About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

The Importance of Self-Awareness.
September 15, 2007

If I say that I'm happy enough as it is being on my own - and can remember specific moments when it's rang significantly true - then why is most of my lonesome time spent feeling like an old gentleman with the blues?

More curious; if I'm content like I find, then why in the hell is it any bother?

I can't figure out love - but it's not even love. Depending on your outlook and philosophy, truth behind that matter may not ever exist. More seriously important is the ability to run the track.

Metal Gear!? It can't be!
September 11, 2007

I know that it's blurry and backwards (thanks mirror, and thanks phone for not being able to be held at a good angle) but that's my new tattoo courtesy of Will at Skin City Tattoo in downtown Tigard, OR.

I have to go back in three weeks and have it finished - I was bleeding too much for him to finish filling in the orange. So it'll be another two months almost before it's completely healed.

But; I love it.




Body and Soul part I
September 09, 2007

In a world dominated by marketing schemes, it's often difficult for the people who seek real, vital information without being given a shmooze.

Fitness of the body is important, make no mistake, but when everyone and their neighbor wants to make a cut in the diet and health business, you as a person are getting the least help possible.

Companies make it out to be something that you can shirk off if you buy their meals. 'Buy L.A. Weight Loss meals and you'll be happy and skinny!'

It saddens me that there is indeed a target audience for these scams. People who are insecure and lack a real sense of confidence; good folk who feel as though they're inferior to others because of their size, shape or physical appearance. For them, it's a very appealing offer.

My Choice. . .
September 08, 2007

42" Panasonic Plasma with 720p and 1080i support for $1,009.99 VS 37" Sony LCD with 720p and 1080p support for $1,399.

I still have some time to swap out my set, so helpful feedback would be. . . helpful. As far as I can see, I'm happy with this purchase - but I'm curious what happens to Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs when they're viewed in 720p as opposed to 1080p.

What do you think?
Generally, I've just heard that Plasma sets have better picture in terms of response time and black levels.


Which is the better format:

Bought a PS3. . . (and other things)
September 07, 2007

Sort of. Got scammed by some Nigerian Paypal scammer. I know, I know - shut ya mouth, no lectures. With one minute left for bid on the 80Gig model at $460, I was so buzzed I didn't check the dude's user rating.

So yeah, I got scammed my nearly $500 amount. Piece of shit, me.

Anyhow; I should be fully reimbursed for the funds within the next month thanks to either Paypal, or my bank if Paypal fails to take the lead.

Being as it is, I went out today (to the store) and bought another (real) PS3. $450 for the 60gig, which I hear is better because of the PS2 chip inside of it - something like that. Piece of shit only came with a damned composite cable - dunno what else I thought I'd get, but. . .

A most Strugglingest WRITTER
September 05, 2007

The summer tournament may not have swung in our full favor, but considering some setbacks, I'm glad that we placed where we did.

Jason and Felix were great to work with and I'll even go so far as to say that they taught me a lot. Over the span of six weeks I managed to pump out a single, new review. Not an extraordinary feat under usual circumstances, but I feel like I accomplished a lot.

Both J & F went completely out of their way on numerous occasions in order to make sure that things were getting through to me. Taking into account my dull intellect and the fact that I should have understood most of what they were saying from the get-go. . . you have two truly patient people.
