Dirpy do

How many people here listen to youtube videos, raise your hands... okay those of you with your hands down, raise them anyway. Alright so everyone here does, awesome. So way back in the day (last year or so, but there was a day involved) I used to use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable to record music off the internet (like youtube). You just plug one end into microphone and the other into speaker and record with audacity. Easy right? Yes, but now there's an easier way... Dirpy. All you need is a Youtube link and you're all set! Download your favorite Youtube videos as mp3's and listen to completely legal things that aren't music! No... no one will ever use this to illegally obtain digital medium of any kind.

Streetlight Manifesto @ Nothern Light 9/23

“You can’t punch people at a ska show,” my friend Trevor said to me as we waited for the first band to play at the Streetlight Manifesto concert this past Wednesday at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, NY. Which is pretty much true. The overall vibe of that was something along the hippie ideal, treat everyone pretty groovy. Even if I wouldn’t necessarily throw the word groovy around to describe ska. Maybe something more along the lines of hyper relaxing. As kinetic as the synergy of a surprising collective of instruments.

Would you could you?

Sooooo, I have a question for all you readers out there (the two of you, yeah you know who you are). Would you kill one to save a thousand? I mean if there was only one way that this thousand could live was to kill that one person, would you do it?
Okay, good answer (or bad answer, or just plain old answer). Now if you said yes (or if you said no, or anything else for that matter) I have yet another question. Would you in fact kill a thousand just to save one? I mean if there was only one way that that one person could live was to kill those thousand people, would you do it? If so, who would that person be?

Batman Ain't Got Shit on these People

Ok, so I have been a fan of parkour since I first saw an action reel of it on WAM. For those of you who don't have a ridiculous cable package, WAM is an offshoot channel of Encore targeted mainly at teens. Anyway, I have a lot of respect for people who can do this. I tried once and almost felt I was going to die. But that is a story for another day I promise. Right now, I want you to enjoy other people doing an amazing feats of awesomeness.

Tron + Daft Punk = Awesome

I will always have a soft spot for Tron. When I was little, Tron was this epic live action Disney movie that had nothing to do with Disney. But even more than that, it made look cool to be a gamer and a nerd. I mean the only other gamer movie at the time was the Wizard. And the gamers in that movie were a douche bag and an autistic kid. Fucking great. Anyway, this is a great visual summary of the movie and it has a bitching Daft Punk soundtrack. I am giving this video the full 5 stars and you should too.

The 13th God ~ Instant Transmogrification ~ Sword 01

The first sword our (currently unnamed) hero obtains is this one. You know you like it like this. Oh, no need for a scroll box this time, wait till you get story line tee hee.

Name: Instant Transmogrification
God: Kuljar
Elemental: Space
Sword Type: Rapier
Power of self: Move instantly between point A and point B, as long as there are no objects completely blocking point B.
Power of attack: Move defender instantly between point A and point B, as long as there are no objects completely blocking point B.
Power of defense: Body takes up no space rendering oneself invisible/invincible, as long as the user doesn't move while in this state.
Power of objection: Change the amount of space an object takes up, this includes size and mass. Objects of changed space only last a short amount of time, depending on how drastic a change.

A sword forged from Kuljar, the god of space. Formed to look like the rapier and was never actually meant for fighting as much as it was meant to defend and be a form of transportation. Kuljar was the kindest of the twelve gods. He did not want to harm anyone, even if it would mean saving the universe. Because of his feelings he decided to be forged into something that would, to his hope, be used never to take another being's life, so he make himself into a mighty sword of transmogrification. Due to the fact that many have lost faith, Kuljar has now lost all but the simplest of his powers, but he can still use limitless power on the other swords, due to their powers being intertwined.

That's pretty much how swords go, probably will take a week to hammer out the next story, so until then, our hero is in limbo, or at least sleeping in his bed. Maybe he should heed a god's will and start doing something eh?

The 13th God ~ Prelude To Rapture~Page 00

Welcome children. Sit around Papa Enzer cause it's story time. That's right, today is Fable Friday and I'll be doing an ongoing story with a section every week. I know, I know, it's going to be horrible, what hell what do I do that isn't? Aaaaanyway, this story is called The 13th God and today is the back story. In fact the back story is so long, I'm going to need a scroll box... hold on while I whip one out.

I feel old, already 1010 years old.

What The Frugal? No it can't be, how could selling a new Dreamcast game be frugal? Sure I enjoyed the system for many years, but it's already 10, and it was killed years ago. Oh and happy birthday by the way. I only wish it wasn't secured to a stake and subsequently burned to death shortly after its birth. But at least its spirit lives on with this publishing company, or maybe they just forgot about it and figured what the heck?

