Trick or Treat, now give me the DVD's

Well its Halloween kiddies. I hope you got your trick or treating out of the way. Personally I never did. Guess I’m too old. Oh well.

One my way home, I went through the mall. Somehow the walk doesn’t seem so long in climate control comfort. Anyway the mall encourages trick or treaters of the young set. Sort of makes sense, the little ones who aren’t old enough to go out with their friends still get to enjoy the spirit of the holiday without any of the potential dangers. So I was watching the little children and their parents walk by and I thought, why couldn’t I trick or treat in the mall? The difference is that I wouldn’t want candy. I would want other stuff. So I’m compiled a virtual Halloween night, trick or treating in Chinook Centre.

Sears: There’s someone bland about Sears but I’ll take a new refrigerator out of the deal.

Britches: I’ll take a suit. I’m always looking for something nice to wear.

Athletes World: A pair of those insanely expensive shoes will do.

Bell World: Give me that new HDTV PVR that looks so nice, sitting there on the shelf. I swear it’s calling my name. Oh and throw in the dual antenna as well. I’ll need it.

The Sony Store: MMM How about a big ass Plasma TV.

Japan Camera: A digital camera would be cool.

Jacob Lingerie: Ummm, how about you ladies model some of the wares?

Quizno's Classic Subs: Hey, I have to get something to eat out of this place.

Veggirama: Now that’s a dirty trick. NO WAY!!

EB Games: There isn’t a Halloween bag big enough to get all the things I want in that place.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. Anyway, take care and have a SAFE HALLOWEEN EH!

Because I'm starting to get lazy every Thursday.

The truth is that I don't want to put too much work into a post when it will be eclipsed by the Photo Friday in a few hours. I did promise that I would have it up at 12:01am from now on.

Another thing VISIT MY MAP AND ADD YOURSELF. The add yourself function in on the right under the pic. Don't annoy the Bears.

I don't mean to rent crappy DVD's

First thing. Why isn’t anyone putting a pin in my MAP !!! Ok back to normally scheduled blog babble,

I remember when I use to go on and on about how rules. I still believe that, honestly I do, but lately they seem to be going out of their way to piss me off.

It all started when they opened a second distribution centre here in Calgary. The first thing I thought was “WOO HOO, now I’ll be able to get my DVD’s OVERNIGHT instead of waiting 2 days” WRONG !!! For some reason, it was taking 3 or 4 days for DVD’s to arrive. Did I mention that it was taking 2 days when shipped from Ottawa, which is thousands of km away? So I call and WAAA WAA about it and they also agreed that there was a problem.

Problem Number 2. Zip has a policy that of sending box sets in order so, for example when I rent a box set, they send the DVD’s in sequence, disc 1 then 2 and so on. This time they send Sopranos, Season 1 disc 1 and 2 and then they send Smallville Season 1, disc 3. WHAT THE!!! I never say DVD 1 and 2. The good news is that they sent the other DVD’s free. I think they had too because what has occurred what in direct violation of their FAQ.

Now they’ve seemed to have fixed their other issues so I’m pretty happy. That is I was pretty happy until Problem Number 3 showed up. Now I can have 4 DVD’s out at a time, and I have 2 slots that are ASAP (as soon as possible, DUH). Well they seem to be ignoring the ASAP selection and are sending me fine selections like Masters Of Poker: Phil Hellmuth's Million Dollar Poker System and t.A.T.u.: Screaming For More. I swear I must have been drunk when I put those on my list.

Hopefully they’ll get their crap together and start sending me my ASAP titles, but until then I’m going to bitch and complain about that, and the fact that no one is putting a pin in my MAP.

I miss Legos

Here’s the plan. I want to win the lottery so I can stay at home and play with Legos all day (that way I’ll never meet that special someone and that I will be a UBERDORK for the rest of my life). OK I don’t want to spend all that time playing with Legos but I did find some today and it brought back some memories of my childhood.

Alright, the truth was that I ended in Zellers (It’s a Canadian thing) and I was in the toy section, looking for action figures to use for my next vidcast (if you haven’t seen the first one then I’m extremely disappointed). Anyway, I ended up in the Legos toys and I started to have fond memories of playing with my Legos as a kid.

