Denny’s Midnight Concoction


French Fries

So tonight instead of taking the time to study, and sleep to be well rested for another day of academic studies I found myself in a much darker place. By that I mean it was dark outside, but there were lights inside. An old friend of mine was back in town some rad friends and I met up with him at the pool hall to rejoice in his temporarily triumphant return. Now although we hung out for a fair amount of time this wasn’t enough to satiate our hunger for companionship, and also food.

So although my old friend with his new fiance at his side had abandoned us to take care of his new born son(who can blame him) we decided to journey in a manner fitting a lord of the rings movie. Except in this particular scenario there was no volcano of doom, or ring of power, or even hobbits. What we did have was a destination, and that destination was one of the few sit down restaurant that will take people in at midnight, Denny’s. This journey was like none other, we traveled in carriages made of plastic and steel with the power of over a hundred horses; some people call these devices cars. It was in these cars that we braved the perils of traffic lights and an almost 10 minute journey from the pool hall.

After finally reaching our destination we were greeted warmly by the staff and given a new challenge, to navigate the plethora of breakfast, lunch, and dinner foods that their menu’s contain. Having eaten here before I was well aware of how delicious some of these temptations could be, but sometimes you just want to have it all. It was this remarkable night that may mark the history books forever more, as it was tonight that I created possibly the best culinary invention since man created fire; nay, the best invention since the wheel was crafted! For without the wheel this journey would have taken much longer, but on a personal note Lord of the Rings would have been much quicker if they had a car, just sayin’.

Back on topic there is no name for my creation. I took the Zesty nacho platter switched the chips for french fries, and then added macaroni and cheese on top(the white cheese.) Now I know at this moment you may be thinking, all that build up for some crazy abomination of nacho cheese fries? Yep. They’re amazing and will change you’re whole life.

Brief side note; these may exist elsewhere I really have no idea what every diner in the entire world is doing, but this is a winning combo. If you’re reading this and you too have developed this or something similar to it then I highly recommend giving yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it. For everyone else, this is quite possibly a life altering experience, or at-least like a really good meal.

When i’m not designing food that can alter the course of human history; I DJ at a radio station, KSSU. I also do other stuff, read about some of it here.

A Letter of Introduction


Radio

Something about the idea of radio is so exciting. That phenomenon when someone in a room with a microphone addressing a wide audience of diverse people from so many different stages in life. That’s the great thing about mass communications, and that is one of the things that first got me interested in radio to begin with.

Who am I, this random person typing letters on a keyboard in the middle of the night? Well, that is what I am here to tell you about. My name is David, and I am a new DJ here at KSSU. I decided to write this post to not only introduce myself, but also my show, which will be airing on Tuesdays at 3:00 PM.

As for me, I am a pretty simple guy, with way too many interests! I was drawn to KSSU last summer when, after discovering that the station existed, I stopped by and realized that anyone could submit an application. So I did just that, and here I am. I am quite excited for the opportunity to work here at KSSU, not only because of the experience it will provide, but because in my 2 weeks here so far, I have already met some amazing people and gained some valuable experience. I also love music, so that helps

What might you be able to expect from my show? Well, that is the question, isn’t it? My show will, without a doubt, be a reflection of me. That is, a variety of topics and genres of music, as well as being a preverbal melting pot of audio content. I personally enjoy almost every kind of music, so that is what the show will attempt to be at its core. I will warn you, however, that my taste in music often shifts to one genre or another, so the difference may be more noticeable between shows, than between songs.

In addition to some killer music, I will also be talking about topics and stories that I find interesting at the time. These topics will likely be in relation to music, movies and TV, as those are things that I heartily enjoy. In addition to those three “staples” I will attempt to not only broaden your horizons, but mine as well. I plan on doing that by delving into topics that I might not normally take an interest in, but that sound exciting, or perhaps simply to satisfy my own curiosity!

I also plan on keeping up on blog posts, as I love the medium and feel like having a blog post for each show is a great way to keep you all up to date with what’s happening here on my show. The music playlists for the show will also be posted somewhere on the internet, as I love having the ability to look up a song that I might not have gotten the name of while listening to a given show.

So hello, and welcome, dear listener! I look forward to an exciting and eclectic semester of radio awesomeness! If you have any questions or comments, please leave them on this post, or tweet me @davidmoore326. Thanks for reading, and I will talk to you soon.

David Moore is  a new DJ with KSSU Sacramento State’s only student run radio station.

Version Control


git

I’m currently sitting in Riverside Hall at Sacramento State listening to Modest Mouse to drown out the voices around me, and contemplating the presentation I just heard about Git. Now if you don’t happen to be a programmer this may be your first time hearing about it, or version control in general.
