I'm now going to a vocational technical school, and I'm hoping to get into a graphic design class and a computer programming class.  School this year is great, both in academics and in shop.

I've been pushing out dubstep mixes as much as possible, but sometimes I just don't get the chance.

I wish more people would read these.  Or at least tell me why you aren't reading these.

So, like many people in my school, I'm quite tired of all the work.  Oh well.

My next dubstep mix for June is already being made.  I'm at least having fun with that.

I've got a lot of special effects projects that I need to get done before I upgrade to Windows 8.

Well, today god damn sucked, and tomorrow won't be any better.  I'm tired, got a bit of a cold, and have the most boring French class imaginable.  The economy sucks.  The president is no better.  My friends are being bullied.  I'm being asked help from them (which isn't all that bad, but the kids who are bullying him also bullied me in the past, and now I'm friggin' pissed at the bullies), and now I might get caught up in  the middle of it.  I have a social studies project due in a day that I'm barely finished with.  I swear, I must have sleep apnea or something, because I get little or no sleep at all at night.  I've tried night lights, I've tried unplugging my clock, I've refused to take drugs that help you sleep, and I've even counted fricking sheep.  This sucks.  Then, on top of all that, I have MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) tomorrow, meaning that I actually can't sleep in class (wow that's abnormal), so that's gonna suck.  And THEN, I have to deal with a camping/hiking trip with the Boyscouts, and it's cold, so that will also suck.  Preperations for that will suck.  My dad's the scoutmaster, so I can't just not go, and that sucks.

Everything sucks.

I can't find any good songs for my next dubstep mix, so that sucks.  I'm low on tissues, so that sucks.  Get it?  Life SUCKS.  And now I need to get the "ten essentials" for the hiking trip for our troop meeting tonight.

So, here's what would make this world perfect for me right now:  A bowl of chocolate ice cream, nothing special, just ice cream.  Get rid of damn MCAS.  That'd be a plus.  Learn C++ coding already.  I wanna make a game or something.  Or maybe a guy giving Apple the finger.  (that's another thing that sucks.  Apple has got to stop patenting polygons and calling them the "personal property of Apple and its consumers.")  I want there to be a new president.  A republican, perhaps.  Or maybe I'll move to Canada...  Maybe not.  I want to finish the neverending eighth grade.  I want the economy to be fixed.  I want gas prices to go down.  I want free bananas (seriously, charging people for things that you pull out of a tree?).  I want a lot of things.  Hope is something that I have plenty of.  But with hope comes fear, like it or not.  Too much hope can lead to people doing bad things to reach their hopes/goals.  Too little hope makes fear the stronger emotion, therefor resulting in societal corruption.  And let me tell you, societal corruption is not something that you would want to happen.  Hate to be philosopher Corbin over here, but whatever.  Just typing what comes to mind.  

I'm gonna take a minute to drink some Coke Zero.

Mmm.  That's some good crap right there.


Looks like I won't be getting a new laptop anytime soon.  No good ones for any decent prices, so I'll wait.

Now, for the one peice of good news that I have today.  Tomorrow, Bioshock Infinite comes out.  It's gonna be damn awesome.  I'm excited.  Woo hoo.  Yay.  Can you tell that I'm excited?  Guess what, I'll even put a smiley face to make myself feel more enthused.  ',:^ |  There we go.  Much better.  I guess.  But I really am quite excited.  Nobody reads these blogs, so I might as well just type whatever the hell I want.

That's all I've got for today.  Email me any questions at [email protected]

Sup, Broski? So, I'm gonna start calling my audience "Rocers," pronounced " Rockers." You know, just take the n"Nib" off of "Nibroc" and make it a present-tence noun. Simple enough.

      So, I'm trying out the demo of FL Studio. It's much more professional than Acoustica's Mixcraft, and opens up the MIDI controls beyond my curent understanding. No tutorials, though; I'd like to learn on my own how to use the program. Until I figure it out, however, I'll be using Mixcraft. It's not bad for what it does, but I need a better MIDI system so that I can make better drum loops and even more intense bass drops.

      In other news, you can probably see that I'm adding even more stuff to my site, such as new copyright information, a new navigation bar at the bottom of the home page, and a new gradient-type background.

      Also, I will soon be making a new GMail account specifically for questions and answers. Even ask me to do an After Effects or Photoshop tutorial. I'll be posting the address in the "Contact Us" page of this site. Really, thouh, ask me anything, as long as it is a legitimate question orcomment that you wouldn't mind me reading on a show on YouTube. Let me know what name you want me to call you, or if you want me to say that the message was sent anonymously.

