Kemurikusa

Reminded me of Kemono friends with the resurrections besides the animation style. I thought it was odd the translators chose to have Wakaba say he was human when he was saying 人 in Japanese. I don't think someone saying "I'm a person" is an odd response. Then he wasn't human later on? Was he a plant? Who wasn't a plant? Who was he building plant buildings and mountains for?

I liked all the sisters, I wish the older ones got more screen time as they were more fun. Shiro was a good bug robot and I am glad he made it to the end.

More exposition would be nice but I am also okay with just not having any. Better than giant exposition dumps.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

I have never watched any original She-Ra so I figured I would see how this Netflix Series was. I thought the shading on the face was a bit weird and Catra's overall personality was grating to me, but she was probably meant to be that way.

The world building was a bit empty as the world, Bright Moon had like 4 people living in it, why was it so hard to capture?

Robot Nerd Princess was cool to see, and was her hair her power? Or her hair was just alive? Lots of questions there.

Overall it was alright, it would be nice to see some more world building in the second series.

The original She-ra was on Netflix too so I watched the first episode. HOW RIDICULOUS ARE THESE OLD CARTOONS???? Just everything about Adam/He-man. And the cat. And its named Cringer? And what is Bow's outfit even supposed to be. AND THE VOICES. I didn't watch episode two.

Fall Anime 2018

I watched a bunch of first episodes of new fall anime with no idea what they going to be about.

Between the Sky and the Sea

Your typical space fishing anime with cute girls. I made it through the cat selfie montage but stopped when she accidently ended up in space. TOO MUCH.

Dakaichi

The art style made me suspicious but then the opening confirmed this would be a rapey BL show. Made it to the opening.

Double Decker

This one was surprisingly fun. Set in some weird steampunk/future America? It was silly and bright.

Goblin Slayer

Gratuitous to be gratuitous.

Jingai-san no Yome

Set up some completely ridiculous arranged marriage to a fluffy thing and boom credits. Why did space fishing get a 24 minute long show and this one gets 3 minutes. qq

Ms Vampire who lives in my neighborhood

Moe girls who meet vampire moe girls. And the opening was all about kissing? I'll never understand.

Radiant

Shonen black clover/fairy tale thing but the main character just has to be an idiot. Character designs are somewhat interesting.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

Ignoring the title, this main character was not an idiot for once and it was refreshing. Maybe bakemonogatarish?

SSSS Gridman

Trigger being Trigger? The backgrounds were beautifully detailed and gratuitous beautiful animation? I'll watch a couple more.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

Slime main character is pretty cute, I read a bunch on this story before. Seems to be well done.

Pulling text out of story screen shots

I looked into this project last night, and finally got a working concept tonight!

Steps of mostly failure:

  1. Look for a way to pull text from images in PHP
  2. Find stack overflow mentioning Tessarect OCR https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2024238/read-text-from-an-image-with-php
  3. Go to wrapper mentioned https://github.com/thiagoalessio/tesseract-ocr-for-php
  4. Not understanding how it worked at all, I added it to my Laravel project through composer, but that didn't work.
  5. I then downloaded it on my mac through homebrew, this took a long time
  6. Decided to move this process to my windows box with more power
  7. Now late Thursday night
  8. Install Chocolatey package manager for windows through power shell
  9. Install the recommended windows package for tesseract
  10. Try to boot up my local xampp install, its completey broken.
  11. Abandon PHP, look for node package.
  12. There is one! http://tesseract.projectnaptha.com/
  13. Create a new project folder and install it
  14. Can't remember how to create projects from scratch in node, eventually remember how to run just the file name.
  15. Download example image, run test code, ERROR! Eng not found.
  16. Google around, no luck, just look through recent github issues and bingo! https://github.com/naptha/tesseract.js/issues/194
  17. Add in missing file
  18. rerun AND IT READS ENGLISH!!!
  19. Okay lets try Japanese, change language to Jpn, get language file
  20. Run and its completely garbled
  21. Move to browser as ghetto windows node shell probably can't handle Japanese font
  22. Some success but mostly garbled result!
  23. Crop picture so it's just the text
  24. Rerun - IT WORKS O M G

I can't believe I got it working! It was probably 3 hours of messing around over two nights, switching to JavaScript was the solution all along!

