Good Evening. Just some rants. and other things.

Good evening.

You may have noticed, I haven’t posted for quite some time. Not since my criticising some parts of Torchwood. Since then I’ve watched series 1-3 of Torchwood. Yeah, I could have complained about that a lot… and I’m now half way through series 4 of Doctor Who. The new doctor who, of course, never got a chance to see the first lot. So, I’m currently on Midnight. About to see that fun little life form on the surface. Not that you ever really see it. I like these more psychological episodes, along with Blink, and to a lesser extent, the two regarding Libraries.

There’s someone outside.

Apparently capable of tearing the cockpit of a ‘crusader’ vehicle, tank, thing…

Okay, Hobbes, the one in this episode of Doctor Who, not the ne from V, doesn’t seem to understand that you can get different types of life, some of which may not be affected by radiation that affects other species.

Ooh, it’s communicating! That’s nice.

Anyway, other things. I’ve decided what to order Benski and Emski for their Birthdays, need to buy that sometime soon…

Did you know, that apparently despite doing the paperwork to officially leave KE VII I still got EMA for what, 3-4 weeks.

I’ve got a Blue pen. I say blue, it’s purple, but they aren’t mutually exclusive. The casing is Purple, it writes in blue. Got it last Christmas from my parents, a pack of different coloured pens. But they’re all blue.

And she’s repeating what people say. That’s nice, I wonder how many mistakes they made when filming.

Those back-up systems take a Damn long time to come online, and this part would be even more fun to film if they couldn’t edit audio in again later. When they’re both talking at the same time. She’s slightly faster, of course.

Jethro? That’s an old man’s name. okay, you can blame NCIS for me thing that.

Now poetry, We must not look at Goblin Men.

Can’t be bothered to transcribe the whole thing.

Is Jethro Merlin? I’ll try to remember to check the Actors.

Hehe, they seem to accurately represent the inherent paranoia of humans. And what’s that called? Social disassociation? Okay, I think I made that up. When people will do stuff as part of a crowd, that they wouldn’t do on their own.

Funny that the doctor doesn’t explain things that would help, makes the episode more interesting, if also more annoying.

And now she’s ahead. And anyone who fell for that is an idiot. Although I must admit, whoever played Sky is a good actor.

I’m wearing a Tobuscus shirt. I was going to wear another one, but I can’t find it, where’s it gone?

Personally I’d like to see more of the aftermath of this episode. But no, they just all look distressed and exhausted, then it cuts to when they get rescued.

I watched series 3 in a day. Well, in about 11:30 hours, I could have watched The Lord of the Rings Extended Editions in that time. This one, its 00:11, and I’ve got 3 episodes to go. I’ll finish it tomorrow. Well, no, today I suppose.

I was writing with that purple blue pen a lot today, there’s some odd stuff there. Depending how much I can read, I may attempt to Transcribe it, but it wouldn’t make much sense.

How come people always sing bad sons when doing Karaoke?

So, do these pens work? They seem to. Very good, and it’s purple! Of course, the writing isn’t, but the case is nice enough.

I’m watching Doctor Who. The Doctor & Donna are visiting the Ood.

Ooh! Firefox still has Umbrella Persona.

Sontarans soon. May check youtube, email etc. first.

Sontar-ha!

Jack is Weird. And a bit stupid. With surprisingly bad sound. Tobys’ is better with an iPhone. He’s not Tobias, unles he’s been lying to us for, what is it, 3 ½ years? Anyway, ‘Tobias’ just reminds me of a Red-Tailed Hawk. Well, not initially, and only permanently for 12 books thanks to the Ellimist.

Much prefer Cory and Kates vlogs. They actually include stuff they do every day.

He’s in space. Or rather he was 4 days ago.

Kate’s weird. Loki’s cute, and not a horse.

Dmitri is fun. But his videos are very loud. Donna Noble has left the library, Donna Noble has been saved.

Yeah, I cut some stuff out of that. Had the lyrics to Thunderchild in there as well, along with some more stuff about styles of vlogging, some stuff I can’t read and some potential file directories for Donna to have been save too. Including ones for drive I. (that’s my disk drive.)

What? She’s on a DVD.

Okay, I don’t know why I assumed people would object to that in some way…

Oh, and that stud uses the spelling and grammar from when I was writing, so please forgive any mistakes. Although quite a bit was autocorrected :/. That takes the fun out of it.

Aww, how sweet. Tobys’ Wikipedia page has been deleted 8 times. Hehe, I’d have thought he’d have earned one by now. Although, I suppose he doesn’t do much outside of youtube, exceptthe VMAs for MTV, some internet journalism, staring in a film… wait, that sort of stuff usually gets people Wikipedia pages.

Okay, I spent the last hour reading about Youtubers, now my eyes hurt.

Okay, I’m going to bed now… I’ll probably be up till 04:00 watching Law & Order: SVU anyway, but trying to get some sleeps important isn’t it?

