      Lawlin to NC!

      7 years ago

      That's right! I'm actually gonna leave my basement house and go to North Carolina! I'm going to see my cousin Adam, cuz I aint seen him since he went and joined the Marine Corps last year. It's gonna be awesome, except for the inevitable sunburns and sand in pants shenanigans. I'll be away for a week, starting today. Yay!

      Sorry it's so short, but at least I wrote something. I'm working on getting on the internets more often. It's just the transition from LIVE to computernet is kinda hard. Too much Halo Band....and drunk people...and rocketmen...
      xD

      Hurrah, the time of laziness is here!
      This is just a filler journal, since I'm too lazy to actually think!
      Anyway I'm back on LIVE, so you can probably find me there anytime.

      Way to go Microsoft!

      7 years ago

      And no, I don't mean let's throw parties of delight and congratulations. Rather, lets get together and flame them. Or overthrow them...or something equally non-conformist and violent...

      Anyway, I'm here just to let you guys know how much I hate those fuckers called Microsoft. At least, the fuckers who came up with the concept of a "pre" update. Aren't updates supposed to be one giant thing that fucks you over for about an hour and then makes up with you? Aren't they supposed to put you thru hell then make things better than ever before? Apparently the fellows at LIVE didn't get the memo. Nah, they decided to be rebels and release a 'pre' update. But instead of it fixing things, it fucks shit up! Take my 360 for example: 8 months ago it was working perfectly. It was a sexy beast! Then came a series of updates. They fixed things after making you suffer. Great! Then about a month ago a 'pre'-update came out. This thing didn't do a damn thing to my 360...at first. It was like a fucking time bomb, one that didn't go off till about an hour ago. So I'm playing GTA IV (if you aren't than there's something wrong with you) and suddenly my screen fucks up. I can't describe it well enough, but it's like all the pixels went to the gay side and turned pink. I couldn't see a damn thing. So I play for a little while, hoping it will get better. It doesn't. I restarted my 360 and BLAM! YOU HAVE JUST BEEN FUCKED BY MICROSOFT! Huzzah! What's odd is that it says this should only happen IMMEDIATELY after an update, not weeks or months after. I follow the instructions they give you and blah blah blah and it still fucks me over. Looks like Xbox Customer Support is gonna have another perfectly broken 360 to fix. At least my hard-drive is ok...I think.

      Sorry if this seem like a totally random 2 o'clock in the morning rant...cuz it is! Random angry rants are my specialty! My broken 360 is just another link in a chain of fucked up events in the last month! Life is awesome sometimes...</lies>

      P.S. I eventually got my rock band guitar replaced...but now I can't even use the new one!

      P.P.S If anyone even reads this anymore, feel free to say something.

      Problems...

      7 years ago

      Ok I've got some problems. No, I haven't lost my mind...yet.
      As everyone who plays LIVE probably already knows, LIVE recently underwent some updates and shit. Anyway, most people say they've got connectivity issues and the like. Not me baby: LIVE hates me the most. Yea I have the extreme connectivity crap (worsened by my dumb router) but theres more: Since the dashboard update, my 360 keeps freezing in the middle of everything. It's done it twice in halo 3 and a few times in some random games. And speaking of Halo 3, it froze when I wasn't even online!! And my screenshots, films, and maps are getting corrupted at an alarming rate. I've already had to delete several of my favorite pix 'cuz my 360 says they pose a threat or something. I've heard the 'dash update is fucking people over 'till they get the 3RLoD, but mine aint done that yet. My Elite is probably 8 months old or so and it's been thru a lot: my bro thought he'd get even and took his fist straight down on the side of it. Halo 3 made a nasty sound as it got scratched to hell. I got the CD fixed, but my 360 still makes really scary sounds when it starts. But it's always done that: I've heard most Elites are louder than trains.

      Now, if anyone takes concern over anything I've said, please give me some advice! I'd like to preserve my $500 investment!

      P.S. Please don't tell me to look on the LIVE support page: I've searched that fucker over and it aint no help. Bungie doesn't really have anything to help with corrupt files either other than "gee that sucks bitch!"

      P.P.S While I'm at it, look forward to a rant from me about how shitty they made the rock band stuff. My story includes lots o' frustration and some tough money decisions! Hooray!

      Yes, Prometheus is still alive.

      7 years ago

      Thats right! I'm alive, just not here...if that makes any sense to you, ya might wanna get checked out or something. Or not, your choice.

