Howdy all

A bried update, beofre I never post for another 2 months again.

CSU is lousy, but that's another entry all to itself I'd like to tell you about April 8th.

Well, really, it started October 30th. Still in my Goldeneye days, I really wanted to get to know some of the students on campus that still played/enjoyed Goldeneye and/or PD. After some emails, I get in touch with the Live Life Late (late night organzation for students) coordinator. I give her my ideas, and she seems to be really sold on this awesome idea. We set a date, but we don;t advertise enough, so about 5 people showed up. Since there were lots of projectors, the students brought their xbox's and played Halo instead.

That was the practice round

Next weekend will be bigger, and better. After 2(!) months of planning, this idea of a video game get-together has turned into what could be an huge event.

The set up is as follows

HALO 2 Tournament:
People: teams of 4, preferably from frats
rounds: until there is one team left!
prizes: tba, but we have been getting replies from businesses saying they'll donate sound systems and other big expensive junk.
Playing: 4 xbox's networked together for 16 player, 4 team action.
Screen: Large Color Projectors
advertisements: ASAP!

When teams or groupies lose/get bored, there will be a seperate station that will have GE/PD/SSB/MK64 being played nonstop. It's a loser-out thing, but it's not for prizes, just fun time, like the all-nighters we did when we first got these games. I'll probably be at my controller all the time, so it'll frustrate everyone else :p The major problem with this station is the TV size. It's mounted on the wall, 7 feet up, and the screen is at most 24". Maybe we can find one more projector ;)

And finally, there will be trivial pursuit/game night in the "cafeteria" area, for the videogame challenged.

From what I've heard, the food is going to be great...

lengthy, my bad

P.S. I'm not done with GE yet ;)

At the moment, I'm pretty stoked for classes to start up again. I have dam 00 207 in my pocket, new textbooks that I got used, Office Space on DVD, and a 73-67 win by the CSU mens basketball team. Tuesday is gonna be pretty shocking as well, because I've had about a month off from school. I'm not really looking for ward to the Math and College Comp classes, but I'll survive at least (one incomplete, one new class for math mods, and College Comp is Gen Ed class, so I'll be surrounded by students, hopefully of the hot female variety ;) ).

I've changed majors. Piano is fun, but I'm not so much into piano that I want to practice 4 hours a day on it. Plus, I get more money if I play piano at fancy restaurants than with symphonies, not to mention all the people I'll meet. :)

On the Goldeneye topic, I've already stated I jsut got 207 on Dam 00, officially knocking Adam, Harvey, and Peter from the Leaderboard. Personally, it's bittersweet, because it's a great time, but I can still go faster if I play another 5 hours, and Alex ruined my vibe by getting it about 14 hours after I did. I guess someone can't take a n00b owning ONE of his times. Sheesh. Oh well, Good job on that time Alex, but don't expect me to settle with 207 now. ;)

Well, my birthday is on Feb. 8, so I'm trying to get feasible ideas for the big 1-8. I'm trying to avoid anything that'll put me in jail/get me STD'd.

Also, I strongly urge anyone to get UT 2004. The game is great, as it has all of the previous versions and more on 6 discs and 1.5 GB. Maybe some of you already have it. Contact me when you feel in the mood to beat me at it.

My Favorites as of right now:

Author: Grisham, The Complete FarSide
Music: Propellerheads
Game: Goldeneye, Unreal Tournament 2004
Football: Broncos
People: Girls (duh)
Piano Music: Rachmaninoff
Upcoming Class: German 2

With that, I'm off to watch to the Odd Couple. Peace out all. And remember, only I can wish I were famous. ;p

Current Mood: cheerful
