What’s up with me?

June 29, 2008

I haven’t posted in a few days, mainly because it’s summer so I’ve been out and about. I’m currently editing my old movie to give it an actual ending, and to tidy it up in some places. The filesize will probably be too big for youtube once I have, so it’ll probably have to be split into parts.

I’m still playing lots of TF2. I’ll probably never start getting the Pyro achievements and weapons; I’m not very good at the class and the weapons just don’t excite me.

I’ll post my movie when it’s all done

That practically unlocked itself!

June 25, 2008

Thanks to a small TF2 patch, the requirements for medics to unlock more equipment was lowered to be in line with the Pyro, which means that I was automatically granted my second weapon, the Kritzkreig. I didn’t get much use out of it yet, because the guy I used it on was an awful shot, but I may see myself switching back to the normal medicgun. Invulnerability seems more charming that lots of damage, because you can never be too sure that someone’ll shoot somebody, whereas they’re likely to get shot at. Only one achievment until I get my super saw!

Behram

June 22, 2008

Okay, a little history lesson, one that caught my eye because it, frighteningly, runs in parallel with a movie that I made. My movie, Confragosus Pannus Oscissor, latin for The Rugged Rag Murderer, was the story of Jack Everyboy, who witnesses a horrific ragging, and vows to catch the killer. Here is the film

So as you can see, The Rugged Rag murderer ragged his victim with a white rag, and then is later seen with a yellow j-cloth.

We now turn to the story of Behram the Thuggee, from India. He was a serial killer who is often said to be the most profilic serial killer in the world, with more than 900 murders under his belt. Wowie

And wouldn’t you know, he is said to use a yellow-and-white hankerchief/cloth. Gee, let’s just call that a, hmm, I don’t know, a rag, maybe?

And look how goddamn rugged he is! My God he\'s evil

I’m just sayin’, it’s rather coincidental. Plus, the rag was called a ruhmal.

Ruhmal, rugged. Hmm, anybody else getting anything there?

TF2 Update

June 19, 2008

My Steam is now updating Team Fortress 2, for all the new stuff they’re putting in. That happens to be the new achievements, maps, bug fixes and, most importantly, the Pyro’s unlockable weapons.

There’s also a small tweak that gives custom death icons for the unlockable weapons, which is cool, and they put in a fix that keeps the achievement box open on the menu after you exit from it, so it will be the same when you press Esc again. That’s very good to hear, because if you’re working hard, trying to get plenty of achievements, it’s annoying that you have to open up the window, and say Medic Achievments Only and then go down through the list. That always bothered me.

I will give you my thoughts on the new Pyro gear, if I see anybody running around with it particularly early on. I bet, like with the Medic’s achievements, we’ll see numerous pyros running around. And I mean numerous

Meet the Sniper

June 17, 2008

The video is now available for download of Steam. I’m getting it right now

EDIT: lol

I’m expecting the Sniper’s unlockable weapons to be: a semi-automatic sniper rifle, though with no charge up to make a shot stronger to compensate for the rate of fire; perhaps a slightly scoped submachine gun or just a stronger one; and a boomerang kukri, which can be thrown and will return to the Sniper, but will be lost if it hits and enemy and isn’t picked up by the thrower.

Pretty ker-azy song by Danny Elfman’s band. I like it, but I do also watch To Catch a Predator religiously

Nothing to Write About

June 12, 2008

I really don’t have anything to write about, so I’ll try to think about stuff.

I took a can of Red Bull from my brother

I’m trying out a Source mod called Infection

I recently bought Red Orchestra, but I haven’t really played enough to give my analysis of it. I’ll just say that it’s very realistic, with you getting killed very easily, but it’s very hard to shoot anyone, so it evens out. There are a lot of hotkeys, and they’re in an unusual layout, for me, so it’s kinda meh. It’s a very good game anyway, except for one map I played. It was just a bunch of tanks over a huge area.

I’ve ordered my copy of Windows Vista Home Premium, after a wonderful trial period. Vista really is quite a good operating system, once running patched up to all its current state.

I got new shorts recently

Putting spaces in between everything you say makes a post look rather long

Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

June 10, 2008

Last night I went and saw Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. It was terrific, better than the first film, and that film was quite good.

Kumar

For those of you who don’t know, it’s about these two stoners, but not Dude Where’s My Car stoners, just guys who happen to smoke weed, and following the events of the first film, attempt to travel to Amsterdam. But things go screwy and they wind up in prison, which they escape from very quickly. For a film rated 16s, it was amazingly lewd. Like, full frontal nudity lewd. I’m not complaining, but I’m just saying. There’s also a load of racist stuff and drug references, but hey, that’s the world we live in today. It was really funny anyway, though my expectations where pretty high anyway. Ha, high. There’s a relevant joke.

My Life Goals

June 9, 2008

Leaving Cert this. College that. Boring Job those. Listen maaaan, I’m not going to conform to the machiiiine dude! I’m going to live my life! Sure, I’m going to do my Leaving Certificate Examinations, and go to College and get a degree. But after that, I won’t be some lowly peon whipped to be a corporate drone. Here’s the skinny on how I’ll do something, which interests me.

I’ll do my Leaving Cert and go to college. Straight up enough. Do some courses, you know the drill.

While in college, I’m going to play Lacrosse, because it’s an uber sport and my brother plays it. Pretty normal, a lot of people play sports.

I’m also going to work as a limo driver on the side. It’s a job, but not everyone does it. It sounds like fun. Wear a black suit, have a hat, drive long cars. My sort of thing.

After college, with all my limo driver money, I’m going to fly to Missoula International Airport, Montana. I’ll find a cozy, quiet little town, probably Moose Town. Not only because of its rad name, but because it’s the sleepy forest community I’m looking for. Also, it’s a little while east of the most astounding place on earth, Boner Knob. Just the fact that a place could be named that proves that there is a God. And just so it’s not a fluke, let’s look at some surrounding areas: Beaver County, Butte, Anaconda, and Big Hole. Oh yes.

The main reason I want to go to a small, mountainous town is to become… a sheriff deputy. I’ll ingrain myself in the small community, marry the fire-chief’s daughter to gain my green card, and then apply to be the Sheriff Deputy. I know everyone says they want to be a police officer, but I really want to be this type of police officer. It’s just so idyllic, you know? It’s just because I watched Walker, Texas Ranger, and Twin Peaks. Moose Town, here I come
