Another problem in Iraq..

Do you know what having +5 means

Diablo 3 in the making..

I can remember when this game first came out, I was living on Santa Barbra in Cape Coral.. It was a Friday and I had nothing to do for the weekend. (ok ok.. I probably had something I needed to get done but Monica was nice enough to let me play..) So I popped the game into the computer, connected the computer to my TV and didn't get up for 24 hours straight and only reason I got up was because I finished the game.. This game while hack and slash.. is awesome, always cutting edge graphics and amazing story line and super addicting. In some ways I look forward to release date (unknown at current) in other ways I do not. I do not have time to enjoy it, I do not have time for it to consume me. I played Diablo 2 for 6 months - TWICE. I got bored with the game after the first 6 months... then a couple years later played it AGAIN for 6 months.

Ohh the addiction, the sweet sweet addiction..

Nice... food for thought during the next election..

Personally... I respect our troops 100% and support them till the end. But this is out of control. We have gained NOTHING by being in this war, even the Iraqi people are not better off. If you want to bring up the fact that Saddam gassed a bunch of innocents (a long time ago) I would like to point out the number of Iraqi's our smart bombs killed just to "free" the people (one site puts the number around 1.2 million) or remove the WMD's that never existed or squash the al qaeda link that again never existed...

USE this FREAKING money to fix OUR problems, nothing against any Iraqis but last time I check gas was over 4 a gallon (are we not in fighting this war for the second largest oil producing country in the world, you would think we could work out some kind of trade ohhh I don't know freedom from oppression for some cheap gas, perhaps...), unemployment is WAY up and at least 6 people I know are losing their homes or property and going into foreclosure. 1 person I know is not getting the best medical care because he cannot afford it and we spend how much to fight this war.. This is stupid, wake up America!

Still makes me wanna cry..


Very funny (you really only need to watch a minute or two to get the point though..


Well I did it, I made it though the night in a haunted hotel room and... nothing, not a single ghost not even a cold chill in the corner, very uneventful. We did have a great time in the very old city but I never once felt like the place was haunted, I guess I may not be "spiritual" enough or perhaps I offended the ghosts by not being a believer.. who knows.

I will post some pics to this entry when I get my camera out (I think it is still in my car).

Tomorrow I am going to do some filming for one of my friends at a UU church, I am not sure if anyone has ever read my religion blog but I am a person who believes in god, but has no specific religion. This pretty much defines UU or Unitarian Universalist, so when he asked me if I would come watch his sermon and video tape it at a UU church (I already had thought about going) I was more then happy to attend and help him out.

Now on to the camera he gave me to play with and then tape him with.. Holy Cow, this thing is a beast. It cost around 4k and is the type that some movies are filmed on. Amazing camera to say the least. I spent around an hour just watching a movie on how to make it work. Then I messed with the camera another couple of hours trying to get it do what I wanted. Went back to the video and watched some more then come to find out there is one button that tells the camera you have no idea what you are doing (green square) and it then sets the four million options up so that a dummy could get it right.

I will try to post the video that I make from the sermon so you can all have a look at my skills and a peek into the church that has a no rules god.

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways

I may have some child left in me..

Second Amendment..

Man Stabs, Kills 7 in Tokyo Retail District
TOKYO, June 8 -- Screaming as he randomly stabbed shoppers with a hunting knife, a 25-year-old man killed seven people and injured 11 others at lunchtime Sunday in a Tokyo retail district.

For all the gun haters out there.. please realize that guns don't kill people, people kill people. All you are doing by rallying for more gun control is keeping the guns of the hands of the good guys..

I am normally not one to incite controversy, but here is a well put email that would like to share that goes with my feelings on the issue.

Gun Wisdom--The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain.
All else is supplemental. As John Steinbeck once said:

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a .45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

But wait, there's more! I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said 'Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!' To which I said, Of course it's loaded, it won't work without bullets!' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your house?' My reply was, 'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.' To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." -G. K. Chesterton

Kinda dirty make sure the kids are away..

Ohh the fond memories of Tequila (NOT)


This is what happens when you call the 1-900 number from my earlier post...

Amazing what photoshop can do.

Wonder what deep layers of psychological damage photo-retouching has done to our world. Almost every magazine ad or photo has some form of touch up done to it. Is this a good thing?

One of my old favorites that I wanted to share
