Really, visitors? Really? I don't get a lot of visitors, but is this *really* how random people I don't know come across this blog?

Touché, google...

In other news -

Thats right

I have a proper site now - it runs on - it feels more "mature" :)  (M for Mature)

I find more and more that I use this blog for random random ramblings; stuff that really is more suited for twitter and is not really much longer than 150 characters. So expect updates to become even more infrequent on here (such as they are), and instead move to twitter / my new shiny web presence

Some other dude took It's okay though, I grabbed

Anyway. That's that; I won't be closing this blog, cause it's like a time capsule almost. Trawl through old posts, I dare you. See the sort of drivel I used to (and probably still do) type out...

You don't understand where you are without knowing where you were!

Be bold be brave be amazing (lol only Arron will get this)

till next time, cats!

As cute as it is to find pawprints on the door handle and a cat sitting inside my car, all this long molty cat hair has pretty much made my day into a sneezing incomprehensible blur....

Watched Scott Pilgrim vs the world - awesome movie! I'm pretty sure the target audience was me, except the ending kind of ruins the whole film so just leave five minutes before the end and it'll be allll goood

Ikea is awesome. As angry as I was over the Mykea delivery debacle (and I feel a little sorry for the dude who arrived to deliver the stuff, it was just one guy against the world it a rental van...)

once i started unpackin and putting together some of the stuff we'd ordered...its so awesome....the apartment smells like mdf, i love it


Friday, August 06, 2010

On the surface, Mykea seems like a good idea.

But in *practice*, it's been nothing short of a massive fail. So not only are they about two months late with the order, with very minimal updates about what exactly happened, but now they give me a call on the day they expect to do the delivery, insisting that they can only deliver it either today or tomorrow; when I'm extremely busy both days and nobody will be around to accept the delivery.

So in terms of customer service...they are getting a massive FAIL.

Don't buy anything from them. Tell everyone you know; cause it's more trouble than its worth. (Ikea just open a store already!)

Sunday, July 25, 2010

You know what all banks should let us do? HAve like a "virtual overdraft"

so thats where I can put in $100 or $200

and then its like emergency money, so if i ever DO have to go into "overdraft", it will take from that emergency money (and not charge overdraft feez)

omg new design

I was getting sick of the old design so I just mucked around with it. Pretty easy click and do-stuff with blogger. NICE. Also, I took off adsense, cause I have earned $0.01 since I had them on.

lolz! Who was I kidding anyway, hardly anyone reads this any more. I've been putting off actually making a professional, serious site with like a proper about me and this is what Ive done and this is what I am doing etc etc etc but after coming home from work i just dont feel like doing anything

i was going to shove my silly microsoft logos (ie LOOK I CAN DO SHAREPOINTZ) but I couldn't figure out where to put it so I haven't...yet.

also, FFXIV beta is being stink to me and timing out on the login :(

hope everything is good with everyone!

The worst part of a Sunday is around about 10pm, when you realise you are going to have to go to sleep soon, but in doing so the next thing you're going to have to do is go to work

If only we were all millionaires!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

lol so according to Arron, the last two years of FFXIV's development have been solely to get the installer down to 114mb by zipping the zip files that have been zipped repeatedly in a zip cycle

and its someones job to use win zip. all day.

and also they wanted to release it on floppy disk but they thought they would release ffxiv now, and then ffxvii will come out years later on floppy disk.

...lulz :)

Ready for what, Microsoft??

Activision's Robert Kotick:

"We've heard that 60 percent of [Microsoft's] subscribers are principally on Live because of Call of Duty," Kotick told FT. "We don't really participate financially in that income stream. We would really like to be able to provide much more value to those millions of players playing on Live, but it's not our network."

What he really meant was:

"We've heard that 60 percent of [Microsoft's] subscribers are principally on Live because of Call of Duty," Kotick told FT. "We don't really get any money from that. We would really like to be able to get more millions from players playing on Live, but it's not our network."

Which is fair enough, Activision is a business, but it doesn't make him any less of a dick.

I discovered something absolutely amazing today.

The Christian Side Hug Rap video (

Seriously, there are so many things that are just *wrong* with this video...

