      alrighty lets see where we are this week.

      Its 2am, and ya... Bored so heres whats up...

      Iphone-This is my primary concern. I need $200 by July 11th, so I am trying to keep me from spending money fro a while. I go to Naperville alot to play arcade games, so i am trying to keep it to going once a week, until I get the phone. I may need to ask my parents for $50, but they know I will pay them back.

      Japanese 360-Turns out my friends is going to be living in japan for a few YEARS, so he asif any time I am ready for the 360, just poke him and he will grab one for me. However there are some on ebay right now, so i will try to win one.

      Initial D- This is getting pretty scary as the days go on, its becoming a very close call to know if I will have money in my bank account for this. I pray to god that my paycheck transfers into my account On Friday, so I wont have to wait 4 days, when I will be charged money I dont have. Its been 2 weeks since I sent in the Paper for my paychecks to be added to my checking. This is the last game I am going to import for a while, unless there are low bids on ebay for BEMANI games.

      Damn it Phorrest, you are going to make me broke!- Yes this is another one of my friends from japan. he comes to the U.S. for one month every year selling his BEMANI collectibles. I am only interested in his arches, and he has had some for a while, so i am giving him mediocre offers, but he usually lets them go for that price. This is why I am worried about having money for the iPhone now, because Phorrest returned, and at the worst time. But is I dont act now I will never get any arches. So I sent him some offers, and I am waiting for a reply.

      youtube+website?-I have been working on my youtube recently. I realized it would be great to have a website, however I dont know how to start on correctly, besides freewebs... Anyone have suggestions?

      Thats it for now, I am not in debt or anything, and I know I wont be, I just need to make sure I plan, and spend money correctly for the next 3 weeks. Also moving to a new house is totally not going to be helping... lol.

      as usual i try to make a weekly stop at roosterteeth to give you guys my blogging!

      Yesterday we decided to make The Works Bombs, and when i went to wal-mart to get the supplies... they were out of the main ingredient... The works... I substituted it with another toilet cleaner, which is hiding in the garage from me parents but it works. It takes longer, and gives the same effect. It also seems to blow up faster when the toxins start to expand, so it may actually be a better product to use.

      Tonight I was going to wake up the neighbors by making a bomb at 3 am, and set it off blocks away, but I decided its too risky...

      Anyways, I started becoming a Otaku... I got another DVD, which was Shuffle! Vol. 4. I like this series, cant really explain much about it, besides its one of those tipical guy animes, where the guy needs to chose a girl, and crazy shit happens.

      I reserved Guitar hero World Tour Band kit today. 190-25=165 dollars to go. Now I know I am getting a copy. Now I wait for October...

      My current phone (a Razr) has decided to slowly crap out on my lately. I decided its time for a new phone. I am getting the new iPhone, as I could use one... So I started putting songs in Itunes... I now have over 1000 songs on itunes, and I realized... I may may need the 16 gig one...lol.

      Today I have been working on my youtube (http://youtube.com/user/xkonsentox), and I may add some new videos soon.

      Wednesday I am going to Brunzwick Zone Naperville again to play dance dance revolution SuperNOVA 2, hopefully I will finish my card at level 150, I am very excited.

      I also got a sale on my playasia account, so i used the money to get me this towel...
      www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-20oi-71-3m-49-en-15-bleach+towel-84-j-70-2r0z.html
      I will use it as my new DDR sweat rag. Its a nice towel...
      That order also contains the best PS3 game ever... INITIAL D EXTREME STAGE!..
      www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-20oi-71-bp-49-en-84-j-70-2lx6.html
      Best part is... PS3's are region free!

      Thats all for now...

    • anyways I am moving

      VIVALAMARK

      Ok, I am moving yay. I dont like being by my Dad, so I am very happy.

      I will be moving to the other side of saint charles, but still go to the same high school.

      I will have a room in the basement, not a actual bedroom upstairs, which I will enjoy alot because the base is cold in summer, and warm in winter :D

      I will get to have my 2 nice TV's down there, one will be in "my room", and the other in the BEMANI area.

