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.

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...

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!".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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,, 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.

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.
