An amalgamation of friends and influences have come together into the perfect setup in my bedroom.
Shortly after experiencing Mac splendour, I've come to the very hard conclusion that working is better on a Mac, and PC gaming might be a touch overrated.
First off, \\family welcomes Stevie the TV to the ranks, and loads of thanks need to go to (still blogless) irrational for making that possible.
With the efforts of Vertice and god, I'm the proud owner of a PS2 too (Still undubbed! Shocking!). Being a lover of platform and adventure type games, I'll not miss the constant driver updates, or the installations ad nauseum.
Now li5a and Peter(?) PS2 share my bedroom from where I can online chat, update a website or two, blog, watch a DVD and play a game (or 9). Yes friends - I'll be keeping myself busy with titles like Shadow of the Colossus, Viewtiful Joe, Rez and Psychonauts - not to mention catching up on some classic rpgs like Final Fantasy.
To my friends
You all kick ass and whip booty. I cannot explain how happy all of the above has made me, and to you all, I dedicate this blog entry and loads of love! I'm indeed extremely fortunate to know you.
Restarting the quotes page I sadly lost during the incident.
- <Vertice>i got my wii
- <MaXimus> mac before mom except after pork
- <AE> Table layouts in HTML is the web-equivalent of killing trees
- <Vertice> i always write db_queery for some reason....
- <AE> (on lesbians) Funny how a real one can ruin a perfectly good fantasy
- <MaXimus> (on hippies and violence) ...until you take their stash. Then you'll see some violence.
<AE> Yeah. Don't get your hippie out of joint
- <Irrational> Do you know where the flat earth society is based?
<MaXimus> Clearly not close to the edge..
- <Irrational> You can't claim "Mein Kampf" was written badly. Hitler wan't an author.
<AE>He was a dictator
- <Lailoken> (while discussing the pro's and cons of ice-cream in a bowl vs. in a cone) ...and you're on the beach and you're crying and there's nobody around..
...I bought a PS3. For only R1k!! If dreams are omens, then I should get cracking on fetching Stevie the TV (used without permission from 'Friends').
Hi all, and welcome back me! Yes, I've been away spending some time down at the coast, locking myself into my room for some serious gaming and/or media. R & R the way it was meant to be *beam*
Yep...the coast *reminisce*. A long, long drive away from home. This year - done in a Porsche, no less. Literally flying down, arriving with a windscreen testament of exactly how juicy Karoo butterflies can get and a shirt testament of how much perspiration a body can produce in ten hours (due to an unfortunate turn of events, the airconditioner was less than operational, and said Karoo is unforgiving).
I know I left without any greetings, and I do apologize - so without further ado:
Yep! I've not been completely idle, and y'all can look forward to many more doodles in the following couple of weeks - I've been stocking up! ;)
What good is a new year's post, without ye olde cheezy resolution type message? Pretty good, I'd say - and against better knowledge and risking mockery by bloggers everywhere, I'd like to finish up with mine..
This year, I want to aim towards improving my art, experiment with colour again, work on some larger pieces and maybe do something lasting.
Wishing you all, a prosperous one!
Thanks dude! You rock! (Again)
It's a sad day for one of my best friends, saying farewell to his mother.
I've not known how difficult it could be until I lost my father earlier this year - so difficult, that I couldn't even bring myself to blog about it either.
Lailoken: Let me know if there's anything I can help with. I know it's hard to ask, but believe me, it's worth it. My thoughts are with you.
T'is the season to get married, and this year is no exception. This time, however, my participation extends beyond the usual "buy a gift for your free meal" responsibilities.
Yep, I've been given the honour (and difficult task) of controlling the music at said reception. Without doubt, the couple will have some tracks they want played, but I'm no stranger to music, nor do I approve of just anything (I don't know if I can live down another wedding with the fatal duck song, or the greek craziness).
Coming up with an eclectic playlist catering for the inevitable variety of guests is proving to be quite difficult. Fortunately, I've got a little more than a month to come up with it, and that's where you folks come in; I'll be posting my potential wedding-trax here, allowing y'all to comment with suggestions and/or advice (especially if you have experience in getting married and the music that worked, or experience in playing the music). So the list so far:
|Bruce Springsteen||Dancing in the Dark|
|Peal Orchestra||No Win Situation (Kluster Uplifting Mix)|
|No Doubt||Just a Girl|
|The Crystal Method & Vertical Horizon||Everything You Want (TCM mix)|
|Frou Frou||I need a Hero|
|Roxette||Milk and Toast and Honey (active dance remix)|
|Mike Oldfield||Heaven's Open|
|Billy Idol||Hot in the City|
|Billy Idol||Mony Mony|
|Dave Matthews Band||Two Step|
|The Darkness||I Believe In A Thing Called Love|
|A-ha||Take On Me (extended techno mix)|
|Dire Straits||Walk Of Life|
|Frank Sinatra (ft. Bono)||I've Got You Under My Skin|
|The Art of Noise||Peter Gunn (extended version)|
|Jack Johnson||Fortunate Fools|
|John Mayer||Your Body Is A Wonderland|
|Conjure One||Tears from the Moon|
