Officially Dead

If there’s anyone following my posts on this blog, I’m coming here today to announce that this blog is officially dead. It’s not that I won’t be posting anymore. It’s just that, once again, I’m moving to another blog. Furthermore, this isn’t the last post in this blog. The last will contain the new address of my new blog :)

So, stay tunned to the new announcement that hopefully I’ll be posting soon.

Random thought #6

Sometimes I feel like I really changed (in some aspects and extents, and for good), but people don’t realize it and everything stays the same (English Summer Rain, from Placebo). Well, since such change was “for good”, I try not to care so much about people’s mind status quo.

Os Mutantes

Yes, for those who know they, I’m talking about music once again.

My last addiction so far. Psychedelic music (brazilian psychedelic one, I mean). Os Mutantes represent nicely this genre. I advice Tecnicolor for it being sung in English (almost all songs).

Random thought #3

Keeping focused is the key to succeed in on going tasks. Maybe I have ADD (it’s a good excuse uh?) or I’m just a lazy person (the most probable answer). Anyways, I lost my previous focus and decided to write this quick random thought.

Now, trying to regain my focus back!

Infinite Looping?

I know that is not true. One day I’ll stop hearing this song, even if that day is the day I die, or became deaf, or else.

I am talking about Dancing Behind My Eyelids, from múm. Just hear for yourself (this is a fan video, so focus on the song):

Well, my profile says that I listened to such song 120 times (by the time of this writing).This happened onlylast week, and i think this number will jump to about 200 or so.

It’s a dumb music indeed with dumb lyrics, but I like it anyway.

Random thought #2

Maybe I’m the strongest person I’ve ever “met”. So much thoughts running through my mind. What I’ve been through so far (The Simpsons Movie anyone?) mixed with mental condition (in a matter of physical and emotional states).

Fortunately, I’m not that much susceptible to what others say. However, it’s kinda obvious  (at least for me) that I tend to act different when people can convince me that their point is correct. Definitely not that much with regard to what others do. For an example, drug addiction could easily be part of my life (fortunately it is not). This just reminds me that having a minimum of intelligence is a bless.

Point-based Rendering Technique

Today morning was my seminar about an overview of the Point-based Rendering technique. Bellow are the slides used during presentation (in Portuguese).

Random thought #1

Why do people need to believe in something? Is it like such a motivation to keep going on? And I’m not talking about religion or god specifically.

That’s what I commonly see throughout the days. That something, I guess it is like a goal. I personally believe in those ‘somethings’. Maybe, once again, I’m generalizing my “mental condition” (this phrase just reminds me of one South Park episode).

Happy Easter

For those who believe or not in God, Jesus and stuff (I personally don’t believe in such things, but since wishing people a good time doesn’t hurt anyone…), have a Happy Easter!
A nice picture from South Park from the episode Fantastic Easter Special, and the song sung by Randy Marsh (Stan’s dad):

In my Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon it, I’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.

Easter Bunny

South Park is loads funny!
