    • Merry Christmas!

      Apache64

      Well it's been a year to the day since my last journal, seems a bit fitting though. I've been out of touch with the RvB community but keeping up on Rooster Teeth itself. The Drunk Tank is good stuff.

      Anyways, I just wanted to wish everyone merry Christmas, happy holidays and new year. I wish the best for all in their lives and endeavors.

      Godspeed, and merry Christmas.

      Hey just putting this up to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and New Year.

      Well, I wish you all good luck and happiness now and in the coming year! :) If you're feasting have a good feast, if you're opening presents I hope you get what you wanted, and most important I hope you all have those around you who you value most. Now go, scoot! Someone somewhere is eating your share of some type of food.

      "Are you still there?" Heres something interesting then! My Xbox red ringed the other day, Microsoft gives the best gifts. Haha! Well, back to last Gen. for me. I think i'll wait till after Christmas to inquire about it. My over all feeling is not bitterness but instead annoyance. I had a lot of fun with the console and now when I think of something I want to play I can't. Bah!

      Well, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good fight! On Xbox Live I assume. Ya jerks. <- (Caution Fake Bitterness not to confused with Real Bitterness. Real Bitterness may include fire and pillaging.)

      Heres an interesting anecdote.

      Well I was replying to a question about a movie on youtube and hey the guy seems normal enough. I figure i'll check out his homepage as I do from time to time with other users. Well guess what his homepage is littered with? Pokemon, lol cats, dirty dirty pron, words spelled with numbers? No to all, that's right you guessed it, neo-nazi crap. Dear God I have got to remember to check peoples' pages before talking with them. Oh and I do mean littered, it's everywhere, in his description, in his videos, in his past times, it's like his whole existence is based around hate. Now for some reason i'm afraid of getting nazi viruses on my computer.

      Ah the internet, how troublesome.

      In case you missed it like I did i'm linking the second campaign Trailer. The opening is the same but then it's all new. An interesting change i'd say. They have me excited. Oh and i'll add in the newish Halo Wars trailer just to be sure.

    • Journal Entry!

      9 years ago

      Apache64

      So what's up?

      Well I haven't been on that much. A lot of interesting things keep happening with this site though. I have a lot of journals from those few I watch to read. I have threads I watch with posts in the hundreds. So I have a lot to look at...or get lazy and give up on.

      I've bought games here and there; Battlefield: Bad Company, Soul Calibur IV, and Penny Arcade. I have games i'm thinking about getting like; Spore,Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Castle Crashers.

      The whole politics thing is starting up and hey even Red vs. Blue has even joined in! This will be the first year I am able to vote. I said to myself I wouldn't mention politics on this site but i'll only say a little. I will not state my beilefs or viewpoints. The reason for this is I don't need half/more/less of the people here or there to hate me for it. I respect others opinions but I have my own and am entitled to them. All I really have to say is vote or don't vote for what you do believe in and be civil with each other. Basically just "Be Kind, Please Rewind." I do intend to vote though. Sorry for the political PSA and the giant grammatically incorrect paragraph. Now back to stupid jokes and topics.

      So there are some viruses on this little computer. The one I know of isn't being picked up by the antivirus system. Though it doesn't seem very harmful. More of a joke. Even so a complete system reboot seems in order. I've been holding off because i've been lazy with it. Might do it tonight, though it will take a long time. Result: Oh another virus the computer won't delete. Great.

      In closing I do intend to read journals but it might take a while and i'm most likely to reply to the newest ones. So, later! :D

    • Portal: A Day in the Life of a Turret

      9 years ago

      Apache64

      Well I haven't done a journal in a while...

      This is something you might find interesting if you haven't seen already. It's a short machinima about well the day in the life of two Portal turrets. I think it's pretty funny. Youtube link.

      Portal: A Day in the Life of a Turret
      The author of this machinima has more comical machinima based in Counterstrike. (I think it's Counterstrike...)

      Meh, i'm too lazy for journal updates. I'll do more links maybe.

    • Merry Christmas!

      9 years ago

      Apache64

      It's the time of year we all come together to worship...a tree! Also it's prophet Santa.