1) lame siren sounds

2) white talentless rappers

3) SIDE HUGS?! seriously?!! LOL!

4) do they realise they are rapping to the Imperial Death March???

i promise you, any rational person will not be able to stop laughing at it...

Found this aweeesome music discovery site called that marries my two great loves, music and video games :D   its like internet radio with rpg elements..totally totally awesome

A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight,
And no one there you can kiss good night.

A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom;
But a room is not a house,
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart.

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends it ends in tears.

Darling, have a heart,
Don't let one mistake keep us apart.
I'm not meant to live alone. Turn this house into a home.
When I climb the stair and turn the key,

Oh, please be there still in love with me.

AAAH SUCH A GOOD SONG (not actually lyrics.)

Deep Dish Godfather

No Capsicum
No Fresh Tomato
Added mushroom
Added chicken

Pretty much the best pizza you will have for $6.90 ever.

Arron's dream:

Sue Sylvester is a serial killer. But not just a normal serial killer - she is the crazy high tech killer from the lousy book "Daemon", and has automatic driverless murder cars.

The Gilmore Girls are detectives, and along with Tina Fey and Arron they were trying to find evidence and arrest her. But then, Tina Fey died, randomly.

They confronted Sue, but she ran away quickly, and one of her murder cars came along. They were on Eastern Beach, and then Arron got pinned against a wall.

And then he woke up

pretty interesting distributed cracking effort!

Just watched That Face. Amazing play, really deep drained from it all...the only thing wrong was some retarded people in the audience laughing at really inappropriate times (ie the entire time)

Monday, April 05, 2010

lol watch when this kid gets told he is not a single lady XD

Arron: "Why are these babies so hard to kill?!?"

2012 is an incredibly awesomely bad movie, so bad it's good. The last lines of the film are this, I swear;

Female lead: Where have you been all my life?

Male protagonist: In the gift shop.

Male protagonist's daughter: No more Pull Ups.

Male protagonist: Nice.

!@#%() fish they are supposed to be easy to keep!

This. Is. The best. Chatroulette ever

Final Fantasy XIII is pretty friggin awesome so far.

I can see where Edge and Wired were coming from when they said the first hour sucks and is on rails and yes its true; you dont get exp for the first hour. But actually, it kind of makes sense from a storyline perspective (you will find out), and its not like you dont get drops from enemies and new equipment in that hour too...

its so pretty!

back to more of it!

Heavy Rain is an AMAZING videogame. Compelling plot(s), honestly the most photorealistic faces I've ever seen on any console ever, and also, the soundtrack is excellent. It's definitely a game everyone has to play at least once. :)

My only gripe is the R2 to walk - I understand where he's comin from in terms of the "driving" mechanic, but it comes across as clunky and occasionally gets in the way of where you are trying to go...

But yes! Play it! Sonny you can come play it after work! It's that good!

Tried Japadeli yesterday. Pretty good! Very nice interior design etc etc, food was not bad (unfortunately not as good as Saika - or as cheap). Our waitress was a bit awkward but it was a nice meal; I ordered okonomiyaki, and I dont think ive seen many other places offer it.

Tonight I cooked dinner in like the first time in months - its like noodles, with surimi, mushroom and egg

it tastes better than it sounds.

Chatroulette is the weirdest thing online in a long time.

really REALLY Not Safe For Work so you have been warned!!!

This week hasn't really been an awesome week for my health in general, what with flea bites all over my legs (seriously it is a little / a lot disgusting)...but just when that was coming under control, I managed to impale my right hand on a fork.

Yes, lol, a fork. One of the prongs went into my hand and out of it again, helped by the natural curvature of the thing. Surprisingly, while it looked horrible for the one or two seconds it was in my hand, it doesn't hurt as much as it should...although I have a feeling it will slowly hurt more and more and more as my stupid stupid hand finally realises what it's done to itself.

Note to self: next time just let the bloody fish finger hit the carpet.


Also finished watching Long Way Round! It's like the two awesomest things in the world, Ewan McGregor and Motorcycles, in one show - all sorts of crazy shenanigans in a round the world trip/ I would love to be able to do something like that one day, but it must have cost them a shit ton and there's no way I would be riding through Mongolia / the Road of Bones! I'd maybe go to South East Asia and then to Australia, New Zealand, then USA instead.

