Holy Flying Fuck!

Far Cry 2 is good, but Fallout 3 is so much better! The best way to describe it is that it's Oblivion with guns, more realistic stuff that you can do and better humor. The in-game dialogue that you can choose your responses with have swear words and such that you might think you would hear from a wanderer, or a bum, or an idiot. I already fucked myself for some of the game, as I have someone that hates me because I didn't blow up a bomb. But I'd rather keep all of the side quests and the fact that I don't have to worry about someone fucking something up before I even set anything up.

But now that I have those 2 games... oh wait! Left 4 Dead comes out pretty soon if I'm right, and I definitely will be buying that for the zombie online fun. And if StarCraft 2 comes out in December I won't be going anywhere on my Christmas holiday... because I'll be sitting in front of my PC for 17 hours a day playing video games until they're all beaten or until I get annoyed with them. So remember, if you want to get me a good present for Christmas make sure it's adult diapers, empty bottles, energy drinks and junk food. Maybe some other stuff too.

Holy Crap

I know it's been a while since I decided to make myself type something, but the hell with it. Might as well do something useful until I have to leave for some meetings and shit. To put it the easy way: I don't remember what has happened in the past few days because I've been partying way too much. Friday and Saturday are just giant blurs to me right now, which is kinda ok in my mind... but I do want to remember some shit. Like how I got a hole in my shoe, and why there's a cut on my fucking toe almost exactly where the hole is.

I do have very good news though... I got Far Cry 2. And it's almost as much fun as GTA 4. I haven't told many people the story of GTA 4 in my 360, but it's almost the only game that I can play at home. Why? Because I love killing people with a car and then going on a cop rampage just to suicide bomb myself into a road block at the last second. Far Cry 2 is almost along the same lines, but it does it in a different way: the FPS HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT LETS KILL SOME PEOPLE way. And I have to say that I quite like it, even though I can't make any time to actually play it for more than 30 minutes right now. I might write something interesting about it later, or I might forget that I bought it and move onto other things.

I hate being sick

Yes, I am sick. I've been sick for a while... which is ass. It's so bad today that if I breath deep I'll puke or pass out. Can't cough, can barely walk. I do get the time off to watch multiple movies and shows that I don't like or I haven't heard of. All I can hope is that it doesn't become a sinus infection... as if it does I'll need surgery to fix it. I kinda forgot to put this in, but one of my nostrels is blocked from when I broke my nose.

Here's to hoping that it isn't to bad.

October 11, 2008


I went to the Toronto Zoo a few days ago, and noticed that they had a shitload of monkeys. They also had a moose that followed you and a cougar eating grass to kill itself. I don't mind going to the zoo to see the animals, but holy shit some of them have that look in their eyes that they are helpless and need us to help them survive.

Seriously, the lions didn't look too scary. They just looked like big cats. Hell, if I did some of my dog training tricks I could've petted them. I did get a nice crack dealer tin from the gift shop, and it had mints in it. The tin is called the "Jungle Mints tin", and it's lime green. Still smells like the damn mints too.

Then there's always the bullshit that I'll ramble on about... like how my friends bike got stolen. But the worst is that this was my friend who got hit by a car, and the insurance company wants the broken bike to make sure he doesn't fix it and have 2 bikes. So he just got screwed out of $850 cash and now the main way that we get around is walking. I didn't realize that some of these places that you can get to by bike in 5 minutes are a 20 minute walk, so I've been getting used to the fact that walking is way more unpredictable than biking.

Right now, I'm trying to figure what to do with my day.... I might be back later if I remember.

October 1, 2008


Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead and the unknown date of when Starcraft 2 will hit. All in the next 3 to 5 months. I don't think I'll have any money left after buying all these games, and no real time left to do anything but game. Plus I have a nice cough going on right now, and it doesn't sound all that healthy. But I can't do anything about that, because I just don't care to fix it right now. I want my wrist to be fixed, and it bruised over last night again, so that I don't have to be in pain when I go to a new website.

September 28, 2008

Sorry for the absence

I've had a lot of crap happen to me in the last few days. My mum, who I dearly love, is having more complications of whatever she has right now. Doctors can't tell her what is causing all of her symptoms. Then I had a CO2 leak at work yesterday from the pop machine, so I had a fun day at the hospital getting poked with needles. As a result of the needles, my right wrist hurts like a motherfucker because of the blood tests needed to prove that I didn't have any bubbles in my blood. Which is a bad thing.

But at least I got Kirby Super Star Ultra!!! I used to play the original for the SNES all the time when I was younger, and I know that a friend also likes this game a lot. I can't make any judgement yet because I just started the game, but I know it'll be awesome. Why will it be awesome? IT'S KIRBY THE FUCKING GUMBALL! THATS WHY! So now I shall proceed to chill with Kirby, some green tea, pepsi and coke. Maybe later I'll burn a bit and continue to play Kirby, and also use that to kill some of the incoming pain from typing all of this.

My Posts are deeper than usual

So I have thought of a way to bring the normal post ratio from once in a while to OMG RANDOMNESS!!!1 It might be a little while before I can get it back up to the normal posting range of every few minutes that I can think of something to complain about and I'm near enough to a PC that I can make a little rant, but I can make some headway with some retarded crap.

Like people that judge books by their covers, this is how they spend their lives. They judge everything from the outside and nothing from the inside.

Ooo, today I walked out of an electronics store without buying anything. This is a huge step for me because I have money, and I'm generally very impulsive to buy the first thing that comes to mind. Then I regret buying it for a few minutes, and then I forget about it and move onto bigger things. I'll give you an example: I need a new cell phone. Mine is a piece of shit. The vibrator works sometimes, it turns itself off if there isn't a piece of paper in the battery case, the keypad is screwy at the best of times and the fact that when I close the screen after sending a text message the screen stays lit. And I wonder why I get bad battery life when I actually use my phone for *gasp* calling people? The damn reception on it sucks so bad that if I walk under an overhang it will start going nuts on me sometimes.

