Stressful month

As stressful as probation has been life still has more surprises to offer. Long story short I haven't been able to type because I was robbed at gunpoint so I've been using my time to replace what was stolen which was mainly my ID, social ect.

Not that they took anything really valuable, just my MP3 player, and I suppose my phone which was in really bad condition (it wouldn't hold a charge for over 2 hours).

Anyway, I can't be upset; not when I made it out alive! All that stuff reminds me of all them gangsta movies, but not just any gangsta movies. I like the movies where the teacher has something to show to those weapon wielding punks.

The Substitute focuses on a mercenary whom is presumably dead after a mission in Cuba, who then takes on the role of a substitute after his girlfriend is attacked by gang members.

I don't think anybody would mess with a teacher like that; just take a look at this scene:


I don't know why every person in a gang thinks they are something better than someone else, the reality is simple; you will either end up in prison your whole life or dead.

Nobody knew this better than Trevor Garfield (played by Samuel L Jackson) in the movie One Eight Seven.

The plot surrounds a teacher who is stabbed brutally by a student in a hallway. He then goes to a school in California to teach and try to help more troubled students get their life together, his life changes when he realizes that he has to play the gangsters game in order to teach them a lesson.


The point of this wasn't to show anybody how gangsta you can be, anybody can be a coward and point a gun (or any weapon for that matter) at anybody, but just remember that lifestyle will catch up to you eventually; and it may not be you that gets hurt- but those you hold dear.



Normally I wouldn't be one to share something I find on the internet to someone because chances are by the time you see it, a million people already have. Of course Epic Meal Time is no exceptions to this, but man those guys eat a lot of food.

Sure they may not be world record holders like Takeru Kobayashi (小林尊), but these guys make their own meals.

I don't understand how or why someone will subject themselves to eat so much food, but the thing is I really like watching.

Here you get to watch these guys tackle an 84 egg sandwich they made. I don't know about anyone else, but this sure makes me hungry... or makes me want to send an 84 egg sandwich to a third world country as long as I don't have to pay for the shipping weight haha.

Here is their youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/EpicMealTime#p/u/5/ZYffV7qhvTc


The Protomen

I haven't been this excited about a band I've been introduced to in a while. This is for any gamer that really liked the Mega Man (Rockman in Japan) series.

The Protomen is an awesome indie rock band that I want to introduce every gamer to. The songs are about the original six Mega Man games and yes you can expect the same level of energy coming from this band as you would if you were fighting one of the bosses in the game.

Here is one of their live shows.

This band stays true to the game and yes you can totally jam out to this while playing the game. So you may be thinking, "This is cool and all, but I don't like live bands". You can check out their associated acts The Makeup and Vanity Set.

Awesome Protomen songs converted into 8bit. So check them our for at least 10 seconds, after all you are already online it couldn't hurt to click the previews wouldn't it?


98 Degrees

Has anyone been outside lately!?

It feels like a blast furnace outside. Normally I wouldn't complain about the heat, but this summer has got to be one of the hottest summers I've experienced. I chose a terrible time to start growing out my hair. Hair aside, the weather is nearly unbearable and we are in the middle of a drought here in Texas.

Summer has just started and the heat index is already climbing over 100F (37C). So mother nature unleashes it's wrath, fields are burning and fish are dying due to the rising temperatures of the water. Not even the night is protection against the heat, it is currently 11:30 pm and the temperature outside is currently 89F (31C).

As usual your best defense against the heat is to stay indoors, wear light clothing and most importantly keep your fluids up. Of course you are going to have to go outside sometime, so if you have to go into the heat be sure to know the symptoms of heat exhaustion because it can worsen and turn to heat stroke if the proper care isn't given.


If someone has heat stroke you must remember to cool the individual down ASAP. Loosen the individuals clothing, get them to shade and if possible place ice on the persons neck armpits groin and inner thigh.

As much as anyone dislikes the weather, I'd like to close this out with a boy band that was as hot as our current temperature back in the 1990's. 98 Degrees.

I feel terrible about having ended this blog in a nostalgic boy band pun.


Wal-Mart. Save Money. Live better?

I know a lot of people loathe Wal Mart and I'm not here to pick sides either, I mean sure they're everywhere and they are starting to provide many services like phone services and now Ticketmaster and it looks like they are gonna take over soon if nobody does anything about it.

Anyway aside from all that, I was clocking just yesterday when something caught my eye. There was a strange message on the screen of the TV in the hallway leading to the sales-floor.
So, I look around at this point after blatantly taking a picture and decided to ask someone about it. As usual nobody seemed to know or care what the image on the television had. Then I too stopped caring about the picture, and went about my business. Later on I noticed some of the managers trying to get the store in shape because corporate was coming; it all seemed like a coincidence. Today there was yet another picture on the same screen, this is really starting to get my attention now because these sound like very bad things.

So no I am here thinking, "What the hell?". This sounds like they are telling us that they are gonna take our money from right under my noses, still it's best not to jump to conclusions. It's best for me to see what they have up tomorrow.
