NOT SO TOUCHING LETTER IN MY OPINION

   I already know that I am going to a fend people with this post. Let me just say that everyone is entitled to there opinion. I will respect yours if you can respect mine. Having said that, I wanted to talk about the news story of the wife/mother who pasted away and left a letter for her husband. If you are not familiar with this story you can find it her: Letter To Family.

   To get the jiff of what the story is all about, a woman died of cancer and left behind her husband and 4 kids. Before she passed, she wrote a letter and gave it to a friend and told her to hold on to it. She wanted the friend to send it to a local radio station once her husband had moved on and was going to get married again. In the letter she had 3 wishes she wanted to radio station to fill. The wish are a day of pampering for her husbands new love, a "magical trip" for the whole family, and night of drinks, food, and fun for the doctors at Mercy Medical Hospital, same place she was treated. The radio station granted all 3 of the wishes.

THE WALKING DEAD 400 DAYS

   I'm so behind on this post it's not funny. I wanted to post this back in July when I first played The Walking Dead 400 Days. I guess better late then never right? And the fact that season 2 has not came out yet just means that I still have time.

   400 days is a middle story between season 1 and 2 of Telltale Games The Walking Dead. Choices you make in 400 Days will effect things going into season 2. There are 6 stories that happen within 400 Days each taking place during the days after the outbreak of Walkers. Some of the choices made in season 1 will carry over into 400 Days.

   Starting you off at a truck stop off the Georgia highway called Gil's Pitstop. On a bulletin board pictures of missing people are posted. You will play as five different characters, Vince, Wyatt, Russell, Bonnie, and Shel that can be picked from the bulletin board. Each story is there own, but will connect in the end.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY COUSIN CAYLEY


 On Wednesday November 27 was my little cousin Cayley's birthday. She lives over a hour away from me so I decide to send her a happy birthday video. You should have seen the smile on my face when I got a video back from her and her brother Chace saying thank you. They are both so cute, love them both! Cayley was lucky and got to go to Disneyland for her birthday! I can't wait to see them both on Christmas. Here is the video of the one I sent, and the one I got back.

SHOPPING ON THANKSGIVING DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE

   Thanksgiving is just around the corner which means in most households dinner with the family and friends. I know that is what I got planned as I am cooking this year for my family. Sadly now a days it means getting ready for big sales on black Friday. I always thought it was crazy of people to spend most of there Thanksgiving night not relaxing after a big meal, watching football, or catching up with family and friends, but to go stand in line for the next day sales.

UPDATE ON POST, GOT MY FIRST TICKET

   My last post was about how I got my first ticket in my truck making a right turn. You can read the whole story here: MY FIRST TICKET. I finally got the price of the ticket in the mail. I could not believe it when I read $238.00. That much for turning against a sign that is not posted all day! All I can say is unbelievable! I guess I will be doing the traffic school so it does not show up on my insurance or lose a point on my licenses.
The coast for that is $297.00! Well I guess it is what it is! Could have been a lot worse, he could have gave me a ticket for running a red light.

GOT MY FIRST TICKET!

   At the beginning of the month on October 4 I got my first ticket. Well technically my first ticket for a traffic violation. I have gotten a jaywalking ticket before years ago, but I won't go into that now. I have been driving since I was 15 years old and I am now 31. 16 years with out no traffic tickets is pretty good if you ask me. I know a lot of people who get tickets all the time.

   Okay, so the morning I got the ticket I was heading to work. Now down at the corner of Station and Castro Valley Boulevard (CVB), where I have to turn everyday, is a sign. Now this sign says,"No Right Turn On Red". The thing is that it is not always there all day, just in the morning. It will open up from like 7 am to I believe 9 am. The rest of the day you can make a right on red.

STILL AROUND AND KICKING

   Well it's been a long time since I made a post on here. So I thought I would just do a quick update to get me motivated to write more. I just started a diet 3 weeks ago. Trying to get ride of this weight. I am just eating oatmeal in the morning, chicken breast and rice for lunch, and fish and veggies for dinner. I have been eating protein bars or carrots in between meals. So far so good. I have one or twice ate a salad or a sandwich instead of the chicken when I ran out. I have noticed that some cloths have been fitting looser. So that is a good sign that it is working. Going to be joining 24hr fitness soon, just need to get some bills paid on some car work I got done.

