Late Night Update [Oct. 1st, 2006|03:00 am]
Ragnarok
I have realised that I have not posted in quite some time. I think I log on and intend to, I start to read my friends blogs and then I completely forget, now that I can't sleep, I have opportunity. I'm doing alright, keeping my nose clean, doing my thing. I've been looking at some culinary colleges lately and I've come across one that's fairly close to home and seems to have a good three year program, however its website is junk and I'll have to make a trip down there to find a out a little more on the student end. I have been thinking about it for some time along with a few others roads to walk and I figure that, I like to cook and it so happens I'm naturally good at it so why not make a career of it and become a chef? Besides it offers two things I enjoy; working with my hands and using my imagination...ok and eating, three things then.

Not too long ago I was driving a friend home late one night cause it was pissing down rain and on my way back home I was "playing" with the gas peddle. Playing in the sense I was letting it go and then flooring it to see how long it took the engine to kick in. I was the only car on the road at that time. Why was I doing this? I don't have a good reason other than I was bored. So, on one of my floored attempts the car hydroplanes across a puddle and I was heading towards the curb out of sheer reaction, not really thinking, I steered away from the curb. But when the tires landed back on the pavement it caused the car to jerk to the direction I had the wheel and I slid out of control across the road doing a 180 across the street. It was sort of funny, I mean I wasn't freaked out or anything as I was spinning out of control. I just controlled the skid until I was facing the opposite direction and then took a look around to see if anyone saw it. No one was around, so I turned it around and drove home as if to say "that's right, you all saw nothing." I can be such a reckless idiot at times.

My parents got another dog. I don't know what it's called yet. I see it as a replacment for my oldest dog who is on his way out, so I don't really approve of it. My eldest cat died not too long ago and I had to build a small casket for it and bury it, which was a bit weird to say the least. So now the barn yard count is at two cats and three dogs...god damn.

Jesus Christ hunts vampires? [Jul. 22nd, 2006|09:58 am]
Ragnarok
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

I had come home late last night, I wasn't really tired and I was a little hungry so I made something to eat and sat down and started surfing through the channels on the TV. As I was looking through the guide the title "Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter" caught my attention. I selected info on the title and I read something like: "When an army of cunning vampires descend upon the world, it's up to a martial arts-trained Jesus Christ to fend them off."

After reading that I was like, wtf? ok...I HAVE to check this out - at least for a minute or two. I started watching it and it looked crappy I mean the type of film they used must have been ancient 'cause it was a 2001 flick but it looked like something dug out from the 70's. But then there was Jesus Christ, short hair(sort of shaved short) no beard wearing a sweater and what looked to be jogging pants looking sad and fiddling with a plate of perogies (I think they were...they looked like it) and then a waitress comes over and says 'I'll get your desert.' Jesus tries to reply 'I didn't order any desert' before he was cut off as she walked out of ear shot. She (the waitress) comes back with a bowl of cherries and ice cream. Then the camera does the classic kung-fu zoom on the eyes and then the bowl of cherries, then the eyes and then the cherries again; then the cherries started talking...yes talking. It said 'Jesus...Jesus...' and Jesus Christ looks around and says 'Is that you bowl of cherries?' the bowl says 'No, it's me.' Jesus Christ responds 'Oh, hi dad.' I started giggling to myself at how completely stupid this is. Jesus Christ is sitting in a diner having a conversation with is dad through a bowl of ice cream. But even though this looked very bad, I couldn't look away.

I was then treated to a scene where Jesus Christ is making stakes, I assume getting his weapons ready to kill vampires and then he is standing at an airport and he watches as a small plane lands. Then out from the small plane steps out his sidekick to battle these vampires. You'll never guess in a million years who they chose as a side-kick for Jesus Christ. I certainly didn't see this coming. Have any guesses? Well, I'll just tell you...Jesus Christ' vampire killing side kick was a six foot Mexican wrestler!
They're now in a bar and it's Karaoke and the host stands up to the mic and asks for the bar to put their hands together for their lord and saviour Jesus Christ, everyone claps and he jumps on stage and starts to do a little scat-jazz thing number for the crowd. He then his hadned drum sticks and Jesus starts rocking the drums. As he rocks out he notices that only his Mexican wrestler side-kick and his assistant have reflections in the mirrors in the club.
Enter the first fight scene. Jesus Christ, takes a hand full of drumsticks and throws them at the crowd, a group of vampires that were assembled in two lines about five man abreast all get a drum stick in the heart. They fall...so do the line of guys behind them and magically they too have drum sticks in their hearts. Yeah, go figure. Then it cuts to the Mexican wrestler stabbing a vampire in the chest with the legs of a barstool and then turning to this lesbian vampire and going 'I think I love you.' I thought I missed something but then again it's how this movie flowed, shit just happened. After they clear out the bar, Jesus Christ start talking to his "mom" from a glowing statue of Mary on his mantle, telling Jesus to be a good boy in the tone a mom has when she reminds you to clean your room.
Then this crazy looking old man with long hair and beard is standing in some bushes talking wildly into the camera and his eyes fall down real quick and then back up to the camera. I look at the bottom of the screen and I see the top - I kid you not - of his script! The guy is reading straight from his script and it's in the shot, I laughed out loud at this.
So Jesus is caught fighting cheesy vampires and they take him to a junk yard as lesbian vampires are beating up on his side kick hes got two Honda Accords try to pull him (Jesus) apart, Jesus is also in some room with a vampire as the vampire is watching Jesus fight live at the junk yard and the baffled vampire says to Jesus 'But you're at the junk yard fighting live!' to which Jesus replies 'I'm everywhere.' And gives the vampire a sidekick. Then the vampire slides a chair at him and he does this mock Jackie Chan jump off the wall and sits in the chair and crosses his leg and says to the vampire 'Then on the seventh day - he rested.' At this point I was like, Holy shit this movie is so hilariously bad...it's completely awesome! And then the vampire pulls out the intestines of a body at this table and swings them around like a three section staff, trying to immobilize Jesus.
Then near the end of this "movie" Jesus Christ uses his healing powers on a female vampire who asks Jesus to save her girlfriend, so he does, they kiss and Jesus' side kick asks him to save his female-kissing love interest. He does and then the wrestler and her kiss and Jesus then asks 'Hey?! Aren't you lesbian?' and a slight pause she smiles nice and wide at the camera and says 'No! - I'm bi!' and Jesus and the Mexican wrestler smile and go 'alriiight!' to each other and then they do a high-five! Ha-ha-ha!

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. So bad, it's good. I doubt you can walk into a movie store and rent this so search for this and try to download it, it's so worth it because it's fantastically crap.

Finally have a window to update. Things are fairly well at the moment. On the weekend I celebrated my birthday. It started out kinda crap with Italy winning the world cup but it balanced out sort of with Zedane giving a head-butt to one of those drama queens. Still sucks that Italy had won. Anyway, my Birthday was good, everyone came to hangout, people got me some neat stuff, Deb made a chownie that had my wired on sugar for the rest of the night that when I got home I was still wide awake so I started to tire myself out by training till about 3-3:30am. I was a little sore the next morning. But it was a fun day; it had been a long time since I had a birthday like that. I have really great friends and I thank you all again for the gifts and good time.

Anyway it's looking out to be a good weekend, I'll update more when I got the time.

Some people are too fucked up. [Jun. 28th, 2006|02:03 am]
Ragnarok
[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]

It's been a fairly busy time. We are almost finished Mark's bathroom, right now its just small details that only really need one person to do, so in that respects I have a bit of a break from working and such during the day and then spending the evenings doing construction until the sun goes down.

Yesterday I was surprised to find an email sitting in my inbox from this stupid bitch Tia who I hadn't spoken to in a long time. Reason being some idiotic child got it in their head to trash me and start some bullshit rumours about me. And even though what had been said about me completely contradicts how I was with her, she would rather be a mental twat and believe in what was being said rather than looking at the situation logically and going on what she knows of me. Regardless of how faulty the accusation was, she chose to harass and insult me. It was so ridiculous I ignored it, ignored her too. Now, she mails me asking for help, she needs someone to talk to because she's going through some shit. You know, if she even did the decent thing and opened with an apology, I may have flexed the tolerance to at least hearing her out, but no. It was all, hello, I need this and me, me, me. That pissed me right the fuck off. She treats me like shit and behaves with a gross ingratitude for all the times I helped her stupid ass out and then perhaps thinking that me not talking to her for a few months might blow over and I'll fall back in line as if it never happened. Do I have doormat written on me somewhere? It reminds me of other similar pieces of shit that have done the same type of thing and it pisses me off more. I'm sick to death with these people. I mean the fucking nerve of this snake-bitch. I was going to hold my tongue and not say anything but unfortunate for her, she's pretty much dead to me so I figured, fuck it. Upon the advice of others, I think I've held my tongue too much with all this trampling I've received. So I rammed her self-centered ass right in her place. Worse thing that can come from this is that the parasite leaves me alone. Which is good, as if I'd ever allow another cunt the opportunity to use/abuse me again. It still pisses me off. Thinking about it invokes such a bloodlust in me. I wouldn't mind holding all of them up by the hair and slicing their throats open and let them bleed to death all over their own feet. Then discarding them to the side like the piece of shit they are. Because these selfish, manipulative cunts don't even qualify as human beings to me anymore - they are nothing but walking meat and the very sight of them disgusts me.

