Clearly I fail at blogging

I am not good at it, in that it is irregular (and uninteresting) at best. I live a fairly mundane life, and not much of what I do I care to write about (and you should thank me for that. "As I swept up the lettuce I saw some lady just drop a tooth pick on the ground. I mean I just wanted to slap her SILLY!")

Yeah, its either that or a synopsis of people I don't like that you don't know. No one wants that, least of all me.

Ultimately I don't know what the point of this blog was, and I don't know if there will ever be a point and thats a major failing on my part. I need a point, I need focus and I need a reason.

If you would like to see more video from me visit youtube, I will be sure to post stuff there:


If you are interested if following me on Twitter, please do so


I actually update that. Until I found some kind of focus I expect updates to be few and far between.

But until then, I still Blame the Reds

I purchased the Flip Ultra yesterday.

Its a tiny, and has pretty good video for its size. Its just what I wanted.

Expect video and stuff.

Here is a quick test I shot with my co-worker Davis Le.

Atomik Comiks

I am going to rant about some comic books for a post. IF you don't care don't read it.

Secret Invasion issue 2 sucked. SUCKED. $4 for a normal length story, in which nothing happened. NoThInG. Oh we got Mockingbird back? Or did we? I DON'T CARE. Its freaking MOCKINGBIRD, no one in the book even cared. Ronin barely cared and hes married to her. Thats another thing, Ronin? Seriously. You are freaking Hawkeye you shouldn't have to steal dead Skrull Hawkeye's bow and arrow. You should have your own, its all you're good for.

And the Sentry. Paul Jenkins' original series was enough for this character. It was perfect. It was Awesome. Bendis has made him useless. He flies away crying every. Single. Issue. I don't care if he could take out Thor in a fight. If the Vision can get you to fly away crying, you are useless.

Then the end of the book in typical terrible Bendis fashion instead of people just taking action he has to throw in his two cents with terrible dialogue for the Young Avengers..

"Oh man..."


"I-I Think thats a...."

How about this. DO SOMETHING. You kids are heroes, you wouldn't hesitate. If Bendis had read anything involving the Young Avengers he would know that, but no. Bendis doesn't care about individual characters, he cares about making everyone seem exactly the same and characters from the 70's that no one freaking cares about. Spider-Woman? Mockingbird? JEWEL?!?!

This comic has no point. I don't feel paranoid over who will be revealed next, I don't think this will have any greater ramifications. I think its stupid and a waste of my money. I am tired of this crap being passed off as entertaining good comics, and I am tired of people insisting Bendis is the best writer writing comics today. What makes you think that? His witty dialogue?

Tony Stark: "Whats that Hill? I'll be right there. I have to go"
Hank Pym: "What are you doing."
TS: "I have to go...I just have to go. I have to go."
HP: "He has to go"


His original plots? Skrulls have invaded the Marvel universe!

Oh so its the Skrull Kree War?

NO, this time they have infiltrated our population and are masquerading as humans and superheroes.

Oh so its Battlestar Galatica.

Oh well...yeah I guess....

I don't care if Wolverine is a skrull, that has no larger ramifications (although it would explain why he is everywhere) because it will be forgotten in 6 months anyway. What books still deal with World War Hulk? 2. the Hulk books. What books still deal with Civil War? Avengers Intiative, Thunderbolts, and other books fleetingly. Oh yeah guys I am totally registered, now lets go take in the Masters of Evil! What books still deal with House of M. 1. X-factor (granted its incredible, but thats irrelevant). No one cares about what goes on here and unless Marvel is trying to revert their comics to the mid 70's (Hey it kinda worked with Spider-man, and by kinda I mean everyone hated it) this won't matter after issue 8 comes out.

Seriously. $4 for 22 pages of totally boring, bland story.

Things to do when bored in College

I had to write this poem for a class. I wrote it in 5-10 minutes. Little editing. I kinda like it. Enjoy

Things to Do when bored at College.

Check your e-mail, a dozen times in as many minutes, no new Facebook comments, its a shame.
Walk around, enjoy the bizarre art your University has surely commissioned.
Read up on some history.
That building won an award?
You know you can always check your e-mail again. Go ahead.
Download some music, perfectly legal of course.
Go Drink.
Take a Sip, drink socially, get hammered, destroy your liver, you have one college life to live.
Wonder if your degree is useful. I know I can use a philosophy degree.
Join the dwindling straight edge coalition. We meet in the basement, there are 7 of us, one drunk.
Time to check that e-mail.
Screw up Noodle Bowl.
Go to Wawa.
You have no money, look at things in the Wawa and hope thats enough to sustain you.
Read the Watchmen, Sandman, V for Vendetta, Blankets beloved comic books you used to mock. In College its cool. Movies will ruin them.
Talk to your political polar opposite.
Watch the Game Show Network, Oh look Match Game!
New E-mail, my professor wants me to do what?
Destroy your sleep schedule.

