The “Christians Against Slipknot” page on Facebook is just ridiculous. Trolls or not, its pretty sick at times. Today they made a comparison between Wacken and Auschwitz. Really? A music festival is comparable to one of the most horrible things that ever happened?
Are there really people like that out there? Don’t answer that lol.
And “against Slipknot” … they seem opposed to all metal; maybe consider a name change?
The funny thing is, most people I know into metal couldn’t give a fuck what you do. Who you are. What you believe. You do what the fuck you want. For the most part, I laugh at the stupidity and then get one with my day.
But some of the crap they post … fuuuuuuck. Christians? Saying stuff like that? Yeah, OK.
Stick of Truth is quite fun.
So far it’s like playing an actual episode of South Park. Certainly come along way since those crap N64 games, although if memory serves, I didn’t actually mind the racing one.
Playing the PC version, which I’ve given to understand is left in-tact. I’m still not quite sure why Ubisoft censored the console versions, but what are you gonna do.
life is sucky.
A sucky thing happened to me today but I’m doing my best not to let it ruin my current mood.
It’s hard to be rational and just remember that sometimes … shit happens. It’s especially hard when it happens to you. But, its not the end of the world. Sure might feel like it, but it isn’t, and it will get better.
I attempted to make cookies. I feel like I missed an ingredient … butter, sugar, flour … are you supposed to you use eggs? I didn’t use eggs …
Anyway, they are still nice. Solid as a rock, but nice hahahaha
Men and baking … it always goes wrong. And we don’t give a fuck. Whatever happens is still nom.
I’ve been thinking quite a lot about music, and where I started with it.
Suppose it starts with my mum and dad. Who have completely opposite tastes in music. Dad loves his heavy metal and generally heavy music which my mum finds horrific. She on the other hand is more of your Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Celine Dion, Shania Twain pop music loving person.
She can just about handle the Chili Peppers.
I didn’t really mind either when I was growing up, although Celine Dion was the point where I thought to myself “no, I don’t like this”
When I was about 16 and learning the guitar at school, my dad decided to break out his turntable and vinyl. Many late nights were had, much to my mums dismay, poor woman was trying to sleep. I was shown how to handle Vinyl, and told “if its too loud, you’re too old” which is something I will always remember. His collection included stuff like Iron Maiden, The Cult, The The, Ted Nugent, AC/DC, Big Audio Dynamite, etc. Occasionally interspersed with my mums embarrassing history (“The Nolans” for god sakes. She even owns the Wham Last Christmas single. ON VINYL! I have no words lol).
The ones I liked the most were Maiden, Ted Nugent and The Cult. AC/DC were good, but it was a bit hit and miss. I really liked the song Touch Too Much, but a lot of the others just didn’t really click with me. Wasn’t really until I heard Back In Black that I got into more of their stuff.
And then on CD he also had some stuff that he didn’t have on Vinyl, either because he let someone borrow it and never got it back, or it broke or whatever. Such as Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Nirvana and things like that. The Motorhead album, which was some kind of best of, had one of my favorite songs on … ever. Even to this day. Killed By Death. I was lucky enough at about 17-ish to go and see them live.
They were at Oxford New Theater, and I had a ticket for the balcony. Which I never ended up at, of course. I had no idea where I was going, so I ended up down the the front and took a seat. At the time, I didn’t know I was in the wrong place. When I told my mum after, she told me that I shouldn’t have been there, I was supposed to be in the balcony. Oops.
Today, most of what I like is heavy music, metal, rock, what have you. It’s interesting to see what paths I’ve taken on my own. It’s this whole thing of, “its ok to copy/emulate something at first but eventually you need to do your own thing” and that’s exactly what happened. I was into what my dad was into, but now I’m into my own thing(s). I still love the stuff he loves, but there’s more out there.
Unfortunately, my mum still likes Celine Dion.
I got a new phone today …
HTC Desire 500. I’ll move onto that in a minute.
I’ve spent the past two years or so using naught but Samsung Galaxys (S2, S3 and then S3 Mini), so a change is always nice. I got quite used to the TouchWiz (is that what they call it?) UI, and generally just the way they are.
I came from HTC’s though. First I had a HTC Wildfire. The very original one, with the trackpad/ball in it. Too small for my fingers, so I moved to the HTC Desire. I had that for some time, and then went up to the Desire HD, and that was easily one of the best phones I’ve ever used. Just a great phone in general, I don’t know anyone who had anything bad to say about it. And then I moved on to the Galaxy S2.
So the Desire 500. Is awesome. HTC Sense has matured a lot since I last used it, but it still looks cool and still lets me organise it the way I like it. The sound from it is phenomenal, at least to me. The sound from Samsung Galaxys has always been a tad lackluster I find. I could never quite find a nice balance, just something that was “meh … close enough”. Sound on HTC’s seems to always be awesome, but then they tend to build in sound functions such as Dolby, SRS, and … “beatsaudio” ¬_¬ Whilst the last one is mostly just a stupid name people insist on paying large amounts of money for (also that ripped off the bebo logo, am I the only one who ever noticed this?), it seems to make a difference to me, and a pretty cool one at that. Although I do not (and will never) use beats headphones. I use Sennheiser CX200 earphones which I’ve had for some time, one of the best sounding earphones out there I think. The screen is big and clear, call quality is good and the design of the phone is nice. It keep and collect your fingerprints however so a case might be a good idea (which I’m going to order) but I’ve no complaints whatsoever.
Its speedy, works with everything I used and the battery life so far seems pretty great. The camera is also stunning. Bright and clear, with a few instagram-y filters by default.
There’s also another thing that impressed me. Although not strictly exclusive to this phone, it comes with a “kid mode” built in. I don’t have kids, but I do have two nieces who love games like Cut The Rope, Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds and so on. The eldest owns an Innotab, and this feature just completely craps all over it. Zoodles it’s called, free app as far as I can tell for Android and iOS. It comes with games, books (to which you can record your own narration or use the nice people it comes with) as well as a doodle thing, and you can always download more apps, as well as add your own games that are suitable. The eldest immediately went for a Dora game that came with it and I couldn’t get my phone back after that.
So, good phone.
I’ll shut up now :)
That’s when you know its time to give up. Not used this e-mail account for … since 2008 maybe? lololololol
Whilst looking for old accounts under my name on the internet to de-activate since I don’t use them (aka I mostly Googled myself lol) I found a load of old photo’s from years ago, and some stuff I was into … the band “Vex Red” instantly sounded familiar, but I have no idea how or why I know them.
Also a load of old pictures from the Flat I used to live in, and possessions at the time. As well as painful ex-gf pics ahaha.
Also trying to remember what accounts were used where and which emails were used ¬_¬ I’ve been everywhere on the internet.
