Watched THE AMERICAN the other night. It was a pretty old movie accompanied by a great George Clooney performance (as usual). My favourite part of the whole movie: the opening credits. They were simple, yet cool. They also had one of the best film scores I’ve heard in a LONG time!
Seen a lot of proof this week that life’s amazingly fragile and you never know when your last day may be, so I NEED to start living my life to its absolute fullest. This means less video games — less spending money on items that, while enjoyable, are not needed. More time laughing and smiling, writing and learning, loving my time awake more than the times that I’m not. I’m gonna be 30 this year and life doesn’t go on forever. I need to start living.
"I’m not a difficult actor to work with. I don’t come to the director with questions about my character’s motivation. If the character is happy, I make a happy face. If he’s sad, I make a sad face. That’s my full acting technique."
Anyone else hoping that Namco includes a new installment of Tekken Bowl Tournament with their upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2? I just bought Tekken Hybrid and I completely forgot how insanely fun Tekken Bowl was. I could literally play it all day!
Oh, and just to clarify how bad Homefront is, I quit it on the very last chapter. Why? Because it froze on me three times in a row after defeating a complete onslaught of evil Koreans. Yep… games don’t get much more broken than this.
Funny how I went right from playing one of the best First-Person Shooters of all time (RAGE) to playing one of the worst ones ever (Homefront). Seriously, if you want to play a FPS with mediocre graphics, clunky gameplay and that freezes on you at least twice every chapter, go buy Homefront. You won’t regret your decision.
I guess I’ll go ahead and say Happy New Year. Resolutions this year consist of big changes: further myself as a writer by actually becoming more educated; move away, whether it be just done the street or thousands of kilometers away; lose some of this repulsive gut that I’ve grown over the last year; to hopefully slow down the growth of these grey hairs that I’ve been gaining lately. Lots of things on my mind and I hope to accomplish a lot of them.
