WooHoo!! [15 Dec 2004|08:42pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Just took my last final this semester... I think I aced it. I'm so excited, I'm not going to use my brain at all for the next few weeks, until I start going full time that is.

is it time to 'chill' and play video games?.... I think it is. After Jack and Bobby of course.

is this the return of livejournal? don't know..... we'll see. I did learn to like writing in my composition class.

So despite the 10 minute Trinity death scene and the seemingly rushed conclusions of plotline... I thought this movie was excellent. More special effects than the first and second movie combined.

So what did everyone else think??

Had a blast at hexhive99's Halloween party!

hehe.. this is me-
what a hansome fella =P

You can see some more pics from the party here

So this big solar blast that hit earth today was a big bust in my opinion. I wanted systems to crash for days! YEAH CHAOS!!!! But instead the only thing that happened was that the secretary of states office's network went down for like 11 min. I was in there to get a copy of my trucks title...so I can sell it.
I'm sure more happend then just that, but I didn't see it so I don't care.

anyways... I just installed another 512mb stick of Crucial RAM (That makes the grand total up to 1310mb =D ) so I'm gonna check out the performance in game, hehe.

ok... They just turned most of the parking lot of the pontiac silverdome into a drive-in movie theatre. I went there last night to see Kill Bill. and then I was blown away.
This movie is amazing.... it's the first modern day Kung Fu movie done right.
I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but if you liked the Shogun assasin then you will LOVE this movie.
It has the blood powerfully spraying from villan's severed limbs/necks. Great!

I also loved the game of death scene with Uma.
this is Uma in Kill Bill :

And this is Bruce Lee in Game of Death :

And this is Bruce Lee in Game of Death fighting Kareem Abdul-Jabaar ! :

Thanks again Quentin, I lift my glass to you .

and if I didn't stress my point.... GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!! hehe

Oh, and by the way... drive-in's are great, we clam baked the car half way through the movie. The sound for the movie comes through a station on the radio, so it sounded pretty sweet on my system.

This movie looks awesome! I'm gonna go see it tonight.
Tarantino wanted to make a 4 hour movie, but no one would let him release it, so he made two... hence Kill Bill : Volume One.
Next one should be out shortly.

[ mood | good ]

So I've decided to come out of retirement and start posting again... yes, yes - hold the applause until the end please.

Since I posted last I have quit my job, got a new job painting apartments (much more money), moved, and purchased a new car....

this is not my actually car, but mine looks just like it exept it's black

I am planning on going to Ferris State University next fall and I will attempt to get my bachelor's degree in Heating and Cooling, at which point I will move up to Traverse City and work with my dad at his Heating and Cooling company... eventually I will take it over.

I think my life is heading in a good direction, very unexpected, but good.

so you can expect (hopefully) daily posts from me.

ok you can applaud now.... thank you, thank you *bows*

So i've noticed I don't post on here very much :-/ ..... oh well, deal with it.

I don't have anything to say really... I lead a boring life ;)

check out my buddies band... they play at the elbow room all the time.


*I made that graphic by the way (I know there are no pictures there now... lost that hosting space. ;) (photoshop RULES!) ... ( but not as much as ODOYLE RULES!!!)

[ mood | thankful ]

ok, this week has been the longest week I've had in a while.... dunno why exactly, just feels sooooo long. I can't wait for the weekend.

But above and beyond that I'm feeling thankful for the 15 or 20 minute drive to and from work for the next week, and for the ability to help friends (even ones that think they don't need it).

Oh, by the way, my friend who was shot is going to be fine :) It just grazed his finger (no broken bones or anything!). someone was helping him out on that one (don't believe me? check out the pics of his car, note the bullet hole...http://www.blindingrain.com/~jason/Images.htm ).

short and sweet... back to reading ;)

Harpos >:-( [14 Oct 2002|09:31am]
[ mood | shocked ]

I will now give you the run down of my first (and probably last) experience at Harpos

well, I was invited to go to a concert for a "local" band on Friday night.... Rob first thought it was at Clutch Cargos and I was like " ok, I hate CC, but it's somethin to do so lets go ". Then it turns out that the concert is actally at Harpos, I've never been there before Friday. So I go out there with Rob and his buddy named Dave. We get there and instantly I wanted to leave... I ran into like 6 REAL hillbilly kids I recognized from elementary school. Then after the first band comes on I realize " hmmm, this sounds like hate core music to me. " every other word was fuck and I think I caught some racial slurs in there somewhere too. Then the next band comes on and they open with Nazi marching music and the mosh pit starts marching around, hands in the air "hitler style". At that point I was wishing I was huge so I could go down and talk shyte without getting my azz kicked. so I endured it, just sitting there waiting for everyone to be ready to leave. When we finally left and got out to the car I turn around just in time to see this real drunk kid get hit by a grandam... the car keeps going then stops suddenly causing this drunk kid to fly onto the concrete and do about 4 rolls smacking his head each time.

what a fun night *sigh*

And now I just learned that a friend of mine caught a stray bullet to the hand and wrecked his car over the weekend... so I'm kinda in shock right now.

[ mood | satisfied ]

OK, so I can never think of a thing to type in here. Today I am copying and pasting a conversation I had with a buddy o mine... I'm number 1, d_tron is number 2 (read his post for today to get further insight into this convo. I just really think that this has some important points that should be out there.... So, I'm puttin it out there. Think I'm stupid?... fine. Don't think I'm stoopid? good :)

here it is :

1. here we go....

-The U.S. House of Representatives approves resolution giving President Bush authority to use force against Iraq.