So I looked at phones. But there are no phones that fit what I want and need. Sure there are phones that can be my MP3 player, or take pictures and videos. But I just need a phone that can send text messages and call people without fucking it all up in the process. I need the tank phone, like an older Nokia. Now those things are tanks, and I wish I had one. But no, I'm stuck with this piece of shit Samsung until it decides to die on me or until I accidentally loose it somewheres and have it get hit by a car or get stolen.

September 10, 2008

I have a good point to make

The world of today is great with all of the high gas prices, crazy Middle Eastern people with AK's, and the fact that no one has common courtesy. But the one thing that really pisses me off is the fact that we are loosing the good people that make our world today. How? The Pussifacation of today's society. This is where my CNN bias will really kick in too, because it is part of the problem along with the rest of the American media machine.

When I was growing up, I used to eat dirt, ply outside and get cuts, scrapes, bruies and the like. Now, pfft. People don't let their kids outside most of the time because of some terror threat, or there was a kid on the street that looked a little scary. I eat healthy, my parents never took me out for food and now that I work in the fat food industry it makes me happy that I can watch the fat people walk into my place of work and start ordering a 20 piece chicken meal with 2 large gravies just to watch them sit down and eat it all in the span of 10 minutes.

A great example of this phenomenon is this: http://cbs2chicago.com/northwestindianabureau/bag.ban.school.2.813711.html. They have banned all purses and bags from being taken to class in a High School. No wonder why we have so many people decapitating other people on busses and beating the shit out of people for no reason. They get the freedom into their heads and take a run for a jail sentence.

But I have come to the conslusion that if we allowed people to do what they wanted to do, that isn't illegal, we would have a better society. If the kids of now actually got outside to play in the lead infeasted dirt, and to breath in the shitty excuse for fresh air this might not happen. Thing is, most of what I predict comes true. So I could be a good physic, or I could be a nut job that has nothing better to do with his day dreaming time.

I just relized something

There are too many damn movies out on the market that copy each other! Do the movie writers have a basic "general action movie with lame story and a small romantic theme" guide for all movies done now? Two movies like this are You Don't Mess With The Zohan and 21 are great examples. General action for both, in different ways but they are similar, with a lame story and a small romantic theme. BAM! They both pulled a large amount of money. Why? Because people nowadays are sheeple that will go see anything that comes onto the TV screen.

This is where we loose good movies, like The Dark Knight, to loads of crappy movies, such as Tropic Thunder, because all the sheeple want is a basic "LMFAO" movie that requires no effort of thinking about the plot or storyline. Thats why The Dark Knight is different. It has a story, and a pretty damn good one at that. It's not The Godfather like, but it still is much better than most movies made now.

Then there's the basic stoner comedy, which I won't even get into because some of those are really good and will actually pull more money than the general action movie because... IT HAS A STORY! Drama's... I can't stand them.

September 4, 2008

I'm either really lazy, stupid or baked

I think its a combo of the first 2 right now, as I forgot to call the DHL number to question about this damn billing business. I have to save 3 weeks of Toronto Star business sections for a scrapbook assignment, which is gay, and I still haven't got info on that damn headphone part. Plus right now I hate my work schedule, as I have to party on Saturday night instead of Friday night. Don't get me wrong, it's ok. But it's just going to be a pain in the ass to plan and meet somewhere. Plus I'm the only one that can supply for the party, so the party revolves around me.

There's also the typical BS of idiots, geeks, twerps, and fags that you have to deal with... but it all isn't too bad. My life isn't in the shitter (yet), so I shall ride this wave until someone decides to destroy my nice chill mood and they shall unleash all of the pent up anger that will happen within the few days after my chill mood just kills itself. Sounds like great fun!

September 3, 2008

Yes I have OCD

As it's part of my compulsion to come here and post most of the time. I don't post all that happens because of the fact that I just don't plain remember full stories of things that I'll do. It will start out fine, then turn scabby until I just get bored and start thinking about other things... like pie! My headphone driver (sigh) still hasn't come in, and this business is really starting to piss me off. No messages or anything from the ordering place. Then I have this bill from DHL about customs fee's or something wanting me to pay cash to them. I read this and went WTF?. Then I decided to ignore it until I had the mental capacity of a 10 year old to re-read it. I guess I'll have to call them and bitch, if I bitch hard enough I might be able to get the fee waived or something.

But now I sit in my room, buzzing, hot and sweaty thinking of things to do because I posted here and now have nothing to do. I might have to go to the asshole of the Internet... which I'm fine with for the most part. Except the CP. And the illegal shit. And DDOS's (karma is a bitch, don't fuck with it).

September 1, 2008

Oh Wow!

I have such a nice buzz from working all this long weekend. Not enough sleep and too much crappy food, like the popcorn from AMC. That shit is nasty, and it's the worst coming out the other end. So now I sit here waiting for someone to call me back or for someone else so that I can chill with some people before tomorrow... at least I have some good music.

August 30, 2008

Tropic Thunder

It really sucks ass. Don't bother seeing it, high, drunk or just sober. My god it was a horrible excuse for someone to make a lot of money by throwing a few drunk Americans into a rainforest and filming it. Thats hte only way I can describe it, and because it has Ben Stiller in it the story makes no sense. Too much crazy talk bullshit and not enough of a real story. I wanted to see Death Race, but apparently I couldn't because I was fucking distracted and forgot the ID story of the new Ontario Driver's Liscences, which most people still don't know where the birthdate is. So fuck.

Max Payne Trailer

I thought this was another movie based on a game that would be shit, but I'm so wrong. I wanna see this movie badly.

August 29, 2008


I now have a piece of a gum box stuck to my thumb with superglue. It sucks, but it also opens up opportunities to have some guessing games of what's stuck to my thumb. That forest was quite nice, kinda buggy and lots of trees. Shady, and then I went fishing. Got a nice sunburn and 3 smallish basses. I also made a few nice fires that were hot enough to scare even the bravest raccoons from coming into the campsite.

