Back in school, so it's time to update

Well, it's been fun.....I made it back to class, and am in my first class of the quarter.....

Video Editing.....looks like loads of fun......and while I'm supposed to be learning the software, instead, I'm busy doing what I always do......

fucking around and multitasking, while trying to pick up the 'best parts' of what the prof. is saying.....

so, how's the new quarter treating me?, can't say, only been on for twenty-eight minutes.....

and I've been fucking around for seventy-five percent of that......so, it's more of the same, I'm spending spring quarter (thus far) simply dicking around.......oh well........

Hey, a blog....I think I remember this thing!!!

Well, this is my first post-apocalyptic update......and by post-apocalyptic, I mean "after winter quarter"

that being said, I narrowly escaped a dismal end at the clutches of the villainous administration of my college......

I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to my peeps......acid, kaze, ddrl, e-chan, nola, and the rest of the OS.......

as promised to Kaze (My dearest), I have promised not to cuss in this post........

and finally, a countdown clock to HP and the Order of the Phoenix.....

Top O' The mahrnin' to ye!

Okay, it's been WAY too long since I did an update, and since that time.......I've done a lot......

Got a haircut, and bought a wicked cool Cowboy Bebop shirt, got my gamecube (LOZ OOT rocks!)

been augmenting my Yu Gi Oh collection, and finally have enough for a decent deck (Nothing tournament level yet, but it'll get there)......

I've been playing some videogames, but right now, I'm in 'crunch week' (that last week before finals, to get everything done) so far, I'm only slightly behind schedule, so things should be fine......just gotta crack down tonight and tomorrow......

things should work out perfectly......got some studying to do, and some other stuff......

sorry about the lack of updates, but homework has been killing my ass........

heh, an Irish welcome, and only one swear word, what the fuck (whoops!) is wrong with me!

next update (which could be in just a few hours).........I'll start givin' a shout out to my homies! :D heh......

Better, Stronger, Faster, Little, Yellow, Different

The title really says it all......

I'm back on my regular system again, which is good news, but it had two effects.......

one: The drain on my wallet, the goddamned power supply was $40

two: I now have a pounding headache

but all is well again, and I finally have access, once again to all my files...........Especially all my porn......

I like my porn, I missed my porn.....
PS2s and PS2s

I'm stuck in English Class once again, offering my apologies for the lag in between updates.....

I once again faked my way through another lesson, purely by the skin of my teeth, I'm almost becoming a master at it.....heh....

We're writing topic and Primary Sentences (that's where the 'other' PS2 comes into play) and once again, I fiddlefucked my way into a convincing arguement......I rule!

oh well.....

my time has been consumed by the two new games I mentioned in my last update, and let me say, that the both of them are FUCKIN' SWEET!!!

heh, Wild Arms 3 just has me floored.......the graphics, gameplay, and story all combine to make a wonderful roleplaying experience......nothing bothers me, except for the lack of voice acting, a virtual MUST for anything to be successful nowadays......

it's not that I can't appreciate an oldschool style game, but people come to expect certain things to occur during the evolution of a system and it's software, and this one would've benefitted greatly from it.....as it stands, It's still a must-have, however, I drop it one point (from ten to nine) based on the fact that it contains no VA, other than that, based on my initial play (Which is only about ten hours), It's 100% solid.....

Taichi's final rating: 9 out of 10, A

I didn't get around to playing Dark Cloud 2 until last night, and allow me to say, it is a VAST improvement over the first.......don't get me wrong, the first was INCREDIBLE, but the second blows it COMPLETELY out of the fucking water, and into the next state!, graphics, gameplay, voice acting, you name it, they got ya covered......

everything you loved about the original is intact and improved, and everything you HATED was done away with......if you were put off by the first, I highly suggest you look into the second......the story is top-notch, and the graphics are unbelievable.......

I can't say enough good about 'em, go out and rent 'em, and I'm sure you'll wanna own 'em for yourself!

