      Stuff with me

      2 years ago

      So I have a general direction I want this journal to go, but not sure where it will end. So here we go..

      2012 was by far one of the worst years of my life. It wasn't the worst year in the history of years so I still have some perspective that it could have been much much worse. I lost my best friends and several other really close friends to what I'm ultimately boiling down to a lack of proper communication.

      I wont get to in detail about what happened, but this is my take on it looking back. (There of course is their side of the story and you, sadly, wont get to hear it.) I never had a lot of self confidence, I felt normal when putting myself down or when others did it for me. I didn't realize it was that way till about 2008. Not sure what pointed it out. Anyway, fast forward to 2011. I'm living with my two best friends. One of which is finishing her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. She notices thins are a miss and asks questions. Eventually I took her advice and went into therapy. Boy did that suck, but it actually helped me quite a bit. I started to improve my self image and started trying different things. Now to the part where things start to dissolve with my friends. They didn't know the person I was becoming. I didn't either. They liked me when I was the other guy. I was the Best Man in their wedding. So it wasn't a casual like either. I stood up for myself when issues came up. My inexperience in expressing myself caused more harm than good in that relationship. I was used to backing down and admitting defeat at the first signs of trouble. So we explosively grew apart.

      But I have gained a lot of insight in the last year. So I guess there are some silver linings. Were they worth the costs? That has yet to be determined. Which brings me to the why I wanted to start writing tonight.

      People have been telling me my whole life that I have this amazing potential, and I have, until recently, always dismissed it as something people just say to someone. Now after all the events of the last few months. I'm actually starting to feel it in some ways. I feel like I can or will do something of substance in my life. Until now I have just sort of existed. I have worked as hard as I needed too, and honestly I have never really "tried" at anything. Its simple to say well "try" now, but at what? I don't really have any passions in my life. The friends I were speaking about above told me once to think of everything I'm passionate about and find out how those things are made and that will be a clue as to where to aim myself in life. She used Rooster Teeth as an example. Their work occupy a large part of my life. She suggested that I go work in a production capacity. She agreed that anywhere else besides Rooster Teeth wouldn't compare and I wouldn't be happy. Besides I don't really know anything about doing that type of work. My training has been in customer service. Schooling in Business and Marketing. So there are places to go. Lots and lots of places, but not really places I thought or really wanted to go.

      I just need to find an idea and go for it. No longer sit on my ass and do the minimum to get by. So Here's to 2013 and beyond. By this time next year I hope to have a direction at least.

      And maybe then she will love me.

      I want a simple solution for this nightmarish problem...

      2 years ago

      So I have been doing a lot of tech reading today about things that may or may not be at CES next week. Sadly I won't be attending this year due to budgeting/work schedules. Through my browsing I saw some speculations on the Next Generation game consoles and their integration with other devices. Which highlights a problem I have on a nightly basis.

      The Situation:

      The systems are designed now to be an all encompassing entertainment system. Music, Movies, Games, TV all in one box. And I love it. For the way I consume my media I would only need my Xbox and my surround sound. (At the moment I have an HTIB with a built in Blu-Ray, which if the next Xbox had that integrated I might finally get serious about thinking about maybe planning on starting to save for a respectable theater system.) I bought the LG HTIB and TV in hopes that Simplink wouldn't suck, and sadly it does. The audio never controls correct and there is 0 customization. I have my Harmony, but I don't have line of sight to my equipment from where I use it. I could go RF, but no. I'm tired of losing my TV remote in my bed sheets, or between the bed and the wall anyway. I want to use my phone or (ideally) the Xbox controller itself.

      The Improbable Solution:

      I want SmartGlass and a Harmony to have a baby that is powered by hopes, dreams, lithium ion batteries and WiFi. I don't want to use IR or RF for my equipment. Line of sight is for suckers and those IR blasters are a hassle. I love how my phone can control my Xbox via WiFi. Now if I could get it to also control my audio and video the same way I would be set. I don't lose my phone or my Xbox controllers, they are either to large or charging on my desk. The remotes however goes who knows where when I sleep. (Pretty sure I have mock light saber battles at night and use them as the hilts.) The controller won't be a viable mass market application, so the phone/tablet market is the way to go. I just want to sync my devices to SmartGlass and then be done with it. I have no need for a tablet now, but if this were a thing I would would. Currently I would go Android, but if there was a TV and a corresponding Receiver that were SmartGlass certified or some other thing I would go Surface..and maybe get a Windows Phone. Just to simplify my at home entertainment.

      So please CES 2013/Microsoft/Everyone else. Make this thing a thing and then

      Today

      Its work days like today that I wish I had one of Ben Heck's Xbox Laptops. Or even one of those cases giant ugly cases. I know that I wouldn't get the chance to use something like that very often, but damn it these long slow work days are no fun.

      I miss you Pandora.

