Winona Ryder doesn’t know who You Are

Not to be a total dick or anything (not that I’ve never not one been one before), BUT Winona Ryder (if it’s really her), is on the Twitter, and she doesn’t know how to use “you’re.”

*Sigh*

I don’t know why this kind of thing bothers me, but it does.

It’s probably my own hang up and I should get over it, but aye….

Anyhow, I showed this to my bf, and he was all, “She didn’t go to school babe, leave her alone.”

But…but she was in Beetlejuice.

If that’s not enough education, I don’t know what is.

The games we played (well I did anyway)

If you’re not careful, video games like old (or former) friends can turn into permanent dents in your soul and pocketbook.

How so?

Well, (taking a deep breath) both required time and energy (sometimes both in high doses), both brought you joy or humiliation (unless you got the higher score), both caused strain to your eyes(oh those colors, those fashions), both left you with hideous calluses (either on fingers,your mind and or heart, or all at once–competitiveness is never pretty), all of which had a knack for showing up when you least expect them to (such is fancy of favors or bail money).

Roll that all up and hit the save button and PRESTO, it’s you…Okay, well a kind of extent in the making of the very person you are today.

Hey people have been blaming video games for a while now, right?

What brought all this on?

Well, just this morning, a breeze swept into my senses in a a kind of Proustian Rush.

It was an aroma that I can only describe as a mix of new plastics, Fruity Pebbles and Johnson & Johnson’s No More Tangles spray. Well, I hope it was a kind of freak breeze caused by pollution and not a symptom of a stroke.

It was the scent of my youth, the sent of Nintendo Power/Prowess? Rarrwrr…

I couldn’t help but breath in that moment and sigh a kind of melencholic sigh…the kind of sigh that cues harp music and a cheesy 80’s dream effect sequence.

Rather than, full on flashback scene though, where you see me as a child in dated clothes I could easily blame on Wayne’s World…the picture would be simpler.

The picture would be one where : thoughts about video games played and missed.

Games that made no sense. Games I used to freak friends out with (friends who had appreciated Monty Python and poop rain). A game like:

Sega CD’s “Panic!”

God, I loved my Sega CD. Yep I was that one kid you knew with the Sega CD and 32x attachment. My Genesis was a collection of attachments. An almost living thing that provided me with hours of fun and wonder.

In a way it was an stage in life that taught me how to “accessorize.”

Seasons changed and people began to lose touch with Sonic and decided to ignore the amazing Dreamcast for dreams of Sony.

Enter the Playstation.

Ever the rebel to whatever my peers where into, I did not fall prey to the purchase of the then new new fancy fandangled Playstation (or as the kids vaguely remember them and refer to them now as ps1). I don’t know if it was my adamant stance on Nintendo 64 being the best console (hello ZELDA Ocarina of Time!!!), or that it was an excuse to “borrow” or “hang out” with my then crush.

After all, wasn’t it mostly boy type games on the Playstation initially?

It could’ve also been that the console was beyond my budget (always the cheapskate) along with the chance to try out geek wooing phrases like, “Why don’t you bring your Playstation to my place?” or “loser pays the game rental fee.” etc…

Years later, I’d learn such tactics didn’t work so great, and decided I’d have to upgrade, bite the bullet and purchase a Ps2 (another time another story we don’t need to get into just now).

But I digress…One Playstation game, that still haunts and intrigues me

Sony Playstation’s “Incredible Crisis”

Grandma’s, Bank Robbers, UFO’s and ska music…what more could a budding adolescent want for a game? Hell, why don’t I have this game right now on the Ps3?!!

Lastly and certainly not leastly, a game that tapped right into the very things I’m still wholeheartedly STILL into.

Super Nintendo’s “Mario Paint”

Not only could I draw all kinds of doodles on the TELEVISION, animate said doodles (training for my later years of drawing with a mouse on a computer) but I could compose songs too. Every band geek’s dream really–turning popular music into Midi files that would put many cell phones of yesteryear to shame.

