Ooops Weekend and Future Blog Plans

Hey guys, my bad for not posting anything or checkin up on you fine folks during the weekend. It was Hellish in between Halloween and I had a good friend turn 21. So yeah, sorry I was neglectful baby, I swear it wont happen again...please dont go! I can change!

...just foolin.

So yeah, that aside, this week had me thinking about this blog and how Im delivering stuff. And I don't feel that I'm going about this in the most entertaining and efficient manner possible. So with that in mind I've got plans. To make several new blogs that is! Differentiate between them ya know? I get a feel that with just this one, Im not being fair to everyone. So Im thinking of making at least three other blogs. One dealing with music and another dealing with Movies and one with Videogames. How does that sound? I'd love your input. Once I make them I gonna be able to update them all fairly often (because god I am such a blabbermouth right?) and if things go well, I'll keep them that way. If I have some issues, I could just combine some of them ya know?

So yeah, Give me some feedback, would you all be interested?

Oh yeah since this update doesn't really have content, heres a funny gif i found.

Con Air: Possibly one of the best movies ever

Man today was looooooooooonnngg. Fortunately my night class ended without me dying and when I got home I cooked up some rice and sausage. Now what made the meal really enjoyable was what was playing on my tv. Con Air. Man oh man I love that movie, and it totally made my night having it show up to say hi to me on television. So Im gonna review it...
Noooo...not this...

So basically Nicholas Cage is an Army Ranger from Alabama. One night he goes to visit his pregnant wife at the bar she works at and she's getting harassed by a bunch of redneck drunks. Later they go outside and try to jump him for verbally defending her inside and possibly harm her. Cage uses his Ranger skills and incapacitates all of them. However he is sentenced to like 8 years in prison for using government granted awesomeness to defend his wife and himself. After waiting his time in prison he gets to be a free man, but as luck would have it John Malcovich and a million other awesome people take over the prison plane and set about trying to make their own escape. Since we all know Nicholas Cage is never an evil bastard, its safe to assume that he tries to stop those oh so dangerous criminals...and thats as much as I'm gonna say without spoiling it for those of you who haven't watched...

Oh yeah thats more like it

Otherwise on to the ratings!

Cast: 10/10!!! Includes Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich, John Kusach, Ving Rhames, Nick Chinlund, Steve Buscemi, Dave Chapelle, and Danny Trejo off the top of my head!
Action: 9/10 Takes awhile to pickup for you adrenaline junkies, but once it starts youll be holding in piss not to missout on some of those scenes.
Pacing: 10/10 Very logical and not rushed, this could very well have happened in 1997 lol
Plot: 10/10 Simple concept. What if prisoners took over a plane? Excellent Delivery of that plot!
Acting: 10/10 See any duds in the cast list? I didnt think so.
My favorite thing: Seeing Steve Buscemi contained like Hannibal Lecter lol.

 I do wish we could chat longer, but... I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye.

If you've seen it it again. If you haven't seen it, go watch!

StarCraft 2, Everything I'd Expect After 10 Years

Man my day was pretty dull. Luckily this afternoon I met up with an old pal of mine and we hung out for a bit. Checked out this Dairy Queen nearby, man I did not know those guys had stuff besides icecream. The left side of their menu looked like burger king or some shit.

Anyway on toooo......STARCRAFT 2!!!!

This man's estimated survival time: 15 Seconds

Whoa this game is awesome. Bet you're wondering why? Heres why, they stuck their guns, thats why. Okay let me clarify, I DID NOT PLAY THE CAMPAIGN. I don't know how that is. I am talking MULTIPLAYER. Multiplayer was awesome because it shows that the game really stuck to the original in terms of mechanics. Sure there are some new units (which are awesome in my opinion, Mothership, Vikings, Marauders etc etc) but the biggest difference is in graphics. Graphics which by the way, look beautiful. Oh and the online community is the same too lol, that hasn't changed in the last decade, I wonder why though lol. My only real beef with the multiplayer part of this game is the music. They've got like some easy listening, alternative rock thing going on...I don't feel its appropriate for a futuristic, science fiction, RTS war game. 

