Have some Corona’s

This may be at least the second time in my life, maybe the third that I have thought to myself that its a weird time to be alive. I know I have told my friends on a few different occasions that I don’t think now is the best time to be alive with all the craziness going on. People are buying toilet paper online for like $50 a pack. Almost nation wide schools have shutdown for two weeks. Thats nearly insane. We are a week into this two week shutdown and I don’t even know what to say.

I do and have wondered though about the history because its something I don’t know much about and its ever more interesting the more you learn about it. I find myself thinking and wondering about the things my parents and then my grandparents would have lived through. Is it 3 generations now that have been alive since the big W W 2? My parents were born in 45 to 50. Their parents were born sometime in 1900. My great grandma Margaret rode a horse to work in town where she labored for a hotel and had room and board there. She met her husband who also rode his horse to where she worked and they bought a house that I could have bought if I had the money. I didn’t. It was a nice enough place. I would have liked it. I may be close to the last generation that remembers a time before the internet. My kids won’t know what a rotary phone is. I’m getting old and I feel it and sometimes I can’t help but think about death and I am only 41. I wanted to say 40 but I am over that hump. The things and experiences of the past are lost with the last and it saddens me and what saddens me is it seems rare to pass that on to the next generation. I don’t know what to say to that.

I take it as a personal … I can’t even think of the right word. Obligation? Its not that though. Insult is not it. I just want to learn more about the past. Maybe its because I know when I die I know what I will take with me and I can’t pass that on to the next, which is why my kids are important to me. Not because of that but because they are the future. I think as a parent people want to raise their kids right and all they can do is do their best with a little shake of prayer and see how they turn out when they launch. I think I am doing ok but I know I struggle daily and some people have told me that is because I am actually trying but in this week since school has been out of session I can feel it. I can feel this family and what it is like.

The thing that I have learned as a parent is that its not a race you win in a day. Its a day to day to day with an over arc plot. You set your course and you stay on the course. When you find yourself getting off that course you readjust. This week off has taught me things about this family and I am taking that opportunity to learn more, more about myself and more about my kids and my wife and my life. It is indeed an interesting time to be alive and really who knows what will be held in store? There could be tanks in the street next time I write something here… Time will tell. Time will always tell.

The Town

The town was a small place. The kind of place that people with an power of imagination would get sick of being. The kind of place that nothing exciting ever really happened and when it did no one really cared because the boring-ness of the town bore that deep into the people that it sucked them dry of their life. The people in this town didn’t know what it was to live anymore. They didn’t understand what it was to feel or have that edge given to them to just take the next step and jump into life. They didn’t see anything outside their little bounds. They live a life in the unknown and not caring because they are happy in their little sheltered town.

Personally I am truly conflicted if I ever liked it here or not. On one side of the story I liked it because it powered my imagination when I was younger. The otherside, I didn’t like it because truly nothing really ever happened and I didn’t get to experience much like many of the other kids did. I’ve been looking for that step off into the void, into the unknown but I’m drawn back because something always seems to keep me here, but what does truly keep me here besides myself? What do I have to lose by running head first and jumping? Money… But what I’d lose in money I’d more then make up for it in life experiences and when it comes down to it, isn’t that what life is truly all about? The experiences you go through and the things you’ve seen and done? To me that is what the adventure of life is. Being able to try and get out there and try anything and everything!

Old Q&A

This thing is ancient. I mean when did 13 Going On 30 come out?? FYI, Google says 2004…. Holy crap, I should fill this out again. Maybe thats why I kept an empty version on the bottom. Anyways, here we go…..

Part 1. Movies.

1. Whats the first movie you remember seeing? Well, I think my earliest memory is watching Seasame Street and I remember shutting the TV off thinking it’d pause the show, I went outside to play and came back in thinking Seasame would still be on… it wasn’t.. I was sad. Movie though.. hmm.. Maybe Star Wars: A New Hope

2. Ever walked out of a movie theater because the movie was so bad? Theater? No. I don’t goto bad movies. 😛

3. What was the last movie you watched? 13 Going On 30 … before that Pink Floyd The Wall

4. How was it? 13 Going On 30 is a good movie, Garner is funny. Its a feel good romance. The Wall I saw for the first time… It was interesting. The animation was the best part of it.

