The Haps - June 2023
(This is my Now Page! Occasional updates on what I'm up to.)
Blogging & Dev
Taking a slower pace with blogging, but still sharing my adventures in C# and .NET!
You can catch up with my tech projects through the Tech tag on my blog.
I released Forest a while back! An experiment in playing with a few sounds from Ocarina of Time and Chrono Trigger!
I'm digging deep into learning finger style guitar. My favorite so far was this cowboy waltz I improvised on my new acoustic.
I finished my fourth sketch book! I'm starting to not treat them as precious and am really drawing loosely in them. It's great, very liberating!
Words and Sounds
- Tolkein's Fellowship of the Ring Wow, the "One does not simply..." meme doesn't actually come up in the book! Nor does "You have my bow...and my axe!"
- Calvin and Hobbes Vol. 1 These strips are so delightfully dynamic! I can't believe I've slept on these.
- Mickey Mouse, Vol. 2: Trapped on Treasure Island A find at Recycled Books in Denton. The adventure strips from the 30's are so wildly detailed!
- I have a few words written through the Books tag on my blog. My favorite this month: Rob Ingles Singing Lord of the Rings
- Rooms With Walls and Windows by Julie Byrne. Beautiful, moody, home grown solo album.
- This Jungle in Gaming Mix on YouTube is a special kind of nostalgic.
- program music II by KASHIWA Daisuke. Is "Music That Could Be in an Anime Movie" a genre?
- Ted Lassoooooo! 💔
- I'm listening to Cartoonist Kayfabe while I draw. Since comics are a solitary experience, it's so fun to hear a couple of pros geek out over them together!
It's hot. I'm cold blooded. So I'm in my element! ☀️
Had my folks visit for Mother's day!! We had a good time exploring a few museums in Dallas and eating good food.
