I'm sure that everyone has heard U2's Sunday Bloody Sunday. Well, here someone clipped press conferences and presidential debates and addresses to make George W. Bush sing Sunday Bloody Sunday.

You don't have to be political to enjoy this one, folks.

Vid-A-Day - Final Fantasy 8 vid to David Bowie



This is a Final Fantasy 8 video that was done to Within You, a David Bowie song from Labyrinth. Very awesome.

Applications and Whatnot

Well, went in yesterday and put in applications EVERYWHERE. Called today for a job, but they asked that I please call back within the month because they should have an opening soon. I'm not brave enough yet to put applications in for webmaster, though I could do it at home and make twice as much as I normally would, but I'm not quite confident enough in my abilities. As soon as I finish my resume, I could get a job at another help desk. Bah.

School.

Yay

Have gotten an email back from Meghan, or rather, Tibby, as she's changing her name. I'm so happy. Words cannot describe.

Vid-A-Day - So You Think You Can Dance: Jordan Sparks



This dance is so amazing. In the show they said that the dance was about the last night that the couple had together before he went to war. It makes me want to cry, but it's so beautiful.

:57-1:00 = OMG

OBSESSING

Okay, so, I'm obsessing, and I need to calm down. I can't quit being antsy. In class now trying to make an American flag with tables. Ick. Made a French flag, though. :)

Either way, want to leave class a little early. Yuck. Feel icky. Like I said, water pump is broken at the house, so, ya.

Try it, you'll like it...

Okay, so, I havea couple of games that some of you may be interested in. They are as follows:

For the pirate at heart:

This is Pirates: Legend of Black Kat. I bought it at GameStop for a mere $2.99. Very cheap. Since it was cheap, I of course, was expecting some cheap thrills. As it turns out, it's a lot of fun. The funny thing is, I bought it with the intention of playing it myself, but Anthony is now an addict. He had ten minutes before we had to leave so he could get to work on time and he chose to use that ten minutes to play this game. Odd how that sort of thing works out.

You go through the game as a girl, which is a fun thing. I like that you don't have the option to have a male character, and it's nice that there is more than a few games that are like that now [(that aren't Barbie or Bratz related, of course) Tomb Raider, obviously (all but Angel of Darkness, but we don't talk about that one, do we?), Beyond Good & Evil, American McGee's Alice, BloodRayne, Oni, etc.], not that I'm saying that I hate men or think that they shouldn't have games with males as the only main characters, just that it's nice that there is a sort of balance now than there was a few years ago. Anyway.



For the Alyss fan:

Here we have CardSoldierWars, which is an online, 2d, browser based MMO game, based on Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Redd, two of my favourite books. The game is confusing at first, where you start out with forums and running your mouse all over the screen to look for that hand () so you know where you can go. After you learn the ropes, though, it becomes a lot of fun. The only issue I saw with it was that you can only do so much a day. There is a Bejeweled type game that you can only send your score 5 or 6 times a day to get money. You can only make so many card soldiers work a day and for so long, etc. Though, since it's still in beta, I have high hopes for it yet.
More to come.

Worrying Want and Wonder

Well, since yesterday I have been really nervous. I am antsy.
I had this really weird dream last night. I was in the new house and the people who lived there were me, Darin and Becky, and Chuck. I was doing dishes when Becky asked why. I just mentioned off-hand that I live here too, so, why not? Darin made me put the dishes down and said, "come on, we're leaving." Chuck went out first, and then Darin, so I followed.
Don't quite know what it means. Could just be some fear that someone in the new house will act like them, I guess.
Eitherway, for the first time in a long time I have stopped having night terrors. It's odd.
Anyway, it's lab time. Ten minutes down, eight hours and fifty minutes to go...

Vid-A-Day - Tenacious D



This is Master Exploder, which was the song that JB dreamt about on their way to steal the Pick Of Destiny.

His face at 2:04-2:08. XD

Have fun with this one.

Also, KG looks and sounds like Boy George half-way through the video. :)

Pudgy Gal of the Month - Beth Ditto


This is Beth Ditto. She's the singer in the indie rock band, The Gossip. There was an interview with her just recently where she explains why she thinks (almost) everyone is bent on being a size 0.

It's funny, she's actually right around the same size I am and she's drop dead gorgeous.

Lil and Meghan Tibby

I saw them today at the mall. I was really scared. I'm so glad they talked to me, but I'm afraid that I really upset Lil. Meghan Tibby is as tall as I am and thin as a rail. Lil is the same beautiful person. I didn't see David, but I hope he's well. I miss them. I hope we can all talk again soon.

Retro Game - Juilliard Music Adventure

Juilliard Music Adventure BoxWell, it isn't too retro. Circa 1995. :D

This was a game that I played a lot when I was a kid of eight or nine. It is a great teacher for kids and adults alike interested in learning about orchestra.

I can't wait to own it again, but since it is only being reproduced for schooling, it's expensive (between $28 and $45) and can only be found online.

The story line in this game is better than most of the ones that come out nowadays.

Gnoise steals all of the music and entraps the queen so you have to go around the castle solving musical puzzles to free the queendom!!!

Vid-A-Day - Freezepop



Alright, so, most of you know who Freezepop is because of Guitar Hero II where Less Talk More Rokk was available.

This is another one of Freezepop's songs called Stakeout.

Enjoy.

Vid-A-Day - Dan Le Sac VS Scroobis Pip



Here I give you Thou Shalt Always Kill, one of my favourite songs, thanks to Sean. :)

One down, one to go...

Well, one of the cats is back. Noir. She was outside. When I thought she was afraid to go outside, I was wrong. It turns out she's just afraid of the noise the front door makes. She went out the window, which is where I had to let her in. Either way, she's back, one more cat to go.

Also, I'm guessing that she's pregnant because when she disappeared she was in heat, and now she isn't. That, and she has been eating a lot since last night.

Have homework in HTML. Icky. Stupid. Case files. Yuck.

My Cats are Gone.

I haven't seen them in four days.
Darin says that they ran away.
They were too afraid to go outside.
I hope they're okay.
I know I didn't spend a lot of time with them, but they were my comfort when I was alone. They're only two years old.
I'm really sad.
I can't explain it...
I couldn't take them with me when I move... but I would have if I would have known that they would just disappear.
I think someone knows.

I keep having thoughts that maybe Darin or Becky made them go out. Or maybe my grandma took them somewhere. Gave them away.

I would just like to know.

I really am sorry ...

... that things can't be so simple. I really wish all of the problems and hardships you suffer would just disappear. I would trade my comfort for your pain in hopes of soothing your mind and emotions. I wasn't upset with you. I really wasn't. I'd love to talk to you about it, sometime. We are similar (though not duplicates), we have had the same experiences, and overall, I consider us sisters. Though we may have had a few bouts of troubled times, I still feel connected to you, on a deep level. I'm sorry for the pain that I have caused you. I'm sorry if I have made you feel unwanted or swindled, because that was never my intention. I hope you know that this is meant for you. I try my hardest to talk to you when I can though it is awfully difficult right now. Perhaps soon we can meet. Perhaps.

It's Cancer.

Got the results back from his biopsy. He's going to have to have a quarter of his lung removed. My mom is really worried. They said they caught it early enough that he'll be fine, but he'll be laid up for a few months.

In other news, I'm still thinking about that house....

Anthony got his stimulus check in the mail today. His is $413, mine is going to be about a hundred less.

Paid the bank off today. :)

Went grocery shopping for the first time in almost four months. Been getting tired of ramen.

BTW - New pictures - http://hexidecimalhack.deviantart.com/



Not that this is a good thing to be writing about but...

Bitch-shit-ton of new deviations, thx.

tired hot and angry

Either way, we have found a fantastic house. Three bedroom, $800 a month. An entertainment house, which will be nice. I still haven't found a job, but with the school work load, I think it's okay until I get used to the stress.

Also, my arm has begun to heal. Sutures are out and the scars from them are fading.


Well, I'm kind of ticked at the whole no-one-likes-something-until-i-do-and-then-it's-their-favourite-thing-ever sort-of thing. PISSING me OFF like NOBODY'S business. I hate having to re-think who I am anytime I find out that there is a carbon copy two streets over. It's gotten to the point that I don't want to tell anyone what I like or enjoy or do in my spare time because as soon as someone asks I start to feel sick to my stomach. I hate feeling this way. I almost want to move out of state and start over. Get a new house, new job, new school, new favourite book and movie (which will be hard because right now they are the same thing), new religion, new name, etc.

It's the same thing with my pictures. It's one of those things that anytime I go somewhere with the intention of taking pictures, someone either whips out their digital camera and takes the same picture I just took because it was a good idea, or they ask to use my camera to take the same picture I just took because it was a good idea and they want credit. It makes me think about how unoriginal it is to be unoriginal. About how in trying not to conform, I'm conforming to the non-conformist ways. About how being different is exactly like everyone else and how there is nothing I can do about it. It makes me really upset to realize that everything that I've put my heart into is starting to seem so shallow, hollow, and transparent. Everything that I find artistic has already been done, it's already been thought about, and there's photographic proof. I just want to go someplace where I can feel like a photographer again, and not just some kid with a camera.

Brb, emo time.
