    • iTunes is funny.

      You know how you'll be listening to something on iTunes, and it'll show you other songs and stuff by the artist?

      Well, I'm listening to Tool, and Tool isn't available on iTunes. Meaning that it has to approximate. So it assumed I was listening to Lug Tool, who is apparantly a reggae artist. Then it goes, well, here's some more reggae. Bob Marley! And then it goes, well, people who bought Bob Marley also bought Nickelback and All American Rejects and stuff. So somehow Tool gets lumped in with that crap.

      I am such a total nerd.

    • Freaking hate.

      12 years ago


      There's this Andy kid at my school. Andy is the single focus point of what I hate about myself and society in general.

      Everything about this guy screams "FUCKING DOUCHE". He's in the nerd crowd, and he knows games and stuff more than the average individual. That's what I hate about him.

      I kind of feel like he's encroaching onto my territory. I'm the know-it-all, dammit. I take pride in the fact that when I shout "ZERG RUSH LOL" no one has any idea what's going on. I wear my nerdiness like a badge of pride.

      Meanwhile, he finds the guy who makes even the slightest reference to games or something and latches on like a leech, like he suddenly scores cool points with them.

      In short, nerdiness is the end to which I aspire, and almost everything I do pushes me further towards that goal. Sure, some would say I've already attained it. I suppose I have. But part of it is keeping up with the movement and part of it is progressing further still into nerd territory. I don't want to be the nerd in a crowd of nerds, I want to be their king. Andy, on the other hand, sees it as a means to an end. It's a tool of which he can make use to move forward. His facade changes based on the situation.

      I don't see him much anymore, much to the relief of my nerves. But I had a run-in with him earlier this week.

      I like paragraph breaks.

      I walk in the library to find Andy and Andrew (not to be confused with Andy; Andrew is a cool guy and a good friend of mine) playing chess. I spectate. Someone sitting nearby jokingly sets their iPod headphones on the edge of the board "to provide theme music". I've got my Pre-Suck Metallica CD with me, so I play along with the joke and volunteer to add to the music pool. My friend John who's standing next to me asks if I have any DragonForce on me, because it makes good fight music. Andy pops in with, "Sure! Let's get some DragonForce in here!"

      My soul died a little when he said that.

      This kid, last year, complained when he didn't hear Feel Good, Inc. every waking moment. Just saying that he's the epitome of popular conformity. And he's talking about one of my favorite bands with such reckless abandon?

      I know he's only seen the TTFAF video and went "Wow guitar solo". So let's compare that with me, who

      -Owns every album
      -Knows that their name used to be DragonHeart
      -Can name the profiles of most of the band members

      Yeah, don't talk to me like you know shit about me or the bands I like.

      I've been thinking about buying something of theirs for a while, so I bought Blood Mountain tonight and I'm really enjoying it. Definately awesome.

      Look at me, I'm turning into a real metal-head.

      I'm back, baby.

      Updates on my guitar: I still completely suck, but I suck in a way that exudes competence. I can almost do Purple Haze!

      Music and stuff: New artists I like: Buckethead, ThirtyWun, some more Primus, some more DragonForce, Black Label Soceity.

      Games: Can't wait for Guitar Hero 2! And Zelda and the Wii. And PSU.

      Um...other stuff: I got a date tomorrow to go see Nightmare Before Christmas. Do I win the internet now?

      I'm pretty much out of the forums forever now. Between the idiocy of the fanbase and the forum just straight-up not working, it's not something I want to wade though anymore. I'll still hit RT for new videos and to post a journal or such occasionally.

    • Well well well, you just can't tell.

      Well, well, well, my Michell.

      I love that song.

      My birthday was Monday. I'm 16 now. Yay.

      I borrowed Appetite for Destruction from a friend. GNR officially kicks ass.

      Primus ain't bad either.

      I got Xbox Live fixed. Yay! I can revel in its warmph again.

      I applied for a job somewhere. It's at this place called Vintage Stock; they have a whole lot of used game and comics stuff there. It's not busy that often and it's better than fast food. Hope I get the job.

      Next week is my birthday. Feel free to give me stuff. Like that new PSP Valkyrie Profile game. Or money.

      I just realized that I absolutely love songs with lyrics about medieval battle and stuff. I came to Dragonforce for the guitars, but stayed for the lyrics about bitchin' battles and dragons and whatnot. And I'm listening to Stairway to Heaven, and I just realized that Led Zeppelin did the same thing with a bunch of their songs.

      Yesterday I decided that a D&D campaign based on Dragonforce lyrics would be rad. I mean, I can get an overview just from the album titles. In the Valley of the Damned, someone is summoning a Sonic Firestorm to go on an Inhuman Rampage, and the protagonists have to stop it. Now doesn't that sound like fun?

      Also, don't go to Missouri. EVER. Even if I think I saw Beck there.