Hehe, thanks for reading, I’ll try to post more regularly again, I just find It hard to get the motivation to write when nothing interesting is happening, apparently I can still write quite a bit once I get started. Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Torchwood, other TV things, and incoming chicken.

Good evening.

So, it’s been a while since I posted anything, still for the reason of nothing having happened.

But last night I watched Torchwood: Miracle Day, which made me want to play Black and White because of ‘miracle’… but aside from that it annoyed me.

*SPOILERS*

For starters the many who survives the execution at the start is injected with a green fluid. It should be clear. And he undergoes what appears to be a rather shoddily depicted seizure. Lethal injections in America are performed with Paralytics.

The mobile phone ringing? It’s kept in a bag, in a draw. So apparently it has infinite charge?

There’s some problems with this. I also don’t like what’s shown in regards to Captain Jacks, let’s say, ability.

If he became a fixed point in space and time, so he has to exist, in that condition, why can he now be injured, and judging from the description of the next episode, is the only person who can die. ‘jack realizes he is the most vulnerable man on Earth’.

I was under the impression that the TARDIS was more powerful than just about anything else, and it would require something else capable of manipulating time & Space to that extent to change that. That’s an uncommon ability.

They were probably going for some kind of role reversal thing… I’ll miss those comic moments where people think he’s died…

Okay, that whole ‘you can’t do this, you have a child now’ is going to really piss me off.

There should be a lot more religious witterings, ‘oh it’s an act of god, he’s saving us all from death’. That’d be simultaneously funny and annoying… anyhow, enough of that for now.

*END OF SPOILERS*

Hehe, Emski’s trying to download it, and it’s being slow. That’s kind of my fault, I’m downloading Fallout 3 GoTY through Impulse. Interestingly, this transaction worked. The last one still hasn’t, gamestop/impulse still don’t recognise that I’ve bought them, aside from trying to charge me for them. Kind of annoying really.

Aww, that’s annoying, the download rates dropped from 3.3 Mb, to jumping between 0.2 and 1.2.

Want to watch the earlier series again… may borrow them off Emski some time. Soon…

So, who else hates micky flanagan? I’ve stopped watching mock the week because of him. It seems, there was that joke about a turning in the first or second episode, which wasn’t funny, so he just finds a way to reuse it at any opportunity possible, so yeah, an excellent TV show, ruined by one man.

Okay, I may have oddly strong views on that.

Anyway, I have roast chicken to eat soon, so thanks for reading.

I say ‘soon’, 35 minutes (from when I typed that, not when I posted), but I’ve run out of stuff to say, and I want a reasonable ending. Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Dead Parrots, Killing Asthmatics, and Black & White.

Good Evening.

I haven’t posted anything since Tuesday. With good reason, there’s still nothing happening here.

Is this mean?

Tom says (12:25):
*will do later, i should really go and get my medication for my asthma

:[Willski:[                       says (12:25):
*hehe, make it more fun.
*run there sniffing dusty cats

Watch: http://www.youtube.com/user/MontyPython#p/u/36/npjOSLCR2hE (you’ve probably seen it before, Monty Python, Dead Parrot.)

finally managed to get to appropriate place to apply for job near here. Is it sensible for, in the section for what you do in your free time, to write ‘avoid direct sunlight’?

Anyway, what have I done today? Can you guess? I played Black & White 2. Which is fun. You know, I’m surprised that, considering Molyneuxs (excuse my spelling) apparent fondness of Kinect they don’t appear to have any plans to make a Black & White game for it. The second, and maybe the first had vr glove support, and you do just control a hand, so it seems perfect for it. Although I’m not sure how well Kinect to distinguish between different gestures and stuff, as a lot of it is in the placement of fingers… anyway, I’d like them to do that. Not that I personally like Kinect at all, but it might mean they make another Black and White game for PC.

Okay, quick bit of research. Molyneux would like to do a Black & White for Kinect, and everyone uses the same quote with rather odd sentence structure. ‘”The trouble with being a designer now is that there are way too many ideas than there is time to develop those ideas,” he said. “I would love to do something like a Black & White again……but there is only a certain amount of resources and a certain amount of time.”’

Shouldn’t that be something like there are way too many ideas, and not enough time to develop them?

Ooh! Lightning! YAY!!!

And very heavy rain, I may go and dance around outside in a tin foil hat.

Where was ahh yes, bad grammar. Microsoft word doesn’t seem to have a problem with it… maybe I’m just being stupid.

More lightning! And more sunlight… odd combination, seeing as there’s still rain/hail… fun.

But now, what to do? I feel like playing Halo Wars, could I get Tom to (more thunder, didn’t see the lightning that time) co-operate?

Nope, he’s not on MSN now… that ruins my plan… err… yeah, it’s 18:32, and I don’t foresee myself doing anything, so thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

(Ow. Looking directly at nearby lightning is painful. Shame it’s only negative…)

Driving Combustable Lemons.