2. Read my journal for today... This page pissed me the fsck off..

1. the senates backin him as of today too.

When you read my comment on your journal and wonder what it means, just know that you may not want to know....

2. But I really don't mind man... Speak your mind... I do want to know... That's why I posted this....

1. yeah i know... it's just that I think that all of these issues are a VERY distant second to the real issue of this world. And I believe in the grand scheme of things that these wars and whatnot are going to happen regardless, just because of greed, pride, etc (which tie into the actual issue). And I think that when it all comes down, the powerful of this world are the weak of the next.

Basically I believe that whatever happens has been planned and that these events are just miniscule peices of the grand puzzle that God has in place. although that is not to say that maybe they are supposed to be and will be overthrown, but it just seems that there are plenty of "tyrants" if you will to go around, so another one will just rise in its place.

In short, our life on earth is SO short in the grand scheme of things and to submerge your whole life worrying, and focusing on issues such as these, instead of persuing greater things is a shame.

just my opinion

2. I agree with that totally, don't get me wrong, but I cant just sit back and watch this happen, there is probably zero I can do about it.... Other than make people aware. I know in the end we win. But in the meantime there is too much fscked up stuff happening to tolerate and put up with. Somthings got to give

1. and I totally agree with that :)
it's just two sides of the same coin... and what you do to make people aware of this is important to this world, I just think that right now I have my minds eye trained on the next.

2. My philosophy is educate as many ignorant people as possible and hopefully they too will see the truth to this coin for this world and the next

[ mood | relaxed ]

Ok, well I don't really have much to say today (feeling kind of introverted). But it's been a while since I posted and I was goaded by Billi, hehe.

So I ended up going out to Dave and Busters Saturday night with some friends. Stuffed myself with crab at Joe's Crab Shack first, mmmmmm crustaceans. It was real fun tho, except Christi kept kicking my ass at Tekken :) Me and my buddy Rob went ticket crazy playin Skeeball and whatnot (skeeball, what a blast from the past) and I ended up walking out with a hat, a mug, and a little inflatable hammer (for my roomates kid) all bought with tickets, hehe.
And your right Billi, it's good but not as good as Gameworks. The only thing it has over Gameworks is that it has a full restaraunt in it.

I saw something very disturbing at Joe's Crab Shack tho (my first time there as well), it is just a regular resaraunt but when Wild wild west came on (yes, the one by Will Smith, ugh) the lights went out and disco lights came on and the whole staff formed a conga line throughout the restaraunt. I almost wanted to turn around and walk out. Scary stuff.....

So I think I'm gonna go eat some Boston market chicken now ;)

I'm gonna hit up Borders and get the Chronicles of Narnia (I love C. S. Lewis books) cuz I've never read them before but remember them from childhood. Anyone ever read these?

bye for now.

[ mood | grateful ]

So I'm working out at Romeo Engine Plant today and for the rest of the week. I've never been to Romeo, but it is WAY out in apple orchard country, LOL. I love it tho, fresh air, no pressure in the work. It takes me about the same amount of time to get here as it does to get to dearborn, and there is definitely less traffic(except for the apple pickers, hehe).
Dave and Busters is like 10 minutes from here too! (cool arcade/bar)

I think maybe I'll see if there will be an opening here soon.

Only bad point so far is that I ran into heavy traffic from an accident on Mound rd., when I passed the scene all I saw was a mangled 10 speed in the middle of the road :(
I've been praying for the rider.... sometimes I see things in this world that just make me so sad.

[ mood | crazy ]

yeah, so I don't really have anything to talk about today... just thought I'd write somethin. Today has been pretty uneventful so far, went out and bought the next book in the series I'm reading.
After I get off work I will be providing tech support for my grandma.... yea.

I'm feeling a little zaney or kooky or crazy today for some reason, hehe... I'll figure it out.

Oh yeah, anyone who is reading this... ADD ME AS A FRIEND, i feel lonely :)

[ mood | contemplative ]

So I was thinking about my subject for today on the way to work and I was gonna complain about the traffic..... then I got here and got some distressing news about a real good friend of mines father. So the traffic, as well as a lot of other things, just seems really trivial and unimportant. I'm very close to my father also, and it just got me thinking... I really don't know what I would do if I lost him. A few years ago he moved up north and I haven't really had time to see him much since then, being so far away and all, so I think if the worst did happen I would feel really really guilty about not being in his life much recently. I should really head up there more often because I think that family and friends are really the only things that matter in this world.
And then I read another friends post and now i'm really thinking of what I should be doing with this life... Is there a plan laid out since before birth for all of us? And are we ignoring that plan now? I don't know, maybe thinking about this so much just drives a person insane. I don't know what else to say right now... I'm just REALLY deep in thought.

I know God is watching us and he is trying to help us through.... problem is, I think we stopped truley hearing him long ago. I wish I could now.

Mike, just know that you and your father are the main part of my prayers right now and I know that you will make it through. If you fall, He will lift you up.

[ mood | drained ]

Me and my roomate just got back from taking his kid to the park. We just found a new one (granted, Kensington Metro park is right by us), but this park has like 4 huge play structures. It would be so much fun at his age, he's almost 3. I love kids, and watchin him have that much fun was awesome. The park was on a huge hill and u could see for miles, it made it look like there were actually a lot of tree's around here and we weren't ripping them all down. I guess heights can be decieving, hehe.

Man... I'm tired from chasing that kid around all night.

Ok, enough cheesiness, my Wendy's is here... time to eat.
