We send Beavis & Butt-head to the hospital! It doesn’t seem to help, though. Frankly, what could?

No stream tonight. :(

I have completely lost my voice, so I won’t be streaming tonight. Maybe next week. We’ll see. I just haven’t been in the mood to stream lately, so now that I am in the mood, of course this would happen. Sigh.

Yesterday, I snagged my first “virtual cache”. It’ll probably be my only one, as well, as virtual caches are a dying breed. See, a virtual cache is a geocache with no cache container. You get credit for the find by taking a picture of yourself at the cache location.Virtual caches were banned from Geocaching.com in 2005, but any existing virtual caches were allowed to remain. The cache I found had to do with Boston’s Museum of Science, which has scattered a “virtual solar system” throughout Greater Boston. Somewhere within the museum is a small slice of the Sun, and then the planets are located at appropriate distances from the Sun. Everything (size and distance) is all to scale, too, which is awesome.

Now, I’ve heard rumor that some of the planets are no longer available, as the museum is no longer sponsoring this program, which is kind of a shame. But in terms of the cache, it was fine. You only needed to snag pictures of yourself at three of the planets, as long as at least one of them was Jupiter or farther out. As usual, info can be found on my geocaching page, which has recently been reorganized now that I’ve found more than 20 caches! The page was getting a bit on the long side.

Special thanks to Multipurpose Spam for making my snazzy new intro. If you don’t know who they are… shame on you! Check them out at http://youtube.com/tatsudoshi and http://multipurposereviews.com/

Yes! The Genesis version of Beavis & Butt-head was a good game. A more difficult game than most people who bought it were expecting, but a good game. It’s basically an inventory-based adventure game with some platforming elements thrown in just to piss you off. But I loved the hell out of it as a teenager, and felt proud when I beat it. At least, I think I did?

A sore thumb…

I found my 20th geocache after work. It was located in Beacon Hill, the wealthiest neighborhood of Boston. Whenever I’m in Beacon Hill, I just feel like I have no business whatsoever being there, and feel like I’m sticking out like a sore thumb. If you know what I look like, you might understand why. It took me over an hour to find the cache once I made it to the coordinates, because I was looking in the completely wrong area on the wrong side of the street. Even worse, the place where I was looking had a nice big “DO NOT ENTER, RESIDENTS ONLY” sign, which made me feel even more like I simply should not be anywhere even remotely close to this area. It was beginning to get dark, and I was on a very secluded side street, so I was getting damn nervous and was about to just give up and go home, but I really hate it when I set out to find a cache and wind up not finding it (this has only happened twice so far, and one of the times I went back the next day and found it). Somehow, my brain just kicked into overdrive… I re-read the title of the cache (“Overlook in the flats”), and the meaning of the title just CLICKED in my head. Once that happened, I found the thing in 30 seconds! Info is over on my geocaching page, as usual.

I plan on doing a live stream this Thursday, 28 October 2010, at 10 PM Eastern Time. I haven’t streamed in forever, I know. I’ll be doing a blind LP of a Mario romhack. More info as Thursday gets closer.

Boring birds

These birds were having a huge fight! As soon as I began recording them, though, they all calmed down. You can hear me breathing angrily. It was frustrating as all hell! Once I stopped recording, they all flew away! Damn birds.

Quick geocaching update

Yesterday, I found a geocache in Rhode Island with my father. Today, I found one close to work. They were #18 and #19 for me, respectively. With any luck, I’ll make it to 20 finds this week! Info on my geocaching page, as usual.