Taichi's final rating: 9 1/2 out of 10 A+

Late update....Beer, and Videogames

Anybody who knew me before this Blog, knows that I am not a drinker.......but yesterday was so hectic, a good beer was just what I needed.....

first, I rolled over (I Had slept til past noon) and found my friend there....."Are you ready?" clearly I wasn't......I was only wearing underwear, and hadn't had a shower yet.....

so, I showered, and dressed, and we headed out the door.......we hadda go to Circuit City first, so I could return a Modem, then we went and finally saw "Old School" great flick, btw......

hung out at the mall, then went and ate Chinese (I love chinese!), returned home, and began working on my computer (I'm currently on my backup system, because the power source in my regular system blew up) no luck, we couldn't do anything.....

then the one friend left (He had work), and two other friends came by.....at this point I had more money so we went to cash the check I had, then we went to Burger King, then we went and got booze, then we went to Wal-Mart, where I picked up Dark Cloud 2 and Wild ARMS 3......

then we went to the one friend's house, and got shitfaced playing a game called 'asshole'

needless to say, I'm pretty worn out right now........no longer shitfaced, and I didn't get hungover, but at least in my stupor I managed to roll over this morning (Saturday) and watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Ultimate Muscle......

Won't you be my neighbor?

I really didn't wanna post anything about it, but felt I hadda.......

I know I'm really late in doing so, but that's because I didn't want it to be true.......

Today, Mr. Rogers, of "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" On PBS died of stomach cancer........he was 72, he will be sorely missed by me.......I remember the picturesque scene in the opening, that showed the model railroad homes........I wished I could live in a little plastic house, and get my mail from Mr. McFeely (What a strange name for a mailman)

I remember how strange it was that he had two pairs of shoes, and how he changed them as soon as he came home......and how an old man played with toys........and lived alone.....

but I also remember his gentle voice, and the fact that he always cared, and loved children........the world lost a good man today, who saw said world in a different light, even at 72, he saw the world, through the eyes of a child, and that is a rare gift nowadays........he will be missed, at least by me.......I hope he didn't suffer.......
Alas, it's not to be

Feh.....I don't get to go to the movies, you'd think it'd be a trivial thing, but I need SOMETHING to unwind......

it's okay, I'll see it eventually, but damn, why do I hafta get blown off without even knowing I was.....

I could've made better plans If I'd fuckin' known before 7:00 in the evening, now I'm fucked.......

oh well........I'll get over it.....
Sleep and other myths

Well, I finally woke up.....bluh.......my head's still swimming......I'm s'posed to go out with a friend later, and see the new Will Ferrel movie "Old School", I'll letcha know how it goes.......

not much new, it's a slow day.....my dog's beating the shit out of my dad......it's kinda funny......but nothin'gs really new today........feh.......

maybe I should go back to bed.........

Son of Cheese

I don't hate Cheese, I just hate that my school puts it on everything........

that being said, I'm home again......(Shouldn't I be sleeping?) well, soon enough I will......however, I hadda get something to eat first........and what did I choose?, the only thing I could find.........Macaroni and Cheese.....

oh the irony.......

CHEESE! IT'S WHAT'S FOR DINNER!!!, oh...wait.....CHEESE! THE OTHER WHITE MEAT!!!......that's not right.......BEHOLD, THE POWER OF CHEESE!!!!

on another note, Galv, I'm curious, what the FUCK is this 'free thing' you keep talking about?????
Your singalong privleges have been revoked

so, I'm sitting in Accounting class, pretending to be interested, yet bored out of my fucking skull......however I pay JUST enough attention to know partially what is going on.....so I can pretend that I am taking part in classroom discussion.......however, I'm really thinking how badly I wanna do ANYTHING but accounting.....

a root canal would be more fun at this juncture......okay, so the class is technically over, but I still have that fucking test I mentioned, and yet another one right after that......

the point I'm trying to make, however relates to Accounting II......I'm answering all the teacher's questions, and asking those of my own, the students all look up to me, but I'm really so bored, that I have nothing better to do.....this is why they look up to me....I'm such a fucking douchebag......

I'm trying to skate through this shit......I really need to pass this class, but the formulas are just greek to me.....ghaah, my brother only hadda take ONE accounting class, and he had the same fucking major as me......why am I stuck with 2?

fuck me........oh well.......

