Tipa stabs again. I can't even recall how long it's been since I made Tipa v1.0. I do remember that I twinked her with a lot of Rygorr armor from the orc fort in Velious, so that was probably the timeframe. She was my sixth character, I think? Mehve the Erudite Wizard, Etha the Halfling Druid, Tsuki the Gnome Mage, Nashuya the Dark Elf Shadowknight, Nina the Halfling Fighter, and then Tipa.

But, she quickly became my favorite.

Do they even still have the old models? I didn't even check!

My kayak is this companies first product, now called "The Bay". It's a great boat, folds up for storage, snaps together for use. My only issue with it is that it's a bit cramped for me. Well, now they have a new one. Longer, faster... more expensive...
Oru Kayak is raising funds for The Coast: a 16' origami kayak. For adventures near and far. on Kickstarter! We're returning to Kickstarter with big adventure in a small box. Store it in a closet. Throw it in your trunk. Check it on a plane.

Comparable to a "real" boat price.  Interested in demoing one.  They're just down the road so I may have to seek them out.  Cool!

Second Hyperlapse test. I've been waiting for this to come out for months. It really does make sped-up bike video look almost watchable, though, ironically, YouTube said it looked a little shaky and offered to clean it up ;-)

The center point of the video wanders back and forth oddly, as Hyperlapse tries to find the focus of the shot. In the thumbnail shot, you can see how Hyperlapse chooses to include far more of the left of the shot than the right. You can see this even more dramatically when I go under a bridge; the shot slams right over.

All that said, I'm looking forward to applying this to some drone shots. If I hadn't lost my drone to a waterfall....

Decided to put the music I'm listening to over here in this collection so that people who don't care can opt out ;-)

I reflexively didn't like Eminem back when he was popular. But, this song came on today and you just have to admire the skill. He tells three, four stories at once in that rapid-fire flow of his. I don't like all his stuff, but this is just a tour-de-force.

I tried to hate him early on, but it didn't work. He absolutely does grow in you.

Oru Kayak is about to Kickstart a new kayak, a really big one for long trips. The Coast, I think. Anyway, the KS price may make it affordable, and it's bound to be more comfortable than mine. I was out on the water for a couple hours today and my butt was feeling it by the end. I need to get a waterproof cushion or something.

Anyway, they were doing their KS video the other day. I'll share the new KS when it goes live. Kayaks for apartment dwellers. Can't beat it.

Darna was a long time, well-respected member of Team Tanglewood. I loved her from the moment I first recruited her back at the Black Hound Inn in the Gilded Vale. I made her a monk, because I needed a tank, and I thought someone whose power operated from wounds would fit the bill.

I found out just now that there was an actual warrior waiting to be hired... but I guess I missed him. Anyway, Darna couldn't tank at all, her DPS was subpar, I (a rogue) ended up tanking far too often; even the ranger's pet made a better tank.

When we were called back to our stronghold to fight off some Leaden Key priests, I decided that was quite enough. We stopped by Dyrwood Village before we returned to the City of Defiance, picked up a Cipher (who replaced the chanter), and hired a dwarven fighter.

We'll see how she does. I've more than half a mind to retrace our steps and see if I can find that named fighter, though. I'll have to meet up with him eventually, anyway, to hear his story.

Dyrwood Village is a little above my level. A nest of feral druids outside town proved troublesome to take out. Finishing up the City of Defiance quests will probably level the party up enough to take them out, then continue on to the ogre that's been menacing the town.

Something tells me that that ogre won't be what I'm expecting... I half expect there to be no ogre at all. But, we'll see.

It's very much in the old Baldur's Gate mode. Except without scripting...

I didn't know Pentatonix was going to be in Pitch Perfect 2! It was a total shock for me when they popped up (though apparently it was spoiled all over the Internet). I'm pretty sure anyone who's at all interested in a movie about an a capella group already knows who they are, but for the two of you who DON'T... 

Here's crazy great Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix doing a cover of Radioactive that blows Imagine Dragons away.

I saw this months ago.  It was my first exposure to Pentatonix and Imagine Dragons.  I still prefer this to the ID version.  Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling just knock this one out of the park.

+Larry I didn't go all the way around the lake; I went down by Rte 44, then up to the mansions, then over to the beach, missing the north part of the lake. I didn't see any tree stumps...

+Pete Smith Thanks :) I think it's the paddles; you can adjust the angle, and I've found the perfect angle for my stroke.

"That Dwarven Bastard" - Gina kinda laments the loss of love, and the party arrives in Baldur's Gate.

When we last left out heroes, everyone was asleep. Not entirely true; the bard had been knocked unconscious by an over-adrenalized bassoon player when she took to the stage in her kobold costume, the monk had eaten himself into a food coma, the fighter…
