Man, I hope this becomes a reality.

Animal CRACK-ing

Because it's crack. Crack on the Wii.

Jen is addicted
. I didn't expect it. I didn't know. She's a fishing fiend and writes letters to the town residents. We even keep in touch via letters through the town postal service.

I don't know what to do... because I'm becoming addicted again too. Oh, I kicked the habit with Animal Crossing Wild World... but I have since then re-visited my poor town, (twitch) picked all the weeds, written letters of apol-(twitch)(twitch)-ogy to the residents, and we're working on celebrating "Yay Day" this coming Sunday. (twitch) On the Wii, our lovely town is anticipating the Flea Market this weekend too. All the town is in a twitter (twitch)...

...wait. What's that on my game shelf? OH! It's the original Animal Crossing for the GameCube. I haven't played that in so (twitch)(twitch)(twitch) long. I wonder how that town is doing? Probably filled with weeds and most of the original residents have probably moved away. But it (twitch)(twitch) can be a good town again. Yes... a good town. Must make it a good town again!

[monotone] You should all buy this game. Come visit our town. We'll have illustrious minstrel K.K. Slider visiting Saturday at 8:00pm. Please. Come join us. Join us.

In all honesty though, it's a real fun game if like that sort of "world creator/Sims" game. And, unlike the Sims, Animal Crossing is going on even when the game is not being played and the power is off.

Oh Oh Oh... It's magic... you know...

So this Saturday I was asked to perform some magic at my friend Nancy's 20th Birthday party (she's the girlfriend of my good friend Eric). I came in expecting to do some strolling magic while people did other things... bada bing... 45 minutes later take off (did I mention that I was really sick that day and could barely talk without coughing my head off), but the party was quite dull when I got there.

So three beers and an two hours later I finish (barely any coughing and with only one mistake), and everyone's up and chatting and doing party things. I mean I really held their attention for a LONG time. And when I get some of the tricks I had REALLY have been wanting to perform, it'll be a stellar show.

I did a lot of mentalism and a few card tricks... but it was (as is per usual) the small tricks that "killed em". I did a bubble trick, and they really liked that one, and the mentalism book trick was a real winner too.

Afterwards, Eric took me aside and told me that he was really happy with the performance and that I did a great job. Nancy was talking all night about my illusions.

She also requested that next year I do a fire/money trick. She told me I have a year to practice.


On another note, I got ANIMAL CROSSING: CITY FOLK on Sunday and Jen played a bit after I did... and she's interested in playing it some more. That's cool. I also asked if she would be interested in doing a review with me this week and she agreed to that too. That's cool.

I'm still sick and STILL COUGHING but I am taking medication. And the medication makes my head not feel so stuffed up, but I am still hacking and coughing.


But I have my Animal Crossing.

Thanks to you all

I'm very lucky to have friends like you who care. You are all the best.

Shuuki and I are doing more "Two Poor Sods" video game videos so watch for those here. If you haven't seen the ones we did, visit the Ludus Challenge YouTube site HERE.

Anyways, here's some good tunes from Gnarls Barkley

I don't have much to say.

My mom just found out last night that she has uterus cancer and will need a hysterectomy in December.

This just as she's recovering from a second bout of breast cancer.

The Postal Service

Indy rock. Not for everyone, but I like it.

It's different. That's good. I'm tired of cookie-cutter music.

The same guy who is the singer in the band "Death Cab For Cutie" is the singer here too. In fact, I like "Death Cab For Cutie" too. I'll put a video/song at the end here too.

The videos aren't so important as is the music. So feel free to play them and go about your business while it plays.

Just a few words about someone other than me

Ok, I just felt like writing this while it's still in my head.

I have the most wonderful wife in he world. I don't know what I did in my life to deserve someone like her. It must have been in another life because I'm truly blessed. I have never known someone as selfless as her. She puts me as her #1 priority for some odd reason, and I really shouldn't be... but she just cares that much.

She's hard working, smart (well, brilliant actually), beautiful, honest (as the day is long), and modest. She's also really funny when you least expect it. When she loves, it's unconditionally.

