A Favor, if you will?

Today, I ask a favor.

I could not, for the life of me, tell you why this has become so important to me, but...

I noticed that there are a few of you who seem to actually follow my postings. We seem to share similar thoughts and you at the very least enjoy reading what I write every so often if nothing else.

If you would be so kind as to share this page with someone you think may like it. I have done my fair share of shameless promotion to the masses and it seems to only garner a mere fraction of a fraction of a small percentage of people. We are so used to ignoring the flood of shit on the web now a days that even if something happens to be remotely interesting we are 5 billion times more likely to ignore it (I looked that statistic up, 5 billion is accurate). I can't say that I blame anyone though. The development of all these ease of access tools, web, art, music and so on was to give people who wouldn't normally have the opportunity the chance to create something. The thought being that the next Leonardo or Einstein or Mozart was hidden away somewhere with no ability to create due to circumstance and this would allow the world to see them. Instead, we got Justin Beiber and Rebecca Black and a slurry of other shit fueled mouth breathers.

So, what I ask is that if you like my shit fueled mouth breather ramblings and you think someone else might, let them know where I am so we can spread crap throughout the world. After all, there really isn't enough of it.

P.S. i love to use the ellipsis but i am not sure I know how to use it correctly....

also if you happen to know anyone involved in the production of Tron 3 or even uprising please send them my info. I will work for free.

Every Fucking Time!!!

Every single time a new piece of footage appears, of I get a little piece of news about it I feel like my excitement response is reborn and I am feeling it for the first time.

If I could live in this universe, I would. I have nothing to lose. I long to know the feeling of running. Fighting for something. Something I believe. Something important to me.

In reality I wish I could be part of the Tron 3 production. At the very least I wish I had a way to get insider news for you guys. I love this universe. I don't care what people think of the movie, the acting or the style. I don't care how people react to comparisons of it's originality vs. the original. I don't. fucking. care.

What I do care about is watching the world unfold for me. Learning more about it and burying myself deeper in my fantasy. I need to do something about this. I would love for you guys to tag along.

It's always about Tron.

Okay, I know it may seem ridiculous to pay this much for a set of Blu-ray disc's. Especially when that set has a 3d disc that I can't even use, but I HAD to have the identity disc set. Amazon also claims that by selecting the free 2 day shipping (I am a Prime member) that I will get it on release day.

I personally considered this to be a must have. If you are thinking of buying it, please consider purchasing through my link, I will get a few bucks for it through Amazon's referral service. It is only available as a pre-order now until April 5 which is the official release date.

I don't own it yet so I can't comment on how awesome it is sure to be, but you should buy it. Actually buy 3 in case you lose 2.

If you have adblock on you have to disable it to see my link.

Oh My Precious Whore.

Well, to summarize.

I am currently working on the graphical overhaul of a rather awesome webgame.

It is called "The Farplane Wars" its pretty neat, I actually played the game a while back and I really loved it, I reached out to the developer just to tell him how much I liked it, I mentioned that if he was ever working on any new projects I would like to be involved. I didn't even know what I was offering but I wanted to do something.

The game itself is a space themed strategy game. You choose your responses to determine your outcome. There is also a mixed element of scrolling shooter, colony management and ship upgrades. Something about it really made me like it, it just grabbed my interest from the beginning and never let go, despite the sub par visual work. Now it will receive an overhaul from yours truly. Which should be the equivalent of me scribbling some geometry and adding cannons to it.

No, I kid.

Anyway, the funny part is that after I started working on it I was looking up some stuff from the author and realized that he was the dude who wrote one of the best roll your own adventure zombie game I had ever played, "After the End" if you ever played it you know what I mean.

Then it all made sense why the story for Farplane wrapped me up so well. The guy knows how to tell a story.

The ratings for the games over at Newgrounds are strange, it seems that the comment scores are great but overall it is a little disappointing. I am linking both games at newgrounds. Play them, don't play them, rate them, don't rate them. Just don't waste your day jacking off to the Sims.

back to being blind....

One of the pitfalls of dying is that it often puts me out of commission for afew days at a time and then I can't update as regularly as I like.

