Random Thoughts On A Sunday Morning Updated To 6-30

Recommended Posts

You know what I hate most about playing online games on XBL? When annoying asses leave their mics on and all you hear is their static crap for the entire time playing. And the whiny 10 year olds.

Funny story while playing today. A kid was on when he wasn't suppose to be on and in the background all you could hear was "TURN THAT GAME OFF IM IN THE SHOWER" from his dad. Then the kid was like "OK OK". LMAO

That's hilarious :lmao:

...I've been messing around DJing and I figured it's my release from the world. Simply being able to manipulate current music and having full control of the crowd's vibe is just amazing.

...Justice delivers again with a video for their song DVNO. Those guys are going places. Think Daft Punk but with an 80's electro/rock influence.

...This one girl suggested we get married, I asked why, and she said she "just wanted the status". Unfortunately I have morals so I said I didn't know whether to laugh in her face or walk away. So I did what Kccitystar would do. Laugh in her face. :)

...I've been playing Counter-Strike a lot lately and MVP Baseball much less....:(

...I hope I passed my psychology test.

Kids on XBL are annoying, half the kids on there yell and complain when they get killed, and the other half try to make fun of my gamertag and fail miserably.

This is one of the reasons I let my XBL Gold membership lapse....although since a lot of guys play COD4 online here, along with MLB 2K8 being released this week, I may have to purchase a new membership.

...Thanks to MLB for playing a game in Mexican soil. Today the Dbacks and the White Sox are playing in Estadio Hector Espino in Hermosillo... too bad I couldn't find any tickets :( ... well at least I can watch the game for free on internet :)

....You guys have no idea how happy I am to be back here with all of you instead of being out of town for the weekend like I was.

...I hate tractor trailer drivers. These a-holes don't care what the weather conditions are, they still fly past you at 70 mph. On the NYS thruway and on Route 81 south past Syracuse these jokers acted like it was the middle of July instead of a snowstorm.

...Lucky me got to sleep in his favorite bed down there, the real soft one with no support. Try to picture Frankenstein when he was walking, stiff and rigid. That's me right now.

...Right after I write this post I have to go check up on the news in the world of sports and the world in general. They have a paper down there where my wife's family lives, but it's only good for lining the birdcage.

...On the way home we drove through Elmira, New York. That's Mark Twain country. I waved as we went past. No one waved back.

...Every time I take route 390 home past Elmira, I see a sign for the historical Newton Battlefield State Park. Well I never knew what it was until just now when I looked it up. Seems as if in 1779 the Continental Army went there and beat up a bunch of Iroquois Indians who were pro-British. Anyways, now I know and so do you.

...I didn't do a G.D. thing yesterday except watch TV and sleep in a chair. There's no internet access there. They're lucky they have a telephone. I had to watch a stupid movie called "Tommy Boy" with the late Chris Farley. He is another guy that I don't think is funny at all.

...All I know is that I support Hank Steinbrenner's comment in the latest issue of ESPN the (horse****)Magazine

"Red Sox Nation? What a bunch of [expletive] that is," he said in an interview with The New York Times' Play magazine. "That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans.

"Go anywhere in America and you won't see Red Sox hats and jackets, you'll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We're going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order."

Brings a tear to my eye you guys, it really does.

...And seeing Kei Igawa still in a Yankee uniform brings a tear to my other eye.

...Want a good classic CD to listen to? Try The Who's Quadrophenia. Anything they did with Keith Moon it was great.

I'm seeing them live later this month at a club in Toronto. Can't wait. My favourite Justice song is still the first one they ever did (professionally).

I gotta say as much as I dislike the Yankees, it's nice to see a crazy Steinbrenner mouthing off again. I missed that about George the past couple of seasons....looks like his son is going to be just as crazy....

Updated to 3-9

...Since I've been home recovering from this knee surgery I can not sleep through the night for some reason, and tonight is no different. So, I'm here.

...Speaking of that, I got to go see the knee doctor on Thursday. I am in no way ready to go back. I can't even go outside and walk on that snow without it bothering me.

...This weather sucks, doesn't it? I think brutushayesosu, when he said this in the shoutbox yesterday, really summed it up: "Tuesday it was 60 degrees here. Friday and today....Old Man Winter spreads his cheeks and squats."

...I just love reading and talking about baseball and everything about it during spring training. About the new prospects, your team's chances, listening to experiences of you lucky few on here that live in Arizona or Florida that get a chance to see this, everything. Not even the weather can over shadow this.

...But you got to remember, the result of the games don't matter. That's misleading about the spring. Hey, even Kyle Farnsworthless is looking good right now, you know what I mean?

...Call them what you want, Devil Rays or Rays, they're still the same old a-holes to me. This just adds another reason why I can't stand that Tampa Bay team. All I can hope is that someone gives it to them for what they did to Yankee prospect Francisco Cervelli.

...You know what the best part of being on staff here is? When you get to deal with new users who get such a big kick out what is offered here. I had three different ones this week that I exchanged PM's with that are overwhelmed at what this site has and what you great modders have done with this game. I don't think there are enough thank-you's in the world that you guys can get for your work.

...Anyone try that Gatorade G2 yet? That stuff's good, especially the grape. And that Snapple Antioxidant water isn't bad either.

...I have a fear of eating or drinking anything past the expiration date. If orange juice in my refrigerator expired yesterday, I won't touch it. Same for any kind of food.

