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.


Oh the summer boredom

Sometimes, I just really don't like the summer. School's out and all the annoying kids in your neighborhood run around freely just begging to get hit by a car. Then there is no comfortable place to go; you could go to a park and get burned or get a heatstroke- or you can go see a movie, but there are so many annoying kids yelling in the theater and cell phones going off.

So, how does one spend the summer?

Sometimes on days like this it's better to sit at home and get really nostalgic, not only does it help pass the time, but you usually find something to do afterwards (not only that, but bringing up an old show, song or movie usually get's people talking at parties).

So I guess this is how I am gonna try and spend my time this summer, watching some old Home Improvement episodes. AL BORLAND! NAME THAT WOOD!


The energy crisis

I finally got some sleep last night after 3 consecutive days of partying and doing full shifts at work and filling in for the those that didn't bother to show up. Yeah I was up the whole time

The last days have been so exhausting. I've been doing drugs too, music is my drug.

No, but seriously I've been using music as my medium to stay awake; not just because I enjoy music (like everyone else), but because this is the only way I can have some control over my brainwave patterns (iDosing does not work for me).

The sounds produced by One Day as a Lion have provided me with what I considered to be a legal stimulant- the entire ep is good and the songs are a decent length.

Here's a little rating on the ep:

Great music preformed by Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore
Songs are a decent length, not too long nor too short
The sound is aggressive and energetic

It sounds a lot like Rage Against the Machine

Finally the negative, as  great as the album is the only bad thing I can pick out is that the ep is only 5 songs long.

In the end it's really music worth actually owning. It makes me wanna stay awake, it's great for giving you the confidence to finish even the most daunting of tasks that have to be done.

Not the zombie apocalypse

Well no not really; I'm just talking about how I got back into playing the Fallout series. You know most people talk about a zombie apocalypse and most people talk about Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead. I think Society would end up like in Fallout.

On a completely different note; I just cant think of any other game that allows me to have the amount of freedom you get in Fallout. You can kill just about anyone, you can steal from just about everyone, you can become a squatter, you can own a home, you can become addicted to drugs and suffer withdrawal symptoms, get radiation poisoning, eat just about anything you kill, make weapons from junk make your own drugs and medicine, ect... All this will completely affect you later in the game too.

You can do so much I suppose that it would be shorter to type out what you can't do. As far as I know you can't get married, you can't grow your own food (which would have been really be useful because it's a survival type game), you can't own stock or make your character dress in drag, you can't get arrested and you can't get sick. However you can die of starvation and sleep deprivation in Fallout New Vegas.

The game features futuristic technology, while making it look like a model 1950's city after being hit by an atomic bomb. To really entice the player though the game has artists such as Frank Sinatra, Roy Brown from the mid 1950's perfectly suiting the game.

Next time you want to live out your post apocalyptic fantasy play any of the Fallout games.


A free ride to another dimension

Wow the weekend was awesome!

Went to some ransom party. Unfortunately now that I have been sober due to that DWI, it's gotten a bit harder to loosen up and talk to people, but that's OK.


I got an ounce of the liquid and about 6 fat grams of 40X salvia.

Salvia in an atypical psychedelic/dissociative, unlike many other substances; it does not seem to have a relationships with any of the known neuro-transmitters in the human brain. Like most psychedelics it is not considered to be addictive nor has it been shown to do any long term damage to humans.


Computer party network

Over the past couple of days, I have turned my computer into a small multimedia center. I think this is where I am going to ride off my probation so I don't get into trouble again. So next time I have people over I just need to crank up some awesome tunes and the awesome visuals I got for my computer on the big screen.

But you can't just play music loudly, it's got to be finely tuned with awesome quality. This has settings and codecs that will boost the sound of your system even if you have cheap speakers.


Good for tripping out to the psychedelics don't you think? *wink wink*

Honestly, if you really like music it won't hurt to try these things out.

Well time to getting back to connecting my computer to whatever I can find in the house.


Public Service announcement

Its been so busy lately that it's starting to cut into my party time.

Since I've had no time to party I may as well talk about drinking and driving.


I know the penalties are lower in other states, but being caught drinking and driving is awful. You'll have to go to jail for a few days, and to to court appointed meetings all the time.

Luckily, this county lets me keep it off my record assuming that I pass this year long ordeal of probation, and alcohol classes.

I was gonna post a picture of my breathalyzer, but the server isn't letting me...

Here's a little rundown if you want to keep a DWI off your record in select counties in TX:

Get a lawyer

Get monitoring equipment to make sure you are not consuming any controlled substances or alcohol; There's 3 options here as well. You can get a SCRAM; which is an ankle monitor that monitors your location and your sweat for the presence of any controlled substances and alcohol 24/7 or, either a breathalyzer with a camera on either your car or your person. This has to be serviced twice a month and you pay once a month for recalibration.

Attain a state offenders card

Attend Divert (this is the name of the program that will keep a DWI off your record) Orientation

Attend Divert Class

Attend "Alive at 25" (if your offense happened before the age of 25, which was my case)

Take a literacy exam

Take an alcoholism evaluation and attend AA if shown to have high potential of substance abuse (not my case)

Urinalysis testing

Paying your probation officer.

