Turtles and Spigots

I am waiting up to see if any sites upload the new Fratellis Album for download, like passalong or napster (both are legal, yo). I am streaming it right now on IMEEM, and I am VERY impressed. The Fratellis are my favorite modern indie band.

One day I was casheiring at my favorite store, and one guy came up, true story, and bought four items. Ok, the first was a card, like for a birthday. no thoguhts about it whatsoever. The next was condoms. That really didn't bother me. Then there Honestly, it did not phase me. People need that stuff for...stuff. The last one was the kicker. One, just one single cucumber. That was enough to earn him the "gross" label. It took most of my energy to keep from simultaneously gagging and laughing. It's a guy thing.

Man, that Fratelli music is WICKED AWEXOME!

I have also been procuring new J-rock music. I have been listening to Hotei Matiyasu, FLOW, and Sambomaster. I hope they make a new Ouendan soon. As popular as it is, it would be in their best interest.

Speaking of Ouendan, I was playing it in the break room at work, as I usually do, and a manager asked me what I was playing. Thinking I had him, I said "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2!" and he smiled and told me he heard great things about that game from other people, and asked me about Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. I'm sorry, but I am a Zelda fan from the wayback, but Phantom Hourglass just really wasn't the best it COULD have been.

There are not many games I am furiously stalking at the moment. I am curious as to whether there will be a new DS, read: TOTALLY new. I am waiting for Strong Bad's Computer Game for Attractive People, which just announced that it is delayed until July (insert sad face here), but hey, I'm cool with that.

STILL loving the Fratellis music.

I just finished watching season 2 of Lost. I saw the first and third last week, so I am all caught up. I will probably watch the third one again, but probably something else inbetween. Probably Psych or Eureka, since both are coming out in the coming month. I hate the summer hiatus.

My friend John was a serious one..........will he ever learn?......

I am almost glad I had these last few days off. It has been like a spiritual rehab. I was frustrated and filled with rage. I had thoughts that I should not have, and it took everything to not say much. People KNEW that I wasn't me. I had people coming up to me, asking me questions, like who bothered me, etc., and I used the excuse that I wasn't feeling good, which was also true. I lost nearly all appetite and had not gotten a lot of sleep.

Anyways, I am in NO way over all of this junk, but hey, baby steps. Life is not like a sitcom, whenre situations and feelings are made better in 30 minutes, or fine by the next episode. Anyways, I am just trying to forgetting all of that. With that being said, I still have "trust issues" and whatnot, but hey, you're all tired of hearing my emo/alternative music enducing, head banging, trauma. Meh.

Mountain Dew is doing that "Dew Mocracy" thing with three new flavors, and I already have a favorite. The "Revolution", Light Blue, Mixed Berry one. They all were underwhelming, but it is the one I can drink well. It also makes me belch! (For those of you who don't know, I can not burp to save my life. The rest of my family can burp on command, but evidently, I was a defect)

Nintendo's Virtual Console, as far as North America is concerned, almost dead to me. Wii Ware has promise, but I can not get much because of space. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT SPACE, NINTY? Way too many people are getting frustrated with this problem, which could have been avoided by having an actual hard drive, like the OTHER gaming systems....

While watching Lost, I was going to my favorite recapping website,, and one of the funniest things about the first recapper was his insistance to reffering Boone as Boone, God's Friggen Gift to Humanity. Every time. Even when the new recapper started, the first time he said Boone, God help me if I reffer him to anything other than Boone, God's Friggen Gift to Humanity. On this note, I want to verbatim this out of one of the recaps, which never fails to make me laugh.

"I've gotten several emails asking me to stop referring to this character as Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity. Wrote one reader, Goofy McTwatTwat:

Hey Mr. Kwa. Can you please cut back on writing "God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity" every time you write "Boone"? I think it's pretty funny, but it would be funnier just one time in a recap. Over and over again gets laborious.
Just my two cents.

No dice, Goofy McTwatTwat! I don't refer to Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity as Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity because it's funny. I refer to Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity as Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity because that is the man's proper and full name. So it would be rude of me to shorten that full name, just as it would be rude of me to shorten your full name, Goofy McTwatTwat. Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity he remains."


There are other things that they have said that make me laugh, but I will save it for another time (I HAVE to mention the one about Jin in the future, because even though it was only done twice, I now do it out loud everytime Jin does something...).

I think that is enough randomness for one day. I will blog sometime in the future, and yes, I have not forgotten 1) The podcast 2) The Awexome one 3) The one that involves pictures.

Oh yeah, and check out "Here We Stand" by The Fratellis. some of the best music I have heard in forever.
