Infinite Jukebox

This is really cool - upload a song (or select one that's already been uploaded) and it plays it, but at any point in the song, it has a chance of following a "branch" and skipping forward or backward to a similar-sounding part of it, so you can listen to it on repeat without it being exactly the same. :)

You have to have Chrome or Safari for it to work. I hadn't reinstalled Chrome on my computer since I reinstalled Windows in August, but it's definitely worth reinstalling Chrome for :)

Wii wish U a merry belated Christmas

Finally got to finish this list!

← 2011 2013 →

What I got for Christmas:

- Wii U from Mom & Dad
- Wii U games: New Super Mario Bros. U & Nintendo Land from Mom, and Scribblenauts Unlimited from ellaina02.
- Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (3DS version) from pathvain_aelien

> Self-Description, Flowchart, and Compiling shirts
> mousepad
> xkcd: volume 0
- My annual Garfield calendar from Mom
- Paid account extension from Mom and renewed add-on userpics from ellaina02. Notice that I finally took down my blackout userpics from the WCIT-12 protest and started using userpics other than the one blackout userpic that didn't become inactive again!
- Assorted candy from Mom
- Mario pajama pants from Jake
- Pocketknife from my grandfather, and $50 from him and his wife

What I gave for Christmas:

- I got Dad a 10-in-1 survivalist tool

- I got pathvain_aelien two books: Murder Most Royal by Jean Plaidy and The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown
- I got my grandpa and his wife an Olive* Garden gift card
- I got Nace an iTunes gift card

*I still haven't made any comics for Lightning Made of Owls, and I already typed "Oliver" instead of "Olive" by accident at first?
