    • And I thought that last Journal entry was overdue

      5 years ago

      Rek

      So I was surprised to come back after 2 years. Now it's been a further 6 since I last posted. I'm taking some time to clean this profile up a little, removing old pictures and interests (honestly, who puts "drinking" as an interest).

      It's interesting to look back 6 & 8 years ago and see how much of my life has changed,and how other areas have remained the same. I guess the biggest differences is that I'm now married and have a child on the way.

      I see I've got 78 friends here, but I only really remember a handful. It was fun to read the old comments on the photos before I deleted them. I guess I should reread these old journal entries and see if there's anything more embarrassing then decade old spelling mistakes that I've already noticed.

    • wow that was a long time ago

      hmmm its been a really looong time since i logged in here. coming up on 2 years since my last blog. I guess the quite notable thing about this is that in my last update I said Serenity was a great date movie, well the girl whom I first saw the movie with is living with me and obviously we've been together a long time.

      So Halo 3's out, wooo, beaten Heroic so far, i think its time to step up to Legendary Co-Op. Still collecting the skulls too.

      Anyway, im not sure how many of my old friends on here would still have me on their watchlist, 2 years is a really long time. But I thought i'ld update incase some of you thought I was dead or something.

      Oh and isn't Halo 3 kinda empty without it being the setting of another season of Red Vs Blue? Esp now they could all have different armor. Sure the bloodgutch chronicles is over, but lets see some new stories.

    • Serenity

      Rek

      I'm a bit late posting this, given that I've already seen the movie twice. But go see Serenity! It's the best sci-fi movie in a loooong time...beating out all the star war prequals (and to some people, even the originals) but its bombing in the box office. That's just not justice.

      It's a shame that sci-fi lovers are also likely to have access to the pirated version of the movie, but please put some money towoards this one.

      It's also a great date movie, the humour works really well. Infact I think the majority of the Firefly/Serenity fanbase is female.

    • Season 4

      Rek

      Wow Season 4 starting in less then a month, the time has flown by. I guess with the DVD being released in between it really helps bridge the gap.

      I've recently went through all three seasons with a new friend, and she was very impressed. And after seeing everything again, my fav overall quote has to be...

      "That was you! I thought the tooth fairy was mad at me :("

    • Rekkie Ordered

      Rek

      Well I've ordered myself the Season 3 DVD and the rooster teeth Beanie. Can't wait for it to arrive. Once it arrives i'll really have cockbite on my forhead.....how cool.

      Well I'm just about to watch the latest Naruto ep (142), but I have now read up to 266 in the manga which I wasn't previously reading. I can't wait for the anime to get over these fillers because the upcoming story kicks ass.

    • Last day as a teen

      14 years ago

      Rek

      Today is my last day as a teenager. A scary throught.

      20 is an odd year though, your not really an adult (not globally) anyway, but your not a teenager either. It's just kind of an inbetween year.

      I already have my big present, a X800XT, which is very nice :)

      Well I brought some new DVDs the other day, might aswell share.

      Batman: The Movie (1966)
      Garden State
      Office Space
      Blade Trinity
      Team America World Police

      I havn't actually seen Team America yet, that's the plan for this afternoon.

    • Rekkie Begins

      14 years ago

      Rek

      Well I don't really begin here, I've been here for 8 months now. Or perhaps I might, maybe this journal is my origin tale. Maybe you should forget all my previous journal entries and this one will be a retelling.

      Well that would be cool and all but frankly it sounds like a lot of work and I'ld rather just talk about Batman. I'll keep this spoiler free.

      Batman Begins is a really good movie. It's not the best movie ever, but certainly one of the best comic-to-film movies. They took the series in the right perfect direction, my only problems where some pacing issues at the start of the film.

      They've made some changes to the comics, but they havn't butchered anything. The previous films we're plagued by setting up and killing villains too quickly. Thankfully this movie is all about setting up Batman, all the villians are already in the city...we don't need their origins....just their character and depth.

      The batsuit looks great, and is much more practical then any of the previous suits. The batmobile is quite contraversal in design, but is without a doubt much more realistic and practical.

      Two things I quite liked we're the use of fear, and the set up for future movies. Many of the scenes in this movie played out like a horror movie, only the big scary monster was batman, it was fantastic. The ending, and no I won't say what it is, gives us a bit of a tease as to whats in store for the future. It doesn't leave us on a cliffhanger, which I'm very thankful for, but gives us just want we need to demand the sequal be made.

      I've kept this spoiler free, but I can't gurantee the same for the comments. But if you are posting spoilers please mark them, not every may have seen the movie yet.

      6 Mod Points Remaining....that's kinda sad.

      And wahoo, two posts within 24 hours. Havn't done that in a while.

      I'm trying to do a study on the health benefits of Dance Dance Revolution as part of my indepentant study this trimester but it is very hard to find a copy of the game. All the EBs are sold out, and Ebay only has American versions of the game (that won't work on my consoles). Any PAL gamers got any ideas? I am mainly looking for DDR MAX2.

      I don't actually activly play the games, although if they actually prove to be benefical to health, and are as addicting as the guys in the arcade next to QANTM make it out to be, then I may join the cause.

    • Miss Me?

      Rek

      Been a long time since I've updated this thing but I took some new photos tonight so thought i'ld throw em up there.

      Sorry about the lack of entries...and about ignoring all yours...it's not that I don't love you guys (& gals, okay, mostly the gals)....

      My watch list is actually kinda insane now...Lixie actually broke the "200 Journal Entries" mark, I assume thats as high as it will allow it to go.

      Well I like the new features of the site, and everything is looking pretty shinny.

      Now if you'ld be so kind to message me back with showerings of love that would be super. I have missed ya, so give me a summary of your last....50-200 important things that have happened in your life since we last talked.

      Oh and Batman Begins comes out this week, really looking forward to that one.

      I just thought this deserved its own post.

      I've played The Legend of Zelda: Twilight princess
      At e3, and got a free t-shirt with the games logo

      Who wants to touch me?

      EDIT:
      I study at QANTM. Bachelor of interactive entertianment. That puts me as a member of the industry.

      Thats awesome how you're studying Game Design, what's it like?
      I'm in Perth and the only place we can really do that is at SAE, but that place scares me.
      Anyways. What programs do you use? And how long does the course go for? And are you promised jobs at the end of it?
      Anyhoos, VG Cats rocks. RAH.

      I was a manager for Rek while he was starting his movie career. I would follow him around and he would keep saying hilarious things like "what the fuck are doing?" and "Get out of my office." It turns out he was my boss and he just fired me. I will never understand that Hollywood ego, but all i know it makes you turn against you friends and managers.
