Title: The Official Daily Diary (TODD) Thread
Post by: The Bamboo Forest on January 27, 2011, 01:27:46 AM
What is currently being posted in TOOT should be posted HERE so that we can hopefully finally un-derail TOOT. So yes, we can have discussions here without needing to use an [/off-topic] tag. :P

I just had to finish another crapload of homework. Gah, I'm just still too stuck in vacation mode. :x

(And I know the acronym is a little off, but "TODD" works way better than "TODDT", so :lol:)

When will the shitheads down the hall learn? They keep blasting their music way too loud, with the excuse that it's not quiet hours yet.  News flash: There's still such a thing as "courtesy hours" where you have to accommodate others who complain about noise, and that's in effect around the clock.

Oh, and the best part? Anybody who ever blasts their music around here is always a fan of hip-hop, techno or electropop garbage.  And here I am, listening to heavy metal... I'm sure most people would actually expect my music to be played at the loudest volume, if they were to just stereotype me. :P But nope, I'm at least glad I can refute the stereotype...

I think most of the time it's been the last one, it was probably more along the lines of Ke$ha.  I haven't heard anyone blasting "Alejandro" yet... Admittedly, I'd rather hear that than "TiK ToK," but it's still inconsiderate either way.

Lucky.  I didn't really have the background or the training to take that up as a major; it's always been more of a hobby for me than anything else, but now I'm wondering if I should've put a portfolio together anyway three years ago. D:

Yeah, it took a strange turn for me to finally decide to become an art major, considering I don't need a portfolio in order to major in Conceptual Information Arts (CIA), which is a strange major cause it's basically a mix of all of the arts bounded into a field that involves incorporating old media traditions to new media, like algorithmic work, physical computing, biology and life, or fractal art.

Pre-Algorithm and Algorithm Art
http://www.verostko.com/ (http://www.verostko.com/)

Fractal Art and other crazy stuff:
http://sprott.physics.wisc.edu/pickover/home.htm (http://sprott.physics.wisc.edu/pickover/home.htm)

So basically I'm in a field where I'm pretty much facing a steep learning curve where I can choose any sorts of arts from painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, etc. and find ways that art was developed us with the digital media we currently have.

Screw sleep schedules, especially on weekends. Unless you have a job, you don't need to get up that early.
Title: Re: The Official Daily Diary (TODD) Thread
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on January 30, 2011, 04:06:40 PM
Maybe not, but it makes it a lot easier to get up at the right time on those days where I do need to get up early.  I mean, if I stick to times that are more comfortable for me four days a week, I won't be able to get to class on those three days where I need to be up and about as early as 8... It's easier to go to sleep progressively later than earlier, after all.

Haven't been on today because my mom and dad paid me a surprise visit today. We spent most of the day together...ate lunch, and then I showed them some new stuff on campus. It's kind of cheesy, but this was one of the best days I've had since enrolling in college.

I know what you mean, really.  Being this far away from home for an extended amount of time is actually hard to adjust to, and it doesn't take long before you're homesick.


Well, I needed to work most of last night until I logged out around 11 or so, but I finished the scholarship whose deadline was just before midnight last night.  Totally not waiting on the next one, which could award much more as long as I complete it before February ends...

Oh, hardly.  Schools up here are just more thrifty with any built-in snow days because snowfall isn't anywhere near as rare as it is down south. :P Still, Syracuse is particularly sparing all things considered— back home, the public schools usually canceled three to five days a year, and the event calendars always marked the tentative last day with the expected five snow days.

You guys got rain and snow, all I get is fog, sun, and cold nights. I just wonder when someone gets killed by the fog, cause that shait is crazy.

Anyway, I'm now prepared to settle for a major/minor. The problem is whether I should double major, or major and double minor and I wanna graduate in the next 2 years or as soon as possible. I know I wanna major in CIA and minor in Asian American Studies, but I'm considering doubling in DAI or taking it as a minor.

You know, I think this is gonna be one of my favorite threads to visit from time to time.

So I might not be minoring in Asian American Studies at all since I just wanna take the Filipino-related classes and maybe try to work with one of the Pilipino community groups just because I'm in school and realizing that you guys don't have a great Ethnic Studies at your colleges.

I'll just declare as an art major with an emphasis in Conceptual Information Arts and maybe a minor in Design and Industry.

Yay me!  :) :) :)

You know, honestly, I would be very interested in taking a Asian-American Studies class since probably around half of my background is of Filipino ancestry, but I really need to take classes that could benefit me more in the process of getting a job in the train wreck of today's economy. I really don't have enough figured out for myself to put me in a safe position for at least my first few years out of college. :(
Title: Re: The Official Daily Diary (TODD) Thread
Post by: Toltendo on February 05, 2011, 02:26:36 AM
Well I should tell you that there is a community based organization on campus called PACE (Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor), which you can check out here if you have a Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=13810630710

They basically spread out cultural awareness about our history and trying to preserve it as well. It's a way to get to know other Pilipinos and the community. I won't be declaring a minor mostly because I would have to take one other Asian studies classes like a Chinese, Japanese, or Vietnamese class, but now I feel like getting a little more involved at school now that I'm coming half-way to graduate. I know I may not get a good job if I were to major in Asian American Studies because I would have to get a job in community organizing or in education, which I wouldn't mind.

