Tell me the person who spoke these lines, without searching. [17 Dec 2006|05:25am]
"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

Wikipedia [27 Sep 2006|06:27am]
[ mood | i has mono. ]

I trust we all know what it is, online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, etc.
Well, I've been reading around and there's a lot of criticism of the way wikipedia functions behind the scenes. Observe the following links if you care:

http://www.kapitalism.net/thoughts/wikipedia.htm <--Case of the "Democracy" of wikipedia suddenly vanishing.

Fuck you, Symantec [19 Sep 2006|05:03am]
This time this rant is incredibly valid.

Every time windows updates itself, Symantec's Norton Internet security ceases to properly work. I tried updating Norton itself, but this did not help. The problem is thus:

Twenty, thirty minutes after startup of my computer, any new programs attempting to connect the internet subsequently fail because Norton has thoroughly stalled. Attempting to open the internet security window becomes useless because the process stalls. If you try again, you're given a window with a cut of whatever was onscreen before this massive failure opened. This also causes my computer to be unable to shut down because the process simply -will not close.-

This is not right. If I happen to want support, I have options.....options such as: install java runtime environments that were a bitch on my old computer. B) Email them. No. Or, my personal favorite, pay $19.95 to get phone support. If I'm paying $19.95 I better get phone sex too. I'm going to start looking into alternatives to this shit because I simply do not want to have to deal with crap like this on my rediculously expensive machine. I've never been madder at a corporation.

I have just seen why I'm afraid to go into journalism. [14 Sep 2006|02:39am]

Horrible news. But what I'm referring to is this:

That's bad enough. It will also be replayed over and over and over and over.
But wait. It surely can't get worse.
(Watch witnesses describe escaping through pools of blood -- 3:44)
OH CHRIST WHY DID I SPEAK TOO SOON. You're fucking kidding me. You wonder why I despise mainstream media? There. The same people who who run this company are the same people who will claim that videogames are too graphic and stupid ignorant shit along that line. Yet, on CN-FUCKING-N, I can (Watch the scene inside the college, captured on a cell phone -- :50) This is taking fucking reporting too far. If it makes it on air, it'll be seen ad nauseum. You think those people want to see that again? Live through it again? I'm fucking disgusted. Fuck you, CNN.

I guess it was bound to happen, eh? [26 Jul 2006|02:38am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

So its early in the morning, and I've just come home from a night of trivia, Clerks 2, and random driving. Anyway thats besides the point. I had my radio on 96 rock, as is my usual station. But this wasn't what caught my attention. The song on it was none other than "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana.

Now, I have no problem with that song. Besides the fact that its overplayed, that is. Anyway, I began wondering how soon it'd be till other more modern songs are considered "classic" rock, as 96 rock -is- a classic rock station. In fact, I'll leave this question to you: What'll be the next suprise on 96 Rock?

Microtransactions in gaming: A debate with myself. [10 Jun 2006|06:02pm]
[ mood | bored ]

There's some concern with microtransactions upon Xbox Live and the upcoming PS3 Online Framework (My name, not theirs.) I was thinking the other day, and I figured there's pros and cons to this depending on the genre of game you're primarily going to play. And so, I'll debate each genre I feel like writing about.



Sports.

Pros - I can't see any, really.

Cons - What could you have? New stadiums? Who cares? How about upgraded player stats? Well that just lets Little Timmy Who Has Mommy's Credit Card go apeshit and buy the best team ever. The themes and pictures currently available on xbox live are useless unless you're die-hard for a team.


Racing:

Pros - New Cars, New Tracks, New Customization Options (if its that kind of game.) And if you're really wanting to make things interesting, allow users to create graphics or whathaveyou for a car and upload it so everyone can use it. This is already used by the Tony Hawk series, though there's no cost for the items.

Cons - Little Timmy strikes online again, having his shiny Ferarri he bought blow by the Nissan I earned. Little Timmy also laughs at me and calls me a noob. I play for four more hours to earn a Ferarri. Little Timmy has already bought a new car because he's tired of the Ferrari. I cannot compete, and I have a losing record due to a spoiled child.


RPGs

Pros - Assuming you're dealing with an open RPG like oblivion, the options are almost endless. So far, the new content is excellent. Frostcrag Spire is a beautiful sight. As long as the content is of high quality, it'll always be worth while.

Cons - How could you add on to something like FF7? Or Earthbound? Linear RPGs typically end. And sidequests are there from the beginning. If I beat the game and see a new sidequest to download, would I have to play through again to be able to go through it?


MMORPGS:
Pros - Expansion packs..aren't microtransactions.

Cons - Timmy PVP's the hell out of everyone with his 4 dollar Mithril Jewel Encrusted Diamond Edged Sword Of Maiming +2 (EXCLUSIVE PURCHASED BONUS). Nothing can penetrate his Godly Plate of the Whale (Bonus points to you if you recognize this.)

Shooters, Action Games

Pros - New levels for SP/MP would be great if thats -all- you sold.

Cons - Only if you sold weapons or upgrades to weapons or what have you would you have a problem from Little Timmy.

Warning: This is about how much I love my car. [11 May 2006|04:10pm]
[ mood | Mmmmmmmm......car.... ]

I really do love my car. I truly do have the Ultimate Driving Machine. It may be 9 years old but you'd never know driving it. As nimble as it ever was, it begs to go faster than you're legally supposed to to. It lovingly does what I ask it to do, moving a tad quicker when I shift as it gracefully moves along. Oh, how taking a turn at just the point of losing control makes you feel so -alive.- Today I was stuck behind someone I didn't want to be behind. I accelerated into a lane that was becoming a turn lane, and much to my dismay, had a cardboard box ahead. This ultimately cut down my room to make the pass, but I shifted to fourth, gave it a wee bit more throttle and went by and back into my lane of choice. Was it nescessary? No, not at all. But nowhere else do I get the sensation I get when I drive that car.

I was TOTALLY on a boat yesterday [16 Apr 2006|04:37am]
[ mood | Yeah man. ]

My friend's aunt has a ski boat. Its from roughly the mid eighties, judging by the wicked vynil graphics on the side that scream "I CAME FROM THE GOD FORSAKEN 80'S!" Anyway. We left my house at roughly...12 or so. Got to his place to pick some shit up ten minutes later. Left 20 minutes after that. Got to his aunt's house. Unloaded some stuff. Left the trailer of furniture. Proceeded to boat place. Boat is not in clear sight. We must call people. Waiting ensues. An employee of the boat place greets us. He's maybe in his early 50's and has a t-shirt depicting Jesus on the cross with wording underneath which states: "I love you this much." I do not comment within his earshot. He has a gun on his belt. I'm not sure why. We get the boat after a rather funny situation in which we were unable to remove a different trailer from his truck's hitch. We take the boat. We get gas for the boat. Gas is expensive. 30 bucks put us at half a tank we find out, though we don't know how much we had to begin with. Pondering ensues. We get to the ramp. We put the boat in. My friend has forgotten to put the plug in the boat. We bring the boat up. We drain the boat. Nobody laughs at us. At least not that we saw. We get the boat on the water. The engine has a horrible idling problem. What I mean is, it refused to idle. Idle=Stall=Battery Running=Not fucking good. Once it moved, it was nice. The ride was rough but a fuckin' blast. I got to drive. I stalled several times. We chilled in a small cove for a while. It was nice. I swam to shore and demolished my shin on a rock. It will be a pretty bruise a few hours from now. Putting a boat that doesn't idle on a trailer is a pain in my ass. Never again will I be a part of that bitch of an operation. It was a good day though. Boats are a blast.
