      So Hi, it's been a while since my last post... been busy moving and settling in to the new job. Things have been going well lately and i felt like jumping on to say hi... so hi.

      On a slightly sucky note my xbox one died and i had to have it sent back to be replaced... sucky but not the end of the world, just not looking forward to reinstalling those games... soooo... long....

      How have you been? who's still a frequent visitor to this site?

      So i woke up this morning feeling like i had been up all night, if it was a weekend i probably would have just slept for half a day and felt fine... instead i had to go to work so now i'm doing everything i can to stay awake and try and get stuff done. These kind of days suck so bad lol

      Other then the odd lethargic morning i've been feeling rather good, life is kind of boring but hey at least it isn't horrible. The next big event in my life is Supanova Sydney around July? and i want to make a costume for it this year... my only problem is finding a light weight costume that will suit me. I'm thinking a soul reaper from bleach might be a good idea, light outfit and easy to travel with.

      Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

      Well i best get back to doing this work,

      Later.

    • Finally saw Ender's Game...

      5 years ago

      ... and I'm glad i read the book first, though i could have done without seeing the movie.

      The movie lacked any of the impact the book had and appeared to be a story about a little kid with anger and authority issues that was for some reason needed to save the human race. I say for some reason as Ender did not appear to be any different then a normal kid his age, he didn't figure out any great strategies or earn the respect of the other kids, instead he was told how to do things from other characters and was forced to be around the other kids so what was so special about him? It made no sense.

      I went into the movie expecting it to be nothing like the book as i had heard multiple times from others that it was nothing like it but i didn't expect that piece of crap. The movie had multiple holes in it that you would only be able to figure out IF you had read the book also and it explained large parts of the movie with a simple comment, taking away all of the impact it should have left. There were parts directly from the book and it was clear that they were thrown in there to hold the link between the movie and the book as most of them simply didn't fit correctly in the story.

      Sadly i was hoping that at the very least the battle room scenes would make the whole movie worth it and while it did look fairly impressive if you blinked you would have missed it. There was only one full battle and a couple of training moments and that was it. And unfortunately even the impact of the battle room was offset by the obvious romantic connection they had added between Ender and Petra.

      Overall i was expecting a low grade movie with little story and lots of special effects and what i saw was so crap i didn't even bother to stick around for the end of the movie, this might be the worst translation of book to movie ever made and even as a movie alone it was far from decent.

      I like that their solution to hiding it from Kerry was the parental Christmas present tactic of hiding it up high where he can't reach, classic.

    • Not Starring, these important parts from the book

      The "not starring" part of this video is as honest as it gets. Man they screwed up a lot of that movie.

      Also i need to stop watching these videos... i get nothing done when i do.

    • Hey, where's the other guy?

      Does it make me evil that I'm glad my boss is in pain?

      OK so I'm actually just glad he isn't coming into work today, it makes for a more stress free environment when i don't have someone constantly watching over me while i work.

      "Look at ME!!" boasted the fit old man, pounding a very flat and firm stomach, having just finished 100 situps before a group of young people.

      "Fit as a fiddle! And you want to know why? I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't stay up late, and I don't chase after loose women!!"

      He smiled at them, teeth white, eyes aglitter, "And tomorrow -- tomorrow, I'm going to celebrate my -90th- birthday!!"

      "Oh, really?" drawled one of the young onlookers, "How?"



      Go do something fun. You don't want to end up old and boring. I said it last night, but happy birthday again.
