12:19 pm - Partial Ramblings Of A Bored, Bored Dude
Yah, so I'm thinking about using this thing again. I probably say that a lot, but this time....well, I probably mean it just as much as when I've said in the past. Take this at face value!

Woot! Guitar Hero 3 later! I can't believe that I haven't touched that game at all yet, considering I bought the first two on their respective release dates.  I can't even remember what the track listing for the game was at all. But hey, who could pass up getting baked and pretending to be a musician? No one!

Save for those with...priorities and shit. Overrated, if you ask me!

Some other things to ponder:

- How awesome is The Dark Knight going to be?
- I don't know why I got my hopes up, but Halo 3 was shit. Just thought I'd put that out there
- I want a PS3 finally, simply for the fact that Darth Vader is a playable character in Soul Calibur 4 on that platform, whereas Yoda is a 360-exclusive. Not that I wouldn't have an awesome time playing as the little green guy, but, c'mon. Sith trumps Jedi every damn day of the week.
- This journal has a pretty fucked up color scheme. What the hell was I thinking when I allowed this to happen?
- Concentrate orange juice + toothpaste + ceramic mug = kinda tastes like eggs

Wow, I actually kinda enjoyed doing that!

9:29 pm - Miss Me?
"I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow"

I've never really noticed how beautiful that single line is. That's gotta be a good feeling. End random song musings

I've had so much fun over the last few weeks, it's really made me stop and look at how I've been livin' for most of my life.

I've done nothing. I've never really liked going out all that much, being much more content to lock myself up in a room with a game or a movie. That's cool for some of the time, but if you never ever leave the house, you're not living. You're not even close.

In the period between graduation and September, I did basically nothing. I still live at home, don't have a job, no license, no car, and no ambition. That's not what I wanna be for the rest of my life, the dude that's doin' nuthin'. As anyone who lives in the Bay and has tried to reach me for the last couple weeks knows, I haven't been home for a while. I've been in Sacramento, Hollywood, Ventura, and everywhere in-between (mostly since I drove to get to those places). I haven't really been doing anything drastically different from my usual routine. I've still watched flicks, played games, and just fucking chilled, but it's been in different places. I haven't been sitting in my room in Fremont. I haven't been wandering around Hayward.

I've been talking with loved ones in Elk Grove. I've been to my first concert (GREEN DAY!) in Sacramento. I've been fucking around in Ventura. I've been walking down Melrose in Hollywood. I've had the trippiest night of my life at Tim and Joey's place in NoHo. I've been having fun everywhere but here.

The past month has lead to me to realized how bogged down in my routine I've become. I've seen myself cramped-up in my bubble. My life as it is now has morphed into some stagnant beast. So, I'm gettin' the fuck outta here.

I'm not 100% sure where to, but I think I want to go to L.A. I think that the first season of Entourage is to blame for that decision. People have been trying to talk me out of it, but I think it's something that I've just really gotta do. It's a new experience, a new lifestyle. If I'm really to do the things that I want to do, I'll never be able to accomplish any of that staying here, a slave to tedium.

I've pretty much got my mind made up, but this is meant to inform people of what's goin' on, and to ask for people's input, and maybe to help a few people I know who are in similar situations. So, leave me a comment, let me know what you're thinking. I can't promise I'll heed your advice, but anything you'll say to me is bound to help in some way!

Just poppin' in to let anyone who still even glances at this thing from time to time know that they absolutely HAVE to go watch Sin City this Friday!

I've been looking forward to this movie ever since I read the graphic novels and heard that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller himself with at the helm.

Hit up The Official Sin City Site for cast info, and to watch the trailers and revel in this films awesomeness.

Reviews of the movie so far are singing it's praises(as was expected), so even if you're one of those people who can't stand a movive in black and white (which none of you probably are, since I know anyone on my friends list is awesome!) you seriously OWE it to yourself to go see this flick!

Despite the myriad of other things going on right now (only one of which I deem is particularly noteworthy) there's a thought that I can't get out of my head: How much I want to start a gaming/movie site again. And do it the way that I want to do it. Like, a Maddox meets Gamespot kinda thing.

Fucking Dave Callaham. It's all this fuckers fault that these ideas are coming into my head again.

Someone should really make sure that I stay somewhat committed to writing in this thing in a timely manner. I mean, it's been a while since I even thought or writing in this thing. And now, so much shit has happened, that there's no way that I'll get around to typing it all up. I guess you guys lose out on that one. Sorry!

First things first: updates to my last journal entries.

