I'm off to Ohio from 8AM today till sometime late Sunday(I thought it was till Tuesday but I was mistaken!) to celebrate my cousin's marriage and my birthday....I'm getting too old, dang nabit! Current Mood: awake

|Altair = win
Got myself a (used) copy of Assassin's Creed yesterday! ($20!) WOW. I am floored by the look of it, and the gameplay is also QUITE awesome. I've heard it's kinda short, but I wouldn't know as I haven't played it much yet....but who CARES. Even if it IS short, the narrative seems pretty bloody brilliant so far :)
By the way, I don't get selling games, especially if you really enjoy them....If I really like a game, I love playing it over and over. I mean I GUESS I understand if you mistakely buy a game and loathe it...but yeah, don't sell a game you played for a week and beat...That's lame. Current Mood: pleased

December 8, 1936 – June 3, 2009http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001016/
My favorite role of his was, of course, as the title character in Kill Bill. It was the first time I'd ever seen a performance of his, and it's one I'll always enjoy. He will be missed. Current Mood: bummed

I've felt like shit for months, hence the even lengthier time between posts...
Good news is I'm getting a PS3. Current Mood: hopeful

|I want a new drug...
I'm on these meds that one of the side effects is having dreams...and y'know it's really weird having dreams EVERY night that you remember....Like last night I dreamt this guy broke into my friends house and he popped out of the bathroom to hold us all up, and he took my wallet (and therefor would know where I live) and said, "See you soon." And then later he busted in my house (except it wasn't where I live in real life, it was this weird apartment) as I charged the door with a bat, cause I knew he was coming, and he shot me in the chest. It's not substantially enjoyable to be having such dreams. Current Mood: aggravated

|This is REAL
Thanks to my friend Bjørn for pointing this out to me.
"Introducing the Barack Obama action figure…straight from Japan. Barack Obama is already a hero not only for Americans, but also for the Japanese. The Obama action-figure can be found on the shelves of many japanese toy-stores, together with patriotic accessories, like the American flag and changeable palms, to better express himself."http://www.damncoolpictures.com/2009/01/barack-obama-action-figure.html Current Mood: amused

|What a jip!
The Dark Knight has been robbed! Not only did it not receive the Best Picture and Best Director nominations it deserved, the worst of all is that it received no Best Screenplay nomination. This after a man who WRITES screenplays has been saying for months it's one of the best screenplays he's seen put to film in years. Besides Heath of course getting the nod for Best Supporting Actor, DK received most of the technical nominations of course (though I hope it loses the two sound nominations to WALL E, Benjamin Burtt is truly deserving of those awards).

Over the past two years I've kept track in notepad of movies I wanted to see in the theater, who I saw them with, and whether they met my expectations upon having viewed them. I thought it would be a good idea to keep this going this year, though in a public setting as well, and keeping track what I ended up seeing on DVD as well. More than likely more than half of those posted won't be viewed till DVD release. I've included three movies released in December I still want to see and I plan to do updates on this every three months, filling in what I actually ended up seeing the preceding 3 months and then updating what I plan to try to see the next 3 months. So, from January to March, thus far, is as follows:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
My Bloody Valentine
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
Friday the 13th
Youth in Revolt
A Perfect Getaway
I Love You, Man
Monsters vs. Aliens
Note: I do intend to view more foreign and indie releases this year. The preceding list is only taking into account the wide releases I know of for now. Current Mood: dorky

I dunno if it's the turkey chemicals hitting me in a different manner or if it's just that everyone around me has someone, but I feel about as lonely and depressed as I've felt in a long time. Bleh. Current Mood: restless

Call me crazy, but I've had this idea for a very strange musical in my head for years. I've begun writing the ideas down, trying to form more to the story, locations, and characters for the first time. Obviously I won't state publicly what that idea is, as I'm paranoid that someone will steal it. You could strongly suggest my influences on this idea are Tim Burton, Bill Tiller, Stephen Sondheim, Monty Python, Doc Hammer, and maybe a bit of twisted Walt Disney....More to come... Current Mood: creative

|Palin's Reputation "Ruined" by Fey
Taken from http://www.imdb.com/news/ni0582817/
'Comedienne Tina Fey has been blamed for the Republican party's recent slip in the polls ahead of the U.S. presidential election, after impersonating vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin on comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live.
According to a recent poll taken by the Washington Times, the "Tina Fey effect" has turned supporters off the Alaskan governor and her running-mate, presidential candidate John McCain.
Political scientist Jerald Podair tells the New York Post: "Presidential impersonators do influence elections, and in this one, Tina Fey is well on her way to ruining Sarah Palin's political career. In a political culture that takes its cues from popular culture, a good impersonator may be worth a million votes.
"The parodies may have done a bit of damage. People remember Gerald Ford through the prism of Chevy Chase. Ford was among our most athletic presidents, and he had a wide-ranging knowledge of public-policy issues. But because of SNL, many came to think of him as a buffoon."
But the reviews have yet to effect Palin's own praise of Fey, with rumours still swirling the politician will make a cameo alongside the comedienne on the show.
Earlier this month, Palin told reporters she would be open to make an appearance, adding: "I love her, she's a hoot (fun) and she's so talented. It would be fun to meet her, imitate her and keep on giving her new material." '
I think Palin makes herself look plenty stupid on her own...

A few days ago I decided it's time to replay some games, mostly because A: I don't have a PS3 yet and B: I can't afford right now to go get anything new for the PC...So I started out with Baldur's Gate since I never finished it and decided to use a portrait from online, since there isn't nearly enough to pick from in the actual game...I think this was a pretty appropriate choice:
I also plan to play over:
The Monkey Island Series
Gabriel Knight 1
Conquests of the Longbow
Broken Sword 1 and 2
Quest for Glory IV (if I can get the damn thing to work)
Suffice to say, I'm a VERY oldschool games type of guy... Current Mood: nostalgic