Virus virus everywhere and only a PAX to sink.

What The Flu? Apparently there have been a few cases of the Swine Flu (H1N1) over at the PAX convention. I hope no one from Vale gets sick and turns into a zombie, I need Left 4 Dead 2 first.

There's not a deep enough pit in hell Best Buy.

Welcome to WTF Wednesday. This post's topic? Why The Fib? This one goes out to Best Buy. I don't like to put personal bias in things, but man do I hate you guys 90% of the time. Who here knows what Linux is? If you said no, go on to a different post since the rest of this won't make you Hulk green with anger. Best Buy sells things, and this includes Windows 7. Well now Best Buy wants its employees to see the dark side of Linux. Linux is riddled with issues like incompatibility and security holes. Yep, Best Buy says it so it MUST be true... FALSE. I've used Linux (albeit not too extensively) for over a year. I've never needed to use Wine for anything (windows emulator). I could get my mail and IM people, but I must admit I used windows for games. Now poses that problem, but from what I understand Wine works well with games too, as well as another software I just heard about recently but forgot its name. I haven't used Linux in quite a while, nor had wine installed for the same time (I installed it as a precautionary measure every time I installed Kubuntu) so things have definitely improved. I also have never had issues with any security holes, but I guess the same is said for Windows, excluding malware of any kind and the occasional virus. Anyway here's the link to today's WTF Wednesday article, enjoy. This is why I hate Best Buy (or at least one of them)

Oh look Akira.

Hey there children, I'm baaaaaack, with a bit of Torture Tuesday. Yep, days not over and I've got the THIRD, yes you heard me right boys and girls, third installment of Torture Tuesday, on its first day. So if you've ever watched anime you know Akira yes? If you dont... SHAME ON YOU... but that's really not the issue here, the issue is that it's having a live action version done by Warner Brothers. Do you really want another anime to be torn asunder by Hollywood? If you say yes, then not even the internet can save you. If Akira was being made like this on the other hand, then yes, I would so go watch it.

Hungry? Why wait, grab a leek!

Hmmm? What's this? More than one torture full event in the same 24 hour period? I must hate you guys? Why would you say that? Why do you keep using question marks? Why wouldn't I keep using question marks? Is this your torture? No, it's not your torture? This is, but I can't embed it so... at your own discretion follow the leek?

Who doesn't want to dote up a cat?

So guys, guess what? TORTURE TUESDAY! That's right, it's time to torture our readers (how few in number you may be). So I'm on the E-board of an anime club at my campus, and since I found out they don't like this video all that much, I decided to torture them with it, if they got unruly our president would play it, it was hilarious. So I bring to you the same. Torture, or enjoy. It's the intro to a hentai game Neko Kawaigari and it's called Dote up a Cat.

Tasty, peachy, placenta.

So it's Manic Monday, albeit late in the day, but there's not much to post on Labor Day anyway. Well today, like most days will be, the craziness ensues from Japan. They've got tons of strange foods and drinks, and that's where we are today. Placenta 10000 (which is over 9000 by the way) is just a strange name for any drink, and apparently it's a "jelly drink". Scrumptious. It's over 9000 . Jokes aside this drink is made from the placenta of a pig and in this case it has 10,000mg, or 10g if you're so inclined. Oh and you can also get 400,000mg placenta extract if you want to go there.

Johnny Wanderer is EPIC

So, I enjoy a good a web comic here and there. Yes, I read the standards like VG Cats, Crtl+Alt+Delete, and XKCD. You know, the shit ever other nerd reads. But, I do love me some Megatokyo and Applegeeks too. Well, Ananth over at Applegeeks has another called Johnny Wanderer that he writes with Yuko. Its pretty awesome and deals with hilarious and true events from their daily lives. One such comic, talked about how ridiculously diverse their apartment is. It would have been funny if it ended there. But no. Some guy named Sam Neiland had to write and produce an awesome song to go with it. SWEET! Here is the song for your listening pleasure.

Prelude to Awesome

A review is coming and its tastier than a storm.

Friday, September 4, 2009


Sleep softly girl
Sleep softly girl and enjoy sweet dreams
that carry you to better morrows
Let Morpheus lift you and take you away
to his dreamland kingdom
so that your wishes
can become momentary realities
wrapped in packages shaped like lifetimes
tied neatly with the bows of eternity
given to you to make up for crappy presents
