WABAM! UPDATE!!!!!… ?

Where do I begin. It’s been a while and a half since I even looked at this. Life’s been a little busy. I think what happened after the last update was my car, the POS Peugeot, it’s transmission locked up while I was driving. It just froze, right there in the middle of the road. Since it was locked up I couldn’t push it off of the road. It took two other guys stopping to help rock it out of its jam and then it ran perfectly fine. WTF?!

Two or three days later I tried to get a new car. I researched. I oogled at cars I couldn’t afford and eventually found a nice ’95 Nissan Altima in Salem for $3000. Applied for three loans, all three declined. Boom. Dead in the water. So much for that, eh?

Thanksgiving was fun. Got up to have breakfast with my father. He lives at his parents house(how wierd would that be?). So my sister and I stuck around until people started showing up for the feast. We ate some. Laughed alot… then head over home where mom made us more food. Three meals… I was stuffed to the brim.

Friday night went to Jesse’s to hang out with his peeps. They did lots of fun things. Watch Equilibrium. OMG! Awsome movie that I never heard of! I liked it enough to go out and buy it the next day.

Here’s the primis if you care: There’s a third world war, someone got it in their heads that emotion is the cause for these wars because it causes hate, greed, anger, so on. So in an effort to supress emotion they must also shun things that are good. Love, art, music, they wear gloves on their hands so as not to actually touch anything, they have white paper over their windows so they can’t see the sun rise or the city, they take this injected drug that supresses emotional extremetys. There are those the resist this movement; art lovers, feeling people of the world, hide away and are hunted down by the government like people with a deadly disease. The main character(s) of the movie are Clerics, a tranch coat toteing elite fighter for the government that can efficiantly, calmly without emotion, clear a room of resistance with martial art style gun slinging(at least as good as Matrix 1). Speaking of Matrix; Christian Bale’s performance made me realise how poorly Kianu Reeves expresses emotion. lol.

After the movie we sported some DDR action(I mainly watched), I had tickle fights with Amy, someone I’ve only talked to three times. Eventually people started to leave, those who stayed got our tetris on. I forget what else happened… but I was up until 5… I woke up at 8 the next day. Yeah… Monster energy drink is your friend.

Later THAT evening we went to see Alexander. Don’t do as we did. Horrible movie. I wont go into my reasons, don’t want to put too much of a negative vibe on someone looking forward to the flick. But yeah… I’m usually a very easy person to please when it comes to movies. I nearly walked out of this one. Three hours of almost complete nothing. The only saving grace is that Angelina Jolie(with a russian accent! wtf? lol) and Val Kilmer play pretty good roles. I liked their scenes the best out of the entire movie.

We went to Sheries and ate and talked and so on. Then people went their own way.

Sunday night we watched some Star Trek. Then Desprate House Wives came on… Jesse likes that show for some reason. I’d never seen it, so I thought I’d give it a chance. Sigh… I don’t understand what is appealing about the show, asside from some attractive middle aged women. Oh well, no harm done. Then we watched Star Gate… and finally did the tetris thing again. Very addictive, tetris. Who would think that such a simple game could keep us entertained for a whole 4 hours?

That’s all I’m saying for now… until next time.

Uggghhh….

Sometimes I hate computers. Wasted 2 hours of my life tweaking and poking this stupid ECS motherboard… nothing special, just getting windows to work properly. For some stupid reason it doesn’t like the drivers and Windows 98 is too primative to be able to actually run a search for them. Windows XP is so much nicer for doing that kind of thing, at least it’s able to make a guess as to what it needs drivers FOR!

Anyway, I have a much more interesting project ahead of me… I’m making a Linux file server because I want to prove how much of an uber nerd I am. On top of that I’m going to try getting it to boot with a SCSI hard drive I salvaged from an old macintosh. It’ll have 3 CD-Roms, and likely 6 hard drives if the power supply can take it. They’re small hard drives I’ve had sitting around for the past few years… but it’ll still be a impressive display of cables inside the case. It will be far less frustrating than dealing with this ECS board. It’s so much worse when you know what you’re doing but stuff still refuses to work… good thing those computer parts were free.

Good Morning Neva Land

Yesterday was a day at work. People came in, I helped them as best as I could, and people left. After work I went to see Incredibles with Jess. Not to be confused with Jessica or Jesse. Jessica is my sister. Jesse is a guy. Jess is Jessica that I call Jess because I know too many people with names that sound similar so any defination between them label-wise makes it easier for people to know who I’m talking about without haveing to explain it to them every time… just once. Hopefully. Anyway, The Incredibles was a very good movie, I thought. Action. Adventure. Charecters struggling with their family and who they are, and nice happy ending. I enjoyed the plot and found it all very well thought out, as I find Pixar movies normaly are. Jess wasn’t so impressed… but she tends to get a gut feeling in her persona and once it’s there it doesn’t like to stray. For this movie the baby wierded her out and that’s all she talks about even though it was 5 seconds of the hour and 45 minute movie.

Back to the plot thing, because it’s something to talk about. While watching Pirates of the Carribean I realised that what truely makes any form of entertainment great are the writers. Pirates is the most fun I’ve seen a movie since The Princess Bride. Those are the kinds of movies I see over and over. The ones that use cleaver and witty banter effortlessly as they interweave plots on top of plots. Mmm… nothing as tastey as a movie that intregues interest and makes you think, laugh, and go ohhh and ahh at the same time. 🙂

Hello Hawaii

No, I’m not on Hawaii. I’m actually not evern thinking of Hawaii. Umm… not much to update about. I joined OkCupid because me cousin told me I should. I took some of their tests… aparently I’m a Boy Next Door, 33% Slut, and a Socialist. lol, tests are always fun.
