On this day 23 years ago, the world was made a better place.

I hope to maintain this level of awesome for at least another 23.

The Update 
Wednesday, March 29, 2006, 03:40 PM - Everything
Man, I feel all weird today. Tired and cranky mostly.

Birthday coming up on the 31st, I'll be the big 2-3. So far no mass depression like the last few years, but more of a forward looking "now what?" What ever "what" turns out to be, I've decided this is the year to make it "now." I've always known what I've wanted out of life, and to dance around pretending I don't really want it is just not cutting it anymore. Time to pounce, and my only worry is that I may worry about worrying. Too late!

There's several major gigs on my plate right now, in Life, Machinima, and Everything. I've spent the last winter mulling over the proper steps to take in pursuing these endeavors and have come to the conclusion that to solve them, I must first approach them. If I can at least walk up to the plate, I've got a as much a chance as anyone else of cracking one over the back wall. (Sorry for the bad baseball analogy, but I was just handed two Texas Rangers tickets.) I figure the more risk I take, the better off I'll be; hey, if only one out of ten pays off, I'll be much better off than if I continue to take none at all. At least then I'll know where I stand.

On the movies front, I've seen V for Vendetta and recommend it, and Inside Man which I can recommend as a rental. Just watched Howl's Moving Castle, and it continues the trend that all Studio Ghibli films make tears of bliss flow from my eyes before the end. I recommend this for your DVD collection. It's a two disk from Walt, and as always I advise you watch in Japanese audio with English Subtitles first. It's almost as re-watchable as Nausicaa (My personal favourite in the Ghibli collection.)

For Games: Finished Fable for the xbox, give it a “meh,” and just started Elder Scrolls IV and so far give it a “Awesome!” even if it kills my high end PC. I've had Guitar Hero for a while, and still play it nearly everyday for half an hour. Also grabbed the Guild Wars a few weeks back. While neat, and much more interesting than WoW for me, I can't help but be not blow away. Elder Scrolls took it's place for now. I went back to Action Half-Life for old times sake, ended up becoming addicted again. If not for Elder Scrolls, I would be playing it right now.

The Silence of Oblivion! 
Tuesday, March 28, 2006, 05:11 PM - Everything
Holy crap! I raided this vampire cave right, killed them all with prejudice (that's what I named my fire-claymore,) as any good Red Guard fighters guild member would do. In my raid I stumbled upon a strange bottled drink called "shadowbane." It must of been a freaking GPS enhanced bottle because I got bit in my sleep that night and now I can't walk outside during the day! (I was way on the other side of the world by then) I've got to feed on the blood of the sleeping by night to boost my vampire powers to maximum! Crazy delicious!

I can run faster, jump higher, I can see at night nearly as well as during the day, and I have a spell that seduces people. (Among a slew of enhancements to battle skills, and one serious weakness to fire) Freaking awesome game! FREAKING AWESOME!

My carefully chosen olive green eyes are now red, and my face is all ugly(er), but it's a small price to pay for being a FREAKING VAMPIRE!

Ok, so I've tweaked colors, font size, and added some links to other machinima sites I felt worthy of your time.

Lets hear some feedback!