      Anyways it's a little before Christmas Eve so I wanted to wish everyone a happy Christmas Eve and a Merry Christmas. I hope the family gatherings are good and crazy in a good way!

      unrelated sidenote: If anyone saw the second picture in my last journal no that was not some kind of stupid joke. It was replaced by what I am guessing was a security measure against linking pictures.

      Have a great Holiday! Seriously though whats with the tree? Maybe I should ask the Jesus fish...

    • Halo-ween!

      10 years ago

      Apache64

      Well it's like Halloween but with guns. Though it still has ghosts! Also I think Bungie is releasing a new map on Halloween so that truly makes it Halo-ween. I suppose it will cost money...nuts. Wonder if i'll be able to get it... If I do i'm bound to be messing around with it on Halo-ween.


      Hmm...short Journal.

    • The Legend of Halo-Da

      10 years ago

      Apache64

      ...no that does not make me Master Link...


      Well coming off being sick (I think I had a cold...) I went back to Halo 3 and passed on Legendary. It was alright for the most part but I did die a lot on Tsavo Highway and started to hate it for that. It was this one spot stuck on a hill up against a Wraith, two Fuel Rod Cannons, and Infantry support. Dear God that Wraith was accurate. I was able to fight my way out and attack from the side which worked way better but still I died. Finally I found a Sniper Rifle on top of a bridge structure, killed the Infantry, and took out the Wraith from behind. The rest of Legendary wasen't so bad. How do YOU like Fuel Rod Cannons Hunters!

      Well anyways I have all campaign achievements now so next comes some difficult FFA achievements. I am a Spartan Officer now though so thats cool. New helmet. There might have been more but I can't think of it now and this is pretty long anyways...


      ...I think Master Link would be like Master Chief but with a hat and a Claymore...the hat would be on top of the helmet...

      They work pretty alright, I had no quams about grabbing a double case of them like a theif in the night

      The Starbucks Frappachino's worked out to be an amazing price too, but I thought I was just spending to spend at that point

      I didnt see Amps only the hitman... but then again that could be an area thing! We've only hit the one Sam's Club down the street, they are literally all over the place, they probably have different stock.

      I'll have to do some scouting for ya

      My best mugging story from when I drove was a guy in Atlanta who tried to rob me with an old timer pocket knife. He kept making motions for me to roll the window down... when I wouldnt roll down the window, he looked like he was going to cry. I waited my turn for the ramp to clear and drove off with him yelling "AW C'MON!"

      My old drill still holds a place for me, which is why I'm giving it to my best friend so she can use it.

      My Avalanche has a custom crate engine 496

      img_headerapps_496sporttube.jpg

      It has aluminum heads, headers, custom intake, custom transmission, glass packs, custom axles, custom wheels & rims, custom hood, performance computer… The Chupathingy basically eats babies when it’s not sucking down gas @ 8 MPG.

      This car has the most amazing power, I mean seriously… it’s the nicest car I have ever owned or driven! It has a rated tow of 19,600lbs.

      And I would sell it/get rid of it in a nanosecond if somesuckerbody offered me what I owe on it! Because it costs over $180 to fill this beast. Currently, I drive one mile to the office and it costs me over $200 a month in fuel… it’s eating me alive.

      But boy oh boy, she can rip a tree out of the ground! That’s for sure! :D

      I really enjoy character creation, but I basically make at character the way I want he/she to look/sound with the style of a character I like without being that specific character.

      Case in point, I really like fighting with Kilik, but he annoys me. So I made a random brute with a stick, named him Hamstar, then Jen had me make him Hellboy red with the deepest voice possible… it’s pretty funny! VERY RANDOM outfit! He has on a mask, I think a skirt, weird shoes, and a samurai belt with this ugly staff.

      I like the chick who has that weird hulahoop blade thing, but her voice makes me want to jab a pen in my brain. So I made a dude with the same sets. I spent like an hour and a half on him making him look all badass, and then the first time I get to fight with him… he’s gay!

      Seriously! If you outfit a dude with chick sets, he acts like the chick! I mean it’s terrible with the hulahoop one!

