See you on the other side!

I'm almost to the point where I, with sheer incredulity, can't watch Obama speak anymore. Yesterday, as Sen. McCain made note of, the President says GOP'ers have decided to just "be against whatever the other side is for." So much for bipartisanship! Well John, I'm sorry to tell you that the bipartisanship we were promised has sunk. So, he's dropped the illusion of bipartisanship. Now he takes on two different tactics when speaking publicly: Tell you everything you want to hear, no more, no less. When that doesn't work, what's left? Blatantly lie. Tell people what they want to hear, and maybe they'll stop asking questions.


I'm disappointed with Bethesda. I wanted to play the Fallout 3 DLC "The Pitt" today, but it's massively buggy and they shut it down. Bethesda Q&A got hit hard by fans. I almost feel sorry for them. Almost. So, in order to avoid a world where you fall through the planet, can wander off the map into Stephen King-like misty nothingness (I swear there are Langoliers out there), and there are yellow exclamation marks everywhere, they took it off Marketplace and are working on fixing it. Good, because some of the other problems involve the fact that you can't actually get into Pittsburgh, which means you can't play or beat the DLC you just paid ten bucks for. I was hoping they'd make some quick fixes and would be back out tonight, but nope, didn't happen. Maybe I'll see it tomorrow, if I'm lucky. I'm tired now. Bedtime. Good night, moon.

OMG Teh Pitts?! No wai!!

Here I am, still awake at twenty five after two in the morning. Am I staying up to wait for the release of The Pitt at 3 am? Ye--- nope. I know, you're shocked. I just happen to still be awake for no particular reason. Granted, tomorrow I'll be knee deep in Pittsburghian radiation, but tonight, we dine in Hell. I mean, I will go to sleep. In fact, I just took an Ambien CR, loaded up UNO on the ole 360, and plan on getting frustrated at morons. I mean, playing a few good ranked games.

Which reminds me, have you heard about the imminent release of the new UNO game on XBLA? It's UNO Rush. And it is retarded. I thought it was going to at least have the novelty of playing Tom Sawyer in the background, but nooooo. It's just crackhead spedmonkey UNO where everyone suddenly vomits their cards in a frantic dash to win achievements. So I doubt very much I'll be playing it. And now, I will end this post on a lighter note. Note to self: purchase lighter.

It's Healthy!

So, I come to find out that bitching and complaining [in your blog] about whatever bothers you is healthy way to vent anger and frustration. This information was presented by the US Department of Duh. But, who wants to sound like a pissed off jerk all the time? Not me! I only want to sound like a pissed off jerk some of the time.

I noticed via my 360voice blog that someone gave me negative rep the other day. Considering the only multiplayer interaction I usually have anymore is ranked UNO games, I knew someone had to be acting like a butthurt little baby because I beat them and they were mad so they negged me. Ok, but what did they rep me for? I looked it up.

Language.

I've only been negged twice ever - once was because my ISP was run by retarded space monkeys and I couldn't stay connected, so I was reported as "Quit Early" (which is fair, I will give them that.) But this dumb douchenozzle negged me for Language. "But Chief" you go on, "What did you say? Did you call them names? Did you tell them where exactly they could stick those cards?" Nope. I didn't say anything. Actually, the best I can figure is that someone got pissed off because I wasn't talking. I never - no, scratch that - very rarely use a mic when playing UNO. It's my end of the night, relax and feel good game. And some dickless idiot goes and spoils it by neg-repping me like a pampered little girl.

Oh, good news Xbox 360 buddies - I just won an Ebay auction for a copy of Gears of War 2. So now I'll probably being playing that on Horde mode a lot again. Last time I played Horde mode with some buddies from Gamers Republic it was awesome - in fact, it was probably one of the most fun multiplayer experiences I've had since my first multiplayer game of Left 4 Dead with George, or the late nights I spent after work playing Terrorist Hunt on Rainbow Six Vegas back in '07. Yikes, 2007. 2007....

That makes me think of something else. Well, that's it. Everything makes me think of something else. A lot. Recently, I keep reflecting on the past, a lot more than I used to. Mostly bad stuff, to be honest; stuff I wish I could go back to eight or nine years ago and bust out with some mature shit, but also some good things. Like 2007. Man, I WORKED. A LOT. Work all day busting my ass at a factory, then I would come home and work out on the super mega awesome Chuck Norris Ass-Kicking Device known as the Total Gym (Seriously, kids, I swear by it, it will change your life.) then a few hours later after showering I would turn on the Xbox and play games. It was awesome. Like a drug. I completely neglected the internet. All my online friends didn't know what was going on, what had happened to me. But I eventually leveled out, was able to swing many things at once, balance it all, multitask even. And then.... I got with my girlfriend who became my fiancee who became my wife and now I sometimes forget what a multiplayer online game is. Whee! Looking back is fun. Don't read this paragraph too many times though, please. The Hounds will follow........

