      I have a date this friday evening.

      I haven't said that in a long time, so I'm just going to sit back and let it settle.


      Any ideas for food genres?

      I usually listen to the Drunk Tank podcast, and I've always noticed that they often talk about the death of physical media.

      They coo about how they love digital distribution...then later complain because it sucks.

    • #150 - Benefit

      My friend Gordon and I performed at a benefit concert for Helping Hands, a program that apparently gives school supplies to children who can't afford it. I certainly was not at the top of my game that night, not by a long shot, but we did record it, so I've included links to the ones that I was in on. Heck, the room was full of mostly old people, and so I felt like taming it down a bit anyway, and I think that came through...

      Regardless, I hope you enjoy 'em.
      (Also, this is somehow journal #150)

      The boy, his fruitless work for the day expired, anguished that the answer had again eluded him. Eyes aching from the skimming of white-on-blue code scrolling endlessly by, and his throat at last sated by his drink, he turned his thoughts to the morrow, and retired to bed, where he lay thinking until, lo, Dawn, with her rose-tinted fingers, stretched across the sky.

    • The Last Airbender, pt 1

      20 very necessary half-hourish episodes condensed into a movie around 2 hours long. I don't think I need to say anything more.

      But I will. I like the sound of my own text.

      My actual numerical review is pending me getting some soda and playing some more New Super Mario Bros Wii, but for now, I have a few points about things.

      The show, for any who haven't seen it, is actually good. Its a kids show, sure, but in the same way that Samurai Jack is a kids show. It is full of references to other things, it has intelligent humor, it has some toilet humor, and it never talks down to the audience. Aang is written in a believable manner to what I imagine a 12-year-old-boy would do if he found out he was important on a world scale. When I was 12, I was playing snes, so I figure he handles it better than me.

      All the characters are pretty good, actually. And they don't shy away from reality.

      The show also takes its time to introduce us to the world. This is a normal thing in concepts that rely on otherworldy places, which is what I'd call the world of element bending.

      This new movie does not. It is breakneck.

      Also, characters, or something. I dunno; my caffeine supply is low today.

      Until next we meet,

      I don't know if anyone here was even still watching the Project Offset site, hoping against all odds that one day news of this game would be published once more, but I'm here to tell you the wait is over.

      The game has finally, and unceremoniously, been canned.

      Turns out, Intel only bought 'em out to get their hands on the tech Offset Software had made. Surprise!

      So, on the 17th of June this year, I'd had these infernal braces for one year. They're not really so bad, sometimes, but I do so hate them.

      Today, I had my most recent meeting with my orthodontist, and they did their usual nonsense while I was forced to stare at a screen above my chair showing me the ending of Up, and then starting over. I can't touch my teeth all the way due to one of their experiments, and its going to be that way for 7 weeks. This, I'm used to, but I'm not used to the drive home, and what it brought.

      I was on the road, singing to Heartache Tonight on the radio, when I feel a pop in my mouth. I look up into my rear-view mirror and I see that the tooth next to the canine on my right has popped back behind the front tooth and the canine due to the stress of the wire. I mean, no more than a millimeter, but still. Usually, change in the mouth comes very slowly, but a literal pop is a new sensation.

      I'm beginning to think that orthodontistry is voodoo.

      I just hope I can get my tooth back where it belongs, in time.


      PS I caught up on my alerts, but I admit I didn't read every single journal I'd missed. Willow had 40+, but I only read about half of that (the more recent ones [<3 willow]), and KWierso had something like 280. Which I didn't read at all.

      If I missed something you'd like my paltry opinion on, lemme know. :)

      Haha, well, it's a bit different here XD
      We're angry about our politics fucking up our country and stealing money and talking bullshit, and they do that a lot. We complain about that. Mostly at home.
      But if our premier divorces his wife to marry a younger chick he was cheating on his former wife with, or female politicians pose for a calendar, we're okay with that. It might get mentioned in the news, some affairs are dragged out in the muddy newspapers that make their business on that, but generally the public doesn't care too much for personal lives of out politics, or celebrities.
      I showed the article and photos to my mother, and her response was: "I know like one of those, they're mostly new. Until they're naked, it doesn't have a chance to be scandalous here."
      Hope that helps answer that ^^ ;

      I agree.
      Some of the people in the thread taht got linked to me were trying to expand upon the idea, and have his limbs turn into tenctacles and have him being some form of tree monster thing

      But i liked it better when you just didn't know, and it's just some Freakishly tall figure in a suit, with no facial features who appeared in the background of photos.

      He's probobly going to find his way into my stories when i'm older

      but there are something else very special with Dr.Rind that I'm kinda surprised no one has caught onto yet.

      Well, considering she's an exchange student, there's nothing wrong with it per se. . .

      It is however completely grammatically incorrect, the names are wrong, some of the characters can't be processed by the printer, and it's honestly not a decent review even if it was in English.

      I would listen as well, but I'd probably laugh the entire time.

      oh i believe it full outright. i have seen planty of warnings like that, but its a warning. it doesnt mean they will actually do anything about it.

      now a few days after that aired on tv, glenn beck was informed by a represenative from the government that the bugs, trackers, and all spyware has been removed and that warning is no longer a threat.

      thats the part i dont believe. if they wanted to track people they dont need to tell them outright, they could just do it.
