It’s been a while. Look, don’t get mad. It’s gravy, baby. And that is probably the worst thing that I’ve ever typed. It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy and I’m sure the same goes for you.
FIRST!

Did I tell you I love the blues? Oh, I didn’t. Silly me. I love the blues.

I finally, finally caught up on Dexter. I started watching season 4 months ago, but I just now remembered to finish it. I remember seeing posts on Facebook about how bad the ending is. I won’t post any spoilers, but the writers on Dexter are absolutely brilliant. So, I guess…this is a recommendation, go watch Dexter. Start at the beginning.

So, the God of War III demo dropped last night on PSN. It’s beautiful and awesome. But I’m more excited about the Just Cause 2 demo coming next week

I TOLD YOU

Sorry for the caps,

Connor

I hate Facebook. Up and down, I see no point for it. So, here’s the deal. More than likely, I’ll be deleting my Facebook. That means if you want to talk to me, you actually have to talk to me. If I delete it, I’ll put up my number and my email. Hopefully, this will help reintroduce some person-to-person interaction that has been sucked away by Facebook.

Also, I’m going to start doing a little thing at the end of each post and I hope the rest of the C//R writers follow along with me. Tycho (Jerry, in reality, I believe) puts song lyrics after the end of each post. I always have fun reading them and trying to figure out what it’s from. So, I’m going to start doing the same.

Floating in my mind, no sail

So, KN posted this about a year ago and I just started listening to it again: Ghostly Swim

It’s an Adult Swim mixtape and it’s actually pretty good. I doubt most of you will recognize any of the artists on it, but that really shouldn’t stop you from listening to it. I’d say, it’s electronic, not techno. You won’t find any club jams, which is a good thing, but you will find a lot of mellow, electronic beats. Aside from Kid Cudi, Ghostly Swim has been on repeat for me.

FIRST!
So I decided to share a little something about myself. As most of you probably don’t know, I was obsessed with skateboarding when I was a kid. This went on for about four or five years. I couldn’t skate worth a damn, but I ate it up. If I saw skate magazines, I’d want them. If I saw a pair of Fallen shoes, I’d want them. The long and short of it is, I’ve always been a big fan of skateboarding but I’ve never been a skateboarder. One of my favorite street skateboarders is Chris Haslam. Check it out:

My A40 headset comes in on Tuesday. That is all

Looks Like I’ll need to update my computer CIV V. Not CIV IV, but CIV V. I sank so many hours into Civilization IV that I’m afraid that the sequel might drag me down underneath the waves, far away from society. If you don’t know about the Civilization series, it was (until recently) a pc-exclusive RTS game. Basically it’s all about managing and upgrading a, you guessed it, Civilization.
FOURTH?
Offline? NO Assassin’s Creed for you! Ubisoft’s DRM is retarded. If you buy ACII for the PC, you have to be online to play the game. If your network or Ubisoft’s servers go down, it boots you from the game. Lame.
FIFTH? You’ve got to be kidding me
Like a dumb-dumb, I forgot to tell you guys about the article on Roger Ebert posted on Esquire on tuesday. It’s awesome and definitely worth the read. So, read it: HERE
SIXTH! I’m leaving, seriously? Six. Come on
I know I said I’d post pictures of my painting on LPEP, but I just haven’t had the time to take them and upload them. SO, expect them today. i’ll post a link-a-doodle in a new post so you can check it out.

Spike Jonze gets a prank pulled on him by his WTWTA crew. No embed, but click the link to see. Spike Jonze

I still haven’t seen the movie due to location constraints. When I was at State, going to the movies either required a ride or a taxi. The latter being beyond expensive. Back home, I don’t believe our theater actually put up the movie. At any rate, I’m looking forward to seeing it.
SECOND!
Monsters in Real Places Basically, the link says it all. It’s a blog of monsters in real-life photos. It’s pretty cool.

Guess what I bought: I’m not an audiophile by any means, but after listening to music through my Sony MDR-7506s, I realized that I really couldn’t go back to how I previously absorbed media. Enter Astro’s A40s. Great sound and a great mic, is pretty much a win-win. Although the price is pretty steep, it’s an investment.

Also, Chocolate Gaming? I’ve been thinking about an idea and the situation is nowhere close to infancy, but I’ve always been interested in LAN parties and video game competitions. IF I ever stumble upon such an event or get into some sort of competition, I think I’ll try and get Chocolate//Robot into the gaming scene, somehow. I know that all of the members of C//R grew up gaming and it has definitely been of one of our favorite hobbies, so I see it as an evolution of a pastime.
