    Happy Holidays to you all. I don't blog too much but I've had the urge to ask for help for this Dtoider for a while. He's been around for a long time, probably gamed with some of you. But, I doubt most of you know of his situation.

    Now I've known this for about a year, and in that time I've sent what little money I could and as many games as I could because believe it or not gaming helps take his mind of his situation. Ramen is a luxury sometimes for this man, I wish I was exaggerating. 

    And don't get me wrong, he's tried to get his situation resolved. Due to his condition he couldn't even work a part time job at Wal-Mart. He was finally able to see a doctor by getting into a group that sponsors doctors visits for the needy, but the doctor he got doesn't believe his condition is that bad and won't recommend him for disability(even though it's a covered illness on the disability website). She gave him antibiotics, not even pain meds, and it's known antibiotics do nothing for this condition.

    I'm sure some of you are wanting a name by now, and I'm sorry to say he wishes to remain anonymous, which is why it's wrecked my brain figuring out a way to set up something with donations for him. So my pledge to all who donate(money,games,food,etc) is I will document every donation and show you that it was sent to this dtoider. I will be using my personal PayPal(he doesn't have a bank account to even set up PayPal) and will show every transaction. If the donations get big enough I will open a separate account just for this at my local Credit Union(almost zero fees that way). 

    I know it's a lot to ask for help around Christmas, but this dude hasn't had one in years. I sent him a couple of games and will try to send some money, but I'd like to make it a good one for him. I'm hoping to raise enough so he can afford a real doctor for a second opinion and hopefully get on disability. Google(images too) the disease and you will see why the need for anonymity and the reason work is hard to come by. 

    My Paypal:

    My Personal Email for food/game donations(so you can get an address)

    Thanks in advance to all those who can help.

    Yeah, we roll in them doodies. We mostly hang on the forums but we're always looking for more people to play with. There is nothing like going into pubs with most of the lobby being your friends. If you like friendly competition, brotherhood and sisterhood, and shitting on other teams because we roll deep join us!

    Black Ops 2 Thread:

    Some other hijinks we've participated in:

    Excuse me while I rant, unedited and not pre-written as I had planned to for months now on the subject.

    My COD emblem

    I'm a Christian. Probably not a good one among my peers but it is what it is. This gay marriage issue is something I side with gay people on based on two fronts:

    1.Political: We as Christians/Conservatives whatever you want to label it have allowed the shadiest of people to represent us based on opposing social issues like gay marriage. People who swindle us with promises of not letting traditional marriage die while using that morality as a cover to further drive our country over the edge and bankrupt it. I want gay marriage to pass because in the grand scheme of things it is an issue that should have never been one. With all of the things wrong in society that so desperately deserve our attention this issue should be passed in favor of gay marriage so we can start focusing on the more important things like economy. These social issues which honestly the government has little business being involved in anyway dominate most of our discussion, and it's a giant waste of time much akin to the Congressional panel on steroids in baseball. It is a non-issue turned into something huge in this bizarro reality we inhabit today. Let the gays have marriage rights. I am personally sick of something so personal being micromanaged by political agendas and being used to keep a great deal of us tied to failed politics.

    2.Religious: I feel that my relationship with God/Jesus is a personal one. One for me. That does not extend to those outside of me. As such, I don't feel our traditions and personal laws, though basis for some of our current laws, should be forced on others. I fully understand a church not wanting to wed same-sex couples, and I have no problem with that. But beyond that, there shouldn't be a beyond that. Allow me to be blasphemous for a moment but I don't believe gays are just going to end up in hell. I could be wrong, but regardless that is a personal decision between that person and their beliefs. Who are we as Christians to demand that they honor our ways? Do you really believe there will be special rewards in heaven for all who stopped some D's going into so A's from getting married? I also do not feel that Jesus would have liked his beliefs being used to deny rights of others on a legal scale in the form of government. Yes, under our religion homosexuality is frowned upon and outright shunned, but that is OUR RELIGION. Not law of the land unless you choose it be for yourself.

    /rant. Apologies if anyone is offended, by content or just bad unplanned writing. This is an oversimplified version of an essay I've had in my head for a long time now. <3

    I want to post in the Super Street Fighter 4 thread about Gears. Then get trolled by Bloo.

    I want to post in the Bar about how drunk I got finishing off a bottle of Vodka. Then listen to similar stories and hope Bloodspray did some coke off of a hot strippers chest.

    I want to look at all the gorgeous ladies Kpax and Hardcore post in the Hottest Chicks thread. Then see an Ellen Page troll post by Gyrael.

    I want to see Sam and Buddha do it in the Pictures thread.

    I want to see the Bar overrun with nude pics of fellow Dtoiders. Then get them all taken away again.

    I want to rate someone's avatar and talk shit about the person above me.

    I want to post my new workout routine in the Fitness thread.

    I want my forums back. Taste the rainbow.

    Target messed up on a ad apparently and are offering a 360 arcade model for $130 with a $30 gift card.
    Here's the link from$30-gift-card

    Sorry for the shortness, but I figured some of you might want to pick up a 360.

    After spending some time on Dante's Inferno in hellish mode (hard as hell for me), these words came to me. Hope you enjoy!


    Got the golden gift but everything I touch turns from a stone setting into facial reconstruction
    That can only be molded by the emulsion of blistered sleep walking
    No souls just incandecent light bulbs who would like you to believe there is no higher order no higher
    But I've seen through the puppets followed the strings
    All the way up to the Gepetto who lost all faith and wants others to drown in his misery
    Can't believe how many are still listening to these false prophets
    Guard your heart or you will lose it

    Don't speak from the seat of a saint far from it
    I'll be welcomed at hell's gates but they won't realize I'm here to burn this motherfucker down
    Will not go quitely into the darkness I'll hold my lantern high to light the way for other travelers on the path
    to redemption
    Set myself on fire to become the beacon if needed
    Be the last one leaving hell still breathing

    Maybe when I finally unpack all of my music stuff, I'll put some sounds to it and share.
