not dead yet

Finally updating the 365 Beers blog. Not sure if there will be room for the NOSE blog too, but if the other starts to expand beyond beer related stuff, this one could get resurrected.

So don't delete me yet...

Go Blazers!

What's up peeps? Long time no write....
I just wanted to pop in and say that Rip City is alive and well in the city of Portland. The Trail Blazers are on fire right now! B. Roy is basically the fookin MAN and cannot be stopped. Rudy is insane from beyond the arc and gives them a very dangerous outside presence while their other star rookie, the Odenator himself, has really came into his own and is truly starting to dominate down in the post. L.A. is looking better lately after a little bit of a slow start. Outlaw is still the shiz and gives them some firepower off of the bench. The youngster, Nic Batum, has surprised just about everybody with his play. The Vanilla Gorilla is having his best year ever and is a beast down low and on D; and we don't even have Martell back yet.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a title within the next two years. I would party my ass off if that happened. I'd would get absolutely hammered and possibly get naked. But no rioting for me, I'm not gonna go out like a Phillies fan (Stay classy Philadelphia).

Halo 3

If you thought I wasn't bloggin much before, wait til Halo 3 comes out next week. The only time I'll be touching a computer will be if I need to look something up not available on the 360.

That being said, I found some wonderful links I thought I would pass along regarding Rooster Teeth productions and Red vs Blue, the popular series of halo comedy (or machima as I just learned it is called). No one reads this, so they are more just a list of links for me to refer back to, but here you go just in case.

Halo 3

Halo 3 comes out in September. I fuggin can't wait. It just passed 1 million pre-orders and there was a new article in EGM along with a killer ad.
halo3.com
1up.com/Halo 3

He's received the highest commendations for bravery. Countless decorations for honor and selflessness. But Master Chief's greatest achievement reaches far beyond what any medal could ever hope to commemorate.

For the men and women of the 26th century, he is a human embodiment of possibility, the last Spartan standing against an angry tide. This strength of spirit is forged through his legend.

Jericho VII. The Battle of Reach. High Charity. Tales rife with sacrifice and courage. Tales that grow, flourish, and inspire.

And while he shapes his own history, he in turn shapes the history of all who follow.

For no matter what horrors are released upon the day, they cannot match the reply of soldiers emboldened with his spirit, an army of Master Chiefs unto themselves. BELIEVE

There is also a lot of good info here:

including a cool case for holding controllers and games. I think I might geek out and get all this shit, who knows.

Washington

God was missing for six days. Eventually Michael, the Archangel, found him, resting, on the seventh day. He inquired of God. "Where have you been?"
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.
Over there I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"
"Ah," said God, That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, plains, and coulees. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, and carriers of peace."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance."
God smiled, "There is another Washington...wait until you see the idiots I put there."

next blog button strikes again

So I saw the little choice for flagging blogs with objectionable content. So I went to that ass pirates site or what ever it was called and flagged it, then tried to find something a little better. After a bunch of foreign sites, another pillow biter site that I flagged and then threw up in my mouth a little, I found this site
http://theredsrocket.blogspot.com/

A big time Reds fan, I need to save this to check out after the weekend series in Seattle that I am going up for. I hope we win so I can see what he has to say.

This also prompted me to get on myspace for the first time since last year at least. Got some pictures from my trip to LA last month from Apul's site.
