I miss blogging

I was just randomly looking over some of my old blog posts from like... five years ago. I won't lie, I miss those days.

So what do I do nowadays? I attend a university, party occasionally, get black-out wasted every so often, have unprotected sex as a result.

I'm just kidding about that last part. Of course I use protection, come on. :lol:

Random, but for those who've kept up with my blog over the years and vice versa, how have you been? What's new in your life?

Michael Myers

The dude would be so easy to kill. Here's some real talk for all you illiterate folks...

When Michael Myers is walking and the camera is on him, he walks like he's in a trance or something. Hands down, knife protruding, shoulders slumped. Like he doesn't take pride in his work... Like he's ashamed of his job as mass murderer and "living" legend. Or maybe he just don't give a f***?

So yeah, he's walking all slow when the camera is on him, right? The second that camera pans away, HE IS THE FASTEST MUTHAF***ER ON THE PLANET. He catches up to that person running for his life... and he's standing there waiting for him!
If only he could talk. He'd have some pretty cool one-liners in that situation, like "Dinner's cold!" and then proceed to stab the f*** out of the poor bastard.

So my theory is, the camera is Michael Myers' kryptonite. He kinda walks like he's being contained; like something is preventing him from engaging in his Olympic-esque sprints that we all know he's capable of. It's the camera!

So if I ever came across Michael Myers in real life... Well I'd pull out my smartphone and begin recording the damn psycho. I just hope my battery doesn't run out, being a Droid and all, it's a realistic possibility. But anyway, then I'd lure him to Best Buy or some other store that sells massive amounts of video capture equipment, and surround him with video cameras. Then I'd buy a shotgun and a machete, blast his head off, chop him into little pieces, and disperse the chunks of devilry all over the ocean.

NO MORE MICHAEL MYERS!

The end.

Is Miley Cyrus 18 Yet?

No one is gonna read this so I figured I'd just start rambling mad thoughts I have in my mind

My girlfriend and I broke up a few months back. Actually she broke up with me, but that's not the point. I've gotten over it and got my **** wet since then, so it's all good. Yeah, maybe it's not the best way to get over someone, but maybe that's why guys crave sex more than women. They're too proud to admit they can be hurt too, so instead of seeking love, they just try screwing anything with two legs. That way, there are no emotions shared, and it feels really good at the same time. Win, win. Actually, guys crave sex more because of the testosterone... Ehhhh oh well.

I just ate a Kit Kat bar. I had to re-look at the wrapper to see how it was spelled. I was gonna put "KitCat."

Umm, the only video game I've even payed any sort of attention to whatsoever in the last year is Fifa 11. It's damn fun. I don't play online though. I think once my Xbox Live subscription expires I'm going to leave it alone. At least until Halo 4. (I never even finished Reach or Black Ops and feel as if I wasted tons of money).

Yesterday I worked a 13 hour shift. Gotta admit, I was exhausted. But overtime is looming, and I need a new car. My jeep is old, worn out, and starting to lose my interest. I want a Jaguar... A man can dream.

Music? Well I listen to lots of stuff now. Anything from Between the Buried and Me to Tech N9ne to God is an Astronaut to The Dear Hunter to Deftones to The Human Abstract to 2Pac to Chevelle to Jedi Mind Tricks to Machine Head to Opeth to Immortal Technique. It's safe to say, I'm a big fan of music. I have over 20,000 songs on my harddrive and that number constantly grows. I haven't listened to all of them... But I will... Eventually. Also, since I live in the Midwest, I rarely get a chance to see concerts with good artists. Last one I went to was a year ago; Creed and Skillet. Pretty cool concert, actually, though I'm not a fan of either band.

Hmmm what else, what else...

I recently went to an amusement park up in Minneapolis. Pretty fun, but nothing compared to Magic Mountain out in Southern California. God I miss that place. Someday I'll travel there again. The other day me and some friends did a fewChinese fire drills in my car. Now that's hella fun. People would honk at us whilst laughing... It feels cool to give the citizens a good show in the middle of their boring, daily routine.

