Internet is pissing me off, rant #2 - Youtube

Youtube. Fuckin' youtube.

I used to like youtube. It was a great repository for creative content, music videos, shows I missed, and especially young women who were all to willing to exploit themselves. While all this is still there, a lot has changed about it.

Lets start with the creative content. Seems like every nitwit with a video camera is trying to be the next video blogging or viral video super star. Stop kidding yourselves. Leave this sort of thing to people who have real talent and creativity. Just because someone got famous for a week making a total fool of them self in front of a camera, it does not mean you will. Stop it, right fucking now, put the camera down. I'm so sick of watching something good then going to a related video that is total crap.

Music videos. True story, I grew up with out MTV. My dad refused to have cable in his house because he thought it was a rip-off. So I do rather enjoy watching music videos whenever I get a chance. Due to copyright issues, I do understand that they have become more scarce. I'm OK with this, but what really annoys me is that there are a lot of videos that now have commercials attached to them. If I want to watch a commercial on youtube, there's plenty of those, I asked for a video, not a commercial. And what the fuck is this VEVO shit? The few mainstream bands I happen to like all have these fucking VEVO channels. The videos load and play horridly slow and have commercials attached to them. And VEVO seems to not like constructive criticism. Luckily, most of what I like is non-mainstream.

And that's another thing. Ads and commercials. Seems like they are everywhere. The ones that pop up at the bottom of the video are the most annoying. I don't fucking want to see them. Sometimes they cover up something I want to see. It's fucking annoying. Stop it.

Most of the TV shows that people uploaded to youtube in 10 minute cuts are gone, also because of copyright. At least there's still torrents. What is still there is like the music videos, slow loading and loaded with advertising.

At least there's still the almost porn, nearly stripping, and butt shaking vids. More than ever it seems. Music just keeps getting worse. And some are just not that great. Well most it seems now. And the girls keep getting younger. Or at least looking younger. I don't even bother looking anymore.

Youtube just sucks now. Seems like I get pissed off every time I use it, but there are some channels I really like on it.

The internet is pissing me off, rant #1 - Facebook and other social networking

Aside from getting sick of invites from the stupid apps (really, I don't want to grow virtual vegetables on a virtual farm), there's a few things about Facebook that have really been pissing me off lately.

For starters, why is it that the twitter/facebook app does not always work? Sometimes it gives me an error telling me they haven't got all the kinks out. WTF??? It was just working? Why is it not now?

I'm getting a lot of people I don't know wanting to be my friend. I was kindly messaging them asking who they are and why are they adding me, but I've gone on to just ignoring them. I'm sick of it. Most are using the Friend Finder app. Look folks, if I don't know you personally and you haven't the sense or decency to introduce yourself to me first, I don't want to be your friend. Especially if you are just adding people just to have more people in your list. That's just pointless and a waste of mine and your time. If you are validating your existence by the number of people in your friends list, please fucking kill yourself, now. Nobody cares about the number of people you have in your list that don't know you from Adam (who the fuck is Adam anyway?). Cut it out. Grow the fuck up.

People that I have never met before that just up and contact me with messages like "Hey Cutie!" really piss me off. Usually this is someone from the middle east. WTF? I wonder how much attention they actually pay to what little they can see of my facebook profile. Yes, I know, I look pretty cute in my picture. But the name "Charles" should clue you in on something. And really that's about all they can see. Which is pretty funny actually. I mean I'm picturing these guys back home talking to their friends. "Hey I just hit up this girl on facebook." What's her name?" "Charles." I think you get the point. Seriously though, it's not cool to contact people on the other side of the planet at random with messages like "hey cutie." Besides, I'm in a relationship and quite happy about it. Is there an option to make that public so Muhammad and Abdul can leave me alone? With names like that and living in the middle east, they probly shouldn't be flirting with a tranny.

Suggestions! I fucking hate this feature. Seriously. I don't care who my friends are friends with. Or what they are a fan of. Or what group they just joined. Or that they don't have enough pictures. Or that I haven't written on their wall lately. Go fuck yourself. How people waste their time is their business, not mine.

The fucking notifications box! Ever have like a lot of notifications and when you click on the little box in the corner the list goes off your screen and you can't get to the top? WTF??? And stop it with the notifications for shit I don't use!

So a guest walks in to the hotel lobby and says "Hey sweetie"

Then says "Whoa! You're a man!"

My shoulder length bleach blonde hair threw him off. The look on his face and the shade of red it turned was priceless.

Christians say the damnedest, and the funniest, things

Here's a wonderful gem from -

You could put 50 pieces of paper in a hat, each with the name of a state on
it. Pull one out and that you tell you which state the new king is going to be
selected from. Then you could put all the counties in that state in a hat and
pull one out. Then you could put all the cities in that county in a hat and pull
one out. Then put all the streets in the city in a hat and pull one out. Then
pull a house number, then choose the youngest adult male in that household as
the king.

