I just wanted to wish everyone out there a safe and fun halloween, and hope you all manage to avoid the spirits, Werewolves and Zombies that are running around out there…and believe you be, they ARE out there.

To celebrate the spookiness of Halloween, ive changed the look of the blog for today..ill change it back sometime tomorrow….mebbe…it does look kinda spiffy all dark though….

So, I didn’t go to Vegas this weekend. I am still kicking myself over it. They had a blast though, which is GREAT! I just kinda wish I got to be a part of it. I would have loved to have met some of the coolest people I know from online. I mean, they aren’t as cool as me….but, let’s be honest. They are only mortals.

So, I missed out this time. Should another time come around…where I get a chance to meet these home chickens, you can bet your sweet bippy I am going to be there with friggen bells on. Nothing will me keep me away, short of some kind of disaster…and if its going to some horrible place….like…Hell or Texas…or oklahoma.

I am really kicking myself for missing this thing though. -.-

I’ve been reading the Dragonlance Chronicle….yea, I know…the books like from the 80’s. However I am just now getting around to reading them. Blame Television! It’s TVs fault, not airing any decent shows lately. Forcing me to read books!

At any rate, it’s actually a very good series of books, and I know there are some games based on the setting, and some RP campaigns and such, but what I would love to see is an MMORPG in this setting. I know there is D&D Online, but im not sure what world that game is set it, but i’m assuming it’s set in Forgotten Realms.

But, Yea, I would LOVE to see “Dragonlance Chronicles Online”. It could work the same way as Lord of the Rings Online works…Where you are adventuring in the world at the same time the companions are out there fighting the dragonarmy and all that…I think it would be a blast..I would buy it and subscribe to it….As long as it played like normal MMORPGs and not like the standard TSR cRPG titles. I just can’t get into those, which is a shame, because I freaking LOVE D&D stories.

Some friends that I met through the online game/community called “Second Life” is planning a small get together/meeting this weekend. I really want to go, but unfortunately not going to be able to. No doubt this is going to infuriate my friends, but it can’t be avoided…..exactly.

See, I recently broke my ankle, and have my ankle in a cast, which makes it difficult to drive 5 and a half hours to Vegas. I have one good foot, and while moving about a small town is simple enough, getting through a big city like Vegas, and the long drive there? Not so safe I don’t think. On top of that, I would only be there a day….two days at MAX! Which means I would be BACK on the road, driving 5 and a half hours yet AGAIN.

I would love to meet these friends, To hang out them, to shake their hands and just be like all “What’s up?” and just have a good ol’ time, however I don’t see a way to be able to do that SAFELY….And, assuming I get to Vegas and Back still alive in one piece…There’s still the fact that I wouldn’t be able to do much while im there. I mean, as it is here I have to hobble all over the place. Even to answer the phone, by the time I hobble over to the phone, the people have hung up…..and I seriously doubt anyone will carry me.

Ok, as of today KOTOR Online is officially announced, even has it’s own spiffy web address. I am really STOKED about this game, and since it’s being brought out by BioWare, I have high expectations! It’s hard not to with classics like KOTOR, Jade Empire and Mass Effect. I mean, how can you NOT have faith in this game company.

Granted, this isn’t the first Star Wars MMO to come out. There was also Star Wars Galaxies, but come on…have you guys played this game? It sucks! It made me wish I had a light sabre so i could stab my eyes out. SOE did what I thought was the impossible, and completely DESTROYED the Star Wars mythos. It took the KOTOR series to restore my faith in the franchise.

I have been wanting to try out Warhammer Online, but instead…I think im going to hold off for the KOTOR online game, and stick with the games i have now.

Lifehouse – Whatever it Takes

A strangled smile fell from your face
It kills me that I hurt you this way
The worst part is that I didn’t even know
Now there’s a million reasons for you to go
But if you can find a reason to stay

I’ll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what’s at stake
I know that I’ve let you down
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I’ll keep us together whatever it takes

She said “If we’re gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don’t hide the broken parts that I need to see”
She said “Like it or not it’s the way it’s gotta be
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me”

I’ll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what’s at stake
I know that I’ve let you down
And if you give me a chance
And give me a break
I’ll keep us together, I know you deserve much better

But remember the time I told you the way that I felt
That I’d be lost without you and never find myself
Let’s hold onto each other above everything else
Start over, start over

I’ll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what’s at stake
I know I’ve let you down
And if you give me a chance
And believe that I can change
I’ll keep us together whatever it takes

So, I was watching an episode of “Rescue me” a few days back, and in the credits they listed “Coma Boy” now, this was a reoccuring character, granted…his name was never said, cause the kid was in a Coma…but come on!  Coma Boy? Couldn’t they have just given the kid a name? Morgan, Stevie, Tobey….Any of those would be better in credit listings than “Coma Boy”….That just sounds like…a really bad super hero.

Other instances was “Drunk Girl”….There were a LOT of drunk girls, but I assume this referred to the drunk chick who flashed the main character her boobies. Since, it has character interaction…it went beyond just an extra I suppose.

What about “Skater #1” and “Skater #2”? Now, I know the skaters they are talking about…but both came on the screen at the exact same moment…so, which is number 1 and which is number 2? And how did they decide who gets the number 1 spot?? :O

See? Credits confuse me…..Still…The “Coma boy” just cracks me up.
