      Bowling! Everyone loves bowling, but ask yourself honestly, when was the last time you went? Last week? If thats your answer then your a liar cause I was there and I didn't see you.

      Things I love about my job #35 - "I go bowling with the clients every 2nd Tuesday"

      Gotta love a job where the managment think your awesome for taking the clients bowling, the truth is I love them for letting me take them bowling. None of my other jobs did that. Bastards.

      What The Fuck Has This guy Been Up To?
      Anyways, time for this weeks game of "What the fuck has this guy been up to?", formely Catch Up, but I didn't think it was catchy enough (Ironic no?)

      iGo-With-The-Crowd
      I just got an iPhone, and to everyone who doesn't have one, it is tits! Its the next logical step in phone technology. Music and phone, done before. Intertubes and phone, done before. Intertubes, music, photos, camera, all of the apps and a bunch of other cool hings that will blow your mind, done before. But the thing that makes the iPhone great, has all those things and PEGGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Rockin' On The Rocks
      My favorite radio station FBi 94.5, the Sydney local, is going broke. As such they launched several campaigns to save them from their economic worries, the first of which was Ask Richard, in which they got their listeners to grab Richard Bransons attention by any means possible and get him to donate $1,000,000 and whoever gets him to give will get $50,000 of it.
      The next is the one I am participating in. FBi has help set up some huge bands, several include The Vines, Midnight Juggernauts, MUSCLES, The Paper Scissors and the list goes on. All of these bands have grouped together and are donating thier time and talents for free so FBi can host a huge amount of concerts during June. The Save FBi gigs are playing everywhere in Sydney, with all the money from the tickets going straight to FBi, and ending with a HUGE concert on the 27th.
      That is the one I'll be getting as many people as I can to go. The line up stands as thus:
      -Midnight Juggernauts
      -MUSCLES
      -Dappled Cities
      -Bluejuice
      -Decoder Ring
      -Grafton Primary
      -AIH DJs
      -Pivot DJs
      -Cassette Kids
      -The Jezabels
      -Palace Of Fire
      -Catcall
      -Ernest Ellis
      -P.A.S.H
      -HOOPS
      -Dangerous Dan
      -Jack Shit
      -Kato
      -Purple Sneakers
      -Ro Sham Bo
      -Wax Motif
      and more special guests to be announced
      Two words: Fuck. Yeah.
      10 Billion fake dollars to anyone who knows any of these bands.

      Twelve At Night And All Is Well
      Going back and forth from the computer doesn't really help with writing. It was 7pm when I started writing this and it right on 12am and I have forgotten all the other awesome things I was going to write about. Anyways, I'm tired and I got to get up at 6am tomorrow, so I'm hittiong the sack.

      Good Night, And Good Luck.

      Holy balls! Its amazing where a mixture of boredom at work and blocked sites will lead. Funny it should end up back here, where some big changes in my life started (is it interesting or sad that it happened on ta website?)

      I look back on all my old journals, and am amazed at the man I have become, you should all try it, its like a time warp, blogger style.

      Right now I'm waiting on an answer that could either be bad, great or changes nothing. And in all honesty, I'd rather go for great or bad, cause something needs to change to move forward, whether that be the end of something or the revival, I can atleast say "thats how it ended" or "this is whats happening" rather then "yeah, dunno".

      Its funny, I love this site, with its funny, quirky style, but I've dropped it like a bad hat, and yet, ironically enough, come crawling back when there has been, or is going to be a change. I guess people do retreat back to the familiar, what we grew up on.

      But enough about cryptic lines to events that mean nothing except to the people that are involved, why dont we play the more entertaining game of catch up?

      My Past, In So Many Paragraphs
      No let me think, the last time I wrote, I had just be fired from JB HiFi or "let go" as they put it... fuckers.
      Well, things sure have developed from there, I'm no good with dates so I'm not going to tell you when these things happened, just the *general order in which they happened.
      *they way I think they happened

      Spare change man?
      For about 3 months, I stayed unemployed, this was mainly because the evil recession hit Australia about this time. And if you want to know, No, being unemployed, broke and indebt isn't much fun, not much fun at all.

      Eat Fresh Bitches!
      My mate Wallace *insert picture here* came down like an Angel of Money Mercy and got me a job with him. And what job broke your unemployment streak you ask? Subway. Yes Subway. And if you want to know, it taste great, but dont ever eat from Parramatta, the place is more like Sub 'Where-Food-Goes-To-Die' Way.

