My Janurary

Hi. Yes, I’m alive. Happy New Year, one month late. I like 2013 so far. Much more peaceful than 2012. Oh, sure, the Fench went after extremists in Mali, and there was yet another shooting–honestly, it’s starting to get ridiculous–but that’s about it so far.

My gaming blog is doing well. Found a couple games, one back in November, the other this month:

*Kerbal Space Program: Basically, NASA Tycoon. You build rockets and fly them. It’s still in development, and they plan to have money, resources and all sorts of other stuff by the end. It costs exactly $23 right now, a price which will rise once per major update, so the sooner you get it, the more value in the long run. Here: https://www.kerbalspaceprogram.com/

*Democracy 2: A political simulator where you try to win reelection as the prime minister or president of either one of the fictional countries or the USA. Not for everyone, but political buffs like myself will probably enjoy. It costs a little less than $20. Here: http://www.positech.co.uk/democracy2/

Also found another blog called “Wrong Universe”. The writer can be a little bitter sometimes, but he’s lonely. He could probably use the views: http://sorrywv.wordpress.com/

Finally, mom just told me that some lady in Detroit has an addiction to her cats fur. As in, she actually licks her cat. My god, my god, why have you forsaken America?

Signing out for now.

 

What Happened To The Star Wars That I Used To Know?

This is a parody of “Somebody That I Used To Know”, a popular pop song.

Now I was born in the new Star Wars generation, so the only thing I really have cringes about is Jar Jar, but I still get all the jokes. Is that a sign of Star Wars addiction?

“Yes, Nathan. Yes it is.”

The lyrics:

[DARTH:]
Now and then I think of when I was in power
Like choking people with the Force until they died
But then you told them all my history
And took away my masculinity
And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.

You are now addicted to an overuse of graphics
And making Greedo shoot first? Han shot first.
So when you tried to have the Force make sense
You introduced the midichlorians
And what’s the deal with having me be dubbed over (Noooooooooo!)

But you didn’t have to change it all.
Make ’em like they never happened and the fans are nothing
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a Bantha and that feels so rough
No you didn’t have to make them blow
Have your friends direct your movies and they’ll turn out better.
You think that you don’t need them though
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[GEORGE LUCAS:]
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over.
I had them believing that the first three films were really done.
But Star Wars will be done my way
I don’t care what you have to say
I think that they should let it go
And they’ll never get the Blu-Ray of the Star Wars that you used to know

[DARTH:]
You didn’t have to change it all.
No more puppets, no more practical effects or nothin’
I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a wampa and that feels so cold.
No you didn’t have to sell your soul
Do we really need to watch them all again in 3D?
Jar Jar was an all time low
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

[x2]
The movies
(I used to know)
The movies
(What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know)

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)
(That I used to know)

Sick Today

I randomly got a cold. It’s nothing serious, but it sure is annoying.

I. Hate. Sneezing. So there.

Now, I know what some of you are saying. “Quit whining and have some chicken soup!” But this is coming from a guy that:

1.Has a nearly infallible immune system. This is the first time I’ve had a cold in a couple years.

2.Hates chicken soup. In fact, unless it’s a chicken nugget, I hate chicken.

3.Is extremely whiny. I tend to complain about every little problem in the world.

4.Is somewhat  paranoid. “Do I have the flu? Some new, incurable disease?” (great, now I’m also annoyed at myself)

So, please bear with me. I’m going to have a long day, and I’m complaining about it on my blog. So there. End post. You may continue your day.

Strawberry Festival

Just came home from the Strawberry Festival. Every year, it rains.

Guess what happened this year?

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!?!

We didn’t even get to ride the rides this year. At one point, I got so bored that I pondered the relationship between Lady Liberty and Lady Justice.

I couldn’t even find a good picture.

I guess I shouldn’t complain. After all, I DID get a huge container of french fries and some world famous strawberry shortcake. Oh, and a free bowling game. That was pretty cool.

“Hey, check out my technique!”

If you’ll excuse me, I need to make up  for the bummer day by net surfing and playing computer games.

Test of a Chatbot

Today, I discovered A.L.I.C.E., a very smart chatbot. So I deiced to test it. This was the order of things:

Part 1: get it to acknowledge it is a robot

Part 2: engage in small talk

Part 3: give it a simple IQ test

Part 4: see if it recognizes puns

Part 5: talk about god and the meaning of life

Part 6: ask it the most confusing question I could think of and see how it responds

It’s final score was 8-kind of pathetic. I told it to try again in 5 years, when it is more intelligent.

Rain, me, and plans

Hello. I am Nathan(the Jedi Master, remember that) and this is my blog. Well, that’s a rather cliche start, but it is a start nether the less. I used to have a blog called “Nate Notes”, but it soon became horrid and I gave up. I am now starting a private blog(this one) and pretty much plan to write about anything and everything.

As for the events of the day, I went to play outside but then it started to rain. Yeah. That’s Ohio for you.  We have a swear money system for my parents(you give money every time you cuss, except when I’m felling generous) and I’m thinking of using the money I’ve collected to buy a slushie. Then again, I might want to hoard it in case the system is too successful and everyone stops cussing. I’m not sure yet.

Anyway, I have plans to have a Star Wars marathon when I get the Blu-Ray boxed set. I might even kick it up a notch and also watch The Clone Wars. I’ll definitely blog about it when it happens.

No, I’m not going to blog every day(considering my laziness, that would acutely be kind of scary), but I will blog when I fell like it. Whoa, 204 words and I’m not even done with the post! That kinda gives me a felling of superiority.
