clearly




last night stopped over a friend of mine's house to check out his 42 inch plasma tv with the 360 hooked up to it... uh.. it kinda fucked it up for me once i got home and angrily stared at my tv. of course without a job the concept of actually getting one isn't even an ideal i can throw around BUT i am allowed to be damn irritated.

it was soooo, beautiful and it had these lights in the back (that I originally though were just there like 80's electronics stuff), these light light up depending on what's going on on the screen and it's perfection.

edit-tation




oh-kay i was was abnormally wrong on my original view of NBA 2k7. To put it bluntly i was dead friggin wrong, it's the dopest sports game that i've ever played, period.

i accept that my perfection needs some type of fine tuning, from time to time to maintain it's nirvana and this was was on those times.....

oh lost my job today, kinda a downer but in some ways.. well i'm staying positive and ├╝ber focused... more later.

stay black.. or white.. or asian.. or whatever the hell you are.

Grandma's got a gun




Sadly this revolutionary 92 year old grandma died after shots from the man but she did put 3 of them into the hospital, which is saying something for someone born in 1914.


In other news the fact that there is no Thanksgiving seems to put Swedes & Americans at a lost.... why in the fuck would swedes celebrate thanksgiving here? why would swedes wonder when 'their' thanksgiving is? as i've stated before, repeatedly, i DO NOT celebrate it in the historical context but in the family, food, beer and football manner -- making it my all time second favorite holiday AFTER my birthday (which hopefully will go into world wide recognition by next year).

the "kramer" thing is a moot point to me, at this point, though one must wonder what in the flying fuck this dude was on to go on & on & on like that. Can't Truss 'Em (c) P.E.

TriForce



While keeping abreast of the PS3 and Wii release this weekend, hey it's interesting and the PS3 won't be here till March (bastards). I came across a story about the first guy in line for the Wii in New York's Time Square who legally changed his name to Triforce. In the article the mentioned that he's 29 years old and I immediately pictures a white dude who lived with his mom (i'm saying where in the flying hell would a grown as man have freed money and time to pull off standing in line for a week to buy video games?) I also assumed, as most would, that the closest thing to sex he ever had was that banned part in GTA. I was wrong. Very wrong. Dude is black, married (lives in my beloved Harlem no less)and has traveled the globe playing video games. He has a gamer's collective called the Empire of Arcadia which in considered one of the best in the world AND MTV did a mini documentary on him and his collective.... Besides legally changing his name to Triforce (sorry but that's an L) I actually respect dude and apologize cyber-ly to him being the butt of my monday morning jokes along with THIS guy.

as my british coworker said: only in america

refusing to forget




my parents died on the 15th of November 1981 as a result of a car accident in which my brother and I were in. I wasn't hurt bad but my little brother, David, died from his injuries on the 25th of November. I was six. Instead of tell the whole drawn out story about how I never cried (because there was no one to cry to, at least that's the way I saw it at the time). I simply want to remember them... it gets harder and harder all the time. I remember when I felt this cold feeling when I realized that I couldn't remember my mom's voice anymore or my brother's. Contrary to popular belief I'm actually not as depressed as one would think about it, it's something that I've existed with all of my life so it's really not that strange but there are backlashes to it that pop up from time to time. I won't have them there for anything in my life from marriage to having a child. My future children won't have grandparents. I don't really have anyone to call and release to, in a real sense of the word, I kinda never let down my guard because of that. On the other hand I'll never have to worry about my parents growing old, having medical problems and eventually dying. The 15th of November is also the birthday of my 'little sister' Carla who was killed along with my best friend in 1999. I used to always tell her how much I hated her birthday... now I really do. I can remember her well though and it's easier to place pieces of her in my memory banks to save because I know what you forget. Anyway, I'm sitting here at work remembering them... like i said, i'm not depressed simply refusing to forget...