Anyway, I'm gonna stop before I get too worked up. Besides I'm tired and need sleep.

Mark's new bathroom! [Jun. 14th, 2006|10:06 pm]
Ragnarok
Since Mark had left for his trip to Germany, Chris, Don and me have been hard at work renovating Mark's bathroom. So after the blood sweat and tears, I think we've given the pros a run for their money. Now, considering its edgy new look we felt that it would be helpful for Mark if we labelled the bathroom's five star features.

So, without further adue, we give you frogjimmy's new bathroom. Eat your heart out Debbie Travis.

I'm back. [Jun. 12th, 2006|08:38 am]

Ok, no I didn't go anywhere. I've been meaning to update for a long time now, one of those things that I think about doing in the day but then the day ends, I'm tired and I forget because I'm thinking about what I have to do the next day.

Nothing terribly exciting has gone down lately (well nothing worth bragging about in my opinion). I've been extraordinarily social as of late, meeting new people hanging out etc. to a point that I've found very little open opportunities for some time to myself. Hence the dry spell in updates. I don't want to spend all day typing about everything, so I'll just pluck out a few tales of past events that come to mind. So, let's see...for starters I broke my mom's statue in the front yard with the lawn mower. I had little gas in the tank, I was in a hurry, took the corner to wide and *smash* glass every where. I was surprised it was made of glass because the whole time I thought it was plastic - meh. I blamed it on the wind; my mother thinks it was the pissing kids across the street, who am I to argue her broken logic? The point is I'm off the hook. Actually I don't feel right about lying sicne it happened, so yes, I'm gonna tell her the truth today and see what happens.
I went out for coffee with Deb and for the first time instead of staying in the shop and talking, we went down to that park by the lake (the name escapes me at the moment) and we walked around as we talked. It was a nice day, after walking around for about an hour we found a bench by the lake and sat there talking for a few more hours. It was fun. Some guy rollerblading fell hard on his ass right in front of us trying to be all cool for his date, but humiliated himself instead. Debbie lost all thought on what she was saying trying not to laugh. Lucky for her she turned her back towards him, 'cause the look on his face...priceless. But yeah, It was fun, I learned a few new things about her. We must have talked for at least four hours, so I look forward to doing it again some time soon.
Um, went and seen the movie "Cars" with Don and Shan. An entertaining film, but what was impressive was the attention to detail. Before that me and Don went out for sushi during which I told him about a time when I was playing warcraft, I was in a raid with a person who named their toon "starforce". I mentioned how I thought it very much sounded like an 80's cartoon and that I was making fun of him, telling him to use the "starforce" when he fell short in his playing and I made up an intro theme on the spot and started singing it, most likely annoying the piss outta Mark and to a lesser of annoyance Mike and Deb. It got to a point that I couldn't get the made up theme song out of my head for the rest of the evening. So me and Don toyed with the idea that if it was a cartoon, what would it be like? and we spent the majority of dinner laughing and making up the story, the logo, weird fucked up details like for example, having an underwater base but they only have land and air vehicles and the bad guys have a space station with underwater vehicles. We also tried to squeeze in every 80 cartoon stereo-type we could think of in the show.
I also checked out "Bloodrayne". Bad movie. It sort of seemed like the writer wanted to tell a good mythology of this vampire-human named Rayne, I mean you could sense it was there, it just seemed these people didn't have a clue on how to go about it. The lead, who played "Rayne" Kristina Loken, isn't a strong actress in my opinion. Even in T3 I didn't think she was all that good. Further more, her action scenes were weak, she looked awkward and heavy with the swords. The bad directing did nothing but enhance this. I would have at least sped the film up a frame or two in editing to compensate for her obvious lack of grace and co-ordination. Something one might want to train on if taking an action role to make them a little more plausible as the character. Not every film has the budget for special effects and stunt doubles like in T3 to make you look good as she found out the hard way in this pile of crap. She clearly looked like she had no business playing a heroine. The acting was bad from other cast members too. Seems they had the special effects team from those Troma films to do the gore scenes and they were heli-cam happy to the point you think they created the storyboards around the fact they had one. I'd only pick up this film again only to use as a suitable substitute for toilet paper. Only reason I could ever see anyone wanting to see this is for the scenes in which you see Kristina Loken's tits up close, but then again, they are just tits.
Anyway, I've spent too much time on the internet already, I'll try to update more frequently. For now, I'm wrapping this up.

