Procrastination December 10, 2016, 6:06 pm
So today i finally beat DOOM 2 for the first time. I also finally downloaded doombuilder after the millions of times I said I would start mapping. But I put that aside to try out Ancient Aliens (which is great so far), all while I have a major school project due Monday.

But that isnt the topic of this post. I've been procrastinating on when I wanted to make some custom sprites and textures and such for doom, and today is the today i do it. So what program would be best for me to use to make custom doom textures/monsters? (I am far too lazy to google it)

So I went to Wal Mart today and was impressed. December 8, 2016, 8:42 pm
I found this shirt for five dollars. Good game, Walmart. Good game.


Lethal bath December 8, 2016, 11:00 am
So, recently I've been taking a hot bath a couple times a week in order to fall asleep quicker and to improve my bloodstream. It was 40-42C for 20-30 minutes at firrst - hottest and longest I could handle. It worked, and the hotter it was, the better was the effect. Although such temperature didn't feel good, there were no long-time negative effects.
I decided to make it a subtle way of self-torturing - I tried to raise the temperature and stay in the water for longer. I couldn't go beyond 42C because it was too hot for me. Until today. This morning I've made it to a whopping ~45C (~113F). Theoretically it can be lethal for a human, lol. 42C makes me dizzy after ~30 minutes, and here I just got stuck in a loop after closing my eyes while spreading shampoo over my hair. So, I don't know how much time I've spent there, lol. Half of my body didn't feel the temperature at all (it felt like I was touching something metal), and the other half was burning like it was 80C, not 45. A small random movement could make my entire body burn like that, though. The heart beat seemed like it was several times louder than usual. I felt extremely dehydrated, just like during my first rotavirus infection, although I was too lazy to get water after I had got out. My bloodstream was delighted after that.
That was funny, will be trying again.

PS: Sorry for this nonsense crap.

Does anybody else here use a map ring? December 7, 2016, 8:55 pm
I've heard legends that Vela Pax's maps measure well over 10,000 sectors in size and that every start-to-exit session lasts 2-3 hours. This makes me incredibly self-conscious about my map size and I've heard that, rather than attempting to artificially enlarge my maps, I should invest in a map ring to improve map flow, thus making my maps -feel- bigger.

Does anybody else have any experience using map rings, and do you have any advice or warnings? How many units in diameter should my map ring be?


Edited for clarification

Determining appropriate penis length December 7, 2016, 12:53 pm
In addition to using an inefficient inch-by-inch process to design my penis, my penis tend to get bloated to absurd sizes because, since I know where everything is, there is far less exploration factor.

Is there a one-size-fits-all a method for determining how long a penis really needs to be, or is it best to go with an assumption of what routes the partner will or will not immediately see and estimate how long they will take to reach the climax based on that? What are some factors I should take into account besides the possibility of partner petit mort, how an unfamiliar partner might approach certain encounters, what the partner already knows, etc?

kind of a little sort of a bit in a way December 7, 2016, 9:53 am
I've heard that you shouldn't be using phrases like "kind of" or "a bit" too often because they make you sound indecisive and maybe also afraid of voicing your real thoughts (so you're softening every comment with these words that make everything more vague and maybe also make you less responsible for what you're saying?). But I don't know, I think I rarely have, like, rock solid opinions on things. Usually everything is kind of mixed, I see various ways of thinking about the same things and nothing seems 100% good or 100% bad. So I feel like these "softening" words actually help me express my feelings more clear, they show the gradients or whatever. I dunno. What's your opinion on these words?

Spotify is bae December 7, 2016, 12:06 am
I was a bit skeptical about using Spotify, because it turns out I'm a stupid bitch that even having my Iron Maiden, Metallica, Blitzkrieg, Beatles, Judas Priest CD's I still use(d) youtube to listen to them, knowing that the audio quality is worse, and without wi-fi I couldn't listen to them, refused to play on CD because... I dunno?
Until one crucial day I downloaded Spotify in both my laptop and iPhone...
Knowing that every Beatles album (even the anthology ones) were avaiable to listen, even the LOVE album is there, blew my mind.

The only thing that I disliked about Spotify Free is that you can only play songs randomly, this often sucks when you have 2 songs that blend together, for example: Sgt peppers lonely hearts club band - With a little help from my friends, or The Hellion - Electric eye.
Luckily there is a sale that gives Premium Spotify for 3 months charging you only like 500 CLP (less than a dollar). However, I don't have a credit card so it's game over for me ;( tehee.

oh, and The Beatles' "1" 2015 remaster album has an amazing sound quality my god.

Getting "The Doomguy Reviews" Off the Ground December 6, 2016, 9:03 am
So in the near future, look out for The Doomguy Reviews, where I as the Doomguy will review mods, movies, video games, anime (including hentai), and much more.
Not only that, my adventures will include encounters with a "tormentor" spirit that allows the Doomguy to see demonic influences within people, Rick Taylor from Splatterhouse, Dr. Samuel Hayden, a group of cat girls, other Internet reviewers, and much more.

Any suggestions on what I should review? I'd like to get a head start, and said material can be as off-the-cuff or as coarse you like. I plan on setting up some ground rules on what can be reviewed, but that won't be until much later, so feel free to put here what I can review.

Once the show is officially off the ground, I'll see about posting about it in EE, as said material I plan on reviewing won't just be Doom-themed, but more than likely will be. It's not only for self-promotion, but also a means to get critique on my critiquing, so that I can better my future reviews.

So I turned 33 today and I noticed something. As I get older, there's less that I want to do on my birthday, and less I want for my birthday. When I was younger, I'd have friends over and we'd play video games, order pizza, and generally have fun. And there was always a new game I wanted, or some cool gadget. But now, I'm content with a piece of oatmeal cake and a quiet day all to myself. Parties, having a group of friends over, and getting things just doesn't appeal to me much. I guess it's just part of getting older :^) Anyone else feel this way?

Anyway, my wife and I have been setting up an aquarium for the past few months, and today we went and got some new kuuli loaches for it, so we did go out and do that today. I also got a new piece of jewelry for my industrial piercing.

So... yeah, 33. Maybe I'll make a couple new characters in WoW and get them all up to 33 tonight lol