One thing I noticed is the amount of out of province cars there were on the 401 while we were traveling back. Lots of Americans, and Easterners. Even a few Westerners, but they were fewer than people from New Brunswick. But I'm back here, post and hoping that Saturday's shift isn't too bad or else I'm screwed. Again. Lulz...

August 24, 2008

So I'm leaving for a forest

And I won't be back for a few days. But this fucks up my plans. You know why? My headphone driver is supposed to come in sometime this week, and I can only get it on the Friday. School starts about 5 or 6 days after that, and I have to work the Saturday again. But right now, I'm feeling fine about all that. I just wanna get out of the city and into the trees, start some biking or canoeing or fishing or something tonight.

This also means the blog will be left unposted for a few days, as when I get back I'll be too lazy or something to post here right away. No pictures, I hate being the retarded kid with a stupid hat and the camera saying "Smile!".

August 22, 2008


I've been picking these little flecks of stuff off the bottom of my mouse for about a month, and during that time my mouse pad has started to become stickier and stickier to the point where the mouse will stick to the pad overnight. The little flecks are pieces of the mouse pad surface, and the mouse is sticking to the rubber under the top surface. This angers me, almost as much as my 360. My 360 is sick, as it doesn't like playing games. GTA 4 locks up all the time, Forza 2 is a crazy FPS drop feast and Rez has some sound issues. I'm just waiting for it to drop like a fly so I can try to get a new one from Microsoft... but hell that won't happen for a while. I got about a week and a bit of freedom left and then I'm back into full time school, part time work, which is ass. But the money is good from work, and I'll have money in my bank account if I want to go out for lunch or some shit like that. But for now, I wait and act like I'm not too bored.

August 21, 2008


I got my Thinkgeek package yesterday, with my Annoyatron which is awesome and the electronic bubble wrap. The problem with the bubble wrap is that it's instructions are in Japanese... and I can barely read English on the best of days. So if anything goes for a shit on it, I do dare say it but I think I may be fucked.

I bought some of the new Bawls flavour last night, it's called g33k b33r. It's just high caffeine root beer, but it does taste really good. I want to find a place that will sell me a 12 pack or 24 pack, but that won't happen because I live in Canada. And if I do find a place that is that magical, I will get destroyed on how much I'm paying because it's imported. It did taste good, and it kept me going for most of the night. Too bad I opened it early and drank most of it before midnight or I might have had my medic achievements. I still have the cherry stuff in a can for later to try, but I don't think I'll try that tonight... I'm not sure yet. Might use it to wake up for work on Saturday.

August 20, 2008

Yay TF2 Updated

And guess what? I'm not even going to try for the rest of the Heavy achievements right now because there's a huge need for medics and I still don't have all of those achievements. I got a hold of RVA, but I still have no confirmation that anything has happened. But I am getting my thinkgeek package sometime today, as it was released from Customs at 5 yesterday. Plus I now have Moe. Moe will guide me through a few things, and Moe is a very nice friend. He's a little small for my liking, but I can't afford anything bigger right now. Plus he is still pocket sized, and he shall have a few friends sometime in the near future hopefully. Well I'm off to the bed, as I need sleep.

August 19, 2008

So it's Tuesday

And guess what that means?
NEW UPDATE FOR TF2!! HEAVY UPGRADES!!! Except they haven't updated the game yet...? NOOOOOO!!!!!

So now I am off to bed to nurse the oil burns from the cookers and to get off my feet. I could be making a random useless post tomorrow if I do feel like it, and especially if I can talk with the RVA representative to just say "ORDER MY DAMN PART ALREADY". Or if my electronic bubble wrap and Annoyotron come in. Now that would be awesome, and I would spend tons of time thinking of very very clever hiding spots that I could have with me, and to have hidden. I have already thought of taking the battery out of my cell phone and using some blu tak to keep it from rattling around, but that's way too obvious. This needs to be much more clever, much stealthier. So that I may not only annoy my target, but also anyone else that is willing to be sucked into the annoyance stream of this little device. Now only if DHL would get their shit together and stop giving my package a round trip of the east coast.

August 16, 2008


I just finished watching The Wire. It has to be the best TV show I've ever seen. There aren't any words that I can use to really fully describe it because it's just such a story driven plot. And really, in order to get that feeling of the show taking off you need to be able to watch each episode back to back, or at least a season back to back. I thought the ending s for all of the seasons but season 5 were sort of a loop hole, and I was right due to the fact that they came back into a knot in the 5th season and the 5th season ending.

I really wish that there were more shows that could give you that feeling at first that they wouldn't become an epic, but holy crap this show turned inside out on itself and really gave a feeling. Something that you would expect from a series of movies, or a series of books. But from a TV show?! I have to say that is quite an amazing feat.

August 15, 2008

Interesting Phone Conversation

I had some person call me. I had no fucking clue what they were talking about, or if they were even speaking English for about 2 minutes. All I was hearing was drunk English rumblings and then it clicked. Me being dumb, thinking about this, kept these damn people on the phone. So I find out they're from Scotland. Calling their family to check up. Well fuck me sideways, they're old people. Stubborn as a fucking 250 year old oak too. I try telling them they have the wrong number, and all I get from them is 14 minutes more of my life wasted, along with a threat from a non-existent person that will hit me over the head with a frying pan. And after all this they thought I was high... well they should've gotten me when I was high. Now that would have been an experience.

I got work tomorrow, so no late night rambling for me. Maybe Monday, if I can decide what I want to bitch about. I hate this new layout for blogger too, kinda threw me off when I signed in.

August 12, 2008

I'm Fucking Awesome

And I feel like being a dick tonight. So time for a dick post.

