1209 Trepidation.

Once again I can’t remember what time the server thinks it is versus what time it is where I am. It’s the most irritating thing about daylight savings for me.

Anyway, since my headphones are kind of messed up I set my old sound system back up. I say sound system, but really it’s a mini screen for a PS1 that has a headphone jack and audio inputs on the back. I used it for years because no television I had actually had an out jack and I still needed to play quietly. So I’ve returned to this classic system. I wonder how hard it would be to just build some kind of small device that would serve the same function. This thing is way too big and requires an outside power source. I think I have all the tools a person would need to do such a thing, I just need to know how to find out the how. of course this might just be the first chapter in the story of how I electrocuted myself. XD

I have a signal splitter for older TVs, but I’m going to try and use that in the Teen’s room so she can play Wii without switching cords. Mostly because she’s a danger to herself and appliances when she touches things… Also because I end up having to do it otherwise, and I am lazy.

I played Assassin’s Creed 3 for a while yesterday. I finally started to understand how the game flows and whatnot. It’s very Arkham city, or rather Arkham is very Assassin’s Creed, now that I’ve actually played it. It’s a huge daunting map and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to kill couriers or not… I have been, but it seems like kind of a dick move. I feel like I missed the story of why I’m doing this dirty deed. I’d feel better about it if I knew they were jerks. Kind of like how I only pickpocket drunks and people who also appear to be stealing. It’s a neat game and much less depressing than State Of Decay, which I love, but can only play it for so long before it starts to affect my mood. It’s pretty bleak, and even more so in the Breakdown DLC. The only ending is basically how long you can go without dying, so yeah…

I’d still love to see more of it and more DLC though. It’s also be great if the in game dialog was less repetitive…


Finally caught up to another web comic. Any other suggestions?

Read the fiction. Link at top. Then go read Dumbing of Age.

Which, for some reason, I haven’t been able to get into. This is more Crave’s recommendation than mine.

What’s the name of that one restaurant with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?

I… I don’t use profanity. However, the compulsion to ask you to be oddly specific is very strong.

I’m talking “Disney character making noises through the bathroom door” strong.

You lost me with mozzarella sticks, though. I mean, that’s all the way from Appleby’s to Zookini’s.

It’s too late! What’s been done is done! Live with your consequences Mike! Live with it…

At least he’s just having second thoughts, he’s not cancelling the whole thing. I’m proud of him taking this chance. :)

It’s only a matter of time before Ed and Reggie discover their latent, but budding bromance. Wes is going to end up being the fall-back guy, though.

Thanks for posting the one piece figs a while back. Completely different from my set. If I had a way to show you my collection I would.

The couriers in the AC games are supposedly running info and money for the templars. However killing them usually ups your reknown quite a bit I think even if you aren’t spotted it pisses people off. Technically what you’re supposed to do is just switch to fists and tackle the shit out of them like you’re fricking edge/goldberg/katlyn/roman reigns… Whichever pro wrestling spear you personally prefer. Every fricking body is using one these days it seems like. Anyway that’s a rant I can post somewhere else at a later time. if you’re not familiar with how to tackle its bare fists, free run and then circle/B depending on your system of choice. Its kind of funny. I actually just picked this game up last night after not playing it for a long long while because of a move. I’ve been running around trying to remember how the hell to do all the tricks and doo dads of the game. Its gonna be a couple rounds before I actually go back to the story (which surprisingly I remember). One last point. remember you’re an assassin, nothing is true and everything is permitted. its not a multi path game like infamous (which is a good time if you haven’t played it) you can kill as many jerkwads as you want and it won’t affect anything. hope that helps

I’m calling it. By the end of the (work) week, these two will either be that pair of friends who can only talk to each other through childish jibes (here’s to ya, Gus!), or one of them will be six feet under.

Brooksie! You have now taken on the mantle of the bawss! Wear it with pride, and bring peace to the galaxy!

I find it amusing that these two are dressed so similarly — the navy work shirt over a bright red tee-shirt. Of course, they both have black hair, too. Jo is rockin’ that Electric Lime tee — like a baws!

It’s been my experience that the guys with the money don’t give the assassins rationale, just money and directives. Oh, you mean in a game…

Find the wires to the speaker. Then tie them in parallel to a 1/8″ jack for your headphones. They should play audio before the speaker-don’t turn it up very high. Or use a jack that breaks the circuit when you insert the plug. Youtube is your friend.
