[ mood | frustrated ]

How can it be that when a product is supposed to be released within a month and a half, all the publisher has to say about it is..... 

"Watch this space"

No release date

No pictures

No information what-so-fucking-ever 

Just.....   

"Watch this space"

 

*Howls in frustration*

Hope X-Posted from DA & Mindsay [15 Apr 2007|12:21pm]
[ mood | blank ]

Uhm..... Venting..... I don't really feel like going into details.

Hope:


I'm searching for a light to lead me on,
When all the other lights have been turned out,
When all the hope in life seems to be gone,
And yet it is in hope we should not doubt,
But can it be enough to trust to hope?
It seems that hope has failed me yet again,
And put around my neck the hangman's rope,
And left me once again to writhe in pain,
And can it be enough just to be brave?
And soldier on no matter what the cost,
Or shall this merely lead us to our grave,
As it brings to light all that we have lost,
Even if we could hear the angels sing,
Sometimes this hope is such an empty thing.

The Rules For Survival: [12 Apr 2007|06:50pm]
[ mood | blank ]

The Rules For Survival:

1) Always remember your equipment was built by the lowest bidder.
1) Train like you plan to fight.
1) If you're up to your eyeballs in gomers, you're in combat.
1) When in doubt, use industrial strength deterance.
1) Priotities are man-made, not God-made.
1) A plan never survives first contact with the enemy.
1) If it's stupid, but it works, it aint stupid.
1) Only turn to blow the opposition away.
1) Always honor a threat.
1) Know the opposition.
1) Always know when to get out of dodge.
1) Always know how to get out of dodge.
1) The important things are always simple.
1) The simple things are always hard.

These are my rules for survival, adapted from 'Furry's  Rules For Survival' in the book Firebreak by Richard Herman Jr.

Why are they all listed as rule #1? "Priotities are man-made, not God-made." The most important rule is always whatever rule applies at that instant.

New Bands, New Albums [09 Apr 2007|08:16pm]
[ mood | Pumped ]

It seems that I have a new-found musical love.......... Megadeth. One of the so-called 'Top 4' of 80's Thrash metal (Along with Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer). They are Abso-Fuckin'-Lutley brilliant.

I bought 2 new CDs on Saturday morning, this is not a big thing, I buy 4-5 new CDs every month. However one of these CDs is rather noteworthy. Machine Head's new album 'The Blackening' is the album in question. A few years ago, when they produced their flop of an album called 'Supercharger' (Which is not a bad album by any means) many people claimed the band was dead, they had split with their record label and hads to pick up the pieces. However pick up the pieces they did when they produced the metal masterpiece that is 'Through The Ashes of Empires' wich is fucking brililant. But recently they have follewed 'Ashes' with a new album 'The Blackening' which I dont think words can describe, but PHE-FUCKIN'-NOMINAL  gets fairly close.

Anyway, that is my ramble done with.

Have a good one.

Next in Line! [05 Apr 2007|07:09am]
[ mood | bored ]

I took delivery of a new game last night.

Guillotine from Avalon Hill. The revolutionary card game where you win by getting a head.

You take the role of a Guillotine Opperator in the French Revolution going for bragging rights in the opperators dressing rooms.

It is hillarious, a filler game in the same light as Family Buisness.

Shock Horror [17 Jan 2007|07:18am]
[ mood | happy ]

I have had so many problems with gaming companies over the last year CoughForgeWorldCoughAlderacCough that I had actually forgotten that some games companies have a brain in their heads and a sense of customer service.

I made an order with Mongoose Publishing (the publishers of that wonderful RPG I rambled about in my last entry (PARANOIA is fun, Other games are not fun, Buy PARANOIA!, The computer is your friend)) to aquire more books for the system (As many of you will know I have an almost Compulsive Disorder when it comes to buying game manuals)  but I accidently ordered 2 copies of the same book rather than a copy of another book. But unlike the afformentioned games companies, Mongoose got in contact with me to confirm the order (and discover the mistake)

Props to Mongoose.