1) Haven't beat Halo 2 on Legendary yet. That mostly has to do with the fact that I haven't played it since I typed that last entry up. Given how damn hard that first level was though, I doubt that I'd be done with it now even had I been playing it this whole time. I'm still very much up for the challenge though. Bring it, Covenenant bitches.

2) Didn't end up going to the Green Day concert. There's a long, convoluted story behind that one, so I won't be getting into detail. I was upset at missing in the first place, but I've since bought American Idiot, and needless to say to any Green Day fans out there, it's their best album in quite some time. Let's say since...oh...Dookie. Yeah. So, I'm even more pissed at the fact that I couldn't attend. Damn birthdays, damn confusion, and damn all you punks that actually got to go see 'em live!

Brief interlude: I've got the Green Day song "Fashion Victim" off of Warning stuck in my head. If anyone that reads this can lemme bum the MP3 off of you via AIM or sumthin', please lemme know. This shit will be stuck in my head forever unless I hear it soon!

On the subject of Saturday: Everyone who didn't get to go with us to the movies, don't worry, you didn't miss a fucking thing. The whole excursion itself kinda sucked, mostly because we watched what may be the most homo-erotic screenplay put to film, Alexander. I felt gay just sitting throught the damn thing. I did get a chance to talk to Kari while I was there, though I kinda regretted what I had to say afterwards. I mean, I dunno. That whole shit's just umpteen levels of complicated, and it's all on my end too which just illustrates why I'm glad I don't have to deal with this sort of thing much. I'm very content to just sit and admire, well aware that I'll never have a shot at some semblance of amour. Whatever.

Saturday night was much better though, last minute gathering at Josh's. I wish I woulda gotten word sooner, so I could have shown up at stomped Sticks in front of his new girl on the court, just because I'm a dick like that. As it stands, I got there an hour or two late, and everyone was inside, so I was only allowed the pleasure in stomping ass in Halo 2 multiplayer. I did like the fact that there were more people than usual there, I think wholeheartedly that we should go with bigger gatherings from now on. More chicks too. I mean, it kinda sucks when every member of the estrogen club is taken by another dude already at the shindig.

Gah, I should stop talking before I have an army of pissed of chicks at my door.

I've been meaning to actually put some real WORDS into here one of these days, and seein' how I'm feeling oddly calm and collected at the moment, I figured that now would be the best time to do so.

So, hey everybody!

Not a lot has been happenin' in the real world for me since the last time I made an honest-to-goodness update. Well, I actually got around to turning in an English assignment, and I got a damn fine grade on it. Had I not fucked up the MLA formatting, and had the right sized font, that shit would've been as close to perfect as could be. She wants to use it as an example for future classes. I so rock hard. Perhaps I'll post it on here, if there's enough interest; don't wanna force every facet of my awseome-ness down your throats.

More recently (actually, it's kinda in the future) Kari and I are headed to 'Frisco to see the Green Day concert. It's gonna be my first real concert, so I'm stoked as shit, even despite the fact that I have to take the BART to San Francisco to see the damn thing. Not sure who else is on the bill, but I heard that it was either Sugarcult or New Found Glory, and I'm not too happy about that, but I'll have to sit through it. I think...I hope that I can tough it out.

Well, enough of that shit. Now, on to the important stuff.

The last couple of weeks have been filled with gaming goodness.

First up, GTA: San Andreas. Every gamers wet dream. The week that I rented it from Blockbuster I was almost completely immersed in it every available second. The look rocks, the story rocks, the setting rocks, the sound rocks, the attributes system rocks, the character customization rocks, and the gameplay rocks. Suffice to say, this game rocks. I expected the typical GTA level greatness, but this shit far surpassed anything that I could have imagined. Just when Fable had caused to me to lose faith in the gaming industry (or perhaps just the hype machine) GTA came right back in and made me a devout believer again. Anyone who owns a PS2, has access to a PS2, knows someone with a PS2, or even just wants to be awesome in my book, NEEDS to buy this game. While you're at it, pick me up a copy too!

Next up, Halo 2. Now, I would have totally flipped and cursed Microsoft and it's accursed Xbox had I not played multiplayer before I breezed through the single player campaign.

I headed over to Hollister's place last Friday so me, him, Sam and Ricky could test out the LAN waters with a small group. Let's just say that the 3 or so odd hours that I was there were totally not enough. The new maps that I played kick righteous amounts of ass, as does the new energy sword weapon. Shit, all the new weapons kick ass, since they more or less balance each other out. No more God-like pistol, which means I totally have to re-think my methods.

Josh had some shit to do that night, so he quite generously offered me his limited-edition copy for my own personal use for Friday evening. Being the geek that I am, I elected to waste yet another night off from school shut up in my room, wailing on Covenant ass. Or, at least that's what I planned. The single-player campaign on normal took me about 4 and a half hours to complete.

