Welcome to Christmas Eve, not sure how everyone else celebrates it but this generally means that people start showing up around here. This year is my sister and her husband, later will be my brother all will be coming over and who knows who else might stumble on over through the night. As per usual when I’m here I tend to go into hiding mode, of course while in this mode I tend to use many distractions so I don’t have to put up with much, my distractions this year are video games and movies. So far today I’ve been playing a little bit of GTA5 and Darksiders 2. I’m getting close to finishing Darksiders 2, I gotta say at times that game is getting on my nerves but thank god for the internet and being able to get my hands on a walk through for just basic ideas on how to pass certain parts of the game.
I know later various snacks will be placed out for all who are here to be able to munch on. I will make my way upstairs to snack on stuff, naturally I will keep my tablet handy because I generally don’t talk a whole lot to my family since I don’t have a whole lot to say about things.
If your wondering why it’s because I lead a very very boring life, yes trust me it’s very boring.
Shortly I’ll have to get ready to bring in wood (hehe wood) , I can see the usual argument getting started between Mom and myself. I’m the only one in the family that doesn’t drink and around this time of the year she says “one drink won’t make you an alcoholic” I tend to combat that with “that’s what most druggies say and one snort won’t make them an addict” she’s never a fan of my reply but it’s either that reply or “that’s fine I’m still not having anything to drink”
So that’s no doubt how my evening is going to go up until everyone leaves and the ones staying here goto bed.
I’m currently trying to figure out what I want to watch in terms of a movie later, although I might just continue watching one of the two tv shows I have been watching recently.
I called this part 1 because I’m sure I’ll have a part 2 later on this evening at some point in time..
For now I’ll post part 1 and later I’ll add a part 2
Much like most people I’m a gamer, not as indepth as others but I do play when I find a game that can hold my attention (keywords: game that holds my attention). As of late it’s been Darksiders 2, I have to say the mix of combat and puzzle solving reminds me to games such as Tomb Raider & Uncharted 4… I mostly play xbox one incase anyone is wondering. But sadly the last two days I’ve became frustrated and some what bored with Darksiders 2, it’s not that I don’t find the game fun, I do.. I really do. It’s just the constant traveling back across the map, it’s becoming a pain in the ass. The story of the game is rather cool though I think that’s what intrigued me the most about the game, I remember getting told about the four horsemen of the apocalypse in school… (yes I went to catholic schools) however it’s funny as I know anyone else who went to one will understand that the main focus is on Jesus and they just barely touch on anything else… But anyways the story is cool but having to constantly travel full length across the map does get tedious at times and right now it’s making me want to put down the controller and find something else to play, I just don’t know what to play. I have had two games in mind:
1 – Minecraft
2 – Star Wars Battlefront
Both games I would have to buy, but right now I don’t know if I want to buy a game since I don’t know what will keep my interest.
For those wondering I’m roughly about half way through Darksiders 2, however I remember reading a report a year or more ago saying that something like 70% of gamers don’t completely finish games. I know I’m in that percentage for sure, but for that I blame myself because I don’t know what I want to play half the time and for the most part I get 3-4 games on the go and something always falls out of rotation to the point of getting completely left behind. So I think I might just look for something else to play and see where that leads me right now.. Times will tell though.
Well as I said in the last post I had six book covers I had to redo, I did manage to get them all done. Only one I had to leave basic with just text since when I was working on it my mind went blank on me, oh well it’s something I can always modify at a later date if my idea comes back to me.
Beverly Hills Cop – Thoughts
The last few nights I sat down and watched Beverly Hills Cop 1,2 & 3. I remember first being introduced to the movies in the 90s as my Father was a big Eddie Murphy fan, so there I was a very young man I don’t even think I was a teenager at the point of my Father showing me those movies. But I don’t think he gave a shit, sure it had gun fights, car chases, topless women and loads and loads of swearing in it. The last Beverly Hills Cop came out in 1994 … But I’ve been seeing on Eddie Murphy’s profile on IMDB that a 4th has been announced but at this point in time no work has been done on it. I know since around 2000 Eddie has really cleaned up his image, he’s been in more PG rated films than anything else so many people grew up with him and know him as Donkey from Shrek, which makes me wonder one thing.. If Beverly Hills Cop 4 comes out, I wonder how many moron parents will think “Ok I’ve seen a bunch of his movies, certainly this can’t be that bad”.. Then take a child to go see it, sure I know I was a fucking child when I was shown the movie but at the time it was in the privacy of our home and my parents have never been ones to get up in arms about some dumb shit, I gotta say these days many parents get up in arms about the dumbest possible shit. It’s sad to watch, what’s sadder is the fact that today’s parents are my fucking age. I’m not directing this at anyone I know so don’t think that, but I remember growing up getting spanked and that sort of shit was a common thing in the house where I grew up. But now the way parenting is done has changed. But I’m not getting into that argument since I know many think the way we were brought up was wrong etc etc etc… The parenting argument is one that I tend to stay clear of cause I don’t have kids of my own, so I’m usually told “if you don’t have kids you can’t speak about the subject at hand”.. I have also learned that responding with “If I was acting like your kid back in the day I would have gotten smacked so fucking hard I would have flown across the store, but at least I would know to act better” is not the answer that they like to hear.
Anyways, I’m done here for now so here’s a music video for the time being: Linkin Park – Crawling
