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.
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
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
Hey all, just a quick note to say that I've re-uploaded the 2017 and
2018 demoscene / tracker music mixes I performed for MTT on
aNONradio. As of this post five such mixes are now available for
download on this website:
- MTT 043 / Demosong 2017/12/22
- MTT 095 / Beyond Reality 2018/12/21
- MTT 147 / Pattern Repeat 2019/12/23
- MTT 148 / Backwards & Forwards 2019/12/27
- MTT 200 / New Note Action 2020/12/24
These particular mixes are important to me so I'll keep them up as long
as I can. Please forgive the many mixing mistakes in them and enjoy.
A couple of things have prompted me to re-evaluate how I distribute
recorded mixes on this website.
First, I stopped broadcasting on aNONradio a few weeks ago.
Since I'm no longer a contributing member there, I believe it's unfair
for me to link to files in aNONradio's archives. (And those
files could disappear at any time - whenever the admins decide they
need the disk space, basically). I'm going to have to host my own
files from now on.
Second, 189 mixes (200 soon) is too many to keep available
all at once, in my opinion. Right now it's 15 gigs of mp3 data.
That's not an amount of data I can afford to serve, given my current
hosting and money situation.
So here's my plan:
each new episode of Movement Through Thought will be available as
a downloadable file hosted on this website for one year.
I'll remove old files as I add new ones. The tracklist blog posts will
remain up. Old mixes that I think are significant I'll keep available
as downloads indefinitely, no more than a couple for each broadcast year.
I'll tag posts with audio download to hopefully make them
easier to find. Recordings uploaded to mixcloud will remain there
for as long as mixcloud keeps them.
I do still have all these files, so if there's a specific mix you want
that isn't available on this website send me an e-mail and
I'll try to get it to you.
That's where I'm at. This seems like a reasonable system to me, a good
middle ground. I hope it works out.
Notebook 4 full and ready for storage.
Show notes for MTT and Logical Aggression plus some personal notes
covering 2018/06 thru 2020/08.

Necrotech by K.C. Alexander. Angry Robot Books, 2016.
Nanoshock by K.C. Alexander. Angry Robot Books, 2017.
Filthy, angry, and a lot of fun. "Profane & Proud" is written on the back of
Nanoshock, and they mean it. Reads like a great Cyberpunk 2020
campaign. That's maybe unfair - there's a lot more going on in these books than
in your average game of CP2020 - but it's the comparison that immediately comes
I'm a fan.
Posting because I've just started Nanoshock.
The TV announcer voice says: And now: Tron. Starring Jeff Bridges and
Taped off TV - Fox 49 KPDX - some time
in 1995. (There's an advertisement for the Jerky Boys
movie during one of the commercial breaks, which conveniently dates the
broadcast). The screenshots you see here are of an x264 (CRF 23) digital
recording of an EP Mode VHS tape. I wonder how many generations down the line
This is how I've always watched Tron.
