I feel really bad.

My cousin Roberto, who lives in Italy, just messaged me for the first time on MSN, and I missed it. He's offline now. I missed it because I was having a stupid argument with my mom about the renovation of our basement.

anyways....I feel bad for one other reason. Back in January Roberto attached a request to the end of one of his mother's emails to my mother. He asked me if I could send him Dragonball Z in English, so he can better learn the language. I happily agreed and stated I would update him on my progress.

Now, I said this thinking that my father's promise of a new computer sometime soon would be fulfilled. Three months later, and I'm even further from being able to fulfill my own promise.

See, I need about 30 gigabytes of hard drive space (by comparison, my laptop only has a 30 gig hard drive), and at the time of Roberto's request, I had enough space (about 2/3 gigs) that I would be able to download DBZ, burn it to CDs, delete it, and repeat. Not ideal, but it would have worked.

Now, I must stick with my first plan. I need a computer with at least 30 gigs of free space, and a DVD burner.

I feel so incredibly bad about leading Roberto along that I will be infinitely grateful to whomever can assist me here.

As a given, I will provide all blank DVDs, all bandwidth, and all snacks/meals....I just really need a hand here.

I've been angry lately and I've lashed out at a couple of people, and I don't like that. I'm sorry if anybody has been ruffled by it.

It stands that there are reasons for my anger, though. I may not have a job or go to school, but I do a lot, and I always make sure everyone's doing well when they're in my immediate presence.

I don't like how that's been abused. That's all I'll say on that for now.

Something (loosely) related to that is Facebook. I understand that just about everybody is 'on' that now. I myself got an invite from one Brad Legree, a person I haven't seen or spoken to in well over a year (and I mean well over). I also hear various reports from everybody that "so-and-so added me to Facebook...", the next words in that sentence being how you've had no contact with them for years.

That should be enough reason for me not to go on that site. More reason would be I'm tired of talking to people I don't know or barely know. Obviously, that's an ignorant thing to say, but what I mean is I don't like going through the process of getting to know someone when I'll have little contact with them anyways.

I quit MSN for a reason: it turned me into a ZOMBIE. sitting at a fucking computer typing out a conversation to someone IS NOT SOCIALIZING. I still enjoy the group convos that I get to have on occasion, but other than that....it's just gonna kill me.

Anyways, I understand that everyone is on Facebook now, and as a result nobody's on Livejournal. No problemo. I just hope I don't hear anyone saying "livejournal's dead" because it's the community that's needed to keep it alive. Having said that....Livejournal IS dead (at least for most of our group), and I'm going to have to find a new place to blog. In fact, I'll probably start two - a political blog and a video gaming blog. i'll write my personal crap in here.

...none of what I just wrote made much sense, but all this post really needs to be summed up by is this: I thought all the bullshit ended a year ago, but it looks like it's back. I'm getting too old for this.

The USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) is going to be decommissioned TOMORROW. I just learned about this now. It's one of only two remaining conventionally-powered aircraft carriers, the other being the USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63), scheduled for decommissioning next year. All other carriers operated by the US Navy are nuclear-powered, with the designation CVN.

I am not angry. I was yesterday, but it has waned to a mild annoyance.

I know I don't have the same attitude towards conventions as everyone else. I know that, in comparison, I'm something of a buzzkill. I can accept that.

I also know that any human attempt to keep from losing track of my friends at a convention is ultimately in vain. I accept that as well, and that is why I use communications technology to counter that.

Now, There is one thing I cannot accept, and that is a LACK OF COMMUNICATION.

Some people's cell phone's did not have minutes or were left behind, and that is perfectly fine.

What is not fine, is not clearly stating to everyone "My cell phone is ______". Some people did that, some didn't. Also, an explanation would be nice, because sometimes, someone might just be able to remedy whatever problem you have, or improvise a solution.

Kenney...Collapse )

Also, It would be nice if, at the next post-con dinner discussion, we could ALL have it instead of things being decided while everyone's spread about the con.

I was just reading about stuff on IGN when I saw this:

From now on we all need copyright lawyers.  First thing on the list has to be "show me your dick".  the second (unfortunately), should be everything related to pat moffat.  we should do a movie on him some day.  it would be like napoleon dynamite, but GOOD with lasting appeal.

