Stuck in a home with (family / related) occupants. March 1, 2015, 5:06 pm
Like the title says, I currently reside in a rented home with another relative of mine, whom I share bills / rent / other home payments with. Unfortunately, there are also blood-related relatives living in the same area, though they do little to pull their own weight (lightly putting it).

The other two said relatives / occupants are on some form of disability [some sort of anger issue, I gather] , and currently rely on aforementioned relative (stepmother) of mine as their payee for said funds. However, this hasn't stopped the two of them from working before.

As of right now;

While I don't do it myself nor have a problem with such, they smoke pot on a daily basis, but it's at the point where a good majority of the house believes its gotten to the abusive level.

I've learned from monitoring the ongoings in the house that there's indeed been -selling- of this going on within the home as well. Something me and the aforementioned stepmother have both tried to prevent. There are people coming in as late as 12AM - 3AM knocking on the basement windows to get their supply, basically.

The time-span mentioned is ALSO when people think it's 'okay' to sneak alcohol into the house and have their own parties in the basement. Even on days where some younger siblings need to sleep for school.

These two abuse myself, the stepmother, and the younger siblings in the house on a near-daily basis, mainly in the form of verbal abuse or otherwise messing with their heads. With one such occupant, this has gotten to the violent level. THIS, however, is frequent. Also results in a lot of broken items in the house.

With that said, I can say that we have, indeed, tried to come up with several ways for them to otherwise get out on their own, however all of our efforts so far are turning up with zip.

They refuse to find work. When pressured and DO find one, they can't hold it for longer than a month or two. This is usually by their own doing.

They refuse to look into other places to live, and ignore any comments about cheaper properties being found nearby.

They hold their disability check over my stepmother's head and claims she's using it for her own needs, however this is untrue as well. Their checks are being used to help them and the house, as well as going for food and home bills.

If threatened with police being called, they tell my stepmother (their mother) that they'll plant weed in her bedroom, and tell the cops to investigate. THIS, or they claim they'll commit suicide. This, again, has happened on more than one occasion. (somehow.) Now.. They -were- on the lease for the previous year on this house, I'm not exactly sure if this accounts for anything. Some info would be GREATLY appreciated here.

Right now, I'm completely clueless on where to go from here. The stepmother's too stubborn to actually CALL the police or anyone else worth calling / informing of the situation, so I'd figured that maybe a majority / crowd might be enough to help figure out where we need to go.

EDIT: Pardon for the weird formatting. Not too used to making a text post on here.

EDIT II: I really wish more of my posts could be about general forum / Doom-related stuff. But it seems like most of the decent advice I get comes from here.

Little Caesar's Signshaker.. Any Way to make it less boring? September 12, 2013, 7:51 pm
So.. I'm starting on a job as one of those sign-shakers for one of the Little Caesar's Pizza stores near here.

I'll be standing out there for a good 4 hours each day, and I need a little something to help me pass the time while I stand there.. holding that sign.

I'd wanted to take a set of headphones with me and have some fun with it, but I'm not too sure if that's acceptable there.

(I've heard of people doing this.. not sure if they were necessarily -allowed- to do this.)

But yeah.. all I've got going for me right now is music.

Any suggestions are welcome..

Weird shit happening again. July 27, 2013, 1:19 am
Reinstalled Windows 7 on my laptop for the umpteenth time this year, due to a recurring problem that shows up after some time of using my Wacom tablet / USB mouse / laptop touchpad:

1. Touchpad is barely responsive
2. Mouse has its red light, but flickers and shuts off every now and then.
3. When I go to use my tablet, even while holding the pen in place, the on-screen cursor goes on a shaking fit on the screen. Quite annoying when I'm going to draw straight lines. =/

I have a Dell Latitude D520 laptop at the moment, not exactly the best thing on Earth. But, since I don't have too much in funds coming in either way, I have to stick with it for now.

Has anyone else had this problem? I've tried looking it up, but most of the sites I go to provide me with stupid "Turn off / Turn back on" and "Unplug / plug back in" -esque answers.

More laptop problems.. May 23, 2013, 12:29 pm
I finally got myself another laptop from a buddy of mine, and so far, despite its age, it runs circles around the last (HP Pavilion DV9700) one I had. (This one is a Dell Latitude D520.)

As of earlier this afternoon, I've been having a bit of trouble with the touchpad for this thing. The thing barely responds to pressure, and when it does work, the movement is sluggish / jittery / for some reason, 'clicks' stuff without having me click it.

I've tried to clean it off, reinstall drivers, et cedera. I'm not sure if there's something I'm doing wrong about fixing the problem, but it's certainly a head-scratcher for me.

If anyone could help me out with this, it'd be much appreciated. (Also running WinXP 32-bit)

Today marks my 20th anniversary of circling the sun. March 8, 2013, 6:25 am
So, as it turns out, it's my birthday today. I should really get on the ball about posting here more often..

However, that seems to be hard when there's nothing really worthwhile I can post. **' (Other than work on the Doom RPG.)

Perhaps I can make up some map stuff, improve a bit on that.

Hm... Seems I'm wanting to give more, rather than receive, considering the fact about today..

Battery Going Kaput... January 9, 2013, 3:57 pm
So, I've got this new HP Pavilion dv9000 laptop from a buddy of mine, who'd said the only problem with it is the fact that the laptop screen doesn't want to stay open.

For the past few weeks, I've worked on a Doom RPG project I'd planned to have another update posted up about, but it seems that when I'm on the move, my laptop can't hold a charge worth anything.

Every time I supposedly charge my laptop, and take it up to the park, the battery charge jumps from 100% to 67%... within 5 minutes. After that, it steadily drains.

I've already decided to get a new battery, but I'm not exactly sure if this was the way to go, or if there was something else wrong with it...

Metal Gathering in Louisville... May 25, 2012, 6:59 am
Yup, I know it's been a while since I'd posted anything related to Doom or the RPG, and today won't be the day either, I'm afraid.

Today is the day I tell about an event that I'm hosting a few days from now here in my town. It seems that Kentucky is almost practically devoid of metal and such, and filled with the stuff called "Rap" and "Pop" and stuff like that.

This sunday, however, I'm bringin' about my buddies and such to a local metal music gathering and such. I'm hoping the turnout'll be good.

There's supposed to be people bringin' their music shit like guitars, drums,and such. And hopefully we don't get our asses arrested for this. (We shouldn't, as it's a PUBLIC park, and there'll most likely be less than 50 people coming.)

People'll be bringin' Metal / Classic Rock CDs and such, and someone's bringing a good supply of food and a karaoke machine for 'Metal-oke' or whats-it-called.

...So, are there any other Doomers here in Louisville / Kentucky that would be able to make it to this thing? (Camp Taylor Park)

Or, jus' post here if ye'd wanna share comments and shit. Here's a mockup pic I did for the Hell of it:



I did the artwork, someone else came up with the name of the event.

General Rainbow Bacon's Hellish Imp Fireballs March 19, 2012, 2:15 pm
Well. I've just received a large package of rather spicy peanuts from General Rainbow Bacon (DoomHero85). I was told they'd be spicy, just not sure how spicy just yet. I'll be taking pictures and posting a YouTube video of my feat with these peanuts.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, is the enemy:



Here are the precautions:


And here is the dumbass who's actually insane enough to try these:



wish me luck, guise.
