      My roommate Keenan has an...obsession with burritos.
      Apparently this gives him license to change MY gamertag picture to amuse his little fetish.

      Last night I went to see Utada Hikaru in concert at the Paradise Rock Club. No pictures per artist request (apparently EMI owns all her image rights); I was near the bar area and too close to staff to try and sneak a (good) shot.

      I learned several things last night:
      1) I am not the only young, black male who enjoys J-pop music. A dude named Shawn flew from freaking Cleveland to see the concert and I saw at least two, three others besides him.
      2) Someone had a "From Texas with Love" sign. It was either a student in residence or someone with $400 to burn on a round trip weekend ticket.
      3) J-pop is also an acceptable hobby for Harvard psychiatry faculty.
      4) Exodus may not be as shitty an album as I originally thought. Listening to some of the songs live has given me reason to give the album a second listen.
      5) My tenor vocal range does not retain pitch during sustained, strong high-range singing. This bodes ill for Muse next month. Must work on my falsetto.

      Here's the set list for all two of you who might be familiar with her music (in no particular order):
      Passion/Sanctuary
      Simple and Clean
      Come Back to Me
      Me Muero
      Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - FYI
      Apple and Cinnamon
      This One (Crying Like a Child)
      Dirty Desire
      Poppin'
      On and On
      First Love
      Automatic
      Can You Keep a Secret?
      Boku wa Kuma
      Stay Gold
      Two unknown songs from Exodus (an album I'm not partial to)
      You Make Me Want to Be Man
      Unknown rock song (really badass)
      SAKURA Drops

    • One Final ME2 Note

      I know I tend to use the word "epic" almost to and often past the point of exaggeration. What I do not throw around lightly is the phrase "epic music."

      On that note, I want to say a big thank you to Jack Wall and his composing team for not only creating a compelling score throughout the game, but writing truly epic and emotional music for the game's final mission. Well met, my friends, well met.

      I'm gonna keep my review short: HOOOOOOLY FUCK. smiley3.gif

      My favorite new party member has to be Legion, the geth seen in the the ME2 teaser trailer.

      The first twist about the Collectors being re-engineered Protheans was jokingly called by my roommates (and I did not begrudge them for it) . The second twist with the Collectors building a human Reaper? My mouth was hanging open for at least 30 secs if not longer. And finally at the end of the credits where Harbinger is leading the Reaper fleet towards the Milky Way? My mouth was wide open again. HOLY SHIT ME3 is going to be so hardcore.

      I ended up romancing Tali and by finally grasping the concept of cover survived the suicide mission.

      And yes I've been playing my Xbox all week but it's the first week of school so if there's anytime I can actually get away with it and still come out okay, it's now. Starting Monday the weekday freeze begins for realz. If you see me in Matchmaking on a weekday, it's probably my roommates using my gamertag (since only two of our blocking group have current LIVE subscriptions).

      Send them an invite and they'll just pester me with "is that another one of your internet buddies?"

      Keenan has brought a PS3 into our hallowed Xbox territory. *hisses*
      Fortunately, I don't like most Playstation games and this saves us from ever having to get a BluRay player.

      But I think my GPA can sleep easier knowing I'll barely be touching the thing.

      Oh, I'm back in Boston and on Xbox LIVE. But I'm really gonna try and keep it to weekend play, so that's the time to ask.

      Is it wrong that I am actually seriously listening to "Make Your Own Kind of Music"? All day?

      They have a thingy were it blocks you from registering if you're < 17.

      But I read the little message, and said I was 23. smiley0.gif

      Squirrel let me stay though, after a wonderful rendition from Lopez_55 and my LN Interactive Tour.

      And my LN Sponsors Poll.
      And my likeability.

      He's a disgrace to the "13-year-old's-on-the-internet" movement passed in 1982.

      Just like every other one here. WHY am I the only seeming < 13 year old here that has any brain power whatsoever?

    • Charliez

      13 years ago

      So true, so true.

      On a completely unrelated but slightly related note:

      Make your own kind of music, sing your own special song, make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings alllooonnngg!

      I did, but I don't have a clue where to start with that one! I'll look into it tomorrow afternoon hopefully. I'm still trying to get someone to fix my gamertag on my profile. It's like pulling teeth. No one is returning my messages.

      yes and yes. sorry, I've got 4 people messaging me at once about 4 different subjects. not trying to ignore you. he paid me the 160 mods he promised - thats a first for me on this site! didn't take me as far as I thought though....from 19% of 42 to 21% of 43. Ah well, it another whole level closer!

      sweet! I don't really care about the mods (I didn't ask for them - I did everyone's sponsorships for free)...it was just the point of it. They said they were going to do it.

      I know the 75 I got from Madison's first contest really helped me to. Other than that, everyone has always been real goo to me and modded lots of my images and journals.

    • Madison

      One of my friends really wanted an RvB T-shirt and thats what he offered in trade. Far more than I would have asked for, but he offered! As long as he pays.....I've had about 3 or 4 of the people I've sponsored say they were going to mod me specific amounts, but I never received them....probably 300 or so total. Thats what I was bitching about a few journals ago. I hate it when people say things and then don't follow through.

      how the fuck did you get to level 42 with only 4000 profile views!

    • crichton1a

      13 years ago

      LOL! That would be fun! I know it's a long way to go....but I do have 180 mods coming early next week (if I actually get them) and I'm hoping that will push me to at least 44 (I just hit 42 yesterday)

    • crichton1a

      It should indeed! Well, I did say I'd like to hit 50 by Christmas...!
