Old Hobbits Die Hard

Okay, for the first time, I tried to unlock an iPhone, because my sister aquired a new an old iPhone because she left her old one in a cab in Tbilisi, but wanted to use her T-Mobile sim card. So I found the most confusing guide ever. Naturally, but not intentionally. I didn't want to actually jailbreak the iPhone, just unlock it. Similar, but not the same. So it did't work, and I still need to work on it, but if you have any tips, or an awesome guide, leave them in the comments. Because you know, you can comment. Just, click "0 comments", and go down to "post comment", and then type things, and then click "post comments". It's actually quite simple. So as I leave, I will leave you with the saying, "old hobits die hard". Oh wait, it's habbits? noooo.....

When A Heart Breaks, Does It Break Even?

 Due to my inapt ability to do things in the most unhelpful manner, I wrote this is ms word, and so when I tried to put it into blogger, the equations did not work. but anyway. I think if you click it, or something, it will go full size. Otherwise, it is very difficult to read. Merry Christmas.

Compilation!

Due to the fact that I have been busy lately, I have not been able to post stuff. It is directly proportionate, as difficult as it might be to believe. But in my leave, I stumbled upon many interesting and noteworthy things. So I have compiled everything interesting that I have found lately. For instance, while in the store, I found these.

That's right, Justin Bieber trading cards. They would go perfect with my President Obama trading cards.

Sadly, I did not get the former. My dollar would be better spent in my pocket. But anyway, I have improved the lego temple, and the tower that I mentioned is complete, and the computer-ish room is much better. and not so small. also I have discovered that Eminem was wrong.
Life is a Nintendo game. He said it wasn't. (click here if you are confused) Go to 2:19, it should say linked comment right below the video, just click on that. So anyway, This should sustain some of you, for a little while a least, if anyone still checks this blog. I should be picking up the pace soon. With Christmas break and all. Or that could lessen the chances of an update.... Idunno. We'll see.

Spoiler, I Mean, Harry Potter 7...


Saw the new harry potter. It's pretty cool, I think it lived up to it's expectations, but there were a few things I thought odd. Of course, i haven't read the book in like three years, so this will be based on solely the movie. The first odd thing was the fact that the three people they chose to transform into off of the streets to sneak into the ministry, happened to be wizards, all with prominent rolls in the ministry. Two of which happened to be traveling to the same room, and one's wife was on trial, that very second. All of which were well known enough to be known on a first name basis with Umbridge, who was like, second in command. Right. Also, when Harry and Hermionie go into the cemetery, the first grave Hermionry walks up to, she wipes the snow off of a small portion, and boom, there is the mysterious symbol. But maybe it was the will of the force. It was the mediclorians inside of her. And while I am on that note, still in that little village neighborhood, why would they leave a terrible house like harry's old house in that nice neighborhood? It looked like a quant little village, and there is just a house that has been untouched for seventeen years. Wouldn't they rebuild it? It's prime estate. I don't know.
Another thing, there was an excessive amount of scenes where they were in large fields, and nothing else. minute long scenes, of just large fields. But that is a small detail. Also, Hermionie seemed to have been taken to countless remote destinations in the woods as a child, with no civilization for miles upon miles around. Oh, and her parents would have had to walk, because they were not magical. That makes sense. Well, not really. And were there packs of Snatchers at every destination they had previously traveled to, just standing around, hoping that they will come back? You know, when they just appeared, just standing there. But I liked the movie, the free hand camera in the certain scenes really gave it an edge. Made it more exciting, more like the book. Well that doesn't make sense. But you know what I mean. I really enjoyed it, and thought it was much better than the sixth and fifth one. I don't even remember what happens in the fifth one, even though i have read the book twice, and seen the movie at least once. I really just don't remember. But I would highly recommend seeing this movie. Even though If you just read this, you should have already seen it. Because it makes no sense otherwise. But yes, I really liked it.

Sucker Punch

Ok, so while stumbling, i found the most epic movie trailer ever. I do not even know where to begin. As the title of this entry would give way, the movie is called Sucker Punch. And because I cannot begin to describe this, i will post a few screenshots from the trailer.
And I highly advise you click on the photos to see them full quality.

