GoT

I’ve really loved the second season of Game of Thrones. The plot twists haven’t been as “OMG!” as in the first season, but it might be because you’re already used to the idea of major things happening. The world is less set than in other similar series. I’ve loved the character development, though, and I still regard it as one of the best (if not the best) series ever created.

Work’s been hard, but consuming, lately. I’ve been thinking of trying to stabilize my sleeping pattern by always going to bed around 22:00 and waking up around 06:00, but thus far it’s been a failure, because I haven’t kept the times. I gotta try harder, obviously. 😀

Winding Up

Looks like things are winding up with the summer. Thankfully, I’ve got myself organized and if all goes well I’ll emerge victorious at the end of summer!

Opened up the jogging season yesterday with a nice 2km run. It was pretty strenuous on my heart, but once I shrug off the rust (from not having run in something like 5-6 months) I’m sure I’ll be doing proper distances again. Twice a week should be enough for now…

 

 

Finally Weekend

And some time to rest… not! Woke up with the kids at around half past six.

It’s been fun having Sofia around for already two entire days, and we’ll have two more to go. I posted a fun a picture of her on a swing on Facebook. 😀

We haven’t really had a chance to play Minecraft with Petra, but I’ve got some ideas and I’ve decided to really put some thought into decorating rooms. I saw a video of someone creating the batcave on YouTube and got inspired to do some similar stuff, but we’ll see how it pans out. 😛

River Venom

Listening to the new Lapko album on Spotify and I’m quite impressed! Digging every song this far, but this one seems especially good.

Yesterday we went out to eat at Mamma Rosa’s. Got a pizza called Pollo Diablo or whatever and it was pretty good.. almost a sweet taste. I’ve started to tend towards pizzas with unusual tastes with my favourite (and Petra’s too maybe?) being a chicken-pineapple-smetana-feta cheese pizza.

We’ll have Petra’s aunt visiting us for the rest of the week. Luckily, tomorrow’s a national day off and Friday should be an easier day at work. Sofia will also be with us from tomorrow morning until Monday morning, which will be fun! And hopefully not too tiresome.

 

More Minecraft

Started playing Minecraft again.. This time with Petra! 😀 It’s pretty fun and a local server was surprisingly easy to set up. I had some problems with the java on Mac, but I got it fixed by finding tips on the Minecraft forum.. The internets to the rescue.

I finally got the guitars recorded for The Break. Here’s what it sounds like in its current state:

I still need to add some effects and mix it before it’s officially finished..

The Problem

Time flies by when you’re having fun. Haven’t had a lot of time for myself lately, what with all the raising children and stuff. I’ve not managed to record any guitars for Defenestrated – The Break yet, but I did, however, manage to program the drums to sound better..ish. I’ll still have to tweak them once I get the time.. Oh and record the guitars, damnit.

I did almost finish a song for the band. Still needs a solo, though. And the interlude needs to be worked on..

Story of my life. Many things to do, not enough time.

iTunes’ed

I started using iTunes, although I tried to avoid for ages. I’ve been importing CDs and files for a few days now and it’s going smoothly thus far.

We also changed the order of rooms, so now we’ve got a somewhat classical arrangement for the rooms: parents’ bedroom, kids’ room and a living room, instead of the earlier my workspace, livingroom/bedroom and kids’ room. I had to take apart my computer desk in order assemble it into a mirror view arrangement of itself. It must’ve taken 1½ hours. Funniest part is that the last ½ hour was simply trying to get the keyboard roll-out thingy back in place. I finally gave up and Petra managed to fix it while I calmed my nerves by catching a few glimpses of that Anvil documentary..
