Man, what a month and a Media Rundown

Well, the Christmas season is finally drawing to a close, and I survived another one in retail. I came close to not, especially when I lost my voice and was in a car accident, but I've got the 31st and 1st off and I intend to make the best of it... I'm going to sleep, damn it! Seriously, I haven't had a decent night's sleep in probably a month, and now I've got two days off to attempt to relax. Also, I'm only working afternoon's for the upcoming week, so I get ample sleep-in time daily.

That said, once I have more time, I'll probably start posting more. I've got an idea for a site that just summarizes the movies I've seen. It's sort of an in-joke with my co-workers.

Anywho, Christmas (and Boxing week) has brought me new media to consume, and consume it I have.

Watching: On DVD, Blade Runner: the Final Cut, Dangerous Days: The Making of Blade Runner, The Simpsons Movie, Horror of Dracula, Batman Begins, Mysterians, Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People, Varan the Unbelievable, Live Free or Die Hard, Smokin' Aces, Children of Men, Carnivale season 1, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Van Helsing (Ultimate Edition), D.O.A. - Dead or Alive, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Day Watch, and 28 Weeks Later. On TV, not much of anything, really. About to watch- Shoot'em Up and Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned.
Listening (to): Various MP3s, and far too much Christmas music.
Reading: Starships of the Galaxy.
Playing: Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, and Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords.

I've also acquired a new MP3 player. A Samsung K3:
This is definitely a step up from my Sansa M250, and it got a lithium-ion battery as opposed to my constant supply of AAA. Yes, in a couple of years the battery is going to crap out, but since it's not an iPod and I didn't pay an iPod price, I really don't mind. I also think it's far sexier than an iPod, to boot. (It's also not a Zune either. Nudge, nudge.)

More human, than human

I am now the proud owner of this:I had pre-buyer's remorse, but after getting it home and popping in a couple of the discs, I am completely satisfied with my somewhat expensive purchase. Okay, $65 bucks for 5 cuts of a single film is a little... obsessive, but this is arguably the most important American film of the second half of the 20th century, if not the most important film ever. The sheer amount of influence the film has had on just about everything is astounding.

For the record, expect one of my messays on the topic in the next couple of days. I'm composing it in my head at the moment.

The weirdest anime you'll ever see

It's an anime short from Aum Shinrikyo. Yes, that Aum Shinrikyo. The terrorist group/cult.

I'm bored

I think I'll sue Vonnage for patent infringement. It seems to be the thing to do these days.

For those just joining us...

I'm assuming you're checking this place out via the link from RPGnet. Just to let you know, there's not much here, and the links on the side are far more interesting.

That said, 95% of my hits go to either the Godzilla cloud or the Hot Asian Cosplay chick (that apparently is anti-cosplay hate.)

And that's all she wrote.

Trimming the links

Well, I scrapped S*P: New Gold Dream and Stomp Tokyo, for primarily the same reasons: no updates. Stomp Tokyo also gets the nod as being run by self-important wankers, and I just tire of them.

Playing: Medal of Honor: Frontline, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, Star Wars: Starfighter, Wild Arms 5, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology, and Godzilla: Save the Earth.

Oh, and I'm still sick, dammit.

Well, that's that

It looks like I'm not special anymore as my daily hits have been dropping like a rock. I still have no idea why I was getting all of those not-so-random hits, but it seems like they're over now.

Now, with that said, don't expect any updates for a while. It's December, I work retail, and I'm also very ill at the moment.

Also, a little part of me dies every time I visit the message boards over at Space: the Imagination Station as the levels fan entitlement and sheer stupidity are overwhelming. I really have to stop going there, as no good ever comes of it.
