I'm tired....had to wake up ass early today for my phone to get fixed since the Verizon timeframe was between 8am an 8pm.....you'd think those asshats could narrow it down a lil bit....gotta stay up though to watch the final season premiere of The Shield. On other topics....
For those that know of it, or even care about these kinda things in the slightest, pretty much the best Renaissance Festival in the country has started, and this eve I shall discuss with my cohort Melvin about when to go this month. I usually go twice a year, once on Scottish/Celtic weekend (for the red hair rockin, duh), an for Oktoberfest, but duno if I'll have loot for two unless I get a friggin job asap. Lookin for one has sucked so much I'm thinkin of takin the easy route, an trying to be friendly to people as a waiter again for awhile.
Of other note, the Baltimore Comicon is coming up the last weekend of this month, and I wanna hit that up as well. Mainly to once again bug Scott Kurtz, my fav webcomic writer/drawer of PVP, and also to see my homie Kevin again since he said he'll have a table in the artists alley. I wish I had more rare videogames to sell to get fast phat lewt, but I refuse to part with my Fatal Frame series which is about all tha's left that's worth anything. I shall make things happen though, for both the Fest, an Comicon.
On another random ass note, I hate Fox 45 for taking Archies Weird Mysteries off of tv this week. I can totally relate to Archie, aside from having two hotties fight over me. Us redheads gotta stick together, but seems that tv doesn't want us to. I still have Archie meets The Punisher though if I want my fix I suppose.
Anyhow, that's all I gotta say for now. Maybe I'll catnap before Melvin gets here. Current Mood: tired

So this past Friday, during Artscape an whatnots, Melvin, his wifey, an myself managed to make it to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to see Play!. For the one or two people that still pay attention to my LJ....I'm weak. I came SO close to tearing up during the Mario suite, Zelda, might have actually done so durin Castlevania....even the first time the choir was used, during the Metal Gear Solid suite, it almost happened. Or maybe it did sometime durin the night....I'm a man, I can admit I shed tears o sadness during some movies such as Shawshank, an Green Mile, an also tears of joy, like maybe at my most recent trip to the BSO...

Woohoo, got seats Y 108-110 for Play!

My two favorite songs to sing to in Rock Band are of A. (it's obvious if you know me and know my BOC love) Don't Fear The Reaper, and B. Ballroom Blitz - Tia Carrera (or however the fuck her last name is spelled, I don't feel like looking it up for a spell check, the original was way better anyhow)
I'm gonna hafta say that the new Rambo movie is pretty badass. Went over Justins this eve to chill for a bit, an we were gonna watch the new Indy but quality wasn't that hot on it, so he grabbed Rambo instead. Talk about a total bloodbath of a movie. I even somehow hoped for certain kinds of deaths to happen, and they did!!!! Makes me wanna watch some oldschool Rambo movies now....not the cartoon though, since of course that was toned down for wee youngins back in the day such as myself. Think Im'a watch The Onion movie though, or whichever Katt Williams standup is about to come on Comedy Central...gotta offset the mounds of gore with some funny!

Argh....I've got a headache like a mofo right now. I totally blame it on Sci-Fi channel for the garbage they had on tv today (well I guess it's kinda my fault too for leaving it on as background noise). I mean, how in the blue hell do you go from 2 days of Twilight Zone awesomeness, to a day with Uwe Boll movies, and their (better) sequels?? The Resident Evil movies were in there too, but let's face it....those weren't all that hot either. Current Mood: headachey

Hello Livejournal. I haven't updated you in almost a year. I know that you may feel neglected and un-loved, but it's not the truth. I'm just a lazy bastard and figure that people don't really look at you much anymore. Out of all the people on my LJ list, only one or two ever really update theirs anymore anyhow, so it's not just me. Don't worry though, I'll be back again for you soon enough, because I want to get the writing back into my blood, both just the blogging and actual stories. We've been friends for 7 years come next month, and I don't want to let that go to waste. So be prepared you sad and lonely LJ you.

