nothing funny today...

I woke up around 1030 this morning, had breakfast, and promptly got back in the bed. I stayed there until after it got dark....I watched a little TV and messed around on my iPhone and Nook, but stayed in the bed...

This has to be depression right. I mean I can't be so lazy as to just sit in my room and be content doing nothing. I'm not. It was a gorgeous day outside today. It was 69 F less then a week from February. And I couldn't bring myself to go outside...

I could of gone to the zoo today. I want to go sometime soon but I just can't bring myself to go.

This is what usually happens: I decide to do takes forever to get ready and motivated to go...when I'm literally getting my keys and putting on my shoes, I get this overwhelming feeling of " What's the point? This won't make you happy. give up and go back to bed"

random sidenote: Rolling Stone, your 50 Funniest People Now list is got random people no one's heard of yet no Bill Burr...

if your magazine's plan is to not be relevant, then you are doing a wonderful job...

Also I've decided I want to move to LA sometime in my life to be close to good live stand-up comedy...

Weekly Banality Update 1-23-2013

a couple of days late, oh well...

Saw some movies (all were DVD/Blu-rays, Netflix or Hulu):

  1. Dredd - great sci-fi action flick...wish I'd seen it in the theaters in 3d
  2. Resident Evil: Retribution - not going to win any Oscars but...ehhh, it is what it is
  3. Super Size Me - seen it before, watched it again...made me freak a bit about my health...
  4. Battle Royale - Japanese horror/thriller, think The Hunger Games in a modern setting...

After a frenzied couple of  weeks reading Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games trilogy, I've come to a crawl with The Hobbit. I just don't feel it like the others. The writing style is just draining.

I picked up Red Faction: Guerrilla for Xbox 360. Again Sci-fi 3rd person shooter, right up my alley...

My podcasts of note:

  1. Who Charted
  2. Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast
  3. The CAGcast
  4. Nerd Poker

And I'm broke and I need to get off my ass and get my ebay shit in order...

  5. I'd hate movie theaters less if they still thought 3pm was a matinee - 6/23/2011
I'm a regular Ernest Hemmingway...

Weekly Banality Update 1-6-2013

trying a new thing to keep me writing, nothing heavy just the trivial stuff...

I got a Nook tablet just before Christmas...I discovered I really missed reading. I read The Hunger Games and The Silver Linings Playbook within the first week of having the Nook . Both were great, quick reads, highly recommended. Presently reading The Hobbit and Catching Fire

back on the video game horse:
This holiday I went a little ape-shit with all the Black Friday, Blockbuster 50% off all used games $20 or less, Xbox live holiday and Steam sales

  5. NCAA Football 12  - upgraded from '09 version
  6. Rocksmith - now if I can get off my ass and play it more, it seems really fun...
  7. Need For Speed: Shift - it was $5, not bad, just an impulse buy

  3. Lollipop Chainsaw - started's very
  4. Rage  - haven't even opened it yet, got it from Kmart, impulse buy at $10

  1. Galactic Civilizations II - scifi strategy, yes please
  2. Dropitz - impulse buy, at $0.99, I'm ok with it
  3. FTL: Faster Than Light - a spaceship sim, again yes please
  4. Fate of the World: Tipping Point - world sim, I like this stuff, now I have to just make time and play all these PC games
  5. From Dust - I played the demo on XBL, I like it, great price, so yeah this happened too
Movie Time:
I recommend Silver Linings Playbook (see the movie 1st before you read the book), Like Crazy (good but depressing), Butter (straight up funny, in a Cedar Rapids meets Election sort of way)
