I went to a renaissance faire. My first. 'Twas fun. Lots and lots of fun. There were people eating fire. And pointy things. And wenches. Lots and lots of wenches.
A very fun day indeed. ^_^

EDIT: Now that I'm not ass-tired, I'll provide a few more details.

When we arrived, there was a joust about to go down. Many insults were hurled. One of the knights kicked the other in the stones. The crowds called for death. Huzzah.
There were pointy-shinies of all sorts for sale. Not just swords, but maces, flails, axes, even chainmail suits. There were also magnificently-made staves, horns, fancy garments, even a shop selling misclanious *ahem* leather goods. >_>
The highlight of the whole thing would have to be the show that went on shortly before we buggered off. A big performance where they did various things with fire. Eating it, dancing with it, lighting various extremeties on it, juggling flaming sticks, and of course, my favorate, a swordfight with flaming swords. Yee, fire!

And did I mention the wenches?
gg_crono: (Default)
Yeah, I've done this before, and I'm doing it again. It's fun! If you don't like it, don't play!, wait, come back, I didn't mean it!


So anyway. Yeah. If I got one, that came up last time I played this, I'm going to skip it.


Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post thefirst line(s) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. If the name of the song is in the first line,post the first line that does not contain the song's name. (Note this)
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.

I just got back from a weekend in New York City with the parents. Was pretty cool. Got to hook up with some friends, finally got to see Nintendo World (and got a bitchin' T-shirt there), and good times were had by all. Huzzah.

I'd say more, but there's not much to be said, really. I'm just glad to be home and immoble at the moment.

Also, expect various memes soon if I don't find something to retain my attention.

I just finished Proven Guilty, Book 8 of The Dresden Files.

Holy CRAP. That...was goooood. *lights a cigarette*

It was worth every minute of the wait. I want to worship the ground that Jim Butcher walks on. That was just phenominal.

Now to wait for Book 9. ^_^

This is the blog of a friend of mine, in which he's going to blab about games and stuff. He's going to start a potcast too, as well. He's just starting as-is, but he's a cool guy so I have no doubt it'll be cool. If you like what you see, plug it to you friends.

For those so incliend, his own LJ can be seen here.

EDIT: I've just been informed that they've bought a domain. You'll be able to find them here:

It's not active yet, but it should be by tommorow evening.

Step 1: Put iTunes/your music program of choice on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.

Hey, lookie here. I have an LJ. Whodathunkit?!?

Yeah, yeah, I know, don't update this thing often. I should really try and change that, but I always say that. Still, I'll try and think of some way to entertain my adoring crowds.

Do any of y'alls who might be reading this journal play Kingdom of Loathing?

(Beacause I can't figure out how to make a bloody hyperlink: )

Those of you who know me well probobly know that I'm thoroughly addicted. Those of you who don't know me...well, why the hell are you reading this?!

I jest, of course. Anyone who is so inclined to do so may read ths. It's a free internet.

In any case, anyone who needs something to eat a decent amount of free time and/or their soul should give KoL a try. My in-game name is Mellowcorks. Look me up and maybe I'll give you a treat. ;)

As all my friends know, I use AIM. AIM gives me a popup notification when I get an e-mail that doesn't go away until I check my e-mail.

Problem is, it gives me the notification for my old AOL e-mail adress, which I never use. I tried setting it to my GMail adress, it tells me that the request could not be processed, or something like that.

Could anyone tell me, if not how to set it to my gmail adress, then at least how to turn the notifications off alltogether?

Anyone here familiar with the song Summerbaby, by Polaris? Those who are know it was a key feature of one of the best episodes of that classic of the early 90s, The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Quite possibly the best thing Nickelodeon had ever done. They've really done downhill lately, but let's not get into that.

I found an MP3 of the song recently. When I started listening to it - and I swear this is true - I started sobbing like an onion peeler. This is what we call getting a Boot To The Headâ„¢ from nostalgia. I really need to get the DVD box set one of these days. And the soundtrack, too.

Speaking of Nickelodean, my dear friend [ profile] dark_puck showed me that not EVERYTHING they've produced recently sucked. She hooked me up with a few episodes of Danny Phantom, and I was pleasantly suprised by it. This and Avatar are really the only decent shows on, though, and have been for awhile. Several friends of mine go on and on singing the praises of Invader Zim but I've never actually seen this one, so I can't say.

In closing, I'll see about updating this dealie a little more often. I don't have interesting thoughts as often as most, but dammit, I'm trying.

The following is an actual conversation I just had with a friend of mine. I'm "G". The friend is "V". The names have been changed to protect the - with much want for a better term - innocent.

