The Birth of a Mapper/Modder/Animator

Cool, I finally have the means to create my own games in the source engine! It took 10 hours to download, but I finally did it. It came with a couple of cool tools: the Face Poser (the choreography and animation), Model Viewer (pretty much self-explanitory), and Hammer (the level editor.) I’ve already gotten started on the tutorials. It looks like a bright future for the maps I’m going to create. It’s tons of fun! You can check out a screenshot of my first map EVER here.

Look familiar?

Text Messaging

Here's another completely useless service that only has survived so long because it's cool. Why in the wirld would you want to text someone on your cell? It defeats the whole purpose of having a phone with you! Plus you have to pay extra for a message that takes five minutes to write (using the CRAPPIEST input device: a numeral pad) using all of these little abbreviations nobody understands that would take ten seconds talking on a cell. Who would want to do that?

The Band-a-Rama

For those of you who don't know, the Band-a-Rama is a big gathering of all of the bands in the Baraboo school district area jurisdiction place. Most o fthe time, all of the binds sound good, except this year, there was a irregularity: The BMS Gold Band...

Wow did we SUCK! I mean, god! The little cute adorable sixth graders practacly outshowed us (No offense to any sixth graders that may be reading)! We played all of the wrong notes, our tempo was way off, we came in early, the only thing we didn't do is start over (which is the most supremely embarassing thing that can happen). Why, if I didn't know any better, it's say our suckage was almost palpable! In fact, it was palpable! I can't figure out for the life of me why the audience clapped at the end of the performance because it was awfully dreadful. You know what? Instead of taking ipecac when you want to induce vomitting, just play a recording of the Gold Band playing, it's much faster. They should play our music during interrogations, that'll break the hardest of core terrorists that won't give up a drop of information otherwise. There's no hiding it, our musical skills are completely useless and should be muted for all of eternity so that nobody has to suffer through that terrible, vile, god-awful sound ever again.

Why I Hate Sports

I hate sports.

They’re stupid, they’re dumb.

How can we praise them?

What do they inspire?


Who do they help?


Or perhaps there’s a something.

A something I can’t see.

Or perhaps I’m right.

Besides, what is there to love?

Is the roar of the crowd the only motive?

A lust for blood and sweat their only object?

Are those cheering fans an athlete’s only drive?

As you can clearly see

I fail to find a reason,

Just one,

To like these activities of dread.

And that is why, without doubt

I hate sports.
