I tried to write this last night, unfortunately I.E. error'ed on me and I was really not in the mood to repeat myself. My favourite Solo Artist has to be Chamillionaire. I know Rap and Hip Hop isn't the favourite genre of alot of people from GTP and isn't held as highly with alot of y'all as it is with me. Still, it really does have a lot of talent, and mainstream Rap isn't as terrible as alot of people are claiming. Anyways, Chamillionaire is a great Artist, known as The Mixtape Messiah, he has a huge variety of rap styles. He can immitate many other artists and does on a few of his songs. His lyrical ability is immense and probably the best in the game at this point. He drops alot of Mixtapes, hence the nickname and he tends not to curse on his music.
One of my favourite verses is the third from the song "Void In My Life" Which I'll put up now.
A religion is what you missing
Someone tell me how can it make people panic
Mention God and all the weak people vanish.
Take God, your woman, and your family
Even your own life for granted.
Until you're slanted on the planet with your face in the granite.
And I won't have it, I don't wanna see my culture divided
So I decided to remind that there's a choice and provide it
So put your ego to the side, soon as you're standing beside it,
Raise your right hand, and, let the spirit know it's invited,
No need to fight it, I just wanna make it right 'fore they bury me,
Cause the truth is like therapy, plus my conscious is tearin' me,
Into piece, this deck that I was dealt, was not really fair to me
To the solderis that pass to the game, we missin' you trribly.
Thank my family especially, in my mind like telepathy,
Stayin' humbles the reciple, Keep my faith and he blessin' me
I use the energy left in me, to make sure they respectin' me
Walk the Steps of my destiny, like I know he protectin' me
I'm a leader, Believe-the people won't get to see less of me,
No they won't see the death of me or no police arresting me
I live life so succesfully, I just show 'em the best of me,
On another level mentally, this position was meant for me.
That's from memory so It could have a few typos, I'm not going to proof read it, It's pretty accurate. His rapid delivery on that song and the instrumental itself makes this song amazing. Even though I don't believe in God, this does really give some input what real faith in this "higher power" can do for you. He has alot of great songs, and his Mixtape Messiah tapes are better than alot of artists albums. I'll spare posting the song, because like I said, not y'all thing.
Today is the day of the funeral, I'm watching my niece. The weather is horrible too, I'm glad I'm not going. It doesn't mean a thing to me. I really don't see the benefit of it. Stick a body in the furnace and let it be done with. No prayers needed, no hymms or music. No sadness, sorrow or regret. We all die, that's the way I see it. It leads to nothing, you just cease to be, and that for me is a good thing. I don't fear death, and I don't worry about it. I can honestly say that if I had 24 hours to live, I'd not act irratically or with any kind of dread. I'd go through my day and hopefully die in my sleep. My only wish is for it to be a quick death. I have no intention of suffering, I would hope that if I got the point where I was, I'd be able to end my own life. That sounds a little dark, but I'm thinking practically. I'm here by pure chance. me personally, not the human race, even though that's also applicable there. And I'm me because of the events that have shaped and guided my life. I'm happy, I've always been happy. I look at everything logically, and death is garaunteed, so why be afraid of it? Living forever would suck...
So Wednesday saw the returning of my console. It came to the door in it's white box, and I ran down the stairs to sign for it. As I got there my dad had the door open and I said I'd sign for it. The guy looked at me and laughed and said "they always run to the door when I drop these things off" Which I thought was a pretty funny statement. I told him I'd been waiting two weeks for it and he said that was pretty much standard for MS.
Anyway, I got my console back and I made my first port of call to be the Demo section of the Dashboard. Searched for Resident Evil and set it for download. I didn't get it until the next morning because my time was a little short. I jumped right into the game played through the first level without much trouble. I'd been hearing about the chainsaw wielding manic with his head in a parcel since the demo release. I was expecting a tough fight due to the way people were talking about it, but to my surprise I found it was very easy. Snipe him in the head and he stops, uppercut him and get your partner to kick him, and repeat. Pretty simple stuff.
I tried to play on Co-Op with an unnamed member of GTP. This person wasn't really interested in Teamwork, and decided they were going to run off while I attempted to kill the axe-dude. This annoyed me, but I kept chill and said "work together, teamwork is the key" in a cliche'd kinda cartoon way, over-exaggerated and as cheesy as the most basic of pizzas. However, they still did not get the jist of what I was trying to say and again, ran off and we died. This frustrated me, so I had a go at them for their lack of directive and turned it off. Never to play it with them again, we played some GTA though, and that was aiight. hough it seems people in Cops N Crooks are supper powerful now and can kill you with one shot from an SMG, seriously pathetic.
After my recent demonstration of repairing my Ipod (which is working great may I add) I've decided to branch out and give myself a new hobby that I want to get up and running. I would like to start building PC's. I know a few people who could do with an upgrade and have thought about buying a new console, but I think I can do it for them, for cost and without much issue too. Obviously I shall look into it with a real keen eye, but it's something I'm very interested in and would love to take a pop at.
Speaking of Computers, I've just noticed the topic. I've been literate with a PC since Windows 95 if not before, which was the first operating system I ever tried. It was all new to me but I picked it all up very quickly, and it's basically just anvanced from there. I can do most things, and dont' really struggle with anything, so I'd say I'm computer literate to an advanced degree. I'll leave it at that.
I've been playing Soul Calibur 4 (?) and frankly I don't see the big thing about this game, it's alright but not great. I much prefer Top Spin 3. I'm not even into Tennis but I thought I'd give it a try. Anybody play? w00t.
Have a nice day, regardless of the weather. Stay Good
Catch Y'all later.