To top it all off those are ONLY the monetary restrictions. As far as my calculations go this DWI is going to cost $6000 to keep off my record.

Also NEVER assume that just because you don't feel a buzz that you are not legally intoxicated, in my case I had 2 beers. I was driving fine, but I was caught in a speed trap. I passed my motor skills test, but I failed the breathalyzer.



Haven't slept well in I don't know how long. Really wanted to sleep in today because I work late in the afternoon, but I had to get up early to hide my friend's cats since her lease doesn't allow animals in the apartments. Thing is I got up  and then I wasted two hours online doing nothing.

This gauze on my hand is really annoying because I can't type with it on, unfortunately taking it off has become a problem because the gauze is now stuck to my skin.

Well, you know it's Wednesday. The weekend is just around the corner, so I'm looking forward to the next party; also the next (legal) intoxicant due to the fact I cannot drink.

Speaking of which, I don't know why people hate on Texas so much. It has just about everything. I really like living here, even though I disagree with much of the local government here. That wasn't the point though. What I was really gonna do was enlighten/inform about Texas. This, is probably going to be the ONLY thing that both annoys me and you should be weary of in Texas.

The laws here are soooooo strict. There's a saying here: "Don't mess with Texas".

Now here's my advice: If you are gonna mess with Texas, be sure not to get caught and have someone bail you out of either jail or any other trouble you  may have.

You will lose a lot of the privileges you take for granted.

Anyway, it's best I tend to those cats. I'll leave a picture of my old party days as something to look forward to.

Btw; that's my friend, Victor. You can't tell by just looking, but he is blacked out and unconscious. There is more pictures, but I can't post them because his pants are not on, and the rest of the clothing he has on is just drawn on and you can see his anatomy.

I spent an additional 45 minutes, trying to find another suitable picture. I don't remember taking this picture. Giovanni (left) John (right). This was taken in Austin during SXSW around 10 in the morning, and we were already blacked out. I don't know how Giovanni's pants fell, but according to the exif data in the pictures he was lying down with his pants off for about 7 or 8 minutes. This was also the limo entrance to a really nice hotel. Nobody knows how John's finger ended up like that, but when I regained consciousness he was bleeding for another hour.

Anyway... cats...



So much has happened in the last few days. As a mater of fact: except for one thing...

Good: Semester at school is done

Got 70 euros at work for a buying a foreign customer a 50 dollar phone

It's time to get my driver's license back

Been getting intoxicated between classes.

Thinking of starting a small business in an area where I know I'll have no competition.

Going Dallas for an anime convention, my room is free. 

Bad: Got a second degree burn on my hand fr messing around with a jet lighter.

Anyway, I'm really excited about going to Dallas. Even though I go to anime conventions, I'm not a big anime fan at all, cosplayers annoy me, and I don't like being touched by the sweatiest cosplayer after he/she has finished playing Dance Dance Revolution. I'm really just there to trash my room, get intoxicated and party along with people that aren't totally obsessed with anime.

Years ago before I was 21, I got drunk with this guy. I don't remember his name at this very moment, but I specifically remember him saying NOT to post this on the internet. Well, oops? Anyway, I hope I can raise enough money in a month to make it to Dallas.


Dear lawd

It's been super busy today. Drove my friend to the airport and she left me the key to her place... Hell yeah, I'm getting lucky, but not in the "bom-chika -wow wow" kind of way, I gotta clean up her cat crap and feed them for about 2 weeks.

Yeah I got my breathalyzer re-calibrated (I'm not supposed to drink, court order) which sucks, but now I go in in two months instead of two weeks to get it calibrated. Only 11 months to go!!

Now that all that's out of the way I guess I could uhhh, damn I don't know what t do. OOOOOH... Nah nevermind, I thought I had a good idea, but I guess not. Oh well, I'll randomly do something and then I'll be bound to end up with something to do right?



Well there's no real reason for me to be in school since I already took my final, now I'm just making up absences. You'd think "HAHA! THEY GOT YOU! YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP, LOL!!!"

But no, it is I who have won; I have won because I am intoxicated. Got a good buzz going on.

I feel like party cat except nobody here parties this early except me (I've been like this since 8 am).




It's been a long semester, I've had to take this kickboxing class as part of my PE credit. All semester I have been unable to understand anything coming out of this man's mouth, he's got a strange accent and he talks very fast and very quietly- almost as if he is mumbling.

Sometimes I'd like to punch him in the back of the head and walk out of the class, but alas I cannot; I'd get arrested  and I'd fail the class. It doesn't look like I am going to have to punch him considering that we took  our final today. I didn't expect a written test for a PE class, but what the hell.

So anyway I drew a picture of a dinosaur on the back of my test, I hope I get extra credit for this, I'll just have to wait and see.


The news: This thing

The news: This thing


This thing

I still havent gotten used to using this bloggger thing, anyway...

Things got crazy the other day with some crazy mushrooms and so on. Then that was it, kinda boring, nothing cool has happened. Nothing funny has happened either odd.



So this is my new blog. Not so sure what to type about, but if someone out there reads this it may serve as a little "what not to do" guide when certain situations come about.
