New haps, I've been concerned recently with circulation problems. Since I started the heavy weightlifting, I frequently get pins and needles all over my arms when I lay down in certain positions or when I press my elbows down on my legs or any other surface for a short while, generally under 3 minutes. I'm mildly scared of what may be the reason, as I've been asking some of the people who lift regularly at my gym, and most of them say it's an enflamed nerve...which I don't buy. I don't really want to go see a doctor because I know if I go, I can guarantee a fucking shitton of problems they'll tell me I need to address, to give up the weight lifting, and probably have me start taking medication for some shit I probably have and never dealt with, like diabetes (both parents have/had it, many family members have it). Personally, I could give a fuck if it's not gonna kill me, and if I can deal with it as I am right now, I don't care to address it. I blame alot of the discomfort I feel daily on my fucking broken ass mattress, which is shaped at an obtuse angle so my ass recedes fairly deep while sleeping, and I'm too broke/cheap to buy a new mattress.

On the plus side, I pulled up 300lbs on a t-bar row yesterday, which is 6 plates +bar weight. Sadly, rep 4 resulted in said weight dropping when I went to return it to its rest. I tried doing it on a standard olympic bar, but for those of you familiar with the t-bar row exercise, having 200+ lbs at one end and nothing at the other makes it very difficult to lift up without the other side flying up and clocking you in the penis. Had to use the machine which is way harder for less effect. Still, that's a pretty awesome number.

Dead as in Ylod, or dead as in hammer to the system whilst playing that freaky song from little big planet dead?

Better clarity means you'll hear the shitty quality, kinda like playing an old ps1 game on a ps3, them pixels look sssoooooo clear.

Best part about all of his topics is how he makes 1-2 posts and never returns...

So, I'm at work now putting drivers on a USB stick.

Windows doesn't detect the network adapter (aka Internet) nor the DVD drive. Which means tough luck installing any drivers to make anything work.
I have no idea how anyone is supposed to config a new computer WITHOUT another working computer. It just seems impossible.
Cell phone, dude.

Well Klyde, I do have a roughed out idea of the tattoo I want, though only a verbal description. I wanted to make a greatsword and scythe sort of overlap over and sit underneath a helmet of the Dark Knight from FFXI, almost like a skull and crossbones motiff. The specific helmet would be the Bale Burgeonet, and the greatsword would be the ragnarok and scythe would be either a more grey and black version of the apocalypse, or my own weapon the Ogresse. It's sort of my thing, Dark Knight, as I enjoy the idea of extreme strength and putting everything you have into an attack, the proverbial "one hitter-quitter". If I can find a way to show the image of what I mean, I'll post it up here.

In other news, 305 BENCH PRESS OMFG I BROKE THE 300 MARK!!!!!!!

This has pleased me.

Klyde, when I finally hit that massive lotto jackpot I secretly yearn to win, I am so getting my tattoo done by you.

I thought japanese games generally released at like 5200 yen, or maybe 6800, been a while since I really looked at prices for games I couldn't play in a currency I didn't make.

Even here, when I write about it here, I know most of you don't really give a damn, and I'm honestly just stroking my own ego, but I can't stop doing it anyway. I feel a need to talk about it, but know I shouldn't really. Basically, I'm sorry for always bragging about my feats, especially if it comes off as bragging. I'll try to cut back on it some...

Dude in terms of posting stuff that nobody cares about, you're never going to beat me :P
Well, I always pegged your ramblings as simply humorous anecdotes more or less, a joke about real events. Plus, you're random about what you write, so it always comes off as something new. My shit's getting tires, I feel.

I left my earphones home today when I went to the gym, which resulted in me skipping cardio today, cuz 15 minutes of staring at a timer without music is terrible, especially if you're trying to maintain 18-19 mph om a bike.

Curling 135lbs on the preacher bar now, which is fairly badass. One of the regulars who's really built up stopped for a second and said dude...your fucking arm is gigantic. I'm fairly pleased by this, and spent the rest of my night pushing harder for it. Ended up doing 8 full exercises, 4 bicep 4 tricep.

Gonna go sort of serious for a minute. You know how whenever you do something or talk about something that you're really comfortable with, it's easy to go on and on about it? I'm getting that with the weight lifting now, it's getting hard not to wanna bring it up in conversations, and even harder not to talk about my progress (brag is probably appropriate here). Even here, when I write about it here, I know most of you don't really give a damn, and I'm honestly just stroking my own ego, but I can't stop doing it anyway. I feel a need to talk about it, but know I shouldn't really. Basically, I'm sorry for always bragging about my feats, especially if it comes off as bragging. I'll try to cut back on it some...

First collector Edition I will buy
Why did you color Terra black for an avatar? I sad face at this....Terra is so awesome

I don't know if I'll be buying this collectors edition, as the metal gear 150 dollar box of omgwtf still pisses me off. Shame, cuz that Milla figure would go great with my Batman figure from DCU Online.

Mesh, what do mean by echoeyness? I've listened to a large number of headphones, and any echo-type noise was generally a result of an improperly mixed track or someone playing with a pre-amp poorly. Do you have any other devices or anything between your headphones and media device, or perhaps an extended audio cable (though I doubt even if you did that you're using a digital signal which could be affected by distance). If you're using something like winamp or another music program on pc with a pre-amp control, try tweaking it (or untweaking it if you've adjusted it). There's a lot of variables I'm unaware of so I can't give any solid suggestions, I just know that if you're getting a serious echo in the phones, it may not be the phone itself but the source itself or the source material.

I tried to take that article seriously, Dice, but the clown who wrote it obviously doesn't speak english well. It made for a very shitty read.

I'd love to play a more metroid-style Mega Man X game, with armor pods acting as save points, weapon energy replacing missiles, dash  for speed boost, ride armor able to be used in most areas for terrain traversal and modification....you guys get the idea. I do realize it'd basically just be metroid with a blue male samus, but hey, it sounds cool in my head.

As for that FPS X that will never happen, my only dislike about it looking at it was the silly disarming opponents. The rapid fire buster looked cool, the overall look was sleek, you could easily see the armor integration in weapon variations and movement upgrades like sprinting and double jumping. Honestly, it'd probably be similar to metroid prime as well, but this isn't really a negative.

All this mega talk is making me wanna go back to an old X game or maybe legends. God this series had some real shiners.

It's idiotic to think that paying the fee for use overseas wouldn't carry over here. But hey, asshole business is assholish.

Whatever happened to the idea of free endorsements? I mean, if I saw a pepsi bottle in Tales of Vesperia, wouldn't it be a solid means of bringing pepsi more business? How come Namco has to pay a comapny to basically spread the word about their characters, creations, etc? I'd be stoked if they came forward and asked to use my likeness in Xillia for even a dumbass character, and I know if Jude had a Robin costume in game, it'd make some more DC fans out of people.

Speaking of DC....Wonder Woman costume for Milla.....oooohhhh