BOOK RECCOMENDATION! I recently read the amazing book called "Looking for Alaska" By John Green. It's a really great read, involving last words, new friends, hot girls, complete morons, hot girls dying, drama, romance, knowledge, humor, and so on. Be advised that fhere are alcoholic themes, use of tobbacco, sex, and swearing involved in the book. I reccomend this book to middle schoolers and high-schoolers.

That is all.

Here's what I think about in math class.

Hey, the principal just walked past the door.  I wonder what he's...  Wait a second.  A principal is a princi who is the pal of somebody.  If the princi is a pal, then who's pal is he/she?  Or is it the Princi's pal?  And what is a princi? A German king or something? But Germany does not have a king, but rather a president or something... But how was the word "President" thought of? A man and a woman walk into a tavern in Ireland and say, "Ruler=President in some parts of the world," resulting in a new equasion such as, "r=pw" where R=Ruler of a country, P=president, and w=part of the world.  That equation results in this explanation:  The ruler (R) is equal to a president (P) in (W) part of the world.



Get it?

Got it?


The end.

Hello. So, I haven't posted much in a while. This is probably because I'm still getting used to my new Nook Color that I got for christmas. I really love this thing. I also got a new chair for my desk, a new chassis fan for my computer, and a kick-ass new knife.

I joined Deviant Art!  Click here to visit mah wundurful pickshur galeree...  I mean, uh...  *spellchecker slaps me in face*

That slap from the spellchecker may have hurt, but it did not keep me from finding this EPIC Deviation by a great artist named ~THECAL15.  Here's a link to the pic:  Seriously, spam his +Watch button so that you can see even moar uv hizz grate pickshurzz.  *Spellchecker explodes*  

There we go.

That's better.

No more dictionary.


Anyway, to all of you deviant little folks out there deviating the deviant network of deviations, happy doodles.  And may the force of gravity always keep you on the ground, but let it never keep you from blowing up your spellchecker.

That is all.

I was gonna make a dubstep joke, but I guess I'll just drop it.


Hey, guys, girls, and...  ...other...

  So, where to begin...


        I'm writing a book.

          And adding a bigger indent for each line in this post.

            The book is called, "Keen Eye," and in a nutshell - The 13 year old boy, Mark, is called "Keen" for one particular reason: when he was born in the year 2102, the doctor spilled an experimental acid on him that extends your hearing , seeing and reaction abilities to their maximum potential. This helps him out thirteen years later when he and his friends need to survive in the America that had a massive break-out from the largest prison in north america. They lean to shoot and defend themselves as a team, and as Keen uses his ability to react to things and notice things more quickly than usual, they must find out what the prisoners are killing adults and taking children alive for, and how they can be stopped. Lots of action, adventure, and a bit of humor involved, and mainly meant for scifi and action fans to read and enjoy.

                This book was started about two years ago, and I've been working on it on and off over the months.  I may even get the book published some day.  I've already got a cover photo, hopefully you can see it here:

If you can't see it above, it's also in the "Photo Gallery" section of my site.

I'm starting back up on Lets Plays, so be on the lookout for minecraft playthroughs on my YouTube channel.

About that A.I. called Martello - He is, as he stated in his little message, an Artificial Intelligence here at my site.  He actually does run things when I'm gone, so I guess you could call him the "Maintenance Crew".  The A.I. on my watch is called, "Jenny."  She is my task manager, if you will, who keeps track of times and dates, and the events that follow those times.  She is kinda' like my personal assistant, only she is not just assisting me, but she can also process and read out events for other people, as well.  No A.I. in my glasses, however - YET.  Fiction is fun, and yes, I know all this stuff is fake and made-up, but hey, at least I'm not a friggin' pony addict.  Or whatever.

The Boy Scouts and I camped out last night, and being in northeastern United States, we were a little (a LOT) cold at around three o'clock in the morning.  We had a turkey dinner thing earlier in the night on Saturday, but I didn't eat any turkey - I hate turkey - so, instead of turkey and mashed potatoes and corn and squash (ewww squashy) and gravy and stuffing, I had Chicken Tenders and French Fries (Le Frites brand... or something.) and catsup or ketchup or however you actually spell it.  Yummy, but fattening.  When we left the town's Grange Hall, where we had the dinner, we went back to camp, where I jogged around to try and burn off some of the seven hundred calories I'd injested just an hour earlier.  We also played with pyrotechnics and launched off some rockets, which exploded in mid-flight and deployed their parachutes for a soft landing.  The next morning, after I found myself missing a foot (it was still really fricking cold), we packed up and left.  Simple as that.  But we only went home for a few minutes before leaving with my friend Owen to go to a gun show to get some stuff like gun lube, a firing pin for an M4, and a few knives, both for home use and for boyscout use.  I got a nice Marines spring-assist knife, and Owen got two of the same types of knives (not the same as mine), one for him and one for his 10-year-old brother.  He also got a ka-bar, if I spelled that correctly.  Then we left for home and napped.  Him in his bed at his house, me on my bed at my house.  When I awoke, I read the book, "Little Brother" for a while and then headed downstairs, where I uploaded one minecraft lets play and then filmed and composed another one, which is rendering as I type.  The new let's plays are gonna be around forty to sixty minutes long, so get comfy before you watch.

