I've stumbled upon something amazing!


Simply ask or state anything and click "Think about it!" and you'll see it work it's magic. Kinda scary that it's a robot and it can think like that...

This blog is starting to turn into a God damn live journal. I'll be damned if I do that garbage again!

Going forward this will be a solely a blog to provide you, the viewers, with your geek-fix.


We have a new contender for the "amazing knife kill" video from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Here is the previous:


They are both impressive. I have to side with the new one solely because the knife bounces.

On the other hand, the original IS the game winning kill. You decide!

Still have a bunch of invites to Google Wave post a comment in you would like an invite.

Christmas has passed yet again, I got a new watch, yaay. That's about all to report.

oh and THIS couldn't be more true

Thankfully I finished my shopping today. I gotta get my car fixed this week, I'm so glad I am getting 40 hours for the next couple weeks, the timing is perfect since I really need the money.

Not much else to say, I just wanted to update this blog with an accurate music list of what I have and what I am looking for. Comment is your selling any of those! =D

.................................OH HI.

Let me just start off by saying I will be fucked by the long dick of economics tomorrow. I am preparing for the worst, this exam is going to be brutal. Tactical Nuke IS an option.

It seems my blog has attracted some attention, my peers have been commenting on its content, and that just makes me feel good. One day who knows, maybe I'll be one of those epic blogs that has like a billion viewers a day. Well not a billion. ALOT OK?

I can't wait for the semester to be over, one more week then its 40 hours from work and hopefully social life in between, and by social life I really mean spend time with Amber because things are just going swell right now. I'm happier than I've ever been previously and I just think I'm willing to do anything for this one. I hope to God the feelings are somewhat mutual.

1/2 of my Christmas shopping is done.

Got a rice cooker for my folks, I'm actually really surprised that we already didn't have one of these, being a family that really enjoys rice as a side dish. I know my dad will especially like this because he loves being experimental with his food and cooking. I'm going to pick up a coffee maker for Stephanie and Adrian, I know they don't make coffee often, but they don't have one in their condo, and you always want a coffee maker in case you have company right? I still don't have a clue what to get Lisa and Jay (open for suggestions here readers) and I picked up a CD for Sable.

As for myself, I am not looking for anything in particular this year, couple CDs I am interested in, and maybe a new Watch, thats about it. Nothing fancy. This may be random but if your down for it, a new muffler would be nice, since my Civics muffler is about to bite the dust, my car is so bloody loud now, it's truly a Civic I guess.

Anywho, I better get some rest before this exam.

Success!

Finally! I got a copy of "Yours as fast as Mine" on my computer. I gotta say, these guys got some talent, anyone reading this please check them out! Worth a listen!! "The Main Drag"


For the record. Nothing is going to happy on 2012. Seriously, get over it.

Next week is my last week at the Pickering EB Games on Brock Road. Since the manager at the Whitby North store quit they decided to put Paul there, and, in turn, Paul is taking me with him, I am really excited about this, the staff I am going to be working with are all familiar faces and the store is alot more fast paced and busy. This is definitely a step forward. Not to mention that it's extremely close to my house, the money I'm going to save on gas and food from eating out will give me enough to join extreme fitness up the road. Stoked!


Thats all for now.

Work work work. That's all I do these days.

I work for a video game store and that's probley the least thing I do. Play video games. I find time to play MW2 maybe once or twice a week after work or between school breaks from work. Meh, life isn't about video games. It's about cake. Delicious cake. Too bad the cakes a lie, and it REALLY actually about Pie. We all know Pie is greater than cake.

Communication presentation today... Totally winging it. I love just going up there and bullshitting my way to get a good mark. Thank god I have golden street smarts. Without em I don't think I'd get anywhere in this world. Remember kids, it's not "What you know" it's "Who you know" that counts. All that "if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything" is a load of garbage. "if you know somebody upstairs, your set."

Know what I hate? People who meddle in my affairs!! Arrrggh!!

What the hell. Hopefully this works out. [Are you happy now Krista-Lee? Lawls]

Semester 1 is wrapping up. Here's to hoping all goes well.

Socially Unproductive

Oh man. So much has happened since my last post!

