Well, it truly has been a while. I started playing Counter-Strike: Source more often now, but I also got into a new MMORPG called Atlantica Online, all thanks to Noir. Haha. She always plays it, got me interested, so I decided to take a gander. I tried it out and wow, I was impressed. It's a pretty good game, especially the fact that it's free.
Anyways, I thought I lost all my skills on Counter-Strike: Source. Boy, was I ever wrong. I played for a day, started feeling comfortable. Played the second day and was owning people. Third day, my friends that are part of a clan called PLC (Parking Lot Crew), who have their own server, made me an admin.
I also recently got Adobe After Effects and Sony Vegas Pro, so be expecting me to make alot more videos from now on. I also got FRAPs, too. (Yes, they're all fully functional programs; Not demos or trials). They cost an arm and a leg, though. Which is crazy, because I'm saving up for a new computer. I believe Sony Vegas was $400, Adobe After Effects was $1,000, and FRAPs is $37.
Anyways, I think I'm going to make an Atlantica Online video with Noir first, before I make a CSS video. She's part of a Guild that I'm trying to get into, so maybe I'll make it a Guild video; Maybe I'll just make a Noir and Jest video. Not sure. All I know is I'm going to put alot of work into the video, to make it come out just right.
I'm planning a surprise for PLC, though. I plan on making them an advertisement video. Majority of it is going to be footage or me (Although, I'm not part of PLC), but there's a select few of the PLC members I'm going to request them to demo themselves and send me the files. I'll compile them together and work on the entire vid. I'll be posting them on YouTube, GotFrag, and other places people go to watch Counter-Strike: Source videos.
Anyways, I've been dieting and exercising ALOT lately. That's right. I finally started. Haha. I'm starting to look buff, again. I used to be extremely physically fit before; Then I guess I got discouraged and stopped lifting weights, running, skating- Basically, I cut off all physical exercises; Stopped dieting, too (Since the diet I was on was for lean muscle gain), so there was no point on continuing the diet.
Well, I started it again. It's been a few days already and I can see the change. It's insane. I didn't think I'd notice a change so fast, but I see it already. None-the-less, I'm feeling good. I even started skating, again. I plan on taking more pictures or myself and my home boys. I just don't like carrying a camera around, 'cause that means you're the designated camera guy, which means you can't skate as often and if I do put the camera down, I'm always conscious that it might get stolen or something, so I don't like bringing it.
I guess that's all from me. Sorry for the lame update; Hopefully, next time, it'll be alot juicier and alot more fun to read. Until then.
So here I am, bored again, doing nothing. I decided to quit EQ2. I'm saving money right now and so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to cancel my subscriptions to all my games. I'm going to cut off anything that involves me paying for something. Then I'm just going to save up. It's the fastest way to be able to afford my computer.
I started playing Counter-Strike: Source, again. It's fun. I have to admit. Although, once StarCraft 2 comes out, I'm going to quit everything and just strictly play that. Although, of course, I can't stay away from Counter-Strike: Source too long. I'll play it once and a while, but my whole dedication will be StarCraft 2.
Well, I don't know what to say. I started dieting a bit. Well, not really. I really need to. Not 'cause I'm fat or gaining weight, but just because I want to. I also need to start lifting weights, again. I keep saying I'm going to, but I end up not doing it. I know for sure, the start of this week, I will start lifting weights and dieting fully. Starting Monday. It's Sunday, 1:13am my time right now. So I should make use of today and eat whatever I want and get alot of sleep, 'cause the moment I wake up Monday, it's diet and exercising.
I used to be such a health freak before, then I started slacking. Just lately, I've been feeling like... I don't know, that I'm not eating right, that I'm feeling too lazy lately, which isn't me. I'm always hyper, energetic, and loud. Well, anyways, I'm done with this entry. See you all later. Take care.
The number one stunner,
So I told you all that I'll update you on the movies. Well, here's my update. Actually, before I even get to that, I need to express that I havn't been gaming in a while. I'll log onto a game once or twice, but then I'll just log-off and watch a movie or something. It feels weird not gaming. It's something I've done, practically for a living, for such a long time and now that I havn't been playing lately... it's just... I don't know. Getting to me, maybe? Yeah. It is.
That's enough about that. Let's get back to the movie reviews I didn't post about last entry that I didn't critic yet. Here they are...
Doomsday: Good Lord this was an awful movie. I hated this movie. The girl wasn't pretty, the story was lame, the acting was horrible. It really did feel like a HUGE rip-off of Resident Evil. I hated this movie. It was so bad, I'd give it a 2 out of 10 stars. HORRIBLE!
The Bucket List: Oh... my... God... This was a BEAUTIFUL movie! I actually cried. That's right, people, this movie made me cry. Holy shit. It wasn't what I was expecting. The acting was beautiful, the story was beautiful. I havn't watched a genre like this in a long time and I'm so glad that I chose this movie in particular for this sort-of genre. This movie was great. I'd give it 10 our of 10 stars.
The Eye: All I have to say is this movie was FAR better than Shutter. I liked this movie. There was alot of suspense and thrills. I don't know, the "horror" part of this movie was an average, but it got me on everything else. Good job to Jessica Alba on this movie. She did a fine job acting. I'd give this movie a 7 out of 10 stars.
White Noise 2: I've yet watched this. In-fact, this is the ONLY movie I have that I havn't watched yet. So, I'll probably watch it later tonight or tomorrow morning. Whenever I get the chance, really.
Cloverfield: An awesome movie; At least, I thought it was awesome. There's more to the story than just the movie. You see, when the previews of this movie were first shown, it left everyone wondering what the movie was about. Well, the Director and Producers of the movie decided to make a puzzle for everyone to try and figure out: From making fake websites, etc. They really took it to the extreme, to the point you actually had to hack some sites in-order to watch secret videos, etc.