HORROR MOVIE AT IT'S BEST, THE CONJURING

   The Conjuring came out on July 19th. As soon as I had seen the trailer for it I got pretty excited. I am one who loves horror movies. Now a days though I try not to get myself to excited for them cause the less excited I am, the less disappointed I will be if it turns out bad or just okay. A lot of times you get the best or most scariest parts in the trailers. Also it seems like horror movies now a days are just some random torture, bloody, and gore film, Which is not a bad thing, but I miss them good old horror movies that make you jump from all the suspense that gets built up throughout the movie. And who doesn't love a movie that makes you second guess walking down the dark hallway at night after watching a horror movie that scared the socks off you.

IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, IT'S...HYPERION?

   The latest episode of Disney's XD Avengers Assemble aired today.  The seventh episode of the new series is called Hyperion. This was my first experience with Hyperion even though I a  huge Marvel fan. So I was a little shocked at this character and his similarities to his powers and look to two DC Comic characters. He looked like Captain Marvel, cape to one side and same color scheme, with Superman's powers.

   The show starts off with the Avengers trying to stop a bunch of meteors from destroying the city. There where all doing pretty well until one huge meteor dubbed a "Earth-Eater" for its size, which would be enough to kill everything on the planet. Hulk and Thor use all of there might to try and break it apart and Iron Man tries to slow it down. Iron Man realizing that they where not going to be able to stop it in time starts saying his goodbyes to his teammates. Just then the whole meteor is blown into tiny cubes. As the Avengers regroup and try to figure out what happen, the see Hyperion standing about some of the cubes. He gives a wave and a wink and flies off.

SORRY CUBS FANS, IT WAS JUST A DREAM!

   Last night I had a dream that I was playing baseball. Now as a Oakland Athletics fan, you would think that if I was going to dream about playing for a MLB team it would be them. But no, for some reason I dreamt I was playing for the Chicago Cubs. Which is very strange since the A's and Cubs are not even in the same division or league.

   In my dream I was up to bat. We were in Chicago at Wrigley Field and it was the bottom of the 9th. Down 1 runs and with two outs left. If I make this last out, we lose the World Series and the Chicago White Soxs would win. Being down in the count 1-2, I had to swing to stay alive. I could feel the crowds energy no matter how much I tried to tune them out. As the pitcher gets ready to throw the ball, you can hear the crowd gasp for air hoping for a hit. The pitch comes, a low curve ball. I swing the bat in hops to make contact. SMACK!! I connect with the ball and drive a line drive single to the outfield.

But the crown came to the West Coast tonight.

FOUR DAY VACATION

   I just had a four day weekend over this past 4th Of July. Normally I don't do much for the 4th Of July now a days. Since the 4th fell on a Thursday, I decided to take the 5th off for 2 reasons, first of all I found out that Weird Al Yankovic was going to be at the Alameda County Fair that day, and second of all I just wanted a long weekend. But Friday was not my only fun filled day.

   Well all the fun started before day one. After work on Wednesday I was sitting at home watching the A's game. I looked over at my wife and said," Man I want to go bowling." A few calls later and I was at Castro Valley Bowl in the bar waiting for my people to show up. Castro Valley Bowl on Wednesday nights has a deal, $10 to bowl from 9-12. So the rest of the night was filled with music, laughs, and bowling as I enjoyed the night with my wife Crystal and our family Angelo, Nicole, Brain, and Scott.

RACISM AND HOMOPHOBIC'S IN THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE

With only it's fourth episode of season 15, there has been a lot of controversy in the Big Brother House. Three of the house guest have been caught on video saying racist and/or homophobic things. All three house guest are white. Aaryn is a college student who is also a model from Texas, Gina Marie who is a pageant coordinator from Staten Island, and Spencer who is a railroad conductor from Arkansas.

   On the episode that aired on 7/7/13, CBS showed mostly Aaryn saying both racist and homophobic comments about other house guest behind there back. Also about other races in general. Gina Marie was shown saying racist comments while talking with Aaryn. They are both shown laughing about it like it was a everyday thing they did. As for Spencer, they did not show his homophobic comments towards the only gay house guest, Andy, on the episode. But people who watch the live feed heard what he said and have been posting it online.

DEAD ISLAND DREAMING!!

   The other night I had a interesting dream. I dream't that I was in the middle of the video game Dead Island. Luckily for me, I was one of the immune. I was myself and not another one of the characters. I fought to keep a bunch of survivors alive while we waited for help. Everyone that I was trying to save stayed inside a locked up building where they would be safe.

SHOULD A GUY OVER SPEND ON A DATE?

