What the

It has been over another year. My last blog post was posted on 6/20/2010, yet I feel like I posted that more like 3 years ago. Sort of strange to say the least.

Now it's off to Chicago for some good food.

Time Lapse!

It looks like it has been over a year since I posted on here. Here's a quick list of things that quickly come to mind of things I have done since my last post:

  1. spent another 2 years with my lovely gf doing crazy things like eating ridiculously spicy ramen, and letting her drink too much on her birthdays
  2. spending time with Mandy
  3. started playing hockey
  4. joined a roller hockey team @ bladium. pandas!
  5. took part in winning a championship with the pandas in my first season
  6. took a ice hockey class
  7. taking another ice hockey class
  8. bought a Canon 7D to start taking pictures at a higher level
  9. started filming videos with the Canon 7D thanks to Philip Bloom's work using Canon DSLRs
  10. went to Japan for the first time
  11. went to Japan's premiere game show TGS for the first time
  12. went to a maid cafe in Japan wtf?
  13. ate uni in Japan for the 2nd time ever and enjoyed it this time around
  14. watched a company I joined 3 years ago with only 20ish people grow to now have almost 200 employees!
  15. watched that same company acquire 2 other companies and receive even more funding because investors belive in us
  16. being proud to be a part of that company and all the good people
  17. spending time with some of my close friends who are also co-workers
  18. going to super bowl parties, clubs, dinners, trips with my high school friends
  19. going to a freakin Street Fighter tournament
  20. got a puppy with my gf. a pomeranian named Wiki, who is pretty mischievous and loves food like Mandy does. At least, he goes to do his business outdoors now.
  21. saw a lot more of my high school friends get married and partaking in one
  22. purchased my first Apple product. An i7 15" Macbook Pro, and still pissed off by some of the retardedness of OSX. It's now for Final Cut Studio and Adobe Lightroom 3.
  23. going to SJ Sharks games

That's all for now. I suppose my twitter probably has a good chunk of what has gone on in the last 2 years. Writing up a blog definitely takes way more time than typing 140 characters at a time. It took quite a while just to look up things to link stuff up! And here's a ghetto time-lapse video I tried to make with the fog that was floating over a hill at Tomales Bay.

twitter acksh

I haven't touched this in a while, but I've been keeping steady with my micro blog updates through twitter.

The other day, I finally realized that one of the co-founders of twitter was indeed also the creator of blogger. I knew he had left blogger at one point after it was sold to Google, but did not realize he had a hand in creating the new blog-like tool known as twitter. That man, is a genius.

And Twitter explained from evhead from common craft:

Why the Wii?

It has not stopped amazing me that the Wii is still doing so well, yet in reality does not have much to offer after being in the market for a year. I can probably count all of the good games for that system on one hand for crying out loud. One of which, no one probably even heard of unless they are in tune with the higher tier gaming blogs and sites out there (Zack & Wiki). Do people really think that it's a really good system simply from what they have seen it can potentially do? Have they actually played any game besides Wii Sports (one of the better games btw)? Do they realize that the controls really aren't what they seem and more than likely a gimmick and unresponsive? I really don't think people know this. Especially the parents that go out and just buys their kids the machine. It is amazing what a little motion sensing, a brand name of Nintendo, and a cheap system using 7 year old technology can do. Hats off to Nintendo for achieving that feat. But as a note to the wise, the Wii isn't what it was cracked out to be. It's a nice change, but nothing to go apeshit over.

And after finishing Z&W, my Wii is now collecting dust again. SMG? Bleh, I think I've had enough Mario for over 10 years.

Black Friday

I decided that I needed to write down what I spent money on this month. Dell computer and 24in LCD for about 700. 42in Panasonic Plasma 1080p for about 1200. A bunch of miscellaneous stuff. Several Xbox 360 games.

Halo 3. Tues. 9/25/2007. Midnight.
That is about all I need to say. I also predict over 200 million in first day sales.

/laugh at iphone buyers

http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=42178 Good old Apple and owning their loyalist. I laughed when the phone was first released and purchased by idiots, and I will laugh again now for the idiots now realizing they are idiots. Give Apple a month to two to drill through these remaining 8GB models and they'll release the better 3G version. Seriously, why do people even think about paying 300-600 for a 2.5G phone.

Yahoo! Widgets

For the past few days, I have found myself toying around with Yahoo! Widgets. It is a really cool application that lays the foundation for people to create small apps that can range from completely stupid to infinitely useful.

I was led to this app when I was searching for a replacement for Post It! Notes because I had grown tired of it. I found Yahoo! Notepad, which was a widget and worked great. Since then, I have been checking out a bunch of other neat widgets including the Flickr widget that pretty much allows me to do everything with my photos without loading the website itself. I've also installed the Yahoo! Weather widget, which is one of the more visually appealing weather apps I've seen, and also not very intrusive if you don't want it to be.

DeepDiscount.com

Yesterday, deepdiscount.com had a variety of games priced around $1-6 dollars. Some games were good, while others weren't so good. Obviously, because of the ridiculously good price it was probably too good to be true. I was able to checkout with over $300 in games for $30. Today, I received the email that it was cancelled because they had a price mistake. Ok fine, but seriously, what the hell are they really doing. Is this company doing some sort of fake advertising to drive page views to their shopping site or do they really stupidly mis-price their products. I heard that a week or two ago, they did nearly the same exact thing with their dvd site over at deepdiscountdvd.com. It seems to me this is some bullshit way to get people to register, input their information and buy some stuff they will just cancel because they have a disclaimer that they have the right to refuse purchases of mis-priced items.

I guess I want to say is that that is bad business, and if it's some marketing ploy, that's bad marketing because I will never ever shop from there ever again. I will also not recommend it to anyone. F that shit.

Other Congrats

Congrats to the class of 2007.

My brother, Mandy, Louisa, Anne and uh whoever else is graduating this year. Yeah, I can't think of anyone right now, my bad. I must be getting old and forgetting things. ;P

People Getting Together

Wow, when people I know personally are getting married, it's a pretty good sign of getting old! My dear high school buddy, and partner-in-crimebadminton, JoEllen, got married to Mr. Ben last year. My other friend from middle and high school, who I grew up playing sports with, Chris (who also happened to date JoEllen at one point, dang these two are quick) is going to be finally tying the knot with Raquel in less than two months! And a friend, s to the b, aka Johnny, who I've only met once or twice, , but have gotten to known quite well over years, will also be tying the knot with his significant other, Thao, later on this year. But wait, there's more, a cool dude I met when I worked at Gamers.com, Stephen, as of today, is now engaged with his long time gf, Cathy, who is equally as cool.

Congrats all of you!
