it a song about psychic mediums. Seemed an appropriate tribute at the time, and it makes a damn fine Halloween song as well, I think. As is typical, I wrote and performed all the parts and lyrics, blah, blah, blah- enjoy.
Sometimes I Take Pictures: Dessicated Friends…
my entire math life
I swear to god I will spend my entire life on this site ranting about how math is nOT UNICORNS if I have to. Lets see, real world applications of imaginary numbers… imaginary numbers are used to quantify physical characteristics, in fancier terms to fuCKING MEASURE STUFF
- imaginary numbers allow a second dimension to the real numbers which is, like, really cool, you know? because it comes in really handy when trying to visualize two dimensional systems such as
- circuit analysis used in electrical engineering (ej. dimmer switches OR an alarm circuit which turns that little red light on when your car’s gas is running low OR the wheatstone bridge circuit to measure resistances of strain gauges to build entire fucking buildings)
- vibration analysis used in mechanical engineering (used to record machine vibrations to tell when they stop working or are about to breakdown - this sounds really stupid, I know, but it’s a huge deal)
- strength of an electromagnetic field (ej. compasses OR x-rays OR power sockets OR tv antennas OR cellphone base stations)
So, balancing checkbook guy, I think what you’re doing is really cool, and imma let you finish, but imaginary numbers are important as hell, don’t let the nomenclature fool you, there’s people in the math world that put really stupid names to important math stuff.
What ya got there boy ….OMG
