My thoughts on...

Bacon and Lentil Soup: This is cruelty to animals. No pig deserves to be cooked with lentils!

My Personal Hell: Being locked in a padded cell made of Tofu.

Cyclists: My bicycle is too broken and it has a desire to murder me.

Dubstep: No change, still wubspam. Although, it did garner me some attention from some rather dashing ladies when I was dancing to it drunk. -.^

Top hats: He who buys me a top hat, will forever be awesome.

Skyrim: You wonder why I have been rather quiet lately?

Books: What? Where can I download those???

TV: You mean YouTube right?

Blu-ray: Shiny, pretty, high-definitiony! But meh, seriously, DVD is all good, I can't find the justification to make the transition yet, not at the cost.

Parker's Mind: What? What is this? Kidding! I haven't forgotten! I promise!

The Economy: There's always too much month at the end of my money.

Fan girls: What? Do I LOOK like Bakura to you? I don't HAVE fan girls!!! (Do I?)

Harry Potter: 'e's a wee bit of a tossa inn'e?

The new YouTube Layout: Meh, new home page is alright, not sure I like the new channels though.

Chateau Du Psymon

Ever since the latest Minecraft 1.8 update I've been very busy in creative mode, and I've built myself a mansion that is bigger than all of Chur Villiage combined. Screenshots below. Click for full size images.


The front, just as you enter the gate.


An aerial shot of the mansion.


Another shot of the front. I do wish Minecraft allowed me to construct big doors that worked.


The main foyer as you enter the front door.


And here we have a library.


And what kind of a mansion would be complete without an indoor pool?


And of course a pool must come with a sauna.


And of course food ain't gonna cook itself. So here we have the kitchen.


And somewhere to eat the food.


And of course one needs somewhere to store their fine wine.


And when one gets tired of a hard day of being rich, one can retreat to the master bedroom.


The land needs work, but here so far we have...


...a dock...


...and a mausoleum.


May they rest in peace.


And of course, the living room, with a nice big TV to watch all the good stuff on.

This is still a WIP. The main building and decorating is pretty much done, but I feel there's still a lot of work to be done in the yard.

5 Types of TV Shows that Need to Stop Being Made

TV is full of crap. So full of crap that there's no room for any of the good shows we actually want to see. Here's five types of shows that TV stations really need to stop airing, starting with:

#5 Fishing Shows

Now New Zealand doesn't have many free-to-air channels. Now there was a time during weekend day time television where channels one, two, and three were all airing fishing shows AT THE SAME FREAKING TIME! So to escape fishing show number one, you'd go to channel two... Wait, no they're fishing... So go to channel three, there must be somethi- oh wait no, they're fishing, with a twist though! They're doing it on the beach instead of a boat! If I honestly wanted to indulge of the long dullness of fishing, I'd buy a rod, hop on a boat and go do it myself!

#4 Bachelor/bachelorette Style Shows

One guy, twelve women, or vice versa, and they're all competing to win the heart of this one man or woman... That is, until they make the next season, in which he/she dumps the winner, and twelve new men/women fight over him...
What would make these shows interesting, is if the competitors were thrown on an island with weapons scattered all over, and they had to death match for the girl. Last man standing gets the girl. No men standing? Well then the girl misses out I guess. Best part is, you would only need one episode instead of an entire season!


It'll be a hit!

The trouble is, these shows aren't as awesome as that concept. It's all rinse and repeat of the same formula. I've lost count of how many varieties of these kind of shows exist. From Bachelor to Flava of Love, same thing, different douchebag, and frankly the competitors are just as lousy as the douche or douchette they're trying to score.

#3 Cooking Shows

Now don't get me wrong, I love food. Food is great! But I like to eat food, not watch people cook it on TV. Let's face it, it's boring! Sure, a lot of what they make looks scrumptious, but it also makes me hungry, and when I get hungry I go out and buy food. Wait... Cooking shows... Oh god! They're only there to make people hungry so they go buy food!!! Why didn't I see this connection before?!
Conspiracy theories aside, cooking shows are dull. When I want to learn how to cook a meal, I don't turn on the TV, I go to a cook book, or I Google the recipe.

#2 Home Rennovation Shows

I don't even know why these are on TV! Seriously! There's enough god damn construction sites around town, if I wanted to watch someone renovate their room, I'd go to their freaking house and grab a seat and some popcorn! But of course that would be weird, so it's a good thing I don't want to do that.
From observation, the formula goes something like this: Couple hates their room, production crew comes in to save the day, they start off designing, they start building, everything is going fine and dandy then uh-oh!!! Disaster strikes! Something fucks up and the couple get bitchy and then they go over budget, then the ad break comes, show returns, and the room is all pretty and finished and the show's host discusses with the couple about how the renovating went without a hitch and they were only slightly over budget. Behind the scenes, I'm sure they still hate the room.

#1 Survivor

Now this show I swear is the reason why we never have any good shows! I never understood why people watch this crap. Oh wait, people like watching people bitch at each other and back stab and create all sorts of drama, and that's all this show was to me, a whole bunch of bitching and back stabbing and maybe a little bit of competiton...
...to see who could bitch the loudest. Let's see them survive this:

There's over 22 seasons of this show, and that's just the American version! This show passed its use-by date before the first season was even aired. I think it's time they gave it up and left room for some shows that actually deserve the air time, and stop cancelling the good ones!!!

BREAKING NEWS! CooLville bombed in an act of revenge!

About 48 hours ago, the city of CooLville was bombarded from orbit by the Empire of Psymon. It is suspected that the bombings were masterminded by the empire of Psymon, in response to CooL's recent bombings of the Psymonic embassy located near by. The bombings lasted three days and has destroyed most of the infrastructure and buildings. It is estimated that a total of 4,000,000 people perished in the bombings, while the remaining 1,000,000 or so are seeking refuge where they can.
Emperor Psymon then broadcast to the nation of CooL that he is declaring war. CooL has yet to respond.

MEIN CASTLE!!!!

So this has been my latest Minecraft project. A castle. And I am not building it with hax, I am building it properly. I'm going out, mining the crap out of stone, coming back, smelting it, placing the blocks, rinse and repeat. It's going along nicely, but still has a long way to go!
It's been a chore and a half though. Digging out all the sand dunes to make room, marking out where the walls go etc etc. But now, let us indulge in W.I.P shots!
As always, click the images for their full size.


The early stages of building the walls.


The front of the wall, just after completing the first two towers.


View of Chur Villiage from a tower.


Inside a tower.


Early stages of building the castle, walls complete.


Front of the castle, only part that's mostly complete.

As you can see, I still have a long way to go, but I am looking forward to showcasing the finished castle, complete with underground dungeon soon.

The Nerve of Some People...

So about 40 minutes ago just before finishing work, the car park was a bit full and people were getting a bit grumpy. So while walking through it I stopped by a blocked off car park to keep out of the way, when this cu(nt)stomer pulled in to that park right where I was standing, barely leaving me enough time to leap out of the way. To be honest I should have let him hit me, because then he'd have gotten into lots of trouble for his lousy and aggressive driving. I know busy car parks can be frustrating but behavior like that is completely uncalled for. I am tempted to reveal the name of the company that the customer represents, but I am going to show some restraint at this point.
