Holy ****! Haven't done one in a while, so I guess Imight as well start with some video game news. Bought Skyrim and have been playing it here and there. I'm unable to get lots of playing in, due to being busy as hell at work, but damn is it ever killer. I've never played any of the previous, so I'm rather excited about this one, and so far it hasn't let me down. I recently saw Slayer and Rob Zombie in August, and it was awesome. Also got tickets to see Megadeth, Motorhead and Volbeat in February. Must say I'm ******* stoked. Other than that, now that hockey is in full swing, I've got lots to watch on tv. Hoping to see a game this year, but with all the lay offs at work, I've been working lots of overtime. I don't mind it, because it means I get more money, but it's havoc on the social life. Yup, that's the jist of it. Look forward to another update about a year or two down the road.
I know, I don't make many blog posts, so this is a little out of the ordinary. I got off work, and started enjoying a few beers, and decided to make a few witty posts. The first topic I see, has a 1000 posts already! Apparently some mods got banned today. Now, let me start by saying I didn't really know either as a poster or a mod, so I'm indifferent on the matter. However, the uproar is down right astonishing. Many users really seem to be attached to these two. I fear that OT may suffer because of it. At this moment, a handful of users are calling out mods and admin, and I have a feeling that if certain people don't watch what they say, more bans will come. Normally, I don't care when users get banned, but I like the regulars in OT, and it would bea shame if some users that I liked got canned because of their displeasures. Anyways, just thought I'd try and add a little water to the fire under some of you, and to watch what you say. Thoughts? Comments? Concerns? That's my two cents, and although I'm a user that somewhat flies under the radar in OT, maybe some will listen...
Hey, I have just recently started posting in OT again. I'm not here all the time, but I show up every now and then. I'm not sure if it's changed at all, but I still recognize a few posters there. Well, that's about it, I'll see you around.
Hi there. It's no surprise that I'm a fan of metal. I think we should take the time to see what metal bands I'm interested in. Most kids that like metal nowadays are into all the new stuff. Granted, there are some cool new bands out there:Killswitch Engage,Trivium,Lamb of God,HellYeah and a few others that I like. What I'm into, is the older metal. Yea, the old 80s thrash. I'm going to post some videos of some of the bands I like, and you can tell me if you're a fan or not. Lets start things off shall we:
We will start off with some good ol fashioned Suicidal Tendencies with Join the Army.
Lets keep things going with a band called Metal Church. That right, another great band that seems to get lost in the mix These guys rock. Metal Church.
Saxon, no not Saxophone, Saxon. Ya, another great pioneer of metal. These guys have been rocking hard for years. Check out Princess of the Night.
Hey, Germans can play metal with the best of them. Don't believe me? Accept may change your mind. Here's Fast as a Shark.
W.A.S.P Here's a great band that many of you have probably heard of, but haven't really listned to. Here's a song called Animal. There other part of the title I can't put in, but you'll see and hear it in the video.
We will end things with a band called Anthrax. I know what you're saying, "Wait, I've heard of Anthrax." I'm sure you have, but have you heard Anthrax? Yes, Madhouse is a great tune, but they're so much more than that. Check out Caught in a Mosh.
I hope you enjoyed those tracks. If not, then you aren't a metal head. :P Anyways, I just thought I'd inform you guys about the metal of the past, because that is the stuff I enjoy.
Yep, today, February 6th, 2008, marks my 2 year anniversary. It blows me away that I've stuck around these forums for that long. It's odd, because if you knew me in real life, you wouldn't consider me to be the forum type. I've had a blast here on Gamespot, and it's been fun posting and getting to know some of the unique users. My board of choice has always been Off-Topic, but I've posted in many unions before as well. One of those unions that was deleted for some reason, and I never really found out why. 2 years may not sound like a long time, and it really isn't, but for two years to constantly come to a site and post, must mean something...(Can anyone say Tool? :P) Anyways, just thought I'd share this information with you guys. It's not that important, but I hadn't put out a blog in some time, so this seemed appropriate. I'd like to thank all the cool users I've met over this time, and although some of them have been banned, there are still many wicked users kicking around this site. Cheers!
