i finally got rocket knight adventures.. i got it as a rom
i'd like it as a game on ps3 or maybe even an actual sega genesis game but i'm content playing it on the computer.. it will just take some getting used to
playing games on a computer is a little un-legit to me.. you have to use the keyboard or constantly re-set the controls on your controller.. is there a way to make the controls stay the same? is there a controller that will just work as soon as i plug it in?
i don't know
i also got limbo on steam.. it was like $2.50
it actually seems like a good purchase for a computer because the controls seem really simple
i haven't really played it but it looks neat.. the price and the desire to try steam made me buy it
there's a new 8-bit style megaman game coming out soon called megaman x street fighter.. this will be FREE at capcom-unity.com
it looks neat.. it comes out 12-17
when it comes to video games on youtube, i recently found an excellent channel called game sack.. check that out you will probably like it.. it has a lot of history
it has games past and present.. they make me want to comment like 50 times on every video.. its great
i hate it when black people act like they are the only black people who listen to rock or alternative or something
the other day on youtube someone said
"i thought i was the only black person who liked local h!"
how can you say that when..
THERE'S A BLACK PERSON IN THE BAND!!!
the band is a twosome.. so 50% of the band is black!
why do black people do this?
"aren't i trendy and cool? i like nirvana ahyuck!"
you worthless jackass, black people invented rock!!!
metal came from blues
elvis stole songs from little richard
jimi hendrix was revolutionary and is considered one of the greatest guitar players ever (if not the best)
WHY DO BLACK PEOPLE DO THIS!?
WHY DO YOU THINK YOU'RE SO SPECIAL BECAUSE YOU LIKE AN ALTERNATIVE BAND?
WHY DO YOU THINK YOU'RE SO MUCH MORE ENLIGHTENED THAN EVERY OTHER BLACK PERSON IN THE WORLD!?
NGGA, KILL YOURSELF!!!!!!
i want to talk right now about an issue i have with some women today
ok i am not a perfect man lets put that out right now.. so i'm not being arrogant here, i'm just pointing out a place where a lot of women on the dating scene make us men lose interest today
one thing i have seen with some women is this feminist attitude
the feminist attitude brings certain things with it
mainly contention, distrust, and independence
the feminist viewpoint is really nothing more than pride
when girls bring this attitude around me i agree with them and compliment them on how insightful they are..
then i never call them back.
the contention.. the "since-you-say-up-then-i-say-down" thing gets old incredibly fast
the distrust makes me feel unwanted
the independent mindstate makes me think you are going to do whatever you want when we have a disagreement.. instead of any kind of humble submission or flexibility on your part, it will be a tooth and nail fight
what a lot of people don't get is that in order for relationships to work, there has to be a dynamic.. the men are the strong leaders and the women are the flexible helpers..
if a woman wants a flexible helper then she can find a weak man whom she can walk all over.. AND WE ALL KNOW HOW MUCH WOMEN LIKE WEAK MEN! (o:
if a man wants a headstrong and inflexible woman then.. then that ngga is weird lol
i am a polite guy.. just because i want a woman who is soft, cute, sweet, open, and GENERALLY AMIABLE doesn't mean i am a tyrant.. it doesn't mean i want to abuse her and rub her face in the dirt and walk all over her.. it means i want to occupy my gender role with relative ease and i want to allow her to occupy her gender role in the same way
i don't want to make this long-winded
all i truly want to say is that when i run into these girls who aren't interested in being GIRLS, it is a turn off..
when you go on a date with a chick and she is preoccupied with proving some sort of dominance over you- the inherent masculinity of her actions and demeanor are a ROYAL TURN-OFF
i want someone who is flexible and able to go with the flow, not someone who is always trying to argue with me about some trivial nonsense
i want someone soft, humble, and approachable.. not headstrong, prideful, and stubborn
so all in all i just want any females reading this to try and get what i am saying.. understand that i am not dissing you, i am telling you that if you drop that feminist "men-are-stupid-and-i-don't-need-them" thing then you will be a lot more likable to men
i like ACTUAL GIRLS.. i don't want to date queen latifah.. MEN WANT REAL WOMEN
PLEASE STOP TRYING TO IMPRESS MEN BY DISPLAYING CONTROLLING AND MASCULINE TRAITS.. IT DOESN'T WORK
stop with the attitudes and the "i-can-do-whatever-u-do-better-than-you" thing, because that attitude is demeaning to what a person brings to the table in a relationship
stop talking about being INDEPENDENT all the time! it is counterproductive!!!!
how would you feel if you went on a date and a guy (whether directly or indirectly) said: "i don't need a woman in my life" ?? really stop and think about how that would make you feel and how you would react to it!!!!!
be sweet and cute and kind and you will give your man a lot more to work with and smile about
don't you want a man to treat you like a lady? i'm sure you do, so ask yourself..
what's so wrong with treating your man like a man?
