Gold Lion Gonna Show me Where the light is...

I totally forgot to mention this last week. But just recently The Redonklulous Linker has fullfilled 2 major steps in leaving us irresposnible children behind and becoming an adult. He purchased his very own house and also got engaged. Congratulations man!

Last week a few of my friends from the Masters of Art program had some of their work exhibited in a show titled Dissonance. Didn't get any shots of the work or the exhibition... but here are some pics from the drunken celebration that followed.


Now that the The RL is gonna be domesticized... a Wi-Fi Washer and Dryer might be a great investment so he can multitask while updating his blog for us.

Washers and dryers that link wirelessly to internet-connected home networks are being tested by consumers who are receiving updates on their dirty laundry by cell phone, computer and TV set.

Messages not only indicate when a wash is complete but also can warn that a lint filter is clogged or a load is too large. Users can remotely command the machines to fluff dry clothes or start a load from a distance after being told -- oops -- they forgot to start the wash.

The adventures of Professor Awesome-O are still continuing. Me and the Lead professor had are first grading session last Tuesday. This is when all the kids pinup there work and give a us a brief presentation/explanation of what they are trying to communicate and why. Then I had to critique and comment on each one with the kids looking at me.... wow that was tough. A lot of the times I just wanted to say "look, save your parents money and just drop out of this program now because your work makes my eyes bleed" but instead i had to say, " I like the direction you're going in, try to focus a little more on blank and blank, but good work". Bollocks !

Grading art is a lot harder than I thought. I have a lot more respect for all the professors that graded my crap in the past and actually gave me positive feedback.

But as the grading went on ( for 2 hours ) there was a consistent pattern where I was bad cop and the other professor was good cop. I think we made for a good team, and hopefully this will help the kids prepare for the next assessment.

‘member when our IB biology class judged the elementary school science fair? Me and you had to convince everyone that that balloon kid’s project sucked because he only did one trail and did not control for the numerous multitudes of variables. We convinced the other IB kids to give a prize to that fat white trash girl who did the “does hot or cold water make ice cubes faster” project. Her teacher gave her a D because her board was ugly and misspelled, but her 3 trails made her project the most scientific and the lack of parental aid endeared her to us.
