Gone savage for teenagers with automatic weapons and boundless love. [28 Aug 2005|04:26pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

As of now I am currently sitting in the Meydenbauer Convention Center in Bellevue, WA. You might be wondering why I'm here. The answer is simple. PAX is the reason. That's right. If you didn't already know, I'm a big geek. I even pre-registered for this event, that's how big a geek I am. I've been reading Penny Arcade since their very first comic, in 1998, when they didn't even have their own website and were hosted on loonygames. Click here to see it. This is their latest comic. As you can see, they have really come a long way since 1998.

I was pretty excited for this event, but when I finally got here I was pretty underwhelmed. The building in which thousands of PA fans have converged to attend this convention is not suited to this type of event, if I may so humbly opine. The large theatre auditoriums and showroom floors are great for the panels, concerts, and exhibitions here. However, the already-minimal passing space for people to travel between these venues has been further jam-packed with consoles, DDR machines, Pinball tables, sponsor booths and tables, and the like. This has the highly undesirable consequence of jamming people together tightly as they try to get from Point A to Point B.

Admittedly, this sort of sardine-ization of attendees is par for the course for pretty much any convention and is to be expected, really. The thing that makes this especially terrible is the fact that this is the PA Expo. When you go to a convention for the financial invenstment firm you work for, people show up well groomed and wearing professional attire. Not here. Being sandwiched in amongst the myriad unwashed and socially inept is an assault on the senses most notably, the olfactory sense. Woof!). Seeing these skiny, acne-ridden teenagers ramped up and wired on Bawls (tee hee!) seriously sets off my douchebag alarm and just makes me wish that instead of handing out gum, 1Up.com had handed out samples of deodorant.

Making matters worse, a good friend of mine decided to get married yesterday, which also happened to be the main day of the event. So I had the singular pleasure of rousting my tired body from a fitful sleep at the ungodly hour of 8AM and then driving ~3.5 hours to Portland to attend the wedding. Then I drove back. On the ride back, in an effort to combat fatigue, I purchased and subsequently consumed a large can of "Sugar Free Energy Drink" by Jones Soda Co. (blue can). This, combined with a beer I drank at the reception, sent my kidneys into overdrive, and my bladder started filling up quickstyle due to the combined diuretic effect of alcohol and copious quantities of caffeine in my system. I had to pull over and pee like mad about 30 minutes into the return drive. Then I had to pee again later but we were stuck in traffic that was not moving at all because some douchebag just couldn't wait to change lanes or some such shit and caused an accident.

Anyways, I finally got back and caught the last two songs of MC Chris' set at the concert and the Minibosses who played afterwards and rocked the house. I missed MC Frontalot entirely, which is sad because I heard he was "the shit." It's ok though because I got a signed CD from him. I also got signed cds from MC Chris.
The best thing about this weekend, though, was that I got to meet and have dinner w/ Gabe and Tycho on Friday. Freakin' AWESOME.

Tomorrow (Monday) I get to drive back to Eugene and pack up all my shit to move out of my apartment on Wed.

Adventures in Excessive Fossil Fuel Waste [20 Aug 2005|10:01pm]
So! I am currently in lovely Seattle, Washington for the purposes of visiting my cousin and a few other peeps and also attending PAX. I left Eugene on Thursday and stayed in P-Town with my beautiful girlfriend. Before leaving Eugene, I ran over my mental checklist of things I needed to bring on this trip, such as toiletries, clean underwear, etc, etc. So on Friday, I was getting ready to depart Portland for Seattle and I was draining the ol' bladder in preparation for for the sojourn when all of a sudden it hit me: I left my badge for PAX in my apartment in Eugene.


Fuckity Fuck.

So instead of going to Seattle Friday evening, I returned to Eugene and then got up early this morning to drive to Seattle. Sigh. I am sofa king we todd did. At least Washington State drivers know (for the most part) how to drive. Even though a high percentage of people insisted on going exactly the speed limit or under in the fast lane, most of them moved to the right in a timely fashion when I approached from the rear. Kudos to drivers who actively pay attention to their mirrors.

In unrelated news, for a quintessential example of feminine beauty see Jenny Agutter in Logan's Run. In my humble opinion, her type of natural beauty is way hotter than any plastic bimbo that makes it into Hollywood these days. I'd just like to thank Bill Thomas for his vision for the "futurustic" outfits the women wore in that movie. Despite their cheesiness, they do a pretty good job of showing of the female form. Yum.

Mmmm... sweet, sweet wireless! [23 Jan 2005|10:51am]
[ mood | amused ]

Well, well, well. Here I am in luverly PLC 180, updating via happy wireless connectivity on my new @migo Pocket PC (thanks G!) It was kind of a pain in the ass getting the wireless card to work on this thing, though. It's some kind of no-name brand so I had trouble finding a driver. Then I found some Compaq driver that said it would work with most 802.11b cards, so I gave it a try and bingo!

So now here I am in my SAPP seminar on juvenile delinquency listening to a professor from PSU (which he says is the largest university in Oregon. I'm curious whether that's true). This guy is pretty funny. He reminds me a lot of Chris Kattan and he sets my gaydar off in a BIG way. All he needs is a lisp.

Anyways, it's lunch time now and I need to read for my history and journalism classes. Peace!

