Ok, so I FINALLY got a live account for my 360. My gamertag is Alpha Lamda (instead of The Greek Elite now) so if you feel inclined to add me do so.
However here's the golden rule: Tell me who you are (if you said your from rvb, that might be nice) and give me a good reason to add you. I don't just want nobody's on my friends list who I don't know who just want someone else to play with.
No, I'm talking about you important people who matter on here. If we've carried on a decent conversation or whatever, feel free to send me an invite, just remind me who you are (too many friends on rvb!)

Very bad ass, I must admit
The opening/intro with the two heroes was a great way to kick it off (understatement), and it especially made the Arbiter bad ass looking (as he should be)!
The gameplay, for the most part, was entertaining...although there were points in the game where it just felt like I was a void person playing a video game rather than being caught up in the epic of H3 (Bungie needs to look out for this, and they admitted so in H2 behind the scenes).
The make or break scene with Arbiter (i won't reveal anything by chance of anyone hasn't played that far or own the game) was beautiful with a very kick ass line...I loved it!
I was dissapointed with a certain result that is scene at the very end...but I won't admit anything.
That's all I can say...it's not much, I know, but I think words can't fully explain a lot of the good and not so great (but insignificant) aspects of the game.

This includes everyone who is interested...to whoever isn't, you can disregard this and continue on with your search of perversion on the internet (haha, i wonder how true that is).
So, I'm guessing most of you are all educated enough to know what MacBeth is (at least to recognize the name and put the face of the Burger King guy or Shakespear's face on it...sort of an inside joke, I apologize). Many may not have read this play by the legendary Old English playwriter, but I'm hoping everyone's heard of it.
It's a story of greed and ambition...and women's influence on men...and witchcraft...and Shakespear's stab at making a action movie (not bad, Will!). It's a variety of things, I guess you could say, but ultimately it's a guy named MacBeth who is predicted to acheive greatness, but this insight of greatness later on ends up cutting him down as he reaches (just about) absolute power. He kills a king, his best friend, a lot of people die (but that goes without saying for any Shakespear play).
Anywho, it's been desired to make a remake of a Shakespear play ever since Freshman year (Romeo and Juliet) but ever since Sophmore year, it's changed to MacBeth seeing as its climactic and more favorable to us.
With the new renovations me and my accomplice FltAdmBanks (PrivateDonut) have acheived, we'll finally be putting our Halo works/productions to the ultimate test. No longer using grainy, makeshift films...and this time using the ultimate quality of H3.
AlphaLambda and FltAdmBanks productions (previously "The Greek Elite" and Flt Adm Banks productions) will now begin its revisions of the old MacBeth script and prepare (as H3 comes closer and closer) to take a stab at their first, full fleged project. No longer 5 minute PSAs or comercials. This will be big, the entire MacBeth play turned into a modernized comedic take on from Shakespear's.
All I'll confirm for now is that it will use H3, it will have humor, it will have the general plotline and same amount of acts and scenes as the original MacBeth, and hopefully it will acheive greatness!
Stay tuned and ask questions if you want about this production...we're both quite proud of its growing idea.
PS: To anyone who is interested in seeing our previous work (by the old yet same The Greek Elite and FltAdmBanks productions) go onto youtube.com and search for the profile pyroviper, or at least search for pyrovipers in the video search. There you should find all of my productions (both seperate and tied in with FltAdmBanks).