TGIF & Praranoia [12 Jan 2007|07:58am]
[ mood | hyper ]

It is official. I am ready for this week to be over.

On the plus side, I bought a wonderful new book 2 nights ago. Called Paranoia XP. It is the rule book for a revamped RPG. Set in a post-appocalyptic era the last survivors of the human race crowd togeter in an underground habitat called Alpha-Complex. Run by a Mainframe computer Alpha-Complex is constantly under seige by traitorous forces, be they Commie, Mutant or the member of Secret Societies. The Computer has divided all the population and all areas of Alpha-Complex into security clearances.

The player takes the role of a Trouble shooter, that is you find the traitors, be they mutant, or Secret Society members, and then when you find these troublemakers, you shoot them. There is one minor problem. Each player is both a mutant and a secret society member, and therefore a traitor.....

The game is just hilarious, it is all about the party backstabbing one another, accusing each other of crimes and then finding (or fabricating) evidence.

It is inevitible that characters die, especially in a game where the life expectancy is measured in days, if not hours, but here your name just goes up by one number and you take control of your next clone.....

I can't wait to play this game, especially because the group that I play with is so very, very random to start with.

The Computer is your friend, Obey the computer and you will go far, disobey the computer and you will be used for reactor sheilding.

Kind Regards

Dean-R-QLD-1 (Dean-Red Clearance-Queensland-1st Clone)

*Dean-R is convicted of treason and shot for knowing too much about Alpha-Complex* (Which does actually happen in the game, if you argue the rules you are a traitor and will be shot)

*Ahem*

Dean-R-QLD-2

The computer is your friend! Fun is mandatory! Failure to have fun is treason! Treason will get you shot, Repetedly! Have a nice day! Enjoy your stay in Alpha-Complex!

Well, The New Job Is Going Well [15 Dec 2006|07:54am]
[ mood | calm ]

I have been at both factories for at least a couple of days, even having to spend some time on the production floor, which sucked somewhat, but it had to happen.

Now with only a week left untill the Christmas break, I have to look towards next year and actually having to do some real work. As it is I may be asked to go out to Cabulture next week and measure up the factory that they have there and draw a proposed upgrade layout. Being the only qualified draftsman on the payroll has it's perks. Especially when it could include $1500 in free measuring equipment, that I may or may not get to keep upon termination.

So all in all, all is good.

Have a good one.

Well, I will be in this office for only 7 more working days after today, then it's off to Stratco Ormeau for a few months before I step into their fledgling X1 drafting office.

It is the end of an era.

I think I'll miss this place

Hmmmmmm, A New Job? [19 Oct 2006|09:53pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Hmmmmmmmmmm..........

It looks as though I might be looking at getting a job with Stratco.....

They phoned me yesterday wanting me to come in for a Psych Profile (Which I am assured they do to all their employees above the rank of monkey, and it's not because they think I'm a crazy).

I have to ring them today and schedule a time.

Interesting times are ahead it seems.

Grrrrr [06 Oct 2006|07:49am]
[ mood | apathetic ]

I'm sick of arguments. I'm sick of pressure and stress. I'm just sick and bloody tired of some of the bullshit that goes on.

I'm just in one of those 'I can't be bothered' moods.

*Sigh* *Mutter* *Grumble* *Rant*

All better now.

Illusion and Faith :: X-Posted from Mindsay & dA [04 Oct 2006|07:41am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Two of my more recent pieces. They are not my best work, but they are passable.

Enjoy (Or not as suits you).




Just to plug another of my pieces of work. If you go to my DeviantArt account (www.Blademaster777.DeviantArt.Com) you can see the first (*thinks* A 1, B 2, C 3, D 4, E 5, F 6) 6 chapters of a story that I am writing. It is nothing special, little more than sketched to be padded out at a later date, but it has gotten further than anything else I have ever done like it.

I am really hanging out for the two week break at the end of the year. I so need it, I am dead on my feet.

Have a good one.

P.S. WooHoo go me. I just realised that my post count has reached double figures.
