      I had the day off work today (yippie!) and I will tomorrow as well (double yippie!!)

      So I got to work on the 360 achievements I've been dying to take care of.

      I got "Wall of Recognition" 30G in Halo Wars. I'm working on "Mr. Punctual" 15G "Adjudicate the Arbiter" 30G and "Detour the Great Journey" 50G.

      But on to the good stuff. I finally beat Guitar Hero III on the Expert Career.. "Right Hand of God" 20G. I beat Cult of Personality, One, Raining Blood, Cliffs of Dover, Number of the Beast, and Devil Went Down to Georgia. Almost all in one try, Raining Blood gave me some trouble.

      Tomorrow I'm going out to get Race Driver: GRID. I've had the demo and perfected it, now to get the full game.

      Paco, I'm catching up, you'd better watch you're achievements, cause I'm going to match you up soon.

      And I'm like Gavin, I try to get 80%+ achievements in every game. So Halo Wars, I'm almost done, GH3, almost done, and MW2, nearly done. I'm having a friend come over and do DMC4 on Saturday. Going to get 250 more gamerscore out of that.

      Finally got my 360 back yesterday!!!!! YAY!

      Sitting on the chair waiting on me patiently in the box. I unwrapped it to find a brand new 360 with a black faceplate and a free 1 month! Extra packaging and all.

      I hadn't charged my controller battery in 6 months, so I took the dog around the block and let it charge, came back and it was done. First thing I did after the boot up menu and such, popped in MW2. Beat it on Veteran today, and got almost all of the achievements already.

      Need to work on Halo Wars. I have no idea how Mitzli has "Adjudicate the Arbiter" and "Detour the Great Journey". But I will attempt to catch him on that note.

    • Flying Fur Balls and Crashing Computers

      Yesterday, My computer cable charger thing finally went out. I think my cat started paying with it and bit into it, severing the wire. So my computer died. But before that, my computer randomly crashed, without warning, just *BLOOP* (black)

      I also got started on my Tails drawing, I used the grid method to start just so I could get a feel for it. Next I'm going to do a bigger grid on a bigger piece of paper. Something like a 25.5/33 inch paper. If you know math then you'd know that that number is exactly 3 times the size of a normal piece of paper.

      While I was drawing Tails, my cat decided to hack up a hair ball. I made a quick dash and grabbed a paper bowl, and caught the fur ball. Gross, but better than it landing half on my dresser and half on my guitar case. If that thing hit my case, I would have to burn it and get a new one.

      As you can tell, I finished Tails. I personally think it's pretty good, I dumped about 5 hours into it, so anything that I put that much effort into, I'm usually pretty proud of. I looked a lot weirder without the outline pre-shading. You could make it out, but it looked really weird. The eyes were the hardest, cause they have that glistening from light that is always hard for me to draw. But I think I pulled it off.

      I'm always up for constructive criticism as well. That doesn't mean "u suck cause u liek sonic teh hedghog". That means if you have any (constructive) ideas to help, then I might listen. Here's the link I got it from, I had to do some fancy resizing on my computer (thank you computer art class)

    • Coming Full Circle...

      I sent in my 360 about 2 weeks ago, and it's finally coming back on May 3. SWEET!!

      What I thought was a bit weird though were two things. When I sent it out, it got to Mesquite (the repair center). Then it went backwards to Dallas (WTF?!) Then it went forward to Mesquite again, then it started getting fixed. So no real problems there, just a little weird.

      The second thing was that after the repair, it went to Memphis, Tennessee. Wonder why it went there? Now it's out to Vernon, California, just a little north of LA. If I find out that Paco intercepted that package, I will genuinely KILL HIM.

      And to top it all off, on the site, they say it will be back in 2-3 weeks. May 3 will be EXACTLY two weeks since it would have gone out. That may be why it went to Memphis so say they can say it came in the 2-3 week time frame.

      It also went out weighing 8 pounds, now it's coming back at 12 pounds.... There better be like a stack of 1 months of year long subscriptions in there if it weighs four pounds more. Or some crack, or some pot so Paco and I can split it :D

      Couldn't give me a little early Christmas gift huh Microsoft?

      So an old friend of mine, Chris, is a really great artist that's at an art university right now.

      I'll get him to draw me sometime, but he's freaked out by one song.

      It's called Caramelldansen, and apparently it's Swedish. I downloaded it and it's in my iTunes set, and when he comes home, I'm going to freak him out so bad he'll have a coma.

      I'm going to play it so loud, the whole city will hear it. And it also might make him not want to draw anymore after I show him the video...

      Tee hee. This will be more fun than that time I got a Killtrocity with 3 sniper shots and a grenade....

    • In the Realm of Thought.....

      Somehow, I have harnessed the power to keep from slipping in and out of consciousness...

      I didn't feel like driving today cause I was too tired (that usually happens on Monday mornings). So I took the trolley today and found a nice seat near the window. I put on some Disturbed, which I can strangely go to sleep with.

      But today was different. Just before I fell asleep, I was able to keep myself from doing it, without shaking or jolting or moving. My mind told me to stay awake. And I went from the brink of sleep, back to consciousness.

      And apparently, I also gained the power of ESP. Without looking or hearing anything, I was able to know where I was at any given moment. Just before I got kicked off (cause they do that for "budget cuts") I knew the stop was coming up, but I was at that point of sleep I mentioned earlier, and I could see the stop ahead of me, but I wasn't there yet.

      Is my mind getting in a rhythm or did I really get some sort of powers? I don't know, but I do know this. The mind is a very powerful weapon, and if not used for the good of mankind, can bring upon it's own self-destruction. And no, that was all me, fuck fortune cookies.

      In other news... I made it to round two of the "Stimulus Pack War Face" Tourney! I voted for Cobalt, Mitzli, and DrummerScout in the process. So can I ask a favor of you, can you vote for me in the next round? I've got to compete with a baby in tiger stripes!

      Thanks all!