      Wait, Why Did I Want This Job?
      Ofcourse, everything lessens after the shine wears off, and going in, I knew I was going to hate this job, so you know what happened after the shine wore off? Thats right! I hated the job. Even though a job like this is supposed to be a first job kind of position, the manager ran it like Hell's fucking Kitchen.
      But, I must say, the feature I admire the most about myself (yeah I admire myself, get some self confidence!) is my ability to not give a shit about a job, but still pull through for my work mates, and anyone who has worked with me can attest to this, I do enough of my work so that it doesn't pile onto them, I help them out when I can, I take the blame for them (sometimes) and then just sit there and smile while the boss yells at me thinking either one of two things:
      1. Shes just doing it cause he postition requires her to, she doesn't have any beef with me so its okay.
      2. Man this is pathetic, but I'll put up with it cause I'm sure this is the only place where she feels she has power.
      Ofcourse thats the thing I love about these jobs, these are the bottom rung in the ladder of occupations, I can easily quit and get a better job. Well, not with the recession, cause people stopped hiring, but just knowing that as soon as I get a better job I CAN do that was enough to get me through the day. That and I had people who would break my legs if I didn't get money to them. And dont think they wouldn't, my mum knows where I live and has a cricket bat, she could do it!

      Help You Help Me Help You
      At this point I should probably mention my brother, he got back from travelling from Bangkok to Tibet (though only making it to China) through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and other countries I have since forgotten. Now before leaving he was working as a Community Support Worker, and had no trouble getting the job back.
      I paid no notice, untill he told me he was raking in $1500 a fortnight. My jaw dropped, up till that point I was earning at most $400 a fortnight. So I though 'Shit, Sign me up!' Then he tld me the specifics of the job:
      -You care for the mentally disabled and elderly. No problem
      -You cook thier food, do their laundry, and basically keep their house clean. Sounds like a maid, but okay
      -You occasionally have to deal with them shitting their pants. Ah, theres the catch
      -It is possible to earn up to $2000 a fortnight. Right! Sign me up! I'll wipe up the shit! No worries!

      Out Of The Hole Of Debt, Into The Castle Of Dollar Notes And Rolled Coins
      And so the money began to role in, and honestly, the job is a bit full on at first, but if you can grit your teeth and get through the first week, its a peice of piss from there on. I paid the people that needed paying, bought the things that need buying, and thanks to the Government rebate (WOOT!), things sorted themselves uot very quickly.

      And The Rest, As They Say, Is History
      And that catches us up, what a fun game it is, we should play more often. Right now I am at my awesome job, put all the clients to bed and am now free to do anything I want (within reason) around the house. They pay me to sleep here, give me a bed, though I only do it once a week, it accounts for nearly 20% of my pay check alone. Since I sleep here once a week, and since I got not much else to do here but watch tv (which by the way, gets fucking weird after 11pm) I may just write a weekly update. Who knows? It may actually happen!

      Anyways, hope your all well, I'll be up thinking about that question and answer thing I mentioned at the top of this long winded update and checking my watchlist. Why cant everyone take this half assed approach to writing that I do? You get better journals and less entries.

      Anyways, Nighty Night.

      I have one of the worst fucking colds I have ever had, EVER! I couldn't walk yesterday cause my head was spinning, my throat is sore and keeps coughing up mucusy shit, my nose is a tap and is now the heaviest part of my head, and I have such a huge headache.

      I never thought I'd say this, but I dont want head.

      Fuck you cold.

      That's right!

      Watchlist is done, I hope you all enjoyed my scornful, witty, and angry comments, if you didn't, why not? I can only be so angry.

      Which now brings me to my main source of anger for the week: CDs

      When I was young I never listened to music, or more correctly, I heard music, but persude it no further, so for about 15 years I would here the music we all grew up to, but didn't know who sung it or the name of the song, shit I didn't even buy my first CD with music that I wanted to listen to without outside pressure till I was 16!
      Now, at the age of 20, I am trying to make up for lost time, buy tons of CDs at a time where it has never been easier to get music for free.
      I curse my younger self, though I have no doubt he would be cursing me as well, why I have no idea, I just know that I was very angry as a kid. Angry cause I never understood music, and as such couldn't partake in conversations with alot of people cause it was about music. And now I gotta catch up, I only discovered Beck, Led Zepplin, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath in the past 3 years. Infact, the only common bands that I knew of were the Beatles (and they fucking rule, want proof? watch the yellow submarine, my first music film as well, which I first saw when I was 8).

      What make me even angrier is that I'm flat broke and in debt, and now, at a time when I need to NOT spend money, I am having a "what the fuck did I do to my youth" crisis. Fuck you CDs, fuck you and the price tags you wear!

      PS
      Anyone know any bands that I should check out? Remember I am musically illiterate, so dont think "Oh, well those guys are obvious", think "Oh, this guy sucks, I'm gonna lay my musical know-how on his ass!"

      HEY! HO! LETS GO!

      OH BABY! OH YEAH!

      Now that thats out of the way, how are all you kids doing? Staying out of trouble in my absense? I hope not, else things would be boring as shit round here. Well, I decided I'm officail bored with life without RvB, so I'm back (again), and I'm angrier then ever, so prepare to feel my wrath!

