I don't know exactly when it happened but somewhere in the last couple years I (who has had a self imposed ban on anything EA ever since 2004) have become at least mildly interested in EA's output in terms of new IP. Dead Space, Rock Band, Orange Box, (though granted that's not really their property), Mirror's Edge, Warhammer Online, and Spore, for good or ill have been doing some pretty interesting things that's causing me to sit up and take notice. Now whether any of this notice will translate into me actually spending money on an EA product, well so far it hasn't happened yet. But I'm a lot closer to doing so now than I was a couple years ago when they were still known as The Evil Empire. That at least counts for something.

They need to release demos of some of their stuff for me to try before I hop the fence. It's my understanding that Mirror's Edge is releasing a demo on Novemver 7th on Xbox Live. I'm gonna download it and go from there. But I don't expect to be jumping any brooms with them any time soon.

I've discovered that if I don't listen to music for at least an hour a day, I don't have a good day at all. Today was one of those days where almost every customer was getting on my nerves for one reason or another. God. I think I'm gonna turn my resume in to HR and go for a management position. anything is better than dealing with stupid customers all day long. I've been at this place long enough. Hell I've been at call centers since freakin 1998. I'm tired of being on the phones. It's physically draining.

I'm so bored right now. Imunna go take a shower. Ok bye.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about self than concerned about others, more religious than atheist, more loner than dependent, more lazy than workaholic, more rebel than traditional, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are adventurious (100%), intellectual (93%), romantic (95%), musical (98%).

College Student100%
Old Geezer83%
Young Professional82%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Libertarian, whom you agree with around 58% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 31% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 64%, hotter than 90% of other test takers.

A Christmas Story  
07:36pm 09/12/2006
RIP SRG. Isle of You
'Twas the night before Christmas--Old Santa was pissed.
He cussed out the elves and threw down his list.
Miserable little brats, ungrateful little jerks.
I have a good mind to scrap the whole works!
I've busted my ass for damn near a year,
Instead of "Thanks Santa"--what do I hear?
The old lady bitches cause I work late at night.
The elves want more money--The reindeer all fight.
Rudolph got drunk and goosed all the maids.
Donner is pregnant and Vixen has AIDS.
And just when I thought that things would get better
Those assholes from the IRS sent me a letter,
They say I owe taxes--if that ain't damn funny
Who the hell ever sent Santa Claus any money?
And the kids these days--they all are the pits
They want the impossible--Those mean little shits
I spent a whole year making wagons and sleds
Assembling dolls...Their arms, legs and heads
I made a ton of yo yo's--No request for them,
They want computers and robots...they think - I'm IBM!
Flying through the air...dodging the trees
Falling down chimneys and skinning my knees
I'm quitting this job there's just no enjoyment
I'll sit on my fat ass and draw unemployment.
There's no Christmas this year now you know the reason,
I found me a blonde. I'm going SOUTH for the season.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good spanking!

I went to a big fancy pants dinner thing for my job at a mansion last night. When I came home, my roomate snapped some pics of me in the suit and tie. So what's the deal, should I post em?

I've been on myspace a lot lately. It's how I keep an eye on my family members. Been getting back into actually playing games recently. I bought Justice League Heroes (for the PS2) on the day it came out. Beat it once with my roomate David on Medium, and beat it once on my own on hard. Then I'll probably keep it around. I thought about tradiding it in for Marvel Ultimate Alliance but I love it too much. I preordered M:UA for the 360, but I think I'll get it for PS2 or Xbox cuz it's the same game for $20 less. I also preordered the new Splinter Cell for 360 (I'm told the Xbox version is a completely different game), and Phantasy Star Universe for the 360. Well Phantasy Star I just HAVE to get. Phantasy Star Online was my World Of Warcraft back when it came out on the DC in 2000. To this day I haven't played a game longer than I have that one (Battletoads for the NES doesn't count cuz I never beat it). Ok so I'm getting Phantasy Star (the only 360 game I don't mind paying more than $40 for) this week and probably Gears of War next week.

I'm also interested in a ton of PS2 games lately. Been playing the Warriors on my other roomate's PS2. Pretty fun game. Normally I don't like Rockstar's games but I like the sense of humour they inject in all their games (no I don't like any of the GTAs). I firmly believe Rockstar is gonna be one of those developers that usher in a new error of storytelling in games. (There has to be things to do in non sports games besides hitting and shooting people.) So I'm keeping a close eye on their products. Bully came out, I want to play that.

Oh. I have Dead Rising too. Haven't played it much cuz I, I mean the controls, suck. Everything is binded to like two buttons and it's confusing so I keep getting surrounded by zombies and taken down (after that you wake up fresh in the security room like it was all a dream or something). But it looks damned nice in 720p. Tony's (my other roomate's) TV is a 27 inch Polaroid LCD that I'm trying not to get too attached to cuz he's leaving in January. The zombies are pretty crisp and clean (in 720p) but you get over that real quick when you're bashing them over the head with a chair. I'm only about an hour into it so I'll post more when I play more, basically.
