31st-Dec-2007 11:53 pm - And 2008 begins....
And 2007 has passed just like that... a lot has happened I guess, mostly good, but some bad times. I'm in a new place again this year, I'm single, and I have the prospect of saving money for something to come... w00t! New Years resolutions are useful. I didn't make as many as last year, but they're all still good ones. Yay for achieving some of last years I guess!

So this new years is spent alone in my new house. Playing Guitar Hero 3 as something to do. Was originally planning a party - look how that worked out XD Oh well. I've had my bottle of apple sourz so am happy enough. Work in the morning so I can't have a late night anyways.

Just to wish you all a great 2008! I hope to see a lot more of my friends, and get out a bit more. So that means drag me out places people XD I'm begging you :p

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL! MAKE USE OF THE EXTRA DAY :)
21st-Dec-2007 02:42 am - Christmas is almost upon us...
Yet for some reason, I'm not feeling it! Perhaps due to the lack of decorations around the house? Perhaps due to the lack of general preperation for it on my behalf? Perhaps I'm just a bitter old man now.... who knows! Either way, hardto believe it's only 4 days away, and only 10 till we begin a whole new year! Need to refresh my resolutions actually...

Anyways. What's been happening here? Well, I've moved out for one! The original moving plan was unable to take place at the last minute due to oversights, so for those who don't know I have in fact not moved in with Scott and Sam like was once planned! I now live in Clarence Road down by the Pyramids on Southsea Seafront... Certainly was not my first choice, but I hadn't really had much of a choice. Still! It's not all bad. Although a bit more expensive than my old place and the place I was planning to have, it's a rather nicely furnished and very large house with it's own goddamn weekly cleaner :o. It's shared (again), but not with students this time which will be a change. People seem cool at least, and I'm living with a guy called Nathan who works with computers for a living... sounds familiar :p

By the sounds of it too the rest of the inhabitants may be off home for new years, so perhaps I may be able to host another New Years get together? The place is more than large enough, and still in an easy-ish location to get to. The only real problem is the lack of parking, but if people are away for the time I may be able to steal their parking permits for the night! The guest list is such that I shouldn't need to name you all - The usual suspects :) I'll get things sorted for sure over the next day or so though, and come back with the final yes/no.

Other than that excitement I have a cold, and have been working a lot... And that's really about it!

New years resolution the first - Lead a more interesting life.
13th-Dec-2007 10:56 pm - A rare update from a new source?
Well, I haves a laptop! Randomly managed to acquire one today for the mere sum of £200, to be paid in january. It's rather good as well! Just need to get the charger fixed as I managed to not get the right one... Still, I've been looking for one for a while so am chuffed :)

In other news, I'm moving into a new place tomorrow! I've a lot to write up about that but I can't do that now as I've little battery life left...

Lots of other things have happened in in the last few weeks... I'll update when I can get online properly next. Hopefully tomorrow :D
30th-Nov-2007 10:06 pm - And it begins...
So, moving out of Stanstead road today, and up to North End!

14 months now it's been? Actually doesn't seem that long since I left the island for here... time flies, as they say!

Anyways, the last of my stuff will be moved out in the next few days, and I'd like to thank Nathan and Gary and Dave for having me for so long! Tell me when Gary next visits, I owe you all a meal :p Plus, housewarming party I hope!

Righty, and now to power down the last item... *unplugs PC*

Thankyou Honarud!
17th-Nov-2007 04:57 am - What what?


It's been a looooong time since I've seen this! But Kirsty was lovely enough to remind me of it, and I'm sure some LJers here haven't experienced the most gay 190 seconds of their life yet.
17th-Nov-2007 01:43 am - I AM AN ARTIST

Constructive comments plz, and perhaps a small essay into the underlying racist theme of the drawing.
5th-Nov-2007 03:09 am - NOFX - I heard they suck live
You were wrong! Just got back from seeing them live at the Brixton Academy and tclinhey were far better than I thought they'd be from seeing videos on Youtube. They even (finally) succeeded in playing all the way through The Decline - 18 minute song - without mistakes, which was pretty epic! Of their 21 albums they also managed to play pretty much all stuff I know which a bonus. Although we were in the cheap seats in the upper circle (unreserved!), we had a really good view of things, and it's a real shame that I didn't take me camera with me to get it all on vid... aw wells.

