Nothing-A-Day 05

Evidently when I made this "commitment" to "post something" "for each day of the month", I should have "commit" this "commitment" to "memory". Sure, it's another one of those "I did nothing" days, and in this case it didn't even involve leaving the awpartment until early in the evening, but a deal's a deal. I have thus decided to make an amendment to the contract: time is an abstract. For the 30 days in September there should be 30 posts, as close to a regular schedule as possible. Exceptions accepted: I simply forgot last night.

Playing Rock Band, you see, now that my crash cymbal's been fully repaired with the latest modification: I originally increased the pressure in the spring that controls recoil on the impact microphone inside the cymbal, which reduced the occurrence of double-taps, but it only reduced, not prevented, the distasteful combo-breaking. So I cracked it open again and inserted a small, folded and shaped piece of toilet paper to cut down on the vibrations and overall sensitivity to get the minor vibrations following a strike to stop being read. Worked like a charm; in the last 11 or so songs I've played not a single double-tap has been observed.

Going to see Scott Pilgrim vs the World again, since I'm that kind of guy. I haven't seen a movie in the theaters for quite some time, and this may actually be the first time I've ever seen a movie twice in the theaters. Normally I don't go for this sort of thing, but it'll be quite a while before it's out on Blu Ray, so I'll take what I can get.

It'll be back to Katamari Forever for me, now. 4105 objects found, just 40 to go. I can practically taste the wasted time. Though I've had an urge lately to do another run through Resident Evil 4. Why not? I've got a few hours to kill.
