Note from the “geeky” admin:
Here’s some steps for running the code on windows.

2. Save THE FILE on your Desktop
3. Go to Start->Programs->Ruby 1.9.3-p0 and run Start command prompt with Ruby
4. Type in cd Desktop , hit Enter, and viviangirls1.rb then hit Enter. Enjoy.

“Hey! Welcome to my adventure game!

Have you always wanted to come on tour with Vivian Girls?
Now is your chance to see if you’ve got what it takes!

I coded it using Ruby, because I am trying to learn Ruby, and this is how I chose to practice my skills!

Directions for Mac OSX:

1. Download the file! Right click and save THIS FILE. Save it in your Downloads folder. Hit “enter”.

2. Open your Terminal application. (if you don’t know where this is, just do a search for “terminal”)

3. Go into your Downloads folder by typing “cd downloads”. Hit “enter”.

4. Type in “ruby viviangirls1.rb” (feel free to copy and paste that)

5. Enjoy! It should take you about 2 minutes to play.

Directions for PC:

I dont know.
Make sure you have Ruby on your computer, I guess.
I don’t even know what your version of Terminal is.
Is it called the command prompt?
I’m dumb. You are smart, figure it out.

If you want to learn Ruby, or any other languages, I really recommend Learn Code The Hard Way.”

The Babies: January 6, 2010 Glasslands – Flac and MP3 Downloads

Babies is the new band formed by Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls and Kevin Morby of Woods. The band’s sound however bears very little stylistic resemblance to either. Last night at Glasslands, the quartet performed a nine-song twenty-seven minute set of straightforward girl-boy vocal guitar rock with an electric stage energy sometimes not seen from their more sedate day job bands. The result was one of the more rambunctious crowds in the many times we have been to this Brooklyn art space venue. While the band’s MySpace page features the two recorded tracks from Babies thus far, last night’s set contained enough solid material for a full length album that we anticipate will see release this year.

We recorded this set from directly in front of the soundboard area and mixed two microphones with a two-channel feed from the board. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