I hate those new rapper dicks with their crappy stretch TRANSPORT TRUCKS or HUMMERS that think they're CRUNK AND UP IN THAT GRILL by wasting all that time with such a piece of ass car. Holy fuck, like a transport truck is meant to transport like cars and food and babies. Not some rap star and 20 tonnes of his worthless crap from one mansion to another because he felt like it. Why the hell can't they stick with normal cars, sorta like Morgan Freeman... even though it wasn't his fucking car he still has the balls to drive a Nissan Maxima. People were freaking out because he should be driving "something worth more money". One question: WHY!? You do that and you start seeing "rich" people going bankrupt. Like Mike Tyson. Then the rappers have to go and walk around with those damn huge brass plated stainless steel chains that they think are gold and yell YO GET CRUNK GET SOME HERE YO YO YO.

I could go on and on about this, but I think I would start to piss people off. At least with most other music celebreties they don't go on with the shittest, most ghetto ways of showing off they have money. Daft Punk? They drive normal cars, live in normal European houses and go on with normal lives. Jezza? Well... wait Jezza isn't a great example because he likes certain vulgar things like his Ford GT (I think he returned it because it was broken again) and his Gallardo Spyder, which I love. Wait a sec, even Euro rappers don't flaunt their shit too much. Well damn, it's just the American rappers that really show their shit off.

But wait, what about... J-Pop? FUCK THAT! No way in hell that I'm even going there, last time I even heard that from a distance I started flipping out. I can't stand it, but thats because I love my bass from all of my techno and house. As I type I'm listening to some great shit from Udachi, and if Udachi reads this YOU ARE A FUCKING GOD!

That's all I got for now, in my completely sleep depreived mental state. Please, if you seriously read this... HAHAHAHA.

August 10, 2008

So the Olympics are on...

And I can't find a damn channel that has coverage. Nothing in advertisement or anything, and this pisses me off. I've always been a fan of the Olympics, but because it's usually hosted in some fucked up time zone I can't watch it. But it's the summer, and I stay up till the crack of dawn (literally, I saw the crack of dawn a few days ago). So I've been hunting on my TV, and no channels for it. Might also be because at 3 in the morning I have no patience for the damn menu system to refresh...

But anyways, I had a call today and it played out a little something like this:

Marc is just sitting around watching The Wire, contemplating what he is going to do on his day off.
*Ring Ring* goes the phone
Marc: Hello?
Boss: Hi Marc
Marc: Hi *Boss*
Boss: We need you to work tonite.
Marc: Alright, only if I can get Monday's shift off.
Boss: No, we need you then too.
Marc: Fuck, fine but you owe me.
Marc furiously wanders off into the abyss of his house to bitch to his parents.

At least I get paid for this, and I get paid this Friday! XD

August 7, 2008

Oh Wow

I have finally found what I wanted: it was Kingdom Hearts 2 for the PS2. I forgot how involving the storyline is, and because I have my old file it's even more fun. No grinding for the amazing attacks or weapons that I already have, and I can still advance the story because of the journal and I do remember bits of what happened. But my god, I found a keyblade that is just amazing. The Guardian Soul (I had to use a KH wiki to find the name), and I just love it. All of the gameplay just blows my mind, even though the graphics aren't HD or special, it makes the game much easier to play for long periods of time.

The graphics are just perfect IMO, and as you see with newer games on newer systems they run into frame rate problems... often. There's only the slightest amount of a frame rate drop if you go into a giant battle and start with Master form against a huge amount of enemies. The best thing about this game, is the fact that you can customize everything to your liking. I know, people will just tell me it's an RPG and that's the basis of most RPG's, but the fact is the stats are pre-arranged and you can still conform the abilites to your play style. I don't use magic because I honestly love having my thumbs hurt.

I'm laughing so hard

Cute Blonde 18 Year Old babysitter - Watch more free videos

It's not what you think.

I've noticed something....

Most of the shows on Discovery are edumacation related! All except for those horror freakshow things, like Mayday. Mythbusters... they kinda teeter on complete entertainment. They do some science stuff sometimes, but most of it is the blowing up quota they have to fill per show. Dirty Jobs is more interesting, but still the only real education show is Daily Planet. And that's scientific news. Maybe I'm bitching because Discovery is my favourite channel, I don't know and I think I might have to watch CNN again tonight just because of the lack of anything to watch on TV. To think, I might have to watch the olympics because there just isn't anything else on.

August 6, 2008


Headphones have been released from customs, I should be getting them tomorrow. I can't even express how happy I am right now, even if the headphones are missing the headband pad. I'll just ghetto mod something onto it if it isn't comfy, and if it is I don't even give a shit then. But from now on I have to turn off my impulsive buying methods and start saving for a big purchase... a car. And those details shall be worked out in the future, along with what I want for a car, and which insurance company I'm going to decide to be raped by.

Also I'm in training for the last week of August, when I go camping for a few days. I need some more bike riding, and some more weight training. Weight training is covered in work, and bike riding is something I can cover. Hell, today I believe that I did 15 kilometres through Oshawa, which was a huge clusterfuck and I will never do that again. Well... maybe because Ajax is too far and there really isn't enough roads and locations in Whitby to ride around to. But for now, I get to bask in the blue LED light's coming from my keyboard and mouse, along with the monitor's glow. Such is my happy life right now.

The Wonders of Early Morning TV

In all of the blankness of this mornings TV, I decided to look through the satellite channels that I never watch because there's always something better on. Not the case right now, so I put on CNN. As soon as I started listening I laughed. And laughed. Sure, I know CNN is supposed to be serious but I always think of them as a bunch or grown ups playing with plastic toddler toys. Why? By the time CNN has something reported everyone has beaten them to the punch. I know I'll get a lot of flack for that, but hell that's what I think of CNN.

Mainly because of what they try to represent: Mid West white America. You know who those people are? Rednecks and farmers. In that mix is also the parents that don't let their kids outside due to the threat of whatever CNN is reporting. So then starts the fattening of the little butterballs. Then more people get angry, and CNN just keeps on reporting the news. But no one really does anything, and I just change the channel or get my news from a different source, some of which are BBC, CBC, canoe.ca, and for my normal electronic knowledge Engadget, Joystiq, RockPaperShotgun and sometimes bit-tech if I have the time. There's also finding out from forums that I frequent quite a bit... and I'm not even going to try to list all of those.

