Today’s observation: Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a pigeon with a limp.

Today’s observation: I don’t think I want to hang out with the games industry anymore.

If I could just make my own games I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have anything to complain about anymore.

I still think Diglett has a protruding pink mouth

There’s a lot of things I don’t give a hoot about, but I love discussing them with people. I’d like to say that I enjoy discussing politics with similarly cynical people, but, well, no, I don’t. It’s an exercise in losing my will to live. What I do enjoy discussing, however, is Pokémon! With select people, of course. With any old Tom, Dick or Harry it also becomes an exercise in losing my will to live. I do not care to discuss the tournament rules of Pokémon battling, buddy, just give me a debate about why people think Gardevoir is so attractive and then I can get my Freudian ball rolling.

Namely, something I was discussing recently was the leakage of, well, everything from the new games Black & White. All one hundred and fifty something of the new creatures? Everyone knows what they are now, apparently! I was shown this little creature…

… and I was rather… offput by it.

It’s hard not to make an insensitive celebrity death joke here

Y’know, I was always under the impression that musicians who leave a legacy always die in a manner befitting of their final days. Jimi Hendrix choked on his vomit because he was drugged on all kinds of stuff, Elvis died on the crapper due to the decay of his health, and I just read that a member of ELO died recently.

By being hit with a bale of hay.


Mind you, it was allegedly a wonkin’ huge bale of hay, it wasn’t like it was just some straws that popped his clogs, but still not a good way to go. My condolences.

Machete vs. Scorcher

I watched Tropic Thunder with the folks. Padre was under the mistaken belief that it would be the perfect movie for mother to watch. Cue an opening scene where people are blown up, a man’s hands are reduced to charred stumps, and all manner of grotesque imagery. Still, I don’t think it was quite as all-around shocking to her as, say, Team America: World Police. Great wisdom on picking that one, father!

Wouldn’t it be hilarious if that previous entry was the last one ever?

Just been busy with work lately, so I wouldn’t be surprised if August slips us by without a single update. As always I’ve got a fair few ideas of stuff I want to do, it’s more just a matter of having the time and the motivation to go ahead and do it – two things work does a fantastic job of sapping out of me. I’m almost thinking it might just save us all a bit of heartache if I put the site on hiatus (as in an official hiatus, not one of my unofficial “holy shit I forgot about the website for like six weeks, what am I gonna do?!” hiatuses) and come back when I’ve got something to show. I mean, it’s not like I have much to blog about either!

Well, I did watch Dark Angel a few days ago.

Cause of death: Stabbed by a balloon

How did I manage to cut myself on a fucking ketchup bottle? Honest to god, I’ve got a feeling my purpose in life is just to find the bluntest objects in existence and then find a way to injure myself with them.

There are times, especially when I don’t watch the news, where every day feels the same and when I notice it my daily life almost feels like some kind of unbelievably boring time loop. Like Groundhog Day, except I’m making vain comparisons to a film I haven’t even seen. It really doesn’t help that it seems for weeks, if not months, Yahoo! Mail has had the same news piece about “South Africa denied dream start by Mexico” in its top stories box. For weeks. I think they sometimes changed the country name, but it otherwise did a fantastic job of feeling trapped in a time anomaly while simultaneously remaining aware that the few remaining days of the year are just slipping by like plastic bags in the wind. Thanks a lot, Yahoo! News.

An ample amount of observations

Saturday, July 31, 2010 at 2:42 pm Comments (1)

Today’s observation: I have only just discovered that the diarrhoea song actually goes “it’s hot and it’s runny and it’s not very funny.” For all my life it was “and it’s very very funny.” Kind of explains a lot about myself.

Today’s lingual observation: Man, what’s up with the word diarrhoea? It’s already an awkward word, but the British spelling adds that totally superfluous O that just makes it look even more repulsive.

Today’s less amusing observation: Just when I think I can’t hate the internet more than I do already do…

Who wants to hear the nags of an indecisive webmaster?

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 11:50 pm Comments Off on Who wants to hear the nags of an indecisive webmaster?

Haven’t been up to much at all lately, I’m afraid. Life is mildly busy – mildly busy in the sense that I have stuff to do, even though said stuff is not exactly interesting, productive or even worth bothering with, but I guess just doing it is better than raising a stink about the issue. I suppose saying life is mildly boring would’ve been more accurate. My current events have been mildly boring. Perhaps on the verge of moderately boring!
