life roundup

Oh my god so much has happened. SO much. Ok, I lied, not a lot has happened, but a lot of time has passed. I had a brief affair with tumblr since the last time I updated on WordPress here, which amounted to maybe 10 extra posts since last October. I’m still working at Best Buy and that is eating a lot of my free time. I’ve listened to so much more music, played a fair amount of more games, and thanks to Netflix, watched a TON of TV shows and movies. Haven’t really read any books though. You know me 🙂

So, just as a brief list of some of the things that I have really enjoyed, and I may be forgetting some stuff, but I’ll break it down by category:

Movies
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Heat, Dune, Scanners, The Machinist, Moon, uh… many many more. Those are just the recent ones that I remember liking. Seriously though, Netflix is evil. I’ve seen waaaay to many movies thanks to it.

TV Shows
Well, Futurama came back and I’m loving it. The only new show that I’ve really followed was Community. I watched FlashForward too, but that got cancelled at the end of the first season. Mad Men is on season 4 now, loving it still as well.

Music
Black Sabbath, Ben Folds, Jefferson Airplane, B-52s, Tears for Fears, The Strokes, and Modest Mouse. These are all bands that that I have enjoyed before, but actually went out and bought CDs for over the past year, or at least the ones I remember. The band that really takes the cake, though, is CAKE. I got one of their CDs for Christmas, a CD that I wanted because of simply one song that I know from them (Going the Distance) that I kind of liked and when my friend asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I said to get me the CAKE CD that had that song on it, because I probably never would have bought it myself. But OH MAN did that turn out to be an awesome CD. I still listen to it regularly. I have yet to buy any of their other CDs but to be honest I don’t know if I want to. What if its a fluke that this CD is so great and I will get disappointed by their other work? That’s how good this CD is and that’s how much I love it. The name is Fashion Nugget for anyone who might be interested in it (not like anyone else reads this anyway).

Games
So as I mentioned on one of my imported Tumblr posts, I started playing Warcraft again. That’s been my main source of gaming. However I have played a few other games, Left 4 Dead 2 is fun. Alien Swarm is free and fun. Picked up a few DS games too, like SMT: Devil Survivor which was real good but the end boss is so hard I can’t beat it… Pokemon HeartGold was of course a game I was gonna get. A really nice remake, I was satisfied. I also bought, but haven’t had a chance to touch yet, Disgaea DS. It’s supposed to be a good game. Lastly, or at least the last thing I remember, is Red Dead Redemption for 360. I bought it the day it came out but haven’t beaten it yet. That’s how much WoW takes up of my game playing time. Torchlight is another gem I picked up a while ago, and I’m just now getting ready to finish it. The Witcher is another game that I picked up but haven’t played yet, because it’s supposed to be good. Oh, I did wind up getting New Super Mario Bros. It was fun while it lasted, but I will probably never replay it, or if I do, it will be years from now. After I finish up Torchlight, I will probably go ahead and wrap up Red Dead Redemption as I am somewhere near the halfway point. After that I will either move onto The Wticher or Disgaea, but I have two upcoming games on my radar: Civilization V and Fallout: New Vegas!

Anyway, there’s probably a TON of stuff I left out, but that’s all I remember. If I remember anything later on, well I’m just too apathetic to comment on it, unless it happens to be while I’m making another post. You non-existent readers are lucky enough as it is that I felt motivated enough to import some posts from another blog, and to go into so much detail about all the new media and what not I’ve been up to. I also made a new category called computer, as I felt there were some things that dealt with the computer and the internet that didn’t really fall into any of the other categories. I think theres only like 3 posts for it right now though.

Lastly, as I mentioned a year or so ago before I went on another quitting spree, I mentioned I want to do less of these media roundup posts, and make things more worthwhile. Well, we’ll see how that goes. There are two posts you will probably see coming in the next couple of days, before I get bored with this blog again. One will be about a new hobby of mine, and the other one will be about a new hobby of mine. The end.