      Ads

      2 years ago

      So there is a lot of press going around about the iPhone release which is to be expected. It's just the rivalry ads that Samsung puts out that I don't get. I mean on paper they make sense. "Let's make fun of the people who camp out days in advance for a competitor's product!"Who are these ads really targeted at? Would someone who is, or was planning on, camping in line for the phone going to see it and change their mind? Could anything at this point even sway someone away from the iPhone, especially if they are the ones to wait in line for it?

      The ad isn't new; they ran something identical when a previous iPhone was released (Galaxy S2 v iPhone 4s). But it just feels so much juvenile this time around. Maybe I just read too much into advertising (I do, there is no maybe). To me this ad has nothing to do with the iPhone and everything to do with the customers. Samsung is saying two things to me through these ads:

      1. The people who are depicted in these commercials are really stupid consumers (or old people).
      2. AND WE HATE THAT WE DON'T HAVE THEM.

      I would think that Samsung would do anything to have the level of fanaticism about any of their products that Apple users have for literally everything Apple makes. Maybe Samsung is the nerd who is picked on in high school by the popular kids. They publicly hate them, but secretly long to be them.
      I get attacking the hardware. The print ads comparing the Galaxy III to the iPhone 5 made sense to me. But to go after the customer isn't going to do much more than alienate potential customers. Eventually the news will get out that Apple harvested the soul from a Chinese baby girl for each of their products and when that happens, literately dozens of Apple users with change their Apple ways. And chances are they won't go running to Samsung. Not after getting called stupid on a public stage. Unless of course Samsung is right, and they are stupid, and in that case they won't get the ads.

      So in summary, I'm not old or stupid. So I would totally get the Galaxy S III over the iPhone. Huh...guess Advertising does work..

      Borderlands 2

      2 years ago

      I'm really excited about this game. To the point where I'm writing a journal about it. I feel like every year there are less and less games that I really look forward too. I know I'm missing out on a few amazing franchises that I have yet to pay (Assassins Creed, Bioshock, Fallout ect..). But I never got into them, and starting now would just be a huge investment of time that I don't have.

      That being said, if anyone wants to play Borderlands with me I'm FullaHolesLV on xBox live. I will be playing as Zero to start. Probably just like everyone else.

      Well its been 4 months, better update this for my 10's of friends who read them.

      So even though I had budgeted for RTX and paid for a large portion of the trip upfront, I cancelled it. Cooler heads prevailed and the money is better spend on moving fees. All the hoopla with my current roommates is thankfully at an end. Sad things turned out the way they did, but at this point there is nothing that can be done other than to move forward and hope we can salvage something in the future. Regardless of all that stuff our lease is up and we were going to be parting ways any how.

      I think I found a place to live, but I should hopefully have an answer tomorrow. Its smaller than I wanted, but with my budget I'm probably not going to find much bigger. Just hope Apocalypse doesn't mind the smaller space.

      I need to sell my plane tickets....

      in Forums > I need to sell my plane tickets.... | Follow this topic

      So do to financial issues, I have had to cancel my trip to RTX this year. When I booked my flight I bought a nonrefundable ticket. I talked to Jet Blue and I can get it as a credit for another flight. And its transferable. So this is where you guys come in....If anyone hasn't picked up their flight tickets yet and want to go on Jet Blue...maybe you want these. They are values at about $300.

      If anyone is interested we can work something out payment wise. Probably paypal or carrier pigeon.

      Austin Transportation Options

      in Forums > Austin Transportation Options | Follow this topic

      Here are some options for those traveling from Austin-Bergstrom to the Convention Center area.

      100 Airport Flyer line. $2 each way.

      Looks like a 7 day pass is $9. Not to shabby if you're planning on going to SideQuest Events.

      Super Shuttle is $13 per person each way.

      Yellow Cab is $21 each way. I assume other companies will be comparable in price.


      I think I'm going to get one of those Bus Passes.

      JetBlue from Long Beach

      in Forums > JetBlue from Long Beach | Follow this topic

      I have been shopping the last couple days and so far the cheapest I have found is JetBlue out of Long Beach $165 each way. After fees and what not I'm at $345 round trip. Its a direct flight and that's pretty awesome.

      Last year I went through South West out of Burbank and it was about $360 with a stop in Phoenix. Turned into an over night trip due to tornado in the Midwest. Long story short I had to ride bitch on the back of a motorcycle because of it. So the moral of the story is. Southwest+ Tornado=emasculating.

    Been a RVB fan since Season 1. Met a girl, fell in love, forgot about the internet. Then I realized that the internet was my only true love and came back. No idea what my old log in was from way back in the yesteryears. Oh well.

      Heyo! Meant to do this a coulple of days ago, but I seemed to have fully murdered my computer through the careful application of carelessness and porn. It was really great meeting you and getting to hang out for much of the weekend. It was obviously awesome meeting the RT people and chatting with them, but making new friends is right up there with that experience!