I completely don't deserve her. I have known her since she was 17, and she has loved me ever since. I mean, can you imagine seeing someone and knowing that you were going to marry them? Even when I dated other girls, she always held out. When I went to Florida to be with someone... she always had hope.

And ever since I came back, she has made me feel like I'm someone special. She is amazing.

We have small quarrels. I don't think we have actually fought in quite some time. I think that's a part of marriage... to know how your partner works and to understand their ways. She accepts me when I'm an ass and when I'm not. She really wants to make our marriage work, and I do too. Because of her.

I can only hope that I can give her the love and affection she deserves. She's really one of a kind and those of you who know her (well, I'm assuming if you know me then you know her) know how she is.

I mean, I could tell her that I wanted to become a pro-wrestler and she would support me. And I wish that were a joke... but it's not. It's funny... but very true.

Sometimes I wish I could empathize with television and TV shows that show the husband being oppressed by his dominant wife. But it just won't ever happen. She lets me game with friends, she lets me have space when I desire it, she takes care of all of our finances... and she asks for nothing in return except for my love.

How did I luck out?

Music is your soul

Was reading "High Fidelity" (the book) and was amazed at how close to the book they made the movie.

Anyways, hasn't been a while since I posted "favorite" things... and since that's what they do in High Fidelity...

Top 5 Favorite Albums (in no particular order)
1) These are albums you can listen to front to back
2) They must be albums you have been listening to for at least 3 years.
3) These are not just good albums that you love, but albums that you come back to over and over and over again.
4) These are albums that are a part of you. That tell a story about a part of your life.

* AJA - Steely Dan
* Strange Angels - Laurie Anderson
* Homogenic - Bjork
* God Shuffled His Feet - Crash Test Dummies

What are yours? Share.

It's a nut...

Yeah. This actually went out on TVs across America.

Someone should have done something to let SONY know that it sucked. WATCH THIS MOVIE! And put those headphones on... it's not kid-friendly.

November 4, 2008

So this is how I voted. I put a short bit about what the bill was about... or what I thought about the bill and why I voted that way.

If you have a question or would like to ask why I voted a specific way, feel free to post here.

All my voting was done ignoring the ads on TV and done from my own research. I am currently a registered Republican (soon to be registered Independent) and so I could care less about 'Republicans' or 'Democrats' as I vote for the best person and not with a 'party'.

I will [u]never[/u] (however) vote "Green" and I plan on making the biggest "carbon footprint" I can until this term is out of fashion to use. Eff-off to all you "greenies".

47, 49, and 54 were lumped together in a big push "against"... but I think (having worked for many unions in my time) that 47 SHOULD be passed. I hated paying Union fees and having them breathing down my neck as to how "well" I was performing... "slow down... you make everyone else look bad" kinda thing... which WAS said to me twice.


President - Obama
Senator - Udall
Congress - Bidlack
District 10 - Whitley
District 16 - Flores
Dist. Atty. - May
All Judges - No (I always vote 'no' on all the Judges)

46 - No (Discrimination)
47 - Yes (people shouldn't be FORCED into Unions)
48 - No (People are not people at conception. Puh-lease! They are a mass of cells.)
49 - No (Payroll deductions)
50 - No (gambling)
51 - No (Tax increase... no)
52 - No
53 - No (Businesses can choose for themselves thank you very much!)
54 - No (Campaign Contributions)
55 - Yes (Cause to fire someone)
56 - No (health care... once again, these are big people)
57 - No (safe workplace... SHEESH!)
58 - No (tax increase)
59 - No (government power)
L - No (people should have some time under their belts... so no to lowering ages to 21)
M - Yes (Consider law outdated)
N - Yes (Consider law outdated)
O - No (No, bills should be difficult to create. Leave the amount of signatures needed as is)
1A - No (Tax increase)
200 - Against (billing)
201 - Against (payments)
3E - No (tax increase)

My good friend Jonathan "GameJew" Mann posts this from California.

These people make me sad for the world. Why can't people just love? Why is there so much intolerance? This and people who are close-minded really have been ruining my week.
