Another Pilot Down: The Artwork of George Gonzalez

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Troubled times, you know I can not lie.

Today is September 9th. Nine years ago today I got what I considered to be the greatest video console of all time.

The Sega Dreamcast.

In terms of furthering technology and art, the Dreamcast was in a level all on it's own. In the two years that it was around, it did more to the industry and entertainment than Sony or Microsoft ever did. The Playstation 2 was the cause of Sega's defeat, but it was a shame. The Playstation 2 offered nothing but false promises and featured a very weak line up of games for close to 3 years. (Hmm.. kinda like the PS3.. I just realized that.)

It's pretty weird to see that video game systems haven't even evolved that much since the Dreamcast. That tells you something. Oh, well. I had a lot of fun and I still do. (The DC is currently hooked up in the living room of the apartment next to the 360 and the Wii.)

Anywho, the season premire of "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Cronicles" was on today. It was pretty cool! I think this season is going to be really awesome. It's neat seeing Shirley Manson (lead singer of Garbage) in her first acting role. It was such a twist that she was actually a liquid terminator at the end! What a shocker! I can't wait to see what happens. She is going to be an amazing villian, I can tell.

So, I think I've been spending to much time at the chat rooms. This is getting out of hand. I'm not a kid anymore, I shouldn't be going to chat rooms and acting like a weirdo. But I can't help it. I like to mess with some people and lie about things. There's an awful lot of people in Denton who log on the chat too. It's kind of interesting. Trent and Rob sometimes log on, so if you guys want to go see that, sign up for an account. It's cool.

Also, I like to post in the forums. I think it's my new message board home. So for those of you who'd like to stalk me, feel free to check out my profile here and post around the boards. Life after SoaH, I suppose. It's good to finally be posting a new forum.

So over the weekend we had a bitchin' party here in the apartment. It was a lot of fun. The party marked Jesus' 21st birthday, so before we had the party both of us went to this bar with some of his friends. Needless to say, I tried some new drinks and I've have become a fan of the Long Island Iced Tea. Might just be the only iced tea that I like. So, after a few drinks we headed back to the apartment with the rest of the gang and had a good time. Jaime even had 2 girls in his room! :O I didn't think the kid had it in him.

Haha! But nah, they were just getting high and shit.

All in all, it was fun. I kept fighting with this girl Lacey. I think she secretly digs me which is why we constantly dissed each other. Haha, I'm just kidding. I honestly don't care for some of these kids. Really, the only thing missing was a swimming pool. Mmmm.. that would have been nice.

Anyway (how many times do I say that word??), I have been drawing today and I hope too have something new up before the week ends. This Friday we're headed down to Dallas for a rave that's going to go down. It should be pretty wild. Don't worry, I promise not to take any ecstacy or acid. As long as the beats are blasting and the bodies are moving that's the only drug I need.

..well, maybe some wine. But that's it. Really. ;)
