Due to Coursework, Exams, Blah blah BLAH. We’ve heard it all before.

The Wii was released in America! And no-doubt i’ll be posting about what i’s like.

My friend is taking Woolworths to Court! I’ll cover that too.

I got a Slimline PS2 for Peanuts! Let’s talk about that now!

We’re Rainyuki Recommended! 26 October, 2006

I recently signed-up to Bloggerhub.com (now on the Blogroll) in a bid to boost the traffic of the blog. Rainyuki was offering to review peoples blogs, so I decided to show him mine. Here’s what he had to say:

“Substance is good. It is easy to read, with a casual tone.
May I suggest a better contrast between the background and entries? This is as the background seems a little bright. It could be adjusted by placing a background with a slightly darker tone.
Number of entries on a page is pretty alright, not cramped but just nice.
Images are just sufficient for each entry.

Reading substance: 9 / 10
Layout: 7 / 10
Images: 8 / 10
X-factor: 8 / 10
Variety: 8 / 10
Language: Simple and Casual.
Profanity: None to mild.
Audience factor: Teenagers to the adults

Overall rating: Recommended. You are good at what you are doing, keep it up. Apart from a few minor problems, lets say… you passed with flying colours.

Thank you for your submission.”

Needless-to-say i’m thrilled with this great review, and i’m proud to be Rainyuki Recommended! I’ve also added Rainyuki’s blog to the Blogroll.

I’ve decided to add Last FM to the blogroll, since it’s a great website for meeting new people who are into the same music as you! All you do is download the Auto-Scrobbler – and it detects your media players (Winamp included!)

Connection Lost Updates 23 October, 2006

I know I havn’t been posting as much as I should lately, but that doesn’t mean i’m not devoted to this blog! I am, I just have a really abverse way of showing it. But due to some bits of work at school, my re-discovering of OGame, some issues with some people, and general lazyness – the blog has received somewhat of a negection-spell over the past few weeks. I know those are really crap excuses, but news has been running a little thin lately, and I don’t just want to post just for the sake of posting.

But you are to expect a few things in the coming weeks. Firstly, i’m going to start reviewing games. I’ve reviewed a few before, but i’m going to go through my 12 games with a fine-tooth comb and give you an insight into what they are really like to play.

I’m also thinking of getting back into comic-making.  I dabbled in web-comics a about half a year ago, and i’m happy to say I very well may be re-kindling the flame, so to speak. But in terms of what to expect from the comic – I can’t give you much. I maybe re-think the whole idea. I may re-think the style of my drawing. Hell, I don’t even know how i’m going to make it yet. Adobe Illustrator? Draw-it-in-real-ife-and-then-scan-it-and-then-resize-it-and-then-colour-it? Or even…*gasp* MS Paint?!

I maybe even get back into game making. Some of my friends and myself started making a game, and with two of the 4 gone, me and one of my friends may get back into it. Who knows.
There are also a few more things in the pipeline, but since most of them probably won’t make it, i’ll just keep them under-wraps for now.

God, i’m so pissed off… 2 October, 2006

Well, here’s the thing: My History Teacher sucks. I’ll start from the beginning.

I am currently working at level G in History. For those who are not familiar with the British grading system – G is the second worst grade. It’s bad, I know, but the woman can’t teach. She goes through the topics pretty touch and go, and she expects us to know. She also expectsd us to do things without instruction, even though she has created this iron grip on everything we do in class. She really does have double-standards.

Also, in this country, we are given a ‘Target Minimum Grade’. This sucker is what the teacher in question expects you to get. Let’s take a look at mine. Remember I’m working at a G? I was even when she set the T.M.G, so what is my T.M.G? A – naturally.

So when it came to one of our regular tests, last week, I thought I did pretty well – much better than my other tests. And I had. We got our results today and I got a D. Now, considering what I had got before, this is definatly a step in the right direction. But she had decided that if you didn’t get one grade below your T.M.G or above – you would have tore-do the test. So i’m stuck in a Detention next Monday to re-dothe swine.

Let me ask – where the fuck did she get a T.M.G of A from?! I’m a bright kid, and i’m in top set for Science, Maths, and am doing well in Art, Photography, Media, and IT. And it just so happens that the subject from which i’m getting the worst grade in my life from, is being taught by her? Bah.

First, for those of you who don’t know who Motion City Soundtrack are, they’re a really good band, and I suggest you download buy their music. Anyway, I went to see them live with support from Ok Go! and The Matches.