Because I don’t have recordings handy of the stuff I did then (probably songs off MTV’s 120 min lineup), we’ll make do with this:

Yes, those were the days my friend.

You are missed, but not forgotten…and should I ever better organized our storage room, I’ll find these relics and play once more…(god knows I wont bother with the Ebay, I still have my cheap standards to uphold).

It’s Boten frickin’ time!

Weeks ago if you had simply sent me an email with the subject: BassHunter

I would have probably first thought of this:

bass-fishing.jpg

I’d be really stoked about it too, because if there ever were an activity in video game form I loved more is that of fishing up some sweet bass. Yeah, that’s how cool I am.

If I paid even little attention to the content followed by the subject of said hypothetical e-mail, and then ran across words like: “Music,” or “sounds like…”

My brain would have probably conjured up something that looked more like this:

sting-the-bass-hunter.jpg

(It has to be Sting too, because 1) I couldn’t find a picture of Ted Nudgent holding a Bass. and 2) Yes, Ted hunts, but his ax of choice is for Cat Scratchin’ Fever)

Okay, enough don’t make fun of my illiteracy or mispronunciations…if anything it’s just more proof of my ungeek/un nerdliness.
Cool and popular people make up all kinds of words all the time.

Imagination is all part of the cool artistic mind, so yeah, these are the things I’d have to imagine because the concept of a Scandinavian cyber-geek composing a song about meeting a girl on the internet is beyond my realm of comprehension.

The idea of chat rooms, robots, Swedish music (outselling the likes of Abba) is absolutely foreign to me.

I’ve never lost an hour or so on, I mean I’ve never even heard of Ventrilo…pfft whatever it is.

venting-ventrilo.jpg

I’m saving us all the trouble of going to that level of thinking by posting the BassHunter videos.

I have to, because you like me probably have no clue about these kinds of things either, right?

Basshunter:

Defence of the Ancients, er what?

DotA? :

Yep, I’m so cool it took us this long to post about a song that made the Eurodance charts in 2006. We’re not a blog preoccupied with the times. 😉

Well I got cool stuff to get to.

Putting the ODD in Odyssey

blog-of-bones.jpg

If a blog hasn’t posted, is it still a blog?

If a blog hasn’t been read, is it still worth reading?

If a blog has a blogger who has a few moments to kill, then this is what probably what did it in.

Our friend and fellow Nerd’s blog seems to have taken a trip to 2001, feel free to read it while we get our monkeys outta the barrel.

Blinded by Science

41-hilarious-science-fair-experiments.jpg

Hypothesis:

Posing with science projects will never help you score.

Control:

No cool kids are seen in the following website.

Conclusion:

It’s cool to laugh at photos of those poor lonely science fair participants.

To look upon the photos of students and their Science Projects is to look at God’s sense of humor and well find out what a cruel and vengeful god he can be.

Of course, if you’re a person of science, you’ll look at this and thank god no one decided to add your photo to the collection.

Have a look for yourself and you’ll know just what we mean.

Not to brag or anything, but we won a few first prizes in our old science fair days… the photographic evidence however was spared the fame/ridicule of this website (this time anyway).

Don’t judge us! It was a time for experimenting!

Hey I was young! I needed the trophies!!!

Packing up my bags…

Less than 2 weeks into my co-authoring job here at The Nerd of Her facilities and I am already taking a week-long vacation! WOO! (Does a silly dance.)

The Boss has agreed to the time off.  I am still waiting for my first paycheck to clear.  Correlation? AHEM!

beach

As I enjoy my time off at some beach or whatever Manila has to offer, I am more than sure that The Nerd of Her presses will be churning out some great reading material for you to scour.

Crikey..I am thinking will the Chibbi even missed?

Don’t hesitate! Don’t run off to shed a tear or two! I will be back!

So I dare say: Ciao! Adios! Check you later! I’m outie! Peace!

Smooches…