5. What was the first rated R movie you saw? jeez, so many tough questions.. 🙂 um.. Texas Chainsaw Massacre. just kidding.. Was Terminator rated R?

6. Did your parents know you watched it? probably not.

7. Whats your favorite genre of movie? Action, Comedy, some drama and maybe a good documentary, almost anything that makes you think

8. Whats your least favorite genre? movies that are made to make you cry.

9. Name an actor/actress you have the hots for. Um.. I thought Drew Barrymore was hot, Kirsten Dunst, Erica Dushku… so many.. >:)

10. Name an actor/actress you would go gay for / straight for (if happen to be bi, just pick someone you would be interested in – in the biblical sense.).

Most of the cast of Young Guns 2. They are so grisly and manly looking and their hair is so perfect. Mostly Keifer Sutherland and Christian Slater.

11. Name an actor/actress that you find genuinely interesting. Crispin Glover seems quite.. interesting. I’d love to meet Seth Green, Trey Parker and/or Matt Stone. Girly.. I think Drew Barrymore may be cool. Fairunza Balk(The Craft, American History X, The Wizard of Oz II) would be quite quite interesting.

12. What actor has the best voice? hm.. The guy that does Goliath is pretty good. Keith David. From the Legacy of Kain games, the guy that does Kain(Simon Templeman) and Raziel(Michael Bell) although I think Kain guy is better.

13. What actress has the best voice? hm… tougher one. *like 4 minutes passes* I can’t think of any really great ones.. I like Kirsten Dunst’s though in Spiderman.

14. Whats the last movie that made you cry? Movie? Possibly the Green Mile. TV series? Possibly Freak and Geeks(seriously. Never seen it? DO IT, DO IT NOW)

15. Whats the last movie that was so bad, you had to turn it off (and how long did you sit through it?) Some really really really crappy movie from my girlfriends childhood. Dot and the Kangaroo?. It had real footage in the background but drawn characters.. I couldn’t handle it after like 30 minutes.. *shudder* The Goonies had a better impact back then too.

10. Who is the most overrated musical artist? John Meyer

11. What male singer has the sexiest voice? I really can’t answer this one without really thinking about it a long time..

14. Name a musician you would put on a rocket ship and send into deep space, if given the opportunity. Uncle Cracker.. I hate the sound of his voice and I hate his first popular song was hugely about cheating. Something like “if no one knows, then no one can care” … what a message for kids..

15. Sometimes a song, just playing in the background, can seal a moment in time, and you will forever think of that moment every time you hear that song. Tell us about one of those songs/moments… First/worst relationship, there was a country song.. uhm.. something along the lines of “he likes every little thing about me” or something and if I hear it, or certain Shania Twain songs I have to change them… The songs are ruined.

16. Ever been in a relationship where you had a “song”? Yes, the current one – “Happy to be stuck with you” by Huey Lewis(I believe)

21. How about sad? Something along the lines of Mad World by Gary Jules, Smashing Pumpkins, Wolfsheim, etc

22. How about when youre feeling a little frisky? .. is this like asking what/if I listen to when I’m doing it?? If so.. Scissor Sisters, Daniel Powter-Suspect, Kill Bill Theme, Nine Inch Nails, Static X or some techno-ish kinda stuff.

23. Its too hard to pick just one musical artist you think is terrible. Instead, pick 5. Go ahead an letem have it, too.

Marc Anthony – You sang to me – I don’t like the song and really hate the guy, little ugly fucker.

Uncle Cracker – Follow me – I think hes over rated, he sends a horrible message in that song, his voice isn’t even that great and hes not that cute to be a lead.

John Meyer – All – All that mushy sappy music he sings, grow some balls and get a little edge, your shit sounds a like and is to soft and squishy.

Shawn Mullins – Lullaby – I hate this guy and his voice. I HATE how he carried his S’s and drags out his words.. “Thisssss bar on fairfaaaaax” BANG! Your dead, has-been

Almost any rapper now-days(JayZ, Missy, Xzibit, 50 Cent, etc, etc)… I hate you all and your inability to even try to live in the real world. I hate your egos, how you sing about how your the greatest and I hate the way your changing the youth of this crap-ass country to hip-hop.