That doesn't have to be the method. Any random method whatsoever would
work just fine.

Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the
lap,But its every decision is from the LORD.


This is how a Christian thinks a leader should be chosen. Not just any leader mind you, a king. And at that a single monarch, no judiciary or legislature. Just pluck someone at random and give him all the power. You know, because the "Lord" really chose him because it was at random.

Does this make sense to anyone? It sounds like something that would take epic levels of lunacy and stupidity to think it's a great idea. Random chance isn't how you make a decision as important as who should rule and represent your country.

So happy I was smart enough to realize the Bible is poorly written fiction used to control masses to stupid to know better. Christianity is a cancer on human existence that needs to be cut away before it does more damage.

I'm such a geek

I'm watching 'Nid Week on Beasts of War and filing away at my Emperor's Children Chaos Lord. There's qite a bit of mold lines and flashing that needs to be removed. Very detailed though. I'm going to use him as a Noise Champion in my AngelSpit army.

How the hell did that get on my MP3 player

Hannah Montana.

Hannah Fucking Montana.

I deleted it. But how the fuck did it get there? How long has it been there?

So my question for those of you that read this blog, find anything odd on your MP3 player lately?

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Knew it couldn't last

Yeah, I knew it.

Though I am a little surprised, I hope nothing is wrong.

Just saying.

*waving to my co-worker that is reading this*

So I'm trying to watch Nid Week on Beasts of War

And I'm being bothered by drunk people.

Oh wait, I'm at work and I don't get paid to watch Beasts of War. I don't get paid to bitch about it in my blog either. And I don't think people I work with get paid to read about my bitching in my blog, well that is if they are reading this at work.

Any who.

Even if I were doing things I get paid for at the moment (I'm as done as I can get at this point), getting bothered by people who are already pretty loaded and want to get more loaded is pretty annoying.

Well it's about that time of the night for me to do more stuff. Once all that's done, it's back to Beasts of War.

And probly getting bothered by more drunk people.

One thing I really can not stand about my job at the hotel-


Fuck that.

I'm not talking about work in this post, I'm talking about what I've been doing with my Warhammer 40k stuffs.

I've got this squad nearly completed. Just one more marine to go and squad "Make You Sin" will be finished. I'm also planning on makeing a banner for this squad. Well, each squad.

First, making a guest appearance on bass - err blastmaster - Bootsie Collins!

Reduced: 68% of original size [ 750 x 553 ] - Click to view full image

I just couldn't resist.

Here's 4 recently completed Sonic Blaster weilding CSM's.

Reduced: 51% of original size [ 1000 x 374 ] - Click to view full image

Like the 'hawks?

Here's the squad so far.

Reduced: 60% of original size [ 850 x 399 ] - Click to view full image

I still need to trade out the champ's bolter for a Sonic, but I think I'm going to use the spare Blastmaster I have for that. Just shorten it up and turn it forward so he's holding it with one hand. Yay! More conversions!

The CSM with the pigtails is next. After that don't expect much until a few weeks from now after I purchase a battleforce.

One of my more amusing quotes as of late.

At least I think so.

On arguing with conservative Christians online -

Arguing with conservative Christian windbags is fun. But if you are doing it on the interwebs, make sure your spelling and grammar are absolutely perfect. This is more important than your actual argument, especially when they are wrong or have no real argument and are too full of themselves to admit it. Eventually they will resort to some form of childish name calling, that's when it starts getting funny.

I don't think I have ever said anything more true.

Grumble. Grumble.

Grumble. Grumble.

They make an effort to give me more counterspace.

Grumble. Grumble.

Then it gets all cluttered up.

Grumble. Grumble.

Then I have to clean it before I start.

Grumble. Grumble.

At least things have straightened out here.

Grumble. Grumble.

I'm finding fewer things to bitch about.

Grumble. Grumble.

I guess I shouldn't be bitching.

Grumble. Grumble.

But I am.

Grumble. Grumble.

It's just in my nature, deal with it.

Grumble. Grumble.

Grumble. Grumble.

Grumble. Grumble.

Pat Robertson - Yet another reason I'm thankful I'm not a Christian


Blessing in disguise? Pact with the Devil? WTF??????

Almost gives me the impression that he thinks they deserved it. What kind of a lowlife asshole says this kind of shit about a natural disaster? That's right Pat, natural disater! Neither your god or your devil had anything to do with it. What kind of stupid piece of shit thinks that anyway? I thought people stopped believing in deals being made with the devil, curses and the like about the same time they stopped believing in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.