Next step is to start automating things, image cropping, file running, and then saving the text!

A Place Further than the Universe - Episode 1

A lot of people were saying this was a great show so I thought I would check it out. The first episode had a Walter Mitty vibe which I really liked. Always good to be inspired to go do things! The animation was also beautiful and the backgrounds and settings made it seem like an actual place in Japan, even though I didn't see an exact city name.

Foamsmith 2: How to Forge Foam Weapons by Bill Doran

I have 4 days left to finish these swords and they are in the same state they were like 4 weeks ago. Typical progress. I needed to figure out how to glue/attach all these foam pieces today so I finally picked up Bill Doran's foamsmithing book to see better information on how to do that.

He nicely lists all the materials but is using saws for cleaning off the textured edge of the foam and cutting things, which is great if you have a saw. But I do not have saws!

20 Minutes into Working With Foam and I Almost Slice Off Half My Thumb

Right. I should have known this was going to happen. I was working slowly and carefully with the foam! I knew that the knife can dull from the foam and stick and get dangerous! But doing a slow type skinning procedure seemed to be working well for removing the textured surface...until the knife went into my left thumb.

Although probably one of the worse self inflicted injuries I have gotten, it stopped bleeding pretty quickly and I was able to use a bandaid to hold it together, no stitches needed! Hopefully it scabs itself over pretty quickly and I can get back to having two thumbs again.

Watched this again with Kater, I had never watched the last three episodes when it was airing. I kind of regret watching them, it was a better show without seeing those final epsiodes.

JJ, my cousin, how did you lose your shit that badly?!?! And Yurio's kiss and cry scene wasn't even shown?! And then it just ends like that?!?!? Like what?! For the same routines they showed over and over again, they could have cut some of that down and added 15 minutes more content to the finale that it needed. Everything just seemed so rushed!

    Programming - London Trip Scrapbook

    Writing Up My Travel Journal

    When I was going through my closet for moving I found my shoebox full of London things I had kept. I had always wanted to make a scrapbook with the things but I was terrible at finishing scrapbooks and then you had to actually physically hold the scrapbook to look at it so why not create a digital one!

    I have not figured out where this project will live or how exactly I will do it but my first step is writing up my journal I kept of my London and Paris trip in 2003. I'm five pages in so far and it has involved a lot of wandering and being lost. I want to figure out the path we took and take pictures of all the random stuff I have saved, in the end creating some fun scrollytelling/data story webpage

    Too Many Mats

    So those mats I bought because I didn't have enough? I had enough. I had two pieces left from the original four! I only used two pieces to create 90% of two dreadblades! So now I have too many mat mats!

    With the new mats though, I traced out the pattern for four inner gold raised sections. I was able to get them all from one mat with a 1/4ish of the mat left over. I did not learn my sharpie lesson though and forgot to let the marker dry. Blue hands it was!

    Had some unplanned free time today as tutoring ended early, Harbor Frieght was nearby so I stopped to get some more mats for my sword! With the four original squares I had bought I was able to make about 90% of a Dreadblade so I purchased two more, one for the other sword and then one more for finishing off the pices + hilt mats

    I couldn't find any relevant coupons but the mats were $9 a piece which isn't bad at all. There were a TON of people there for almost 1pm on a Thursday though!

    Foam testing and bending Pvc!

    Tags: Foam

    what happens with html?

    Cut the foam out for the gold layer to check on the thickness, it looks like it will work well! I will probaby need to figure out some way to uniformly taper everything -> need to investigate that

    For the PVC structure/removeable handle, the hole in the sword prevented it from going straight through. Trevor suggested bending it and with my heat gun and a few minutes I was able to easily bend the PVC! And it stayed their nicely. Eman suggested flattening it to make it thinner and stronger, that will be the next step!

    My Macbook's keyboard deicded to all the way break on Tuesday night and I realized just HOW much time I spent on it. Working on projects, writing, reading, wasting reddit time, all on the Macbook! Even when I took breaks from my phone in Japan and NY I STILL had the Macbook there.

    It's still mostly useable with an external keyboard and wireless mouse but I'm about to not have it at all for two days, What will I do???? Can I handle it???? I should be able to, being so depedant on one object I can break easily is not good.