So yeah, life's pretty good.

Peace.

Compilations: Top 10 of 2006

Yeah, well, I'm getting really lazy about blogging. So lazy, in fact, that I didn't even both to look at how long it's been since my last entry (I'm sure it's been a few months). I've been really digressing from my main passion that prompted my arrival to this site in the first place: video games. But if there's one thing media-related I love more than video games, it's movies. I've been busy at it looking through some of my movie compilations and discovered just how many great movies there were in 2006... and 2007... and ESPECIALLY 2008.

I felt I could express this in a top ten over the course of the next month. I still have some catching up to do for 2009, but you should see a list of all four years (2006-2009) coming soon. And yeah, I know, who makes top ten lists anymore? As-a-matter-of-factly, I do.

10. Apocalypto
Apocalypto
Release: December 8, 2006

Before Edge of Darkness it seemed Mel Gibson had vanished from the leading role. He filled the gap with Apocalypto. A subtitle-centred world full of humor, drama, and atmosphere.

9. V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta
Release: March 17, 2006

Edgier than any super-hero movie, V for Vendetta is a gem amongst action dramas, with a rich story and lively characters. Hugo Weaving plays a masterful performance as V.

8. Pursuit of Happyness
Pursuit of Happyness
Release: December 15, 2006

I couldn't remember the last time I came close to crying while watchinga movie until I saw The Pursuit of Happyness while browsing through the TV guide the other day. Still to this day one of the most powerful movies I've ever seen.

7. Casino Royale
Casino Royale
Release: November 17, 2006

Better Bond than Brosnan? Once I saw Quantom of Solace I had to shake my head, but Casino Royale turned me into a Daniel Craig fan. A seemingly inexperience yet badass Bond would be tough to handle, yet Craig hit the nail on the head nigh perfectly.

6. Blood Diamond
Blood Diamond
Release: December 8, 2006

There's an imperfect balance between the conditions of life and politics here, but what it lacks in stability it makes up for in character. DiCaprio and Connelly are spectacular together. And the struggles of the violent blood diamond trading are ever-so apparent.

5. Babel
Babel
Release: October 27, 2006

If there was one multi-plot movie that I could watch over and over again, it would be Babel. The sheer balance of the movie's ever thickening plots are undeniably brilliant. Over the last four years, this is the one movie that I believe everyone should see at least once.

4. The Departed
The Departed
Release: October 6, 2006

Obviously not Scorsese's best film, but still ranks high amonst crime/dramas in this time period. It's bleak story is so gritty and tiresome. And yet when the rat's finally sniff each other out, the convolution of the plot twists even further. The Departed is a film under its own genre.

3. Pan's Labyrinth
Pan's Labyrinth
Release: December 29, 2006

Just barely squeaking out the list solely because of its release date, Pan's Labyrinth is a movie that belongs on everyone's list, for those who have seen it. It's quite possibly the most imaginative yet engrossing movie I've ever seen. The entire way through an enjoyable experience.

2. Children of Men
Children of Men
Release: December 25, 2006

I thought long and hard between the top two.Children of Men is a sample movie of the year for me, and the real thing for many others. The lack of excitement early on barely grazes your memory in retrospect of the film as a whole. Children of Men might be the most interesting movie of the decade.

1. The Prestige
The Prestige
Release: October 20, 2006

Perhaps not your typical number one, The Prestige is probably the most visionary film I've seen. It's a combination of perfect performances between Bale and Jackman and perfect direction by Nolan. Maybe the only near-perfect film I watched in the last four years.

Well, that's it for 2006. Feel free to compare/contrast. Here is the entire filmography of 2006. Please comment below and I hope to see you for the 2007 countdown in the coming days.

Threequels

Modern Warfare 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassin's Creed II.