I remember the hours and hours of fun I would have playing with my Legos building all these different things, from a space ship to a full scale video camera. I remember a time of innocence where I could just sit down and with a bunch of coloured pieces of plastic , I would create my own world, not like the Fisher Price Sesame Street set my grandparents had, where the extra guy was the sniper, (OK I need help). but to create a whole new world of my choosing.

I remember being part of a Lego club, where I would get a monthly newsletter and I would build things for their monthly contests, get my parents to take a picture and send it in. The problem was by the time my dad go around to developing the film, the contest was OVER !!!

I guess I find myself missing part of my innocence. Not having to worry about the rent, bills, groceries or anything like that. I was just a kid, with his Legos and not a care in the world.

Now featuring more crap that I pulled out of my ass

I must have been tired because a nap turned into a day log sleep. I ended up sleeping fro 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Not a good thing but I guess my body needed it. Now I know what everyone is thinking. WHERE THE PODCAST? I’m doing some pre-productions stuff for it right now but I will have it recorded and up tomorrow.

Now some is probably saying….”He’s probably busy playing City of Heroes again” and that’s not true….not really. I’ve been playing the City of Villains Beta as well, but I did sleep the whole day away.

Back to the Podcast, the reason why I’m not recording it till Sunday is because I need to edit some sounds bytes from the Dawn and Drew show. Just one actually, it the greatest call in EVER and I want to share it with you. I just hope Dawn and Drew forgive me.

Orginally I wasn’t going to post today but…since I got lazy on Thursday, I decided to post something now and make this promise. FROM NOW ON, THE PHOTO FRIDAY WILL GO UP AT 12:01AM ON FRIDAY. I hope this makes everyone happy (including Jay).

I have one question that needs to be asked though. WHY HASN’T VICS STARTED HER OWN PODCAST? Using a standard microphone hooked into you PC, with the free PodProducer software and Podblaze, producing a podcast is free. Oh and if I can do it, as badly as I can, then someone with talent like Vics can do it as well.

Anyway, I know people are looking for something, so instead of a podcast, with the help of my cell phone, I’ve created my first VIDCAST. So enjoy Tales from the Great White North the Vidcast.

Did I sell out?

I’ll be honest, part of me feels like sold out with yesterday’s post. Some game publisher gets me to advertise their game for nothing. Part of me feels like I sold out, but guess what. I don’t give a rat’s ass.

For all the people who think that I sold out, I would like to remind you that I have the PEPSI logo on the left side of my blog. I would also like to mention that my Secret Geek Blog is a rip off of Google. I’ve also mention that I might as well have Google tattooed to my ass on a couple of occasions.

Let’s face it, everyone wear logos for major corporations and the yahoos out there who think that wearing a parody of that icon means that they haven’t sold out, then they’re just kidding themselves. When someone see a parody of Ronald MacDonald, they still think about that food and basically that’s what the company wants so they still won.

A remember a few years ago when we had the G8 out in Kananaskis, just outside the city. We had a bunch of anti-everything protesters running around the city; protesting this and that. Personally my favorite demonstration was the naked people outside The Gap downtown. I just wish there would have been more women in that protest.

I remember reading a column in the Calgary Sun where she commented that the protesters were wearing Nikes and Gap clothing with the tags, suddenly removed, so don’t tell me everyone doesn’t sell out at one point or another.

Whenever we recommend a product to a friend, don’t we sort of become a minion for that company? Sure we truly believe the endorsement we give but are we not becoming walking Google Ads?

I guess what I’m trying to say is …..CHECK OUT STUBBS THE ZOMBIE FOR THE PC, MAC AND XBOX. MMM BRAINS !!!

Sorry, I put way too much set up for that joke.

I got this e-mail from somebody from a software development company last week. Apparently she took interest in the zombie post that no one else gave a rat’s ass about. I’m not going to go into the details but she mentioned that there’s this game coming out very soon that they developed called Stubbs the Zombie.

I’ve looked through the links to all the martial and this game looks really cool. Now people are saying, “yeah yeah another game with zombies, big deal”, BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT. IN THIS GAME YOU GET TO EAT BRAINS!!!! Yeah you get to be the zombie. I admit that I also watched a review of the game on Electric Playground, but it really looks great.

