Finally, reasons to own a PS3

While there is a Playstation 3 in the house, it belongs to my sister so technically I don’t own one. However, these clips have me tempted to sneak in some time on the machine when she’s not around.

I’m a huge fan of niche games with really high art direction like the Katamari series or Jet Set Radio Future, so seeing these clips have me feeling quite nostalgic. These are quite possibly the next generation of my fascination with these types of games. Who says video games aren’t art?

Sweet

I’m not a Street Fighter fan, but even I cannot deny the awesomeness that is these fine garments. Hadouken!

Zombie Hour

Random musings at 3:13 AM:

I haven’t been sleeping¬† at normal hours these days – something that has been going on for a long long time. I blame all these theater closing shifts and my odd school schedule for doing this. It sucks, because I’m always taking naps during the day but at this hour I’m wide awake bored. I guess a cure for that would be to hang more with the newly-christened ‘Cineplex Losers.’

It’s currently week six in school and so far I haven’t really gotten into ‘the mood’ lately when it comes to digging into the material. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because of the lack of engagement in the classes, or the fact that my distant education class is just… distant. It’s a really weird semester, and I figure it won’t be the last.

I’m looking forward to jamming more these days – see previous post. I don’t know what kick started the whole change in attitude, maybe because I don’t want to embarrass myself when I start going to the jam sessions at the guitar club at school. I really missed the old high school days where the old band would kick around tunes and we’d spend afternoons bangin’ while getting distracted playing Halo 2.

I also joined a community volunteer club called the ‘Love Your Neighbor Club,’ something that’s also pretty exciting. I think it’ll be cool.

One last thing: my subscription to World of Warcraft expired tonight. Surprised? The reason was simple: there was no time at all to dedicate the amount I needed in order to succeed in that game. With the delicate juggling act of school, work and socializing with my fellow humans, it was impossible to accommodate what pretty much was a hobby that required way too much work to maintain with minimal returns in the end. I’m looking around at some of the top players in that game, and I figure the only way you’re going to advance and be amongst the elite is to have a crap load of time,¬† be willing to restructure your weekly schedule to accommodate your group activities, and a tolerance for a community that encourages being jerks to each other. No thanks.

Oh, and Matt needs a new cardigan and/or scarf. Please link cool clothes so I may buy and look cool in front of chicks and make lame dudes jealous when I walk by.

Looks dope

Anyone have $1245 I can borrow?

M65 Jackets look pretty dope too – not the one linked, I hate the logo on the side – but they have nothing to protect me from the rain.

It’s been a while since I’ve updated, but not much has happened since my last post. Stressing the fuck out, completely shut in at home and at school, 4-5 hour nights, etc… the usual mad dash to the final days of the semester. Posting randomly here seems like the only respite I have these days.

I’ve got this unopened box for the game World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King sitting right next to me. It’s been there since November when I stood in line until midnight waiting for this thing. My whole plan of reselling it for a substantial profit pretty much failed, so now once school is over I’m thinking about putting some work into it. Harmless activity or poor life choice?

Oh and I was locked up in my basement for a couple of hours today. Fun times.

Of Note

Some things to discuss on this Tuesday – officially the start of my week according to my school schedule.

While I never gave two shits about 1UP, news of EGM closing shop after the UGO purchase – with its January 2009 issue being the last – has come as a shock to me that their long reign within the gaming media industry has ended. I remember my mom giving me a subscription to EGM back in high school – I still have many of the old issues lying around in my room – I thought of it as a pretty reliable and fun read during my boyhood days. Some great reads and cool staff – I love you Jeanne Kim – not only got me hyped up for products I could never afford nor really need, but actually encouraged me to read during a time when I really didn’t give a crap about my studies. But I guess like all my nostalgic moments, things must end someday.

On another note, those crazy Japanese motherfuckers have given me more reason to part with my already sparse cash fund again. Ubiq Fatima has released the Ubiq Fatima x Snoopy Pack sneakers, ornamented with Snoopy drawings sprawled all over it in the form of cartoon panels. They’re tacky as fuck and I doubt I’d wear ’em. But like all art I find pleasing, there will be a way to show off these bad boys to the world. Now about that price tag…