GIVE IT A REST ON THE "WOMEN'S LIB" CRAP!
this was extremely cathartic for me
i think it was my first time putting any of this stuff into words
if you can relate then leave a comment
just want to speak about patience a bit
lately i think about the strength of patience a lot
when i think about patience today, i think it is honorable
in the past maybe patience seemed irritating, but the more i evaluate things, the more patience seems like a legit way of achieving things
i listened back to a song i did for the "power moves" album and on it i said:
"i stay busy, don't sit around waitin/
but at the same time i see life's all about patience/
cuz even tho i go hard in my life/
i can make things happen but not overnight/
but since givin up is not for my type/
i suit up and make sure to put my all in the fight/"
that^ to me explains a lot of what it means to be patient
you obviously want things to happen but you have to maturely stand up, look yourself in the mirror and realize things will happen when they happen.. you have to acknowledge that some things may take some time.. and like the Bible says.. don't despise your humble beginnings
just look at your situation and say.. ok eventually i want to be in a diff place.. right now i'm here, but that's ok cuz i'm here, i'm alive, i'm working toward my goal and there's no shame in that
my view of patience lately is just very like.. i extoll the virtues of patience with conviction these days.. like i seriously just look around at people in the world and i see how people who try to "get rich quick" come to ruin while people who put in that ground work build foundations for themselves and their families
one thing that is funny too.. there is no shame in patience.. it SEEMS like there is shame in it but there really isn't.. some ignorant people will probably tease you but in the back of their minds they know its only a matter of time before you take flight and leave them behind
think about the girl who stays a virgin until she is married.. her friends probably treat her like she is this inexperienced naive person who just knows nothing of value but the reality is a lot of those girls wish they would've waited (for both physical and emotional reasons).. and on top of that.. the virgin girl will probably be the appealing one when prince charming comes to town
think about the guy who decides to go to school instead of sell drugs like his peers.. 4 years down the line his peers who laughed at him for not having the new jordans are all effed up and realizing "hey, this job has no benefits, no retirement plan, no 401k, and i'm out on the corner in 40 degree weather"
all the while the guy who went to school is getting hired at a legit, respectable, good-paying job with benefits and he is also leaving the hood
the difference a lot of times between success and failure is patience, and what seems like the hard way is really the easy way
-my words on patience-
one of the dumbest comments on youtube is the whole "thumbs up if you're listening in 2012" or whatever year it is
what does that even mean?
like of course whoever is listening is listening in the current year
you might as well say "thumbs up if you're a human"
like.. do these people realize how pointless and redundant all the "thumbs up if you came to this video" crap is?
OF COURSE I CAME TO THIS VIDEO THIS YEAR! WHAT OTHER YEAR CAN I VIEW IT IN!?
as if people just have time machines or something..
as if a person from 1993 would somehow be on youtube and be excluded
"thumbs up if you're watching this video right now! ahyuck!"
WHAT THE F*CK DOES THAT EVEN MEAN!!!!!!
**update about a month later**
i just saw this on youtube
i don't know who 'feverish' is.. but i thanked him lol
i want to talk about what college has taught me.. not the pretentious and idealistic things.. but the reality of what it has taught me overall (for better or for worse)
and YES these are in order of importance
1. FIND AND USE SHORTCUTS
-why actually spend time learning something when you can just fake like u know it?
-why study when you can control-f everything?
2. organize and make to-do lists
-this one is actually legit
3. delivery is greater than mastery
-getting something in on time is better than making it perfect
4. stroke a person's ego to get what you want from them
-when it comes to yourself, use self-deprecation to appear humble and harmless
-be artificially nice when appropriate
-using proper English and using a person’s proper title will help
5. expect bureaucracy
I AM NOT SAYING THESE ARE ALL LEGIT.. i'm just saying these are the things i have gathered from college
i feel like there may be more.. but this is all I have for now
there was a time in my life where i got into giving freely
i made it my mission to give whenever i could
during this time i was pretty amazed to see how i stayed afloat despite my giving
one thing that happened was, i mentioned to one of my friends that i wanted a music software.. a few days later it showed up at my door.. he mailed it to me.. the software would've cost me like $300 if i had bought it
i was like WHOA!
i honestly had NO way of getting that software on my own because i was only making enough money at the time to eat and pay car insurance lol
and then around this same time i worked at a video rental store.. this was like 05 when they were still open
these people came in and got movies and when they left, i noticed they left the drink door open so i went around to close it and there was a $100 bill on the candy rack
i picked it up and i was going to call them but the computer only remembered the last name entered in and so i had no way of giving it back.. because i had checked some returns in as soon as they left
these things still trip me out.. i definitely need to get back on my giving grind.. who knows what it may yield
saw a commercial like minutes ago and it was one of those "do what you love" types of commercials
this one just went too far tho
it went SO far that it makes me question all other commercials that are similar to it
basically.. in these commercials, they show a person doing something fun and being a success at it. and at the end they endorse the product or idea behind the product
well this one was overboard because the 'inspirational person' was deaf...
they actually showed him in the club dee-jaying and at the end of the commercial he said something like "i feel the music" ..but he didn't say it.. a narrator did
these companies man.. wow
are they aware that that commercial made absolutely no sense?
i mean seriously whoever signed off on that should be fired
what "inspirational" commercial is next? one where blind men drive cars?
i am literally amazed at how dumb that commercial was
