      I just wanted to say thanks to everybody that joined us again for RvBTO. It was great being able to host you all again, and you're all sorely missed. Please visit again sometime.

    • WHY?!?!

      Why do some men think that running their hands under water for 5 seconds counts as washing them after using the bathroom?! Seriously!

      Xbox 360: $349
      Rock Band: $179
      Becoming a better drummer with Tape: Priceless

      If you're like me and really enjoy the drums in Rock Band then you may also have noticed that the red rum pad SUCKS. Depending on which of the 2 models of drum kit you got, you have different problems with it recognizing hits.This makes certain songs all but impossible to complete on expert.

      I've seen this mod on Youtube many times and haven't had a chance to try it properly, as I've had was a roll of scotch tape, the kind you wrap gifts with. So today I took a roll of painters tape from work and taped down my red pad......HUGE different in sensitivity. It now recognizes even the smallest hits perfectly. Drum rolls aren't a problem anymore. I had to get used to it being so sensitive all over again but it's made a huge difference. I've gone from failing out on Train Kept A Rollin' on expert to getting 93% on my first try. Trust me, tape down the red pad. I'll most likely end up picking up the new drum set with the launch of Rock Band 2 just because it's supposed to be more stable and durable.

      Rock On!

      I went to an awesome convention called Polaris (aka TorontoTrek). While I felt that there was as much going on this year as there was last year, I still had a lot of fun. Turns out I've hung out with the artist of one of my favorite comics for the past 2 years and didn't even realize. Lar DeSouza who draws for Looking for Group. He is awesome to say the least and even gave me an advanced copy of issue #4. The only real down side to the weekend was the 6am fire alarm on sunday morning after being up at the dance till 2am. I managed to sleep through the 2 other alarms that shortly followed at least. All in all a very good weekend. I look forward to next year.

      Wall-e was such an awesome movie. For 2 characters with little to no dialogue, they were so expressive. Everybody must see this movie. Now to wait for the Star Wars Clone Wars movie next month.

      It has been a long time since I've been a member of this community. Truth be told that after this years RvBTO I finally got tired of introducing myself to people and following it up with "i'm not on the site anymore." Usually once the event was over, this would be the last that I would hear of these people again for a whole year. No longer. I will not lose touch with so many amazing people again.

      I'm so happy that everyone had a good time at this years event. It wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of Jamie, Lukie, and Audrey. So many thanks to you all, and to everyone who helped us out at the event. I damn well better see everyone again next year!

      He made a point of showing this to me and now I want it. So you're all welcome to buy it for me out of the kindness of your hearts haha. The reason why I looked at this one is because it's $20 cheaper than buying it in stores. Damn you Scott.

    • The Job

      12 years ago

      Mauller

      Ok, it's been over a month since I've done any kind of update so I figure I'm due. The job that I've gotten roughly a month ago is working out ok I guess. The company is quite chaotic and disorganized. I would never have guessed it from such a large international company like Hugo Boss. Some days are ok. Other days just make me not like this place at all.

      This company bends over backwards to make another company called Harry Rosen's happy as they provide about 40% of our sales alone. What this translates into is you have to drop whatever it is that you're doing and focus entirely on what they want from you. The problem with this is that there's very poor organization here. Rosen's will ask you for things that they already have or have been shipped from us, but since our proceedures don't work well, we don't know that it's been shipped unless I try to track it down through about 6 different people. And that's only if I suspect that it's already been asked for. If not, I go through the work of getting the goods to them that they want and they end up with double the shipment sometimes. Or people at Rosens are not communicating with eachother and one buyer is asking for something to be sent, and it shows up, and another buyer starts asking, wtf did you guys send me this for, and then we have to go back through emails and about 20 different releases to find out who orginally asked us to send it.

      I don't know. This company just isn't what I expected. I've had very little in the way of training, there are no manuals for me to look to in regards to the software that we use. And what I do get taught, Isn't explained very well and I'm never told exactly what it is all these numbers represent, when I do ask, they're usually very vague. It's only been a month so I guess I'll have to see if things get better.

      I got a job working for Hugo Boss. It's not too far from where I live, it has full benefits, I'm starting at 31k a year. I get discounts on Hugo Boss clothing. The position is Order Entry and Administration. It's more data entry style work as the orders are already taken, i'm simply overseeing their processing into the system, keeping clients up to date on where their orders are, and generating spreadsheets. YAY.

      Sadly, i think the era of lightning bolt is already at an end. It hasn't been avalible on Amazon for quite some time now, but i still have a full case of cherry charger in my makeshift wine cellar.
      There aren't any 7-elevens close enough to further investigate if the stuff is no more. Who knows, they could still be on the shelf if they sell as poorly as i think they did.
      At one nearby station, they still had pepsi blue for nearly an entire year after it wasn't produced anymore. i think i was the only one buying it.

      cheapest seats are in "the Woods" sections.. at about $20 a piece.. but I am not sure we can all fit there and they are way off in the wings with limited visability (hence the lower cost)

      i think you guys should start a 'bring amber back to canada' fund, and go around the streets of toronto asking for donations.
      and because it's in canadian dollars, it'd get me there like 20% faster than if i were to do it in australian dollars!!
      apparently mel wants me back there in time for the panic channel gig in january, sadly that's not going to happen...plus it's like winter there. and that'll be all snowing and COLD! but we'll see.

      Of course i already got Chloe with it. She's threatening to get a picture from Jamie where the both of them are each holding up one side of my mouth to make a smiling effect. The picture didn't get posted with the other ones that Jamie had from that morning so hopefully it vanished into the abyss of the camera, never to be seen again.
