Little bit of sunshine

Well, there’s finally some good news to report to the world. I mentioned the busted pipe issue in my last post, well it doesn’t look like the floor is going to have to be replaced. That’s some good news finally. As for the pipes, I am not exactly a handi-man. However I think I can fix this myself. I do know a little bit, and I am firmly confident that I have the abilities and skills to do this myself. I will begin tomorrow.

Wish me luck.

Well, today has officially been the icing on the top of my monthlong baking crap-cake! Everything that COULD go wrong, officially HAS gone wrong. This morning it starts where I wake up, as usual early as fuck. I get up, stumble around the bedroom a bit, walk into the bathroom, and I slipped! Busted my knee up pretty bad, messed my ankle up, hit my head on the corner of the sink as I fell to the floor. Ended up going to the hospital, thankfully no concussions or anything. I also didn’t BREAK anything, although it sure feels like I did.

But the icing doesnt stop there! No siree-bob! It continues. See, the next question should be “Well shaide, what the hell did you slip on??” Well, allow me to answer that friendly reader! See, during the night, apparently a pipe busted in the bathroom, which caused water to flood the floor. On another note, the floor I think is going to have to be ripped up and replaced..im not sure of this exactly yet. Thats just a hunch. So, i had to have the water company come down here while I was off to see Doctor Doolittle, and had the nice water guy shut my water off. So, currently, I am without bloody water until I get the pipe fixed, which probably will only be a few days, but if you know me, then you know i have this habit of taking 5 showers a day. Now without water this is going to seriously affect that habit, because as it is I am going to have to run by my mums to use HER shower until it gets fixed.

UGH! When it rains it pours.

Apparently the pope has gone insane. That’s the only logical explanation! Otherwise Condoms really DO cause STDs.

The Punisher! I would say he is my favorite Super-hero, but in all honesty, can he be considered a super-hero? If anything he is a criminal, even if his actions are what saves lives. By definition, he is a criminal, I would even go so far as to say he is a Serial Killer. So, since he can’t be really considered a super hero, all i can say he is one of my most favorite comic book characters. He ranks up there with Richard Fell, Yorick, Rick Grimes and Jesse Custer. Although The punisher fits closer to the “Super Hero” category than the comic characters I just mentioned.

There have also been several attempts to capture the greatness of the Punisher comics, and none of them were able to quite do it. There was always something missing. So, let’s take a look at past Punisher flicks, and point and laugh at them til they cry and pee their pants in the sandbox shall we? 🙂

The Punisher: The WORST punisher film ever released. I am surprised Marvel even allowed this. This is just a vigiliante movie. They stuck the title “The Punisher” on it to try and score with comic book fan boys. Frank Castle through out the movie never even wears the skull! Sure, he has a dagger that has a skull on it, but that’s nothing.

As if the skull thing wasn’t enough, they Changed his wifes name to Julie instead of Maria and instead of having a son and a daughter, he had 2 daughters. Whats the point of EITHER of these changes? Nothing! There’s more changes too. Instead of the family having a picnic and being gunned down by the mob and frank getting left for dead, the writers decided it would be cooler to have Franks family get blown up in a car bomb that was designed for him.

Lot of changes! If they named the main Character to Marc Walrus, I would never have known it was supposed to be the Punisher! It’s obvious to see why this movie flopped! Oh yea, and it had Dolph lundgren, so obviously it was destined for failure.

The Punisher: several years pass, the stench of the 1989 movie of the same name has lifted, movie companies decide “We have more technology now! We can create a more complex piece of cinema crap!” thus they proceeded to create The punisher! This movie too failed and was frowned on by most people actually. I mean, it turned out less crap than Dolphs version, but seriously guys, is that anything to brag about? That’s like saying “Look! My oozing crotch sore drips less puss than yours!”

So, what made the next incarnation of the Punisher suck? Well, for me it was because plotwise the movie borrowed WAY to much from the comics. I mean, esentially i was just reading the Garth Ennis run of my Punisher Comics all mished and mashed and mixxed together. Sadly I don’t believe there was enough originality to hold my interest. I will state though, that out of the three movie released, this is my favorite. That’s not saying much though.

Punisher War Zone: The newest Punisher movie outing. I had hopes for this movie. Three time’s the charm I muttered to myself. I sincerely believed this movie, would at least fall into the realm of tolerable. I was wrong.