So sad that Horrorfind weekend is all over with now...had a hella fuckin awesome time tho as I have at the past few...I must say, HF is the best, most fun convention I've been to. Other fans are easy to talk to, celebs are always pleasant, always cool shit to buy, and stories to be told too! Bein Udo Kier's first convention he went to, he was hella plastered Saturday night at the costume contest. Always fun to see some celebs cut loose and have a great time. And now (with the exception of one with Malcolm McDowell and I thanks to a corrupt file), ( pics!Collapse )
Now to wait til March for more Horrorfind! It's too damn far away!!

Mmmm, got me a box of Krusty O's cereal today.....a lil disappointed it doesnt have any Razor O's included though....oh's to the well. It's good to wash down with some Buzz Cola!

Someone mind telling me why in this newer Fantastic Four cartoon, the Puppet Master is a black guy with some tattoos and an earring?
|Thursday, June 14th, 2007|
Having never seen seen the first Fantastic Four movie, I won free passes to go see the premiere of the new one tonite at Muvico. Here's hoping for some Galactus bad-assedness!

Today, I didn't go in to work. I woke up and wanted more sleep, so I went ahead and took advantage of that. Rocked me out some Everquest too, and got myself up to lvl 30, woo!!! Then, shit just got weird....
Scooby was upstairs barking his head off, so I figured some mexican or so was leaving a pizza delivery menu in the door and moving on since I didn't hear the doorbell. I figure I'll grab whatever the fuck it is out of the door later, because I'm in the middle of fighting 3 stonegrabbers at once out on Marus Seru. I wanted that lvl 30 dammit! So once I'm done fighting and hafta take a med break, I mosey on upstairs to see why the fuck he's still barking his head off. When I get near the top a stench of roadkill assaults my nose with such ferocity that I almost throw up right there. When I regained my composure, I turned the corner and my jaw about hit the floor when I looked at the door....Scooby was jumping up against it, biting at the hands of some...some thing
that tore through the screen. I mean, it looked like a person, but if horror movies have taught me anything....I know a fucking zombie when I see one. And considering the fact I haven't smoked any weed in awhile either, it was really wigging me out that what I was seeing actually was real. Hoping that I was wrong, I just started yelling a bunch of profanaties at it Kevin Smith style, to see if I could get it out of there, but no soup. Then I got to thinking...."Hey, what about all those weapons I keep buying when I go to the renaissance festival?" So I skedaddle my ass back down to my room, and locate that skull headed mace of mine Ive always wanted to bash somethings skull in with. While downstairs I hear a loudass THUMP, which pretty much tells me my new friend has made his way into my house. Scooby let out a yelp that made my skin crawl, so I hauled ass upstairs to see this zombie-fucker with its hands around my dogs neck about to try and bite him. I was so pissed off I almost took that assholes head off with a boot to the head...my momentum from running at it and shooting my foot out slammed its head into the corner of the walls and pretty much gave the advantage to me. Then, well then came the gory part that has left some permanent stains on my mace. I'll spare you all the details, beause frankly, I went a bit crazed and swung for at least a good 15 minutes after the thing stopped moving.
After locking up the house and sitting on the couch for awhile to rest, I turned on the tele to see what the fuck exactly was going on. It appears ladies and germs, that this shit is happening everywhere.
Of all the years I've wished to be able to be in a horror movie, now that something like it is really going on....I can't say I'm pleased. I'm more frightened for what the future will bring, between these things running around, and between other normal people snapping. They're probably more dangerous than the zombies are.
I wonder if this evenings power outage for a few hours was related to this mess....or if the horrible storms we had today might have been a cause. I mean, in Frankenstein, it was lightning that reanimated Frankensteins monster, yes? Who's to say the same doesn't apply for the dead beneath the ground if conditions are right?

