Comment System Update

I was getting a lot of spam-bots in some older posts, so I disabled the anonymous comment posting for now until I figure out what to do. If you’ll want to comment, you’ll have to create an account and login (don’t worry, your email isn’t made public, I only use it for my use so that I can make sure I know who is registering/commenting). I’ll let you know when anonymous comments are available again.

Merry Christmas!

To all of you out there who are readers (and even to all of you who aren’t), I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and hope you’re having a great time spending your time with family and friends.

Random Update

So school’s officially out. And everyone else is out of the apartment. I like Christmas break and all, and I enjoy being with my family but I miss not having anyone around town. And to think that I have one more semester of college left… it’s almost impossible to think that I’ve already gone through 3 1/2 years of college. It’s kind of a nice surprise and scary at the same time, especially considering that I don’t know anything of what is ahead.

I’ve done a lot of thinking lately too, and I’ve come to term with a few of the issues I’ve been dealing with. Life isn’t perfect, and I don’t think it ever will be, but some loose ends are finally getting tied up…

Video Games Live

Thursday, December 14th, 2006 @ 6:27pm

I found another video of another game concert series touring called Video Games Live. I’m not as impressed by this tour, but they still seem to do a pretty good performance non-the-less. Some of this stuff sounds like it was pulled directly from the Orchestral Game Concert series (performed in Japan nearly over 10 years ago) so it’s not anything new.

London ’06:
Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros.

There’s also a few other themes if you’re interested (and want to search on YouTube) such as Final Fantasy, Halo 3, and some other retro arcade themes.

You… Shall… Not… Pass!

Just a little humor to lighten up your finals week. I would love to see no passing signs that look like this!

You shall not pass!

Edit: This has been brought to my attention. By no means am I saying, “You shall not pass your finals.” I hope all of you do pass your finals, and hopefully no wizards in gray clothing will stop you.

Play! A Video Game Symphony

Sunday, December 3rd, 2006 @ 5:57pm

If you know me well, you will know that I love almost anything orchestrated especially if it involves any kind of video game themes. I happened across a couple of videos of a touring concert called, “Play! – A Video Game Symphony” that I would like to share. Enjoy!

Performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra:
Mario Medley
Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross Medley
Legend of Zelda Medley
Final Fantasy

It’s been a few days, so I felt like something should go here. It’ll probably be mostly random.

I don’t really have anything to ramble about, I suppose things have been going pretty well so far, although busy. Only one more week of school before finals… it’s so hard to believe. People keep asking me what I’m going to do when I graduate… and I don’t really know at this point. I mean, other than the obvious (get a job, get married, have a family, etc.), I don’t really know. A lot of things have yet to fall into place and I’m not at a point in time where I can make judgments on certain things. To think that the rest of my life depends on decisions I make in the next 6 months… it’s mind boggling and overwhelming. I try not to think about it too much.

Although, I feel like I have a lot of things to say but really don’t have anyone to say them to. There are things I’d like to ramble about at the very least, but don’t want to burden anyone with my troubles. It’s odd how I like to help other people as much as I can but I almost hardly allow anyone to help me. Is that really so wrong? Certainly it can’t be good to keep everything to yourself, but at the same time who would really want to listen?

This week, I’ve felt really old all of a sudden and I’m not exactly sure why. Sure, 22 isn’t really that old but it almost seems that way. Maybe it’s because it’s my last year of school. Maybe it’s because I thought life would be different at 22 (when I was younger). Maybe… who knows?

This next week should be even more hectic than the previous. I have at least 2 group type projects in the works for COSC along with a Japanese final coming up. Not to mention my other finals next week. Thank goodness for Christmas break.

I’ve been considering stopping the “journal” aspect of this site and just posting interesting links/videos I find on the internet. It seems pointless to post here if no one is reading, and if they’re really interested in what’s going on they can always ask me. I don’t know, I’m kind of indifferent about it, and I may not do it, but I’m considering it at the very least…

The Weekend without an End

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006 @ 10:56pm

Only two more weeks of school left, yet it’s the busiest two weeks of school. Although, it feels a bit like a roller coaster right now with so many things going on. Scores of projects due, and finals coming up as well… it’ll be so nice when it’s over!

Piano and Drum Video

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006 @ 10:56pm

A pretty cool video of some guy who put together a video of him “playing” the piano and a drum set. The video is pretty hard to explain, so just watch it!