Go watch!

yay got my two preview tickets to Avenue Q :D

Which is worse; flea bites or having your dad remind everyone how you used to be really fat?

:( was in too much of a rush today and broke one of hte bits off of a glass table...pretty old glass table that. the break is pretty clean though so maybe someone can fix it...or could sell it on trademe to someone who wnats lots of glass?

who builds a glass table, anyway?!

I am mostly to blame but I would like to pass on some of that blame to:

1) people who build glass tables, they are just asking to be broken
2) my apartment for not having a parking space for me, which led to me parking in the driveway with my hazards on and wanting to get back to the car as quick as possible.

Epic cleaning session in the bathroom today.

Seriously epic, I should have used protection so that my hands and feet don't tingle from the caustic products...but that's another story altogether!

Removed the mildew/mould from the ceiling/high walls of the bathroom; accomplished with an office chair, Easy Off BAM mould edition (it worked reallly good, spray was not as wide as i'd hoped though so it was a little annoying) and an old cloth. And balance (please do not attempt to do any sort of cleaning of walls while on an office chair, you are just asking for trouble.)

Removed all stuff? from the shower. what the hell is that? I have no idea but it comes off easy enough with a wipe so away it goes

Removed all stuff from the shower floor. This was a little weirder. Bleach did nothing, and a cream cleanser didn't either. I eventually stumbled upon the fact that I could scrape it off with my fingernails, and then tried to brush but it wouldnt come off. So I scraped off about half of it, and then for the rest of it I worked out that cream cleanser + brush while not perfect was good enough and heaps faster suspicion is that the black stuff is really old adhesive/dried glue stuff from a shampoo bottle or something, it has the same sort of feel as when you are removing the old bits of sticker from the back of a book.

Bleached the toilet - still needs a pretty good clean though, esp. under the rim.

Floor still needs to be cleaned, as does the vanity and mirror and maybe some glass stuff for the shower door.

I put the floor mats into the washing machine, knowing full well I will not be around to hang them up to dry until tomorrow, possibly night, but to be honest if it shrinks or becomes useless I am not averse to throwing it away.

Why am I posting about what I just did, cleaning the bathroom? It's probably the fumes.

Big Day Out was AWESOME

Highlights -

Muse!!! awesome as always, great laser and light show, v. talented, obvious win
The Decemberists - most charismatic frontman performance i've come across in all BDO performances, very clean and polished sound

Lowlights -

Lily Allen. The lazy slut took a smoke break DURING her set.
Fat sweaty disgusting smelling guy standing next to you while muse is playing. you dont know whether to laugh or cry.


some things to take away for dinosaur club - could give Thomas (keys) a floor tom to play with; we could totally do muse-like random improv inter-song fillers

Oh yeah, year in review.

Everyone's crazy about lists right now - top ten, best of decade, etc etc. Instead of that, here are three cool pictures from December 30, 2009 off Flickr (by Mark Valentine, Jesse Estes and Natalie Kucken respectively, even though I have no idea who they are I figured I could at least attribute):  

Okay, I couldn't resist; here's some "best ofs":

Best ice-cream of 2009: Ferrero Rocher Gelato from the Gold Coast

Best TV show of 2009: Glee

Best lolcat of 2009

Bestest pal of 2009: Hmm whats his name again I think its Aaron did i spell that ryte!?

Best Dinosaur Club gig of 2009: Kings Arms, photo by Allan Xia

Best concert of 2009: Dream Theater

This decade has been very exciting and eventful etc etc etc bring on the next one (but please don't go so fast you make me feel so old)



Happy new year everyone!

Auckland City Council thought it best to wish me a prosperous new year and good wishes for giving me a parking ticket.

Their "argue against your ticket" form is pretty retarded; mainly because it has the following layout:

Title: Mr
Date of birth: 5th September 1987
First name (in full): Henry
Last name: Chong

Surely it would make more sense to have the title with the first/last name?

Also, what is a ticketing officer doing scalping the streets for money at 10.25pm on new years eve?

I love the city council SO MUCH.
