I went out to breakfast with London this morning. I woke up at 7:30 for some reason, and hung out until about 9:30 when we skated to Silver Spurs. It’s a very tasty place to eat breakfast, especially the bacon, egg, and cheese on a bagel. They make their bacon just perfectly every single time, and that’s a very important thing for a breakfast diner to do. As we all know, bacon is the most important food group, as it is delicious, nutritious, and turns any meal into something that you can’t wait to eat. Also, during our trip to and from the restaurant, I avoided looking like an idiot on my skateboard, which is kind of rare for me. This can only mean one thing: I must be improving.
I was feeling very lethargic last night, a state that was only amplified by the fact that I was home alone for a number of hours. I was worried that, due to my mindset, I was going to let the evening get away from me without accomplishing anything. Luckily, when I was in the shower, I (for some reason) had the idea to complete my recording of my one-man version of “Afternoon Delight”, the song they sing in that one scene in anchorman:

So I spent about two hours last night tracking this with Jen in the room and noises all around my suite, working off of the clip (I didn’t listen to the original recording of the song). Rode NT1-A, Fast Track Pro, Logic Express. Why? Because I can, and because it’s funny to me.
Apparently now this is the kind of thing that I do with my spare time. My singing needs a bit of work…just be glad you’re not hearing the takes I didn’t use. I experimented with tuning in Logic, but it sounded too artificial with the plugin that’s included in Express. So it’s just me with some reverb.
In other news, I practiced my crontab skills last night when I made London’s computer have a spoken conversation with mine at a certain time. I got the idea because Bryant’s computer says the time every hour on the hour, and I thought it would be funny to schedule mine to, about five seconds before the hour, say “Hey Bryant’s computer, what time is it?” So I did that and it was easy, and then got the idea to have my computer talk to London’s. I had them have a silly little conversation, and when London came back and heard it happen for no apparent reason, he was a bit confused and definitely got a kick out of it.
So the point is, I didn’t think I was going to do crap last night and actually ended up accomplishing a few minor things. Today is the day for not doing. Rather, today is the day for Resident Evil 4.
