      New RvB? I guess I'll be back every so often.

      How is everyone?

      I had hoped that the MJ coverage would settle down maybe a little after his memorial.

      Instead, we have hours of media coverage on who the biological father of his kids are (private maybe?), the conditions of his face and whether there will be an open- or closed-casket funeral (private, MAYBE??), and the assumed location of his corpse at every single moment (PRIVATE, MAYBE?!).

      In our devotion to a monumental icon of music, we have defiled the only sanctuary of privacy he had left.

      What glimmer of faith I've had left in mainstream media has been shattered. YAY

    • Vacations...and Princesses

      So I'm finally getting a vacation; last time was late last year. No work for two weeks, and time to just relax and enjoy life. As per usual, I'm heading to Minnesota to the family lakehouse. Waterskiing, tubing, I may even bring my telescope to check out the beautiful skies up in lake country.

      On a whim, I rented Princess Mononoke from Netflix, and watched it last night. What a fantastic movie, and a great start to my vacationings...now if only I didn't have to work this afternoon.

      Eight hours until freedom!

    • RvB Recreation and Catching Up

      10 years ago

      ThirdEchelon

      So Recreation looks to be interesting. What's this I hear that Tucker's dead though? We haven't even seen him recently. If anybody knows where this is coming from, I'd love to hear it; Tucker was never really my favorite but he had his moments early on in the old series.

      My birthday's on Sunday, which is exciting. Unfortunately it's also my girlfriend's last night in town, and I work. What the h. Probably going to have to have someone cover the last bit of it for me, so I can spend some more time with her. If you weren't aware, she's going to New Zealand to study next semester, so I basically won't see her till December. Which is a really long time to not see someone when you've only known them for six months. So while I'm really happy about it, I also am really bummed; she's the first actually awesome person I've dated in about four years, and we're going to have to put things on hold till she gets back. Woo Skype.

      I've been trying to search for headphones, I have had crappy earphones since my last pair broke in January. Checked out Best Buy, and found that a lot of companies are charging way too much for, well, everything. Probably the best thing I found were Skullcandy Skullcrushers...only $70, but a little too obnoxious with the bass. I listen to music that's good enough without physically assaulting my lower register. The worst deal I found were Beats by Dre, from Monster. Only $229, for an unremarkable, over-styled pair of headphones. Fail.

      I'm going to keep doing my research for good, audiophile-quality headphones, but if anyone has any good recommends, or reviews, I'd love to hear them.

      ThirdEchelon

      Has anyone played these games? I played Fluxx in middle school and just got a new deck; I can't stop playing it. The best part is that whoever I play it with, they always seem to love it.

      Haven't gotten Chrononauts though, it sounds like such a fun game.

      ThirdEchelon

      Haven't been on here really in a long time. For me at least. Things have been going well, I'm working full-time at my current job, which is something I've never actually done before. Just hope I don't get burnt out on that, cause it's the only reason I have money right now, heh.

      The girlfriend is leaving for New Zealand in early July, and our last day seeing each other till December is on my birthday, the 21st. We're still not really sure what's going to happen to our relationship, to be honest. She's easily been one of my best friends in our past four months, and I'm really hoping that when she gets back that we'll get back together or at least be good friends.

      Just got Left 4 Dead last night, played it with a buddy of mine from 1 till 3 in the morning, heh. Great game, but I really feel like it's built as a multiplayer experience. So if any of you guys want to play, don't hesitate to send an invite, heh.

      Go see this movie. Really, really well handled. I would trust Abrams with just about any property in Hollywood after this. What a way to really start the summer movie-fest. Sorry, Wolverine lovers, but Star Trek goes light-years farther with this movie.

      IV Volume One is my favorite by far... so dark and evil... I fucking love it.

    • wizardmon5

      Well the issue is... She's pretty much my favorite person to be around. I'm absolutely crazy about her. I'm hoping she feels the same about me, and is willing to work around the religion issue, but the ball is really in her court at the moment. All I can do is explain my situation on Sunday and see what she says. I feel like I owe her the truth, and I'm just hoping she can accept it...

      And I don't even think it should be a huge issue. Like, it's not that I'm an atheist and she's a hardcore Christian or anything. The situation is that I've never been around religion (my parents never took me to church or anything), not that I've chosen to reject it. I'm open to learning and all that. So I'm hoping that instead of, say, leaving me because I'm not religious, that she'll help me learn more about it.

      ...Sounds reasonable, right? Hopefully...

      Its weird to see two conferences that are so different clash, because the way teams from different conferences play ball and the talent they try to get has become so different that it makes for very interesting games.

      Big 12 teams are all about offense... most of our teams have a pretty weak defense (or maybe they just look weak because of how powerful the Big 12 offenses are)

      The ACC is all about a fassstt defense... and boy Clemson's defense is fast. Fortunately their offense is nothing to write home about.

      Our offense is pretty damn potent but our defense (other than our dominating D-line) hasn't been spectacular. Its gonna be interesting to watch.

    • Zerotide2

      10 years ago

      So looks like we have Clemson in the Gator bowl. Think we can do it?

    • Zerotide2

      10 years ago

      Oh and we had our fair share of bullshit plays haha. That fake field goal should've been a turnover on downs where the holder had his knee down. The kicker moved out of position while the holder still had it in his hands and while his knee was down. This would've made the holder the "quarterback" and he would've been down. Big 12 refs are the worst. Not to mention that nasty hit on Niles Paul by the Mahnke bitch at the end of the second. Helmet to helmet on an unprotected receiver and the ball was already down on the turf.

    • Zerotide2

      Wow I gotta say that was a great game. It was probably our sloppiest of the entire year and the officiating was absolutely terrible but all that made for an exciting outcome. Who'd have thought a 57 yarder? Thats a heartbreaker I'm not gonna lie... it should've been a easy win for us but I think we overlooked you guys. Nonetheless, we're goin bowling and the puffs are sitting at home lol. Should be another good one next year, looking forward to it.

      Just glad it's in Lincoln. I have respect for the CU program, not for its fans. Case in point: the laser pointer in the OSU qb's eyes last game. I've heard some horror stories about the student section at Folsom. Here at Lincoln they have us tucked away up in the south endzone. Bastards.

    • Zerotide2

      10 years ago

      Your offense has only scored 194 points this season... I don't think we're too worried haha... and when Ganz is on his game he's really on his game... combined with the fact that we have a breakout HB that has rushed for over 300 yards and 3 TDs in the last 2 games (while sharing touches with 2 other running backs) I think you should be the one scared. Prepare for a spanking on national tv :P

      No actually I received a bogus careless driving. Well maybe not bogus... I was driving pretty insanely. Fortunately the cop came to court with nothing but "but, but, but, but I saw him do a and b." I plead not guilty and asked them to prove it. Nobody in traffic court gives a fuck so it was dropped.

      I know how that is... Omaha has over a million people now along with a brand new 20,000 seat arena but we still get passed over by alot of people. Frustrating sometimes. Only time I got to see Co&Ca was when they opened for Linkin Park, and I think I was the only person there to see Coheed haha. The crowd only got into it when they played Welcome Home which I think was due mostly to it being in Rock Band... sad.

      The thing on the poster isn't even a main character. In fact, I don't recall specifically what that thing was, in the movie. A very small role, at best.
