The World is a Strange Place.

My cousin, is amazing.  So amazing, and awesome that he created a whole new breed of technologically advanced lifeforms.  I give you... Railgun Puppy.  Yes, this particular breed of puppy totes a high powered and terribly destructive railgun.  What is a railgun you ask?  Trouble!  But scientifically it is a gun, or rifle that uses magnetically charged rails to accelerate a projectile at several times the speed of sound.  The result is a big gaping hole where your stomach, or spleen used to be.  The US Navy currently has one, but it's too big to be held.  That, however, is no small feat for a railgun puppy.  Watch out unsuspecting bad-guys, and dog haters!

Math is my best friend!

I am taking a math course right now and holy crap!  I haven't done math in nearly 7 years, but I can tell you this I'm remembering quickly.  I graduated in 2003 and the math course I took in my senior year was, lets face it, not that hard.  It was geometry 1.  So, I breezed through it thinking that math was only secondary in my education.  Boy have I been wrong.  A lot of the majors that I'm interested in require extensive mathematics.  Here I am, starting at the bottom rung, well almost, in Math 920.  But it's a relief as to how easy and how helpful it has been so far.  Two classes and already I'm feeling more confident in my capabilities to solve mathematical equations.  Now, we've only just started, and the harder stuff is going to come up, but I'm actually paying attention this time around, and not doodling in class like I did in High School.

Too much I ask?

Everyone who knows me knows that I like to play video games, and that I have a crazy amount of them, plus the systems to boot.  i thought about this when was playing through Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the 5th or 6th time, I can't remember exactly how many times it's been now.
This time on the Xbox 360.  I don't know why I play through it so much, but it is oddly satisfying to play.  The multiplayer is fun too, albeit a bit aggravating with all the children playing it.  Yes, children under the age of 18.  I guess that is to be expected.  Children of a young age are much more gifted in complex motor skills since they practically grew up with a controller of some type in their hands.

James and I had a conversation via cell phones, and here it is.

Me: Ur aw3som3! L33t!!11!
The Ninja: I know. So is collin.
Me: Yeah, but he's like on a whole other level of epicness.
The Ninja: True true. 48 5585Jpd jgtmdajtw knelt ulcelestym bluen.
Me: I havent attained the level of awesome in order to comprehend that last part.
The Ninja: So how did you read the first and middle parts?
Me: I could only guess, the rest obliterated my mind. Luckily I backed it up earlier. Restore point for the win!
The Ninja: Comprehensions fail! Back up brain win!
Me: Exactomundo! A word I have never used until now... Win!!!!!!! Boom! say goodbye to your arms suckah!

I wish I remembered crap sometimes...

I have a cousin, and he is a ninja.  I know, I know awesome right?  Well here is the most awesome part, I am also a ninja so naturally we hang together from time to time.  What is the outcome of this event?  Pure unadulterated epicness!  We often say things that cannot be comprehended by nonjas (non ninjas) but we still manage to make them laugh or even ponder what has been said.

A note on working early

IT SUCKS!  Yes I am awake writing this post because I have to go to work at 4 a.m.  The good part is that I will be home by 12:30pm and have time to do things, take a nap, etc.  But the overall experience is harrowing and tiring.  I can't wait for the day when I have 9-5 and Monday through Friday work shifts.  Anyway, toodaloo.

Doctor Who, watch it!

When I was a child I grew up in a house knowing about Doctor Who.  Now this is rather rare since I am a citizen of the USA.  My parents used to watch Doctor Who on their PBS station while I was still in the womb.  Well somehow that simple act transferred into my brain and I have had an interest in Doctor Who throughout my life.  It took me until 2007-08 to watch the new series though.  The original series started way back before my birth and even my parents.  It was extremely popular then, so BBC resurrected it and it is really popular now.

Blogging frustration!

I like having this blog, but if there is one thing that I hate about it, its the dang html!  I can't wrap my head around it.  I've been to countless sites reading their tutorials and such and it doesn't help my problem one bit.  All I want is to replace the title of my blog with an image that I created myself.  That's all!  The really annoying thing is that Blogger.com's built in image upload technique wont work with the html template that I'm using and I can't figure out why.  Whats the thinking here?  Someone decided to make a three column blog template but didn't include one crucial part?  How can I change that without messing up my blog?  I don't know the answers to these questions.  Whatever, I'll learn html and then it will all be clear.  Now if I only had time...

This is the picture that I want for the title.

What have they done?

Okay, how many times has a book been turned into a movie or television series?  Countless times no doubt.  How many of those adaptations were true to form and actually any good?  That depends on the interpreter, or producers, directors, etc.  How is this fair to the viewer?  Often times it isn't.  Despite all this, books like Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the Golden Compass have been recreated in cinematic form, and to be honest they were pretty good, but not 100% accurate.  A lot of that has to do with how the director feels the movie should flow.  Books and movies don't flow the same, in fact a book transliterated into a movie is a terrible thing.  It would take much too long to create the movie itself, and the audience would get bored, fast.

Happy New Year!

I'm starting off the new year with my first post. So, it's been a good year, if not a bit rough due to the economic failings of North American society, whatevs. The best thing that happened to me this year was when I got married (April 3rd, 2009) for time and all eternity to my beautiful wife, Steph. She's awesome and stuff!
