First day of University


First day of Uni was today, I have to say, It could not have gone off any better, after the first lecture I made insta-friends, seriously, people wait entire lifetimes before finding a bunch of people who like the same things as much as you do to the same point (if not a little more) than you do, I have definitely found the right course to do, my tafe friends are great, but these people are honestly the most amazing people I have met in a very long time... although knowing me, I'm going to do something and fuck it up really badly, I always do... It'll most likely turn out to be something as small as someone finding this and being all like "WOAH, WHAT THE HELL?! I know I have a little bit of a messed sense of humour, but this guy is ridiculous... "

Second worst case scenario that is haha

But yeah, we were watching SHED.MOV on youtube, and that's when I knew for sure that I had met the holy grail of people I could be myself around with (for a second time)

Seriously, watch it, the whole series is fucking hilarious.

Actual learning wise, basically the whole course is a giant wank, assuming I can get my head around writing essays... Which for some reason I've never been able to do correctly... I just have to attempt at least a credit average and I'll be able to go overseas for exchange, which'll be hella fun assuming I'm able to go where I'd like to go...

I could not have hoped for a better first day!


The Last Story

Okay, first off, I don't care how popular this is with Europeans, the voice acting is absolutely horrible, I don't think I've seen/heard worse in a game series, what the hell were they thinking putting 20 year old cockney British accents on people who were obviously not British nor the age they sounded, they should have just kept the Japanese voices with the subtitles... which leads me onto part two... By changing what the characters said in the EU games meant that you had to basically rewrite the story, this is something that makes game story lines fail really badly, because the story isn't completely told correctly and things are left out, I really hate it when something is supposed to be really emotional and the European voice actor/director decides that's It's perfectly fine to lengthen what the character is saying by putting words in that aren't supposed to be there in the first place, it completely ruins the whole feeling and is just bad, stop it... Please!

The same goes with Animé, unless you're going to cast the character voices properly, I suggest you don't do it at all.

Apart from the voice acting, the games visual element is pretty awesome, It's what I would like to see in more Nintendo games, instead of all the colourful nonsense, you're going the right way if you don't want to see your company last very long in the first party sense...


Just a few words to show that I'm still alive

There's a reason why I'm so forgetful all the time.

It's because my sleeping patterns are ballistic, seriously, I don't know how people stay sane living like this, it doesn't make any sense to me... But, if I try to sleep at a good time... say something like going to bed at 8pm, I'll wake up at 1am the next day and regret it because I won't be able to go back to sleep again, it's not because I've had enough sleep either, it's just that my body won't let me... Which annoys me a lot seeing as for the rest of the day everything becomes a chore and.. just... urgh... It's not that I'm lazy, because I'm really not, it's just I have absolutely no energy to do anything ...

Also, all this shit about piracy taking money from artists and such is a bunch of bullshit, If someone likes your stuff, they're going to support you, if they don't, then they're going to delete the item anyway, technically no-one is loosing any money, everyone is just doing what they used to do, which is share something around and show people something they think is cool, the people who agree with the person that showed them will (eventually) buy the product, thus helping the person who created the product and everyone included in the price tagged... also, if you REALLY want to make money from a consumer, BANNING and CENSORING something isn't going to make them want to BUY the fucking product, it'll make them want to steal it even more, just out of spite... What happened to the days when people did things like make music and perform for the sake of making music and performing? Artists and producers should get money for actually making GOOD MUSIC or GOOD TV/MOVIES, shit music like "born this way" by "lady gaga" or god awful TV shows like "modern family" should NOT be funded based on the amount of dvd sales or advertising money they get, they should be funded by "if you (the consumer) agree they should be funded" by watching/listening to it first, and if you really liked it THEN you pay for it, otherwise you don't and that's the end of that.

I'm sick of hearing about the latest tantrum a celebrity has had because some jewel studded aeroplane has just come out and they don't have enough money to buy it, they should work in a REAL job and then understand that life isn't as fucking easy as they might like to think it is, just because you're worth a bundle of money doesn't mean you have to act like a fucking child when things don't go your way, and as for the people who actually go around and make celebrities their life by reading about them in the newspaper and then changing their lifestyle to match the ritch person's?

Stop it, you stupid fucking idiot, their life is so small it's not funny, they make MOVIES, they don't make important things like spoons, forks, trucks, houses, electricity or any of that shit, your husband/wife who works at the fucking BOX FACTORY down the road is more important than some 2-bit retard who can change their voice or personality to suit some roll for others to watch...

Sure, movies and music are a nice thing, I'm not saying that they aren't, but that's all they are, the people who make them can be impressive, but that doesn't mean they're important or should be important... unless they're a rocket scientist, or a new age genius as well... In which case, I tip my hat to you good sir/ma'am you are one of the very few people who actually matter and can do something to actually help humanity instead of make their life numb and happy for about 1.5 hours



I should be moving soon

My plan for this year is to move out of my current home and live on campus, beating the 2 hour wait between my place and Penrith and removing the constant/moderate annoyance of my brother/family, Sure, I love them and whatever, but I can't study at home, it's next to impossible with everything that goes on here...

Once I move into Penrith campus I'm going to try and set up my own TV, Radio, Data stream on my own LAN and see how that pans out, I doubt it'll take off... but one can hope/dream, plus it'd be cool making somewhat of a name of myself (apart from "that guy who was on the footy show those three times" or "that guy who used to make them videeoohs on yoohtoobe" etc.)


Life Update: University

I am now officially a uni student, now all I need to do is get this "advanced standing" crap processed... although it would appear that to do so would mean you have the IQ of the four most intelligent people in the world... plus their computers because to do anything of the sort seems almost impossible... which is quite annoying...