But thats just me, and my whole fucked up perspective on the world. Holy crap, I just lost some more brain cells trying to wrap my head around the crap that CNN has on now... but yet there still isn't anything on besides old cartoons, and those are starting to become very, very tempting in my mind.

August 5, 2008

Holy Crap that was close

Well, earlier today I tried setting my CSS back up to stock sounds. With that not finished, and while I was waiting for it to redownload for the 3rd time, I decided to look around on the Internet. This leads to bad things, because I have a tendency to get wrapped up in modding. As it came to be, I tried to install the new UXtheme patcher and had XP crash on me. Hard. I almost gave up and reinstalled. Almost. But I figured that I might as well try a few roll backs and hey, I'm back. My antivirus was fucked and I've lost 2 programs, but not anything I haven't or can't fix. Turns out that I had a hidden virus in a .rar, unopened and not in service but I think that was the cause of the giant shitstorm that lasted me 3 hours. Now I'm going to try again, once I have a virus scan done. My plan is to make XP seem so un-XP like that the average person would go "Dude, get Windows". Problem is, I have a ton of crap. By that I mean that I have almost 310 gigs of stuff on 3 HDD's. 2 of which are almost full. But, I will soldier on and hopefully I'll have some pics for later. Maybe my CSS will be fully functional again too...

Oh Customs....

My package finally found it's way... directly into customs' hands. But people have told me that Canada Customs is quicker than US Customs... but that's not saying much because the US spends like $1200 checking every single thing that comes into their country as a package so that there isn't any drugs or a bomb. Canada Customs... they look at the receipt, look at the item, check the item and then close the box, seal it, and throw it into Canada Post's hands. Hell, I might even get the same customs guy that did me when we went through to Mexico last year. But I'm being optimistic, there's lots of customs officials.

And time for a rant: all talk. Why don't people like all talk in games? It makes the games more fun, and challenging. Why? You will know where the enemies are going if they are dumb enough to scream it over the mic. You have something to do if your team is losing, or if your team is winning and your bored. You can get people from both sides trying to flush out spies or find where the last AFK is. Then there's always the naysayers, it ruins the game and makes the servers a lag feast. Sure, if you have a shitty connection and you don't like having fun.
If you don't like the all talk, mute everyone. I do this when I surf because people spam music over the mics and it sounds like ass on my headphones. It sounds even worse when I'm listening to music and I hear this crap in the backgroud. In my opinion, if you want to listen to music use Foobar or Winamp to play it and don't share it with everyone. We don't all like your Emo hip crap that has no good musical qualities to it.

Got a new griller today, a nice Broil King charcoal griller. It's an outside floor model, so it isn't anything of a great looker. But oh my god, I want to grill so much stuff on it. The old BBQ we have is so old that the instructions to get the damn thing going are worn off. So every single time I want something to eat, I can't use the BBQ because I don't know how to turn it on. Charcoal though... put charcoal in rack, spray with fluid and light. Leave for a few minutes to heat up and damn, you got a good cooking heat. No worries about grease, that's all burnt off. The grills? They get cleaned from the heat. This thing will kick the crap out of most propane or natural gas BBQ's just because of the simplicity. And the tasteyness.

I love and hate being spontaneous

Out of nowhere today I decided that I needed a backlite keyboard. So guess what I'm typing from now? A new Saitek Eclipse that has a blue backlite. Yea, it works and isn't all that bad of a keyboard. Headphone update: WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?!!? Still off in magical postal land of boxes and boxes of stuff worth tons of money. Canada Post can't even tell me what happened to them, they have the same info that I get from the tracking site. So I now sit here with a nice new gaming like keyboard but no nice new gaming like headphones that will explode my mind. Not to knock my current Sennheiser's though, I do like them. It's just I need something that has a little isolation and some more bass. And now I'm off to bed, I didn't know what to do with myself until now. That's not a joke.

Nothing Real Important

I haven't had anything really important happen in the past few days, all I've done is sat around and played either CS:S or TF2. I did see a paintball gun turret, which I might buy if the price is good, and I'm still waiting on my headphones... :( More updates on the headphones later, maybe Sunday.

July 29, 2008

Oh Wow I want these CS Skins

Fuck that be funny as hell!

Im Tired....

And bored too. But I don't want to do anything because then I have to move towards my bed, which would make me go to sleep. My headphones are... somewhere's in the US. At least I know that tommorow I'll wake up and have Kingdom Hearts 2 waiting for me, which I should mention. The beginning is boring as hell, as I remembered it, but I never noticed so much ailising. Like hot damn there isn't a straight edge in the whole game! But it redeams itself with an amazing soundtrack, which I can't get enough of. Also the whole PS2 thing is really getting to me... but I won't talk about that right now because I can't remember what I was going to rant about.

July 28, 2008

Yay, I've finally made a good decision

I'm going to play through Kingdom Hearts 2 again, hopefully without a problem. I've also got my older games that I can play too, like Kirby Super Stars and Super Mario World. I'll also have to put up some videos now that I've figured out how to actually make a video using the emulator itself and not using a screen cap program or something. So yea... and I work again tonight, but then I'm off until Saturday and that might even change if I get called in on Thursday or Friday. My headphones are somewhere in the mail, and now I sit here in my tight jeans contemplating going to EB or eating first.

Holy Crap

I just saw this...


Here's a copypasta of it:

Pictured: The terrifying 4-inch key fob gun used to shoot clubber 'in row over girls'

By Colin Fernandez
Last updated at 12:19 AM on 26th July 2008

At just four inches long, it fits easily in the hand and could be a key fob of the type used to open car doors by remote control.

But this tiny device is in fact a lethal weapon - a gun capable of firing two 0.25-inch bullets.

Yesterday, a thug was jailed for nine years for using one like it to shoot a man for 'disrespecting' him in a nightclub.