The new Dubstep song is being held off for a while, so don't expect to see a video for that anytime soon.  I still need a name for it.

Off to shower and sleep.

Hey guys, just testing this out on my phone. I made a quick little picture to test out Photoshop CS6. It came out pretty good, and you can see it on the "photo gallery section of this site. I used a tutorial on YouTube, and changed things up a little with the lights. Nibroc99 signing off.

Hey guys, Nibroc99 here.

Today I figured that I would install Adobe Master Collection CS6 [because I can]  onto my computer.  Probably gonna switch over to Windows 8, as well.  I'm going to make a virtual machine version of Windows 8 first, just to try it out.  If I like it enough, I'll make the switch.  If not, then I'll need to trash the VM and stay on Windows 7.  Speaking of operationg systems, NOS is still being developed, and I might even make a Flash script download and make it fully-functional.  Then, it will be out of the Alpha testing stage and move into Beta, where the Forums section of my site will be open to people wanting to give me feedback and suggestions.  Any advice will be helpful, and if I get into coding in high school, then I might even be able to design and create the whole OS and make it an actual OS and not just a Flash file.

I'm just finishing up a new song in "Technology, Analog Style" and I'm getting ideas to name it.  Suggestions will be considered before the date of 11/11/2012 (for you non-nerds, that's November eleventh [11th] 2012), so don't be afraid to e-mail me and name the subject of the e-mail Song Name Suggestion.  Please.  Thank you.

I'm gonna start to make a new video outro, and when I'm done, I'll put it at the end of my new vlog.  I hope that it is at least slightly enjoyable.  Lots of work will be put into this!

Well, to start off today's post, I want to thank you for actually reading my blog, even while it is in its toddler stage.  It really means a lot to me when I see that there are other people out there who are actually paying attention to the little, unpopular shadows in the corner of the internet, who have much potential, but not any way of truely exerting the potential into kinetic and putting our abilities to use.  As the number of views and members slowly rise, month by month, my hopes get just a little bit higher, and my darkness of a public standing slowly becomes a slightly warmer, brighter ember that will eventually ignite into a big, blazing fire.  Just trying to use metaphors to express my thoughts.

Now onto the more exciting stuff.  I'm sorry that I haven't been posting any videos recently, but with Boyscouts, school, and swim class,  and not even gonna metion the homework (because there practically is none), my hobby has come to a practical halt.  I now have NO time for filming, NO time for editing, and god forbid, no time for rendering the edited film.  We're talking a forty-second-long clip that takes three hours of editing, half-an-hour of trying to set up the camera equipment before the editing, and almost THIRTEEN HOURS of rendering.  Then, testing the clip, and making sure everything lined up correctly, and if there is even a bit of a fault, I need to edit that error, log it so I don't make the same mistake twice, and then re-render it, and wait another thirteen hours, and watch it again.  This time, I compare the two videos before fixing the error and after, let my computer lag out for a few minutes, and choose which one I like the most - and more importantly, which one I think YOU, the viewer, would like more.  Then I post it to YouTube and wait about thirty minutes more, and watch it one more time, just to be sure.  Then, I think of more ideas while watching the views on that video rise one at a time, and hope for comments and likes.  But then some idiot usually comes along and dislikes it and says, "It wuz baad cuz i dun think it luk reel enuff."  And then I get either slightly depressed, or I add another couple pounds to the boiler room inside of me, where I keep all of my deepest hatred and anger, just to let it sit there and linger, while slowly boiling away.  See what I'm saying?  I hope you do, because if not, then I must be completely insane...  Which would make sense, considering all of the variables involved in this life-long equation.  Anyway, all that work adds up to about a day and a half,  including lunch, dinner, sleep, and occasional exercise, if the work were to be done in a timely manner, which I can usually keep up with.  But at the current time with the current conditions, I've stopped mass producing and swapped to reserve power.

Halo 4 is AWESOME.  Beat the Campaign on Easy and Normal difficulties, and working on Heroic.  Difficult.  Frustrating.  Worth it.