After watching it, and being pleased with the movie, especially because of all the work I put into before the movie was even released, I decided to check the website a few months later. It had new photos and clues that wern't there before. Why would they do this AFTER the movie was released? I mean, the hype is already over, right?
Well, it's been nearly a year now and I checked the website today and there's NEW photos and hints, which basically tells me, a true fan of Cloverfield/1.18.08, that there's going to be a sequel OR A PREQUEL to the movie. I can't wait. In-fact, I'm extremely excited.
Anyways, I'll give this movier 8 out of 10 stars.
Transformers: Growing up, I watched the original cartoon series (Yes, I'm that old). I loved it. I love it still. In-fact, I own the original cartoon series boxsets INCLUDING the animated movie AND the live action movie. Along with tons of comic books, etc. I'm a huge fan and I was extremely pleased with the movie that was recently released. Another one that gets 8 out of 10 stars.
Well, that's all from me. I'll post more about White Noise 2 later.
Take care, everyone.
Wanna know how I got these scars?,
I watched Batman: The Dark Knight yesterday. It was a pretty damn good movie. Heath Ledger did one hell of a job acting as the Joker. Sure, he was no Jack Nicholson, but Jack Nicholson was no joker. I mean, no offense to Jack Nicholson, he's one great actor and I respect him ALOT (He's one of my favorite actors); Have you even read any Batman comics? The Joker was NEVER the Jack Nicholson Joker.
The Joker has always been the Heath Ledger Joker and I thought Heath Ledger did one hell-of a job. It was a good movie. All the actors were good in it. I'd have to give that movie 8 stars out of 10. Well, enough about that, I also watched some movies that have been released on DVD this year. I'm not going to say how I got them, due to the circumstances that it risks, but... I did manage to get them and watch them all for free and right here on my computer. Haha.
Anyways, I even downloaded some old ones. Here's the stuff I've received and watched:
Drillbit Taylor - It was one funny movie, but it wasn't Owen Wilson that made it funny. It was the kids. It was lame in some areas, funny in some areas. I'd give it a 6 out of 10 stars.
Semi-Pro - This movie was lame in some parts, but when the funny parts happened, they were EXTREMELY funny. I enjoyed this movie. Alot of people thought it wasn't that great, but I thought it was awesome. Nothing really compared to Will Farrels older movies, but this was a pretty good one. I'd give it 7 out of 10 stars.
Shutter - Dumbest movie I've seen in a long time. The Taiwan version (Which is the original version) is by FAR the best one. The American version of Shutter sucked so bad. I hated it so much.
Vantage Point - This movie was good. It kept me locked onto my screen, watching it, it was beautiful. I loved every moment of it. I'd give this movie an 8 out of 10 stars.
Dan in Real Life - It was a good movie. I have to admit that. I was just expecting it all to be funny, which it was, but I didn't expect it to be a ROMANCE COMEDY! At least, in Romance comedies, majority of them are funny instead of lovey. In this movie, it was sappy love story. I mean, don't get me wrong, it was a really good movie, but I didn't expect there to be a love story. I thought it was all comedy and at the time, I really, REALLY wasn't in the mood to watch a love story type movie. I'd give this movie a 7 out of 10 stars.
Doomsday - I've yet watched this, so I'll be posted about it later.
The Bucket List - I havn't watched this neither, so I'll be posting about it later, as well.
White Noise 2 - I havn't watch it, but I'll watch it soon enough once I get the other movies out of the way. I'll post about it later, as well.
The Eye - I have it loaded up right now, but I've yet watched it. The moment I submit this entry, I'll be starting on this movie. I can't wait. Jessica Alba is a fox, but you know who I absolutely ADORE? Penelope Cruz... Oh my God... that woman is a DREAM. Anyways...
Top Gun - This movie was awesome. It was made in the 80's, but still kicks some ass. This is one of the rare Tom Cruise movies I like. I usually don't like the guy. He's a good actor, I just don't like him personally and the movies he stars in, I usually tend to dislike. None-the-less, this movie is so epic, I give it 9 out of 10 stars.
Well, that goes for all the movies I've watched recently. Oh, my friend Justin burned me a copy of the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which is an AWESOME anime. I think when I'm done with The Eye, I'll watch the Bucket List, then I'll finish up the entire Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Shouldn't take long, since the entire series only has 14 episodes.
Right now, I'm addicted to Code Geass. It's such a good anime. I love the characters and the concept of the anime. I was hesitant on watching it, 'cause I always thought of it being a Gundam rip-off. I was wrong. It's a good mech anime that should become a legend, in my opinion. Right up there with Gundam (All the series), Robotech, and Macross (Yes, Macross IS Robotech, but a totally new series in the same world).
Well, I havn't been playing much games lately. I don't know why. I havn't been in the mood, honestly. I think it's maybe because I've missed so many animes and movies that I feel left behind, so I'm taking a break from gaming (Not a long one, of course), so I could catch up and finish up everything I've missed.
That's all from me for now. I'll be posting later. Take care, everyone.
Why so Serious?,
So I'm getting extremely irritated right now. All my orders that I keep putting up, keep getting sold out. I'm gonna bust some ass soon. I swear. This makes me want to punch someone in the fuckin' head right now. Grrr! Haha. RAWR! But seriously, check this out, they've sold out of the Power Supply I want and the fuckin' UPS I want. Damn it all to hell.
Alright, I think I'm going to keep them on the list, be patient, and wait for them to resupply their stock. Once this happens, then I'll order. What do you all think? Or should I just choose something else and order it anyways? I'm a patient guy, so I could wait. I don't mind waiting. Plus, the computer I'm on is uber already, so I don't mind just being patient.
What do you all think?
