Practice Time with Fatal1ty

How to be PRO? Tutorial by Fatal1ty at youtube.com. (Previously uploaded with the title "Practice Time by Mr. Positivity"). The clip linked above is from Fatal1ty's segment of the I'm A Gamer episode of MTV's True Life.

You gotta practice. Practice. Practice practice practice practice. Practice. And if you're not practicing you should be practicing. So keep practicing. It's the only way you're gonna get better. It's the only way you're gonna be number 1. Number 1 in anything. You need practice practice practice.

I keep a copy of this on my hard drive and watch it whenever I need motivation. I like the part where he tells me to practice.

Shio And Five Rooms Of True Torture

Final torture [Quake3 DeFRaG movie] Final torture [Quake3 DeFRaG movie]

Final torture [Quake3 DeFRaG movie] at youtube.com.

Quake 3 Defrag map gnj-finaltorture performed by Shio. VQ3 physics. Video by xajjA, map of course by gnj. Run and video both from 2013. Content warning for flashing lights and first-person gameplay that may cause motion sickness.

Incredible run of a punishing Q3 defrag map. Fall at any point and you start over from the beginning. One of the great Quake videos of the last decade. Even ESReality likes it.

Posting because this is where I first heard Running Away by DJ Infiniti. (It's the second music track, starts at 01:52.) That's the same Infiniti whose mix of Move Over was just played in MTT 228. Every time I hear Running Away I think of Shio and gnj-finaltorture.

Website Refactoring: Articles and Notes

I've made a significant change which will hopefully make it easier for me to update this site more often. I've re-implemented traditional blog categories and grouped most existing posts into long-form "articles" and short-form "notes". This gives me a category where I can publish short pieces like photos, recommendations, links to albums, links to videos, and so on without feeling like I need to write a thousand words or whatever. (That's a pretty low bar for "long-form" writing, I know, but writing scares me.)

This matters because there are new browsing and RSS feed options available. Articles (RSS) and notes (RSS) both have their own chronological pages and feeds. The main page and main RSS feed will continue to display all posts as normal. If you're currently subscribed to the main RSS feed of this blog and still want to receive all posts then you don't have to change anything. There's also a unique (and hopefully podcatcher compatible) RSS feed of just the Movement Through Thought mixes. These different feeds and views are available so you can choose how much of my nonsense you want to read.

Think of the short-form "notes" as something like a microblog in the style of tumblr, a place where I can link videos and do other lazy posts.
