    • Inglourious Basterds (among other rants)

      9 years ago

      da83man83

      One thing I enjoy a lot is going to the theater to watch a film. The smell of popcorn, the Sour Patch Kids, and the annoying workers there. I just got home from the midnight premiere of Inglourious Basterds (yes that is how it's spelled). Instead of coming out and telling you how I felt about the movie, I need to say a few things about what happened before the movie.

      First off, the theater I went to would ID everyone. Not just the marginal looking viewers. You walk up with a cane, wrinkly skin, and a Vietnam veteran hat on, you better make sure you have your ID with you. It was absolutely ridiculous. One person who came with me does not have an ID. They don't drive, and don't travel, and have never needed to get one. They are 18 years old, and look plenty old enough to watch an R rated film. The person at the front counter would not let them in. After that fiasco, they got a ride home and a few of us proceeded to the theater. At the door is a person checking tickets...understandable. He then asks for our ID's. Everyone had their ID checked twice. I just bought the ticket, why the fuck do I have to show the ID again. I voiced my anger to him and he said it was the policy, then buried his face in his chest in shame.

      Next, the previews come on. I saw the same Friday's BYOB(uddy) ad three times. That just made me not want to go there. Then comes the actual previews and to make the night even shittier, it is for Halloween 2 - Rob Zombie Style. Can people please leave classic horror films alone. The unaware populous today will only watch these newer movies and think they are original. I had the girl next to me say, "I didn't realize Michael Myers had a sister."

      WHAT? That is the whole point of the movie, and they failed to understand that. Then there is the Friday the 13th remakes that are just plain garbage. It's like people say, "That movie was so awesome back then, lets try to redo it for now. It totally wont suck!" Shitty movies piss me off, but shitty remakes of great movies just bother me to no end. It's like a modern artist trying to repaint the Mona Lisa. It can't be done.

      Then comes the movie, and it was amazing. It had an old west type of feeling, only placed in Nazi-controlled France. The acting was great, and Quentin Tarantino did an outstanding job creating this story. Some people wont like it cause the viewer doesn't feel like part of the movie. It plays out more like a book with chapters breaking apart sections of the plot. I found that to be the part that made the movie work so well. It has humor in it that takes place in the situations, rather than trying to pound comedy into the viewers face like most movies. I highly recommend watching this movie.

      To: Xbox Live Users

      From: Jb83

      Earlier today I rented Avatar from Blockbuster with that nifty Summer Escape Week Pass where I get unlimited rentals for $10. I get online, get the 1000 GS and I'm feeling pretty good about myself. Then the unheard of happened:

      Xbox Live went down!

      Microsoft is punishing the masses for me being an achievement whore and playing this game. I would like to apologize to everyone who was playing a game, watching a show, or just enjoying a friendly conversation with a buddy. My bad.

      Sincerely,

      Jb83

      LeBron James hits quite possibly the biggest shot in Cleveland Cavalier history with 1.0 seconds left in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

      Using the NBA's "Where Amazing Happens" style, I made a video of the shot.

      Let's play a game. Think of the most popular TV show or movie that you are completely unfamiliar with. If it's a TV show, you should have never seen a single episode of it. Then, try to explain in very specific detail what happens on that show based on what you remember from previews and people talking about it. Don't try to be cute or funny, just try to describe everything you know about the show. Try to give as much detail about specific plot points as you can. Here's mine:

      Lost

      There is a group of people who were on a plane, and the plane crashed on an island. The island is deserted and this doctor like person takes charge of everybody and helps them out. There is a shadow monster on the island, and also a polar bear, which is amazing to them considering polar bears are in cold weather, not sunny death islands. At one point, some of the people get off the island, and the people are all connected in some way. Then the island does some Back to the Future shit and travels through time. They are in the 70's sometime during this time travel. Then, the people who got off the island go back to the island because they most love being stranded in the middle of the ocean.

      It's a fact, you have a better chance of dying from a common form of influenza.

      The reason people have died in Mexico of it, but not America...
      because it's fucking Mexico. They die from stubbed toes and hang nails there.

      Get over it America.

      I am awake this late on a school night doing massive amounts of homework and for once I am glad that I am still awake. I finished my work about an hour ago, but I am still awake.

