Justin Beiber: Faggy, or faggiest?

“I feel like the Kurt Cobain of my generation, but people just don't understand me.” Justin Beiber said this. God. Fucking. Dammit. THE NERVE! The fucking gall of this, this child, this fucking cookie cutter pop star, to think he could compare himself to... Let me compose myself for a second.


Alright. This is actually good, because it's made me realize that I'm ALSO the Kurt Cobain of my generation, because I want to shoot the 'Kurt Cobain of my generation' in the fucking face.

Heavy Sigh Incoming

I am officially to the point where I need a job, as in super hardcore need. For all you young folk out there, I highly recommend not blowing your Freshman year of college being a jackass and going to parties, especially if you don't have wealthy parents. Then again, if you're a freshman in college, you won't listen to me anyhow. You'll just do the same goddamned thing I did. And young people need to trim their sideburns, and wear belts, I remember back in my day... *ramble*

Ugh, The Past Is Haunting

I left out a lot of games on my top five, but I'm not going to correct it. The thing is, that's what I thought at the time, and it stands as a testament to the fact that I love more games than I can remember in one sitting. As I sat on the apartment balcony, this became quite clear. My roommate and I composed a huge list of great games, which we swore to play through once more. And here I am, re-running through Oblivion, after my vanquishing of Bowser in Super Mario World. Good times, friends. Good times.

Excellency in Indie Game Projects

These are school projects from Digipen, a fancy game-makin' school in Washington. I have already clicked MANY of these, and a lot of them kick ass. I especially recommend Froggle.

Top Five Video Games

Here we go, nothing else to say. No particular order, again.

1. Fallout 2.
-Holy cow, the mother of darkly humored, in-depth RPGs. If you haven't played it, play it. Get it on Good Old Games.
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
-Bitch as much as you want, this game is as close as you can get to a perfect (non-squad-based) FPS.
3. Pokemon Silver/Gold
-Okay, wait. I loved Pokemon Red and Blue, but they're just included in Silver and Gold. And shit just got made better. And they didn't turn all the Pokemon into gay robots yet.
4. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
-Good gameplay, fantastic storyline. I don't go back to any game as much as I go back to this. Alternately, San Andreas could take this spot. I'd almost give it to San Andreas, but I hate having too much stuff to do for 100%. I am a completionist whore on video games, and San Andreas had way too much random crap.
5. Skate 2
-Not since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 have I loved a skateboarding game this much. Excellent concept, worked spectacularly.
6. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
-WHAT?! A sixth one? Yes. I can't go without including this game. The only good stealth game ever made, besides perhaps Thief.

Some honorable mentions include Unreal Tournament 2k4, Starcraft 1 and 2, Half Life, World of Warcraft (yes...), and many others. I should have just made a top 100 list. But there you have it.

Rush Radio

A guy I know runs a site called Rush Radio, which is pretty much what you'd expect from a title. He links to Rush and credits their songs, and basically puts out a free Rush radio station. Give it a listen, because it's pretty good.

The Strangeness of 'The Top Five'

I hate picking things for overall lists. Generally, everything I like has its own merits, and it's difficult to pick from such a huge list (especially music and video games, which is pretty much everything I care about). Plus, some albums or games get lost in my memory, and resurface much later. But I will try.

Top Five Albums (in no order)
1. NOFX - Punk in Drublic
-Just good old fashioned angry punk, with some politics tossed in.
2. System of a Down - Toxicity
-Pretty much my first really good album. Got it at the time I started finding music outside of the mainstream.
3. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
-Sterling drumwork, and maybe one of my favorite albums from the era. Prime example of old metal.
4. Blink-182 - Blink-182 (Tied with Take Off Your Pants And Jacket)
-Very experimental, in every regard: new lyrical direction, revamped sonically, and the drumwork was strange and fantastic, without getting stupid and unlistenable.
5. Lamb of God - Ashes of the Wake (Only because I can't say 'All their albums')
-The best American metal to exist. Period.

Come back in a bit when I do Top Five Video Games.

Haters Gonna Hate

Really, now, internet. Why you so pissed off about blogger money?
