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.

Almighty Norton
August 20, 2007

Don't you just love it when you're in the middle of something and Norton decides it's time for a full-system scan, even though you have everything set to manual controls? That is all.

BioShock has shipped. It's not officially out until the 21st (hear that Wal-Mart?), but stores have them in the backrooms. If you're even half as pants-crapping excited as me, I suggest going to your local store and getting a last-minute reserve on the Collector's Edition ASAP. I'm not usually one to get suckered in by useless extras like soundtracks and DVDs, but this one comes with a Big Daddy figurine. At first I thought it was going to be a little keychain-sized trinket. Noooo....... This thing is full-size, for a toy that is. I wouldn't complain about a life-size one, but my girlfriend might not be so thrilled. The Han Solo cutout freaks her out enough as it is.


(Untitled Post)

Just a little update from my previous problems with the unemployment office. I don't know how things swung my way, but they did. I'm happy to say that I will not be receiving any fines or charges, and I get to keep the money already paid out to me. To top it off, they even sent me a check from the week that Best Buy tried to block me out. Life just got better.


DS - Better days ahead?
August 02, 2007

I think my DS is getting lonely. It's been sitting on the shelf, untouched, unplayed, for a few weeks now. It doesn't help that the last game it experienced was Touch the Dead. Poor little guy. It's not that I don't want to play my DS. It's that I don't want to play the majority of recent games.

Can we stop with the puzzle games already. I don't need five different versions of sudoku, or a dozen renditions of Tetris with a unique twist. For that matter, I don't need anymore card games either. Marvel had one, SNK did too, and coming up, one for Fullmetal Alchemist, and three from the Mega Man franchise. Three? For crying out loud.

So long Best Buy
July 29, 2007

As some of you know, I was previously working at Best Buy in the media department. I say 'previously', particularly because I haven't physically worked in the store since May 26th, despite being a bona fide employee.

The problem came when I requested a transfer from the Madison store to the Milwaukee store to coincide with moving. I wanted to start around June 1st, and management at both stores were telling me that it "was good to go," and it was "a done deal." As luck would have it, my General Manager from Madison was taking over the same store I wanted to go to, and at the same time as me. Everything seemed in order. I had a my Uhaul, a remodeled apartment, and a job all ready to go.

DDR accomplishment
July 22, 2007

This morning I broke through my wall. After far too many years of trying, I finally beat DDR's Max 300 on Heavy. It was ugly, my score was abysmal, and the bar won't be walking straight for a month, but I did it.


Prison Ain't so Bad
July 21, 2007

Coolest prison in the world. End of story.
