The Amazing Screw On Head

The Amazing Screw On Head is the greatest show I have ever seen. You can see the first episode for free, on the internet, whenever you want. I suggest you watch it 24 hours a day, every day, until the next episode comes out.

What is up with people?

I've been wearing a shirt inside out for hours, and no one told me. It's not like it wasn't obvious, it has a white tag on a black shirt. I asked someone if I had ice cream on my nose from eating some, and he helped me with that. Apparently, the entire "shirt inside out" thing wasn't important enough to note.

Like Bob Dylan, but backwards

I have an acoustic guitar. I'm still learning the basics, but I can play a few chords and know the notes on half the strings.

It cost a grand total of six dollars at a garage sale. A replacement string cost an additional three dollars. I never knew the music business was so expensive!

PS: videos like this are why google video exists.

I Am The Master Of The Internet

It took me half an hour, but I figured out how to put a button on the bottom of my weblog. No one is going to look there unless they read this post, but I still got it there. I am truly the king of html.

Now if anyone wants to check if the Earth has been destroyed, they can refer to my weblog if the Earth Destruction page is down.

Clerks II

I just saw Clerks II, and I wish I hadn't.

There are funny parts, but Kevin Smith seems to think that being obscene is either funny, or a goal in its own right. So we have a movie that often offends without humour. It's like going into a sewer for a free baseball cap: you get a cap, but it wasn't worth it, not by a long shot.

I know you're going to want to go, and I'm not going to change your mind. Therefore, let me say, "I told you so" before hand.

DS on the internet

So, the DS is going to be able to surf the net pretty soon. Cool!

An Enourmous Ping-Pong Ball

It's my kind of weather: drizzling, cool and quiet. The sky is so uniformly grey, it looks as though the world were encased in an enourmous Ping-Pong Ball.

Everyone else I know doesn't really care for this kind of weather. Not everyone can be correct, like me.

Pirates II

I saw Pirates II. It was pretty good. Not enough Geoffrey Rush, not enough Johnny Depp. Too much, (any) Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom.

Dear directors: special effects do not a movie make.

Ultra-Summary: Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl: The Return Of The Unnecessarily Long Name

Pirates of the Caribbean
The Curse Of The Black Pearl

The Ultra-Summary

Orlando Bloom: I am a master smith, and a talented swordsman. I am self-taught in swordplay, and I trained in smithing under a worthless drunkard.

Johnny Depp: But, you're only twenty years old! And you've only been here for eight years! How is that possible?

Geoffrey Rush: I don't get nearly enough screen time. Arr.

(Geoffrey Rush is shot to death)

Norrington: Now I finally get to hang Jack Sparrow.

The Governor: Good.

(Johnny Depp escapes)

Norrington and the Governor: I guess we like Johnny Depp now? Didn't we want to kill him a second ago?

-The End-

Back in Black

I'm back in town, and it's good to be back. I've injected myself into the internet pretty much constantly since I've returned. I was going to do a picture travelogue about the trip, but that would be hard to do.

A New Challenger!

Dungeon update: As I mentioned earlier, the people who died in the fight seem more positive than the survivor. They seem genuinely excited about making new characters. The first (nearly) finished one is seen below. I gladly welcome our new PC, Centaur Guy!

PS: I don't know why he's wearing a belt either.

PPS: I'm going to be out of town for a week or so, so don't expect any updates.

There Was A Firefight!

The party is dead.

In the dungeon game, everyone but the barbarian was brutally killed and eaten by Cerberus. There are a couple funny things along with that:

1. The barbarian was the only person who seemed concerned.

2. Any number of of things could have prevented the fight entirely, or at least allowed more people to escape. It was a series of mistakes and coincidences that actually brought them to their deaths.

Anyway, the dead players are jazzed about being able to start up new characters. They all seem to want to play monstrosities. I'm not sure why, but apparently any of the traditional D&D races just aren't cool enough for them.

PS. Bonus point if you identify the title quote.

I Am Literally Angry With Rage.

I move that the word 'literally' be stricken from the English language. The vast majority of times it is used, it is used incorrectly. Even when it's not wrong, it is usually unnecessary or a poor choice.

For the record, the only time that literally should be used is when you are using an expression that is usually taken figuratively, but you want it to be understood by the actual meaning of the words.

For example:

"I am literally the devil's advocate."

This means that you are an attorney or another form of representative, and that you work for the devil. You use the word 'literally' because if you do not, someone will assume that you are simply arguing in favor of an unpopular position, which is the figurative meaning of "playing the devil's advocate."

iPod Has Arrived

My iPod arrived. I don't have any time to talk about it, as I'm spending all my time messing with it.