   Recently a friend showed me a post he saw on Facebook that a female had posted. She basically said that when a guy takes a girl out that he should not spend no less then $100 and have a full tank of gas in there car cause it's a privilege to take out a girl. Now this had my friend and I on the floor laughing when we first read this. Which then lead to us talking about why some women think this way and are feeling on it. Now we did just go off a little and said a lot of things in a funny but annoyed conversion. I just find it funny that someone would think this way.

NINTENDO THEMED SHASTA SODA

   In the late 80's and early 90's in the mist of the the NES's success, Nintendo did a lot of different things to promote and advertise there video games and characters. One of the ways the did that is by teaming up with the soda making company called Shasta. They came up with four different flavors in 8 oz cans that featured four different characters from the Mario Brothers universe. You could also have a chance to win Nintendo prizes from the cans.They were out for a limited time, but very much missed by fans that grew up with the original Nintendo.

MY VIDEO GAMES OF 2012

   Last year I did a list for my video games of 2011, and now with 2012 done and over with, I had to do another list. In 2012 I did not get as many games as I did in the previous year, but still got a pretty good amount. Between there not being to many games that came out that I wanted and the fact that money was really tight last year, I got pretty much what I wanted. If you want to read my 2011 list before this one, here is a link to that post- MY VIDEO GAMES OF 2011 

   Two of my favorite franchises came out with games last year, Silent Hill: Downpour and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Both game were really good. While Downpour was not your normal Silent Hill game, well at least to me anyways, it was still a really good game. Still had some great scares and a good twist at the end. I did think that monsters where not your typical Silent Hill monsters. But I was told that the monsters in Downpour where suppose to be based on the main characters feelings. That would explain what was called "The Void" in other world.

REGULAR SHOW EPISODE VIDEO GAME WIZARD

   Episode 19 of season 3 of the cartoon Regular Show is entitled Video Game Wizard. In this episode the two main characters Mordecai and Rigby enter a video game tournament called the Game Inferno Tournament. This episode is based off the movie The Wizard that came out in 1989 starring Fred Savage. The title alone gives it away as a reference to the movie. 
   After playing video games and Rigby playing so bad that Mordecai wanted to watch TV, they see a commercial for the Game Inferno Tournament. As they show the prize, the Maximum Glove, Rigby is all excited to enter the tournament with his best friend. That excitement is short lived when he finds out that Mordecai had already signed up for the tournament with there other friend Skips. Rigby from then on would try to get Mordecai to change his mind and pick him.

It's going to happen, whether it comes from a ending you did not see coming, a favorite or main characters death, or just maybe a good scary that made you say "What The Fuck"! I thought I would give a few of mine that are not in any order. I will have this as a continuous post, cause there are so many WTF moments in my personal gaming past and future that made me want to write a series of blog post. If I can find videos that show what I am talking about I will put them up.This post does contain spoilers for the games.

TODAY IS THE DAY.....


      So my wife is starting school today and I thought it would be nice to write her a little something on her Facebook wall. I know I am not no poet, but thought a little message would be nice. The comments I got after where all funny from friends and family. Guess they did not know that I (The one they call a verbal abuser) can get sensitive if I wanted to!! Well here is what I wrote this morning.

To Crystal-

Today is the day you start school!

Today is the day things get a little harder!

Today is the day you will find out what your made of!

Today is the day that you start to change your life!

Today is the day both our lives start to change!

Today is the day I am so proud of you!

But just like everyday, today is the day that I love you!

Have a great day at your first day of school, you know I'm behind you!

THE WALKING DEAD GAME EPISODE V NO TIME LEFT

   The final episode of the first season of Tell Tale Games The Walking Dead has came out on November 21, 2011 (Yes I know I am a little late getting this up, life happens!). Quick recap, Lee has been bitten on the arm as he was looking for Clementine who has gone missing.He does not tell the group about being bite, I chose not to tell them, Lee, Because of my choices I have made, could only get Ben to go with him to go find Clementine. As episode IV ended you find out that she has been kidnapped.
   After the quick conversion with the stranger on the walkie talkie, Lee knows to look for Clementine somewhere else in the city. Searching around the morgue, Lee and Ben find a elevator. Lee uses a rib spreader he finds to pry open the elevator doors, he then passes out from his bite. When he wakes up, Ben tells him he was out for awhile. Lee shows Ben the bite and grabs a surgical saw, You can now choose to cut off Lee's arm or not, I chose to cut off his arm hoping it would save him or give him more time, which Lee uses on himself.
