Raptor's Blog of Rants
... or am I?
It has been about a year and a half since I made my last blog, I really didn't have much to talk about since. I decided to make this since I startedcommenting in ppls blog and getting"wow, i haven't heard from you in a long time" and "i thought you got banned".
Not much has changed since then except that I finallydecided to put upa banner, leveled up some, and got some shinyemblems since then. Feel free to take a quick peek.
Personal life is still the same.Still in college gettin'mesome of thatfancy edumacation (misspelled on purpose). I'm trying to getmy master's degree in computer programming and so far it's within grasp. Just 2 more years and it's mine!
Few weeks ago I decided to take a big risk, I bought a 360 elite (counting down the days until I get the RRoD). No xbl yet but maybe when they release the next sbox I might break down and suscribe to it. Got some good games for it, Assassin's Creed 1, Mass Effect 1, GTA 4, Bioshock, and the two games that came with it (Lego Batman and Pure). Still haven't touched GTA and Bioshock (still wrapped in the plastic).
Well, I guess that's does it. Next blog coming 2 years from now!
Happy Happy Joy Joy, Happy Happy Joy Joy, Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!!
Finally, after weeks of calling countless times to many stores over the past few months, I have tracked down and bought earlier this morning a wii! While keeping my joy and delight to myself as I walked into Target, walked straight to the electronic department, and asking the salesperson for the wii all the while singing the happy happy joy joy song in my head. I also decided to pick up Smash Bros, Star Wars: Republic Commando (PC), and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (PC) while I was there. Unfortunately I am at school right now and my last class doesn't end until 4:45pm! No doubt today is gonna go awfully slow but the wait will be well worth it! Just 5 hours and 47 minutes to go.
Well, that's all. I gotta go, the teacher is looking in my direction probably wondering why I'm typing during one of her boring as hell lectures.
Yesterday (might've been the day before) two local news crews were doing a story about a death not to long ago as a result of a drag race on interstate 10. After they were done filming they decided to have a little friendly race and this is the end result:
It even make it on CNN on the show Anderson Cooper 360 in a segment called "What were they thinking?"
Only in El Paso.
Super Mario Bros., Pokemon, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Silent Hill. All of them games that have been made into movies, now there is one more to add to that list:

Story by CNN
Dallas, TX - He's not exactly a video game MVP, but he wants every school-age client to know about another set of letters, the ABCs.
"He needs to be reading a book. He knows how to play Madden before he knows how to do his ABCs and 123s - that's backwards," Brandon Scott, a game store manager said, of certain customers.
Scott manages a popular Gamestop in South Dallas and started a new policy this summer on his own: no school-age customer can buy a video game unless an adult confirms that the child's getting good grades in school.
Gamestop doesn't endorse or even know about the good-grade rule.
"I'm probably going to get in trouble for this, but to me it's worth it, because the kids understand that somebody cares," he said.
So far, parents and other adults like the concept.
"Well, it makes sense. Why reward a kid with a game when he's not doing good in school," Robert Coulter said.
"I thought at first he was just playing. But it turns out he was serious," one parent said.
Scott has refused about two dozen sales. But he says most of the students come back later, with good grades, to make a purchase.
He's even pledged to buy any video for a student on one condition.
"If you give me straight As with your teachers signature, endorsing it and your parent up here, I'll buy you a brand new game," Scott said.
That is perhaps the worst manager in the history of store managers in my opinion. I wonder what he was smoking when he came up with that ****.
Well today I leveled up to Wicked Sick after about a month gaining 2-3% a day. So far, this is my favorite level.
Resident Evil 4 Bound for the Wii?!?
Yep that's right, Gamespot posted the news early yesterday. What, don't believe me? See for yourself.
Super Paper Mario Marathon
Well, I was watching the live marathon yesterday and it looks pretty damn good. I just hope that it's as good if not better than Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Elementary, my dear Watson. This aspiring detective went above and beyond the line of duty to provide feeback on Scavenator, GameSpot's scavenger hunt game.
I didn't think I was gonna get this emblem cuz to be honest I really didn't provide a deep enough feedback as some of the others. I'm not complaining though.
Want an 60GB Sony PlayStation 3, a pile of games, a Blu-ray Disc and an extra game controller for a mere 99 cents? or would you rather take pity on the poor eBay who - apparently - set his 'Buy Now' price to $0.99 rather than his starting price.
These are the lyrics to a parody of the song Monster Mash.
I was working in the lab late one night
When I heard the gurgle of a waterpipe
So I turned to see my monster in a cloud of smoke
Who said "This **** ain't bad, here, have a toke"
(We smoked some hash) - We smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) - It was his personal stash
(We smoked some hash) - We got completely trashed
(On monster hash) - We smoked some monster hash
As we partied in the castle with the living dead
Mouths were dry and eyes were red
The ghouls and goblins shrieked and screamed
"Won't somebody please pass the Visine"
(They smoked some hash) - They smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) - From Frankie's personal stash
(We smoked some hash) - And they all were smashed
(On monster hash) - They smoked some monster hash
The mummy was toking on a bong
Wolfman said "Don't bogart that, pass it along"
The swamp thing was toasted, rolling on the floor
Laughing hysterically and pleading for more
The scene was rocking as the werewolves moved
To the undead reggae band's dance hall grooves
Meanwhile in the kitchen Frankenstein baked
Some Alice B. Toklas brownies and cakes
(We ate some hash) - We ate some monster hash
(Some monster hash) - It had the graveyard smashed
(We ate some hash) - And we all got trashed
(On monster hash) - We ate some monster hash
The party would have gone on 'til we all passed out
But just then we heard a bloodcurdling shout
"Watch out, beware, cover your necks
Dracula's got the munchies, and he's totally wrecked"
(He smoked some hash) - He smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) - He was completely smashed
(He smoked some hash) - That transylvanian's trashed
(On monster hash) - He smoked some monster hash
Now every night the dead rise up from the grave
To partake in our happening THC rave
For you, the living, this hash was meant, too
When you get to my door just say the Toyes sent you
(We'll smoke some hash) - We'll smoke some monster hash
(Some monster hash) - And we'll all get trashed
(We'll smoke some hash) - From my personal stash
(Of monster hash) - We'll smoke some monster hash