I'm working on concepts for NOS [Nibroc99 Operating System] for Desktop.  The [Home Screen] is what I'm working on, and I'll be posting concept art of what I've got done so far once I put everything in it's place and create some desktop icons, because you can't have a desktop with no icons!  I will also be making concept art of another program I came up with, called [NC99CS] (Nibroc99 Communication System), which I actually might be able to make if I can get into the right sorta' classes when I get into high school.  Wish me good luck!  Note to self:  Gotta make a concept of the N-Menu.  Can't forget the music and video players, either.

Just finished reading the book, "Paper Towns," by John Green.  Really great book - kinda sad the main characters don't die or anything crazy like that, but whatever.  Great book anyway.

Turns out the vlog saved in QUICKTIME ANIMATION FORMAT instead of  H.264 720 @ 30P.  Took up freaking 26 GIGABYTES of my 500 GB hard-drive.  [DELETED.]

Need more RAM - Hopefully I'll get a few sticks for Christmas.  Windows 7 is only using 3.5 GB out of 4 GB, and I diagnosed the problem in the BIOS (ASUS P5KPL-CM Motherboard BIOS revision 17), it turned out to be my ATI Radeon Graphics Card taking up the extra 512 MBs of RAM.  I know it's kinda' normal for the Random Access Memory to be Randomly Accessed, but I mean, the Catylist Control Center could have at least put up a popup or something for me to be notified.

Gonna add a bit of a BLINK to my usual video intro, with the normal-looking eye (not the one that's all green and robotic and stuff).  Basically I'm gonna make the eye blink in the middle of the intro.  It already opens at the beginning, but one is never enough.

I've been wondering - why isn't there any school on November 6th?  I mean, I'm not skipping school just for Halo 4 (although it would be SOO worth it), but the school has some sort of a teacher thingy going on...  And it's on a Tuesday.  A TUESDAY.  I mean, what the hell are they doing, exactly, on a Tuesday, in the middle of the week, randomly saying, "Hey, let's have some sort of teacher thing and see if the students understand what we're doing without a school day on a Tuesday afternoon, while Halo fans get to brag to Call of Duty fans about how there's no school on their favorite day of the year, and the CoD fans will be like, 'WHAT THE FU...?!'  and we'll be all like, 'HAHA U NO COD GAEM ON DIZ NO SKOLL DAE!'  They will be quite thrilled!"  It'd be interesting if they really said that and then made up some special name for it, like, "Teacher/Faculty Negation Handling Training Day," or "Teacher's day of NOT Being Teachers," or something like that.

That brings me to the conclusion that not only is there something going on with the teachers, but they really ARE thinking about us...  No. Wait. That's impossible.  I guess.  I still want to be smart and wise and intelligent and what-not, but I still don't want to do all of the work that comes with trying to be smart, wise and intelligent all at the same time.

I'm looking into making a Blackberry app for my YouTube channel, and I'll be linking this blog to it (if I can...  I hope I can.) and put my latest three videos on there, as well.

Thunder and lightning is going on outside.  If it were inside, then, well...  You know.  I'd be kinda' screwed.

Finished rendering my latest vlog, and I'm gonna check it over to make sure I did everything right.  Posting it tonight if the render was successful.

I bought Trials Evolution for the X-Box 360.  Can't wait for Halo 4, and there is NO SCHOOL on the day it comes out.  24 hour shipping order has been placed on one of the last limited edition copies of the game.  I'm kanda' disappointed in 343 Industries for not having a Legendary Edition...  But hey.  It's Halo, so what are you gonna do, file a complaint?

No X-Box Live Gold yet...  Gotta renew it.  Hopefully getting a card for another year of live for Christmas, unless I can think of anything better.  Christmas is still a ways away, though, so I have time to think.

Speaking of thinking, I have been trying to exersise my brain (and body, but whatever.) by thinking about things like paradoxes, math equasions, and really anything else that might come to you as confusing.  I need to work on decoding things, as well.  Been learning binary coding.  I'm a little bad at it, but I'm working on it.  Binary is pretty easy...  Need something more challenging.  Like CSS, HTTP, Flash, "4" (whatever the hell that is; I think it is a gaming code or something...  I'll keep you all posted about that.), and anything else I can find.

I am really enjoying venting my thoughts on this blog.  Easier than trying to think of a way to just throw it onto the main part of the site.  One thing, though.  Some of my thoughts are...  Well, for a lack of a better word, confusing.  I hope it's not too confusing for my fellow viewers.

I need to send out an e-mail update.  Haven't done that in almost a year.  I'm actually going to do that tomorrow, just in my pass time.

I've been reading a book called Paper Towns, by John Green.  Great book.  Recommended to me by my English teacher, Mr. Andree.  Thanks a bunch, Mr. Andree!