The trailer is here, and i did not upload the video strait to my blog, because it would bring the quality down. so just view the real trailer, not the teaser trailer. There are samurais, robots, dragons, WWII era planes and weaponry, castle like architecture, think i saw a zombie, there was that part with the helicopter, with Saturn or something in the background. Unreal. The only bad thing i can see about this movie is the fact that it will not come out for another five months.

I changed the banner! So now it is not so boring. It is actually kind of exciting! So as a reward, here is an angora ram! I will probably update some more stuff soon.

A Tribute to Nute Gunray

I am sure many of you have seen Star Wars. I mean, who hasn't? But the role of a certain individual is skipped over by millions every day. This character was Nute Gunray. You may be asking yourself, "Who?" and this is slightly understandable. But only slightly. He had a larger role in the movies than any other villain in the first three in the series. chronologically, story wise that is. Nute Gunray is the only villain to appear in all three of those movies, besides Darth Sidious. Many of you are probably still asking, "Who?", and I will explain. He was that guy on the trade federation ship in the beginning of The Phantom Menace, he was on Geonosis with Dooku makin' all those droids, and he also was on Mustafar when Anakin flipped into that rage. He was pretty much just a separatist leader, who obtained the status as Viceroy. His main role was in the invasion of Naboo, but he stood as a symbol of the separatists, until his less-than-noble death. He was the last living member of the trade federation, before he died of course. His last words, "The war is over! Lord Sidious… promised us peace. We only want-" still resonate his tone of innocence. He death was cruel, and undeserved.

Zombieland Movie Review

I mentioned I saw Zombieland in an earier post, and I think I also mentioned I would do a movie review. It's a possibility. So anyway, seeing as I do not have all that many other things to blog about, I will tell what I thought about the movie. So If you haven't seen it, I'm probably going to spoil some of it. But you should see it anyway. If you want.
The movie is pretty much about this wimpy guy, whom I will call Columbia, who finds a tough guy, and they team up to fight zombies. Then they find these two girls, and at first, the girls trick them and steal all of their zombie huntin' stuff. Now in this movie, the zombies are not that smart. I will point of that I personally do not like zombies all that much, because they are impractical and creepy. So I have not seen that many zombie movies, and do not have that much to compare these zombies to. But they are slow, and not very intelligent. they are not faster than people, (like in I Am Legend) but kinda just like normal people. who eat other people. Anyway, Columbia and the tough guy are mad at the two girls, so they go after them to beat them up or something. It really is not all that clear as to what they will do when they try to catch them, maybe just steal their stuff back, but that's kinda weak. And I forgot to mention, they found the two girls in a grocery store, because the tough guy, Tallahassee, really wants to find a Twinky. So Columbia and Tallahassee never get to take their stuff back, because they find the girls car that they stole, but then the girls sneak up on them and take them captive. This is a pointless move, because the girls, who obviously at this point show some kind of trickery and intelligence, could have just stolen Tallahassee's car again, and kicked him and the Columbia out. Then they would not have to always watch their back, need less food, and might get better gas mileage. (I dunno, less weight might give you better mileage. I think thats how it works.) But I guess the older girl, who is the same age as Little Columbia (like 20 i guess), had a thing for him. so they kept him. Oh, and throughout the movie, all of the characters are trying to go somewhere. the girls are trying to go to a theme park, so when Columbia gets told that the city he is going to, Columbia (everybody is named after their city), is a ghost town, he goes to the theme park too. Which is close to LA. So because Tallahassee has no choice, and all he wants to do is find a twinky, he comes along too. This kinda makes sense. Everyone becomes friends, and they decide to go to Bill Murrys house. Columbia and the smaller girl watch Ghostbusters, while the older girl, Wichita and Tallahassee just chill in the other room. they find Bill Murry who dressed like a zombie to not be eaten. I think It's pretty cool that he is in a movie, as himself. That alone made the movie just that much better for me. He's a cool guy. anyway, he decides to play a prank on Columbia and the small girl, Little Rock, and pretends to walk in to his movie theatre like a zombie. because he still has his makeup and whatever on. So then Columbia freaks and shotgun'd Bill Murry. Even though i saw this coming, it was still too bad. anyway, they decide to give him a proper funeral, by dropping him off the balcony. To sum up the rest of the movie, the girls ditch them in the night and go to the theme park, and atract a lot of zombies. Columbia realizes he loves Wichita, so he a Tallahassee go to the theme park too. they save the girls, and Tallahassee gets a twinky at the end.
 I thought this movie saved zombies for me. I had a negative impression, but combining the whole freaky zombie thing with a comedy really made it better. and Jesse Eisenberg is a pretty cool guy. He was in The Social Network. I didn't see that. So I would give it a 7/10 for plot. It carried along quite well, and kept you intrigued, although it did not reeally make sense in some parts. But that is even better. It complemented the Comedy part of the movie. I would give that an 8/10. So it was a swell movie.

