So, let's talk about some non-politisized shit.
First thing first: Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" is coming up, and being the derp I am, I didn't know it was supposed to be trilogy. What the fuck. How do you drag a really concise and linear (until the end) plot into THREE TWO-HOUR MOVIES? HOOOOOW? Jackson. The fuck you're doing. Jackson. STAHP.
On my part, I'll be a happy drunkard for the next week, since corporate parties are kicking in. Besides drinking and shit, this also means that presents from companies start flowing – this New Year's tradition of showering journalists with mostly useless, but sometimes pretty nifty gifts is why I like industrial IT journalism. People trying to please you, it's so nice.
I really hope that nVidia, Huwaei or Microsoft pack something in Ded Moroz's bag for me)
Speaking of presents, my birthday is coming up this here Sunday, and this year I'm so updated with gadgets and gear SWAG that all I could think of in terms of giving myself is a hooker and a Samsung hi-fi system.
Yerp. But there's still my humble wishlist:
Yes, I want a Windows Phone and a Nokia. But, my current Galaxy Note is still live and kicking so it'd be too dumb to sell it while it's scratched and not in mint condition. So guess this black matte slab of WinPhone beauty is up to next year.
Tactical gloves, Blackhawk, awww yisss. Realized I need some after going to the shooting range last week. Been freezing my fingers off.
And the up-coming hit – a civilian (semi-auto) version of Kalashnikov AK-12. When this fucker was introduced to hit the markets in 2013, it made me postpone the acquisition of a Saiga, so now patiently waiting and collecting funds for it.
From guns to gaming. Damn, been replaying Spec Ops again, with the supervision of Brian Keogh's excellent novel-length essay about the game, "Killing is Harmless" - thanks to
(aka WM) who've sent me the PDF. Google that shit, it's worth it.
Parallely been playing some of dat "Hitman: Absolution" and "Halo 4", but in careful doses, because they're my main gaming attractions for the upcoming 3-week vacations. What can I say – great games insofar, but I have a feeling that Spec Ops spoiled a lot of fun in gaming for me.
Speaking about vacation – can't wait to ski, and to finish all the art shit I've been postponing, including – YES – giftart that I've been lazily scribbling under the workload at my editorial. So expect epic shit rolling after New Years, after I sober up. Speaking of it, I'm gonna attempt a "Redraw This after X Years" meme and keeping my resolution, I'm drawing more and more on my Note 10.1 tablet and uploading this shit.
Hrm. Another thing of interest – I have Skype now, complete with a Plantronics gaming headset (courtesy of
, hehe), so I'm available for some DUH REAL LIFE chatting and shit. You're all stalkers, and this is crazy, but here's my msn tag – live:kombatxunit88 – so Skype me, maybe?
And speaking of all this shit, here's two promotions, be sure to tell the artists how much they rock:
