No, I'm Still Not Finished With That Video Game

I like video games, but I have a pretty short attention span when it comes to them. Because of this, it takes me FOREVER to make it all the way through a video game. The longest length of time? Two years! It's not like the games I play are extremely difficult, I seriously just cannot sit there and play for long enough periods of time to actually finish a game.

Take Pokemon, Blue Version for example. I have been playing that game for about four months now, and I still have not made it through the first cave in the game. Part of the reason is because I keep getting stuck. But mostly, it's because when I get stuck, I don't have the patience to sit there and figure out how to get un-stuck.

In fact, now that I think about it, I have only ever finished two video games completely:

Warioland 4 (Gameboy Advance)
Tetris PLUS (PS1)

Now this geek is disappointed in herself. :-(

*wanders off to play (and try to finish) Okami on the Wii*

What video games are you still trying to finish?

Sometimes, Coincidences Can Be Hilarious

There are times when I am checking my Facebook or Twitter, and two updates just happen to coincide with each other, with very funny outcomes. Here are a couple I have actually had the mind to capture. They make me giggle ever time I see them, haha.

This one was funny mostly because Heather (serenitymeimei) was super pissed, when (seemingly) the Dalai Lama comes waltzing in here, telling her to stop her negative thoughts. Something tells me that if he had an evil wisdom tooth he would be just as pissed, lol.

The most amusing this about this one? Both of these people know me, but do not know each other. Best coincidence ever, haha!

Who's On This Geek's Playlist? - October 2011

The Megas - Get... ACOUSTIC

My boyfriend found these Megaman covers online a while back by this band The Megas; first their electric guitar and vocal album, then their album of acoustic re-recordings, Get... ACOUSTIC. I have grown very fond of the acoustic covers, and they always seem to find their way onto any playlist I make. Here are a few of my favorites!

For more information on The Megas, go to their website: http://themegas.com

Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs, 56, Has Died

Steve Jobs passed away today  at age 56. Truthfully, I have never been a fan of Apple products,; to lie and say otherwise would be an insult to this man's memory. I can however tell you that I appreciate the many innovative ideas Jobs has made known to the technology world: The personal computer, the iPod, and the iPad. And of course there was Pixar, which he owned from 1986 to 2006. I wonder if we would have had Toy Story (one of my favorite movies) if he wouldn't have snapped Pixar up when he did. Who knows?

I do know that he will be missed by a lot of people... his family, his friends, and his many fans. His death leaves some big shoes to fill, and to tell you the truth, I don't think Apple will be the same without him.

If you would like to read more on this story, I suggest the write-up available on cnet.com.

RIP Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)

Warehouse 13 S3 Finale... Holy Crap! - No Spoilers, Promise!

It was EPIC. Period. It's pretty hard to put into any other words how I feel about last night's 2-hour finale episode of Warehouse 13. Then why the heck am I writing this blog entry? Mostly because my brain is still processing everything  that went on last night. I;m going to be good and not get into details for those of you who are still waiting to watch the finale. By the way, if you are one of those people... Watch it, damn it! Watch it now! Peer pressure!!!

Need some reasons to? Here they are!
  1. Someone Dies! Not telling you who though... Bwahahaha! 
  2. Big Secrets Revealed! You are correct, still not telling.
  3. Some MAJOR Game-changers! Besides somebody dying you ask? Yes!
Ok, if those reasons were not good enough, well then I'm not sure what else to say. Just know this: Even though this episode was very up and down emotionally for a lot of Warehouse 13 fans, I seriously think this has been one of the few times I was not disappointed by a season finale. This episode definitely lived up to the hype in the promos, which in my experience does not happen often. And because of this, among many other reasons, I am SERIOUSLY psyched for Season 4! Is it 2012 yet?

 Did you watch it? What did you think? Let me know!

Questions? Comments? Lets hear those too! I look forward to hearing from you! (^_^)