Personally, I’ve always want to wander around in a 1950’s futuristic setting, moaning and eating brains. That’s how your character gains health. HOW COOL IS THAT. MMMM BRAINS. Just like those old movies.

I’ve been looking at the promotional material and you can play Co-op, HOW COOL IS THAT? You and your buddies wandering around in the game EATTING BRAINS !!!. MMM BRAINS.

Honestly I’m really impressed and I hope other people will check it out, its coming out for the PC, Mac, Xbox and………WHAT ???? NO PLAYSTATION 2 Version? Nevermind, forget what I said.

Me on my High Horse

Well another day, another dollar. I’m still enjoying the new job despite all tasks that I have to do. Perhaps it’s because of all the tasks I have to do, all the different tasks. From identifying problems with printers taking part in conference calls about what is to be done. Bottom line, I love every minute of it.

I now have the opportunity to dress nicer, instead of wearing something that will only get dirty. I CAN NOW WEAR WHITE WITHOUT FEAR OF GETTING COVERED IN SOME SORT OF CRAP.

While there isn’t too much to say about this subject, I do enjoy getting to use my mind. I want to be a knowledge worker and now I have the opportunity to do so. I’m just thrilled that opportunity has finally come my way.

One of the nice things is the support that I’m getting from the IT guys at head office. They know that I’m new and that I’m starting to learn the ins and outs. They all seem like a very supportive bunch, though I’ve also heard through the grapevine that they’re pleased to have me there, someone with IT knowledge.

As you can guess, I’m still overwhelmed by the situation right now. Part of me still can’t believe that I’m officially in IT now. I’m the computer guy. Me, K. Restoule. WHOO HOO. I DID IT BABY. I’m going to have experience under my belt.

Well in other news, I received a call from some telemarketer about switching my Internet service. It’s still going to be Broadband but from what I can tell, it’s going to be the same cost as my current provider ( but it will cost only $9.95) for the first 3 months, AND after I’m officially sure that it works. I’m switching my phone service to VOIP. VONAGE, here I come. So I’ll be able to call everyone in North America for one low low price. Maybe I’ll call you!

Oh well, I promise that next time, I’ll me more interesting but for now I’ll get off my high horse.

I know I was going to say something but....

When I started my new job, I ordered a date planer through the company to make notes and jot down new ideas and concerns whenever they come up so I don’t forget about them. Now I think I need to do the same thing for my blog. I know I had a good idea for tonight’s blog post, but for the life of me, I cannot remember what the heck it was.

Perhaps having to do 2 hours of tech support with my mom over the phone had something to do with it. Maybe it was my excitement over my DVD’s FINALLY arriving in the mail from Zip. Ever since they opened a second distribution center IN CALGARY, they’ve been dropping the ball on a regular basis. I was getting my DVD’s quicker, when sent from Ottawa than from the centre in Calgary. Personally I think that’s sad. Did I mention that I live in Calgary (In the same frigging city as the centre?) So now I finally get to start watching the first season of Smallville.

Maybe, I was going to go off about how I bought the first season of DVD of Battlestar Galactica and discovered the box set included the original mini series (something that I already bought months ago GRRR).

Perhaps I was going to talk about The E-Ring, a new show that I really enjoy. Seeing the inner workings of the Pentagon and you still get to see good triumph over evil. Too bed real life couldn’t be like the E-Ring or else Bin Ladden would have been put behind bars years ago.

I’m not sure what the heck I was suppose to write about but when I figure out what the heck it was, I’ll let you all know.

Never a cop around....

The good news is that I made the transition to the day shift with little problems. The bad news is that now I’m going to work and going home with everyone else. RUSH HOUR SUCKS!!!

The trip to work wasn’t that big a deal. I was ‘up and at em’ by 6:30am, all washed up and ready to go by 7:10am. Catch the bus fine. No biggie.

The issue is coming home. Get to the bus stop and I’m waiting. Some more people show up and are waiting.  The bus comes every fifteen minutes during this time of day so I think ‘no biggie’. Then these guys show up and just by one look at them, I knew that there was trouble. They stand right by me, and one of the pulls out a JOINT and they start smoking away, passing it along to one another.