All in all

Story : N/A
Graphics: 10/10
Gameplay: 10/10 (very easy to pickup from the last one)
Online: lol/lol same as ever
Music: 5/10 (sometimes comforting, other times you just wanna open your music player and do your own shit)

Hopefully, if RTS is your thing, you get a copy of this.

Have fun everyone!!

Donkey Kong 64

So heres the Donkey Kong Post I just mentioned in the other post.

As I've mentioned before, Ive pulled out my old N64, gotta bunch of good games on it too that Im gonna talk about. Late this past Saturday I found, blew into, and played DONKEY KONG 64. This game was the shit. Right from the getgo they nab you with the DK Rap. They're all standing there, Donkey, Diddy, Tiny, Lanky, and Chunky (in disco clothes and fro). That oughta be enough for you to know youre in for a ride. Seriously though, this game was fun, smart puzzles, violent (what with the fruit guns lol), interesting powers and full of primates...what more could you want?? Honestly though, I played the first couple levels, fun stuff. Later on I played multiplayer with the friends, frantic fun. Also the only other time its acceptable to get pissed off for people lugging fruit at you other than...uhhh....real life?

Honestly though, if youre looking for an adventure that isnt too heavy or stressful on ya (god with all the war games im playing i swear im actually gonna end up with PTSD) and loads of wicked fun along with some good old fashioned comedy, fish this gem out and play it.

The Weekend of Zombies

Ooooppss...totally forgot to play with the blog this weekend. My bad. For starters I had that zombie walk that I mentioned earlier, which was AWESOME and it also lasted all weekend, hence my neglect. It was pretty wicked, all the zombies were chillin downtown and doing some cool stuff, ya know, performance arts shit, like contortionist, belly dancers and what not. Went with my girlfriend and two other friends, we got zombified for free, it was pretty cool. Towards the end of Friday night, we ended up having a huge march down the area with the leaders carrying a white coffin. On Saturday there were some bands playing at this Rock bar. Totally fell in love with this band called "Psychostik" wicked stuff. And there was this band whose lead singer was "Early" from Adult Swims Squidbillies. No joke. That dudes pretty funny if his songs are any indication. Again everyone was zombified for this shit too. pretty cool all in all. Not bad for my first zombie march.

Oh, cleaned the house did some grocery shopping...nothing too good today.

Protip: Its totally more efficient and economic to buy meat in bulk. Get like a month's worth and meat, and a big plastic tub. Oh and buy spices and olive oil. Go home, put that shit in the tub, mix it all with the spices and oil. Then separate however much you need for a meal into separate ziplock baggies and freeze that shit. Take it out on a day you wanna eat, let it thaw while you go to work or school. Come back, and cook that on the stove.......or if youre like me, grill it. Honestly, invest in a George Foreman grill or something like it. Cooks any meat in no more than 10 minutes. Like 7 minutes for steak and porkchops, and 5 minutes for chicken. Pretty good stuff. That grill is like my best investment right now. So prices...
like $30 of meat for a month
like $12 dollars of spices for like 6 months? depends on you i guess
like $5 dollars for a tub
like $70-$100 for a grill.

Trust me this will save you cash. On saturday I took my girl friend to a chinese restaurant and that shit was like $30 dollars and we got water! So yeah, eating at home like this is definitely a wiser investment.

Anywho I was gonna talk about Donkey Kong 64 but since this post has enough shit, i feel, Ill just post it in another one.

I'd Do Anything for Flesh, But I Won't Do That

Can I eat your brains tonight?

Kudos if you remember the flash cartoon where those lines came from, if you couldn't tell, they're zombie jokes. Ah yes zombies, the representation of a large, unfeeling, unthinking, mass of people. The opposite of humanity and living. "The Walking Dead" if you will (also the name of an awesome comic book for those of you interested, trust me, you won't be disappointed). Romero's metaphor for communism then consumerism, yes zombies certainly have a big place in our culture, especially now that Halloween is on its way. 