      I liked castle crashers, but I’d have to play it some more before I would say it’s worth $15

      Hey, whatever floats your boat. There is some good literature included in that little list, and in those general genres. And at least you need some kind of meat to it. You could be stuck as the kind of person reading cheap checkstand novels and romance flicks. :P

      And yes... Pad Thai is -amazing- food, and sometimes I'll even stand it with the peanuts in, but for some reason the consistency of the delicious spicy noodles just twangs when you crunch on the peanut bits. @.@

    • Osaka

      Yea. My big thing is peanuts in Pad Thai, which I know is supposed to be there technically, but for some reason it wigs me out to bite into a nut in what is essentially pasta. O.o

      I'll have to check it out! I may pick it up Friday.

      I'm working 90 hour weeks for the next couple of weeks, so I may not get much seat time. I want to play MGS4, but with the threat of a 90 min long cut scene looming, I dont want to risk missing story content in a quick "pick up and play for a few" session.

      If you can find a copy of the september 2005 issue of World War II magazine, they have a long article about it. A lot of people think the battle of suriago strait was the last "classic" naval sea battle, but this one is definitely more classic. firing cannons from sailing ships and boarding? thats classic! One of the captains of the american junk also became the second US marine in history to command an american ship at sea. The only other marine to do so was in the War of 1812.

      It was actually after the atomic bombs, on August 20, 1945. The americans in charge of the chinese guerillas had previously bought a pair of 40 ton junks and armed them as though still in combat (just for the "sport and excitement" of it, as one said), in order to keep the chinese guerillas with them until all there work was done. They added cahins and stone for armor, and had a couple machine guns and bazookas. (thats my way of having fun, i think i'd stay for that to!) They had a mission to sail up to shanghai to speed the recovery of American PoWs there.

      even though they were doing it for the hell of it, it turned out to be a good move. A larger junk captained by a japanese major was loaded with 79 japenese soldiers trying to make there way back to japan. It has a howitzer strapped to the junk, and a couple other heavy weapons attached to it. However, the ships was so crowded that it was unbearable. When the japanese major saw the pair of american ships, he figured he could capture them, and blame it on chinese pirates. Then he could put his men on those ships and lessen the burden.

      and so the japanese junk started firing on americans, and at first their heavy weapons gave them and advantage and were inflicting casualties, but one of the american sailors on the ship reached a .50 caliber machine gun they had previously salvaged off a wrecked american airplane, and it's armor piercing bullets destroyed the howitzer and helped them regain the upper hand. eventually, after scoring several bazooka hits, they convinced some of the japanes to surrender, and they were ordered to jump ship. even though the boarding american captain expected a japanese rush, it never came, and there were only a few left aboard when he boarded the japanese junk. they picked up the japanese who jumped, and went to shanghai.

      of course thats just a really abbreviated simplified story of what happened. I couldn't seem to find an interent site that mentions it.

      I don't know about most girls, haha. I guess it depends on what kind of girl you're going for. :P Some girls like the short-hair clean-cut look, but you can have long hair and still look clean depending on how you keep it. I dunno. I like it, but that might not be everyone.

      Guys with long hair often look effing sexy. Depends, of course. My ex had long hair, which I loved, but David's hair looks best short... although I keep trying to get him to grow it down to eyebrow-length at least, 'cause that's cute. <3 But I digress, lol.

      About the hair - yea, this was after a month of growing out. It would probably look longer if it wasn't for its tendency to curl over itself. :)

      Haha, you mean NaNo? That never finished going over... that was the period during which I was breaking up with my boyfriend of 3 years for long-standing reasons, and began edging into a new relationship with someone he knew well. Awkward period of time to be sure, and I am ashamed to say I just couldn't keep my head in my novel. But it shall be resurrected! :P
      Web design, interface design, that kind of thing; the bits that relate to streamlined aesthetic and ease of use. Conceptualization and fine tuning of the facade more than the internal workings (which are still very interesting, but I would like to keep them interesting by not burning myself out studying them).

      i have no idea. And what's with the two new planets? are we just gonna let them join our solar system? if the greeks and romans didn't see fit to name them after one of their crazy gods then why should we see them good enough to join our club.