G: You!
V: Me?
G: Yes, you!
V: Couldn't Be!
G: Then who?!
V: Umm... Crazy Bob?
G: Damn that Crazy Bob!
G: ...wait, didn't he, like, move away after 5th grade?
V: No, that was Crazy ROB.
G: Oooooooooooh.
V: Crazy Bob got killed in 'Nam back in the SEVENTH grade, remember?
G: Ah, right, right.
G: Damn good guy, him.
G: He never say that grizzly coming.
V: Yeah. Istill have that sandwich he gave me. I keep it close to em at all times.
G: I've still got the scar on my left buttock from that caper with the ukranian male prostitute.
V: I was wondering about that...
G: My doctor says that with a few more months of therepy I'll be able to eat Cheetoes again.
V: Dood, you remember that whole escapade involving the frozen mackerel and trying tot each that single working mother and her child the meaning of Labor Day?
G: Oh, what a day!
G: I'll never forget his trick with the lime jello and the three hundred spatulas!
V: God, he was a crazy sunnuva bitch. I remember the time he taught me this little thing where you could tell the time just by using a clock.
G: yeah, he...wait, you can do that?!
G: Amazing!
V: I know!
G: Ah, good ol' guy...I'll never forget him.
G: ...real shame about that grizzly.
G: I mean, there are certain dangers one expects while bungee jumping, but...
V: Yeah. Hey, did we ever find out WHY that guy decided to airlift his Circus into the mdidle of the city, anyway?
G: Something to do with Nixon.
V: Damn!
G: Yeah, I know...bloody Nixon. Always ruining things.
G: Did I ever tell you about the time he crashed my Halloween party?
V: I think you did... that was when he was dressed up as Cyborg Mother Teresa, right?
G: That was the one. He drank all the punch and I'm pretty sure he defecated in at least one of my houseplants.
G: Although in retrospect, I probobly shouldn't have spiked the punch with absinthe and peyote.
V: hey, that was an old family recipe! I have dead grandcestors that would SWEAR by it! or at it, I forget!
G: I don't think you can call your uncle Jimmy a "grandcestor". And I think it's no mysery why he's dead.
G: Remember, he wanted to be creamated?
G: We're still picking bits of the funeral home out of the pavement.
V: Well, it's their fault for not picking up Fiery Exploserous Penguins insurance!
G: Before that incident, it didn't exist!
G: Hell, it exists beacause of that incident!
G: (Incidentily, I picked a very lucrative time to invest. Me-YOW.)
V: Well, that's my Uncle Jimmy for ya - always coming up with new ideas for the Insurance agencies.
V: Remember the Aunt Frank Policy he started?
G: If not for the tip you had given me, I'd be bankrupt and homeless right now.
G: I prepares for all sorts of emergencies, but...
V: As opposed to beign filthy rich and homeless, like you sare now.
G: I live in the damn finest cardboard box you'll ever see.
G: It's got twenty rooms and a jacuzzi!
V: How big are the rooms?
G: Each one's about he size of a refridgerator, but that's not the point! Jacuzzi, man!
G: I almost didn't get it, but I managed to outbid the Pope at the last minute!
V: Dood, you shouldn't outbid the pope. He's gonna put a Jihad on you.
G: Normally I wouldn't, but there was even odds it was just a guy with a funny hat.
G: Again.
V: Good point. Just be glad he didn't bust out the Giant Mechas. Those Bible Missiles HURT.
G: You do not know pain until you've been beaten with a metal-plated Bible.
G: I've got Exodus scarred on my thigh!
V: Actually,I knew pain a long time ago. See, one time I tripped over a rock, and I went owwie, and THAT hurt. I think that was when I first knew pain.
G: ...oooooooooooooooohhhhhh.
G: That explains everything!
G: I guess I don't need this anymore...
G: Stupid word-of-the-day callendar...
V: I conquer.
G: And in conclusion:
G: I am soooo saving a log of this chat.

I'm bored and I haven't updated this thing lately so I'm going to yammer on a bit on the games I've been playing as of late.

I recently completed Metal Gear Solid 3, which is a fan-fscking-tastic game. And the ending...damn, the ending of an MGS game has yet to dissapoint me.
Next time I play to game, I'm going to unlock all the secret "boss camo" that you get by defeating the bosses in the game using nothing but a tranquilizer gun.

I've been working on my Tales of Symphonia game as of late. Sidequesting , mostly. That game is, without a doubt, one of the best RPGs I have ever played. Not to toot my own horn, but coming from a gaming vet like myself, that's a hellava reccomendation. If you have a gamecube, GET THIS GAME. It can usualy be found for a decent price, and you will NOT regret it.

I've been thinking of giving Disgaea: Hour of Darkness a replay. Not just starting the game over with my string characters, but completely replaying it. That's another one of the best games out's one of the few games I've been able to clock over a hundred hours on. Another must-have. In the really late stages of the game, the replay value is kind of limited unless you really enjoy twinking your characters out, but it's still a wonderful game.

Speaking of Disgaea, I still need to aquire a copy of Nippon Ichi's latest masterpiece, Atelier Iris. I've heard nothing but good things about this game.

On a final note, Wild ARMs: Alter Code F is due out early next year now, after a number of delays. I'm trying my best to be patient, as I just know this game will be a masterpiece. But the wait is still quite frustrating at times.
