This is cute!

Reminds me of the days when my family's now old and senile long-haired chihuahua was a puppy and we used to tease him by driving remote-controlled cars and a little robot toy I used to have (probably still do). Being the cowardly little shit he was he would bark like mad at this seemingly nasty threat and running around in that pouncing position wagging his tail. Good times...

To the Irish I think I love you!

This is from an old Irish TV comedy called "Father Ted" about three Catholic priests stuck on an island with all their problems, vices, and personalities. It's funny as hell because one of them is an old Irishman who says "feck" as a more polite substitute for "fuck" all of the time and I found a YouTube video of him saying it. You Irish kick ass!

Here is the fecking video!

Let me ask a question

How in the holy living hell do you embed videos. I remember someone telling me that I have to use BBCode instead of HTML but despite me knowing how to do some basic BBCode I can't find the proper command to get embedding YouTube videos going. Any help?   read

I'm trying my own game idea...

Ever since about early 2005 I've worked on and off with this MS Word document containing all my ideas for a dream game I want made. The premise of it is supposed to be a combination of superhero action without a goofy wear-underpants-on-the-outside sort of tone, being a little more serious and indepth than that with all sorts of personal beliefs, humor, and attitude built into it including content from my previous blog post. I plan on having a total of 30 to 40 characters in there of which I've already created 7 concept drawings. Too bad I'm a shitty drawer. When I finish doing this, I swear that I'll create something which I will be satisfied with. I always dreamed of doing this. In the future perhaps I'll post some of my work, who knows?   read

My ideal utopian paradise...

Is one of anarchism, where people get along and government isn't there to bumfuck everyone else to serve their own agenda. As I look at it, having no government would help solve problems with various financial and cultural problems a society has as a lot of it is due to the insufficiencies that lazy politicians lay forth and the privilege and high status given to those who are of a significant level of control as versus to the rest which are citizens just like them, no better and no worse.

This isn't to say that some order should be allowed as any other way would allow crime to run rampant and the necessary services we need to live might be hard to establish, in which case I think a mutually agreed system of crime control and tax system could take place, instead of an elite few choosing how it's done allowing for the balance of power and fairness to be shifted. I swear that even though this country is supposed to have a system of checks and balances, the rich got the edge. Money equals power. I don't really like a few things about capitalism, but that is another story.

Government can also in a lot ways foster laziness as when a person relies on a politician, meaning someone else to do it for them, there's increasingly less reason to do it for themselves. As just one example, I hear numerous complaints by video game players that it's not the governments job to censor or limit games as it, not only violates First Amendment rights, but also because it's the parent's job to get off their fucking ass and take the evil unholy demon spawn from hell known as Grand Theft Auto out of their little brats hands. But parents these days more and more seem to not want to do their job as a parent, but still want their kids to behave and turn out right instead allowing the government to help try and play nanny. A matter of wanting all the result with little work involved. Now I know it is true that parents have a hell of a responsibility, even more so as the world continues to be a complex place to live in so they might need a little help. But sometimes I swear that the parents aren't taking enough of their fare share. If you rely on them too much, you eventually lose IMO a little of the personal control and in turn, you could be bumfucking yourself.

Now I just thought that this was a good idea to post this as it would be little change of pace, which is good every now and then, but if anyone doesn't like my views then that is your right, I just don't trust government and a lot of authority. Not to say I don't like democracy, because I do. Electing leaders before they become a bumfucker, but being able to vote them out or boo them for the rest of their career if they start to show aspects of bumfuckery is a cool thing to have. But I still remain an unceasing skeptic of government, authority, and the agendas of the elite.   read

TF2 update!

I tried this morning to get my custom tag up, but to no success but found out the custom tag thing for TF2 was broken and found a tip on doing it in HL2D and copied the necessary folder over into TF2 as a substitute. Worked like a charm! So I got that damn album cover as my tag now.

By the way, CaffeinePowered is a sneaky son of a bitch! Like taking a Heavy and pounding down an incline at an enemy spawnpoint in the Gravelpit and repeatedly stabbing me in the back with a Spy. Well I took an alternate exit a couple of times to shoot him in the head from the side while he didn't suspect a thing, in the former, and finally nailing him near the end of a round despite his attempt to cloak, in the latter. I'm wising up to you!

By the way, is there an official Dtoid clan?   read

My Team Fortress 2 (PC) experience...

I'm not a big online gamer to tell you the truth, but as of as early '06 I've been giving it a bigger and bigger try, starting with UT2k4 and working into some free MMOs, but as of yesterday, I'm a TF2 player. All I can say is fucking incredible! The game is a good team based online FPS, but avoids the dead serious tone of a lot of FPS titles which suits me just fine. I'll probably be online tomorrow, so be ready! Just look for OldschoolVgamer and you'll find me!

But what about my experience thus far? Utilizing my Logitech headset for online gaming for the first time today, I've gave messages to other players telling them what to look out for and what help I need. For me this is a new thing, I've never done it before, but I can't say that I hate it.

Some obnoxiousness has been going on in the Dtoid server with people spouting childish voice messages, one guy using the Demoman kept pressing a command asking for more teleporters and wouldn't shut the hell up, and some guy was cranking Will Smith's "Wild Wild West" through voice chat. Who was that guy?

By the way, I'm trying to come upon what my custom tag should look like. OK, does Valve have any policies about using copyrighted material for them? If not then my ideas are:

1) Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" album cover ala my avatar here
2) A picture of iconic 80's TV character MacGuyver 'cause he's fucking cool
3) Carl, the fat slob neighbor on Aqua Teen Hunger Force
4) Some of the characters from the cartoon The Boondocks
5) Stewie or Quagmire from Family Guy   read
