…when the first thing you get after receiving your refund check is to pre-order Halo Reach.
It’s been days since I’ve posted anything so here’s something.
I’ve just moved back into my dorm at school and I’m already having issues. I can’t even comfortably unpack my things because of the epic amount of disgust that I have for my room right now. So I’m trying to cope with that now because classes start Monday. It’s been a crazy week; hopefully things will start to improve.
Someone should totally do a mash up of Flo Rida’s Elevator and Jizzed in My Pants by the Lonely Island. I think it would quite awesome.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about…
Anyone know a DJ that could do that? Hmm…well if you do tell them about it and don’t forget about me if they do it. :)
So the other day I downloaded the Scott Pilgrim demo and completely loved it. It definitely feels like a classic old-school side-scrolling beat-em-up.
Normally I post my adventures as a Target employee on Facebook, but yesterday’s decent into CHAOS is way too much to contain within the character limit of a mere FB status. So here are yesterday’s target adventures…
Tax free weekend apparently makes crazy shit happen…like someone shitting all over the bathroom floor and then treading it throughout the store (which was promptly mopped up upon discovery). It makes a woman and her husband throw every pack of panties we have in the store on the ground because she cannot find her size and then leave it there. It also allows people to completely destroy every department in the freaking store and leave cartfulls of items that they don’t want in places like electronics and sporting goods and it makes families of French people go ape shit over superhero themed underwear. Best quote of the day was “Monkey Banana Rainbow icicles are the best.” (Don’t ask. I didn’t get it either. I just write what I remember.)Target’s slogan of the day, in my book, was SHIT HAPPENS.
If you witnessed any crazy tax free weekend stuff and took pics of it please share.
I was reading a blog entry today from this awesome blog I recently discovered called Old Grandma Hardcore which is a collection of videos, rants, and experiences shared with the awesome “Grandma”. I was reading an entry from back in March when I read something that was directly quoted from Grandma and I’ve got to say that it’s the smartest thing I have ever heard about these people who insist that gaming is bad.
They think video games are for kids. And if video games are only for kids, then they should be made for kids. And if video games are made for kids, they shouldn’t have any violence or vulgarity. So, if video games contain violence or vulgarity, they’re bad. Because of kids.
I have to say that I completely agree and it’s the simplest explanation of what’s really going on in the minds of these people that say video games are too violent for children. They don’t get the fact that video games are not just for kids anymore…honestly they never really were just for children! The average gamer is around 32 or so if I’m remembering my stats correctly and I’d have to say that I’m pretty sure they’re old enough to decide what’s too violent for themselves and what’s not.
This ongoing battle on the morals of gaming can go on forever unless the critics pick up a game and seriously play it. Politicians, judges, the freakin’ President all need to sit down and play Halo and follow the story, play Final Fantasy and follow the story, play anything and just see why gamers love their games.
Anywho…check out the blog. I’m going to end this rant early because I can already feel another one coming on.
Today things were a bit slow at the beginning of my shift so while sorting out the men’s underwear I decided to reorganize them from who I thought was the most awesome to the least awesome super hero. Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider Man, Flash. My Life Is Nerdy.
(My MLIN submission for today!)
and come up with nothing at all? Yeah, that happens to me a lot. :)
