CONTENTCON 014

CONTENT CON!!

What IS ContentCon?

We have a content team at my workplace, and we basically create all of the content for the apps that our company makes.  Most of us are all around Northern California, but we also have a New Yorker and a fellow from Japan.  This week, we all came in and gathered together for the first time.

w00t!

Having been on all types of teams before, from awesome and supportive to distrustful and sabotaging, I appreciate the fact that I love my content team so much.  They are the smart, nice, funny, silly, awesome people I had hoped to find.

Wednesday was basically us working together all day, having dinner (did I have a burger that had chili and a hot dog on it?  Yes, yes I did.  NAILED IT).  I then hung out with the NYer and Japaner who were staying together.

At around 11pm, I conquered a first.

I went to a club.

Cello Love - ZZ Ward's Last Love Song


Because I liked this song so much and it got stuck in my head for so long, I thought I'd do a cello arrangement.

However, there were some problems due to the fact that my PC laptop isn't exactly a laptop anymore.  Since the top isn't completely attached to the lap part anymore, I had to plug the display into my tv in order to edit.  Any little jiggle meant the picture would cut out.

Because of this, I thought I'd use my Mac to do the sound editing part.  The only "problem" is that it sounds a lot different on my Mac than my PC, so when I exported the sound file and sent it to my PC, it was very very different.

Hmmm.

Conundrum.



Because of this, I had to play with my sound a few times and export it a few times.  Eventually I just gave up, though.

Bah!

Humbug!

Also, editing the video on my tv was surprisingly difficult!

It's time for a new PC laptop, really.  I will buy one in the next few weeks, I suspect.

My Mac is my laptop for work, and I'd like to keep them separated.  Also, after two months of working on a Mac I have to tell ya....I don't get the hype.  I mean, it's better at some things than my PC, but not enough to justify the price difference between the two (even though I didn't actually pay for the Mac).  Even if they were the same price, however, I'd choose a PC for non-work related things.

Okay.

Off topic.

Here's the vid:





***EDIT**

You guys....ZZ Ward favorited my tweet and responded to it :)

Huzzah!

Workaholic = Boring Naoko

I have old lady tendencies to begin with, but constantly working has made me even more boring than normal.

Well.

Except.

Today I got proposed to.

By a stranger.

While walking to Safeway.