Sometimes movies are just terrible

I heard someone say that Josie and the Pussycats was satire? Really? I thought it was a vehicle for pretty ladies in cat ears and tails. Not everything has to be justified. Don't try and place attributes on something that aren't there. Sometimes a bad movie is just a bad movie. Like Howard the Duck, that wasn't some sort of satire of superheroes, or have some sort of acceptance message. No. That was George Lucas trying to make a movie. Hes not really very good at that anymore (and I am starting to wonder if he ever was). Sometimes a Bad Movie is just a Bad Movie.

On a somewhat related note check out my podcast: Backpunches. Its in iTunes. You have no excuse.

I am not good at this

I am not good at blogging.

I am however good at other things
Like thinking of T-shirt Designs that no one will want/buy
Poorly editing podcasts that I keep telling myself I will post
Not doing papers until 5 Am a week after they were do
and of course
Making faces behind someone's back when they ask me to explain Recycling to the new kid. I think she understands it Michael.

That is all.

I have too many alarms going in my life. My phone, my computer, all buzzing at the same time. I need to just step back and chill.

I need to relax when worrying consistently about my classes. I will figure this out, its not impossible. Just difficult. Life is difficult. focus. Take some summer courses. Overload. There are things you can do to reach your ultimate goal. I just have to get myself into gear. Focus and work with the school and my teachers. I can do this. take Spanish or Italian or something over the summer. get that out of the way, find a science that will work, do it. Figure out my Education stuff. Anything, and everything. I will get done...but how long will it take?

I don't particularly care for my job anymore. As such, I would like to find a new one.

Thats about it.

I have been looking and found some interesting things now I just have to fix/create my resume. Is this interesting to anyone? Didn't think so! Carry on.

What have I become?

Sometimes I don't know what in the world I want. I want to do well in school and yet I don't put in the effort I once did. I want to prove I am smarter than you, but I don't try and learn anything new. I want to get in shape, but I am not willing to work for it. I want to be be more frugal and concerned about my money, but I keep buying frivolous things. But most importantly. I want to prove I am a moral and upstanding citizen, but when was the last time I thought out and questioned my beliefs. I have stagnated, become bored (boring) and complacent. Whats the point in life if I don't think about things? Anything. I used to think of myself as an amateur philosopher. What was the last topic I discussed? Who is a Skrull? Well it can't be Luke Cage that's too obvious. Its clearly Echo. Really? This is what I have become. I am a shell of my former self. Empty and Apathetic. Just a quick line I stole and a joke that's old.

I need a shave

Currently I am on Spring Break. I was going to do something. I was going to do lots of somethings, and now...its Thursday and I have gone to Wawa, and appeared in the background shots for something for Comcast onDemand. That is it. All my plans gone, trips gone, time wasted, homework incomplete. I keep telling myself I have a couple days still. But that doesn't really matter cause I am just going to sit in my basement, looking at my computer screen. More excuses. Today I woke up too late, I had work, I am tired. Man up. I still need a shave.


guy at work

He still paints his fingernails black. He stands there. His stringy hair hanging sullenly over his brow. He rolls back his head, throwing his hair back and pulls down a knit cap with the company logo emblazoned on the front. He lackadaisically looks forward. Paper or Plastic. The girl he longs for wanders into his sight and he becomes confused, nervous. He pulls the cap down further and wipes his hands on his Manson t-shirt. He tries to stay calm, cool, collected.

"hey" trying to sound as uninterested as he possibly can, slumping his shoulders.

Well that's not gonna work I think rather loudly as I stare at how ridiculous he looks. I tie a knot in the trash bag and sling it over my shoulder. I can do several things. Wait here and see how this turns out, creepily. Head out the back and walk to the dumpster that way, or cut through the store and at least see how he does. I combine the first and the latter. I "occupy" myself with something momentarily while she rounds the corner and hears his unenthused greeting.

"OMIGOD" I once heard someone say she was convinced this girl was on coke. I can't believe that for an instant. "Hey there 'little brother'".

He has failed again...ugh, "little brother?"...come on...He stands up straighter and makes some joke, it wasn't funny. She laughs anyway, thats the type of girl she is. I sling the trash over my shoulder and head past them to the back. I would feel sorry for him...but really. Black Fingernails? You're in High School.