Work has been going in the right direction for once. Everyone is doing their part and the store is rising in rankings, eventually we'll be a high-volume store. We would already be one if previous managers weren't clinically retarded.


So Modern Warfare 2 is out. DID YOU BUY IT? Game did $310 Million in 24 hours. That's more than any movie, music, or game ever released. Gotta hand it to Infinity Ward, they set the bar with Call of Duty 4. Then met and raised it with Modern Warfare 2. The story line continues pretty much right where you left off. Multiplayer is for the most part the same with some fine tuning, I really like how they made Perks this time around so versitile. It's actually a hard decsion when you have to choose your perks, where in COD4 it was pretty much: Claymores/Stopping Power(or UAV Jammer)/Last Stand. Each perk is very useful and unique!

Pretty boring weekend just passed. Everybody bails! Friday I was supposed go to a Friend's birthday party in Hamilton. Didn't pan out because I got called into doing some extra work stuff. Kinda sucks because I haven't seen Hope since high school. I need to make it up to her, go there and see her, maybe when Christmas break hits. Saturday I was supposed to take Amber out for drinks and some other fun stuff. Her story changed within a day, kinda sketchy. I mean how do you get "last minute" birthday plans. Birthday plans are usually made well in advance! Oh well, too bad so sad. Went out for a beer with Cort yesterday, got caught up in a lot of stuff, personal and work stuff. Funny guy, really need to hang out with him more often.

So here's something crazy. Krista-Lee, the girl I really liked and hung out with frequently during the Summer, who started to like me back but was in a relationship so decided to shut me out. Decided to give me a shout the other night. Yes, she broke up with her boyfriend. Honestly though, those feelings aren't really there like they used to be. Although I want to be her friend again, we definitely had some good times.

Vinny and Dayla are having relationship issues, and I'm stuck in the middle. It's so frustrating to be in the middle, seriously. I hear the same damn story twice. I just really wish they would patch things up. They're meant for each other but if it's going to work, they're both going to have to make some changes if they want it to last.

Here's to hoping I win the lottery or Jingle Bell rock tickets!

Been so confused lately...

Midterms are over this week. (thank god) I did horrible on Economics. Inventory and Computers shouldn't be an issue and I have yet to do Purchasing (tomorrow) and Communications (Friday). Seeing how Purchasing is all true/false and multiple choice guess and our proff gave us all the answers to study with!

Last week we're the Casby awards and I want to upload pictures but I'm still waiting on a few from the digital camera I used, as soon as I get those pictures I'll upload everything, promise!

As for the awards, they we're really fun. Good sound by the Arkells, ill Scarlet, Metic, Mother Mother, and The Stills. All my style of music so I really enjoyed myself. The Koolhaus was a pretty neat place too, however I really regret predrinking somewhere earlier, the drinks we're very overpriced. Almost $8 for a CAN of Molsen Canadian, crazy. Overall, really good turn out.

On a side note, I'm getting really good at sniping in Call of Duty, just getting more and more stoked for the sequel next month. Apparently everyone's going to a club tonight with a 80s & 90s theme. I'm still not sure if I'm going.

Audible Sigh.

So much going on in November. People's Birthdays, Modern Warfare 2, New Weezer Album, New Foo Fighters Album. Looking forward to all of it!

Yes. Weddings.

Stephanie and Adrian are officially hitched!! As of right now they are in Hawaii enjoying they're honeymoon together.

I has a really great time, I'd have to say the most fun was the receiving line at the beginning, doing shots with everyone that was attending left me a little
woozy afterward, but I pulled through, didn't even get sick or anything.

Video attached is the dove release they did after the ceremony. Pretty neat, never seen one of those up close.

video

Watched
Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 yesterday, and seriously, if you haven't seen those movies, you must watch them back to back. I never had that luxury when I watched them in theater's... I really need to go see Zombie Land, and I want to take Marita to see Where the Wild Things are, apparently it's a really good redux of the original book, which is shocking because most remakes are absolute shit these days.

Casbys this week. Thursday!!! So stoked. Gonna try and get there as early as possible, need to get some sweet seats.

Really don't got much else to report. That's it for now.

