Portal 2 Stole My Joke!

RAWR! This is so hilarious. First, watch the Portal 2 Intro Demo assuming you haven't already. Now, watch it again because it was awesome.

Anyway, that little eyeball stole my brute force hacking joke! HAH! I mean, I probably heard it somewhere before I made that joke but I still say it's mine (or Krimsin's and mine I suppose, since it was a collaborative effort coming up with those jokes). That's just so amusing, though. Also, on the mind note, can't wait to see Chell's Mind in Portal 2. HURRY CYH! You only have a year (or two given Valve Delays (c)) to finish Chell's Mind.

Damn, I really want to play that game now though, looks amazing.

Now, go watch this Portal 2 Intro Demo because you know you want to again. Or watch this Harry Potter trailer: Harry Potter and the Deathly Something or Others. Done? Okay, now go watch The Last Airbender this week with me. Okay! Now go watch...um, Avatar....for the 42nd time.....or something.

Anyway, I'm off to go try to see if this chick who gave me her number last week wants to go out for drinks.

EDIT: Hey check this out! Xesum made me a hilarious poster. Check it out. If Barney's Mind ever becomes a motion picture I want this to be the movie poster. :P Thanks dude.

Barney's Mind - Episode 2 - Special Edition

Barney's Mind - Episode 2 - Special Edition - Part 1
Barney's Mind - Episode 2 - Special Edition - Part 2

Yay, it's done. There's a great bit at the end for you people who posted a "tamale" comment on the Meeting of the Minds video. Sorry if I missed anyone though, it took long enough as is (like 4 hours to make that stupid thing, mostly because windows movie maker sucks).

Also, here's all the spellings that people came up with for "tamale": Tamale Pie Chart

Enjoy!

Episode 2 - Remake is done

Well, almost. All the video editing is done and the audio is all recorded and added to the video, I just need to run through it and make some final adjustments and then I have to add my "tamale" surprise at the end for everyone. But, it's late so I'm gonna go to bed, gotta get up early tomorrow and register my new car (and pay the $400 excise tax on it, grumble).

So, expect that in a day or two at the most. YAY!

I figured it out

Cyh gave me the idea of what to do with all these "tamale" (YES! That's how you spell it) comments and it's genius. MUAHAHAAH.

Also, finally getting the episode 2 remake done.

P.S. I've decided that grammatical articles are useless. For example here is the 2nd sentence of the post without articles and you can still understand it perfectly if you think about it.

Also, finally getting episode 2 remake done.

Sir Ian McKellen is amazing

Ahahah, just stumbled upon this little gem from a while back, no description just play the video and skip to 1:58 (or watch the whole thing), you will not be disappointed.



Anyway, back to your lives citizens.

New car!

So, in a sudden semi-impulse, but one that by all accounts will only improve my finances, I have sold my old Cougar, which I barely knew as far as cars go, and purchased a 2010 Ford Focus SE.

The story (feel free to skip): Because I drive so much I've put so many miles on my Cougar that it was getting to be a real pain to keep it running, and I still had about 2 years left to pay it all off. The past 6 months have been good but recently I just replaced the rear brakes, rear sway bar end links, and a front tie rod end and just found out it needs even more work (two struts and front rotors). "Bah, no biggy, I'll get it all fixed" I said. Well, just the other day, there's now a fun little grinding coming from the engine that comes and goes when starting, I think it's the starter clutch not disengaging properly. Also the front suspension is squeaking like crazy (been doing that for a while now though but it's getting worse), the paint clear coat is coming off (on top of the previous owners horrible maintenance of the body, want to beat him/her senseless for what they did to it), and recently both the transmission and/or the engine doesn't sound and feel 100%. Also it needs new tires. So, after being bored sitting at the local Ford dealership waiting for a ride I got to talking. Before I knew it, and after spending 6 hours running numbers, checking budgets, test driving cars, and reviewing my options, I came to the conclusion that I would spend only slightly more per month, on average, if I bought a brand new, low-end car. I figured as long as I can replace my ATX Cougar with a MTX with similar features it's sporty and practical enough for my tastes and I ending up settling on the Focus.


2010 Ford Focus SE, MTX, fully loaded including Ford's sync system. Drives great, has decent low-end torque for an I4 and get's 35 MPG highway. Since 95% of my driving is at 70 MPH on the freeway it should make a great commuting car, really spacious in the front, a pleasure to drive, really happy with it.

Anyway, so that's delay number 10,001 on why I haven't finished Episode 2 of the Barney's Mind remakes. Forgive me, I'll get them done soon, I promise! (If anything, sooner! Now I don't have to spend weekends fixing my car.)
