      Okay well finished the Whidbey Island Marathon and unlike last year I actually made it to the full event not the half event. Not bad for my first Marathon all I wanted to do is finish it which shouldn't be too hard since I had 6 whole hours to compleet it. Time was 4 Hours, 34 Mins. Not Fast enoug to qualify for the Boston in my division. Placed 149th overall with most of them being women and older men. In my division which is Males 25 to 29 I placed 18 out of 24. Nothing special considering the top 5 all came from that group at 2 and a half hours. Guess I am a slow poke comming in 2 hours behind them.

    • A little tax time humor.

      A man, called to testify at the IRS, asked his accountant for advice on what to wear. "Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper." Then he asked his lawyer the same question, but got the opposite advice. "Do not let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie.


      Confused, the man went to his Pastor, told him of the conflicting advice, and requested some resolution of the dilemma. "Let me tell you a story," replied the Pastor. "A woman, about to be married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night. 'Wear a heavy, long, flannel nightgown that goes right up to your neck.' But when she asked her best friend, she got conflicting advice: 'Wear your most sexy negligee, with a V neck right down to your navel.


      The man protested, "What does all this have to do with my problem with the IRS?"

      "No matter what you wear, you are going to get screwed."

    • Finished with HAL0 3 matchmaking.

      Well wanted to get the highest Enlisted Rank because I don't care for ranked matches, so finished up some double XP zombie weekend matches to pick up the required XP just in time before HAL0 Reach comes out, and here is what I picked up (even though everyone here already knows what al the grade 4 ranks are)
      GunnerySergeant_G4.png
      HAL0 3 Master Seargent, too bad in the gamer card and on the service record they just call it HAL0 3 Gunnery Seargetn Grade 4. Oh well, did something I wanted to do for a while, guess I had to make the most of a weekend that I am sick on.

    • Good News and Bad News.

      First the Bad.

      Microsoft has announced that coming in April XBOX live support for Original XBOX Games such as HAL0 2 will come to an end.
      RedTeamMultiplayer.jpgYou know what that means, no more HAL0 2 Online Multiplayer. You can still play HAL0 2 on LAN just like the first HAL0.224772-halo2vista_super.jpg .
      The reason for this move was to help the current HAL0s to grow, so apparently this means better support and more content for HAL0 3, ODST and Reach. I hope this means more maps from HAL0 2 will make it to HAL0 3 and/or reach. We'll find out. So if you want some nostalgic XB0X live multiplayer experience, better jump on now to relive battles from memories past. halo2mp-03.jpg

      Now for some good news. Had to replace my vacume cleaner since Christmas. So I got one of those I-Robot Roomba Vaccume cleanersroomba530.jpg Got a cheaper model with a docking station to self charge but none of the cool stuff such as a remote or timer. However then again I can't be too lazy. After all the only thing I have to do is press a button the ncan go to work or sleep and it will do the rest. It was cool.

      Anyways St. Patricks Day is this Wednesday so I'll probibly make a trip to Seattle in the middle of the week. Might take some pics and mabey even post them.

      Not from the party. This was actually last Marine Ball in 2008. Didn't get my scanner up so I took a picture of the photo instead.

      A 6 course meal inluding items such as caviar, truffles, and the finest fillet you can taste or fit on a plate. When I saw the steak I thought it was something out of the Flintstones, Yabba Dabba Doo

      A picture driving home from work before my Holiday/Christmas leave. Got a nice forest twilight sceene with the moon above the mountian and evergreen trees on a clear sky. Was also listening to Highlanders Christmas durring this photo. Well a good time refelcting on this last Holiday Season and Year now that it is all over. Good luck with the Next Year. Hopefully last years troubles wont carry over, and if they do atleast you learned how to deal with them so they aint so bad.

      With all my Imperial Guard models now compleetly painted and based. (okay not compleetly, still a little patchy and chiped, but all the infantry models finnaly done I have taken pictures (I need to get a better camera besides my cellphone) and posted them (a few with some MS pain effects although photoshop is the way to go.) for your viewing pleasure. They are all on the 2nd page with the exception of the Voystrian First Born Platoon which I took and posted earlier.

    • HAL0 Legends Critique: The Package.

      9 years ago

      Marinealver

      Well just doing a spoiler free review but as you know HAL0 Legends is a Japanise anime/3d animation colection of short stories about the HAL0 univers (well all but 1). Think of it as similiar to the Animatrix as it was for the matrix genre.

      Well for 3d animation it is fairly impressive and better on HD TV. Particle effects are shiney and don't see too much polygon meshing (if there is any at all). Story is quick and somewhat entertaining. Minor plot twists as you find out what the Spartians are there for.
      halo-legends-trailer-396x300.png
      Cannon could use a little work though. At least you will never see the Master Chief's face. When his helmet is off the camera dose move away from his head so the faceless hero will continue to be just that. However when fighting the covenant I swear they mus be doing it on Easy dificulty. They were able to mow through them with Assault Rifles and SMGs like it was easy and there really wasn't much of a stand up fight or duel with the elites. Also when ever did the covenant bleed green? As for quotes and one liners you all heared them in the game or even read them in some of the books but those saying them are not the ones who said them in the movie. Not to mention besides the master chief the other charachters don't fit the discription in the books as much.

      All in all a decient video for fans. Nothing special as a stand alone if you are not much of a HAL0 fan. If you are well like HAL0 legends the value is in the sum of all its parts which is the rest of the videos, not just one of them.
