MIDI Shield Arrived

After a 6 week wait, the MIDI Shield I should have purchased years ago has finally arrived! I assembled it, but unfortunately it didn’t come with any pin connectors. I hope I have some stashed away somewhere. Though, considering I have to use this shield in conjunction with a Servo Shield, I doubt I will be able to stack it on top. We shall see!

Gogo Gobo

Its May 26th, 2020, several months into lockdown. I have not done a ton in this time. Wasn’t really motivated I suppose. For my birthday I selected a bunch of ST:CCG boxes and started making decks again. I spent close to two weeks this month just working on decks and playing solo games, improving the loosing deck after each battle.

Last night I decided it was time to do something else, packed up all the cards (though my boxes have still not come – I have that to still look forward to.. but LATER) and started going through my recovery hard drive to relocate my lost lossless techno collection. I guess it just jogged some memories and some goals; After such an extended period of doing virtually nothing, I feel like tackling one of my long term goals: jump-dance Gobo-matron.

I have day dreamed about making a dancing Gobo Arduino powered invention thinger-ma-bop for a number of years now. So, Im just going to DO IT!

Lets see how long a prototype takes me. Annnnd Go Gogo Gobo!