Oh and Ken Kalvaitas needs to like...quintuple-copyright "excuse me sir, do you have the time?!"  that's probably the best thing anyone i know has ever thought of.  classic.

The Police are going to be at the ACC on July 22, and I think we should all go!  Tickets range between 60 bucks and 425 bucks, but I think we can work something out!

For upcoming stuff, Flogging Molly is at the Opera House on March 6th, tickets are 22.50.
Public Enemy is at the Docks on Marth 9th, $25 (come on, guys, FIGHT THE POWER!)
Meat Loaf is at the Hummingb- you know what, maybe I'll just put up the link for ALL upcoming concerts.


Though I really think we should see 'Grand Theft Bus' at Rivoli on March 16th ($10), because that's just a cool name for a band.  Plus I just checked them out on Wikipedia and it sounds like it would be an enjoyable concert for everyone.

just so you guys know, this is the only time my house has been actually FREE for just hanging out and no business, in the last SIX MONTHS. just so you know.

i'm simply baffled. somewhat disappointed, but mostly baffled.

i'm angry at myself for being angry...for being angry at whoever proposed going to niagara. i don't even care that nobody called me for two hours.

i'm just angry that it seems we can't even enjoy each other's company anymore.

that, as friends, we constantly gawk at how little there is to do in this town.

i had a conversation recently with someone about how we're always playing games, never doing enough things, never going places.

well, i'll say this: There's a Time for Everything. There's a Time to go out with your Friends, and have a few drinks, and meet People. There's also a time to Relax, sit back, Talk, and play some video games with your Friends.

tonight, was one of the latter.

so...that's why it's disappointing when it feels like we're being split apart. that's why it's disappointing when some things don't seem good enough anymore.

and that's why it's disappointing when it seems like none of us are striving to follow our dreams.

there's a world out there that we're all missing. but there's also a world at home that's being neglected. we've lost our balance as a group, and we're drowning.

Where's the fucking life preserver?

...yes, there is a distinct murk to life these days. It smells somewhat metallic, with a tinge of cinnamon and turpentine.

Look, things aren't Just and they never have been. That's fine, I can accept that, that's life (as they say). But it's not acceptable to me that it be left at that, and now let's go and have some okonomi-yaki. No, that's not how this works, people.

That's just not how it fucking works. Now, if someone would stand up and say something, or someone sit down and shut up, we'd be getting somewhere. But that's not gonna happen either.

So. We clearly have a problem. No more ranting. No more expressions of anger. No more tears. The summation of human Reason would agree, that That's Enough. The mildly annoyed British man would ask "Are you quite finished?".

No more tantrums. This noise has been persisting for eons, but the rise to a crescendo is only recent. Old blood boils fast, as new blood comes to a simmer.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." - Edward Burke
"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." - Winston Churchill

There are no more heroes, there are no more Men of Honour, there are no more rules, no more realpolitik, no more feints within a feint, no more duchys, no more baronys, no more old world, no more new world, no more Power.

assymmetric warfare is obselete, victory is dead.
only Justice can revive her now.

justice will prevail if all do what in their hearts they deeply yearn for. The only course is that of the course itself. The Journey.

The basest, cruellest, most fundamentally utilitarian methods must be used now. Yet it must stay as complicated as possible, with as much thought required as building a nuclear reactor from scratch. Else I fear society's descent into madness.

Trouble is upon us, the game is afoot. no one can help us now.

and my Mood, you might wonder? Optimistic. For my will is that of a Human's. And, except God Himself, no will is more powerful than a Human being's.

Some of you may know that In my childhood, even up to my early teens, I was a massive LEGO lover. Everytime I saw a LEGOMANIA! commercial I'd get chills. And I still love the stuff, despite Consoles having become my toys in recent years, and firearms also becoming on of my main interests in the last few months. On that note, some of you may know my affection (okay...most geek's affection) for Heckler und Koch. Well, I was just looking at the Wikipedia page on LEGO and...oh hell, just look at it:

Yah. Those skillz...they're so 1337 it's 5k4Ry 1337.