Good morning. [Apr. 26th, 2006|06:30 am]
Ragnarok
[Current Mood |awake]

It has been a while since I've updated. Over the weekend I went to see Silent Hill, the movie itself wasn't too bad but I was impressed on how much the film looked exactly like the game. Fans of the game would really like this film. The weekend before F&K I went to a little party at Mike and Deb's home. I ended up crashing over, it was good fun. Me and Deb stayed up 'till around 5am eating home made pizza and talking before we finally crashed. Then the next morning I woke up to go up in the attic/roof with Mikey to hunt for raccoons. We didn't find them, just traces that they were there.

- - - -

The following Monday after the party I got completely knocked out by a sickness, the reason why I hadn't updated in awhile. Last time I was hit with an illness like that I was young and had to be admitted to the hospital until I got better. It was hellish, I was "quarantined" to my room for a week. I only left my room to bathe, go to the washroom and get food. During the nights the fevers I got were real bad, my body got so hot at times my skin broke out in heat rashes and the next morning my joints would ache from shaking so bad from the chills. That was just the tip of the iceberg. After I watched every movie I owned I would lay in my bed staring at white walls and after awhile I think that's when it got pretty bad mentally because after I ran through all the entertainment around me I had nothing to distract me from delving inward. One thing is for certain after those long seven days and that is that these days I'm my own worse company. I was relieved to get better so I can leave my room and go see my friends without being worried that I would give them my sickness. Of course spending that much time completely alone has left some impressions on me.

I watched the San Marino GP and I am pleased to see Ferrari not only grab pole position, but win the race. I'm disappointed on how much Barrichello is struggling with Honda since he left Ferrari, I think he's a much better driver than Button is. Michael Schumacher snatched another record that race weekend, replacing the late Aryton Senna's record for most pole positions. I don't think there is anything else in F1 left for him to brake in terms of records in the sport...kind of disgusting if you think about it. Anyway, I have an early start to a busy day today.

Yesterday I finally got myself out of debt but by doing so I've landed myself fuck-ass broke, now I'm fighting the urge to put myself back in debt so I can do things. I can do this, until I build up my savings again, I can do this - after all "doing without" has been my entire life.
I also really wish I had some sort of switch that I can just turn off my emotions, its disappointing that I can't seem to regain the ability to just bottle something and burry it to almost non-existence. If I could have anything in the world, it would be to have that back.

The Australian GP in F1 was disappointing, both Ferraris crashed. Maybe Yamaha in Moto GP can give me something to be pleased about. Anyway, I should go or I'll be "doing without" lunch.

This weekend served as a fairly good distraction for me, at least during the waking hours from a pretty good head trip. Saturday me and Chris went to check out "Slither". Over all it was an entertaining film. A kind of a funny horror movie, like "House" or "Army of Darkness".

Sunday offered an even better distraction, in the afternoon I took advantage of the nice day. Went out to lunch with Don and then after played some basketball with Gord. Then in the evening went out to dinner with the group and then went back to Mark's home to play a Canadian version of Cranium. Then after stayed up for a little bit longer with Mark and Deb talking about how great the toys where as a kid and how the girls had shit toys in comparison (because they did).

Still mulling around the idea of creating another account for all this poetry I'm just sitting on. I suppose considering that only my friends read this, when I think of a name I'll probably post a link on here for easy access. Anyway, back to the ol' usual.

Saturday started out crappy, but it panned out for the better the rest of the evening. Shan tried her hand a cooking the dinner for us that day, with Deb supervising. All in all she did pretty good. Sunday the power went out on our house, due to retards - so I slept in way past the time I set my alarm. That really sucked 'cause I was suppose to meet up with Don earlier in the day and ended up meeting him later in the day. However, we did manage to sneak in an episode of Smallville before we moved on to other activities.
Considering I started both days this weekend pissed off, it turned out to be a decent week hanging out with the gang.

A little while ago I took a page from someone I knew and used to talk to who was good at writing and expressing a part of themselves with poetry, so then I tried my hand at it and began to write poems to sort out muddled emotions that were hard to bottle. For the most part it helped to define what I felt and I used to get good feedback from them. So, I kept it up – I still write today and as I look back at when I first started I feel I've gotten better. Thing is that now I'm sitting on a small pile of poems and I am mulling over the idea to possibly create another account and post them for people (who I know) to read. Maybe even submit them to forums for the people who appreciate and understand poetry as well. I'm still thinking about it, but I may just do so.

I watched the opening race of Moto GP Monday evening, not a good day for Yamaha. Rossi crashed in the first corner and Ducati took the win followed by two Hondas. Even though Rossi was able to get back on his bike, he finished out the race instead of calling it quits when so many others would have in that position simply because they wouldn't get the points. That to me is a classy move. People pay to see him race and that he did regardless of making it to the podium. Good on "Curious George".