Now I’m not the type of person who feels that he has the right to force his views on someone else, BUT on the other hand, I have the right to stand at a bus stop, minding my own business and not have to put up with a bunch of laughing idiots passing a joint around while I get to smell that ‘distinct’ order.

In my mind’s eye, I kept picturing a couple of police cruisers showing up, the police coming out and slamming those dumb asses head against the hood of the cruiser over and over again. Bottom line I wished a film crew from COPS would have shown up, then we knew that something interesting would have happened to these guys. All this while I would be singing “Bad boy, bad boys. What you gonna do, when they come for you”. GO SMOKE YOU POT AT HOME DUMB ASSES.

Whoops, She did it again

I spent most of Turkey Day (Thanksgiving) watching episodes of Angel and The Sopranos and the evening playing City of Heroes online, so basically you would thing….ok this guy would have nothing to write about and you would be right (except for someone me finding another player who named his superhero “Nacho Cheese”). So I’m sitting at my desk and wondering what to write about it, and now I’m convinced that even God wants my blog to succeed. I check my RSS links (don’t ask, I’m not taking Geek tonight) and I find a story on CNN about Britney Spears, EBay and a jewel incrusted bra. Sometimes, it’s just too damn easy.

Alright so now we have Little Miss White Trailer Trash selling her jewel encrusted undergarments on EBay? Is she trying to be the next Madonna or something? Can we expect to see a sex book by Britney? Was that kiss on MTV between Madonna and Britney really passing the Skank Crown from one generation to another?

Ok let’s look at some facts. Since the MTV thing, Madonna has really calmed down. She’s not causing trouble in the press and she’s even writing children’s books. This is a long cry from the Madonna who did the sex book and was saying “Fuck” over and over again on Letterman. She’s trying to be a respectable mom.

Now let’s look at Britney. She’s turned into this skanky whore who did a really slimy reality show. She’s making Christina look good now. (Then again, compared to Paris, they’re both pretty conservative). Between the albino snake thing, and making school uniforms look hot, she’s getting pretty bad. I feel bad for school administrators about that. A uniform that was suppose to make young girls look less like sex objects, now has the opposite effect.

Now let’s look at this bra now. This thing looks pretty expensive and I’m wondering who has taken credit for the creation of this thing? It sort of reminds me of the time Madonna gave Letterman her panties and she wanted him to sniff them on air. While the idea of auctioning this stuff in order to help hurricane victims seems like a noble thing, but you have to wonder, was the bra just a ploy for publicity? She has lots of cash. Couldn’t she also written a cheque and kept the bra?  I guess the chairs aren’t selling well.

While doing about 5 minutes of research I did find some other Britney items which bear honorable mention. First thing is the BRA TOAST. Yes folks the toast is back. I’m still trying to decide if I should quit my job and start selling toast on EBay The other items (and I think this is the future of EBay) is the Britney Spears Noodle Bra. Yes folks, all that time wasted as a child doing macaroni art has now paid off. You too can make a bra with pasta.

Well if you excuse me, City of Heroes awaits.

I have BLOOD on my hands !!!

Revenge killer
You kill for revenge.
That is because you have lost something or
someone you held very dear. Now you can't seem
to get over the loss that marked your soul, and
the only solution is to go after the one person
who brought all this pain to you. Chances are
you are angry inside and you bottle everything
up and don't talk to anyone about it. People
may want to help, but you think that they can
never understand your pain and only get
frustrated because of this. But it is important
to see all that you have left and be thankful
of that even if you have lost something great.
It may not be true that Times heals all wounds,
but with time and talking about your feelings,
maybe the hurt will ease.

Yadaa Yadda (sorry)

First thing that I learned today was that no one gives a rat’s ass about zombies. (Note to self: No more zombie posts). Oh well. I could talk about the first night of the return of HOCKEY but my team, the Calgary Flames, had their asses handed to them by Minnesota. So I won’t talk about that.

So let’s see. I guess this is going to be a Yadda Yadda post. MMM I remember making a smart-alecky comment to Hugh about the use of Yadda Yadda and I was put in my place. Oh well I will now Yadda Yadda away.