To me, it was a hard choice to make. Was the ’89 punisher flick or this punisher flick the worst movie ever? It was difficult to decide. What did save this movie from being the worst, was at least it stayed true to the comics to a degree. Plus Ray Stevenson made a more realistic punisher than the previous actors.

So, WHY did the newest punisher flick suck? True to source material, Original content, someone that actually fits the bill of Frank Castle? Where did they go wrong? Oh yes! Wayne Knight was in it! Yea, that helped sink it! Also the movie was more boring than watching snot dribble out of the  nose of a sick old man.

BONUS!!: The last two Punisher movies have inspired video games. “The Punisher Video game” was inspired by the second movie in these stinking bombs. It also has the voice of Thomas Jane….and is quite possibly the BEST video game ever produced! No shit? No SHIT!

Not to be outdone, The newest Punisher movie too has inspired a video game. This game is called “Punisher: No mercy” Which at the time of this writing looks like its going to be a piece of crap. I could however be wrong though. If I am, I will be the first to admit that I do indeed suck! 😀

All kinds of sick!

Ok, so I woke up this morning feeling HORRIBLE! My throat feels hurts and feels like it’s ripped to shreds, my nose is dripping worse than the faucet on my kitchen sink, I can taste blood in my mouth, im assuming from my throat, my heads pounding like a jackhammer, and its in the low 60’s today, but I am sweating like a madman!

Madmen do sweat right? I mean, they always show them all sweaty and stuff, althought I guess that’s to add to the creepieness. Not that I am creepy! I am just sweating like a creepy mad man. 😕

Anywhose! You now know I am sicker than a dog, and there not really much else for me to say or whinge about, so instead I think I am going to lay down, and maybe if I am lucky I can manage to sleep this cold, or flu, or whatever it is away. Although I may just go play NeverWinter Nights, as I have heard this game does cure many sicknesses. What? It’s true! :O Look it up on the internets if you don’t believe me!

You know what? I’m in a foul mood. Which is odd, cause anyone who knows me, can tell you that I dont get into foul moods. Sure, sometimes I get grumpy, but my mood never fouls. On the bright side, I am alive and well! That’s good right? On the downside my throats killing me, and I keep coughing up a storm.

Sometimes it would be nice if things just went my way just ONCE.

On a totally unrelated note: the Trilogy of “Last Summer” movies get lamer and lamer as they go. If you stopped watching them after the first one, you may begin counting your blessings. If you too have suffered through the whole series(Especially if you did like me and watched em all on the same night) then you have my heartfelt condolences.

I have recently begun playing a computer RPG called Neverwinter Night. The original one, not Neverwinter Nights 2, although I did pick that up when i bought the first one. However, I wanted to play the original before digging into the next one. Yes, I know the second game doesnt require first game knowledge. However, it doesnt really hurt either.

Anyway, I have been playing this game and I must confess I am totally hooked on it! The game reminds me a LOT of the original Everquest game(Which oddly enough Neverwinter Nights 2 reminds me of Everquest 2. I may not be playing NWN2 first, but im not silly either I did make a character and fiddle in the tutorial section). Not just in graphics either, but also the setting. Combine that with NPC spell casters just standing around making glowing particles surround themselves. This isn’t a bad thing, I am a huge fan of the Everquest games. In fact the only thing I didnt like about EverQuest was the fact that the game wasn’t story oriented. Neverwinter Nights however obviously IS story oriented. Thus it ranks up as one of my all time favorite games EVER.

So, some of you might be wondering what made me decide to play this game after OH so many years. To be honest, I have always wanted to try this game, however the idea of having a buttload of henchmen, group-guys or whatever they are called put me off. Controlling several people in a real time combat situation did not interest me, however someone informed me, that though the battles might be realtime, you could pause the game easily and take your time finding what it is you want to use. I was also informed that I don’t exactly control the henchmen. This then got my interest in the game renewed!

I purchased the game, and now I have to force myself to quit playing. Granted, I am not very far along. I have barely finished the prelude, and quelled the prison riot. My last known location is outside the gates of a district over run with zombies. A freakin’ ZOMBIE invasion! That right there gives the game a spot in my heart. Looking forward to experiencing more of this game too!