Hoo-ray for Science! [13 Jan 2005|12:14pm]
[ mood | Shower-Fresh! ]

"Nobody likes us. Nobody."
"Why are you messing with the fantasy? We know about the reality. Don't ruin the fantasy, ok?"
(Gary and Wyatt, Weird Science)

What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science

Got enough love to rule the world
Got enough cool to win the girl
Got enough food to feed the poor
Got enough hate to win the war

Got enough trees to see the woods
Got enough lies to sell the goods
Got enough will to make the shoulds
Got enough time to find the coulds

What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science

Got a big rocket to reach the moon
Got enough fuel to see you soon
Got a T3 inside of me
Gotta be who I want to be

Make my heart light as a feather
Make my mind control the weather
What can bring us all together
I can't stand to be without her

Trying not to hear what the robot said
Trying not to cry when I'm in my bed
Trying not to go where I'm being lead
Baby, I won't quit till I'm ten times dead

"You are a scientist. Do not think there are things in this universe which you cannot understand and which are true."
(Van Helsing, Bram Stoker's Dracula)

What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science
What we need more of is science

(Get the song here.)

You are Mr. E's Beautiful Blues

your sardonicism tends to over-shadow your
other features. but that's okay because that
makes you an interesting and fun person to hang
out with.

i want a kite [10 Jul 2004|11:41pm]
[ mood | horny ]

and i don't mean the bird. i want a totally rad stunt kite. i mean the type with 2 handles and screamin 80's dayglo colors, outlined in black. i flew a kite today for awhile but it only had one handle on it, which was broken, and it wasn't quite wide enough. the colors were right on tho, and it had badass streaming tails. if i'd had 2 handles i could have made cool ribbon loops in the air. oh well. it was still very relaxing to kick back in the chair on the lawn under a bright blue sky and watch the pretty kite fly around in the breeze. I haven't updated in awhile, so this post might get a bit long...Collapse )

Procrastination... [04 Jun 2004|04:12pm]
[ mood | Procrastinatory ]

I need to study geology, but I've been wholly consumed by this and this.

Here, finally, are the fruits of my ~30 min of persistant clicking on the latter. Yes, that's correct, I got max level on everything. VICTORY IS MINE!!! Now that I have finally conquered it, I am going to reward myself by studying diligently for geology.

Buh Bye.

It must be spring [07 May 2004|03:09pm]
[ mood | productive ]

I love looking out my window and seeing squirrels in my tree. It's even better when the squirrels are getting it on. Bow chicka-bow wow!

I have a drrrrrty-ass room and I'm going to clean it up. Then I'm going to write my 作文(finally) and do my history paper so I can devote the remainder of my weekend to studying for my midterm. Whee.

A certain girl and I have decided to officially become a couple. I'm so happy!! I always feel so good around her, and I never know what to say and I feel like I just wind up blabbering on and on like a gibbering idiot whenever I say anything. Oh well.... articulation will develop, I'm sure. Anyways, I'm off to accomplish some shit and be productive for once.

Finally, an update.... [04 May 2004|12:49am]
[ mood | Elated ]

So, it's been awhile. This isn't a real update, just a quick blurb. Emily and I are no longer together. We had a good run, but we seperated awhile ago. We're still friends. I've been spending quite a little bit of time with this other girl who just makes me feel giddy whenever I'm near her. She's truly amazing. I hung out with her tonight. We played scrabble and I held her hand while she slowly drifted in and out of conciousness. I still feel the electricity from her touch! Hopefully, things will go well with her.

Also, I saw this and decided to go ahead and do it.... I usually don't do these things, but wtf... I really like my music so I decided to make an exception.

On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favorite line(s) of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.

01 - Uninvited, we'll stay if we want; searching through your closets for your grandfather's gun.
02 - Just chillin' at the Ritz. Playa haters hate to be seein' me livin' like this, so lavish, cashin' checks with 6 digits.
03 - The most that you can spend on any child is time.
04 - You said, "It's snowing. It's snowing! God, I hate this weather." Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together.
05 - And silence, contagious in moments like these, consumed me and strengthed my will to appease the passion that sparked me one terrible night and shocked and persuaded my soul to ignite.
06 - I'm so indie that my shirt don't fit.
07 - I wish I had a shilling for every senseless killing.
08 - I kneel and I pray every day to my TV to tell me what's true.
09 - The moon winked as if to say yes and I ran in the cold night and sweated and it felt good. And I could hit the nail on the head and drive that fucker home.
10 - Gone savage for teenagers with automatic weapons and boundless love.
11 - Your choice is who you choose to be and if you're causing no harm then you're alright with me.
12 - Voices tell me I'm the shit.
13 - Yo! Comin' through your lane with pure skills so stand clear. Vocal charge is a mirage, I still stand here damn near make your shit look soft like Pam Grier.
14 - I'm in need of a sherpa when I smoke this blend.
15 - You ran with your colors and your flags unfurled and you ignited everything like a gasoline rain.
16 - Magic markers tattoo you and show it where to aim and strangers break their promises, "You won't feel any pain."
17 - I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become.
18 - Blow my mind your royal fly-ness, I dig your bangs.
19 - Ever notice how drinking's like war? Cup o' troops o'er the gums. 'Till the end of our health, I campaigned 'gainst myself armed with bourbons and scotches and rums.
20 - I don't care if you act like a turd 'cause I like birds.

So comment and see how many you can get. There is no way you will get them all w/out cheating and using Google.
