lierdumoa: (dance!)
I had this wicked cool plan (scheme?) to figure out a color scheme (plan?) for one of my sculptures in photoshop before painting it. So I took pictures. But my digital camera is old as dust and I couldn't find a card reader that reads it's obolete memory card at the nearby CompUSA.

I found an all in one card reader online and ordered it. It arrived yesterday. YAY!

Then I couldn't figure out how to install it. So I called [livejournal.com profile] fashes

[livejournal.com profile] fashes: Just stick it in your USB port.
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: No, it, like, needs to install internally.
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: Did you RTFM?
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: I'm unfamiliar with that acronym.
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: Read The Frickin' Manual
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: That's what I thought you meant. It didn't come with one!
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: I can't help you with this over the phone. Perhaps you should get another card reader that doesn't need to install internally.
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: But that will take time to order and I need these photos, like, soonish.
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: My brother has a card reader you can use. It would only require that you arrange a time to meet him, travel an hour and a half getting to him, another ten or fifteen minutes transferring the photos, and another hour and a half going back to your house!
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ...but.
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: That's what you get, procratinath0r.
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ...fine.

::later that evening::

[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ::performs brain surgery on computer::
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ::really incompetent brain surgery::
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ::by some fluke manages to successfully install card reader::
[livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa: ::calls [livejournal.com profile] fashes:: GUESS WHAT I JUST DID?!?
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: ::pat, pat:: Good job, dear.
[livejournal.com profile] fashes: Don't call me when your computer dies.

This reminds me of that time I was four and took a scissors to my dad's greencard. Cause it was so shiny, you know. I made my very own homemade confetti! I was so proud!



I'm desperate for vid talk. People should talk about vids to me. What's your current work in progress? Your vidding philosopy? What are your thoughts on music editing? How did you do that thing with the lens flare and the talking anus? Questions are also welcome. I'm always happy to talk about me. Maybe you want to know how I did that thing with the lens flare and the talking anus.

I talked to [livejournal.com profile] amothea for like an hour today about this instrumental piece she's working on and then she had to go, like, do her job or something. And my appetite was all whet for vidding discourse.
