Guitar Hero Pr0n

2 comments:

I was first introduced to Guitar Hero by Brian Loube. I liked the game but I never thought that people are so serious about the game.

I found this on YouTube togday of some college kid playing expert on Guitar Hero 3 Through the Fire and Flames. Like his buddy says, it's sick. The guy's fingers are more like a machine. This kid would make a perfect piano player, if piano lessons can be this much fun for him. And why not, music notes can roll this way, too, no?

I love Yahoo! Doing a search on Yahoo Image Search proves that the acronym SML most definitely belongs to me :)

As you can see, aside from slight irregularities on Page 9 and 10, a year of image SEO is working :)

SML Thank You

Still in hospital, feeling energetic

6 comments:

I've decided to post a brief summarized update to what happened to me so you don't need to read my small bursts of tweets for my whereabouts.

A much longer post will be meticulously crafted after my return to home.

I am writing this blog post standing in in the hallway of the New York Presbyterian Hospital, on one of the computer stations that I technically should not use, but since I am not one of the cool folks with an iPhone, I will have to make do, and you will have to make stand.

I have not been feeling all that well since Tuesday last week. I thought that it was just a stomachache and I didn't think much about it. Since I was on a rather time-sensitive project, I didn't want to 'drop the ball' as a certain "K" personality might like to put it, and go for some check-up. This stomachache got a whole bit worse and by the time Friday hits, I could barely walked. I was having diarrhea all day long til eventually I sent a panic email to a very closed friend Gregory Hull (Flickr / SML Wiki) who received my email at on 2007-12-08 10am in the morning in LES and rushed over to my RAMBO (Right After the Manhattan Bridge) residence (see www.seeminglee.com/map for exact location) to help me to the nearest emergency room.

We originally got to a rather shabby hosptial, but upon which I realize that surgery is necessary, I decided to switch to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, also known as the Weill Cornell Medical College.

I had a CT scan and was determined that I had a ruptured appendicitis. Surgery commenced on Sunday around 1am. Detail on the surgery to follow on a follow up post. But the design of the OR is AMAZING! Looks even better than any movie sets I've seen.

I'm currently staying at

Rm 8-224, 8 Central
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital
525 E. 68th St.
New York, NY 10065

My direct line at the hospital is +1 212 585 7433.
My cell as you all know is +1 646 373 9008.

SML Thank You
I would like to thank the fantastic phonecalls and lots and lots of love from people at IconNicholson, including Susie Rust, Michele Lomas, Scott Heydt, Kip Voytek (via Susie), and the millions of you who are not allowed to call me because of an effective IconSpam halted by Travis Barr of Sunday Morning Mimosa

I would like to thank IconNicholson for the red flower arrangement.

I would like to thank John Frazier for the really gorgeous hand-picked flower arrangement and the oh so lovely darling phone call.

I would like to thank Jingle Blues for tracking me down on my Twitter post and navigitating his way to come see me with books in hand!

I would like to thank Susie Rust for dropping by with the orange rose bouquet last night. They bloomed today and are soooo pretty!

I would like to thank Kip Voytek for the chess strategy book for study.. though my mom accidentally transported it back home today... :(

I would like to thank Yale Alumni Magazine for featuring SML Universe on the November / December 2007 issue. I saw that blurb during my miserable stay at the hospital and it *really* made my day.

I would like to thank my mom for flying over from Hong Kong to see me. My dad is coming on December 18 I think.

I would of course like to thank Gregory Hull and my sister for medical assitance throughout the episode, which is not yet finished!

Lastly I would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and nursing aids who have been supportive and making me feel so at home here (what is particularly crazy about hospitals, as I have learned, is that farting and having gas will get a huge congratulating hug... details to come on next post.. no space no) too much verbal diarrhea here anyhow as I haven't taken any ADD meds for a week -- nor any other food for that matter..

More will be thanked as I gain more consciousness... not much moleskine'ing has been done during my adverse morphine'ing.

Will be pausing here.
Look for me again next week!

Cheers,
SML

Google Web History: See-ming Lee: Web Activity: 2005-2007 / 2007-12-04 / SML Data

Screenshot / visualization of my web activity on Google from 2005 to 2007:

Google Web History: See-ming Lee: Web Activity: 2005-2007 / 2007-12-04 / SML Data (by See-ming Lee 李思明 SML)

My hypothesis is that my Google search activity is:

1. inversely proportional to the number of production-heavy projects
2. proportional to the number of research-oriented projects

In fact, I think that it's likely that my projects would follow a heavy-search (research) start and then progressively go down the slope because I'd have to produce a lot of stuff so no time / no reason to search.

I shall find out when I map my time-sheets to this visualization :)