      I also decided to take my microwave too, seeing as I use it alot to cook food. I also am going to buy a mini fridge. I was looking at this...
      www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4764743
      Its the cheapest one I can find THAT WORKS, I would love a cheaper one, or one thats even smaller, but thats fine, Seeing as I will actually store food in it, and not just soda, and water.

      My last thing is I got some HDMI cables for $2 each. Shipping was $5. I Reserved Initial D EXTREME STAGE, and I decided to throw in a Bleach anime towel for when I play DDR, as a little gift to me. I also ran and picked up Final fantasy XI for PC. Its still installing and updating... After 6 hours... gar....

      My friend is in Japan right now, so he is going to get me a japanese xbox 360 so everything is good. I also forgot to mention I was offered a arcade game. it is in Wisconsin. I will have to wait a while to pick it up. And get this, My Mom DOES NOT want me to get it. However one day when I get my sisters car, I am going to sneak out in the middle of the night and take my Moms truck and get the machine. This wont be for a while though. It could be like near christmas when I do that... lol SORRY MOM!

      Also the 360 was not fixable, it overheated, and you can see it if you know electronics, and motherboards. There is some residue on part of the motherboard, and this just shows that it did indeed partially melt, and is not fixable.

      well thats all for now.

      PS. I love firefox 3

    • we opened

      VIVALAMARK

      ok, so i decided to see what the fuck was in the xbox. Right when I started opening it screws were falling out. this asshole was so cheap, he could not even put the fucking thing back together.

      Anyways, after getting the top case off of it, I removed the fan, DVD Drive, and that white fan direction thing. Then i removed the front Rings of light off the console, and plugged it back in upon removing the motherboard.

      When i flipped it over it took me 5 secounds to figure out what happened. he did the X-Clamp Fix.

      Now if you fuck this job up, and i really mean FUCK THAT JOB UP, it can be a very hard fix.

      I decided maybe the silver thermal paste was bad on the board again, so I just let the console overheat. I am going to do this various times over a time span of a half an hour each.

      The RROD error code is 0020, the unknown one. Some say its the inside being fucked up by its owner, and this definitely looks like it fits the description.

      Anyways earlier today i decided to run over to best buy and buy this...
      www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8106596&st=elfen+lied&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=1571109
      its my favorite anime, it is gory, violent, gross, sad, cute, and its has A LOT of nudity.

      When i walked in to pick it up I noticed something. It was priced for $31.99. WTF. It was marked wrong, and I ended up getting it at that sale price. I save $14.00! ya, its by far one of the best anime series I have watched. I am very happy to own the boxset now.

      Thats really it for now, I am going to see What the hell is with that XBOX. I may post some pictures too, because I am bored.

      the 360 was modded, and I got a full refund.

      I also got to keep the 360 for parts, so I will open it and see whats inside!

      Also my friend is in Japan right now, so i told him to get me a 360 :D

      VIVALAMARK

      ok so I got my japanese 360 yesterday.

      The paint job was a nice touch, but right away I plugged it in to make sure it was broken. Yep, RROD, so I decided to throw it under some towels, and let it overheat because that is what fixed my 2nd 360. I tried that, and no luck, so now I have 2 options...
      1. call microsoft and see if it has a warranty.
      2. open it, and do the X-Clamp fix
      So I will call microsoft and see if its under warranty today.

      I decided my fist game will be The Idolm@ster, and then the squeal, The Idolm@ster LIVE FOR YOU!

      I also am going to pick up metal gear when it comes out.

      Oh and I got my beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD Konamistyle Special Edition Complete, and it was by far the best special edition I have seen for a video game, and the artbook that came with it was astounding!

      I also put together Mya Takamura's Puzzle, and it was also very beautiful, her art is just amazing!

      thats all for now, I may post some pictures later...

      -OMEGA

      edit: I just got off the phone. the console has been modded, and I have opened a dispute on paypal, as a false listing. This console did not get the Red Rings Of Death, Microsoft Bricked the console!

    • game help

      11 years ago

      VIVALAMARK

      Ok so I will have a little amount of money to buy ONE game on my new Japanese 360. I have 3 choices. Then next week I am buying another game for it. This is to test the system, and so I have something to play when I get it.

      THE GAMES I CAN PURCHASE ARE...
      Trusty Bell
      EveryParty
      The IDOLM@STER

      I have played Eternal Sonata before... The game was fantastic, either way I am going to buy the japanese one to see how it is in japanese culture. The story was... still unbelievable.