One more for good measure cuz I needs ta rant… Classic rock bands(Basically any band that exsists only on the radio because they broke up or don’t put out anything new, ie KISS) FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, JUST DIE! Your bands are dead, you had your spotlight, stop selling your clothes, stop doing tv spots, your a fucking has-been you 65 year old drugged out half dead rocker. Its time to move on. Its on the 70’s anymore and your not popular.

What is your favorite…

24. …album of all time? I honestly don’t pay much attention to albums..

25. …artist of all time? Maybe Phil Collins, Neil Diamond, Buddy Holly, or older people/groups.

26. …rap/R&B artist? Usher, I liked DMX up in here, Eminem is alright

27. …punk artist? don’t know enough punk stuff

28. …rock artist? some 80’s hair(Skid Row, Def Lep, Metallica, GunsNRoses, etc), 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Ra, Wolfsheim, Ozzy

29. …”indie” artist? I may know some but not sure if they are indie so I guess I don’t know…

30. …metal artist? Static-X, System of a Down, Korn, Disturbed, Rob Zombie, Linkin Park, etc

31. …techno/industrial artist? Prodigy, Mezzanine, Scooter has a couple good electronica songs, Lords of Acid has a couple I know I like.

32. …song of all time? These Eyes, Moonlight Shadow, Malking in Memphis, Spooky, Invisible Touch, Life in a Northern Town, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald among about 30 other ones…

Part 5

Video Games

1. Whats the first video game your remember playing? First game we bought and played was Q-Bert for Coleco Vision.

2. Whats the best console of all-time (defined as whatever system has brought you the most fun memories)? NES or SNES, kind of a mix

3. In the next console generation of consoles, which do you plan to get (if any)? The X-Box 360, PS3, or Wii? Most likely the Wii. Sony sucks donkey dick, Xbox is Microsoft… I think Nintendo needs a come back and I believe Wii is it. Its time to take the crown back.

4. How do you think video games will be perceived in the future? Speaking from the generation(or gen after) that really has been raised with gaming its come far. Society is now being raised with them and they are getting visually better, almost movie like. For the future, I think they may surpass movies as the new medium, but I’d still like to see more PC based instead of all console.

5. What video game has the best music? Obviously it’d probably have to be a Final Fantasy for best music, but which is the catchest theme? Maybe Mario 1..

6. Whats the last game you successfully beat. God of War I guess.. A bit disappointed, I was hoping it’d last longer and the final boss attack scheme was pretty weak.. Although going through it was cool, very visual.

7. Be honest…has a video game ever made you cry? (temper tantrums as a child dont count.) … cry.. hm.. Maybe when I figured out what happened to Red 13(spoiler alert).

8. Describe your favorite victory in a game. Any FF final boss fight feels good to beat the first time. I’d have to say Starsiege though. I played through the game, got to the last guy(Prometheus) and could beat him. His weapons would randomly be choosen so you couldn’t get an ideal setup, I tried about 15 times before I gave up hope. About 3-4 years later I re-installed the game and loaded my save games and wanted to try again.. About 3-4 times I finally killed him, was close fight. The ending was short but worth it. Then once my bro and I deathmatched in Unreal Tournament 2003, was a good deathmatch.. I was trying to let him win by aiming at the floor but we ended up on the last kill running in circles around each other and I got a shot on him.. he was pissed..

9. Do you play MMORPGs? I have, but don’t. Tried Guild Wars, ROSE Online, Maple Story, Silkroad, EVE Online… I’m waiting for SUN to come out.. looks AWESOME!

10. If so, how many hours have you put into them? All those games I put a 4-5 hours a week maybe just trying ,, never found one I really liked much.

11. Answer this without feeling like a total loser: Whose the hottest video game character of all time? I thought the Battletoads were pretty hot.. 😀 I guess Tifa was hot although if I was a chick Vincent Valentine would be quite hot…

12. What game has the worst ending? I thought as much effort as I put into Rygar(NES), that ending was crap, like 1 picture and 4 sentences.. Its one of those that freezes the system and you had to press the Reset or turn the system off.

