Just a few sketches. If you know who originally did the mouse please help me find them. Their style is gorgeous.

My morning warmup. Nothing great here but it’s nice to practice.
This is not my character nor my background. It I loved them both so decided to draw and add them together.

Ep 86 is up! Animal Quest – The Travelers – Ch 8 – Pages 1769 – 1821.

It’s basic, but as you can see the tremor in my hand is causing me issues, so I think I’ll switch to procreate and slow the lines down to make them smoother. Then I can go in depth with detail. This was just a practice run of Rose sleeping front the last episode of Animal Quest – The Travelers.

Please go to http://Anchor.fm/DivergentMind to see the latest episode if the embedded file still isn’t working. In the mean time I’m going to play catch up today and try and get some art made after a few episodes are done. I’m developing a better style suited for a children’s book but it’s still no where near the level that I want. I know I want thin lines. And dashes of colour, but this is what I came up with last night up above.

How to pack a three person Podcast into a single Thinktank 2.0 Travel Bag.

So this older version of a Thinktank Bag (Version 2.0) is something I inherited from my dad when he died, and he used it to carry camera gear, as I did while traveling before getting too ill to leave my house in a healthy manner. But something special is coming up. Nettio’s and my 10 year anniversary and I’m going to force myself to be out of the house at a hotel (room) —with room service— so we can have a nice time, and I don’t get sick around the other guests. She doesn’t know it but there’s a special podcast I want to do after she opens her gift, which I’ll show you all once it’s set up and going. (I hope you like it). Anyway back to my travel set up.

The bag itself comes with partitions that use hook and loop fasteners to stick to each other and the sides. I also use them to protect parts form jostling one another as you’ll see. What you can see is a kifaru pouch (also left to me in his bug out bag—which is a great hiking bag, but that’s another story.) And my Behringer Euphoria UMC 404 HD which if you want to buy can be found on my affiliates links page with a great deal for some extra cables all for a dollar more than the unit itself from other sellers. Seriously, go check it out. Be warned that the TRS cables (Those that go into the phones and instrument parts are mono and you’ll need to pick up a stereo cable for what I’ll show you later in the setup.) Then there’s what’s hidden underneath the silver partition at the top.

As you can see that’s two pairs of Stereo Behringer HPM-1000’s which are $11.99 each for a great pair of starter phones and they come with a screw off 1/4 in adapter for your interface or older generation phone or what have you. They sound great for the money. They’re incredibly light. They’re not the best of the best, but if you’re starting out the value is huge. Okay let’s see what’s below the Kifaru bag, shall we?

It’s some of that partitioning I was talking about. Extremely useful that. They logo is obscured but it’s a triple pack of Behringer 1800xm’s (I think I’m one of those sort of people that supports a brand now. Their quality has been stellar so far.) that I got for $48.00 on Amazon. That’s $16 or so dollars per mic, and they improve the quality of the cast by a large margin for a starter set. I use them for audiobook recordings and they capture emotion in a great way without any needing to add in fancy effects. I also did something special to them to make them each a bit different.

I’m green, Nettios is Pink, and our first Guest M asked for the Teal/blue one. And I have 27 others to pick from when I get bored or need to clean or replace them.

Okay the first thing you’ll need to see if you’re multi-person casting is a Phone splitter, and I had to go with Behringer again (really?! YES! It was $23 dollars and sounds excellent). So I went with their HA400 AMP. The xlr cables come with the kit in my affiliate link XPix is their brand. I spent an extra $9 for the blue slightly shortly 6 ft cable for my friend to match (Not sure of the brand). I’m sure the amazon basics XLRs are fine at under $7 each. If I get a chance to test one, I’ll let you know. Resting on top of those is the 12 volt power to the AMP—which just got me thinking of what I could add to my setup, a portable battery pack.
Which I have. It’s got a US plug on it that gives three hours of straight juice, and I can charge it while running things through it. Check out Lifepowr if you want something that will outlast you. I backed them when they were just a kickstartering glimmer in someone’s eye and love the thing for it’s usefulness. They price point is high though. Just a heads up.