      EveryParty is sort of like Mario Party... ya, I dont know much more then that.

      The IDOLM@STER is a game where you must train one girl to become the next star, and to perform well at the Tokyo Dome. It has a light novel feeling to it, and mini games. I really enjoy light novels, and I hope the game is not to japanese intense. I am going to buy the new one next week (the limited edition one might I add).

      ya thats it. The Japanese 360 was paid for, and should be shipping either Monday or Tuesday, and from there it is shipping ground from Puerto Rico, so when will I get it? Nobody Knows!

      -OMEGA

    • ok the plan

      11 years ago

      VIVALAMARK

      alrighty today I am paying for my japanese 360. Now I have money left over because I am going to pay my uncle for the game I bought with my next paycheck, with the one I just cashed.

      I decided to grab HDMI cords (x2.0), I found a guy selling them for $6 shipping included, brand new. I will use one for one 360, and one for my PS3.
      I am going to watch for hard drives, and power bricks, but I am going for whatever is cheaper first, as I am going to six flags (a theme park), on Monday, so I will need money.

      I am glad this turned out the way it did, because then while my 360 is shipping, I can already get working on it. I am paying for it tonight, on my brand new paypal account (I was using my Dads before, and I hate him now, so I opened a bank account, and got my own paypal).

      thats it, I will post what I get when I get it!

    • now we play the waiting game...

      11 years ago

      VIVALAMARK

      ya, do I did get my beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD Konamistyle Special Edition Complete pre-ordered just in time. I got one of the last copies, because within the next few hours they were sold out. The total was $203.

      I got confirmation Thursday that the game was shipped. I will receive the game on, or before Tuesday, and thats all I know. I am very excited, and I cant wait until I open my copy of the game. It comes with very sexy artwork too.

      I got my own personal paypal account set up. That is perfect, now I can pay for my XBOX 360 I bought. I am going to wait until tomorrow. I need to start planning what i am going to buy first to complete the system itself. Lets run through the list...

      HDMI Cable
      Power Brick+Cord
      Hard Drive

      It sounds expensive, but trust me, its not. I also am going to attempt to fix this console myself, and if worst comes to worst, I have to send it in, Last time I fixed my core it lasted 2 weeks, and it was REALLY broken too, I did so many things to try to keep it running, but I sent it in, and gave it to my brother while I got my own falcon chipped HALO 3 console.

      I guess thats really it, I am playing the waiting game double times now, for both the 360, and my game I guess.

      -OMEGA

    • ya

      VIVALAMARK

      ok another update...

      IIDX GOLD
      I became very depressed today. I could not find ONE place that had beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD (konamistyle special edition complete) available for pre-order. I was so pissed off, I actually could not believe all 3 sites sold out of every copy they had.
      A friend on a website pointed me out a new site. It was the last place that had it, and I bought it. I saved $20. the total was $203.97.

      The Japanese XBOX 360 Project
      I won a japanese XBOX 360 Yesterday. This is my new project. I dont have the money to buy it by Friday, I will still be about $15 short sadly. It has the RROD, and I am going to fix it up. It also will need a power supply and component hook ups and a Hard Drive. The complete total for the XBOX was $122. This project will take about 2~3 weeks to finish, because money is tight, and I am going to be buying everything off ebay for it, since everything in store is expensive. I also found a few cheap games to go with it, but I will tell you what they are later.

      IIDX area
      ok, in anticipation I have redone my entire beatmania area. It took about 4 hours to get everything working the right way, and I have 8 speakers hooked up to one TV, I am not done yet either, I am going to re arrange the speakers so they are very close to me, and so I will blow my brain out. I tested the system on Guitar freaks V3 and Drummania V3, and holy shit, its awesome.

      other stuffs...
      this weekend I went to the bank, and opened a bank account, and savings account. There is $240.00 in there, and It is all going towards beatmania IIDX 14 GOLD, I have to pay my uncle back, since he had to buy the game, as I do not have my debit card yet. Whatever is left over goes towards savings+the japanese XBOX 360, but again I will still be a little short.

      Thats all for now.
