Sam From the Future Past
I’ve been reconnecting to a lot of old things lately, projects, habits, ambitions. The past is new! It’s gold.
I use to journal, blog, post internal discussion online before wordpress or blogger or vlogging was a thing. Used to hand code pages and pages of HTMl just to tell the world I was pretty sure I was speaking to myself.
Awesomeness. I used to do this thing…
Total Trash: Sonic Youth: there it goes again
Literally, that thing, Song, band lyric. Give people a sense of where I was, what I was listening to, etc… or maybe just to remind myself. Today I modified an applescript and attached a Quickeys command and now I don’t ever have to switch applications for it to collect the variables (band and song) format them, color them and let me add the quote. So much efficiency… so I can bitch slightly more about the world, yay! 😀
I’ve been playing with Quickeys a lot of late. Spending hours on end to turn regular routines in to a few keystrokes that activate a macro that does my bidding. Last night I turned a major portion of Video Fight Club in to an automated function. Grabbing all the info from a spreadsheet the scripts create the voting poll, the blog post on craveonline and my site and compose emails to the two teams competing. What previously took me about an hour and a half, now takes ten minutes, maybe less.
I’m kind of in love with quickeys. I use it on PizzaGames and Zombies to created aggregated content blog posts at a wicked rate. In roughly 45 seconds I have a single image post with customized keywords sent off to the draft folder of my tumblr site. If only I had monkeys I could run millions of blogs on theme leaving me time to make scripts and bitch about the world.
Standing By The Sea: Husker Du: I was standing at a window, I was standing by the sea
There’s not really much more to tell on this, but I feel a great motivation to now start doing more personal blogging on my site mixed in with all the other bullshit.