Ok...so i should have posted this journal a VERY LONG time ago, but I just found time now and I believe I'm strong enough now to gather my thoughts. Through searching, visiting, and interacting on RvB.com, I've been seeing a lot of instances of a topic being fought on...that topic being...Religeon
I'll state it right now: I was raised a Greek Orthodox Christian and I'm glad I was raised this way. I'm a devout Christian and do my best to live my life in the name of God.
So here's the thing...I've been seeing a lot of 'fights' being brought up whenever someone so happens to post something religeous (in support of Christianity, Christ, God, etc) followed with some Atheists and Agnostics attacking it, OR, when some Atheists or Agnostics post something anti-religeon based and then Christians attack it.
I'm going to say this right now (and i'll leave caps lock on so that people don't jump the gun and pull the trigger before I can get my word out): IF YOU ARE ATHEIST OR AGNOSITC, YOU ARE NOT MY ENEMY! I HAVE NO PROBLEM IF YOUR BELIEFS ARE DIFFERENT FROM MINE!
With that being said I'd also like to say this (no need for caps): If you attack my Religeon, I will defend it and you become my enemy. Why? Because Faith is a sacred thing to me (and should be to any religeous person whether they be Hindu, Buhdist, whatever). The way I look at it, I live my life as spiritually as I can (though i'm far from perfect) and I always look to God, pray to Him, and worship Him. God, I believe, has helped my life in SOO many ways, therefore, if you shun/insult/denounce my belief in Him, then I will take offense.
So if your an atheist/agnostic not looking for a fight and simply saying "I believe in something different" fine. If you go out of your way to try and insult or offend me, then I will go out of my way to defend and promote what I believe in...and not promote in the way that one converts...promote as in bring truth to the subject.
Is this established?
Personally, I don't see the need in posting insulting pictures that put down my religeon or any religeon for that matter. Why do it? Your looking for a fight right? Isn't that the sole problem? Starting the fight? So whose at fault?
I mean, do ANY of you see me posting anti-Atheism or anti-Agnostic pictures? I could if you'd like me to...but I don't. Why? Because I believe that everyone is entitled to their OWN belief, and that that belief should be respected, and that its an unnessisary act of aggression and offense for no particular reason that will only end in a fight. Is that agreed on?
I mean, do we enjoy being pricks?
That's more directed to anyone who goes out of their way to denounce a religeon...might I bring up the name PlaguedMind for example? What gain comes from someone offending another's beliefs and starting a fight with intended-offensive pictures? The only reasoning I see is to start conflict...and we all know how fun war can be right?
This is also calling out people like ZatNikAtal who think they can post a negative picture, delete any comment that supports religeon out of pure arrogance (and cowardice to hear opposition), and play it off as "C'mon you wussies. Why de-mod this and not leave a comment?". I posted a comment, without de-modding the picture, and I ended up on his block listing because I said something he didn't appreciate.
Ingenious, right? More like Cowardice, I think....
So I guess that's my main problem...those out there who think they're clever, awesome, rebellious, whatever just because they're attempting to denounce Christianity or religeon. I've seen blind followers who simply comment saying, "YEAH! FUCK RELIGEON" without little reasoning why. Why not give reasoning to why you hate religeon?
Because it invokes war? Because of the extremists who promote it through fear? Because of the bad rep the Puritans and Crucaders gave it?
I'll give respect to anyone who politely (and with civility) gives their reasoning why they do not support God or religeon (it's their own belief whether I believe it's right or not), but not anyone who simply enjoys the "rep" of looking like a "rebel" or "bad ass" because they don't follow the "purity" and "goodness" of Religeon...those people make me sick, frankly.
I'll also state this: I'll admit, Religeon has invoked war. Look at Iraq and the Crucades. It's all a "Holy War" now isn't it? But let me remind you this: "who runs the war? Extremists." Extremists are more popular than the outspoken, peaceful believer (such as myself) because they do things that bring attention to themselves and to anyone in relation to them. Thus, we point fingers at the general audience. And I think countering this point even now is impossible being that America has become especially tense and skepticle of anyone who appears to be Muslim (just because of 9-11 and those terrorists who happen to have the same faith).
Same thing goes for those crazy promoters of "The True Word" who give their fire and brimstone preaches and say "You'll Go to Hell" this and "You'll go to Hell" that! Is that how Jesus preached? Is that how any Jew preaches (who happens to believe in the same God)? Do Muslims preach in a similar fasihon? No? So i there a mistake being made here? YES! I'll admit it! Some types of preaching and methods of spreading faith is incorrect! BLAME THEM! Not the innocent, calm, rational believers!
Perhaps this is too long and boring for many of you to read, but I needed to say this. I'm tired of the arrogant Atheists and Agnostics who speak and act with negative intent (you all know who you are). If you are not one of those Atheists/Agnostics who don't go out of your way to go start conflict, offend a relgeon, and that sort...then you've gained my Respect. Congrats. And to my brethren...don't give us a bad rep. Jesus promoted peace.
If you're going to mod...be curtious enought to leave a comment.
Debate if you will
12 years agoGreekElite
After a heated debate last night on the topics of sex, politics, and cereal...we came to a conclusion.
It is generally agreed that one cereal stands to top over every other brand and kind. That being Oreo O's. This combination of choclatey (and superior) Fruit Loops with the combined delicious marshmallows (a common ingredient to any great breakfast) has been claimed, by our debate group to be Quote Unquote: God's manifistation of Cereal.
Although we'd agreed that some of us love our Wheeties, and others are crazy for their Trix, there was no other Cereal that we could more so agree on that stands to be the most delicious and flawless. This being the Oreo O's.
After a short discussion...we contemplated the beggining of a cult for those who appreciated the deliciousness of such a great cereal..however it was seen as being foolish and unhealthy for the Christian mindset of the debate group and thus we decided on it would do the world better should we start a first peaceful regime of spreading World Piece to the world through the distribution of this amazing cereal. Thusly after, a new world order then shall begin with its acceptance, and to those who defy it, they will not be exterminated like the foolish mindset of the bloodthirsty Nazis...rather, re-education shall take place to ensure the proper appreciation for this ultimate breakfast.
And thus, I claim the beggining of a new party, group, regime, cult, whatever you would like to call it dedicated to the Oreo O's (again, not conflicting with any other views that we have...this just stands to dominate over the reign of breakfast and food in general).
If you agree that Oreo O's are amazing...please feel free to say so and support our cause. If not, that is your opinion (as incorrect as it may be...lol, jk)
PS: The cult thing is just a joke