I'm skipping out on Desktop Publishing today, to make room for the two fucking tests, just thought you oughtta know.....

and if my DP Prof. is reading this, I'm sorry, but I'm honest.......
Everything's better with cheese

I was just at my college's lunchcounter, I had two bucks, and some change.....
I knew I'd need some caffeine if I wanted to stay awake for my next class, so I saved a buck for a soda from the machine.....leftover, I had a buck eighty......not too shabby, if you're in the vicinity of a seven eleven, or other similar convenience mart, not so here...my college is so fucking far from civilization, that they can gouge your fucking eyes out with their prices, and people begrudgingly accept it.....so, after paying a dollar seventy five for some Nachos (FOR FUCKING NACHOS) and cheese, I sat down to enjoy them......

it dawned on me only then that the shit was so fucking expensive that I could've rented a video for that kind of money, Jesus Christ, I give them enough fucking money to feed a small nation, what the fuck are they doing with my money?

Cheese......everything on their menu can be had with cheese, it seems the school has a surplus of it......my financial aid pays for cheese....nachos and cheese, chicken and cheese, cauliflower with cheese, FUCKING CHEESE STICKS WITH CHEESE!!!, and what do they do with all this fucking cheese?, they charge me a buck seventy five for stale tortillas, and a half pint of molten cheese food product......

but I digress......maybe I can convince them to accept my pell grant, or liver.......but they'd just sell it for more goddamned cheese...
College Life

So, I'm sitting in my first class of the day, the teacher, is a pretty nice guy, and he puts up marginally with my skipping, and tardiness....I'm stealing a couple minutes away from my expensive education, to plunk away on a keyboard, so that you, my reading public, can get a taste of what I'm doing.....

the class is some form of English thing......dunno what exactly, I believe Exposition and Research.....we're writing research papers is all I know......

we were free to pick our topics, but due to the dismal display I gave on my last term paper, regarding the Lord of the Rings, I decided to swtich to a more bland topic, with a lot more substance, so I'd have an easier time finding information.....so, I got shoehorned (literally at the last minute) into the Fast Food controversy......such is the life of a slacker fuckoff college student.....

it's weird, because people look up to me, I guess I push just the right buttons, and kiss the right asses.......but they claim it's that I ask the right questions.......I, see it differently however......I see it as a metaphor for sucking dick........

I halfway resent the way the other students look up to me, like I'm some kinda fuckin' role model......shows what a positive outlook can give you.....truth is, my grades aren't THAT good.....

I'm gonna really hafta kiss some ass to pass Accounting II, which is a clusterfuck of epic proportions......I'm already past due on one test, and I'm only marginally passing it, add to that the fact that I'm already on financial aid probation from the last quarter, and it's a recipe for complete armafuckingeddon........

that being said, I do have luck on my side......there's a law, called the Taichi Formula that allows me to circumvent disaster, but only when it reaches critical mass.......see my club forum at animenation for more details.....

anyway, that's my day so far, add to it, the fact that I'm running on less than an hour's worth of sleep (Cramming for that fuckin' accounting test) and you have one weary blogger today.....

more updates as they arise........
We're gonna carry that weight.....

SPOILERS (For all two of you, who haven't seen the finale of CB)

Every time I watch Cowboy Bebop's infamous twenty-sixth episode, I first tear up like a bitch, afterwards, I find myself contemplating the meaning of the finale......

I firmly believe that the Protagonist, Spike, did, in fact, NOT die........I have several reasons to back this up.......the main point being that only one star (as laughing bull predicted) burned out......it is not clear (at least to me) whose star this really is.......another point, is that Spike told Faye that he did not intend to die, but to find out if he's really alive........this is trivial, in fact, I find it only a minor detail in supporting my claim......suffice it to say, I have debated this fact so long, that this update is little more than a reaffirmation of my stand.......

I guess it's based on interpretation, most fans take it at face value, but the very nature of the show indicates that you should NEVER take anything about the show at face value.......this is just another one of those things........

think of it what you will, whether he lived or died, it was STILL an excellent, and NOT TO BE MISSED series......sure, it's got it's flaws, and is a scant 26 episodes, but what it accomplishes is nothing short of fucking brilliant........

Besides, I still blame everything on the woman........