Snowboard!

So recently, I acquired a new snowboard. Previously, I was using old boots that did not fit, and a snowboard that was slightly controversial. And so, recently I went to a store, sold abunch of the old boots and boards, too small to fit the smallest of gazelle, and I was gifted with new awesome boots, and a new snowboard! It's like Christmas! In Octsnowber! ah, and I guess I should be continuing the "MS Paint Countdown!" thing, but this might be more exciting.
This is the back. There is a clown on it. Well, half a clown.

This is on the front of the board, between the two footholderess, and the stomp pad is right on the mouth for some reason? I don't know, But I'm going to get a clear one is replace of this one. partly because it hides the graphics, and partly because this one is halfway nonexistent. The rest of the board was not that graphic, so I did not take a picture of it. and for some reason, (this was taken with my phone), half the pictures my phone takes are of terrible quality, and scaled down to microscopic size, retaining about 5% of their original quality, while half are still somewhat decent. satisfactory. and these fell into the first category. So anyway, I might be changing the format of this blog soon.

Lex Luthor!

You may think of Lex Luthor as boring antagonist from that recent superman movie, but I believe he is much more than that. In his younger years, he was quite a character. I am referring to the show Smallville, which is actually quite awesome. and the guy above him is Clark Kent. so yeah. you guys should watch it.

I don't remember that episode...

There are a few things I could put here..
  • Which one does not belong?
  • I'm a doctor, not a jedi!
  • Ms Paint countdown continues!
  • Technically, I did this in MS Paint, so it counts.

Spawn Of Stroud (The Gingerbread Man)