      Why you may ask?

      Syracuse vs. UConn

      As I type Syracuse is trailing 106-108 in the 5th Overtime! A Big East record. This is the longest game in Big East history. There is 1:13 left in the overtime and I am going back to watch it. I advise you to do the same.

    • The Quest to 30,000

      10 years ago

      da83man83

      As much as i hate to admit it, I will be taking part in an achievement contest over the summer. As of right now, the tentative mark my brother and I have set is 30,000 total gamerscore. At the moment, he holds a 1,400 point edge over me while I am flirting with 13,000. I will be signing up for Game Fly to give myself an edge over him, since he will be trying to find used games and borrowing them from friends, and I can just get them quickly over the internet.

      I have a sort of plan to get my first few thousand by playing Avatar (pathetic, I know, but simple) and King Kong. Then I will move to some of the older basketball games I haven't played and get a lot of those ones as well. From there I don't know where to go. Any suggestions on easy games to get achievements, preferably around 500 per game very easily, would be greatly appreciated. I will be looking at what games Geoff played to get his quick 10,000 but any other help would be great. The winner will get a video game at the expense of the other player.

    • Merry Christmas?

      10 years ago

      da83man83

      Two nights ago, my sister came up to my house that we could have a small Christmas with her and her daughters since they would not be here on Thursday. We open up all the presents, I got The Dark Knight, and then I hear my sister screaming for us in the basement. I walk down there only to be greeted by a massive flood. Apparently, the previous night, one of the pipes in my parents bathroom froze due to the sub-zero temperature. When the thing thawed out, it burst. So now we have water falling from the ceiling to the basement like a small waterfall. We shut off the water to stop the small cascade, then had to use the ShopVac to suck up the standing water in the basement.

      With it being Christmas time, you can only imagine how hard it is to find a plumber. Finally, one was reached, and they are currently fixing the pipes to hopefully prevent this from happening again. I sure hope so, because I hate peeing in a bottle and having to drive 10 minutes to my grandparents to take a dump. My parents are staying in a hotel in town, but I wanted to stay here, in my bed, and with all of my stuff. I'm thinking that this problem will be resolved in the next hour, because the plumbers seem to know what they are doing and are working swiftly.

      This is exactly how I pictured I would be spending Christmas Eve...

    • Why?

      10 years ago

      da83man83

      Dear World of Warcraft:

      Why must you find it necessary to ruin the past 2 nights of my life through updates? All I want to do is enjoy the game that so many people already play, but instead, I get barraged by swarms of updates. So far, I have wasted 2 nights of my 10-day free trial just updating. Is that why you offer this free trial? So that people don't get charged game play time for updating? Or is it that you have a strong hate for me and don't want me to play this game? Did I make fun of you in 2nd grade and now you are torturing me for it? Speak to me WoW! Why must you cause me so much torment before I even begin playing?

      Sincerely Yours,

      A Pissed of Gamer

      Can you blame him? Look at it from our perspective. We are winning 4-0, working on our 5th score when suddenly host lags out and now your 4th is conveniantly online. Looks fishy when looked at from our shoes.

    • RLWrestler88

      10 years ago

      Where in there did he make it known that it was your problem? The fact that NKOT needed to go to bed is because we waited half an hour for your 4th to show up, but he didn't show up until the 3rd time we tried to play the game. I'm not trying to cause a problem here but we scheduled it for 9:30. If we were dicks about the situation, we would have made you play right then and there. We waited over half an hour for your fourth, and even offered to let the party open to 8 so that if he signs on, you can invite him to the game.

      Vista looks essentially identical to XP, but it obviously functions mildly differently to fit with vista. You can either set it to boot to bumptop or turn it on manually (you'll notice I have a bumptop shortcut on my left wall) via a single shortcut, and exiting is as easy as a right click command or Alt+F4.

      Thanks man. It's tough though, being younger and feeling less appreciated and important than everyone. It means a lot for you to go out of your way and say that to me, and I really appreciate that. So, thanks, and if AD ever wants to get a 9-0 win sometime, hit me up, and we would surely play against you guys. It would be a true honor.
