|I just beat Super Mario Sunshine this week.||January 15, 2008, 1:35 pm|
I was laughing about this game with a friend yesterday because I had beaten it (didn't tell him that) and to be "cool" I told him I never bought it, but I feel so bad after beating it that I tried to convince myself I never played 5 minutes of this excuse for a game. Lying to yourself ain't easy.
So I finally beat this game after throwing the controller in rage trying to control a fucking boat on lava to the "boss battle". somehow, this crystal Mario dude has flooded the town square or something and I have to chase him into his little lair which is conveniently located on the island. in this little platform course is a little boat.
mario has to "row" the boat with the water pump. This wouldn't be so bad if it followed the laws of physics, but this is some super duper magic boat that thinks such laws do not apply to him. After spinning in the water like a fat kid in the pool, I finally make it to the dumbest set of platforms designed to make you tear your hair out. I really enjoy not knowing where the platforms are going to be due to the camera not showing me, and when I do see them, I have no time to grab any. Boy was that fun!!!1
After all that work in the game and all the frustration collecting stupid coins and shit to get some shiny things I am treated to the worst thing I've ever seen in a mario game. Yes, I'm including those CD-i games, This was total bullshit, and also disturbing.
You are treated to a video of Bowser and his son Junior in some sort of.. hot tub. I'm serious. And guess who else is there? Princess You-know-who. Junior apparently was told that Peach was his "mama" and that Mario has kidnapped her. mmkay.
Then I hear this:
Anyway, after seeing this hideous little video (complete with voices, yes, they gave Bowser a voice, and it's apparently in the Japanese version as well) Mario shows up to kick ass as usual. to win the game you must run out to the corners of the tub and ground pound them. That's it. you don't even touch Bowser, you just destroy his jacuzzi. No, I'm not making this shit up.
After you destroy Bowser's Bachelor Pad in the volcano (???), the volcano erupts (or does it fall? I don't really know at this point), taking you and the rest of the crew with it. You land headfirst into the sand, while the little water pump crashes on the shore. mario watches the waterpump device die due to the damage it took and mario CRIES. yes. that's right. he cries over a super soaker. Then again, with the dipshits in the Mushroom Kingdom, that's probably the only real friend he had.
then the place is shiny and happy again blah blah blah.
I think it's over. I was hoping it was over, but nope, one more scene, with Bowser and Bowser Jr. maroon'd on a small island just outside the main one, and the following was said:
Then there's some happy yaay you beat the game kind of cinematics, complete with the FLUDD water pump brought back to life if you collected all the shiny things.
Anyway, Here's to hoping Super Mario Galaxy's ending isn't as stupid. If it is feel free to tell me, so I may stop playing and save myself.
|Weirdest things that happened in 2007 to you||December 26, 2007, 3:04 pm|
Guess I'll start.
Well, the weird thing I saw was my friend's R/C forum. It was spammed to death by the weirdest string of posts I've ever seen.
[B]Hi. Long time reader, first time poster.
I found this in a fitness forum.
A guy, 22, wants to have sex with a girl who's 16. I'm the dad of a 1 year old daughter. I am worried about her enough as it is, but I cant think of how much I'd worry about this if this was my daughter. I'm angry about this guy doing this, am I right to be angry? What would you do if your daughter was in this situation? [/B][/QUOTE]
Now imagine this, posted countless times, in the span of 2 minutes on a forum hosted on a shoddy 1.4 GHz "server" you have set up in your house. The number of new registrations were also through the roof. Edit: I forgot to mention that That "oh shit" feeling was on us both as we watched a once happy server get sick. We couldn't do anything as the exploits poured in also- someone was hell-bent on making that server crash- he must have been some disgruntled kid- the attack came from Russia of all places.
Needless to say, the server has been down since September, and she's reluctant to boot it back up-- and just stay at a free message board service.
I dunno what crackpot is spamming this shit but it has to stop. It's like they target forums at random. So if anybody here owns any forums, or knows admins of forums, put those exact words on a blocklist/instant-ban list if you have (or coded) such a thing and get these morons off your nuts. they are spamtrolls and they must be banned from the internet.
Enough about that, what happened to you guys in 2007 that you could describe as "destiny-changing"?

|Just some random questions from your head.||August 9, 2007, 11:49 am|
Everyone can participate, doesn't really matter. if you can answer some of these, go the fuck ahead, saves me some brainpower. I have to ration that out for school, you know.