Oh one more thing, don't give people your folded/crumpled money, it's so damn rude. So annoying...

Wedding Bells

Rehearsal dinner tonight.

Went to the church first, and I gotta say, whatever happened to just getting married in a Catholic church? Seriously, there's so many stupid rules and regulations. For example, one of Adrian's relatives was going to say a passage from the bible, but one of the church...staff? Found out that they weren't baptized in a Catholic church and dis-allowed her to read the passage. That's some bullshit right there, I mean, come on really? I got really annoyed when the staff kept saying it was sacred, and it would ruin the sanctity of the church. Get real lady, you know what destroys the sanctity of the church? Suggesting what people should donate.

Anyway, we went to "
Fish House" after for dinner with the bride and grooms parents, and the bridle party. Really cool place if your into seafood, it was a set menu, I was tempted to get ribs, but I figured, when do I really get the opportunity to have Halibut anyway?

The bridle party was given gifts after dinner, every Groomsman got the same thing. A tie, and cuff-links, however the cuffs had our initials engraved in them. Pretty sweet deal.


Anywho, Stats test tomorrow, gotta get some rest!

Here's the video I took when Bookie got the call from Dave Grohl. Look forward to them being back!

Title self-explanatory.

Yesterday was interesting. Went to BP with Marita. We got "pizza bread" for an appetizer, now really? Why don't they just call that shit "Cheese Pizza" because that's what it was. $6.99 for a personal cheese pizza for an appetizer, don't get me wrong, it we amazing. Just stupid that they have to beef up the title like that.

We had to park in one of the handy Green P parking garages, however on the way out instead of having to put my ticket in the pay terminal, there was a ticket there already in the slot, and when I grabbed it the intercom turned on and a guy had asked if we had gone to see a movie.

After a LONG pause I responded "...............uh.....yes." and he let us go for free! Which is awesome because that parking can add up quick.

After helping Dayla with her homework we headed back to Marita's... she doesn't have a lobby key, nobody was showing up and about 20 minutes passed by. I was contemplating just dialing a random number as saying "Hey, it's me" and naturally the door will just open. At the 30 minute mark I just looked at the door and thought to myself "eh what the heck" pulled on the handle, and it was OPEN. It was open the WHOLE DAMN TIME.

You'd be surprised how many people still buy and trade games near holidays... Seriously people! Don't you have families?! Go spend time with them!

Gonna start buying a lottery ticket every week. Sick and tired of this non-disgustingly rich lifestyle. The funny thing is, I would so keep my job at EB Games as a part time associate. Take a chopper to work every day.

Less than a week until the wedding, I gotta get my suit at some point this week!

Them BAILING Vultures

So Thursday night I get a call, it ended up being
Bookie from 102.1 The Edge. On Wednesday I had been bored out of my mind in Inventory class and I decided to post on the petition to bring "Them Crooked Vultures" to the 102.1 The Edge studio at 228 Yonge.

Anywho, Bookie calls me and tells me that he picked 20 of the thousands that posted to come down to the studio and be there for the interview. Naturally I was stoked, unfortunately my significant other was working and one of my best friends was on the other side of the country... Thankfully I got a friend, Mike, who was equally stoked to accompany me on this adventure.

Took us about an hour to get there, 30 minutes of driving, 30 minutes of parking hunting. Got there really early, so we killed some time at the Eaton Centre. Visited the EB there, brought back some memories of the OC days. Also check out "Mind Games" which is an amazing store, so many snazzy things in there. We hit up the Jack Astors at Dundas square... and I didn't even know they HAD vanilla coke, where the hell have I been the last few years?!

So we lined up at the studio entrance around 4:30, we didn't even get in until 6:00, but it's ok, we got amazing spots to watch. At 6:30, Bookie announces that they are behind schedule and wanted to eat before coming down to the studio, naturally everyone was cool with it. 7:00 rolls around, and Dave Grohl calls the studio and says that they we're "unaware" that today was Canadian Thanksgiving and had been stuck in traffic coming from Detroit.

So they didn't even show! However, they promised they would be back and Bookie said he would call the same 20 people back. On the flip side I got Casby Awards tickets that I am taking Marita to. Should be fun!