So I got a call Thursday about the Xbox, and it was an error on the Canadians part when entering his code, yadda yadda, so they will fix my system for me. Sending out their pre-paid box n all that, so hopefully I'll have it all back by after next week. In the meantime, I now have a lvl 18 wood elf ranger back on Everquest! (I can't believe I resorted to playing that again lol)

|I am Steves seething rage...
Okay, I'm hella pissed off. Tuesday night, my 360 gave me the red lights of death, and hasnt worked since. I called their support today to get shit taken care of about sending it back for repairs since it's still under warranty, but guess what....the serial # of the console I purchased on September fucking 17th from Gamestop down the road, is registered to someone in CANADA! WTF?!?!? After ungodly wait times on hold, I'm told that they'll have to investigate it, and I need to call back next Friday unless I hear from them beforehand. This pisses me off because A. I DONT LIVE IN CANADA, and B. Even if next Friday they say I can send it back, yaddayadda, with all the shipping times to and from, I won't be able to play Halo 3 anymore by the time the beta period ends. When Melvin had to send his back for repairs after his died (and he only got the fucking thing in November), they gave him a free month of xbox live. I am going to want more than that for having to deal with this hassle, and so help me god they better give it to me.
Honestly, with all the systems I hear about dying so soon (which is why M$ probably extended the warranty from 90 days to a year), you'd think a class action lawsuit could be filed against them for their shoddy product. I have NEVER had a system die on me over my years of gaming, except my first PS2, which was one that came out launch day and was rented at the Blockbuster I worked at like a bajillion times before I bought it used from there...and even then, it worked for more than a fucking year after I bought it and god knows how many other people played with it. The initial Xbox was a POS, I know since I was workin at Gamestop then and we had returns up the ass, and even demo systems dying left and right in stores...and now this shit. If M$ doesn't basically get on their knees and suck my balls after this crap I'm putting up with, and the well over $1000 I've spent on the system, games, accessories, downloadable content/games/shows/movies....they'll find out what happens when you fuck with the Jonin of the Drunken Ninja Kru.
Go ahead Garrett.....you know you wanna laugh after all the praise I've given the system, and how I'm about to go to Seattle and blow up the M$ HQ....I deserve it. Current Mood: pissed off

Oh shit, goin through deleted mail to un-delete an order confirmation I made, I noticed I deleted somethin else I need to rock out...I got accepted into the Shadowrun MMOFPS beta for the 360! Guess I'll hafta fire that junks up today!
Looks as if our heroes vacation from doing work comes to an end this weekend. Temp Agency asked if I wanted to hit up a place for $12 an hour doin some data entry out in Glen Dirty, so I figgred why the hell not. I hope the extra money over what I made at Chrysler isn't offset much by gas prices though....guess we'll see.

Sorry PS3, but I'll get to play your 'exclusive' Devil May Cry 4 on my 360 when it drops. Does that system have any exclusive title that mean a shit aside from the Metal Gear Solid series or God of Wars?
Colbert Report tonite was fuckin great with Colbert interviewing Willie Nelson an them batteling (yes I misspelled it on purpose) over their ice cream flavors. The end saw Willie givin a performance of 'On The Road Again' an Colbert comin in to rock out with him. Great shit.
4 hours an 40 minutes til I can download Symphony of the Night!!
In the next week or two I plan on goin to see a few movies cheap matinee style while I'm jobless. 300, Behind the Mask, Dead Silence, and perhaps TMNT as well. I sure the fuck can't wait for Grindhouse to come out on Apr 6th.
Guestlist for the August Horrorfind is pickin up more, with plenty more people from the new Halloween Rob Zombie is doin. According to the webmaster, an dude that gets all the guest...he's just getting started too.
And I'm spent.

|Xbox 360, I love you
Sure, you don't have something where I'll be able to buy virtual couches and crap like that in the future, but in the past 3 weeks, and come next week, you are giving out the BEST downloadable games (all but 1 with online multiplayer) that anyone could hope for. First we get Alien Hominid, then Worms, this week, the 89 TMNT Arcade game, and next week it has been confirmed that I will be having Castlevania:Symphony of the Night to play on you. How sweet it is.