First thing, I found this cool panoramic picture of Los Angeles on Digg. I’m impressed; it looks a lot like Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto: San Andrea. Who knew that they based those cities on real places?

I also found some funny geek quotes on Digg but they seem so lame. The first one is something normal people will not understand (I’ll give you a hint, it’s Binary). Personally I liked “What?!? I'm NOT A Dork...Just Special!” and “1f u c4n r34d th1s u r34lly n33d t0 g37 l41d” I’m such a DORK.

On the serious side, there’s going to be a summit for people (and their friends) of people who have been sued by the RIAA. I think that it’s real sad that this is going on. That the RIAA is allowed to ruin people lives. Why don’t they just quit it and let the tech people drag their sorry asses to the “money tree” just like every other time. Like with the invention of the VCR, Cable TV, even Radio. It’s just pathetic.

What I really like though is how people are standing up against these weasels and how they’ve had enough. One person who I’m really impressed with is Tanya Andersen. She’s a disabled mother in Oregon who’s COUNTERSUING those bastards, under something called the RICO act. This is a powerful law that was created to fight the mob and since what the RIAA is going is basically extortion. She wants a trial by jury and who’s going to side against the scumbags of the RIAA over a real person.

Oh I hear the RIAA and the MPAA have a new business model. Check it out here. (heh heh).

ZOMBIES !!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been thinking about zombies all day. I keep singing “Zombie Jesus” to Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode. Actually it was something I heard on Dawn and Drew, but nonetheless, I keep thinking about zombies.

Late last week, I started bugging people, by asking if Jesus came back from the dead, did that mean that he was a zombie. Again I’m ripping off Dawn and Drew, but it was something that I started teasing people about. Needless to say, that Jesus was not a zombie and not only because Jesus can do math (again, ripping off Dawn and Drew), but I don’t remember any part of the new testament where Jesus was walking around Israel, moaning and saying “brains, must eat brains”.

Well, since I’m a self confessed videogame junkie, I do enjoy the Resident Evil games, but, while I haven’t played 4 yet, I do like the others, which gives me a change to kill ZOMBIES. I have 1 to three and the 2 online games, and let me tell you, that when the lights are out and a zombie dog jumps through a window, you nearly crap yourself and drop your controller and then die. It’s a real piss off.

Now not everyone owns a videogame console but most people do own PC’s (if you don’t then how the hell are you reading this?). I found this simple game which allows you to kill zombies. OK it’s really crappy, but please have fun with Zombie 4 ok?

Alright perhaps, you’re into simulation type games, I can help you here as well. I present the Zombie Infection Simulation. Here you can watch as the people in your town fight the evil zombies as they attack and bite people and infect each other. You can even decide if your people can have guns or not.

Perhaps it’s just me, but this post does seem a bit weak. Then again, it might be from that strange infection I got from that person biting me …asdsfklkjhadsfhsdeww brains……..BRAIN….MMMMMM BRAINS…………………..

Geeks should not be allowed to name stuff

I was reading some news site and they were talking about a 10th planet and moon discovered by astronomers. Now I’ve read about the existence of this planet before but now it appears that is has a moon and they’ve officially named the planet and that moon. They named it Xena and Gabrielle. Ok they named the planet Xena awhile ago and it was possible to not make the connection between the name and the TV but to name the moon Gabrielle, that’s just too much. This is getting pathetic people.

Personally I think I could have come up with some better names for this planet and moon so I made a list of names.

Starsky and Hutch: We could appease all the fans of bad 70’s cop shows.

Letterman and Shaffer: For all the late night TV fans.

Oprah and Dr. Phil: Oprah’s ego has gotten big enough.

Stern and Quivers: For fans of morning talk radio.

Bob and Doug: For us Canadians.

Kirk and Spock: Not all the geeks are Xena fans.

Scully and Mulder: Does the planet and moon exist or is it a consparicy.

Connery and Moore: For Bond fans.

Gates and Jobs: For the IT people.

Pitts and Jolie: Aren’t they the couple to watch right now.

Ok these names suck, but then again Xena and Gabrielle are not much better. I know that it’s tradition for the people who discover these things, get to name them but come on? Get your head out of you ass buddy and come up with a real name.
