The sea is rivaled by the depths of my startling artistic prowess [Dec. 19th, 2006|01:54 am]
Black and white locked
in eternal struggle
crackling in battle, mocked
Upon my T.V.

Sycophant in these halls
Structured with meandering ways
Fired from weathered crawl
Upon my T.V.

Needless impersonal frown
Angred by some pointless pass
Bigot pointing at high renown
Upon my T.V.

Jelothoth is an ibis-headed all loving trickster deity of knowledge.

In the begining, some 12 billion years ago Jelothoth won our portion of chaos in a game of pogs.

This is the basis of my newfound religion and if you argue how it is nonsense I will become very miffed and claim you to be a closed minded troglodyte and insult your ability to meet women.

You will also be living with your mother.

Wow, this is some tough shit [Nov. 10th, 2006|10:55 pm]
Allow me just a little ego for just a moment here, I need it. I'll be honest, I think I'm pretty good at conveying a message. Every instructor I've had to write for has thought that same thing. This latest thing on my plate, however, is something above what I think I'm capable of. I'm loath to admit it, but I can't write a pleasent haiku in Spanish to save my life.


un libro es bien
porque es no en francés
es muy difícil

That's the best I could come up with, clearly I'm in some dire straits now. I guess I have plenty of time, however, seeing as how the tiny poem is due on Tuesday. Still, I stand by my original assumption, this is the most difficult thing I've ever done.

Not sure how it happened. could have been from the standing out in the rain watching my buddy play football or the three weeks straight of getting four hours of sleep every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and going to class during cold season. Yeah, not sure about that one. Finally hung up the "Dark Side of the Moon" poster I bought seven weeks ago, though. Looks nice if I do say so myself.

Shake yo butt, not too hard [Sep. 7th, 2006|10:35 pm]

Second week of classes end tomorrow, I'm ready to be done, yeah. Five relatively easy classes, but a pretty weird schedule. not that, that matters all that much. I'm psyched for far different reasons.

I bought a copy of Guilty Gear X2 #reload off ebay a few weeks ago and it finally arrived in the mail. I'm in love with this game already. The technical depth is just mind blowing. Loops and Roman Cancels, all that stuff. Axl Low has shown himself to be one of my favorites thus far, second only to Baiken. Seriously digging those defensive moves.

Other than that, I finally got around to paying my outstanding with the local public library. Five bucks a year after I gave the book back. Damn you "The Last Command." Anyway, seeing as how I got around to paying up, I picked up "Stranger in a Strange Land" for a second read, it deserves it really.

Seriously, how could Jubal, the most obvious mouthpiece ever, be so goddamn interesting as a character? I'll never know.

Gaming Shit [Aug. 24th, 2006|06:03 pm]
Well, I bought some games about two weeks ago when I got paid for watching high school kids be bored at their scholastic based summer camp. So, anyway, I bought Gun and Half-Life 2 for the Xbox. Played the hell out of both of them, and now I've got no reason to play 'em anymore. They were both over pretty quick, but I can't say I resent their purchase. I guess I'll write a little about each.

Gun: Fantastic, even if the game's mechanics boil down to something akin to an extremely short western themed Grand Theft Auto. The theme is cool, the gameplay is fun while it lasts, and the side missions are at least somewhat interesting. The story and graphics were solid too. Regardless, the game was too short and had quite a list of bugs that hold it back.

Half-Life 2: I loved almost every minute of it. Being Gordon Freeman—the crate pushing, crowbar swinging, MIT doctorate sporting, one man alien/human killing machine—once again just felt right. However, the driving segments got old real quick, and the infuriating ending of Half-Life is back, and it's still just as infuriating as the first time. As an aside, the game looks gorgeous, even on the Xbox.

Yeah, so I'm pretty happy with my games. I'm looking to play through Knights of the Old Republic again, but my aging Xbox just doesn't seem to want to let me. Oh well.

Exit Outside World [Aug. 15th, 2006|11:02 pm]

As I removed myself from the superheated interior of McFarlane Hall at the University of Brockport, I couldn't help but wonder, and simultaneously fear, if it would be for the last time. For one month out of the year I get microscopic taste of living away from home. Wash my laundry, clean my room, do my laundry, and finishing homework early without anyone to force my hand.

See, I never wanted to grow up. I wanted to be young forever. My pleasantly relaxed childhood being the major culprit. The whole idea of getting old just never appealed to me like it does to some. Frustration of becoming an adult was scary. Finding a job, paying bills, starting relationships, buying a television, having kids, ending relationships and so on. Frankly, it's still rather vauge and ominous.

Regardless, I turned around for one last look at my temporary home, and I remembered the time I spent there. One month a year for four years. Good times have been had. It's alright if I never do go back. I've made a mark. took a deep breath of the dry summer air emanating from the brick and concrete. I start walking toward the larger red SUV waiting in the parking lot. Waiting to take me home.
