I wasn't really planning on making this blog, but I'm bored and I figured "Ah, what the hell?". And here we are. I guess this is a basic update on the last month of my life. Not a whole hell of a lot happened this past month, save the weather pissing me off to no end :x
Left 4 Dead
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Team America: World Police
As you can no doubt tell, this past month was mostly a film month. I'm big on comedies, and I first got Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express. Tropic Thunder is fantastic, namely for the role of Les Grossman, played by Tom Cruise. If you don't know, it was the most hilarious role in the entire film, where Tom played the foul-mouthed, power-hungry exec Les Grossman. Many a lulz, let me assure you. And of course, Pineapple Express being the best "stoner movie" since Half Baked. As of today, I got the South Park movie and Team America, and I must profess my fondness of the genius that is Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They truly are comedic masterminds in their own right, and such praise for them shant be limited to South Park. Team America is just plain awesome, and the song "America, **** Yeah" is one of the best comedy songs out there.
I haven't found myself too interested in video games lately. It's been a lot of World at War online (Nazi Zombies has gotten old), and more recently, Halo 3 online. I'm not quite as good in Halo 3 as I used to be. But I've improved dramatically in WaW. A shame I don't have many XBL friends who play it, or it'd be more fun (hint, hint, wink, wink).
I guess I should also say a few things regarding the week of celebrity death. First, Ed McMahon. I don't really care about that one (no offense). Then, Farrah Fawcett. That sucks purely because Farrah was damn hot back in the day. Beautiful women like that shouldn't die such a painful death. Then, Michael Jackson's death. This one affects me the most, not because I'm upset over his death (what a shock, an opioid addict dying? :o) but because of the general public's reactions. The very same people who were all gung-ho in calling him a child molester, and a freak, are now the ones who say "RIP MJ" or "He was the best we'll miss him". People are so fickle, and it's little things like that that irritate me. Oh, and lastly, Billy Mays' death. That was a shocker to me, considering it happened a few days after his appearance on Conan O'Brien's talkshow (which as it happens is the only episode I've watched of said show). I liked Billy Mays, he made me laugh with his showmanship and salesman antics. RIP, Billy, RIP.
And...that would be all. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an entire website to ignore. It's GS btw...
