Hello. Goodbye. 2013.

I know its been a few days since I have last posted (sorry y’all) and I had a humongous post planned to make up for it but I guess that will never surface.. it exists I swear. This year has been a hectic roller coaster ride for me and by roller coaster I don’t mean Jeepers type roller coaster, I mean Kingda Ka 12 times type up and down roller coaster. A lot has happened in my life since New Years Day 2013, but instead of recapping the year by event I will do a mini comparison of myself (plus I cannot remember all of it):

Before:

  • Jobless.
  • Broke.
  • Tiny 135 lbs.

After:

  • NG employed.
  • Not broke.
  • Survivor of the nonexistant Cicada Attack.
  • Became a gym mouse
  • Co-creater of the greatest Youtube channel KFCSBTTADEDKTADGAFLLBBLSBFBproductions Ferwangatang.
  • Conqueror of Shenandoah Mountain.
  • Flew on a plane with only friends.
  • OBXCrew Member
  • Was granted the Indian nickname of “Runs with Bulls”
  • Became a Tough Mudderer..er?
  • Visited the most magical place on earth.
  • Played my last Turkeybowl ever.
  • Relationship reached lucky number 7
  • Fantasy League Champion in 2/4 leagues.
  • Ending the year as a fatty 180 lbs.

Looking at this comparison, I feel content with the direction my life is going. At times I feel like I am wasting away but leave it to a blog post to bring everything into perspective. I guess I should blog more…

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all of the Fathers out there who have been there for their kids in one way or another whether physically, mentally, or spiritually. Happy Father’s Day to the Fathers who want to be with their kids but are unable to. Happy Father’s Day to the Fathers that have been able to support the bearer of their child. Happy Father’s Day to the Fathers that have acted as Father figures for those who need it. Happy Father’s Day to the Fathers that have raised their children to be able to survive in this crazy world of ours. Happy Father’s Day to Fathers who love their children.

Happy Father’s Day to my Father for not being any of the things I just mentioned. Happy Father’s Day to my Father for never being around. Happy Father’s Day to my Father for leaving me alone with my Mother. Happy Father’s Day to my Father for never teaching me anything. Happy Father’s Day to my Father who was completely absent in my life until I met him for a few hours at 20 years old. Happy Father’s Day to my Father who gave me $200 when he finally saw me and left never to be seen again. Happy Father’s Day to my Father for not instilling his values and moralities in me. Happy Father’s Day to my Father for showing me how to not be a Father.
Fuck you Happy Father’s Day Rizalino Fernandez.

Happy Father’s Day to my Mother, for being everything I needed in my life.

12:46 – Woah this looks like Twisted Metal? But with tanks only.. What is this? Not feeling it.

12:49 – Free with Gold? It better be free. Yeah It’s free. I guess I’ll try World of Tanks. As long as it means a continued support for 360.

12:53 – So far I haven’t seen any of the “exclusives” that I was promised. I am pretty sure all of these are gonna be on the PS4 as well. Come on Microsoft. Give me something.

12:56 – Ryse? Probably gonna be a blockbuster hit but..

12:57 – Besides the graphics on these games. I am not “blown away” by any of these. I don’t feel super excited for them. I hope that’s not my age speaking…. #fromthewombtothetombgamertillidie

13:19 – Spark looks like that one game… that Arcade game… for XBLA… what was it…

13:20 – From Dust! This game looks like some game I would play. But I don’t want to anymore cause this commentator says things like, “Let’s go buddy” and “Let’s rock and roll”

13:22 – This commentator… I wonder if he has the script written on his hand.

13:23 – I saw Geometry Wars! I would get hype for Geometry Wars 3.

13:24 – The only thing I would make me want to use Smartglass would be if they made it super interactive like a VMU. (Bet none of you even know what a VMU is…)

13:43 – Yay volume! It was getting a little awkward there.

13:47 – So much is happening in this trailer. It reminded me that I don’t think I have seen an exclusive yet for Xbox One… I bet it’s the last game shown.. I bet its…

13:48 – Halo? Yeah Halo I am calling it now its Halo. Or super troll plot twist… Jak and Daxter.

13:50 – Sike sike I am an idiot there have been a lot. Sorry followers. You can unfollow me for my incompetence now. But I bet the last game is still Halo or Jak & Daxter.