      How did it feel? Good? Do you feel dirty? If not then try reading it again after watching a film with thousand of inuendos and you will... trust me.
      Life in my 20's is alright so far, Oh I forgot, I'm 20 now! Yes, I'm now officially reaching the age where I will soon become "old". 20 doesn't feel that different, except that instead of thinking about "what your gonna do in your 20's?" gets replaced with "Why am I wasting my 20's?", strange times.

      Oh and Barrack won! Horray, I guess... I'm not american so I'm not really affected, though now I dont have to worry about getting blow up cause W got confused and confused Afganistan with Australia, They start with the same letter people! And you guys shouldn't feel any safer, you're living in A-merica! Anyways, with only a couple of monthsleft,I cant wait to see who's the next country he'll fuck up. My money's on Uzbekistan, it sounds too ridiculous to resist!

      Anyways, I now have the mighty task of working my way through my watchlist. Jesus people, ever heard of 'outside'? Its a great place to visit everyonce and a while, you know, inbetween your blogging and Frogging (that games fucking awesome!). A any rate, I will be working my way through, laughing at your pictures and riticuling your feelings and mispelling, cause unlike me, my speeling iz superflious!

      You feel me? I do!

    • V01 Map Pack

      11 years ago

      SPARTAN_06

      Well, its has been a while since I wrote anything, so here I am writting something. Although i dont have much news, except that if your still playing Halo 3, I'd keep a look out for several new map variantsthat may or may not be appearing soon on my file share (I've decided not to give definants as I sometimes dont follow through.)
      What you'll find is an onslaught of maps. Both for the Infectious series I've been running, Rearmament Maps, which is just the basic stripping of maps and shking up the way their played, and Remakes, bringing back the golden oldies, even the ones you dont want brought back.
      So far on the list is:
      Definants
      Misery -Infectious Series: Map II
      Tourment - Infectious Series: Map III

      Infinity - Remake of Halo:CE's Chivron Map (I'm already getting tons of hate mail for remaking this, I cant wait till I release it.)
      Biology 101 - Rearmament of Guardian
      Desert Sun - Ghost Range I
      Frozen Link - Ghost Range II
      Cold Field - Ghost Range III

      Still in the Works
      Tombstone - Infectious Series: Map IV (I have to give it another work over and serious testing, it may end up getting scraped)
      Quarintine - Infectious Series: Map V (I haven't quite finished this yet, but all you need to know is that it's Last Resort,and built with the same concept as Misery, trying to keep them in.)
      Bomb Package* - Rearmament of Construct
      More Ghost Range Maps

      Plus Whatever else I can come up with before I get a harddrive

      As you may have noticed, aside from Cold Storage, I have none of the new maps, as my memory unit isn't big enough to hold them, but you can bet your ass' that when I get them, you'll be getting a shit load more Variants coming your way, including Blizzard - Remake of Sidewinder, Bleed Out - Rearmament of Blackout, not to mention all of the possibilities for Foundry, Standoff, Rats Nest, Ghost Town. And you better believe that every one of them will get an Infectious variant.

      In the meantime, I'll keep you updated on whats making into V01, what you can expect from both the heroic and legendary packs, plus countless other variants and game types I got in the works.
      Until their release, I suppose your just gonna have to keep on enjoying Plagued - Infectious Series: Map I and Avon - Reamament of Epitaph plus the many gametypes to play with.

      Case Closed.

      Update Uno
      New map series is coming your way, and so far 3 maps have been made for it. The Ghost Range Series has been developed for the game type Ghosts and Team Ghosts, for the snipers out there. Ghost is an enhanced version of Team Snipers, while the Ghost Ranges are designed with that purely in mind, adding in more cover, and ways to get in and around main camping spots. If you love looking down the scope to where your bullet is gonna hit your enemy, then I suggest you pick them up. Ghost Ranges so far:
      I - Desert Sun: Breathe slowly, fight the heat, take the shot. Sandtrap's Ghost
      II - Frozen Link: Eye down the sight, hold your breath, squeeze the trigger. Narrows' Ghost
      III - Cold Field: Steady your aim, follow your mark, end it all. Snowbound's Ghost

      Plus more to come.
      Out.

      Both Hostel and Apocalypto have their shock moments.

      But, given the historical context, it's more likely the latter was performed with certain truth behind it.

      Perhaps I was a little too effective in describing my dream... but hey, if for that brief amount of time people believed in it, if enough people feel it, anything can come true! Because I honestly believe it is possible... I was just worried no one else would.

      Remember remember the fifth of November
      Gunpowder, treason and plot.
      I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
      Should ever be forgot...


      Allow me first to apologize for this interruption... But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. More than four hundred years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives.

      I hope you have a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot, Daniel.

      Huh, we got our freedom by asking. But I guess we're just two different people. Although to be truthful we're still part of England, but they leave us alone.

      America fought against the British for freedom for years, we won, and then wrote the Declaration of Independence stating we are free from British rule. The final version of the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4th (thus the day)