All three games are better than their previous counterparts. They've all embellished in some way. It's especially nice for me, someone who's busy as hell with school and work, to finally get off the gaming shniiide and play something other than Halo and Guitar Hero. I know there were many other great games out there this year--I didn't necessarily have to wait for these three. But I'm glad I did.

I just finished the campaign in MW2 this morning. Spectacular ending, in my opinion. It no doubt left the door open for a Modern Warfare 3. The first few missions were great, then it kind of dragged on several missions after that. But, towards the end, things got crazy.
And while campaign was good, online play is even better. I'm not that great--still a little rusty from playing Halo online. Yeah, I'll try to reload but I'll throw a grenade instead. That sort of thing. I'm really digging the new kill streaks and weapons. Also, I find the maps to be even better than in the first game.
I haven't played much of it, but from what I have, Special Ops is a really sweet mode. I'm glad they've included some old missions from the first Modern Warfare.

Left 4 Dead 2 is much of the same as the first game, but it has a significant addition that I love to death: the katana. It's pretty much the only weapon I use. Yeah, I know, it's not the ideal weapon against chargers or boomers, but I find myself using it a good 95% of the time. As always, it's a blast to play with friends. I just can't get over how damn fast the zombies are. One minute it's quiet, and the next thing you know... You can't move because there's a horde of them down your pants. It's insane.

Last, and certainly not least, Assassin's Creed II. My bold prediction for game of the year (maybe a little too bold) is holding up very nicely. It's the game the first installment should've been. No repetition, and no frustration. It was too hard to do missions in the first game with guards all over you. Now there's a desynchronization thing that stops your mission automatically to let you try again. The buttons are a little stiff, and the story is still ambiguous, but it's an all around amazing game.

So for those of you on my Xbox LIVE friend list, you'll be seeing me playing mostly these three games for quite a while. It should hold me out until... Ahhh hell, what's the next big blockbuster game coming out? I don't even know.

Me gusta Modern Warfare 2

Yeah, I'm actually going to talk about games. :o

So first off, here's a review I wrote for ODST.

I know, right? First review in quite some time. It's short, but to the point. And that's how I think any player review should be. No need to evaluate every little thing while pretending you're a professional (yes... that's what I did :lol: )

But hey, all that aside, I like me some Modern Warfare 2. I played a couple campaign missions, but I also played a crap load of multiplayer with some friends. I'm starting to feel my passion rekindling before me. I played the first Modern Warfare religiously a couple years ago, playing online at every chance I could get. Then, for some abrupt reason, I got into Halo 3, and THAT was all I played for about six months... Until today.

Oh, and I reserved Left 4 Dead 2 and Assassin's Creed II. :D

Tomorrow I'm going out to eat and Friday 2012 comes out. It's gonna be a good couple weeks ahead of me.

So... This Paranormal Activity movie...

I watched it a couple nights ago. However, it was eclipsed by something even crazier that went on later after the movie. A friend of mine who was driving home ahead of me hit this huge ass deer and totally wiped away his windshield. I vividly remember seeing the deer flying through the air like a helicopter. :lol:

But now that I'm back to earth, I remember some of the stuff from the movie. The ratio is not so much the two or three scary scenes the movie actually had to anything else it broadcasted. It's more like the two or three scary scenes versus making fun of the rest of the movie. It was unintentionally funny. And the boyfriend is, at times, intentionally funny. But when it tries to be serious, the only thing my friends and I could do was find ways to laugh and joke about the script.

No, it wasn't a bad script; just very vulnerable to joking. There's only two main characters, both of which are portrayed with the first person camera angle. That makes you feel like you're actually apart of the movie, which incidently makes it funny. I know it sounds weird, but it really was difficult to take the movie seriously. That is... until the end, which was pretty freaky.

I would recommend it to anyone because, trying not to give too much away, it could happen to anyone.

What's next on my list? Maybe The Fourth Kind. Or The Men Who Stare At Goats. But I'm really looking forward to 2012 and Sherlock Holmes.
