Single Status Update
Actually, that title explains it all.
I now get to officially say that I've been incarcerated in the Illinois Department of Corrections not once, but twice. It's not as bad as it sounds, I'm not a hardened criminal (the first time was for forgery, I stole a check, the second time for intimidation, I got drunk and threatened my friend). It's not fun, and although I'm a reasonably intelligent young man I seem to posses no common sense. Trust me when I say that there is no amount of fun worth being locked up for.
What was really cool though was that the cable provider for the prison had G4, so I was able to stay relatively up to date on the gaming and misc entertainment scene. I'm disappointed that Rage was moved back to next year, although that does give me time to upgrade my computer. I haven't played anything since 2008 (which is the last time I upgraded my computer) so a lot of stuff that's old to you will be new and exciting for me.
So the question I have on my mind is the Black Mesa Source project. It looks really good and I'm looking forward to playing it. I kind of wish there wasn't a copyright issue that prohibited modders from creating more than just the shareware version of Doom. I'm old enough to remember that when Final Doom came out it contained what was originally an independently developed total conversion that Id swept up the day of it's release for commercial purposes. What do you guys think of the project, and do you think Valve is going to do the same? (I'm upset that Portal 2 was pushed back just so they could develop it for the PS3).
Anyway, it's great to be back. I plan on spending lots of time playing with Doom again (yes, I know my first question wasn't even Doom related, but I'm keeping up on that) and re immersing myself back into the community.
Happy 4th of July!

Haha, I need to see that movie.
The Greatest Prison Story Ever
I really enjoyed that and I have no idea why. Oddly enough, if prison had been like that I would've enjoyed it more. Keep me on my toes, ya know? Doing nothing but playing cards and watching TV all day sucks after about a week.
I have no common sense either and I live in Illinois too...
However, I've never gone to jail or been arrested.
Well, try not to. It's no fun. Oddly enough, there are a lot of lawyers and parole officers I've talked to that have said my county (Pike County, which is comprised of a few very small rural towns) has the most corrupt judicial system in the state. How we beat Cook county (Chicago) I'll never know.