Now, it could be that since I'm used to gaming on the Legendary difficulty that I breezed through the game simply because my skill is so incredible. But, most of the other people that I've talked to have mentioned a similar experience (some claim to have beaten the game in an about 2 hours: those people are liars). Bah. Not only that, I wasn't completely all onboard with the story, and the ending caused me to have an experience similar to Tycho's reaction as described by Gabe. I can't wait to get together again to kill some REAL competition at the next LAN party. Gotta get that bitter single-player taste outta my mouth.

Well, I think that I've rambled quite enough for now, but before I leave, I'd like a chance to gloat in the faces of all my friends not in the FUSD.


And, I'm out.

Wow, dude. It's the absolute worst when you find out that some really cool shit happened that you could have been a part of, were it not for the negligence of others? Turns out last night was one of those nights.

I didn't really plan on doing much, just heading over to Adam's and trying to save him from all the 13-year girliness that his night looked to be a part of. Got there, met his girl in person (I think she rocks by the way) and we ended up walkin' the kids around while they went out trick or treating. Woulda been no prob, were it not cold as fuck, and were the girls not all out just to get in fights with anyone that crossed their path. I'm tellin' you, this is why I'll never have kids. Me, being the only mellow person not afraid to step up or talk to people, ended up playing the peacemaker through several altercations that occurred throughout the course of the night.

So, after all that, everyone ended up going their separate ways and I headed home. Well, with no other plans, I screwed around, watched some Aqua Teen Hunger Force and caught an episode of That's My Bush (anyone else remember that show?) and hit the hay.

Well, I found out at school from the king of bad news, Akash, that a buncha my friends from Hayward got together (about 25 of them) and hung out and went to watch Saw. But of course, they called while I was away and the message never got relayed to me when I got home. Sonuva bitch. That makes me angry. GRRRR!!!!

Whoa, it's been a while since I've updated. I figured that I should give all of my adoring fans something to read before they kill themselves over lack of moi.

Unfortunately, my head isn't exactly in the best of places at the moment, and I can't really remember much. But I'll tell ya what I can recall:

Thursday: Pretty cool. It was Mt. Eden's senior cut day, so Sarah, Skye and Charla came and yanked me outta school. We all hung out and went to Berkley ('cept for Charla...goin' back to class. Damn loser). After that, we hung out in the parking lot at Mt. Eden for a bit, but I didn't get a chance to see anyone else. Sorry to everyone who missed their chance to bask in my presence!

Friday: Got out of school at 12:00 (thank goodness for staff work-days) and me, Jackie, Sam, and the two Josh's grabbed some brownie mix and a couple of pizza's and headed over to Jackies. We ate pizza and hung out in her yard for a few hours, she made brownies and we grubbed on those for a bit. Then we headed around so people could drop shit off, pick shit up, then went over to Hollister's to play RTCW. Well, that shit didn't work, so we ended up playing Halo, like we always do. Of course, I kicked ass.

Saturday: I have no fucking clue what I did today.

Sunday: I got that computer off of David, which has yet to get internet access, so it's pretty much useless at the moment. I did install Half-Life on it thogh, so I'm working my way through that again. It's been a really long time since I've played that.

Gah. Craig stop now. Head hurt from write.

Bein' sick really licks balls. I was out Thursday and Friday with a sore-ass throat and a nose that I was completely unable to breathe through... but at least I did't have to go to school.

I willed myself to get better by Saturday, and of course, I was. Actually, to be perfectly honest, I felt better on Friday, but my folks didn't need to know that.

Anyways, I was supposed to go out to Hayward on Saturday, and I waited around like a jackass for someone to come pick me up or call me, or sumthin', but I didn't get shit. So, fuck all of ya that had anythin' to do with that.

So, with those plans down the shitter, I was able to head over to Adams little birthday get-together thing part deux, this time at his mom's place. More people this time, and they were cool as fuck, Adam's step-sister and cousin Grant most notably. Only about 6 of us were able to make up until about 3, and Grant and I were the only ones that were able to stay awake all night. Everyone split pretty early in the morning, and I got the feeling that we had to be outta there by the time that Adam's mom got back from church, so I left around 11. Tiff picked me up, and we headed out to her house in San Jose to pick up some shit for her car. On the way there she bought me the nastiest-ass Western burger at Carls Jr. The bacon and onion rings were like, stale or sumthin'. I hurt my teeth chewin' through the motherfuckers, so that's totally not a good sign.

