Time for an Upgrayedd

Yes, I have been drinking. Yes, I'm probably an alcoholic. What's it to ya?

Nothing all that interesting to report in the last few days. Hopefully I'll be stumbling into some extra cash at some point soon, but nothing confirmed. At the very least I'll be able to help out a buddy. That's all you get to know, as I am admittedly shady.

I saw Idiocracy last night and let me tell you, awesome movie. I had heard some good reviews a while ago and they were whole heartedly confirmed. Mike Judge is awesome, period. I have never disliked anything by him and he didn't disappoint with this one. It's a great look at the flaws within society without being preachy or obnoxious. Watch it, enjoy it. I promise you will care who's ass it is and why it is farting.

In other news...there is no other news really.

Super Bowl is on Sunday. I am quite excited. Go Giants beat the piss out of the Patriots just because everyone thinks you don't belong there.

Thanks again...seeya later.

Where the heart is, also the bed

Hey you,

So here I am and I'm contemplating what the hell it is that I should do with my life and I kinda just want things like this to happen. If I could spend my days playing/reviewing video games and making comics I'd be a very happy boy. I mean, I guess I could do that but it wouldn't make me nearly as much money as the PA guys. To be fair, I'm sure they wallowed around in the muck of extreme poverty for a while when they were trying to kick their site off.

I don't know, I wouldn't mind throwing myself into something even if it was pretty much destined to fail except for the fact that I'm trying to save up money right now for all the random shit I want to do. So I need time and money to do this shit. Right now I have some money but no goddamn time. I could quit my job but then I'd have no money. So what I need to do is win the lottery...ooooor make a living doing something I want to do.


1) Write, time that you aren't at work or sleeping. During the week this is ~ 6 hours a day. Shit, I work more hours than I'm awake during the week, that kinda blows.

2) Quit job and see if you can hack it as a real writer. If you fail you're fucked and back to a shitty office job with the knowledge that you blew your chance to do what you want to do. But hell at least you tried right?

3) Win lottery/get hit by rich drunk guy/find box of money (credit to Jim for this one)/get sugar mama/join the lucrative pro ping pong circuit and beat those Asian guys.


Saw No Country for Old Men a few days ago. Awesome movie, I highly suggest seeing it. It has one of the most terrifying villains I've ever encountered. Coen bros. hit their mark again. Cheers to them.

Hopefully I'll get some reading done today. That'll be nice, yeah, nice. Got so many books I'm in the middle of, it'll be good to finish something soon.

Peace blogosphere.

Let's try this again

Now that I will have to completely start advertising this again I figured what the hell, lets give this blog another shot. This isn't going to be some big, adventurous blog that everyone will come to so they can have a glimpse into the life of someone living life to its fullest potential or any bullshit like that. Most likely it will be a place where I plot and scheme and complain and sometimes stop making sense. Likely, it'll be really boring for anyone but me, but since it'll be mostly for me I really don't give a rat's ass.

First order of business is to come up with some way to make my life not miserable. A list, I think, is in order:

1) Get a job you don't hate - This is the big one because the job you have now is slowly devouring your soul.

2) Start writing more - Hence the blog. I want to start up some new exercises/projects in writing. We'll see how that goes, hopefully I don't get started then quit halfway through like I do with everything else.

3) Get that comic review site up and running - Ben I hope you're reading this. We really need to do that man. It'll be easy and fun. Just need someone to design the site for us I guess. We should perhaps talk to Bill about this as it's his damn job to create and maintain websites.

4) Complete quitting smoking - Good start so far, have to keep it going.

5) Start a workout regimen that I can actually stick to - When I can actually breathe again because of the effects of #4, sports would be a good way to do this.

6) Learn more about the world around you - Stumbled onto Wikiversity today, which I had never heard of before but is an awesome idea.

7) Get something published - Why not? I've passed the age where I can make the excuse that I'm too young to get anything done. Need to work on what I've got and where it can go and write something that's worth a damn.

God, look at all this crap, there's more but I'll probably just depress myself. Maybe I'll wade into that later.

It's good to be back. I know you've all missed me...God, I'm so lame I need to imagine that I have internet friends.

Bye for now my faithful followers.
