New York Day 00

Well, it seems I'm back from New York. And just kidding, it was 6 days. July 25-30, you have to subtract and add one because 25 counts as a day blah blah blah.

I took lots and lots of photos! :)
Mostly of buildings because they made me so happy.

To be specific, over the course of 6 days I took a total of 40 videos and 989 photos that amounted to 1.5GB of space. Ooh, just 11 shy of 1,000 pictures! Darn!

Actually, I'm probably gonna go over them and delete the ones I don't need.

I guess I'm just gonna just write about the trip day by day. They're probably gonna be as long as snake shit (I'm not sure how long that is) so I'll just collapse them. I'll write the posts sometime anyway I gotta unpack first.

Cupcake Dog

God, that's so funny. If I ever own a pet, I want that one.

So I am off to New York for 5 days with my sister tomorrow! :) Wohoo!

+/- Also,

Today's Ayumi's birthday! Wohoo!

Department of Motor Vehicles

So finally, being 17.87 years old, I got my permit. Not quite at the license part yet, but I'm getting there.

I waited around a good hour at the DMV. Fun, fun. I got a -6 on my test but I passed. Did you know you had to listen to the stop-sign-holding-old-volunteer-workers-around-public-schools at all times, even when no more kids are even around? They can be sitting in the middle of the intersection sticking that stop sign in their butts, and you'd still have to listen to them!

Oh yeah, I chose that picture because that sign has always looked very awkward to me. Like someone just decided to make his head unproportionally big all of the sudden...

Seagate External DOWN

Our family has 4 computers, 3 laptops, and 1 internet connection. We also have a 500GB Seagate External hard drive, that serves as a "shared storage" for us. All the photos we take or anything we want to share with each other we simply drag&drop into it. We've been using it for a while now, almost every single picture we took since maybe 2004 is in there.

What happens when the Seagate stops working?

I'm about to shoot myself.

Santa Monica Pier

Went to Santa Monica pier a couple days ago for my sister's birthday. There were so many people, and it was a week night!

I didn't get to finishing the book, but Santa Monica pier reminds me of "the five people you meet in heaven." Which is exactly why we didn't ride the Ferris Wheel.

We did ride the roller coaster though, as much as it reminded me of Final Destination.

Fourth of July

Wilson Park fireworks were so cool!
My little brother thinks this can be an album cover, so all we need is the CD.

+/- This is my sister

She's a duck.

Taking Apart the PS2

I have a PS2 now! Bought a used one for $50! :)
It's Japanese also! Why? Because believe it or not, that's what I am!

I have a story to tell about it, click the collapse for the entire thing

+/- So,

The other day I dug out the old television that's been sitting in our garage because I got a PS2, and as sad as it is, it's the only other real game console in my house is the N64 (actually, I have a NDS). I wanted to play in my room so that I can spend even more time by myself. Lol, just kidding, I don't like playing video games late at night in the living room by myself because we have this fucking creepy doll that our grandpa gave us. Ohh yeah, those Japanese little girl kimono girl dolls that always look like they're watching you. Fuck it scares me so much... I would post a picture, but then what if I look back at the photo and the dolls making a different face? I would piss in my pants man.

Anyway, so I set up the TV so that I can play video games from my bed, hence saving the energy I would otherwise have to use to get up and using the energy to move my thumbs that extra minute or so. I always need something to eat or drink by the way when I play games or watch movies and stuff. That day I had apple juice. Apple juice. How can I be so stupid, it foreshadows a motherfucking disaster waiting to happen. What happened was, when I set the apple juice cup in front of the PS2, the cup pressed the eject button, the thing pops out, tips the apple juice over, and, well, I have myself an artificially flavored PS2.

Ayumi couldn't have described my situation better when she responded to my story, "You're like a little kid." I'm going to college this year, and I spilled apple juice playing video games. Jesus, christ.

In my defense though, would a little kid do THIS?

I had to take it apart because fucking apple juice everywhere right? I don't have a warranty or anything, I bought the thing used. I always imagined opening this thing up when I was gonna install a mod chip, or when a game got stuck in the drive; never in my dreams did I think I would have to open up my PS2 because I spilled sugary, delicious, Tree Top apple juice all over it.

One time I took apart my keyboard because it was dirty as hell. That keyboard was never to be seen ever again.

On with the PS2!

Many screws of all sizes, I totally forgot which went where and that served to be a huge problem afterward.

Chips look so cool. They look so futuristic, how do they work huh? So weird...

I cracked the PS2 open and cleaned out all the (now) syrupy apple juice that seeped into the core of my PS2. It was pure sugar, don't drink that delicious shit.

The entire process took a good 4 or 5 hours, because I'm an idiot. Haha, the first time, it didn't even fit back into the box, and then after it did and I tested it out, the game slot won't open, so I went back and took it all apart and I'm pretty sure a piece went flying when I forced the thing to fucking open, but it worked out in the end so I don't even know. I accidentally broke this other piece, but I superglued that back on.

Also, I have an extra screw left over. Oh well.

Anyway, how was your day?

Threadless: Sea of Pixels

Sea of Pixels - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More
Second Threadless submission!

I only changed a few things, like making the bubbles completely white.

Bored? Go rate it!

Movie: Pulp Fiction

So I finally watched the movie Pulp Fiction which is about 15 years old. Damn. It was just as good as everybody said it was.

The movie was broken up into segments, so there was some of that putting together in your head involved, nothing too confusing like Memento though (which was also an excellent movie by the way). I've seen the cover for this movie multiple times, but it took me til actually watching the movie to notice it was Uma Thurman. She's only in it for a little while there's not really a main character. The movie was funny as hell, same director as Kill Bill so kind of that exaggerated-violent-I-can't-believe-he-just-shot-him-in-the-head-in-the-car-type humor. That was fucking unexpected I spilled some coffee on my table.

Great movie, watch it now if you haven't already.
