I don't see how you'd possibly play a full chord? Dyads yes, but you've only got two hands, so even a basic triad is out of the question.

Am I understanding that instrument correctly? It looks like it's only capable of 9 notes, which would leave it incredibly limited, since there's 12 notes in an octave.

That why you need to be creative when playing. There are tons of videos of very talented people playing and making really nice music with this instrument. It's not for everyone, which can be also said about any other instrument. To each to their own.

Yay! SAO is apparently polarizing and a lot of people either love it or hate it. We can talk about it when you're done with it.

Ahhhhh, it's finally Friday.

Last night one of my beagles ate one of my daughters socks. He's done stuff like this before, but thankfully, it was on my wife's watch, so I can't be blamed for it. Rather glad it was one of my daughters socks too, since they're pretty small.

The fact that it hasn't already taken the "Northern" exit means we'll likely see it exiting from the South in a few days.

Gross.

Heh, I'm not surprised in the slightest. I'm curious how many posts I made yesterday actually.

Edit: Somewhere in the ballpark of 75. Not bad. Felt like a lot more.

When you 'discover' it you need to bring it in the house and tell your wife you're just going to throw it in the wash because "it still looks pretty good"

It now looks incredibly unlikely that I will be able to find someone to share my room at PDXLAN November. Which means I will have to bear the entire $260 bill myself, with no help. Not a big deal to most people who go to LAN parties at hotels, but a pretty big deal for me. Bus service to the hotel is non-existent so I can't commute. Staying at the hotel is nice, but will cost the resulting pretty penny.

I have a feeling everyone who wants a room has one by now.

The trip will be something to look forward to, of course -- three days away from home spent with gamers of many different stripes, all with their PCs set up to play mostly the games I don't. It's outside my usual comfort zone, but that's part of what I love about it. And the cause it supports (Union Gospel Mission's Thanksgiving food programs and meals) is an excellent one. It's just the timing that's a challenge.

On an unrelated note (except that money is involved), does anyone know anything about this smartphone? My current phone won't update anymore and doesn't think it has storage left when it does. The Best Buy clerks are clueless, as you would expect, as to Android not automatically moving things to the MicroSD card to make room. 8GB is no longer enough -- I need more space if I'm going to do what I want. And I certainly don;t want to spend more on a phone than my usual month's rent!


Hold out hope on the hotel. For an event, I saw people still trying to share rooms the night before the event started. You might find someone.

Regarding your phone, I'm assuming you've tried a factory reset?

This has actually happened a few times now. The first time it happened, I was the one unfortunate enough to have "discovered" the missing sock. For anyone curious, a sock doesn't bear much resemblance to a sock anymore after it's passed through the digestive tract of a beagle. It's in one piece, sure, but yeaaaaaaaaa, it looks pretty much like everything else that comes out that end of a pup.

She was pretty pissed that I didn't take a picture of it, though.

I've watched some videos of it being played and it looks like you can hit two notes with the same hand (thumb and either middle or ring finger can hit adjacent notes simultaneously). That means you can hit three or four note chords by using both hands.

Re: Level 827! VGG chat about life and everything. And of course about 43.
I'm a bit intrigued by this handpan thing, more for curiosity sake than anything.

I think I get the idea. It's pretty similar to a steelpan, but the designers are pretty adamant it's not a "drum". Each handpan is (obviously) pre-tuned to a specific key, and it appears the instrument itself is limited to a single octave.

So, technically speaking it wouldn't be a challenging instrument to learn from the perspective of needing to know scales or anything of that nature, but would require some decent rhythm on the part of the player.

The "Zen" bit makes sense then. I do see this as something that would be pretty relaxing to play. Pretty unique sound, too.

Have fun with it Jonna!

(You realize since you mentioned it on here, you are now obliged to record yourself playing something and post it on GeekDo, yea?)

I do agree with this, but then again, given the number of shots to the head I've taken over the years, there's no way I'm not already mad.

Edit: Previous made no sense.