Enlarge gun

Marcus Henry's weapon was converted from a pocket gun designed to fire miniature flares, a gadget which is legal in Bulgaria where they cost £15.

Around 100 are believed to have filtered into Britain from Eastern Europe in the latest worrying illustration of how weapons once found in the realm of spy fiction are falling into the hands of criminals.

The double-barrelled gun is fired by pressing buttons on the side.

Marcus Henry

Marcus Henry was jailed today for shooting a man with the key fob gun

Henry, 27, shot Yaw Darko Kwakye from nine feet outside the Departure Lounge club in the City of London on December 16 last year, hitting him in the shoulder.

Mr Darko Kwakye survived because, due to the short barrel of the weapon, the bullet did not fire straight but rotated through the air and hit him side-on. Henry was jailed at the Old Bailey yesterday.

Mark Heywood, prosecuting, told the jury: 'In these days of heightened security, particularly in our capital city, if someone wants to carry a weapon it must be concealed.

'One method of concealment is to disguise what it is - a remote control key fob of the kind you might find is used to open the doors of a car.'

The court heard that Henry, who was in the club with a friend, had been seen chatting to Mr Darko Kwakye's girlfriend shortly before the club closed at 4am.

Mr Heywood told jurors that after a fight between the two men in the club, Henry lay in wait outside when the club shut and confronted members of 24-year-old Mr Darko Kwakye's group.

'Henry was seen to have his hand near his waistband on a number of occasions and was heard to say, "Look how many of you there are, there's only two of us",' Mr Heywood said.

'He then brought his hand out and into a straight-arm firing position and then aimed in the direction of Mr Darko Kwakye and the others.

'There was a lot of movement and between two and four sounds like shots.'

 key fob gun

The 4-inch Bulgarian-made key fob gun is split into two separate pieces to load. The 2 shows the muzzle of the weapon.

The victim's group at first scattered but then returned to smash the windows of Henry's car as he sped away.

'Mr Darko Kwakye had in fact been hit in the right shoulder, but he didn't realise it,' said Mr Heywood.

'He went down the street and got into a car with two others. He realised as he was travelling away there was blood on his shirt and a bullet hole.'

The gun was found hidden in a sock with traces of Henry's blood on it during a police search of a house.

Henry, of Battersea, South-West London, denied he was the gunman, but was convicted of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life, possession of a prohibited weapon and unlawful wounding. He was acquitted of attempted murder.

Jailing him, Judge Christopher Moss said the offence of bringing a loaded firearm into a public place and using it should meet with a 'severe prison sentence'.

Mr Heywood asked for the gun to be forfeited but not destroyed, so that the 'novel weapon' could be used for training purposes by the police.

Detective Sergeant Dave Carter, of City of London Police, said: 'They are very dangerous weapons, arguably more dangerous than your average handgun because to the casual glance they look like something different.

'It is not particularly accurate but from a short distance it can be fatal.'

Three years ago in Manchester, suspected gang member Fabian Flowers, 19, fatally shot himself in the head while demonstrating a similar gun in a nightclub.



So... Tired....

I need to find a better job, something where I don't get burnt, soaked and scalded all in the same shift... Something like Blockbusters, or Rogers. Those hours on your feet really get to you when you decide that "Is this what I want to do for the rest of life." So, after only a few weeks of working I'm going back out on a job hunt at places that I would enjoy better. They aren't jobs that I want, they're jobs that I would like much better than working as a cook in a hot kitchen for 7 hours, burning myself with oil steam and giving my face a nice chance for a huge fucking breakout. But this is me, being that I hate having to do any real work for money. But that is how most people are... So I had an epiphany on the Internet today. Great.

Old.. but woke me up

So I've started watching HBO's The Wire

And I actually like it. It's a lot better than the newer Generation Kill, and is written by the same guy. I'm only on the first season, but I have a feeling that it grows and grows. Sort of like Scrubs, but with Scrubs you can jump on in almost any season and still get the show because the writers make it easy for viewers to take breaks and come back with a backstory. But then again, The Wire isn't any Band of Brothers from what I can tell right now. Sure, it may have had a longer run but there isn't that sense of duty that Band of Brothers has with it. I still want more things to do... and I have more music than anyone possibly needs. But now I'm going back to watch more, and maybe do a twosie. :P

Kindom Hearts for the DS?!?!

YESSSS!!!!!! I loved the original KH's series on the PS2, and I still remember the 2 weeks that I didn't turn off my PS2 because it wouldn't save my KH2 file without overwrting my GT4 file. I wish I had never sold those games, but here I am... poor, waiting on my new headphones and tired as hell. Without a halfway decent game to consume me, unless you count Pokemon which I haven't had the heart to pick back up again. Super Mario World turned out to be a huge fail for me, and my PC controller sucks too much to try Mega Man X. Anyways, KH FOR THE DS!!!!! I need sleep, and that's what I'm going to do right now for the sanity of this blog and for my sanity too.

Mmm Perogies

Mhmmm mhhmmmm mmmhmmmhmmmmhmmmhmmmmm mmmmhmmmhmhmhmmmmm mhmhm! mhmhmmmmmhm mmhmm hmmmhmm mmmmm...

It's Official...

My neighbor is cutting his grass with an electric lawn mower with another giant rain storm heading this way. His protection: a bicycle helmet from the 90's. I'm also now poor again, as I have sent off my money for the new headphones! Yea, and I'm going ghetto with the headband pad until i can afford another one. My solution: foam and electrical tape. So now I sit here waiting for it to rain extremely hard so that I can go and play some SNES games. Maybe a few NES games too... there might be a few videos following my adventures into that of what I have never played before.

New Template, Less Annoying for me

If you looked at the time stamps and title on the old template, it was all lower case. IT DROVE ME INSANE. So I decided to try and fix it, but the best solution was going to a completely new template that isn't as annoying on my end. And I've figured out that I can't fly my new Havoc Heli at all anymore, I used to be good at flying them though... need more practice!

