Ohhh, si si si~ I am back from a week-long trek across the midwest. I was invited as a guest to a Pokemon convention in Louisville, KY hosted by Sukoshicon. Not one to turn down an opportunity to be awesome, I glady obliged. For the record, the new Mustang is fantastic for road trips. I popped across the Indiana border and picked up the Pikabug, then met my two other Pikabugpals Rachel (PIKA3) and Xris (PIKA5) in Louisville. But, as per the norm, I prefer a story with pictures, sooooo.....

But, all good things must come to an end. More pictures to come as I find and organize them!

Goings-on and whatnots

Let's see... what's new in the Land of Awesome...

Not a whole lot, really. Settled in, unpacked and organized. Things are returning to some semblance of equilibrium. Leesburg is a quiet little place... it's what Williamsburg would be if Williamsburg didn't suck. There's actually culture, things to do, things to eat and stores that carry items not catered toward rich old white ladies. All it needs is a couple of good launch coasters at my disposal and it'd be perfect.

Axel and Dogface are getting along well. They roll around, chew on each other and do typical collie-things. I should get them some sheep or something, but I don't think the leasing office would approve of my flock.

Axel

Picked up a new toy, as well. It's a 2013 Mustang GT Premium 5.0, Brembo brake package, 3.73 gearing with a six-speed manual transmission. I have been enjoying it greatly, even if the voice-controls for the radio don't work for shit. "Skip." "SYNC?" "No, Skip!" "Ok, syncing options. Is this correct?" "NO. SKIP GOD DAMNIT." "Syncing. Please wait." "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU SYNCING?!" "Please say a command." "FUCK YOU, YOU STUPID CUNT!" "Opening Pandora. Please say a command." *careens off cliff*

That's pretty much it thus far.

God damn, moving sucks giant weenus, but I'm in Leesburg now.

So, 99% moved into new place. There are still a couple things back in Williamsburg... some odds n' ends that I'll pick up next week. Dogface is pleased with his new digs, and in the past 24 hours has slept, rolled and sprawled over every square inch of the place. As one house fell through after another, I have acquired yet another apartment. I'm not particularly thrilled with that, but at least it's nice, has new appliances, is bigger than the old one, and is only short term until I have a down payment for a mortgage.

I'll be picking up Axel next week as well, so Dogface will have another BC to play with. I don't feel as bad having them in an apartment since there is a large dog walk right outside my back door, so they'll have plenty of space to run around and be retarded... which they are.

Jobwise, all is well. Getting paid to hang out with Tora is not a bad way to spend an evening.

Leesburg, here I come. Also, Pokemon.
PUPPYFACE

I don't use this icon enough. Have a puppy.

Well, I have decided on a house in the lovely Evergreen Mill area of Leesburg. It's pretty sexytime. Currently finalizing everything with my Realtor and the listing agent to make magic happen. Give dollars, get house. Easy enough I guess. Should take possession of the property on/by March 1 and spend the rest of the month moving things from the Burg. Dogface will be pleased to have a big fenced-in yard to roll around in, and I will be pleased to have a kitchen I can actually cook in again. Apartment life sucks giant weenus. During this process I will probably be pretty incommunicado, save for minor updates via Twatter.

In other news, things look like they are moving ahead full-steam with Sukoshicon in Louisville. They've got the voice-actor updates and the guest updates on the website now. Looks like I'm spinning B2B with DJ GIANT ROBOT, which should be fun, but all I can imagine is a thirty-foot Cutman. Really looking forward to meeting back up wtih Rachel and Xris for the Pikabug Reunion... I don't think people will be able to handle that much badassery. Also gives me a chance to hang out with my nephew, which I wish I had more opportunity to do, because he's a cool kid.

Sup! I am indeed still alive. The past couple months have been pretty balls-out awesome. And today is my birthday, so my present to myself is a Livejournal update.

GOINGS-ON SINCE LAST CHECKIN:

*Thanksgiving. Awesome. Need video of Kim's mom doing Gangnam Style to watch whenever I feel down.

*Food Drive. Helped the local fuzzies raise a metric fuckton of canned goods for the local food bank.

*Chest AIDS. Sucked. Ten hours in the cold during the food drive bought me a trip to the ER with a chest infection. The only cure was more cigarettes.

