not trying very hard

Found a new program that lets me edit posts offline and also spell check. A very needed feature. Stupid name, but I’ll forgive them. All the more reason for you blogging kids to switch to Movable Type.

Not too much exciting new stuff — mostly just spending time with the family and trying to play Final Fantasy XI. I’m still unsure if I like it very much, especially since I can hardly handle killing a Forest Hare without getting my butt kicked. Hardcore.

One nice thing about this offline editor deal is that I can automatically insert the music I’m listening to while I post. A nice feature in theory, but with two problems:

1) It doesn’t have an iTunes plugin, which is now my primary music listener dealie.
2) I can’t listen to music and write.

Actually, I more or less can’t listen to music and do anything requiring thinking without getting oft distracted. Homework, writing, reading… nope. Well, I can’t listen to real music at least. Music without words doesn’t distract me too much… but what’s the point?

I have exactly 5 tasks left this semester (including all homework, projects, and finals). Only two weeks of classes left, then one week of finals.

Exciting times!

  1. I can’t listen to music while performing any task that requires moderate concentration. Music is just too distracting – my mind focuses on it and everything else becomes secondary.

    Real music doesn’t have words, eh? Let that be your connotation. Music, by definition, has no “words.” Some melodies can be sung, but that is hardly neccessary for the enjoyment of music. You wonder what the point is of listening to music without lyrics, but I wonder why many people put so much emphasis on the lyrics. If you think about it, no one listens to music for the lyrics. If that’s all they cared about artists would just speak the words as poetry and not bother with all that complicated recording os music. No, you listen to music because of the sound of instruments, the intriguing rhythm, the emotion the music makes you feel. Lyrics are an effective means to convey the artist’s thoughts and sometimes they do have something interesting to say, but ultimately we listen for the music.