So my city is having its first ever zombie walk. I've always kind of wanted to do a zombie walk, ya know dressin up all makeup and dead and just shambling around public places. One itsy problem with this one though, its sponsored by a charity and its taking place alongside a music festival in our downtown area. Not that I hate music festivals or anything, trust me i love those, but there will also be vampires having a masquerade inside one of the big fancy buildings and of course, theyll be treating us zombies like second class citizens seeing as how we're not allowed in unless we're waiters. Although I do find that hilarious. 


zombies zombies zombies

I love em, played EVERY Resident Evil, read the books, endured the movies. Big fan of Romero's movies, or any zombie movie, even looked up some Voodoo for more crazy zombie connection. Check the Walking Dead comic for more zombie fun...or if youre willing to see what happens to your friendly neighborhood Spider Man when he gets infected, check out "Marvel Zombies".

Yeah zombies rule!!

...but part of me is afraid that they might go the way of "vampires" in Twilight.
"His body will decay, but his love never will" LOL

Perfect Dark on N64

Old school (for some of us anyway) videogame time! Two words...Perfect Dark! I pulled out my n64 the other day, played this awhile ago and DAMN!! This game was great, and a real real step to what we consider modern shooters today. I'd say GoldenEye was the prototype, but Perfect Dark is what modern FPS truly evolved from. Weapons with secondary fire? Yup Perfect Dark. Enemies that talk and taunt and even cower? Perfect Dark, yup. Although its fun to note that enemy AI in fps games hasnt changed all that much in years.

Overall I'd say that its kinda sad that the newer generations won't be able to go back and truly enjoy this like some of us did. Sure they could set it for download, but the kids wouldnt truly appreciate it. In my dream theyd remake it with a lot of other older games...but I doubt thatll ever happen.

On the positive side, the shooters that are comin out now are pretty wicked fun too! What with Reach and the new COD coming out, Im not complaining or anything!

Transport Security Administration on Airlines

Man I love the airlines...nah not really. I've got some Colombian family that have been vacationing down there for a few weeks now. Was talking to my cousin (who's been staying with us) and he got an email from their airline requesting some info for the TSA or Transport Security Administration or somethin. Now these people are VERY American right? Its just his mom that's got any connection to the country (though she's a native born US citizen) and shes been using this airline since the early 90s. And they've held her up EVERY SINGLE TIME. Now the TSA wants more info on her? Christ what a headache...if she ever tried smuggling anything she'd definitely be caught...but she never has (as far as i know lol). Ah well, I'm crying a lot for something that's not directly my problem i know, but Im sad because she used to bring back food and stuff but last time they confiscated it, and its probably gonna happen this time too...

I swear its worse to have any Colombian connection on an airline that it is to be wearing a turban!
just messing forgive my political incorrectness

Anyone else have very consistently annoying airline issues?

The Simpsons and their newer crap?

Yeah so I've been watching a lot of simpsons with my girlfriend. That show is something Ive always loved and me and my dad used to watch it every time it came on, which if you remember, was A LOT. Anywho I'm watching it with her, we've reached most of seasons 1-12 on Dvd, and then we watch it when it comes on tv. I think she enjoys the later seasons more and I dont know why. The older ones were just setup better in my opinion. Jokes and punchlines were more strategic, character development, etc. blah blah ya know already. Im not gonna preach about the show anymore. But im mainly curious to know what people think about the newer compared to the older.

BTW my favorite episode has always been the one where Bart goes all Daredevil and the jump over Springfield Gorge. Rich stuff.

Also Futurama's always good fun.

