There has to be one out there, but I know for a fact that it isn't ApolloBraden. He has no friends, both on Gamespot and at school, so you may want to add him.Go track him.
I agree with a lot of others in that Gamespot has gotten a lot stricter recently. I'm pretty sure that it wasn't actually a conscious decision made by the site, but rather a unanimous desire for power among the mods. I lost an entire level for something that was actually nothing, then got moderated for reporting a mod that was bragging about how many posts he had deleted. Lame...
I have some mixed feelings over the ban on fads over at OT. On one hand, it's good that we won't have a page full of "There's a (insert Star Wars character) in front of my house" threads, but the mods went too far banning some of the more harmless expressions. One of the first times this happened was a while ago when "buttsecks" was banned. In retrospect, that seemed somewhat justified. "Do a barrel roll" can sometimes get annoying, but is it so bad that you would really want to see someone suspended for it?
Okay, it wasn't that exciting, but it was pretty good. This is my senior year, and I've got a few good classes. I'm also Sr. Class President and that's going to be awesome.
Edit: It's not that awesome
How was your first day of school? If it hasn't happened already, when do you have to go back? What grade are you in? What games are you interested in this fall? Find out all this and more in the comments section...
Finally. This is one of my greater Gamespot achievements in recent history. I'm not sure how I actually levelled up since I was gone all weekend long. I think my brother may have been on my Gamespot account while I was gone... Oh well. Flagstaff was nice. The weather up there is perfect, which is the complete opposite of the rest of Arizona. It made me look forward to moving East even more. I also changed my sig again. Midnight Brown is awesome. I think they'll be the subject of Part 2.
Also, Dirty Dancing is one of the most overrated movies ever. Why do people even like it? The acting is horrible, the plot is ridiculous, and the girl isn't very attractive. You Got Served was better, and that movie's a pile of crap.
A lot of you know me from the forums, but the forums can sometimes be a very impersonal experience. I decided to start a sort of feature in my blog that would allow me to reveal more about myself and encourage others to do the same. I will start off this week by talking about one of my favorite tv shows and why I like to watch it.
Late Night With Conan O'Brien
Conan O'Brien. Funniest man alive? Maybe. Sexiest man alive? Definitely. Although, I'm a straight male, there's something about Conan that makes me watch his show every night. This can sometimes be problematic since it makes waking up for school a bit difficult, but I I'll be changing that anytime soon. My first introduction to Late Night was back in the early 2000's when Comedy Central still showed Conan and SNL reruns. I would watch SNL every day after school and then quickly change the channel afterwards when Conan's intro sequence began to play. One day, however, fate intervened.
As I sat there watching Conan ride his bike through New York, I frantically searched for the remote. Since I couldn't find it, I had no other choice than to keep watching. I was surprised at how funny his show really was. His interaction with Max, his "zany, off the wall comedy skits," and talent around guests are what have kept me watching him for several years.
This one was pretty simple. Anybody could have guessed what my favorite show is, but I wanted to go into why that is. Let me know what your favorite show is and maybe even leave a suggestion for the subject of the next part.
My first ever job interview is tomorrow. I didn't want a job, but this past E3 made me realize that there's no way I would ever be able to afford all the games I want to play without one. I don't particularly care for Gamestop employees, but that's where the interview is. Judging from the caliber of other people they've hired before, I see no reason why I wouldn't get it. Well, I guess there is the fact that I have no previous experience and I will be going back to school in a couple of weeks, but I hope they can see past that.
In other news, an empty amusement park is the most depressing sight ever.
You can't argue with popular opinion.