And yes, that's the my first update for ages! I should try more... Lots of stuff has been going on, I've just had no compulsion to write about any of it!
26th-Sep-2007 04:42 am - Halo 3 day!
bleach
So, I got an Xbox360 from my family for my birthday last week, and thought I'd join in on this whole Halo3 fad thing that's going on (I've never owned another Halo game before, so it's all new to me). Seems the game is goddamn amazing, from my first impressions of the online multiplayer. If you have an Xbox360 and don't own this game, reconsider why you have an Xbox360! I have a horrible feeling it's going to be distracting me from the other games I spent all my money on buying for my Xbox :(

On a plus side though, I'm off to London on Saturday to host the London DDR tournament leg, and also to see a wonderful girl I'm getting to know rather well! So I'm looking forward to that, even if I will be sleep deprived as my train is at 5:20am... <3

*is going to be so dead at work tomorrow* -_-
18th-Sep-2007 12:06 am - ATTN: ONI
Got a phone call from Shinji's mother whilst at work today, and it turns out he is currently in Southampton hospital after having his appendix removed at some horrible hour last night! He's fine after she said, as it's just a pretty routine thing... But y'know, still surgery!

As he's in hospital he obviously has to have his phone off so you can't ring him or anything to tell him of your best wishes or whatever... Perhaps send him a text to get when he gets back? Or failing that, drop him in a card or something ^^

Either way, get well soon Dave! even though by the time you can read this you'll already be well I assume >_>
17th-Sep-2007 09:25 am - Random entry!
comet
It's been a while since I've posted last.... but oh well! No rule says I can't have a long break XP

As of 7:40am thismorning I have been 21! Glad I haven't died in a freak accident before now at least :p I'll be having some kind of birthday get together at some point, but I have no idea of exactly when (sometime in october), as I am working a LOT until then :( Still, thanks to all of you who have text me ^_^

On another note, Congratulations to Scott and Sam(sam) XD Married on the 15th September, I wish them a lifetime of happiness! But before that, I wish them a sex and booze fuelled honeymoon, with brief interludes of romance and perhaps some sightseeing! The ceremony was really nice though, everyone looked great, and despite some small problems, the reception was also awesome! I have some random videos I'll upload at some point when I'm not working.

And yes. That's broken my amazing non-posting streak. Only short, but give it time and I'll be going at it like an LJ pro once more!
7th-Aug-2007 03:58 am - AMECON IS FAST APPROACHING!
And I can't wait! Get to see a few people who I haven't seen in ages, as well as the usual faces that never get old. Not only that but I have the double pleasure of running a MTG Unhinged booster draft, AND being the Hentai Panel with Kazz!

So, hope to see you all there learning about japanese sexual habits! And more importantly, I expect everyone to submit some hentai they've created for the art showing/contest thingy! OR ELSE!

:)
24th-Jul-2007 02:16 am - What the shit?
When did I become an idiot? I'm pretty sure I've booked off the week ending 19th August for Amecon. For Amecon. The con that runs from 10-12th August. Meaning my holiday starts on the 13th.

Shall be looking into this in work tomorrow and instantly changing said arrangements with them.



Otherwise, returned from JapanEx approxomately 24 hours ago with Chloe. Was a good event and although shorter staffed than usual, still seemed to run damn well! Plus I spent far too much money on stuff, but the less said about that the better. Thanks to all there for making it a great time as usual, for SAS and Will for ferrying us back and forth to the venue (and having awesome car music), and as always to Colin and Kazz for sharing their hospitality with everyone! Am glad to be part of the team. Might do a proper writeup soon... who knows!