Friday the 13th

Since Halloween is rolling around I'm seeing a lot of horror movies on tv. Just the other day I saw Friday the 13th and thought to myself "It is hilarious how our standard of horror changes," given that this movie is from the 80s, today it doesnt hold much more than a good laugh. What have we got now? SAW (some crazy guy you might accidentally piss off is gonna murder you), My Bloody Valentine (good old slasher but way more pretty), and i dunno etc. What passes as horror these days anyway? Being legitimately scared, or just some good old fashioned snuff. Who knows.

have an enjoyable halloween

Fallout New Vegas

Experience all the sights and sounds of fabulous New Vegas, brought to you by Vault-Tec, America's First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation. Explore the treacherous wastes of the Great Southwest from the safety and comfort of your very own vault: Meet new people, confront terrifying creatures, and arm yourself with the latest high-tech weaponry as you make a name for yourself on a thrilling new journey across the Mojave wasteland.

Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas.
It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves, and make more than an enemy or two along the way.
As you battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon drenched Vegas Strip, you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, special weapons, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare “winner takes all” and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3.

This game is gonna be the bomb. I got it pre-ordered already and Im going to be playing pretty nonstop. Expectations, Graphics: 10, Gameplay: 10 (Unless you're a diehard fan of the older ones, even so give this a shot), Replayability: Im guessing its gonna be 10 since theres so much to do. That and we can pretty much expect expansions. So this will stay gold for years to come.


rutgers player paralyzed

Eric LeGrand has already underwent emergency surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center. Doctors, some of the most accomplished ones in the field tried to stabilize the spine. LeGrand's spirits were as good as can be expected, and he was cognizant of all of his visitors.

Pitt will try to beat Rutgers this week when the two teams meet at Heinz Field but the Panthers are all rooting for at least one Scarlet Knights player - junior defensive lineman Eric LeGrand who was paralyzed below the neck while making a tackle Saturday in the Scarlet Knights 23-20 overtime win over Army.
The Pitt athletic department has created a banner with the message "Pitt is pulling for Eric LeGrand" and it will hang at the Petersen Events Center, then it will be moved down in the Student Union later in the week.
Pitt's players, students and members of the university community at large are being encouraged to sign the banner and offer words of encouragement and it will then be on display at Heinz Field Saturday for the game near the student section.

Despite his injuries, LeGrand is remaining hopeful and will soon be expected to make healthy progress.

tmz, the superficial, tmj, justin bieber assault, 

Tire tracks in the sand show where Junior Seau's SUV went driving off a cliff on Monday. Police are still trying to figure out what caused the accident . The former NFL linebacker is hospitalized with minor injuries.

Seau, 41, who retired this year from the New England Patriots, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Scripps La Jolla Hospital, according to the Carlsbad Police Department.
Police received an emergency call about 8:42 a.m. Monday about a vehicle veering off the road at Carlsbad Boulevard at Solamar Avenue.
"Preliminary investigation shows the vehicle left the roadway and travelled over the cliff, landing on the beach below," Carlsbad police officials said in a prepared statement. "The vehicle was only occupied by the driver, a male who was identified as Junior Seau ... Investigation is continuing into how and why the accident occurred."
Authorities would not comment on whether the collision was related to Seau's arrest hours earlier or whether it was caused by something else. He had been arrested at 12:20 a.m. in Oceanside on suspicion of an alleged assault on his live-in girlfriend.

Thusly Seau's accusation of assault may have been the driving factor behind his little accident. With all this Seau is believed to make a full recovery, however, his relationship may not.

It has often been said that horrible or distressing events such as violence can cause ghostlike interference. It has even been said that crystalline objects like quartz or other gems can record the psychic images of such events. Sometimes ghostly figures can be observed in such areas.

If either of these theories holds water, then Wilton must have ghosts in spades. The town is built on an enormous quartz formation, and it has enough tragic history to put many other ghostly hot spots to shame. To trace the paranormal events that have occurred in this town, we first have to go way back to the late 18th century. In 1773, the residents of Wilton determined they were in need of a new meetinghouse. In April of that year, the town voted to provide six barrels of rum, a barrel of brown sugar, half a box of lemons and two loaves of sugar in order to fortify the men who would be raising the building.

At times the souls of those who have yet to pass can still be seen wandering during the late hours of the night. Many still seeking to fulfill a purpose not completed during their lifetimes.
