Expect this to be updated frequently. It may be the only thing I do here frequently. Also expect this to be a totally selfish list.
- Katie (lulz sex)
- Watch Akira with the lights out and stereo turned way up.
- Play Gears of War on xbox live.
- Eat sushi
- Zone of the Enders 2
- God of War
I swear this list should be longer but those are the ones I really have on my mind right now.
I've disabled user registration temporarily because the version of WordPress I'm using has a vulnerablity in it involving new users and I haven't had the time to upgrade. Not that I get any new users.
There is something that has always creeped me out about missing people. I used to watch Unsolved Mysteries when I was a kid and that show always had a missing persons story and those were the worst. It'd be like someone was going about their day to day job and all of a sudden disappear. No signs of struggle, no notes, nothing out of place. Just one missing person. Where do these people go?
Another thing that creeps me out, static-y radio transmissions or phone calls of creepy shit. There's an episode of The Twilight Zone where an old lady keeps getting phone calls with nothing but static on the other end. Soon the static becomes static and breathing. Then it's static and breathing and a low moan. It drives her nuts and I'm pretty sure she dies of terror over these phone calls that won't end. Then they show where the phone line was going and it was a downed line going straight into her husband's grave. Completely nonsensical but it always spooks the shit out of me.
Another one, audio recordings of dead people. Bonus creep points if it's in another language and near death. I blame System Shock 2 but I could point the finger at Bioshock, Event Horizon, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Evil Dead, and any number of other media involving recordings of dead people. Numbers stations fall under this too. I find something very creepy about radio communications of numbers with no explanation.
There you are, my fears laid out. Missing people, poor sound quality in voice transmissions, dead people on tape.
I finished Old Man's War. It was pretty awesome but it inspired me to do something. I'm reinstalling Galactic Civilizations 2. I'm going to start a new game. Biggest map it'll make. Fewest habitable planets allowed. Every single race.
I've come to realize that my relationship with the Army can be best described by the Tool song "Bottom" off of Undertow. The irony here is that my commander used a section of the lyrics to put on the back of our troop t-shirt but I know that it means something different to him and completely opposite to what it means to me.
I can't hide the fact that I'm a Tool fan but you definitely have to work backwards to see progression. 10,000 Days sucks but if you go backwards through their discography they get a billion times better. When all I owned was Lateralus, Aenima, and Undertow I thought it was the opposite and that Lateralus might have been a hiccup but then I heard Opiate and listened to Undertow again and I realized that I had it backwards. They go from fucking awesome to what the fuck.