Generic Blog Entry 33.0

What up y'all, welcome to the show. I'm Big Chief, like you don't already know. And this is my sidekick, Fat Pat, he goes "eh eh eh eh" and all of that. Ok, not really. That's some modified lyrics from an ICP song. That I now must post. Thanks blog-readers, look what you did. Also, warning, explicit lyrics.



Now that I've gotten that out of my system, it's time to ramble. Lord, I was born a Ramblin' Man... no, no, no, I must not post more YouTube videos. That's enough. Seriously. If you readers wanted to watch tv, you wouldn't be online. Unless you have WebTV. Then you're probably watching tv. And you've also probably time traveled here from like, 1997. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF TOMORROW!!!!!

I was talking recently with someone about the President. Of the United States. Yes, seriously. Yes, people actually still talk to me about him. Yes, they know I don't like him. Can we move on? Thank you. So I was asked recently about the President. The person I was talking to mentioned something to the effect that he was Hitler. Yes. Hitler. Naturally, I had to point out the obvious. I actually added it to the Personal Quotes on the right column, but I'll repost it for the purpose of continuity:

They're saying Obama is Hitler? I thought they said Bush was. I'll bet the next president will be Hitler too.


I'm cynical a lot of the time, but I even have hope. Hope floats. That was in a movie. Although, I don't find that too encouraging, because shit also floats. And we're in deep. But regardless, I have no qualms about anyone if they do the right thing. But my qualms are multiplying right now, and I'm going to need qualm storage soon. I also need to stop watching the news, because it's getting so bad I think my qualms are beginning to reproduce asexually.

So, enough about politics. Anyone see Battlestar Galactica? Everyone who's anyone has been talking about it. I didn't see it. I don't really like it. I saw the first few episodes and couldn't dedicate myself to it. But then again, I did that with the new Doctor Who series, and I actually caught back up a good way streaming via Netflix. Anyway, they smoked space blunts, some people were dying, and now it's over. Hurrah. Nerds are probably pissed at me. Well, that makes everyone, I'm outtie.

Hi shee shy shee shy

Not much of a post tonight. It's late, and I'm tired. I had some Guinness with my meat and potatoes, shot a bunch of guys in Far Cry 2, dwelled way longer than I meant to on whether shooting black guys in video games is inherently racist, until I remembered the entire game takes place in Africa, and they mix it up by throwing some European exploiters in there. Wait a minute.

Anyway, here's what you get. Enjoy it.

Oh hai wuts goin on in here?

Ask yourself, how long, exactly, is a while? Is it a day? A week? Or is it precisely twenty-two days? It is, in my opinion, a bit more than a moment. Ba-zing.

Ok, so yes, I am alive. No, I didn't forget to post here. I felt like crap after surgery. Then I felt good. Then I felt bad again. Then I felt hungry. Then I felt sleepy. Then I felt good. Then I couldn't stay still, got an infection, and everything crapped up again. Oh well. I guess it goes to show you, if you get your face cut up by a doctor, you probably shouldn't try to take on the world for at least another week.

So, what's up, loyal readers? Expecting to hear something awesome in this blog entry? Well, you're not to be disappointed. Remember The Wilmarth Cafe? No? You're a jerk. Oh, you were kidding. Well, you're still a jerk. I'll explain what's going on with things in the following block quote:

Return of the Wilmarth Cafe

First of all, some of you probably find it odd to hear anything about the OLD forums server. There is an explanation, hold on a minute. In 2006 the Wilmarth Cafe was moved to the new server and changed over to phpBB software. After a while, those forums were upgraded to vBulletin and we all enjoyed the new site and the new software.

In May of 2008, WilmarthCafe. com went down due to lack of funding. Since then, we've received an overwhelming amount of emails, instant messages, phone calls, and even threads on the forums of other websites asking about it and hoping the site would come back. Well, in the interim, the old forums have been reactivated in an effort to bring together the Wilmarth Cafe refugees who have gotten lost into the financial shuffle. We now invite you back and hope you haven't forgotten us!
