Internet TV aka ShoutcastTV on Winamp @ 09:48 am

Current Mood: content content
Current Music: ShoutcastTV Penn & Teller's Bullshit

Woohoo, finally, I got connected to a channel on ShoutcastTV via internet TV which is part of one of the last few versions of Winamp's features. Usually, if the broadcaster of the channel doesn't require subscription, you just wait in line if the server is full and so you're just in a queue until someone drops off the server. Sometimes ppl drop off on purpose, sometimes, they lose their connection. If the broadcaster requires a subscription, then you can't connect w/o one usually and that subscription supposedly allows you your own slot so you don't have to worry about "server busy" and watch the IP address scroll by while you wait for it to hopefully, hopefully connect. Now if if it's free to watch, then you might have to wait, but if you sign up for a subscription on that channel instead, it is also supposed to guarantee you a slot. Well on one of the free channels, I got connected like ASAP to Penn and Teller's Bullshit (WOOHOO!), which I hardly ever get connected to that fast. The bad news?? I Just burnt my grilled cheese sandwich. I haven't burnt a grilled cheese sandwich since I was 10 - or since I forgot to pay attention to the fact that I was cooking.

Can I just blame it on the ghosts in my kitchen instead?? Cuz the burner looks like it keeps getting turned up. I think I'd better go talk to the dead and explain to them that burning my very expensive food isn't funny. I like most of my food well-done, but not this well-done. Grr, way to ruin my breakfast. At least I have good entertainment! I'm eating this anyway, strange breakfast I know, and it stinks, ya know, like burnt bread, really burnt bread. Luckily I salvaged the other part of my sandwich and it didn't burn; I yanked that pan and spatula from those ghosts and took charge of my cooking. My mom always did tell me I spent too much time NOT paying attention to what I was cooking when I was cooking, otherwise, she said I'm actually a decent cook, snicker.

Story of my life, I get distracted easily. Perhaps cuz I try to do too much at once, so 80% of the time I get only most of the things done in "baby steps" so it takes me longer to do something. the other 20%, I actually get totally done in one fell swoop (or as I like to say, one swell foop - or perhaps by coincidence, the task happens to be easy.)

I'm going to eat my breakfast now. *Mocks Drax0r with her fake cheese - haha I'm insulting a grilled cheese sandwich by making one with soy cheese!* It's actually really, really good, even if it is burnt, the cheese is perfect and it's a three-cheese blend.

Now I'm rambling and missing P&T BS, not that I couldn't just listen to it; but for real BS fans, it's not quite the same to let it sit in the background.

I hope I keep having better luck with the ShoutcastTV; if I could, I'd subscribe to a bunch of channels I like, so that ppl will keep broadcasting, cuz most of the broadcasted shows are neat.

Wow, I actually created a blog for the first time in eons on LJ. I haven't even blogged in general for eons. This was supposed to be a quickie message, heh. Everyone, including me, should know better that I don't usually write quick, short messages.

Maybe if I feel like it I'll blog later - I have another website I started on first, so LJ still ends up coming in second place by accident, whenever I feel like blogging.

God, I can't wait til' I can afford a 17-in flatscreen, this 15-in monitor is killing me. No matter how many ways I play around with the fonts and sizes, it's just not quite enough and it's still super hard to read most of the time. Very annoying, but it's like some bad, some good; I have my own comp, even if it's not perfect, 256 MB of RAM, small monitor, worn-out keyboard that sometimes takes a lot of PSI of pressure from my fingertips to press the keys (at least the enter key doesn't stick and the keyboard is quieter than my bf's); and I'm again getting used to what I'm used to being the standard organization of the home, delete, insert, etc., keys whose positions I had to re-learn on my bf's keyboard (cuz they were different on the bf's comp), etc., no desk/chair so it's jury-rigged on the coffee table and I sit on the floor with my back against the couch (which I've done before so it's not hard to get used to, but annoying).

Um, it's just been a life of one step forward, two steps back, and today is no different. Sometimes it's one step forward, three or more steps back. Blargh. Didn't I say I was gonna shut up now?

A lot has happened in the past several, whatever, since I last blogged, and my brain is finally processing it, readying it for writing down, even if it's not written down very structurally.

So expect a lot of blogging sometime soon. Either here, or on Myspace (www.myspace.com/blancpage). If you decide to read my blogs and profile on Myspace, you shouldn't need to make an account on Mspace at all to do so, unless you want to. If you do decide to make an account on Myspace and want to be added to my friends list and keep up with blogs I post there, just send me a message first, so I know who you are, please, otherwise I'll probably delete the friend request if I don't recognize you or who/what you represent. As I said, I started first on Myspace (I don't even remember who finally convinced me to do it, and so I usually am on there more often than on LJ; and it's hard for me to keep up with both but I don't plan on getting rid of both accounts either. I'll just try and keep up with both and it'll probably take a lot of time.)

Monsoon season, yeehaw. It's fucking hot and humid with heat advisory warnings.

I broke our DVD player and neither of the comps have DVD-roms just CD-RW, I need to buy an antivirus program (err afford one rather) so that I can scan a CD for possible viruses. I have Ad-aware though, which works decently. Bf's bro gave us his old DVD player, which was really nice of him. Now I just wish I could afford TVO, or digital cable w/DVR. I'm missing more Bullshit. I'm seriously shutting up now, for now anyway, heh.

Notice none of my writing flows properly at all, it's just a bunch of bullshit (pun intended) thrown onto a page in no particular cohesive order.

I am an ellipses.

Broadcast woes
Winamp's slow
Bread burns
Soy churns
Penn chats
Teller acts

Monitor sucks
RAM's not enough
Sticky keys
That wasn't real cheese
Easily distracted
Toast is radio-active

Coffee table desk
Couch is a mess
Bigger is better
Does it make you wetter?
Just two inches more
And I'd be a man-whore

Bullshit here
Its everywhere, dear
DVD snapped
Go take a nap
Another brought in
Brother scores a win

No sense at all
Ellipses are tall
Random ramblings confuse
I eat a handful of cashews
Doth her sanity slip
By God girl, get a grip!

Thanks for writing your woes
While painting your toes
On MySpace you'll never see
The wonderful prose of me
So keep udating your views
And I'll give you good reviews

Nice to see you host
You owe me some posts!

Ohh, that was pretty damned amazing Eric

Did you make that up yourself? :P It put a smile on my face, thought it was cute and clever and amusing. I enjoyed it, thanks babe.

I've been listening/watching Bullshit all day long since I posted that bulletin, except when a few TV shows came on, then I had it on mute. Not too long after, though, I got kicked off the server (probably by someone with a subscription or just by fluke).

Hmm, shit, I can't remember what I was going to say, err type. Stupid gerbil tripped in his exercise wheel and broke its leg. Guess for now, my head is out of commission. The cobwebs aren't helping either. I have a headache. I always have a headache, migraine, sinus, tension... bleh.

I'm so fucking behind on my mudding crap and a bunch of other online stuff I'm supposed to be doing or trying to work on.

Thanks again for the comment, it was great. Very unique. :) XOXO

now that I've finally had a chance to read this and the other entry, I'm definately piqued to get to know you. For starters, from whence do you hail?

Thanks for the laugh Eric...

Originally from Seoul, South Korea, adopted by American parents at 18 months old. All I know is the American culture, about 20 Spanish words/phrases, a few French words (that I can recall from high school), and I was raised in the Twin Cities in Minnesota, lived in Grand Junction, Colorado, lived in various parts of Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Mesa, Arizona, lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and lived in Gardner, Texas. That's the short, short version.
