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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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).

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
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!".

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.

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.

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
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 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
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
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

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.
August 6, 2008
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.
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.

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.

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.
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 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.'
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.'

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
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.
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!
July 16, 2008
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.

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

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!?!?!?!