*Christmas. Pretty subdued. Hung out with Andy and his family, which is always enjoyable.

*MAGFest. Awesome. Spent the weekend drinking and playing videogames (at MAGFEST?! NO WAY!) with Kim, Dave, Reku, Och.. Ock... Octorok.... some other awesome dude, Karn, Karen, Renard, Tora, bLiNd, Cutman and all other parties involved. I even got free frozen yogurt out of the deal. Reku went through and wrecked shop with his mighty cyberwang, tying for first place in the League of Legends tourney.

*Job. Sexytime. Got the datacenter position I interviewed for back in October. I start on the 18th of February. Currently balls-deep in a mountain of preparations. Found some potential houses. Attempting a March 1 move-in if everything goes through with the bank. I said "Hey, bank. I need to borrow $6000 for a few weeks. I'll give it right back." and they were all... "Hmm, we'll have to think about it." SO here's to hoping. Otherwise I may need to sell a kidney to pull this off.

*Dogface. Still dumb. Has taken to sleeping on the table as of late.

So, that is all for now. More info to come, following the relocation to Ashburn/Sterling/Leesburg/Whichever-I-Decide-On.

Kid's Choice Award by unanimous vote in a local car show... Awesome, but still kinda hax.

So apparently "Don't drive my car until I can fix the tail" means "Wait until I leave the state and then go play dress-up with it." That's what I get for leaving the Pikabug at my mom's place in Indiana. However, tacos are always acceptable. So I'll allow it.

Films
Friggin' Awesome

When someone asks me, "Hey, what kind of movies do you like?" it's a very difficult question to answer. I grew up watching all kinds of shit... horror films, comedies, action, thrillers, dramas... the whole spectrum. My favorite film of all time is Dead Poets Society with Robin Williams, but that certainly doesn't define that genre as my favorite type of film.

However, there is a forgotten genre of film that had its glory days back in the late 70s and into the 80s which I can only describe as "sketch films." In their ranks you will find such classic comedic genius as Kentucky Fried Movie, Amazon Women on the Moon and The Sex O'Clock News. They were essentially 90 minutes of irreverent horse shit smashed together into a single cohesive clusterfuck of pure cinematic art. If you've ever heard me respond to something with "Ain't no Thelma here!" it's a quote from Amazon. These tasteless classics have sadly been buried in time, replaced by inferior slap-stick spoof movies that honestly make my colon clench. (Date Movie, anyone?)

Tonight, however, my faith in humanity was restored by a single film, titled Universal Remote. I watched it on a whim while nosing through Netflix. It started off a little iffy... but after about fifteen minutes I was completely warped back to a time where I was sitting with my dad, snuggled up in my footie pajamas, drinking caffeinated beverages my mother disapproved of me having, and watching hours upon hours of tasteless, culturally-insensitive off-color humor. (Oh stewardess, I speak jive!)

The following clip seriously made me lose my shit in the living room:




...and there you have it. I was a fucked up kid.

Like a mighty phoenix, rising from the ashtray

This weekend has been really good for me. With everything that's been going on with work, potential relocation and all that jazz, I've been weighed down with planning/number crunching/etc and balancing a 50-hour workweek for the past few weeks. This week, I just kinda burned out. It may come to a surprise to a lot of people exactly how introvertive I really am. Solitude and introspection is how I recharge, in turn allowing me to be the outgoing fun-loving smartass that everyone is used to.

I spread myself a little too thin this past week though, and with everyone I know and work with seemingly wanting a piece of me, I knew it was time to pull my head into my shell. So on Friday, I shut off my phone, stayed offline, and started my weekend-long trek of "I'm not doing shit. Time to veg." I've spent the weekend in solitude, out of contact with the world, and much like an Aspie shut-in I set my focus on compiling emulation software, troubleshooting segfault errors and raging about how Ubuntu is a worthless pile of shit (which it is.)

It's Sunday night, and I feel Awesome... like I can once again face the upcoming week head-on. So I cut my phone back on and have now rejoined the land of the living. I'm in the process of doing a Windows 7 build codenamed "HORADRIM." And you can guess why.

It's going to be a good week. Stay a while and listen.

In Flagrante Delicto