...I'm not a beer drinker. Let me say that right off. But when I was in 7-11 this week I saw this for sale. What the heck is up with beer with clam juice? They don't sound like they should go together. Maybe it's an acquired taste? If so, I'm not acquiring it.

...Daylight Savings Time starts today, so we got to turn our clocks one hour ahead.

...I hear the plows outside constantly as I write. Not good. I think I'll try to go back to bed and try not to think about it.

... I just watched a great video on Youtube named "Food Fight" and it's about the wars from WWII to our times and countries are represented by their food (complete food list on the video and its country) (The list of the wars that are represented in the video)

...

G2 = Jeter Juice

Thats what I call it

G2 = low calorie hydrator = water

...Snapple Antioxidant water? I love Snapple, everytime I travel to the US I ave to buy at least one but I always choose Lemonade because it's my favorite, but water? WTH...

...Back to the MVP talk, salva is making a great progress in his modding skills, we both have made some updates on Mexican stadiums and comparing these to the 07 ones... wow...

...Don't forget it kids, eat Fruits and Baseball!

Have a great week

Well, ever since he began to pitch from the windup you can see he has been pitching much better. Hopefully he can deliver during the season the way he is now.

Some photos taken recently;

Clearing the floors for explosives - this block of flats is to be demolished sometime in the near future.

2302081653cl2.th.jpg

A soon-to-be-demolished but legendary wall - some of Glasgow's best artists have thrown their names up on this wall.

0103081439gc4.th.jpg

A snowy Glasgow on Monday, featuring more of the high-rise flats. I have some videos of this snow as well...rare occurrence these days in Glasgow.

0303080735hz4.th.jpg 0303080755df5.th.jpg 0303081710am5.th.jpg 0303081712yp0.th.jpg

On the laptop right now...for some reason, my desktop has stopped resolving DNS host names. I can ping out to my DNS server and any other remote IP addresses, but can't resolve a single host name. Pain in the ***. Flushed and re-registered DNS, no luck. I'm thinking I might need to re-install TCP/IP, which would be a royal pain in the *** with my current network setup.

Haye/Maccarinelli last night...didn't quite live up to the hype, but who can blame Haye for stopping him in 2 rounds? After he got up, Maccarinelli almost reminded me of Zab Judah in the Kostya Tszyu fight - he was all over the place. Looking forward to seeing Haye at heavyweight. Next up are the Amir Khan and Joe Calzaghe fights in early April. Should be a good month for boxing.

Holiday from work for 1 week...thank God. Planning on spending it getting back in shape. Put on 5 pounds in 6 days last week, so I've been on the weights and the rope since. It's amazing how much a little conditioning can do for your body. If only the roads weren't so damn icy I could do some roadwork as well, but falling flat on my *** and breaking a wrist isn't exactly conducive to a good workout regimen.

Bones, the TV show, is incredibly addictive. A friend gave me a copy of the first series on DVD a month or so ago, and I'm on to series 2 now. Very good...plus, Emily Deschanel and Michaela Conlin are incredibly hot. Also recognised T.J. Thyne as Volunteer Officer Pickelstein/Gerald/pothead from How High, and Tamara Taylor in the second series from Senseless.

Thank God baseball is back. Looking forward to recording some games on my DVR. I just wish there was more Spring Training coverage.

Thanks for the link on the Cervelli story, Y4L, hadn't read that yet. That sucks for Cervelli, he was probably going to be the starting catcher in Trenton this year, if Jesus Montero didn't get it. So much for that plan. Thank you very much, Devil Rays. Expect some HBP in the next few days.

I'm really tempted by The Show, but I flat out refuse to buy a PS3, and I need more reports on the PS2 capability before I take the plunge on it. Looks like a fantastic game though. Now if only it were available for PC...

Finally, shaving is also a pain in the ***. Is it both safe and aesthetically pleasing to wax your face?

Anyways, time to go. Adios.

This may seem a little unusual as I never post in this thread, but I just wanted to get some of my thoughts out.

* I have been swamped for the last month or so with college (mid-terms next week, btw), work, extra-curricular and my desire to continue modding. But the good thing is I am actually enjoying every bit of it. I never would have said this when I was in undergraduate (electrical engineering major) but my grad school (MBA) has been a real treat. The professors are really great and the friends that I have made have become very close.

* I am quite happy and appreciative that a lot of people have been downloading my total concept uniforms. As it stands now, there have been well over 1200 downloads. I knew that there were some who would download the pack but figured that most would prefer to download thespungo's uniforms as they are (1)accurate for the 2008 season, and (2) they are downright gorgeous. Hopefully I can get the remaining two divisions soon enough and get the whole pack uploaded.

BTW, for any of you Reds fans out there, there is an added bonus in it for you; mainly because krawhitham is a Reds fan. :smile:

* I thought that Manny had reported to Spring Training on time and his picture taken with the rest of the team. But looks like that was not the case. We are stuck with that same picture for another year now I guess.

* For any of you who live in and around Atlanta, have you guys ever been to Tallulah Gorge? I have been there 4 times now since the beginning of the year and I love it. Especially the hiking trail is wonderful. Me and and my friends went there last month and enjoyed every bit of it.

* I am cooking up a little treat for everyone; once the pressbox photos are updated. The works have already begun but just waiting on those pics. There is also a high possibility that I may work on creating uniforms for all teams from the 1970s to present. Not entirely sure about it as its quite a daunting task, but we will see how it goes once I start working on it.
