I'm back. December 18, 2014, 12:20 pm
What did I miss?

OMG Teddy! (SFW) December 9, 2014, 1:08 am
Just adopted a four-month-old kitten called Teddy.


Oi, I'm Stupid December 7, 2014, 7:22 pm
Or maybe just arrogant, or lazy, or just very unwilling. I was signing up for a Graphic Design program at my Tech College, and I needed to go through an evaluation session first. There were a number of dates available, but now I waited too long because the dates, at the time, were too far off and I wasn't sure how I should schedule them. I can call, but it may be too late, and I'll have to wait another I think. God, I'm always some lazy idiot in these cases, and this really blows. Fuckin' A. /rant

Brutal Wolfenstein 3D December 5, 2014, 10:33 am
As many will know, is the father of wolfenstein 3d fps and in his honor were made many mod for doom, as Wolfendoom of Laz Rojas. However, no one has thought of this; Brutal Wolfenstein. Since I discovered Brutal Doom I began to hope that someone did the same thing for Wolfenstein 3D, but nothing. So, after a bit 'of time to learn a bit' language for the decorated, the mapinfo and with handling the Wad and the sprites, I created my dream: Brutal Wolfenstein 3D.

Using the maps of Laz Rojas, the game offers gameplay very similar to that of Brutal Doom but, in part, different.
The whole arsenal has been redone, renovating the original weapons and putting new as colt.45, the thompson and Panzershreck, findable only on Spear of Destiny.I stronger enemies and dangerous, with a large amount of blood, make the gameplay of Wolfenstein 3D difficult and modern.

Bose® QuietComfort® 25® headphones®®®®®®®® December 2, 2014, 8:45 pm
Worth buying for $300? I really need a pair of decent, comfortable (key word) headphones and I really love Bose®'s noise canceling stuff. Has anyone here bought a pair? What do you think?

a rant about stereotypes and xenophobia. November 30, 2014, 5:08 pm
I browse a lot of forums on a lot of sites, and lately i have noticed a rising amount of xenophobia, which comes down to
'fear or dislike for people from other countries', and the abundance of stereotypes. The last one is not new, but
the combination of xenophobic dislike combined with stereotypes still makes me laugh my ass of in 2014 ;

All rusians are racist.
All the french eat frogs, play soccer.
All the germans are hitler nazies in disguise.
All the americans are fat and dumb.
All the english are ugly.
All the dutch smoke weed and act off.

Most users of these stereotypes in xenophobic conditions on any forum seem to be egocentric odd posters whom think
they have things to prove, or just plain trolls who do not think about it and just act out of fun...

It is the year 2014, any country well enough to house 4 airports has many nationalities hopping around since the 80's,
and television is a global ordeal... I am starting to wonder if selective news reports to trash peoples views on other
countries are creating a new wave of stereotype reinforcement...

I need some help here November 26, 2014, 6:58 pm
I need some help winning a local DJ contest. Long story short, I've been spinning in tiny no name venues for really shitty promoters most of my DJ life, and a huge opportunity finally has opened up for me. I need as many likes as possible on the following facebook post in order to win this thing, and that's why I posting this here and asking for help.

There's a guy right now with over 2600 likes whose post was 'hidden' because I didn't have see all stories enabled and I'm a little burnt by that slippery sorta crap. I'm sick of my hobby outside of Doom being relegated to inane events with zero turnout run by total buttholes of people, so if I can win this thing it would really mean the world to me right now :)

Death November 26, 2014, 4:23 pm
Just wanted to write about something that I've been mulling over for the past several days. And that is death.
Now death is something not many people want to talk or even think about. It's understandable - it is the end of a person's life (I realize all things die in some way, shape or form but I will keep this centered on us humans). I often think of my own impending death, and it is not the thought of my biological form dying that scares me, it's quite honestly I don't know HOW I will die. I could be hit by a semi going 100 mph down the freeway. I could die silently in my sleep. There are quite a few ways to die naturally, and many more where you die unnaturally. The point is, I don't know. And unless you've been suffering through, say, cancer and are approaching your final hurrah, or you have a death wish of some kind and are contemplating suicide, you won't know until it's that final moment.
It should also be said that even if you did live to say four or five hundred years, eventually your life would come to an end.
Your mortal being will, at some point, die. It is something you should be getting ready for because ever since the day you were born, no, since you were conceived up til this point in what we call time, you've been heading towards death.
And then for the hard question.
And after that...? What?
What happens when we die?
Lots of people think that when you die, that's it, game over, you're done, finished and gone. You'll pass on into an eternity of dreamless sleep and your corpse will rot into the ground to become one with the Earth once more. Lots of others tell of how they died in some way, left their body and passed over into the Great Beyond. The fact of the matter is that only after you die will you know for sure what will happen when you die. For the time being, here in this mortal body on planet Earth, all I can do is wonder about it.
I think of death as an experience, much like being born and being alive are experiences.
Now, personally I would be delighted and in a state of euphoria if when I died and headed towards that fabled light that was a place like Paradise waiting on me. I'd be moved beyond words. But the thing is - I don't KNOW. I don't know for a fact that anything happens when you die.
And that, more than the fact of my approaching death itself, and exactly how I'm going to die, is what scares me. Then too, death has to be looked at like this: suppose that when you die, that's all there is afterwards - nothingness, not that that can imagined by the human mind. Then there would be nothing to be afraid of - you'd dead and that's it. Now, then, if there WAS something after death, some kind of afterlife, who is to say what that afterlife would be like for YOU, you yourself? Would be it good, as in Paradise? Would be it awful, terrible, as in some version of Hell? Once again, all the people who have died and (for the sake of argument) have indeed passed over the Great Divide haven't come back to fill us in.
Your thoughts?

So.. some pictures I took on my second visit to South Africa's largest nature reserve November 25, 2014, 9:19 pm

It was quite a lot of effort and a pain sorting through 1000+ photos to find the best 100 so I hope atleast someone finds some enjoyment looking at the pictures. :P

Be sure to witness my near death experience (okay maybe a bit of an over exaggeration) with an elephant that charged towards our car! :)