We got back, and I found out that we were havin' some sorta end of summer bbq, so everyone else set up for that while I caught a half-hour nap. People started showin' up at about 4, and we ate, and hung out. I watched the Raiders/Buccaneers game (Oakland won...dammit) and found out that the Niners lost 34-0. What the fuck?

I actually got to bed kinda early last night, but I was still tired as fuck all day. Found out that my Sports Marketing class decided that my letter to local business' begging for money was the best, and they were making changes to it today and Friday, so, I guess that's kinda cool.

It's spirit week, so, I won't be attending any of those shitty performances at lunch, and Jackie and I are gonna try to escape the grounds for the rally towards the end of school like we did last year. Here's hoping that this escape will be even more daring than last years!!!

I'm really sick of my e-mail address. I wanna change it, but I don't wanna go through the hassle of notifying everyone and everything of it. Despite my laziness, I think my desire to put everything "badazz" behind me will win out. It's funny how when you look at things in retrospect, you realize what horrendous ideas they were. No insult to my former comrades in website obscurity, those were some fun times.

Holy shit, I just went off on a tangent.

School may just stop sucking as much tomorrow, or it could totally head off in the opposite direction. I finally got my schedule today, so I'm officially a Senior as far as I know, and my previous classes that I shouldn't have had (US history, English 11, and psychology) have been replace with the proper courses: Government/Economics, English 12, and Sports Marketing. I have no idea what that last class entails, but it's with the teacher that I have Business Ownership with, so it prolly won't be too bad, unless I get a classroom full of jackasses.

On a final parting note, everyone needs to take the quiz in the post below (if you're reading this on my main journal page, if not...well, go there)just so I can see where you stand in relation to PA knowledge. Low scores mean that I have to educate you personally...and I don't think that any of you really want that.

"Summer '79"

Our last day of summer, 1979
Gotta live it up one time before it's over
We will make history tonight.

Out at the drive-in
All of our closest friends, they will be sneaking in
You'll be spending the whole night
Trying eveything you can to get that girl to notice you.

"We Are the Champions" playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin' down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let's create anthems of our own tonight.

Down at the roller rink,
All the cool kids crowded around the air hockey table.
"Hey, my best friend likes you,"
I hear you shout at me as you go skating by.

"We Are the Champions" playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin' down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let's create anthems of our own tonight.

Sneak out of your window, darlin'
Let's live like outlaws, honey
We'll never look back.

Climb out on this rooftop,
And stare at the city lights below us
This world belongs to us tonight
The kids will keep ragin' on-
And they ain't never gonna stop.

"We Are the Champions" playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin' down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let's create anthems of our own tonight.

Okay, so maybe the year doesn't match, but the rest of it still applies. It's the final day of my final summer vacation. I Wish I could live it up, but I'm stuck going to get my hair cut.

8:08 am - School = Craig's Kryptonite

Anyone who's reading this entry is no doubt, well aware of the amount of disdain that I hold for the educational institutions of the Bay Area (and prolly anywhere else, for that matter). So it most likely also comes as no surprise that that the hour or so that I spent at American yesterday really, really licked balls.

It was that whole registration thing yesterday, and it's the first time I've ever been to one, so I was more or less confused by the whole thing.

The long and the short of it is that I stood in a long ass line for a long time, took my ID picture, and got my schedule. First off, they gave me two Junior classes, which shows me that the school appearantly doesn't look at any official transcripts or anything when making a students schedule up, just at what grade they're listed under. And secondly...and much more depressing... I didn't get guitar. They gave me psychology... I don't even remember selecting psychology. But, I have it.

And the real kicker?

There was not ONE COUNSELOR there to correct schedule changes. Not ONE. Isn't it wonderful how well our school staff performs, and provides it's students with the smoothest experience possible....

I wasn't pissed when I started this. Now I am.

Haha, have you ever seen two sisters get into an argument over a dude? A dude that's in the exact same car no less than a foot away from the aforementioned arguers?


Now, I'm not one for who normally enjoys a shout-fest in the bed of the truck with an insane driver at the wheel, but something about this particular high-pitched display of the prowess of female vocal cords just brought a smile to my face. Perhaps it was because the one who started the whole thing was so completely in the wrong, that her insistance that she was indeed the one on the moral high road was what caused me to grin like a fool. Or perhaps because the terminology used to describe her affections for the male in question (Word to the ladies: OBSESSED is not the best choice of words... shit, it made me feel nervous, and I'm not even the dude they were talking about). Regardless, I doubt my snickering from behind the spare tire did anything to calm the situation; but hey, the awkward silence that followed a while afterwards wasn't NEARLY as entertaining as the train wreck that occured over the appearent contest of affection over Josh.

You chicks are all too funny.