Whats your favorite…

13. …ending in a game? hm.. I guess I didn’t like any because I can’t think of any real good ones. Maybe Ninja Gaiden, those are pretty good.

14. …character? Vincent Valentine(FF7) or the main guy from Devil May Cry

15. …type of game? Action, Adventure, RPG

16. …RPG? Final Fantasy 2(SNES) although its like 4-5 on the Famicon. I guess maybe FF7 too.

17. …Fighting Game? Street Fighter or Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge(arcade)

18. …Street Fighter II/Mortal Kombat character? Blanka / Rayden

19. …Adventure Game? Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

20. …Puzzle Game? Uru: End of Ages

21. …8-bit game? (NES era) Contra

22. …16-bit game? (SNES/Genesis era) Final Fantasy 2

23. …32-64-bit game (PS1/Saturn/N64 era) Turok

24. …128-bit game? Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Devil May Cry..

24.5. …PC game? Simcity 3000, Syndicate Wars, Relentless: Twinsens Adventure, Descent, Duke Nuke’em, among others..

25. …arcade game? X-Men, Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter

26. …game of all time? FF2, Simcity 3000, Wing Commander, Descent Freespace, Doom

27. …story moment? I always loved the parts in FF’s when you got the airship. I love that time in Contra when you had to shoot that alien or when Mario had to save the princess. hmm.. .. ok.. In Planescape: Torment. That story moment was awesome because the entire story was just awesome. That has the best story in any game, any system of all time. Rivals or goes beyond an FF, I’ll put my money on it. A pity I don’t think it came to any console… I loved how the main character had amnesia and couldn’t die and he had to figure out why.. Awesome … Planescape is an interesting world/plane.

That is all.

Moment of Stupidity

Have you ever had one of those moments where you’ve asked yourself what the fook your doing? I had one of those moments awhile ago because I like to keep notes in a text file on my desktop and after a few months of notes I usually end up sorting them into separate files to be more organized instead of one giant messy file. Well my moment came about when I was sorting my notes and I probably had like 6-7 text files open and I was adding to one, saved and closed it but after editing a couple other files I came across the same file I saved and closed earlier, the old version. So I presented myself with a dilemma because I’m not technically sure what would get saved so I wanted to make sure the updated one was the one I saved so I went back and opened it then copy/pasted its contents into the new(old) one and saved and closed both then re-opened just to make sure and it was all good.

Maybe a bit overkill but I like to be cautious when it comes to my thoughts and remembering the good ones.

Pipe Dream

Apparently this is just some random dream I had that I decided to write down….

There were two groups that get caught and jailed in some futuristic prison, sort of Nazi type like. We were jailed near by each other and each cell had cameras in it. After awhile I learned how to access information about the prison from the camera by hacking into it(its the future, cybernetics??). I learned the combination to the cell doors and planned to get us all out, but to do this I had to communicate with the other cell, which I couldn’t without going into the other cell. So over a matter of time I faked that I was working in the other cells “sector” and worked into the cell. Eventually some big shot that worked in both our sectors came in and saw me but I convinced him that I was there as a spy to gather information.

Each cell had “layers” where the guards and others hung out. I had to work into those to gather more information about the breakout. In gathering more information from around the area I came into an empty room. The room was clear and basically a large rectangular room but at the end of it was fresh concrete in the floors and walls. I walked further into the room to see what the concrete was for and saw a large hole in the floor. Thinking this might be a way out or hiding spot I inched closer. At the edge I saw small canisters, like old soup cans but a little bigger. It was an odd site and perplexed me(but I recalled no one ever came out of this place) and it hit me like a brick in the face, these cans contained the ashes or remains of previous prisoners and they were being concreted into the walls and floors of the place.

After a few runs back and forth I worked a plan to get us all out. We set it up that I’d get my group out first and at that time the others would get a guard into their cell and kill him and wait for us. Eventually we gained weapons with each guards death but it all ended up that we had to fight our way out because our presence became known. We got outside and tons of guards were waiting…..

Then I woke up!!