I broke down after getting paid

And I bought myself a Havoc Heli for $25! Odles of fun will come from this, and many many videos if it doesn't die in 20 minutes. I shall have more on it later, and I got it in the electric blue sweet colour, something similar to the colour of my walls.

New keyboard is great!

Well, I switched back from that Microsoft uneven piece of shit to the normally laid out Logitech keyboard, that feels great. I'm still waiting to get paid, and I'm becoming bored as hell waiting for The Wire to.... finish. But this is my life during the off season, so I wait and wait and wait and wait and get yelled at by friends because I thought they had other plans but really I have no clue what happened.

July 20, 2008

This day was bad...

It went from here

To my beautiful desk for a few minutes

To the front porch where I was going to look at the weather, before getting ready for a bike trip...


I should really do this...

I should start taking pictures of my riding journeys to the center of the Earth on the most boring of days... but there really isn't anything around this flat barren land that is really interesting. Unless you count the dead squirrels in front of my house. Or the little cat that got hit on Thickson. But I digress... I have no clue what digress means... So this is what you get when I post late, no early in the morning. Confusion, dissolution and Bad Boys on one of the movie channels. Oooo laser pointers on guns....

July 19, 2008

Something doesn't taste right with my coffee...

I don't know if it's the extra milk or the lack of sugar, but either way I'm angry now that I can't enjoy my half cup of coffee in peace with people arguing over nothing on the Internet. At least my TV works.

July 18, 2008

Wow, What a day... Now time for a rant!

I haven't had a good rant in a long time, most of the time my rants will evolve from some higher thought about something or other. This one came from all the different places in the world I have to call or contact to get a simple answer. Such as Bell Canada, who decided that only later at night they should open the Canadian call centres. So when I called earlier to sort something out, I got someone from India that can't speak a lot of English and has the crappiest phone and phone connection ever!! At least my second time, after the other person fucked it all up, fixed it for me. I believe that he was from Quebec, so probably the Laval call centre.
But there is a good side to this rant, as I also had some good experiences from people that can actually speak English as their second or third language in their own countries. As you know I'm looking for a cheap pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770's, which I found. Trouble is they don't have the nice leather headband pad, so I have to get one from the local supplier. Beyerdynamic doesn't list them on their site, so I emailed them and found out I have to call Edmonton... I sat there for a minute thinking "WTF?!! Edmonton?!?! How the hell are they going to help me?!!?". Well, I have to call another person that is in Toronto that does private sales.... so that'll happen tommorow.
Oh, you know those damn automated call helper people that companies use to reduce costs? THEY SUCK. Real people are always better to deal with, even if they are annoying, self centered jackasses in real life they have a job to do and they do it better then the "Helpers". Next time I get one of those from a place that I didn't think would have it I'm going to punch a hole in a wall, kick a baby or pet my dog and have a giant maniacal laughing feast while she looks at me with those pretty eyes and thinks that I'm fucked in the head.

Now I'm feeling a bit better! Have a good... whatever...

July 17, 2008

Times are about to be changin round these parts...

As I need a new pair of headphones to deal with the incredibly hot summer fan noises that I never care to mention because it would become the whole centre of most of my posts. But without the fan running, I am destined to sweat and have a +40 C room at 5 in the afternoon. So my compromise is a pair of DT 770's, hopefully I can order them sometime next week and have them for next Friday. Or else I'm going to go on a major rage attack, specifically aimed at the fan that saves me but still makes me want to spoon my ears out.
I feel like watching a movie now, but I don't know what movie. Most likely if I get bored I'll start nitpicking movies just for the hell of it... I got too much time on my hands and not enough crap shoveled on my plate right now to make me motivated to do this though, so it might be a pipedream until someone hits me hard enough to knock some sense into me.

I just gagged...

From the thought of KFC's chicken. That stuff looks awful, most of it tastes awful and people still pay to buy it! Who in their right mind would do that when you can go to A&P or Sobeys and get a whole cooked chicken for $12? Or an Xtra Large pizza for $21.50 from Free Topping Pizza? Am I going insane or is it the world around me thats getting all screwed up in my sleep deprived, caffeine fulled existance on this little blue and green spec?!!

Like people that drive under a kilometre, to get a coffee or to get something to eat. I'd see a purpose if you were hauling a shitload of stuff, but also this is one of the downfalls of living in a country with freedoms and rights. But if I didn't have my freedoms and rights I wouldn't be here bitching about people, so what do I know. All I know is that I'm gonna go dump a few litres of gas on a candle fire and see what happens, and thank the world I live in a free country... by the name of Canada. Wee, that felt nice getting all of that off my chest!

Top Gear 11x04: My Thoughts

There is no other real way to put it, I loved it. But I love all of the insane races that Top Gear does, even though some people think they're staged so that the car wins. The Alfa 8c... oh my god that thing is like pornography that's street legal! Too bad it drives like crap, or it would be a solid gold winner for my dream car... which is reserved for an Audi R8 with the V12 TDi. Anyways, I never watch the Reasonably Priced Car bits because I just don't know who they are most of the time due to the fact that I live an ocean away from them, in a land of straight, flat roads that you can weld your steering column up and you wouldn't hit anything... maybe a moose or a bear. Is there anything else I can say about this episode? No. In my strong opinion, it is one of the best Top Gear races, and a high ranked Top Gear episode in my books.

Back from the doctors

Aaaannnnnnd good news! I got drugs for my eczema! Weeee, steroid cream! And for the people on Skype, my keyboard is loud because of where my mic is. Here's a pic of it's location at them moment:


E3 Current Thoughts, and some other Random crap

As many people know, E3 is in full swing at the moment in the US. I, the fryer of Kentucky's chickens, cannot afford to even look at a plane ticket and an E3 pass pricing. So all I can do is sit here and make comments about what I see on many sites.