      Hmm, I just realized that's a really weird way to start the first journal in 3 months. And even that one was announcing that I was returning to the site. God I'm insane. So maybe I'm not a regular user anymore. That's probably mainly to the fact that my 360 owns my ass now. In the past 3 months, I've bought Burnout Paradise, Call of Duty 4, Army of Two, Mass Effect, and The Orange Box. Where, you might ask, have I been getting the money for these awesome titles? No, not my <secret> drug business...shit! Nah, it's actually coming from washing dishes! Yayyy!! Ok so it's not as exciting as drugs, but so what. In the past 3 months I've gotten 2 raises, up to $7.50 an hour. Not bad since all I do is scrub other people's filth off of plates and get really wet...eww.

      Until recently my hours sucked ass: maybe 12 to16 hours a week. But then our head disher dude god kidney stones [ouch] and has been out of commission for a few weeks. This created a massive gap in the schedule. Fortunately, I was there to fill it. I got landed with the hours for two reasons: I'm good at my job and don't bitch; and everyone else was too fucking lazy to pick 'em up. So I took on his hours by myself. I really should have looked at the schedule first: I went from working 3 days a week to working 5 or 6 days a week, 4 of them closes. I know I sound like I'm bitching by now, and I'm sorry. But I preferred the other hours because they fit nicely into my life's schedule. But now I find myself with only 2 days of free time, and no they aren't weekends. I get to work doubles [8-10 hour shifts!] on weekends! That totally fucks my homework situation. God I hope the dude gets better faster!

      In the aforementioned free time, I've been lawlin up CoD4. Awesome game! I've never really been one for ranking systems [hence my "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK NOOB!" response when people insult me with the classic "I'm a higher rank than you lolusuckcuzyouhavealifeandidont!"] but I must admit that I like the system of CoD4. Having a high rank doesn't mean you're gonna get into games where everyone else is a fuckload better than you [halo, I'm lookin right at you!] and just general assholes. It just indicates that you've played quite a bit and it unlocks stuff for you! And other than that it doesn't mean a fucking thing [halo, once again I hate your rank noobs] unless you're a prestige whore: then it just means that you haven't got a life in the first place. Lol.

      But wait, that's not where the gaming spree ends! Oh no, I've got more! Army of Two! Loved it. The story was a little cheezy I must say, but I really didn't care all that much. The game play is great, especially with two real people. I haven't tried online play yet mainly because I have a perpetual fear of new online games for some stupid ass reason. I was very afraid to get online with CoD4 and even Halo 3 was a bit hard, even tho I'd been playin Halo 2 for years online beforehand. Oh well.
      Mass Effect. Best RPG I've ever played. Of course, that's not much praise considering the last RPG I played was Super Mario RPG for the SNES [with a little Oblivion and others on the side]. Altho I might be wrong, cuz I don't know what the difference is between an FPS and an RPG other than the first person and the gun thing...hmm. As one friend of mine [who I've been horribly neglecting] would say, the game is "Massively Effective!". I must agree. I love it. So much in fact that I bought the first book on it. Unfortunately, I also ordered Halo: Contact Harvest at the same time. Take a guess as to which one I'm reading first. I've beaten the game twice and would have continued had I not got obsessed with CoD 4 and Army of Two etc...

      Ah gaming, what an awesome life!
      Anyway, since I haven't talked to any of you in quite awhile I'd like to get the lifelines back up. So if anyone wants to talk or play some games, hit me up on Xbox Live! My gamertag is clearly displayed on this page, but for the speshul people: xPrometheus21x. And if you'd like to MSN or AIM me or use some other horrible acronym on me, send me a message!

      P.S. I needz help for creating halo banners. Srsly.

      Would you look at that! I'm still alive!

      7 years ago

      And you all thought that I was dead. And nobody even bothered to write a touching eulogy. Oh well!
      I'm happy right now because I got ROCK BAND for christmas! Hellz yea. It was funny how I got it tho. There were like 5 boxes for me. One was a really long and uber thin one, and the rest were bulky. My sis's boyfriend, Russ, told me to open the skinny one first. So I did, and it turned out to be the box that Rock Band comes in. Then he goes "Yea, it's my room mates. We're too poor to buy you Rock Band, so we got you the box instead." I almost fell out of my chair laughing. The rest of the boxes turned out to be the guitar, the drums, some new Red vs. Blue shirts, and a new Caboose messenger bag. Oh and a Walmart Gift card! Hellz yea. So all in all, this year wasn't so bad. Now, if you'll excuse me, I do believe I've got a gig to get to. =P

      P.S: HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!

      ZOMG SNOW!!

      7 years ago

      Don't you just love it when a freak snowstorm hits you outta nowhere? No? Me neither...but it happened last night anyway. I was at mah friends house lawlin in Halo 3 campaign when I get a ring on my phone from mom. "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE FREAKING WEATHER'S LIKE RIGHT NOW?!" I say no because I'm in the basement and his room is under the deck and he had his shades drawn. So I go outside to discover that in the last half hour the weather has gone from mild cold to all out blizzard. We could barely see the house down the street. The house next door had a wicked slipstream/vortex thing going around its edge. So we had the great idea to open the door and see how bad it really is. Lets just say I nearly got knocked back onto my ass.
      Mom arrives half an hour after that. I walk along the somewhat sheltered path to the driveway. When I round the corner the wind hits me. For shits and giggles I pretend to be blown backward by the wind. Then I actually get pushed like a foot back. It was nuts. The drive home was wicked. Couldn't see shit.

