Nerd Out is a mobile nerd event calendar application available for download on Apple and Android devices. Discover nerd inspired events in an easily accessible calendar. Listing events like Comic Con, Lightsaber Battles, Geeks Who Drink, Tabletop gaming, Screenings, Trivia & more!

So on a random thought I thought I’d write to them and see if I can join up and represent Oregon. A few emails back and forth, I’m now a member of the Nerd Out crew :). Portland is the only city in Oregon currently listed on the app, I’m hoping that will change soon. I’ll be listing events from all over Oregon, seeings how I live in Lebanon, Or. myself. ALSO! As part of being with the Nerd Out crew I got this cool little shirt!!

Drawing On My Note 3

I have to say I love my phone. I believe the Samsung Note 3 is everything I can ask for I a “smartphone”. I like the drawing features that it came with and with the stylist it makes things much easier to use with other applications. One of the main applications I use for drawng is SketchBook Pro for Galaxy that came pre-installed on the Note 3. Another one that I use that was previously downloaded for my nexus 7 tablet, is Adobe Photoshop Touch for Android.

Although SketchBook for Galaxy is mainly for the Note 3. They do have on Google Play SketchBook Pro for sale that is basically the same app, I think it cost $4.99.

Now with Adobe Photoshop Touch I bought this mainly for my nexus 7. But it works so much better on N3. It cost $14.99 at the time and personally I think it was well with the money.

They do have a free version called Photoshop Express and basically has photo filters with minor editing tools. Think Instagram with out upload and there you go. I here are some pictures I’ve been working on with these applications, SketchBook and Adobe Photoshop.

I really like the affects and the free drawing style features for both apps. I’m sure I’ll be doing more as time goes on. Now please keep in mind that this in no way will replace the main Adobe PS program on a PC or Apple.  It’s just a tool for when you are on the good. 

Times Are Hard. But Things Are Looking Up

So it’s 3am, just finished Highlander (greatest movie ever!) and I realized I haven’t written a “real”post in over two weeks. Plus it doesn’t help the interweb was out for a week. The living pay check to check is getting old. I mean I know things are hard for people now a days, jobs are hard to come by, specially in my area of Oregon. But I also look at what I have and feel some what blessed/lucky for what I have. I could be out on the streets with a cardboard sign asking for a hand out.
I have a roof over my head, my kids are healthy with full tummies and clean clothes. Also can’t forget the fat cat (who turned 8 this last month.) But that doesn’t stop me from wanting more, wanting to better myself/life. That brings me into the second week.
I did get the interweb back on and I also asked my girlfriend to move in with me! So we’ve been moving everything in this past week/weekend, I think we’re just about done. Yay! I’m hoping this marks a time for change for the both of us. I know it’s not easy going into a relationship with someone who has kids. Let alone move in with them haha. But things work, we’ve known each other for awhile now and things are just relaxed between us. Plus we work together to meet our goals! Wait what!? Who does that now a days? It’s also nice to see the kids happy 🙂 about everything.
I do have a lot of posts I’ve been planning and setting to the side. Just with everything going on, I haven’t had a moment to myself to sit down and write everything out. I know we have a tabletop night coming up. I hope so, rather over due for one (Care-bear! Make it happen! I know you’re reading this haha)
Off topic, I found this at the store the other day… I had a good laugh at this haha, someone not paying attention or was it just pure laziness?

But at any rate, things are on the up from what they were a year ago. I just hope they keep going that way. At times I feel bad, I’m not use to having someone wanting to help me. So use to doing everything myself, specially when it comes to the kids.
Thanks for reading, again sorry for a random little posts. I have more coming tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Random TableTop Night

So we had a random little TableTop night at my girlfriend”s parent’s place. Started off with Small World, I picked Wealthy Halfings and made a nice little corner for myself on the map. So after 3 rounds flipped them and took Dragon Master Barbarians and took out the Amazons and a few Leprechauns (just because they’re magically delicious!). So once I couldn’t do anymore damage with the Barbarians, I picked up the Commando Pygmies… Yes I said Commando Pygmies… This was the last round of the game figured go out with a bang haha. For those who don’t know what Small World is: “inhabited by a zany cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs, and even humans, who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth. Picking the right combination from the 14 different fantasy races and 20 unique special powers, players rush to expand their empires – often at the expense of weaker neighbors. Yet they must also know when to push their own over-extended civilization into decline and ride a new one to victory!” -Description from Game’s website http://www.daysofwonder.com/smallworld, check it out sometime!

Then after Small World we played a round of Seven Wonders and then a around of Ticket To Ride. Not a bad little night of gaming!

On a side note: I also got Ticket To Ride off the Google Play Store. It runs great on my Nexus 7, it’s smooth no lag of any kind. I’ve played Ticket To Ride on iPad before playing on Android and I like them both. I really can’t tell the differences between the two, aside from one being on 9.7″ display and the other being 7″ display. The cost for the app on Google Play was $6.99, something with the App Store. I know in some cases the iPad came with Ticket To Ride for free, so bonus for those who got it!!
