I've been meaning to post for awhile now, but my trusty A.D.D. always leads me elsewhere. I've been working a ton, partying not a lot, and have been saving for a trip to go to San Fran with my step sis that just didn't happen. So now i have a grip of cash, but not enough to do a "party hard" vaca to Louisville and just about enough for a 80gig ps3. I'm a lil wary on getting the 80gig because you know damn well Sony will just drop a 120gig is a few months thus making the 80gig drop $200 in price and the purchase worthless. But the positives might outweigh the negatives.|
A.) GTA6 drops in a couple months
B.) With a recent update FFXI is now playable (my ps2 is coming closer to death every time i turn it on)
C.) Another browser is added to my entertainment/living room
D.) PS3 is now the most powerful protein folder
E.) Blu-Ray player
F.) The multi-media features planned for the system are simply amazing (i.e. new eyetoy, playTV, etc.)
theres something else, but i cannot think of it. bout time i upgraded anyways.
Yesterday was my 27th b-day and i feel like total lame-o. Went to dinner with my mom, her bf, and my bro and a lil hole-in-the-wall burger spot. good food, but that is all i did last night. Today i went to lunch with my pops to a steak resturant in downtown minneap. Excellent food, but i didn't match the dress code and i got the kind of service to match that. the dress code is khakis and a decent shirt (minium). Today i am wearing cargo shorts, a black "keep louisville weird" t-shirt & white DC shoes. Plus i have my hair in a variation of a faux hawk. I got lots of awful looks and stares from employees and guests. plus, the waitress found out it is my birthday and she said they do a complimentary white cake for anyone having a birthday, but when the check came at the end of the meal, i guess that deal was removed. oh well, at least i had a filling lunch.
I got some cool gifts so far. My sis got me a vodka shooter/shot glass set and a giant toy from the Avatar cartoon (WTF!?!). My bro got me a $25 gift card to best buy. My mom got me a cake pan, a electronic mixer, a mini food processor, a new shirt for work, a laid back stuffed bear that sings "Don't Worry Be Happy," and a $25 gift card to best buy. My dad & step-mom still haven't figured out what to get me. And finally my co-workers got me a $20 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
My weird toy collecting bug has bit me again recently. A couple months ago i picked up two 5in+ bear figurines, last week i got a Fat Cap figure, and last weekend i got a Freud figure and a japanese/chinese (i can't tell which) lady named Giggles. I'll make a post after this with pics of them.
As for my music listening, it's been a lot of J-pop with some DnB & electro intermixed. Also some old school R&B in there for good measure. Some of what i have been litening to is free to download, some is not (unless you have a converter, more on that later). Here is where you can get some free tastey tunes;
DJplaeskool - Not Quite Live Awkward electro
Linaaa - The Trees Told Me To DnB
FYBS - Blueberry Breaks R&B
As for j-pop, i've been listening to a lot of RIP Slyme & Maboroshi.
Found two Firefox add-ons that I am quite fond of. First Viloader. Viloader is a program that allows you to rip vidz from youtube, dailymotion, google, etc. and turn them into whatever format you want, including mp3. Second is a must for any FFXI player. FFXI Helper is a program that allows you the user see what the current day, time, and moon phase is in-game. also included is a tool bar with very helpful links.
and on that note if you want to keep up with my ffxi dealys, you can read about it on my alternate blog; http://6souls2.livejournal.com Also, i'm slowly putting together a Crystal War text compendium that has many clues leading to the new Wings of the Goddess. Read them here; http://6souls3.livejournal.com
thats all everyone, enjoy your day/night.
