Screw that plan, I just completely bailed.

But it's ok, because no one even reads this.

I don't even anything.

Sketches, Markers and nice Students

Well, it's been ANOTHER long while, as I sort of aforementioned in my previous post.
So, yeah...
Yeah, so, I have a new YouTube channel started, called OgdenFace, where (hopefully) I shall be posting my sketches and stuff to. Just random little doodles, spur of the moment type of things. I currently have one video up, though that should change quite shortly.
Speaking of doodles, my room is at the moment being subjected to much, much promarkering of random mathematical equations and the suchlike, like the equation for the graph of a loop-de-loop, and the fact that 16/64 = 1/4 when you cancel the 6s, because, y'know, that's how fractions work.

Now, the main event of this summer for myself and fellow students around both Ireland, and across the world, is going to be CTYI.
This three week long course is one of the big highlights of a CTYIzen's life, the meeting up of old friends, the making of new, the exciting and interesting learning experience...
And spar.
But it all goes so quickly, so fast!
So I've decided to try to make a blog post every day of this marvelous adventure.
I probably won't actually make another blog post until the course starts, being over a week away.
So until then, I bit you a good... Uh... Week.

Poetry Whaaaat?

*Sigh* It is the bane of a blogger's/vlogger's life to have to constantly tell their audience that they are sorry that it's been so long since their last post/video, and that they'll make more soon in the future.

But really, most of the time, they have no intention of ACTUALLY following through with this.

So instead, I'm just going to pretend that you missed me, but that you understand that someone as HUGELY important as me has little time to spend with such INSIGNIFICANT PETTY lives.

I'm sure you understand.

Besides, I have a present for you :D That's right, kids! Poetry!

"This sucks"

Hey! Who said that? About this sucking?


Hmm... Was it you?

"Dude, I'm a blog"

Huh. Right you are. Hmm... Still though, was it you?

"... It... Might have been..."

Come now, was it you?

"... Maybe."

Hmm... I suppose that's the best I'm going to get...

Anyway. Here it is; My super awesome special scoopily-skiddiedizzletastic Poetry :D
(You're welcome)

**Clears throat**


Based on John Donne's "The Flea"

Written by Ogden

John Donne had no time-frame for his poems, Miss;
He could weave his working hour around that and this.
For instance, how long it took him “The Flea” to write,
I bet you it took him longer than one night.
It seems it would have been quite ridiculous to him,
He probably would have thought us incredulously dim,
For a three stanza poem in one night to complete,
For a few arbitrary points to compete,
Surely it would take a poetic elite?

Maybe one more day isn't too much for to ask?
Then our lack of homework, we would not have to mask.
I mean, the rhyming scheme alone is difficult to fit;
One must work slowly at it, bit by bit.
The difficulty then increases with the line count,
Of which I know Donne was able, I don’t doubt;
But no one in this English class is John Donne,
He may have found writing such literature fun,
But our class are not bothered lest points are to be won.

Alas, the poem must be more complex still,
For the requirements of this assignment to fill;
Once the poem is written, the argument conceived,
One more idea from your head must be retrieved.
A name, a title for this long p-...

The Computer, silly!

Well, my friend told me to write a blog post on "The computer, silly!". So, I decided to...


As I was saying, Brian is a silly silly person. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shepherd's delight.

But seriously, I've always loved old phrases like that;
Red sky at night, shepherd's delight; red sky at morning, shepherd's delight.
Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you won't give a... luck.
Early to bed and early to rise | makes a man pretty well rested.

Also, change in goodbye. The old one just wasn't working.

Keeping up appearances

So for those of you who actually follow my blog (ie. Two people) you may have noticed that I haven't posted in ages. Well, since January 14th at least. So I decided to type up a quick post, make sure you know that I'm still alive. Oh; that was weird. My iPod, on shuffle, just started playing "Still Alive" :o Weird.
Anyway. America; New York, Boston, etc. They're damn epic. Totally worth a re-visit. Specially New York. So much to see! Ahh!
If anyone out there is still interested in it, my music still exists, in the far reaches of bandcamp. Right here. You know, if you're bothered. Or something like that.

Human Calculators?

Ok, so the other day in maths, we were doing permutations. You know, like "How many different ways can you arrange the letters in the word 'MEDIAN'?" and stuff like that.
With these questions, the Factorial is a commonly used idea, Which looks like this:
And means this:

Now, Denis, someone in my class, was sitting beside me (Slightly tautological) And he was doing a question that included factorials (Extremely tautological).

Trolls and Relationships

I'd like to start off by making a very clear point.

Well, I mean, there may be the other few trolls that will join in for the lulz, but by the word "nobody", I was referring to "no people". Trolls aren't people when they're trolling.

This YouTube user, "godhatesproddies" (which in itself is just plain rudeness, on a religious level), decides to be trollin' on all of my videos. And it's not even good trolling. It's just plain rude. If I were to troll, I'd try to seriously piss them off with what I say. This guy/girl is pissing me off because of how bad he is at it.
I mean, really, am I so bad as to not deserve a GOOD troll? I try to be modest, but I put WORK into those videos! The least you can do is  reflect that in your efforts as a troll. Really, I am truly ashamed.

On a completely different note, however, it's looking that 2012 is gonna be a pretty good year (Happy new year and all that)!
Reasons being many.

For a start, I'm as close as ever to all teh peoples in Wexford, especially one in particular ;) (more on that later). I'm also almost finished my first chiptune/8-bit album of sorts, called THE SUN; made completely and utterly on Audacity; ain't even mad. And it'll soon be available for download, for a price. :P That being said, I'm gonna give away one or two... Maybe... It depends on how nice people are. :) Also, me and my friend Brian are gonna be making a short movie for the Fresh Films Festival. Gonna be awesome :)

Now, back to my one in particular. Well, I had known her for some time now... Well over a year, at any rate. So anyway, The question was popped into our conversation, on the second last day of 2011 (Well done at 2011 for being a good year NOT.). There was a long pause (queue nervousness, anxiety, etc) When finally the little icon of the person typing came up again...
Hurry up, goddammit...
I received a very long reply (I was assuming it was one of kindness, and asking to remain friends, and the suchlike), but on reading it, it turned out... Quite the opposite.
Her search for a clever and applicable quote to the situation was fruitless, and so she just said "Hell yes".

I was sort of blown back at this stage, to be honest.
Like, REALLY blown back.
As if the computer itself had uttered a thu'um in my general direction.
But anyway, that was that, and we got to meet up the very next day :D Which was... Fun, to say the least ;)

But then there was a creepy old lady in town... **shudder**

From the looks of things, 2012 should be a good year. I mean, it's not gonna be brilliant, but then again, no year ever is. I'm just HOPING... Since it SEEMS to be starting off better... That it might be a better year than last year :)

Anyway, I should hope that I should be able to post here more often than I have been. That being said, it's still most likely be a month, if not months. Anyway.

Check out Brian's channel; I'm in his latest video, and I made the intro music!:
Here's the Bandcamp page that my music will be / is on:
And Kitty (my girlfriend)'s blog:
There's No Such Thing As Algebra
