The Day The Oxen Died

The day the oxen died, everyone mourned them, and buried themselves in sadness, and they never came out.
The next day, the oxen came back to life, and they saw that everyone had buried themselves, and thus the oxen buried themselves in sadness, and they never came out.
Until the next day, when they came out.
But then they died again.
Then, the penguins were deeply saddened by the loss of their oxen, so they visited an abandoned genetic engineering lab.
They created a new species of super oxen, which had wings, rockets, and high intelligence.
This new species went on a rampage, and destroyed all of the species on earth.
Following this, they buried themselves in sadness, and they never came out.
Until the next day, when they came out.
Then, they dug up all the other species who had buried themselves in sadness, and they ate them.
Afterwards, the super oxen got very hungry, so they began to eat each other, until there was only one left.
He buried himself in sadness, and he never came out.
Until the next day, when he declared himself king of the world, and his reign continued forever.
Until the next day, when he died.

Yet Another Thing You Should Never Do

I was on a trip to Ottawa recently for nationals in the Musicfest Band Competitions. It had the ability to go well, and for most people it did- but not for me. Thanks to sneezing people, I spent most of the time sick (I felt like I had a fever, but according to others I didn't). On the second night, my hotel room was inhabited by a couple of visitors. But that's not important. At about 10:30, emanating from somewhere, I'm guessing the huge speaker in the ceiling, something that sounded vaguely like this but sort of like it was produced by a cheap 90s synthesizer began. The dialogue between me and the visitors went something like this:

Visitor 1: What's that sound?

Me (calmly): Well, when I was at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto, I heard that sound, which turned out to be the fire alarm.


Visitor 2: Run!!!

And thus, we ran. Sort of. I had enough time to grab my wallet, my iPod, and my bag, but I was worried because I didn't have time to grab my charger, my concert shoes, and most importantly the two lego cars I'd brought along. But anyway. With my nasty sickness, I had to hassle down nine flights of stairs. And when I finally got to the bottom, I was forced to wait while nothing much happened. While I was waiting, I saw this:

Note that I'm not in this photo, nor was I involved in its taking. Also, disregard the peculiar mask.
Yeah. So apparently the poor guy was caught in the middle of a shower. Anyway, eventually we found out that a sensor had been tripped somehow. I'm not sure, just that it was a false alarm. So then we trudged upstairs, and finally I sat down again. A few minutes later, I went to sleep.

About a day later, I went on twitter, and after a bit of searching, I found this tweet:

Well done, you ditzy idiot. Did you know that the city of Ottawa recently tightened regulations on intentionally doing that sort of thing? I mean, it's easy enough for you to get framed without the tweet, but now all the police have to do is search "ottawa hotel alarm", and they'll find out who did it. "Duh, yeah, they'll never think of that! Haha!"
And either this person isn't an avid twitter user, or they're ashamed of what they did because I tweeted them telling them that they made a sick person scramble around a building when they probably should've been visiting a doctor. Not to mention the kid in five degree weather in his underpants.

In conclusion, due to the increased amount of hits my blog is getting (over 5000 at the moment), I hope a police officer finds this post, because idiots like these need to think before they act. Because that's the sort of thing only a drunk person would do (which they may well have been).

Think of what your school would do if they found out about this, "NBateni". I can see the tweet now:

#schoolmemories getting expelled cuz of fire alarm lol

I was visiting my friend's house the other day to see the hovercraft he's been working on. He turned on the propellor, and turned up the speed, when suddenly there was a big flash and this happened:

It was pretty cool, in retrospect, but it meant I didn't get to have a ride!
But man, it was impressive. There were pieces of plexiglass that had been blasted over six feet away. I'm glad I was standing back...

By the way, I think I need a new font for my posts. Perhaps Times New Roman. You can't go wrong with that. It's just that the current one is kind of hard to read in large quantities.

Who invented that acronym, anyway? It's terrible. I mean, try to think of any other acronym where the original is easier to say than the letter. Try comparing "doubleyou doubleyou doubleyou" to "world wide web". Why does there even need to be an acronym. In fact, why does it exist, anyway? Whose idea was it to have "WWW" in front of everything? I mean really, the only people who bother to put useless junk in front of words are french people. And even then, it's just a few letters that determine what gender a particular word is.
But anyway, I got a new microphone. It's known as the "Blue Snowball", and it's very good. I was going to put up an audio recording-ish thing to my YouTube channel just to test it out, but iPhoto decided not to work, so now I'm just sort of going to grump around until it starts working again.

Also, how come I never use indentations when I'm writing in my blog? I do it everywhere else.

Drum Test

I uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel. It's a sort of drum loop. Take a look:

Yeah. The end.

The Book Of Atrus Is A Comic?!

I cannot fathom how much better than Manga this is. Go read it! New pages released regularly!

The author intends to take it to the very end. That means, age 37, Gehn, Myst- everything. Personally, I'm excited. You know why? Because this won't be the first Myst comic, but it'll be the first good one... (ahem) Book of Black Ships (ahem)

EDIT (02/05/2012): I recently noticed that it's tagged "Manga". I disagree. If you think it's Manga, you're wrong.

EDIT (31/08/2012): Nevermind. I guess it might be, but I have no idea. Also, I no longer hate manga. Well, I still find some of it annoying, but not all, y'know?