Factual Fridays #4

I am unsure where this pose originated from but a very popular pose in Filipino culture is the “pogi pose” (where pogi is slang for guwapo meaning handsome in Tagalog). This is a pose where someone sticks out there pointer and thumb under their chin. I have no idea how or why this means handsome but in ASL, no not age/sex/location you 90s monsters I am talking about American Sign Language, it is the sign for Lesbian. So next time you are at a Filipino party and you see some guys pogi posing for a picture, you can reassure yourself that they are probably lesbians.

Lesbians

Holluh at PM for the picture

Lux Aeterna

During this past weekend I had the displeasure of watching a movie that I heard so much about but knew little of. This movie was Requiem for a Dream. I won’t say much about the movie in case you haven’t seen it (plus I am feeling too lazy) but I highly recommend watching this movie. It is artistically directed and has a gut wrenching very possible somewhat relate-able plot with an ending that doesn’t disappoint. Plus it has an amazing soundtrack including the song Lux Aeterna, except now when you hear it all you will think about is this movie, which could be a good or bad thing (damn you PM!).

Requiem for a Dream

Here is a little speech from the movie by the amazing (oscar-robbed) Ellen Burstyn.

It’s a reason to smile, already. It makes tomorrow alright. What have I got, Harry? Why should I even make the bed or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I’m alone. Seymour’s gone, you’re gone, I have no one to take care of. Anybody. Everybody. What do I have? I’m lonely, Harry.

…reading it does the speech no justice. Just watch the movie.

Factual Fridays #3

Recently (as in two days ago), a friend of mine showed me a link of something that I have been doing wrong my whole life. I took this fact with great despair/surprise since I have corrected people, fully confident, that they were wrong and I was right. So I dedicate this FF to all of you and I apologize for my ignorance in this life-changing discovery.

Steve Wilhite

Steve Wilhite, CompuServe CIM and creator of the Graphics Interchange Format (.gif), has finally put an end to the great debate for the pronunciation of the word ‘GIF’. “The Oxford English Dictionary accepts both pronunciations,” Mr. Wilhite said. “They are wrong. It is a soft ‘G,’ pronounced ‘jif.’ End of story.” The GIF format was invented in 1987 and the pronunciation is based off of the peanut butter brand Jif. Since many CompuServe employees liked to spoof the Jif commercials with their own saying of, “Choosy developers choose GIF”.

Once again world, please accept my humble very sincere apology. I will offer you a series of GIFs to show how sorry I am.
(get it gifts-gifs/jifs! Haha! …Nevermind.. my humor is wasted on you mortals.)

When Tumblrs Invade — Coming to a Blog Site Near You

About one hour ago (at the time of writing this), Yahoo buys Tumblr for 1.1 Billion dollars. I am not really sure of how this will directly affect the site or how its fuckyeah obey k-pop loving hipster hookahsmoking pornwatching 90skids harrypotterlovingtwilighthating meme reblogger blogger tumlbr..ers are gonna react. But just in case here is your heads up. I hope they don’t invade this and turn WordPress into the “new Tumblr”. Well, I guess each blog is what each blogger makes it but I had a Tumblr which quickly transformed from blog to reblog city once my Dashboard filled with non blog related posts. I guess that is my fault but at least on here there is nothing of the sort to tempt me. I hope it stays that way.YahooTumblrLogos-617x416

Factual Fridays #2

Back in the day when I first got Comcast cable I was super ridiculously excited about having this channel called G4. This channel was ALL video games alldayerrday. It was the best until they decided to go all MTV and now they only show reality shows.. Anyway, there was this interesting show called Icons which did a quick 30 minute bio on an important person in the video game industry spawning the knowledge I know below.

Super Plumber Mario - TeamLando

The creator of Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, was originally a graphic designer for a gaming company. The game famous game where Mario is jumping over barrels from Donkey Kong was originally a Popeye game. They lost the license so it was up to Miyamoto to figure something out. All they had to do was replace the spinach with a hammer, Olive with Peach, the big buff guy who’s name I can’t remember with Donkey Kong, and Popeye with Mario. BAM. Also, Mario was originally a carpenter but with the games concept they decided to make him a plumber who is working on clearing the underground pipes of New York. Also Boo, the flying laughing annoying ghost is a character based off of Miyamoto’s wife. He wanted to somehow make her a character and one day his Wife (who is normally quiet and timid) blew up on him for working so much so Boo is a reflection of his wife. When Mario looks at Boo the ghost gets smaller and hides but when he turns away the ghost expands menacingly.
