Here is a Walking Escapist (30 Jan 2005 at 23:37)
Here is a Walking Escapist
Unless you count Zelda or Halo 2, this is about the only thing I accomplished this weekend. Boy, it is sure easy to spend a long time tweaking low-res animations pixel by pixel. This is for the new animation (not yet visible) in my puzzle game escape.

10,000! (25 Jan 2005 at 15:28)
Although my brother Mike claimed he would beat me I was the first to 10,000 audioscrobbler tracks by a significant margin (compare oatmeal2000).

Parallel-world Electrons (24 Jan 2005 at 20:40)
Today I went to see the "Parallel-world Electricians" Maywa Denki give a "Product Demonstration" as part of the Wats:on festival at CMU (the first ever in the USA). For the most part this was really great. There were loads of weird nonsense machines and toys and MIDI-controlled mechanical instruments. The "president" of the art collective was especially endearing because his English was so "cheap" (as he put it).

After the show I was recognized by a young art student because of my web page (she had been "visiting since high school"), which is a flattering and alarming experience. This is actually the second time this has happened on CMU's campus in recent memory--an oddity to me since I have felt that I have been mostly concentrating on projects (ie, aphasia; escape; PhD) without much mainstream appeal for the last few years. Anyway, that was very nice of you, thanks.

I put up photographs from my trip to California. My favorites as usual end up on my gallery page, in the New! section.

Or... ARE THEY?! (19 Jan 2005 at 22:30)
Most amusing article title of 2005, from CNN: "Poll: Nation split on Bush as uniter or divider."

UPD: Hockey is Lif (18 Jan 2005 at 00:47)
Due to repeatedly having to see the massive problems in my most recent font Hockey is Lif on Jason's Weblog (as he works his project to 'cool' the font a bit into a sort of monstrous, distended Helvetica), I silently uploaded a new improved version of the font. How uncrapartlike!

In other extended project news, I have been also silently working to add animation and sound to Escape. Sound is about 1% done, but animation is probably at least half done. Be on the lookout for "Beta 2" soon!

NEW: Hockey is Lif
Thanks to fontforge (Fontographer does not run on my computer any more because I have too much memory) I made my first font in three and a half years. It's called Hockey is Lif. (Also, I have restarted the Divide By Zero mailing list from scratch, so if you want to be on it, go there and sign up!)

The Most Beautiful Font Ever Constructed (14 Jan 2005 at 16:49)
The Most Beautiful Font Ever Constructed
Witness the most beautiful font ever conceived, "Untitled.font." It was created by Adam and Jason and Tom 7 and Heather and Dug and Jeff at D's Six Pax and Dogz on January 13, 2005. Don't delay -- put this in your Windows Microsoft right away.

UPD: Illustrated Notes from Computer Science (07 Jan 2005 at 20:51)
I made it back to Pittsburgh. I am currently cleaning up Last Year stuff in preparation for the new semester. I found a bunch of good notebook pages from 2004, which are now at Illustrated Notes from Computer Science.

Tom with a Big Tree (04 Jan 2005 at 13:08)
Tom with a Big Tree
800×533 version
Alison suggested that I see some big trees so I did that right away. This is the largest redwood at Big Sur in Monterey. The shirt says "Fire Tom Murphy."

More Awkward Smiles for Vacation Photos (04 Jan 2005 at 02:47)
More Awkward Smiles for Vacation Photos
800×533 version
This is me at Point Lobos in Monterey, CA. (Los Lobos kick your ass. Los Lobos kick your face. Los Lobos kick your balls... into outer space!) This was a pretty cool spot. We saw whale squirts, and the backs of whales, from really far away. Unfortunately, we were unable to catch my dream photo of the surf splashing up around me on the rocks, even though the surf did splash all over me and my stuff on the rocks.

Tom is in California (01 Jan 2005 at 23:06)
Tom is in California
800×533 version
You might have thought that it would never happen, but I am in California this week*. Here is a picture of me in San Francisco. (Click for a bigger version.) Any recommendations of things not to miss while I'm here?

* I am not setting my watch to PST, though--my final East Coast holdout.
