Nerd of the Week: Episode 1

January 23, 2007

You know, sometimes it hits me that I’m a geek, or a nerd. And I can pretty much admit it now. But then there are times when I want to deny the fact that I am. But then I see something like this, and it makes me happy to be a nerd. I just don’t understand why others have to be embarrassed about playing video games, or using computers or whatever. I don’t udnerstand what’s wrong about letting others know what you enjoy. The human mind will never make sense, i guess. Anyways,  enjoy!

Life Is Great!

December 24, 2006

Wow, I haven’t posted here in a while, huh? Finally, a reason to pull out the ol’ Vim oxygel, and clean this place up. So, what have I been doing that makes me not post here in over 2 months? I will tell you. And don’t be surprised if you hear some of the most stupidest, and undeniably lamest reasons not to updates a blog. But bear with me, it’s been a tough couple of months.

In this celebration of the new year, I’m going to give you some links that have absolutely no relation to Diwali. But enjoy them anyways.

Facebook. To join or not?

October 16, 2006

I’ve signed up for Hi5, Bebo, myspace (actually, only got halfway through the process), and some other online groups, but I dont think I’ve stayed up-to-date with any of them, except one. This one is called Facebook. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s basically like myspace, only simpler, and is very popular among post-secondary students. However, up until recently, it was only open to those with university/college emails. However now anyone can join. And I must say, it is quite nice. I’ve never delved too deep into Myspace or any other social networks, so I wouldn’t know if they have online groups, or a similar structure. Facebook is awesome in the sense that it’s a blog, a photo storage area, a guestbook and a network among friends. People from all over the globe use this, and it’s cool when you meet someone you once knew, or someone that you may have heard of.

Let’s just say, I have my qualms with Myspace (why do most people set their pages as black backgrounds? It’s so depressing it makes me want to cry). Also, Myspace gets really cluttered and annoying when trying to view it. The song feature is cool, but it just makes loading a page that much more of a hassle. And having a “top friends” list…seems kind of demeaning to people. Especially when you thought you were someones best friend, and find out you were beat out by ananymous_hatr2 (aka “That Guy/Girl”).

If you’re having doubts, just try it out. I know a certain Addicted Geek who seems to be enjoying it. He even created his own group to gather other addicted geeks! So just give it a shot, and don’t forget to add me! I don’t like feeling left out, because that is just ignorant!

Best Video in a While

October 7, 2006

This is possibly the best video I have ever seen in a while (It may be old, but sometimes, old is good) :

Btw, that’s so my Halloween  costume…for sure.


First Impressions: Okami (PS2)

September 23, 2006

Okami Header

It would be a complete lie if I said I wasn’t expecting a lot from this game. From the moment I saw the first piece of artwork, I knew I had to have this game. Then, once I saw the game in motion, I starting expecting even more out of it. What was I expecting? Well, you name it. Story, gameplay, music, etc.. And so far, after playing the game for 10+ hours, I can already tell that Okami had preceded my expectations. Let me explain without giving much away.

International Talk like a Pirate Day!

September 18, 2006

That’s right people. Tomorrow, we talk like pirates! Exciting, isn’t it? So, if you aren’t talking like a pirate, be prepared to “walk the plank” as they say.

So, to celebrate such an exciting day, I will be posting some cool pirate links that I find too busy to do anything! Look forward to it, cause it’s going to rock!

While we’re on the subject of Pirates, there is a question that must be answered…

Who would win?

Pirates OR Ninjas

*Sowwy, but because of homework and the likes, there will be no cool pirate links. Maybe in the future, or with some serious requesting.
