Firstly, remember when MissingNo. entered FarmTown? I think he moved to YoVille.



Second of all:

The imposter song glitch is hard to do - I only managed to get one imposter song today: "Pushrcle" by Sarah McLachlan (song was Push, screen said Circle). However, I would've also had "Let's Do the Things We Go Beyond, Pt. 2" by "Diya" (song was Let's Do the Things We Normally Do by Dido, screen said To Go Beyond, Pt. 2 by Enya) if I hadn't pressed Pause two too many times. I did manage to research the glitch further using Pushrcle, though.

It seems that:
- Yesterday I was wrong about how to do the glitch; it's not as hard as I thought. I paused Circle the instant it ended, and even though I didn't press Pause again, it was already on the imposter song. The screen showed that it was playing Circle again (though it had a pause symbol in the top-right corner even though it also showed the progress through the song increasing), yet it was playing Push. (For simplicity, when a song is playing while the screen shows that it's paused, I shall refer to it as being "plaused" from now on.)
- If the pause button is pressed while an imposter song is plaused, it goes to just plain playing, and the pause button starts functioning as normal again.
- If the previous button is pressed while an imposter song is playing (paused and plaused have not been tested yet) and is at least a few seconds into the song (so it normally would just restart; I haven't tried pressing previous within a second of the song's beginning), it goes to the beginning of the song the screen said was playing.
- If an imposter song plays all the way through, it may appear to freeze for a few seconds, then make the screen change to the song that was actually playing for a few seconds, then go to the next song normally. I do not remember whether it was playing or plaused when this happened with Adiwards, though.
- According to kandigurl, skipping to the next song while an imposter song is playing does the same thing as letting it play all the way through. I haven't tried this on my own yet.

Things I still have to try: (I thought of some new ones)

- Press previous while imposter song is paused or plaused at least a few seconds into song
- Press previous while imposter song is playing, paused, or plaused within a second of it starting
- Let imposter song play all the way through while playing and while plaused to see which one(s) confused the iPod like I did with Adiwards, and to see what happens the other way
- See for myself about skipping the song (though unlike letting it play all the way, it is possible to do that while it is paused, so I should test that too)
- Look at imposter song's position in shuffled order and compare it to the song it actually was and the song it pretended to be
- Use seek bar on an imposter song that is playing, paused, or plaused
- Change the rating for an imposter song that is pretending to be a song with the same rating as the song it actually is (this will be easy since I haven't rated a single song)
- Change the rating for an imposter song that pretends to have a different rating (To make it easy to remember the ratings, I'll leave songs starting with A-E unrated, rate songs from F-J 1 star, K-O 2 stars, P-T 3 stars, U-Y 4 stars, and Z and numbers 5 stars. Obviously, all of these ratings will be removed afterward.)
- Add an imposter song to On-The-Go
- Browse Album for an imposter song for which the album displayed doesn't match the actual album
- Browse Artist - same as above
- Make last song pretend to be second-to-last, then listen to it all the way through when playing and plaused
- Same thing, but skip song instead of listening to all of it, and try paused too
- Make second song pretend to be first, then press the previous button within a second of the song starting when playing, paused, and plaused

Lastly, the PSAT and SAT are coming up (apparently, I have to do both). Hopefully, my essay and critical reading won't be [weirddream]big Crayola messes[/weirddream] like last time.

Very systematic approach :)

You strike me as someone who would be great at QA testing, and writing test scripts, if you have any interest in IT and programming.

I definitely do!

Glitches and I go a long way back. I used to mess with Game Genie codes when playing Super Mario World (before I knew about ROMs, ROM corruptors, Lunar Magic, or smwcentral.net), and I managed to modify a code to change the number of lives Mario starts with so that he started with a negative number of lives, which would display as a letter and a number, like G5 (-91), and could be brought back up to a positive number if I got enough extra lives without dying. Also, by only entering half of a code to change the amount of coins needed for an extra life, I made the coin counter mess up similarly (i.e. 18, 19, H7, 79, N7, D9, 41, J9, A1, 3, 4, 5...) and give lots of lives. :P

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