There once was a benevolent fox who lived alone at the edge of a village. The fox, whose name was Basil, was the fastest in all of the land, and was quite proud of this fact. Basil had been a track star all throughout school, and moved on to win countless marathons. All of the forest animals admired his great skill and speed, and nobody came close to challenging him.
    There came a day when the townsfolk came to hear of the great feats a certain fox had accomplished, and organized a village-wide race. Certain villages could not believe that an animal could even begin to compare to a human in speed. Most of the villagers were offended, and dismissed the thought that a fox could beat any of them. A certain villager, one named Les Stroud, came to town that day to pick up beans and potatoes for him and his wife. When he heard that a fox had challenged the humans, he laughed, and entered the race immediately. For Les Stroud had also been an expert runner as a teen, and could run the length of the forest in record time. Les looked to the day that the village would truly admire him for not only beating this fox, but for winning the race.
    There came the day of the race, and as the sun rose over the hills still wet from dew, the participants lined up to challenge Basil. Basil was not nervous, for he know that he was the quickest, and he would not lose. As the starter gun was fired, all of the townsfolk, including Les Stroud, started at once, but Basil was too quick for them. Basil finished the race half an hour before anyone else. Basil took his trophy, and modestly trotted back into the forest, greeted by all the other foxes. Les Stroud came to the finish line second, but by then, everyone had left. He was outraged. His glory had been stolen by a fox! Les swore that one day, he would have revenge on Basil the fox.
    Three years later, Basil was sitting in his den, and chatting with other foxes about days past. Basil had retained his popular status all throughout the years, and had not once been challenged since the big race. Suddenly, Basil’s neighbor, Danial, ran in and told of a horrid creature boasting of great speed, and insulting townsfolk and animals alike. Danial told Basil that he had already vulgarly insulted his friend Susan, who was a cow. Basil felt it was his duty to stop this terrible monster. He went to find Susan, and found her weeping in a field.
    “My fare heifer, what is wrong?” Basil said.
    “Oh fox! I was approached by a small brown demon! He spoke of feats such as outrunning an entire barn full of threshers, a field full of mowers, and an old man and woman!” Susan moaned.
    Susan pointed the direction the creature had followed, and Basil continued on his quest. Soon he came across a horse who told the same tragic story. The horse said that the small devil was waiting in Miller’s Field for Basil’s arrival. Basil uncertainly walked the rest of the way, where sure enough a small creature was standing in the middle of the field. It started to rain and a chill shot through Basil’s spine. The walk to the mysterious creature was one Basil remembered as being filled with fear, fear of the unknown. Suddenly, a booming voice that sounded of nails against glass, but almost omnipresent in the sense that it sound as if coming from no distinct source, screamed the following:
    “I've run away from a little old woman, a little old man, a barn full of threshers, a field full of mowers, a cow and a horse, and I can run away from you, I can!”
    “Why are you doing this?!” Basil yelled over the new-found thunder.
    “You shamed my family! My father would have been world renowned! You stole our fortune before it was even know to us! Now you must pay! Once it becomes known that a Stroud has beaten the infamous Basil the fox, we will strive, and you will suffer!” The small demon retorted in a deathly shriek.
    “Tell me your story,” Basil spoke, “for I fear I do not entirely understand!”
    “You would be the one to say such a thing!” The devil vociferated, “I am the son of Les Stroud and Martha Stroud! You shamed my father three years ago today! He was planning on challenging you again, but his legs were crushed by a falling tree, and is incapable of walking ever again! My father realized he needed an heir to follow in his path, and thus I was spawned! For not only was my father a skillful runner, but my mother was a famous chef!”
    “You have it all wrong! I am not the one who is deserves this torment, it is your father!” Basil pleaded. “Don’t do this!”
    But the Spawn of Stroud did not listen, and challenged Basil to a race. The devil of ginger color started with blinding speed, sending rain and barley off the ground and into the air. The rain increased to a downpour, and the thunder was deafening. Basil started, and caught up to the creature in a part of the forest where the sun does not reach. Basil pinned the creature to the soaked earth with lightning speed.
    “I warned you.”  whispered Basil. He looked into the demons eyes, and saw a look of absolute terror, then sank his fangs into the creature’s heart.

The Lone Bear, on a Bike!

The Lone Bear just won the Tour de Ukraine. Held once a year, the 134 stage race forces the participants to circle the entire Ukraine, twice. The Tour starts in Dnipropetrovsk, and travels through the Kherson Oblast until it reaches Alupka. From Alupka, the participants climb the Ai Petri, and race along the peaks until they reach Koreiz. The tour contains monumental descents and climbs, and finally ends in the streets of Kiev.

Brock Obama!

I mean, their names do sound alike. Brock, Barack..

Look Alikes!

Okay, just i found these people, who happened to look alike. I will probably have more of these later, because they are fun! anyway, But the people are; Davey Jones (Pirates of the Carabian) looks like Leonardo De Vinci, and Tony Stark (Iron Man) looks like Thomas Nast! And I coudn't get find pictures, but Eminem in his "Not Afraid" music video (when he starts to fly around) looks like Neo from The Matrix.

More for the Lego Temple!

I built a new room, the council room that I mentioned. It will go on the third floor. I mentioned that I am running out of legos, and the ones used for this were graciously donated by my friend. There is a table and windows for looking out of. and yes, that sentence did end in a preposition.

Above is the table! and the door rotates! it is big enough for eight important people to stand around it. and converse, about whether or not it was a good idea to include so many open windows in their secret council chamber.

