Don't Panic

Yes, the title should be familiar to those reader of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, don't worry, you'll still be able to understand. Picture this scenario: The world is coming to an end either way it goes: global warming, some meteor striking earth, loss of resources, aliens launching an attack...either way, there's no way to avoid it. So what do you do? Well you can do either of the two things: 1. Panic and run around in circles until you're just waiting to die or 2. Lay back and make the most of it. If you choose 2, then you're about to have the most fun of you're life. Go ahead and tell that jerkoff how much you hate him/her or swear at your teacher or principal as freely as you want. Who cares if you get in trouble? You're going to DIE!!! So have fun. You may want to say everything you've ever wanted to say to anyone seeing as you won't probably see them ever again. Or you might, depending on if there is an actual afterlife. But I'm not going to try and find out any time soon. And I wouldn't advise you to do it any more than I would. After awhile, the end doesn't see so bad anymore. I mean, you won't have to go on living a terrible life, if you do. If you had a great life, well so what? You had a great life. So what's the big deal? Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm right, either way, we'll find out eventually.
Lesson of the Day:

#14. Don't Panic. Make the most of your time and leave your body knowing you did the best you could.

P.S. I turn 15 tommrow so yes I'm a cheap-ass blogger for coming back on this day. Ah well, I'll try to update more than just on special occasions.

Buying consoles...

The next generation has come, according to the gaming world. Yes, all around us there are newer technology and new ways to enjoy the way we play video games. So if you have a special item on your wishlist, get ready to get the greens out of your wallet because there is are many ways to get your hand on one. Prices start to go higher as the holiday season approaches more and more yet we have only a limited budget when it comes to buying those things that we want the most. Remember: Even if you don't get your hands on a console right away, it's not the end of the world, folks. There are plenty of more opportunities to get one. First, I'd like to say that eBay is a last resort. Many times there are buyers who have paid a good amount of money for a console but the sellers wouldn't send them what they've paid for. Belive me, I would know. (Some) Game stores are valuable to fill you on the information when they would be getting a new shipment of them hence you can be prepared. Some websites track where consoles are sold and the quantity that the seller has; that is also very useful. Before you really get the opportunity to get a console, think to yourself: Do I really want this? Is this something I won't be wondering what if I had I bought another console? Be very sure or you may lose a lot of money to this decision.

The very reason for this post is that today I can annouce that I, myself, have got my hands on a Wii. I don't want to argue with any console fanboys about which console is better. I'm just making a statement for the very reason and I can proudly say that I have no regrets. Now for the Lesson of the Day:

13. Be cautious when buying a console. Take careful steps when thinking how safe is the sale or if you really desire it.

Superbad Review

So I went to a theater to see the film on Saturday (I think). Anyways, seeing as this was made by the guys who did The 40 year old Virgin and Knocked Up, I kinda expected it to be a great film. And it was. This movie was badass. It really went the whole mile when they showed some scenes that were kinda explicit even for a R-rated movie. They just put it out and show the audience thier kind of humor. This had balls and quite literally too if you go to see it. I was laughing throughout the movie and felt as if I was part of the characters. When I saw it had some teens in it and their problems, I had chills that this might be one of those movies with cheezy endings where the characters have that emo/popular/nerd esque kind of feel to it. But this had nothing to do with that. These were real unique characters who have their own different perspective on different issues. I'd say that this is one of the top movies of the year I have seen yet. I really hope to see more films from the creators. Their films haven't ceased to amuze me yet. If you get the chance, see this movie!

Borrowing Money

You know those kind of people that always ask you to lend them some money to borrow? Pause, and think what is really happening. If this is a friend or someone you know, its ok for awhile. As long as you know where to reach them, you can nag on them to get your money back. If it is a random person you don't know, by 'borrow' they mean: "Can I have some money...for free?" Obviously, you're not going to give it to them. Saying no or telling them to F-off does seem like the best way to get rid of them. But I assure you, it is not always this way. Soon, they'll come to bother you and follow you around, nagging you to give them some money or they'll never leave you at peace. You can run, but you'll never know when you might just bump into them once again and then you'll find yourself in a pickle. I'll get to the solution to this later, but now for what to do when you borrow money. Make sure you keep track of who you borrowed money from or you might lose some respect. Be ready to have the same amount of money that you borrowed to give back when the person asks you to. Never accept checks. You'll never know if it'll bounce. Now for the Lesson of the Day:

12. If some random person asks you to borrow some money, just say "I don't have any." and don't have it out or you'll make youself look foolish. Also if you or someone borrows money and doesn't have it when they/you don't have it when you/they ask for it back, try to come with some agreement and find another way to pay back to match the value of the money owed. Ex. A person may owe $4 and may pay back with snack, game, etc.

The Simpsons Movie Review

So I watched the movie the other day, and I wasn't sure what to expect. For the first 30 minutes of the film, I wasn't sure if there was a plot or not, but just went along with it. As the movie went on, I could see where this was going. Not much of a comedy film but a new story to hear about. The jokes were just about the same as the new episodes they show recently so I got a chuckle or two. It just seemed like an hour and a half long episode of the Simpsons. I won't go into detail here for those of you haven't seen the movie. If you're a fan, you might like this film. I just can't guarantee that you'll have as much fun with it as you had in the earlier seasons of the show. I'll give it some 'props' for going the extra limit on some parts of the film that I thought they wouldn't dare go near, for those people waiting for those unexpectations. Yeah, I know that sounds ironic, but that sounds just about true. It's a good film to see and enjoy. I wouldn't call it the greatest film ever made, but that is just my opinion. I was amazed just how long it took to make this film (5 years I think). Very much CGI (Computer Generated Image) and tons of voiceacting, even for those small parts in the film. Cred to Matt for going the limit there and not just slacking off like some hollywood directors would do.