Anyway back to the bag. Below the 404 is a stand from a Blue Snowball Ice because that was my starter mic and a gift from Nettios attached to the Behringer mic handle for a third seated person.

On the top middle is are the miiso 1/4th to 3.55mm connector so someone with regular phones can plug into the amp and still have control. When I can afford a third set of 1000’s that’s what I’ll be buying. There’s also a 1/4th to 1/4th inch phone to AMP connector that’s beautifully short so that they stay together and they match most the cables other than the xlr’s in colour and just look dashing. Lastly is the USB cable to power my 404 into my iPad Pro (2018) 11 in through a Baseus USBC hub. 3.0 usb power is the pips.

The reason to use a camera bag other than a regular bag is that you can strap on your neewer or other arms to the side of the sucker and get going as soon as you’re done for the day. There’s been a design change in the last few years since I got my first one and bought the second one a few weeks ago. The older ones seem to handle spinning the mic a bit better, but the newer (hah!) neewers grip surfaces better. You can choose to pack your ipad into their front pouch (Or inside of course) but I like having it packed nearer to me so that I don’t lose it incase I lose the case—or the plot.

So there we have it. Three people. One set up. One bag. Good to go. Hope that helps you out.

Also you don’t have to use this exact bag. A suitcase with cardboard or pick and pluck foam would do wonders as well. Whatever your budget, do it your way.

Much pleasure,

-J.

Making Coronavirus Inert for treatment and study. How to Beat Coronavirus (an attempt).

CoronaVirus’s

What we need to have to fight it.

Identification of damaging units of RNA
Protease reduction at site of entry. Something to absorb the hydrolysis., or at the very least move it away from the affected areas.

The 5’ methylated CH3 chain can be blocked by using Flash Photolysis to destroy the hydrogen that cuts into the amino acid/peptide. Breaking the chain so that the methylated cap binds to itself (shown how later) leaving only C Remainder bond open for set up.

Couldnt we intercept the Triple adenine base messenger RNA with Uracil or even Guanine if they can make it through and then flash them as well if its even needed as it could become inert at that point. At which the Damaging RNA is connectionless. Just within the cell.

So what we could build is a chain of Uracil since they’re hydrogen bonding, and excite them with an extra electron and add them to the end of the adenine seeing as you need 6 hydrogen to Uricils 4 meaning you would just excite three or add in addition hydrogen as needed (so that they are no longer strong enough for hydrolysis towards the host RNA). So it’s a matter of folding the carbon in on itself through propulsed flashing and then swinging it to bond to the other end of the virus making them inert. Shaped similarly like a pringle, I suppose.

So what happens if we insert these builds into the system through a breathing device after they’ve been flashed so that the farthest depth can be reached within the body making sure that the red blood cells carry the good stuff to the damaged area, so that they reach the cells that are affected, transfer into the systems of the cells, or at least bump into them, and cause the folding from interferons doing their duty once they realize that the virus is now inert and they can take it as waste to be disposed of while alerting other cells for the same infection.

But how to do this within a syringe. Flashing seems simple enough to, rapidly done over the body. Painful and dangerous perhaps due to the weakened state of the patient. Perhaps an IV that keeps the body cool and creates a greater heat difference between the virus RNA and the cell its infecting so that they can be found and flashed without bringing the overall temperature of the human body into unsafe measures.

Then it’s a matter of developing an interferon that can be made outside the body such as within inert viruses at differing temperatures and with the inert virus folded (showing that it can be done so first) so that it knows to attack it, which is should naturally know because its an unknown. Though it may present fever which may worsen people’s respiratory infections. Then those are injected through a shot and the body takes in the interferons and teaches it to immunize against the Coronavirus.

If I had more information at hand about the complexity of it’s structure I could build a better road map. So lets call this a trial run, since I have no laboratory.

Much Pleasure,