John Leguizamo

While we're on the topic of The Kill Point and Romeo and Juliet, If you see the 1996 version on Romeo+Juliet (staring Leonardo DeCaprio and Clair Dane), you might realize that Tybalt (the other most awesome character), is the same as Mr. Wolf in The Kill Point. I thought that was pretty awesome.

A Tribute to Balthasar of Montague

Romeo and Juliet is a great story, but the pain and misfortune could have easily been avoided. It was Balthasar who messed everything up. I mean, nobody gives him much credit, and nobody knows who he is. Pretty much all he did was rush to Romeo after Juliet's "death", and tell him everything, before the letter had arrived. If Balthasar hadn't of been so angsty, Romeo would have gotten the letter and been like " Oh, I guess there's nothing to worry 'bout after all." But it was probably more like "Quaf! Tempest slew thy noblest of deeds, egal, but what one pray thou distraught?" And neither of them would have died. and they would have lived in fair Verona, and needst not be troubled. Balthasar was pretty cool though. and he kinda looks like Frodo in this bush.

The Kill Point

I started watching this awesome show on netflix called The Kill Point. It's about these dudes who try to rob a bank, but as they are walking out with the money, some FBI agent in the bank shoots at them. then they're caught up in the crossfire, and are forced to return to the bank. But while everybody was shooting, some person in the bank lets almost everyone out the backdoor. So when the robbers come back inside, there's like 20 people and they take them hostage. It's pretty awesome, because the entire series, (8 episodes) consist of them in the bank and action-y stuff happening. And in netflix, it's watch instantly! So I would highly recommend it.

Guitar!

So, about three weeks ago, I wanted to start to learn how to play the guitar. I was going to try to learn how to play the banjo before that, but that didn't work out, and this is already a bunch more fun. And, I got it for free, from this musical church that was giving away a free left handed guitar! craigslist is awesome. anyway, sense I don't play music left handed, (even though I am left handed) we strung it like a right handed guitar, and it's pretty amazing. Its a Fender Stratocaster Squire, and really amazing, even though all of the dials and knobs are on the wrong side. and because I already have an amp for my electric violin, i don't have to buy one! Does anybody have any suggestions for what I should learn how to play? And not Metallica, because I cannot play that. At all.

LegoTemple!

Well, a while ago I desided to rebuild the recked remained of the lego jedi temple that I had built, but when i started to pick up all the peices, i realized that it was an awful excuse for a building. It was one and a half storys, and the entire building was pretty much a long hallway to a council room, which was too small to fit everybody. So then i desided to build a new temple, that made more sence, and was really cool. or something. So I started work on the greatest lego architectual feat ever accomplished, in my room at least. Four stories (at least), with an armory, and secret study, an infirmary, a computer room (what are those called?), a watch tower, a jail, a helipad, a roof garden, AND a council room. Ha, I know. I'm actually running out of legos? has anyone ever run out of legos to build something? and its not like those weird shaped blocks that nobody has ever seen, it's those regular blue 2x2 blocks. which every person I have ever met has at least over 9000. anyway, here are some pictures to show where i am right now.

As you cannot tell from the picture, this is the computer room. Yes, there will be a roof, and to the far left is the will-be hallway. and stairs near the top, as you can (or cannot) see. should be cool. This is on the second floor.

This one is even harder to see what it is. I don't use flash on my camera, so its really weird when i take pictures in my room. but it works great in about every other room? Anyway, this is the infirmary, where the injured dude lies on the medical table, and the dudes at the computer system thing heal him. Cannot really see the third man, wearing a black hood? anyway, hes at the console. this is about of the one and a half level. or something, you can see the hallway from there, but half of the hallway is missing. because i am running out of large platforms.
Not too much to see here, just the front of the building. Instead of a single door (like last time), i decided to attempt to build two swinging out doors, and it worked! and there is a small keypad to enter in the password.
So anyway, that is where i stand right now. i will probably post more about it later, I still don't know what this blog is, or will be, about.

First Post!

This is my first post! Because you are reading this, you have been gifted with a video. Which you can find here.