In a November 19, 2006 BBC Sunday AM interview, when asked whether there is any hope left for a clear military victory in Iraq, Henry Kissinger said, "If you mean by 'military victory' an Iraqi Government that can be established and whose writ runs across the whole country, that gets the civil war under control and sectarian violence under control in a time period that the political processes of the democracies will support, I don't believe that is possible... I think we have to redefine the course. But I don't believe that the alternative is between military victory as it had been defined previously, or total withdrawal."

Perhaps I am the only one who is stricken by this notion, but does it not seem like he has a general idea of what can be done?

And while I really do hate to say this, it is somewhat to the point: Damascus and Tehran, anyone? Talks with the regional powers are inevitable, but the sooner, the more face can be saved.

Sigh. If only Iran and Syria weren't being run by a punchline from Friends with a head swollen twice the size of Saddam's, and a 6-foot inhuman monstrosity with a sloped chin (or lack thereof) so steep it could be classified double-black-diamond.
If only.

Having heard in the past couple of weeks that Jordan plans to pursue a Nuclear program, it seems that not all is lost. Why? Because Jordan's King Abdullah II, who announced the plans, hates America and the West so little, that he was schooled there, loves Star Trek, and appeared on an Episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Leave it to Gene Roddenberry to save the Middle East.

What I'm really getting at here, is that if someone knows of a way to make the situation in Iraq just a teensy bit less deadly and explosive, they should seriously consider making that course of action known to the general public. Not the current administration, because they're likely not to listen.

Oh, and Mr. Ahmadinejad, I'm sure your country deserves heaps of recognition and acknowledgment (heaps, I say!) with regards to its status as a regional power, but with reference to the Status Quo in the world, you ain't got none commin. The facts are, if you've developed or tried to develop nukes after the 1970s, you're considered a "Rogue State". Especially if you say or harbour people who say "death to America!". Actually, I'm almost convinced that if Israel just came out and said "we've got nukes" (finally screw the innuendo and foreplay), that the US would be pretty damn pissed at them, too. No 'Rogue State' crap, but certainly something.

Anyways, hopefully there will be some new diplomatic overtures over there, and soon.

Those Conservative attack ads just crack me up. I mean, they're good, but they're funny too. I like how they're also indirectly making Ignatieff look like more of a leader than Dion (though he takes a million years to finish a sentence).

Having one of these would probably make me jealous of myself.
And this is just really cool.

But for practicality's sake, I would really want one of these the most.

Some random facts about Jack Bauer:

1. If you wake up in the morning, it's because Jack Bauer spared your life.
2. If Jack Bauer was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and Nina Meyers, and he had a gun with 2 bullets, he'd shoot Nina twice.
3. Upon hearing that he was played by Kiefer Sutherland, Jack Bauer killed Sutherland. Jack Bauer gets played by no man.
4. Jack Bauer's favorite color is severe terror alert red. His second favorite color is violet, but just because it sounds like violent.
5. Jack Bauer once forgot where he put his keys. He then spent the next half-hour torturing himself until he gave up the location of the keys.
6. Jack Bauer got Helen Keller to talk.
7. Jack Bauer killed 93 people in just 4 days time. Wait, that is a real fact.
8. Jack Bauer was never addicted to heroin. Heroin was addicted to Jack Bauer.
9. 1.6 billion Chinese are angry with Jack Bauer. Sounds like a fair fight.
The Truth continues...Collapse )

I'm really starting to get impatient.

While I don't want to blow up again like I did almost a year ago, I can't guarantee my calm if things don't start getting in gear.

1. We only have 3 months until Anime North. I said it while I was EWG, and I'll say it now - not taking advantage of the post-CN lul is unwise. Since the idea for the project was formulated during that time, it doesn't apply here, but we're not exactly taking the most advantage of the time we have NOW, either.

2. This Comic Den thing isn't going to get off the ground, if we don't get it off the ground within the next week. I was worried about this before, and a talk with my father this morning confirmed it. And I am not one who likes to tread water, let alone go down with a sinking ship still in drydock.

3. Right now is a perfect example of group confusion and failure to communicate. I've been making calls since 7, and now it's 9:30, and I'm still sitting at home doing nothing. Among hanging out and socializing, there were important things I wanted to talk about, mainly to do with the above.

i wonder if it would be worthwhile to put "Watch Dr. WHO in its entirety" on my list of life goals...

...probably not.

anyways, i propose a gentlemanly duel between the following titles and art (not the games themselves):