Work in a few hours... I can go to bed now that I've read a real copy of Deathly Hallows, and not the leaked version.
18th-Jul-2007 03:00 am - Harry Potter = Drama!
And livejournal are so good to have featured spoil_me_dh (a spoiler community for the discussion of the new book) in their 'spotlight' section on the front page today!

I myself am reading the leaked photos of the book at the moment, and personally I think that they are real. Everywhere that's selling books will have had copies in days ago. Is everyone *really* believing that not a single person in any of those bookstores/libraries/etc will have taken a copy home and put it online for kicks? Because that seems to be what they're doing here! Not only that, but look at this picture of the book (not spoilers). It looks just like a professional HP book all the way through, and reads like one too (so far, judging on the 10 chapters in I am now). Who would ever go throught the amount of effort required to write and create a whole novel of that quality, just to fool people 4 days before the release of a book?

And people mainly seem to be saying it's fake from what I've seen because JK hasn't done exactly what they think should have been done with the characters. Calling the book a fake because your favourite character died without it being in a 4-page epic battle, where they fought of 20 death eaters single handedly in order to save a loved one before uttering their (tearkerking and highly plot-important) last words... is idiotic. The author writes the books, not you. If you feel they're missing bits, write fanfiction! Authors aren't infallable creatures, and because they may not have written parts of their book how you think they should have, doesn't mean they didn't. Are you JK Rowling? No? Then how can you tell me she didn't write that?

So yeah. I personally think the photos from above are from the real book, and I am enjoying it. I will be buying the book too on monday when I come back from JapanEx of course! If it's different, then I get to have enjoyed a really good and convincing fanfiction as well as the book. If it's the same then I get to enjoy reading it on real paper, and finally owning all 7 of the books! Win-win situation I feel! :D
16th-Jul-2007 03:51 am - A nice night...
Pouring rain outside. Sounds nice against my slightly open window when lying in bed :) Glad I didn't get caught in it on the way back from Chris' bday BBQ though x.x Hope he had a good time, and was good to see him and everyone else again! :D

Dear Jakazid - Don't forget to contact me today about meeting!

And to everyone else! Who is going to JapanEx this weekend? I'll be there under the adoptive care of DDRuk, as usual!
11th-Jul-2007 10:57 pm - Look what I got given at work today!


Unbelievable! I suspect this is one of BlueJs ones that she put into the 2p machines in Clarence Pier at least 1 year ago! Shall ask her to do a handwriting check when she sees this post though, just to clarify. Not that I think too many people have been writing 'Bad Wolf' on coins XD

25th-Jun-2007 12:30 am - At last!

23rd-Jun-2007 05:35 am(no subject)
Hmm... was just woken up to some guys outside at the end of our road having a shouting match. One in the 3rd floor flat, one on the street and they were really shouting at eachother for some reason for a good 10 minutes. Guy on the street walked off after about 15 minutes and hit a few cars on his was down our road, shouting some more to himself in general. Some girl in the flat with the other guy starting shouting at him, and I just got annoyed becuase I was enjoying sleep up until that point :(

Strange how that out of everything has prompted me to update this really! I've mainly spent my last few months working lots, and spending money one essentials (debt). Computer parts are my luxury this month so I can actually use it properly again (yay graphics!), and then more debt the following month XD

And also, for those who aren't aware (anyone who I haven't seen in the last few days basically :p), I went to the island last weekend and this happened!



and now... Back to sleep before work again :)
19th-May-2007 05:42 pm - Gig time!
Off to a gig in Southampton now. Lots of bands playing, but I'm mainly going to see Sikth :p shame the trains are still shit though!

I would have asked to come and visit you Shinji, but I have to be back here early for work tomorrow unfortunately -_-

Plus, my hair is looking awesome. I'll try to get a good pic :D