      On a totally MASSive other note...
      MASS EFFECT RULES! I went to Walmart the other day and picked it up. I then proceeded to spend 4 hours playing it. It's wonderful. I spent 3 of those hours just exploring the Citadel, the main spaceport base thing. I did sidequests, got items, and just talked to people. There is so much to do other than the main quest line. I'm so amazed by the game that I cannot accurately describe it. Thats how good it is. =D

      Oh and about mah last journal: No mah 360 didn't die. It was all the rented games I was using at the time. They were really fucked up, so they froze the shit out of my 360. But its all better now...I hope. But I do have another technical fuck up to deal with. My nephew visited over the weekend and somehow installed a fake 'anti-spyware' program. Its actually just a big bundle of spyware in itself. At first it tells you that you're computer is infected with assloads of shit. Then it gave me a dialog bog saying that Norton Anti-virus is actually a virus and that it needed to be shut down. I was like "YOU'VE GOTTA BE FUCKING KIDING ME! WHO THE FUCK FALLS FOR THIS SHIT?!" Anyway, it proceeded to shutdown Norton and take over Internet Explorer, which is how it got in the comp in the first place. So I had to lock my internet, use my other anti-virus and spyware programs and disable the fucking thing. Right now I've gotten IE and Norton back and reduced the program to an annoying icon in my system tray that won't go away. Every few minutes its gives me a message saying something about how the comp is infected and I really should download this program to fix everything. Yea, right. Now I just gotta figure out how to stop the fucking thing from starting when the comp starts and how to get it out of my system tray because its really getting annoying...

      Aww fuck!

      7 years ago

      Ok so I'm not really a tech nerd and I haven't bothered to keep up to date on new Xbox 360 info. Anyway, my new 360 elite (its still less than 90 days old) has been freezing lately. It first did it when I was playing Half Life 2 on the Orange Box. Then it froze while my bro was playing Halo 3. Then it did again while I was playing Half Life 2 again. It's well ventilated (I have it sitting on a wire frame-like stand that has plenty of air flow) and I haven't had any problems with it till now. I have been playing alot more often lately and for longer periods since I have more free time.

      Does anyone know what's goin on, or can anyone give me some links to get help? Thanks in advance guys. I hope to god I don't get the 3 RLOD, 'cause it's a freaking hassle to deal with microsoft...

      Lol wut?

      7 years ago

      Did I say I was gonna update? Nahhh! Whats that you say, thinking that I've gone insane? I did say that? Well shit! How things have gotten outta control. Insane week it 'twas. It all started with a horrible month, really. Nothing was goin right. People were angry. Not at me, but just angry in general. And I, being a person who really gets concerned when friends are down, got all depressed too. Then my poor planning skillz shone when I got loads of homework. It never really got done. After this, I think I can find some refuge in Halo 3. Big mistake! Everybody is angry there for some reason! I get own'd 10 matches in a row. Just ask RocketJones and Nasa. They'll both tell ya "OMFG WE DID BETTER THAN PROMETHEUS! WE R T3H ROXzorz!" Speaking of which, Rocket is like the best person to talk to when you're bored...EVAR!! We got into all kinds of stuff I can't even remember. All I know is that now we're working on a short machinima series of our own...amazing!

      So anyway after a mixed month of bad and good, comes this week. It started out shitty, me being unprepared and tired after a weekend of hell at work. The usual yelling at by teachers didn't help either. So Tuesday morning mom says I really should start taking my meds again. I've been off them all summer, since they don't really help during that time anyway. So I did and I reminded her to take me to work that night to pick up my paycheck. The day goes by uneventful. Mom picks me up and I grab my paycheck. It says I've made roughly $150. I was like "That can't be right. I didn't work that much." Mom tells me to flip it over and look at my payrate. Turns out I now make $7 an hour instead of $6.50! AWESOME!! They never even told me I had gotten a raise! I said to my mom "Nothing can make me angry this week now!" And it was true. I got on XBL the night after and got all but 3 of my achivements for Halo 3. The night after, I get all but Steppin' Razor (which I still can't seem to get =[) At school my homework is actually getting done and my grades are goin up. And here I was goin emo thinking it could only get worse. How dumb.

      So theres my excuse for absence from here. Altho, you could easily find me on XBL or AIM. If you don't have my AIM, just ask me. Anyway.....what else is there to talk about. What have you guys been up to?