By the way, I didn't know you had some Pilipino blood in you TBF. Cool.  :)

WTF is culture jamming? :|

Well it's a form of disruption, a tactic used by social movements to disrupt mainstream culture or corporate advertising. It's like when artists for example, would change a design of a corporate logo, which we are doing for my assignment, and sort of make a form of parody or satire within that design, but it can be in any form of medium that is within those contexts.

Examples:
http://www.google.com/images?client=flock&channel=cds&q=culture+jamming&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1360&bih=654

I mean nobody got arrested doing this project in the past other than someone who got caught graffiti and got a ticket, which my teacher had to write him out of it. Other than that, we're only allowed to do this under legal boundings.

And to prove that this an actual art project I have to do, check out my class assignment:

I didn't realize that it was suppose to be St. Patrick's Day when I saw one of my classmates' hair dyed green, wearing green clothing and shoes to match it. I was scared if anyone was gonna do some pinching, but then I realized that this is college, that's so elementary. Then again, it was an art class, so one guy did pinch a girl.  :shock:

Same here. I do remember tasting Pixie Sticks a while back and both the fun and taste wasn't the same anymore. Tasting a Pixie Stick was like cocaine lite for me, only that you get some of the paper residue in your mouth, combined with the sugar substance.

I remember loving sour candy, although I would never have as much as I would like, but every once in a while, it was great having that sourness on my tongue.

Currently reading this book now. I really empathize with his childhood, the way his parents seemed to influenced his OCD to how he actually felt deep inside whenever he gets slimed or pied in the face, to name a few. I'm still weirded out at how much adversity this person had to do whatever it took to be on television, even if it was worsening his condition.

Maybe I'll do a review of his book later on.

Post by: Toltendo on April 05, 2012, 04:19:09 AM
Damn, where'd you find that (be it on the internet or in hard copy form)? :o

I'm currently borrowing it from the San Francisco Library. There's no e-Book new copies being sold, I heard about the book a long time ago (there was a Youtube video from a nighttime news broadcast from 1996 [I believe] which showed him talking about his OCD and I've been wanting to read it.)

If you're looking for a memoir about his stint on Double Dare, there's not much. It's more about his personal life, childhood, and other television shows he's done. I feel bad for him that even though he switched from living in a gated community, he and his family stared wanting privacy and then a kid (which he calls an intruder) found his way and got an autograph from him. It's a small smidget from the book, but I'll give a full review when I'm done with it.
Title: Re: The Official Daily Diary (TODD) Thread
Post by: Toltendo on April 12, 2012, 04:05:11 AM
So here's my sparse review of Marc Summers book:

-Now if you're expecting to read a book about his past experience with Double Dare, you will get it, but there won't be much. This book is basically a half memoir/information book about Marc Summers' experience with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). He puts some of his personal life into inspection and finds out that his past leads towards a trail of his realization of this anxiety disorder. From the constant thoughts of his mother's worries about his father not coming home at night and the empathy for his mother's worries, to his deep constant feelings of anxiety whenever whipped cream, baked beans in a vat, or even dog food were to ever physically be flung or hit in his way, he shudders at the idea of being messy, despite giving the cameras a smile and a good-natured attitude towards the chaos.

He talks about his obsessions of wanting to be on camera, on television, radio, that feeling of commanding a room and making people entertained. He tells about how he was pretty much the only kid in his neighborhood having a Johnny Carson poster on his bedroom wall. He dreamt of hosting or being on The Tonight Show, let alone just appear and being pushed back as a guest ten times (if I recall that's the actual number). But he did get his wish, when in 1993-4, he appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, who at the time was new at the job and previously mentioned doing stand-up (that's right, he was previously a stand-up comedian during the 70s with Jay, Robin Williams, and Garry Shandling at the Comedy Factory [if that's the correct club] in Los Angeles). Jay was interviewing Burt Reynolds, who at the time was going through a divorce and was going through a book tour, promoting his autobiography, to which Marc explicitly notes that he didn't write. Jay basically pestered at him throughout the whole interview, with roaring applause and laughter from the audience, which was basically the goal of trying to bring in ratings for NBC, which I guess at the time, there was some concern of NBC losing viewers cause Johnny left and a era of golden television has left and needed an edge to keep up with a newer generation.

To skip ahead, Marc made a joke about him being married and Burt not, to which Burt threw a cup of water onto Marc's crotch. Marc tried to rebel back by doing the same thing, but Burt knocked the cup and hit Marc's face, to which he thought he knocked his tooth out [he didn't]. Then the producers had the idea of pieing each other in the face (the cream was actually shaving cream, which was better for comic and physical effect when thrown).

These are one of the many things in the book where he discusses about his personal life, as well as his introspection upon everything needing to be in order: from the fringe being straightened out, the kitchen curtains needing to have the same creases when on the floor, to having not one mark on the walls of his house.

From seeing his personality, he seems somewhat of a control freak and a bit of an a-hole, saying to the reader that he has A-type personality traits: impatient, hostile, aggressive, competitive, strong in achievements, basically feeling the need to control in order to have a stable life. And that's what Marc had struggled over the years.

Yeah, but apparently his weak subjects are soaps and certain pop culture. But maybe there are some American topics that he may not know, so it may be an advantage, I don't know exactly. I have seen a ton of episodes of Youtube and the majority of them are won by the Chasers though. Hoping to gt picked though.  :)