The Microsoft keynote was almost a huge bore for me, except for the little gem they threw into it for fun. The new Banjo Kazooie game, and the original Banjo Kazooie game for XBLA. I love these childish platformers, and I have memories of the adventures of Banjo and Kazooie. Now if Micrsoft would get around to putting Goldeneye on XBLA with multiplayer I would be happy.

Now for all of the opinion on the crap I read, I hate the Avatars and the new interface. Hell, I hate the old interfece to an extent. It looks too.... future like. Plus the avatars look like a complete ripoff of the Mii's, sort of like the Wii came out and MS thought "lets copypasta that and make money off it". Guitar Hero.... meh. Rock Band 2.... meh. IPTV system.... well I can't even use that so I'll bitch about it. What about the people that have a country above you?!?!?! We have our own stations like CBC and CTV. I'd kill for CBC on the new Xbox Live TV system, having the ability to have older hockey games and such to be in a pre-listed queue. And anything else that I missed I don't really care about at all.

Then there's the Sony keynote... I wasn't interested so I haven't looked at any of it until.... now. They did something amazing!!! God of War 3!
I have to admit I loved the first 2 GoW's, and this looks like it'll be a great game. I might have to actually buy a PS3 to play this lol. I don't really care about the $400 US PS3, and the PSP. So that's it for Sony.

Nintendo, from what I'm seeing, is getting a big MEH from my corner. I'm sorry, there really isn't any Nintendo games that hold me beside Pokemon. And I already have that for the DS. Plus the console Pokemons have always sucked, so I don't even bother anymore.

So really someone will notice that I have more about the 360 than anything else, but that's because I stumbled upon the live coverage by G4 one day when there wasn't anything on TV. I own a 360 and I hate the damn thing for it's shitty graphics, slow interface and mostly horrible controls in games that I love. I'm a true born PC gamer, and I just can't play consoles for long before having console sickness. Unless its a true, really fun game like God of War, Forza 2, Crackdown, some of the Final Fantasy's, Kingdom Hearts series, and more I can't remember. These are elite games in my mind, having the abilty to have such a compelling story, yet just the perfect amount of gameplay perfection and cutscene madness included.

But for now, I have to deal with the maggot mess that is the stupid green bag inititive(I think I spelled that wrong lol) and find something to eat because I'M OUT OF JAM! All the other jam went moldy, so I think it's black coffee and cereal and milk. Could be something else. And I have to goto the doctors sometime today to get my eczema(i don't think thats right either) looked at and maybe get something for it. Either way, I'm done for now.

July 15, 2008

Fallout 3 Gameplay: From E3

I'm excited.

Mmmm... I have no jam for toast though....

I guess this will just have to make do... a few double doubles should keep me moving until about 1ish tommorow morning.



Ugh, 4 hours of sleep after a shift doesn't bode well for the rest of the day... I have a feeling that I'll come out of it in a giant wreck heap.

The Story and Build of... THE RATAPAULT

This is somewhat a guide of making the Ratapault, and a little backstory behind it. This might be a little long, so I'll destroy it later to make it less chaotic and a little more readable.

The Ratapault came from a science project to make something that could fling a marshmallow the furthest distance. A lot of ideas that we came up with involved rockets, fire and a very large sling shot. Then we saw a mouse trap and thought it would be fun to try it. It worked, very well, but it only went 5 metres or so. So it was either duct taping 2 mouse traps together or trying out a rat trap.
So we tried the rat trap on its own, but it wouldn't go anywheres because the rat trap has so much torque and so little weight it would flip itself in mid swing. The giant step assembly was the way to counteract the flipping, and from there we got a good 17 metres. But, it sat and the springs/ whole rat trap started to decay. I didn't see this when I went to launch it for the last time today, so the result of the video at the end was quite a shock to me.

Building or making or whatever you wanna call it:
You get a beer cap, undented and in half decent condition, and some duct tape. My duct tape is a nice shade of yellow so that if the beer cap flys off I can find it (and yes the beer cap can fly off if there isn't enough tape on it). Step 1

Next is just showing the Ratatpault in all of it's final glory, with the backwards pikes and the massive wood step design. Step 2

The beer cap MUST be taped on securely or it WILL fly off. I've been hit a few times, and they all hurt. Make sure the tape overlaps the inside of the beer cap, it makes for better setup angles and such.Step 3

This is the whole thing pulled back, ready for a dry fire. Rat traps can break multiple fingers and thumbs with ease, so use caution or it might fire. Also this is a good time to make sure that you did a good taping job. Step 4

Loaded, ready to fire the bright spraypainted marshmallow into oblivion. Use something long and make sure no pets or people are in the way of the ammo, I've been told it hurts. Step 5

And now, the firing and death of the original Ratapault.

And the loud tang right before the 2nd text screen? That was one of the staples that held the springs down. I thought it hit me somewheres, which would be funny but very difficult to explain at the hospital.

Well that's all I've got for now, I think it's time for some TV, a shower and a drink.

Well now it's been a while

I even forgot that I had this thing setup! So heres a little filler of whats happened in the past few months: School, School, School, driving, boring shit, job at KFC, rediscovering the wonders of the Internet, rain, POKEMANS!!!, outdoors, blood, coffee, red ants, oil candle fires, CD Frisbees, Mexico, and finally this crappy keyboard. So I might have quite a few spelling errors because of how much I hate this keyboard.

So thats all that has happened in the past months that I have ignored this blog, and now I'm back! Later I think I might post something about the new Top Gear episode and season... if I remember...

My Youtube filler of the Day

It's... Monty Python and the Holy Grail's Black Knight scene! John Cleese is great in this. Enjoy :)

I'll have something half decent to post tomorrow, maybe not... depends on what the day is like.

First Post and Testing

Testing out the blog, hopefully the colors don't clash too badly. No one will read this, and if someone does thanks for taking a notice.

Many things on this site will be different, and don't expect it to follow a great system of events. It will have some tech in it, some cars, some food, some video games and some of the stuff I like doing. Edit: WHY IS MY NAME SMALL!?!?!?!