One thing about being an atheist, keeps me out of being part of the same group as scum like this guy. I know there's some good, decent Christians in this world, but it's shit like this that makes them look like a religion of asshats.

On a more serious note, if there is anything you can do to help these people, please do. And if there is anything you can do to hurt Pat Robertson, please do that afterwards.

I have a question and I need an answer

Look at these freshly converted Chaos Space Marine helms -

Angelspit, Band Themed, Chaos Space Marines, Noise Marines, Slaanesh, Work In Progress

Angelspit, Band Themed, Chaos Space Marines, Noise Marines, Slaanesh, Work In Progress

See the one with the pigtails?

I was thinking about putting it on a 'marine in drag,' what do you think?

BTW, How do they look?

Conversions and perversions

So I went shopping today and bought some more paints and new brushes (which my girlfriend is using right now) along with a pack of sonic weapons and Green Stuff.

Before having to go to work tonight, I made the head for my headless Blastmaster operator using Green Stuff and a left over Space Marine Scout head. I also took a couple of plain Chaos Space Marine helmets and put "mohawks" on them.

Batteries are dead in my camera, no pics yet.

This was my first time working with Green Stuff. Harder to work with than I thought. Should look pretty cool when done though.

Wednesday, January 6, 2010



Yeah so this morning, after my relief showing up about 10 minutes late, I was informed by a different co-worker about who made everyone else at work aware of my blog.

I'm not mad. Actually I'm quite thankful, it seems to be more effective on at least one incident than the note I left in regards to it. Which is kinda sad, but whatever works. Maybe some more changes will come about. Maybe the one that has been reading this and telling everyone can suggest enforcing some sort of a tardy policy to management. I've heard that in some places, people are fired if they show up late enough times. Now I'd rather not see someone fired, but there are plenty of people looking for jobs right now and I'm sure someone can easily be found that will care enough come in on time. Just a thought, just a suggestion.

Besides, doesn't the internet exist for griping about what ever is pissing you off? And trashing people on at least a semi anonymous level?

Well that and porn.

That being said, here's a delightful tune about working, performed live by Angelspit.

A few things going on

I'm just the talk of work when I'm not there.

Well maybe not, but I was informed that someone at the hotel is looking for my blog to see if I said anything about them in it. Well this particular post I'm not going to say anything bad about anyone. There's a guest that said he's going to do that. He also said he was going to say something good about me.

See what happens when you do your job right?

That was kind of a dig, wasn't it? Oh well. Moving on.

And the first thing I want to accomplish for the new year...

I want to get my bike back on the road. I miss riding my bike. And it makes me less dependent on the bus. More exercise and less bus riding makes me happy.

My AngelSpit 40K Army is coming along nicely.

Really nicely. Seriously, have a look. I've also completely changed my list. Big thanks to Fritz for helping me with that. BTW, if you like 40k you should seriously check out Fritz's vids on youtube. Seriously.

40K, serious business, seriously.

One bit of annoyance.

In a previous blog I asked for comments if any one read it, no one dropped a comment. I'm just trying to figure out how many people are reading this thing. I don't get any comments, so I can't tell if it's being read.

I feel like a prom night dumpster baby.

That's all for now.

Another year in the shitter.

Let's take a quick look at the high points-

  • Changed jobs
  • Won a drag talent contest
  • Performed with a cast
  • Sold my piece of shit Ford Escort
  • Moved to a better place
  • Went to DragonCon!
  • Saw to The Cruxshadows. And hung out with them. And worked for them.
  • Saw AngelSpit. And made them cupcakes.
I think that's about it. There might have been more, but those are about the most memorable at the moment.

So what's in store for 2010? Simple things really.

  • Lose more weight. Damn it, I want to be thin.
  • Fix my bike. Then I can spend less on bus fare. And get more exercise. And not be as adversely effected when my co-workers come in late.
  • Perform more. I love being on stage!
  • I probly should get some sort of a motor vehicle. Would make getting places and getting to shows easier.
  • Go back to college and get closer to finishing my degree.
  • Finish my 40K army and use them in a tournament.
Like I said, pretty simple really. I'm also entertaining the idea of changing jobs again. That is if things don't improve around my current place of employment. That's all I want is for all those that relieve me to show up on time. And for them to do their job right. Especially when it comes to guest requests. It gets pretty annoying when I get bitched at because somebody didn't do something. More so when I can predict it's going to happen by who worked that day. Just like I can predict how late I'm going to leave by who relieves me in the morning. It's just a thought now. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. It would mark the second time I left the same place because of people I work with. Maybe it's just the frustration talking at this point, but the frustration has been talking a lot. I actually like my job despite how much I bitch about it.

We'll see what happens. I'm trying to focus on the positives here.
