joe strummer was much more gangsta than 50 cent could ever be
When they kick at your front door
How are you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How are you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting on death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

WORD! everytime i listen to the clash, i am reminded of why they are so amazing. good god. thats just striaght gangsta!

my life long dream
to be the "pin monkey" at a bowling alley is not, and likely will never come true. maybe they'll let me make the fries!

homo-erotic, hyper-violent, ridiculousness
anyone ever hear of a dvd called Stella Shorts? Its got 3 guys from the state (Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wein). The humor is kinda off from the state but ridiculous none the less.

i can't keep typing, b/c i have the farts.

holy sh!t
hey did you guys know that the police played a show... like really recently. i love the police, so this has me infurated. why you may ask... i'd be thrilled if one of my favorite bands was back together and playing shows... well yeah, i'd be super stoked and i'd buy tix to every police show from here to mars, but....... no sting. whats worse than the police without sting? how about the police, with brandon boyd. yeah, that brandon boyd, incubus status. mixing the police with incubus is like mixing milk with mustard. its just wrong.
you can d/l the video footage off of www.suprnova.org... LOOK AWAY!!!

first tunrs!!!
going to vermont this weekend, first days of riding of the season! conditions should be crappy, but i'm not gonna let that bring me down. ice is faster than snow anyways! see you in the ER!!!

stratton is so mellow that its claimed my body parts in the past. its all so smooth and easy that i like to see if i can break the speed of sound on my way to the bottom. usually i just hit trees, kids, and the like.

best part is, i can restock on long trail ale! i've been out for months, sobering times tend to be the worst of times.

em effen MF at BB's
MF DOOM @ BB King's the wed before thanksgiving. how many tickets do you have?
i'm done hypin doom on live journal, just go see the show. he's the ghostface killah of the underground.

i want my xbox, i can't wait 2 more weeks.

got the next cabinet for conversion. its a "Avengers" cabinet. you know that 4 player side scrolling beat em up from the 80's. either way, its gonna be the chickens tits! i mean, ironman is on the cabinet. whats better than that? oh and if anyone gives a shit, which i'm sure you don't, we are using 100% genuine HAPP parts this time. No more really innovative joysticks from countries where people drive on the wrong side of the road and don't understand that in order to be satisfying, a joystick needs a substantial "throw" (the distance it travels before it hits the switch). bah.

i still want my xbox.

alright this is scary
i've been on the grand theft rampage for about 3 weeks now, and my CJ is becoming more and more like myself. they say that pets accurately reflect their owners, and if the same goes for my CJ in grand theft, well its gonna get shitty.

I used to go to the gym really often, and eat right.
CJ used to go to the gym daily and eat fairly often, now he doesn't eat, and hasn't been to the gym in months... JUST LIKE ME!

I used to dress to impress...
CJ hasn't been to the clothing store since his first day back in good old San Andreas. He's a scummy lookin bastard. JUST LIKE ME!

NOPE! none for me, none for CJ. awsome, no wonder neither of us can get laid.

Sealing the deal at the end of a date...
CJ seems to just drop denise off and have better things to do. I on the other hand am a jackass. Bottom line, 2 dry willies.

Well in a few more weeks, it seems CJ won't want to leave grove st. Because he will have picked up his own copy of the game. Then i will be playing cj, playing cj, playing the game, and then blogging at work about how much gta immitates life.

why are you so rad.... 8
a lot of people ask me why i have the screen name i do. i know it had to do w/ an ex-g/f, and little else. then the puzzle pieces started coming back and now i remember and it makes me happy.

rad is such an obnoxious word. the most obnoxious potentially. i used to use it with such frequency it was just grating. nothing is more condescending than being told how rad you are. people would ask me for shit and i'd just let them know they were too rad for me. what a great way to dismiss people. i am welcoming the word rad back into my life. and if you hear it out of my mouth, its probably not a good thing.

pretty rad huh.

It's funny b/c its true!
Seriously, this is a true story.

