I haven’t posted anything here for so long that I feel guilty. I really should post here, otherwise my somewhat lacking literary skills will diminish and die altogether. I will come back. I swear. It’s almost as though I’m the reformed alcoholic father coming back after all this time to wish you a happy birthday. I’m a terrible person. I know. Forgive me.

 

P.s. I’ll probably change my tag/name/username to Swifty. Just cos I’m cool like that.

Tech Review: UltimateEars MetroFi 220 August 16, 2010

So yeah, I got these new earphones the other day, to replace my somewhat worn and aged UltimateEars MetroFi100

They're sexy, no?

They're so sexy so clean, the baddest 'phones for me, I'm wondering why I only see them in my dreams.

And yes, it seems like I like this brand a lot, but i’ve had numerous earphones, so I know what it’s like to have dodgy earphones.

I guess I’ll compare them to SkullCandy (can’t remember which model, but they’re for around half the price of the MF-220’s and the same price as the MF-100’s); the standard iPod earphones; the MF-100’s; Sony MDR-EX85LP. Specifications are at the bottom of the post

Reiteration of Something You Use To Do. July 17, 2010

Yes, I’m writing a post. Yes, I know its been, like, forever. Yes, I know, I’m sorry for being gone for so long. A thousand apologies, our fine, fine readers.

As you know, I’m an avid fan of the sort of entertainment that flows through speakers and into our eardrums. And I know what you’re thinking. “Stop watching porn.”, but I can assure you that’s not the entertainment I am talking about. I’m talking about music, and only recently, have I been so goddamn attached to it again. I don’t mean like, if I don’t listen to it I’ll die. No no no. Nothing of the kind. More the appreciation for one’s blood, sweat and tears meaning a lot to a lot of people.

Youlike?

Gotta love it.

Live performances as compared to Studio recordings by every artist – This one’s a serious post. April 21, 2010

Lol, yeah. Somewhat serious.

Anyway, the basic thing is this. I’ve noticed, and been a part of before, the crowd that seems to build when someone performs on stage, be they a band or a solo artist. However, a more notorious crowd is known as the internet. The internet is the essentially the world’s rumour mill collaborated with narrow-minded individuals who are not accepting of change, facts, of quite simply, other people’s ideas. As a few of you will probably know, I use to be an avid Linkin Park fan, which I still am, but to a lesser extent. And before that, it was Green Day. Now, its Taylor Swift (Yes, I’ve somewhat talked about her before, but shut up and let me finish). Yes, so she went of tune in her performance at the Grammy’s, but does that make her any less of an artist? I mean, I like Sum 41, and a great many of the songs. From The Hell Song to Walking Disaster, either way, they are some of the best. But, in all the videos that I’ve watched, I must admit that they are somewhat mediocre at live performances. So far, the only live performance I’ve enjoyed in regard to them was a performance of Pieces in Germany, I think. But that doesn’t make me think any less of them. It’s not necessary the way they sound, but more what they’re saying.

Expecting something less when recieving something more April 17, 2010

Yesterday I watched a flick known universally as ‘Kick Ass’ and quite frankly, I was surprised. For everything it seemed it would do, it didn’t. It did better. No, in fact, more than better. It delivered in a level never seen before with a film that is supposed to. Now, I’m not saying it was the best movie I have ever seen, though it does belong in the group ‘Fantastic-Movie-I-Would-Pay-For’. And trust me, its pretty ****in’ hard to get there.

This is what I expected it to be

I'm gonna stick my shoe in your anus!

So, a few days ago, myself, Deft and a couple other of friends from our school went on a jolly trip around our city, the beloved land, Sydney.

Yes, I’m a Commie bastard, but what can I say? I’m joking. I’m as far from Communism as Judaism can be.

I’m sorry, I’ll stop being so … anti-culturalistic. Wait, communism isn’t a culture…

AH, I’m off topic!

On topic!

So, we went to the city. Yes, yes we did. I’ll say, it was rather interesting. It was fun, and awesome, and fun. Strangely enough, we managed to spend a good 12 hours together doing God-knows-what. However, we must all agree that the highlight of the night was Alan eating Wasabi.

Boy, was it hilarious.

The real shit.

So, today, myself and Deft were notified by our very ‘wonderful’ teacher that she would be leaving us to go to another school. Normally, I wouldn’t fret at such a notion, as I would believe myself to have done a job well done. It’s just to be that teachers hate our Glorious School, with a Gloriously fake-tanned-father-of-former-student-at-my-primary-school Principal, and should by all means, escape in any way, shape or form, in an effort to preserve what is left of their mediocore lives

Fake tans, gotta tan 'em all !

So, here I am, when I should really be typing my Physics report. Which I have finished, by the way.
So, how are we all today?
I’m just here to discuss something close to my heart. Random grenade spamming. I’m really joking, as it doesn’t worry me at all.

I like being older than you, but really, I’m not. October 27, 2009

I know this topic may offend some, in particular Deft, but I assure you, it’s not directed at you.

Ah, the subtleties of acting older than your age, in an effort to make yourself appeal to people older than you, or perhaps one of our other writers, or ex-writer.

I like your face. Like, really. October 2, 2009

A couple of days ago, I had a wonderful chat with a dear friend of mine. It really was wonderful, but the problem was, he felt rather angry. He was angry at himself, this dude, and everyone else.

But the reason for him being angry was because he hated how every human on this planet seems to have two faces. I know what he means. I get sick of faces too.

But faces are what we need. We need a mask to hide behind, a mask to wear when we’re scared and a mask to wear when we’re no longer afraid. It’s just who we are.
But my problem with faces is this; some people have far too many.
For example, one person I know, but shall not name, has so many facets, it’s hard to keep up. He gets on everyone’s nerves for this reason. All he does is lie to our faces.

But faces are quite nice, so I shall still say faces are what we are.