Posted in Archie, Driving, Driving Lessons, Friendlings, Halo Reach, MSN, Pets, Portal 2, reminiscing, tedium, thoughts, Tom, XBOX 360 on 05/07/2011 by willsalt

Good evening.

As the title may imply, depending what one I decide to use, I just had a driving lesson.

I actually woke up for this one, which I suppose is a good thing…

It was supposed to last from 11:00 till 12:00. Instead, it lasted from 10:48, until 12:04. Which was beneficial.

Just testing general driving skills… i.e. driving around for an hour, not hitting things. I suppose it’s easier than learning manoeuvres or something… although, at the end he did describe me as a ‘fucking menace’. Not due to driving or anything, I’m just not the bests conversationalist. Was told times for never driving lesson, about 40 seconds later, he said can you remember that? I said ‘remember what?’ apparently not the response he was looking for.

Conversation with Tom regarding driving lesson:

Tom says (12:22):
*how was it?

:[Willski:[                       says (12:22):
*i was described by driving instructor as ‘a fucking menace’

:[Willski:[                       says (12:23):
*so very well, i thibnk
*maybe without that unnecessary ‘b’…

Tom says (12:23):
*he he .. why u a manace?
*ffs menace*

:[Willski:[                       says (12:25):
*because I’m annoying in conversation

:[Willski:[                       says (12:26):
*my driving was mostly described as ‘very good’, ‘acceptable’ and ‘perfect’…
*when it wasn’t he mostly just said ‘mirrors’ or ‘brake’
*which isn’t really commenting on the quality of the driving, just naming things i don’t use

:[Willski:[                       says (12:27):
*he could also have said ‘stove’, ‘potato clock’ or ‘combustible lemons’

That’s fun.

But I did correct the spelling, and swap Tom’s Screen name for ‘tom’ as he just uses his email address. (The :[ accompanying my name there are Bats.)

That’s nice, just looked out the window, and saw Archie defecating… not the most pleasant site.

So, enough Portal 2 references.

That does leave me with nothing to do again… so reach, in an hour or 2? Probably…

Thanks for reading, Ta-ta.

Love Willski.

need to post (as in, mail) stuff, and other things…

Posted in Halo Reach, Rants, reminiscing, tedium, thoughts, Tobuscus/Toby Turner, XBOX 360, YouTube on 02/07/2011 by willsalt

Good evening,

I’m marginally annoyed at the moment…

Oh, before I get distracted, apologies for not posting much, nothing’s happened.

Anyway, slightly annoyed, because as you may recall I did my student finance application. And I’m quite sure at the end they said they’d contact me saying what evidence I’d need to send them, that was march the 20 something, I think, then yesterday I get an email reminding me I had to send them my birth certificate. Thanks for telling me to start with.

Sure, there’s an ‘evidence’ page in the application, which basically said we’ll sort this out with you later. Which they didn’t so now I need to figure out how I send them that. Didn’t check last night/this morning, I went to bed.

Didn’t sleep though, too warm for that… well, I got about 2 hours… I’m going to start keeping windows open…

And large blocks of Dry Ice on the floor.

Remember I got a car, sort of. One of the conditions was that it wouldn’t be used for dog walking, and that we wouldn’t crash it and stuff… Well, in the words of Simi, the back seat is ‘completely covered in dried up dog slobber, and fur, and stuff,’ and that it ‘it stinks of dog, and mud and [faeces]’. I’m hoping that exaggeration, or we’ve broke the world record for most slobbering dog.

So that’s fun…

Now mothers going to accuse me of being overprotective of ‘my car’. No, I don’t think of it as my car, I still think of it as Wendys’ car.

And now I’m on Reach. That’s fun.

Toby shouldn’t freestyle…

New family guys are a bit worse than the older ones.

That is all.

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Good Evening.

It’s Thursday, 28 July 2011, thank you Microsoft office for adding that to ‘Thursday’, and its 13:10.

I have a driving lesson in about 20 minutes, so let’s see how that goes.

Bleh, getting more bored… don’t want to start doing anything till I get back.

I went on Oblivion yesterday, on PC, ben stole my copy for Xbox, and not surprisingly I left the sewers with a Perfect Order Sword, Order Priests robes, Hatreds Soul, and 10,000,000 gold.

Yeah, I still need to do more observations… observing… observe-ey stuff…

And now it’s 01:12 on Friday. Yeah, I got a bit distracted. I’m going to be now. Well, soon. For now I have stuff to do. (Nothing important, just crappy online games…)

Hehe, awesome.

Kate’s there! yeah, feel free to ignore that.

Okay, now it’s Saturday… Helping Ian test if his webcam works… it does. his microphone, perhaps not. he does weird stuff… i’m sure he was dancing…

Hmm, the smoke alarms going off, well a smoke alarm, does that mean the house is on fire, or that mother’s trying to prepare toast?

Okay, it’s tuesday now, and this post is terrible, but i’m just going to throw it at you and start again…

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.