Freshman year of college i went to suny albany and had a very interesting roomate. he would find out all kinds of random information. one day, he found an article about foods altering the smell/taste of bodily excretions, up to and including semen. The list consisted of some well know semen swappers like asparagus, and the not so common pinapple. We ran with pineapple. The room was small, and we lived together a little while, so we got to be fiarly comfortable doing things in eachothers presence, and our girlfrieds didn't seem to mind, so its all good. Okay, so its pineapple nite, and my buddy and I our doing our parts. We both drop hints that this would be an excellent nite for some oral pleasure, and the g/f's seem to agree. Mine finished the job, made a litte joke and all was well. My roomates girlfriend's head swole up like a watermelon, and she had trouble breathing. turns out she was allergic to citrus (pineapple included). So whats the moral of the story? Fuck that, i have no morals, this shit was hilarious. always eat pineapple before getting head, you never know who may be allergic.

Seriously, true story #2
Someone very close to me is a "panty-sniffing, sleep-fucker". So i've heard.

Current Mood: amused

sick days at my new job are called "floaters"
this is hilarious, what makes it funnier is that i actually left a floater at this job one day and got repremanded by the girl who gives us the days off. so when i asked if i could take a floater, she told me we already had this conversation, and i need to start flushing twice. agreed.

whoa. i actually motivated
my bank account is empty. i couldn't be happier. why? because i have boxes. boxes and boxes.

what kinda of boxes could elicit such euphoria, boxes of buttons, wires, compeition switchable joysticks (from 4-8 way, without having to dismount, or even raise the panel), trackballs, hacked keyboard interfaces, and a shitload of MDF. this can only mean one thing, after much procrastination, cabinet construction has began! all i have to do now is complete building my controls, and pick up a pc this week and by next weekend, i'll be gaming like a pro!

the last few weeks, my PC has been humming. downloading everything with the letters M A M E on it, and i have accumulated close to 25G worth of roms. these include all the old classics, and almost every fighting game that succesfully kept me from doing my schoolwork, and pulled me away from a rather successful career as a tournament doubles player. i couldn't be happier. party and pics to follow in the next week or two. i also got all the party favorite sports games from the blitz series, the nba jam series, and as many golden tee roms as have been released.

i've been on a rigorous self taught flash regime for about 2 weeks. i am currently building a galaga-esque clone. so far, so good. here is what i have.

1 - a user controlled ship. its pretty sweet lookin too considering i can't draw a stick figure. so far the ship moves in 4 directions (up, down, left, and right) and can fire generic bullets (there will be bullet upgrades, i am trying to figure a unique combo system to initiate the upgrades rather than just collecting floating objects. probably a system that rewards high hit percentage. the ship also has multiple speeds, which are currently handled by the + and - buttons. i have photoshopped the ship and added motion blurs, these will eventually overlay when reaching higher speeds. i will also be applying the motion blur to the stark backgrounds, and the targets.

2 - a real ugly background. my drawing skills begin and end at the ship. planets, stars, and satellites that resemble colorful turds. (sidenote, check out www.turdwords.com, its brilliant). the background static items move both in front and behind the ship, creating a really weak 3-d effect. very parapa esque in the fact the objects behave as 3-d, even though they are completely 2-d.

3- enemies. or rather one enemy. he looks like a space invader with a moustache. its terrible. cool thing is the spawn at random, then move at random, so u can load up mulitple times and never have the same experience. perhaps i'll have them color in randomly as well.

4 - collision detection engine. it works with test cirlces, and it recognized the bullets, and the ship, but not the targets yet. gotta work on that.

we'll see where it goes, this was just a "fun" exercise to familiarize myself with flash syntax.. not a bad little side project. the goal of completing this "simple" game is to get my skills tuned enough to create a smash tv esque flash game that controlls like a fps with a top down view. this is where all my crazy ideas for combos chains and power ups will really shine. i am also toying with the idea of making a multiplayer flash game, but i need to get a better understanding of how that would work, and i'd need a server to test the code on, we'll see.... ok thats enuf rabbling for one day. meh.

clachet and rank
i need a vacation. i don't really need to go anywhere but i need some time off. from everything. i need to sit undistrubed for like 3 or 4 days and be a vegetable. i need to play games, pickup my guitar, sit around get drunk etc, without my phone ringing, or seeing anyone.

that would be the shit.

never gonna happen tho. but there may be a party friday, so if u've got some free time and want to have a little fun, give a call.

in the mean time, ratchet and clank are keeping me from going nuts. blowing stuff up with large imaginary guns is a ton of fun.
