I’m (eventually) going to Disneyland!

[UPDATE 09.10.2012] My robots and rocket ship have now gone up on the Space Base 8 blog! Check ’em out at the following links:

[/UPDATE]

In 2008-2009 I discovered RSS feeds and as a result got quite addicted to reading and subscribing to various webcomics. I’m pretty sure that at one point I was subscribed to a little over a hundred, maybe even over 150. Since then I’ve cut down that list to under 30 (still diminishing even now), and one of those that I absolutely love reading is Space Base 8.

I discovered Space Base 8 before it even began. The author, David Scott Smith, had begun writing a blog about his journey to create Space Base 8, called Monkey Always Wins. I think it was the title that drew me to it, out of all things. A monkey that always wins? Intriguing!

I watched YouTube videos and wrote a blog as a break from typing up essays

Some days when I’m at the library I don’t even do anything related to uni. I just watch some YouTube videos. Also, last week we got a new internet plan at home so it’s faster and I can actually watch YouTube vids at home. Here are a few videos and songs that I’ve discovered in the past few months that I enjoyed.

“The Beat” by Ben Rector. It’s a catchy song with a head-boppin’ beat.

What a beautiful God

I had my iTunes playing on random (“shuffle”, if you wanna be accurate), and a song by one of my favourite artists came on.

Beautiful – Shawn McDonald

As I look into the stars
I’m pondering how far away they are
How You hold them in Your hands
And still You know this man
You know my innermost being, oh
Even better than I know, than I know myself
What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God

And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I, what am I

As I look off into the distance
Watching the sun roll on by
Beautiful colours all around me, oh
Painted all over the sky
The same Hands that created all of this
They created you and I
What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God

And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I
That You might die that I might live
What am I, what am I, what am I, what am I

It’s been so long since I listened to this song, and I do absolutely love the lyrics. But tonight, one particular lyric stuck out to me:
