Title: Quick update.
Posted: May 09, 2007 (10:26 PM)
So I've been packing my mom's open belly wound for the past few weeks, which has been awesome beyond explanation (makes me wanna become a nurse, or a medic).
Just recently though, she went for a check-up from a gastrointestinal surgeon who was a nice guy and all (very handsome older gentlemen with a deep booming voice, looked like a cross between Tommy Lee Jones and Powers Boothe, little bit of Josh Brolin), but despite how well it was healing up solely from being packed with gauze, decided to use Sterile Strips to bind the outer tissue together.
What do you know? There's a pocket of infection formed in it now that her home health nurse discovered early today. Man, that woman is great looking. Really short and nice shape and everything, cute as a button. . .
But back on subject, my mom has to go early tomorrow morning and have the surgeon dig around in there and try to find the abscesss - fun stuff.
Other than that though, she's on the road to recovery. Which is good.
Now it's time to walk to McDonald's and get a 75 cent Diet Coke. Yes, Diet. I'm a fatty.

Here we go:
~ Foreman doesn't actually want to quit! (Hooray!)
~ The top of a girl's head exploded after a previous attempt to take her life using drain chemicals in a capsule.
~ Suicide is bad. Because if it doesn't work out, your head could explode.
~ Wilson is getting cooler and cooler, just about replacing Foreman as my favorite. The guy's just so charismatic; it's borderline man-love.
~ He also got drugged by House, and then House got drugged by him. Both of them were just trying to prove points.
~ In the end, House's revelation that knowledge of a person's death made him happy, drew him to the conclusion that his patient suffered from depression. Leading him to a cure for what everyone thought incurable.

The first is a quote from a certain movie. . .
"Tiny opus has stage fright."
Hint: Phil LaMarr of MadTV had a tiny cameo in this movie, as did Jables and Rage of Los D Tenaces fame.
Secondly, let's see if you can identify a specific album. . .
I can't imagine, myself, that this album sold very well because it was marketed wrong.
Instead of calling it a soundtrack for a certain PC game (which it mostly was), it was released as a stand-alone.
Some of the cover art features a man caring for a younger version of himself.
Title: House recap.

~ Wilson might be a coward.
~ What's worse than losing a son? Losing two sons!
~ What's better than sex? Foreman coming to the rescue and saving them both! (And still being my favorite character)
~ House Aqcuires 'Flame Cane +2'
~ Foreman puts in his two week notice. (DAMN YOU!)
~ Never build a pitcher's mound with birdy poo-poo.

I was wondering if anyone would like to take on the favor of reading the opening portion of the story I'm writing, and maybe just giving a general feedback.
I kinda need all the help I can get on this one.

Updated my Bullet Witch review, so that now, it might actually make sense. And even if it doesn't, at least I won't sound so much like I have MPD.
Seriously, I don't know what I was thinking before. I write an entire damned review about how good the game is, and then give it a 5; finish the thing off by saying how miserable it is?

One; I was wondering if you guys knew of any kind of "futuristic" sounding music. Like techno, or industrial, I suppose. But with less of the trippin balls and growling, respectively. Stuff that sounds sort of synthetic, bass heavy?
Second; looking for some good metal music. Nothing slow and grinding. What, speed metal? Thrash? I have no idea; the music world has so many sub-genres it makes my head spin. Shredding?
Doesn't matter, I just need something blistering, like battle music or chase type music.

Coke or Pepsi?
Lime or Cherry?
Diet or Regular?
One or Zero?
Dr. Pepper or Mug?
Title: I dunno.

I'm trying to figure out a form for the way my story progresses, and was thinking maybe some of you could help me out a little. Ya know, with feedback and all that.
It comes down to whether I should devote each chapter change to a different character. It seems like an alright idea to me, but I worry about the cohesiveness of it all, honestly.
Otherwise, I'd devote each of the parts to a different character's storyline.
I think I'm just indecisive.
My copy of Beethoven Was Deaf had been lost up until a few days ago, when I found it at a friends house, of all places. I got it on my 360 and been looping Seasick Yet Still Docked while playing a couple stages from the first Max Payne, which is pretty cool.
I'm annoyed more than I can explain at the stank ass-ery of how KOTOR runs on the thing. One of my favorite games on the original XBox, just because of the association with the pen and paper style rules. When I was still a PC gamer back in the day, I fell mad in love with all of those types of games. Planescape especially, and Arcanum; Icewind Dale, because I read the trilogy by Salvatore - the game itself was pretty bad, though.

So my mom's doin fine, other than being in some amount of pain, but that's always ta be expected.
She'll get to come home by the beginning of next week, and in order to ward off the chance of another infection, her abdominal opening has been left as is, besides having the deepest layer of muscle tissue bound together.
So the layers of fat and such have to be kept open and packed with a type of moist surgical gauze to keep out germs, and while healing, the flesh'll push it out gradually.
I get to dress the wound and take care of it, so that's awesome. Now my mom is a bigger lady, so there's tons of exposed shit that I get to play with and stuff, and I figure it best to improve my guts if I ever plan on joining the army.
Title: Oh boy.

Mom's in the hospital. Again.
Gall bladder and such. Oh well.
It's like Jedi training.
There is no coincidence; only The Force.
Title: Here's something to wrap your mind around.

A little earlier, I played Star Wars: Rebel Assault II on the Playstation. I can only find it listed under Mac, though.
Title: It has been brought to my attention.
Posted: April 09, 2007 (11:45 AM)
That my writing skills suffer more than I thought. Fear not! I have every intent on self improvement, and I'd just like to thank the people who have been so forward with their advice and encouragement this far.
Title: Heed the Call.
Posted: April 08, 2007 (09:26 PM)
So I posted up a review of a favorite online game of mine, Asheron's Call, as I stumbled upon its section here on the site, and was dismayed that it was empty.
It was interesting to be with it for so long, and see all of the changes take place firsthand, all the good and all of the bad. Mostly bad on a technical level, but more the good on how the original player community offered a great place to role play.
It was a lame mistake on the part of Turbine to allow third party software integration (Decal), because it did indeed, lead to the demise of an otherwise promising, growing fantasy world that had done so, so much to set itself apart from the pack of cliches, that have somehow managed to emerge victorious today.
Hope remains in my heart, though, that someone, somewhere will take an important lesson away from the game's divine intent, to provide wanting appetites with a fresh meal, maybe in the near future, inspiring developers to try as hard as they can to bring something marvelously unique to the table.
Which goes to show you that, in my mind, a low score doesn't always equal abysmal. At least not all around.

I saw that EmP reviewed Dreamfall. . .
Didn't read it yet, but I will.
Makes me wonder if anyone ever played Beneath a Steel Sky. Man, I loved that game.
Such a cool main character, in such a punk-ass coat, with such a punk-ass robot.
And an awesome story, too. Very well told.
I should read that review.