How do people in Wisconsin know it's New Years?
Has anyone been injured from a pop-up book?
How does Edward Scissorhands wipe his ass?
If someone owns land, do they own all of it, or just the top part?
Why is there more aluminium in the pop-top of a can than the whole can itself?
Why is a penny worth more than one cent, yet it still is considered as such?
Why do new electronics come with tamperproof screws?
Why were there Y2K compliant flashlights?
I feel better now. feel free to add but don't use the ones off websites, you knuckleheads, make your own!

His name is Bear, and I hope I can handle this little thing.
Original owner did not want. Shame, because he's the best dog I've ever played fetch with. will post more pictures tomorrow when I get him settled in. :/
|People Suck.||July 15, 2007, 11:45 pm|
Another **** sucks series, oh boy.
I just got through hell this week.
One of my parent's friends shot his wife, his kids and himself after losing it all being a "bookie". I knew the kids since they were little (they practically were my brothers) and my parents are devastated. Apparently the guy had been "reported missing" from work for 3 days so they sent a secretary or something to check on him, only to find him dead with his family in the garage. They were trying to get away from him, it seems.
It's weird when people "snap" like that.
On an unrelated note, add that little gem to the fact that some fuckballs have gotten into my university's e-phone directory and have proceeded to troll people randomly, sometimes at 12 at night, and you have got a little fucking hellhole for a week.
I wish people had the decency to be normal human beings but apparently that isn't possible anymore. Apparently calling people while they're asleep and singing Batman to them is where it's at.
I don't mean to sound emo, but, I just have been through some stupid shit lately and this year has already sucked for me (lost my grandmother to a 6 month battle with cancer) and now this. Who else close to me has to die this year? Ugh. Life sure can be weird sometimes.
|Digg sucks. [Web 2.0 rant]||March 23, 2007, 10:28 am|
I have a confession to make.
Sadly, I joined Digg just so I could try to "talk" to the hopeless uninformed people of today and see what they really think.
How dumb I was to think I could sway them.
Slashdot recently posted this article http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/03/22/2121214 which was laughed at in unison there. AS it SHOULD BE, it's blatant FUD through and through.
However, a look at Digg...
(note: I am not responsible for death by laughter)
And suddenly I wonder, "Is Digg just normal everyday people that are hooked on 'Web 2.0' ? Or is this some alternate universe where Windows is the Bees' knees?"
Then there are the "Truthers". Imagine Xdelusion and Nightmare Doom combined -- then multiply the result by a few hundred times, and you get these morons. These dipshits shun all rationality and suck Alex Jones's and Dylan Avery's pole daily . They believe in retarded shit like The New World Order ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Wo...28conspiracy%29) , which makes me wonder if they live in their mother's basement and never go outside (for if they did, they would realise they were full of shit). It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't persist in posting their bile on the site, making my block list 30 miles long.
Maybe I should count my blessings, and thank God it isn't Youtube. http://xkcd.com/c202.html
|Erasers suck.||March 18, 2007, 6:23 pm|
New blog, but it's only to vent my ANGER over the shittiness that are ERASERS.
They suck. seriously.
I recently bought a 500 pack of Papermate American pencils (should last my entire life, right?) and I've used about 20 of them trying to have an eraser that doesn't:
smudge like crazy
leave a pink mark on my paper.
you'd think after 100+ years of pencils, There would be an eraser that was actually worth a shit to use.
I mean, it's ridiculous! I've seen pencils with erasers on them that have turned brown and cracked and they're only 5 years old!
Saying that, the best erasers I have found are the cheapest ones. the ones you find in those teacher books (Oriental Trading Catalogue). the wood casings for the pencils suck, the lead snaps easily, but the erasers... damn. they're awesome and they don't smudge at all.
So, what are your opinions on rubbers?
|FSCKED||December 12, 2006, 5:02 am|
I was fscked today.
I was booting ubuntu and got a nice kernel panic. So I boot the LiveCD, and check the disk, which means slamming the y key for 4 hours...
I wouldn't be doing this had I been suckered into trying ubuntu, and was told of the coolness of it... yeah, I decided to write my final in english on the laptop I installed it on, so I'm up all night working on a week's worth of work.
Moral: Linux is too hardcore for me. I shall now return under my DRM labelled Windows, at least I can salvage it somewhat. :(