At some point you will see that I haven't updated in months or even years and it will be because I have died, and the world will have barely noticed.

Tron: Uprising Series Trailer

It's been out for a bit, made me wonder why I haven't posted it yet.

Don't try to relate.

The smarter I get, the more abysmal everything around me becomes. Rather, I should say, the more the already dismal world reveals itself to be.

It is hard to feel intelligent when I regularly struggle with just trying to fit in with humanity. I feel like I should know how to do it.

Fucking clueless.

Rubber Johny - Aphex Twin

I remember the first time I saw this. I made everyone watch it. Now, years later, I share it with you just in case you haven't seen it.

3 Days

was the morning.

Actually, that's how much of my life I have now wasted trying to troubleshoot and fix my eyefinity triple monitor setup. You see a few months back I was bouncing back and forth between grouped monitors and non. Loved it. Massive 5040 x 1050 gaming and then split three single monitors for applications, this was important as a browser window maximized to 3 monitors isn't as fun as it sounds, especially when you try to open more then one and move them between windows.

Yet it all came to a devastating and abrupt halt about 2 months ago when I reinstalled my OS onto an SSD boot drive. You see, I figured that ATI had done something to the drivers and it was just fucking with my chi. But after a revision or two didn't fix anything I began to get irritated.

Now, no matter what I tried all I could do was group 2 monitors and leave the third as a standalone. this did not please me at all. I wanted things exactly the way they used to be.

I fear change.

Anywho. to make matters worse, when I activated crossfireX I lost one monitor. In hindsight that should have been a dead giveaway but I suppose at the time I was blinded by pure rage.

I searched the web, sought counsel on forums, even shot off a semi passive aggressive tech support request to ATI. "I am the customer, I demand immediate satisfaction,  Requiem in terra pax and so forth..."

Those bastards still haven't contacted me.

Which is probably for the best. You see. When eyefinity groups monitors it can only do it across a single gpu. Something I knew. Also, for the uninitiated, crossfire in its simplest form is the use of a second gpu to handle alternating processing of "video stuff" two cards act as one, utilizing only one cards output but both gpu's.

So, if one were to say, hook up their third monitor to the second video card when they reassembled their pc they may find that when crossfire is enabled, it will shut down the output of that card.

sound familiar yet.

It would also prevent that monitor from being added to an eyefinity group...

Are you also divergent, friend?

Telephone call? Telephone call?
That's communication with the outside world.
Doctor's *discretion*.
Nuh-uh. Look, hey - all of these nuts could just make phone calls, they could spread insanity, oozing through telephone cables, oozing into the ears of all these poor sane people, infecting them.

Wackos everywhere, plague of madness. 

There's the television.
It's all right there - all right there.
Commercials! We're not productive anymore. We don't make things anymore. It's all automated.

What are we *for* then?
We're consumers, Jim.
Okay, okay.
Buy a lot of stuff, you're a good citizen.
But if you don't buy a lot of stuff, if you don't, what are you then, I ask you?


Mentally *ill*.

Fact, Jim, fact - if you don't buy things:
toilet paper,
new cars,
computerized yo-yos,
electrically-operated sexual devices,
stereo systems with brain-implanted headphones,
screwdrivers with miniature built-in radar devices,
voice-activated computers...
I don't really come from outer space.

Don't mock me my friend. 
It's a condition of mental divergence. 
I find myself on the planet Ogo, part of an intellectual elite, preparing to subjugate the barbarian hordes on Pluto. 
But even though this is a totally convincing reality for me in every way, nevertheless Ogo is actually a construct of my psyche. 
I am mentally divergent, in that I am escaping certain unnamed realities that plague my life here. 
When I stop going there, I will be well. 

Are you also divergent, friend?

Where is my love song?

I was supposed to make someone fall in love with me. Songs were to have been written about me, recalling the torment of love not reciprocated.

I have been broken all my life. No one was attracted to my damage and nursed me back to health.

I have been artistic all my life. No one saw my dark side and was drawn closer.

I have been intelligent all my life. No one saw the beauty of the tortured genius trying to fit in.

It is no wonder I have been driven to this.
