Online Passes Suck. Seriously.

19 Oct

Turn your head sideways. WP wouldn't let me edit it.

I could be playing Batman: Arkham City right now, but I’m writing this stupid blog. Why? Because, I have to redeem a code to get extra storyline and gameplay content as Catwoman. It’s a code that comes with all NEW copies of the game (which I purchased) or for $9.99 for the cheapskates that bought used. “What’s the deal, Colt?” you might ask. The deal is that I have to wait about an hour for it to download because my network is crap.  Great. Awesome. I can’t play the SINGLE-PLAYER game in full as soon as I get home because I’m downloading content that was previously suggested to have been on the disc.

[Edit: I’ve actually written most of this blog in TextEdit because the Internet is completely gone at my house. Uploaded after it came back up.]

Real Life Pt. 1

12 Jun

It’s gotten to that point again where I start to feel guilty about not writing anything for this blog ever. No excuses this time. I’ve been kicking around ideas for content. I’ve got a ton of free-time now that I don’t have anymore homework ever. I’ve been really wanting to start some kind of video series. Either doing some kind of video blog or a Let’s Play series. A Let’s Play series being videos of me playing some video game with commentary; it’s a surprisingly popular thing on YouTube these days. Really though, I’m just writing this to do something new. I’m looking for ways to turn my degree and knowledge into a fun hobby and I think this is the way. Or a way. So keep checking back here for fun updates. I promise I’ll update with more content. Pinky promise, even.

Since You Saw Me Last

13 Apr

So maybe I’m reeeeaaal bad at updating regularly. I would like to think that I’ve just been busy with my senior year of school. Yeah that’s it…that’s why I haven’t updated.

So last time, I mentioned I was reading Stranger in a Strange Land. Have I read anymore since my last update? Nope, sorry. One day I’ll post my thoughts on that.

Some things that I have been doing include: learning PHP, general homework, researching law, and playing bro-shooters online.

Secret Cephalopods + Other Stuff

The Other Stuff First

I’ve started reading for fun again. Like actually reading full novels instead of graphic novels or magazines! I’m feeling pretty intellectually stimulated about it actually. I’ve been reading Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger In A Strange Land, which, like basically everything I read, is science fiction. I would say I have maybe read a little less than half of it so far, but I’m impressed. The basic crux of the story deals with a human raised completely by Martians and then thrust back into the complex politics of Earth. The world created in the story has been impressive in its concepts of future Earth, though sometimes a bit old-fashioned (but that’s fair, the book was written in the 60s). I’ll post more thoughts about it when I actually finish it.

So Lady Gaga released a new single not long ago. Not a huge fan of it. Even ignoring the obvious similarities to Madonna’s Express Yourself , Born This Way comes off to me as extremely cheesy. Not to mention it reeks of political soap-boxing too. It makes me sad to say this, because I was actually looking forward to her new album. It may not be a first day buy for me now. All this coming from the guy who jumped at the chance to purchase Lollapalooza tickets to see Lady Gaga. =(

I’m Not Dead

13 Feb

So the last week or so I haven’t done much worth writing about. At least nothing that anyone would want to read about. Here soon, I’m going to start posting more. I’m probably going to start reviewing various things so be on the look out for posts soon. I promise most posts will be much longer and more interesting than this one.  Until then, here is a picture I found on the Internets.

Previously On…

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog.

I have been meaning to sit down and do this for a long time actually, but I am just now getting around to it. Things that have prevented me from doing this earlier include, but aren’t limited to: procrastination, fear, and genuinely being busy. Here I am though! I pressed on and made it to this point.

A good way to start anything (except for maybe certain criminal activities) is with an introduction. I was born in Memphis, TN and I have lived there for quite a few years. I have also lived in Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Arizona for varying amounts of time. I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to my interests. I studied/am studying digital media in college, and I love it. I’m interested in web development. I also enjoy video games and the industry of video games. Occasionally I also take some time to listen to music, read some books, and watch neat-o movies. Some other Colt Trivia facts are Colt is my middle name, I have a strange love for professional wrestling, and I hate tying shoes.When it comes to Mac vs. PC I have no preference; I do believe Linux is for hippies, however. I wear T-shirts and jeans almost exclusively and I pride myself on being listed on the Internet Movie Database.  That should cover the basics.

Because of my previously stated interests, I’m probably going to write about things that vaguely pertain to those. I may also rant or rave about various other pop culture happenings. I’ll probably never speak about politics because I don’t want the controversy and I will also stay away from personal matters, because those are uninteresting and will be posted on my LiveJournal instead.

If you’re still reading this, great! I hope you continue to read and I hope I continue to update! See ya around guys!
